Attach fabric to a strip of cardstock to form a pocket. Apply glue to the strip to hold it in place for sewing, or if you are not sewing, make sure that there is enough glue to hold the pocket in place. Sew down the sides of the page to finish the edge.

That red poppy fabric really helped pull this page together. I love how the vellum looks and that you can see through to the other paper.

Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Day 29 of #useitupjuly and I’m sharing a Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial. Going through my stash and creating junk journal pages in various colors. Since I just completed the Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial and had supplies out I made the light blue page.

Supplies used for the Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

For this Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial, I begin by referring back to my Napkin Embellishment Tutorial. Where I used a glue stick to adhere a napkin to a piece of paper. Separate the layers of the napkin so that only the design remains. Coat a piece of paper – like the dictionary page with a glue stick, work quickly and be generous but not crazy. Lay the napkin face down and then press the page covered with the glue stick on the backside of the napkin. Press gently and it should adhere.

Next, add stitching around the edge and add a scrap of fabric for a tab. This page could be left as it is with the pretty napkin, but let’s add a little pocket. Layering scraps of paper and adding the digital images from Calico Collage along with the words from my shop create a pocket. Adhere on three sides of this piece to hold a tag or two.

Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Flip the page over and attach a pocket to the left side. In my case, it was a leftover piece from an old project that I didn’t use. Check out my Pocket tutorials for other ideas to use for pockets.

Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Attach a folded piece of paper on the right side to create a pocket. Add another piece of paper to make the top layer thicker if necessary. On my page I wanted it to be the same shade of blue so I attached a piece of text weight paper after stamping and adding stickers.

Fill the pockets with tags and booklets to journal upon and enjoy!

Making these pages has been a great way to use up leftover pieces. I like finding ways to use things instead of storing a partial sheet of stickers. Have fun using it up!

Graph Paper and Glimmer Mist Junk Journal Page

Another from the Fairy Garden Junk Journal series tutorial. Graph Paper and Glimmer Mist Junk Journal Page, a quick easy page to create for a junk journal. Using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on graph paper gives it a beautiful shimmer and that yummy crinkle sound that so many paper artists love to hear. Adding some stamps and notepaper with washi tape help to complete the page.

Using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and a stencil apply color to the page, on the back spray without the stencil. Allow to dry or use a heat tool to speed up the drying time.

Finding new ways to create easy but beautiful junk journal pages is a lot of fun for me. I like to see how I can alter things to make these a pretty addition.

Every time I use Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on a project it brings a smile to my face. I just love being able to add a touch of color and shimmer.

What are your favorite colors? Depending on my mood I like a variety of colors. Taffy and Precious Metals are some of my favorite soft colors to use from Tattered Angels.

Coloring book page into Junk Journal Page

Continuing on the Fairy Garden Junk Journal Series. I love finding new ways to use items in my stash. For this project, I came up with the idea of Coloring book page into Junk Journal Page. For my project the page was uncolored, but a colored page can be used too! Adding images from the Fairy Garden digital journal kit from Calico Collage helped to tie it into the journal I’m making.

Coloring book page into Junk Journal Page

Super quick video tutorial on Coloring book page into Junk Journal Page.

Cut the coloring book page out of the book. I like to cut the height the same as my other journal pages. Then on one of the sides, fold over about 2 inches to create a pocket. Using Aleene’s Tacky glue adhere the top and bottom of this pocket in place.

Cut the images from the Fairy Garden digital journal kit. Use Vintage Photo Distress ink around the edges of the paper. Assemble the envelope using a glue stick. Make sure that you don’t glue the envelope closed.

Add the journal cards and envelope to the pocket and it is ready to be added to the junk journal.

Look at the things you may already have differently. Those coloring pages from the kids would make great pages in a junk journal. Have fun making your own.

Valentine Junk Journal Page

Since Valentines is just around the corner and I joined the Valentine Junk Journal Page swap inside the Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook group I thought I should get one made. It was easy to turn this into a video tutorial showing how to transform junk mail into a journal page, using craft paint and images from Calico Collage. I even used a body butter box for a couple of tags.

Video Tutorial for the Valentine Junk Journal Page.

It is possible to alter a piece of junk mail for a junk journal. Lots of people say that it is hard to make something pretty. But if you get some acrylic craft paint you can do beautiful things.

Valentine Junk Journal Page

Using an old credit card or gift card is a great way to spread paint onto paper. It goes on in thin layers that dry fast. Once all the layers are dry it is easy to write on top of the paint.

Valentine Junk Journal Page

While for this project I used digital images it is possible to find pretty images in things you may already have. Take a look at that empty tissue box, chances are there is a pretty pattern that can be used. Flip through old magazines and look for flowers and other images you can use. Those old greeting cards you saved for years are also great items to use for something pretty.

Valentine Junk Journal Page

Really the key is to enjoy the process and have fun looking for items you can use. Like the empty Victoria’s Secret Body Butter Box. The box is a pretty shade of pink and had the word Love so I had to use it as a journal tag.

Valentine Junk Journal Page

I’m looking forward to swapping with the assigned partner. It is so much fun to see what others make. Getting a junk journal page in a swap helps me learn new things or come up with new ideas.

Planner Page into Junk Journal Page

When digging through my papers I found an old planner that my brother gave to me and thought I need to turn this Planner Page into Junk Journal Page. So today I’m sharing how I turned it into the junk journal page using Tattered Angels Glimmer mists, Scrapbook papers, and images from Calico Collage’s Fairy Garden digital journal kit.

Video Tutorial showing how to make Planner Page into Junk Journal Page.

Taking an old Planner Page and using as a junk journal page is another way to use up those old things that are laying around. Begin by trimming the page to the size that matches your other pages for the journal. Or leave it the original size for a larger page.

Apply Walnut Gold and Kraft Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist through a stencil on the Planner Page. I made my stencil using my Cricut Explore Air and write on transparency. I love how I can custom make stencils for projects like this one.

Cut scrapbook paper the same width as the planner page when in landscape and about 6 inches tall. Then fold in half (hot dog style – a term I learned a few weeks ago to indicate that it will be long and skinny like a hotdog). Attach to the planner page on the bottom covering up the holes using Aleene’s Tacky glue.

Spray a scrap of purple cardstock with Tattered Angels to alter the color. Then attach scraps of notebook paper by folding over the top edge a little and stapling in place.

Attach the floral element with a glue stick and add the journal cards into the pockets. Now enjoy the page you made by Planner Page into Junk Journal Page.

Envelope Napkin Pocket Junk Journal Page

Continuing with my Fairy Garden junk journal tutorials I decided to share an Envelope Napkin Pocket Junk Journal Page I created. This Junk Journal Page is truly mixed media. Mixing Acrylic Paint, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, napkin, fibers, book pages and old map and more to create a great page for the Fairy Garden Junk Journal.

Envelope Napkin Pocket Junk Journal Page

Supplies Used to make the Envelope Napkin Pocket Junk Journal Page.

Video showing how I made this Envelope Napkin Pocket Junk Journal Page.

For this Envelope Napkin Pocket Junk Journal Page I created I started with a page out of a street map book. Trim the page to the size needed for the journal, or if you are lucky you can leave it the size it is and go to the next step.

Envelope Napkin Pocket Junk Journal Page

Using the craft paints and Tattered Angles Glam and an old key card, gift card or old credit card spread the paints all over the page on both sides. Keep the layers thin and it will dry quickly. While you have the paint out, cover the old book page – this will become pockets on the JJ.

Apply Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists through a stencil on the map page and the book pages that were painted. This will give another layer of yummy color that sparkles. Spray through the stencil on the envelope on both sides. When there is spray on the stencil apply two index cards to the stencil to pick up the Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

Separate the napkin removing the extra layers. Some napkins have three layers some only two. If you can’t get the layers apart, try putting a piece of tape on the back and gently pulling. This seems to work with some napkins that won’t come apart.

A glue stick is perfect for attaching napkins. It is easier to apply a generous amount of glue stick to the map and then lay the napkin over the glue and gently press and smooth. Since there will be a pocket on one side there is no need to cover the whole page and part of the napkin can be folded over to the other side and adhered in the same manner.

Cut the book page in half as you would read the page to create two pieces to fit on the bottom of the map to create pockets. I like to turn the edges under a little so that it is sturdy. Attach to the map with Aleene’s Tacky Glue.

Add the embellishments to the new pockets. Lay the eyelash yarn down and then apply glue to the domino label element and press over the yarn. I find that doing it this way helps keep the yarn in place and I don’t have to apply so much glue that gets messy.

Decorate the envelope using the corner pieces from the Fairy Garden journal kit. Fold the envelope in half. Using washi tape attach to the map on the non-pocket side but just to the side of the center fold on the page. This way it will be a full envelope that can have items added and it won’t be caught in the binding.

Finish adding journal cards to the page and now it is ready to be added to the Fairy Garden junk journal.

It is fun to use old papers that might have been thrown out. Adding paint and glimmer mist changes the papers into something beautiful and new.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Happy New Year everyone. Today I’m sharing a Happy New Year Junk Journal Page Tutorial. This Junk Journal Page is for the Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook group for a swap.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

The idea is that we all trade pages and then we can use these in our junk journals. The size of the pages are 8 inches tall by 10.5 inches wide is folded in half to make an 8 x 5.25 inch.

Supplies used in making the Happy New Year Junk Journal Page.

Video Tutorial for the Happy New Year Junk Journal Page.

This Happy New Year Junk Journal Page is super easy to create. Using a 12 x 12 sheet of scrapbook paper that has a light color or print that goes with your theme is helpful.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

Using the Fiskars paper trimmer and a stylis score at the 8-inch mark down one side. Rotate the paper and score at 10.5 inches. Fold up the 4 inches at the bottom. Next, fold over the 1.5-inch flap to the smooth side of the paper. On the flap turn the corner of the lower flap down to give a finished edge. Fold the page in half with the 4-inch pocket at the bottom and now on the front of the page.

Now that the page has been folded you can now see where to decorate with stamps and the stencil. Once the page has been stamped and sprayed let it dry for a moment and then added lace to the flap and the pocket. I use a glue stick to hold the lace in place and then sew the lace on my sewing machine.

Adhere the flap and pocket to the page with the Best Glue Ever and set aside.

Assemble the words and numbers, add the rhinestones with the Best Glue Ever and Embellie Jellie. Adding flatback rhinestones to the project was so easy using ScraPerfects, Best Glue Ever and Embellie Gellie.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

Attach the words and 2018 to the page with the Best Glue Ever. Then add the journal cards and tuck spot.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

Making one of these junk journal pages is so much easier than trying to plan a whole journal at one time. I find that if I think about one page (it actually creates four pages when added to a journal) it is much easier for me.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

When you are out looking at paper take a look at the die cut sheets. there might be one that would make a great stencil to use with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

Winter Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Sharing a Tutorial for a Winter Junk Journal Page made for a swap inside Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook Group. Making these monthly pages are a lot of fun.

Winter Junk Journal Page

The concept is that a page measuring 8 inches tall by 10.5 inches wide is folded in half to make an 8 x 5.25 inch page that can be added to a junk journal. The group decided that it was easier to swap pages than a whole journal. Each person will have pages they can add to a junk journal or they can make one junk journal with all the pages.

Here is a video Tutorial Winter Junk Journal Page.

Items used for this Winter Junk Journal Page

The method for this page is very simple. Choose a page that has an area that can be cut into a pocket. Cut the corner and adhere this piece to scrap of paper. My pages are printed on standard copy paper and I wanted the pocket to be thicker.

Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Use the Brutus Monroe Surface ink – Sea and the Ranger Blending Tool to add color to the edges of this cut piece.

Adhere the main page with a glue stick to another scrap paper to give a finished backside to the page and to give a foundation where the corner was cut free.

Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Sew lace on the edge of the pocket. Then Sew the pocket on the page. I went ahead and sewed all around the page.

Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Assemble the page. Prior to the video, I created altered paperclips and journal cards using Calico Collage Simply Winter junk journal kit.

Junk Journal Page Tutorial

I like trying new things when making my junk journals. I hope that seeing the Tutorial on this Winter Junk Journal Page has inspired you.

Magnificent Junk Journal Page

Welcome to my blog. Today I’m sharing how to make a Magnificent Junk Journal Page. Using stamps from Brutus Monroe, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and various scraps of paper I share how to make a Magnificent Junk Journal page.

Magnificent Junk Journal Page

What are your favorite themes to use in a Junk Journal? Mine varies depending on my mood. Some are chosen because of the digital kit or a favorite stamp set that I want to use.

Supplies used for making the Magnificent Junk Journal Page
Beautiful Stamp Set from Brutus Monroe
Be Brave from Brutus Monroe
Detail ink – Raven from Brutus Monroe
Surface ink – Cabbage
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Emerald Green
Prima paper flowers
Envelope Die from Tim Holtz
Tulip Glitter Paint

Napkin
Stickers from Dollar Tree
Sewing Machine

The inspiration for making this Magnificent Junk Journal Page was from Liz Costin. Recently I was the swap coordinator for a page swap for Friendly Junk Journal People and I had the pleasure of looking at all of the pages before swapping. I loved what Liz did with her pages so I asked if I could make a tutorial with her pages. She agreed so here I am sharing. 😉

Here is a video showing how to make a Magnificent junk journal page.

Since we are doing page swaps in our group I decided to follow the size requirement that we set in the group for the pages. My page is 8 inches tall by 10.5 inches wide.

When I’m working in a journal it needs to have places to write. Isn’t that what most journals are about? Even though I may not like my handwriting I want to have plenty of room to record memories or notes. That is why this Magnificent Junk Journal Page has pockets to hold journal paper.

Magnificent Junk Journal Page

Every time I make a junk journal page I feel good about using the things I have in my stash. You can make trash into treasure with a little work.
