Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal

Hello friends. today I’m sharing a custom junk journal I made for one of my fans. Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal uses lots of purples. The digital images – Among the Stars from Calico Collage were used in this junk journal. But I altered these with a scan of a paper I created to give the pages a darker purple and to tone down the pinks. I love how it turned out!

Here is a flip through video showing the Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal.

When I saw the purple fabric that was used for the cover I just knew I found the perfect piece. Since she said she loved purple, black and stars it was easy to pull items from my stash and get to work.

I even made three pages out of canvas from Canvas Corp Brands. These pages were sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Fully Purple using a stencil I made on my Cricut Explore Air. Then I added a fabric and lace pocket and more fabric and beaded trim to finish out the page. It is so pretty.

It was fun to do a little mixed media inside this Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal. Used some old street maps for Oklahoma City and covered those with purple paints. I love being able to alter the color of paper.

Using my Cricut Explore Air I made two different star stencils. One was what I call a waterfall of stars the other is an all over star pattern. Fully Purple Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist was the main one I used for this Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal.

Take a look at those supplies you have, it could be that spraying with something like Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists will take something blah to wow. In this journal, I was able to alter the color of paper, canvas, and even eyelash yarn.

Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal

Another custom order to share with you today. It is a Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal made for Carrie, one of the members of the Friendly Junk Journal People. She asked me to make a custom Planner Junk Journal when she saw my Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal

Once Carrie gave me a list of themes she liked I knew what I wanted to do. Make a Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal. These seemed to go together – flying things and birds could eat dragonflies. lol

The following Digital Journal kits from Calico Collage were used. Song Bird and Dragonfly Delight. I created homemade stencils to use with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Lots of stamps from my stash were used as well.

Flip through video of the Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal.

One of my friends gave me a 2017 Happy Planner in August. She picked up this planner on clearance and didn’t realize that it only had one month left before it was out of date. Knowing that I make Junk Journals she gave the planner to me to use.

Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal

These pages were great foundations to add other elements and I did so by adding notebook paper to one side and painted paper to the other. This created four pockets on the page to use.

Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal

One day I picked up a stamp set with months and numbers and I knew it would be perfect for a Tab paper punch I have had for years and I was right! The stamps are the perfect size to fit on the tabs so I created two sets one for the pages the other for the Monthly Calendar Journal cards.

Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal

For the cover of this Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal, I used fabric I picked up that I thought would be perfect for Carrie. There are lots of positive phrases and beautiful images all over the fabric. It matched perfectly to the Song Bird and Dragonfly Delight digital images.

Making a custom Junk Journal is fun and a challenge. Getting the themes and colors that a customer wants can sometimes be a challenge but so far I’ve been very lucky that the custom orders so far have been super fun to make.

Dragonfly Junk Journal

Since March I’ve been asking Norella from Calico Collage for a Dragonfly Junk Journal kit. Well, she made one and I finally got time to make it into a journal and made three journal kits as well.

Dragonfly Junk JournalDragonfly Junk Journal

This Dragonfly Junk Journal measures 6 x 8.5 inches with a 1.5 inch spine. There are 3 signatures with a total of 19 sheets of paper to make a total of 76 pages. The cover is fabric over chipboard and a little glitter tule sewed on top. Love the dragonfly broach I attached to the cover. It can be removed and worn. 🙂

Dragonfly Junk Journal

I made the dragonfly journal charms, here is the blog post with all the details on how to make a dragonfly journal charm. This is one of my favorite styles of journal charms to make, I can detach from the journal and where it on a necklace or attach to other items.

Dragonfly Junk Journal

Here is a flip through video of the Dragonfly Junk Journal and the kits I made.

Using Dragonfly Delight by Calico Collage for the images was such a joy. When Norella told me the kit was ready I was over the moon! The images she created and used are so wonderful. Love the colors too! Also used the Domino and Bottle Cap Dragonfly Delight images.

While out shopping I found the beautiful fabric with the flowers and butterflies and knew that it was a perfect match for this Dragonfly Junk Journal.

Dragonfly Junk Journal

For the journal cards inside this Dragonfly Junk Journal, I wanted different styles and sizes. It was fun to make different journal cards to have variety inside this journal.

Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal

Sewing lace on the edges of the pages really does add a little something special.  I love using the zig-zag stitch over the lace.

Dragonfly Junk Journal

Since I didn’t have a dragonfly stencil I made two using my Cricut and transparency film. It was easy to make, found silhouette image of a dragonfly, duplicated and turned the images to make a random pattern and told the Cricut Explore Air to cut. Now I have a stencil I can use over and over!

Because the Simply Winter journal Kits were such a great hit I decided to make three Dragonfly Junk Journal kits. These kits have over 90 pieces and include the items necessary for the cover and inside pages.

Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal

For the most part, the journals have the same elements, these might have different images but the same amount of pages and journal cards inside these Dragonfly Junk Journal Kits.

Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk JournalDragonfly Junk Journal

Used a lot of Tulip Glitter paint on this junk journal. The glimmer it adds to the images is so pretty. Of course, I have to use lots of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists inside this Dragonfly Junk Journal and the kits too.

Making the Dragonfly Junk Journal and kits allowed me to use lots of my dragonfly stamps. I love seeing the images on the pages.

How to make a cover for Christmas Junk Journal

Start playing the Christmas music. lol Today I’m sharing How to make a cover for Christmas Junk Journal. Using Fabric, Cardstock, Calico Collage journal kit – Golden Christmas along with my sewing machine I share How to make a cover for Christmas Junk Journal.

How to make a cover for Christmas Junk Journal

Almost daily I get questions on how to make a cover for a junk journal. I decided to share a video with the steps I take for a cover. How to make a cover for Christmas Junk Journal.

What you will need for this project. How to make a cover for Christmas Junk Journal
Pages – Calico Collage Golden Christmas, I have mine stamped and sprayed, ready to add trim
Fabric for outside cover
Chipboard – can use a cereal box or purchase chipboard or even an old book.
Cardstock for inside covers
Photocopy of music out of an old hymnal
Glue Stick
Aleene’s Tacky Glue
Sewing machine – Mine is old but works great.
Needles I use Organ Flat Shank Size 80/12, Use what is recommended by your sewing machine. 
Thread of your choice – I used red.
Ribbon
Washi Tape
Distress Ink, Black Soot, and Vintage Photo
Fiskars Scissors – to trim the thread\
Waxed Linen Thread
Bookbinders Needle
Bookbinder’s awl in a kit.

Tip for making a cover from scratch. Know the size of your pages first. Once I have all my pages done and I stack them into Signatures (a group of folded papers) I measure. Measure the thickness of the pages. In my case, these were about 1 inch. The height of the page needs to be measured. My pages are 8 inches tall. The width next. Mine is 5.25 inches wide without lace, with lace 6 inches.

The book insides measure 8 x 5.25 with a one-inch spine. I want there to be plenty of room so I then add a little to each and end up with the following. The height 8.5, the width 6.25 and then the spine is 1.25.

Cut the chipboard two pieces 8.5 x 6.25 one piece 8.5 x 1.25. These will be the insides of your cover for stability. Layout these pieces and then measure a large rectangle. In my case, it was 16 inches wide by 10 inches tall.

Adhere the chipboard to the cover (fabric or paper) with Aleene’s Tacky glue. Use a bone folder to smooth out the glue and for the cover to adhere.

Fold over the edges to the inside of the cover. Again use Aleene’s Tacky Glue.

Once the cover outside is complete, I will embellish the cover if I plan to sew, I do it now. For this Christmas Junk Journal, I used images from Calico Collage, copy of music, scrap of paper, washi tape and ribbon. Just play around with the composition until you see what you like.

Create pockets if you want them on the inside cardstock pieces. Adhere the inside pages to the cover with the spine being first. (if you want to do a hidden spine on a book you would sew to the 1.25 x 8.5 inch spine piece before you adhere it to the cover.

Have you wanted to know How to make Napkin Embellishments? Today is your lucky day. In this post, I share How to make Napkin Embellishments for a Mermaid Junk Journal.

Napkin Embellishments

Supplies Used in How to make Napkin Embellishments
Seashell Napkin – I found mine at Tuesday Morning
Jot Glue Sticks – any brand will work
Sheet music

Sewing machine with a dark green thread

The method I used was very simple. Use a glue stick to adhere music and map paper to the back side of the one ply of the napkin. Trim to size wanted. Sew zigzag stitch around edges. Apply distress inks to edges of each element.

Napkin Embellishments

Add cheesecloth and other embellishments to the pieces. Adhere to journal page using Aleene’s Tacky Glue.

Napkin Embellishments

Using napkins as an embellishment inside a junk journal is easy and beautiful. Each time a napkin is used you can get a different look, depending on the other elements you use.

Napkin Embellishments

What I like about using a napkin is I can create several elements to go into the junk journal and thus carry out the same theme. Or I can use only one of the napkin embellishments for a focal point.

Napkin Embellishments

There really isn’t any limit to what you can do with these new napkin embellishments in your junk journals.

Stay tuned for the tutorial on A Mermaid Tale Junk Journal where I used these elements.

Junk Journal Note Cards

Junk Journal Note Cards, what are these and how to make them. This is the reason for the post today. There are so many ways to make journal note cards for a junk journal. Today I’m just sharing one idea that I hope will inspire you.

Junk Journal Note Cards

For years I have collected paper items. It goes in stages of collecting and using. When I originally found the papers I had other plans for them and used some for those ideas. Now that I’m making Junk Journals these paper items are getting a new use.

Junk Journal Note Cards Supplies
Page out of a dictionary – I used the page with Love defined
Bingo Card
Watercolor Paper
Glue Stick
Aleene’s Tacky Glue
Distressed Ink – Vintage Photo
Blending tool

Scrap paper.
Sewing Machine

The supply list is short and simple. I’m sure you can find a few things to make Junk Journal Note Cards in your stash too.

Here is a video on How to make Junk Journal Note Cards.

The process is very simple. Selecting the items from my stash I proceeded to cut the papers as necessary.

Using Distressed Ink – Vintage Photo I added a bit of color around the edges of the papers.

Layered the dictionary page onto watercolor paper using a glue stick and then sewed with a zig zag stitch on a standard sewing machine.

Junk Journal Note Cards

Once the sewing was done I then proceeded to layer the other elements. One of the elements was cutting the definition for the word Love and layering on top. When I make journal cards I like for these to remain flat so that it is easy to write on the backside.

Junk Journal Note Cards

Making Junk Journal Note Cards is a lot of fun and a great way to use up bits and pieces that you may have in your stash. Take a look around and see if you can find some cool images inside a magazine, junk mail, old photos, and more.

Here are a few other Junk Journal Note Cards that I made using this same process.

Alter Envelopes Halloween Theme

I’ve decided to share how I Alter Envelopes Halloween Theme today. My latest project is a Halloween Junk Journal and I thought it might be nice to see how to alter envelopes for this Halloween Theme.

Alter Envelopes Halloween Theme

Here is a Video on How to Alter Envelopes Halloween Theme.

It has been fun collecting envelopes. My family helps by saving the envelopes that their mail comes in so that I can alter these. What I enjoy is being able to take something that is destined for the trash and making it into something new.

Even though the envelopes I made are going inside a junk journal these can be altered to set back out in the mail. Years ago the stamp club I was a member of would decorate envelopes for our newsletters. Every month we were to bring a couple of envelopes so that the newsletter editor could mail out the newsletter in a decorated envelope. Getting those decorated envelopes was so much fun. Little works of art on the outside to hold information on the inside.

Alter Envelopes Halloween Theme Alter Envelopes Halloween Theme Alter Envelopes Halloween Theme

To Alter Envelopes Halloween Theme you will want a few things. Envelopes, Stamps, scraps of paper, washi tape, sewing machine (optional), cheese cloth, Tattered Anges Glimmer Mists, Halloween images (I used some from Calico Collage – All Hallows Eve digital journal kit, some distressed ink and I also used Brutus Monroe Detail ink – Raven.

Once all the supplies are gathered cut the envelope open. For my project I wanted the envelopes to be no longer than 7.25 inches. Some people will cut each end to make a centered envelope. I just cut off one side that had the return address. Then I cut the other side so that the envelope can open all the way up.

Cut a piece of scrap paper, in my case I used a page out of a book I’ve torn apart to the same size as the envelope. This scrap paper will become the new flap on the envelope. Apply distress ink to the flap and the envelope. Use washi tape to attach this to make a flap.

Alter Envelopes Halloween Theme

Now choose some of those stamps and images and apply these to the envelope. You can decide if you want to seal the envelopes sides with sewing, washi tape or glue. I like sewing these. Sometimes I leave it so that it can be opened all the way and journal inside.

There is no wrong way to create items for a junk journal. I hope that you enjoyed seeing how I Alter Envelopes Halloween Theme.

Bugaboo Unicorn Junk Journal

Today I’m sharing the Bugaboo Unicorn Junk Journal I made for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.  The Unicorn image is a Digi Stamp from Bugaboo.  The challenge this time on the Fantabulous Circut Challenge Blog is any thing goes.

Bugaboo Unicorn Junk Journal

The sponsor for Challenge #306 – Anything goes is:

Visit the FCCB and add your entry by the deadline.

Supplies Used for the Bugaboo Unicorn Junk Journal

This journal measures 4.5 inches wide by 6 inches tall. The inside pages are 4.25 inches wide by 5.5 inches tall. There are 10 sheets of paper for a total of 40 pages in this Bugaboo Unicorn Junk Journal.

Here is a Video on how to make this Bugaboo Unicorn Junk Journal.

There is no wrong or right way to make a junk journal. Some people think the whole journal needs to be made out of things that would be trash. Others think if any part of the journal is something other than standard paper then that is considered a junk journal. I think that anything you want to put into a journal is perfectly good!

Bugaboo Unicorn Junk Journal

Using the Bugaboo Unicorn Digi Stamp set gave me an opportunity to learn how to print and cut on my Cricut. I like that I was able to pull in all the images and decide on the size before I printed and cut the components.

Having this features sure saves the time of me having to hand cut the images. Makes life so easy.

Bugaboo Unicorn Junk Journal

I used Chameleon Pens to color the Unicorn. I love the rainbow colors in the mane. Love these pens!

Bugaboo Unicorn Junk Journal

This will be my last Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog project as it was a six-month term. I’ve learned a lot in the past six months and I’m so glad that I was a part of the FCCB. Thank you FCCB design team for being wonderful on the team.
