I made a Valentine Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Journal Kit. This kit is so beautiful I just had to make another journal using these papers. Many of the pages can be used outside of Valentines and I know I’ll be printing more of these for other projects.
For this journal I decided to make the journal out of 11 in. x 17 in. card stock folded into thirds with pockets. There are lots of tutorials out there on how to make a journal like this so I won’t take the time to explain. But if you are interested I’ll make a follow up post.
Once I had the pages defined I started distressing the papers and adding each of the printed images or scrap papers to the pages.
Every page has something added. Either it has a pocket or a tuck spot. All kinds of places to add notes or photos. Lots of little bits to write love notes or memories.
My thought was this would be a great journal to write love notes to that one that you love and give it to them. What fun would they have going through each page looking at each item. They could enjoy seeing the beautiful papers and seeing what you add to the book.
Here is a list of some of the items used:
Calico Collage Valentines Love Journal Kit
Calico Collage Vintage Valentines
Calico Collage Romantic Lovers
Prima Paper Flowers
Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Brutus Monroe Detail Ink
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists
Pages from an old book

Scraps of Burlap
Paper Clip Embellishments
Hand made Papers
A flip through video shows all of the pages and the items added.
This video is a process video that shows how the book was made. It took over 3 hours to make this journal. Actually more as some of the time was planning on how to create the journal.
I really enjoyed making this Valentine Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Journal Kit. There will be more journals offered in my shop so keep coming back to see what I have created.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today.
