Supplies used for the Orange Junk Journal Page Tutorial.

Orange Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Let us begin the Orange Junk Journal Page Tutorial. Starting with a napkin, separate the layers by using a piece of clear tape on the back side to peel the layers from the printed design.

Next, select a dictionary page and cut to 8 x 10.5 inches in size apply glue stick all over one side of the page. Carefully lay this page on the smooth napkin. Gently smooth the two together. Flip the dictionary page over and apply glue stick on that side and smooth the napkin on top.

Trim off the excess napkin with a paper trimmer or scissors. We want clean edges.

Since the napkin didn’t cover all of one side of the page, let’s make a pocket using a scrap of fabric measuring 4 x 10.5. Cut a piece of cardstock at 1.25 x 10.5 and a pretty lace at 10.5 inches long.

Apply distress ink on the side and bottom edge of the strip of cardstock. Make a sandwich with the Fabric, Cardstock Strip and Lace on top and sew these layers together.

Orange Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Sew the pocket on the page and around the edges. Doing this attaches the pocket to the page and gives a decorative element around the edges too. Use a strip of a 1-inch x 3-inch piece of orange fabric to make tabs on the sides.

Select a page from the Calico Collage Natures Glory Digital journal kit and print lines on the back side. Trim page, removing the white edges around the page measuring 10.45 in width.

Spray the back side of this page through the lace stencil using the two orange colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

Fold the page and apply distress ink around the edges. Attach the printed image to the napkin side of the page without a pocket using washi tape.

Add Journal cards, envelope and tags to the pockets and the Orange Junk Journal Page Tutorial is complete.

Orange Tag Tutorial

Today I’m sharing an Orange Tag Tutorial with you. The tag will be a part of my Orange Junk Journal Page Tutorial and I wanted to give more time to make the tag so that it was easy to follow along. There are two more pages to complete and then I’ll have a rainbow done for my junk journal.

Supplies used for the Orange Tag Tutorial.

Let’s get started on this Orange Tag Tutorial. Begin with cutting a scrap of orange cardstock at 4 x 6 inches. Then cut a book page about 3.75 x 5.75 inches. Add distress ink around the edges.

Spray Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on a scrap of book page measuring 2.25-inch square and the book page topper through the Lace stencil. Mop up the excess Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists with a sheet of copy paper or book page. These make great backgrounds.

Adhere the book page using the No-Clog Writing Cap on the Best Glue Ever. A small bead of glue is all that is needed. Select a scrap of lace and adhere on top mostly on the left side of the tag.

Select a patterned paper that is 4 inches wide by 2 inches tall this will become a pocket on the tag. Cut a 2.5-inch square out of a scrap of orange cardstock. Select an image from the Calico Collage Beauty in Roses. Apply distress ink, Walnut Stain around the edges of all of these pieces.

Adhere the Circle image on top of the book page, then the book page on top of the cardstock. Next, adhere these on top of the 4 x 2-inch strip on the right side.

Take the tag base and the pocket pieces to the sewing machine. Add stitches around the perimeter of the tag, attaching the lace to the base. Ad stitches around the perimeter of the circle image and then down the sides of the pocket.

Adhere the pocket to the tag with the Best Glue Ever, making sure to only glue on three sides.

Orange Tag Tutorial

Lay down a snippet of eyelash yarn. Then, select a few paper flowers to match and adhere on the left side of the pocket over the yarn. Apply Tulip Dimensional Glitter Paint in the centers of the flowers.

Punch a hole in the top of the tag using the Crop a Dial Eyelet Setter and Hole Punch tool. Use a strip of 1 x 8-inch orange fabric and tie through the hole on the tag.

Wasn’t that an easy Orange Tag Tutorial? What color will you make for your tag?

Red Tag Tutorial

This Red Tag Tutorial was prompted by a swap with some friends. I thought why not make a tutorial for each tag I create. I had all the supplies on my desk after finishing the Red Junk Journal Page Tutorial and thought why not use what I have to make a couple of pretty tags.

Supply List for the Tiny Envelope Tutorial

The process for this Tiny Envelope Tutorial. Choose a mop-up paper or scrapbook paper or any other paper you want to make into an envelope. On the back side use the miniature envelope template and trace with the Sharpie Pen.

Tiny Envelope Tutorial

Cut the envelope out using Fiskars Scissors. Then add distress ink to the edges. Fold the envelope and add distress ink on the new folded edges.

Tiny Envelope Tutorial

Attach the word(s) that have had distress ink applied around the edges to the front of the envelope. Adhere a tiny heart in the corner to represent postage.

Aren’t these super cute? I love how these turned out. For the first nine people that place an order for the mini envelope template and the words, I will send one of these little envelopes. Hurry as I know these won’t last long.

Altered Handbag Tutorial

Day 31 of #useitupjuly, last one! Today I’m sharing an Altered Handbag Tutorial. Years ago I purchased a white coach purse with brown leather accents. This purse was one of my favorites, but it started to get dingy! So I stopped carrying it and it stayed in my closet. It is now time to transform this handbag so I can use it again.

Supplies Used for this Altered Handbag Tutorial

White Coach Purse
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Turquoise Blue, Curious, Patina, Tea Cup, Cranberry Zing, Fully Purple, Pop Rocks
Paintbrushes
Pallet to hold Glimmer Mists
Water
Scotch Guard
Leather Cleaner
Scotch Guard

Altered Handbag TutorialAltered Handbag Tutorial

Begin the Altered Handbag Tutorial by selecting a few colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. I found that the darker the color the better it dyed the fabric. Use a paintbrush that is damp with water and dip into the color one at a time and apply it to the fabric.

Altered Handbag Tutorial Altered Handbag Tutorial

Once the fabric gets wet the color will absorb better. Keep applying color until the bag has the color you want.

Let the bag dry and then apply Scotch Guard and allow to dry.

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.

Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial Video

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.

Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

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.

Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

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

Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

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!

Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Day 27 of #useitupjuly, today I’m sharing a Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial another in the series of different colors for junk journal pages. Using wallpaper, transparency film, acrylic paint scraps and a couple of digital images from Calico Collage.

Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Supplies used for the Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

This month is almost over and I’m still finding things to use up in my stash. This Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial project came about because of the requests to make different junk journal pages in different colorways.

Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

When I’m working on a project I collect all the items that could be used in a basket. Some of these items may not get used, but if these are in the basket then it is easier to see what is available to use in the project.

Wallpaper is a great way to add a pattern to a project and if you are lucky you can pick up sample books when these are retired. Just ask at your local wallpaper store if they have any discontinued wallpaper sample books.

Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Paint the back of the wallpaper to match the project, using acrylic craft paint. Using this paint is super easy and inexpensive! Apply with an old gift card and the paint dries quickly.

Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Add a pattern to the painted side using a stencil and a different shade of blue acrylic craft paint and a paintbrush. Don’t worry about being perfect, it is all about adding color and texture. Allow the paint to dry.

Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

For this Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial, I used a piece of transparency film for a pocket. Map out where you will want a pocket. In my page, there are to places for pockets. On those places add stitching. Then layer the transparency over the wallpaper design and stitch in place. This allows the pattern to be seen through the transparency and creates pockets.

Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Accordion fold the image from the Day Dreaming digital journal kit. This will be adhered on the painted side of the wallpaper, leaving a pocket to add a journal card.

Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Finish decorating the page by adding journal tags/cards and stickers.

Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Didn’t this Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial turn out really easy? Can you see how you can use items from your stash to create your own version?

Button Card Tutorial

Day 26 of #useitupjuly and it’s a Button Card Tutorial. Wow, this month is flying by so fast! A few months ago I asked Norella, creative owner of Calico Collage if she had or could make some button cards. Today I’m sharing her digital images and how I put these together to make journal cards.

Button Card Tutorial

Supplies Used for the Button Card Tutorial

Button Card Tutorial

For this Button Card Tutorial, I decided that I would do my best to use some of the buttons and some pieces of cardstock that I had in my stash. This is the perfect project if you have a bunch of buttons and scraps.

Begin by cutting the digital images from the sheet. There are twelve images that measure just under 3 x 4. Cut twelve cards 3 x 4 out of cardstock.

Use the distressing tool on the edges of the image and the card. Then apply distress inks to the image and the card.

Button Card Tutorial

Adhere the image to the card with ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever using the No-Clog Writing Cap. Sew straight and zigzag stitches around the card alternating the stitches.

Cut a piece of cardstock into a tag shape. Or use a punch to create the tag. Apply distress inks to the edges. Add decorative stitches to one side.

Button Card Tutorial

Punch holes in the card. Holes for the buttons and a hole for the string on the tag. Sew buttons by hand with needle and thread.

Cut a length of crochet thread and lay it on the distress ink pad. Press the blending tool on top of the thread and pull the thread slowly to apply color. Repeat this process until the thread is the desired color. Attach the string to the card and tie a knot.

Button Card Tutorial

Use foam dots or squares on the back side of the new button tag and attach to the card base. To add interest apply the tag at an angle.

What do you think? Did you like this Button Card Tutorial? I thought these button cards turned out super cute! Hope you have fun making some of your own.
