Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

A few weeks ago I was asked to make a Mermaid Planner Junk Journal for a friend. She wanted this as a gift for a dear friend of hers. After asking a few questions I had an idea of how I would make this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal and I began the task.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

Here is a list of a few of the items used in this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal.

Flip through video of the Mermaid Planner Junk Journal.

Once I had all the items selected for the Mermaid Planner Junk Journal it went together quickly. First I created a stencil using my Cricut, a seaweed image, and transparency film.

Lately, I’ve found that I really like making a stencil to match the theme of the junk journal I’m working inside. While looking around for stencil material I remembered I had a box of write on, wipe off transparency film. To me, this was the perfect material to use inside my cutter and I was right. I had to adjust the blade settings but once I figured out how to get it set things worked great.

The planner from Dollar Tree was a great help in this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal too. I wanted her to have space to write details or appointments and when I found this planner I knew it would work great inside the Mermaid Planner Junk Journal. Since there are over 200 pages inside she will have lots of room to write.

The fabric on this cover was a remnant I picked up a while back. There was just enough for the cover of one junk journal and I knew I wanted to use it for this one.

When the fabric was applied to the cover I decided that it needed more glam. That is when I used my fingers to spread around some Tulip Dimensional glitter paint. The glitter in this paint really helped to make this cover beautiful.

I enjoy making custom junk journals and this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal was no different. It was fun to see how I could add the planner part into the junk journal and I think I succeeded. My friend was very happy with this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal and I hope that the person she gave it to loves it and will use the planner. 🙂

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

I’m loving this Pink Song Bird Junk Journal I just completed. Using the Calico Collage digital kit Song Bird. This time when I used this digital kit I decided to use a lot of pink throughout the journal.

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

This Pink Song Bird Junk Journal measures 6 x 8.5 with 64 pages. Lots of journal cards and tuck spots throughout this junk journal.

Here is a video flip through of the Pink Song Bird Junk Journal and Journal Kits.

For the cover of this Pink Song Bird Junk Journal, I used a pretty floral fabric with butterflies. I loved the pinks in the fabric and that is what made me choose to use pink inside the journal.

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

Using the iridescent glitter tule on the dragonfly junk journal was a hit so I decided to use it again on this Pink Song Bird Junk Journal.

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

The pages have been sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists through stencils that I made using my Cricut. I’m really enjoying making my own stencils. I can match the theme of the junk journal and it is an original design.

Another favorite tool in my studio is my sewing machine. I love adding the zigzag stitches to the pages and elements.

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

The lace elements in this Pink Song Bird Junk Journal were all colored with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Spraying the lace with the colors I love helps me use up the white lace in my stash. It also makes it easy to make more lace matching the colors I’m using.

Sewing strips of the fabric to the journal cards helped tie the elements together. When making the Journal Kits I made sure to add enough of the fabric that can be used on the elements that you might make.

When I’m making junk journals I really love being able to use my rubber stamps. It makes it easy to make pretty journal cards with a great select of stamps.

The journal kits have all the elements used in the Pink Song Bird Junk Journal. The sewn elements – pages and journal cards are done. But you get to choose where to attach the pocket, tuck spots and install the journal cards. You can even add more of your pages and elements.

Rescued by the Best Cleaner Ever

Rescued by the Best Cleaner Ever. Today I’m sharing my clean hands after using the Best Cleaner Ever from ScraPerfect. After a session of playing with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and Glam, my hands looked like I murdered the Kool-Aid man.

Rescued by the Best Cleaner Ever

This is where The Best Cleaner Ever from ScraPerfect came to my rescue. Applying a couple of sprays onto my hands and working the cleaner for a few minutes I was Rescued by the Best Cleaner Ever.

Rescued by the Best Cleaner Ever

Using the Best Cleaner Ever gives me peace of mind, since it is nontoxic. A lot of cleaners will make your hands very dry and feel damaged I don’t feel that way about the Best Cleaner Ever.

Rescued by the Best Cleaner Ever

There are so many things that this cleaner can be used on without causing damage.

Here is a video showing how the cleaner works.

As you can see from the video and photos, my hands were clean. Got a mess to clean up? Get Rescued by the Best Cleaner Ever from ScraPerfect today.

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.

Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial

Welcome my friends, today I’m sharing a Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial. This pocket was in the Let it Snow Junk Journal and I made extras for the Simply Winter Junk Journal kits. I thought I would share How I made it so others could make their own Junk Journal Pocket.

Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial

Here is a video showing the Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial.

Supplies used for the Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial

Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial

The method used in this Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial is very simple. Take a page out of an old book. I’ve even used books from the Dollar Tree. Fold the book in half from top to bottom. Turn down one corner and adhere in place.

Using a Snowflake Stencil (I made the stencil myself using my Circut and a snowflake image and cut on Transparency film.) Spray with both colors of Tattered Angels Mists.

Once the page is dry (can use a heat tool if necessary) take to the sewing machine. Stitch around the outside edges to add a touch of zig-zag stitches.

Next using the Calico Collage Vintage Holiday charm image, a few punched shapes and some sheet music decorate the pocket. I even used some blue eyelash yarn for cool texture.

To put in the pocket I made a tag using Canvas Corp Brands Canvas an index card and more of the Tattered Angels Mists.

After watching the Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial I know you will make a lot of these fun and beautiful pockets.

Tutorial Explore Mini Junk Journal

Today is a Tutorial of an Explore Mini Junk Journal for Day 12 of the Christmas Junk Journal Gift ideas. Doing this series has been fun. I love seeing what Rachel Reid comes up each day.

Explore Mini Junk Journal

For this Tutorial of the Explore Mini Junk Journal, I wanted to keep it simple. Not a lot of fancy tools. As many of the things I did can be done without fancy tools. Scissors, glue, paper, sewing needle, and thread are the basics.

The Supplies and Tools I used today for the Explore Mini Junk Journal.

Explore Mini Junk Journal

Because some people have said they don’t have Glimmer Mists or even Distress Inks I didn’t use any, just opting to have it clean and simple. It also takes less time if you leave out those steps.

Explore Mini Junk Journal

Here is a video of the Tutorial on the Explore Mini Junk Journal.

Pick up a Junk Pack from 7Gypsies today and see what kind of fun junk journal you make. It’s fun to pick up random papers to use in a junk journal. And in this little junk pack are all kinds of cool textures and colors. Enough for making matching elements and few that will make them one of a kind.

Explore Mini Junk Journal

My hope is that you too will make an Explore Mini Junk Journal and enjoy the process.

Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal

Hello friends, today is day 10 of the 12 days of Junk Journal Gift Ideas and I’m sharing a Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal. This is a super easy mini junk journal that can be made as a small stocking stuffer or to add to a Christmas Card.

Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal

Video Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal.

The method for making this one sheet mini junk journal is very easy. Take the 12 x 12 inch sheet of paper and score at the 3, 6, 9 inch marks, rotate 90 degrees and score at the 3, 6, 9 inch marks. Then slightly crease the page so you can see the sore marks.

Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal

Make a cut down the center score mark and stop 3 inches from the edge. Rotate paper 180 degrees and cut the outside two score marks and stop 3 inches from the edge. You will have a zig-zag looking sheet of paper.

Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal

Next, fold the paper in an accordion fashion until the pages have been formed. Using the Best Glue ever adhere the pages together. Keeping in mind those pages you want to have pockets, leave the top open to slide a journal card inside.

Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal

Once the pages have adhered create the cover using scraps of paper cut to 2.75 inches square. Apply distress inks to the book and cover. Wrap one time around the journal with yarn and tie a bow. This will be the closure. Apply the Best Glue Ever to the cover pieces and adhere to cover over the yarn.

Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal

Cut a 1 inch by 3 inch piece of paper to cover the spine of the journal. Adhere using the Best Glue Ever. Once all of the gluing is complete use the Perfect Crafting Pouch to get rid of any sticky areas. Wipe with the Perfect Cleaning Cloth to remove any excess powder.

Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal

Decorate the one sheet mini junk journal to your liking. For mine, I used scraps of book pages, images from Calico Collage Drag and scraps of cardstocks.

Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal

The one-sheet mini junk journal has 18 pages including the covers for you to decorate and depending on how you created the pages could have 7 pockets.
