Making Gingerbread Men

Welcome friends. Today I’m Making Gingerbread Men. Working on a Christmas Junk Journal and wanted some handmade elements added. This is where I use stamps I’ve had for years and some bling that I had leftover from another project.

Making Gingerbread Men

When I found the gingerbread man stamp in my stash, I knew I wanted to make these to add to the journal.

Items used for Making Gingerbread Men.
ScraPerfect – Best Glue Ever
Colored Pencils
Stamped image on Kraft paper with Brutus Monroe Detail ink – Raven
Flat back rhinestone
Distress ink – Vintage Photo
Blending tool

Here is a video showing Making Gingerbread Men.

For this project Making Gingerbread Men, I started with stamping the gingerbread men in Brutus Monroe Detail ink – Raven onto Kraft colored cardstock. Then I used my scissors to fussy cut the gingerbread men.

Choosing a few color of pencils I then colored in the areas I wanted on the gingerbread men. Then I used Distress Ink – Vintage Photo around the edges.

Sometimes it is hard to find the right glue to adhere items. The Best Glue Ever is perfect for these rhinestones as it doesn’t take very much and it holds quickly. Other glues the rhinestone would pop off the project. I just applied a small dot on the back of the rhinestone, used the tip of the glue to spread and then attached to the gingerbread men.

My hope is that I have inspired you to look differently at those items you have in your stash and use them in projects.

Vanity Flair Prayer Junk Journals

One of my friends requested that I share some prayer junk journals. So today I’m sharing four Vanity Flair Prayer Junk Journals. These were made using the Calico Collage digital journal kit Vanity Flair and Bible Verse Dominos.

Vanity Flair Prayer Junk Journals

Each journal has 14 sheets of paper folded in half for a total of 56 pages. Lots of space to write throughout the journals.

Here is a flip through video of the Vanity Flair Prayer Junk Journals.

It started out I was going to make one of these Vanity Flair Junk Journals. But my printer decided to act up and when it did it repeated the print job and I ended up with almost three of each page! So I went ahead and printed another set so I could make four journals.

Vanity Flair Prayer Junk Journals

Black Embossing Powder was used with Versamark ink for the title of each book. A Heat Embossing tool to is needed to set the embossing powder.

Sometimes you just go with those errors and make something with what happened. In my case, I made more journals. lol

The covers of the Vanity Flair Prayer Junk Journals are a combination of Watercolor paper and the image from the Calico Collage digital kit. Picked Raspberry Distress ink was used around the edge of the watercolor paper. Then the digital image was glued in place. Used my sewing machine with a zigzag stitch around the edge.Vanity Flair Prayer Junk Journals Vanity Flair Prayer Junk Journals

Adding sewing to paper is something I really enjoy doing. If you have questions about how it will affect your sewing machine check out my blog post How to sew on Junk Journal here.

Did you know that when you purchase a digital item from Calico Collage you are allowed to change the size of the image? I have the Bible Verse Dominos and loved the images, but wanted them bigger. I cropped the .jpg image down to show six images. Then I told my printer to print this new image of six dominos at full size. Doing this created journal cards for this set of Vanity Flair Prayer Junk Journals.

How to Sew on Junk Journal Page

Since I feature sewing a lot on my junk journal pages I thought I would share some tips. How to Sew on Junk Journal Page, shows how I sew on the paper and a few tips.

How to Sew on Junk Journal Page

The video for How to Sew on Junk Journal Page.

Things used for How to Sew on Junk Journal Page.
Sewing machine – mine is really old, 25 years. But any home sewing machine will work. Avoid the handheld sewing machine as those will be more headache than it is worth. Check out Local Sewing Machine Repair shops for used machines, thrift stores – make sure you turn it on before you purchase and then you can always buy a new machine for under $100.
Thread – I have a lot of old thread. Test it before you use in your machine – Pull a length off of the spool and see if it is easy to break with your hands. If you can give it a slight pull and it breaks it is really old and you won’t be happy it is in your machine.
100 ORGAN FLAT SHANK 80/12 Needles
Scissors – I use Fiskar Scissors, these have a nice sharp point to get into tiny spaces.
Paper and Ribbon were used from my stash.
Look for old Street Atlus when out estate sale shopping or thrift store shopping.
Before sewing on the page, I did use Vintage Photo Distress ink and a blending tool, on the pocket portion.

Tips for How to Sew on Junk Journal Page.

  • Start with a new needle when you first start sewing on paper. I will continue to use the needle until it breaks or bends. Usually, it will work for a while before it gets dull.
  • Clean the machine of lint and dust regularly. Read your manual to know how best to clean your machine.
  • Use a longer stitch length when sewing on paper if it is too short you will perforate the paper and it will tear.
  • Have fun.

Don’t be afraid of a sewing machine. It’s a great tool and you just need to spend a little time getting to know your machine and you will have fun!

Natures Glory Junk Journals

Today I’m sharing three Natures Glory Junk Journals I made using the Calico Collage Digital Journal Kit – Natures Glory. These were fun and easy to make. Of course, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists were used along with Stamping and Distressed Inks.

Natures Glory Junk Journals

What I love about the Calico Collage Digital Journal Kits is I get to pick and choose the images I want to use in my junk journals. For this set of Natures Glory Junk Journals, I decided to use the journal cards as a focal piece on the cover.

These Natures Glory Junk Journals measure 5.25 inches wide by 7.5 inches tall. Each journal has 10 sheets of paper folded in half for a total of 40 pages.

Here is a flip through video showing all three of the Natures Glory Junk Journals I made.

Using papers from my stash and things that were given to me brings me joy. How about you? Do you try to use up items from your stash?

Natures Glory Junk Journals Natures Glory Junk Journals Natures Glory Junk Journals Natures Glory Junk Journals Natures Glory Junk Journals

Each cover has a page out of a dictionary, Canvas Corp Brands Canvas, Prima flower and more. My best friend gave me a couple rolls of the red mesh. I decided to make a little flair for the flowers.

My youngest brother loves to go to auctions. Since he loves going, I gave him the task to look for papers, photos, calendars and more. He didn’t disappoint when he brought a box full of goodies to me. There was an Oklahoma City Street Atlas and datebooks in the box that got used in these journals.

Natures Glory Junk Journals Natures Glory Junk Journals Natures Glory Junk Journals Natures Glory Junk Journals Natures Glory Junk Journals

Because I often use hardback books for journal covers I end up with a lot of pages from the books. For this batch of Natures Glory Junk Journals, I decided to try my hand at painting pages for envelopes.

Natures Glory Junk Journals

Using craft acrylic paint in, yellow, orange and purple I painted the paper. This is where an old credit card or gift cards are handy. Use the card to spread the paint in a thin layer. Then these will dry quickly. I even used a stencil for a pretty design.

The Rose stamp in the corners of several of the pages is from Brutus Monroe – Botanical Banners. Stamped the Rose image with Picked Raspberry Distress Inks.

Natures Glory Junk Journals

Lots of yummy goodies in this set of Natures Glory Junk Journals.

Personal Mermaid Junk Journal

Last month I went on a cruise and I made a Personal Mermaid Junk Journal. In this Personal Mermaid Junk Journal, I used images from Calico Collage, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and things from my stash.

Personal Mermaid Junk Journal

To help new junk journal creators I made a video on How to make a Personal Mermaid Junk Journal.

My method is pretty straightforward. Using a basket I collect the items I want to use for the junk journal. In this case, I collected sea themed items, like stickers, scrapbook paper, digital images, stamps and more.

Personal Mermaid Junk Journal

The next decision is to figure out what size I want the journal. Since I was using Calico Collage digital images from two different kits, A Mermaid Tale and Enchanted I deiced to use those to determine the size of my journal.

Personal Mermaid Junk Journal

Once the size has been determined, cut the pages to the desired size. Next, add some color with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. I love to use stencils with the mists for added texture.

Personal Mermaid Junk Journal

Since this was going to be my Personal Mermaid Junk Journal that I would use while on a cruise I decided that I didn’t want bulky embellishments to get in the way of writing. This journal stayed very simple.

The cover was cardstock that I used a stencil and then sewed the Calico Collage image from A Mermaid Tale on top. While looking around in my stash I found a pretty Prima Pearl embellishment that I knew would be perfect for the cover.

Personal Mermaid Junk Journal

The mermaid charm that was attached to this Personal Mermaid Junk Journal I found at Hobby Lobby on clearance. (I didn’t remember for sure in the video, but went shopping again and found more at Hobby Lobby). Isn’t she cute on the journal?

Halloween Witches Junk Journals

It’s Fall and time for Halloween and today I’m sharing four Halloween Witches Junk Journals I made using Calico Collage digital images, Canvas Corp Brands Halloween cardstock, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and more.

Halloween Witches Junk Journals

Last week I visited Canvas Corp Brands Home office and was able to pick up a few new things. I also got a few RAK’s (Random Act of Kindness) packages in the mail filled with Halloween items. This prompted me to take a look at my stash and see that I had some Calico Collage digital images ready to use.

The result was four Halloween Witches Junk Journals. Each journal has 8 sheets of paper folded in half for a total of 32 pages to add memories. The journals are almost 5 inches by 7 inches in size. Lots of Stamping and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists were used in each journal.

Here is a flip through video for the four Halloween Witches Junk Journals.

Papers and digital kits used to make the Halloween Witches Junk Journals.
From Canvas Corp Brands. Haunt It on Kraft Paper, Haunt It: Black & Kraft “The Raven” Paper, Haunt It: Cats, Hats & Bats on Kraft Paper and Haunt It Tags on Kraft Paper
Witches Digital Images from Calico Collage
Vintage Halloween Coffin Tags from Calico Collage
All Hallows Eve digital journal kit

Halloween Witches Junk Journals Halloween Witches Junk Journals Halloween Witches Junk Journals

Being able to use the papers and images along with the items that were sent to me was wonderful. Using my sewing machine to add a few stitches here and there brings me joy. This was also a great time to bust out my Halloween Stamps, some I’ve had for years.

Halloween Witches Junk Journals Halloween Witches Junk Journals Halloween Witches Junk Journals

Although each journal has the same basic papers and I used some of the same techniques each is unique. Stamping, Spraying Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, adding stickers and more help to make each one unique.

What is a Signature & Tutorial for Pamphlet Stitch

The almost daily I’m asked What is a Signature & Tutorial for Pamphlet Stitch. This blog post is answering this question and I hope will help those that want a better understanding of What is a signature.

What is a Signature & Tutorial for Pamphlet Stitch

A signature in bookbinding is a group of stacked papers folded in half that is bound to a cover in a book or journal. The number of papers used is all up to the creator. Some use only a few papers – five. Other people will use at least ten sheets of paper. For bookbinding or journal making it is all personal preference.

What is a Signature & Tutorial for Pamphlet Stitch What is a Signature & Tutorial for Pamphlet Stitch

Supplies list for What is a Signature? & Tutorial for pamphlet stitch
Scraps of paper for pages
Index card – decorated with stencil and distress ink with a painted scrap of paper sewn on top
Awl
Book Binders Needle
Waxed Linen Thread
Large or Giant paper clip
Fiskar Scissors
Paper Template – Measure the height of journal. Place a mark in the center and then two more on the ends at least 1/2 inch from the edge.

Now that I have defined what is a signature here is a video that shares this information and a tutorial for a pamphlet stitch. The pamphlet stitch is one of the easier ways to bind pages to a cover and I use it almost exclusively.

Mixed Media ATC’s or Journal Cards

As part of the Paper Crafters United (PCU) Facebook YouTube hope I’m sharing how to make Mixed Media ATC’s or Journal Cards. Using a bright piece of pink paper, craft paint, rubber stamps and embossing powder I share how to alter paper for fun Mixed Media ATC’s or Journal Cards.

Mixed Media ATC's or Journal Cards

Mixed Media ATC’s or Journal Cards Supply List

Paper to paint – in my case it was a bright pink cardstock
Scraps of paper for punching or die cutting
Craft or Acrylic paint – don’t need fancy paint to make beautiful cards
Old Keycard or gift card – this is a fancy paint spreader
Various Rubber Stamps
Brutus Monroe Detail ink – Raven
Versamark ink pad
Embossing powder – I used a turquoise
Heat Embossing tool
Paper Cutter
Prima Stencil – Flourish
ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever
Distress ink – Black Soot
Blending Tool
EK Label Punch or any shape that you want to use
Ranger Dyan Reaveley’s Dylusions Clear Stamps, 4-Inch by 8-Inch, Clearly The Right Words
MISTI

Here is a video showing how to make Mixed Media ATC’s Or Journal cards.

The method is very simple. Select a sheet of paper from your stash that you want to alter. Choose a few colors of paint and get your tools ready. It is a wise idea to protect your work surface, I use scrap paper, newspaper or even a Nonstick Craft Mat.

Mixed Media ATC's or Journal Cards

Squirt out a little of each color onto a pallet. Use the plastic card to spread the paint all over the sheet of paper. It is all random, don’t think about the placement of the paint, just cover the sheet of paper. For best results let the paper dry or use a heat embossing gun to dry the paint.

Select a stencil and lay over painted paper. Apply paint through the stencil with the same plastic card. Dry this layer before moving to the next step.

Stamp various images in Brutus Monore Detail ink – Raven on the painted paper. Stamp in all directions, again don’t think about placement, just fill some of the empty space.

Use the Versamark embossing pad with stamps on the paper. Apply the embossing powder, tap off the excess and heat emboss until all of the powder has turned shiny.

Once all the stamping has been completed trim the paper down to small cards that are 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches in size.

Select scraps of paper and use the EK Sucess label punch or dies to cut shapes. Place these shapes in the MISTI and stamp with the chosen saying or quote with Brutus Monroe Detail ink – Raven.

Apply Black Soot Distress ink around the edges of the cards and the labels with a distressing tool.

Adhere the sayings with ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever.

Enjoy the cards you made! If the back side of the papers is not clean enough for writing then I like to attach a blank piece of paper cut to the same size as the card.

Mixed Media ATC's or Journal Cards

Once you get started making these you will end up with a large stash as it is addictive!

The following three sets are for sale in my shop.

How to attach chain closure and flip through of Lace Song Bird Junk Journal

Members of the FJJP asked for a new tutorial. How to attach chain closure and flip through of Lace Song Bird Junk Journal is the focus of this post today. The Lace Song Bird Junk Journal was made using the Calico Collage kit Song Bird.

Song Bird Junk Journal

The Lace Song Bird Junk Journal measures 8.5 inches tall by 6 inches wide with a two-inch spine. There are 3 signatures of 10 sheets of paper folded to make 120 pages. Fabric and lace were used for the cover and the closure is a beautiful chain filled with charms to hold the journal closed.

Song Bird Junk Journal

Chain Closure supplies used in the Lace Song Bird Junk Journal
10 mm chain that is about 5 inches long
Large Jump rings
Two half-inch lobster claws
Various charms
Beaded components
Small 6mm Jump Rings
Needle nose pliers
Crop-a-dile hole punch and eyelet setter
Eyelets

Song Bird Junk Journal

To add the chain closure first begin by punching holes in the front and back covers. I used a template to help with the placement of the holes. Then insert the eyelets into the holes.

Use one the large jump rings and one lobster claw on the back cover. Attach the other large jump ring through the front cover.

Select charms and bead components and attach with jump rings to the length of chain. For this closure I wanted to have extra chain for the charms and if the journal got fuller with new additions.

Once the charms are added to the chain add the remaining lobster claw to the end of the chain. Attach the closure to the journal.

Here is a video showing How to attach chain closure and flip through of Lace Song Bird Junk Journal.

The Song Bird Junk Journal came about because of my mother’s love for birds. I chatted with Norella the owner and creator of Calico Collage and she agreed that a bird journal kit was a good idea. Then my mother died and this caused Norella to work quicker on getting the journal kit made. The Song Bird Junk Journal kit is beautiful! She did an outstanding job, and I’m so happy she made this journal.

Song Bird Junk Journal Song Bird Junk Journal

When I got the kit I then started looking through my stash to see what I wanted to use with the beautiful images. It was lucky to find a stash of peach lace. I had forgotten that I had it, left over from making bridesmaids dresses years ago.

The lace was sewn onto the pages after I used some Vintage Photo Distressed Inks on the pages and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Several stamps from my stash made an appearance on the pages too.

Song Bird Junk Journal

My friends of the Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook group have blessed me with wonderful packages and I was able to use several items inside this journal.

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

Making the Song Bird Junk Journal was a great therapy session for me. It was good to remember my mom and her love of birds. Norella even made a couple of images from a photo of my mom when she was eighteen and these are used in the journal.
