Magnificent Junk Journal Page

Welcome to my blog. Today I’m sharing how to make a Magnificent Junk Journal Page. Using stamps from Brutus Monroe, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and various scraps of paper I share how to make a Magnificent Junk Journal page.

What are your favorite themes to use in a Junk Journal? Mine varies depending on my mood. Some are chosen because of the digital kit or a favorite stamp set that I want to use.

The inspiration for making this Magnificent Junk Journal Page was from Liz Costin. Recently I was the swap coordinator for a page swap for Friendly Junk Journal People and I had the pleasure of looking at all of the pages before swapping. I loved what Liz did with her pages so I asked if I could make a tutorial with her pages. She agreed so here I am sharing. 😉

Here is a video showing how to make a Magnificent junk journal page.

Since we are doing page swaps in our group I decided to follow the size requirement that we set in the group for the pages. My page is 8 inches tall by 10.5 inches wide.

When I’m working in a journal it needs to have places to write. Isn’t that what most journals are about? Even though I may not like my handwriting I want to have plenty of room to record memories or notes. That is why this Magnificent Junk Journal Page has pockets to hold journal paper.

Every time I make a junk journal page I feel good about using the things I have in my stash. You can make trash into treasure with a little work.

Rejoice Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

Day 13 of #junkjournaljuly and I made a Rejoice Travelers Notebook Junk Journal. This could also be a prayer journal.  This one I decided to use red throughout. I pulled all kinds of scraps from my stash to make the elements in the journal.

Rejoice Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

The Journal Measures 8.25 tall by 4.25 wide and has 15 sheets of paper to make 60 pages. It has four mini journals that have three sheets of paper or 12 pages.

Rejoice Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

Some of the things that I used in this journal range from scrapbook paper, map, coloring book page, old bible pages, graph paper, notebook paper, mop up sheets of paper and more. I also got to use a lot of my tools, like a cool ticket punch by Little B.

I also got to use a lot of my tools, like a cool ticket punch by Little B. Using my sewing machine lets me add texture and interest to the journal too. Once washi tape wasn’t something that I used. I was annoyed that it didn’t always stick where I wanted it to stick. The newer styles stick a lot better.

My stash of ribbon is finally getting more use as I’ve found that I like sewing it onto elements. I think it adds just a touch more to the project and now I can’t stop using ribbon in my junk journals.

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists is one of my favorite products to use and I love how it looks in this Rejoice Travelers Notebook Junk Journal.

Another feature of this journal is the four mini journals I made using scraps of paper. I fold these in half and sewed with my sewing machine. I love how cute these turned out to be.

Here is a video flip through of the Rejoice Travelers Notebook Junk Journal.

As I said, in the beginning, this is day 13 of my personal challenge to make a junk journal every day in July. I’m still on track and have made a journal or even two every day so far.  My hope is that I have inspired you to create. It doesn’t matter what, but create something every day.

How to do Pamphlet Stitch inside Travelers Notebook Insert

Sharing How to do Pamphlet Stitch inside Travelers Notebook Insert. Using Calico Collage images for the focal point on my covers on top of various colors of cardstock I share how to sew the pages together using a Pamphlet Stitch and make Travelers Notebook inserts.

How to do Pamphlet Stitch inside Travelers Notebook Insert

My inserts measure 8.25 in. tall by 4.25 in. wide. I use 12 sheets of paper folded in half for a total of 48 pages inside the insert. Some of the papers used, scrapbook papers, notebook paper, grid paper, mop up sheets when I spray Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and more.

Once the size of a journal has been determined I make a template for my hole placement. I like the holes to be evenly spaced. The template will have three holes. One in the center and the other two will be about 1.25 inches from the ends.

Here is a video on How to do Pamphlet Stitch inside Travelers Notebook Insert.

Creating these journals is a great way to use up those papers in your stash that you don’t madly love. Sometimes I look at the papers in a scrapbook pad and if some are not really to my liking to make a greeting card I’ll use it in a journal. These are still pretty papers, but may be limited to larger layouts.

How to do Pamphlet Stitch inside Travelers Notebook Insert

Calico Collage images from the Spring Peacock, Natures Glory and Unicorn Magic journal kits were used on the covers. These print two images per a page. Designed to be folded in half and used as a journal page. I had a few left over from making journals and I thought these would make great cover images. I just cut the page in half and trimmed down the image to be 4 inches wide. Then I added either washi tape or ribbon to the top and bottom of the image. Lastly, I added sewing stitches all around the image.

Here is a couple of photos of my Book Binding Cradle. My husband made the cradle based off of my needs and scraps of lumber that we had laying around. I chose to have one made out of wood because the cardboard ones for sale seemed flimsy to me. This is very sturdy. In fact, it is almost the height of a short stool when turned on the end and my husband was using it as a chair while I was crafting. lol

I made a bunch of these Travelers Notebooks because I’ll be in a show in August. No need to wait until the last moment to get things ready.

Black and White Junk Journal Embellishment Kit

I’m going through my stash and decided I would make a Black and White Junk Journal Embellishment Kit. The paper has flocking in the black areas and it feels so wonderful to touch.

Black and White Junk Journal Embellishment Kit

One of the things that takes a while to put together in a Junk Journal is the elements or embellishments. I like to have a stack of items ready to go so that I’m not spending a lot of time trying to make things when I want to finish a journal.

Digging around in my stash I found the paper that I got in a junk pack from Canvas Corp Brands and knew these would make beautiful elegant embellishments for a junk journal.

I’m so glad that I moved one of my sewing machines into my paper art studio. I have it on my right side ready to be used anytime. Before I would have to go into another room or move a ton of things in order to use the sewing machine.

Black and White Junk Journal Embellishment Kit

Since the sewing machine is handy it makes it easy to sew papers together and I did so for this Black and White Junk Journal Embellishment Kit.

I also found some beautiful beaded eyelash trim in my stash. I thought it would be pretty on a tall journaling card, and I’m right. It is beautiful and adds to that tactile feeling.

Black and White Junk Journal Embellishment Kit

There are nineteen elements in the kit. Die cut shapes which include a large butterfly and doily. Tiny punched butterflies are perfect to add to the strings in a journal or to enhance a page or make another embellishment.

Black and White Junk Journal Embellishment Kit

Library style pocket with a journal spot is also included. I added lined notebook paper to the tag and I think it looks so elegant.

Here is a video showing the Black and White Junk Journal Embellishment Kit.

I have made up three of these kits for sale in my shop. The price includes shipping.

Want more items in the kit than the 19 included? Please feel free to contact me through my Facebook Page.

My hope is that I have inspired you to look at those papers in your stash and make your own kit to add to your journals. Or feel free to buy the ones I made up.

Unicorn Magic Junk Journal

I’m so in love with this Unicorn Magic Junk Journal. Hopefully you love it too. I used the Calico Collage Digital journal kit Unicorn Magic to make this journal along with stamps, scrapbook papers and the mop up pages when I use Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

Unicorn Magic Junk Journal

There is so much beautiful color throughout the journal. If you are a pink and purple fan, then this is a perfect color combo for you. Because doesn’t everyone love Unicorns?! Ever since I was a young girl I have loved Unicorns.

Unicorn Magic Junk Journal

When Norella the owner and creator of Calico Collage said she was making a Unicorn Kit I was super excited! I think I responding in all caps that I loved the designs.. Working with these images has given me such joy!

The journal measures 5.5 in x 7.5 in. with a 1.5 in. spine. It has three signatures of 10 sheets of paper which make 120 pages to journal or add items. There are 9 different altered paper clips throughout. I made eight pockets out of pages from old books and decorated these pockets with various colors of washi tape. Pink lace seam binding ties the journal closed.

Here is a video flip through of the Unicorn Magic Junk Journal.

When I spray items with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists I line a box with a sheet of paper. This sheet of paper is an old letterhead that belonged to my husband. The company logo changed and they told him to throw out the paper and they sent new paper to him. Well, I knew that was a waste of paper so I kept it and I used it as a mop up sheet.

Unicorn Magic Junk Journal Unicorn Magic Junk Journal Unicorn Magic Junk Journal Unicorn Magic Junk Journal Unicorn Magic Junk Journal Unicorn Magic Junk Journal Unicorn Magic Junk Journal Unicorn Magic Junk Journal

The results of using this old letterhead to soak up the glimmer mists make a beautiful paper that is perfect for pages in a junk journal. I trimmed off the letterhead log as best I could. When some of the images remain I find clever ways to cover it up. In the Unicorn Magic Junk Journal, I created tuck spots. Some fo these tuck spots are long strips of paper. Some tuck spots are just enough to cover the corner.

On many of the pages, I used stamps to add more interest. I love looking at different images and colors in a journal. Adding stamps throughout helps to not leave any blank pages.

Unicorn Magic Junk Journal

Journal making is a lot of fun. I’m really enjoying these digital kits from Calico Collage. The images that she uses in the kits are beautiful. Make sure to check out her shop to see all of the beautiful kits she offers.

How to make an Embellished Home Decor Butterfly With Paper

How to make an Embellished Home Decor Butterfly With Paper. Using the Rinea Foil and a few paper punches I’ll alter a metal butterfly and give it a whole new look.

The butterfly was on clearance at Hobby Lobby a while back and I thought this would be a perfect project to add Riena Foil and give it a whole new look.

Scor-Pal SP202 Scor-Tape, 0.25 by 27-Yard
Scissors
Pencil
Cardstock to adhere the paper
Aleene’s Tacky Glue

Video showing How to make an Embellished Home Decor Butterfly With Paper.

This is a very easy project that can be done in about an hour or less. You could even get elaborate and cut all kinds of shapes for the wings.

I decided to keep this pretty simple and only used three colors. Mainly because these were the three that went together that I had in my stash. lol Sometimes you just make do with what you have and it usually turns out really cool!

This would make a great housewarming gift. Just find out what the color scheme is for their home and make the butterfly to match. Or while you are out shopping look at other metal shapes and see if they could be turned into a project like this.

To me, this butterfly reminds me of a stained glass piece. The bright colors are so beautiful and cheery. Have fun finding an object and then selecting the colors. Make sure you order a couple of the multi packs so that you have at least two sheets of each color to play with for your project.

How to make a quick Keychain

Need a quick gift? Today I’ll show you How to make a quick Keychain Using Calico Collage Spring Peacock digital images, Tim Holtz distressed inks, Brutus Monroe detail in and Rinea Foil in Sapphire.

How to make a quick Keychain

When out shopping I saw a package of plastic Button Keychains by Playside Creations. These are 2.75 in. in diameter and I knew these would be beautiful keychains to add images inside.

Using my Silhouette Cameo 3, I pulled the 1 in. Digital images from the Spring Peacock set into the software and adjusted the size until it was the correct size for the keychains. I set the images to cut and saved the file.

Sent the images to my printer with the registration marks so that my Silhouette would recognize the sheet for cutting. Then placed the sheet on the Silhouette mat. Loaded the mat into the Silhouette Cameo 3 and told the software to send to Silhouette.

I just love watching my Silhouette in action! It cut the circles the perfect size for my project.

Once the images were cut I then took apart the plastic keychain case. Using Zig Two-Way Glue I glued two circles back to back.

Since the edges don’t always line up perfectly I then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Tumbled Glass to go around the edges. This will cover up the white areas.

As another measure to make the images look finished I then went around the outside with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven.

Selecting a sheet of Rinea Foil in Sapphire I then used the Tim Holtz Bow Paper Punch to punch a bow.

Time to put the keychain together. Make sure that the images are right side up and place inside the well of the keychain. Add the bow or other die cut shape then snap the cover back in place. Bam you are done. It took less than 5 minutes to make one of these keychains.

How to make a Hello Spellbinders Pinwheels Greeting Card

While shopping at Tuesday Morning a few weeks back  I picked up the Spellbinders Pinwheels dies. Thinking these would be beautiful made with the Rinea Foil.

So I pulled out all of my supplies and set to making this card.

Below you will find a video on How to make a Hello Spellbinders Pinwheels Greeting Card.

Making the pinwheels is really easier than it looks. Once I figured out how many pieces to cut and how to put these together.

For the two pinwheels, I made there are five cuts of each of the two dies. The pinwheel looks best when two sided paper is used. The Rinea Foil was perfect since there are several papers that have different colors on each side.

How to make a Hello Spellbinders Pinwheels Greeting Card

Be aware that this card will get smashed if you put it in an envelope and mail it to someone. I would suggest either hand delivering the card or putting it in a small box so that it arrives in its full beautiful glory.

Make sure you head over to the Rinea website and see all the beautiful colors of paper foils that they offer. This isn’t your typical foil paper, it is better.

I hope that today’s post inspires you to make a pinwheel with the Rinea foil. Feel like a kid again and make one for yourself.

How to make Shaker Box Charm Pendants

How to make Shaker Box Charm Pendants using Calico Collage Fanciful 1 inch digital images, Shaker box pendants and tiny glass diamonds. Super cute and easy to make!

When I found the Blank Slate pendants I knew these would be wonderful shaker box charm pendants. I purchased all they had at the store as these were on clearance and I didn’t want to miss out on having these in my stash.

Later I got a message from the owner of Calico Collage and she asked if I would do a tutorial on jewelry using her images. Things then clicked together and these are the pendants I made.

How to make Shaker Box Charm Pendants

Supplies used for How to make Shaker Box Charm Pendants:
Calico Collage Fanciful 1 inch digital images
Judikins Diamond Glaze – on Amazon
Hammered Bezel with Clear Acrylic Insert 33mm Hobby Lobby
Blank Slate 3 mm Crystal Faceted Glass Stones – Hobby Lobby
Mini Silver Filigree Butterfly Charms – Hobby Lobby
Metallic Glass Microbead in gold – on Amazon
Loctite super glue – on Amazon
3/4 inch square punch – on Amazon

The little Shaker Box Charm Pendants are so easy to make!

Here is a video to show you How to make Shaker Box Charm Pendants:

Download the Calico Collage Fanciful 1 inch digital images and print. I sent mine to Staples to have them printed on a laser printer. These were printed on standard white paper and look beautiful.

Trim the sheet into rows of images so that it is easy to use the 3/4 inch square punch – on Amazon on the images you want in the pendants.

Inside the Hammered Bezel with Clear Acrylic Insert 33mm Hobby Lobby place a drop of Judikins Diamond Glaze – on Amazon then add the image on top. Push down so that the glue spreads out to the edges of the image.

Select items to put inside I used:
Blank Slate 3 mm Crystal Faceted Glass Stones – Hobby Lobby
Mini Silver Filigree Butterfly Charms – Hobby Lobby
Metallic Glass Microbead in gold – on Amazon

Once all the bits and bobs have been added inside place a drop of the Loctite super glue – on Amazon in each corner of the bezel. It doesn’t take much of this glue. I like that is a gel and doesn’t come out fast. I’ve also found that unlike other super glues this one doesn’t dry up in the bottle before you get to use all of the glue.

Place the acrylic insert on top. Since the loop at the top is from front to back you will want to add a jump ring or use small gauge cord and tie a knot for the necklace.

I hope you enjoyed seeing How to make Shaker Box Charm Pendants. Make a few and share with friends and family. They will love these. 🙂
