Tutorial Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

With the end of 2017 it is time to get a new planner for 2018 and I decided to make one. Sharing a Tutorial Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal. This Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal is made using Digital Images from Calico Collage – Dragonfly Delight. A Dollar Tree planner, bullet journal and monthly dividers from a 2017 Happy Planner.

Collecting a few of the following for this Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

Here is a video Tutorial Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

To make this Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal I began with taking apart the bullet journal. This is where a Xacto knife comes in handy. When you locate the start of the signature it is easy to pull the book apart.

Next, take the staple out of the Dollar Tree Planner. Then cut the pages down the spine because this was a one signature book and the pages need to be broken up into a three signature book.

Composition book pages are sewn to the calendar side of the Happy Planner monthly tabs. The top and bottom are sewn down and that makes pockets on each page.

When printing the Calico Collage Dragonfly Delight pages I print lines on the back side. Then use the handmade dragonfly stencil and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on the back side of the pages.

While the stencil and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists are out, apply to the bullet journal pages.

Use Distress Inks to stamp Dragonflies and quotes on the pages. I like how it adds another element to each page.

Acrylic paint was applied to the book pages with an old credit card. When the paint is spread thin with the card it allows the words to be faintly seen in the background. Stamp with Brutus Monroe Embossing ink and sprinkle with Brutus Monroe Gold embossing powder heat set.

These new painted book pages were then folded on one side then sewn with a zigzag stitch. Now, these are new pockets for the Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

Group the pages together. Paying attention to where the monthly tabs and the weekly planner pages fall in the Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

Once all the pages have been arranged it is time to attach the planner pages. Using Washi tape either attach to a journal page or to a corresponding planner page. These new pages will then rest in the journal and can be bound to the cover.

Making the cover is something I really enjoy. It makes me feel happy that this journal is almost complete. When the signatures are applied I will sometimes pet the journal. It makes me so happy.

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.

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. 🙂
