Fairy Forest Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

It’s a new style a Fairy Forest Travelers Notebook Junk Journal that I made today. This is a notebook that can be put inside a Travelers Notebook cover or it can be used just as it is, your choice. I have tested the size and it fits inside the Jane Davenport travelers notebook cover.

This journal has a mix of papers and techniques that I decided to try out.  There are so many yummy papers in this journal, I can’t pick out my favorite but I do love the sequin paper a lot and the coloring book page was a good one too.

I did use a lot of of stamps in this journal too. My thought was the quotes would be great things to inspire while writing in this Fairy Forest Travelers Notebook Junk Journal.

What was also a lot of fun was using things that are not normally book pages – Like the wallpaper sample. Years ago when I was a member of a local Stamp Club we made lots of envelopes out of wallpaper samples. Several of us went to wallpaper stores and asked for their old wallpaper sample books. Many of these stores gave these to us for free. So I have a ton of wallpaper in my stash and it feels good to use some of this.

If you have followed me at all then you know how much I love Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Almost every page has some sprayed on the paper. The shimmer on the pages makes me happy.

Making this Fairy Forest Travelers Notebook Junk Journal is a great way for me to try new things and play with things in my stash. I hope you are inspired by my post today and get things out that you may not have played with in a while and create something. Have fun doing so.

How to make a Summer Paradise Pocket Letter

Having joined a pocket letter group I have the opportunity to swap. So I thought I would share How to make a Summer Paradise Pocket Letter. Using Calico Collage Summer Paradise digital journal kit.

Summer Paradise Pocket Letter

Since the journal kit is designed to print as two pages for a 5 x 7 journal I decided to try and print the images as four 3.5 in. x 5 in. prints on a page. When I did this the individual pages were now small enough to fit on the front of an ATC (Artist Trading Card). These are then the perfect size for a pocket letter.

For the actual cards that went into the pocket letter, I cut several at 3.5 in. x 5 in. These pages I then folded in half and these became small booklets or cards.

Each of the images was cut to fit the papers and then I went around the edges with Tim Holtz Distressed Inks, Picked Raspberry.

Although the papers are beautiful by themselves I decided to add a few embellishments. I stamped a few sayings using Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven from the Stampendous Life Words Stamp Set. These were then punched with a circle punch and layered onto the cards.

Also added to the cards a few Prima Flowers in various colors. These were then topped with glitter glue so that they would sparkle.

Once I had the pages decorated I started adding goodies. I used charms from my stash to add a little goodie that could be removed. And if these are removed there is still a bow that can be left in its place or if it was completely removed the card still looked great.

Here is a video of making a Summer Paradise Pocket Letter.

It was fun digging through my stash of sequins and other goodies to add to the pockets. I didn’t realize how fun it would be to make a Summer Paradise Pocket Letter.

I’ve already selected images for other pocket letters I want to make as I found this to be super fun! And the Calico Collage Journal kits are perfect to have enough images to fill the 9 pockets with two images each.

Stamping, spraying, and coloring is so much fun. sometimes I forget how much fun it is until I sit down to make a card like this one.

The layers of color on this card gives it depth. To me, it looks like a spent a very long time creating this card but really it wasn’t long. Do you ever look at a project you made days later and think, hey who made that? Then realize that YOU made it, that you were the creator of something wonderful?

Do you ever look at a project you made days later and think, hey who made that? Then realize that YOU made it, that you were the creator of something wonderful? Sometimes when I look through old photos or visit a website where I submitted my work I’ll stop and say hey I like that one. And then after a moment, I’ll realize that it was my own work! lol

Creating a greeting card to give to someone is so much more than giving them a lift for the day. It can also brighten your spirits while you create and then when giving the card or art to another person.
