During the Live Creating Embellishments for Junk Journals on Nov 30th I created several different types of Embellishments. Using Book pages, Painted papers, Stencils, Stamps and Images from Calico Collage I created Journal cards, Envelopes, Tuck spots, Altered Paper Clip and a pocket.

Supplies Used for the Live Creating Embellishments for Junk Journals.
An oatmeal box is the foundation for a couple of long journal cards. Painted book page that was then sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists becomes the covering on this journal card.

Adding stamping and then stenciled design on top gives this card a lot of texture.

Layered of the card – Images from the Artful Journal kit, Book pages, mulberry paper scraps and fabric.

Lots of layers on this long journal card measuring 3 x 8 inches. Scraps of paper and fabric help this card make a statement. Printable words from Calico Collage are a nice touch to any project, remember you can print images in different sizes for your projects.



Small envelopes are easy to make. Start with a square of paper, the ones I made started with a 4 inch square and the inside with of the envelope will fit a 2.5 inch journal card. Add a touch of fabric sewn to a scrap of paper for  a pretty touch.

The Butterfly Beauties Cube was used for the butterflies. Stamp on paper and color with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Once the image is dry fussy cut apply distress inks around the edges and then apply Tulip Dimensional Glitter Paint on top. I like to store my fussy cut elements by them in little clear bags.

A scrap of fabric goes a long way on this little cute tuck spot with journal card.

Scraps are perfect to create a unique altered paperclip flag for a junk journal.  I was able to use scraps and create a two sided altered paperclip.


This pocket was made from a book page, gel print, scrap of fabric, faux postage by Calico Collage and the Beach Rose Small Stamp. Adding Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists around the edge of the book page helped tie together the purple in the fabric and in the journal card that will be placed in the pocket.
