One Last Junk Journal Before The Christmas Break

Hello friends, I wanted to share another junk journal creation I finished recently with yet another vintage book. I just love my old books! They're like art to me. Repurposing them for junk journals is a great way to keep them around and enjoy them. This time, the book I used is a copy of 'A Tale of Two Cities' by Charles Dickens. It measures about 4.25x7 inches. I used binder rings to assemble it. It's filled with patterned paper, ephemera, printables and more.













The next one I assemble will be my Doctor Who journal. I just can't wait to get started and share it with you. See you then!

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

I am so incredibly grateful to all the British lovelies who sent goodies across the ocean for my upcoming Doctor Who journal project!!! I just wanted to say a big thank you. I'm so excited to start this one - and I've got more than enough to get it done!

Here's some of what I got. Among other things, there are DW ticket stubs, a magazine, comic book and even a laser cut mini TARDIS! And there are some amazing pamphlets, books, patterned paper, ribbon and so much more. This journal is going to look fantastically British :)






I'll be planning my book over the holiday season and will be ready to jump in as soon as the new year arrives. For those of you looking for journal inspiration or you simply like Doctor Who, I'll be sharing videos and photos of my progress, so I hope you'll join me!

Thanks again for your generosity, I'm really touched.

See you soon :)

Junk Journal - Vintage French Book

I just wanted to share another journal I made with a recent find at the library sale. It's a small (5x7) French language book that was too pretty to pass up. The spine was falling off but the colour and pages were absolutely perfect. So I gutted it and used the cover with binder rings to make this little book full of goodies.











The base pages are patterned paper that I folded to make them double sided. I then randomly stitched book pages onto them, and embellished with printables, die cuts, flash cards, doilies, hang tags, etc. This junk journal was a great way to use up my stash. So easy and so much fun!

Have a creative day!

Free Printable - 'Loving Sweetness' Hang Tags

Hi lovelies, it's Thursday already! I've had a busy week - I originally thought that the Christmas 'Merry Melody' kit was going to be the last release for 2014, but I rearranged my plans and got to work on a collection I've been wanting to design for some time. I call this small set 'Loving Sweetness'. It includes a printable journal kit for making a 4x6 mini and a set of art journal bits. So I thought it would be fitting to make this week's freebie to match.


For Personal Use Only

Here's the journal kit. It includes journal pages, cards, pockets and ephemera as well as bonus blank pages. I used soft teal and pink to accent the coffee stained/distressed background. The sewing theme is subtle and goes well with the lovely Parisien fashion.








And this is the art journal bits set. I've included botanicals, birds, pretty girls and romantic sentiments, among other things.




The collection is available in my Etsy shop or on my website ephemerasvintagegarden.com

That's all the updates I've got for you this week, but I'll be back next Thursday with another freebie. Have a wonderful weekend!
