Now Playing - 'How I Use My Junk Journals'

Hello lovelies!

Junk journals have been very popular for a few years now but many crafters are still baffled about how to create them or even more so, how to use them. I think that perhaps the concept of using 'found' paper items in combination with printables and other designer paper, etc. is difficult to grasp.

Being a tree hugger, I fell in love with junk journal making the moment I discovered it. Recycling old paper/junk and using my current supplies is a marriage made in paper craft heaven!

I've been filling this blog for some time with my junk journal creations and giving you short blurbs of what I use them for. But this past weekend, I decided to put together a short video of a few books that I've used in my daily life. I'm hoping this will shed light on the junk journal obsession and how I live with this affliction every day :D




Have a crafty week!

New Printable Collection - 'Ephemeral Garden'

Hi everyone, I have a new printable journal ensemble that I wanted to show you. I've been sitting on this one since before the Holidays and have finally had it come together this week! I created three small coordinating sets in this collection and I think some of you will really like it. The colour palette consists of soft pink, teal and chocolate brown.

These printables are designed to create a 5x7" journal with a few 'junk journal' embellishments like a floral mini page insert and large hang tags that you can bind sideways like pages. The cards can be used as tuck spots and pockets. There is no specific theme to it other than it features a variety of lovely ephemera from days long gone by. I included a graph page printable as well, for those who like to have a pattern on the back of the pages, cards and tags instead of plain white. There are lots of fun ways to mix this one up!







Want to see some images more up close? Here's a short slideshow:




'Ephemeral Garden' is available now at ephemerasvintagegarden.com and in my Etsy shop. If you head to my Etsy shop now to grab it, feel free to use the code THANKYOU10 for an extra 10% off your order!

See you back here soon xo.

New Journal Packs!

Hi lovelies, I've been busy adding more items to my Etsy shop. Here are the latest junk journal starter packs. Each pack includes a beautiful file folder by Cavallini and Co. to coordinate with the papers and bits included. It's been cut and folded to make a 6x9" journal cover (or you can trim it smaller). You can see the file folders below and some of the goodies I've bundled together.


Butterflies




Botanical





Vintage Catalog





World Map/Travel





Alphabet/Masculine





Storybook Owls






The photos don't show the entire 60+ item packs so you can hop over to my shop for more details. If you have any questions, let me know. I'm available to answer your questions through Etsy, email, and Facebook.

Have a great week!

Free Printable - Vintage Rose Page Tabs

Happy freebie day! I made some page tabs for you today. They coordinate with one of my favourite collections from last year 'Mabel's Diary'.  They would look really good on the side of journal/planner pages or even as an embellishment on tags and cards! You can also stamp or write you own words on the blank label (and I think they would look great on Valentine's Day projects, with the rich red and roses!).

For Personal Use

I hope you're having a creative week so far. Thanks for stopping by!

Free Printable - Shabby Chic Bottle Labels

Happy freebie day! I have a set of dainty floral labels for you today. These would look so pretty on white painted bottles and jars, don't you think? In a powder room or boudoir? Of course they'd also make great tags or cards in a journal too.

For Personal Use

I hope you find a project to use them in. Have a happy day, and make sure to find time for creativity!

Doctor Who Journal - Video #2 (My Favourite Regenerations)

Hi gang! It's time to get our geek on! I've started journaling in my Doctor Who book and wanted to share it with you. Here are some photos of the first pages. The topic I chose to start with is the Doctor's ability to regenerate. It's a core concept of the series, a contributing factor to the show's longevity (50 years and counting) and one of my very favourite things about it!














You can also watch my video for details about my favourite regeneration scenes.




So far, so good. I'm having lots of fun and enjoying the idea of going back into past episodes and narrowing down why I love Doctor Who so much. What will I journal about next? WHO knows!!! (Hee hee, see what I did there? :P) 

Thanks for checking in!
