Mini Spring Junk Journal
Simon Says: Monday Challenge
I gathered up an assortment of cardstock, leftover scraps, four of 1.75″ Expander Discs and a pair of scissors and began fussy cutting all of the images out from the printable.
Before I embellished I flattened, added patterned cardstock to each TP roll and used the Book Binding Diecut before adding pockets and tuck spots to the pages.
I cut a Medallion Diecut out and adhered the 25 cent printable to the center.
The paper bow I received in a swap so I added a flower to the center before embellishing the page.
I cut some of the tags with the Bookplate, Hinges and Label Diecuts. and added printables and tabs.
On the backside of the tags I adhered some of the printables to create mini pockets to hold tags.
Hi everyone! I am here to share my Inspiration Team project I created this month for Eileen Hull. The weather has been so cold in my neck of the woods that my project has a warm weather beach theme to it.
I love the Book Binding Movers and Shapers Magnetic Diecut! There is so many possible uses for it! My journal has a total of 35 pages, plus the front and back covers. So this is one packed journal and the best part I can take it with me on my vacation already assembled. No, taking a load of cardstock, embellishments, etc. which nine times out of ten I won’t fool with that much because…well…you know..I’m on vacation. 😎
I added a business card (Chick A Fil is a favorite place to eat at) and sacks/bags to the journal too.
I love the fact that you can move pages around or add or even take out completely.
I also made pages from a pamphlet I had picked up.
I used a hotel note pad for some pages in my journal too.
I threw in some paint chips in a beach theme.
The map I wanted to include was too large so I cut it down and folded and used a paper clip to keep it from flopping around.
Coffee sleeves work well as pockets to hold tags or receipts.
I added a drink coaster from my favorite restaurant to the journal.
I saved this bag from an order I received. I folded it over to create a flap, added some ric rac and a clip to keep ephemera safe.
There you have it! One junk journal ready to go to the beach with me…hopefully this year…all I’ll need is an ink pen, Insta Printer and a small stash of embellishments and I am ready!

Hi everyone! I am back to share the full reveal of my Christmas Time mini album using Eileen Hull’s newest Book Club Diecut Collection!
The inside cover I adhered a two of the corners of the pocket from the Bookmark, Tag and Pocket Collection to create another pocket to hold a label, which I folded, from the Bookplate, Hinges and Label Collection.
I created a belly band which I added a seal diecut to the band and added a label diecut as a tag which can be used as a journaling card or for mini photos. On the opposite page I added the word “moments” from the Floral Arch and Words Collection for a simple embellishment.
The top of the page I added a label and dress it up with a sentiment and sequin. I adhered a wooden joy frame to the bottom corner of the page as a pocket to hold a label diecut and a mini tag.
The opposite page I free handed a tree and inked and glued the star from the Bookplate, Hinges and Label Collection to the top of the tree.
The next two pages are simple I created another belly band which I used an old Christmas present label as a tag and a piece of ric rac and a button dressed up the other page.
I added label diecuts and a Christmas present tag to the bookmark and the inside cover I finished off with patterned cardstock and a Santa from my stash.
