I used a variety of printables from Tsunami Rose’s etsy shop for this journal. Besides the printables being gorgeous they are ALL 50% off until September 1st…meaning everything in the shop is $2.50 including journaling kits!!! 🙂
For the base of my junk journal I started with a file folder. I cut the folder down with the front and back being 5 3/4″x8 5/8″ with a 1 1/2″ and 2″ fold over for tuck spots inside and the spine being 1 1/2″ wide.
I adhered leftover cardstock/scrapbook paper to the covers both inside and out along with printables from Collage Cards Set 2 and Ephemera Set 3. I covered the spine with lace. I used a combination of Zip Dry and 3 in 1 adhesives since everything won’t come apart and the 3 in 1 “grabs” and dries quickly. Both adhesives are made by Beacon Adhesives.
This is a view of the cover before folded.
And the inside before the flaps are folded down and adhered to create pockets.
I coffee dyed regular copy paper…my first time. It’s a lot of work but looks great. 🙂
The journal has three signatures with eight papers per signature.
I used the Ephemera Set 3 for these pages. The pull out is actually a small booklet. I folded the printable in half and added coffee dyed notebook paper along with scraps of cardstock, rub ons and some of the printables I fussy cut and added to the pages too.
I created pockets out of some of the printables and I added some of the Library Cards 2 Set 3 through out the journal. Also I used a little bag from an order I had received and a coin roll as a page tab.
More free printables from the blog. The one with the kitten I fussy cut and adhered the corners to the tag to create a pocket and then added more printables as tags.
I cut the bottoms off of two of the tags from the Vintage Shipping Tag Collection, the tiny row of roses and fussy cut those out and added to both sides of the decorative gift bag. Then I punched holes in the tags and added fiber to the tops of them.
Even though I used a variety of printables from Tsunami Rose’s etsy shop instead of a kit I think the journal has turned out lovely.
