paper arts: mini junk journal 1

 

A gift for my daughter who loves to journal and travel. Cover is a kraft mailing packet and most pages are random papers picked up from thrift shops.


tied with a silk sari ribbon, which is recycled from Indian saris








some Tim Holtz paper - not a fan of using "designer" papers but it fits the travel theme




repurposed billing envelope using the flap as the pocket




real stamp reused | rubber bands inked and stamped in corners | family photo from 1940's








tags from 7 gypsies that I've had forever








paper arts: scrap paper self challenge

 

Challenged myself to only use paper scraps as well as random stickers and other odds-n-ends for this folded mini album with eight pockets. The only whole piece of paper used is for the base of the album as it needs to be a complete 12x12 sheet of sturdy scrapbook paper. (No waste there!) No other materials are used.


front cover has part of a bookmark and cut ribbon that didn't work for a previous project



front of fold out with four lower pockets and tabs peeking out of the top pockets



back of the fold out with four corner tuck pockets



top pocket tags 



tabs at the top are made from a Stamping Up! tab punch I found at a local charity shop - happy day



cards for lower pockets



back of cards - used a thrift store rubber "memo" stamp









paper arts: girls album/journal

 

Mix of album space with journaling areas for my pre-teen granddaughter, including a special four generation album of women's photos (as teens) with brief profiles made into mini "books".  Also included is a small bullet journal, a small sketch pad, journaling cards and a fold-out memory album.  For privacy reasons most family photos not posted here. 

Majority of papers and trims are repurposed from a second hand store.
