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

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

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.
