Journal Pockets & Tags...

Hi Crafty friends! Welcome back. I always have plans to stay more active on my blog but let's face's not going to happen lol. Life is speeding past at a ridiculous rate and all I can manage to do is hang on!

Today I have managed some time in the studio and therefore I have a few projects to share with you. First is my latest addiction to creating journal pockets and tags. Ive recently purchased far too many vintage books ! I've decided to spend a little time creating some nice things for my or your junk journals. All of these are listed in my Etsy Shop.

 I hope you enjoyed today's projects and will come again soon! Thank you !

Lilacs & Lace Junk Journal

Hi Crafters! Welcome to my little studio. I get so excited when I find time to play around in my crafting space. Unfortunately it is far too limited but hopefully that is about to change:-)

 Today I am sharing my latest passion......junk journals! Oh my I have opened a can of worms here ! I am spending hours obsessing and binge watching youtube videos. So much talent in this world!

So on to my latest journal. I have combined my love for Pion papers, pattern papers, lace and beeswax to create this 4.5" x 7" junk journal. I started by cutting three layers of pattern, machine stitching them together then melting my beeswax onto the pattern cover. Lush!! I am crazy about effect this technique achieves and will be using it much more in future projects.

  The cover was created layering my pattern base, tea stained cheesecloth, Pion papers that have been distressed and finally adding fabric photo card from my Etsy shop

 This journal is a single signature with 3 hole pamphlet stitch and contains 28 writing pages all tea stained.There are 12 handmade tags and 14 pockets/tuck spots.

I hope you enjoyed today's project and are inspired to give one a try. Thank you for stopping by and please come again! Have a great day!
