Memories Junk Journal

6/1/20 Winner AND Honorable Mention at Pammie’s Inky Pinkies Challenges!
6/4/20 Top Pick of the Week at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge!

Howdy, friends! Happy Friday – hope you are enjoying your down-slide to the weekend! I’ve popped in with a fun junk journal I finished yesterday afternoon for The Outlawz Twisted Thursdays Challenge where the challenges are always Anything Goes with an optional twist. Our sponsor this month is Vectoria Designs and this time the twist is pearls and lace which goes so well with their ‘shabby chic’ line.

I had the Vectoria Designs Botanical Junk Journal Kit in my digital printable stash so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to use it. I printed the cover and all the pages on 60# Hammermill copy paper which yields the best print quality. I trimmed all the pages and inked the edges with walnut stain ink prior to assembling the journal. I added Washi Tape and paper lace along the spine on the front and back, and then added gold flat-back pearls to the paper lace on the front along with filigree metal pieces on the two outside corners. I attached jute cord with bronze charms to the spine. I adhered a label from the kit to the front and spelled out the word ‘Memories’ in gold glitter alpha stickers, and then added a large paper flower that I ‘dirtied up’ with some antique linen distress ink. I added small pieces of the paper lace to a few of the inside pages to complete the journal.


And here’s one more peek… absolutely loving how this turned out! There is plenty of room on every page for journaling and adding photos to capture those memories! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
