I’m so eerily excited at the way this junk journal turned out!
I wanted to create an old, gothic feeling journal, so I decided to tear all my pages (including the main book pages that I bound together with seam binding) instead of cutting them with a paper trimmer.
I loved the illustrations so much that it was easy to let them be the star, so I added only a few embellishments here and there. I did make my own resin pieces for this book, however, and I think they really added a nice touch. I have a YouTube video all about that process too, if you’d like to see just how easy they are to make:
Hope you enjoyed this flip-through blog journey with me today. May it inspire your creativity this week. Please let me know what you think and follow me on Facebook and Instagram for daily crafty goodness!
I also have hundreds of handmade journals, premade scrapbook pages, and greeting cards in my Bella Stitchery eBay shop!
Thanks so much, and keep in touch, my crafty friends! xoxo
Autumn isn’t just for oranges and browns. I love mixing it up from time to time with pastels and pinks, so I was delighted that this month’s Woodland Whimsy kit from The Handmade Club embraced those shabby chic colors too!
I printed out lots of gorgeous illustrations from the collection onto 65lb Neenah cardstock and then went fussy-cutting!
I love the darling fairies, roses, and pumpkins! There are also lots of darling foxes and rabbits in the kit too, for good measure.
All my premade layouts are available for purchase in my eBay shop too! Only one of each available, so grab the one that speaks to your heart and get yourself some happy mail!
Which one is your favorite? I’d love to hear your feedback!
Thanks so much for crafting with me today! xoxo
I’m new on the design team for Shabby Art Boutique and this is my very first project using the August 2020 Field of Flowers printable kit.
I had so much fun fussy cutting lots of shabby chic details, from this adorable little girl to lots of 3D “flying” butterflies.
I added more dimension with a painted chipboard fence by Scrapaholics.
I love the way the printables popped against white cardstock and some watercolor splatter.
You can purchase this premade layout from my eBay shop too! Just add your favorite photo, and then put it in your album or a shadowbox!
Thanks so much for crafting with me today and happy scrapbooking! xoxo
Junk journals are just such a joy to make. They are a little of this and that, and are filled with everything that make me feel happy at the time.
Here is a journal I made from a vintage Easter sheet music book and the Lady Amelia’s Portrait Journal printable kit from Kelly’s Crafts by Kelly.
Here’s the before and after of my 8.5×10.5 inch sheet music book:
The album cover was embellished by several packs of the Prima Marketing Georgia Blues flowers (LOVE these!)
You can see a full flip through, along with lots more pretty details on my YouTube channel:
My finished journal is also now available in my eBay shop, and ready for a good home. 🙂
Thank you so much, my friend, for crafting with me today! I hope this journal inspired you – please keep in touch and happy crafting! xoxo

We all view the world through a different lens, and may have very strong feelings about what’s happening in it today. However, I think one thing unites us: Prima Marketing. I think we can all agree that they make the most AMAZING goodies!
This week, I worked with the Pretty Mosaic collection. What an absolute pleasure!
The paper reminds me of those old historic mansions, with crumbling tiles and high ceilings. I felt like I should be wearing an organza gown of some sort and be posing on ancient stairs. It’s so very romantic and cozy.
All my premade layouts are available in my eBay shop too! See something here that speaks to the old castle-lover in you? Stop by my shop and I can send it to you!
Thanks for taking this charming tour with me today. Happy crafting, my friend! xoxo
This scrapbook page really encompasses so much of what I love about paper crafting – die cuts, chipboard, flowers, paint, lace… I mean, seriously.
I used the Bo Bunny Botanical Journal collection for this happy, cottage style layout and embellished it with lots of shabby chic goodies. One of my favorite things on this page is the Roman clock chipboard piece by Scrapaholics. I love the way it looks when painted!
The Lavender Frost fabric flowers from Prima Marketing make this page feel so cottage cozy!
I found these printables on Pinterest for the butterflies in my page, if you’d like to print them too. I printed them at a 5×7 inch size to get the butterflies you see here:
Hope this pretty scrapbook project makes you as happy to look at as the joy I had while making it. Thanks for being a part of my craft community – please keep in touch!

I love Lindy’s Gang Magicals for so many reasons – one of which is their versatility. When mixed with some white gesso, it’s so super easy to make custom paint colors!
Here’s a video about the simple, one-step process (I DID say it was easy right?):
I used this technique with each of the 5 colors in the Drop Dead Diva Magicals set to make this fun mixed media scrapbook layout too! You can purchase this happy layout from my eBay shop as well (only one available).
Hope you found this colorful article inspiring! Let me know what you think. Have you used Magicals before? What is your favorite way to use them? I’d love to hear your thoughts, feedback and comments. Keep in touch, and let’s make stuff! xoxo
