Hello Dear Friends,

I have been traveling with my husband for his work. But there is always time for a project or two!! I literally took one whole suitcase of projects to work on. I am always more ambitious than time allows!! 😉

Here’s a quick peak at my drafting table ready to get started….

OK, yes…I am a two fist-ed tea and coffee drinker!! 😉 Gotta have my beverages!!! I LOVE a hot cup of coffee and some iced green tea!! And I LOVE this little beach clip cup holder I found at Walmart. It is great to hold my tea on the side of my drafting table. It’s great…no water sweating on my work surface!! 🙂 And very, very affordable…thanks Walmart!! 😉

Here’s some fun File Folder Junk Journals that I will be listing in my Etsy shop, posting on my YouTube Channel and my Instagram later this week. Please be sure to drop back by and take a look see!! 😉

Many thanks to all the sweet ladies on YouTube and many blogs sharing their creations of Junk Journals that have helped me develop mine. 🙂 Such a wonderful online community of crafters!!

Here’s how I make these fun File Folder Junk Journals:

Each has 2-3 signatures, a clip and a band with decorating/journaling pages for each journal.

Here’s some of the process:

file folders selection 3 file folder junk journal waxed twine

First I select the materials I will use. File folders, waxed twine, pages for the signatures, beads, bands, etc.

Next I measure, check and recheck. Then score and attach the folds.

Next I measure and then punch my holes for the folder to hold my signatures. I LOVE this simple awl…it always does the trick on punching paper/cardstock, easy peasy.

I then begin to build the signatures with all kinds of fun finds!! This week I was gathering fun inserts from the Korean market!! And I always try to include a current calendar in each one. I LOVE the whimsy of junk journals!! 🙂

After I build 2-3 signatures for each journal, I then begin accessorizing! I also include a clear business card slot in each one. 🙂

Finally I add my add my band and beads. I love to add a trinket to the band to help close it. And I love the beads on the spine as well. The opportunities are endless with all the clips, markers, etc.!!

Now this fun File Folder Junk Journal is ready for it’s newest recording of the owner’s next FUN adventure!! 🙂

Holiday Gift Memory Albums

  

Hello Friends,

A note to share with you some of the Fall options.

I will be offering Photo/Memory Album making again this Fall. I know so many love scrapbook or photo albums but don’t have the time to make them for your family and friends…or know where to start. I have taught and made albums for over 20 years. I love being our family’s historian of special events!! And I love teaching and making albums for others to preserve their wonderful memories beautifully gathered in lovely albums to keep, share or give as priceless gifts of love to family and friends!!

 So with all the fun gift giving season coming soon, I have been asked to come back and offer my handmade scrapbook/photo album making services.

I supply the album, embellishments, specialty papers, page protectors and you supply your beautiful pictures and memorabilia!! All pages and supplies are photo safe/acid free. I also page protect each page for years and years of use and enjoyment.

Just contact me and we can determine the current wait time (the earlier the better…before the holiday rush). It usually takes me 2 weeks once all items have been received plus shipping time. I send all by priority mail.

Please see the details, prices and feel free to contact me with any questions.

Have a wonderful week in the Lord,
