Hello friends! Karla back today with a handmade Junk Journal created with Pam Bray’s beautiful Sensations Collection and the We R Memory Keepers Book Binding Tool! This was so much fun to make. I started off by cutting five sheets of paper in various sizes and creasing them to fold them in half. I then poked the holes in the middle of each sheet and bound them together using the Saddle Stitch, which sews the center of the Journal together. (Paper Dimensions below)
I added some pockets in the wider sheets of cardstock by folding the edges back as well. There are unlimited possibilities when you get creating! After getting the base of the journal together I added some of the cut apart elements from the Sensations paper pack to create flaps, and fussy cut various images to add embellishments to the pages. I used Pam’s new Embossing Powder, Burnt Anther, for extra texture on the cover and on one of the tags inside. You get to see the amazing texture and metallic beads in this powder as you layer it on thicker!
I created a planner clip with one of the coordinating Flair Badges and a paper clip! I then had fun digging through my stash and finding journaling papers, stickers and images to glue inside. The Tim Holtz Chit Chat Stickers and Simple Stories sentiments were perfect to add some text on each page.
