Memories Junk Journal

Hi everyone and welcome! Following the success of my last junk journal I'm back with a new one, this time a feminine shabby chic version that would be perfect for storing memories from weddings, christenings or proms. Once again it features the newly released Sizzix die from Eileen Hull Designs new HeARTfelt collection called 'Journal' - this die is designed to create covers which will hold regular Travelers Notebook sized inserts as well as those custom junk journal versions that are proving to be exceptionally popular online.


As before there is a video walk through below to take you through the details of the cover construction and inserts;



I mentioned Eileen Hull had created a fabulous video tutorial demonstrating how to create tassels using her Twist & Style Tool and here's the link;

And here are some close up photos of the completed journal with it's 'junk' inserts, all vintage in style and with a botanical theme to echo the cover:


I love the touch of understated glamour added to the centres of the flowers by the Moissanite gemstones from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies - as you move the journal around in the light they pick up rainbow glints in various shades of purple, blue and green.






Want to have fun and make your own junk journal to store those precious memories?
First up you'll need the Eileen Hull Designs Journal die from her HeARTfelt collection by Sizzix, available to pre-order from:

US stockist; The Funkie Junkie Boutique
UK stockist; Sir Stampalot
UK stockist; Country View Crafts

And then, the beauty of junk journals is that you can make the signatures out of any junk you like! Here are some links to favourite YouTubers who make fabulous junk journals and inserts to inspire you even more; Beth Wallen, Liz thepaperproject, Tiffy Butter, Amity Bloom, Nik the BooksmithMichelle Mooney (The Paper Addiction) and Denise (Practice Makes Pretty)

And if you'd prefer to make a Journal but in a totally different style then Eileen Hull has a whole heap of ideas appearing on her FB page Eileen Hull Designs from her incredible Design Team and a host of other guest designers.

I think that's covered everything for this one but if you do have any questions at all please leave a comment below and I'll do my best to help.
For now get creative, have fun and take care of yourselves. Jenny xxx
