Junk Journal progress – and an odd addition from packaging

Leave a comment

I am still beavering away behind the scenes, working on that l o n g accordion junk journal. I am always on the look-out for interesting inclusions and this week I got a really fun one. I ordered a few things from Paperchase, including the CUTEST Father’s Day card for my Hubby.

Frankly, I do have a shish kebab stamp and if I could have worked out an easy way to do the 3D waffle effect of the grill I might have tried to make it, but time was short. Anyway, the packaging was brown paper that was unlike any I have seen. I like it a LOT better than miles of bubble wrap, if I’m honest. The interesting part was that it tore off into perfectly sized little squares, albeit wrinkly ones:

And from there it was easy to stamp some journaling lines on the bits and create a little note pad to slip inside a small envelope as the journaling spot on a page!

I also made a little flip-flop-flappy thing from a magazine advert with a cool image and a ink+embossing folder sample and one from an old Wagamama menu.

At some point I will finish this and be ready to actually work in it. Where it goes when I get to that point, I don’t quite know yet. I’m just enjoying the process!

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you found something interesting and welcome your feedback. If you ask a question, and don't add your email, do either subscribe to replies or check back. I try to answer every question if I can. Cheers!
