Journal page… all about Chuck

Sat down and did a bit of journalling in my 2021 journal. Did a page about Lucky Chuck (rest in peace little hog). Used a mix of supplies from Lollipop Box Club kits.

It was an unplanned and pulled from many collections type of page … love it!

Considering doing a bit of a purge of the boxes that are almost finished and putting them into one organisation system… stickers in one place, die cuts in others… what do you think? At the moment I have no grasp on what is left in some kits and could do without a big pile of boxes on my desk.

Oh and if you are interested I did film this page being put together… here is the link!

Happy crafting!

Journalling 2021… May Bank holiday

Sharing another page in my 2021 junk journal… really love this way of documenting.

Once again I remembered to put the camera on … so check out the video here.

I mainly used the April Lollipop Box Club kit and had lots of fun with sewing and layers. Took me a while to come to a finishing point I must admit and still feel it needs something else but not sure exactly what just yet!

Love the fact I could use the tab on the pull out card, and although my writing ends up a bit scruffy love the fact that the new SU colour Soft Succulent coordinates so well with the colours in the kit.

Also love the shimmer paint I added to the background. I know the pics don’t do it justice, but Little Rainbow Moon paints are just so lovely to use.

Happy crafting!

Catching up in my 2021 journal

I’ve had such a small amount of crafting time this month, but last night I had myself some journalling time and managed a page in my 2021 journal.

I used papers from the May Lollipop Box Club kit and then trawled through other kits to find other bits and pieces to add onto the page and finish it off.

Had lots of fun making it, and it was a perfect end to the day. Really wish I could spend more time crafting!

I did actually video the process and just uploaded it to YouTube here. If you fancy watching my process please check it out.

Happy crafting!

Junk journal 2021… covid vaccine

This week I am actually off to the hospital for my 2nd jab tomorrow, but I did actually document the first jab in my 2021 junk journal.

I did this page quite quickly with the photos from the day and using the Lollipop Box Club kit from Feb…

I also added some bits of washi I had been sent on a swap, but I had kept for the purpose of using them on a page at some point… I love keeping bits and pieces like this and then finding a use for them.

I added some journalling on the back of the bits I added into the pocket I made from a kit bag. These include the not so pleasant side effects I ended up with from the vaccine…but I still was so happy to be getting the vaccine and to become part of the solution to moving on with our lives!

Now fingers crossed the 2nd jab doesn’t cause too many side effects tomorrow.

Happy crafting!

Junk journalling- Christmas journal

Hi there … I’ve somehow posted this earlier when I hadn’t linked up the video so posting it again now… sorry for the repeat project!

Another page added to my homemade Christmas journal. Again I went with a photo from 2020, this time 29th December, when we went for a walk in the snow.

I went for lots of texture with the stencilling and the crochet trim, lace and washi.

Super happy with it!

I added journalling behind the picture and on the tag.

If you fancy seeing how I made it and hearing my rambles, check out the YouTube process video.

Happy crafting!

Junk Journal Jan – March 2021

Today I did some finishing off on my junk journal and have actually completed the January to March signature.

Filmed a flip through which is here on my YouTube channel. I have a couple of pages however left to blog about so some of the video should be considered a sneak peek! Lol!

Anyway here are the pages I did today…

Firstly a simple page documenting my daughters 15th birthday with some pics I put on social media charting her growth into a beautiful young woman. I used the Art by Marlene collage paper as the backdrop and then some washi, an index card I cut up and some foam stickers and decided that was all I needed with all the pics.

Next a very plain page in comparison… some stencilling and washi tape and the photo on a flip out to hide the journalling… simple and works well with the brown paper page.

Finally the inside back cover which I had added a swap to and then some green spotty doily I also added the lacy trim to the edge with some very suspect sewing! Again let the pictures do all the work.

Looking forward to seeing whatbi can document for the next three months in the next signature!

Happy crafting!

More junk journalling … very interactive fold out page

Today I have a very interactive fold out page in my junk journal which I made and documented the different fashion statements of lockdown… pj’s or full makeup and nice dress!

I made this page over a series of sessions and threw loads of bits at it… patterned papers, stickers and washi…

Really happy with how it ended up.

Fun to create something with so many elements and fold outs and hidden bits of journalling.

Happy crafting!

Junk Journal 2021 … a couple of pages

I’ve got a few pages in my junk journal for 2021 to share with you.

First up a page documenting a trip to the new office. Admittedly it was only a quick visit to reception to collect a new laptop but still it was my first real visit inside and I love how modern and posh it looked. Lookong forward to the day when we can get in there to actually work for the day and use all the facilities.

I took two pics and got them printed off and created the flip up to fit both pics and the journalling. Used lots of bits of papers I had in the box of bits, plus some bits I received in the post that day (the yellow ombre was a card I received, the brown was part of an envelope).

Next up a simple page documenting the new logo for my blog… well why the heck not?

Love these very different but fun pages.

Happy crafting!
