Did Someone Say Cheese a Junk Journal
Linda here to share my project: Did Someone Say Cheese a Junk Journal. I'm on a mission for the month of July to make a Junk Journal every day. I decided that I would use Brutus Monroe Stamps for today's #junkjournaljuly project.
Supplies for Did Someone Say Cheese a Junk Journal:
Brutus Monroe Stamp sets: Brutus and Friends, Snap
Brutus Monroe Detail Ink Raven, Cabbage surface ink
Dog Days paper pad from Deja Views
Random papers; dictionary page, coloring book page, designer paper and old book pages
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Blarney, Moss, Dazzling Diamonds
Dymo Label Maker
Tim Holtz Distressed Ink Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Crushed Olive
Ranger Blending Tools
Zig Two Way Glue Pen
DOTS grass stamp
Waxed linen Thread
Jumbo Paper Clips
Book Binding Needle
Made this 8.25 inch tall by 4.25 inch wide Did Someone Say Cheese a Junk Journal with 12 sheets of paper to make 48 pages for this Travelers Notebook Insert.
I found an old paper stack or pack in my stash that I picked up years ago from Big Lots, It is from Deja Views and has really cute Dog papers in the theme of Dog Days. This became my foundation for the journal design. Trim the papers to be 8.25 Tall and at least 8.5 inches wide. Can leave some pages wider and create a flip out. I did this on all of the 12 inch x 12 inch papers. I like the extra space to add writing to the journal.
Knowing that I had the Brutus & Friends stamp set I knew this would be a super cute junk journal.
Here is a video of the process. It took me about an hour to complete this journal after I cut the papers. I was able to edit the video to under thirty minutes.
As a stamper I love having the ability to create scenes with stamps. I was able to give personality to the pages and added custom elements.
Take a look at your stamps and realize that stamp sets can be mixed to expand your art tools. That's what I love about Brutus Monroe Stamps, these all work well together.
