The Latest Projects - Nature Journal Embellishments

I recently made a few videos to show some embellishments I was creating for a nature journal I'm working on.  First I made page tab clusters and my main goal was to incorporate some pressed leaves into the project.  Next, I wanted to recycle some packaging and clothing tags into pockets and tuck spots.  I really enjoy the process of gathering items and making them work together. I hope you're inspired to try these out! Debbie xo

Vintage Junk Journal - 'Cambridge'

I recently created a masculine/industrial junk journal using the cover from a vintage 'Cambridge Encyclopedia'. It was a perfect match for the Gentlemen and Scholars collection so I incorporated it into the project as well, along with images from old books and assorted ephemera.   If you're interested in seeing the entire project, I've got a video: Happy Holidays!

Junk Journal Q & A - Favourite Adhesives

This summer, I'm doing a Q & A series to answer some of your most frequently asked questions about making journals.  The first one addresses the types of glues I like to use. I've tried many over the years and have settled on these at this time because they work best for the types of journals I make.  Debbie xo

Photoshop Elements Tutorial - How to Resize Journal Pages

If you enjoy using printable journal kits and sometimes would like to print them to fit inside an existing book cover, this tutorial is for you. It's for Photoshop Elements which I know many people have but don't use. It's the most basic method for resizing without being too concerned for maintaining the aspect ratio of the original image.   I hope it helps you make better use of your printables! Debbie xo

Garden Medley - Vintage Junk Journal

Creating one journal with my new Garden Medley collection wasn't enough, so I made this one as well! This time, I used a Condensed Reader's Digest book cover and added beautiful upholstery fabric, an antique photo frame and other embellishments.  Debbie xo
