MY "Tulsa Vintage Show" Junk Journal

Happy Monday!! I hope that you are having a blessed day. It has been a beautiful day here in the Ozarks.
Over the
Labor Day weekend, my sister and niece and I went to the Tulsa Vintage Show in Oklahoma. The shopping was GREAT!  While browsing through the booths, I picked up several cards advertising upcoming Junk shows. I decided to make a junk journal with my finds, cards and the few pictures I had taken with the phone. I had a blast making this.

Junk Journal
 I used my Cinch for the binding.
 Tim holtz "Wall Flowers" used on the front and back cover.
 Junk Ranch - Oh how I want to go!
 I used the We R Memory Keepers typewriter to journal.
 Old Air Mail envelope that I picked up at the show.
 This is a large card for an upcoming show that I cut in half.
 I used brown lunch bags for some pages.
 Kept several receipts and stapled them in the journal.
 More receipts and awesome finds.
 Love the manila tags.

Julie Nutting "Belle Vie" Mini Album

What a FANTASTIC Sunday! It is such a beautiful day here in Missouri. The temp is in the 70's with an overcast sky, which is wonderful after all the high humidity and high temps lately

The page on the right is waterfall of photo mattes.
 Each of these pages to the left fold out.
 I have booklets in each of the pockets throughout.
 Beautiful papers.

Unforgettable Memories Travel Junk Journal

Happy Sunday!!
It has been awhile since I have had a post here on the blog.  Sorry for the time span between this post and the last one. Life seems to be so busy.
My sister and I took vacation together a few weeks ago and we had a blast. Our destination was a small town in the southern part of New Mexico called Alamogordo. We planned our trip heading down one route then another route to return home. We wanted to see something different doing it this way.
I made two blank Junk Journals, one for her and one for myself to fill out each night as we stop to rest for the night in our hotel room. We printed our photos on my Canon Selphy CP 910. I packed very limited supplies for us to work with, mainly just a glue runner, small paper trimmer, one roll washi tape,  stapler, Tim Holtz mini word cards, and a few ink stamps. Here are a few photos from my  Junk Journal.

 It came out quite chunky.
 I saved all my receipts.
 I cut down photos to make them smaller in size.
 Pockets were plenty to hold 4x6 photos.
Journaling throughout.

Little Coffee Stained Journal Book

I hope everyone had a great New Years. I didn't make any resolutions as I normally would.  I just hope to make time for those things I enjoy doing in this new year.
 It has been a really cold day here in the Mid-West. Snowed first thing this morning, but didn't accumulate. Temps are to fall in the single digits tonight with wind chills to -10.  Brrrrr.  I think winter is definitely showing its ugly face!
 With that said, here is a little coffee stained journal book that I wanted to share with you today.  I used some Tim Holtz Correspondence paper along with those coffee stained papers.

 I used a book plate on the cover.
 Coordinating washi tape throughout.
 I even stained and baked the patterned paper.
 I did some stitching on the pockets.
 These are a few vintage tickets I picked up at the Two Friends and Junk sale.

 I love stained papers.

 More pockets.
