Vintage Junk Journals

Here are just a few photos from two more Antiquities Vintage Junk Journals I  made. They measure 9 1/2" x 6"  and have chipboard covers. I used coffee stained manila folders, stained #10 envelopes, stained ruled notebook paper, coffee sleeves, old vintage photo postcards, stained tags, stained vintage car magazine inserts, vintage paper bags,  and paper from the Antiquities collection. I used G45 and Tim Holtz stamps and each album has 2 charms hanging from the binding. They are both are assembled differently and are both similar to the Antiquities Vintage Smash/Junk Journal that I made in a swap recently. Below is the video link to give you an idea of what the inside looks like. I didn't use the Starbucks paper bag in these two journals, instead I used the vintage paper bags

  6. Susie, your albums are sooo inspiring. I haven't been to visit for a few weeks, but am so in awe of A Ladies' Diary album you posted back in June. We've only just received those papers in the last week or so and you've given me so many ideas. And these Vintage albums are just gorgeous! Helen (Sydney)

  7. That is just beautiful!!! I love it!!!

  8. Im just wondering how did you colour the papers? Not with coffee stain but the the ones that have colours?
