Freebies, Junk Journal

The Day Before

I can’t believe how fast time flies. It seemed in April that it would be quite some time before that little one joined us & here it is….

SotC Layered Border Off we go

time to drive across America & meet him. I cannot wait. The hardest part of this trip is leaving my little companion behind. He’ll be well cared for by family, one who is staying with him, but I can’t help but shed a few tears. I’ll miss him so.

I’m definitely going to try posting a blog or two while I’m away, but not promising a darn thing. I want to remind you that soon the lovely Flower Gathering Junk Journal Kit will no longer be free.

Download it now because September 1st is approaching with a mad rush into autumn. You’ll find all the info you need in the previous post or just click Here.

So much to do. Have a wonderful weekend!

Junk Journal, Studio on the Corner Etsy Shop

Boom!

Good Morning, friends! It’s raining, dark, cloudy & warm rather like a tropical forest in NW Ohio. The gardens & flowers needed the rain, so I’m not complaining. Did you decide to take the junk journal journey? Have you downloaded the kits? I hope you checked out the videos I shared, they’re easy to follow & inspiring…at least they were for me.  I’m gathering up lots of ‘junk’ for my journal & planning the next one, two, better make it three journals. After Flower Gathering I’m moving on to a reading journal & a travel journal. The journal journey is some kind of wonderful.  In case you missed it, you can download the kits by clicking on the links below:

Kit #1       

Kit #2 

I’m working on the PDF Directions for creating junk journals along with a tutorial for adding text in Adobe Reader all while creating printables for Studio on the Corner Etsy shop.  Wheewwww….everything takes time.

Speaking of SotC Etsy shop, there’s a fun, new listing, BOOM! Yep, that’s the title & if you’re planning a July 4th get-together & thinking this is the year for a vintage vibe you’ll want to check it out…

Boom Banner 1

 

There are 6 flags all together, 2 have old-fashioned firecrackers on them. Each flag is about 8 inches wide & 10 inches long. Expect to see distressed bits & grungy parts all added to give an aged appearance. The images were drawn from an old Type Foundry book. Love the twinkler border!

The banner is listed, but more will be coming along this weekend.  An invitation with an adding text via Adobe Reader (PDF) option. . .

0623170952

along with party decor like napkin rings, food tents, water bottle labels, & candy wrappers will be available. Look for the Boom! invitation later today. Once everthing in the Boom! colletion is listed, it’s all about options, you can purchase just the banner or invitation or party decor or purchase all in one big party package. BOOM!

Have a fantastic weekend!

Freebies, Junk Journal, Studio on the Corner Etsy Shop

6-16-2017

Oh my gosh! It’s finally ready to deliver to you…Kit No. 2 of the Flower Gathering Junk Journal. So sorry it’s taken so long, but as a freebie I work on it in between other projects, but it is totally worth the wait.

Junk Journal Journey

0616171006

What’s in kit no. 2, you ask? It starts with 4 pages/papers plus 1. The extra paper is a solid-colored, aged paper that you can use in oh so many ways. You may want to print on both sides using a solid paper on one side. More on ideas, tips & directions later. Each paper has an image or pattern from an old source, the lace border began as muslin pattern from the early 1800s.

Ok, ok…what else is in the Flowering Gathering Junk Journal kit no. 2?

Let’s just list the items:

JJ Blog Image _edited-1

  1. Five Pages/Papers JPGs
  2. Three Ephemera Sheets with tags, flower cards, rounds in 2 inch & 1.25 inch & a journal card
  3. Three pages of pockets in various sizes

All together there are 36 embellishments for your junk journal & 5 papers.  (Not all are shown)

This is rather large zipped folder to download & depending on your internet connection, it may take some time, but be patient…Good Things Come to Those Who Wait!

SotC Flower Gathering Junk Journal Kit No. 2

Just in case you missed the Flower Gathering Kit No. 1 Here’s the link: SotC Flower Gathering Kit Junk Journal Kit No. 1

Coming Soon to Blog

If you’re loving the idea of a junk journal but not sure just how to get started, I’ll be sharing a PDF that will have directions, resources, ideas, & tips to help you along the way. You’ll be able to download the PDF & have the manual at your fingertips whenever you want to work on your journal.

I want to remind you that the kits will be available for free for a short time. At some point in the future they will be removed from the blog & listed on Studio on the Corner Etsy shop. The SotC shop version will have more options such as PDF editable tags so you can add text, individual PNG files allowing the bits & pieces to be used in digital projects, plus extras not in the Freebie packages. Don’t worry though, this will not happen for a while.

Resources

Here are some new resources and ones I shared in the Kit 1 Post. Check these wonderful resources out to acquaint yourself with junk journaling & get you on your merry way.

Last but not least:  Studio on the Corner Etsy Shop for vintage tags, papers, and general paperie stuff.

Whooaaa…that’s a long post!  Hope you enjoy the Flower Gathering Kit 2 & keep in mind there’s a PDF with Directions, Tips, & Resources manual to help you on your junk journal journey that will soon be available for download.  Have a wonderful weekend!
