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.

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:

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

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.

I love these six step by step YouTube videos of Marianne Kensington, she is so comfortable & comes across like a good friend explaining how to create a junk journal. If you have a moment you might also want to check out her Facebook Page.

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!

Something New

Oh my so much is going on! Easter is just a few days away, there’s a shower on the  horizon & I’m working on a special little project for a special little someone. I don’t want to give too much away because you just never know who’s visiting Studio on the Corner.

Baby Hugging Mommy

The above image is from a 1916 baby book. The little book is filled with wonderful images of babies & beautiful borders along with tidbits of information about my children’s grandfather. This little book seems to me a treasure & as charming reason why not to toss out the ephemera of the past. Reading about growth & baby’s needs was, as I’ve said before, a way of reaching across time. Sadly, my son never knew his grandfather so perhaps this little book will give him some insight into his grandpa.

Brothers-&-Sisters-low-res

Using these enchanting images in my project for the next generation has been an exciting, sometimes emotional journey. And yes….I’m going to be mimi again in a few months & I’m over the moon!

Freebies Type

You were promised a freebie this week & here comes A Touch of the 20s journal cards. Each card measures 4-inches x 6-inches with a 1920s vibe. You’ll find 6 all together, but only 3 are pictured. The cards comes as JPGs & PDFs so you can add text to them or if you prefer, just get out your favorite pen & handwrite on the vintage-inspired journal cards.

Just click…  A Touch of the 20s a popup window will appear & away you’ll go.

If you’re wondering what to do with a 4×6-inch journal card, how about….

  1. Use them for menus at fancy dinners or just for fun
  2. Place them in art or junk journals
  3. Write a lovely note to a friend or family member, insert into an envelope & whoooaaa place a stamp on it & mail it!
  4. Use one as an invitation to a party
  5. Attach one to your social media header/banner & write updates on it. Don’t forget to duplicate so you can change it up as often as you like.

Time is closing in for me to finish up the project, so I must be off. By the way…I’ll be sharing the entire project in May. I hope you’ll stop back & check it out then. In the meantime….have a fabulous day!
