An essential handbook of junk journals

How to use handmade junk journals

You can write in them, paint in them, glue pictures in them, make lists in them.

Likewise, use them as guest books in your B&B, at a wedding, for a baby shower.

Keep memories in them, put your bills and receipts in them, make art in them. (Some papers may need to be prepared with gesso or collage before art materials can be used.)

I’m sure you can think of exactly why you need one (or two) junk journals!

My handmade junk journals are amazing …

… and for good reason!

I make them with love, enthusiasm, and attention to detail, coupled with my artistic bent. My background is artist, quilt artist, interior decorator, web designer and graphic designer. All in all, these skills help me enormously. Colour, pattern, texture, feelings — all speak to me loud and clear. Such fun every day!

I love making junk journals

Creating is like breathing for me!

I am

Passionate about using less and wasting less

In love with design, watercolour painting, decorating

Combining all that into handmade junk journals.


Inspiration is everywhere!

I have more trouble containing my imagination than having a creative block

Give me a piece of pretty paper and watch me go!


Select paper for pages

Choose a colour scheme or a theme

Get out die cuts, trims

Finding the right piece of ephemera is so exhilarating!
