My First Junk Journal: The Completed Flick Through

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate. I am here with the flick through of my Junk Journal. I am so excited that it is finally complete and now I can start filling it with memories and thoughts. I think I might bring you along on that journey as well!

I have really enjoyed making my first Junk Journal and so excited to be sharing it with you.  In this series I have taken you through the process from start to finish. I have made mistakes and I have learned from them and I have enjoyed every minute.

If you missed the beginning episode 1 you can view it here :-) I will be doing this every Wednesday so do subscribe to not miss any. I have created a playlist on my YouTube channel so you can easily find all my tutorials in this series.

I am so excited that it is finished and now I can start to record my thoughts for 2020 :-)

Nigezza Creates My First Junk Journal: The Completed Flick Through

Measurements and Materials


I normally give you the measurements of my projects, but for this project this will not always be possible as it is often not precise as it involves ripping paper!

The signatures in this Junk Journal are me using A4 sheets folded in half to make an A5 sized journal.

I am really enjoying just eyeballing and ripping and being very imprecise!



Now watch the video video of my flick through the finished album :-)

Ornate Style Splat Technique

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, as promised I am here with the tutorial for the card I made for the monthly Colour Combo blog hop.  The colours this month were right up my street. I knew what I wanted to do as soon as I saw them. I wanted to try out the 'splat' technique, no idea if thats actually what it is called but I saw it demonstrated on a video hop I was on last month and I loved the effect so couldn't to try it. Check out Artfulstampin by Ruth. I thought Misty Moonlight over the top of Highland Heather would work really well.


Nigezza Creates with Stampin' Up! Ornate Style for the Colour Combo Blog Hop July 2020


Measurements and Materials

  • Card Base Sahara Sand
    • 8 1/4" x 5 7/8"
    • Score @ 4 1/8" on the long side
  • Mat 1 Misty Moonlight
    • 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
  • Mat 2 Whisper White 
    • 3 5/8" x 5 3/8"
  • I used the 'splat' technique to stamp the Highland Heather 
  • I used the Stamparatus so I could easily stamp in Misty Moonlight directly over the top
  • I 'spritzed' some Sahara Sand using a stampin' write marker over the white of the mat
  • I heat embossed the sentiment in white on Misty Moonlight and fussy cut it out


Now watch the video tutorial to see how this was made :-)

Blog Hop Round Up!

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it. Wow I had a busy weekend! I was on 4 blog hops! That is quite a bit of forward planning and lots of creating which of course I love. Just in case you missed them I thought I would do a round up so they are all here in one place. 


Nigezza Creates with Stampin' Up! for 4 blog hops!





Stamp N Hop

Nigezza Creates with Stampin' Up! Posted For You

The theme for this blog hop was the new 2020 - 2022 in colours from Stampin' Up! I made a monochrome card. I made the it in Misty Moonlight and then Just Jade. 

I will have the video tutorial on my YouTube channel on Friday so do pop back to see it them. 



Ink Stamp Share


Nigezza Creates with Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature ribbon storage


This is the first blog hop of the month for this group. The theme was anything goes so I designed some simple ribbon storage that was inspired by my team mate Heather Forgan from Nellies Hobbies

I have made a video tutorial for this project which is already on my YouTube channel. 




Joy Of Sets


Nigezza Creates with Stampin' Up! Stitched Stars Christmas In July


The theme for the Joy Of Sets blog hop was Christmas In July, this is the first Christmas card I have made this year.  I didn't do any stamping for this card, its all die cuts and dry embossing. 

I have made a video tutorial for this project which is already on my YouTube channel. 



Colour Combo


Nigezza Creates with Stampin' Up! Ornate Style for the Colour Combo Blog Hop July 2020



Loved the colour combo this month, Misty Moonlight, Highland Heather and Sahara Sand. I used a technique I'd seen on a video hop I was on last month with Artfulstampin with Ruth. Love how it turned out, will be doing this technique again. 

I have made a video tutorial for this project which will be on my YouTube channel tomorrow. 




I hope you like this blog hop round up. To make sure you don't miss any of my projects why not subscribe to my YouTube channel, follow my blog and subscribe to my newsletter? I will be back tomorrow, until then ...
