My First Junk Journal #2 Making The Cover

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate. I am so excited to be sharing with you the second episode of my first Junk Journal.  If you missed episode 1 you can view it here :-)

So this is a series that takes you through the process from start to finish ...not that it is finished yet of course! It is a work in progress and I hope you will join me. I have made mistakes and I have learned from them and I have enjoyed every minute.

This episode shows you how I made the cover of the journal.

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 have used ordinary copier paper, music printed paper, graph paper, pattered paper, old maps, book pages, doilies and envelopes that I dyed with coffee, tea and avocado.

I have used Stampin' Up! inks and stamps and lots of long neglected stash that have been hoarded over the decades!


Now watch the #2 video tutorial in this Junk Journal series :-)

Video Tutorial



I have taken some screen shots from the video to hopefully help you see what I was doing.
