Junk Journal Folio Tutorial - EASY


I had so much fun making this new junk journal Folio design. I wanted to make sure that I used items that could be easy to gather to be able to put something like this together. 

You can use your fave papers, and designs. Plus so much room to add ephemera and embellishments. A quick and easy project! This would be great to make for a grandparent and fill it with photos and art work from your kids. A handmade album or a scrapbook that you can add and take pages away if you wanted. I love how it came out.

For those of you that wanted the measurements:

Large Envelope used for the cover 12" x 9"

Envelopes used for the flip out - use what you have. The larger one I used was 7 1/4" x 5"

Pages used for the journals are optional in size, but I used 8 1/2" x 11" paper folded in half.

Happy Crafting!

One Page Wonder - Use Up Your 12" Papers


I love easy paper projects that you can make in little time. I also love to use up my scrapbook papers that I don't often find I would be reaching for. Making something fun and interactive is one of my fave things to do. This one is so easy and fun to put together. Grab your stash of goodies and make many to send to friends!

I shared this tutorial on my channel recently and it's been a video that many have enjoyed. I hope you find some inspiration. Remember to check out my channel playlist for more creative ideas from beginner to more advanced crafters.

Once you learn how to make the base project, you will see how easy it is to add your own embellishments and ephemera. 

Happy Crafting!

Tuxedo Tri-fold Pocket - Ephemera Holder

I had so much fun making these tri-fold pockets. I like that you only need one sheet of paper to make the base then add your embellishments and ephemera as you go.

It holds so many pieces and it is great to send in snail mail and for swaps! You can use any paper you have and all you need to do is cut it to size. 

I have a quick tutorial video showing how I made them. I hope you enjoy making some!.For more ideas and inspiration, check out the playlists on my channel. 😊

Happy crafting,

Pocket Letters Snail Mail Ideas

I've recently found a new to me snail mail alternative! I am in obsessed with pocket letters now. So many reasons to love these easy to put together happy mail packs. This idea has been around for a few years, but I have just now began to discover them. 

I was recently in a swap to make some of these pocket letters and I had so much fun adding to each pocket and loading it with ephemera and bits and bobs that the person receiving it can use in their own creations.

I love the idea of making a little collage, or adding some pockets or tuck spots, making a little collage for the front of the pockets and adding goodies to the back. 

Have you made pocket letters before? I am open to swapping for some at the moment. So send me an email if you want to participate. I only have a few spots left for a swap. Check out the video I made showing some of the items I included in these and what I did putting them together. 

Happy Crafting,
