More personal and less formal than a scrapbook, junk journals are perfect for preserving specific moments, experiences and attitudes.
Fill notebooks with movie and event tickets, favorite photos, menus, place mats, pressed flowers, receipts, notes, fortune cookie fortunes, bus tickets, pics clipped from magazines…anything that freezes a moment in time for you. Make notes in your own handwriting.
These are made with old book covers, blank pages for filling, and whimsical patterned paper pages scattered throughout.

I love hunting around junk shops, antique stores, paper shops and scrapbooking warehouses to find odds and ends like vintage bingo cards, buttons, tickets, postcards, ribbon, old stamps, paper flowers, game pieces, paper dolls, etc. They give scrapbook and journal pages life, texture and color. These kits are $5 a piece.
