Burlap Birdies

Welcome back everybody!

So, on FaceBook I belong to a few special groups one being a Junk Journal Junkies. In this group there are swaps and this is a journal I made for one that will happen in September. Yes, I am an overachiever! I may add some goodies as we get closer, but mostly I love to leave a lot of open space in my journals to actually use them as journals! Crazy I know right?

This is my burlap birdie junk journal. I plan on using this for the My Life in Pictures swap. I have to add 10 pics of my life and add thru-out the journal. Our swaps are one on one swaps.

The inside is the same as my other one, using s smaller envelope to create a multi pocket system.

This glassine bag was made from a Stampin Up metal die. I also made a dangle charm to add to this paper clip.

I created a mini flip style book to add under this belly band. I also found out that using an inkjet printer your digital images will run if you dip them into coffee. So, to get around that problem I spray my pages with coffee making sure to keep the coffee away from my digi's. Works well!

I added a lot of machine stitching in this journal like I do for all of my journals. Love my machine!

Here's another one of the parchment papers I had baked on. You can write on these pages with markers and some pens, or you can glue memorabilia to the page.

More goodness. I made this journal and the other mailing envelope journal kinda in tandem so they do look a lot alike. But I love how they turned out!

Thanks for stopping by!
