Mini File folders for Junk journals

Check out my mini file folders that i made for pockets in my junk journals. I've been trying some different things with my We R Memory Keepers boards. The Green file folder is made with my tab board and then i also used the frame board for the frame in the front. I've also made other things using these boards that i'll share soon. Plenty more file folder mini's also.

I found the little girl holding the pig photo on pinterest
The paper is from Kaisercraft
The pig on the inside is a dictionary page that i cut out to use
Tim Holtz slot die
Eyelet with charm dangle

Tim Holtz mini paperclip to hold the front folder closed

Old book page stamped folded pockets

Still on my junk journal kick. I just love putting together all of these pockets for junk
 journal pages way in advance and then being able to just decorate and  pop them on the page. I also love the messiness of distress inking. Grungy right?  My fingers are always colored but that's okay. It wears off. lol
I used several Tim holtz stamps and some rooster and background stamps that i had in my stash. Vintage Photo Oxide Distress ink
Sewed around the outside edges with machine and brown thread.

Hubby's Birthday was yesterday.

Yesterday was Scott's Birthday. What a weekend! Busy Busy
Here is the card that i made Scott using a LOTV digital airplane image.
I just love these little vintage airplanes and since two people in my house so far, are going to be professional pilots (hubby is and daughter in college for), i thought this image was appropriate.

Window Envelopes for junk journals

I know, it's been awhile. This has been fair week and i feel like i've been running around a lot more than usual. I just want to be home crafting. lol
I still have the sewing machine out and going. lol. Check out my quilted window envelopes for junk journals that i've made. I just started a junk journal that looks really old in remembrance of my Grandmother who lived to be 100 years old. I have so many fond memories of her and so many things that she taught me when i was little.

I distressed regular envelopes for these and then added a die cut window to a distressed index card, printed my quilted/fall  image onto vellum and then placed  a book page behind that. Sewed along all four edges using a zig zag stitch and brown thread and glued down to envelope face.
