So in love with making Junk Journals!

I go through phases In my Paper Crafting! I love to make cards, but now I've found I love to everything with paper! My newest addiction is Junk journals! Once you try one, you fall in love.  So many techniques and stamps all in one place! Most of my junk journals are made with Coffee Stained paper that I make and bake myself.  I've now found,( thanks to a friend) that I love the feel and result of using Tracing paper within my junk journal.  I find things laying around and think, oh i'll just put this in my junk journal. 
On Saturday, I posted the pictures of all of my tags that I created for this junk journal to add in the pockets and Tucks. I've figured out that Gel pens work best for me to write on the coffee stained pages.  I'm always looking for something new to make or do.  I handmade all of my Paperclip embellishments. I've started making my own Magnetic Book marks to add. The list goes on and as I find new things i'll try to share in a post here.
Of course I will always make cards in addition to Scrapbook pages, Art Journal pages, Cards and Junk journals.
