Chunky Monkey Recycled Part 2...."Blue"

Hello Friends!
I just finished another junk journal....this one is for ....ME!  Yes, I took the other half of the huge, chunky monkey one I made and now...here it "part 2" or as I call it "Blue"!  The first Chunky Monkey one, was just to.. chunky and thick and hard to write in and interact with, so I took it apart, made 2 journals with 3 signatures each! Leaving 1/2 inch between each signature as I sewed it to the spine helped alot in making the journal lay flatter so that it is easier to write in.



It is also interactive...lots of fun "hiding places" and neat little spots for journaling. I have put all memories of some kind/time in my life in this one.

I have posted a video on You Tube about it...about 15 minutes long and just about the page ideas so you can get some ideas for your own journals. I don't know/remember brand names, where I got what etc. Just...lots of ideas to share! I hope you enjoy it and leave me a "thumbs up"!

Thanks for stopping by and...keep on preserving those memories!

Flip Through of Junk Journal for Ashleigh


 I just finished a junk journal for my 10 year old grand daughter. I am trying to get her to document some of her memories and so far, she hasn't really been interested. So.. I made this one in a fashion that is easier...she doesn't have to write, although there is space to write, but she can just put things in pockets or washi tape them to the page etc. No writing involved! Hopefully when she sees this one, she will get the point and start collecting!

 I just folded 8.5"x11 inch papers in half to make the signatures...there are 3 in the book. I used cereal box for the book and regular card stock to cover it.

 I can't for the life of me figure out why when I take pictures of things...they always come out yellowed. I have tried so many ways and lighting effects, but still... always this yellow cast.  I did download a YouTube video of it, and that can't out great! So...scroll to the bottom here and you can see that.  These are just a few pages in the book... this one with a collection baggie  and flip out pages........
 And this one with a McDonald's bag when Minions were "out"....made pocket page with it!

So check out the video of this junk journal...good color and I only talked about how I made the pages and things I used and didn't chatter on about brand names or where I got what from etc. Just lots of page ideas and low cost...this is just stuff I found around the house with some old scrapbook stuff left over from my scrapbook days 15 years ago! But you can do the same. I also show you about keeping mementos in the junk journals... check it out! Give me a thumbs up if you like and subscribe if you already haven't as I have 4 more of these to show you!




Thanks for stopping by and...keep on preserving those memories!
