Junk journal sample for Studio Light

I made a little junk journal with pockets and tags, and a ribbon closure.
I did a little flip-through on YouTube:

And a load of close-up views:
Vellum window which I've stamped
The back

Opened flat, so you can see the stitching

The stitching inside the book

Opening the cover, with pockets on the left, and a little belly band

Close-up of the first page: collaged paper, stamps, watercolour

The second page, more torn paper

Tiny faux envelopes

With both tags taken out of the pockets

I've used some Tim Holtz Photobooth photos, and little touches of lace. The ribbon is seam binding, sprayed with water, crumpled up and allowed to dry naturally, to retain those crumples.

The actual book part is a simple 5-hole pamphlet stitch (tons of tutorials on youtube, if you want to try this).


  1. Fabulous post Susie. Wish I had your computer skills as well as your crafty ones.

    1. Thanks so much Alison! I used to do blog designs - including Kate's Kathryn Wheel. Good fun but very hard on the eyes, lol.

  2. This is gorgeous, Susie. So much interest and lots of detail. Beautiful work.
