I have been having so much fun with the Junk Journal -Newbie/Mini swap @cmalaina is hosting, I don’t wanna stop… Lol

Special thanks to @cmalaina for the fun swap and inspiration!

What is a junk journal?:

A junk journal is a journal that is created using scraps from scrapbooking papers, found papers, playing cards, book pages, note pad papers....etc. and bonded into a ‘book’.

• There is no minimum rating requirement, I only ask that you have no recent, unexplained 1’s, or 3’s. People with recent 1s and 3s or a history of problem swapping may be banned before assigning partners. This is in good faith that you will send promptly and send something made with thought and care. Please do not flake on your partner. I'm really hoping I don't have to angel this swap but I am more than happy to do so after you have rated your partner a 1. Those who flake will be banned permanently from future swaps I host!

• Please have a well filled out profile. There should be enough Info to scroll through. I will be checking profiles and removing any one who seems questionable. If you do not have a rating history make sure you have a well filled out profile.

• Please make sure sturdy paper is used for the front and back cover and that covers are decorated.

• Pockets and tuck spaces, pocket pages, fold outs, fold ups, etc are great ideas you may choose to include. Personally, I love making pockets, so there’s room to hide lots of goodies.

• Bind with sewing, glue, rings, hole-punch or whatever method you prefer.

• Size of the journal, minimum- 4x6 and maximum size- sender’s choice.

• Please include 12+ pages, you can add more if you like.

• Theme is Senders Choice, but please take your partners profile info into account and avoid sending things they dislike.

You can use:

• Cardstock

• Printables

• large or small memo sheets

• any size of envelopes

• cards or postcards

• bingo cards

• wrapping paper

• sheets from stationary sets

• cellophane bags

• paper bags

• menus

• velum

• fabric

• stickers (flakes or sheets)

• fabric

• pressed flowers

• ric rac

• whatever :)

• (Please be mindful or requests on partners profile before coating anything in glitter. Some people love it, some people hate it Lol)

If you’d like to swap ideas and inspiration feel free to do so in the comments, also feel free to post any questions you may have. Be kind and communicate with your partner. Send something you would want to receive. Feel free to message me with any questions or concerns.

Hello all! Sorry to mess with dates, but received a message requesting I extend ship by date to the 4th, in case people are unable to send midweek and need time to go in to the post office, I agreed to extend date to the 4th of April. Thank you all for your understanding.
