Another Junk Journal Swap

Today Jackie and I are leaving for a mini vacation to the CK Convention in Washington.  But, before we go, I wanted to show you all this little project.

I made this for Daisy at Mini Album Scraps.
She wanted a general purpose book with her favorite colors, black, purple, pink and robin's egg blue.  She also loves the shabby chic type style, so this is what I came up with.  I used Pink Paisley papers and ephemera, Prima flowers,  and Recollections bling.
 Here is the view of the whole book.  I made 4 sections, and all sections have the same type of papers.  The dividers, pocket pages, and envelopes I made all have different papers, but the "pages" are all the same in every section.
 Divider number 1.
 Pocket page made out of a 12x12 paper.
 Plain heavy weight copy paper and flash cards with some ledger paper.
 I used 4 paper bags, and made pockets out of the bottoms, putting some journaling tags in every one.
 Map page and a list page.
 A brochure envelope, I added paper to the flap to pretty it up and put an index card in it.
 Home budgeting page and a lined page.
 A blank white card and a large tag with ribbon.
 A black card and more white paper.
 I made huge envelopes to tuck things in.  I don't know which line of paper it is!
I had bought some stuff to use for the book cover , and am sending what I didn't use  for Daisy to embellish as she wishes.

I sure hope she likes it!!!
Stay Crafty My Friends!

This is so cute. I'm getting ready to make my daughter one using "On The Boardwalk" paper collection from G45 as a main theme in the junk book, that is her favorite paper.
