Vintage Seamstress Junk Journal

I was approached by Yvonne at ScreechOwlStudio on Etsy to do a Design Team (DT) project a few weeks back.  I'm so excited to share the completed project with you.  I used Yvonne's digital kit called "Vintage Seamstress" and the add-on kit that goes with the kit.  It's such a beautiful kit with lots of ephemera!  Even so, I got carried away and the Vintage Junk Journal I created a huge, chunky Journal.

Front cover

This journal measures 7 3/4" tall x 5 5/8" wide and the spine is 2 1/2"  The journal has 4 signatures and 115+ pages, counting fronts and backs of pages.

Besides the digital kit from Screech Owl Studio, I was also used Graphic 45's A Ladies Diary papers and some other sewing-themed items I had in my stash.

Spine (without charm dangle)

The journal was made from a food box which I covered with papers from Graphic 45.  I, then, wrapped the journal in lace.  Tyvek was used to reenforce the spine.

Back cover


I created 3 small booklets which now sit in fabric's pockets and provide more journaling space.

IF you'd like to see more of this journal, please go to my YouTube Channel, here.

This Journal has already sold.

My Etsy Shop is PorchSwingDesigns.  You can find it here.
