Christmas List Junk Journal by Marina Wilson

Monique Mini Albums 2 Comments

Good morning, everyone!  Man…Christmas is screaming towards us at the speed of light, isn’t it?  Well, don’t fret…I have some inspiration for you today to help relax you 😉  Design team member, Marina Wilson, created this beautiful Christmas junk journal for us all to drool over:

Marina used Tim Holtz’s “Hanging Sign” die to create the sentiment on the cover, and added some bronze cable chain (#CH926-B) from ButterBeeScraps to hang her sign from 🙂  On the bottom half of her cover, Marina added a pretty red lace trim with a small cluster of flowers and doilies.  I love the look of the different materials together in this flower cluster…it adds so much yummy texture to the project.  In addition to a medium sized doily, Marina combined a metal flower (#025-C) and leaf (#852-B) with a couple of paper ones from her stash.  Finally, Marina added a bronze drawer pull (#HD624-B) to the right edge of the cover to create a closure.

Marina created 3 signatures for her journal, and added a large red eyelet and charm to the spine of her journal:

She attached several bits, pieces and beads to her charm.  You can see a few bronze charms from her stash, tassel, Tim Holtz key, beads (#BDSTR-BR) and a miniature bronze bell.

Here’s a quick look at one of the pages inside her journal:

…and the beauty doesn’t stop there.  Here’s a look at another page in Marina’s journal:

That’s about all I can show you here, but you can view a complete flip-through of Marina’s journal over on her YouTube channel 🙂  Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by in this very busy time of year!  I hope you enjoyed the project and it inspires you to spend a little well-deserved time in your creative space.  Cheers!

  1. You gave me an idea with this junk journal, Marina. I have a Christmas mini album that I made several years ago. I actually use it! I keep my favorite pictures it it and cards that are special to me. I added some pages to it a couple of years ago. It’s a wonderful book for me. I also use it as one of my decorations, leaving it out on a table for me to refer to. After seeing this one you made, I am now going to just add “junk” to mine wherever in my book……love this idea!
