Dressing Up The Pages! :) Part 12! Make a JUNK JOURNAL from an Old Book - The Series! Paper Outpost!
hello everybody this is pam at the

paper

outpost

and i think this is

part

12. i could be wrong i think it's 12. of how to

make

a

junk

journal

from an old

book

hey are you having fun is this a blast i'm totally having a blast creating this

book

with you guys step by step the slow crafting method we're just taking it easy one little step at a time okay so let's see where we are let's look at our little gator mouth and how it's growing okay so we are we are i would say like if i score it's still regular

book

size but if i let it go it opens up a little bit so we're we're starting to get into the the spread yeah it's got

book

spread and it's perfectly fine the way it is if you bound it now it would look like a normal

book

but we're not done yet and you can stop at any time of course at this point in the game at this juncture i usually like to go from the back to the front a quick flip through and decorate some of the things that i have left somewhat plain and the reason why i do that now is because i may decorate them and that may bulk things up even more so that will dictate or decide for me how much more bulky stuff i'm going to put in as i go okay so um well okay we'll we'll get to this i have the next thing on the list too so this thing is the process of we're going to open it up now we haven't done any uh front cover or anything like that we could totally uh do that and that's probably a good idea but i...

think we'll leave it a little bit later maybe we'll do the front and the back cover at one time okay so i have a little something here and i have this here and i could say do i want to add something to that and that's really pretty the way it is i'll probably maybe i'll add some stickles or something like that or a little bow or something maybe i'll just get a little bow or something so i may be dashing off and back and forth let me drag my little my little uh laces closer so they're easy to grab and let's see what we can put on that little one there what are you okay that is kind of a fluffy i don't know i just found it in my thing of laces maybe it may be too thick i don't know i could put it there too we'll use her somewhere in here i think you're very pretty um i don't know i'm feeling like i want a little bow what you got for a little bow pam keep looking okay here's a little piece of tattered material i think that might look nice okay i'm going to do the old double bunny ear and then cross them so we don't get too much bulk well that came a

part

oh the whole thing came a

part

all right we'll try again it's shorter now it's shorter now let's see if i can still do it might not be possible the ship may have sailed on this one we shall see all right there we go well we do have like a little bit of a a little bit of a bosque there which i think would be very cute just dangling off the edge all...
dressing up the pages part 12 make a junk journal from an old book   the series paper outpost
right so i think what i'm going to do is going to pull out my handy dandy tim holtz tiny attacher uh and i'm just gonna plop that right there all right gonna get some fabrifix swat along and it's gonna work as a little bit of a a little bit of a page tab it's going to stick out just a wee just to free bit but just something for interest just sort of fun and dandy all right let's look for um i want to put something on top of that now if you don't want to create a lot of bulk one of the nice things you could actually that piece that came off i could just come along and take a little piece of this and just glue it on top there that that might be what i'm going to do now you could put a little colored thing or something there too that would be cute here's a little piece of lace that's been coffee dyed i could just lay that across there for some visual interest maybe we'll do that maybe i'll cut a square out of this these little tiny tiny pieces come in so handy and you think oh no i don't need that little piece well you might you just might you know what i mean all right there we go i think that's going to be just fine for that little kitten the little kitten with the milk here we go putting some fabrifix glue clear silicone glue fabric fabric fabric

paper

paper

paper

and we have a little diamond shape there very good okay nothing too fat but we are moving on let me see there we go just a little something all right we carry on...
dressing up the pages part 12 make a junk journal from an old book   the series paper outpost
okay this guy he's got two decorations here some stitching i think he's good um we may come down and you know in the end and do some rubber stamping in that but this is not that this is decorating the tux and things i did do some drawing with the stickles there or that's actually probably nouveau nuvo drops and do i want to do something a little else here maybe maybe something in here maybe i want to put a little rubber stamp or a sticker um let me let me go over and see my stickers you got anything that would look really cute there pam oh probably you're gonna have to dig though this mountain of stickers over here that you again had to have all of them you know but they're so cute i can't help myself they are so cute now i don't want it to compete with a little picture okay that's kind of cute i like that okay we could do that all right now the big question is should we peel it off or should just we should just stick the whole thing down there's nothing to be embarrassed about if you stick the whole thing down and don't go through this ridiculous process of trying to peel off the sticker because you could be for here for an hour and a half and really have to ask yourself once i peel this off i probably need to use some scotch cream glue stick or just any glue stick to give it a little extra adherence because stickers are often like washi tape they're not super strong and they may peel off on your own so just give it give it a...
little extra just slap it down yeah be all right okay here we go get in the way of the words there oh i folded it oh lordy may oh now we got to fold it and go retreat okay boy when did life get so complicated come back here little sticker listen little stick if you're not going to play we're going to find another one okay no you played okay so there i just added just a little something you know you could you could keep going but i just want to go ahead and add a few little somethings here and there just to give it a little bit more intrigue um this i'll often do as i'm working my way through a

journal

if i see something that could maybe amplify the cuteness of the page like maybe this one not that dauber um might need a little bit more pink enhancement or or pinkish this is on an avocado dyed page and i thought maybe i just come along and have that page edges just pop a little bit more there i like that i don't know it's just kind of pretty okay there we go now really pretty right and do we want to put something here maybe maybe we'll put a nice subtle little uh rubber stamp there um what are you you're cute with the word believe that smile and believe that's nice i'm going to use my black soot ink and maybe i'll just that one's going that way so i'm going to do it the opposite way i want to oh no i'm going to put it straight on you know why because i have a line going this way this line is going this way so i think i...
want to do that because then that line goes that way so that's my thought process there in case anybody was curious not sure if it made any sense but there you go and she will be greeting somebody who comes along this is a little pocket working very nicely and this is a flip up i think i'm going to leave that fine because it has a lot going on it's been inked and stenciled bling is present we have a counterbalance up here you don't always have to have that but it's kind of nice this has a pretty side trim to it and there's some stenciling and stamping going on over here that's good here that's nice do we want maybe something a little surprise right there right i feel like we need a little surprise i think i'm going to get a little postage stamp and just pop it up there i just think that would be oh so fun to find this is a very old canadian postage stamp i think i had one of those the other day it looks really familiar who is that does anybody know who that is it's probably um i think i was saying it's captain cook we had a captain cook and uh what else was it was always like a couple guys that always came up all the time in the old canadian history which only canadians know nobody else knows it um we all grew up knowing american history but nobody ever knew canadian history yep that was the way it goes i don't know if it's still that way okay now this page is very glittery and pretty in the center but do i want to do...
something to the edges maybe i might take some walnut stain and just not necessary but maybe it's just a little bit of framing just a little here and there and i don't mind if i get it on the

pages

before and after because this is a bit of a grungy style

journal

and it can it can take it it'll be all right a little in the center always just kind of

make

s it look a little bit more i don't know treasure mappy old world-ish that type of thing and just maybe give it some framing on the corners there now we have that now we could put something here that might be nice don't want to overdo it because i want it to be what it is but maybe a little something i don't know let me go look um let me look at my what have i got i've got words maybe we could use some words i don't know notes oh that looks kind of cool i like that i think i got this from nick the

book

book

smith i'm just that's just ringing a bell um so yeah she has some some really pretty digi kits and stuff to look at too so check those out if you haven't checked them out um there we go i'm gonna just stick that there it's neutral it's playing on the neutral thing and uh yeah i think i'm gonna roll with it okay dokey here we go i'm just gonna and i'm gonna kind of half hang it off the edge i think that's that's very mixed media of me to do that yep i don't know what something hanging off the edge is a thing yeah it's a thing okay i'm just...
going to let that page rest it's okay to have this has some eye candy on it and and uh functionality to it but i think with the next page maybe i'll do a little bit more rest um and a nice thing i guess i'm going to be stamping because that's what i'm doing um okay i've got some flowers here little peg stamp a little cluster of uh i don't know like a little leaf cluster i think let's try we're just going to do some uh maybe

make

a little page trim here and i'm doing this apparently in walnut stain i was actually headed for the black but i picked up the wrong one so it's all good it's all good now what you can do with these which is really cute if you haven't done this yet this is going to be a lot of fun you take this and now you go in a different color like maybe i'll go in pink and you kind of just like miss the first one you stagger them just a little bit they can overlap it's really cute when they do and you build yourself this really cute little page trim page border uh something very special and these are these are fun to

make

so if you've never done these i highly recommend it okay now let's go for the black and i'll show you what it looks like up close because i feel like you're sort of far away oh that's a little close isn't it back up okay there you are okay oh here we go uh okay so we're making almost like a am i in the brown i'm in the brown again what what up what up sista...
go ahead and grab the black this is called black soot and now i will grab it this was what i planned originally and well i'll just put some random ones in here they don't they don't really have to follow any rhyme or reason i'm just filling in the holes they don't have to be exactly the same number a

part

like if you put two together it's okay you don't put a whole bunch for a while it's okay yeah you can do that because it's your

journal

yeah there we go and um so i think that's really effective and it's just a hoot of fun okay so here here it is there it is yeah something very simple very easy but i think very effective um i think the fun thing about a mount no i don't want to i don't want to

make

it sound like there's any rules there's no really there's no real way to correctly do it you just do it however your heart sings um maybe i want to do something oh you might come in handy here oh i do i would like to do that so this is just some uh i want to say like a chiffon or something that i sewed together with some pink string and i think he finally found his home he's been flopping around in my in my drawer for a long time and now today is his day here we go i'm gonna put you down so only a little bit sticks out we don't like like all the heavens to stick out we just want a little okay there we go we don't want to fatten up too much it's okay if we fatten up a little that's what we tell...
ourselves like being at the dinner table you know what i mean okay here we go so that's cute right definitely adding some bulk with that baby now um okay some neutral

pages

now um some people like to have the holes in the college rule some people don't like to have the holes in the college rule if you choose if you say hey i don't like the holes in the college rule you have options always you have lots of options um i've got punched outs and i've got clusters so this is where we can go plug holes if you want to so i'm going to grab my punched outs these i just sat there for hours on different days and i punched that's all i did was i punched so you can take circles or little tree leafy things and i'm going to put something here you can do that if you want to ink them you can ink them or you can put leaf shapes or butterfly shapes or anything you like there totally fine you can also um cover those with like corner pockets and stuff like that so now remember you're gonna have a little sticky side there because of that so maybe you want to do something different on that side or you could match it whatever you like i have this little one that looks like a stamp let me look a little deeper see what i find um okay that's kind of cute okay let's try inking you up we'll ink you up with the pink because you've got the pink line there we'll play off of that and then you just come along and you stick it down it's as easy as...
that it really is it's easy and you can even go over the edge of it that's okay that's okay yeah that's like a that's a look it's a thing um you know i'm not gonna do it this time though yeah all right but you can i just wanted you to know that you could okay

make

sure you guys are all right all right now we've got these guys now what i would do with this guy to give him a little amperoni he needs something you know what i mean i'm feeling like something somewhere somebody said he needs a little something all right i'm looking what's this how about that it's kind of nice all right we'll just stick you there but maybe

make

you pink too and these are the little little um artsy touches that uh this this is like jewelry um or the candy or the icing you know what i mean you're just having fun doing little goofy things maybe that's a tree maybe it became a tree at some point you know who knows it's a cute little thing yeah all right there's not much to it but hey it was fun and now this little guy he's very pretty he has a different feel from the other

paper

s very velvety and creamy but i think what i might like to do is brown up his edges just a little bit because he's going to pop really nicely against the page next to him so sometimes your center signature page if it's a special page that you've chosen you might want to orient it a different way like this one is long while the rest are wide but...
you don't have to and you don't even have to have a special center page that's not an absolute but it's kind of a fun little surprise like oh i'm in the center and what does it reveal what does it reveal okay now um let's see maybe find some let me find my drawer of things you know the things i'm talking about i mean i like doing that lately let me do that again i'm just gonna grab some really cute buttons and they can they can be the things that hang out the bottom i think that would be fun all right let me just find some cuties and you could actually put several buttons on each little dangle you could you know um yeah i'm just going to grab a few i'm over in my button drawer that's where i am um i'm coming back yeah no i'll just be a minute i gotta find the right one you know what i mean okay sometimes okay i got this little collection just pretty little button some metal one pearl some are old maybe some are newer but they're definitely all in i say vintage or unique in some way shape or form okay so i did this on the last

journal

i mean i thought it was really fun so what i did was i took the long string of the inner tails and right close to the base maybe maybe an inch down i did a little tie i tied a knot yeah and then that gave me two of these and with that i could do something cool like thread one of these if you have these neat uh needles if you have these buttons with a shank you can tie them on like that very...
easily okay and then that's going to be below the

book

which i think is kind of cool or it could be above the

book

um depending on you know how where you want this little thing to to dangle or you could use a flat metal charm to to nest inside your

book

but i've got some really cool buttons and i want to use them so there you go i'm using my buttons um maybe you want to remember to do the backs of that too there we go we're just doing a little decorating yeah okay we have something here okay now over here i'm gonna put a faux i think this is like a scrabble thing or something um it's thin it's not fat okay it's just like a it's an art it's for arts and crafts arts and crafts let me now i'm now i'm 10 years old i'm going to my arts and crafts class uh in the summer okay i'm going to i'm going to put it on angle there we go there we are okay just gonna put that there and going okay now we probably want to put something here you're kind of cute what are you okay here's the long guy i mean they really don't have to have any specific rhyme or reason that you can just like the piece and want to put it down maybe it's just a torn

book

page or a little picture from a magazine or you know something like that i mean i just i don't know i just think that looks cute i think you're gonna look cuter like that okay so let's go ahead and pop him down oh oh okay yeah okay got him they like to run away...
sometimes it's true it's true there's some glue on that page i can see it so yeah you gotta be mindful of the the glue bleed that might come through just roll it around and roll it off your page and all is well okay um now we're just cruising something here maybe yes i think something and what something like that now if i ink you up you will look very nice you will be striking you look nice over here too well let's just see what you look like this is a punch out yeah and these things are relatively flat they don't cause a lot of problem now i could since i'm here and this often happens i plan on doing one thing and i do another yeah that happens all the time um i punched a uh field guide out with a big i think it might be a three let me look how wide it's a three inch circle punch okay and uh just punched um field guide so you get some really cute little birds yeah i'm gonna put you don't move it maybe like that that's kind of pretty all right so these are just visual interests they don't really serve a purpose you can turn them into pockets and tucks but i'm i don't want to bulk up too much because we're starting to get chubby it happens fast i know it's just just like real life right um but there i think that would be very pretty come here little guy and there's still lots of writing room and you could technically write right over these as well maybe sparing the little bird but you know what i mean it's...
not it's all right okay there we go um yeah i found some nice field guides i was uh in my favorite thrift store today and i found some i was like oh i love these yep they came home with me it's true it happened it did yep and uh but some you gotta look at the you gotta look at your i think i wanna run around with those with some stabilo um you got to look at your pictures in the field guide because some field guides i mean it all depends what you want to like if you want written words about birds and animals and that's awesome because you can do a lot of fun stuff at that but if you want visual images check your field guide first before purchase if it's possible i know it's a little harder online but if you can get out to the thrift stores and at least see which ones have good pictureage then that can that can really get you started down the happy lane and i want you guys to have fun whoops yeah now you have to be like sorta close but it doesn't have to be like exact thankfully with the beloved stabilo pencil um looking for my squirty bottle and it is gone how can you be gone in your giant bottle oh oh no it you know what it was right where it was supposed to be and there i was last place looking for it right yeah there's a actually put it away i put it away yeah okay and this this just emphasizes it up just a little bit more kind of smudgy smear smear smudge yeah there we go all right now we get a little more i'll do this guy yeah sometimes it...
comes out more intense and other times not so much it just depends yeah but it's really kind of cool effect i really like that i really like that uh pencil it's an awesome pencil it's the if you haven't seen me or heard me talk about it it's the aquarelle stabilo you see that aquarelles what was that the echo rails to billow 8046 it's like a dissolvable almost like a watercolor pencil but it's just right okay here's what made me think i want to decorate more okay so let's decorate that i'm looking over here okay what we got this nice guy yeah you could do something there i would put you there me store heartthrob okay here we a go what is going on there's like stuff falling okay it's just wires and stuff that are falling off because i unplugged my computer it's all fine there there's nothing going on no there's no ghosts in the room it's all good okay let me just ink you up a little bit more all right okay oh maybe we can have him sit on the jar nope that won't work okay i'll just put you like that that's kind of cute all right let's put you down well we can pop this piece out here sometimes these have extra little pieces that need to be removed there's a little tiny one right there see that can you see that probably not all right i'll just remove it i should have probably left it okay there we go okay i've got the neighbor somebody's cutting the grass there we go so he's only...
going to be glued on the bottom half and you can layer up and and put material or fabric or a cheesecloth which would look very cute i think i'm going to draw a little something on this mason jar punch i'm just going to maybe emphasize the thread so it would be nice if i could go straight no it's not going to happen there some kind of pill bottle how about that all right here we go let's use the scotch grate glue stick for that here we go here we go and just pop you there yeah that's a good start okay maybe he looks like maybe i kind of want to do something in that corner let me look in the land of clusters just some pre-made clusters i have here oh yeah it's kind of pretty uh you know and there's really no right or wrong way to do this you just try things on for size now ready to have words down there so i want to try something different so here's ledger and a little bit of material that's kind of nice nice contrast with that or we have a little a little that's pretty too just a little this is actually a page tab it made a little page tab on that could you be a page tab on both sides i'm going to cover my bird you can cover the bird too it's okay you could also do the page tab at the top and wild and crazy i don't know not sold see this is where you're going to try things on for size that's different i like that there we go i think we found the happy place yeah but first i definitely want to ink these edges because...
to me they just seem like a little stark a little stark so we're going to do a little inking okay that's good and now where'd that piece go here yeah i think that's gonna be very pretty all right here we go so as you can see this is how it happens this is how things get mushroomed up very quickly when you're making a

junk

jungle and i like to have some things overhang a little bit see that so when you close the

book

you've got these little feathery bits that are sticking out it's like oh what is that i wonder what that is when i get to it it will reveal itself that's what happens i might leave this just like as a rest uh eye rest page oh that's where i just love that i almost don't want to do anything to that because it's just so pretty and neutral yeah if i if i do anything here it'll take away from that i'm going to leave that i just love that okay the border very nice very functional maybe we need a little something this might okay so apparently maybe maybe this is a good time for a quote i've learned that being too quick to judge someone can deprive you of a great encounter and the possibility of a wonderful long-term relationship well there you go that person learned a good lesson what's this one i learned that if your mother made pimento cheese with miracle whip you you don't like it when it's made with mayonnaise no i can i i do like miracle whip better than mayonnaise myself so i'm going to go...
with that one yeah so you just find something fun for yourself the person was 52 who came up with that one these little little rules of life you know they're so cute they're just so cute and you can put these on in so many ways um now notice and this there's no rhyme or reason to this but i'm just pointing it out for the sake of it that this is about the same width as that so if i put it down here there would be a nice counter balance but you don't have to have counterbalance no no you could you could come and do it i think i'm actually going to put it on its side because i just think it creates a little bit more visual interest and it kind of brings the person into the page and then they can write all their lovely stories here and you can put more on here but i think i'm just going to let that rest okay and we have here we have this page which it has a wonderful feel to it i wish you could feel it it's a special writing

paper

um this one is a little flip envelope which i i do like that and the bird against the white i think shows well i'm not going to overdo that this is very nice i could totally overdo that let me overdo it a little um okay let me see what i got so little trims little trims hello little trims that would be pretty what's this that'd be very nice on there but maybe white would be better oh what's this little tufta roo of something nobody knows it's just a little oddball i like that let's see be a little...
surprised like how are you coming along what's that oh look at that yeah i think maybe that's what i'll do i'm going to add this here okay now somebody asked me when you're gluing down lace it comes through yes you're right it does and what do you do about it you kind of have to just wait you put it down okay you got to look at what's the right side these are kind of tricky sometimes i like it to overhang a little so we're overhanging a little so totally missed it there you see that it's okay so what's going to happen when i turn the page everything's going to glue together so oh i don't want you touching that nope okay i'm going to try and remove some of this i'm coming with the finger removal technique and you know what now i think i'm going to be very bold and i'm just going to put that there i just i don't know i feel like it needs that so i'm just layering this up as i go for no

part

icular reason other than it just feels good and i want i want somebody to have something to feel when they go through the

book

when they they have a a tactile experience maybe this only lives in my mind but i want them to have a tactile experience as they journey through the

book

it's visual it's uh touch it's smell there's a

paper

smell um there's a glueish kind of smell most of the glue smell evaporates but there is essence of glue you know you know what i mean and so it's very stationary in its...
nature yeah i think that's pretty just enough little just a little something and you could actually just glue the top and use this as a flip and that would have given them that writing space too but no i stole it from them yep gone all right pretty

book

page i think i'm gonna leave that blank that's just nice that's kind of cool we'd like to put something there that would i just feel like i want to put a big rubber stamp there let me do that all right i'm over here and i'm i'm looking in my rubber stamp land of which there is a lot here's this bird i feel like i've used this one recently but we'll use it again um there we go and let's just have a stamp you right here there i don't know something about rubber stamping on written words which i think is it's just lovely now you could come and um color that in as well which would be very pretty you could water color it or use a marker or something like that but i think i'm just going to leave it as is i think it's just pretty all right here this is a pretty page we have this so i'm not trying to fill in every empty page i'm just going through and decorating the things we have see i'm telling you guys that because i'm trying to remind myself to do that okay this is a wrap around we're going to leave that so we do have lots of uh blank writing

pages

often i get accused of not leaving enough writing

pages

here as you can see there is a lot of writing...

pages

see it it does exist there that's there that's cute it has that on the back you are good maybe something to counter balance here maybe yeah i could see it maybe i'm going to oh that would be nice that's very fancy why don't we do that we could turn that into a little oh it's got that other that's even prettier now which i do this side well that's how it's very pretty though but like this side i think it's what it's meant to be this was what its origin came from yes it was this one like that no i think it was definitely like that okay so i'm going to turn this into a upper corner tuck by doing the l-shaped glue maneuver it's very fancy it's like a triple lutz no it's not fancy it's easy anybody can do it you too i'm sure you've done it a million times already and if you haven't what are you waiting for it's it's very easy okay there we go so what does that do that allows me to put something else under there i'm gonna let this dry first though before i go causing

make

up mayhem okay it's a like a mesh on the back so it might take a second to grab but it will grab we'll come back to it later some old

book

page very neat oh here we have our triple side tuck and i think that's got enough decoration on it okay blank page which i think is okay after a page with heavy decoration if you're unsure you can always come in oh with a butterfly you know you can never go wrong with...
the butterfly maybe the bubble fly here maybe there there there there oh that's nice how about there here okay you have so many choices you really do and it's kind of nice to rotate around the world when you're doing these okay for this one instead of futzing with it for an hour i'm just going to glue the whole thing down because i think it's going to we all get to the same place you know what i mean okay we've got a bunch of sideways all right i changed my mind there we go all right we have that i got to put a word under it i don't know it just says word please word word word all right coming um i have like a million words why do i never use them i always grab the same words how about beauty i know i grab i grab these same words all the time um i really like them um okay let's try this oh i hope i didn't smudge it not bad not bad at all i think that's kind of cool um sometimes a word a bird a butterfly a number a little piece of material just something to set it off can can add worlds of fun worlds i tell you worlds very cool okay we have a couple of these he's covered so we only need something on this side let me try to find something different i'm going to look in my my little basket of lace of which i have thrown everything together in one thing i have all my likes together oh my god it's a big box all right should i put something red and be bold what do you think well that's not going to be well let's see...
it's tech no it's not covered there that's all right though what if we just what if we just did that on top we could do that we could also come down the side that would look really cute but you you're a little fatter what have you got to say for yourself i'm a little fatter yes you are you are okay that's kind of a pretty ribbon i like that all right we're gonna use you i think it must be a christmas ribbon or something but i think you're gonna perfectly cover those holes and it grounds the page yeah okay yep there we go all right now we're just gonna maybe run that over the glue stick glue stick will handle um light fabric projects this glue stick will handle light fabric um not all glue sticks well some glue sticks are useless have you have you encountered the useless glue stick yet you want to counter the useless glue stick hop on down to your dollar tree and buy the jot brand yeah no luck with that baby boy at least over here i didn't have luck with it so that's when i swore to myself when i find a good glue stick i will capture it and uh i will use it forever so apparently that's what i'm doing and that's very nice okay okay so we have this little guy and i i don't think i i don't think i want to decorate him i think i'm going to leave him as is hello dear i'm recording i was just called honey mouse yeah in public you just called me honey mouse and i'm recording now the whole world knows what you...
call me thanks okay all right so over at the second signature look at that now we get to put on another button oh boy this is good all right so here we go let's grab our tails and we're going to use this a pretty little pearl button it's a very old shank style button and sometimes you we don't know what to do with those buttons in

junk

journal

world but here is here's one thing that you can do i guess i could just tell you you don't really need the first knot if you do this but yeah i think i'm gonna do the the old the way i showed you before just works out better for some reason so tie a knot wherever you want the button to live my button's going to live about maybe an inch down if i get it right all right there we go how long are you now it's going to be a little different like little different lengths are okay though it's kind of um a little of this little of that you know it's kind of a an eclectic collection of pack rat items in this

book

which is so much fun okay here we go got one i should probably do it the other way left over right right over left is going to

make

a nice tight knot if i would have said it the other way i could have had a nice rhyme but no no no okay so we have this little guy and these you don't have to i mean people this is very nostalgic actually a lot of people it reminds them of school you know and there's nothing wrong with that but maybe i'm just going to come in here with a cluster there...
we go a little cluster right there that looks really nice it has some pop and i think it's going to do our bidding it's going to do our bidding okay like that oh my goodness sorry for the lawnmower but yeah he's over there blowing away mo mo mo yep that's okay i'm sure he's got to get it done yeah like that and just a little hang over the edge not mandatory just optional all right a little torn piece here you can just tear those off you don't have to the

pages

don't have to be perfect i think there's character in the torn page um totally leave it up to you i might do the back of what's that oh look i found the kato fancy town so just punched out some hearts out of

book

page a little ink and stickles at some point in time uh so it's ready to go especially with the stickles it's great to bulk

make

those things because they're dry and ready to use when you're ready to go so that does speed things up if you have a little stash of pre-made if you don't have a stash of pre-made you can

make

as you go slows your process down a little bit but then you know you're making as you go that's that's the way it goes i feel like i want a stencil now i haven't stenciled in a bit so i'm over here over here yeah here we go all right let me get my little paddle brush it's probably enough on here pink worn lipstick same paddle brush i know i'm just going to try and put some different colors on here maybe some...
pink on this side it kind of comes pinky brown because i end up mixing everything together all right so that's pink and we have oh there's the green right there right where i left it this is peeled paint okay here we go rubbing it in there now we have the coming down coming down the mountain here now you don't have to do the whole stencil you can do

part

ial stencil little stencil big stencil you name it you go as far or as big or as little as you want but it is a very nice way to break up a white page it just gives you some prettiness it adds no bulk it's awesome and uh that you can certainly keep going and do fun things so we'll call that one done this is a nice rest page oh i love that this is nice we're not doing any more here we could but we're not um i don't want to over bulk you you know what i mean i mean i can really go crazy um but uh i don't want you you know riding home saying no she took us down a dark path i was doing fine next thing you know the thing was so full i couldn't open it um it's not that bad it's okay oh that's pretty i do i want something here but this not this what what you gotta go oh that's kind of cool this is looks like a piece from the

book

doesn't it like

part

of the spine or something i don't know i'm gonna just use a piece of it definitely an old

book

piece that's kind of cool i'm gonna just put that there all right once you just become

part

of the

book

see from...
whence you came there you go you piece of

book

i think it's

part

of a spine that's what it feels like all right there we go what are you you want to be on there too a little rose yeah i might need a little more action there i had this rose sitting here this is a reproduction of a victorian die cut these are very beautiful these were gifted to me thank you and let me go ahead and get this rose out let's see we'll just take you out here no you don't need all your leafy friends you and your leafy friends like you and your little dog that would be me yes you and your little dog yes what about with me and my little dog we're a team we do everything together we're a set and he's such a good little boy i just i don't know he just gets my heart i don't know what can i say you know i'm like every other dog lover okay oh that looks pretty i like that yeah okay we're gonna put that down let me get now when you have delicate little pieces like that it is actually i find it easier to work with a very thin stream of the fabrifix as opposed to running it over the glue stick because it might tear and then you can still repair it but then you know it's one more thing to do which is sometimes still fun but there you go okay but the green that was very nice okay now we're rolling now we're rolling what is it oh this is a pretty uh double belly band and we have decoration okay that's plenty and then we have the

pages

that stick...
together which we have to deal with because an old decorator here keeps going you know how far away from the end i'm like taking you for a long ride today aren't i i'm not letting you out of here no you gotta you gotta stay for the whole time you can't go yeah i'll cancel all your appointments and watch me glue

paper

well since i have all that goo up there i'm gonna cover it up yeah look what we made do you remember making these were you around in those days that's pretty we could put that there that would be very nice let's do that so these are just some fun embellishments that i little pre-made that i had just sitting there and i made them almost all of them with you i mean pretty much

make

everything with you guys now i mean i do a little off-site too but uh there we go that's very nice yes okay yeah all right now oh that's very pretty look at this little guy is that one thing or two i think it's one that's really pretty oh that that might be nice like right there oh that's really pretty boy i did good on that day look at that let me put that right there all right i really like that a lot that's a pretty piece see you can you can just stick something on a page three quarters of the way down and to call it a day you can totally do that let me just ink it up a little bit on this side and if you want to do some kind of finishing here you can come along and since this

book

has red tones um maybe i'm just going to a...
little red border there that would be just adorbs so this is a little red rickrack i don't normally work with red but every once in a while there you go she's into the reds and it's pretty it actually is very uh pretty color and it's um i guess it's the other neutral well they used to say that i don't know if they say that anymore but who who else likes red anybody any we have any red aficionados out there do you have a lot of red in your wardrobe it's a very um beautiful color there that looks nice right lots of space to write oh and here's the flip up envelope should we put a surprise under it why don't we why don't we okay let's look around so now it's very important that sometimes you go to different places or things that you haven't yet explored let's see you you wouldn't be expecting you there i didn't cut you out very well if i can round up a little bit no i don't do ovals very well that's disaster hmm maybe just maybe we're not going to use you because i'm not very good at ovals could you put a little dictionary page there what are you oh it's like a little tie it looks like something blair which project left behind it will stick you on the edge of a page that might be kind of cool yeah sometimes you can just grab little pieces of something and and glue them down no rhyme or reason you just do it there we go yeah blair witch that that's what it reminds me of you know those i...
don't know those weird little twig things that um i want to put something there what was going to be i could put a coin oh i circle punched these out so these are better oh that's kind of cool that's neat all right let's do that yeah i think that's it you could put a palm you could put another pocket you could do a million things under here but i just want to keep it relatively flat but eye appealing interesting something fun for you to tell the grandkids about okay coin

book

s and stamp
