Meandering and Junk Journalling



Hope you've got back into the swing of things after all the festivities and are enjoying your weekend.
I've been messing about with the new collections by Marion Smith, now in at Jones Crafts Wholesalers and retailers here in the UK,  and have two new book designs to share with you.  The first is a Meander Album made with Mad Tea Party papers by Marion Smith.  These papers are truly adorable and were lovely to work with.  I used one of each of the papers in the collection for the main pages and then matched up some 6 x 6 G45 Secret Garden solids for the tags and photo mats.  They all worked really well together.  To see the whole album just click the video link below.
.

If you' like to make the album its available as an on line workshop.  Click here to go over to our blogshop

My second book is more of a Junque Journal, albeit a very pretty one, and was made from a few pieces of kraft card and an eclectic mix of Nirvana and Garment District papers. Click below to see the journal in full  


Both books are January Jones Crafts Design team projects. Catch up with them on their Facebook page by clicking here.

Well that's all from me for today. Off to cook the lunch so thanks for calling by, enjoy the rest of your Sunday,  and look forward to catching up with you again shortly :-) C

  2. Good evening Clare. I just love your two albums and have to admit that I have never heard of the term Junque Journal. I have to agree with Sieglinde above the Alice papers are lovely and I too would never say No to watching one of your terrific tutorials. Thank you for sharing these fab albums with us and I hope your enjoy the rest of your evening.
