Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog!
Today I’m bringing you a rather thick junk journal I created using the papers, frames, tag, and resin pieces that came in this month’s scrapbooking kit.
I was inspired by Wendy’s Journal Adventure’s “The Caring Gardner Botanical Journal.” I don’t even know what I was looking for when I came across the video, but I loved how the first and last signatures were dedicated to pockets and flip-outs with the middle signatures dedicated to the pages to write on; I had always seen journals with the pocket and flip-out pages intermingled with the writing pages. I also loved the corrugated cardboard she used on the inside covers, which reminded me I had some KaiserCraft Corrugated Sheets from the October 2019 Tres Jolie Scrapbooking Kit. Check out a few photos, found below the flip-through video, to see how some of the pages are laid out.

Look at all those pages to write on!

A pocket page & some of the lighter paper from the kit that can be used for journaling.
I hope you enjoyed this junk journal and that it gave you some ideas of what can be done with this month’s kit!
