poppystamps Basic Junk Journal Set…

Hi everyone!  I know!  I know!  You came expecting Easter!  I’ve been thinking about this die set and what I would make with it….then I walked by this little stack of Santas that I’d printed before Christmas and didn’t use and thought one would be adorable with the Journal set!

So I die cut the journal in watercolor paper and did some ink smooshing with Distress Ink Gathered Twigs ink refill and water. I didn’t wait for it to dry on it’s own.  I dried it with the heat tool.

Here’s a video of it… it might be low resolution at first until it completely downloads…even though it’s only 27 seconds!  See it HERE on Instagram…

I had some scraps/strips that I kept of plaid from the Memory Box Jolly Christmas 6×6 pad and I love how they worked out on the front and on the inside!

You can tell what the size of this folder is because there’s a gift card inside.

You could stamp or write in permanent ink on the mirror gold little labels.

the back….

And now I’m thinking what a cute tag this would make on an Easter basket!  There’s several dies in the set I didn’t even use!

Linking to some challenges…

Peace on Earth Christmas – anything goes Christmas

The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge – anything goes Christmas

AAA Cards – inspired by a song….Up on the House Top!

I’ll link up what I used below.

  1. I love the look of this and it’s ideal as a gift card holder. There are a lot of good parts to this die set (yes, you made me look). I should have bought some Easter dies because I don’t even feel like making Easter cards with what I have. I’ve been making Christmas cards most recently, too.

  2. Beautiful gift card holder, love the Santa he is so jolly, Thank you for sharing with us at Holly and Ivy Challenge. Anita DT

  3. I’ve not come across the song before, but your Santa image is great. I look forward to seeing a clean and simple entry when you play with us again at AAA Cards. Thanks for joining in our challenge 🙂

  4. Great junk journal Pam – so many lovely details! Thanks for joining us at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge! Hope to see you in the gallery again soon!
    Hugs, Kate
