just enough stuff... to *start* your own funky fab JUNQUE JOURNAL! (please note that there are NO INSTRUCTIONS included! you'll need to add binding supplies, skills, and imagination!)
you will receive ONE 8.5 x 11" notebook-ready plastic page protector sleeve filled with a mix of old stuff, new stuff, big stuff, little stuff, pretty stuff and weird stuff! this is definitely not EVERYTHING you'll need to make a junk journal, but it should be enough to inspire and get you started!
each pack contains a 10 x 13" envelope to use as a base for your journal, plus fabric swatches, bits of lace, buttons, slide mounts, cancelled postage stamps, tickets, postcards, and smaller envelopes to embellish. there's also a variety of paper and assorted goodies that don't fit in to any particular category. i've tried to include a little bit of almost everything i like for making journals and i've focused on combining as much interesting variety as possible in terms of size, shape, patina, opacity and weight. so there is deli paper, ledger paper, pieces of tissue-weight sewing pattern, old notebook paper, glossy and matte illustrations, road maps, bits of old calendars... let's just say it's a really ASSORTED assortment, lol! you may like to add your own cardstock, patterned paper, or other NEW papercrafting supplies to the mix!
please note that the photos show sample packs only. each kit is unique, but as equal in content and variety as humanly possible; i've made them as close to "the same" as you can get when working with unique and/or vintage items! remember that anything older that's made of paper is *GUARANTEED* to be gloriously, wonderfully, individually IMPERFECT!!! you'll find small tears, wrinkles, spots, stains, browning, fading, pen or pencil marks, antique scotch tape, smudges, smears, etc, etc, on virtually every paper, photo, postcard, etc. to me that's the glory of it, but if you like perfect, pristine items this is not the kit for you!
(items sized larger than the 8.5 x 11" page protector have either been trimmed, folded, or both, as unobtrusively as possible in order to keep packaging and postage STANDARD SIZED and affordable for both of us!)
need more paper, or a specific theme? check out my collage ephemera packs! want an assortment or theme you don't see listed? feel free to ask me... if i have the items you need, i'll be happy to fill your custom order.
thanks for looking and have a happy, creative day!
always excited to receive these and finds you can't believe.
i ship within two business days of payment, via USPS, with delivery confirmation. you may add insurance for the price it costs at the PO--i think it starts around .70 cents. i ship paper packets in a RIGID envelope to keep them safe!
i re-use clean envelopes, boxes and packing materials whenever possible: it keeps costs down AND is just generally a nice thing to do, imo!
i'm happy to accept international orders, but be advised that postage from the USA can get expensive VERY quickly, and i have to charge you what the post office charges me! email or convo me for a shipping estimate on the items you're interested in.
i *LOVE* paypal because it's the quickest and easiest way to pay, but will also accept money orders in $US dollars. the faster i get it, the faster i can ship your stuff!!! :)
please remember that vintage items--especially those made of paper--are ALWAYS full of imperfections!!! this, in my opinion, is a large part of their beauty and unique charm!
i select the cleanest, nicest items for sale, but i GUARANTEE that every listing will have some "character" whether that be in the form of yellowing, scratches, speckles, stains, pencil marks, wrinkles, folds, little tears, rough edges, a faint musty smell... or all of the above! if you want the look of vintage without the flaws, there are some utterly gorgeous reproductions out there!
