I made a video of this small book using the new Collection of Vintage Cut & Creates shown in the previous posting. You could call it a junk journal but it is really just a small book to illustrate some of the ways of using Vintage Cut & Creates. The concept could be taken to junk journals, art journals, larger albums & cardmaking
This collection includes 8 papers full of ephemera high-quality 300 dpi, jpg format.
Available at: Etsy Shop
Dimensions: cover 12"wide x7'5" with a 1" spine in centre.
Signature #1 is 11.5"wide x6" high with 0.75" spine in centre
Tea dyed vellum 8.5" wide x 4" high with 0.7" spine in the centre
Signature #2 is 12" wide x 5" high with a 2" fold over at one end & a 0.5" spine in the centre of the balance of the 10".
Let your creativity enjoy these papers & create beautiful art.

All of the images are from the 40 paper bundle at: https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/1079528913
Hope this gives you some ideas in using Cut & Creates on cards. The large images on the fronts are the Art Papers 4"x5" - they are also in 8.3'x11" size.
I love decorating the inside - when a card is given, words are exchanged on the front & the inside is usually used for the sentiment. But when an inside is decorated there is a WOW factor. You do not have to go over the top as I have - can't help myself.
There are 5 sections of these papers all in high-quality 300dpi, JPG format but in 3 different sizes.
#1: 8 Background papers in shades of shabby chic - 8.3”x11” - can be used for any backgrounds - cards, tags, journal pages, art journals, mini albums … cut to the size you want & use the scraps for die cuts, strips like washi tape, ticket frames.
#2: The above background papers with art - 8.3”x11” - are ideal for large projects - cards, journals, embellish & use in a 3D frame for a gift
#3: 8 of The art papers in ‘#2’ reduced to 4”x5” - are a great size for cards, tags, postcards & journals - they already have a background so are ready to embellish
#4: 8 of Cut & Creates includes 1 sheet of word tickets - 8.3”x11”
These are also available in a separate listing. will impact any papercraft project.
#5: 8 of Journal papers in vintage shabby chic 10”x7” - cut in half or fold for 5”x7” pages - designed for art journals or shabby chic junk journals but, and there is always a but, why not do some layering using the small art papers, the cut & creates, add some word tickets, some die cuts, flowers, lace & ribbons & what else??
All of the papers can be mixed as you want to make your own shabby chic art
Hope you love the bundle & are inspired to create

I have enjoyed playing with the new Sherlock is Puzzled Collection.
There are 2 Journals on youtube:
There is always some left for a card:
Mocha cardstock 12"w x 6"hi with scares at 4.5" & 9"
Cream jute twine, black cardstock
The cover has a background from one of the journal papers; the cut & create is fussy cut, foam mounted & allowed to have a 3D effect. There is a strip of black cardstock on the edge. Jute twine is wrapped around the front & the first score.
The inside of the card. The 2 Sherlocks are framed in black & mounted flat. The background paper in the centre is from the same journal paper used on the front
The 3rd panel is closed over to show that it also has a black strip on its edge; the magnifying glass is framed in black, foam mounted, has a piece of jute twine tied around it & acts as a tuck spot for the 2 tags tucked in it.
The back is simple with a Sherlock quote framed in black & flat-mounted
Hope you get some ideas from this trifold card - the style can be adapted to any kind of theme.

All you need for a Sea Garden is water & a blue sky:
An actual sea is ideal but if you have a lake or river, a background pool or even a blow-up rubber pool you have a sea garden. If you have a backyard pool, put up a sign “BEACH”, add some large fake shells, some fishnet draped on the fence & you are on the beach.
