Let's start with the definition of a Junk Journal, there are many, so we are going to give you our definition and hope it aligns with your ideas as well.  Junk Journals are hand-held books made from a curated collection of paper, fabric, ephemera, trims, envelopes and more.  The items can truly be junk, maybe left over mail, a year old calendar, an old notebook, pages from a magnetic note pad, old stamps, pieces of fabric and lace found at a flea market, the items can be brand new items to you, maybe something you exchanged with a friend, picked up at a craft shop or part of a kit club that inspired you or they can be from your stash. The techniques used in making Junk Journals are truly endless, but there are some really fun and simple ways to use different paper sizes, paper weights, found objects and more that will encourage you to use things you never thought would work in a journal.

Canvas Corp Brands has teamed up with founder and leader of the Friendly Junk Journal Facebook Group, Linda Israel to bring you this simple get started kit.  The kit was created by Linda and CCB co-founder Christine Meier, with the goal to curate found objects, new objects and creative pieces that not only look amazing when they come together, but allow Linda to teach her favorite techniques and help get you started with this very fun craft.

"We are so excited to create this kit with Linda and having the chance to see the opportunities in items we did not even realize were ideal for Junk Journals," said Christine Meier.  The kit includes current papers, re-created papers, wonderful vintage 7gypsies packaging, scraps of specialty papers and more.  Junk Journals really don't have any rules, so the kit includes papers of different sizes and shapes, so anything goes when making a Junk Journal and we cannot say it enough...THERE ARE NO RULES!!!!  Here are a few techniques you will learn with the kit and video tutorial where Linda walks you through each page showing you different ways you can put them together.  If you are a beginner you will have a great introduction and if you are an seasoned journal maker, we hope you learn something new.
