********************************************************************

If anyone is interested in creating and swapping an Envelope Junk Journal, please leave a message below on this thread.

I'm thinking of creating a junk journal incorporating envelopes, the sky and your imagination are the limit. You may use the envelopes as the cover of the journal and pages and/or pockets. Different sized envelopes may add even more character! Be sure to embellish the pages, add pretties, journaling cards, papers, etc. to journal on. Perhaps this may even inspire you to store your love letters in, or perhaps, the love letters your grandfather sent to your grandmother many years ago. Something that could be used as a personal memory journal or a keepsake. This will not be your typical lined paper journal to write it, so please think outside of the box!

Sign ups will be through February 28th, I will draw random names and post that evening.

Mail out will be by March 16th.

I have found my inspiration and am excited to start creating!

Love and Nostalgia to all!

Dianna you are so sweet. Oh yeah I am glad to be on . Been gone for a week and then medical stuff. I think I had that flu, didn't think I was going to get over that. But am better. So now trying to catch up with my sissies and swappies. I have got started on my swap here. Whoohoo!

Let the fun begin.......LOL

Hi Beth, Wow! You received that fast!! So happy you liked it. I was a little nervous since it wasn't very traditional as far as journals go! Wishing you a lovely spring as well! ~ April

Hi Mary, I've attached a few pictures of the envelope journal I sent Beth, however, these pictures were before it was finished, the photos are missing the wax seals, which were personally one of my favorite embellishments on the envelopes, but I failed to get pictures of them completed and before I sent it off... hopefully these will give you an idea of what I created, it was a little outside the box from a traditional journal. Probably not for all, but I really liked it and ended up making myself one similar as well. LOL! Each envelope had smaller envelopes, coffee stained papers and pretties inside to journal on.

So I had to look to see who was sending to me and its Rebecca! Thank you so much for this beautiful journal!! My favorite pumpkin spice tea!! ( the only way I can have Fall all year, lol) the pencils and handkerchiefs!! It was created so lovely Rebecca and I adore the stamps throughout!!! Xx

Darling junk journal Dianna and Rebecca, would love to see in side pages if you can!! Love the felt letters and nostalgic typewriter embellishment on the front with all the lace and ribbons poking out!
