Tres Jolie Kit Club–March 2020 Moodboard– “Emerald Queen” Junk Journal

Hey everyone! Welcome back to my blog!

Today I have an example project, a junk journal, for this months moodboard challenge for the Tres Jolie Kit Club!


I was in love with the “Emerald Queen” line by AB Studio that came in this months scrapbooking kit as soon as I saw the photos! And when I saw the books on the moodboard, I knew I’d be making a junk journal! And it was serendipitous that the green fabric image (above the clocks) fit with some sari silk I had already prepared for use! Below the moodboard image I have two video links, one is a flip-through of the completed journal and the other is a process video.

“Emerald Queen” Junk Journal Process


On the spine I let some of the fibers from The Paper Studio peek through the zipper, then added a Prima Vintage Trinket! I added some “Sage” Embossing Powder by Ranger to the chipboard from the kit and added it to the layers on my cover.


Here you can see the many various laces I used along the edges of the pages!


I layered some scraps of fabric, lace, and a zipper from an old jacket with items from this months kit on the cover, “holding” them in place with clips from my stash!


The band I used to hold the junk journal closed is a headband! I found packages of them on clearance one time and it suddenly dawned on me that they would be great for junk journals!

Junk Journal-Tres Jolie Kit Club November Mood Board


For me a “scrapbooking kit” doesn’t necessarily mean I’m going to be making scrapbook pages! Sometimes I just can’t resist using (almost) everything up in one project, like the junk journal I made for this month mood board!

Denim Junk Journal

A junk journal I created using some denim from a pair of old jeans, bits of lace and string, old sheets of music, paper I dyed with inks and/or tea, and the “Denim & Girls” Collection by Maja Design (that came in the July 2019 Tres Jolie Kit Club Scrapbooking Kit).
