Ephemera for Journals 

Wednesday, April 17th, 1pm-3pm

Class Description: Lets explore ephemera and how it adds depth, texture, and visual interest to junk journals. We will use unique materials to create functional and visually appealing journals.

“Ephemera: collectible memorabilia that was not intended to last a long time or were specially produced for one occasion. Examples: tickets, postcards, newspapers, sheet music, money, labels, calendars, maps, etc”

All Included: Ephemera, fabric, buttons, charms, assorted papers, scissors, glue, ribbon, thread, and so much more! Bring a journal you have been working with or create one during class.

Ages: 10+ (Under 18 accompanied by an adult)

Location: Meet us in the “Who Gives a Scrap” Classroom. Turn left when you enter the front door and head to the back of the Sales Floor.

Instructor: I am a wife, mother, stepmother, and grandmother to the most beautiful and creative people ever!  My wonderful and supportive husband, Mike, and I have been married since September of 2023.  Yes, we’re newlyweds! Previously, I was widowed from a wonderful relationship of over 30 years.  My life is blessed with wonderful people and surrounded by creative pursuits.

I have been retired since 2020, but in the past I have had many jobs including  electronics technician/computer engineer (19 years)  and real estate salesperson (17 years).  In both those jobs I loved helping people, teaching, and creating and designing.   Now I love expressing my creativity and relaxing by making journals, and I love how people’s faces light up when they receive them.

I have been crafting all my life.   Some of the crafts I’ve done include:  quilting, scrapbooking, digital design, and beading.  All of these are used in my newest pursuit:  making journals. You can call my journals junk journals, and although I do use some junk in all of them, I also use digital pages printed out, beautiful vintage items, and fabric and lace.  For example, quilt squares make lovely covers for journals, adding color and texture.  Beads are used to make dangles for the closure, and beautiful embellishments on the spine of the book.  Mail junk can be cut into pockets and tags and trimmed with lace or fun images for  journaling and decoration.

I hope you’ll come on this journey with me. It’s a good life!
