Ephemera for Junk Journals

Saturday, May 4th, 1-3pm

Class Description: Learn to embellish and fill your junk journal with different kinds of ephemera.  We will start with a simple pocket or tuck and a simple tag or journaling card. Then we will embellish them with assorted items. As time permits we will make more and different pockets or tucks. There will be a variety to choose from and the class will choose the items to make.

“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 start on items to fill it when you get one.

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!
