Junk journal with video flip through

Hello friends and thanks for dropping in! About 10 days or so again I shared the cover of a junk journal I am working on and today I am finally ready to show you some pages. I have also made a little flip through video, if you would like to see more.
First a few photos:
What I am showing today is just the first insert. I am in the process of making three in total.
Here you can see the cover, made from Kraftcard and embossed with one of Tim Holtz's new 3D embossing folders.
Here the first double page with a pocket, you can find a tutorial for these here and a number of different tags, a tuck spot and journaling card. All the papers used are tea dyed and then inked with Distress inks.
Another double page, this time with an embossed belly band, a pocket created with a die and another tag with space for journaling or a photo on the back.
Yet more pockets and tags/journaling spots

And finally one more page with quite a bit of stamping and stencilling as well as a little altered little glassine bag holding yet another little tag.

There are a lot more pages and if you would like to see them, just click HERE to go to the youtube video. As it is my very first actual video rather than just a slide show, I do apologize for the quality, I am still learning...

Well, that it's for today, thanks for visiting like always and until next time.

I see your beautiful projects in may email all the time and realized today that I haven't been letting you know how wonderful they are and how much I look forward to seeing your projects in my email. It is always inspiring. Thank you for sharing so much creativity and beauty.

Today's journal is lovely and I think that because of you, I must take a swing at creating my own. Thank you.

This is gorgeous Astrid. I really enjoyed the video. I've never done a video but when you watch it you definitely feel like you are holding the book and looking through it. I should think about doing one as I only have 2 blank pages left in my Japan journal. I love how you added all the small ATC sized cards and all the other bits which really make the book a very rich and interactive piece. Hope all is well with you and thank for all your nice comments on my photos. Hugs-Erika

I so enjoyed your very first video. You are brave to do that - I understand they take a long time to shoot, edit and produce. Great job! Beautiful vintage journal.

These journals or mini albums certainly takes time and if you are like me, I never really know when its finished...I keep adding to it! LOL

I love seeing all the amazing vintage touches that you added to your lovely journal. Thank you so much for sharing with us.

Amazing journal. Amazing covers/pockets/tags/envelopes and all other embelishments you make. I cannot wait for your next post. Astrid, thank you for all your freebies and all your projects you share with us. Every time I get a huge inspiration and motivation to start creating a new journal or inserts. I like your idea to ink already tea dyed paper. Paper gets a wonderful dark and old look, which I like. And Tim Holz 3D embossing folders...what to say...meadailons you have created are amazing. Such a small detail and what a great effect. Astrid, my comment might be a bit longer, but it can hardly describe how I am impressed. Please don´t stop sharing your project with us. We are hungry for your posts :)

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
