    New Junk Journal & Hardware (+ Metal Hardware on Sale!)

    Filed under Alice in Wonderland, Art Projects, Bella Ayers, Coins Coasters & Holders Kit, Collage Sheets, Sale

    Wow! A fun Junk Journal by Bella, using the new 5×7 Vintage Spiral Book shown at right; lots of new items (including a lot of metal hardware that could be used on a journal) — and a 30% off sale on the Metal – Functional section!

    Alice in Wonderland Junk Journal by Design Team Coordinator Miz Bella (Kimberly Ayers)

    LOVE this new journal by Bella! She mixed Alice with pockets from the May kit… all in the new blank journal and it just came out great!

    Here’s an intro from Bella’s blog post:

    There are always two things that you can always count on finding at Alpha Stamps — Halloween and Alice in Wonderland!

    Leslie asked me to create a junk journal and I didn’t have to think twice about it — I love making them. If you don’t know what a junk journal is — it’s basically junk you put into a journal. There are no rules, no right or wrong way to make them. If you can cut and glue then you can make a junk journal!

    This journal is much neater than what I normally come up with, but I love the way it came out all the same.

    I love the way it came out, too! The pre-printed pages in the journal (that look like antique ledger paper) makes easy work of created a vintage-looking page. (And using the little holders meant for art coins as tea bag pockets is inspired!)

    Beside the few photos shown here (and below in the Giveaway section), visit Bella’s blog post for lots more info & photos! And here’s a link to the full supply list.
