E.K. Success Smash Books and Fancy Pants Brag Books seem to be all the rage this Summer! But the idea is certainly nothing new... I think the big companies are just cashing in on something scrapbookers were already doing on their own. In fact, Tangie Baxter posted a series of videos on You Tube on how to create a Junque Journal back in January of 2010. I picked up on the idea from Kai and created my own back in March of 2010 and blogged about it here.
My own Junque Journal:
As you can see, my pages are often very simple and bereft of embellishments. I don't put things in order ... I just open up to a random page and add stuff. And I don't worry about mixing stuff on a page either! Which makes it even more eclectic and fun. And this little gem is great to flip through when I need a quick pick me up. When you start adding happy mail and such... it gets quite fat quickly!
