Scrap Journal Page

Hello all and welcome back to the blog. It's been awhile since I did some journaling just for me and not for something specific. I sat down at my craft table and opened my journal
with intentions to do a page but my mind went blank. 
I couldn't think of what I wanted the page to be about and I was looking around my table for inspiration and I had that "lightbulb" moment. LOL... has that ever happened to you?
I had so many papers and scraps and other doo-dads on my table and I thought, "why not make a page with only items that were currently on my craft table?"
I encourage you to do this, specially if your a crafter and don't clean up your table often enough haha! 
If you decide to do this please leave me link to your photo or blog post so I can see what you have done as well

While creating this page, it kind of took on a life of it's own. There are torn papers, pieces of leftover wash tape, stamps, stencils and the flower at the bottom of the page was a mask that I used on a Stampotique challenge a few weeks back. It has been stamped on several times with black ink
The butterfly was already stamped, colored and cut out and I didn't use it previously so it sat there for months on my desktop, same with the crow.

The quote on the tag I had printed that out a few months back and intended to use it on a project and then never did LOL...

I love the way my page came out, this was so much fun. I will have to do it again in a few months and see what I come up with.
I hope that you will try this at some point, it's really fun to challenge yourself to create something with only the leftovers on your desk. Have fun and thanks for stopping by.


  1. I like this idea Claudine, what a great way to use up leftovers. I love how your page turned out, even a pocket for the tag.

  2. I love what you did. I call this crafting cleanup. This week I made a card out of what was on my desk and in bags on the floor of things purchased but not put away. It was fun to put together a card with thrift store finds and leftovers on my desk. Thanks for sharing another fabulous project.

  3. I love how this page came out

  6. It turned out wonderfully and so great to use up "leftovers"!
