“Making A GlueBook”

Hi Crafters,

I was away, last weekend and I showed my sister how to make a Junk Journal using a book cover. I decided I wanted to turn my small one into a Serendipity Journal and make a larger one into a Glue/Collage Journal.

Above is my small journal that will be for my Serendipity scraps. I just made one signature from some leftover pattern paper scraps, a few pages from one of my Daphne’s Diary magazine and a few bits of tea-dyed copy paper.

For my larger glue book, I added a bigger spine to a cover I had. This is how I did this baking paper technique above, “HERE”

You can see above, I just used some cardstock from my stash to glue my collages on and I used some Sari Silk to bind my pages in.


To finish off the front cover, I decided to use the image of one of my Daphne’s Diary magazines which had the door on it. I also and added a bit of doodling to the door. For these two projects, I used everything from my stash to create them.

I used one of my favourite quotes, that mum always said to me. Mum always knew things would work out and I think she has left her Faith with me…………….

This was a fun project to do and now I have a Glue Book to cut and paste all my fun images in. I will be gluing to my heart’s content!

I hope you have enjoyed this post and please feel free to let me know if you like my project 🙂

Thanks for stopping by………..

  1. You do wonderful work on your junk journals, Kerri and I love following you. I’m still to make a start on one yet but hope to soon. I am disabled and rarely able to leave my home, so getting hold of old books and magazines is difficult. Old cards are one thing I do have a lot of so I thought I could make a start by cutting up some of them and making small tags and banners etc. My mum used to stick old cut up cards and put them in scrapbooks and my younger brother and I loved looking at them often. Thank you for all the great and beautiful inspiration you share with us. Wendy Schultz. xXx


    1. Hi Wendy, thanks for popping in. Cards are a great item to add to you journals. You can even make one to keep them all in 🙂 I am happy you are finding some inspiration, I love creating it xx


    2. Hi Wendy, thanks for popping in. Great idea for using the cards 🙂 I have made a journal to keep my special card and post cards in xx
