I received one of @LovelyMiss’s junk journal kits and decided my project would be what Shannon Green calls a “journal for no reason” (basically, a journal for no one dedicated reason). I plan to use it to capture quotes a la @Bunny1kenobi’s journal but also junk journaling, sticking and plonking bits of paper and magazine images, etc.
I partially followed LM’s tutorial but also did my own thing because I’ve watched a lot of journal making YT videos and am obviously independently an expert . The final product is three signatures of 8 pages. I bound them in using a running stitch because there’s a wide variety of page height and placement, and for stability I wanted to improve my chances that every page would be stitched in at least two places.
I challenged myself to use only items from the kit, so with the exception of a few staples, everything you’re about to see came from LovelyMiss. The clipped- and tucked-in bits and bobs are subject to be moved/replaced, but I wanted to primp it a bit to start .

Okay, the hair clip isn’t part of the kit, but it’s also not a permanent part of the journal. I just needed help keeping it open for pictures.
I used some of the supplies to create journal accessories(?). Here’s the full complement of froofy paperclips and journal cards, some of which are already in use and some of which are on deck.
If you’re still here, thanks for looking! And also, please hold me accountable for filling this sucker up and not just mooning over it.
