How to Make a

Over the years one of the things that I’ve learned about being a creative business owner is that if you don’t write things down, they are soon forgotten. This is particularly true when creative ideas arrive in a flash of inspiration because they often arrive at the least convenient times, so I always make sure to carry a notebook or journal with me wherever I go so I can capture my ideas as they arrive.

I sometimes use a small notebook that I always carry with me, but I also like to be a little more creative with my notebooks and journals. For the last several years I’ve been making a style of junk journal that I call my “creative ideas” junk journal, to write, sketch, and capture the thoughts, ideas and things that inspire me. One of the things that I love about these types of journals is that there are no rules about how they should be made or what should be included in them. They are my own personal space so I get to make them in a way that works for me.

After I shared a tutorial for making the Scrappy Journal Cover last week – you can find the tutorial here – I decided to use the cover for a new “creative ideas” junk journal so while I was making the journal, I also made a quick video showing you how I do it. I hope it inspires you to make your own “creative ideas” junk journal.
