Junk Journal Printables FAQs

Why I Make Junk Journal Printables

Sometimes people ask me why I make so many printables and the short answer is “because I can!” Woot woot!

The long answer is, I have been a graphic designer for over 20 years now (I started in the old desktop publishing days) and I have all the cool programs like Photoshop and Illustrator that makes it easy for me to do them!

Who Can Use These Printables?

I do mostly mixed media collage, but you can use them for junk journals, as parts of scrapbook pages or even in products you intend to sell!

What Is The Commercial License?

I LOVE helping small business owners so my designs all have a free commercial license! You can print these out and use them for any reason!

Here are a few ways peeps have used them:

  • A man in Africa prints them out and sells them at his store
  • An Etsy seller uses them in her journals that she sells online
  • A gal said she is selling scrapbook layouts in person at craft fairs

The only thing you can't do is distribute them digitally in any way (except to send to your printer or Kinkos, etc!)

Where Do I Get The Images I Use?

I get the images for these printables from Graphics Fairy and Creative Market. In both cases there is a commercial license to use as a designer so you won't get dinged for using copyrighted items.

Mose of these vintage ephemera images are in the public domain or made by a illustrator who designs them from scratch.

HI Tara~ Congratulations on your roles as mother; caregiver; wife; creativity inspiration. I've been watching many You Tube videos on art journaling; junk journaling; techniques; equipment, etc. I'm just starting and need some 'next steps'. I watched your video on Backgrounds, but now I don't know where to go from there (courage, please). Can you tell me if you have numbered videos to follow? Thank you for any help that you can offer.

Hi Tara, I just found your site and thought I'd ask a question...where/how can I learn how to create the junk journal kits? There are so many people selling them, that there has to be a way for people like me who aren't designers to learn the process, right? I can find all of the graphics I want, but I need someone to teach me how to put it all together. Do you have any resources you could point me toward or do you have tutorials I haven't found? Thanks!
