Journal Kit









For the latest Street Team challenge I've put together a journaling kit... from things at The Container Store (I work there part time). I was pleased to find out that my favorite journaling book Journal Revolution fits perfectly inside so I can take inspiration with me as well as tools! The second photo shows the second layer with my Moleskine journal.

Next I show the small boxes inside that hold markers and small stamp pads and colored pencils, a glue stick, x-acto knife and a double stick adhesive dispenser.



The next photo shows small cups to hold embellishments. They are magnetic on the bottom and I stuck small round metal discs that have adhesive on the back so they stay in place and don't rattle all over the box. The last photo shows a clear pouch that holds some individual pages for another journal, some scrap paper, tags and clippings from magazines to add into the journal. I've made a few pages already using my kit, I'll post those on Tuesday.

What a great looking kit! I go to the Container Store all the time, but I think that even though they have so many choices, it's hard to find one that is just right. I love yours!

It's so neat to be a voyeur into people's kits. Thanks for sharing this. Also, if you're writing a zine on clogs, I must have a copy!!

Sorry! What I ment to say:
That is so well organised! And the magnet thing is so clever!

Bianca said...

Oh, your stuff is so very NEAT! I am jealous, even my kit felt like chaos personified with bits of vintage paper scraps shoved in the pockets!

This is really cool Pam...I must find a container store! Normally with my traveling kit there is more that I want to take along than what I can fit, so this is a cool option for me!

Thanks for sharing!

I love the stream lined style of everything....functional art and that is just your kit...I bet your studio is just as fabulous! Love the magnetic canisters...so simple...so smart! I will be checking out the container store...wish you worked at the one near me...it would be fabulous to meet a GPP crusade friend in person!

Magnetic "thingos" - what a brilliant idea. I would not have thought of that. Thank you so much.
