In this workshop, you’ll create two projects. We’ll use a blank greeting card to transform into an easy travel journal complete with pockets for all of those traveling treasures. We will also use a single pice of card stock to create a junk journal embellished to your particular tastes.

We will have a buffet of materials to personalize your creations. Come learn the art of junk journaling!

This workshop is best for folks over 12, minors must be accompanied by a ticketed adult. Tickets can be purchased here. 

About the Instructor:

Sam Beckerman has been crafting since grade school. She spent her allowance on those fabric loops to make potholders and then her grandmother taught her to embroider. In junior high and high school, she learned to tailor clothes and won ribbons at the County Fair. She retired at 50 and mainly works with paper now, after voting mosaics off the island. During the early years of retirement, she collected many blue ribbons at the Nevada State Fair. She’s especially proud of the wedding album (redone) that won a “best of show” award. She tells people it was the big blue one with the metal center – like they give the cows! She regularly taught Junk Journal workshops at Recycled Reads until they closed down for COVID in 2020.
