If you’re anything like me, you like a good junk journal theme. It makes it easier to pick papers, ephemera, washi and other goodies to create a pretty and cohesive spread throughout your book.

But sometimes I get stuck in rut, repeating similar themes over and over again because I can’t think of anything new. So I started listing out ideas when I had them and keeping a record so that I could refer back to it when I needed some junk journal inspiration. I’m sharing that with you today in hopes that it’s equally helpful for your journaling!
