Tim Holtz Collage Mini Book

Hi everyone and welcome. I'm back with you today to share a new handmade book, created with lots of favourite Tim Holtz goodies. It's a vintage style pocket sized book containing a mix of blank journaling pages and others filled with stamping and collage elements.

The Cover


Let's begin with the cover, which is built around Tim's Baseboards Frames and a fabric sandwich embossed with his new 'Botanical' 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder.


Here's a close up of the detail on the front cover, a collection of Tim's Funky Floral die cuts, Botanical Layers, and an altered Adornment Butterfly.


The Video Flip Through and Tutorial


I've already had lots of question about how the cover was created, so here's a video sharing my 'how to's for the whole book and a flip through inside;


The Collage Pages


Now as promised in the video here are some photos showing the collage pages in more detail;













So there you have it! I hope you've enjoyed seeing and finding out more about this little book. Hopefully you now feel the need to use some of these ideas for your own projects. I think I've covered everything but if you do have any questions please just leave a comment below.


I'm entering this into the Mini Album Makers Challenge - June 2018

Take care of yourselves and get creative!

  14. Jenny, I can't tell you how much I adore this wonderful tiny book! The cover is pure genius and I've been wanting to do signatures this way for ages and haven't been brave enough. Now that I've got my machine cooperating better with paper I am going to have a go for sure! I truly love your carefree style of collage and all of the beautiful layering that makes this such a work of art. We are thrilled that you shared with us at Mini Album Makers and hope you'll find time to play again this month. Big hugs, Autumn
