Tim Holtz Halloween Junk Journal

Happy Halloween everyone! For those of you who will be trick or treating this week I've put together a new Halloween Junk Journal using the leftovers from previous Tim Holtz projects and some of his fabulous Halloween Worn Wallpaper. It's a great way to create somewhere special to store memories of the festivities whilst wasting none of those scraps that we all accumulate.

As there is a lot to see inside this junk journal here's a video flip through to show more and explain how it came together;

You'll see from the close ups below that Tim's 'Materialize' Halloween fabric range gives you the look we all know and love with the added bonus of creating a tactile surface on the journal cover that makes it lovely to hold.

Close Ups of the 'Raggedy' Collage Inserts

As promised in the video here are some more details shots of those 'Raggedy' collages inside. Many thanks to Nik The Booksmith for sharing how to create these wonderful collages and inspiring me to create some for this journal;

I hope you feel inspired to grab those seasonal scraps and create your own Halloween Junk Journal. In the meantime and in case you missed any of them, Tim shares some more fantastic Halloween inspiration HERE and HERE.

For now take care of yourselves and get creating!

  1. Wow! This is outstandingly amazing! LOVE it so much! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Love your halloween journal. It is so cool. Love all the layers & images.

  3. question for you - how did you bind the journal?

    1. Hi there. I punched a couple of holes at the top and bottom of the spine, ran thin elastic through twice and secured it where the charms are at the top on the outside. The signatures could then be slid in place using the elastic to secure them. Hope that helps :)

  4. So so fun and cool Jenny! LOVE that you sewed through out. The pages and the way you laid it all out is wonderful!

  5. This is one gorgeous and inspiring junk journal. I love all the stitching and vintage photos.

  6. This is a stunning book Jenny!! The cover is so gorgeous and I love your brilliant take on Nik's raggedy pages! So cool and so inspiring!! hugs xx

  7. What a great way to use Tim's stuff this year--nicely done!

  8. Hello
    Do you have a video that shows how you put the pages into the book? I’m a little fuzzy on the actual page installation

    1. Hi there. I have shared a step by step for how to add the elastic to hold the inserts in place here; https://frillyandfunkie.blogspot.com/2017/09/saturday-step-by-step-romantic-journal.html
      Hope that helps xx
