Halloween Smash Book Junk Journal

Halloween Smash Book Junk Journal

This Halloween Smash Book Junk Journal is my Spellblogger project share for this week.  Although the temps are still high in the Houston area, I can’t wait to start decorating for the fall and Halloween!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and I just can’t get enough of it! I don’t know where I get this obsession; but making this Halloween Smash Book Junk Journal from scratch, sure satisfies my Spook-ta-cular crafting palatte!

Is it a Smash Book or is it a Junk Journal?

I’ve watched plenty of videos and looked at a ton of pictures to barely be able to tell the difference between one or the other now! Smash Books and Junk Journals seem to have a lot in common. One of the biggest is that they don’t look like mini albums.  You can fill them to the rim with all your favorite pictures and items that they can get pretty chunky.  And that’s what I love about the Smash Book / Junk Journal.

  1. Great Smash Book Junk Journal!!!! Love it.
    May I ask what kind of paper did you use for the pages? It looks very flexible. Thank you!!

    1. Hi Carolyn! The front covers were made with an old pack from Tuesday Morning. However, the pages inside are from Graphic 45. The flexibility of the pages has to do with how you adhere them to the binding. When adhering your page, don’t bring it right to the score mark of the bind. Leave about an eighth from the score mark. If you check my shabby chic paper bag mini album tutorial, I explain how I add my pages to the binding system.You’ll find that tutorial here: https://youtu.be/vrpTD3_V5qE I hope this helps 🙂
