Folio Junk Journal

 I really love the Tim Holtz folios, I used the hinge to make 4 individual folios and glued them together to make a junk journal.  I used some my favorite funky chipboard designs and AB studio paper pack "In the Past", "Love for Old Things" along with a floral paper cut outs.

I used file folders to make the folios, once they were all glued together made a closure flap with elastic strap.



Open folios.


AB Studios paper pack come with great cutting elements, tags, frame, poloraid cards and sayings.  Makes them great to use for a junk journal, lots of varies shapes and sizes for added interest. I used old photos i purchased off etsy since i find it easier to scrapbook with photos since i like to layer on top.

I went through my stash and used up a bunch of odds and ends.  I had canvas sticker letter, chipboard letter, and metal bits these were used for accents.

New chipboard design- chess pieces


I used my pipe chipboard to make pipe cluster around photos and sayings.  Love how these turned out.


I like how with the folio hinge you can see the layers underneath,  you do need to be aware of the front and back since you can see both.  Luckily most of the papers were double sided.

This is one of my favorite chipboard designs, the bone frame of ribs, spine then behind the organs and major blood vessels.  The floral paper cut outs behind really add to the final look.


Here is a couple other chipboard designs I love - dressframe with lungs and Bowler and Apple (Portrait "Son of a Man")

I also found the key to the folios is to start with smaller pages/clusters and work your way up to larger pages/clusters


This will be a kit sold at Treasured Memories in Edmonton- should be in store at the beginning of July.
