Halloween mini book by Julie Jacob

This beautiful Halloween mini book was created by Julie Jacob and features some of the free stamp designs from the September downloads - available from

To see more pictures of this project: take a look on

In the meantime here are some notes from Julie:

What you need
Teresa Collins Haunted Hallows mini book covers (1)
TC Haunted Hallows Poison paper
TC Haunted Hallows Sticker Sheet
Halloween word stickers & scallop border - unknown
Jute twine
Black sequin trim - fabric store
Dictionary paper
Stampmaker & September download (along came a spider)
Bling spider - Martha Stewart
Orange glitter tape
Black mist - Maya Road
Ribbon & bling for binder rings

What to do
Cut an 8x8 mini book cover in half and sand the edges.
Making sure your covers are facing the right way, punch matching holes in the second piece.
Lightly mist/spatter the cover and let dry.
Stamp 'along came a spider' on dictionary paper and add to center of book cover.
Add small strip of chevron paper, black scallop & glitter tape.
Add stickers behind top layer, and cover with strip of black sequins.
Wrap jute twine above stamped words.
Add blingy spider to finish off the cover.
I added ribbons and bling to my top binder ring.
The inner pages are made from scraps of papers and embellishments in my Halloween drawer. :)
Make your pages a little smaller than the book, around 3 1/2" x 7" or so. It doesn't matter if they're not all the same size. In fact, it's fun if they're all different! 

The stamps from September's download are great for a Halloween book. :)
