Eileen Hull book club tutorial – trinket book

hello everyone!

today is all about showing you the tutorial for the trinket book from the new Eileen Hull release – book club collection

One word that sums up the new Sizzix Book Club collection is VERSATILE! 
Eileen is happy to introduce new Three-in-One Dies – dies that serve multiple purposes to fit into every area of your life. 

There are three new ScoreBoards dies for sturdy project bases and three die sets to embellish them. Each die may be used in many ways – on books, cards, gift boxes, home decor projects, and for storage and organization.

Imagine a die that can create a box, a book and a frame all on one die – we have that! Come explore the Book Club collection with the Inspiration Team and let us know which one is your favorite! Releasing this fall…

by far one of my favourite releases in a while.. so much potential!!! love this die!

so let’s get started.   i stared out by covering the back of my pattern paper with adhesive and then die cut to layer on top of my mat board pieces
next it was time to shape the book with all the papers adhered

then it was time to finish my design. i knew i wanted to be a piece of reflection/moments and that is about it.  so i inked up the little bits using distress inks and markers

i then, using clear embossing ink, heat embossed these little babies!

i then coloured my vignette finial set using black soot distress paint and once dried i used vintage photo ink.. absolutely love the before and after

then it was just a matter of assembling… and because i became so involved in that process… well i forgot to take photos!!  but basically added a tree, coloured a few little blocks using distress paint, and added a couple of chit chat stickers and a star to my tree.

and the final picture outside

and inside

hope you have enjoyed seeing how i have created this project and that you have or are taking the time to stop by Eileen’s blog to see what my fellow inspiration team members are up to!!!

until next time my friends,

Eileen Hull book club tutorial

hello everyone!

i am here today to share with you a brief tutorial on the card or planner organizer project i created for Eileen for her book club collection  release

this was a quick one to put together and i so know i need a few of these in my life!

i started out by covering the card box, planner, organizer die (https://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/662361/sizzix-scoreboards-xl-die-card-box-planner-storage-organizer) with Sizzix foil adhesive sheets.

i had to use to sheets in order to cover the whole thing so lined one sheet up with a folded edge

once it was applied and i bent my mat board my foil cracked…lesson learned would be to apply pieces to individual sections but because i didn’t want to start over and ‘waste’ this adhesive sheet i came up with another plan… more on that later.

i then ran the whole thing through my machine using the daisy wreath embossing folder daisy wreath embossing folder (https://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661423/sizzix-textured-impressions-embossing-folder-daisy-wreath). i had to do this twice switching ends as it is too large for the embossing folder

so now you can see what my quick fix was for the cracked spine but really not a fix but a happy accident right!

now it was just a matter of adhering the tabs together with a stronger adhesive and my project holder was done

but wait!! do you see those cards inside…. how about you come back Friday and let me show you how quick you can put then together!

until next time my friends

Eileen Hull – cookie box but not cookies!

hello everyone!

this is a really quick post today just to share with you another possibility for a really quick Halloween project to hold some treats

this time i used Eileen’s Cookie Box (https://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/659874/sizzix-scoreboards-xl-die-box-cookie) die and the same as last weeks post i cut my pieces first out of mat board and then twice more out of halloween paper for the inside and outside of my project bits. I also used another bat from my candy canister for a handle and covered the inside lip of the box with tissue paper

how quick and easy is this to make really!

so here you have it.. my three pieces for the Eileen Hull design team this month celebrating a holiday!…. this time of year it had to be Halloween (because remember in my first post i said it was all about the candy!)

until next time my friends,

Eileen Hull – Halloween Basket

hello everyone!!

today I am here to show you a quick and fun way to share treats with others.. whether it is for those trick or treaters that come to your door or to sit as a surprise on someones desk at work…

so I started out gathering all the supplies I figured I might need and die cut my basket four times.. twice from mat board and twice from paper

I then painted the edges of my matboard pieces with black paint and applied glue and the precut paper

here are the inside/outside pieces all papered!

then it was jut a matter of assembling. be sure to use a strong adhesive in case your basket gets overstuffed with goodies!

here is a quick look inside

and adding a few finishes touches .. recognize the bat!  i had die cut it from last weeks project 

i trimmed with ribbon around the outside of my basket along with ribbon on the handles and then it was time to add some treats!!

thanks for stopping by and i hope you have been creating!

until next time my friends,

Eileen Hull – candy canister

hello everyone!

welcome to the first of my monthly posts  for Eileen Hull (http://www NULL.eileenhull NULL.com/).   This month the design team are sharing with you projects under the theme of either Halloween, Christmas or Autumn! my project in real life today does not look like this anymore because really the only reason for me to make a Halloween project is to have an excuse to buy candy corn…. I’m just being honest here!

keeping it real folks!!

when deciding what kind of project I wanted to create I knew I just had to use the Ravens (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Cling-Rubber-Stamps-2017-RAVENS-CMS310-CMS310TH) stamp set somehow for my Halloween project. (this is one of the sets i a had won during the Facebook live with Tim Holtz!!!) i had an idea using alcohol ink and what better surface than on some YUPO (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Adirondack-WHITE-ALCOHOL-INK-YUPO-PAPER-TAC49715-TAC49715RI?currency=USD) paper.

so I started out by  cutting out a canister from mat board. I then applied some YUPO paper to some adhesive paper, die cut a canister and then layered on top of my mat board. I then covered my canister with a few darker shades of alcohol ink along with a bit of silver

then this is where the fun part started for me. I placed my canister flat into my stamp platform and using a raven stamp and some black archival ink I stamped and stamped until I got the result I wanted

I loved the ghostly effect but I thought I might try adding some brown archival ink to see if I could add just a bit of colour

now I loved how it turned out and the ‘glow’ around the outside but in the end decided that I wanted it back to the ghostly look

then I ended up getting lost in the process. i had  die cut three bats out of one side and created a window from the ticket mover and shaker out of the other side.

I then lined the whole thing with some clear packaging because I knew I wanted to fill it with candy

and so now here you have it.. my finished canister filled (or was filled) with some halloween treats!

thanks for stopping by and until next time,

diana
