today i am here to share with you a special little journal i created for a special couple that i was privileged enough to witness their wedding late 2017.
I have been provided with some product to create this project however the opinions I share are solely my own
i didn’t do any step outs but as you will see by the following pictures it is a pretty easy -peasy process!!
i used pieces from Eileen Hull’s lastest release “book club” and i will post links below for them!!!
get ready for some pictures of a beautiful day!
that is but a few of the many pages in this little journal. i believe there are around 30 pages of pictures so far but i have left lots and lots of space for them to add their own thoughts and pictures if they so chose. and the lovely thing about Eileen’s journal is we are able to keep adding signatures if need to accommodate extra pictures!!
i sure hope you have enjoyed the peak into this book and i really hope that the couple will enjoy it as well.
life really is about the ups and downs and all the little detours along the way isn’t it….
until next time my friends,

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
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,
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,
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,
