Eileen Hull – July Journalling

hello everyone

today I am here to share with you my latest project for the Eileen Hull Inspiration team (http://www NULL.eileenhull NULL.com/)

this project started last month spinning around in my head as I was cleaning up my studio.  if you recall in May we had a wonderful swap with Kunin felt and I have so very much left that I have been hoarding.. I am not sure about you but sometimes it is hard to make that first cut right!!

anyway with that said I did it!!

I started out by cutting my journal covers from the beautiful grey felt.. after admiring it for a while I needed to decide what to put on it…that is when I decided to decorate it with these flowers

and then i cut out some more in different felt colours until i had enough to decorate the front

here are the chosen colours…

now, if you know me, you know I am really not a stitcher because I find it hard to do anything in a straight clean line so I don’t happen to own any embroidery thread BUT you see my sister is a beautiful stitcher and recently she left a container at my place soooo.. RIGHT!!!  I started digging through her stash for just the right colours and then.. it needed a little something so I cut out the Sizzix Scoreboards die – Bird Sizzix Scoreboards die – Bird (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/657120/sizzix-scoreboards-die-bird) and attached her to the front

now….. what to do.. from the heart my projects are so I did a bit of research and found a site that had lists of things to be grateful for so I printed them out, stitched them into my journal and added the word gratitude to the front

i sewed bits of Eileen Hull paper onto each page to allow for some hidden spots to journal on…

and here you have it!

I hope you have stuck around and enjoyed reading/looking through my process. please do leave me a comment as well as jump on over to Eileen’s (http://www NULL.eileenhull NULL.com) page to see what my fellow design teamies are up too!

  1. I love the idea of a gratitude journal. If I had one you’d be in it! LOVE the felting too…so fun and bright and cheery. Hugs to you!

  2. That grey Kunin felt was by far my favourite and I can understand you not wanting to cut it or the other pieces! I love your journal, it looks so soft and tactile and I love how you incorporated so many of the dies – brilliant job! Anne x

  4. Diana- this journal just makes so happy! It seems like the bird is smiling at me from his little flower nest 🙂 So cute and bet it feels very soft- love felt!
