Sizzix Eileen Hull Chapter 3 Release Party

Today is launch day for Eileen’s new Sizzix release, it’s a fabulous collection and I can’t wait to bring these dies and embossing folders to Create and Craft in a couple of week’s time.

First, there’s a look at all the elements:

Here’s the info from Eileen herself on her thinking behind this collection –

“I am so excited to share my Chapter 3 Sizzix die collection! Each piece in the set stands alone but also coordinates with the others to make a truly versatile and valuable addition to your collection.

The ScoreBoards Skinny Mini Book Box is a really great size- it measures 6 3/4″ x 4″ with an adjustable built in spine from 3/8″ to 2 1/4″. This die may be used to create a book by die cutting two covers OR a box if you add the side pieces to the covers. If you add the box supports, it will hold mini-slimline size cards.

The Skinny Mini Elements Thinlits will cut a cool star pattern that perfectly covers the front of the Skinny Mini book or the front of a slimline card. And you can also expand the size of the design to create a whole page pattern.

I have been wanting to make a Card Caddy die for a while… so many people are making cards these days that I figured that they would love to have the ability to make a really pretty container to hold them. I love the shape of this box and it goes together so quickly- also fun to decorate! It will hold cards up to 5 1/4″ wide.

The 3D folder is called Woven Leather and it looks so realistic! Makes a great background for cards, journal pages or covers”.

I’m already thinking that card caddy’s filled with cards would make lovely Christmas presents, so that’s something else to add to my ‘to do’ list!

I’m also very happy to have another journal option – I absolutely love making journals, and how lovely does the Skinny Mini Elements die look on the front?

It also looks beautiful on a card front (and of course the card fits nicely inside both the book and the caddy).

SO NOW FOR THE IMPORTANT INFO!

There’s a blog hop to celebrate the launch as well as a FB live. Pop over to Eileen’s blog for all the details. There’s also some prizes, so make sure you catch the live!

I’ll be on Create and Craft TV on the 22 August with the release, so you can expect to see more creations and inspiration from me over the next couple of weeks.

Sizzix Eileen Hull Shadow Box dies

I made this lovely framed piece recently for a Facebook live, so thought I’d share some instructions on making it.

I used the largest frame die from the Shadow Box #2 set for the frame, and cut it four times to make a square.

This frame measures 15.5cm x 15.5cm, so I cut a piece of kraft card that size for the backing, then added some pale aqua card to the front.

I then used a Tim Holtz stencil (THS004) to add some uneven stripes with Sizzix Texture paste. I then added some Prima Sparks acrylic paint on top, in a rainbow. For the rest of the background I did a little bit of stamping in brown ink (Tim Holtz Papillon and Studio Light Jenine’s Mindful Art Collection). Once the ink had dried I dry-brushed some gesso on the background.

To create a little ledge for the houses, I cut two strips of mat board and stuck them back to back, then covered with a piece of frayed burlap. I cut the houses from kraft card and backed them with some patterned paper and an old book page. I added them with foam pads to give a bit of dimension.

I then dry-brushed some gesso on the frame, on the front and sides, then added some Tim Holtz Crackle Texture paste with a spatula and set aside to dry.

Thanks for popping by today, I’ll list below the main products used.

More Sizzix Eileen Hull Shadow Boxes

I’m back to share some more shadow boxes ahead of my Sizzix shows on Create and Craft this Thursday and Friday. It’s a One Day Special, so I’ll be on at 6pm and 9pm on Thursday 19th, and 10am and 2pm on Friday 20th. Hope you can join me!

Of course, you don’t have to use die cuts with the shadow boxes, they are great for creating frames for your favourite stamped artwork. For this one I used one of the Miss Dee stamp sets by Aall & Create as I thought this one in particular worked really well with the dies.

Sizzix Eileen Hull Shadow Box dies on Create & Craft TV 19/20 May

Gosh I’m so excited for these shows. I have been so happy making all these projects. I have literally not left my craft studio the whole week I was making them except to eat and sleep!

So this is the Chapter 2 release from Eileen Hull, and unusually for her, this release doesn’t have any Bigz dies, there are 3 thinlit die sets, along with a stunning 3-D embossing folder called Crochet.

There are two sets that include the different size ‘sides’ to the shadow box. Shadow Box 1 allows you to create a small square frame, then Shadow Box 2 has a medium and large die, so you can create a landscape frame (as above). But of course, you can interchange the sizes, and say, just use the two longer sides of this one to create a larger square frame.

Then there’s a set called Shadow Box Elements that has some gorgeous little houses along with lots of other dies to decorate your frames. There are also extra elements in the frame sets.

I love the variety of elements in these sets, and the houses are just adorable. They are just as fabulous on cards as they are to create shadow boxes.

They also work so well with other die sets – for this square frame I used the largest shadowbox die and the Wild Blooms 1 die set.

I kind of replicated the project from the packaging photo for this one – it shows off all the little elements really nicely.

I’ve got lots more projects to share, so will pop back soon with more!

Sizzix Eileen Hull Shadow Box dies

Eileen has some beautiful dies in this latest Chapter 2 release from Sizzix. I haven’t had a chance to play with them properly yet, but I do have shows on Create and Craft in May with them, so I’m looking forward to making lots more projects.

For today though, this is the first project I’ve made.

I used the Shadowbox Frames #1 die set together with the Crochet Mandala embossing folder, and the ‘home’ label is from the Shadowbox Elements set.

I went for a very simple colour scheme for this one. As it was my first time working out how to use the shadowbox dies, I used some cream card to cut the frame. (Creative Expressions Coconut White card).

It’s so simple to put together, you just cut the die four times, then fold on the score lines, and add red line tape to the tabs. It literally takes seconds.

I decided to cut a piece of the same card for a background, embossed with the embossing folder. That way it also looks really pretty from the back.

Then I decided to decorate with flowers and leaves from the set, sticking with a really muted colour scheme. I added three flowers to the centre – two are popped up on foam tape to give some dimension, then I added some of the leaves to the corner of the frame, along with some little dots of Tonic Nuvo Drops to look like little shiny pearls.

For the Home label, I used the elements from the Shadowbox Elements die set, and inlayed the letters back into the label in a pale pink. I just love the colour combo of the pale pink and kraft card.

I can’t wait to start playing with the larger shadow box now. Especially since Sizzix have some lovely new cardstock in muted tones – I think it’s going to work so well with these dies.

I’ve listed all the products below, thanks for stopping by.

Eileen Hull Wrapped Journal

The challenge theme this month on the Eileen Hull Fanclub Facebook group is Fibres, Fabric and Felt.

I made this wrapped journal a while back so thought I’d share the details (you may have seen it on my Create & Craft shows on Monday).

To create the base for the journal, I used some green mountboard/matboard (I know it’s called mountboard here in the UK, but usually matboard in the States).

I’m in the UK, and I got a huge A2 sized sheet in a lovely green shade from Hobbycraft. I thought the green would look nice on the inside and contrast nicely with the grey.

Before adhering my felt to the mountboard I used my die as a rough guide. I placed it on the grey felt and drew around it with a marker pen, just so I had a rough idea of how much felt I would need. I also put little marks to indicate where the creases would be – I wanted my circles to go off the edge on each panel to give a kind of seamless look, but I obviously wanted the crease lines to not be right on the edge of a circle so I wouldn’t be left with a tiny sliver of felt that might come unstuck.

Next step was to die cut some circles from green felt. I used iron on adhesive to add these to the grey felt, then stitched them on both to add some nice detail, and to make sure they didn’t come unstuck over time.

I then added double sided adhesive sheet to the mountboard and attached the felt. (With hindsight, I should have added iron on adhesive to the back of the felt as I have since discovered this really helps stop the felt fraying). So if you fancy giving this a go, I’d advise adding iron on to the felt in addition to the adhesive sheet on the mountboard.

I then placed it face down on the die and cut to create my lovely journal.

Before adding the elastic cord for the notebooks, I used a hole punch to add a small hole in the spine so I could thread some cord through for a closure. I added a button on the inside so it would be secure, then tied some pretty felt balls to the end.

I used 1.5mm white elastic to thread through each of the spines, then cut down some cheap notebooks to fit (these were from Morrison’s supermarket – whenever I see cheap notebooks there reduced, I buy tons of them!). It’s easy to cut them to size with a good knife and a steel ruler.

Create & Craft TV shows – Eileen Hull favourites

Well, I’m very excited about my shows on Monday – two shows of literally all my favourite things! It’s the Best of Eileen Hull, so a bit of a round up of all her best selling dies.

As you know, I’m a huge fan of her journals, and on the show we’ve got the Folio and Wrapped Journals, which I guess are probably the most versatile of all because they have fold around elements you can use or cut off to create different styles of journal.

So first is the Folio Journal. This one has a flap at the front and back of the journal that wraps around, then, there’s a separate element that enables you to enclose that piece, to create like a little box type element which is great if you want to add in separate notebooks, or maybe even a gift.

What I also like about the Folio is that it’s a nice square size, so it really gives a nice area to decorate, and works really well with the various 3-D embossing folders.

Next is the Wrapped Journal. This one also has a wrap around element, but it folds all the way round from the back, making this one ideal for using with leather/fabric, because it doesn’t necessarily need to be a rigid design.

Next is the very fun, Camper die, this creates such a cute 3D camper, that has a kind of box inside, that you can use to add a gift. Of course, you can also use the camper element without making it into the full 3D version, it looks fabulous on a card or journal front.

Another fun 3-D die, this is the Post Box. A great one for creating little savings boxes for kids, of perhaps for a wedding for guests to post little messages. Of course you can also use it as a fun gift box.

This is the Display Stand. It’s perfect for displaying a calendar, or photos, but on this sample I added some magnetic sheet, so I could use it to pop on my desk and hold my thin metal dies while I work.

The Vintage Button embossing folder and Floral Contours dies have been included on the shows because they work so well with the various journals and other dies.

Phew, that’s a round up of most of the items on the show – I told you it was a great mix of faves!

My shows are on the 21st March at 12.00 and 5pm, so I hope you can join me!

Sizzix Eileen Hull Book Box

Today I’m sharing a little tutorial on this gift box/book, using the new Eileen Hull Book Box Bigz die.

It can be used to create journals, or a lovely box in a book, which is ideal for adding a gift to, or as I did in this case, some handmade cards.

I’ve listed below all the products used (with links), but of course, you can use whatever papers and materials you have to cover your journal.

  1. Take three pieces of Sizzix white Matboard and cover with double sided adhesive roll (I’m in the UK and buy my rolls from Crafty Devils, but you can find similar on Amazon).
  2. I covered two pieces of matboard with Mint Julep, then the other with Limoncello.
  3. Run the mint julep covered pieces through. This will give you two sets of each of the elements (because you will need two covers, and two sets to form the box. You can trim down the piece covered with Lemoncello so it just covers the spine section as that’s all you need from that (or you can cut it all and just save the extra pieces for other books).
  4. I used red line tape to attach the spine to the front and back cover, and to assemble and attach the box section. The easiest way I found to tape the box part is to lay them out end to end and tape them together.
  5. If you want to strengthen the box section, once you’ve assembled it and stuck it into the book, cut some strips of the mint julep texture roll, about 1 inch wide, then stick around the outside. It strengthens the box, but also makes it look neater.
  6. I cut another piece of mint julep texture roll to fit inside the box area, and embossed this with the new Vintage Buttons embossing folder. It just makes the inside a little neater as it covers up where the box is taped to the back cover.
  7. To decorate the cover, I kept it bright and simple with more texture roll. I used Primrose, Ballet Slipper and Limoncello, then some green cardstock for the leaves. I added my niece’s name using the Sizzix Handwritten Alphabet die. I find that using texture roll is a much better option when decorating journals, because it’s less likely to scuff or tear than cardstock, so if I have the right colour in texture roll, I’ll always use that in preference to card.
  8. For the notecard, I carried on the same design, and used a Mint Julep notecard so that it matched.

Hope this tutorial gives you some fresh ideas for using these gorgeous new dies. Don’t forget to check out the Eileen Hull Fan Club group on Facebook because there’s always a ton of inspiration there.

New Eileen Hull Sizzix Chapter One Blog hop

Theres a really fun blog hop happening today to celebrate the launch of Eileen Hull’s new Chapter One release.

You can find all the info on Eileen’s blog – http://www.eileenhull.com/ as well as links to all the blogs taking part in the hop.

There’s a giveaway too! If you leave a comment for each of the designers in the Release Party Hop, or during the Facebook Live or YouTube video, you will be eligible to win one of the newly released products! Tell us what your favourite new product is and what you plan to do with it! Thanks for hopping with us 🙂

I’ve made three projects for this hop – you’ll be able to see these projects in more detail as I’ll have them on my shows on Create & Craft on 16/17 Feb. I’ll also be popping back here later in the month with a tutorial on the Book Box.

So the first project is using the the lovely Book Box. This die creates a journal with box element inside, so it’s perfect for popping a gift into, it’s also the perfect size to put cards in, so I think it would be lovely to make some matching cards to go with the cover then give that as a nice present.

The next die I’m sharing today is called Snail Mail and it creates this really fun background for cards (or it fits nicely on the Book Box). You can also snip each element away (which you’ll see on my next project). This would work so well with different dies and stamps because it kind of creates little windows.

The last one I’m sharing today is an embossing folder called Vintage Buttons. It’s a 3D embossing folder so the detail is just amazing.

Don’t forget to pop to Eileen’s blog to see the rest of the release as well as all the amazing projects – http://www.eileenhull.com/
