Hi everyone! We need some fun in our lives so all of us at Eileen Hull Designs put our heads together and came up with an event that you can participate in as much or as little as you’d like. It’s a challenge of sorts and we’d like to see you to make a Holiday Journal for this season using any of Eileen Hull Design’s book dies. Your journal could include activities, photos, recipes, shopping lists, daily thoughts, etc. Really, it can include anything you want; after all, it’s your journal!
Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday between November 27th and December 23rd there will be a post in the Eileen Hull Fan Club from one of Eileen’s team members with a prompt for a journal page. These prompts are meant to get your creative thoughts flowing and give you page ideas for your Holiday Journal. It might be in the form of a blog post, Facebook Live, recorded quick video, or a Facebook post in the group. It’s up to you to take it from there and we can’t wait to see what you come up with, so please share your covers and pages with us in the Eileen Hull Fan Club. If you aren’t a member request to join and be sure to answer the questions so you can be approved.
Today is my day to share a page in my Christmas Memories Journal for day 10 of the Comfort and Joy Event. If you missed the journal blog post you can find all the details on how I created that journal HERE.
Since I live in the South it is rare I get play in the snow or building a snowman. I thought I would created a “build a snowman” shaker page using the Christmas Box Snowman Diecut and Album Page Insert to create a shaker pocket.
I started by cutting off the edge of the album page insert with the holes and folding in half. If you don’t have these type of page inserts you can also use the inserts that baseball and football cards are stored in.
I cut two of the snowmen diecuts out of patterned cardstock and adhered back to back. You can use a double side cardstock but the one I selected was red in color on one side and a red snowman just didn’t look right. I cut out two of each: scarves, carrot noses and arms and assembled the snowman. I added black gems for the eyes and buttons for one side and a fussy cut poinsettia for the other side of the snowman.
I cut and applied Double Sided Adhesive to the inside edge of each pocket.
I added an assortment of clear glitter, sequins and snowflake sequins to the larger pockets before adding the snowman and a snowflake ornament. I peeled the backing from the adhesive and sealed.
The smaller pockets I did the same steps before adding the toboggan and hat to the pockets. The center pocket since it folded in the center I only added glitter and sequins.
I cover the adhesive strip with washi tape. Here’s a tip if the washi tape doesn’t want to stick to the pocket you can add adhesive to keep it in place.
There you have it! I hope you have a chance to make one for yourselves. As always if you have questions please let me know.
If you aren’t a member of Eileen Hull’s Fan Club be sure to answer the questions when you join so you can follow along in the Comfort and Joy Event and see what everyone else in the group is creating! It really is a fun group to be a part of!
