TCW and Eileen Hull Crafty Collaboration Notepad Holder

Hi everyone! I’m back with my project I created for the TCW and Eileen Hull collab! I’m excited to get to try the Ocean Blue Stencil Butter for the first time along with the Petal Mandala Stencil and Uplifting Stamps. I choose the Notepad Diecut to use all these TCW products on so lets get started!

I had painted the outside of the covers for another project but changed my mind and decided to use the Ocean Blue Stencil Butter since it complemented the light green. I secured the stencil to the cover and used a Paint Knife to spread the Stencil Butter over the stencil.

I removed the stencil carefully from the cover.

I placed the stencil over the back cover and rubbed. It left a cool reverse design.

Next I added a blue watercolor splatter to a piece of Watercolor Paper and once dry, inked and stamped one of the butterflies from the Uplifting Stamps onto the paper.

I splattered watered down white and a teal paints on both covers and while that dried I cut a total of four “spines” with a half inch “flap” from the notepad die (sorry I didn’t get photos of that step…I was in a zone). I glued all together and cut to fit the bottom of the diecut. I covered the “spine” with patterned cardstock both inside and out before adhering the butterfly image to the front of the holder.

I finished off by adding a couple notepads to the holder. If you need more inspiration stop by Eileen Hull’s Blog for the latest and be sure to follow TCW on their blog which can be found HERE.
