Spring into Eileen Hull’s Chapter 2 Collection and Slimline Card Project

Hi everyone! It’s that time again to share with everyone Eileen Hull’s Chapter Two Collection!

You will love this set of dies! It is so versatile and works side by side your other journal dies and may be combined in endless combinations. There are three dies in the set: the Card Case, Mini-Slimline & Tickets and Journaling Card, Envelope & Windows. Buy all three dies and get FREE SHIPPING on your order in the US PLUS save an additional $10! Cost to buy dies individually is $122- buy the bundle and pay only $112. Outside US, $10 will be deducted from shipping. You can find the bundle HERE.

The Card Case is a Bigz XL ScoreBoards die. This die is specially designed to cut and score thick material up to 1/16″ like matboard, chipboard, leather, felt and fabric so your finished project is nice and sturdy. The finished Card Case die measures 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and has an adjustable spine that goes from 1/2″ to 2 1/2″. This is the perfect size journal to hold your 3″ x 4″ journaling cards, as well as other small items like wallet photos, ATCs and ephemera. There is a swing out flap on each side where you can add pockets or small insert books- you decide what combination you want to do. Make the spine thick or thin- your choice!

The Journaling Card, Envelope & Windows die has 6 pieces- an envelope, 3″ x 4″ Journaling Card, three window cutouts (use with envelope to remove and back with glassine like a window envelope) and a tab. The Envelope measures 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and fits perfectly inside the Journal! Or use it by itself and add your favorite ephemera pieces.

The Mini-Slimline & Tickets die design is similar to the Snail Mail die, which was very popular for creating faux postage stamps. There are four dies in the set- one is the size of a mini slimline card and one is a mat that may be placed behind the perforated piece. The other two pieces are a row of tickets and mat that goes behind that. When you fold over each perforated piece and tear it, it creates individual faux postage stamps and tickets! Die cut the piece from patterned paper for an amazing background- just add a sentiment and let the paper do the work.

There’s a giveaway too! Comment in the Facebook and YouTube streams and tell us which of Eileen’s other dies would work well with this collection. You have until April 10 to post your comments.

I also would like to share a quick card I made using the Mini Slimline and Tickets Thinlits Set and a few other of Eileen’s dies. So let’s get started!

First, I folded and placed a piece of Blue Cardstock slightly below the cut line of the Journal Diecut and run through the Diecut Machine. I used a 6″x6″ piece of patterned cardstock from my friend Pam Bray’s Cyan Consortium Paper Pack. Since the cardstock wouldn’t cover the card base I had the bright idea to piece together what had been cut and covered with the tickets that I had cut from the Mini Slimline and Tickets Thinlits. I also embossed some of the tickets with the Crochet Mandala 3D Embossing Folder.

I also dug into my stash and pulled out vintage tickets by 49 and Market (discontinued) and a sheet of cut a parts by Maggie Holmes. I fussy cut the little bunny from one of the cards in the cut a part, placed a wreath that I had cut from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits around it and adhered all the bits and pieces onto the card base.

I placed the “think happy” and “be happy” stickers (Maggie Holmes Garden Party) above and below the bunny and wreath.

I cut flowers and leaf sprigs from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits. I shaped with a Stylus, layered, added gems and a bow made out of cording to complete the card.
