Condensed Snowflake December Daily Journal Reveal

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with the full reveal of my December Daily using Eileen Hull’s Full Size Journal Diecut. My motto it’s never to early to start working on a Christmas project…it’s my favorite time of year. So let’s get started!

All I had was the 6″x13″ Mat Board so I decided I would create a traveler’s notebook since I had notebooks on hand. Well, after applying Adhesive Sheets to both sides of the mat board and file folders to either side I cut two covers. One was a little off so I was going to even it up with my Paper Cutter…the cover slipped so I wound up cut both sides down to 3 1/2″ wide. Before adhesive the spine together I “peeled” one of the indented pieces of the spine off so the spine would be flat.

I cut a piece of polka dotted cardstock and adhered to the cover. Next I cut the circle from the Ornament Box Diecut and snowflake from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits and glued to the bottom corner of the journal.

I dressed up the snowflake with a mini snowflake ornament (I cut the hanger off), sequins, round and snowflakes, flatback pearls and the edges of the front and back covers I adhered Pom Pom Trim and gold Ric Rac.

Next I set eyelets in each hole before stringing elastic inside the journal and cut and placed cut patterned cardstock, notebook, accounting and dotted papers to create the inside signature.

I will probably add more pages to it later as I go but for now it is finished. Be sure to stop by Eileen Hull’s blog to check the latest creation from the Inspiration and Educator Teams. You can find those posts HERE and HERE.

If you have any questions about this project let me know.

Lets Party with Eileen Hull’s Chapter 4 Release!

Hi everyone! Today is the day! The Chapter 4 Sizzix Release is exciting for so many reasons- there are two never-done-before designs! One is the Full Size Journal which is a Bigz Pro size- you will need a machine with at least a 9″ throat to cut this die- like a Big Shot Plus or Pro. Not to worry- if you don’t have that machine, Eileen will have the pre-cut pieces available in her Etsy store for you to work with. The other new technology is a 3D Embossing Folder! It’s called Sweater and is oh so cozy. Also new this release is a Bigz Notepad die with lots of options for materials and uses, and a Heart Mandala Thinlits to decorate with!

I chose to create a “condensed” December Daily with the Full Size Journal Diecut. Later this month I will share the full reveal of my journal…so be sure to come back later in the month!

Also there is a GIVEAWAY too- leave a comment on each of the designers’ blog posts and you will be entered to win one of the new dies! Details can be found on Eileen’s blog HERE. Another prize will be given to someone who attends and comments in the Release Party Facebook Live.

Chapter 4 Release Party Blog Hop: Lets Party Album!

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to be a part of Eileen Hull’s Chapter 4 Release Party! There are two new ScoreBoards releases from Eileen Hull and Sizzix! Are you ready for a new 3D Bigz L Tea Cup die? It can be filled with teabags and other assorted goodies or use the Tea Cup cutout on the front of a card there are so many possibilities. Also new is the XL Post Box, a fun little box that goes together in 10 seconds and has a slit in the top to tuck a gift card. You will have fun embellishing in your style to create holiday treats for everyone on your list!

I used the Teacup and Spoon Diecut to create a fun little Birthday Party Album along with several of Eileen’s older diecuts (several that are retired): Banners and Pennants, Bookplate, Hinges and Label, Credit Card Sleeve and Tags and Sweet Treats for You Diecuts.

I cut out six tea cups, backed two with Chipboard to make the front and back covers sturdy, from the Let’s Celebrate Collection. Also most of the collection is double sided.

I also cut out two of the “walls” (lack of a better word) and cut “flaps” off and adhered together to create little pockets for some of the inside pages.

The tea bag diecuts I cut out several and added thread bows and I cut banners out from the Banners and Pennants Diecuts and placed on top of the tea bag diecut and stapled together.

I decorated the cover and inside with a mix of diecuts. I also fussy cut a ton of images from the paper pad and added sequins and pearls to the pages.

I cut several pieces of lace, Ric Rac and fiber and tied all of the teacup together to finish the album. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

To hop along with the Chapter 4 Release you can find the rest of the Inspiration Team and Educators projects HERE.
