A Faithful Friend Tag

Hi everyone! It’s hard to believe the month is almost gone. I set some “loose yearly goals” for this coming year where I would like to at least do four blog posts a month…preferably more. Well, this is my fourth post of the month…yay!

Anyways, I would like to share a tag I created using the largest tag from the Tag Collection Thinlits by Tim Holtz and the 3D Silverware Embossing Folder by Eileen Hull. Let’s get started!

I cut from Kraft Cardstock the largest tag and the reinforcer from the Tag Collection Thinlits. I placed the tag into the 3D Silverware Embossing Folder and run through the Diecut Machine. Next, I applied Rose Gold Luster Wax over the embossed image on the tag and a soft blue chalk ink to add a weathered look to the tag.

I dug into my scrap pile of cardstock, rough upped the edges of the larger piece and added two smaller patterned pieces of cardstocks (the larger cardstock piece slightly hung off the tag while the other two pieces of cardstock were placed under the larger piece) and adhered all to the base of the tag.

I had a scrap piece of the Skinny Mini Elements Thinlits that I tore and placed onto the tag. I selected the two women diecut from the Mini Paper Dolls Pack and glued to the tag along with a scrap of sheer fabric. I picked the “A faithful friend” sentiment from the Clippings Cardstock Stickers and placed above the women. I cut two flowers and a leaf sprig from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits, shaped with a Stylus, adhered the flowers on top of each other and glued the leaf sprig to the back of the flower before adding to the tag. I finished by placing a Glossy Dot in the center of the flower and gluing a vintage button to the tag.

Eileen Hull Chapter One Release 2023 Style!

Hi everyone and Happy New Year! It’s time again for a new release by Eileen Hull and I’m super excited about it. There’s so many possibilities with this collection and, of course, with my project I didn’t use the diecut the way it was original suppose to be used. I’m only sharing a tease and will post a full reveal later on in the month. So let’s get started!

Let’s start with the ScoreBoards Frame Pocket Journal– this is a Bigz Plus die so you will need a 9” cutting machine. The Journal measures 4 1/2” x 6 1/2” x 1 1/4” with an adjustable spine. What makes this die special are the additional pieces on the die, a pocket to hold ephemera, a frame and flap! These extra pieces may be used in many of my other journals or they can be used independently. The die may also be configured in a few different ways so watch the blog and Facebook live shows for ideas.

There are two Thinlits sets that coordinate with the Journal. You asked for a new alphabet- you got it- and I added numbers too! The Tile Alphanumeric is very versatile because you can use both the positive and negative shapes. Each letter is perforated which makes it easy to create and line up words.

The other Thinlits set is the Library Pocket, ATC Card and Tab Thinlits– a journal essential! Use the ATC card die to knock out a bunch of Artist Trading Card bases and add the library pocket to package it up to swap. The Tab die is perfect to add to the Journal pages or on the ATC.

The last item is a 3D embossing folder called Tablecloth which was inspired by a crocheted cotton piece from my Mom. This adds beautiful texture and dimension to card backgrounds, book pages or tags!

There will also be a giveaway so make sure to watch our live on Facebook and/or YouTube. Comment in the chat and tell us what you would create with these dies, then you will be eligible to win a Chapter 1 die/embossing folder! Also be sure to stop by Eileen’s blog which you can find it HERE.

Let’s Make a Snowman Card with the Skinny Mini Book Box Diecut

Hi everyone! I’m back today with card I created using my very own Sparkles Snowman Happy Holidays Stamp Set. You can find it over at Blank Page Muse HERE. It’s still a pinch me moment that I actually have a stamp set! I also used the Skinny Mini Book Box and a few other thinlits, embossing folder and etc. which I’ll share as I get more into making this card. Let’s get started!

First off, I folded a piece of cardstock in half and placed slightly below the cut line on the Skinny Mini Book Box and run through the Diecut Machine.

I used several scraps of plain and patterned cardstock and adhered to the front of the card base. I cut a strip of cardstock and placed into the 3D Crochet Mandala Embossing Folder and run through the diecut machine. I lightly inked over the raised edges before gluing to the card base.

I placed the snowman face and sentiment onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with Black Ink and stamped onto a piece Watercolor Paper and cut out both.

I watercolored the snowman and once dry added Stickles to the image.

Next I matted the snowman image before adding to the card base and placed a White Diamond Dotz on each eye.

I cut out several snowflakes from the following thinlits and diecut: Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits, Doodle Christmas Thinlits and 3D Impresslits Snowflake Diecut (retired). I added one snowflake to the base before gluing the matted snowman on top of that.

I layered two of the snowflakes, added Foam Pop Dots to the backs of two and placed onto the base. I glued the smaller snowflake directly to the base, added gems to the center of each one.

I finished by matting the sentiment and adhering underneath the snowman image and adding loops of metallic to the snowflakes.

My Three Favorite 2022 Eileen Hull Projects

Hi everyone! I’m back with another blog post and today I share my top three favorite Eileen Hull projects of 2022. I did have a hard time narrowing it down. But after going back and forth with the eight posts I selected I did finally picked the three that I loved the most. Let’s get started!

These are in no particular order, but I love a good recycle/up-cycle project and this project checked all the boxes for me. I used an empty Laughing Cow Cheese container and the Vintage Buttons 3D Embossing Folder and the Mandala Thinlit as the bases for this home decor piece. You can find this post HERE.

The next project is another home decor piece and I loved the fact I got to incorporate the Shadow Box Frames Set 2 Thinlits, Skinny Mini Elements Thinlit and the Sunflower Diecut to create this. You can find that post HERE.

The last project is another recycle/up-cycle project that I used an empty ribbon spool as a base and used a wide assortment of dies and thinlits such as the Ornament Box Diecut, Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits, Vintage Truck Box Diecut, Shadow Box Frames Set 2 Thinlits and Shadow Box Elements Thinlits. You can find this post HERE.

A Beary Merry Christmas Cork Journal

Hi everyone! I’m super excited to share this project with y’all. Eileen Hull’s teams were sent a package of Surfaces Cork Roll from Sizzix to create something using Eileen’s dies, thinlits and embossing folders. I used the Notepad Diecut, Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits, the label from the Card Caddy Diecut and the hinge from the Treasure Box Diecut (retired) along with some other thinlits and embossing folders from Olivia Rose and Tim Holtz. Let’s get started!

First, I gathered up all my supplies before starting.

I applied Adhesive Sheets to both side of a piece of Mat Board, cut the cork and a piece of cardstock to fit the mat board. Next I placed the diecut onto the mat board and run through the Diecut Machine. I cut the cover twice.

I placed the journal cover into the 3D Tree Rings Embossing Folder but could not get it to run through the diecut machine, which sent me into a mini panic. But after much tinkering I used two sets of cutting plates and a crease pad to emboss both covers.

I peeled the cork and mat board away from one of the tabs on the spine.

This will make the spine have a “flat” look once it is glued together.

I used a combination of chalk inks on the cover and I also applied with my finger Rose Gold Luster Wax in random spots.

I picked three different shades of green from the Surfacez Eclectic Color Collection and cut three wreaths from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits. I cut two “open” and wove them through the wreath that I didn’t cut and adhered to the cover.

From the same paper collection I cut out all the parts for the bear from the Doodle Christmas Thinlits and used a combo of adhesive sheets and adhesive to piece together.

I lightly inked over parts of the bear and adhered to the cover.

I punched two holes in the top and bottom of the spine with a Crop-A-Dile and set eyelets into each hole before stringing elastic cording through the holes and tying off.

I covered with cardstock a label from the Card Caddy Diecut and the hinge from the Treasure Box Diecut and adhered on top of each other before gluing to the spine.

For the booklets inside the journal I had an A6 plain planner notebook but it was too tall. No problem!

I measured and cut the notebook in half (2 7/8″) and I also added a bit of glue to the stitches on each end of each book to keep it from coming undone.

I covered each book with a festive Christmas cardstock and added a present and a tree from the Doodle Christmas Thinlits and seals from the Prize Ribbons Diecut (retired) onto each book.

I’m not sure if I’ll make a December Daily out of this or use as glue book? What would you use it as?

How to Alter a Jumbo Wintery Themed Paper Clip

Hi everyone! Have you ever wondered what to do with those jumbo paper clips that you see in the office and craft sections in store? I will show you how I altered this paper clip, using a good portion of leftovers from other projects that was on my desk, into a book mark or as a closure to a bag/gift. Let’s get started!

First, I cut to size a scrap piece of bluish cardstock from the Making Essentials Cardstock Pack to fit the paper clip. I placed one end of the cardstock into the Crochet Mandala 3D Embossing Folder and run through the Diecut Machine.

I lightly inked over the raised embossed areas, folded the non embossed area of the cardstock and slid the cardstock through the paper clip.

I added adhesive to the lower half of the non embossed flap and glued to the back of the embossed cardstock. Side note…you want the “banner” to still move freely on the paper clip so don’t glue directly to the paper clip.

I cut two small strips of glittered tulle, gathered together and staples in the middle. Side note…glue would have been a lot messier. Also I don’t think I will ever buy glitter tulle again. I left a glitter trail everywhere I moved. YIKES!

I had a leftover strip of cardstock that I embossed with a Polka Dot Embossing Folder (retired), adhered the tulle to the backside of that and then glued to the banner.

I had two leftover banners that I had cut from the Geometric Box Diecut so I decided to cut the top off of each and adhered both to the top of the banner. Another side note (apparently I’m full of them today) I had used the those shapes to created a cool little treat box for Eileen Hull’s Comfort and Joy 2022 Kickoff Event (only $20). It’s over 8 hours of different designers sharing projects to make. If you are interested you can find the link HERE to purchase. Also I cut two Snowflakes from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits and glued those on top of each other before adding to the banner.

I cut two snowflakes from the 3D Impresslits Snowflake Diecut (retired). The smaller snowflake I lightly inked over the raised edges of the die, added a Foam Pop Dot to the back before placing on top of the larger snowflake. I also added a sequin and gems to the center of the snowflake, glued a bow to the side and added lace to geometric shaped banner.

The larger snowflake I did the same steps as with the smaller snowflake but glued directly to the banner. While I was cleaning up my craft room I came across this half sheet of snowmen that I had stamped out multiple times. I decided to fussy cut all out and use as needed. I have no idea who made the stamp and if I find out I will update my supply list. I added a foam pop dots to the back of the snowman before placing onto the lower half of the banner. I also glued a cord bow underneath the snowman to finish.

I think it turned out pretty good considering I was, for the most part, using what I had laying on my desk. I tried it out on a book and I think it look great. I also think you could use this to keep a Christmas bag closed to give as a gift.

December 25th Caddy Box

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a box I created as a companion piece for the Jolly Old St. Nicholas Notepad I shared yesterday. You can find that post HERE. I used Eileen Hull’s Card Caddy Diecut along with a couple of other dies/thinlits. So let’s get started!

First, I applied Adhesive Sheets to both sides of a piece of Mat Board and placed patterned cardstock to both sides before cutting out one box and two sides.

To make the sides lay flush on the inside of the box I “peeled” the mat board from the tabs.

I adhered the bottom tab on the side panels to each side of the box.

Next I added adhesive to each of the longer tabs and glued each side of the box into place.

Now for the fun part…adding embellishments! I cut and intertwined two wreaths from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits along with raiding my stash of Christmas ephemera and embellishments and decorated one side of the caddy.

I also added a Santa that I had fussy cut from scrapbook paper (I did the same for the notepad) and glued the word “Christmas” to the label that’s included with the Caddy Card Diecut and a poinsettia to finish.

The notepad fits perfectly inside the box! Also as a side note you can create a journal from the Caddy Card Box. Maybe one day I will get around to making one?

Jolly Old St. Nicholas Notepad

Hi everyone! I’m back with a quick project I created for Eileen Hull using the Ornament Box Diecut, Woven Leather 3D Embossing Folder and leaf sprigs from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits. This would make a great gift along with a pretty ink pen for the person who likes to take notes or make lists. Anyways, let’s get started!

First, I measured the notepad to get the dimensions, my notepad measures 5″x8″ but I added around another 2 inches onto the 8 inch side before cutting a piece of Red Cardstock for the cover.

Next, I folded and glued the flap onto the back of the notepad. I had a strip of patterned cardstock leftover from another project that I added to the flap to dress it up.

For the cover I cut from a Mint Green Cardstock one Skinny Mini Elements Thinlit along with a piece patterned cardstock slightly larger than the die and adhered both to the cover. I punched a three inch circle from patterned cardstock and cut a circle from the Ornament Box Diecut and then embossed with the Woven Leather 3D Embossing Folder. I lightly sanded over the raised edges of the embossed edges.

Before gluing both circles to the flap I added two strips of cardstock, as banners down the side of the Skinny Mini Elements die.

I fussy cut a Santa from a piece of scrapbook paper and added him to the side of the embossed circle. A patterned piece of cardstock and the “Jolly Old St. Nicholas” sentiment (that I cut from scrapbook paper) I glued across the embossed circle.

I dug into my stash of Christmas embellishments and found pre-cut poinsettias. I cut out four leaf sprigs from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits, shaped with a Stylus and adhered around the side of the embossed circle along with the poinsettia which I added a gem to the center to finish off this project.

Hopefully this project will give you ideas not only for Christmas but for other occasions too.

Silverware and Roses Card

Hi everyone! I’m back with a quick card I created using Eileen Hull’s Chapter 4 release…that happened earlier this week. I used the Silverware Embossing Folder, the center die of the Sunflower from the Sunflower Diecut and the label stamp from the Making Plans Stamp Set to create this card. So let’s get started!

First off, I cut a piece of Cream Cardstock to fit into the Silverware Embossing Folder and ran through the Diecut Machine. I applied Rose Gold Luster Wax over the embossed areas. I added a little tan chalk ink to give it a softer look.

I cut a strip of patterned cardstock and adhered to the middle of the embossed area. I cut out, inked the edges of the center of the Sunflower Diecut and glued onto the strip.

I added a piece of patterned cardstock as a mat to the embossed image before placing onto the card base. I also fussy cut roses from a piece of patterned cardstock, stamped a label from the Making Plans Stamp Set and adhered those to the card base. I finished off by adding the “dreams come true” sentiment sticker from the Clipping Stickers Book onto the label and two Diamond Dotz: Shade 7004 on either side of the sentiment.

Eileen Hull’s Chapter 4 Sunflower Shadow Box Reveal

Hi everyone! Eileen Hull’s Chapter 4 release is finally here and I’m so excited!

The Geometric Box is a different kind of design for Eileen. I love the ease of assembly, the unique shape and and the possibility of expanding the box into larger containers! This is a ScoreBoards die so it may be cut from sturdy materials like matboard, chipboard, metal, leather and fabric. The finished box measures 4” h x 3” w x 4” d…or so…a fun feature of this die is that it adapts to how you shape it. There are so many possibilities with this die.

Use the Geometric Box for storage-for pencils, silverware, flowers, or tools. The box may also be used as a gift container-imagine adding teabags, a pretty silver spoon and a bow as a get well gift or as a home decor piece (wait until you see one of my upcoming projects)!

The Sunflower is a Bigz L steel rule die-designed to cut and score a myriad of materials. The Sunflower is BIG- it measures about 4″ across and comes with a leaf, three sizes of petals and a flower center! Stack layers of petals to make a traditional sunflower, or change colors and create a pink coneflower or use easy flower shape to create a unique floral arrangement. The basic shape is there for you to create your own flowers! Make a stem for the flower using wire and your Twist and Style Tool. The coordinating Geometric Box die works perfectly as a vase.

The whimsical patterns of vintage cutlery of the Silverware 3D Embossing Folder is gorgeous! The design is so detailed you can actually see a tiny bride and groom on the handle of a cake server.

This folder is perfect for creating seating charts, menus, invitations, cards and recipe books. You would be surprised at the many materials you can emboss- metal, paper, cardboard, Sizzix texture roll and more. Once you have embossed the image, rub a light coat of a metallic Luster Wax over the top of the design and you have an amazing result!

I hope you will give these dies a try. Please remember to share them in the Eileen Hull Fan Club Facebook group so we can all be inspired!

My first project from this release I used the Sunflower Diecut along with the Shadow Box Frames Set 2 Thinlits and the Skinny Mini Elements Thinlit from past releases. So let’s get started!

First off, I cut out four of the smaller frame sides from the Shadow Box Frames Set 2 Thinlits and put together according to directions. Side note…Eileen Hull has a few videos on YouTube and on her Facebook Lives where she shares how to put these together. I cut out the Skinny Mini Thinlit, inked the edges and then tore pieces off of the diecut image to give it a tattered look. I crumpled scraps of patterned cardstock before adhering, both the die and scraps and scraps of lace, to the inside of the shadow box.

I pulled yellow, dark yellow, green and brown cardstock from the Eclectic Surfacez Cardstock Collection and cut two sets each of the large and middle flowers and one center and leaf from the Sunflower Diecut. I inked the edges of each and shaped the flowers (including the center) and leaf with a Stylus. I glued all pieces together. I watered down black, gray and white acrylic painted, loaded a paint brush with each color and splattered paint onto the sunflower.

To raise the sunflower up off of the shadow box I added three layers of Adhesive Foam before placing onto the box.

I placed some glittered sprays, tree twigs and bows made from cording under the sunflower to finish off this home decor piece.

Also be sure to join Eileen on her Facebook Page for her live at 12:00 noon eastern time October 3rd, 2022. You can find that link HERE. The best part besides seeing the new dies is there’s a giveaway! Be sure to comment on the Release Party video and answer this question, “What would you create with these dies?” Eileen and the team would love to hear all your amazing ideas!
