How to Make a Diecut Holder with the Frame Pocket Journal Diecut

Hi everyone! I’m back with the full reveal of the sneak peek I shared last week for Eileen Hull’s Chapter One Release Party. Details from that release can be found on Eileen’s blog HERE with a video showing all of the teams projects. Instead of going the normal route and creating a journal with the Scoreboards Frame Pocket Journal Diecut I noted that this die would make a nice holder for thinlits, 6″x6″ or 6″x8″ paper pads. So let’s get started!

I applied Adhesive Sheets to both sides of Chipboard and placed patterned cardstock into the chipboard. I cut two covers and two side panels from the Scoreboards Frame Pocket Diecut. I folded the “spine” of both covers and the flaps of the panels. I “peeled”some of the chipboard from the flaps off (this helps the flaps to lay flatter) before adhering to each side of the journal. Since the “bottom” of the holder doesn’t butt up against each other I measured and cut a piece of chipboard and another piece of patterned cardstock and glued to the bottom inside. This adds re-enforcement to the bottom if added weight such as thinlits or paper pads are placed inside.

To decorate the outside of the holder I pulled a decorative chipboard shape from my stash and placed into the Tablecloth 3D Embossing Folder and run through the Diecut Machine. I lightly inked over the embossed area with a tan chalk ink. I used the “closure” from the Full Size Journal Diecut as a label. I adhered both to the front of the holder. I placed an adhesive sheet onto a piece of cardstock and cut out the letters to spell “Eileen” from the Alphanumeric Thinlit and placed onto the label. I cut, shaped and put together flowers, leaves and vines from the following thinlits: Folio Page Pocket and Flowers and Shadow Box Elements Thinlits.

I added gems to the center of each flowers and adhered to onto the label along with leaves, vines and a butterfly that I had fussy cut from a patterned piece of cardstock.

I glued decorative “feet’ to the bottom of the holder to finish. It’s perfect to hold ALL the Eileen Hull thinlits so they are all in one place.

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.

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.

Happy Holidays Poinsettia Cards

Hi everyone and Happy first day of December! I want to share a couple of cards I created using leftover scraps and cardstock from Blank Page Muse by Pam Bray’s Tattered and Worn 6″x6″ Paper Pad. Let’s get started!

For the first card I folded the black and white dotted cardstock from the Tattered and Worn Paper Pad in half to create a 3″x6″ card base. I cut a 7/8″x6″(scrap of green cardstock from the Cyan Consortium 6″x6″ Paper Pad) and a 3/4″x6″ patterned cardstock and adhered to the card base.

Next, I punched out a circle from patterned cardstock, inked around the circle and placed glue in the center of the circle before placing onto the card base.

I cut out four poinsettias from Watercolor Paper and holly from Green Cardstock from a Christmas set of thinlits by Momenta. I lightly inked over the edges of all the flowers and holly, three of those flowers and the rest of the holly will be used on the next card. I glued the holly to the back of the poinsettia before placing in the center of the circle.

I placed three gold gems in the center of the flower, added Foam Pop Dots to the back of a Happy Holidays sentiment before placing onto the card base. Lastly I added loops of gold thread under the circle to finish this card.

The second card I did the same steps with the same cardstock from the Worn and Tattered Paper Pad to create a card base. I cut a patterned piece of cardstock 1/2″x6″ and adhered to the card base.

I glued the holly to the back of each poinsettia, added gold gems to the center of each along with loops of gold thread before placing onto the card base. I finished off by adding foam pop dots to the back of the sentiment before placing underneath the poinsettias.

My plan is to share a project everyday for the next 24 or 25 days…fingers crossed. That being said please stop back by the blog tomorrow for another Christmas inspired project!

How to Create a Decorative Geometric Pumpkin

Hi everyone! I’m back with a project I created to be used as a home decor piece using the Geometric Diecut and the center die from the Sunflower Diecut as a flower. Let’s get started!

First, I applied Adhesive Sheets to one side of the Mat Board, removed the protective sheet from the adhesive sheet and carefully placed the patterned cardstock into the mat board. I placed onto the Geometric Diecut, ran through the Diecut Machine and cut two sides and two tops.

I slowly glued the edges of the geometric die to the top and bottom dies.

The second geometric die I adhered to the flap of the other die and slowly glued to the top and bottom of the dies to create the “pumpkin”.

I went to the woods and searched for the perfect “stem” for the pumpkin. I found a small branch and had my husband use a handsaw to cut it down for me.

I adhered the stem to the top of the “pumpkin” before cutting out two centers from the Sunflower Diecut. I crushed both dies before shaping and gluing on top of each other. I added a gem to the center, before adding to the top of the pumpkin along with lace, fall berries picks, mini pinecones, moss and cording bows.

This was a fun project that came together rather quickly and I hope this has inspires you to give the Geometric Diecut a try.

How to Create a Festive Floral Christmas Gift Bag

Hi everyone! Can you believe that Christmas is right around the corner? I can’t but I can say I’m a little ahead of the game and have a few holiday projects created ahead of time. This first project I want to share is for the 3rd Annual Comfort and Joy Event hosted by Eileen Hull. I up-cycled a cloth bag that a set of pillow cases came in and turned it into a gift bag for Christmas. I used the Sunflower Diecut to create my version of a poinsettia. Let’s get started!

First, I cut out the flowers and leaf out of paper from the Sunflower Die.

I used two of the smaller flowers and the leaf as a patterned to cut the felt slightly larger than the pattern.

I cut two of each of the flowers, total of four, and two leaves. I layered and adhered the flowers on top of each other. I did cut a set in a cream and peach color that I plan on using in another project (stay tuned).

The leaf I added a little glue to the center and pinched together.

Next I cut and tied in the center yellow embroidery thread and unwound. I adhered to the back of a flat back pearl, glued to the center of the flower and the leaf to the back of the flower. I also cut out a couple of hollies from green felt from the Funky Festive Thinlits and added.

I used an assortment of metallic threads, green thread, gold ribbons, gold vines, pom pom trim and red berry sprays to “bling” out the flower.

I have managed to acquire a collection of these fabric bags but never really knew what to do with them but now I do.

Once everything dried I adhered the flower below the elastic on the bag and let that dry well.

I added a body wash to the bag and now my first Christmas present is wrapped! YAY!

But sure to stop by Eileen Hull’s blog and see what her team has been up to! You can find the latest posts HERE and HERE.
