Making An Eileen Hull Journal Out Of Resin

Hi Resin Fans, I have a 2 part Resin project tutorial for you over on the Resin Obsession blog. This is such a cool project & I was so excited that it worked!!! I challenged myself to make a journal book using resin to create it, die cut & have it be the base of the cover. 


Resin Journal with Wings!

Here is my finished project. As a designer I have made a lot of projects over the years but I have to say this is one of my favorites. It took some time but it was so worth it! 




Die Cutting with Resin

Part 1 of the project has directions for making the cover out of resin, how to die cut it & how to string it together. I I used Eileen Hull's Wrap Journal die which is perfect for this project but you could also use any of her other journal dies as well. The tutorial for creating the base of the book is here. 




Part 2 shows how I made the wings using resin, a mold & Resin Obsession pigments for color. It teaches how to complete the cover including tips for a closure & working on a transparent surface. The results are a unique book with 4 signatures, that can be used for anything. The tutorial covers adding magnet closures as well as tips & tricks to adhering resin onto resin! You can find part 2 here.

Thanks for looking & I hope you have a chance to go check out my tutorial!! Resin is so much fun to play with & the possibilities for making these books is only limited by your imagination! 



I am entering this book in the Mini Album Maker's contest. If you haven't seen this blog there is tons of awesome inspiration over there so I hope you check it out!

  1. Wow, wow and wow again Karen. I enjoyed part 1 so much and I loved seeing part 2 where you finish off your mini album. It is remarkable at how well Resin holds up to die cutting and I just love how you coloured the Resin too. A fabulous experiment that turned out beautifully!

    Whilst I am here, can I just say thank you for joining in with us at Mini Album Makers this month! Hugs, Anne xx
