Eileen Hull Chapter 1 Release & Blog Hop

Hurray it is Chapter 1 Release time!!! The Eileen Hull teams are at it again with a fabulous blog hop filled with inspiration & wonder! Check below for all the details followed by some more sneak peaks. I will be back with a tutorial.

*Affiliate- some of these companies have given me product to use, play & experiment with. The ideas are my own but I tend to work with companies whose products I like so enjoy the inspiration.  **some of these links are affiliate, I receive a small percentage from the company at no cost to you. This helps me deliver free content!

The Folio Journal die cut is fabulous as the base of my project & there are so many different ways to use it as you will see as you hop along! I settled on making a Junk Journal, although I also have a fabric book in the works. On the cover you can see the Mandala Thinlet was used. Links to products below. 

Welcome to the Chapter 1 Eileen Hull/Sizzix Release Party Blog Hop! Just wait till you see all of the fun options the new Score Boards Folio Journal die has in store for you! You will also love the Mandala and Folio Page, Pockets and Flower Thinlits dies that coordinate ❤
Please hop through the blogs and be inspired by the work of the talented Inspiration and Educator teams! Leave a comment for each designer and you could win a Folio Journal die (as soon as it arrives!)
Join me and specials guests for a Facebook Live on Wednesday, Feb. 3 at noon Eastern. Comment on our Facebook Live and be eligible to win either the Mandela die or the Folio Pages, Pockets and Flowers die- two winners!
Winners will be announced on the Facebook Live show on February 9 at 6:00 EST.
Be sure to join Eileen & a few special surprise guests on her Facebook Live at noon EST today Feb. 3rd. 

Hot tip: if you want to get a peak & maybe a wee flip of my book tune into the Live. The links to the hop are below, if you get lost you can always come back here or go to Eileen's Blog. 

Let's Have a Few Peeks.

This book spine has 5 signatures but I made mine with 4. Like Eileen's other book dies, there is the option to use elastic so the signatures can be pulled in & out. You can also bind the book, permanently through the holes that are in the spine for example.
 
 
For the spine I made a removable ribbon cluster. I love these! I left room to add some more charms as I build my book. 
 
 
Here is the front inside of my book, you can see the page pocket from the thinlet die, so handy!


Here is the front of the 1st signature.  I used lots of gel prints in this book & left overs from other projects. It feels so good to use up my stash. Again come back to see my full tutorial. You can follow my blog to be notified for new posts. Thanks so much for joining the teams on this exciting day. I hope we see you in the Facebook Live, if you miss it you can always watch on replay!
