Eileen Hull Chapter 2 Designs For Sizzix!

It is that time again! Eileen Hull Chapter 2 Designs for Sizzix time! This is a wonderful release & of course we have a blog hop for you with all the inspiration you are used to. Details to follow.

I did a lot of envelope play with the Journaling Card, Envelope & Windows. A mini supply list is below. As my tutorials arrive over the next few months they will be accompanied by a more detailed list. My 1st project is a super cool Junk Journal Ephemera Keeper. I also made some zesty decorated envelopes. The envelopes fit perfectly in the Wrap Journal using the Book Binding die to hold them. See a close up of my journal below.

 In Eileen's words:

Introducing the Ch. 2 2023 Eileen Hull/Sizzix collection!
You will love this set of dies! It is so versatile and works side by side your other journal dies and may be combined in endless combinations. There are three dies in the set: the Card Case, Mini-Slimline & Tickets and Journaling Card, Envelope & Windows. Buy all three dies and get FREE SHIPPING on your order in the US PLUS save an additional $10! Cost to buy dies individually is $122- buy the bundle and pay only $112. Outside US, I will deduct $10 from shipping.
The Card Case is a Bigz XL ScoreBoards die. This die is specially designed to cut and score thick material up to 1/16" like matboard, chipboard, leather, felt and fabric so your finished project is nice and sturdy. The finished Card Case die measures 4 1/2" x 3 1/2" and has an adjustable spine that goes from 1/2" to 2 1/2". This is the perfect size journal to hold your 3" x 4" journaling cards, as well as other small items like wallet photos, ATCs and ephemera. There is a swing out flap on each side where you can add pockets or small insert books- you decide what combination you want to do. Make the spine thick or thin- your choice!
The Journaling Card, Envelope & Windows die has 6 pieces- an envelope, 3" x 4" Journaling Card, three window cutouts (use with envelope to remove and back with glassine like a window envelope) and a tab. The Envelope measures 4 1/2" x 3 1/2" and fits perfectly inside the Journal! Or use it by itself and add your favorite ephemera pieces.
The Mini-Slimline & Tickets die design is similar to the Snail Mail die, which was very popular for creating faux postage stamps. There are four dies in the set- one is the size of a mini slimline card and one is a mat that may be placed behind the perforated piece. The other two pieces are a row of tickers and mat that goes behind that. When you fold over each perforated piece and tear it, it creates individual faux postage stamps and tickets! Die cut the piece from patterned paper for an amazing background- just add a sentiment and let the paper do the work.
There's a giveaway too! Comment in the Facebook and YouTube streams and tell us which of Eileen's other dies would work well with this collection. You have until April 10 to post your comments.
Watch my YouTube channel to see die assembly and project ideas! I also do two livestreams each week on Facebook and YouTube-sharing more ideas on how to to use these dies in lots of different ways.
