Having Fun with Eileen Hull's Collection of Colorbox Blends


O boy have I been having fun with these Colorbox Blends. I love the colours in Eileen's collections, they are so fresh and bright. The inks are really easy to hold due to the great design, and they hold so much ink, these will last a long, long time!

I chose just four colours to use on the gorgeous flowers and leaves from the new Book Club 2 Journaling Cards Flowers and Leaves, and Hearts Journaling Cards. I love all the names Eileen chose for the colours, they are such fun. Melon, Sunshine, Leaf and Frog.

I'll upload my project video, just as soon as I can find out where it's hiding on my laptop :O

Eileen Hull Book Club Chapter 2 - The Wrapped Journal


I am loving the new dies in Eileen's Book Club Chapter 2 Collection, the wrapped journal is sure to be a huge success. It's a fantastic design and of course being a steel rule die will cut through various types of fabrics, leathers etc. My journal is cut from mount board and all the papers inside are just copier paper. I do have to confess that I took my Gel Press Plate out for the first time, and o boy is that addictive! Before I knew it I had decorated two journal covers and a stack of papers ready to be used inside them. Sadly as I got carried away trying different things out, I totally forgot to take any step by step pictures.


I've used Imagination Crafts Starlight Paint and one of their gorgeous mixed media stencils. The paints worked beautifully on the Gel Press, and I will definitely be playing with them on their again. The covers of each signature are slightly darker as they were created with paint.


Whilst the pages were created using the same technique, only this time around with Eileen's Color Box Blends, which give a beautiful soft finish.


I love how soft the colours turned out, it means you can use the pages to write on, without your writing getting lost in the background.



I finished the cover of the journal with some odd pieces left over from a Kaisercraft project a couple of years ago. I love that saying.

Canvas Corp Brands Naturally Aged Paint System - Weathered Wood


Yesterday I bit the bullet and filmed my first YouTube tutorial for Canvas Corp Brands, so you can imagine my excitement this morning to find out that they liked it so much they have used it on their shop page.

I tested out one of the Tattered Angels Naturally Aged Paint Systems, to create a faux wood background, and I love the effect it gives. It's a perfect base for my 7gypsies papers.

You can check out the kit, and there's a link to my tutorial HERE

Eileen Hull's Inspiration Team - Flowers


All through out the month of May the Eileen Hull Inspiration Team have been creating with flowers. So today it's my turn to share a project. I've used the flowers from the Bookmark, Tag and Pocket Die, along with the tiny flower, leaf arch and a word from the Floral Arch and Words Die. And I have to say a huge thank you to my Crafting Buddy Jenny Marples for die cutting a couple of the Embroidery Hoops for me, I really need to get that die!


I cut the flowers out in a mix of three colours which I thought went well together, and decided on the word Moments, and cut that out using black card so it would stand out more.


I painted the chipboard hoop with Pink Blossom Starlights Paint from Imagination Crafts. It only needed one coat, as the paint gives a really good coverage, even on chipboard. Love the delicate sheen this gives.


Next I cut into the flowers on every second petal so I could get some extra shape to them.


Then it was time for a cuppa and work through my little production line of flowers, snipping, shaping and lining them up ready for the next step.


The tiny flower from the Floral Arch set, I popped onto a foam mat and shaped using a Ball Tool, to creat a tiny cup shape.


Once the Hoop was dry, I started to build up my design, first the gorgeous leafy arch.


The the flowers.


I added a paper Doily to the reverse of the Hoop, and carefully trimmed it off when it was dry. I added the word to the centre of the Doily, I love how it stands out against the white background.


To finish off I added pearls to the flower centres, and mounted it onto a 7" square card, covered with a ditsy print paper.


I love the size of these flowers, as they are perfect for using on smaller projects.
Don't forget to check out the rest of the Inspiration Teams amazing projects over on Eileens Home Page or on the Facebook Fan Club Page, the links are all below.

Happy Crafting.
