Needles and Pins Passport Book Die from Eileen Hull

 Totally lost myself today as I decorated one of Eileen Hull's fabulous Passport Books. So much so that I forgot to take any step by step pictures.

The Bigz die cuts cleanly through mat board, and even scores the fold lines ready for you. Then I sat for a couple of hours doodling, water colouring and creating a magical design using my Sakura Gelly Roll Pens.

I've made mine into a little book to hold my needles and pins, by adding felt pages instead of paper. I'm always loosing them, and this way they can sit on my shelf alongside my desk.

I love the patterns you can create with the Metallic Gelly Rolls and a Koi Waterbrush, so pretty.

The white is perfect for adding highlights, and check out the Ultra Fine Glitter, I can add the smallest details with the Quickie Glue Pen without overloading the project.

Thanks for stopping by, Happy Crafting.

Eileen Hull's Fabulous Journal Die

I thought I'd have a try at cutting out Eileen Hull's Journal Die in faux leather, and extending it to create pockets on the inside.

So after a little careful measuring (ahem none at all) I worked out that if you folded the fabric just inside of the cutting line of the journal outer edge (opposite side to the spine), you could create an extra flap of fabric.

Join the spine in the normal way, and then either sew or in this case I just glued down the top and bottom edges to create pockets.

I threaded three elastics through the spine for my three local travel guides. Now when my visitors want to head off and explore, they have local maps of the area all in one place, along with a couple of inside pockets for tickets etc.

You could also used a lighter weight fabric and slip a piece of card inside the pocket to strengthen it.
