Journal Fodder with Eileen Hull Designs

Hi everyone and welcome. This month's theme is Journal "Fodder"; creating envelopes, tickets, pockets, ephemera, small books, folders... anything you can incorporate into a journal as an individual item.

Eileen's Teams have been lucky enough to get to play with papers and rub-ons from the 49 & Market 'Rouge' collection - they are GORGEOUS!!! And I found that as well as being ideal for die cutting they also work beautifully when combined with your stamps. I also combined some of the new 'Ivory' Sizzix Luster Wax and Liquid Gloss to add shimmer and shine to some neutral Sizzix Cardstock after it had been embossed with Eileen's 3D Embossing Folders.

Once you've created all of your journal fodder it's time to play! Here are some of the pages which were later included in a Full Size Journal which is currently winging it's way to Eileen.

I used the plainer side of the double-sided 8 x 6 papers for the backgrounds and added rub-ons in some cases; these work well when you are planning to layer up lots of intricate layers.

Once the pages were constructed I machine-stitched around the edges and glued them onto plain chocolate brown pages (which also create the perfect border).

You'll see I've also added some hand-stitching detail, fabrics and ribbons to add to the texture finished pages.

I'll be sharing more of the pages and the completed journal during the launch of Eileen's upcoming Chapter 3 2023 release in July - can't wait!!!

Thank you for joining me today. Make sure to check out all the fantastic projects from the rest of Eileen's team members - links to their posts can be found on Eileen's blog throughout the month.

For now thanks for visiting,
