Hello Summer Field Notes Album for Eileen Hull Designs

Hi everyone and welcome. This month Eileen Hull's teams continue to share projects using her Sizzix Chapter 3 2023 new releases. As promised in my last post HERE I'm back with a Field Notes Album using the striking P13 'Hello Summer' collection. It works perfectly with the landscape format of this new album design.

We start with the cover, cut with the 'Field Notes & Specimen Card' Die, decorated to compliment the paper collection with embossing using the new 'Keys' 3D Embossing Folder and flowers from the 'Envelope, Folder & Flowers' Thinlits Die Set. I used some Sizzix Cardstock in pastel shades and also included lettering using Eileen's 'Tiled Alphanumeric' Thinlits Die.

Moving to the inside front cover there are two vertical pockets holding matching tags and tickets; this is a great way to use up paper left over from cutting into papers to fit the landscape format.

The Hello Summer paper collection includes a number of adorable little buildings set in Summer countryside scenes - after fussy cutting around these I added some of the new flowers from the 'Envelope, Folder & Flowers' Thinlits Die Set to layer behind and extend the design across the width of the page.

The next page includes a horizontal pocket which holds a specimen card from the 'Field Notes & Specimen' Die and a tiny envelope from the 'Envelope, Folder & Flowers' Thinlits Die Set. A second smaller pocket is created using the folder from the same die set which holds a small tag perfectly.

The remaining pages are designed in a similar way, making the most of the paper designs and Eileen's new dies.

Thank you for joining me today. Make sure to check out all the fantastic projects featuring the new Chapter 3 2023 releases 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,

Eileen Hull Designs Sizzix Chapter 3 2023 Release Party

Hi everyone and welcome. Thanks for joining the Eileen Hull Designs Chapter 3 2023 Release Party! It will be streamed on Eileen Hull Designs Facebook and YouTube channel at 5pm UK time on Tuesday, 11th July. Meet the team and see their fantastic makes using these dies and make sure to follow the blog hop. We have prizes - just comment in the Release Party chat and let us know which is your new favourite die or folder and what you would make with it and be eligible to win something from this collection!

This new release has something for everyone with the perfect landscape journal, a huge treat box, a fabulous key design 3D embossing folder and the cutest ever set that has a tiny envelope, file folder, flowers and hearts.

Here's what Eileen has to say about this latest release;
"The Bigz Plus Slotted Treat Box measures 6 1/2” x 5” x 3 1/2” and can hold so many things- a set of cards, journals, doll clothes, ephemera storage or you can even use it as a gift box! This is a Scoreboards die which is specially designed to cut and score thick material like matboard, chipboard, leather, felt, fabric and metal. *A 9” wide machine is required to cut this die.
The Field Notes and Specimen Card die is a Bigz XL die that holds 5” x 7” pages or photos- a new orientation! The Specimen Card may be used to hold photos, as a journaling card or a shaker. Holes are pre-cut into the book spine which is adjustable from 1/2” to 1 1/2 in width. *XL Cutting Pads will be needed to cut the book cover.
The Envelope, Folder & Flowers Thinlits dies is made up of nine dies- an adorable mini envelope, file folder, set of small, medium and large hearts, and a large and small flower and leaf set. This die set will be perfect to create ephemera using your scraps!
The Keys 3D Embossing Folder is special to me. The keys all came from my Dad’s house. The names on the keys had to be removed because of possible copyright issues, but I love the idea of stamping or writing words on them. The detail on this is beautiful and I can’t wait to add Luster Wax to make the design pop!"

Today I'm revealing the rest of my Full Size Journal which has been decorated with papers and transfers from the 49 & Market 'Rouge' collection, all of which include die cuts from the new Chapter 3 collection (you can see the first few pages HERE).

We start with the cover, with it's stitched background and the flowers and leaves from the 'Envelope, Folder & Flowers' Thinlits Die Set, coloured and drawn on to match the papers. You will also see some hand stitching in the background, created by sewing thread through a die cut from the 'Mini Slimline & Tickets' Thinlits Die Set.

On this page I've used the envelope from the 'Envelope, Folder & Flowers' Thinlits Die Set as a pocket to hold a small tag and the new folder.

This page features the specimen card from the 'Field Notes & Specimen Card' Die with the new flowers on top, teamed with the 'Tiled Alphanumeric' lettering.

The flowers are also the focal point over a Folio Pocket on the next page; they echo the flowers on the cards in the pocket.

The next page also features the flowers, something that will make any pocket pop, and the folder is tucked neatly inside along with more journaling cards. 

On the final page the large envelope pocket is echoed by the smaller new envelope inside - glue together to hold special little items or leave unstuck to create an extra journaling spot.

Here's a flip through of the complete finished album;

And to finish here's a quick peek at the new Field Notes Album I'll be sharing next week;

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my first project using Eileen's latest die releases. Make sure to tune in to head on over to Eileen's website to see more from the rest of Eileen's team.
