Sizzix Classic Dies Release from Eileen Hull Designs - Pansy Notebook

Hi everyone and welcome. With Eileen having completed her latest UK Roadshow at the beginning of this month her teams are celebrating the May Sizzix release of three classic Eileen Hull Design dies. Fan favourites, the Notebook Die, the Stacking Drawer Box Die and the Treasure Box Die all work seamlessly together so you can mix and match them for all sorts of project combinations.

And as if that weren't enough, Sizzix have also taken a piece of Eileen's original watercolour artwork to create a 4pc Watercolour Flowers & Lattice Layered Stencil Set and coordinating Painterly Blooms & Background 10pc Thinlits Die Set. It is truly exquisite and everyone who attended Eileen's UK workshops really enjoyed getting to see them in action.

The first of the projects I'm sharing this month combines these new dies and stencils with the Notebook die; it's a hand-bound Pansy Notebook with decorated pages inside.

The flowers on top have all been created with the Painterly Blooms & Background Die Set - I chose to play with my PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic Paints and turn them into a host of pansies. Here are some close ups so you can see the detail and dimension more clearly;

From the last two photos you'll have seen glimpses of the textured stencilling beneath the pansies. This comes from one of the Watercolour Flowers & Lattice stencils and is highlighted with Ivory Pearl Sizzix Luster Wax.

And now to open the notebook and turn the pages. I decided to add some matching design to the collage pages so they can still be written or drawn on but are not those dreaded 'blank pages'. The layered stencils were used here again and made the whole process much quicker to complete.

It would make a great place to journal about your garden, record plant wish lists or include memories about trips to visit botanical places and shows (the Chelsea Flower Show will be open very soon!)

I hope you've enjoyed seeing the first of my Eileen Hull Designs Sizzix Classic Dies release projects. I'll be back later this month to show you another idea that was created in my house but not by me...! For now make sure to check out all the fantastic projects and ideas from the rest of the teams - links to their posts can be found on Eileen's blog.

For now thanks for visiting,
