Today, as a member of her Inspiration Team - I'm joining Eileen Hull's Pocket Notebook Release Party Blog Hop where everyone is showcasing her brand new Pocket Notebook die!
Welcome to the Pocket Notebook Release Party! This is Eileen Hull’s newest book die with Sizzix. On the die, you get all of the pieces you need to make an entire book- the cover, pages, latch and pen loop! The Pocket Notebook measures 6 3/4” x 4 1/2” with a spine that can adjust from of 3/8” to almost 2”! String it with elastic, hemp, ribbon or twine. So many options for this fun die!
Eileen’s Inspiration and Educator teams have combined to show us their amazing Pocket Notebook ideas. Please follow the Blog Hop (links below) to see all of the fabulous projects, techniques and videos!
I made a journal with blank pages inside to record creative ideas, sketches or thoughts!
I die cut the Pocket Notebook out of white mat board. I sponged the outside covers with Color Box Blends 2 Sunshine ink mixed with water on my craft mat.
I used the same technique on the inside covers but used Blends 2 in Bay.
I die cut most of the flowers from Eileen's Stitchy Flowers and Leaf die set out of double sided Foam Adhesive sheet.
I removed the backing from one side of the die cut pieces and laid them on Deco Foil and Flock Transfer sheets in Blue Diamond, Sunshine Yellow and White latte.
I ran the pieces through my Big Shot.
I peeled the pieces off the flock sheets and had wonderfully flocked flowers!
I removed the backing and layered the flower pieces together.
I did the same process with the 'journal' word from Eileen's Journaling Words die set.
Then I adhered the flowers and word to the cover. I also added lots of Botanical Remnant Rubs. I punched a 2nd hole in the middle of the binding and wove a piece of wrinkled seam tape through the holes to use as a closure for my journal.
I only added one signature to this journal at this point. I simply knotted a piece of white elastic cord through the center hole.
I cut pieces of white card stock for the signature being sure they fit within the holes at top and bottom. I can add more pages and two more signatures to this journal when needed.
A finished view with the seam tape closure untied.
