Saturday Showcase: Eileen Hull Notebook Die Tutorial with Stamperia Spring Botanic Papers

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the weekend!  It's Kathy here, with this week's Saturday Showcase.  Today we are going to take another look at the fabulous Eileen Hull Notebook Die.

I've been having the best time with this little die!  It is easy to use, a really fun size at 3 1/2" x 5" and incredibly versatile to boot!

I've paired the die up with Stamperia Paper's gorgeous Spring Botanic Paper Pad to create this shabby chic botanical beauty that I like to call a "lap book."  It's not design to hold photos.  Rather, it is mean to be something that you can hold in your hand and relax while you enjoy beautiful images and little quotes. 

To facilitate this process, I've created interactive pages with inserts.  All the pages for the album were cut using Eileen's Notebook die.  I'll show you how to alter them in the video tutorial below.

You will learn simple tricks that allow you to fit larger images like this one onto smaller pages.

Simple folding techniques will allow you to create really interesting interactive pages.

I've also incorporated some Tim Holtz Paper Dolls and older Wendy Vecchi stamps in the album design.

These little notebooks make wonderful gifts.  They are unique, can be themed to the interests and style of the recipient and best of all...they can be made in a couple of hours!  So join me for this step by step process video tutorial, and we'll get our craft on.

You'll find a linked supply list below.  I'd love to hear your thoughts about this project, too!  

Wishing you a joyful and creative weekend!
