Eileen Hull Sizzix Book Club Release

Hi and welcome to my second post of the month showcasing Eileen Hull's Book Club release.
This week I am showcasing the Sizzix ScoreBoards XL Die Card Box, Planner Storage and Organiser.
I began by die cutting and assembling the pieces I needed.
I brayered the storage piece with Dina Wakley Heavy Body Acrylics in Lime and Turquoise.
I then die cut flowers from the coordinating pieces to fit on top of the storage piece using Eileen Hull's Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Thinlits Die. I cut these pieces from 300gsm card.
I then brayered over the top of the die cut pieces with Pyrrole Red DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Paint. I love how this highlights the embossed areas from the die cutting process.
I then added these die cut pieces on top of the storage piece.
I brayered a second piece with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Pyrrole Red and then die cut more flowers from the painted panel.
I used these flowers to create two dimensional flowers.
This is the reverse side of the storage. I die cut more flowers and added them back into the aperture die cut areas to give further interest and pops of colour. I also added background stamping to a couple of the flowers. 'Moments' is die cut from white card using Eileen Hull's Thinlits Die Floral Arch and Words.
I also created some cards to coordinate to create a gift. I added my flowers to the front of the storage piece and also added friend, again cut using Eileen's Floral Arch and Words Die.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I will be back next week showcasing further pieces from this fantastic new release.

This is so pretty and I too love how you used both the negative and positive cuts from the flower dies. The brayer makes a lovely blend of the paints. Thanks for sharing your process.

This is a lovely project.
What are the dimensions of the finished storage box made with this die? I haven’t been able to find this on the sizzix website.
