Organising With Eileen Hull Dies

Hi and welcome, today I have a post showcasing Eileen Hull's dies and their endless possibilities for storage ideas.
I have used Eileen's Sizzix ScoreBoards XL Card Box, Planner Storage and Organiser Die for today's project. This die is absolutely fantastic for storage and you can adhere more than one together to create storage for your craft items and when made they are incredibly strong. I have use Eileen's House Pocket Thinlits Die to create a coordinating card to go inside, making a perfect gift idea for a fellow crafter.
I die cut the ScoreBoards XL die from mountboard and then applied Dina Wakley's Cheddar Acrylic paint inside and out, applying the paint with a piece of Cut 'n' Dry Foam and I then dried the paint with a heat tool.
I die cut the front section once again and then die cut flowers from the cut out piece using Eileen's Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Thinlits Die.
I then lightly brayered Dina Wakley's Turquoise Acrylic Paint over the top of the die cut piece. I love how the paint highlights the embossed areas outside the flowers from my die cutting process.
I then added very light touches of Fuchsia Acrylic Paint.
I added light touches of Turquoise Acrylic Paint to my storage piece and then adhered the tabs together to create my Card Storage Box.
I adhered my die cut top layer to the Storage Box and added flowers into the die cut flower apertures. This die also comes with the label to add to the side of the Storage Box, however, on this occassion I added mine to the front for added decoration. I stamped butterflies onto painted card using my stamps from AALLand Create, which you can find HERE.
I die cut a coordinating card from white card using Eileen's House Pocket Die and again coloured with the same paints. I added stamped images using my stamps from AALLandCreate.

These are my stamps that I used combined with Eileen's dies.
I added two butterflies to the top and machine stitched through the centre of the butterflies. I left the cotton threads to add more texture to my design.
I added a few delicate splatters of White Acrylic Paint to add a further layer of interest.
The House Pocket die cut fits perfectly into my Storage Box.

Thanks so much for stopping by. If you pop along to Eileen's Blog you will see more inspiring projects from my fellow DT members.
