Eileen Hull Book Club 2 Release

Hi and welcome, today I have a post as part of the Eileen Hull DT and this month we are showcasing the fantastic Book Club 2 release.
Today I am showcasing the fabulous Wrap Around Journal Die. You can view the whole Book Club 2 Collection HERE.  The Wrap Around Journal Die is a Sizzix ScoreBoards XL Die which means you can cut almost any material with this die, it's fantastic and so versatile. Those of you in the UK can pre order this die from Country View Crafts HERE. I also used the Journaling Words across the front of my Journal to add a further layer of interest.
Eileen sent me this fabric/leather esque type piece and to begin with I highlighted all the embossed design with Wax which worked perfectly to showcase the texture.
I also incorporated Eileen's Stitchy Flower & Leaf using both the flowers and leaf. I coloured the flower and leaf with Distress Inks and then added some wax around the edges of each. I also incorporated some of the hearts from the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set - Journaling Cards, Hearts.
I machine stitched the covers and also added some vintage book pages to the inside cover and also added some watercolour pages which I tea stained.
I also added a shaker to the front of my journal for an added dimensional piece, adding some of the die cut hearts to the centre along with some sequins.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Pop by Eileen's Blog to see some further inspiration from my fellow Design Team Members.

A really stunning journal Tracy and I know I've already said it but I do love the vintage style which looks so gorgeous. The stitching is a perfect finishing touch too.

Adding the wax has really highlighted the pattern on the fabric so well Tracy and you have decorated the cover beautifully. I love your tea stained pages too, it gives a lovely vintage feeling to the journal! I am so enjoying working with this die!! Hugs, Anne xx
