Fall-i-days with Eileen Hull

This month Eileen Hull's Inspiration Team are celebrating Fall-i-days or any other holiday we like!  I chose to make a Christmas Planner, or as I have called it - Christmas Lists!
I have been enjoying making real leather journals and this turquoise is my favourite  colour.  
These journals are such a handy size to fit in a handbag/purse and I will be able to change the inserts year after year.
I used Eileen Hull's Passport Journal die (Sizzix 660331) and cut my leather pieces.
I used a strong leather glue to put the pieces of the journal together.
I cut further pieces from card to line the inside of the journal and glued these in place.
I made a small envelope to fit the inside back cover of the journal.  It is similar to the one I created here, I just changed the dimensions to fit the smaller journal.
I used the die to cut my insert covers.
I printed off some 'lists' paper from Ray Blake's website HERE.  I did have to cut them to size to fit my covers.
I used minimal decoration, a Tim Holtz snowflake and some paper dolls.
More paper dolls.  The clip at the side was made from bits and bobs from my stash.
I added a third list booklet, isn't that little boy just adorable!
To finish off I added a Tim Holtz metal frame, coloured with white embossing powder.  The handwritten label was coated with Glossy Accents.

All month long my teamies will be making and sharing their Fall-i-day makes over on Eileen's blog, if you do have time please do visit, you will not be disappointed!

Thanks so much for your visit, I hope to see you again soon.

Hugs, Anne xx

  30. Wow Anne, this is such a brilliant idea! I am the queen of sticky notes! I am constantly leaving little pieces of paper everywhere with notes, reminders, and lists, but I should really follow your lead and put together something where it can all go together! You even have a food shopping list section, genius!! Love the blue, so frosty. The images are fantastic and I adore those little charms, they look like snowballs! A gorgeous and functional project Anne, love it! hugs :)
