Fall-O-Ween (2) for Eileen Hull

Hello Friends!

This is my second post this month for Eileen Hull, this time using two of Eileen's journal dies and Halloween papers from DCWV (Die Cuts with a View).

Sadly, this is my last post as part of Eileen's Inspiration Team, I have taken the difficult decision to step down from the Team after four and half wonderful years.  I will miss my Teamies a lot but I will still be using Eileen's dies and inks as often as possible, I do believe that Eileen designs some of the best dies in the industry.  My grateful thanks to Eileen and the whole team!

I have two projects to share with you, one using Eileen's Wrapped Journal and one with Eileen's Passport die along with papers from DCWV (thank you DCWV!).
I am not going to take you through step by step this time, but I have some photos to share of the cover and inside of each album.  This one is made with Eileen's Wrapped Journal (Sizzix 662816).  It will hold four signatures, with plenty of room for more.
The papers are wonderful for creating the signatures, I have used a whole range of them - although choosing was quite difficult.  I always like to add a tag/ticket holder in my journals and I love to add pockets to the inside front and back.

Journal Number 2
For this journal I used Eileen's Passport die (Sizzix 660331), which is my favourite (currently) of Eileen's journal dies.  It is such a handy size.
Again, my signatures were made with the beautiful DCWV Halloween papers, the paper pad comes with stickers and elements that can be used as tags.  Some of the papers are beautifully foiled too.

I added tabs to the signature covers to add some interest.

Here are the DCWV paper pads that I used, one is pattered and one is plain - the plain one is full of gorgeous Halloween coloured papers.

To finish off both journals, I added some handmade charm hangings, a few die cuts and Sari ribbon, sparkly twine and yarn.  I had such a lot of fun making these!

So there we have it, two more Halloween journals finished, I seem to be building up quite the collection!  I may even be back with more before Halloween.

Thanks so much for all your support whilst I have been part of Eileen's team, I hope to see you in Eileen's Fan Club (there are over 3,000 members now!) or here in the future!

Hugs, Anne  xxx

  10. I'm sure that Eileen and team know they have been very lucky to have had you as such a wonderful, loyal and productive creator / promoter Anne. Each and every one of your makes with Eileen's, indeed everyone's, products is exceptional! Thank-you for teaching us all so much about her dies. These two wowsers are as fantastic as ever. Those papers, especially the foiling ones, look brilliant! Looking forward to seeing what new adventures happen for you. Nx

  11. Those papers are sensational, Annie! I can imagine how difficult it was to choose, but you did a brilliant job of it! They are made even more incredible by your talented creative eye and the way you craft and add charms and ribbon! Two more for your amazing collection! I am sure Eileen is devastated that you are stepping down and you will be sorely missed! Love and hugs, Darnell xxoo

  12. Wow!! You are really rocking these Halloween journals Anne! These two are totally stunning!! I love the papers and you do have a knack for adding the perfect embellishments. Love the designs too!!

  13. Sorry to hear you have decided to step down from the team Anne, you have inspired me so much in my use with the dies increasing my crafty spends hee hee! So glad to hear we will still get to see what you get up too with those EH dies.
    Your second journal is as inspiring as the first and as I say each time i'd love to explore each of those pockets and flaps to experience the whole design in full.
    Thank you for your generous posts and taking time out for us all.
    Hugs Tracey xx

  14. Two fabulous journals Annne - as always. So sad to hear that you have decided to step down from the team and it must have been a very difficult decision. You have given us all so much inspiration in all your amazing projects over the last few years and I shall miss your posts. But I am sure you will still be creating !!!! xxx

  15. What brilliant journals as always Anne, my favourite die is the passport one too because of the size. It's always hard to step down from a design team isn't it, but sometimes you just need a little bit more 'me' time. I'm sure we'll still see many more of your fabulous creations - I certainly hope so! xx

  16. These journals are absolutely Funtastic Anne! I just love those papers and the dies you chose to go along- You are such a talent my friend!
    Sorry to see you stepping down, but i understand the need to cut back a bit- I will keep coming by to see whatever and whenever you create something!
    Sending hugs to you,Jackie

  17. Two more stunning journals, Anne - I think the passport one just wins for me, if only because I always fall in love with those kids on the cover! I do love the pockets and tabs in both, and that spider monocle is a perfect finishing touch. How much they will miss you and your incredible creations on Eileen's team - you've been an incredible cheerleader for these great dies. I've certainly been shopping more than once because of you!!

  18. Wow - two Redanne Journals that are both fabulous. I vote for the passport journal and you are right, the size is most appealing. I love the charms hanging off the side and all the outside do dads. You are in your element when it comes to 3D and journal makes. And of course no one does Halloween like you Boo Lady!
    Big Hugs,
    sandy xx

  19. What great papers. Both of these are darling, and I love that black and orange ribbon!

  20. This team will miss you I am certain, but you are the one who has to decide how to spend your time. We'll still get the joy of seeing your wonderful projects! Love both of these, and I know there will be lots of Spooky stuff to love here. Wonderful papers and gosh the insides are always such a delightful surprise. So much creative use of the products, to enhance what was stunning on the covers! I bet whomever receives these albums just can't wait to open and see what goodies you've done on the interior and will be ooh-ing & aahing as they turn each page! TFS & Hugs. Hope all is well.

  21. These are both absolutely amazing! Scarily gorgeous with so many fun elements - love the papers, your pockets, die cuts and charms - all sooooooo cool! I expect you and your wonderful talent will be missed oodles by Eileen and the team. Hugs my friend. xxxxxxx

  22. Wow, beautiful journals - orange and black is always such a stunning combination. Thank you so much for your visit to my blog earlier, I appreciate your kind comments and have linked up with the mini album makers challenge - thank you for the link.
