Favourite Eileen Hull Projects

Hello Friends

Today I am sharing some of my favourite Eileen Hull projects as Sizzix USA is having a huge sale of Eileen's dies and Eileen's team are sharing some inspiration.  Some of our projects are being shared over on the Sizzix blog today too, you can find them HERE.  The sale only lasts 3 days....

Eileen is offering a prize if you link up a project made with one of her dies HERE.

I think you all know I don't need much encouragement to create with Eileen's dies, the hard part was choosing my most favourite projects!  

The Cantilever Sewing Box die (Sizzix 660768) is possibly my most used die,
I have made several of these for friends, they are great size  for storing trinkets, bits and bobs etc. and like all of Eileen's dies they go together like a dream!
 I have also used the Bag, Caddy (Sizzix 657123) many times, here it is used to house drinks mats
but it will also hold a pad and pencil.  It would make a great Easter egg holder too....
This is the large 3" Block/Cube/Bank (Sizzix 658983) and the very first of Eileen's dies that I bought.  Here I used an Andy Skinner technique to make a Valentine gift.  The box opens up to take a gift inside.
This is the second of Eileen's Block/Cube dies (Sizzix 658984) and has three sizes of box on one die.  This was a gift for a new baby named Leo, I also used Eileen's Thinlit dies, Lion & Monkey (Sizzix 658973) and also Elephant & Giraffe (Sizzix 658972).  The top of the largest box has a money slot, turning the box into a Piggy Bank.
This is a more recent die, Flower Pocket (Sizzix 661112), Romance Flower (Sizzix 661110) and Sunburst & Waffle Embossing Folder (Sizzix 659879)
My last share is the Cookie Box die (Sizzix 659874).  I always like to find new ways of using dies and I made a pincushion, this is one of my most favourite projects!

If you are still with me, I hope you enjoyed my trip down memory lane!  At the time of publishing, all of these dies were listed in the sale.  I am hoping that Sizzix UK might follow with a sale but there is no news on that at the moment - sorry!  If you are in the USA, I hope you find a bargain!

Some of my DT buddies are also posting, if you would like to have a look!

  24. I did indeed enjoy the Memory Lane trip and revisiting some of your astounding projects. Remembered all but the darling baby project and the last one. What a delightful & welcome gift to a new parent with something made so special by these products in your hands too. Something that I expect will be kept for a long, long time! Also liked the blue denim color with the fab pattern and the bright red flower on the cookie box. That really pops! TFS & Hugs.
