As with any new Sizzix Chapter, we’ve got some glorious designs to share from Eileen Hull®! Eileen Hull's Latest Collection kicks off with three Thinlits® Die Sets that work perfectly together due to their interchangeable elements.

The Shadow Box Frames Collection features three different sized Shadow Boxes, alongside some cute decorative elements, that allow you to get crafty with your creations.

We delve into the detail of each Die Cutting Set to give you some ideas of how to use them, but first off, we’d recommend a watch of this video with Sizzix Designer, Debbie Farinella – it’s the perfect little intro to Eileen Hull’s Shadow Box Collection.

The Shadow Box Frames #1 Thinlits Die Set is perfect for gifting, no matter what the occasion. Once assembled this Die Cutting Set creates a 4”x4” Shadow Box Frame design that can be embellished with the cute little decorative elements that come in the Set. Don’t limit yourself to using the design elements included though, this Shadow Box is perfect for using with other smaller Thinlits Die Cutting Sets to make it suitable for Birthday’s, Christmas, Mother’s Day and so many other celebrations!

Next is the Shadow Box Frames #2 Thinlits Die Set. This Set may not come with any decorative elements, but it gives you options for the size of Shadow Box Frame you wish to create – will you choose a 5”x5” and 6”x6” frame for your next craft project?

Pair this Die Set with the Shadowbox Elements Thinlits Die Set that’s simply perfect for a new home creation! With houses, florals, borders and a ‘home’ sentiment it couldn’t say congrats on your new home more! Much like the Shadow Box Frames #1 Thinlits Set, #2 is also one to use throughout the seasons so pair it with your favorite floral Thinlits Die Cutting Sets or find the perfect stamp sentiment to match the event you’re crafting for.

Whatever the occasion, it’s fair to say the creative opportunities with these Eileen Hull Die Sets really are endless!

Crochet Mandala Embossing Folder

Mandala Embossing Folder

To complete Eileen Hull’s Chapter 2 Collection, we have the Crochet Mandala 3D Texture Impressions® Embossing Folder. Whilst somewhat unrelated to the Shadow Box Frames Collection we have so much love for this design!

It features an intricate, repeat pattern of a traditional Mandala design which makes for the perfect background when Card making, scrapbooking and Paper crafting, all year round! The pattern can be brought to life with the addition of the Sizzix Luster Waxes – not only does it highlight the detail in the pattern, but it adds some incredible shine to your craft projects too!

A fab tip for imprinting an intense pattern to your Cardstock when you run it through the machine is to give your paper a gentle spritz with water beforehand. This loosens the fibers in the Cardstock allowing a stronger pressed pattern. Remember to let your Cardstock dry before proceeding with any additional decoration.

We hope you’ve enjoyed reading this blog post introducing you to the Dies and Embossing Folder in Eileen Hull’s latest collection! Remember to share your makes using #MyMakingStory.
