Springtime is here, and with spring comes flowers, sunshine, time spent outdoors, weddings, bridal showers and crafts that reflect the beautiful, vibrant life around us. Did you know that Eileen Hull's collection of dies and products not only fits perfectly into these fantastic things we love about spring but are fantastic for year round makes? That's why we had to share some of the favorites of Eileen and her Inspiration Team sent us this week! Buckle up! We're about to take an adventure of epic proportions!
I love the endless possibilities with this die and the ease of construction. This is one of my favorite projects as I love the Autumn / Fall season and the colors are so uplifting. This was so much fun to create and the colors were fantastic to work with. -Tracy Evans
"This "Finding Atlantis" Journal is one of my all-time favorite Eileen Hull projects. I love steampunk and this turned into such a magical mix of nautical and steampunk! I was able to use all my favorite Sizzix dies and play with Paper Leather and Ink Sheets – both new to me. I also pulled out every ocean themed or steampunk stamp I own and had a grand time creating the inside pages." -Lisa Hoel
"Eileen Hulls Passport die makes this awesome book that measures 5x3.75" when finished. Just the perfect size to make a mini art journal, scrapbook or book of lists that you can pop in your purse. There is room for 3 signatures and the holes are already die cut into the spine so it is so easy to assemble. You could even use elastic on the spine & make a mini Midori style book. Check out my blog for a step by step tutorial on how to make this fabulous book." -Karen Bearse
"I love to make mini books and the Passport Book die is the perfect size for a mini-book. The Passport Book works for any theme, and you can use photos, or maybe turn it into a notebook. My Brotherhood mixed media book is meant to look a little like a children's board book, and I used mat board also for the inside pages, instead of cardstock. I've taken many photos of the two brothers, and wanted a place to document some of my favorites photos and to do a little theme book on brotherhood." -Anna-Karin Evaldsson
"I love this project because the Flower Pocket Die fits a standard sized donut PERFECTLY!! And who doesn't love donuts??!! Makes for easy, quick, and budget friendly party favors and gifts!! How stinkin cute would any party be with these favors laid out?? OR how ecstatic would friends be receiving a donut wrapped really pretty and paired with coffee?? I'll tell you what, most people would be considered my super hero if they brought me a donut and coffee... especially one as cute as this!!" -Mitsyana Wright
"Eileen's Mailable Frame die is the perfect base when I want to send a special card to someone because of it's ability to stand up for display and that it fits inside a regular size A2 envelope for mailing! I love sending cards with photos on them and have used this die several times for special birthdays. It is also a wonderful way to frame a special sentiment or quote." -Julia Aston
"The Candy Cup die is one of my all time favorite Sizzix Dies. It is a must for every DIY Maker! I love crafting things for my family and friends. Party favors, hostess gifts and unique holiday table settings can be put together in seconds with this one die. Yes, seconds! Coincidently, the Flowers Layers and Stem Thinlit Dies fit perfectly on the Candy Cup sides. And you can put anything and everything inside the sweet little cups. Yummy candy is always a hit, but a baby succulent was a crafting triumph. My friends adored the tiny planter!" -Michelle Zerull
"I just love the Cookie Box die!!! I have made so many things with it from storage containers, candy dishes, desk organizers, gift boxes, etc. I think it is one of the most versatile dies out there." -Pam Bray
"One of my favorite things about creating with Eileen Hull’s die by Sizzix is the versatility in usage. I love that i can combine one die with another so easily like i did here and create a quick and wonderful project. I used the Recipe Cards die with the Caddy die and created 30 different give a way cards to some committee members at my office." -Diana Hetherington
"The Caddy a great die for gift giving! Great hostess gift! Put a little pad of paper or post it notes and a mini pen and put it in a plastic bag wrapped with ribbon. BAM! Cute little gift!" -Donna Budzynski
"This is my favorite go to die when making gifts for friends. The Sewing Box is a great size for using to store sewing or crafty items. It is very easy to construct and, in my opinion really does have the wow factor. I have made four of these boxes, this one is my favorite." -Anne Redfern
"It is so hard to pick a favorite Eileen Hull die since the list is long. I do adore the Heart and Soul Flower steel rule die. There are so many materials you can cut like felt, crepe paper, cork, metal and in my case watercolor paper. Doubling up on the cuts makes for a big natural looking flower that can be the centerpiece of any project." -Nicole Wright
"Please don’t ask me what my favorite die is- that’s like asking which child I like best… and of course I love them all the same! But the Teacup die does have a special place in my heart because it was of the first I ever designed and I am so happy to see it has become a classic. I made this embossed and watercolored teacup using some techniques with my line of Clearsnap Blends inks and I'd love you to watch the how to video tutorial. Check out my Facebook Lives on Tuesday nights at 6 Eastern for more fun projects and techniques! And don't forget the amazing Sizzix sale this weekend!" -Eileen Hull
