Kunin Felt and Eileen Hull

All of this month, Eileen Hull's Inspiration Team are using the beautiful Kunin felt with Eileen's HeARTfelt dies.  Since Eileen's new Journal die has completely sold out in America and has yet to reach the shores of the UK, I have improvised and used another of my favourite Eileen's dies - the Passport die (Sizzix 660331).  I created a holiday booklet.
I started by cutting the booklet from card and again with the beautiful Kunin felt.
I glued the felt to the card with some Decoupage glue (DecoArt) and left this to dry.  I concentrated on the spine piece, using red cotton string to create a blanket stitch edging.  I then glued the front, back and spine together and left them to dry.
Next I die cut the three 'signature' pages for the inside - using the Passport die.  The pages had been coloured using Distress Ink in Blueprint Sketch.  I simply smooshed the ink on my craft mat, spritzed it with water and dragged the signatures through until I was happy with the colour.
The butterfly was cut using Eileen's HeARTful die (Sizzix 661901).  The little hearts at the top are from the butterfly, I didn't want to waste them!  The stickers are Tim Holtz.
The signatures were attached using the same red string that I did the blanket stitching with.  The beads and felt heart are from my stash.
I have enjoyed working with the Kunin felt so much, I bought some more and created something to share in a another few days time, something related to 40 days and 40 nights of rain....  Surprising enough, this usually deluged by rain part of Britain has been dry and sunning for several days!!

Thanks so much for your visit, Eileen will be sharing lots of the team's makes and also those by the Kunin Design team all this month HERE.  I hope you will check it out if you have the time.

As always, thanks for taking the time to look.  See you again soon!

Hugs, Anne xxx

  17. Anne, what a lovely album in colors that brighten my day! Love that pop of red on the brilliant blue and your stitching is simply perfect! I love that you used the little hearts, too! Eileen is so fortunate to have you design for her--you have used these dies to perfection, and no doubt one of the reasons they are sold out in the US! Sending hugs!

  18. There's something so perky about this - it makes me smile. Lovely bold colour contrasts to show off the stitching detail, and the watery pages inside look so cool.

  21. What a wonderful project! You sure do use felt in creative ways, I must pull some of stash out and try to use it! Love these colours, so bright and cheery! The stitching on the cover is brilliant, especially love the 3 long stitches that you used to attach your danglies! Your pages are fantastic, what a great effect you achieved. Wonderful project Anne. sending hugs :)

  22. What a cute little project. I love the paper you created for the inside too. Rather you than me on the sewing front though... School quite killed that idea for me back in the day...

  24. Another beautiful little booklet from you Anne! LOVE that bright blue and vibrant red combo - so sweet with the blanket stitch around the binding - and in the beads and stuffed heart charms! The light blue pages in side are colorful but leaving room for the photos or text that will be put on them! Julia xx
