One Page Tag Book for Eileen Hull Designs (Chapter 2)

 Welcome to Eileen Hull's Chapter 2 Release Party! Today Eileen's teams are sharing Folio Journal accessory dies, the Waterfall, Tags and Book Binding dies (and the adorable Bigz Camper Van). There is no need to limit these dies for books, you can use them for so many different elements in different size journals, cards and layouts. 


I love creating little books from a single sheet of 12 x 12 paper, in fact it was what drew me to scrapbooking all those years ago. So what better way than to share Eileen's new tag dies than to make a small folded tag book which can stand alone or which you can add to a journal or notebook.

Check out all the different ways to use these dies on our Blog Hop. Click through and leave a comment on each of the designers' posts and be eligible to win a $25 gift certificate in Eileen's Etsy Shop.

Join us on Facebook Live and YouTube Live for an up close and personal look at the team's projects ..... and their craft rooms! Eileen will also demo how to use the dies during the show. I really hope you can join us for this fun event. 

So here are a few more details of my tag book along with a YouTube tutorial.


Using just a few simple folds and cuts it is easy to create lots of places for tags and ephemera.


The little book opens out with even more pockets and tags ......


.... and including enough room for photographs.


My parents when they were "courting" went everywhere by bus and their photograph albums are full of bus tickets. So I tried to create something similar using Tim Holtz photographs and stamped tickets.


These flowers came with the papers (49th Market) and were just perfect without adding too much bulk.

Either watch the tutorial video here or click on the YouTube link.



These little books either stand alone, or can be added to a journal. This is a Pocket Notebook I made for my friend Elizabeth and I added a little tag book to the back cover. I made it slightly longer in length to accommodate some larger tags.

Do join me later in the month when I will have another tutorial for a one sheet tag book which will fit inside the new Folio die.

As always thank you for joining me today.
