Eileen Hull Tiny Book and Tracy Evans Accordions

Hi friends!  Can you believe it's the first of May!  Happy May Day!  Today we begin a new challenge at Mini Album Makers with a special sponsor for this month, Eileen Hull.  Eileen has just released yet another mini album making die called Tiny Book and offered our team a chance to play with it.  I created a simple mini journal with some favorite stamps.

I used PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics to paint my Tiny Book inside and out.  I painted some extra thick chipboard and tore the edges after stamping the beautiful Fritillaria stamp by Tracy Evans.  I used UTEE gold embossing powder around the edges for contrast.

I made a little insert of dyed paper with torn edges, all completely random.  I used Distress Oxide sprays and a lot of water to dye plain copy paper for this, then ironed it to dry.  I died some seam binding to coordinate and tucked it beneath my chipboard layer to make a closure.

Here's another book I made recently with more of Tracy's beautiful stamps by AALL & Create.  This one was inspired by one of Tracey's Facebook lives.

And finally, another book using the Eileen Hull Passport die.  I used the two covers without the spine to connect my accordion.  This book was directly inspired by my participation in Tracy's online accordion book workshop.  The most fun workshop I've ever done!  Make sure to follow her for more classes to come.

I've become completely addicted to Tracy's stamps!  You can see I've used loads and loads of them for these wee pages.

I truly hope these fun little books will inspire you to play along in our challenge at Mini Album Makers for a chance to win a $35 gift certificate to the Eileen Hull Etsy shop!  Good luck, Autumn

Your books are beautiful. I love the torn edge pags with that delicate blue green flush of colour and the sumptuous gold embossed edges are to die for. Thanks for sharing so many inspiring pages. xox

Beautiful books, Autumn!!!! I haven't made an accordion book in a really long time. Maybe I need to change that :-)
