Now that the Holidays are over, I’m embracing the quiet of the Winter Season
by creating a few things with Eileen Hull’s and Sizzix’s New Release Chapt. One Dies
and the Simple Winter Woods Scrapbook Collection Kit from Simple Stories*.
Look at this beautiful New Scrapbook Paper Collection from Simple Stories.
I fell in love with the soft, muted colors of the Simple Winter Woods Collection*
and knew I had to have it. (It was perfect for these projects.)

First, I must show you the new toy I got for Christmas this year.
After many years of use and abuse, I finally upgraded my old Big Shot Machine with a Newer, Bigger model.
Behold the Sizzix Big Shot Plus Die-Cutting Machine*.
I needed it to die-cut the larger dies like the NEW Sizzix Frame Pocket Journal Die by Eileen Hull*.
Winter Memories Album
The Journal measures 4 1/2” x 6 1/2” x 1 1/4” with an adjustable spine.
What makes this die special are the additional pieces on the die, a pocket to hold ephemera, a frame and flap!
There are several ways to make the inside of your album.
I created a pocket on the inside of the album using the die and covered matboard.
The pocket is great for adding a small skinny notebook or several little notecards.
I used the 3″ x 4″ journal cards from the Winter Woods Paper Collection for the front of the cards.
I used twine and the holes on the spine to hold a small notebook in place.
I covered the Small Kraft Notebook* using a paper and stickers from the collection.
Continuing with the Winter Theme…
I created a framed picture using the NEW Sizzix Thinlets Tile Alphanumeric Die by Eileen Hull*.
The Tile Alphanumeric is very versatile because you can use both the positive and negative shapes.
Each letter is perforated which makes it easy to create and line up words.
It’s so easy to create a little dimensional piece of art using the supplies you have around you.
And last but not least, I created a 5″ x 7″ card using Eileen’s NEW Sizzix 3D Tablecloth Embossing Folder
as the background for my card.
