Country Christmas Pocket Notebook.
Being a friend and a big fan of the creative dies that Eileen Hull designs for Sizzix…
I was happy to jump on the band wagon with Eileen Hull’s Design Team and Educators
to create an album using Eileen Hull’s NEW Pocket Notebook Die from Sizzix*.
You’ll just flip at the amazing things these ladies have come up with.
Make sure to read to the end of this post to see the full list of designers.

Is it too early to start thinking Christmas?
Once I saw the Simple Stories– Country Christmas 6 x 8 paper pad* I knew it would make
a cute little album for Christmas using Eileen Hull’s Pocket Notebook Die*.
To create the album you’ll need to cut out the pieces from matboard.
The Sizzix Little Sizzles Mat Board* is the perfect size to use with the XL Sizzix dies.
I like to use my Xyron Creative Station* to add adhesive to the back of the paper.
You can do this before or after you cut the die.
The Pocket Notebook Die* cuts the cover (you will need 2), a pen-loop and latch and pages for
the book. The page size is adjustable and the spine of the book can be any size from 3/8″ to 2″.
I kept the cover and inside of my album pretty simple, I’ll embellish it more as I add pictures.
The spine has pre-cut holes for gathering the inside pages.
I folded several of the 6″ x 8″ paper from the pad to make little page groupings.
Each one is held together with an elastic loop with I tied on the outside of the spine.
I created a couple pocket pages in the center of one of the page groupings.
There’s a lot of possibilities and potential when using the Pocket Notebook die.
