Wrappd Journal Tutorial for Eileen Hull Designs

Hurray, the Wrapped Journal Die from Eileen Hull Designs by Sizzix is here!  It should be available in your favorite stores and at Sizzix sometime this month.  I am so excited, I just love this die!!  It makes the cutest little book with a wrap-around cover.  It's about the size of the  Passport Journal,, BUT the cover wraps all the way around.

I used  Sizzix Mat Board to make my journal covers, it seems to hold up well with Mixed Media applications.  You can also use chipboard though.

I've recorded a video tutorial showing you how I made the cover for this journal and how to string the ealstic bands.

Video Tutorial

Here's the cover opened up so you can see it in it's entirety.

Inside, with the book opened up.

The best thing about this wrap journal is that I used the pages portion of the Passport Journal to diecut the pages for this Wrap Journal! I love it when dies work together like this.

 I used the Credit Card Sleeve & Tags Framelits die set to create this gift card holder.  It cuts the perfect size sleeve to slide in a gift card or credit card.

Lots of pretty pages in the journal with tuck spots and pocket pages.  I used Stamperia's Alchemy collection, you really have to see this collection in person to appreciate how beautiful it is!!  I bought 1 collection pack, 'cause I wasn't sure if I would love it, oh yeah, upon receipt, I immediately order another pack!

Stop by my blog tomorrow for a link to a video flip through of this journal so that you can see all the inside pages and different dies from Eileen's newest die collection, Bookclub 2 that includes this fabulous Wrapped Journal die.

    1. Go for it Helen, its really not that hard and LMK if you have any trouble, happy to heop!

  3. Gorgeous project!! I can’t wait for mine to arrive and so pleased to hear about the passport die pages as I already have that one :) Will be popping over to look at your video too, Jane xx

    1. Appreciate you stopping by Jane and thanks for the kind comments!

  4. Maggi, I also asked this question on your YouTube video. I went back and forth several times but couldn't see what else you inserted for the magnets to cling to. I obviously missed something because no one else has asked that question.

  5. Sorry, I don't see your question on the video. In the video at about 4:07 you see the magnets on the left side. So for each place where you see a magnet, there are actually two magnets sandwiched together. When you remove the adhesive covering the magnet and press the book closed as I do at 4:17, one of the magnets sticks to the flap on the right side (the flap with the daisy cut-outs) and the other magnet remains on the inside of the front cover thus creating a closure. Hope that makes sense, if not I'll try to explain it further.

    1. I just now saw your comment on YouTube, funny it was late showing up.
