Heartfelt Home with Eileen Hull Designs!

This month the Eileen Hull Design Team are showcasing projects designed with Eileen's new release, the Heartfelt Collection.  To create this home themed layout, I used the House/Pocket Thinlits set and the Heartfelt Cardstock Paper Pad.

I love working with Eileen's inks because they are very versatile.  For this layout I actually turned the Hydrangea and Leaf Color Box Blends into sprays to create the background.  I carefully removed the plug under the sponge and dipped out some of the ink into a mister/spray bottle. I added some water and swirled it together before spritzing the blue on the top for the sky and the green on the bottom for the grass.

I also used the Hydrangea to stencil some subtle details into the sky.  I tend to be a little rough on my sponges, so I applied the ink onto a craft mat before using a blending tool with the stencil.

I applied the Leaf ink directly from the built in applicator to the torn edge of the this green gingham paper.

I used the House/Pocket die to cut out the parts of the house from the new Hearfelt 6" x 12" Cardstock Paper Pad.  The colors are bright and happy and the patterns are classic!  The little strip of houses was trimmed out of a specialty border page.  You will also find a nice mix of sentiments, cards and pockets that you can trim out to use on your projects.  Here is the assembled house on the page:

You have a choice when you use the house die!  You have the option of including an insert that will punch holes around the edges of the house.  I love to add little details to my projects so I stitched around the edge with pink embroidery floss.

In this detail shot you can see I also inked the edges of the house with Hydrangea.

I added a bit of detail with a black pen.  I punched the heart out of another paper in the pad and then added Diamond Glaze to give it some shine and dimension.

I used Eileen's ink to tint these little wood hearts from my stash.  The color is Tutu - don't you just love that?!

I trimmed out one of the cards and turned it into a tag.  I inked the edges with Hydrangea and tucked it behind the picture to hold my journaling.

Finally, I trimmed out one of the sentiments and added it with dimensional foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie
