… lead pencil markings endure longer than memory

Sharing a pair of off the page projects today, a file holder and journal cover made using Eileen Hull dies.

I wanted to play with my new Eileen Hull dies and thought the spring colours of the papers from the kit would make a nice set.  As the journal is meant to sit inside the file holder, which is pretty much a topless box I am entering these in the current Simon Says Stamp! Monday challenge.

To decorate my journal cover and file holder I made some flowers using Kaisercraft foam.  Handmade flowers are also the current theme at Crafter’s Café so I am entering my set over there.  Meanwhile the Sisterhood of Crafters are looking for spring flowers where I’m also linking up this set.

These are my last projects guesting over at Aunty Vera’s and I’ve had loads of fun playing with the Hippity Hoppity March kit.  I particularly had fun with these projects, working in 3D and making my own embellies.
