Angelic Journal with Eileen Hull

Merry Christmas!! I am astounded that Christmas is only two weeks away. How the heck did that happen? We are still in the middle of decorating our tree! Hopefully I'll still have time to make the other Christmas themed projects I have in mind but at least I can share this one with you now:

Inside view (I used pre-made inserts for the signatures that I embellished):

I didn't do a tutorial for this project but here is a peek of just the cover, outside and inside:

I used a ton of Distress Oxide inks on the cover here as well as Texture Paste through a stencil with gold embossing powder added to the top of it.

I covered the inside of the cover with pages from an old hymnal, then stamped and inked over the top.

Thanks for stopping by! Check out Eileen's blog and if you are not already a member, join the Facebook Eileen Hull Fan Club group. It is a warm, supportive group with lots of inspiration and sharing going on. You'll just have to answer a few simple questions when asking to join (to keep out spammers) and then you'll be added. ;-)

Also, I was going to submit this to the December Mini Album Makers Challenge and forgot!! Remedying that now. ;-) Check out their challenge. There is always a wealth of inspiration there to see!

  1. Just beautiful, Lisa!I love the cover, inside and out and how you made the pages! Merry Christmas! (Our tree is still sitting in a bucket of water outside!)

  2. Your album is beautiful Lisa, the angel on the front is so lovely and that ton of Distress Oxide worked wonderfully well! I really love the vintage look of the inserts too. We have not even managed to put our tree up yet, I need to make an effort!

    Thanks so much for joining in with us at Mini Album Makers this month. Anne xx

  3. So great Lisa...love the blues so soft and the angels!
