Eileen Hull’s 2014 Paper Trail Tour is coming to Inspired Barn!

Inspired-Barn-Eileen-HullLearn tips and techniques from die designer Eileen Hull using Sizzix® ScoreBoards dies specially designed to cut and score thick materials like matboard and chipboard. These dies are unique to Sizzix® and produce a satisfyingly sturdy project that may
enjoyed for years.

You will have a chance to get inky with Eileen’s new ColorBox Blends™- a new ink, applicator and reinker all in one- and hear how a trip to the dollar store gave birth to a product line.

Eileen will have vintage suitcases full of samples to inspire you. Bring your camera!


Chunky Book
Friday, October 3, 6-9pm   $50

Eileen’s Square Box die makes a 3 1/4” box that holds a cupcake, but by using by just one section of the box, it becomes a chunky mini-album with plenty of room for dimensional items. The book contains eight sturdy matboard pages that we will cut in class- so you may want to bring your Big Shot along if you have one- along with special
trinkets you have been saving to embellish this fun and personal book. Use it to practice your doodling, for photos, quotes, pockets, tags, and whatever you want to add. A little gold leaf added to the pages adds an elegant touch and you will learn a trick for perfect tissue paper flowers.
