When we have exciting news like “Eileen Hull is coming to Palette & Paper on September 10” we like to share it in our newsletter, on Facebook and Instagram (so be sure to sign up for the newsletter and follow us on social media). Eileen Hull is a designer for Sizzix, has created various products with manufacturers, travels the USA and Canada in her amazing camper named Scotty and more!
When Eileen heads to P&P in less than two weeks she will be sharing and teaching two classes that utilize her revolutionary Sizzix ScoreBoards XL Die –Journal. This die allows you to cut the pieces to make your very own Traveler’s Notebook cover, and Eileen will guide you through how to create one out of fabric or paper. Click here to read more about the two classes and get registered today!
One of the reasons having Eileen here along with her awesome Journal Die is so exciting is because Traveler’s Notebooks are, in a word, awesome! You can do so much with them! To expand a little more, the Traveler’s Notebook, in simplest terms, it is a “notebook system” consisting of a cover with elastic bands inside that enable the user to connect to it notebooks (aka refills or inserts) and other accessories (card holder, dashboard, etc.). This enables the user to customize the Traveler’s Notebook based on their needs with just switching the contents/refills.
As we have shared before in this blog post, Traveler’s Notebooks can be used in daily organization for a plethora of things.
They can also be used to make amazing journals and albums for trips, prayer/faith journal, experiences and so much more.
By using the die set you can cut the pieces to make the TN cover like you see below.
Using this as the base you can create amazing journals. The creations that have been made with this die are stunning! Just look at some of these!
Amazing, right? It is so awesome see how this one die can create so many gorgeous journals that are as creative as their makers. So, be sure to join us and Eileen on September 10 to learn more about these journals and how to create one from the master herself!

The first two weeks of August have been a time to catch our breath at P&P and a perfect opportunity to say "thank-you" to all of you for your support this year. We truly feel honored and grateful anytime you walk through the door of the shoppe or the studio!
In 2016, we've held numerous classes from Bible Journaling to Chalk Art to Copic Coloring as well as Weekend Crops, Planner Meet-ups and Open Studios on Wednesday evening. Out-of-town guest instructors have loaded up their suitcases and SUV's and have driven or flown thousands of miles to share their talents in person. How incredible is it that Jen Starr, Tai Bender, Jann Gray, Sandy Allnock, Eileen Hull and most recently, the fab Ken Oliver have all made their way to Indy? Thank you to all who have taken their classes and encouraged them in their careers and at the same time have supported the mission of P&P! Just check out the rest of this newsletter to see what's yet to come for 2016.
To truly show our appreciation for your friendly patronage, we invite you to choose a shopping day* between Wednesday, August 17 and Saturday, August 27 when you'll save 20% off your entire purchase of regularly priced merchandise.** Just mention the codeword MERMAID20.
*Be sure to check the calendar for shoppe hours.
**A few exclusions apply!
