Eileen grew up in a large family where there was always an art project in the works. Learning to think creatively has been a huge benefit throughout her life: from thirteen military moves and raising four children to developing product lines for craft manufacturers.

In 2009, Sizzix launched her signature line of ScoreBoards™ dies, which are specially designed to cut and score matboard and thicker materials. Her twelfth Sizzix collection, Stitchlits, will be released in October, 2015.

Eileen also has a line of sixteen innovative ink applicators called ColorBox™ Blends with Clearsnap.

She lives in Herndon, Virginia with her husband in their empty nest :-) The newest addition to the family is a vintage camper called Scotty, which Eileen outfitted as a mobile studio.
