Water – Dani Peuss September Kit

Hello everyone and happy Thursday! Today I am stopping by to share a layout that I created using the Dani Peuss September Main Scrapbook Kit. I did a A4-size page for a change. Here it is:

I printed a photo strip with my Canon Selphy and added the Simple Stories ephemera from the Dani Peuss September Kit around it. I then added a journaling sticker next to the photo strip. This is by Heidi Swapp (Journal Studio Stickers) and was part of the surprise sticker pack buy I made in July at Dani Peuss online store.

The alpha stickers are white stickers from the kit which I first colored in light blue and then added white Signo-Uni-Ball marker dots on top. The stamping is done with the Klartext stamp that comes with the September kit. For stamping I used the VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink tone (also available at the DP store).

I hope you enjoyed my layout and hopefully also got inspired by it! I love water and swimming – it soothes my soul and helps me reduce stress and forget about all sorrows. So this pool of ours (even though not quite finished yet) has brought me so much joy already. I am so glad we decided to build one!

What is something that brings you peace of mind?

Rio Negro minibook – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone, it´s time to share another The Wild Hare Kits January guest design team spot project with you guys today. Last summer we made the most amazing trip to Brazil to my dear friend and also visited the rainforest and stayed over night at the Amazon river with them. For me it was a trip of a lifetime and I wanted to capture our Amazon river experiences into a special minibook.

I printed plenty of photos with my Canon Selphy and chose to use a pre-made minibook as my starting point for this travel album.  Here is what the album looks like:

Read the steps on the Wild Hare Kits blog here.

I printed plenty of photos and wanted to fit them into one album, so I had to cheat a little and add 6×6 papers as additional pages to fit it all in and have enough space for journaling too.

I really like how the stenciled pattern look like on the pages!

Some of the papers I´ve used are from my own stash – I added similar toned papers as additional pages, since they fit the general color sheme of the minibook better.

The overall look of the album is very clean and simple with just small decorational details and embellishments. I wanted to concentrate to the photos this time and added just tiny bits and bobs here and there for interest.

This page is one of my faves, the funny photos of my husband and me fit the “fresh start” cutfile (which I cut slightly smaller with my Silhouette to fit into the minibook) theme really well. See, the boat ride was quite chilly with water spritzing around us as our “captain” took everything out of his little riverboat :). We drove with full speed” thru the first river section, so it truly was a “fresh start” for that day.

I´ve also recorded a short flip-thru video for you to watch, so you get a better look on the finished album. I hope you enjoy watching it! I´ve truly enjoyed creating with this kit and would like to thank Alison for this amazing opportunity and for the perfectly curated kit. It has been a pleasure guesting at Wild Hare Kits!

I still have a few projects up my sleeve and will be sharing those here on my blog during the next days until end of January, so I´m hoping you will drop by to see what I have created with the rest of the kit.

Happy crafting and see you soon,
xxx, Sanna
