Hello everyone, even though March is almost over, I´m still sharing my March The Wild Hare Kits unboxing videos with you, like I promised. After being on a world tour, my kit finally arrived on the 26th of March :). And even though I´m sharing on April 1st, this is NO April fools joke!!
This kit is just soooo delicious!!! I LOVE IT ! Here are the videos for you to watch:
I´m planning on creating a minibook using this kit some time in April. I have a Finland trip from 2018 still to scrap and I originally planned on doing that in March, but as the kit didn´t arrive, I´ve had to postpone these plans. Doesn´t matter – I´m still looking forward to creating with his kit, so stay tuned for more 🙂
Hello everyone, today I have something special to share with you! KittyK8 and myself put up a little collaboration of our own for March as it turned out that her kit didn´t arrive to her, but instead is somewhere in Hungary at the moment (funny enough, next to Austria) and my kit went to Sydney (Australia, where Kate lives)!
So she contacted me to inform me about that and we figured, since both of us are still waiting for their March The Wild Hare Kits to arrive, we´d challenge each other with something else. So we pulled all our previous kits together and tried to put a DIY kit from our leftover WHK kits together that would be as similar as possible.
Here is mine:
I´ve got plenty of Pink Paislee Truly Grateful in this kit. Then some Pinkfresh Studio Office Hours, some Shimelle Sparkle City as well as Field Trip collection and Pink Paislee Again & Again papers as well as tiny bits of Flower Market by Carta Bella as well as Pinkfresh Studio Just a Little Lovely. The embellishments are by Brambe Fox, Pink Paislee, Pinkfresh Studio, Spiegelmom Scraps and Maggie Holmes. Also I used the monthly February cutfile for this kit.
And here is what I created:
I used the Pinkfresh Studio Office Hours „Inspiration“ paper as my layout base and added some Pink Paislee Truly Grateful and Shimelle´s Field Trip collection papers to the background. Then I went crazy with fussy cutting. I used plenty of the Pink Paislee Truly Grateful collection 2×2 inch papers and fussy cut words and images. I also added the monthly cutfile as well as some Bramble Fox acrylic embellishments to the layout. I had also picked the Pink Paislee Again & Again collection flower paper to my kit, but in the end decided not to use it at all. As I am scrapping a boy page, I intentionally used words and other images than flowers.
Creating my own kit from leftover kits was so much fun! You should definitely try out making one yourself. And then scrapping with it. I still have so much left from this kit – I could go on and make a few more projects with it.
And now I´m really excited to see what Kate created with her kit!!! She has more flowers going on in hers. I had the Pink Paislee Again & Again paper prepared for fussy cutting flowers, but in the end intentionally decided against it. I did a boy layout, so using flowers was not the first thing that came to my mind, so I stuck to words and other images than flowers. I´m excited to see, how much Kate was able to use on her page and how it turned out!
I hope we could inspire you to use up all the leftovers from your previous kits. It´s really lots of fun to create mini kits from leftover product and then challenge yourself to scrap with those. We´d love to see what you made, so be sure to tag us (@thewildharekits) while sharing on social media!!!
See you again tomorrow with my monthly wrap-up and then in April with the unboxing again!
Hello lovelies and happy Wednesday!! Today I´m sharing my first March The Wild Hare Kits project with you guys over at The Wild Hare Kits blog. There were some unexpected problems regarding my March kit, as it decided to take a world tour before arriving to me (currently in Sydney, Australia and not here yet). So I had to make a plan „B“ on what to create with for this month. I took all my previous The Wild Hare Kits and pulled product together from those.
Here is the result of the DIY kit building:
You can see on the video what products I chose to use for this layout – all from my leftover kits! Since the kits always have so much in them, it is really easy to put together small layout kits with the residue pieces! I love my DIY March layout kit so much! And besides, I get to use up all my residue pieces this way.
For today´s layout I used the mothly sketch very loosely.
I´ve also recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch. Hope you like it!! I´ve got Crate Paper Flower Market, Dear Lizzy She´s Magic, Pinkfresh Studio Office Hours, Bramble Fox embellishments and Jen Hadfield This is family featured on my layout.
I hope I could inspire you to take a second look on those leftover kits of yours and get your scrap on with them. And when you share your WHK projects, remember to use #thewildharekits, so we can find you!! We´d love to see what you guys create with the kits!
Hello lovelies and happy September!! Today I am sharing another The Wild Hare Kits layout project with you. This one is created using the August Deluxe Kit still as I am eagerly waiting for my parcel to arrive. But no worries, there is still plenty of material left in my August kit, so I will just share the last layouts created with that kit during the next days with you and then, when my parcel arrives, start working with the September kit – and share the uxboxing fun and much more! Can´t wait!!!
However, lets start by sharing another August kit project first:
This is a layout created using the Maggie Holmes (Crate Paper) Sunny Days specialty paper, combined with the Crate Paper Wild Heart paper on the background. I´ve also added some leftover papers from my January The Wild Hare Kit on both sides of the layout. I did a guest design team gig with The Wild Hare Kits back then and that was a piece of paper that was left over from my kit back then. Why not use it here, as it perfectly matches the layout theme and colours.
I started this layout by wiping some acrylic paint (Turquoise Green by Amsterdam) onto the background with the plastic spatula.
Next I arranged all the fussy cut paper pieces onto the page. After that I took some alphas (I didn´t have any in my kit, so I have been using some from my own stash) and added them to the page using tweezers, as the alphas are really tiny and hard to attacht without them.
I also added some older decor elements like Amy Tangerine Enamel Dots (also from my own stash – not from the kit!) because I found that they worked perfectly with the kit elements.
For finishing touches I outline some of the enamel dots with a black pen, added stamped details here and there using the Flower Market clear stamp set from my kit. It is really so very versatile and has worked with every single layout I´ve created, despite the layout theme!!
Tomorrow morning we start with the school season here in Austria again so this page is a perfect ending for the summer holidays. Which, as my boys see it, always end too soon 🙂 . But honestly, I am not ready for fall yet either 😉 …
I hope you enjoyed today´s The Wild Hare Kit inspiration piece. The kits are hand-curated and once you fill in a style profile, you will get a personalized, for your purposes and wishes customized kit. I guarantee you will love it, if you give it a try!! Here is where you can look up all details and start with your own style profile :)! See you tomorrow with another layout – I´ve still got 2 more to share, plus a set of Clean & Simple cards, so we are good to go until Wednesday.
Hi there lovelies and happy Friday!! Last month I had the honour of doing a guest design team gig over at the Wild Hare Kit kit club and I loved it! I noticed that I´ve really missed scrapbooking alot! And now I just cannot stop scrapping..
So, therefore even if my GDT month is gone, I´ve still got some papers left from my Deluxe Kit and I am using them all up. So be prepared for a few more layouts to come. And besides, we took like 4000 Fotos on our vacation to Brazil last summer, so there is plenty to scrap about still.
Here is my latest layout:
I did a bit of fussy cutting and also punched circles and butterflies for the page and alighned all the bits and bobs along the patterned paper edges. But before I adhered everything on place, I gave the background a Glimmer Mist treatment with Gold And Aquamarine tones. I also sneaked some stamp images onto the background (stamp by VivaLasVegaStamps). Very light and subtle stamping.
To get the journaling stand out a bit better from the leafy background paper, I applied some gesso with a paint brush to the area I wanted to have my journaling on. That way it´s more readable. That´s it for today. Since I´ve been scrapping so much, my white cardstock stack has reduced dramatically 🙂 … time to order some more, I think! It feels so good to be back at scrapping again. I also noticed that I´m adding much more journaling to the pages at the moment, feeling the need to put the words down on paper. Recording and documenting those memories!
See you soon with another layout maybe!
