Hello and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing yet another artist trading card, created using some of the new Elizabeth Craft Designs product I received in the mail last week.
For this one I created the background using Distress Inks and Stains, then stamped in the same way, like on the ATC shared yesterday (read more here).
So the background is similar/identical to the one shared yesterday, but for this one I also used some leftover die cut pieces as leaves, then added a suede ribbon that I misted with spray ink and matted the card onto a turquoise piece of burlap. Also this one has a sentiment as additional detail.
Love the contrast of pink and turquoise with the black stamping. Adding these pieces to my ATC stash again.
Wishing you all a great begin into the weekend!! Happy crafting, xxx, Sanna
Hello everyone and happy last day of March. How is your social distancing going? It´s now been two weeks and two days here in Austria and we are adjusting to the new situation. I noticed, that watching the news just grows anxiety and causes small panic attacts, so I keep myself from watching the daily reporting at the moment.
But now something more relaxing and fun – my March The Wild Hare Kits project wrap-up video. Hope you like it:
This month my March kit did not arrive in time, as it accidentally ended up going to Australia (Austria <-> Australia) and it took almost a month for it to finally arrive to me (which was on 26th of March). So I could not create with a “new” kit. But instead came up with plan “B” and pulled all the previous leftover kits together and scrapped my March projects with those.
And it was so MUCH FUN! The kits are big and there was still so much product left, so I could have created even more, but as I had a cruciate replacement surgery on my right knee Mid March, I only managed to create 3 layouts. Better than nothing, huh?
I´m really happy with all 3 layouts and challenging oneself with the leftover kits so also very much fun. If you haven´t tried it yet, I strongly recommend you do! You´ll be surprised how well all the leftovers work together and how much you can still create!!
Wishing you all a lovely day, even though we are all social distancing. But we crafters are familiar with this, right? So we can do this!!
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, it is again time for my February The Wild Hare Kits Petite Kit project wrap-up video. This time I am also sharing some background info, on why there will not be a March kit unboxing video from my part tomorrow.
Because of reasons Alison nor I can change, I will not be able to post an unboxing video this month. See, my kit got shipped in time, but something happened on the way here and insted of being shipped to Austria, the kit got shipped to Australia..
So until it arrives from there to me, it will take a few (or more) weeks. I will probably not be able to receive my kit in time for March. But as soon as it arrives, I will make sure to share it with you :). Just not right now. And for scrapping in March, there will also have to be a plan B. So I´ll be scrapping with what is left of my February kit and will be pulling product from my previous leftover kits to that and then creating with those. So sorry for that, but there is nothing we can do to change this at the moment.
And finally, I hope my bad luck regarding shipping is finally over. In fact, I feel it is. Just this once and then it will be all good again :). And as for crafting, I will need to take a little pause from crafting anyhow as I am about to go into surgery to fix my knee (had an accident in January). So wish me luck for that and we´ll be hearing each other very soon!
Hello everyone, and welcome to another The Wild Hare Kits scraplift challenge. This month the design team girls are scraplifting Jess Claire´s work.
Here is the layout I lifted:
I created a 12×12 inch layout based on Jess´s work, but other than that I pretty much kept to the design. Here is what I ended up making:
I used plenty of papers on this page, wripping them, like Jess had done on her page. I also added lots of ink splatters to the background like she did on her page.
I wanted to add lots of detail around the photo, so I added some stamping with the Dear Lizzy stamp set that came with my kit.
I even used the paper that I was not that much fond of on this layout and actually liked how it blended into the other papers and colors. Can you see it above, tucked behind the photo?
I chose this page by Jess, because I liked the way she had used the patterned papers on her page! I haven´t done paper tearing for a long time and it was really fun layering all the papers on top of each other. I also liked the way she had added the little ephemera pieces in between the papers. I did the same with the chipboard pieces!
For a better idea on the actual process, I´ve also recorded a video for you to watch!
If you get inspired by our scraplift challenges, do remember to tag us, so we can find you and come and admire your work (use: #thewildharekits).
Wishing you all a lovely day, Happy crafting, xxx, Sanna
