Alles Gute!

Hello and happy sunny Saturday! First it was too cold and then it´s just way too warm. What a crazy weather we have nowadays!! There even was a tornado in the Czech Republic this week (too close to where we live in my opinion)! Very scary! Also I am staying inside still, as my pollen allergy is really bad this year… and since I´m “hiding inside” I have more than enough time in my hands to do some crafting! So I have been seriously stash busting recently!

I´ve used up some residues from my design team kits, while I was a dt member at The Wild Hare Kits. These 2×2 inch square bits by Paige Evans for Pink Paislee are just perfect for creating card backgrounds. You get a really cool “quilt background” with them and then just need to add just a few pieces of ephemera and such for decor and the card is done!

I also used up some Shimelle glitter alpha stickers for this card and to make sure they stay on place I used me sewing machine instead of glue! The little doily was gifted to me by my lovely friend Lizzy and the ephemera is from my time at The Wild Hare Kits. Some faux stitching with a black pen for finishing touches and the card is ready to be sent on it´s way.

I usually do my backgrounds using different mixed media techniques, but during the years of my crafting hobby I´ve managed to gather quite a selection on patterned papers, embellishments and such, so it´s about time I use those products up. It is very possible that I will not be able to finish this goal in my lifetime (yes, there is so much stuff!), but I am at least trying!!

What about you? Are you a hoarder? Take my advice: stop hoarding! Just buy what you need and use it up! First then buy more! Believe me, I know what I am talking about!

Happy crafting!

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 🙂

If you haven´t tried out The Wild Hare Kits yet, here is the link you need to go to. Happy shopping!

Happy crafting! Hope you are all healthy and coping well with staying at home,

Fall 7 times – The Wild Hare Kits

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!

Happy scrapping,
xxx, Sanna
