Work Hard – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello lovelies and happy Sunday! Today I´m sharing yet another scrapbook layout with you. This one is again created with The Wild Hare Kits October Petite Kit and as my inspiration for this particular page I used the October Sketch. Here it is:

And now to my take on it:

I mainly used the Pinkfresh Studio Office Hours collection to create this page. I immediately knew I wanted to use the „Hard Work“ paper for this page when I saw the sketch. So instead of using hexagons I used circles which I simply fussy cut from the paper. There were plenty to choose from, so I picked the ones I found most suitable. The ones with clocks kinda fit the working day/life theme quite well.

I first fussy cut and arranged all pieces onto a piece of white cardstock (that is from my own stash, not from the kit). Then I added stamping (for interest) with a roller stamps – again from my stash – and layered various embellishments from the Office Hours Mixed Embellishment Pack on top of the fussy cut paper circles.

Next I took some blue Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (from my stash) and mixed some of it with water. That creates a liquid you can create „ink“ droplets with. I added a few here and there, following the sketch, for detail.

I added some faux stitching around the circle elements with a black pen for additional interest.

Also there are some Office Hours Chipboard Stickers on the page here and there too for texture and interest. I used pens and office supply things, because, obviously it´s a work-themed layout.

I kept to a very clean and simple look without adding too much stamping and media as I wanted to hightlight the corgeous papers and embellishments. I also didn´t do a subtitle under the layout title, but instead added some journaling to the page.

If you like this month´s sketch, do give a try on it! We´d love to see what you make, so be sure to tag us (#wildharekits), so we can come and take a look on your take!!! Wishing you a great time with the Wild Hare Kits and their sketch!

Happy scrapping,

Right Now Minibook – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! I´m excited to share my second The Wild Hare Kits October Petite Kit project with you today. For today´s post, I´ve prepared a tiny minibook in bright and happy colours.

This is the finished mini:

The base of this minibook is a premade one by Maya Road. I have been hoarding it, because I love the thick pages and the robust covers. They were in kraft tone in the beginning so I gave them a „treatment“ with gesso and yellow paint.

I also treated all the pages in a similar way, but only applied a hue of yellow paint onto the pages.

Both for the cover and the pages inside the book I fussy cut the „Cuckoo Clock“ images from the Truly Grateful Paper No. 11 by Pink Paislee and adhered them onto the cover on top of the stamping. The stamps I used for this mini were not in the kit, but from my own stash (Viva Las Vega Stamps and Klartext Stempel). Also the small phrase squares in 2×2 inch size that I used throughout the minibook are by Pink Paislee & from the Truly Grateful collection.

I used the squares in whole and also cut into smaller pieces for decoration throughout the minibook.

I also created additional „pages“ to fit all the photos into the minibook, by folding the „I am Mom“ yellow/blue paper into tiny pages. Throughout the pages I´ve added sentiment stamping which highlights/matches the minibook theme really well. This book is about my knee surgery late May and I wanted to write the story down and collect all the memories together in one place.

I kept the design quite simple, but could not resist adding a few fussy cut elements here and there.

I also added some of the Pinkfresh Studio „Office Hours“ chipboard stickers for detail and decoration. I´ve also sneaked in some stenciling on some of the pages. The stencil is from my stencil line collection at STAMPlorations.

Here is a short flip-thru video of the minibook. I created this book away from home when I was on my knee surgery related rehab, so the photos are partly done with my mobile phone, so my apologies for the poorly results..

I´m sorry if the quality is not the best, but when you don´t have your studio around, you need to improvise. Hope you like the video and get inspired to create something fun yourself with the Wild Hare Kits kits.

See you on the 25th for another The Wild Hare Kits project – then I will be sharing my take on the monthly sketch with the rest of the team :)!!

Happy scrapping,

Good Memories – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing my very first The Wild Hare Kits October Petite Kit project with you. This is a bold and colorful and textured layout share. Are you ready for colour?

For this layout I did the following steps:

  • I took the „I am Mom“ Echo Park Paper and created a background for my layout with it and the Truly Grateful pattern squares by Pink Paislee from the Paige Evans collection.
  • First I arranged all the little squares on place and then adhered them with liquid paper glue (it´s my go-to adhesive, but if you prefer another type, that would totally work here too).
  • After that I added some faux stitching around the squares with a black pen to make it look like a quilt pattern (at least it reminds me of one).
  • Then I removed all the „Office Hours“ Chipboard pieces from the base they were attached to and used the empty base as a layer to gather my centerpiece on.
  • I then added lots of chipboard elements and dimensional stickers (also Office Hours) from that particular sheet around the photo into a cluster.
  • For finishing touches I fussy cut a journaling tag from the Office Hours „Busy“ paper, wrote the journaling and then decorated the page to my liking.

This photo was taken on a crafty event in Finnland called „Craftaamo“ fall 2018 (I held a few classes there and had a really great time). Good memories to document, so I kept to happy, bold colours and designs as well as added all kinds of office supplies as decor as I found that they worked really well together with a craft event theme!

Everything else – except for the black pen, the stamp that I have used, the alpha stickers and the enamel embellishments – is from the October kit, just in case you were wondering. This petite kit goes a LONG way on it´s own :). Do check out The Wild Hare Kits website and fill out a style profile, then you can also be a happy owner of a great, hand-curated, personalized paper crafting kit!!

See you on 22nd again with another project (psst…it´s a minibook!)

Happy crafting,
