Here we go again.. – Studio Tekturek

Hello everyone and happy Saturday!!! How come it´s already end of August?? Where did this month go? Eek..soon the school starts again and fall is here. It´s been a strange summer for sure. But on the positive side, my mojo is back and I feel better again. Not so drained anymore. And today I´m also sharing my first DT project, created using the gorgeous Studio Tekturek Strawberry Shake collection.

Here is the crazy layout I created with the happy and bright summer collection:

There is a story behind these silly photos… These were taken by me in March while at the hospital (during guarantine, I might add!). A day after my cruciate surgery I was all alone in a 3-bed-room and bored. Also, I might have been unter the influence of painkillers still and I took these photos :).

I found that they work so well with this sugar sweet collection that I made them the focal point of this layout. I´ve used plenty of Strawberry Shake papers, stickers and alphas on this layout. Only the spray ink, stamping, acrylic embellishments are not from the collection, but from my own stash.

I´ve recorded a start-to-finish video to go with this layout, so you get a better idea of each an every step. Hope you like the video and get inspired!!

And if you fall in love with this colorful collection, do contact your local scrapbook store and ask them to stock up some Studio Tekturek at their store ;-). I´ll be posting a tutorial on the 29th of every month during my DT term, so if you liked what you saw, do come back for more next month!!

Wishing you a fabulous weekend and happy scrapping!

March project wrap-up – The Wild Hare Kits

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!!

Stay home and stay healthy!

Hello brother – The Wild Hare Kits

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!

Happy scrapping,

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,

Just Be You – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday!!! Today I´m up with another The Wild Hare Kits February Petite kit project share over at their blog. This layout idea started with the previous layout I posted Tuesday here on my blog.

See, after creating the first page I had half of the ray paper left over and thought it might make for a great second page to be combined into a double page layout in the end. So I went with the idea and this is what I ended up creating:

I used mainly Pink Paislee papers on this layout – both from the February kit as well as from my November kit (the vellum). I also combined bits and bobs from my previous kits to the layout – parts like: Dear Lizzy She´s Magic Feeling Fine paper, Willow die cut shapes by 1Canoe2 and Jen Hadfield stickers, also from my November 2019 kit.

I thought it would be fun to combine yesterday´s layout and this one to a double page layout. One side featuring my older and one side featuring my younger son. I´ve also tucked personal journaling behind both photos – I hope my boys one day will take a better look at all my scrapbooks and then discover these hidden messages to them :).

I´ve again recorded a video for you to watch – I hope you like it!

And finally, here is the double side layout – I love how it turned out!!!

I hope I could inspire you to take a better look at The Wild Hare Kits and scrap a little yourself! Maybe do a double page even? If you do, remember to tag #thewildharekits, so we can come and see what you did :).

Happy scrapping,
