My favourite two – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and welcome to the Wild Hare Kits Design Team´s monthly scraplift post! Last month we scraplifted the lovely Rachel and this month it´s Laura Rahel Crosby who we are scraplifting!!!

Here is her project I chose to scraplift this month:

And here is my take on it:

I´ve also recorded a video on the process for you to watch. I hope you enjoy it!!

I chose this layout for scraplifting, because  I found the idea of creating a paper roll title just awesome! That is what immediately inspired me. I created a smaller page in size, so I had to rearrange and rethink the arrangement for my page. BUT even though my page looks different to hers, I kept to the basic idea of using two photos, creating the fun title, using stickers and puffy stickers for decoration. I know she used enamel dots in stead of puffy stickers, but I didn´t have any around atm. I think you can still recognize the similarities, even though the end result differs in size and arrangement.

This was a fun challenge, because I had to improvise a little more than I did last month. I hope you find inspiration and scraplift one of Laura´s pages too. Be sure to tag her and the Wild Hare Kits and use #thewildharekits when sharing on your social media!!!

I´ll be back with another project on the 29th, so be sure to come and check it out!

Happy scrapping,

Mr. Grimasse! – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello and happy Sunday!!! Today I´m sharing my second project created with the Wild Hare Kits September Petite Kit. This time the layout features the Carta Bella stencil from my kit with some Sparkle City papers and stickers.

For this layout I´ve used a piece of 8×11 inch white cardstock as my starting point and then combined Shimelle´s Sparkle City paper and stickers with the Carta Bella Garden Geometric Stencil.

This layout I about my dad, who I lost way too early. I really like this photo of him so very much, because now I know from whom my boys inherited the „funny face in photos“-personality :-). So no wonder I cannot get a decent photo of my boys…ever! Always pulling faces, the two. I´d love to see my dad to see how similar my boys are to him…

And now to the steps – here is what I did:

  1. Take the Garden Geometric Stencil by Carta Bella and place it on a white piece of cardstock in the size of 8×11 inches. Take a blending brush and apply Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink thru the stencil onto the white cardstock. Repeat throughout the whole paper.
  2. Next take the Sparkle City „office paper with rays“ by Shimelle and cut the rays apart with scissors. Now arrange them onto the stenciled background paper leaving a little open space between each „ray“. Adhere on place. Now arrange the photos onto the page. I used two exact same photos for a repeated look, which creates more interest to the page in my opinion.
  3. Now take a black pen and add faux stitching to the blue toned paper „rays“.
  4. Adhere the photos on place and attach stickers and a fussy cut tag next to the photos into a cluster.
  5. Stamp small sentiments with black ink onto the rays for a fun detail and add a few black ink splatters here and there for additional interest.
  6. Outline the layout using a black marker and add the journaling.

I´ve again recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch! I hope you like it and get inspired by it. By the way, we (as in the design team girls) would love to see your The Wild Hare Kit creations, so be sure to tag us on social media and use #thewildharekits, so we can find your lovely work and come and leave some love!!

Happy scrapping and see you again on the 25th over at the Wild Hare Kits blog! We´ll be sharing our monthly team member scraplift projects on that day! I cannot wait to see what everyone has created!!! This month we are scraplifting the lovely Laura Rahel Crosby !!

Happy scrapping,

Meine zwei Hübschen – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and welcome to my first The Wild Hare Kits September Petite Kit project share! This month I received a Petite Kit from The Wild Hare Kits to design with and it had 2 sheets of Pink Fresh Studio´s „Just A Little Lovely“ collection papers in it and I just ADORE them – especially the B-Sides!!! <3

I started September off by creating a layout based on this months sketch. Have you played with the Wild Hare Kits monthly sketches yet? I find them very inspiring and always have a great time playing with them!

Here are the steps I did to create the layout:

  1. Take pink, green and blue spray inks and mix them with a little bit of water to create a lighter tone and a more liquid watercolour look. Now grab a paint brush and apply the deluted ink onto the page copying the watercolour look of the paper, but only apply the paint onto the areas according the September sketch.
  2. After the first layer is dry, apply some ink droplets randomly onto the background for additional detail. Use the same colours.
  3.  Next place a stencil – I used my Carta Bella Garden Geometric Stencil which came with the kit for this purpose – onto  the Just A Little Lovely paper on top of the previously painted area and apply Nuvo Mother of Pearl Embellishment Mousse with a palette knife onto the background for interest and texture. Let dry properly before moving to the next step.
  4. Now take the Sparkle City Speech Bubble paper and fussy cut the speech pubble with scissors. Arrange onto the page, but don´t adhere it on place yet.
  5. Next take the Shimelle Sparkle City sticker sheet and add the green toned border sticker (cut in smaller pieces) next to the speech pubble paper and underneath it, so that is shows only partially.
  6. Keep adding more decorational elements from the Sparkle City collection papers and sticker sheet until you are happy with the result. Then arrange the photos in place and adhere everything on their places. Add additional decoration using sentiment and/or word stamps next to the photos.
  7. Finish the page off by outlining it with a black pen, then attach the glitter alphas on place to build a layout title.
  8. You can also add journaling, but I chose not to, as I find that the title tells it all.

I´ve again recorded a video for you to watch. I hope it inspires you and gives you a better idea on each an every step!

Also, we always love to see you take your twist on our monthly sketch!! So if you do, be sure to tag the Wild Hare Kits on social media and/or use #thewildharekits, so we can come and leave some love!! We´d love to see what you make!

Happy scrapping and see you again on the 22nd with another TWHK project share!!!

Unboxing day – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and happy belated Unboxing Day! I can finally share my September The Wild Hare Kits kit unboxing video with you all. See, my kit got stuck at customs and they were so keen on my kit, that they kept it for almost 2 weeks. Finally I received it today, so I´m happy to share my quickly recorded and non-edited video with you today.

By the way, I LOVE this months kit!!! Eeek!! Last month was amazing, this months one is not a bit less awesome!

I requested a Petite Kit for September and got one too. In soft, pastellic, beautiful purple and pink colours!!! <3 Hello Pink Fresh Studio „Just a Little Lovely“, Shimelle´s „Sparkle City“ and a gorgeous Carta Bella stencil!!

Annddd…. here is the video:

My request was to get a kit for documenting my knee surgery recovery story and this kit is just perfect for it!!! Cannot wait to start working with this kit!!!

So I´m quickly putting this post live, so you can finally see, what I will be working with during September :). Like last month, there is also going to be a Finnish and German kit unboxing video up over at my YouTube channel. You can find them here and here :).

Happy scrapping!!!

Layout with The Wild Hare Kits kit

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!
