Hello everyone and happy Friday!! It´s again time for the monthly The Wild Hare Kits Scraplift share. The team members pick one member to scraplift every month and this month we are scraplifting the lovely Kate. Here is the layout I chose to scraplift (she does lots of happy mail and not so many layouts recently, but I managed to find one to scraplift :)!).
The above layout is her´s and now to my take on it:
Wreaths have been really popular recently in scrapbooking layouts. So I did one too, based on Kate´s layout. I loved to fussy cut the Truly Grateful No. 11 paper with the „Cuckoo Clocks“ on it and arrange them onto the paper to mimic a wreath.
I started by fussy cutting lots of cuckoo clocks, then took the 2×2 inch papers from the Truly Grateful collection and fussy cut some of the Phrase Swatch Book papers too. Next I added orange and green spray ink splatters onto the background. After that I took a German sentiment stamp set (Klartext) and stamped sentiments like „your rock and you are super cool“ onto the page.
Then I adhered all the fussy cut elements onto the page either with liquid paper glue or 3D foam pads (adds nice dimension). I also fussy cut and folded some tiny leaves from the cuckoo clock paper residue parts and added faux stitching onto them with a white gel pen. Then all I needed to do was to add the photo (I matted the photo with 3 pieces of swatchbook papers from the Truly Grateful collection).
I adhered the title on the Office Hours embellishment packaging paper to make it stand out better. The alphas were from my own stash as I didn´t have any in my kit. I also added a few tiny fussy cut butterflies here and there, also from the Cuckoo Clock paper. And there is one flair on the page too. It´s also from my older stash, but I found it matched the layout theme perfectly.
I had a really great time scraplifting Kate´s layout!!! It was fun to do something I don´t do that often! I love the wreath, loved all the fussy cutting, arranging and layering. And that Cockoo Clock paper is one of my big faves from this kit! LOVE IT!!!
