We Love To Travel – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and welcome to another The Wild Hare Kits August kit project share here on my blog. For today´s project I´ve created a clean and simple scrapbook layout using The Color Fresh and Flower Market collections from my August Deluxe Kit.

Here is what I created:

For this laoyut I´ve used a piece of white cardstock as my layout background and then build everything else on top of it. I cut the Color Fresh “Counting on You” paper into strips with scissors and used my sewing machine to sew all the stips onto the white cardstock.

I love, love, love this paper so very much! That is also why I didn´t want to add too many details on top of it, so I went for a clean grid look. I used 4 color photos and arranged them very randomly onto the page. Then I fussy cut the Flower Market “Squares” paper into 2×2 inch squares and arranged a selection of those around the photos, creating a grid look.

After I was happy with the placement, I adhered every single piece onto the background with paper glue and chose various older alphas from my stash to create a multi-colored title. I didn´t have any alphas in my kit this time, so I have been adding ones from my stash that I find would fit the kits color scheme. For finishing touches I added a date stamp into one of the squares and also wrote some journaling onto another. I also managed to add a few Bramble Fox stars here and there (I adore them and keep on adding them to each layout I make :-D!).

I´ve also recorded a short video while I was creating – hope you like it!

I hope you enjoy today´s post and get inspired to scrap a little yourself! Also, if you are looking for a hand-curated kit that fulfills all your dreams, HERE is the link you need to check out!

I still have a few papers left from my kit, so be sure to check back here to see what I created with those :)!

Happy scrapping,

Die cut scrapbook layout – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello there everyone, it´s my turn to share a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today. My passion for paper crafting originally started with scrapbooking, then I discovered other areas of paper crafting and got distracted. Well, I actually broadened my spectrum, to be more precise.

I wanted to go back to creating a layout for a change, so today´s project is combining die cutting and scrapbooking. The basic die cutting forms (rectangles, squares, ovals and circles for example) can be used in so many different ways. On my layout I chose to make them the center of attention. The layout itself is very simple in style. I left quite a lot of white space on my layout and chose to die cut retro styled scrapbooking papers to match my late 1970´s color photo. Building this layout was a little bit like building a puzzle. Here is what I did:

Step 1: I first chose the photo, then picked papers I found suitable for the photo.
Step 2: Next I picked smaller sizes of the rectangle, square and fishtail die cut dies and arranged the die cut pieces next to the photo onto the white cardstock. This way I could pick suitable sizes and decide how I wanted the die cut paper pieces to be arranged on the finished page. Remember to take a picture when you have arranged all die cut dies onto the page, otherwise you will forget the order.

Step 3: Pick different patterned paper sheets and die cut the papers. I tried to use different designs next to each other for a more interesting, playful look.
Step 4: Adhere the background patterned paper and the white cardstock together with double sided adhesive and then start adhering the die cut squares and rectangles onto their predefined places. Adhere the photo and take a relatively large sticker where you can write the journaling in the end.

Step 5: Grab some white cardstock and die cut various Leafy Brances with your die cutting machine. Adhere the pieces onto the squares for additional detail. Leave some squares empty and fill some. That way the background will look more interesting to the eye.

Step 6: Add wood veneer pieces or other embellishments for additional decoration and use sticker letter to write the title of the page. That is basically all there is to this page. Depending on the colors and forms you choose, the result can look very different. I hope you give this idea a try!

Here is also a star-to-finish video for you to watch the various steps and to give you a better idea on how this layout came together:

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!
