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,

Bad Taste Party layout and video – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone, it´s time for another The Wild Hare Kits layout share again. This layout is also created using the August Deluxe Kit (see my unboxing video here). For this page I chose two photos that are exactly the same, but printed out in different sizes. I find that repeating the same photo, even in various sizes  adds fun interest to a layout.

For my layout this time around I´ve used plenty of misting on the background, accompanied with stenciling and stamping and the main decorational elements mainly consist of the Carta Bella Flower Market Ephemera that came with my kit.

I´ve recorded a process video for you to watch, to give you a better idea of each and every step. Hope you enjoy it!

Here are the steps:

Step 1: I took a sheet of  white 12×12 cardstock and  first arranged the Flower Market ephemera onto the page with the photos. Then I took a photo of the arrangement with my mobile phone.

Step 2: I then took yellow and aquamarine spray ink and very randomly misted the background with it. I let the background dry until moving over to the next step. After that I added some stenciling with the Echo Park Epic Triangles Stencil and Hero Arts Shadow Ink Soft Grey on top of the misted areas.

Step 3: Next I adhered my pre-arranged photos and papers onto the page according to my mobile photo „sketch“ from previously. I also had filled in the August cut file with red and green Pink Fresh Studio 6×6 papers that were in my kit. I basically just cut the paper in right size and adhered those pieces onto the sun rays. For the center I fussy cut an embroidery hoop from the Flower Market Collection paper and adhered it on place.

Step 4: For decorational elements I used the Flower Market Beauty All Around stamp set to add small words and hearts here and there. I then colored the hearts with a peach toned marker.

Step 5: For finishing touches I added some of the lovely Bramble Fox Petite Perspextives acrylic stars. I really love using them so much!

Here are a few detail photos of the layout too. I hope you have enjoyed this layout tutorial and get inspired to play with the Wild Hare Kits yourself. We would love to see what you make, so remember to use  #thewildharekits on social media when sharing your work!

I´ll be sharing more Wild Hare Kits projects here on the 29th of August. Be sure to come back for that one, because we are scraplifting our fellow design team members and this month our inspiration comes from Rachel Talmann. Cannot wait to share!!!

Happy scrapping,

20th Anniversary – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone, today I´m sharing my first The Wild Hare Kits layout with the August Deluxe kit. For this layout I chose to use the monthly sketch as my starting point.

I really like this sketch very much! It has all the elements that make me swoon.

This is my take on the sketch and here is how I created the page:

I first printed several pieces of the same photo strip (I love the repeated look on a page, it adds texture and interest in my opinion).

Next I used the Echo Epic Triangles stencil with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink to add some pattern onto the background. I applied the ink very randomly thru the stencil, but still kept to the basic layout of the sketch and positioned the triangles about there, where the stars are on the sketch.

After that I cut tiny paper strips from three different (see product list in the end of my post) Flower Market papers that came with my August kit and arranged  them onto the page to my liking. The tiny banners and the journaling emphemera piece are from the Flower Market collection also. If you´d like to take a better look on my August kit, you can see the video HERE. I didn´t yet adhere the paper strips on place as I still wanted to add some stamping and details.

On my unboxing video I told how much I liked the stamp set that came with my kit. Here you can see the stamping added is done with the stamps from that stamp set. I love these tiny words and sentiments and they work so well with the layout theme too!!

The tiny stamped hearts had only a black outline on them, so they were screaming for some colour :). I took a peach toned marker and coloured them all in that tone. This adds a nice detail to the layout.

For finishing touches I added the lovely Bramble Fox Petite Perspextives acrylic stars to the page. I really like these stars and they work so well with the rest of the page. Also, the colour scheme of my kit is just perfect!! Exactly what I was looking for to work with.

Here are a few detail photos of the layout:

I had a great time scrapping with this month´s sketch! Be sure to check back on the 19th for another Wild Hare Kits project :).

Happy scrapping,

Two more layouts with the Wild Hare Kits

Hi there and welcome to my final GDT post with The Wild Hare Kits January hand-curated kit. Today I´ve got two more layouts to share with you. I promise, these will be the last ones. I still have some papers left over, but it´s mainly smaller pieces, so I´ll be adding those to future tag and card projects, I guess.

Here is the first layout share:

For this layout I again stenciled the background with the Shell stencil and Distress Oxide Inks. I´ve also added plenty of stamping around the photos, the stamp is by Viva Las Vega Stamps – I think this one is by Dee Dee Catron. I love her designs there!

As you can see, I´ve used only a little bit of paper on this layout. I mainly punched leaves from the „A Box of Crayons“ collection papers by Shimelle for this page. I used my Punch-All-Over-The-Page punch here. Then I fussy cut some flowers and fruits from the same papers and arranged them into clusters onto the page. The „happy thoughts“ banner is from my own stash, but it matched the theme so well, that I added it there.

The „Perfect“ cutfile is again from my Silhouette Studio Cutfile collection and I misted it with Tattered Angels Aquamarine Glimmer Mist to better match the background stenciling. On this particular day we visited the Sugarloaf in Rio de Janeiro with the cable car. Boy, did we have some amazing views from there and a gorgeous sunset. I am still pinching myself hat we actually were there and saw it all. It truly was a once-in-a-lifetime type of vacation for us. Maybe one day we can visit again and I can see my dear friend, who lives there, again.

And this is my final layout:

For the final layout I used plenty of papers again. I created a quilt type of background from paper squares. Some are lined up next to each other, others overlappingly and some on top of other pieces. This way there is much for the eye to see and wander across the page. Here, again, I´ve added same type of stenciling. I adore the look this stencil creates.

I´ve again added a title with Thickers, some Glimmer Mist splatters here and there, some bits and pieces from my own stash for additional decor and finished the page off with lots of journaling. I want to record all the experiences we had, because in a few months time, the memories become more blurry and you cannot recall all details anymore. So it´s a good time to put the words on paper now.

That´s it folks! This was my guest design team month with The Wild Hare Kits and I had a ball with the kit! I created a total of 7 layouts and a minibook. And a few cards too, but I didn´t count those, as I´ve mixed so many other products onto those, so they really cannot be counted as solemly kit related projects.

I would like to thank Alison for giving me this opportunity to be part of her team. It´s been a real pleasure!!! And I can honestly recommend the Wild Hare Kits to you – they do a great work curating kits for their customers. If you haven´t tried them out by now, you definitely should!!!

Thanks for a great crafty month!

Two layouts with The Wild Hare Kits hand-curated kit

Hi there everyone, I have been scrapping a storm with my Wild Hare Kits January guest design team kit and still have a few projects to share with you. So today, to still fit the projects in to the month of January, I´ll start by sharing two layout projects with you. And tomorrow I´ll share the rest then :).

Let´s start with the first layout:

For this laoyut I used a simple layering idea. I just cutthe papers into strips and arranged them slightly overlappingly on top of each other. I added some cut details/fringe to some of the strips simply for a fun detail. And I also fussy cut some vespas from the patterned paper that was on the kit as well as added some of the fussy cut sentiment boards from the „I am Mom“ paper next to the photos. Also the black floss that came with my kit, ended up on this layout. I randomly let it form circles and curls on the paper and then just adhered the photos next to the floss. For decoration, I added some flair (partly from the kit and partly my own older stash) and some word stickers as well as the bold „Cherish“ sentiment as the layout title.

I love these photos! They were taken after a day at the Beach Park in Fortaleza. You know, THE park with the really scary water slides. Yes, that one :). And I did try one of those scary monsters myself…

These photos were taken after our day at the park and you can see it in our faces, that we really had a great time there!!!! And can you imagine, it was WINTER when we visited! For me, coming from the northern hemisphere, that was something really amazing. Walking barefoot on the warm sand and dipping my toes into the warm sea. Aaahhh…good memories!!!

And now to the second layout:

On this page I´ve concentrated on the food we ate at our Brasilian vacation. It was so different to what we have here at home. Alone the fruits were so amazing!!! I also tried fried ants and we ate fish from the Amazon river and many more delicious foods. I had a cutfile in my Silhouette Studio that had just been waiting for a layout like this – „Eat well and Travel More“. Those might have been two separate files, actually, but I combined them for this page.

I continued with the stenciled background idea on this page, like I did on my minibook project previously, and also layered the beautiful papers slightly overlappingly again. I love the colors in my kit and the fact that they work so well with our travel destination!!! So I wanted to highlight the bright colors and let the papers create the focal point of my layout here. I´ve listed all the top foods we tried during our vacation on the little journaling card sticker (from my own stash). The vacation was in July and I already had to look up some details from the internet! Funny how fast we forget details!!! So you see how important it is to note such details down on paper. You think you remember, but you don´t…

I have enjoyed playing with my GDT kit so very much! I like the concept of the kits, where you can order one when you feel like it, giving your curator instrucktions on what kind of projects you plan to make next, what type of product you like and don´t! My kit turned out perfect for these vacation photos and it has been a pleasure scrapping with it! I had been somewhat mia on scrapbooking last year but after working with this kit the spark is there again. I definitely want to do more scrapbooking this year! So be prepared to see more layouts coming up on my blog in the future. Ahhh..I´ve missed this!

Happy scrapping,
