DIY Gingerbread house – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and happy Sunday!! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and ate lots of cookies and got time to relax with your family and loved ones! I´ve created a layout for today´s The Wild Hare Kits post featuring one of our family Christmas traditions: baking and decorating a gingerbread house.

For this layout I used the Heidi Swapp Winter Wonderland collection paper called „Candycane Forest“. I cut the paper and turned it around to create a two-toned look to the background.  Now it looks like I used two separate papers, but I actually just turned a piece of paper around and adhered them together with the washi tapes from the same collection.

Then I printed out two color photos of my son decorating the gingerbread house and arranged them onto the page. For decoration I used plenty oft he Crate Paper Snowflake collection Ephemera pieces, some Freckled Fawn wood veneer elements that were in my kit as well as some of the Crate Paper Snowflake collection stickers. The title is created with the cute Thickers that came with my kit and I also added some older round Jenni Bowlin alpha stickers from my stash, as they match the colours of the page perfectly. I finished the page off with faux stitching around the edges and by adding the journaling.

So what kind of traditions are typical for your family? Have you documented them on a scrapbook layout yet? I hope this layout inspires you to do so!! If you create something inspired by this page, do remember to tag #thewildharekits. Wishing you a lovely weekend and a very creative new year!!! See you next month again with new projects!!

By the way, I´ve created a style profile for January, where I noted nothing else but: I wish for a happy and fun kit for January. So it´s going to be total surprise! I cannot wait to see it and share it with you guys.

But for now, I´m wishing you all a great New Years eve and may 2020 be an awesomely creative one for all of us 🙂 !! xxx, Sanna
