Wedding card

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´m stopping by to share a wedding card I recently created. This one is again made out of older product that has been sitting on my schelf for a long time. About time it got used!

I made a slimline card base out of cream cardstock and then added the light brown patterned paper as a background to the card. After that I took some older Pink Paislee paper and fussy cut the roses and arranged them onto the left upper and right lower corner of the card. A stamped sentiment into the middle with a Teresa Collins sticker and the card was done.

I really like how this card turned out! It´s happy and elegant at the same time. I love the yellow roses!! And the red stamped sentiment works great with the rose paper, too! As I´ve used old product from my stash, I´ve tried to find similar product for you from recent collections and lines.

That´s all for today. Wishing you a great week!
Happy crafting,

Baby card – Tonic Studios

Hello and happy Friday!!! Like promised yesterday, I´m back with another baby card share today again. Here is what I did:

This card is a personalized one, because of it´s recipient. Also there was supposed to be a giraffe on the card and rather green tones than blue ones.

I´ve again used the Garden Gate Layering Die Set by Tonic Studios for die cutting the frame. Parts of it are made from patterned paper, one part is from white cardstock that I inked with green Distress Ink tone and an ink blending tool. The stamp image is from my older stash of stamps. I colored it with Stampin´ Up! markers. The alphas are also old and by Sassafras. And the various green papers are also from older stash of mine. The Nuvo Drops I´ve used, are the tone Bottle Green. I´ve rounded the edges with a corner chomper, by the way.

I really like how the card turned out. Hope the recipient is happy with it too!

See you soon again with another type of projects.

You proved them wrong layout – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone, today I´m sharing my 4th layout, created with the September The Wild Hare Kits Petite Kit. I so adore this months kit. I love the colours and how everything in the kit works so well together!!!

For today´s project I´ve created a 12×12 layout using the second Just A Little Lovely collection paper by Pink Fresh Studio that was in my kit. I LOVE the b-sides of the papers in my kit!!! This collection has everything I love in it!!


For this one I´ve used following steps:

  1. Using the Garden Geometric Stencil by Carta Bella I´ve applied Distress Ink in yellow and blue tones onto the patterned paper with a blending brush thru the stencil.
  2. Next I added some spray ink splatters in green, pink and blue tones next to the stenciled areas.
  3. I then arranged the 3 black and white photos of my boy onto the page and matted one of the Sparkle City papers by Shimelle onto the cutfile. I love this cutfile, by the way! It´s perfect for so many different types of layouts, not just only for school theme!!!
  4. After matting the cut file I added some Sparkle City stickers onto it to create a look of book names on the book spines.
  5. Next I started arranging paper strips (Sparkle City papers from my kit) onto the background under and next tot he cutfile.
  6. I fussy cut a tag and a few journaling „speech bubbles“ and added them to the layout.
  7. Before adhering all the paper pieces onto the page I added some stamped sentiments for additional interest to the layout.
  8. Finally I added a glitter alpha sticker title to the page and a few black ink splatters here and there.

I´ve also recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch. I hope it inspires you to scrap a little yourself!!! When using your Wild Hare Kits, remember to tag us and use #wildharekits doing so!! We´d love to see what you create with the kits!!

I´ll be back tomorrow sharing my last TWHK September project and a wrap-up video of all projects created with this months kit. Also I´ll be showing you what is left of my kit after scrapping lots :). So be sure to check back tomorrow for more.

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!!!

Flügelschlag Art Journal Page

Hello and happy Thursday!! I´m enjoying a free day today and what better way to do that than to get my fingers dirty with adhesive and paints. Thus, today I´m sharing yet another art journal page with you all.

Here is what I created:

This is a newspaper collage page. Just something fun I enjoyed creating. Basically it is supposed to capture all those summer feelings – ice cream, sunshine, relaxing, shades, the sea, flowers. Just everything I enjoy about summer. This year we weren´t able to travel to the sea due to my knee surgery and I must admit that I miss it quite alot. See, I love dipping my toes into the sea, feeling the sun on my skin.. I am totally a summer person. Therefore this page!

I´ve sneaked in some stenciling onto the background, but it is mostly covered with newspaper clippings.

Wishing you a great Thursday and a fabulous weekend!! Let´s hope there will be some sunshine in for us 🙂 …

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
