Hello everyone, even though March is almost over, I´m still sharing my March The Wild Hare Kits unboxing videos with you, like I promised. After being on a world tour, my kit finally arrived on the 26th of March :). And even though I´m sharing on April 1st, this is NO April fools joke!!
This kit is just soooo delicious!!! I LOVE IT ! Here are the videos for you to watch:
I´m planning on creating a minibook using this kit some time in April. I have a Finland trip from 2018 still to scrap and I originally planned on doing that in March, but as the kit didn´t arrive, I´ve had to postpone these plans. Doesn´t matter – I´m still looking forward to creating with his kit, so stay tuned for more 🙂
Hello everyone and happy Wednesday!! Today I am sharing my finished The Wild Hare Kits November #30daysofthankful minibook with you and I´m pretty excited about it. Be prepared for a long, photo-heavy post (and a flip-thru video). So here goes:
So the above list shows you all the themes for each of the 30 days. And here is my take on it. Featuring days 1 & 2 plus the cover and the opening page:
I´ve used bits and pieces from my previous kits on the first pages. You can find some Shimelle Sparkle City on these pages (from my September Petite Kit), combined with the November kit. The alpha stickers on the opening page are from my own stash as well as the tiny round number stickers are too.
Here are the days 3 to 6. I´ve written some of the journaling with an old typewriter and some by hand, depending on how thick the page I was writing on was. The Jane Hadfield “This is Family” sticker pack was just perfect for my 30 days of thankful album. The transparent stickers had some many of the album themes featured and I just kept adding them onto almost every single page! Loved using them!!!!
Above are the days 7 to 10. For some themes I had more photos, so I did two spreads of the same theme (like the Savoury theme). I´ve also added papers from my own stash onto these pages as they worked well with the album colors in my opinion. They are from an older My Mind´s Eye pack.
Here are days 11 to 15. I had these really tiny pockets (2×2 inch) in the minibook and so I figured they´d be perfect for the Truly Grateful 2×2 inch papers that were in my October kit. I used plenty of them on such pages as they had the perfect size and also some of the phrases worked really well with the day theme. And just look at those baking theme stickers from the Jane Hadfield sticker pack – aren´t they just too cute?
And here are days 16 to 21. Some of the journaling cards on these pages are from the October kit (Office Hours by Pinkfresh Studio). and then again some Jane Hadfield stickers (that pack goes a long way!) and also some Shimelle´s Sparkle City in there. I´ve printed all my photos for this album with my Canon Selphy printer – really fast and easy :)!
Here are days 22 to 27 and some of my fave themes are on these pages :). Like the pages for days 24 and 25 – I just love the Jane Hadfield papers and stickers with the tiny faces and they were just perfect for here :). I´ve also got some Office Hours (Pinkfresh Studio) chipboard stickers on these pages. I didn´t have many left form last months kit, but now those few ones also found a perfect spot in this album. I´ve written my journaling in German this time just for a change.
And finally, here are the last pages, featuring days 28 to 30 and a last page of the album. I´ve added the Truly Grateful 2×2 papers onto the last pages because they perfectly fit the thankful-theme in my opinion and add a nice detail to the minibook. This was a really fun project to create! The daily prompts were easy to follow and gave the book a nice form. I am sure I´ll appreciate doing this type of album in a few years time, because during time, the focus of one´s life is bound to change and it will be nice to look back into this album and see how life and values were at that time. Here is the video flip-thru of the minibook:
I´ve done a few “A week in the life”-albums in the past and I am really grateful for making them. So many little details of daily life documented in there, from years ago. So I hope you take the time and make your own album – you won´t regret it once you are done. Remember to use #30daysofthankful and #thewildharekits, when sharing your projects on social media. We´d love to see them!!!
Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! Today I´m sharing a set of handmade cards, created using the November The Wild Hare Kits Deluxe Kit. These are really simple and easy to make and are done in no time!
For this card I used the Heidi Swapp Honey & Spice paper “Harmony” and decorated with card with the 1canoe2 Willow Die Cut Shape pack element and a banner from the Jande Hadfield This is Family paper called “Family Life”. The “Rest Up” share is adhered on the paper with 3D foam to give the card a little bit of dimension.
I love the hint of rose gold foiling on the die cut shape.
My next card I again created using the same paper from the Honey & Spice collection, this time I just used the green toned side. For this card I again added some 1canoe2 Willow collection die cut shapes (attached with 3D foam) and then decorated the sides with Heidi Swapp´s Honey & Spice collection washi tape. The sequins on the card are from the Spigelmom Scraps exclusive set made for the Wild Hare Kits and they fit the colors of my kit perfectly!
I love the colors in my kit – beautiful peachy and yellow tones combined with rich green tones. And jus look at the floral washi tape! Isn´t it gorgeous?
For my last card I started with adding stenciling onto the card base using Distress Inks. The stencil is also by Heidi Swapp (see all product links at the end of this post).
After adding the pink toned stenciling fussy cut some flowers from the Jane Hadfield Fresh Picked paper and then cut a strip of the same paper with a paper trimmer and adhered that on place. The green banner is from the Jane Hadfield Family Life paper – it has so many great banners for cardmaking on it!!! I decorated the card with some Heidi Swapp Honey & Spice washi tape and Spiegelmom Scraps sequins.
The layered, fussy cut flowers on top of the patterned paper are just there for texture and interest. I just wanted to see how that type of layering would look like on a card. So this is my card set – I´ve recorded a start-to-finish process video for you to watch too – hope you like it:
That´s all from me for today. Have you been working on your #30daysofthankful project yet? I have! I´ll be sharing my full and finished mini with you over at the Wild Hare Kits blog on the 27th of November. So be sure to check it out then.
See you soon with more Wild Hare Kits projects, xxx, Sanna
