Just Be You – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday!!! Today I´m up with another The Wild Hare Kits February Petite kit project share over at their blog. This layout idea started with the previous layout I posted Tuesday here on my blog.

See, after creating the first page I had half of the ray paper left over and thought it might make for a great second page to be combined into a double page layout in the end. So I went with the idea and this is what I ended up creating:

I used mainly Pink Paislee papers on this layout – both from the February kit as well as from my November kit (the vellum). I also combined bits and bobs from my previous kits to the layout – parts like: Dear Lizzy She´s Magic Feeling Fine paper, Willow die cut shapes by 1Canoe2 and Jen Hadfield stickers, also from my November 2019 kit.

I thought it would be fun to combine yesterday´s layout and this one to a double page layout. One side featuring my older and one side featuring my younger son. I´ve also tucked personal journaling behind both photos – I hope my boys one day will take a better look at all my scrapbooks and then discover these hidden messages to them :).

I´ve again recorded a video for you to watch – I hope you like it!

And finally, here is the double side layout – I love how it turned out!!!

I hope I could inspire you to take a better look at The Wild Hare Kits and scrap a little yourself! Maybe do a double page even? If you do, remember to tag #thewildharekits, so we can come and see what you did :).

Happy scrapping,

My favourite two – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and welcome to the Wild Hare Kits Design Team´s monthly scraplift post! Last month we scraplifted the lovely Rachel and this month it´s Laura Rahel Crosby who we are scraplifting!!!

Here is her project I chose to scraplift this month:

And here is my take on it:

I´ve also recorded a video on the process for you to watch. I hope you enjoy it!!

I chose this layout for scraplifting, because  I found the idea of creating a paper roll title just awesome! That is what immediately inspired me. I created a smaller page in size, so I had to rearrange and rethink the arrangement for my page. BUT even though my page looks different to hers, I kept to the basic idea of using two photos, creating the fun title, using stickers and puffy stickers for decoration. I know she used enamel dots in stead of puffy stickers, but I didn´t have any around atm. I think you can still recognize the similarities, even though the end result differs in size and arrangement.

This was a fun challenge, because I had to improvise a little more than I did last month. I hope you find inspiration and scraplift one of Laura´s pages too. Be sure to tag her and the Wild Hare Kits and use #thewildharekits when sharing on your social media!!!

I´ll be back with another project on the 29th, so be sure to come and check it out!

„Fresh Start“ – The Wild Hare Kits

Hi there everyone, it´s time for another The Wild Hare Kits guest design team project share today. I have prepared a short photo step-by-step instead of a video for you to see, so hop over to The Wild Hare Kits blog and read more about this page there! Here is a photo of the finished layout:

This layout´s focal point is on the cutfile which happens to be the Wild Hare Kits January cutfile. I wanted to add a fun touch to it and placed the sentiment under quotation marks. That way it perfectly fits the layout theme which is „joys of long flights“ :).

Nowadays it is kinda hard getting proper, nice photos of my boys. They are always pulling faces and being silly when you try to get a decent photo. Well, for once, for this layout theme, the faces they made, perfectly matched the long flight theme :)….

Make sure to hop over to the Wild Hare Kits blog to read the full story about creating this layout. Here I am just putting some detail photos up for eye-candy.

I hope to have inspired you to play with your The Wild Hare Kits and scrap a little! Do try their hand-curated kits out – they are something really special! I am so much enjoying my guest design team over there! And do come back for more later this week and next week, I´ve still got quite a few shares up my sleeve :).

Happy scrapping,

Blue hour – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Like I told you previously, I´ll be doing guest design team posts for Elizabeth Craft Designs starting from January and today is my turn to share my first project with you. I´ve created a scrapbook page and then after finishing it, had plenty on product left, so I created a total of three cards with the leftover pieces. Both the layout and the cards have a start-to-finish video to watch. Hope you enjoy it!

This is the layout I created:
It has been almost ten years since I last was in Finland during winter. That is so long ago – I definitely need to go more often! This picture was taken during my last winter visit there and it reminds me of the cold weather. When it is really cold, the snow makes noises under your feet, it crunches. Then there is the blue hour, sligthly after sundown, when everything around you turns a blue shade. I love that moment. This picture was taken during the blue hour and it reminds me of all the things I am familiar from winter. Funny, I´d never think I´d miss that, actually. That is what this layout is about.

Then I made a couple of cards with all the pieces left over from the layout: For the first one I used the leftover 3D foam adhesive sheet from Scrapbook Adhesives. I covered it with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and then added some stamped and die cut, colored trees and a stamped and die cut sentiment to it.

For the second card I used the dotted paper strip – which I cut out from the layout background to save some paper for later – as my card background and added a leftover snowflake as a centerpiece on it. I stamped and die cut sentiment which I inked iwth blue Distress Ink to make it stand out from the bakground, finishes the card off.

And for the third card I used the negative glitter foam piece, from which I die cut the alphas for the layout title, as my focal point of the card. The fun part of this piece is the red matted word „Hi“ on the right upper corner. I only needed to add the leftover tree and some die cut and stamped stars, a small hand drawn heart and the stamped and die cut word on top. As a base I again used a piece of the dotted blue paper. I´ve prepared a video for you to watch, to give you a better idea of all the product used and step I did. Hope you like it!

 So next month is February which means Valentine´s Day – I have a feeling you will be seeing something love themed next month from me :).

Until then, have fun crafting!!!

You can count on me – layout

Hello everyone and happy Monday! It´s again time to share another scrapbook layout tutorial with you today, created with Studio Forty product. I´ve again used the Moonchild collection and various clear stamps, word stickers and transparent stickers from the Studio Forty product range on this layout. Additionally I´ve created fun background details and colored some stamped images with Neocolor II watersoluble was crayons. I had so much fun creating this page!!! Here is my finished layout:

And here are some close-up photos:

I´ve used the Moonchild collection „I´m a dreamer“ & „Spirit of nature“ clear stamp sets to stamp the dreamcatchers for the layout. For coloring I used the previosly mentioned Neocolor II watersoluble crayons. They work really well even with the regular white cardstock and the water tank brush!! And the colors worked so well together with the beautiful Moonchild collection papers.

For more details about the layout and the product, also see the blog post over at the Studio Forty blog. If you are interested on the product I´ve used on this page, see the end of this blog post for a full material list with direct links. If a product is not available/linkable, then I always try to add a similar alternative to the link list.

This collection has inspired me so much that I´ve created a second video tutorial for you guys to watch. I hope you enjoy it and get inspired to scrap some yourself!!! Here is the video:

Now be sure to hop over to the Studio Forty blog for even more inspiration – my design team colleagues have created beautiful projects that you should definitely take a look at too! Stay tuned for more tutorial posts next month!! See you then!

Happy scrapping,
