Hello brother – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone, today I have something special to share with you! KittyK8 and myself put up a little collaboration of our own for March as it turned out that her kit didn´t arrive to her, but instead is somewhere in Hungary at the moment (funny enough, next to Austria) and my kit went to Sydney (Australia, where Kate lives)!

So she contacted me to inform me about that and we figured, since both of us are still waiting for their March The Wild Hare Kits to arrive, we´d challenge each other with something else. So we pulled all our previous kits together and tried to put a DIY kit from our leftover WHK kits together that would be as similar as possible.

Here is mine:

I´ve got plenty of Pink Paislee Truly Grateful in this kit. Then some Pinkfresh Studio Office Hours, some Shimelle Sparkle City as well as Field Trip collection and Pink Paislee Again & Again papers as well as tiny bits of Flower Market by Carta Bella as well as Pinkfresh Studio Just a Little Lovely. The embellishments are by Brambe Fox, Pink Paislee, Pinkfresh Studio, Spiegelmom Scraps and Maggie Holmes. Also I used the monthly February cutfile for this kit.

And here is what I created:

I used the Pinkfresh Studio Office Hours „Inspiration“ paper as my layout base and added some Pink Paislee Truly Grateful and Shimelle´s Field Trip collection papers to the background. Then I went crazy with fussy cutting. I used plenty of the Pink Paislee Truly Grateful collection 2×2 inch papers and fussy cut words and images. I also added the monthly cutfile as well as some Bramble Fox acrylic embellishments to the layout. I had also picked the Pink Paislee Again & Again collection flower paper to my kit, but in the end decided not to use it at all. As I am scrapping a boy page, I intentionally used words and other images than flowers.

Creating my own kit from leftover kits was so much fun! You should definitely try out making one yourself. And then scrapping with it. I still have so much left from this kit – I could go on and make a few more projects with it.

And now I´m really excited to see what Kate created with her kit!!! She has more flowers going on in hers. I had the Pink Paislee Again & Again paper prepared for fussy cutting flowers, but in the end intentionally decided against it. I did a boy layout, so using flowers was not the first thing that came to my mind, so I stuck to words and other images than flowers. I´m excited to see, how much Kate was able to use on her page and how it turned out!

I hope we could inspire you to use up all the leftovers from your previous kits. It´s really lots of fun to create mini kits from leftover product and then challenge yourself to scrap with those. We´d love to see what you made, so be sure to tag us (@thewildharekits) while sharing on social media!!!

See you again tomorrow with my monthly wrap-up and then in April with the unboxing again!

Happy scrapping,

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,

1. Schultag – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello lovelies and happy September!! Today I am sharing another The Wild Hare Kits layout project with you. This one is created using the August Deluxe Kit still as I am eagerly waiting for my parcel to arrive. But no worries, there is still plenty of material left in my August kit, so I will just share the last layouts created with that kit during the next days with you and then, when my parcel arrives, start working with the September kit – and share the uxboxing fun and much more! Can´t wait!!!

However, lets start by sharing another August kit project first:

This is a layout created using the Maggie Holmes (Crate Paper) Sunny Days specialty paper, combined with the Crate Paper Wild Heart paper on the background. I´ve also added some leftover papers from my January The Wild Hare Kit on both sides of the layout. I did a guest design team gig with The Wild Hare Kits back then and that was a piece of paper that was left over from my kit back then. Why not use it here, as it perfectly matches the layout theme and colours.

I started this layout by wiping some acrylic paint (Turquoise Green by Amsterdam) onto the background with the plastic spatula.

Next I arranged all the fussy cut paper pieces onto the page. After that I took some alphas (I didn´t have any in my kit, so I have been using some from my own stash) and added them to the page using tweezers, as the alphas are really tiny and hard to attacht without them.

I also added some older decor elements like Amy Tangerine Enamel Dots (also from my own stash – not from the kit!) because I found that they worked perfectly with the kit elements.

For finishing touches I outline some of the enamel dots with a black pen, added stamped details here and there using the Flower Market clear stamp set from my kit. It is really so very versatile and has worked with every single layout I´ve created, despite the layout theme!!

Tomorrow morning we start with the school season here in Austria again so this page is a perfect ending for the summer holidays. Which, as my boys see it, always end too soon 🙂 . But honestly, I am not ready for fall yet either 😉 …

I hope you enjoyed today´s The Wild Hare Kit inspiration piece. The kits are hand-curated and once you fill in a style profile, you will get a personalized, for your purposes and wishes customized kit. I guarantee you will love it, if you give it a try!! Here is where you can look up all details and start with your own style profile :)! See you tomorrow with another layout – I´ve still got 2 more to share, plus a set of Clean & Simple cards, so we are good to go until Wednesday.

Happy scrapping,

Layout with The Wild Hare Kits kit

Hi there lovelies and happy Friday!! Last month I had the honour of doing a guest design team gig over at the Wild Hare Kit kit club and I loved it! I noticed that I´ve really missed scrapbooking alot! And now I just cannot stop scrapping..

So, therefore even if my GDT month is gone, I´ve still got some papers left from my Deluxe Kit and I am using them all up. So be prepared for a few more layouts to come. And besides, we took like 4000 Fotos on our vacation to Brazil last summer, so there is plenty to scrap about still.

Here is my latest layout:

I did a bit of fussy cutting and also punched circles and butterflies for the page and alighned all the bits and bobs along the patterned paper edges. But before I adhered everything on place, I gave the background a Glimmer Mist treatment with Gold And Aquamarine tones. I also sneaked some stamp images onto the background (stamp by VivaLasVegaStamps). Very light and subtle stamping.

To get the journaling stand out a bit better from the leafy background paper, I applied some gesso with a paint brush to the area I wanted to have my journaling on. That way it´s more readable. That´s it for today. Since I´ve been scrapping so much, my white cardstock stack has reduced dramatically 🙂 … time to order some more, I think! It feels so good to be back at scrapping again. I also noticed that I´m adding much more journaling to the pages at the moment, feeling the need to put the words down on paper. Recording and documenting those memories!

See you soon with another layout maybe!

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,
