Mom & me – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone, and welcome to another The Wild Hare Kits scraplift challenge. This month the design team girls are scraplifting Jess Claire´s work.

Here is the layout I lifted:

I created a 12×12 inch layout based on Jess´s work, but other than that I pretty much kept to the design. Here is what I ended up making:

I used plenty of papers on this page, wripping them, like Jess had done on her page. I also added lots of ink splatters to the background like she did on her page.

I wanted to add lots of detail around the photo, so I added some stamping with the Dear Lizzy stamp set that came with my kit.

I even used the paper that I was not that much fond of on this layout and actually liked how it blended into the other papers and colors. Can you see it above, tucked behind the photo?

I chose this page by Jess, because I liked the way she had used the patterned papers on her page! I haven´t done paper tearing for a long time and it was really fun layering all the papers on top of each other. I also liked the way she had added the little ephemera pieces in between the papers. I did the same with the chipboard pieces!

For a better idea on the actual process, I´ve also recorded a video for you to watch!

If you get inspired by our scraplift challenges, do remember to tag us, so we can find you and come and admire your work (use: #thewildharekits).

Wishing you all a lovely day,
Happy crafting,

30 Days of Thankful minibook – The Wild Hare Kits

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!!!

Happy scrapping,
