Fall 7 times – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello lovelies and happy Wednesday!! Today I´m sharing my first March The Wild Hare Kits project with you guys over at The Wild Hare Kits blog. There were some unexpected problems regarding my March kit, as it decided to take a world tour before arriving to me  (currently in Sydney, Australia and not here yet). So I had to make a plan „B“ on what to create with for this month. I took all my previous The Wild Hare Kits and pulled product together from those.

Here is the result of the DIY kit building:

You can see on the video what products I chose to use for this layout – all from my leftover kits! Since the kits always have so much in them, it is really easy to put together small layout kits with the residue pieces! I love my DIY March layout kit so much! And besides, I get to use up all my residue pieces this way.

For today´s layout I used the mothly sketch very loosely.

I´ve also recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch. Hope you like it!! I´ve got Crate Paper Flower Market, Dear Lizzy She´s Magic, Pinkfresh Studio Office Hours, Bramble Fox embellishments and Jen Hadfield This is family featured on my layout.

I hope I could inspire you to take a second look on those leftover kits of yours and get your scrap on with them. And when you share your WHK projects, remember to use #thewildharekits, so we can find you!! We´d love to see what you guys create with the kits!

Happy scrapping,

Work Hard – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello lovelies and happy Sunday! Today I´m sharing yet another scrapbook layout with you. This one is again created with The Wild Hare Kits October Petite Kit and as my inspiration for this particular page I used the October Sketch. Here it is:

And now to my take on it:

I mainly used the Pinkfresh Studio Office Hours collection to create this page. I immediately knew I wanted to use the „Hard Work“ paper for this page when I saw the sketch. So instead of using hexagons I used circles which I simply fussy cut from the paper. There were plenty to choose from, so I picked the ones I found most suitable. The ones with clocks kinda fit the working day/life theme quite well.

I first fussy cut and arranged all pieces onto a piece of white cardstock (that is from my own stash, not from the kit). Then I added stamping (for interest) with a roller stamps – again from my stash – and layered various embellishments from the Office Hours Mixed Embellishment Pack on top of the fussy cut paper circles.

Next I took some blue Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (from my stash) and mixed some of it with water. That creates a liquid you can create „ink“ droplets with. I added a few here and there, following the sketch, for detail.

I added some faux stitching around the circle elements with a black pen for additional interest.

Also there are some Office Hours Chipboard Stickers on the page here and there too for texture and interest. I used pens and office supply things, because, obviously it´s a work-themed layout.

I kept to a very clean and simple look without adding too much stamping and media as I wanted to hightlight the corgeous papers and embellishments. I also didn´t do a subtitle under the layout title, but instead added some journaling to the page.

If you like this month´s sketch, do give a try on it! We´d love to see what you make, so be sure to tag us (#wildharekits), so we can come and take a look on your take!!! Wishing you a great time with the Wild Hare Kits and their sketch!

Happy scrapping,

Rio Negro minibook – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone, it´s time to share another The Wild Hare Kits January guest design team spot project with you guys today. Last summer we made the most amazing trip to Brazil to my dear friend and also visited the rainforest and stayed over night at the Amazon river with them. For me it was a trip of a lifetime and I wanted to capture our Amazon river experiences into a special minibook.

I printed plenty of photos with my Canon Selphy and chose to use a pre-made minibook as my starting point for this travel album.  Here is what the album looks like:

Read the steps on the Wild Hare Kits blog here.

I printed plenty of photos and wanted to fit them into one album, so I had to cheat a little and add 6×6 papers as additional pages to fit it all in and have enough space for journaling too.

I really like how the stenciled pattern look like on the pages!

Some of the papers I´ve used are from my own stash – I added similar toned papers as additional pages, since they fit the general color sheme of the minibook better.

The overall look of the album is very clean and simple with just small decorational details and embellishments. I wanted to concentrate to the photos this time and added just tiny bits and bobs here and there for interest.

This page is one of my faves, the funny photos of my husband and me fit the „fresh start“ cutfile (which I cut slightly smaller with my Silhouette to fit into the minibook) theme really well. See, the boat ride was quite chilly with water spritzing around us as our „captain“ took everything out of his little riverboat :). We drove with full speed“ thru the first river section, so it truly was a „fresh start“ for that day.

I´ve also recorded a short flip-thru video for you to watch, so you get a better look on the finished album. I hope you enjoy watching it! I´ve truly enjoyed creating with this kit and would like to thank Alison for this amazing opportunity and for the perfectly curated kit. It has been a pleasure guesting at Wild Hare Kits!

I still have a few projects up my sleeve and will be sharing those here on my blog during the next days until end of January, so I´m hoping you will drop by to see what I have created with the rest of the kit.

Happy crafting and see you soon,
xxx, Sanna

You fill my heart – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello there everyone, it´s my turn to share another tutorial over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today. This time I again created a scrapbook layout and a set of cards. For this month´s tutorial I´ve also recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch. But first, let me show you the layout.

Valentine´s Day being just around the corner, I wanted to create something love theme related, so I made a scrapbook page about my younger son and a set of love themed clean and simple cards with the new dies. Here is what I created:

Create this layout with following steps:
1) First take a patterned paper from the Fly & Scrap paper collection by Moda Scrap and a sheet of watercolor paper and white Soft Finish Cardstock.
2) Cut several Moda Scrap Leafy Branch die cut dies and cut the branches from the Soft Finish Cardstock with your die cutting machine. Also die cut a few heart forms with the new Buttons die cut die.
3) Take spray inks in purple and blue tones – try to get similar colors to match the patterned paper tones – and spray the die cut branches with the spray inks on a kraft sheet.
4) Now take a watercolor paper and a water mist bottle. There is plenty of residue spray ink on the kraft sheet from misting the branches. Apply some water mist onto the residue spray ink areas on your kraft sheet and then press the watercolor paper onto the wet ink areas to pick up the color with the paper. Dry the layer with a heat tool, then repeat the procedure until you are happy with the result.
5) Now cut the DIY watercolor paper and the Moda Scrap patterned paper in a manner that they together build a full 12×12 inch page. Adhere together.
6) Add ink splatters onto the DIY watercolor paper piece with the same spray inks you used to mist the die cut branches with. This is to mimic the ink splatters on the patterned paper. That way they will better match together.
7) Now start building your page together by adhering the die cut branches on top of the patterned paper feathers pattern and also some towards the DIY watercolor paper strip. Then add the photos in place and decorate the page with a sentiment and some sticker words.
8) Finally embellish with eyelets, liquid pearls and wood veneer hearts. In the end add a stamped sentiment with the Love Sentiments clear stamp set and black stamp ink.

Since there is plenty of DIY watercolor paper left over from the layout process, use those pieces for a set of cards.

Here is how to make the cards:
1) Take the Heart Cutouts die cut die and cut a heart from the DIY watercolor paper first.
2) Next take a residue piece of the Moda Scrap patterned paper and die cut two heart cutout pieces with it from that paper.
3) Take a spray ink and a water tank brush and color all the little hearts with dark purple spray ink. Leave to dry.
4) Adhere the full watercolor paper heart onto a white card base and embellish with the small colored heart pieces. Add a stamped sentiment from the Love Sentiments stamp set. Decorate with liquid pearls and a black pen.
5) For the last card, use the cutout heart die cut piece and a big piece of the DIY watercolor paper to adhere the heart onto. Fill all the open areas of the cutout heart piece with the purple colored small heart pieces. Adhere on place and decorate with liquid pearls.
6) Add a stamped sentiment from the Love Sentiments set and outline with a black pen.

I´ve again recorded a video for you to watch, to give you a better idea of each and every step of the creating process. Hope you enjoy watching the video and get inspired to create some purple toned projects for Valentine´s Day. Have fun and see you in March again,

Happy crafting,
Sanna
