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!
