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,

The Wild Hare Kits September Wrap-Up

Hi, it´s that time of the month again, so today I´ll be sharing my last September The Wild Hare Kits project with you and include a wrap-up video of all this months projects, created with this kit. Also, in the video I´ll be sharing what´s left of my kit after finishing all the layouts/cards etc.

So here is my last September project – a set of cards again.

I adored the Shimelle Sparkle City stickers that were in my kit, but didn´t find a perfect sport for the cars and the cute pigeons, soooo I used them on cards instead. I love, love, love my purple and pink toned and water color look kit to pieces!!! If you can´t remember, my kit consisted of „Just A Little Lovely“ collection and Shimelle´s Sparkle City collection. Also a Carta Bella stencil called „Garden Geometric Stencil“ came with my kit.

So what I´ve done is I first added some stenciling onto every card base using Distress Inks with a blending brush. Next I fussy cut some papers to create a background/cluster to the card. Then I added the stickers on top. Some are adhered directly to the paper, others I adhered using 3D foam pads.

For additional interest I added either black ink splatters or stamping with black stamp ink (using roller sentiment stamps mainly – those are from my own stash) or I combined both :). I know I´m repeating myself, but I love the pastellic colours and the purple and the watercolor look of my kit so VERY much!!! Thanks Allison, for this amazing kit! It´s kinda scary how well she „gets“ me already..

And now for the wrap-up video – I hope you enjoy it:

I really enjoyed my September kit! It was perfect in every way! I know I said I´m going to do a journal with the 6×8 papers, but that is how it goes sometimes, eh? First you have an idea when unboxing the kit and in the end you end up creating totally different kind of projects with the stuff :).

So for next month I´m planning a mini.. let´s see what happens :-). See you soon (on the 2nd of October!) with the October unboxing video!!! Excited to see what kind of kit is waiting for me in October.

Happy scrapping and crafting,

You proved them wrong layout – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone, today I´m sharing my 4th layout, created with the September The Wild Hare Kits Petite Kit. I so adore this months kit. I love the colours and how everything in the kit works so well together!!!

For today´s project I´ve created a 12×12 layout using the second Just A Little Lovely collection paper by Pink Fresh Studio that was in my kit. I LOVE the b-sides of the papers in my kit!!! This collection has everything I love in it!!


For this one I´ve used following steps:

  1. Using the Garden Geometric Stencil by Carta Bella I´ve applied Distress Ink in yellow and blue tones onto the patterned paper with a blending brush thru the stencil.
  2. Next I added some spray ink splatters in green, pink and blue tones next to the stenciled areas.
  3. I then arranged the 3 black and white photos of my boy onto the page and matted one of the Sparkle City papers by Shimelle onto the cutfile. I love this cutfile, by the way! It´s perfect for so many different types of layouts, not just only for school theme!!!
  4. After matting the cut file I added some Sparkle City stickers onto it to create a look of book names on the book spines.
  5. Next I started arranging paper strips (Sparkle City papers from my kit) onto the background under and next tot he cutfile.
  6. I fussy cut a tag and a few journaling „speech bubbles“ and added them to the layout.
  7. Before adhering all the paper pieces onto the page I added some stamped sentiments for additional interest to the layout.
  8. Finally I added a glitter alpha sticker title to the page and a few black ink splatters here and there.

I´ve also recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch. I hope it inspires you to scrap a little yourself!!! When using your Wild Hare Kits, remember to tag us and use #wildharekits doing so!! We´d love to see what you create with the kits!!

I´ll be back tomorrow sharing my last TWHK September project and a wrap-up video of all projects created with this months kit. Also I´ll be showing you what is left of my kit after scrapping lots :). So be sure to check back tomorrow for more.

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!

Mr. Grimasse! – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello and happy Sunday!!! Today I´m sharing my second project created with the Wild Hare Kits September Petite Kit. This time the layout features the Carta Bella stencil from my kit with some Sparkle City papers and stickers.

For this layout I´ve used a piece of 8×11 inch white cardstock as my starting point and then combined Shimelle´s Sparkle City paper and stickers with the Carta Bella Garden Geometric Stencil.

This layout I about my dad, who I lost way too early. I really like this photo of him so very much, because now I know from whom my boys inherited the „funny face in photos“-personality :-). So no wonder I cannot get a decent photo of my boys…ever! Always pulling faces, the two. I´d love to see my dad to see how similar my boys are to him…

And now to the steps – here is what I did:

  1. Take the Garden Geometric Stencil by Carta Bella and place it on a white piece of cardstock in the size of 8×11 inches. Take a blending brush and apply Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink thru the stencil onto the white cardstock. Repeat throughout the whole paper.
  2. Next take the Sparkle City „office paper with rays“ by Shimelle and cut the rays apart with scissors. Now arrange them onto the stenciled background paper leaving a little open space between each „ray“. Adhere on place. Now arrange the photos onto the page. I used two exact same photos for a repeated look, which creates more interest to the page in my opinion.
  3. Now take a black pen and add faux stitching to the blue toned paper „rays“.
  4. Adhere the photos on place and attach stickers and a fussy cut tag next to the photos into a cluster.
  5. Stamp small sentiments with black ink onto the rays for a fun detail and add a few black ink splatters here and there for additional interest.
  6. Outline the layout using a black marker and add the journaling.

I´ve again recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch! I hope you like it and get inspired by it. By the way, we (as in the design team girls) would love to see your The Wild Hare Kit creations, so be sure to tag us on social media and use #thewildharekits, so we can find your lovely work and come and leave some love!!
