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,

20th Anniversary – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone, today I´m sharing my first The Wild Hare Kits layout with the August Deluxe kit. For this layout I chose to use the monthly sketch as my starting point.

I really like this sketch very much! It has all the elements that make me swoon.

This is my take on the sketch and here is how I created the page:

I first printed several pieces of the same photo strip (I love the repeated look on a page, it adds texture and interest in my opinion).

Next I used the Echo Epic Triangles stencil with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink to add some pattern onto the background. I applied the ink very randomly thru the stencil, but still kept to the basic layout of the sketch and positioned the triangles about there, where the stars are on the sketch.

After that I cut tiny paper strips from three different (see product list in the end of my post) Flower Market papers that came with my August kit and arranged  them onto the page to my liking. The tiny banners and the journaling emphemera piece are from the Flower Market collection also. If you´d like to take a better look on my August kit, you can see the video HERE. I didn´t yet adhere the paper strips on place as I still wanted to add some stamping and details.

On my unboxing video I told how much I liked the stamp set that came with my kit. Here you can see the stamping added is done with the stamps from that stamp set. I love these tiny words and sentiments and they work so well with the layout theme too!!

The tiny stamped hearts had only a black outline on them, so they were screaming for some colour :). I took a peach toned marker and coloured them all in that tone. This adds a nice detail to the layout.

For finishing touches I added the lovely Bramble Fox Petite Perspextives acrylic stars to the page. I really like these stars and they work so well with the rest of the page. Also, the colour scheme of my kit is just perfect!! Exactly what I was looking for to work with.

Here are a few detail photos of the layout:

I had a great time scrapping with this month´s sketch! Be sure to check back on the 19th for another Wild Hare Kits project :).

Happy scrapping,
