DIY Gingerbread house – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and happy Sunday!! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and ate lots of cookies and got time to relax with your family and loved ones! I´ve created a layout for today´s The Wild Hare Kits post featuring one of our family Christmas traditions: baking and decorating a gingerbread house.

For this layout I used the Heidi Swapp Winter Wonderland collection paper called „Candycane Forest“. I cut the paper and turned it around to create a two-toned look to the background.  Now it looks like I used two separate papers, but I actually just turned a piece of paper around and adhered them together with the washi tapes from the same collection.

Then I printed out two color photos of my son decorating the gingerbread house and arranged them onto the page. For decoration I used plenty oft he Crate Paper Snowflake collection Ephemera pieces, some Freckled Fawn wood veneer elements that were in my kit as well as some of the Crate Paper Snowflake collection stickers. The title is created with the cute Thickers that came with my kit and I also added some older round Jenni Bowlin alpha stickers from my stash, as they match the colours of the page perfectly. I finished the page off with faux stitching around the edges and by adding the journaling.

So what kind of traditions are typical for your family? Have you documented them on a scrapbook layout yet? I hope this layout inspires you to do so!! If you create something inspired by this page, do remember to tag #thewildharekits. Wishing you a lovely weekend and a very creative new year!!! See you next month again with new projects!!

By the way, I´ve created a style profile for January, where I noted nothing else but: I wish for a happy and fun kit for January. So it´s going to be total surprise! I cannot wait to see it and share it with you guys.

But for now, I´m wishing you all a great New Years eve and may 2020 be an awesomely creative one for all of us 🙂 !! xxx, Sanna

Christmas cards – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and happy Monday, it´s my turn for a Wild Hare Kits project share today and I am up with a set of Christmas cards.

I totally fell in love with my December kit and there were so many beautiful papers in there that were perfect for cardmaking, so I could not resist!

Here is what I created:

For my first card I used the Pink Paislee Together For Christmas paper number 8 (I had some left over from my „Now + Then“ layout) as background paper and I added some Heidi Swapp Winter Wonderland washi tape on both sides of the paper. For finishing touches I added ephemera from the Crate Paper Snowflake collection.

For my second card I again used the Pink Paislee Together For Christmas paper number 3. I love this flower pattern!!! I just cut the paper in size and adhered it onto a white card base and added some of the gorgeous Thickers and a stamped word as a Christmas greeting onto the card. Fast and easy!

For my last card I used one of my very favorite papers from my December kit: The Pink Paislee Together For Christmas paper number 7. Isn´t this paper just absolutely beautiful??? I again cut the paper in right size, adhered it onto the card base and then added a tiny piece of the paper number 8 (the b-side) on top. I fussy cut the red paper into a banner from and added two Freckled Fawn wood veneer pieces for decor. The tiny wood veneer Christmas tree got some Nuvo Drops on it for additional decor (those are from my own stash).

I hope you get inspired to create a few cards with your kit too!! If you do so, remember to use #thewildharekits, so the team girls can come and admire your work! We always love to see what you make!

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas time!

Dream Big! – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing another The Wild Hare Kits layout with you and this time again with a process video.

For this layout I´ve used the November monthly cut file which is a leaf pattern. I´ve arranged it onto a piece of white cardstock into a wreath form and the cut it with my Silhouette Cameo.

So I used both the positive and the negative pieces of the cut file image and the paper. I left the negative background piece white and added spray ink splatters here and there for interest and the leaves got a spray ink treatment in the same colours. Then I arranged the inked leaves onto the background piece and decorated everything with sequins and 1canoe2 Willow collection die cut shapes.

The paper on the background is by Pink Paislee, form their Again and Again collection (paper No. 6). For finishing touches I´ve added lots of Spiegelmom scraps sequins – the Wild Hare Kit exclusive ones that came with my kit. Also the title is created using the Puffy Alpha Stickers by American Crafts. These alphas also came in my kit.

So the only thing I´ve used outside from my kit were the spray inks and the white cardstock. Everyting else was included in my kit. And this time I´ve recorded a process video for you to watch too. Hope you like it!

I hope you get inspired by this layout idea and scrap a little yourself! If you are interested in trying the Wild Hare Kits, just hop over here and fill your personal style profile. And once you get your kit, do tag us and use #thewildharekits, so we can find you and come and admire your projects!

See you soon with another project!

Birthday card

Hello and happy Monday! Today I´d like to share a 50th birthday card with you. I´ve used plenty of my older paper stash papers to create this card in orange and red tones. This is not a combination I do often, as orange does not happen to be one of my favorite colours, but in this case, the card had to have these colours.

I started by adhering the polka dot paper onto a white card base (size A5). Then I die cut the 5 and the 0 from various patterned papers using Tonic Studios die cut dies. I adhered the numbers in place with liquid adhesive (also by Tonic).

Next I added plenty of bits and bobs like enamel circles, Nuvo Pearls, puff stickers and a die cut speech bubble piece. The sentiment is done using Thickers alphas. For finishing touches I also outlined the numbers with a black pen.

Since my card was bigger than a regular card size, I had to make a matching envelope for it. I used a 12×12 patterned paper from my older paper stash for that and folded it into an envelope. For decoration I added some Basic Grey stickers onto the envelope. Now these go back quite a few years, but they really work well with all the papers and patterns here.

That´s it for today, be sure to stop by on Thursday when I will be sharing another The Wild Hare Kits August kit project here on my blog :).

Happy crafting,

16th Birthday Card for a boy

Helllo everyone, I shared a teen boy birthday card two days ago and while I was at it, I made a second card in a similar style.

This one is a little bigger in size, measuring 5,5 x 5,5 inches. For this card I´ve again used the Lattice stencil from my STAMPlorations stencil line, but this time applying the blue and green colour in a more random way and also fading the color towards the edges of the card.

Fior decoration I again used some older stash stickers to create the focal point and some banners on the upper right corner. I stamped the sentiment using hashtag stamps by Tim Holtz and added the number 16 (Thickers) into the middle. For additional decor there are again some Glimmer Glaze splatters as well as Nuvo Confetti Stars here and there.

I really enjoyed creating these simple cards a lot – haven´t been doing any masculine cards for a while..

Wishing you a lovely day and happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
