Just Be You – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday!!! Today I´m up with another The Wild Hare Kits February Petite kit project share over at their blog. This layout idea started with the previous layout I posted Tuesday here on my blog.

See, after creating the first page I had half of the ray paper left over and thought it might make for a great second page to be combined into a double page layout in the end. So I went with the idea and this is what I ended up creating:

I used mainly Pink Paislee papers on this layout – both from the February kit as well as from my November kit (the vellum). I also combined bits and bobs from my previous kits to the layout – parts like: Dear Lizzy She´s Magic Feeling Fine paper, Willow die cut shapes by 1Canoe2 and Jen Hadfield stickers, also from my November 2019 kit.

I thought it would be fun to combine yesterday´s layout and this one to a double page layout. One side featuring my older and one side featuring my younger son. I´ve also tucked personal journaling behind both photos – I hope my boys one day will take a better look at all my scrapbooks and then discover these hidden messages to them :).

I´ve again recorded a video for you to watch – I hope you like it!

And finally, here is the double side layout – I love how it turned out!!!

I hope I could inspire you to take a better look at The Wild Hare Kits and scrap a little yourself! Maybe do a double page even? If you do, remember to tag #thewildharekits, so we can come and see what you did :).

Happy scrapping,

A set of baby cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, it´s my turn to share a set of „build a Hippo“ baby cards over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog. I adore this little die cut die so much! It´s perfect for so many occations and like made for creating baby cards! And while I was at it, a created a set of three. You never know when you need one!

This is how I created the cards:

Step 1: First take a sheet of White Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut 3 sets of Hippos. And don´t forget to die cut the feet six times!!
Step 2: Next take a sheet of Soft Sky and Dusky cardstock and die cut two sets with the Stitched Rounded Rechtangle from the blue paper and one set from the lilac one.
Step 3: Take a white Soft Finish Cardstock sheet (or glitter cardstock) and die cut three sets with the Postage Stamp Rectangles die cut die.
Step 4: Ink the hippo pieces with grey and pink stamp ink, but leave the eyes and teeth white.

Step 5: Now cut blue and purple patterned paper into a card size from the polka-dotted „Thinking about Polinesia“ paper. Adhere onto the card base.
Step 6: Attach a piece of ribbon in blue and pink onto the cards, then adhere the rechtangle pieces on place. Start with the postage stamp piece and adhere the rounded rectangle on top.
Step 7: Add a stamped sentiment using the Ahoy Sentiments or the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 stamp set and black stamp ink.
Step 8: Color the tiny eye pieces with a black marker and adhere on place.

To give you a better idea of each and every step, I´ve again recorded a video for your to watch. I hope you like it!

I hope I could inspire you to play with your die cut dies a little today and create a few cards yourself! I´ll be back with another project next month.

Until then, happy crafting!

You are magic – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing my first layout, created with the current January 2020 The Wild Hare Kits Deluxe Kit. I so like my surprise kit and enjoy creating with it!

The embellishments were perfect for the monthly sketch, so I started my crafty month by scrapping a layout based on the sketch.

This is it and now to my take/my layout:

I used the Dear Lizzy She´s Magic collection papers to create the grid onto the background. Also the embellishments are mainly from the same collection – except for the puffy stickers. I really like them alot!

And I added lots of the chipboard stickers as embellishments to the page following the sketch. It´s so easy to create, when everything works together so well. That´s why I like working with hand curated kits!

I´ve sneaked some stamping (done with a Carta Bella stamp set from my August 2019 kit) and also added some word stickers here and there (those were from my October 2019 kit and by Pebbles).

I´ve recorded a video for you to watch the start-to-finish process – hope you like it:

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and will give the sketch a try yourself! If you share your projects – created with the Wild Hare Kits – on social media, do remember to tag us (#thewildharekits), so we can find you!! Have a great, creative day!!

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!

Happy scrapping,
