Enjoy the Journey | Wild Hare Kits

Hey friends! I’m the guest designer at Wild Hare Kits this month and I have a project to share with you today using the hand-curated kit that I was sent. You can view the unboxing video of my kit HERE.

Pinkfresh Studio - Out & About - Kelly Janes

I started with a white cardstock base and fussy cut numerous tickets from the Pinkfresh Studio Tickets Patterned Paper from the Out & About Collection. I adhered those fussy cut tickets in the center of the layout.

I also cut strips of paper (roughly 2¼″ each) from the Tickets & Explore Patterned Paper from Out & About and the Love Warrior Patterned Paper from the Dear Lizzy New Day Collection. I never would have thought to mix papers from the Dear Lizzy Collection and the Out & About Collection! This is the great thing about receiving a kit! It takes the guess work out of combining products from different manufacturers! I used my score board to create a crease in the center of each of the strips and folded the papers before adhering them down. I also roughed up the edges of the patterned paper strips using an Edge Distressor.

I took Puffy Stickers from the Out & About Collection along with enamel dots and embellishments from the Mixed Embellishment Pack to embellish the layout. I used one of the larger Die Cuts from Out & About for my title. I also added a bit of stitching through the fussy cut tickets for added texture.

I added my photo and added my jounaling under the photo. This pic was taken of a few of my work friends when we went to Los Angeles for a work conference. We were on the subway and it happened to be my first subway experience. It was awful! HA! The urine smell on the platform was UNBELIEVABLE!

Altenew June 2019 Stand-alone Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hey there friends! I’m so excited to be joining in the Altenew June 2019 Stand-Alone Die New Release blog hop! If you started from the beginning of the hop you would have come from Emily Midgett’s Blog. If you’re just starting here, WELCOME. You can make your way around the entire hop by clicking the link at the bottom of my post.

Altenew - Virginia Rose 3D Die - Color Wheel Die - Kelly Janes

I started my layout today by cutting the new Color Wheel Die three times using scrap paper. I then positioned those die cuts horizontally on a sheet of white cardstock. I then pulled a few mists from my stash that I thought would blend well together (a couple pinks, oranges and yellows) and started spraying the paper, so I essentially used the Color Wheel Die as a stencil. After I removed the scrap pieces of paper I had this really soft, pretty color on my background.

I then cut the Virginia Rose 3D Die multiple times using similar colors as the mists. I assembled the flowers and was AMAZED at the amount of texture those flowers have after they are put together. I especially love the layers that were cut using textured cardstock.

I arranged the flowers using the tone-on-tone technique with the mists. I almost wanted to stop there! HA! The colors and texture was just so pretty! I decided on a black and white photo so it wouldn’t compete with the colors I had on the layout. The photo is of my two dogs sleeping on the couch. We went from itty bitty Shih Tzus to these very large dog so we affectionately call them the “bigs”, so I used the title “My Bigs” for this layout using the Black Alphas from the Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Collection.

This layout was really easy to put together and it actually took my longer to assemble the flowers than it did the entire layout!
