Hello and happy November!

I love fall – but maybe not for the reason you think. Sure, the colours of nature are gorgeous, the sweaters are cozy and the pumpkin spice everything is delicious … but what I love most is how early it gets dark. What? Yup! When its sunny outside I feel like I need to be out and about – walking the dog, yard work, etc. When its dark I like to get into cave-mode in the house and that means loads of scrapbooking time! Now you get me, right!

So far this month I have made a point to get to my scrapbook table every day. Even if just for 15 minutes to clean my workspace for a creating session the next night. This has given me loads of time to really dig into the “orange inspired” Deluxe Kit I am playing with (check out my unboxing video here). I cannot believe how fun this kit is and how versatile it really is – it is so much more than orange, as you will see.

For this post, I am using my “orange” kit to create my take on this month’s The Wild Hare Kits Sketch. This sketch features circle photos, some paper tearing and suggests a little mixed media too. Of course. that is my interpretation, your take could be totally different – and we love that!

Here is the November sketch:

Now here is my take on the sketch! I flipped my orange kit on its head and focused on the green elements the hand-curating team included and created or altered some to match using some Shimmerz Paints from my stash:

The Jen Hadfield paper with all the words and phrases on it featured some random words highlighted in pink – I used some green Shimmerz Paints to cover up the pink and highlighted a few more too. A bit still shows through but when you look at the full layout I think it works!

Using my Shimmerz I also created a bit of a mixed media background. If you spy a little bit of texture back there, I am so excited to say it is a stencil from Artplorations stencils from my stash featuring the design of Sanna Lippert! Sanna is one of our very one Design Team members. How cool is that!

The Design Team is scraplifting Sanna this month, I thought it would be neat to double honour this super talented creative and use her stencil for my sketch take too.

Have a crafty November!
