Wild Hare Kits: Clair Scraplifts Iris ❤

Hello! Hello! Did you know that the Wild Hare Kits Design Team have been busy scraplifting each other all month? If you've not had chance to check out our work this month, now is the time! I'm over on the Wild Hare Kits Blog today, sharing my scraplift of the amazing Iris Fox.

I was so happy to hear that I would be scraplifting Iris! She has a style that, somehow, combines structure and whimsy and I knew that there would be a lot of fantastic layouts for me to choose from ❤

I knew that I needed to find a layout that I could 'transcribe' to 6x8 - which is the standard size for most of my layouts - and, in the end, I lost at least an hour or two scrolling through Iris' Instagram feed (@whimsyfox) and found one of her older layouts that called my name. (Can you spot which one it was? Head on over to the Wild Hare Kits Blog to check whether you're correct!)

First, I added a few embellishments from earlier Wild Hare Kits to the leftovers of my Petite Kit - it still amazes me how each kit co-ordinates so well with my stash - and with all of my older kits! To 'Square Off' the layout a little, I added some washi to the bottom, then concentrated on a 'Grid' for the rest of the layout.

Of course, it needed to be a little smaller than the one on Iris' layout, so each section is a little smaller than 2 x 2 in. I cut down some of the cardstock from my kit and layered them with some embellishments for a little added detail. Then I added a small 'Title' from the stack of Reset Girl Labels I received in my kit. (I love them!) The little leaves, behind the label are stolen from one of the Pinkfresh Studios Frames I received in my kit - they were just the right size and colour to add a little detail to my layout!

Finally, I added a little stitching. Iris's layout includes some hand-stitching but I love my machine - and I also wasn't sure I would be able to fit hand stitches between each element as neatly.

I'm so happy with how my scraplift turned out - and I have several more of Iris' layouts saved in my favourites, so I'm sure there will be more scraplifting of Iris in the near future!
