Adventure Awaits - Wild Whisper Blog Hop

Today I'm excited to share with you a new wonderful Canadian Manufacturer who manufactures patterned paper. Wild Whisper manufactures 12x12 paper collections, 4x6 and 3x4 card packs as well as they carry a boutique of embellishments. To kick off the launch of the company, there are 8 designers from across Canada blog hopping and featuring projects using Wild Whisper's "Adventure" and "Holiday Style" collections. 

If you been following the blog hop, you should be coming from Cathy's blog. 


 My project for the blog hop is a scrapbook layout featuring the "Adventure" collection. Grab a cup of your favourite beverage and enjoy the tutorial below so that you'll be able to recreate my layout at home. Make sure to read the entire blog post so that you can head over to the next designer's blog as well as there is another surprise at the bottom of the post. 


To start, take four chipboard pinecones out of the set and lightly apply Vintage Photo Distress Ink overtop each pinecone with a blending tool.


Take one wood fall leaf out of the set and apply Pine Needles Distress ink overtop of it with a blending tool.


To finish off the chipboard and wood elements, apply Emboss It ink to the three cedar trees. Once the ink has been applied, sprinkle Topiary Green Embossing Powder overtop of the trees. Tap off the excess powder from the trees and emboss them with your heat tool. 


To add some extra interest in behind the photo, I cut out 3 stitched rectangles using Elizabeth Craft's Stitched Rectangles die. 


The extra elements that I used to embellish came from the 4"x6" and 3"x4" cards and one of the sheets of patterned paper that has a variety of bears on it. 

You'll also want to choose 2 - 4"x6" cards and 4 - 3"x4" cards out of the Adventure card pack. Find to border strips that you like from the bottom of the patterned paper and cut them off. Make sure to also cut a piece of patterned paper that measures 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" to adhere a card to. 


Before assembling your layout, edge distress the edges of the patterned papers, 4"x6" cards, 3"x4" cards, two border strips and the stitched rectangles. Once the edges have been distressed, ink the edges of the patterned papers, 4"x6" cards, 3"x4" cards, two border strips, stitched rectangles and fussy cut images with Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool.  With all the elements now inked, it's time to assemble your layout.


1. Adhere the 4"x6" journaling card to the other 4"x6" card leaving 1/4" around the top and left hand sides. Once the two cards have been adhered together, adhere the 4"x6" cards 1" from the left and 2" from the top of the grey/black wood paper.
2. Adhere one of the 3"x4" cards 3/8" from the right and 1 1/4" from the bottom of the grey/black wood paper. Adhere a second 3"x4" card 1/8" from the right and 4 5/8" from the top of the grey/black wood paper.
3. Foam square one of the stitched rectangles that has the leaves on it and adhere it 1 3/8" from the left and 1 3/4" from the bottom of the grey/wood paper. Foam square the second stitched rectangle with leaves on it and adhere it 3/8" from the right and 2 1/8" from the top of the grey/black wood paper. 
4. Adhere the fussy cut label image slightly underneath the bottom stitched rectangle. To finish the label, add the date, adhere an arrow at the bottom of the label as well as adhere a chipboard pinecone to the left side of the label.
5. Foam square the third 3"x4" card 7/8" from the bottom and 2 5/8" from the right of the grey/black wood paper.  With the third card now adhered, foam square the bear with writing on it and adhere it to the right of the third card, it will sit on the first 3"x4" card you adhered. Adhere the fourth 3"x4" card to the 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" patterned paper. Foam square the fourth 3"x4" card that's now attached to the patterned paper 7/8" from the left and 5 3/8" from the top of the grey/black wood paper. To finish off this layer, you'll want to foam square the sign marker and adhere it overtop of the second 3"x4" card. To add some extra interest to the sign marker, adhere an arrow to the middle sign.
6. Adhere your picture to the green spot stitched rectangle. Foam square the green spot stitched rectangle 3 7/8" from the left and 4 3/8" from the top of the grey/black wood paper. With the green spot stitched rectangle adhered, lift up the top left hand corner of the rectangle and adhere the wood leaf underneath the corner so that a bit is showing. Place the corner back down and adhere three pinecones in the top left hand corner. 
7. Adhere the first of the two border strips 3 3/8" from the bottom of the grey/black wood paper. Adhere the second border strip slightly overtop of the bottom of the first border strip. With the border strips adhered, foam square the adventure awaits sign slightly underneath the border strips 3 3/8" from the right hand side of grey/black wood paper.
8. Adhere the three trees on the right hand side of the photo. To finish the top of the green spot rectangle, adhere the two arrows.

Your layout is now complete. Here are a few close up pictures of the elements once they've been adhered to the layout.
