My Little Cub

Hi there. It's Heather with you today with the first of my layouts using the Freestyle kit. What a fabulous variety of products there are in this kit! I was able to create three very different pages, with very different themes and feels, all from the one kit.

Here's my first layout:

I had decided to use this photo of my son when he was little. I then picked up the stencil and saw the fluer-de-lis image. I couldn't believe it as this is the logo for the Cubs movement. It's on the toggle on Connor's scarf but you can't see it here.

Of course, I had to make a feature of the fluer-de-lis then. I used a piece of cardstock left over from the August kit, because it matched Connor's t-shirt. I took the bottle of Silk Luster, poured a little onto a craft mat, picked it up with a baby wipe and applied it through the stencil. If I had applied the Silk Luster straight onto the stencil, it would have run under the stencil and made an imperfect image as it's a very thin liquid. The end result is amazing. The silver really gives it some wow factor.

I then took the wet edge of the stencil and randomly stamped lines on my page with it. I punched out some of the star shapes and glued them at the end of the lines so they looked like shooting stars.

I also used the stenciling method above to stencil another pattern behind the photo mat. Don't you love having multiple stencils on one? I cut quite a few of the tickets out and used them as a feature down the side of the photo mat.

I finished off the page with a mix of different sized zig-zag and straight stitching and ran my journalling across the bottom.

If you would like more information about this kit you can email or check out the website here. Don't forget you get three instructional videos with each kit!

Happy scrappin'!
