Need I Say More?

Hello there. It's Heather again today. I have my second layout using the amazing Freestyle kit to share with you.

When I first opened the kit, the first paper I pulled aside for a background was this "I Love You' paper. I love text as a background and this repeating sentence says it all. Hence my title, "Need I Say More?" If you look closely you can see that some of the sentences have pink around them. I highlighted these sentences by outlining them in pencil. This draws the eye in just enough to make those pink sections stand out and become focal points of the background design.

This was a simple page to make. The strips behind the photo are just brand strips and leftovers from trimming up the "I Love You" paper, reversed. I used the heart stencil to trace the shape onto cardstock and just roughly cut it out.

To make the metal embellishment silver, I first gave it a rough coat of gesso. I then just painted it with the Silk Luster. I cut the doily from the kit in half, then just painted the pattern with the Silk Luster as well. Easy! How versatile is this product! I'll be using it again that's for sure.

 I finished off the page with  a small piece of ribbon and a title. I unrolled some cotton and adhered it under the photo. I adhered the background paper and the photo on angles to add a bit of interest.

Thanks so much for dropping by. If you like this kit, or are interested in receiving a kit plus 3 video instructions each month, email or check out the website here.

Happy scrappin'!



  1. Such a lovely layout Heather

  2. Yip I just love this layout. I think because it is so clean.. I really do love clean. The pink phrases is such a cool idea...:D

  3. I love this because it's just decorated enough to enhance it without taking the focus away from the photograph
