  2. Stencil the diamond lattice as per pic using the picked raspberry and once dry lightly stencil over with the pumice stone until the picked raspberry is gently softened in colour. The lattice on the LHS page is 1cm from the left edge of the page. The lattice on the RHS page is 4cm from the bottom of the page and 2 1/2cm from the right edge of the page.

3.  Layer page as follows:

    • Punch a Lattice Border from the KO Salmon Cardstock and vertically adhere 12cm away from the left page edge. Cut a 3 1/2cm wide piece of C114 005 and adhere overlapping the lattice border.
    • Cut the red stripes from C114 002 and adhere flush up against LHS of 2nd
    • Cut a piece of C114003 to 30.5cm X 16.5cm/KO Salmon Cardstock to 12cm X 12.5cm/C114007 to 15cm X 15cm
    • Cut out the green frame on the far right top corner of the back of a sheet of C114003. Mat a photo on KO Salmon Cardstock to use in the square of the green frame and cut the top of the green frame to layer on far left of page by the “Free Spirit” Title.
    • Colour your chipboard as desired. We used the pumice stone and the faded denim very lightly over the picked raspberry and peeled paint.  Adhere as per pic.
    • For the cluster on the right side cut out the frame on the top of the back of C114003 and adhere flush up against the right edge of the page and 6cm from the top of the page. Cut a piece of KO Salmon Cardstock to 10.5cm X 10cm/ “The Best” Title and the beige frame from C114002/C114005 to 7.5cm X 3cm and a die cut feather from C114004


  1. Continue to layer page as follows:
    • Fussy cut the floral arrangement on the bottom right of C114005 and adhere to bottom right of 2nd
    • Now ensuring that you have sufficient paper cut a 15cm square from the bottom left of C114005 with the feathers floating down and a 30.5cm X 11.5cm piece of green stripe from C114005.
    • Punch a filmstrip border from KO Salmon Cardstock and C114004 as well as cut out the wave of leaves as per pic. Adhere all as per pic above.
