Fussy Cutting

Hi everyone,

Today I have a technique to share with you - Fussy Cutting. What is Fussy Cutting? Well its simply just cutting out designs on patterned paper. It just sounds harder than it is.





You can see in this layout that all the roses down the left have been cut out individually and then layered. They were all cut from the one piece of 12" x 12" piece of patterned paper then arranged on the page. Some were raised using foam dots to give dimension and depth.

It really isn't  a hard technqiue but sometimes when people see some of the terms used in scrapbooking they are overhwelmed and think they can't do it. But like I said this technique is simply cuting and pasting like you did back at school...lol

It is a fun technique and I would love to see you give it a go. If you want to show off what you have done using this technique, then why not pop over to Scrap It With Attitude and enter our current Celebrations and Fussy Cutting Challenge.

I hope today I have introduced you to a new technique and given you the inspiration you need to give it a go.

Happy Scrapping
Cheers,
Narelle
