Cut-It-Out!!

Happy Friday everyone...or should I say Fabulous Friday!  It's time to check out the new challenge this week for Fabulous Friday at Frosted Designs.  This week, the ladies have posted a really fun challenge - Fussy Cutting!  If you are wondering what that means, it's basically finding a design you like in one of your papers and using your scissors to hand cut the design and then use it on your layout or project.  It's that easy!!  Patterned paper with flowers, is really great for fussy cutting.  You can cut them and layer them on your page and even use pop dots to add dimension.

I had a really fun sheet of paper from Sassafras that was made for Fussy Cutting.  Everything on my layout...flowers, borders, little cards...were all cut  from that one sheet of paper.  I had fun getting all of the pieces cut out and then arranging them on my background paper for a one of a kind look.  I hope you will come over and play along with us this week for the chance to win an awesome prize!!

I saw your layout there this morning! I feel like a nerd, but I didn't know what fussy cutting was! I thought it was "messy" cutting! LOL I might have to give it a try! Love your cute layout!
