Last Scrapper Standing #5 - Fussy Cutting!

Hello blog readers!  Susan here.  I'm presenting this week's Last Scrapper Challenge at Memorable Seasons and I'm so excited to see what all our participants come up with.

This week's challenge is a "FUSSY CUTTING" challenge.  What exactly is fussy cutting you ask?  Well, it's simply cutting things out of paper with a pair of scissors.  Like when you were a little kid and cut things out of magazines.  Remember doing that?  I'm sure we all did!  Grown up fussy cutting can add beautiful design elements to your page and can be so much fun!  You can cut whatever you want - flowers, leaves, vines, animals, objects, shapes, swirls....whatever your imagination can come up with.  You can cut these designs out of patterned paper, or make up your own designs from solid color card stock.  It's entirely up to you.

Here's my example.  I cut out the leaves and some of the flowers you see on the left and underneath the pictures. I layered them and popped some elements with dimensional adhesive.  There is so much you can do with fussy cutting to add your own look to your pages.  And a lot of people find it to be very relaxing to sit and cut things out.

I can't wait to see what everyone does with this challenge!
