JAI 69 Just Add Fussy Cutting

I love fussy cutting! Fussy cutting is grabbing your pair of snips or even your manicure scissors and letting loose on some paper (preferably around an image lol). Thanks to Paula who gave us this challenge this week..I certainly had fun with this LO.

This paper is a specialty paper called Nursery Suite (pg 124). Ive stamped and cut out lots of flowers from ‘Greenhouse Garden’  (pg 81) and leaves from ‘Happiness Shared’ (pg 80). (fussy cutting) and Ive used Clearly for you (Autumn/winter mini) for around the circle, on the title and here and there with the ladybug and little flower just to fill in any gaps.

Ive also used ‘Notably Ornate’ (pg 95) for the bird and journalling spot and the title is from ‘Word Play’ (pg 103)

There are two roses (one you cant see as its just a bud underneath the large rose) and Ive cut out two little leaves sizzlets. Punches Ive used are the owl punch (rose), scallop oval (rose bud and centre) Five petal flower for some leaves under the rose and the decorative label punch for the title.

The use of the white gel pen and a bit of bling were little touches to finish it off . I know Ive shown this photo of my daughter but I just had to document how much she is growing at the moment…she is growing up too fast! Its so not fair that she is now taller than me!

So I hope you play along with us this week. Do go and have a look and what the other girls on the Just Add Ink DT have done here.

Arent they awesome!!

    what a gorgeous layout Delys. I love it. Funny that you are looking up to your little girl. My boys are still shorter than me, but by the looks of their horrifyingly huge feet, those days are numbered. And I should invest in a shoe company!

    Absolutely beautiful, Delys!! I love the flowers you’ve stamped around the inner edge of the paper, love all the sponging … and boy, you do like fussy cutting, don’t you? Fantastic job; this is a gorgeous layout.

    Mum says this is “quite outstanding” .. she doesnt usually use big words so I guess its got to be quite good. Mum says you took her to Melbourne so thats why we stayed in holiday camp – in future we all would appreciate it if you just dont put holiday ideas like that in Mums head thank you very much! tat taaaaa

    A gorgeous, feminine and very pink page, to showcase the gorgeoud woman your daughter is turning into. You certainly know how to scrapbook a subject Delys. Your fussy cutting is fab and I am thrilled you listed the punches you used to make your gorgeous flowers. A real piece of artwork!

    It was good to read about all the details because there’s so much on this page that I have only noticed for the first time. This is an amazing layout, Delys. So beautiful. Can you come and take my next work shop as they’ll be mostly scrapbookers?? Aaaaagh.
