However, sometimes a paper design can win the ‘to fussy cut or not to fussy cut’ debate in my head and I give it a go. It is funny as more times than not when I fussy cut I love the result which then make me question why I don’t do it more often!?!
Here is the layout that I created: I really wanted to document this big moment in my little girls’ life so I chose one of the journal cards from the ephemera pack to add the story to. I did this using my typewriter directly onto the card. I then created a pocket to slip it into, so the journaling could be hidden.
The title was added to the top right area within the butterflies. It is made up of the Moonstruck Thickers and the gold foiled ‘beautiful’ word from the ephemera pack. It nestled nicely within the fluttering butterflies.
To balance out the title on the top right corner I added a small heart and sentiment label to the bottom left of the page on top of the floral cluster. To help ground the whole page and add a pop of colour I matted the layout on the Paper 12 from the collection.
I hope this page has inspired you to give fussy cutting a go. Stop by the blog tomorrow for a fussy cutting tutorial!
