Technique: Fussy Cutting

Ever heard the term Fussy Cutting and wondered what it meant? Fussy Cutting refers to cutting out a specific image from patterned paper and using it as a seperate focus. Ready to see Fussy Cutting in action? The November Petite Kit has a gorgeous leaf paper you can see ont he bottom of this layout:

After I cut the paper in half to use on this layout, I still had a half sheet left which I fussy cut several different leaves from for this card:
Fussy Cutting is a great technique to use when you've purchased paper you love but don't have any coordinating embelishments. By cutting out specific images you create your own accents.
