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.

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.
