Fussy Cutting Tips with Graphic 45

Happy weekend, 
Memory Bound friends!
I've been teaching a monthly card class using Graphic 45 papers for awhile now, and one thing we often do with this beautifully detailed paper is FUSSY CUT. Fussy cutting (a term borrowed from the quilting world) is simply cutting elements from the paper to use as embellishments or features on a project. In the card below, the sunflowers are fussy cut from an 8x8 sheet.
 The many colors and coordinating patterns of Graphic 45 paper make it perfect for layering and fussy cutting.  Fussy cutting gives you many design options and allows you to look at paper in new and fun ways!

Fussy cutting is relaxing to many crafters, but to others it can seem stressful and tedious. If you'd like to learn some tips for fussy cutting with ease, watch this video with Graphic 45 design team member Denise Hahn. She'll show you how the right tools and techniques can make fussy cutting stress-free and lots of fun. Enjoy!
