I’ve used one of my favorite G45 collections:

Once Upon a Springtime

I have to admit that I’m more and more fond of fussy cutting.

How about you?

Do you fussy cut a lot while creating?


Thank you for visiting us today and have a crafty day!

Xoxo”  ~Aneta

I just got word that my Paper Doll collection is ready for shipping. I can't wait. All G45 lines are wonderful, but the paper dolls is going to be very special. The first thing I'm going to scrap is my Rosemary Clooney paper doll from the 1950's. She's pretty much solid scotch tape. I still have some of the clothes I made for her, along with the clothes she came with. The only toy left from my childhood.

Very pretty cards, thanks for sharing your talents.

I do I fussy cut a great deal as a way of relaxing! I love Once Upon A Time! But I can't help breaking out my dimensional glaze and iridescent glitter to add more detail and sparkle. I'm all in!
