ALL ABOUT FUSSY CUTTING
Fussy cutting… you either love it or you’re not a fan. Today we’re talking all about what Fussy Cutting is, why you Fussy Cut, and when to Fussy Cut. Let’s jump in!
Today, I’m going to share all about Fussy Cutting. Why, when, and how you would Fussy Cut! I’ve linked a YouTube video a little further down on this post where I share lots of tips & tricks. Make sure to check it out!

WHEN, WHY, & HOW TO FUSSY CUT:
WHEN DO YOU FUSSY CUT? Any time you stamp an image and want to cut it out, you can fussy cut it! You can also fussy cut to add more interest to your card – including making bubble letters.
WHY WOULD YOU FUSSY CUT? Not all stamp sets come with dies or punches to cut out the stamped images. If you are working with a stamp set that does not have these coordinating dies/punches, you might want to fussy cut in order to cut your image out to use on your project.
HOW TO FUSSY CUT & WHAT TOOLS ARE NEEDED? Fussy Cutting is a pretty simple process, and you don’t need very many tools! You’ll need a stamped image(s), and a good pair of scissors to cut out your image. I recommend Paper Snips as they are sharp, have never made my hand cramp, are easy to use and do a great job!
