Running with Scissors

My favorite tool has to be my scissors!  I have the Tim Holtz ones with the cushy handles and sturdy that thing.  Every single one of my layouts or projects has hand cutting...I can't help myself!  You can make your own patterns, create your own borders and slice together some embellishments!

Case in point...some brand new Pink Paislee was used for this layout!  I love mixing Sweetness and Parisian is gorgeous together!

I handcut like crazy on this one!  It seems like it would take me a long time, but it really didn't.  I like to cut and listen to the TV at the same time.  It is soothing to me!  This was on the Pink Paislee Blog today so go check out my post! 

Here is one, using some lovely Fancy Pants from my stash!  Those flowers are totally hand cut along with the detailing on the edges of the lined paper!

If I were stranded on an island and could only bring a few things, scissors would make that list.  Of course, patterned paper and glue would have to be there too....


  1. Those are amazing!! Love the flowers on the first page!!

  2. Beautiful page - I'm with you on those scissors (shhhh - don't tell the fiskateers lol) they are so versatile cutting anything and staying sharp to get all the details.
