Crate Paper – Fussy Cutting: A Tag Mini Album

Hello CP fans! Enza here, and today I am sharing a tag mini album that is bursting with fussy-cut elements. Fussy-cutting to me is relaxing and fun, especially when I get to work with gorgeous florals and patterns like the ones in the Flourish collection. I like to have the ability to change a design and make it my own by combining different patterns and colors, and that is definitely the magic of fussy-cutting.

My mini today is all about capturing everyday moments: a smile, a pensive face, a sweet expression. This type of pictures are the ones I enjoy the most, especially when it comes to my kids, as they truly represent their personalities.

I started by choosing some of the tags that come in the Flourish Ephemera Pack, and used them as a template to cut more of the same shapes in different sizes. Next, I fussy-cut all the elements I wanted to use: flowers, tickets, most of the cut-apart sheet, butterflies and more. Each tag has layers and layers of goodness on it 😉

I tried to personalize each tag as much as possible. You will see some hand-stitching, used to make a sentiment stand out more or just as a decorative element.

I also love wrapping twine around my photos, or use cut files that coordinate with the main patterns to add that little extra “something” throughout the album. Most of the times, I tend to back cut files with patterned paper, but I decided to keep them simple here to balance off the colorful tags.

The rest is just a mixture of stickers, chipboard, ephemera, all layered to achieve dimension and texture.

I had a lot of fun putting this tag album together. Fussy-cutting is the perfect technique if you are looking to use patterns and colors in a unique way.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely day!
