Quick Quotes Blog Hop

**The hop begins at midnight on May 4th, but I don't trust blogger with scheduling right now, so this might be up early for you!**

I am so excited to celebrate National Scrapbook Day with our Quick Quotes fans! What better way than to celebrate than a fun blog hop that also shares our challenge for this month!?!   During the hop you will see inspiration from our design team showcasing fussy cutting (our current challenge).  Please visit the Quick Quotes blog to gather more details on the challenge.

I love to fussy cut my patterned paper. I think it is a great way to take the same paper that others are using and make it your own unique creation. In fact I regularly buy paper just so I can fussy cut it up. Fussy cutting can be done simply by cutting a shape out of the patterned paper directly.
This paper has a lots of beautiful flowers that you can leave be or do as I did, cut them out and make a whole new design with them.  The possibilities are limitless...and don't even get me started on curling, folding, or using foam adhesives.  It's a very fun technique to try that doesn't require any special tools.  Now that I've wet your appetite, here's the challenge details!


I used One Fine Day to create my layout:
Now that I've wet your appetite, here's the line-up for the rest of the hop!
