Fussy Cutting Fun With Mother Goose


Hello G45ers,

Are you having a good week so far? Well it's about to get even better because today's Graphic 45 blog is filled with bright colors and enchanting inspiration! Our new Mother Goose collection is in stores now. There are so many joyful designs in this darling new collection that are just perfect for fussy cutting. It is such a joy to sit down with your favorite Graphic 45 papers and spend some time delicately cutting out flowers, animals, cute characters and more! Fussy cutting also adds incredible detail and dimension to any craft project. Today we're highlighting how much fun it is to fussy cut with Mother Goose! You'll see a wonderful tag by Susan Lui. Then Maria Cole will share her fantastic Mother Goose Easel Album! Get ready for a world of wonder as we explore these incredible crafts!

Lets begin with Susan's fabulous upside-down tag! You can see how she fussy cut the fun-loving characters and pretty floral designs from Mother Goose. Doesn't it add so much charm to this sweet tag? We also love how Susan layered the Mother Goose papers and added pretty ribbons and embellishments to give this tag even more allure. It just goes to show you what you can do with a little fussy cutting and some magnificent papers from Graphic 45!

Next up is another enchanting creation featuring Mother Goose! Behold, Maria's incredible Mother Goose 12x12 Easel Album! This exquisitely layered album features so many marvelous fussy cut elements that combine to tell a wonderful story! You can also see how perfectly all the Mother Goose papers blend together to create a heartwarming scene. This is the perfect project for a rainy afternoon with a cup of tea. You can let your imagination take flight while you enjoy layering and fussy cutting to your heart's content! Here is what Maria had to say about this breathtaking creation!




"I can’t tell you how excited I was, when I found out that one of my CHA projects would be a Mother Goose mini album! Not only are mini albums my favorite craft, but G45’s Mother Goose designs captured my heart! This new paper line from Graphic 45 is truly the most heartwarming and nostalgic children’s line I’ve ever seen, so of course, a mini album project is a must. I used G45’s 12” x 12” easel album as the base, as it’s perfect for this theme. I wanted my mini album to look and act much like a real children’s book – so I cut out frames in each page, and decorated both sides with a unique story. When you’re done flipping through one side of the easel album, simply turn around and start flipping the pages to see new stories! If you have an easel album just waiting to be decorated, I highly recommend picking up some Mother Goose papers—and making your own whimsical bedside “storybook”!" -Maria

That Mother Goose project must have taken a great deal of time to complete...time well spent...very nicely done. Fussy cutting really can create some interesting focal statements. Love the flowers cut with dies...beautiful display! Love today's artists!

Fun album. Love this paper. What a gorgeous album and wonderful fussy cutting. Great job.

Great projects. Mother Goose is such a cute collection!

I love fussy cuts. At first it seems scary to cut in to papers that are so lovely just the way they are, but so much fun to re-create them in to amazing pieces like today's projects. Great stuff!!

Beautiful cutting!

Gorgeous projects.

Such a fun collection!

Very pretty creations. I was wondering, how did Maria get the papers all over each easel page? It looks like she took the wire out put the paper on, then punched holes for the wire. Just curious how she did that. Thanks.

How wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

Mother Goose is adorable, and the projects are awesome. Thanks!

Beautiful tag. The easel mini Maria made is fantastic! Such a gorgeous creation.

These are gorgeous!! WOW!! I loveeeeee them!
