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!

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

WOW! I love these projects, the collection and all of that fussy cutting. G45 is awesome. Thanks for sharing.

I am so excited. We made our 3 hr. road trip today to pick up my order of all 3 new paper lines from Graphic45 and all the stamps, the whole line! After another 3 hours to get home and now I'm to tired to make anything tonight. Boy am I going to have fur tomorrow.

Lovely projects! Mother Goose is one of the many gorgeous themes I want to add to my collection of G45 papers.

Beautiful projects!

Mother Goose is timeless and this wonderful paper collection lets us relive some of our favorite memories as a child. How fun it is to work with something that brings back a joyful time. Great projects!

A perfect trip back to your childhood. Thank you Maria and G45. Lanna
