Clearly Besotted May Teasers Day 2

Hey. How are you today? I’m glad you loved yesterday’s new set. I’m actually using it again because I love it quirkiness so much. If you know much about what I do, I also sometimes work for a large company called Fiskars who manufacture (amongst other things) scissors. They have bright orange handles on thier classic range and so I thought I’d have a pair of orange handled scissors.

I thought it might be fun to have them cutting through some paper- like a piece of paper from a notebook so that was where my idea developed from.

Cutting a slit in a piece of patterned paper (that I’d already punched a notebook top into) was the first step and then I had to carefully roll it without crushing it and then glue the rolled bit to itself so it didn’t come undone. Having double sided patterned paper was really handy as it gives a little colour to the card.

Shame about the scissor’s handles… they are rather too tiny to be fussy cutting and my papercrafting scissors need sharpening.. they’ve fussy cut a LOT over the years. I tried to disguise the jaggedy edges and you can see here how unsuccessful I was- but from a distance….noone will notice (haha!).

Isn’t the sentiment just perfect! I just lined it up and stamped on the card base before adding the patterned paper and then added the little fun pen and some scattered hearts which are all in the set.

I’d love you to go and visit the Clearly Besotted blog (plus they’re on Instagram too) and then hop over to my favourite teamie Michelle Short. We have Kitty Day, Francine Vuilleme and Alberto Gava as our fabulously inspiring guests so please visit them too x

See you tomorrow, to explore another new set.

    Oh my goodness, Keren! That’s amazing! What a fantastic idea. Love that paper and the sentiment not only is perfect in what it says but it fits in that gap perfectly too! Love the added pen and hearts and your fussy cutting skills always amaze me. You are the queen of fussy cutting! xx
