Hello everyone, it's Giorgia here today.
Today I would love to show you a layout with a DIY background made with fussy cutting technique.
I hand cutted all these amazing Altair Art butterflies to create an eye catching layout.
Fussy cutting is becoming one of my favorite techinques, it relaxes me a lot.
As background paper I chose the pink Ever and Always paper and I "framed"it with a lot of fussy cutted, colorful butterflies.
Altair Art has a huge assortment of butterflies that you can fussy cut to use as embellishments: I chose many colors because I wanted to create a funny layout - the picture is a silly one me and hubby took at our niece first birthday, in the photo boot (I love photo boots, and you?!)
When you fussy cut the butterflies you can choose to leave a tiny border all around or not: in this case I prefer not to. To cut all the butterflies you will need about 2 hours... it is a long work but it worth it!
I also used another butterfly as embellishment: I stapled it onto a diy watercoloredcardstock and a piece of embossed vellum, both cutted in butterfly shape.
In the past I shared another layout full of fussy cutting butterflies, if you missed it you can findd it here.
These are the paper I used, you can find them here.

I hope you like my layout and give it a try on this kind of background technique!
A presto, ciao
