October 2016 Challenge #1

Challenge #1 for October 2016 - Snip! Snip!


Source

Pumpkin carving is a popular activity at this time of the year, with patterns ranging from the traditional triangle-faced Jack O'lanterns to much more intricate designs. Our first challenge this month is the scrapbooking equivalent of pumpkin carving - fussy-cutting! Use your scissors to trim one or more designs or images from patterned paper and then use the cut image(s) on a project.

Our Guest Designer Kelly will get your mouth watering with her layout. She has a process video here on Youtube that you can watch to see how she made this page:

Leslie has been rumored to be the Queen of Fussycutting & her floral wreath proves it!

Susan took an almost-rejected patterned paper and used it to create an autumnal wreath:
