Fear of Cutting

Post by tammyfolk » Fri Oct 11, 2019 9:14 pm

I'm a member of the ScrapRoom Group on Facebook, and saw this question, and thought I'd ask my fellow scrappers here. . .

Do you have a fear of cutting when working with a new or favorite line of paper?
Tammy Folk

Scrapbooking....is there really anything else?

I rescue paper trapped in the craft store... I’m not a hoarder I’m a hero.

No! If you mess up you can always alter the size, add an extra embellishment or make it work or just buy another piece of paper. :roll: I think as scrappers that is the rule of thumb, just work with what you have and you'd be surprised at how much you will love the result.

no...in fact the last Los I did for the challenges I messed up the cutting and just taped the paper back together.

I just go for it, no matter how pretty the paper is. If I cut into it and decide not to use it, I save it for another project.

I do have that fear at times. Mostly when I have to cut the paper so that the design is going the way I need it.

I used to have a fear of cutting into the paper but over the years I've gotten over it. I have so much paper now that if I can't salvage it or use it in a different way then there's always another piece I can use!

I do still have papers that I couldn't bear to cut into - way back when - for fear of messing them and they are still sitting in my stash unused and some out of date. Seeing all of those pretty papers unused has helped me to cut into the pretty ones now. And I'm sure I'll eventually use the old ones - even if they look outdated.

I don't really have a fear of cutting, but I definitely plan to make sure that I have the perfect photos for my perfect paper collections!
