Fussy Cutting Cuties–January 2021

I haven’t shared any of my Fussy Cutting Cuties bits and pieces since September last year but since we are in a new year I thought I’d start a fresh and shown you what we’ve been doing at the end of the month.

So, 2021 saw a change to the Cutie Keeper, going from a monthly TN insert to a year long A5 project. Now I love me some A5 and have a bunch of empty A5 size binders so totally behind this one.

Each month we get a printable pack of pages – a calendar, our yearly Christmas project, and other little projects to complete through the month. Here is some of my pages.

My monthly divider for January from Simple Stories printables. Sticking a Currently list (also from Simple Stories) to the back of each month divider.

Each month we visit a different destination as part of Take Me Away Day. January was Sydney Australia. Loved that they started in my country. Mostly created using the printables provided to us, except for the page about the Botanical Gardens which features the Painted Protea kits from Luscious Labels

January’s Cutie takeover was with Michelle Durheim  and was about water colours and lettering. Haven’t finished mine yet so no photos to share.

The cutest little memory dex

I love a good printable, especially when the graphics are super cute. The amazing Kelly Bangs & Paula G joined forces to create a new group The Fussy Cutting Cuties.

$10US a month gets you access to a private Facebook group, 6+ live events a month, 5+ crafty printable sheets per month, Random Happy Mail and more……
anywho…… each month we are making a cutie file but that’s a post for another time plus another little project. Last month our project was a mini memorydex in a berry basket with Caroline Martinez– a fruity dex if you will. We got a template to make our own basket and mini memorydex cards.

So far I’ve made 10 cards but I’ve got some ideas for more.

How cute are they? Can’t wait to get some more made and in my fruitdex PLUS it’s given me some ideas to use in my full size memorydex.
