White Space Challenge and Trying Out a New Tool

I came across these scissors by complete accident. I was waiting in line to check out at my craft store when I spotted them randomly discarded on the shelf by a previous shopper. I picked them up, thought they were interesting and threw them in my basket to give them a try.

And I am soooo glad that I did! The Precision Snips by EK Success have become one of my latest favorite tools! They make fussy cutting a BREEZE! Before now I have relied solely on my Fiskars Micro-Tip scissors, which did a fantastic job . . . but the Precision Snips make getting into tight corners a lot easier. LOVE them!

You can see how I used them to cut out a few elements on this next page. I handcut the blue floral border from the Cosmo Cricket Strips sheet and the row of Japanese Lanterns from the Jillibean Soup paper.

Have a great week!

Lovely layout! I will have to try those scissors out. Right now I have been using the cutter bee scissors and really like them too, but the handle on these snips look so great. TFS
