12 Memories of Christmas: November made with the Pazzles Inspiration Vue

12 Days of Memories: November

I wanted to incorporate the textures and colors of November on this calendar page. I used real burlap and twine along with traditional fall papers in small prints. The subtle pop of light teal blue is a fun surprise but works well with the oranges, browns and green. It also brings in a touch of winter to the page.


Custom Personal Pies made with the Pazzles Inspiration

Custom Personal Pies

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Pazzles! We are so grateful for you, our customers and friends, who have supported and shared with us year after year. As a way to say thank you and show our gratitude, we have three custom pie designs just for you! I have been having so much fun using my Pastry Tool to make pies. They are so easy and every single one has been so pretty.

This is one of those special kind of projects that takes very minimal effort for really big results. I do not have the words for how excited I am to share this with you! Cutting pie crust is one of the EASIEST things I have ever cut on the Pazzles Inspiration and there are so many fun things you can do. I feel like I have only begun to scratch the surface.



Thanks Frame with Pen Detail by Pazzles

Pen Tool: Thanksgiving Home Decor/Decoración ...

This month there is a special celebration in the USA: Thanksgiving day. I love this holiday because it is the kind of celebration that would be celebrated around the world. It is time to give thanks for all we have: health, family, friends, work and all other things. So for this special month, using my Pazzles Pen Tool for the project of the month, I decide to create a home decor.


Thanksgiving Easel Card

Thanksgiving Rip Strip Easel Card

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  I love combining files from the Pazzles Craft Room to create new things, especially when the end result has not just one nifty feature, but two!  This one is so easy and is a greeting card with a built-in festive sign your recipient can display to add to the warm fuzzies encompassed in this blessed celebration of gratitude and cooperation. I used the Rip Strip: Full Card from the Pazzles Craft Room Library and some festive papers.  From the file I used the gray-outlined/medium-pink filled piece that folds in the portrait direction which contains the rip strip scallops (hereafter the “scallop piece”), the teal guide piece (hereafter the “teal piece”), the white flag piece (cut off at about an inch and ⅜ from the tips - hereafter the “flag piece”) and the “square pink piece”.


Fall Wreath Tutorial

The season of giving thanks is upon us! Now is the time to start decorating your home. A good way to do this is by decorating a wreath. Use your Pazzles to make designing and cutting easier.

Pastry Tool: Clay Cornucopia ...

This month I was privileged to be able to play with cutting clay using the Pazzles Pastry Kit on my Pazzles Vue! I had cut clay only once before when Klo taught a class on how to do this. Be sure to view the video for some helpful tips. I wanted to make a piece to decorate my home for Thanksgiving, and the idea for a clay cornucopia was born. I searched the Pazzles Craft Room Library for a suitable design, and found a very nice Horn of Plenty file to resize to about 4” wide,  and use for this purpose.


Turkey Box

Turkey and Scarecrow Fall Treat ...

Hey crafty friends, Melinda here with you today. I have some super cute and fun treat boxes to share with you. I created these adorable Turkey and Scarecrow Treat boxes just in time for your fall gift giving. Below you will find the link for the instruction sheet. For my sample boxes I used a variety of fun patterned papers from a variety of my DCWV Stacks. You can use a bunch of fun embellishments to finish them off.


Dimensional Paper Scarecrow

Happy Fall with a Scarecrow/Feliz ...

We are at the start of the final quarter of year and that means the Fall season is here. Leaves fall and night comes early. It is time  to change the decor at home to welcome this season. I have seen a lot of beautiful decor and I always like the scarecrow that is used in the farms to protect the crops and for decor too.  I decided to make one for my home and I want it to be dimensional. For the Scarecrow I have used the following files: Pumpkin file from the Thanksgiving Cornucopia Centerpiece for the head.



Pumpkin Treat Cups

Pumpkin or Apple Paper Treat ...

Fall offers so many opportunities for creativity. I am especially drawn to pumpkins and apples. It makes me think of crisp, fall days and all of the delicious tastes and smells. These treat cups are double the fun! They make beautiful decorations and hold sweet treats in the secret compartment.

These little acorn shaped boxes are the perfect way to welcome your guests to your Thanksgiving feat. The tops lift off and you can place after dinner mints, chocolate, or a sweet note of gratitude inside.

Fall Baking Inspired Paper Projects

Fall Baking Inspired Paper Gift ...

Happy fall and happy fall baking! It's really the best part of fall, isn't it? I've created a fun little baking inspired set for you this week. The oven card opens downward, just like a real oven and the apron card has ribbon ties. The third piece of the set is a little recipe holder that you can slip your favorite recipes inside and give as a gift. It would be fun to have everyone bring a recipe to Thanksgiving and have a recipe exchange. You can create a recipe holder for each guest to take their recipes home in.

Stand Up Pumpkin Box

Fall is officially here! It is one of my favorite seasons, and a trip to the pumpkin patch is only secondary to decorating the house. I always wrap a leaf swag around my banister, put a festive fall wreath on the door, and add fun, fall themed items to just about every flat surface!

Harvest Time Treats Cutting Collection

Harvest Time Treats Cutting Collection: ...

When the nights start to get cooler and the leaves start to change I start to think about pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie and pumpkin bars. I'm a big fan of fall baking! When the baking bug hits me I usually need to get some of the goodies out of my house before I eat too much. It's so much fun to give and receive home baked treats. Now you can deliver those treats in a cute package and double the wow factor. The Harvest Time Treat Cutting Collection features seven different treat boxes and bags, and three decorative embellishment files.


Thnaksgiving Kid's Table

Thanksgiving Kid’s Table Activity Mat

I love Thanksgiving, not just for all the delicious food, but for the feeling in the air too. As a kid I loved how the adults sat at one table and all of us cousins got to sit at another table decorated especially for us. To carry on my favorite childhood memory I decided to create a project designed with your own little turkeys in mind this Thanksgiving. Use this fun activity placemat, cup and napkin ring set to keep little hands busy while they wait for dinner to be served. Let them decorate their own cups and listen to them giggle as they “gobble” up cherished memories this Thanksgiving.


Thanksgiving Turkey Box

Turkey Box Remake

This fun turkey makes a great decoration for the mantel, or an end table, or use it as a Thanksgiving table decoration. If you want to use it for place cards, be sure and look to see what Design Team member, Melinda Beltran did with a few modifications. When I made the original turkey box a few years ago, I had no idea that it would remain one of my all time favorite projects that I had created. I have done a few modifications to the file to make it quicker and easier to assemble, without taking away from the fun personality of this character.



Thanksgiving Place Cards

Thanksgiving Place Cards

Busy, busy, busy. We are coming into the time of the year when we are so busy. We don’t have time to do elaborate projects, but still want the look of elaborate projects. Thanksgiving is one of those times. We want everything perfect on our dinner tables right down to the last detail including our place cards. Today I have a quick easy idea for place cards. I found these silver 3" x 2" frames at a yard sale for about buck but I have seen similar ones at the Dollar Tree and Michaels for next to nothing


Thanksgiving Table Decorations

Thanksgiving Table Decorations

I am decorating my Thanksgiving table with Pazzles vinyl. This was my very first attempt to cut vinyl. I do not know what I had been afraid of. It is so easy. I started with the Give Thanks phrase from the Craft Room Library to decorate a vase for a centerpiece. I was working with small pieces, so I did not use the transfer tape. I did however, print out the image, tape it to the inside of the glass vase and use that as a guide to lay down the layers of vinyl.


Printable Cherry Pie Slice

Printable Cherry Pie Slice

If only making pie were this easy in real life! Today I have the most delicious treat box to share with you and it's 'easy as pie' to make. The back of the box opens so you can tuck small treats or treasures inside. This is a printable project. The files were not created to have each individual little piece cut out and glued together. First, cut out and assemble your base box. Next print out your pie pieces on your home printer and then use the Print & Cut method to cut out those pieces. I've included the PVG file for use with the InVue Software.
