Teapot Box

I've made a lot of box patterns during my time at Pazzles, and I mean a LOT. I am, if I may so say without sounding too conceited, pretty good at it. Other people are gifted at making scrapbook pages, cards, altered arts etc. but as for me, boxes are where it is at. While I am proud of every box I make, some just have a little something extra that makes me ever so proud. This is one of those boxes. I love all the curves of this box and I love how well it emulates a real tea pot!


Image Center Retirement

Whoa don't panic! We are NOT shutting down the image library with downloadable images at the Pazzles Craft Room. So what is the Image Center? The Image Center is a feature of our original version of Pazzles.com where members could purchase credits and buy images individually. However this image center has slowly become more and more obsolete with the introduction of our new library here at the Craft Room. So we have decided it is time to retire the Image Center. The Image Center will be shut down on May 31st, 2012.


Crafty Shopper Special: Sakura Stardust ...

Sakura gel pens have always been one of our favorite pens to use in the pen tool. Why? First of all they are great pens with a wonderfully even flow - which means no unexpected splotches or skipping while you are drawing or journaling using the pen tool. Second of all the come in so many beautiful colors and types. One of our all time favorite Sakura pens are the Stardust pens. So of course we had to offer these great pens as a Crafty Shopper special! We have a limited quantity of these pens and our last Craft Shopper special sold out in 24 hours so don't wait or it might be too late!



Magic Slider Card

About two weeks ago someone in the forums asked about a cutting file for how to make a "magic slider" card. I had no idea what they meant so I went to my good ol' standby, Google, and started looking. Wow! How cool are these cards? As you pull on the slider your stamped design magically fills with color! Of course there is a trick to it is quite clever! This idea works with any stamp design so you can adapt this idea for a card for just about any occasion. Both the quote and the flower stamp are stamps from Verve©. Aren't they lovely? I thought this card would be perfect for Mother's day or as a "just because" card.

An adorable Eiffel tower box that you can fill with Parisian treats (or Hershey's kisses).

Lollipop Covers with Verve™ Stamps

I have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that Easter is almost here! Over here in the west side of the country we've been having chillier weather than normal . In fact we had a heavy snow fall just a few days ago! You can imagine that the weather is making it even harder to put my mind in spring mode! I think however, that this project did the trick for me. This project is so simple and I just love how it turned out.

Making Shaped Cards

Often when I am talking to people on our designer chat or through email they are wanting to make a shaped card but don't know how. So I've had in mind for a while now to make a video on creating shaped cards. They are just so easy and so fun that I think even beginners will be able to master the few simple steps.

Party Crackers

New year's eve comes so closely on the tails of Christmas that in the aftermath of Dec. 25th I have a hard time preparing anything much for it. This year however I (and now you too) am prepared! I know you are probably still doing last minute Christmas shopping, baking, wrapping, cleaning, traveling, planning.....So your mind is probably not looking towards 2012, but it is just around the corner! Don't fret though, this whole spread is amazingly simple to make and looks so cute! In fact I only used 4 sheets of black paper and 4 sheets of double sided patterned paper to do EVERYTHING!
