Color Palette (March 18 & ...

We are going to revisit the very important Color Palette this week. We are going to start with the basics and take you through creating your own color palette. We will be working in both the original software that came with your Pazzles and also with the Pro 2010 software. Knowing the color palette will help you with designing, outlining and cutting, so don't miss this. This class is going to be perfect for beginners and advanced alike, so be sure and join us. We had daylight savings time last weekend in the US, so if you live where they haven't done daylight savings yet (or you don't do daylight savings), please be sure to make adjustments to your time. This is the Time Conversion chart, but it does not account for the daylight savings. Classes are Sunday evening 7pm CST, Monday morning 5am CST and Monday afternoon 1pm CST. To join us, simply go to Klo's Classroom, click on Enter Classroom and sign in as a Guest.

March Challenge

The challenge is GREEN this month. You can interpret that anyway you choose. After you are finished, just post your challenge into the March Challenge Folder. Remember, the challenge is not a contest, it is an opportunity for you to push yourself to use your Pazzles and learn more about it. If you are a beginner, use a shape or do a project to help you feel more comfortable cutting. If you are advanced, I'd love to see you stretch yourself, but of course you are free to do anything you want as long as it is GREEN or has GREEN in it somewhere.

Classes-March 4 & 5

This week we are going to get Back to the Basics with Fonts and creating titles. We will start with the basics and then move on to really showing how to manipulate the letters and get the look you want. This is a great class for beginners and advanced alike. If you haven't joined us for a class yet, just go to Klo's Classroom and click on Enter Classroom. You will then join as a guest. If you want to see past classes, be sure and go check out the past classes in the Archives. Classes are on Sunday at 7pm CST, Monday at 5am CST and 1pm CST. If you aren't sure what time that is where you live, be sure and check out the Time Conversion Chart.

Exploding Card

Many of you have seen this card (okay, not this exact card, but one like it) in the booth during the 2011 conventions. I had told you that I would put it up as a project sometime and guess what? It's sometime. *smile*

January Challenge Winner

This was another FABULOUS CHALLENGE. It was so wonderful to see people stretching outside of their comfort zone to try something they hadn't done before. If you haven't seen the different projects that were put up, be sure and jump on over to check it out in the January Challenge folder. Congratulations to our winner, wranglersport. She stepped out of the box and tried the Photo Cut Tool for the first time. Then she put it on a layout to make it even more fabulous. If you want to try the Photo Cut tool, you can learn about it here, with a video from Christine, or go to Klo's Classroom and watch Class #10 from the January 6-9, 2012 Marathon of Classes. So what are you waiting for? Even if you didn't submit an entry to the challenge, you can still take the challenge and try something new to you today. We'd still love to see it.

Classes-PLEASE READ-changes

For those that were unable to attend the marathon of classes last weekend, you may not have heard of the day and time changes. So here is the Official Announcement. There are now going to be THREE classes each week. Sunday class will now start at 7pm CST, we have added a Monday morning class that starts at 5am CST and the Tuesday class has been moved to Monday at 1pm CST. We hope with these changes, that we will get into your time zone during normal waking hours and hopefully at least one evening hour, this is WORLD WIDE, but be sure and check out the TIME TABLE for corresponding time.

Marathon of Classes January 6-9

The marathon of classes will begin at 1:00pm CST on Friday, January 6, 2012. We will start the first class with the very basics and a little bit of an overview of some of the things that we will be doing throughout the weekend. Each class will last about an hour.  Then we will take a break.  At the end of each class, I will tell you what time the next class starts, plus it will be posted on the classroom wall. (Generally between 1 and 3 hour break)  I will also post each recorded class at the end of each class, so if you miss one, you can watch it right a way.

January Challenge

Happy New Year! In the spirit of New Year's Resolutions this month's challenge is to try something new with your Pazzle's machine. It doesn't matter what you do as long as it's something you've never tried before. If you need help with the how to's of your project, make sure to check out the awesome Craft Room video tutorials or the archives in Klo's Classroom. This is the perfect challenge for a beginner who has never cut their first project or the master who needs to step out of their own comfort zone. If you are new to Pazzles and don't know about our challenges, go to the Challenge page and read all about it. When you get your project done, be sure and put it in the January Challenge Folder.

Classes-January 1 and 3

Just a reminder, No classes this week...but get ready for the MARATHON OF CLASSES starting next Friday, January 6, 2012. We will be starting a 1pm CST. Happy New Year to everyone.

Classes-December 25 and 27

Just a reminder, there will be no classes this week or next week. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season and I will see you in the New Year. PLEASE NOTE: The Marathon of Classes will be January 6,7 & 8, 2012. (the original date was going to be January 13-15, but they will be running an update on the class site during that time). During the Marathon of Classes, we will have classes going on 24 hours, with 2-3 hour breaks between each class to either sleep or get the project from the previous session done. Some of the things that you will want to have on hand if you plan to work a long with us is the rubber that is used with the rubber stamps and rhinestones, (if you don't have the rubber stamp kit, I'd recommend it, but it is not required) the foam cling for rubber stamps (this comes in the rubber stamp kit), vinyl, stencil material, cardstock, pattern paper and basic crafting supplies. I am planning on doing some different things with the accessory tools as well (pen, piercing, embossing, engraving, distressing and pastry), but have not figured out the details on those yet, so may only get to part of the tools during the actual marathon.

December Challenge WINNERS

WOW...WOW...WOW! That is what I consistently said for the December Challenge as I watched each entry posted. It has been so amazing to see all the wonderful things that people have been doing with the 12 Boxes of Christmas. I cannot explain to you how amazing it has been to see so many people participate. There were a few people that did every single box and there were some that did just one, regardless the response has been fabulous. It has been fun to see those from our Pazzle veterans to Pazzle beginners actually making their very first projects from the boxes. The amazing part is that every single box is absolutely terrific.

Classes-December 18 and 20

My apologies first for not having this post yesterday, I'm still fighting this silly sickness and my days have been a bit mixed up. Sunday Class-We will be sharing some ideas for things to do throughout the holidays using your Pazzles. Tuesday Class-This is the last class before Christmas and the day before Chanukah/Hannukah starts, so we will be answering any last minute questions that you may be trying to have prepared for your special holiday.

Sleigh Box

This cute Sleigh Box was inspired by the Christmas Villages that I see in many different stores. I have always loved the scenes in the winter movies of the sleighs dashing through the snow. The shape of the sleigh is especially appealing to me
