Sun And Cloud Gift Box

It’s Sunshine Week at Pazzles! All this week we are sharing sunshine inspired projects to warm your hearts and inspire some bright, cheerful crafting! Goodbye winter! Hello Sunshine! I am a sunshine kinda girl and I am glad winter is behind us in the US. I decided to celebrate the warmer weather with a sunny project. I made this sunshine box using the Sunshine Title, the Scallop Sunshine file, and the St. Patrick’s Day Pot of Gold Treat Box. I used vinyl for the lettering because I love the fact that you transfer all the letters at once and they are already lined up. No glue, no fuss. I followed the directions that are provided with the St. Patrick’s Day Pot of Gold Treat Box to assemble the box, but I moved the cloud to the left side and instead of using the pot of gold, I substituted the Scallop Sunshine file.


Sun and Clouds Shaped Card

It’s Sunshine Week at Pazzles! All this week we are sharing sunshine inspired projects to warm your hearts and inspire some bright, cheerful crafting! I really enjoy making shaped cards. It just adds so much more to a card. With sunshine in mind, I decided to create a sunshine shaped card. For this card I used the Cloud and Sunshine Border file. I simply sized the sun to 6", mirrored and duplicated the sun, and then joined and welded the two sides together. I then went ahead and cut a circle to fit on the inside as well as on the outside. For the outer circle I used dimensional squares to add dimension. I created a sentiment with the Ribbon Banners cutting file and used my printer to print. I also embossed the circle and added some clouds along with some stickles highlights. I finished off my card by adding some rhinestone accents. 


Filled With Sunshine Sunburst Card

It’s Sunshine Week at Pazzles! All this week we are sharing sunshine inspired projects to warm your hearts and inspire some bright, cheerful crafting! Everyone’s birthday should be filled with sunshine! I made this birthday card with the Sun Ray Card 2 file from the Craft Room Library. First of all I used a premade card base that measures 5.5" x 4". Then I used two different shades of yellow for the rays to make it bright and cheerful.



Sunshine Shaped Card

It's Sunshine Week at Pazzles! All this week we are sharing sunshine inspired projects to warm your hearts and inspire some bright, cheerful crafting! Hello Pazzles friends, Melin here today, sharing a super easy and fun card with you. I used the new Spellbinders Digital Die Small Octagon Collection to create this card. I used some pretty paper from the DCWV Baby Girl Stack. It was so bright and cheery and was just the right color palette for a cheerful and “sunshiny” card. I started by welding the two bases together to create the card base. I cut that layer in plain white cardstock. I then cut the next layer in the patterned paper and then the next layer in some tangerine Bazzill cardstock.


Bee Happy Print & Cut ...

It is that time of the year when the birds are singing, the sun is shining and the flowers are blooming……..so we should all try and “Bee Happy”. I made my shaped card using one of the elements from the Banner Box cutting file in the Pazzles Library. As you know I love making shaped cards and if you follow the Video Tutorial called Making Shaped Cards, you also will find them easy and fun to make.


Butterflies

Stained Glass Butterflies Cutting Collection

I had a lot of fun creating this Stained Glass Butterflies Cutting Collection. What started out as just one little Monarch, quickly grew to an entire collection. I guess my mind was fluttering with ideas. The best part about these butterflies is how easy they are to make, but they look extremely detailed and intricate. That’s the benefit of an overlay; you can have only two layers of paper, but done right can create a big impact. This is a great project to use your ink pads, markers, colored pencils—anything you want to create the background of your butterflies. I used ink pads in an assortment of colors to create mine. I started out using lighter colored ink on the center of the wings. Then, I inked more heavily on the outside edges using a darker color to create some drama. It added the perfect variance to make the wings look as realistic as possible. I was happy with the results, and hope you’re happy with the collection.

Design Team member Heidi Edwards is joining me today as we build our bouquet. She created this beautiful Lily of the Valley, which is perfect for Easter too, by the way! I'm excited to create this bouquet for my mom for Mother's Day. I think sometimes as paper crafters we take for granted how cool it is to make a dimensional object out of paper. People not involved in this paper world are absolutely blown away when they see what we can make out of a flat piece of paper. Give a bouquet away to someone and let them think you are a paper magician!

Clothespin Puppets

I was sitting in church a few weeks ago and giggling about how hard it was for the little kids to sit quietly. It’s hard to be a little person in a big kid world. I remember packing snack bags of cheerios and goldfish to keep my daughter entertained through Sunday service. I would take a much different approach with little ones now that I have a Pazzles Inspiration. I came up with these little clothespin character puppets to help keep little hands busy. This is a great way to take existing cutting files in the Craft Room and turn them into puppets too. Have fun!

Hot Tamale Treat Topper

I was so inspired by Amanda’s So Lucky To Have You Treat Topper that I turned it into a treat for my hubby. With just a few changes and his favorite candy it came out so cute. First, I changed the Lucky wording to Hot Tamale and then changed the Pen Tool writing to read "You are one". I added a couple of hearts and hot tamale candies, then some stickles to fancy it up a bit. He’s going to love it!


Wedding Anniversary Gate Card

Yesterday was my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary. Being married for 50 years is quite an accomplishment and I wanted to make them a special card to go with our gift. Our Fun Folds Cutting Collection has been very popular and I love to use the card bases when an extra special card is called for. In this case I used the Panel Gate Fun Fold file and welded the 50 to the top of the inside flap. I added some roses made with the Twirled Flowers files to the front and a monogram made from gold glitter cardstock, since the 50th anniversary is the golden anniversary.


Spring Party Banner

I love this cute spring banner that can easily be adapted for any event! Made with files from the Craft Room Library!



Strawberry Jam Jar Gift Tags

I remember when I was about 10, being in the kitchen with my great grandmother. We called her "Granna". I remember the smell of fresh strawberry jam and helping her to mash the berries. It’s a memory that has stayed with me forever, and so every year I make my house smell just like hers. Fresh strawberry jam is something my family has always loved, and for a few lucky people they get to live that memory with me as I give out the jam. This year I used my Inspiration to make my labels. I first cut three 3" circles for the tops out of a plaid pattern paper. Then I used the Deckled Edge Classic Ovals from the Spellbinders Cutting Collections.

Butterfly Pops Party Favor

Today I have made a quick 15 minute project, a Butterfly Lollipop Holder using my Pazzles Inspiration. I love butterflies and when I saw this 3-D Butterfly in the Craft Room Library, I just knew I would be using it for one of my projects. I imported the file into my Pazzles software and deselected some of the layers, as I wanted to use a combination of different patterned papers. I duplicated the butterfly and set it to one side. Taking the first imported butterfly I deleted all the layers except the largest base layer.


Front Door Vinyl Signs

Driving through my neighborhood the other day I saw that my neighbor had added her last name to her front door with vinyl. I instantly wanted to be a copycat. What a cute idea! Sometimes it's the simple things we can do with our Inspiration that we overlook. Since I can't create all of your last names for you in fun fonts, I did the next best thing and made several generic front door signs ready to cut out in your color choice of vinyl. I don't know why I never thought of this before, but I think this might be my part of every gift I give this year. What a cute idea for newlyweds or a small gift for a teacher, or neighbor.


Make A Wish Birthday Card

Winter reminds me of snowflakes and mittens. With this in mind I got an idea to create a winter birthday card. I started with a 5" x 7" base card,  and then went ahead and created a scalloped border using the making scallops video. The video makes it so easy to create any size scalloped borders. I used the Mittens cutting file found in the Craft Room Library and created an outline for the mittens. I also created two basic circles and printed the Make A Wish sentiment.
