Monogram Mother’s Day Cards

Alright Mother's Day procrastinators, I've got you covered! Today I have the easiest Mother's Day card ever. This is even easier than driving to the store and buying one. Our Floral Monogram Cutting Collection has been well received, so today I've created a floral monogram mom card. The card itself is just three pieces. Just glue them together and embellish with flowers or gems. Your mom will be impressed with the beautiful card you put together ten minutes before the party.

Cleaning

Spring Cleaning Cutting Collection

This cute Spring Cleaning Cutting Collection might just convince you that cleaning looks fun. At least I'm hoping that it works on my children. I created this little chore chart for our refrigerator so I can assign chores. When they've completed their chore, they can move the chore off their name. I love these little miniature icons and I'll probably make a name tag for myself so I can move the little pieces around too. I'm always looking for excuses to play with paper.

Floral Monograms Cutting Collection: WPC, ...

We know that our customers love monograms. We get many requests for them, and they are always on our list of files to be made. It's not surprising that they are so popular, as monograms are an easy way to take an inexpensive item and make it a thoughtful personalized gift. These monograms are very detailed and were designed to be cut from vinyl, although the Inspiration Vue can handle the details on paper as well.


Shaped Pocket Cards and Tags Cutting Files

Shaped Pocket Cards and Tags

Pick a pocket and stuff it full of love, well wishes and maybe even a gift card or cash. These cards look fancy, but are very easy to make. Cut them out with three cuts and assemble them, or dress them up with embellishments. When your card is finished, they tuck inside a #10 envelope. I've included a file for the envelope liner which simply slips inside.



Spring Wreath Printables

Spring Wreath Print and Cut ...

In real life I stink at making wreaths. I've tried and failed a few times, so I was pleasantly surprised when my paper wreaths turned out. I created these wreaths in the InVue software and it turns out having an undo button is a handy thing. If there was an undo button in real life I'm sure I could master real wreath making too.


Easter Pillow Boxes

Easter Pillow Boxes

Using files from the library I created this easy window pillow box for Easter but it could so easily be adapted for any occasion!


Easter Peeps Printable Treats

I love sending treats to my Grandkids and using my InVue software makes it so easy to send personalized treats. First I started with a basic rectangle as wide as my sandwich baggie. I knew it was going to be a topper so I doubled the size so I could fold it over. Then, using the Spring Borders Set 2 file I choose the border I liked and sized it to fit my project.



Instant Film Shaker Cards

Today let’s use an old idea to make something new. Instant photos have become the rage as of late. I have chosen to use an “instant film" cutting file to make greeting cards. In the Pazzles’ Craft Room Library you will find a pre-designed scrapbook title named Snapshots. I used only the “instant film” of this title for my card. I increased the picture to 3 inches wide. That is a good size to fit on a 4.5 X 6 inch card. You will see that I made a plain picture as well as some with words at the bottom. The words add a tad bit more fun. We can make it even more festive by adding confetti to the “picture.” This means that the photo portion of the “instant film” needs a “window.”



Shaped Number Notecards from Pazzles

Shaped Number Gift Tags

We're finishing up our typography week with Number Shaped Gift Tags. I love shaped cards and I know many of you have asked for more shaped cards in the Craft Room. Today I am bombarding you with 25 number shaped cards. The downloadable files include numbers 1-20 and 30,40,50,60 and 70. The files are sized for gift tags, but you can certainly enlarge the file and make them as regular sized cards. These cards can be used to mark a child's birthday or special event. The simple graphic design of the number card makes it perfect for teenagers too. I've included 30,40,50,60 and 70 to include significant birthdays and to mark special anniversaries.



Life Is Like A Bicycle

Life Is Like a Bicycle ...

Have you ever used your Pazzles Inspiration or Vue to create printables or wall art?

With so many files available in the Pazzles Craft Room, we are able to create just about anything for any occasion.

By selecting a saying or quote that you love, all you need to do is play around with the fonts and sizing together with a Craft Room file or two to ‘decorate’ it. Song lyrics are great for this too.


Wine Cork Projects: Wine Cork Fairies

Wine Cork Fairies

Basil and her friend Thyme have been busy working in their fairy gardens in the wine vineyards here in Idaho. They can tell spring is right around the corner, and have been getting things ready for cherished friends to come visit. If you've been doing a little spring cleaning of your own, don't forget to sit back and enjoy a little relaxation over a glass of wine. Perhaps the garden fairies will fly by to help with the chores and sprinkle a little magic along the way.

Hopes and Dreams Journal

Hopes and Dreams Journal

With every new year there's a quest to learn something new, adopt healthy habits, and start setting new goals. It's nice to have a place that you can write down your thoughts, motivational quotes, and keep track of what you plan to accomplish. I purchased this Wexford Composition Book 9.75" x 7.5" for under $3.00 at my local Walgreens store. I loved the fact that I can decorate it with my favorite paper line, and take advantage of all the scraps I collect. It's a great way to use up fibers too, and leave bits and pieces hanging from the pages. The busier, the better, and the ideas are endless!


Easy Classroom Valentine Ideas

Classroom Valentine Roundup

Last week we shared easy classroom valentine ideas here on the blog. It's a yearly tradition in the Pazzles Craft Room to devote a week to this theme. We have lots of new members since last Valentine's Day so I thought it would be fun to do a little roundup of our most popular classroom valentine ideas. We've done the easy classroom valentines for five years now, so there are many, many ideas for you with cutting files included. You can browse all of the Valentine ideas here in the Projects section, but here are a few of our most popular classroom valentine ideas. Owl Valentine




Decorative File Folders

Thanks for joining the Design Team for Organization week. It's time to wrap it up and I've got a fun project to share with you today. I've wanted to make these decorated file folders for a long time and I finally had the perfect reason to do so. Being organized is a great feeling, but being organized with cute office supplies is even better. For the larger file folders, I've created covers that you can adhere on the front and inside of pre-purchased file folders. I tested three kinds of file folders and they all seemed standard, so these should work on all brands of file folders. The labels simply fold in half and adhere to the folder tab. I used Chalkboard Vinyl for the write-on portion of my label. That way I can reorganize and change my mind without tossing the folder.


Organization Week: Garden Stakes

It’s that time of the year. The holidays are over, all the decorations are safely packed away, and the family has all gone home. If you are anything like me you have probably already broken half of your New Year’s resolutions. Now its time to organize, and this year I’m going to organize my garden. Every year my hubby plants my garden and always throws away the plant tags before I can get to them. This year with the help of the new InVue software and the Pazzles Craft Room I made these cute garden stakes.


Organization Week: Craft Stash Oganization

Hi, it’s Belle here today sharing a project to help organize yourself or your craft stash! For those who know me, I love to organize (a lot). Funny thing is, I’m not always as organized as I’d like to be, but I love organizing just the same. This little project is something I’ve been meaning to get to for a while – labeling my little jars that have my paper flowers in them with a ‘better than average’ label! That’s where this simple Craft Room Library Flower file came in handy. With only four sets of paper to cut, it was a quick project to complete. I chose two simple shades of pink for my flowers, the same green for both of the leaves and then the white centre of the flower meant my text was easy to read.

New Years Eve Crackers

I was not aware of “crackers” until I became an adult. They are just as fun for me as for kids! There are two cracker files in the Pazzles Craft Room that you can use for any special occasion, Cracker Box and Cracker Box 2 . Today I have dressed them up for New Years! These are very easy to assemble. I also added Print & Cut images from the Happy New Year Title as a bonus decoration.
