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.


Easter Party Spring Cupcake Wrappers

Make these golden nugget sucker covers for your friends and family and celebrate St. Patty's day in perfectly green fashion. Let them know how lucky they are you love them.


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.


Coffee Cup Circle Card

I wanted to create a special birthday card for a friend who loves coffee. I decided to create her card using the coffee theme. I used the Scallop Sunshine cutting file, Coffee Cup and the Let It Snow file, all of which can be found in the Craft Room Library. I enlarged the sunshine cutting file to 6 inches and mirrored and welded it to create a shaped card.


Office Folder Valentine Mailbox

I loved Valentine's Day as a kid. Waiting for candy and cards to fill my carefully decorated cereal box adorned with pink and red hearts was such fun! My favorite was waiting to play "Heads up Seven Up" during our classroom party. Those are truly treasured memories. Create this file folder Valentine and let coworkers fill it with Post-It note greetings. It's a perfect mailbox for the office. Don't forget to check and see if "You Got Mail"!



Tic Tac Toe Valentine

Tic tac toe game valentine. Put a personalized note inside with the Xs and Os and tuck the heart shaped tab closure to close the envelope.


Folded Heart Card

Pick a special person to be your Valentine and create this little belly band card to wrap your sentiments of love in.


Treat Cups

Heart Treat Cup

This fun little cup is very quick and easy to make. You just need to fold and glue, then add a special treat. I chose to use just a solid card stock and then use twine to put the tag on.
