Father's Day Snack Pack Gift

Dad’s Day Snack Pack

It's a scientific fact that men like snacks. This is based on my own research and observations of the 10-12 men I spend the most time with, so it must be true on a larger scale.


5 Projects to Make with ...

School is winding down, or over for the summer here in the US and it won't be long until the famous summer boredom sets in. Coming up with activities to answer those complaints is a parent's summer homework. Luckily you have the world's best DIY machine, so you'll be able to ace that homework. Here are five craft projects you can make with your kids using your Inspiration. Next time you have a child five inches from your face complaining that there is nothing to do, you'll be prepared. 1. Paper Sailboats Cut these out of white paper and let the kids decorate them. After they're done designing, get them laminated so they'll last for a bit.


Candy Bar Wrappers

Father’s Day Candy Wrappers

Dads wear lots of shirts, and sometimes many different ones in a single day. These candy wrappers include a flannel shirt, suit and tie, scrubs and a t-shirt you can customize for whatever your dad is into.



Donut Cards Project Pattern

This is a cute project specifically created for dieting bakers. If that's you, you're welcome! Now you can "bake up a storm" and still stay on your diet. Make as many donut cards as you'd like and you won't gain a pound. After you've made a dozen different donuts, then tuck them into the donut box for safe keeping. As always, our Project Patterns make it easy to create projects in multiples with just a few clicks when opened in the InVue software. If you need a refresher on how to use these Project Patterns you can find more information here.

Join the Pazzles Design Team this week as we share a few of our favorite things with you. My favourite thing – I have so many, but when it comes to cutting files, this vintage frame is my go to file and has become a favourite. Couple that with this terrific quote, and two of my favourite things come together to make a lovely home décor piece for my craft room. “Being creative is not a HOBBY – It’s a way of LIFE!"



Floating Butterfly Rainbow Card

A pretty butterfly overlay reveals rainbow colors under each wing. Add any sentiment and a little string for a perfect any-occasion card.


monogram mom card

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.



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? The software is so much more than a tool to cut, draw, emboss, pierce, distress etc. It offers a world of possibility for creative expression in so many ways. With so many files available in the Pazzles Craft Room, we are able to create just about anything for any occasion. Recipe for total typography fun – many Craft Room files – a quote obsession/collection – and a font collection/obsession mix together and voila! 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
