Nesting Birds Print & Cut ...

Recently, Pazzles has been providing us with some lovely sketches which include cutting files ready for download available in the Pazzles Craft Room. If you have not tried any of the Cut And Paste Sketches so far, I urge you to have a go. Once you have downloaded the sketch cutting file all you need to do is import the sketch cutting file into your Pazzles software. For my project I used the Circle Spotlight Card sketch. Now the difficult bit…….decisions! Choose your coordinating paper and cardstock and cut according to the design. You don’t even need to stick to the design and you can use all, some, or one element(s) of the design in your project.



DIY Scrapbook Embellishments: Pocket Cards

Hello crafty friends, Melin here with you today to share some fun embellishments I have created with my beloved Pazzles and the Pazzles Software. Pocket scrapbooking continues to enjoy a growing popularity within the scrapbooking community, so I decided to see how I could use my Pazzles to help me make some great cards to go with this fun way of scrapbooking. Here is what I came up with.


DIY Scrapbook Embellishments: Flowers

I have so many scraps left from all my projects. I’ve decided to use some of my scraps to make some flower embellishments. How fun to just make them ahead of time in different colors and sizes using all of our scraps. This way when we’re working on a project it will be much easier to just go and pull out what we need. There are so many beautiful flower cutting files in the Craft Room Library. I decided to start my embellishment collection with the Large Flower and the Flower Bunch cutting files which can all be found in the Library. I simply set the cutting file at the size I wanted. I added a dimensional square between each layer of a flowers to help give more dimension. I then chalked and embellished with either a rhinestone, brad, or pearl for the centers. Now I will have an assortment of flower embellishments to add to any project.


DIY Scrapbook Embellishments: Bicycles and ...

I love to bike ride. It’s so nice to breathe the fresh air. It makes me feel so carefree… until I have to pedal up a steep hill! I have always loved the novelty of tandem bikes and wished I had one…so someone else could pedal! I made five different embellishments to help me savor the feeling I get when I ride my bike! I hope they will inspire you and help you get your scrapbooking page or card put together in a snap. Though I chose a bike theme, these embellishments can be turned into any theme you can imagine. Instead of using the quote, "I would go anywhere with you. On a bicycle built for two”. You could say “If friends were flowers, I would pick you”. Then change the pictures of the bicycles to pictures of flowers. All the embellishments using images or quotes were cut out using the print and cut technique.



Candy Bowties

Candy Filled Bow Ties for ...

My dad is a hard man to give gifts to. He really doesn't have any hobbies besides reading and attending all of his grand kids sporting events. Nothing themed ever fits the bill for his gifts. He doesn't hunt, fish, golf or do any of the other manly things fathers do. As a result he usually gets a new book or two and a treat for every major holiday. I've learned you really can't go wrong with candy. And although my dad doesn't wear bow ties either, this year he's getting his candy with a bit of style. There are two versions of today's project. The first is a simple tag to attach to a bag of candy. I've included tags sized for both the larger bags of candy and the individual sized bags.


Cut And Paste Sketches: Scallop ...

I have some tiny little tag stickers that I bought years ago. The company was going out of business and I wanted to make sure I never ran out, so I bought several packages. These little sticker tags are the cutest things. Most of them are only about 1/2" tall and they look aged and vintage. This card was inspired by the sticker tags. Cut out your own tags and make them the centerpiece of your card.


Tri-Shutter Mother’s Day Card

I love creating pretty, and heartfelt projects for other people to enjoy, and with Mother's Day this month, I took this as an opportunity to test out one of the new Fun Folds Cards from the Fun Folds 2 Collection. For this project I chose the Tri Shutter Card and went to work on bringing it to life. I had some pretty Kaisercraft paper in my stash, which is double sided so it took the 'pain' out of selecting a coordinating paper from a rather large collection of patterned paper. All I had to do after cutting out the base and mats was turn over a few pieces to break up the design, ink them and secure them to get ready for the fun part of adding embellishments!



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.

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!
