Christmas Tree Pieced Card Two ...

Do you have your Christmas cards done yet? I am still working on mine. Every year I try to design an easy card that I can duplicate pretty effortlessly so I can get them done on time. But then there are a few special people who mean the world to me and I want to send them a special card. Maybe something a little more creative. A card they will know I spent time on just for them! But during this time of year, who has time to design a whole different card? Not me! So instead I took my original design and vamped it up! On the simpler card I used the Tree, Squirrel and Ribbon Banner files from the Craft Room. The snowflake is in the Pro 2014 software image gallery and I used the drawing tool to create the star, then I assembled them in a pretty basic design.


Christmas Cards Set

Happy Holidays Christmas Cards Two ...

From CAS (clean and simple) to just a little more fancy, whichever you prefer, this card has you covered. Clean and Simple Christmas Card First I made a simple card by drawing a rectangle and giving it a ducktail (ribbon) end. I duplicated and then resized them, giving me a step effect. I cut out the banners in simple red and green paper. I then cut a piece of white to fit the front of my card and used my Pazzles Pen Tool to add Happy Holidays with the Alex Brush font. I added it all to a premade card base to create a very simple, and easily duplicated holiday card, which comes in handy if you have to make a lot of them.

Candy Cane Christmas Cards Two ...

Hi fellow Pazzlers, Joanna here with you to share two Christmas cards using my Pazzles Inspiration. One is a Print and Cut card that can be made in bulk and the other is using the same design but paper pieced. The second card is more time consuming to make, therefore you would possibly only wish to make these for your closest friends! I sized the cards exactly the same and used the rhinestone feature on both the base cards. Instead of using rhinestones which would be quite expensive I filled the rhinestone design with a red fill and red line colour, then Print and Cut my base card. Print & Cut Candy Cane Christmas Card I created my rectangle for the inside white card and made an outline for the red card. Check out the Video Tutorial on Creating an Outline, which will help you with this process. I imported the Candy Cane cutting file into my software, which I found in the Pazzles Library.


Thnaksgiving Kid's Table

Thanksgiving Kid’s Table Activity Mat

I love Thanksgiving, not just for all the delicious food, but for the feeling in the air too. As a kid I loved how the adults sat at one table and all of us cousins got to sit at another table decorated especially for us. To carry on my favorite childhood memory I decided to create a project designed with your own little turkeys in mind this Thanksgiving. Use this fun activity placemat, cup and napkin ring set to keep little hands busy while they wait for dinner to be served. Let them decorate their own cups and listen to them giggle as they “gobble” up cherished memories this Thanksgiving.


Printable Cherry Pie Slice

Printable Cherry Pie Slice

A delicious print and cut project that is 'easy as pie' to make! The back of the box opens so you can tuck small treats or treasures inside.



Make Your Own Comic Book

When I was a kid I had a subscription to Archie and Friends. I loved racing to the mailbox on Friday after school to get my comic book. It got me thinking about some silly pictures I have and how some of the photos deserve to have a timeline story told about them. Maybe you have a series of photos start to finish; like teenagers getting ready for prom, cute proposals, funny wedding parties. There’s bound to be some treasurable memories with some noteworthy stories. Create captions and headings for your photographs and have fun sharing your comical life adventures in your own comic book series..

Halloween-Bat-Tube-Favors

Halloween Bat Tube Favors

Joanna here today, with a Halloween themed blog post. It’s that time of the year when we can go Batty at Halloween. It is such fun to make all those treat favors for the kids…….you can just let your imagination run! I have used an existing file in the Craft Room Library, using the Pillow Box Bat. I decided to tweak the file so that I could make a snug wrap around my plastic food safe tubes. I have included the file for you, so all the hard work has been done. If you use larger or smaller tubes you may need to resize the wrap.



WCMD: Create a Winter Scene ...

Thank you so much for playing along with us today! It's been fun celebrating with you! We have one more technique to share. Use Pazzles Stencil Plastic to create snowy backgrounds for your projects. Cut your stencil from stencil plastic and lay it on top of your card. Holding it firmly in place, carefully spread Gesso (or paint) over the stencil in a thin coat. Peel up your stencil and let it dry for a cool textured effect.


WCMD: Picture Perfect Day Camera ...

This is a great card to send to a friend that you are just thinking about. Behind the fun lens, you can put a greeting or maybe a fun photo. To create this card, I used my Pen Tool to give the lens details and add a nice look across the bottom. After using the Pen Tool, I cut all of my pieces out. I then glued the vellum behind the viewer and the acetate for the lens on the back of the card, then I attached the single camera piece over them to give the inside a clean look.


60th Shutter Card

60th Birthday Shutter Card

August is such a crazy month for our family with birthdays what feels like every other day! It’s not just our immediate family, but many friends as well. It’s a busy, but happy month. I may be my own worst enemy, but for some reason I don’t often re-create the same card design. I like to do unique designs for each person. However, there was a card I made earlier this year that looked so striking I used it for my inspiration for this one. You can’t go wrong with the Fun Folds Card Collections – for this project I’ve selected the Shutter Card with the oval on the front face. I have omitted the oval and replaced it with the Vintage Frame file instead.



Make A Monster Project Pattern

Pazzles Project Pattern: Make A ...

Just in time to delight your Halloween goblins and ghouls, we have a new Project Pattern: Make A Monster. You'll find all the monster parts you need to create a dozen or more little monster characters. Once they are designed, cut them out or print and cut them to make layout and card embellishments. These would make some pretty cute Halloween party invitations and decorations as well. For an introduction to our Project Patterns concept and instructions on using the files, please visit last month's Project Pattern release.





Burlap Treat Bag

Burlap Gift Bags with Print ...

Nothing gives me greater pleasure than giving my friends handmade gifts. Using my Pazzles software and cutting machine enables me to design personalized projects which make simple gifts so much more special. As you have probably become aware, during my time on the Pazzles Design Team, I love using my Pazzles for Print and Cut projects. When you have tried this technique a few times there will be no stopping you, honestly! For the larger bag, I have created a topper for my friend using the Doily cutting file found in the Pazzles Library. I created several outlines using different thicknesses to create the look I wanted. You will find a video tutorial Creating an Outline in the Pazzles Craft Room which will help you understand the method.


Pencil Homework Sign

Pencil Homework Sign

Today we are doing our homework! It is back to school time and everyone is getting prepared. I have created two quick back to school items using one file from the Pazzles Craft Room. I am using the School Pencil file to help both the teacher and student! A note "FOR" the teacher. I found an over-sized clothespin at the craft store. Mine measures just under 5 inches in length and over 1 inch in width. I used my Pazzles software to draw a rectangle representing the clothespin. Then I placed the rectangle on top of the pencil file, and re-sized the pencil to fit just around the clothespin.

Back To School Photo Props

It's that time of year again. Time to put on the new fall school clothes even though it is still 95 degrees outside, do your child's hair extra special and take that traditional first day of school photo. When I was a child, we held up the appropriate number of fingers to designate our new grade, but thanks to Pinterest, first day of school pictures have become much fancier. After the first day of school outfits have been planned, the next step is to cut out these first day of school photo props. We've got grades K-12 covered.


Mason Jar Printable Cards

New Inspiration Vue creative cutters are beginning to arrive all over the country! I'm so excited for you to try out the print and cut feature of your Inspiration Vue and fall in love with all that it can do. Today I've created a set of printable mason jar cards. Use the new print and cut feature to cut out the mason jars and attach them to the mason jar shaped card base. These mason jar printables can also be resized and used as tags or scrapbook layout embellishments. If this is your first print and cut project, please be sure to refer to the Quick Start Guide that came with your machine. It will walk you through the steps of using your cutter. If you are using the original Inspiration you can cut the mason jars out by hand or watch our tutorial video, How To Use Print & Cut on the Original Inspiration.


Mason Jar Tag

Mason Jar Butterfly Tag

I love giving handmade gifts to my friends and I always think a handmade tag or card just makes the gift complete. For my Design Team project I decided to have a go at painting a jam jar, popular brand names are Mason or Kilner. They can be bought cheaply from Home Décor stores in the USA and here in the UK. I looked up a few tutorials on the internet, on how to decorate my glass jar to accompany my flowers and tag.



Baby Shower Frog Gift Box

Baby Frog Gift Card Box

Gift cards are great for baby showers, as this allows for the mom to be to buy exactly what she needs. I thought it would be a great idea to dress up a packaging box I had saved. I used the Baby Frog, Ribbon Slot Borders and Scallop Mat files which can all be found in the Craft Room Library. Tuck cash or gift card inside this gift card box and you are ready to go.


Baby Week: Baby Shower Banner ...

I hope you are enjoying celebrating babies here at Pazzles. The cuteness is limitless! I have used the Dimensional Bow from the Craft Room to create a darling pink banner to welcome a baby girl. At first I was going to use only one layer for the bows. I was worried that the bows would come out too big, but I am glad I used other layers. So Cute! You can always change the size, but I went with the imported size. This file is so easy to use. You will want to make extra bows to spread throughout the room! In the center of the banner, I have used the Onesie file from the Craft Room to announce the baby’s sex. It is strung together with a coordinating, but bright, hemp string.


Cut And Paste Sketches: File ...

I've mentioned before my love of paper started with office supplies and I admit I still love them. The back to school section of Target makes me giddy. Today's card was inspired by office supplies. This little file folder tab card would look even better held together with a big paperclip. Have fun with this design!
