Desk Organizer Box

Desktop Organizer Box

This fun organizer box is great to sit on your desk for those things that you always need to have handy, but don't want to look cluttered. It would also be great for make up or your finger nail supplies. Use your imagination and use it where it is the most convenient for you. The dividers inside can be where you choose to put them or if you prefer, don't put in any dividers.

DIY Suncatcher

Make Your Own Spring Suncatcher

Spring is on the horizon, flowers are getting ready to bloom and the sun is ready to give all its warmth to the Earth. I love this time of year and one of my favorite things are sun catchers. I have been making them in one form or another since I was a little girl. For today’s project I’m using the Pen Tool and transparency film. In my InVue software I drew two squares turning one on end inside the other to form my design. Then I imported the Daffodils file from the Craft Room and with a little finessing was able to make the file so no lines overlapped.

Salt and Light Framed Vinyl ...

This month was a new challenge for me. I was assigned to create a project around the theme “Typography.” If you have used the fit text to path option with the Pro Software, you can see where it might be easier to manipulate the text. However, I used the newer InVue Software to create my project. As the InVue Software does not yet have the fit text to path option, I was a little lost at first. Then I realized that working with the text was easier and just as fun. By foregoing fit to text, I was able to manipulate each letter freely. I did draw the salt shaker and flame myself. However, you can find a salt shaker and flames in the Pazzles Craft Room Library. I cut the outline for the shaker and the flame, as well as the type, out of vinyl. I adhered the vinyl to cardstock. I used a white gel pen to write the scripture address, as it is so tiny. My finished, framed pictures each measure just under 6" X 8".

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.

Decorative File Folders

Being organized is a great feeling, but being organized with cute office supplies is even better. Create labels and covers that you can adhere on the front and inside of any standard pre-purchased file folder.

DIY Menu Planner Board

Organization Week: Menu Board Planner

It is a brand new year and time to get organized! Don’t huff and groan. I am going to start you off easy. I created a striking, modular Menu Board. Sit yourself down here at the hearth and I’ll teach you how to make one for your kitchen. It was wonderful to design my entire project in the Pazzles InVue Software. The software is a great tool for getting your ideas down “on paper” yet still be able to easily manipulate it and make notes. To play around with shapes, their sizes, and various fonts is a blessing for this non-artist. My metal sign measures 12 X 16 inches. In my InVue software, I created a new file measuring 12 X 24 inches. I chose and made shapes that represented the image in my head. Originally I was going to simply cut circles out of card stock for the days of the week. As my project evolved, I decided to use decorative bottle caps. Each letter representing the days of the week are cut from Pazzles Vinyl.

DIY Home Calendar Planner

Organization Week: DIY Home Calendar

Hello crafty friends, Melin here with you today sharing my calendar. Part of being organized for me means keeping better track of time. So I decided to create this calendar that will hang on my bulletin board. I started by using a standard 12" x 12" scrapbook page size. From there I laid out my concept with my software. I love being able to lay my project out in my software before I cut anything. It helps me figure out my die cut sizes as well as what pieces I will use. Once I laid it all out, I picked my papers. I started by cutting a base of the Doilie Frame cut file from the library. I then cut the Flourish Hardware, Royal Damask, Wire Dress Form and the Doilie Frame 2 all from the Craft Room Library.

Vinyl on Glass Frame

Personalized Frame Idea with Vinyl

Vinyl is a creative way to say something unique in an entirely new way. If you have a friend getting married, a family member's birthday, or maybe you just want to decorate your own walls with a little personal message to someone you love, this idea is definitely the way to do it. I found this floating frame at my local Home Goods store. It worked perfectly for showcasing my project. Since my vinyl is sandwiched between two pieces of glass the finished product looks professional, and gift giving worthy. It couldn't have worked out more perfectly. It's amazing how cute of a project you can make for less than $10.00, and nothing says I love you more than homemade!

Upcycled Winter Home Decor Sign

One of my friends was going to throw out an old home décor sign and asked if I wanted it. I originally said no. The sign was funny but nothing I would use. Then I got to thinking about it and told her I had changed my mind and I would love to have it. The whole time I was thinking about how I was going to repurpose it. I decided to make a winter sign instead of a holiday sign, so I could use it throughout the season. I was going to sand the sign down and repaint it but then I decided to just flip the sign over and use the back, as the base coat was the exact color I needed.

New Years Wreath Door Decoration

New Years Wreath Door Decoration

Need a great door decoration for your New Years party? You know Pazzles can help you with that. Here I cut out a wreath form out of cereal boxes with my trusty Inspiration Vue. I cut a circle inside of a circle to create a wreath form. I did cut out three of them and glued them on top of each other to give my wreath more stability. Then I started collecting stuff for my wreath. I found I had some gold tulle and some gold star trim as well as some clear acetate. I wrapped the form in the tulle twice again to make it look fuller and then with the star garland. I found some great files in the Pazzles Craft Room to decorate. I then wrote Happy New Year 2015 and gave it an outline in black. I used Core’dinations Gold Pearls Paper to cut out the lettering. The champagne bottles are from the Craft Room Library, New Years Bursting Bottle file and the glasses were from the 2011 file.

Thanksgiving Turkey Box

Turkey Box Remake

This fun turkey makes a great decoration for the mantel, or an end table, or use it as a Thanksgiving table decoration. If you want to use it for place cards, be sure and look to see what Design Team member, Melinda Beltran did with a few modifications. When I made the original turkey box a few years ago, I had no idea that it would remain one of my all time favorite projects that I had created. I have done a few modifications to the file to make it quicker and easier to assemble, without taking away from the fun personality of this character.

Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Happiness Table Top Banner

I love personalizing my projects and I generally try creating my projects with someone special in mind. I love giving my creativity away and having that person know it was made especially for them. Thanksgiving is right around the corner. For those hosting your own turkey day, this is a great way to greet guests with personalized messages. Perhaps the use family name, or glue several sections together and make an entire saying for your Thanksgiving centerpiece.

Sunflower Bouquet in a French ...

Fall brings us beautiful colors, pumpkins, hay rides and flowers! I love the fall weather, just cool enough to wear a sweater and nice enough to sit on the front porch swing. Every time we go to the pumpkin patch they have cut sunflowers for sale in large French tin vases. I just love the way they look and smell! It’s one of my favorite spots to sneak off to while the kids are playing nearby with their dad. I just drink in the scent and beautiful blooms! I can’t resist touching the petals and I always bring a bunch home! Since pumpkin patch time has arrived, I got to thinking about all the fun and many memories we shared in the prior years of going. One of my fondest memories is of the sunflower bouquets in those tall silver flower pots lined up on hay bales just waiting to be scooped up! While thinking about these memories I decided I would fire up the Pazzles Vue and recreate those memories in a more permanent way. One of my favorite things about the Pazzles Inspiration Vue is that, if you can think it up you can create it! The projects I’ve made with my Pazzles have brought our family much joy, giggles, fun and lots of new traditions. This project will only add to those traditions and memories.

Halloween Wall Hanging

Halloween Wall Canvas

As most of you know I went on the Pazzles Cruise. I was so inspired by the canvas project that Klo taught us that I wanted to share it with all of you. So first of all I got a 12 x 12 canvas. In the class we used the Pazzles Stencil Material but I didn’t have any of that on hand, so I took a trip to the hardware store. I found one of those 11 x 11 no trespassing signs and figured "it's plastic, so why not give it a try". While I was there I also picked up some joint compound and some glow in the dark spray paint, but that’s for a later project.

Halloween Subway Art Canvas

This fun Halloween Canvas is a great addition to anyone's decorations. With the fun words and nearly see through spider web, it will make your friends take a second look. I have to admit, this is probably one of my favorite Halloween decorations I have ever made. I can see myself using it for years to come, because it just goes with any style of decor. After painting the canvas, I used Mod Podge on the canvas. I then used the gray vinyl from the Pazzles Neutral pack for the words. This keeps it subtle, but you can still see it through the frosted vinyl from the Pazzles Primary Pack, that is generally used to give the look of etched glass. It gives a wonderful effect for the spider and its web.

Halloween Lamp with Vinyl Silhouette

Halloween is right around the corner, and who doesn’t like to decorate for the holidays? This is a super easy project and it’s so much fun! When the lamp is off you can’t see the design. But when someone turns it on, POP, there it is! It is so fun to see their faces when they turn the lamp on! My son said, “It’s kinda like the Christmas tree. I just can’t stop looking at it.” I combined several Halloween files from the Craft Room Library to create this scene. Once I got my design the way I wanted it, I welded the elements together. (Make sure you reverse your design before cutting, especially if you are adding words.) I cut my design out using Pazzles Wall Vinyl in Cotton (White).

Family Heart Wall Hanging

This wall hanging was inspired by a table top piece a friend of mine liked on Facebook, so I decided to make her one for her wall. I used the heart from the Heart and Bow file in the Craft Room Library and sized it to 7.5 inches. Then I used the Edwardian Script font to add the saying and added some holes to attach ribbon for hanging. After I cut it out, I inked all the edges and filled in some of the lettering. To decorate it I used a simple flourish, the Curlz file from the Craft Room and some bling. This was a really simple project and can be made in no time at all. I could see this as a name plate on a little girl's bedroom door or nursery, or just on the wall with your favorite saying like this one.

Happy Birthday Wood Sign

Birthdays are a big deal at my house. My mom always made birthdays special with a handmade decorated cake and our favorite box of sugary breakfast cereal waiting for us. It was the only time we got sugary cereal and it was a huge deal to open that box. I'm carrying on the big birthday celebration at my own house. When a birthday comes along we celebrate! I spotted this birthday sign idea on Pinterest a few years ago and I've wanted to make one. Vinyl week happens to coincide with my son's birthday month, so it was the perfect time to whip it up.
