Christmas Elf

Christmas Elf

Allow me to introduce to you our new Pazzles mascot, Paz the Pazzles Elf! Paz will be popping in now and then to say Hi. He is a mischievious little guy so you never know where he will show up. In fact, he is off adventuring in the Pazzles Craft Room today.

3D Holly Berry Tag

3D Holly Berries Tag

On the tenth day of Christmas, the Pazzles elves gave to me... If you watched yesterday's video you saw the 3D Holly from today's gift featured as one of the projects. I used it to create a card for the video, but today it is featured on a tag.

Nutcracker Ballet Collection

Nutcracker Ballet Cutting Collection

The Christmas season is all about nostalgia and one of the iconic images of Christmas is the Nutcracker. We've created an adorable cast of characters for our latest collection,  Nutcracker Ballet. The set includes six characters, a 12″ x 12″ stage, a title banner, a tree and a present.

Holiday Mugs

Easy Holiday Mugs with Vinyl

A dollar store mug and some vinyl can be transformed into a unique and personalized gift. Fill these mugs with hot chocolate mix or homemade fudge and they would make great teacher or co-worker gifts.

Mouse and Cheese Hanging Gift ...

A few weeks ago we had you vote on images for this past Friday's release. The top three winners of the online image poll were a scrapbook page, a luminary, and a holiday gift item. We hope you enjoyed the layout page and luminary. These little candy cane mice were added as a holiday gift item.

Inking and Chalking Tips

Cutting out amazing images in any color, shape and size: isn't that the magic of the Pazzles Inspiration electronic cutter? I can cut paper shapes and combine layers, colors and textures to create a visual feast for the eyes. If you stop with the paper and glue you have a great project. However, if you want an amazing project you need to move beyond the paper. You can add depth and character by inking or chalking the paper to add shadow and highlights. Suddenly, like magic, the flat pieces of paper have curves and dimension.

12x12 Scrapbook Layout Birthday Snapshots 2 Photo Pazzles Inspiration

Birthday Snapshots Scrapbook Layout

We saw that quite a few of you voted for scrapbook pages when we asked what images you wanted to see in the Craft Room Library. We will happily create some complete scrapbook page cutting files in the future, but for today we wanted to showcase a layout made by pulling some existing files from the Library!

Hope Shines Through Sun Rays Sunburst Card

Hope Shines Through Card

I made this card at home for a challenge project on another forum, but Michelle loved it so much, she asked me to show it off here! I'm happy to oblige. It's a really easy 15 Minute Project using one of the Sunray Card files I designed.

Spooky Picture Transformations

Do you realize what a fantastic resource our Craft Room Library is? The images there are not just for cutting out of paper. They can be used in so many different ways! Today's 15 Minute Project is the perfect example of how versatile the designs are. In a very short amount of time you can make some amazing Spooky Transformations to photos of family and friends.

Scallop Owl Neon Prismagic Shaped Card Front

‘Owl Miss You’ Shaped Card

My best friend recently got on a plane for a three-month stint in a foreign country teaching English. All I can think is how much I'll miss her, even though I realize how selfish that is. This experience is something she's wanted to do for so long, it's a small miracle that it actually happened. I try to focus on how short the trip actually is and that she'll be back soon! With her trip in mind, I made this shaped owl card.

Make Your Own Tags

You have got to love tags! The are such a simple idea and yet they can add so much to a project. Tags can stand alone on a gift or be the accent to a card or page. They can be made plain and simple out of solid or print cardstock or they can be over-the-top with layers of paper and dimensional flowers. Whether the tag is basic or elaborate they all start with a simple shape. Maybe that is why we love them....they are so uncomplicated.

Candy Corn Bug Bag

Candy Corn Bug Box

You may have seen this cute little Candy Corn Bug in the New Images folder. When I designed him, I immediately knew that I was going to have to include him in a project. He is just too precious to pass by! I backed his wings in vellum to give them a fairy-like feel. This Candy Corn Bug Box project is probably not quite a 15-Minute Project, but it is really close! It depends on how much inking and decorating you want to do.

Leaf Tags

Autumn Harvest Gifts

Fall is my favorite time of the year. My grandpa Clyde would take us grandkids for a Saturday drive through Yellowstone National park since it was only an hour away from where we lived to look at all the Quaking Aspen trees changing colors. I was always amazed how those beautiful green leaves could change to the most vibrant reds, oranges and yellows I have ever seen. I always loved the orange leaves best because they would be so bright they were almost neon!

Haunted Village: Backdrop

It is no secret that the Halloween season is upon us. Haunted House attractions are springing up in the community, neighbors are stringing spider webs in the yard and costumes are occupying a prime location in the stores. This year we thought it would be fun to create a 3D Halloween Village. Each week, for the next four weeks, you will get another part of the diorama. It will be designed so you can fold it up and store it away for Halloween next year. After you put all the loving details into your project you will definitely want to use it again!

Soap Gift Box

Soap Gift Box

Recently I asked my Facebook fans for ideas to do with my five grandchildren ages 2 to 9. I got a lot of wonderful ideas from them! (If you want to see more ideas 'Like' my Facebook page.) One of the projects was to make soap in the microwave. It was such a success that I couldn't wait to tell the Pazzles office staff about it. Eventually I concluded that a demo was in order so I packed up the supplies and brought it all to our Pazzles kitchen.

Heart Stencil Page

Stencil Heart Layout

Plastic spray stencils are everywhere. They come in basic shapes and trendy patterns, like chevrons and hexagons. And as cool and trendy as some of them are, I always put them back on the shelf, thinking, "why buy it, when I can cut it with my Pazzles Inspiration?" Time to put that idea to work!

Stationery Box

I have a lot of friends saying, “I do” which got me thinking about gift ideas for special occasions such as this.

Paper Clip Flags

Those little flagged paper clips are adorable but way over-priced! Save money and make your own at home, they are super quick and easy!

From Card to Page Independence Day Layouts

From Card to Page

Do you consider yourself a Paper Crafter, a Card Maker or a Scrapbooker? I personally consider myself a Paper Crafter. Whether it is cards, boxes and dimensionals, or scrapbook pages, I want to make them all. However, I do know that there are those of you who are a bit more focused. I often hear, " I only make cards" or "I stick to scrapbooking". Being focused on one thing means you probably do it very well. However, be careful that you don't miss some wonderful cutting files just because they don't fit in your 'category' of interest.
