Anniversary


Creating an Inchies Card

Whilst perusing Pinterest and pinning a large number of cards on my inspiration boards, I came across one in particular that inspired me to create a pretty card with my new Inspiration Vue! This was my first project completed on the Vue and I’m very excited about the results and can’t wait to try many new things. After agonising over which patterned paper to use from my scraps I cut 6 squares measuring 2” x 2” and laid them out in a pleasing pattern. The next step was selecting coordinated paper for some circles. Once selected, I put the Vue to work cutting these six circles. Wow! She cuts fast, and so nicely!



Project Pattern: Hello You Card

Project Patterns Two Ways

Hello Craft Room friends, Melin here with you today. My assignment was to choose one of the fun projects in the InVue Software and make a couple of projects with the same pattern. These projects are found in the local directory of your InVue Software and you get three free Project Patterns with the InVue software. There are layouts and card projects to choose from. I chose the Treasured Friendship card project. The project starts with a prescribed base. From there you can look in the modifiers folder and find sub folders to change up your backgrounds, sentiments and themed images. It really takes out a lot of the guess work for creating a project from scratch. For my first card I created, I chose to "flip" the base from a horizontal to vertical orientation. I then created a couple of quick layers for the mats.




Easel Card Base Cutting Collection

Easel Card Cutting Collection

I love the look of fancy cards with unique card bases and lots of paper layers. I like to call these little mini masterpieces super cards. It's a card you make for an extra special occasion or for an extra special recipient. I love to make super cards, but I don't like to figure out the dimensions and folds of each new pattern. The first set of card bases I created, Fun Folds Cutting Collection, has been very popular as well as the rest of the card base collections. That tells me that you ladies like to make super cards too, but don't always like to measure and score. I created this newest set mostly for myself, but I'm happy to share with you as well. After some designing and measuring I've come up with the Easel Cards Cutting Collection. There are 10 different options and lots of layers to mix and match.


Chalkboard Art Card

I just love the chalkboard look on cards. Inspired by a lovely saying that I found online, I created this note card using my Pen Tool. I created a perforated outline for the note card and then set my text in place. For my card base I used a 7" x 5" base. I used the draw tool to create two stars.



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: 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.


Tech Bytes Cutting Collection: WPC, ...

Whether you are a fan of the latest and greatest smart phone, or still embracing the floppy disk, this technology inspired collection has it all. We've made sure to include something for every type of project in this Tech Bytes Cutting Collection. If you are a card maker, scrapbooker, or lover of dimensional boxes and projects, you'll find something that will delight your inner geek. Make something special for the computer whisperer in your life. The title in this collection would be fun for t-shirt designs when cut out of Pazzles Iron-On Material.



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.


Fun Folds 2 Cutting Collection

Our original Fun Folds Collection was one of our most popular collections ever. Introducing the Fun Folds 2 Cutting Collection. Ten brand new card bases ready for you to embellish and create with. Our Fun Fold card bases give you a beautiful starting point for your creations, with no measuring and scoring. I quickly made an Easter card using the Shutter Card file and some Verve stamps. You'll notice that I actually folded this card backwards to create a new look. Instead of the center panel being on the front, I folded it to the back and adhered my oval to just one side of the card. Try this with the other folds to get even more options. The Diamond Fold Card has as completely new look when folded backwards.


Cut And Paste Sketches: Circle ...

Have you played with our Cut And Paste Sketches yet? We hope they make the planning and prepping easier so you can quickly get to the fun part of embellishing your projects. Today's card is perfect for the stampers in our group. Stamp your favorite image in the circle and color it in. The pennant on the right is the perfect spot for a sentiment stamp. If you are not a stamper, use your Pen Tool to draw your stamps.



Cut And Paste Sketches: Medallion ...

Schedule in some creative time for yourself and make a whole stack of cards to cover any occasion. I love having my own personal card store in my closet. My mother and mother-in-law shop for cards in my closet too and they love having access to whatever they might need. Today's sketch is perfect for any recipient. It can be made masculine or childish, or dressed up for an elegant version. Have fun with this sketch and share your creations with us on Facebook or in the Pazzles Albums.


Beautiful Blossoms Cutting Collection

  Every spring I start planning my garden and look forward to it with rose colored glasses. I forget about the weeds and the bugs that come along to destroy everything until it is too late. Then I vow to never plant a garden again. By the following spring I am looking forward to planting again and I forget all about the pesky problems a gardener has to deal with. You can skip the fuss and make your own flower garden this year with our Beautiful Blossoms Cutting Collection. This collection of 10 lacy floral files will make any spring project a showstopper. While these files are perfect for cards and scrapbook pages, they would also make a beautiful vinyl garden on a wall. If you miss the bugs you can just find a few in the Craft Room Library to add to your garden.


Pocket Card Gift Box

I was excited to see the new addition of the Pocket Box Card to the Craft Room Library.  The little box is just the right size for fun gifts.  This project was enlarged to 11 1/2" width. After covering the box card in pink papers, I added some of the Handful of Hearts file sized at 4 3/4”.  I love to add sewing to projects and so my absolute favorite tool is the Piercing Tool as it makes pierced holes that are separated by whatever spacing you want.  Hand stitching has never been so accurate and easy!



Folded Heart Card

Pick a special person to be your Valentine and create this little belly band card to wrap your sentiments of love in.


Steampunk Card

Hello friends, Melin here with you today sharing a masculine Valentine card. I used some Gold to go along with this month’s challenge to use Gold in your Valentine Card. Here is what I came up with. I started by cutting out my card base in kraft cardstock. My finished card size is 5 x 6.5”. I then cut a black mat, and then a kraft mat. On top of that I used all designer papers from the DCWV Industrial Chic Stack. I cut the majority of the pieces out in plain white cardstock. Then I inked and colored in the pieces with my various inks as well as a gold marker.


Love Is In The Air ...

There are so many wonderful cutting files in the Craft Room Library that I have come to the conclusion that there are simply not enough hours in the day to play. But that doesn’t stop me trying! I love the themed cutting collections and this is where I found the adorable Hot Air Balloon shape for my Valentine card. Once I imported the Hot Air Balloon cutting file from the On the Move Collection, I began to choose my papers. Sometimes this is the hardest part of a project! I decided to replace the pennants with punched hearts, so I removed them from my design. I then duplicated the image and moved it to the side of my visual mat and I rotated the balloon slightly to give more interest to the card. I welded the elements and then made an outline. I drew a rectangle box below and welded together the top half of the balloon and the rectangle to create my shaped card. I duplicated, mirrored and welded my shape to create my folded base card. (See Making Shaped Cards video tutorial). I cut out and adhered my cloud patterned paper to my base card. I then cut out some clouds out of white cardstock using the Heart Cloud cutting file and inked the edges in blue. I assembled all the layers of my balloon to the card.



Valentine Gift Set

I keep hand sanitizer in just about every room of my house. I think the bottles are boring and stick out like a sore thumb so I decorated them for Christmas and that got me to thinking…why not do it for every holiday or season? I used the subtract weld technique to create these fun Valentine’s Day covers. I used vinyl so splatters would not ruin the design. Now the bottles are a part of the holiday decor instead of an eyesore.



Chain of Love

Chain of Love

For all those crushes and special someones in our lives who truly sink our hearts, this ball and chain is the perfect Valentine. It can be mass produced for a classroom, or made just for that one and only, special Valentine.



Monster Finger Puppet

Monster Finger Puppets

This nice little monster comes with three separate "monster" sentiments which can be attached to the Valentine. Take off the sentiment and play with the monster finger puppet or use the holes for candy or a pencil.


Heart Tag Pocket Card

It's never too early to start planning a special something for your Valentine. At Pazzles, we are ready to get the ball rolling on Valentine's Day projects so you will have plenty of time to get prepared for the sweetest of all holidays. Today we are sharing this tag card that can be made simply or embellished into something amazing.


Love Card

Have you seen the New Images added to our Image Library on Friday? The latest group included three cards. The Hello Card just begged to be recreated. It was so simple and yet it had so much potential! I could envision several different ways to interpret it.
