Star Shaped Gift Box

Star Shaped Baby Gift Box

Joanna here again, with a Star Shaped Gift Box. For those of you familiar with my projects you will know that I love making Print and Cut projects as well as 3D items. There are several colleagues at work who are expecting babies and these days they seemed to be so well prepared before the birth, and let everyone know the sex of the baby. Selfishly, this helps enormously when making new born gifts. The Star Shaped Gift Box is a simple cutting file, but I love the depth of the box and how the base of the box is cut out of one piece of paper. I cut the base of my box using Kraft cardstock to give it more strength. This enabled me to indulge in my pretty pink papers for the top of the box.


Baby Room Decor

String Lights Banner

I recently helped host a baby shower. I wanted something that helped showcase baby’s gifts and came up with this string lights banner. I wanted to use a thin font that had extra details and pieces that I wouldn’t typically use for paper crafting, yet the font worked like a charm using vinyl! I used some scraps of ribbon in an assortment of colors, and tied them along the string of lights. I think it turned out cute, and was a great way to “light” up the special day.


Pazzles Project Patterns

Baby Layout Project Pattern

One of the cool new features in the InVue software is our new Pazzles Project Patterns. You have to see this in action to understand the full possibilities, but let me assure you-it is awesome! The InVue software comes with four Project Patterns and we will be adding more each month. Essentially you open a Project Pattern and you see a sketch (layout or card). Several pieces of the sketch are "replaceable". You click on the replaceable shape and then select a predesigned coordinating image from a drop down menu. The image automatically replaces the selected shape and resizes the new shape to fit perfectly. Here is an idea of what can be done. When you open the project it will look like this:



Elegant Envelopes Cutting Collection: WPC, ...

Find these cute Stork and Baby files in the Craft Room Library to help deliver your envelopes to let friends and family know your family is growing by two feet.


Mini Baby Album

Baby Mini Album

It's been a while since my babies were actual babies, but I get invited to lots of baby showers. I love to celebrate babies, and I love to tuck something handmade in with my gift. This mini album makes the perfect little something and can be customized in so many ways. Add a picture each month for baby's first year and give it to grandma for a brag book, or keep it as a memento for yourself. Switch it up and create only nine of the pages, so the mom to be can document her growing belly month by month. The mini album set includes tabbed pages and numbers up to 12 to add to the tabs. The Craft Room is full of baby themed cutting files, but I've included just a few more to use while embellishing the album. There is no right or wrong way to decorate this, just adjust it to fit your needs and have fun decorating each page.


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 Bootie Shower Favors

I used the cute little baby bootie file from the CD51: Party CD to create the adorable bootie favors. I used some Die Cuts With A View papers from the baby girl stack. I simply added some lace and pearls around the bottom and a pretty flower with gem for the "snap". I filled it with some candy kisses and they were ready to go! For my hot air balloon favor, I used the free Berry Basket file for the base. I hot glued two bamboo skewers and then inserted them into the balloon. The balloon is from the On the Move Hot Air Balloon file.


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.


Baby Shower Wreath

Baby Week: Baby Shower Decoration

This wreath will welcome your guests as they arrive to your baby shower. It will set the tone and get your guests excited before the baby shower even starts! Once all your guests arrive you can move your wreath inside and use it for an indoor baby shower decoration too! It can easily be changed from girl to boy with just a little tweaking. Instructions: I cut about 130 3.25 inch circles. Yes, I know this sounds like a lot but it goes super-fast using your Pazzles Creative Cutter! I used a 90 year old music book for mine but you can buy a cheap book at a thrift store, use printed scrapbooking paper, print your own on your printer or just buy colored copy paper. I think it would be precious to use an old nursery rhyme book. *NOTE: The paper you use for the circles needs to be the thickness of copy paper or the pages of a book. You don’t want to use cardstock for this project. The paper needs to be flexible as you are gluing them very close together and cardstock creases easily, giving your wreath a more angular look. Instead, we are going for a softer feel since it is for a baby shower.



Baby Shower Rattle Invitation

Baby Week: Baby Rattle Shower ...

It’s Baby Week and who doesn’t love babies? So for you I have created a shower invitation using the Baby Rattle file. The first thing I did was to resize it to fit in a standard invitation envelope. I then added two circles, one for the front and one for the back. The front one was for information (i.e. who, when, rsvp) which I did with the Pazzles Pen Tool. I used Edwardian script font and then hand wrote the information, but you could do the whole thing with the Pen Tool. The back circle was for decorative paper. I added some inking and a bow and it turned out great. It's very simple and very fast. You could do a lot of these in no time at all and you can get six out of one piece of 12" x 12" cardstock. Tip: make sure you make an extra one for the mom to keep in the baby book.


Baby Week: Onesie Shower Invitations

Hello fellow crafters, Joanna here today highlighting some Baby Shower printables using Print and Cut with your Pazzles. I thought I would share with you how versatile using the Print and Cut technique with your Pazzles can be to create even more creativity. You could of course paper piece some of the elements such as the onesie with your favorite papers. However, when sending out invitations in bulk it is easier and quicker to Print and Cut them. There is an excellent video tutorial How To Use Cutting Files for Print and Cut which will give you step by step instructions.


Paper Umbrella Shower Favors

This project is perfectly suited for today, because it is pouring rain outside in Kuna, Idaho. While these are intended for a bridal shower or baby shower, you can celebrate a rainy day as well! Each of these little umbrellas can hold treats. Leave them on the table for guests to enjoy at the party, or wrap them up in cellophane for take home favors. You can adapt these to hold cupcakes as well by creating the umbrella handle around a toothpick and sticking it in the top of the cupcake.



Spellbinders Digital Dies Launch Party: ...

Pazzles designer Heidi Edwards makes the coolest dimensional projects and this is no exception! Heidi's Blog This sweet little duck pull toy would make the cutest baby shower decoration. Filled with treats it can serve as a functioning candy bowl as well. Heidi created this fun piece by using the technique taught in our Making Shaped Bags Video.

On the Move Cutting Collection

On The Move Cutting Collection

  I fell in love with this sweet collection the first time I saw it. The details such as the hearts on the tires and the little pennant banners stole my heart. I know you will find 101 ways to use these transportation-related images. They are simple enough to use as a fabric applique but detailed enough to stand on their own as shaped cards or party décor.

Chalkboard Art Mini Card Set

I'll admit it. I've been sucked into the chalkboard art craze and wanted to create my own little mini masterpieces for cards. Let's be honest, drawing these by hand would take way longer than I want to spend on one card, but drawing them in the Inspiration Studio Software and letting the Pen Tool do the work, sounds just right!
