Cut and Paste Cuttable Sketch

Cut and Paste Sketches: Good ...

I've got another Cut and Paste Sketch idea for you today. This lovely layout is perfect for documenting a day at the beach or summer BBQ. The layout holds five 3x3 pictures, so you can crop down larger pictures or have your pictures printed square. Remember, just because the layout looks pastel and girly, you can cut it out of darker papers and use it for a masculine occasion as well.


Sisters Forever Layout

Design Team Favorites: Sisters Scrapbook ...

Join the Pazzles Design Team this week as we share a few of our favorite things with you. Hello crafty friends, Melinda here with you today. Our theme this week is Favorite Things. We were to use and or incorporate some of our favorite things in our projects. So here is what I came up with. My favorite thing hands down is my Pazzles Inspiration Vue. This machine literally changed my crafting. I went from hand drawing and hand cutting my paper piecings to being able to create and cut some of the most intricate designs. Aside from the machine my second favorite thing is the software. The software allows you to design your layouts before you cut a thing. I love that it works so much like many of our other programs. I can even insert the pictures I am going to use in my layout.

Grade School Scrapbook Layout

While talking to my friend the other day about her daughter's graduation, the following problem came up. She started to tell me that she realized she didn't have any completed scrapbooks or boards done for her daughter and she wasn't sure how she could get 18 years of books finished by the time graduation and her party arrived. She didn't know what to do. As we talked, I offered the solution of doing just one page per year with just her class photo on it. Then to make it even quicker and easier, she would just needed to come up with 12 color schemes and she could do the same basic layout throughout. She could then put them in an album for all to see or put them on boards for the party, and then when the party was done, she would have pages for a scrapbook.



Scrapbook Sketch: cuttable birthday scrapbook layout sketch

Cut and Paste Sketches: Birthday ...

Don't be deceived by the title of this post. This birthday layout is for every birthday celebration, whether it's for a kid, or a kid at heart. The file includes an alternate title "Birthday Boy" and includes spots for two 4"x 6" photos and two 3"x 5" photos. Remember these sketches provide inspiration, but they also include cutting files making the sketches themselves "cuttable." You can cut out all the pieces and use the sketch just as it is displayed, or use just the base pieces and add your own premade embellishments.

You've likely got a pile of spring themed photos waiting for a home. We've just finished up the Easter holiday and everything is blooming. Gardeners are busy planning and kids are dreaming of summer. Spring is well underway here in Idaho. Our Project Patterns in the InVue Software make it so easy to create the perfect layout to document your spring. Once you have downloaded the files you can open the Project in the InVue software and simply click to place different elements on your page. They are perfectly sized for the page and you can mix and match the elements to make dozens of different pages from one project.

Typography Based Layout

Giant Number Scrapbook Overlay

I’m always looking for different ways to set up my scrapbook layouts. While walking through the Expo I always see cute word frames that cost a lot of money. Well, you know and I know, it’s just paper. I started with my Inspiration Studio Pro software and found a font that had a little chunk to it. I typed a number 1 and then drew lines to give some separation for pictures. Then I added an outline and thickened all the lines. With a quick push of the WYSIWYG button I had a file which I then saved in a WPC format.


Easy Layout Backgrounds with Stencils

Hello crafty friends, Melinda here with you today sharing a fun set of layouts using something we all have...FONTS. With so many free font sites and options, you can really express your creative style! Here are the layouts I created: To start with I used my Pazzles software and created the word background. I cut it out on some black cardstock. I popped all the letters out and made sure to edit letters like "a" and "o" so that they wouldn't have any pieces "falling out" of the template. I then used the template as a mask on the first layout (Circa 1975) and sponged some chocolate ink on the pink cardstock. I loved that it gave it a vintage look. I then took a flower stamp and the same chocolate ink and inked around the layout. I matted that onto a kraft cardstock base that also had a pretty piece of patterned paper. I used my sewing machine to stitch around the pink paper with some black thread. I then used a couple of files from the Craft Room to create the flourished photo corners. I cut those out of black cardstock. I added some ribbon from May Arts and a couple of chipboard embellishments I had in my stash and all done. It wasn't too hard to do, and I let the wording of the template and the photo take center stage.


Cousins Scrapbook Layout

Cousins Scrapbook Layout

Cousins are very often our very first playmates when we are young. In our family, cousins weren't, not because we didn't want it, but we didn't live close to any of them. So when we got together, it was always so much fun for the kids. If you don't want to use this as a cousin layout, it would be easy to change the letters and get the fun title to work for you. The notebook paper is actually cut out of cardstock. I used a light blue pen with the Pazzles Pen Tool for the notebook lines and a light pink pen for the side margins.



Forever Friends Typography Layout

Forever Friends Layout Overlay

One of the things that I love about my Pazzles is that I am able to use any true type font I have on my computer. There are so many things you can create with just letters. One day as I was cutting out a lot of separate letters I realized that the negative of the paper looked as fun as the positive. I had done the kind of title that you put the paper behind, but then as I had been looking at all the fun things people are doing everywhere with subway graphics, I realized that using it for the entire page background would be so much fun.

Cut and Paste Sketches: Snowy ...

Yesterday was the first day back to school after the holiday break for my kids. Saturday night the weatherman was predicting a big storm headed our way with snow Sunday through Monday. While I groaned aloud, they started celebrating the possibility of a snow day and thus another day of freedom. I made a snow day layout with the weather forecast in mind. But guess what? It didn't happen. It rained instead, and they were back to the grind yesterday.

Book Inspired Fall Layout

Book Inspired Fall Layout

Fall/Autumn is my favourite season, and Anne of Green Gables is my favourite movie of all time. When Matthew and Anne are riding in the buggy together admiring the beauty of the fall countryside I wish I was there with them. My 8 year old daughter Charlotte chose to go to Book Week Theme Day this year dressed as Anne of Green Gables (Anne Shirley) and I couldn’t have been prouder that she’s fallen in love with the story as I did.


Wicked Witch Layout Sketch

Cut And Paste Sketches: Wicked ...

It's been a while since I shared a Cut And Paste Sketch with you, but today I have a totally wicked layout to share. I'm hoping this layout can be used to document your Halloween parties and the yummy spooky treats you bake for Halloween. There are so many great Halloween paper lines this year, so the hardest part of making this layout will be choosing which papers to use.




Great Grandma Layout

Great Grandma Layered Floral Layout

Hello crafty friends, Melin here to share a fun and easy layout with you. I started by using my software to design the layout. I used the Autumn Bouquet file for the flowers and then used my software to create the circle, the scalloped border strip and the zig zag border. I then used the Flourish Sticks file for the flourish accents. I used the software and a free font to create the title. All of the patterned papers are from the Die Cuts With A View Whimsical World Stack.


Creative Title For Die-Cutters

Creative Titles Three Ways

I have a three foot stack of Thickers Alphabet stickers in my scrap room. They are a reminder of the dark days before Pazzles when I had to plan my titles around the fact that I had no E stickers left. Now I cut whatever title I want and have no limits on letters. We all know how to cut a basic title from cardstock. Layering cardstock colors and welding words can give you a different look to your title, but today I wanted to share with you a few other creative ideas for titles using your Inspiration and the new InVue Software. The first is a faux chalkboard look. Here's how I created this look in InVue: Type your text. Change the pen line and fill to black. Make sure your text is selected. Select the outline/inline option from the left sidebar. You will see fill and pen line colors represented within that box. Change your pen line to gray and your fill to black by dragging those colors from the color palette on the right up into the Outline/Inline color selections. Select inline with a setting of .04 and click preview. Click on the green arrow just below your text to accept the changes. Using black cardstock and a white pen, first draw the gray inlines with a white pen, then cut the black letters out. To give them an extra chalk effect dip a sponge in some white ink and then lightly rub it across the cut out letters to give them chalk smudges.
