Scarecrow Shaped Card

Scarecrow Shaped Card

Are you ready for fall crafting? It's my favorite time of year for crafting because I love all of the rich colors of autumn and I love iconic fall images like leaves and pumpkins. Of course my most favorite holiday Halloween also happens to be in this season.

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.

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.

WCMD: Pen Tool Outlined Letters

Fall crafting is the best kind of crafting. I love that it's perfectly fine to put pumpkins on every project. Today I wanted to share with you a pretty technique using my favorite tool; the Pen Tool. I'm pretty sure I would buy an Inspiration just for the Pen Tool. I love the way you can dress up your cut pieces and make cool accents.

Fall Thankful Box Using The ...

Fall reminds me of pumpkin patches, beautiful warm colors, and pumpkin rolls. Every year I like to make pumpkin rolls and slice them to be packaged as gifts. I love that my Inspiration makes it so easy to be able to put together a cute box in no time, to make these sweets extra special. I saw the Cupcake Favor Box in the library and thought this would be perfect! I simply enlarged it a bit more. To decorate my box I used several cutting files which can be found in the Craft Room Library.

Fall Days Woodgrain Card

I came across some great cutting files in the Pazzles Library and was inspired to create a fall card. I needed something quick and cute, so I decided to use the print and cut technique. To create this card I used the Fall Days Title, Wood Grain Overlay 4x5, and the Banner Tag cutting files. I used Crystal Effects to give the wood grain more detail, as well as Stickles glitter on the Fall Days Title.

Cut And Paste Sketches: Finally ...

Today's sketch is perfectly timed to help you out with that stack of freshly printed fall photos. I've included an option for a 5 x 7 photo or two smaller 3 x5 photos. Attach a few of the leaves to the tree, then sprinkle the rest along the bottom of the layout. When I'm using sequins or small embellishments and want them to look random, I actually do sprinkle them on the page and then glue them down where they land. It helps achieve that truly random look.

Sweet Pumpkins Shaped Card

I love this time of the year when the leaves on the trees change colors, and the pumpkins are filling the shelves in the supermarket. I found the Three Pumpkins cutting file in the Craft Room Library. Shaped cards are really easy to create out of many cutting files, and there is a great video tutorial in the Craft Room called Making Shaped Cards to help you learn the simple steps.

Pumpkin Centerpieces

Folded Pumpkins Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. Creating these dimensional pumpkins for the fall season just seemed like the right thing. I chose colors that match my house so that I can have them out for everyone to enjoy.

Autumn Splendor Fall Layout

Good morning crafty friends! Today I am sharing a project I created for the Pazzles Design Team. This layout features pretty patterned paper from the DCWV Autumn Melody Stack as well as some beautiful files from the Pazzles Craft Room. I used several files from the Craft Room Library: Autumn Harvest Sunflower, Monarch Butterfly and Butterfly 001. I created the lattice frame in my Inspiration Studio Pro software.

Candy Corn Mini Album

This Candy Corn Mini Album has been on my mind ever since I did the Watermelon Mini Album.  I have always said the watermelon could easily become a  candy corn.  So, I took that album and made some adjustments to create this fun little album.  Whether you want to use this for Halloween photos or just some fun fall photos, this will be the perfect fit for you.

Pen Tool Fall Acorn Card

Fall is such a beautiful season, with leaves changing color and the crisp, cool air. I created my card with thoughts of my years growing up in the northern part of the country. When deciding how to make my card, I knew I wanted to work with the new Pazzles Pen Tool. I visited Klo’s recent classroom video on how to work with the new pen tool and watched one of the archived sessions. It got me off the ground and running in no time flat.

Cut And Paste Sketches: Autumn ...

Scrapbook layout and card sketches are a great starting point for well designed, quick projects. Many sites offer sketch ideas, but they still involve measuring and hand cutting. I like to let my Inspiration do as much of the work as possible, so I often design my layouts and cards in the Inspiration Studio Software first and then cut them out.

Happy Fall Ya'll

Happy Fall Y’all Framed Sign

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love to decorate for fall and I love the colors of fall. I was born in the fall, so this quick project was right up my alley. I took several files from the Craft Room Library and combined them to make this cute picture home decor piece for any room. I’m putting mine in the guestroom. The files I used were the Cowgirl Hat, Cowgirl Boots, Pumpkin and Autumn Harvest Wheat Bundle. I didn’t change any of the files except for the cowgirl hat, which I welded the two black pieces into one and added a slit for the pumpkin. I did omit the stem on the pumpkin, resized all the files to fit my 8' x 10' frame and added this adorable stamped face. I used two different fonts for the saying. I layered cardstock and patterned paper and then glued all the parts onto the top layer. Add it to an 8" x 10" frame and it's done.

On Trend: Chalkboard Art Tutorial

I'll admit I tend to jump on the bandwagon pretty easily when it comes to trends. I've had a shaped photos phase, and an eyelet phase, and a chevron phase and now I've moved on to the chalkboard art trend. It began making an appearance in advertisements and on websites and has now made it's way into the scrapbooking world and home décor. Many of the latest released scrapbook collections have elements of this trend. My Mind's Eye Chalk Studio and Simple Stories December Documented come to mind. Die Cuts With A View has a Chalkboard Paper Stack and Canvas Corp sells sheets of Chalkstock.

Fall Thank You Card

I love fall weather and all the beautiful colors. The colors of fall have inspired me to make some thank you cards.

Nuts About You Fall Card

I'm a little nuts about cute critters and when I spotted this Woodland Squirrel in the Craft Room Library I knew he needed a little time in the spotlight. He is the focus of this quick card, and he looks rather pleased with himself.

Smores Kit and a Lawn ...

The calendar says fall is on it's way in the United States, but the sun is still shining here in Kuna, ID as we are set to reach 93 degrees today. It's the perfect time to fit in one last camping trip. You probably won't find creatures as adorable as these Lawn Fawn characters in the real woods, so make up a s'mores kit and a tree shaped treat container and take these sweet creatures with you.

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.
