Winter


Frosty Window Card

Have you ever walked by a home on a frosty evening and caught a glimpse through the window? The Christmas tree sparkles with lights; maybe there are candles on the sill and a wreath hanging in the window. This simple card evokes that same cozy feeling for me. Christmas is the season of giving and for those of us who craft, our thoughts often turn to making cards. What better way to express our personality and individuality than in a custom made Christmas card. The truth be known, for many of us, Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without handmade cards.


Warm Thoughts Pocket Card

This Warm Thoughts card has a clever pocket for a packet of hot cocoa or apple cider mix. It’s the perfect antidote for the winter blahs.


Winter Branch

I have a feeling that most of our Pazzles friends are out shopping on this day-after-Thanksgiving. I personally avoid shopping on Black Friday and decorate my house for Christmas instead. I thought it would be fun to have a little treat for all of you faithful 'Pazzle People' who visit the website on what would otherwise be a very slow day.



Make it a Better Fit

How often do we think that about so many things in our lives? Why can’t they make these jeans a better fit? Why is it that these sheets aren’t just a little longer? I like that color but I think it would be a better fit if it were just a little darker/lighter. The title looks nice but it would fit better on the page if it was curved instead of straight. I think we all have had times in our creative process where we wish the word or title had more character. We want it to curve up or down, we want it to fit on top of the heart, we wish we could put the word inside of the butterfly. You all know what I mean!


Make Your Own Gift Boxes

Make Your Own Gift Boxes ...

Every Christmas for the last several years, my daughters and I make Stroopwafels as presents for friends and family. These tasty Dutch goodies are usually packaged up in little plastic gift bags. This year I thought it would be fun to make special little boxes to put them in. I have often wished that I was a better “paper engineer” but alas, I am not. I am, however, a person obsessed. I cannot look at anything without wondering if it can be cut on my cutter or translated into a new design. Christmas is the perfect time of year to find all kinds of fun shaped packages. A walk through any store will usually result in finding at least one or two gift box ideas. Often the boxes hold candy. After you finish eating the contents you can dismantle the box and use it for a pattern.


12 Tags of Christmas

Those of us here at Pazzles often wish we could let each of you know just how much we appreciate you! Through the years we have made so many wonderful friends. Some we have only spoken to on the phone, others are email or forum friends and many of you we have met at shows. We certainly are convinced that you are a very talented and lovely group of ladies. The 12 tags of Christmas is a gift from Pazzles to you, our very special customers.
