Glass Paint Projects Flower Bookmark Card and Girl Silhouette Frame

Stained Glass Gifts using Pazzles ...

Recently, DecoArt contacted me and asked if I would like some product to use in our Pazzles Cruise classes. Naturally, I said, "Yes, please!" I looked at their catalog and chose some product. It was really hard! There was so much to choose from. Then I waited in anticipation for the samples to arrive. I had asked for glass stains and fabric paint among other items. I had a vision of what I hoped to do but was not sure if it would work. Soon the box arrived and after I unpacked my goodies, I was itching to get going on a project.


Beautiful Paper Bracelets Made From ...

I wanted to create gifts for a group of my closest friends. I knew that they would love something they could wear, and wanted my creation to fit each of their unique personalities. With that in mind, I created paper bracelets.


Split Letter Monogram Roman Style Letters Wedding Stationery Set

Split Letter Monogram, Roman Style ...

Today's Cutting Collection began with a suggestion from some of our customers. The Split Letter Monogram—Roman Style Cutting Collection is our elegant answer to your requests. This classic collection features each letter of the alphabet and is perfectly suited to vinyl and paper projects. We've used it here to create a trendy home décor project and a simple wedding invitation and thank you note set.



Chalkboard Message Frame

There are just a few days left until the New Year. Take a few moments to reflect on the ones you love, who have meant the most to you in 2012, and what kind of sentiments you can write down to let them know just how much you care. This is a great project that takes a simple photo frame (which I painted in a trendy green) and our chalkboard and wall vinyl to create the perfect message board.


Holiday Mugs

Easy Holiday Mugs with Vinyl

A dollar store mug and some vinyl can be transformed into a unique and personalized gift. Fill these mugs with hot chocolate mix or homemade fudge and they would make great teacher or co-worker gifts.


Vinyl Christmas Tree Advent Calendar

Christmas Tree Advent Calendar

Thanksgiving is still a week away, but today we put up our Christmas Tree at the Pazzles Office. It's the perfect kind of tree, no falling needles and no need to water it, because it's a vinyl wall tree! We are thrilled to introduce you to our Christmas Tree Advent Calendar. It may seem a little early for a Christmas Tree, but we wanted you to have plenty of time to get this project completed before December 1st. This advent calendar is the perfect project for a weekend of crafting.



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.


Quick and Easy “Boo” Banner ...

This started off as a quick 15 minute project but in true Pazzles fashion, it turned out to be much more! We loved these pre-cut canvas shapes from Canvas Corp and knew just what to make with them. We started the project by creating candy corn pieces using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and a vinyl masking stencil cut with the Pazzles Inspiration.


Heart Stencil Page

Stencil Heart Layout

Plastic spray stencils are everywhere. They come in basic shapes and trendy patterns, like chevrons and hexagons. And as cool and trendy as some of them are, I always put them back on the shelf, thinking, "why buy it, when I can cut it with my Pazzles Inspiration?" Time to put that idea to work!



Planner Calendar

Can you believe it is already July?! It seems just like yesterday I was planning all our summer events and BBQ’s in preparation for our busy summer. If you want to help keep life organized for you and your family, creating this project will be a must this summer. I found this frame on a discount table at Kmart about a year ago and never got around to printing a picture large enough to go on the inside. So, I thought using it for a white board or calendar is exactly what my teenage daughter and I needed.


Custom Easter Eggs with Vinyl Resist

Vinyl Easter Egg Stickers

Add a new twist to egg decorating this year by making vinyl stickers for the eggs that are a kind of mask that would prevent color from getting on the area of the egg underneath it.


Dr. Seuss Day

All over the country, kids are celebrating the Birthday of Dr. Seuss. We have been enjoying his books since I was a little girl- which is a REALLY long time ago! The first book I ever read was 'Green Eggs and Ham'. I also have fond memories of reading his silly rhyming books with our kids before bed. (Although, I have to admit that some of them didn't really settle the kids down to sleep!) My grandkids could dress up like Dr. Seuss characters for school today and I was, of course, thrilled when my daughter asked me to help with the costumes.



Cake Bon Bons in Fancy ...

I love making these sweet bon bon treats from cake. You may know them by another name: cake pops or cake truffles. They are absolutely divine tasting and can be made in so many different flavors. Use your Pazzles Pastry Tool to cut fun topper designs from fondant or sugar sheets. You can cut 2 or 3 dozen toppers at one time so you have spectacular results very quickly. I have made them so often that I have come up with a few tricks to make the job easier and faster.


Make You Own Stamps Autumn Thanks Card

Make Your Own Rubber Stamps

Fall is a beautiful time of year. The trees are turning colors, the air is crisp and special occasions abound. Now that the weather is cooler, you may find yourself in the mood to stay indoors and create. Thanksgiving and Christmas are not far away, providing you with ample reason to indulge yourself in your paper crafting passion. Making cards is a quick and simple way to feed your creative energy. You can make several cards in an afternoon and those who receive them always appreciate the time you took to make them. Why not make them truly unique by making your own rubber stamps?


Pastry Tools Teaser

I'm working late tonight trying to get everything ready for the Pastry Tools! We are so close to being ready I can almost taste it (haha get it? TASTE!). While I am waiting for some videos to render I thought I might give you a little teaser. So, here is another one of our cakes we made for the video tutorials that are included in the Pastry Starter Kit. There is SO MUCH information in these tutorials. I wish someone could have handed me these videos when I was first learning!



What will You do with ...

I absolutely love small town pride and all the hoopla that goes with it! Pazzles is located in a small town and this past weekend we celebrated our company and our home town. There was the BBQ and the farmers market, the craft booths and the barrel train ride, but best of all was the parade. It may be hokey and lack the glitz of the big city but small town parades are a lot of fun! Where else can a kid get a huge bag of candy in less than an hour? Where else can you get soaked by the little old ladies and their water hoses as you walk by? (Believe me, that is very welcome on a 90 degree day!)


Elegant Etching

Elegance does not need to be expensive. Your Inspiration can help you make beautiful etched glass accents for any summer occasion. These etched wine goblets, mirror, flat glass marbles and candle make elegant pieces for an outdoor wedding, wine tasting or birthday party. You can custom create any design you envision and convert plain, inexpensive glass into a look that any hostess can be proud of.


Innocence Scrapbook Page with Stencil Butterflies SQR

Cutting Pazzles Stencil Plastic

I have always loved the look of stenciled wood and walls. It has long been a standard in home décor. Did you know that you can stencil almost any surface? I have seen beautiful projects using stenciling on walls, windows, furniture, plaques, fabric and even plastic. I have also used stenciling in my card making and scrapbook pages. I used a stencil to create the background for this scrapbook page and also used it to stencil fill the wings on the main butterfly.



The Photo Cut Feature

Have you discovered the Photo Cut feature yet? Maybe you have stumbled across it in the Image menu and wondered what it was and how to use it. Often, when I mention Photo Cut, I get a puzzled look. It doesn’t take long for the puzzled look to turn into one of determination when that person begins to understand what it is. They become very determined to find a way to use it in their projects or home décor.



Sparkle and Shine Scrapbook Layout ...

What is Christmas without the sparkling lights, the glitter and the shine? Indeed, Christmas would not seem Christmas at all, if it no longer glistened. What better way to remember Christmas than to make that twinkle, a part of the memory. Now, is the perfect time to use glitter cardstock and rhinestones to add shine to your projects. Together they make your Christmas memories reflect the sparkle, just like you remembered it.



Harvest Spread

The way food is presented has a huge effect on how we perceive it to taste.It may all be in our heads but we simply cannot help that a wonderful looking spread makes us believe it is also a wonderful tasting spread. Well we may not be able to help you with the cooking part, for that you are on your own! But we can help you with making your harvest feast look amazing!


Creating Custom Rhinestone Text

A few months back when I was invited to a bridal shower, I went to the store not really knowing what I was going get. I had rhinestones on the brain because I had been spending weeks finding the best way to create rhinestones with the Inspiration. So when I saw an adorable t-shirt and short set on sale a light bulb went on.


Printable Window Cling on Glass Candle Holders

Printable Window Cling Autumn Leaves ...

Last week I shared how to add color and shading to Pazzles Window Cling to make decorations for Fall. I hope you were excited to try the easy method of using alcohol-based markers on the cling plastic. This week I wanted to give you some ideas of how to use the Printable Window Cling that is included in the kit.
