Get to Know Vicki

1. Why did you decide to get a Pazzles machine and why do you love it?
I bought my Pazzles inspiration after seeing Christine demonstrate what I was capable of doing in HSN many years ago. I am on my second machine after giving my first one to my daughter-in-law to use with my granddaughters. I love that I can design whatever I want. I just need a concept as a challenge and that’s it!

2. Do you have a go-to font?
I love the Ballerina Font and used it in one of the designs.

3. What is your favorite Pazzles technique?
I love my pen tools. I have two and switch out colors while one is being used by the machine with the second tool. I use it for pens, markers and glue pens. I have been experimenting with the pen tool and foiling as well as fabric markers and fabric.

4. Do you have a favorite Pazzles project someone else has made?
I don’t have a favorite project, because there are SO MANY! But, I do love Melin’s cute animals and kids and Tara’s Victorian creations.

5. What is your favorite non-Pazzles craft product?
I love my sewing/embroidery machine and my Cuttlebug. I can use Pazzles Craft Room files to digitize into embroidery designs, as well as patterns for sewing. I love using my Cuttlebug for embossing to add elegance to cards.

6. Do you have any hidden talents?
I can sing. God gave me my natural talent to write and create music…and then to sing His Praises. I can also sing and sign together. I love doing that.

7. Favorite ice cream flavor?
Mint chocolate chip…if I can only choose one!
