Bridal Party Cutting Collection: WPC, ...

A graceful bride, a handsome groom, the giddy bridesmaid and the steady best man. Every good collection includes those key players and predictably, a cake, ring, church and doves. However, I wanted to depart from the traditional pieces just a little bit in this Bridal Party Collection. There are many other important people who need to be spotlighted, don’t you agree? What is a wedding without the cuteness of a tripping flower girl or the goofiness of a little ring bearer? Then there is the mama crying in the front row who has poured her life into the bride or groom and the stoic father who walks the bride down the aisle.

Pineapple Box

The pineapple is the national symbol of hospitality. It started way back in Columbus’s Day. He discovered the fruit and brought it back to the states, but farmers couldn’t figure out a way to make it grow outside its normal environment. The fruit quickly became an expensive commodity as it was not easy to ship without spoiling. Only honored and distinguished guests were gifted the extremely expensive whole pineapples and mostly by royalty. Even though today the pineapple is readily available, it still remains a symbol of welcome.

Celebrate/A Celebrar

It is a good idea to have a plenty of Birthday cards to celebrate these specials dates.  There are cards in several styles. Today I want to show a fancy birthday card.  For me a card of this type sounds elegant.  For the inspiration I searched in the best place for that, the Pazzles Craft Room; it is full of inspiration and files. I got interested in the Fun Fold 2 Cutting file collection.

It's so much fun to come up with fun designs to cut on the Pazzles Vue that could never be made without this amazing machine. Shaped cards are one of my favorite ways to show off the Pazzles Vue and this is a different take on that idea. These cards are shaped on just one edge. There are four designs to choose from. Each card has an inner piece with a bit of Pen Tool detailing.

Brick Wall Mixed Media

Pazzles Stencil Material: Brick Wall ...

Melinda here with you today. I am super excited to share my project with you today. This month I was tasked with creating a project that used the Pazzles Stencil Material. So here is what I came up with!  I created this wall hanging. I started by using the Pazzles Stencil Material . I was real excited when I got my hands on some. It is a much lighter weight than the typical stencil sheets you get at the craft and hobby stores. That means you can get a lot more creative with the type of cuts. I used the Brick Wall file. I created it in my Pazzles Software. Once I was happy with the look, I cut it out of the material. It cut like BUTTER!!! I used a semi-used mat and it had no trouble sticking down while it cut all the “bricks” out. Once I was done cutting the material, I turned to the internet and made some homemade gesso. I found a tutorial online.  I used the baking soda, paint and glue version. Once I mixed that up, I simply laid my stencil down on my canvas and spread the gesso all over. I really didn’t need any adhesive to hold the stencil down as I just carefully went over it with the gesso.


Shaped Journaling Spots Cutting Collection

Shaped Journaling Spots Cutting Collection: ...

After I make a really cute scrapbook page, I'm sometimes hesitant to add journaling because I'm afraid I will wreck the design, or make a mistake that messes up the whole page. This Shaped Journaling Spots Cutting Collection is my solution to this dilemma. These shaped journaling spots are cute enough to add to your design rather than take away from it, and they give you a small spot for recording the memories to go along with the photos. You can write your journaling before gluing it to the page so you can correct any mistakes before it's too late. If you hate your handwriting (like I do) then use the Pen Tool or the print & cut method for your journal spots.

Twinkling Flower Light Covers

I have been seeing people put very cute string lights on porches, outdoor spaces, game rooms and even kids rooms. It is something that is so fun and appealing that it made me realize it would be so fun to be able to create a cover for those lights. I created some shapes that include flowers, starbursts and covers. You can mix and match or use just one style for your entire string of lights. The fun thing with these is, they are very easy to change out, so you can change with the seasons or holidays if you want.

Make a holiday trivet with a dollar store trivet-Dollar Store Craft Idea

Fourth of July Trivet with ...

Are you looking for a kitchen décor item to help with the celebration of the Fourth of July? Pull out your vinyl and take note of how to assemble this easy project. For this project I will supply you with instructions on putting vinyl on a clear trivet that you can pick up at the Dollar Tree. This trivet is nice for putting those hot pans on in the kitchen. From the Pazzles Craft Room Library I used the July 4th Set file. I used the firework explosion cut file from this set. I used the cut path with line scissors to cut a line through the image.  Once the project was cut in half, I highlighted one section and using the up arrow key about 15 times created an opening for my name.


Layered Vinyl Project: Patriotic Mason ...

For this layered vinyl project I used the three layers of flag from the MK July 4th Set. I would recommend getting the Wall Vinyl Transfer Tape from the Pazzles Store to make placing your vinyl onto the Mason jar easier (due to the many stripes which are a little delicate), but the Pazzles Jewels Vinyl was forgiving and came unstuck when I needed to carefully reposition or remove bubbles (which I would recommend adjusting immediately because this amazing product is permanent and even dishwasher safe!) I adhered the red layer first, then the white, then the blue, using the cut out stars from the blue flag field as embellishments above and below the flag on the jar.
