Lunchbox Animal Treats

Being a little kid is so magical. Everything is so exciting and every day is the best day ever. Even the smallest things make a little one so happy and it's so fun to be the cause of so much happiness and excitement. So join in on the fun and make up a batch of applesauce animals. Stick these in a sack lunch or deliver them to preschool on a platter and you are sure to get some great big gasps and lots of hugs of appreciation.

Crafting with Kids: Bookmarks

“Muuuummmm! I’m bored!” Is this something you’re hearing a lot at the moment with the children on summer break or on the weekends? A quick virtual trip to the Pazzles Craft Room Library could turn the nagging into some constructive, (and creative) time by cutting out some cute animal friends to turn into bookmarks. You could cut out a group of them and the children can do the assembly work and make some for their friends.

Gingerbread Christmas Mini Album

Gingerbread House Mini Album

It feels so strange to be adding frosting/snow capped roofs to projects in the July heat, but I have to admit it has been fun. It's got me dreaming of sweater weather and snow days while the sun beats down outside. This gingerbread mini album can become a yearly tradition for your family or the start of a new tradition for whoever you gift it to. Pick one holiday memory and document it year after year in this album. Maybe it's your annual gingerbread baking, or the neighborhood cookie swap. It would be so cute to include a picture of the kids with Santa every year so you can see how much they have changed. Whatever you decide to document, this album can be pulled out and enjoyed year after year.



Mini Album Calendar

Calendar Mini Album

Hello crafty friends, Melin here with you today to share my mini album. I was so thrilled to have a chance to create a mini album for this week's Christmas in July projects. I chose to go with a Calendar theme. This makes the perfect gift for special friends and or family. I started with the Scalloped Shaped Frame. I sized it to approximately 8.25 x 8.25. I cut the scallop in white. I cut out seven of them. I then cut the larger mat out in kraft cardstock. I cut out 14 of them and adhered them to both sides of the white scallop mats. I then chose several patterned papers from the DCWV Linen Closet. I love the beautiful soft teals, blues and greens. I created the little mini calendars and the labels for the months. I've included them below for you to download along with a notes journaling card. I printed them out and cut them with my Inspiration Vue.


Holiday Family Recipe Album

When the holidays roll around I start dreaming of all the good food coming my way. The women in my family all have their special recipes that they make holiday after holiday. I look forward to each and every one and I thought it would be a great gift to gather all of those recipes and make an album. I'll make one for every family in our extended family and my hope is they'll be passed on to the next generation. That way my grandkids won't miss out on my sister-in-laws pumpkin bread or my aunt's butter rolls.


Friends Word Book Album

I have always liked the look of Word Book albums, but I wanted to do one with a twist. So instead of just the letter all alone at the end, I put each letter in its own scalloped square to add a bit of fun. This can be a great gift for a special friend. Add photos and thoughts of your friendship together. I have included some different scalloped shapes for using with your Pen Tool to add quotes to. I have also included a few quotes that are fairly generic, but I encourage you to use quotes or journal to personalize it for you and your friends.

Firecracker Box

Firecracker Shelf Box

Both Heidi and I want to apologize that this project is being released the day before it's intended holiday. We had a miscommunication, but it's such a cool box I didn't want to skip over it. The shape can be adapted to so many things and it has many other uses besides holding firecrackers. So please forgive us and enjoy this awesome box! ~Michelle I think outside of Christmas, the 4th of July is my favorite holiday. We always have a huge 4th of July celebration and cookout in our neighborhood and it is typically held at my house. It’s so much fun having everyone over and we have made some amazing memories. One of my favorite things to do is to pull out pictures from past years and see how much all the neighborhood kids have grown.

Let’s Get Away Beach Card

It seems like the first half of the summer break goes slowly and the last half is over in just a blink of an eye. After the 4th of July celebrations, come most of the birthdays in my family and my wedding anniversary. The month flies by and then it's time to get ready for back to school. I really need a vacation somewhere in there, so I made my husband this wedding anniversary card. Do you think this will be a clear enough hint for him that we need a vacation? I'm hoping he sees through the cuteness of the card to the real meaning behind it! And if not, I'll take matters into my own hands.


2nd Quarter Challenge Winner

Making Rosettes and Swags

This rosette tutorial was posted several years ago in the Craft Room and although it's an oldie, it's a goodie. These rosette fans are super popular right now and make great affordable 4th of July decorations. Watch the video, then grab the cutting files and make up a bunch of your own. ~Michelle Lately I have been spending a lot of time looking in Scrapbook magazines, stores, online shops and company catalogs. Everywhere I turn I see rosettes and it isn’t hard to know why. They just “feel” happy! You can buy them premade, invest in a pricey die with only one size option OR….of course, you can use your fabulous Inspiration to cut them in a multitude of colors, shapes and sizes. I’ll let you decide which sounds more economical, more versatile and more individualized.


Stained Glass Window Cutting Collectin

Stained Glass Window Cutting Collection: ...

A stained glass window is such an amazing piece of artwork. If you've spent some time in a church with fabulous stained glass windows, you've likely had time to study it up close. They are beautiful from afar, but even more amazing close up, when you realize the work that has gone into it. Our Stained Glass Cutting Collection captures a bit of that awe inspiring work in a smaller format so you can make your own mini masterpieces. Cut one design from several colors of paper, then mix and match the pieces for a cool pieced look.
