Oh my goodness, these Ninja Turtles bring back memories!  My eldest son many years ago, lived and breathed everything Ninja Turtles.  Guess what?  I have just been to do my weekly supermarket shop and there must be a revival, as there are stacks of toys on the shelves featuring Ninja Turtles!

The Ninja Turtle bags are from the LD Kicks and Giggles Cut Bundle.  You can purchase the Turtle Power Cut It Project separately or buy the whole bundle, which includes 3 cutting sets for your cutting machines.

Decorated Glass Jar with Anchor

Home Décor Glass jar with shells

 Do your children love scouring the beach for beautiful shells when they visit the beach?

Home Decor shell collection glass jar

What do you do with all those shells?

For my Pazzles Design Team project this month, I thought I would take a simple glass jar and fill it with the pretty shells that my kids had spent many hours collecting rather than leave them in the garage collecting dust!  Of course, I had to decorate the jar using my Pazzles cutting machine!

Home Décor shell collection

I have used the Anchor and Life Saver cutting file from the Pazzles Craft Room Library.

Decorated glass jar with butterfly tag - Pazzles

Pazzles Butterfly Tag cutting file

Here is my latest Design Team project for Pazzles using the adorable Butterfly Tag.  I decided to have a go at decorating a jam jar for my newly decorated kitchen.  I looked up some tutorials and painted my Kilner jar.....ever so easy.  I then cut out this Butterfly Tag using my Pazzles Inspiration cutting machine which is available in the Pazzles Library as well as a ton of other cutting files available in svg & wpc file formats.


I used some of my pretty Graphic 45 papers and added some of my favourite embellishments.

Watercolor Card and Dandelions

How to create a watercolor effect with your Pazzles

As soon as I saw the Watercolor Stripes cutting file in the Pazzles Craft Room, I just knew that I wanted to make a simple card using it.  These cards seem to be really popular at the moment using colouring pens and stamps, but it is so quick and easy to create when you have a cutting machine!

Thousands of Images, svg, wpc, cutting files

I imported the Watercolor Stripes cutting file onto my visual mat using my Pazzles software.  I also wanted to used the dandelions cutting file which is also found in the Pazzles Craft Room available in wpc and svg file formats.


 I decided that I wanted to use softer colours as a background for my flowers. I selected the darkest pink and coloured the bottom stripe using my colour picker tool in the Colour Menu.  I then duplicated the colour to the next stripe and dragged down the slider for the fill colour to make it a touch paler.  I continued this method for all the stripes ending up with the palest pink at the top which gave more definition to my flowers.

Dandelions with watercolor background

I grouped all the Watercolor stripes and then placed the Dandelions on the top.  I did thicken the pen for the Dandelions, to give more definition.

Watercolor stipes using my Pazzles

I then resized the watercolor stripes and dandelions to fit in my card shape.  Image above shows what it looked like on my visual mat before I sent it to print.

How to change colors using color picker tool for watercolor background

I printed it out on my color printer from my Pazzles software, and then cut it out using my paper trimmer, around the rectangular shape. Of course if you didn't like the pink background you could always change the colours to your liking.

I love the look of this "in trend" card......do you think I have successfully achieved the watercolor look?

Baby Shower Invitation - Pazzles

Baby Shower, Invites, Occasions, Party

Here, is my Baby Shower Invitation that I have used for my latest Pazzles Design Team project.  

Baby-Week

Over in the Pazzles Craft Room it is BABY WEEK!.  
There will be some stunning baby themed projects from fellow Design Team members so, do pop over and have a peek (membership not required).

Print and Cut Invitation

I thought I would share with you how easy it is to print out your invitations rather than spend hours paper piecing all the elements, especially when you have a lot to make.

How to Print and Cut Invitiations in bulk

Here, is the inside of the invitation which I Print and Cut.  All the hard work is done in your software, making sure the wording is aligned and spaced out correctly.

Baby Shower Toppers for gift bags

I just couldn't resist making a little topper for the gift bag which I shrunk down.  Then, I just Print and Cut the cute little Onesie and added a mini clothes peg to attach it to the bag.

Onesie, Toppers, gifts

Finally, I added a little label to the milk bottle selecting the same colours and flower, matching it up with the Onesie.

If you have a Pazzles Inspiration, I urge you to become a member of the Pazzles Craft Room as there are a ton of videos to help you learn the software. There is an excellent video tutorial How To Use Cutting Files for Print and Cut which will give you step by step instructions and the confidence to have a go!

Cool Popsicles

Popsicle alphabets in svg file format

It seems an age since I posted on my blog........it's just too hot to craft here in the UK!  But, when I saw these colourful lollipops (popsicles) they just screamed out for me to add some lettering and make a simple sentiment!  This is a seriously quick card.........

Popsicle alpha svg set for your cutting machine

I imported the Peepsicles Alpha, Cut It Set (svg file format) into my Pazzles software.  I chose the ones that spelt out COOL and then just changed the colours using my colour picker tool!

So Cool, summer, hot

I then just typed out a quick sentiment using a font and created a cutting line for the top layer of my card for me to Print and Cut using textured cardstock.  I then made an outline and created my base card using pink cardstock.  I decided to create a soft corner to the card using the round corner tool in my software. 

Cool Popsicle svg alphabet

This is how I laid out the design on my visual mat before I Print & Cut.  If you use a Pazzles Inspiration cutting machine, you may wish to refer to the video tutorial in the Pazzles Craft Room (Using Cutting Files for Print and Cut projects).

Cool Popsicles

 Then, I added a bit of doodling around the card using a white pen.....simple.

Told you it was a quick Print and Cut project, COOL eh? (sorry about the pun!)
