Pazzles Holly Jolly Hop

Pazzles-Holiday-Hop
Happy Saturday crafty friends,
Welcome to the Pazzles Holly Jolly Holiday Blog Hop. This is the second year our Design Team has done a fun Holiday Blog hop. It is such a pleasure to share all the fun things we can do with our cutters. The biggest news for Pazzles this year was the release of the Pazzles Inspiration Vue machine. It is very similar to the original Inspiration but with some fantastic improvements. For starters the machine has an optical eye for more accurate print and cut. The machine is also able to cut very small and accurate cuts. It is a fantastic machine and well worth every crafty cent spent. Pazzles also has a wonderful special to get you into the machine for only $99. Check it out HERE
Inspiration- Vue Print and Cut

So on to my hop project.

I made this super cute swing-flip card. 
I followed the instructions on one of the many FREE videos in the Pazzles library.   Klo takes you step by step through on how to make your own flip-swing card. One of the MAJOR benefits to owning the Pazzles is the amount of work and effort they put into helping you acclimate to your new machine. They are with you every step of the way. Unlike other companies that sell you a machine and then expect you to go searching for help on third party forums and groups, Pazzles has a representative that has spent hundreds of hours creating videos that show you how to get the very most out of your machine. I followed Klo’s wonderful instructions and was able to make my card without any problems.

I used the gingerbread girl file. It is a FREE file available from Pazzles. Pazzles has an amazing craft room with thousands of SVG files. So even if you don’t use the Pazzles cutter, you can still benefit from a Pazzles craft room subscription and download tons of svg files for which ever cutter you use.

Head over to the Pazzles craft room library and pick this cutie up in the free section…Available for a limited time only, so grab it while you can!

So now for my second project. I made this super quick and EASY card. I once again used the free gingerbread girl file and created a print n’ cut for the focal point. I then created a base from kraft cardstock and the patterned paper came from the Paper Studios All Seasons Three Paper Stack. The rest was cardstock. The pretty doily is a file that came from the Pazzles Craft Room. I did also use an EK punch for my bottom border.
