Paper Crafting Projects


World Card Making Day with Pazzles and new Pion Design paper line

This past Saturday was World Card Making Day.  Pazzles provided the Design Team with a sketch and this card is what I made with the sketch.  The post can be found on the Pazzles blog here.  The card along with the beautiful border and flourish for the card are Pazzles cutting files.  I now have a new Pazzles Inspiration and I’m having a great time breaking it in!  What a great investment this has been for me.  The capabilities of this machine are amazing!  I never realized how much I depended on it for my crafting until I was without it.  

The beautiful paper that I used for the card is from Pion Design’s new collection “Sweet Baby.”  I love the soft pastel designs of this collection.  It will be available in my shop soon!

Baby Boy Shower Card with Cutting File and Cutting Template

This may be my all-time favorite card style as I love the pocket and tag feature inside.  I used Pion Design papers and the beautiful corners inside the card were made with a Nellie Snellen die.  

You can download this card’s WPC cutting file here.  The manual cutting template for the card’s interior pocket can be downloaded here.  Black lines are cut lines and blue lines are score lines.  Make the base card by cutting your cardstock to 12″ x 5″ and then score it in the middle.  The pocket goes inside the card on the right side as shown below.

Welcome Baby Girl

I made these cards some time back, but realized I had never posted them.  The Pion Design vintage images are so great to use with cards!  Inspiration for this card came from here.
