My New Pazzles Came WHOOHOO! Move over Cricut E =D

WHOOHOO my new love has arrived!!! Meet
the Pazzle Inspiration =D

Check this out...holders for the whatcha ma call its =D The cutter blade holders

Pazzles had such an AMAZING deal right now!
if u go to you will see an ad "how to get ur Pazzles inspiration for 99.00" click on that...its 99.00 and then a 2 year contract for 19.95 a month to their craftroom which has TONS of free cut files...they add more weekly! This is a 600.00 machine =D

the software that comes with this machine does ALL the stuff SCAL does and way more =D  All the svgs and SCAL files can be converted for Pazzles using the free Inkscape program on-line and I can show u how that is done =D The Pazzles uses WPC files and all the paper piecings files u purchase like the ones at Little Scraps of Heaven come with WPC files. When you first install your Pazzle Insiration cd and you run into problems....then try installing the latest adobe reader...on the pop up screen for this software it will have an option to download the latest adobe reader...once i did installed just fine...I ran into problems with this at first=D

Here is how I found out how to convert your svg files to WPC for Pazzle:

  YAY!!!! Found an easy way to convert all your svg files to use on the Pazzle will need to download an older version of the free software Inkscape 45.1 and you can download that version right   HERE

hen you will want to open this Inkscape program go to "file" then "import" select your svg from your file folder....then go to "file" then "save as" then put dxf.... then open your Pazzle software and open the dxf file and then save as "wpc" whalla!!!! You HAVE to use this older version of Inkscape because the newer version does not save dxf files very well to import

Its a cool thing too that the cutting mats for Pazzle is EXACTLY the same as the Cricut so I can use my newly purchased mat refills that I got for my cricut.

one small downside was that  I found out that the Pazzles software is not a pro version with some of the cool tools =/ if you want the unlimited saves, the rhinestone feature, lattice maker, etc you will need to purchase the Inspiration 
Pro 2010 software for 99.00 sniff sniff
However, it does have tools to draw, distress, pierce, engrave, and emboss which is really COOL!!!!


  1. Hooray for you! Hope you have fun playing with it :)
