Hello Newsletter Subscribers,

I am extending this for one more week.  After this week, if you have not adhered to the next paragraph, you will no longer be able to receive this newsletter.

This is really important!  I need all of you to go to Yahoo Groups and search IzzaBoutChu.  You need to sign up if you want to continue to receive this newsletter. Otherwise, you will stop receiving it.  I wish that I could keep things the same way that they are right now, but my audience grew faster than I ever imagined and Yahoo is not cooperating with me sending mass emails.  They have assured me that this is possible if I send them out in the Groups section.  I hope that they are right about that.  So, please do this before next week.  As of next week, I will only be sending out these newsletters via the Izzaboutchu Group on Yahoo.  If you have trouble finding it, let me know and I will try to help.  Some of you have already done this…thank you for that.

This week was about school supplies.  Here in Florida, we had a tax-free weekend and mostly what you saw when you walked into local stores were school supplies.  I thought, wow, I’ll bet my subscribers could use these types of files…and I got to work! J

My Life TAB:  I wrote about how insecure we can become.  We can become so insecure with our abilities that we (ME!) can become easily offended…and appear to be victims when in fact we are really bullies.  The question that I posed was this:   Can “victims” create bullies?  I believe that is possible to do.  How many times has a child said “I didn’t do it on purpose…He/She made me!!!”  It was the unsuspected sibling who irked the child to do what they did.  I remember those days….you know the ones where you threaten to pull the car over so that they could walk?!  Though we never actually did it….our parents said it to us….we said it to them…and they will probably say it to their kids!  We are such creatures of habit and observation.

If  you have prayer requests, please send them to this address: IzzaBoutChuToo@yahoo.com 

In the subject area, type PRAYER REQUEST.  Do not send last names.  Only first names and brief descriptions of the situation.  God knows what is going on! :-)  I will add them to my prayer list!  I also ask that if the prayer is answered that you let me know so that we can give Him Praise!

CHAT ABOUT PAZZLES:  Come on people…chat away here.  You all belong to groups.  Schedule an appointment with one another to meet here and chat away.  Enjoy some long distance time together.  Again…it doesn’t have to be about Pazzles like it was originally set up to be.  If you are having issues with something regarding cutting, get together to resolve it.  The only thing that I ask is to keep it clean and non-hostile towards one another or towards companies.  Just use common sense.

ORDERS for WPC , PDF, SVG, and MTC files:  This feature is for those of you who need a special file.  I charge for these kinds of files.  The price would be determined by the complexity of the file. 

Also, from here on in, I am listing all free files as pdf and wpc.  If you want an svg or mtc, let me know....but I will be charging $1/file.  Most programs accept pdfs.  If I list all file formats on my website, it takes way too long and takes away from the quantity and quality of the designs that I want to post in the future.  This will encourage you to learn how to import pdf if you don't already know how.  One person said that she didn't know how to use pdf for svg.....well....I made a tutorial on how to do this and it is listed on the site under VIDEOS.

Videos:  I have posted a lot of videos this week since I finally have a microphone that works.  Sorry that they are only for Pazzle Inspiration users…but that is the program that I use and am sharing.  However…..there are a few files connected to the videos that EVERYONE can use.

How to make fancier buttons:  This video shows you how to use your rotate  and mirror tools to make fancier buttons.

How to use your pen tool, rectangle tool, and circle tool.  There is a doodle file there that is meant to be used with your pen tool.

How to make edges lace using Capital Letters!  It is so easy to do. That is how I first learned to make lace. 

How to fix files that give you problems!  I found out that I have some files that need to be better cleaned….and instead of just doing them myself…I want you to know how to fix them…especially if you are new at this!

Gallery:  I changed the GALLERY CHALLENGE to just GALLERY in case any of you wanted to post your projects.  Just send a picture and details to izzaboutchutoo@yahoo.com

If you have used any files that I have posted here, please send in a photo and the steps that you used for your creations.  That way, people can see how to use some of these files…especially if you used it differently that what it might have been intended.  I love seeing how other people see things differently.  Please share!

These are the FREE files that I added last week:

This Week's Featured Files:  Animals  :

Critters & Things  Nothing new this week.


Cards & Envelopes:  lace edged card, Peace Booklet, Mad Hatter Invitation, and Best Wishes Pop-Up card.  The pop up one is very fragile. I made it for someone in the Craft Room.  Look for a couple of Get Well webs next week.

Lace & Corners:  “D” edged lace.  Pazzle Inspiration owners, be sure to check out the tutorial on how to make this and other edges in the video section!


Paper and files:  ****new section****  This is a new section that I am experimenting with.  Depending on your response will determine as to whether I will make more of these in the future.  Even if you don’t like the design for this week, if you have the means, I would appreciate hearing from you as to whether or not you were able to download it properly or not.  What I am attempting to do here is to make paper and embellishments to match.  You would have to print out the paper.  If you do not have a wide format printer, the pdf is in an 8X8 format that could be printed on a regular printer.  This week has a Parisian Flair to it.  There is an emblem file on emblem paper.  There will be an emblem printed on the paper…and then you can layer the cut file over it to get a layered shadow effect.  There is also a poodle on the accompanying page….oh yea…some edged lace too! Ooh-la-la!

Mats & Overlays:  Nothing new this week.


People:  A watch and a dress form with dress on it…and a new lady walking

 Teachers…email me at izzaboutchutoo@yahoo.com to tell me what you are looking for.  If I have it, I can share it….or perhaps design something for you. 

If you have any ideas for files, please let me know!  I love to design and your suggestions let me know that I am not doing this in vain.  If you have an idea, just send an email with IDEA in the subject area.
Please send ALL correspondence to the IzzaBoutChuToo@yahoo  email address.  My Opal777 email address is a personal one.  I have an elderly mother who ails from time to time...and I need that one kept open for personal communication.  Thank you for understanding in advance.  :-)

HAPPY SCRAPPING!!  See you next week!
