Foil Pumpkin Ornaments with the Freestyle Pen

Hello We R friends, Laura here today. I have been busy decorating my house for fall. I always find fun craft blanks at the dollar store. I found some cute wooden pumpkin ornaments to decorate and thought they would be perfect to use with the Foil Quill Freestyle Pen.

Start by painting your wooden pumpkins. You could leave the wood grain depending on your design, but I thought painting them orange and green first would really make the foil stand out.

Allow them to dry thoroughly. This doesn’t take long if you are using acrylic paint.

For the first pumpkin, I freehanded lines on the pumpkin with orange foil.

Then, I used a Heatwave stencil to create a little green pumpkin vine and leaves. I found it was easiest to line up the stencil by cutting my foil to the size of the design I was tracing.

On the next pumpkin I wanted to add our name to the pumpkin. I don’t always love my handwriting, so I designed something on my computer and printed it out on regular copy paper.

I taped the copy paper in place on my pumpkin first to make sure I had everything lined up correctly. Then I carefully lifted the copy paper and placed my foil underneath. I taped it in place, so it didn’t move while I was writing.

I used both the bold and fine tip pens for the words. I used the bold Freestyle Foil Quill pen for the cursive and the fine tipped one for words THE and FAMILY.

To get good coverage with the pens when using a paper template, I found it was best to go slowly and to press firmly. I got good results using this method, but you could also print out your design using a thinner paper like tracing paper.

Tie ribbon to the top of the ornament to hang.

These fun ornaments look so cute with the rest of my fall décor at the house. You could also use this technique to make an adorable gift tag for a present.

How to Foil on 3D Projects with the Freestyle Pen

Autumn is already coming around here. I like to decorate our house for it.

Over the last few days I have foiled many objects with the Foil Quill Pen. And I created my first 3D project without paper. Yes really! Without paper. And I love it.

Foil on your Fall Decor with the Freestyle Pen by Steffi Ried for We R Memory Keepers

I really wanted to foil our autumn decor with the Freestyle Foil Quill Pen. So first I bought some pumpkins and painted them. The decoration should be bright and light. After I painted the pumpkin with white acrylic paint, I used the Freestyle Pen (Standard). A few hearts foiled with rose gold on it and it’s done! Totally simple. I was surprised how easy it works.

In autumn I like candles very much as decoration on the table. So I foiled some candles with the Free Style Pen.

At first, I tested on a few old candles. I found out that you should write quickly. Because the hot tip of the pen melts the wax. But with a little practice it is quite simple. First fix the foil with the Washi Tape to the candle. Then, draw your design with the pen.

Excess wax can easily be scraped off with scissors. This way the unattractive areas can be repaired.

Finally I foiled some leaves on acetate with the Freestyle Pen. Then I simply cut them out with scissors.

I decorated the vase with the foil leaves. I scattered the remaining leaves on the table. Maybe I’ll make a garland out of them. My daughter already has an plan.

October Journal Dashboard

Hello and happy Friday! Aly Dosdall back again. My crafting style is usually pretty clean and graphic, but recently I’ve decided to play around with some fun mixed media techniques and broaden my crafty horizons a bit. The new Impressed Stamping Daubers and Dauber Bottle were the perfect way to delve into some mixed media fun, and I used them to create my October journal dasboard. Check it out!

October TN Dashboard by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers 3

I include photos in my journal, so I really wanted to highlight these photos of the leaves starting to change in our yard as this is what the beginning of October represents where I live.

October TN Dashboard by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers 7

October TN Dashboard by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers 5

I used some simple and fun techniques with the stamping daubers to get this colorful look on my dashboard, and I’ll show you how!

I started by cutting out some fall leaf shapes from a scrap of vinyl with my Evolution. I used those as masks on my dashboard, and spread them around the layout in a visual triangle.

step out 1

Then I used the Standard tip Freestyle Pen and some copper Foil Quill foil to write my title. While my handwriting skills are lacking, I feel it’s important to include some of my handwriting in my journal since it’s a part of who I am!

step out 2

Next, I choose some of my favorite fall colors that coordinate with the colors in my photos. I used the daubers to apply the ink to the back of an acrylic stamping block. I filled the dauber bottle with water, and then daubed some water on the block next to the ink, being careful not to get ink on the dauber bottle. I used my stamping dauber to mix the two together to get a watercolor consistency from the ink.

step out 3

Then I applied the ink to my dashboard in horizontal strokes, using my stamping dauber as a brush. I paid extra attention to the fall leaf masks to make sure the ink surrounded the shapes competely.

step out 4

Once the ink dried, I used the Precision Press Pattern Stamps and Stamping Block to stamp in a white color over the ink to add some dimension and layers to the dashboard. Then I removed the vinyl masks, and look how cool it turned out!

step out 5

I added a copper foil outline inside the fall leaf shapes using the metal die I had cut the vinyl with as a template. I first placed the die over the leaf shape and used at piece of washi tape at the very top to secure the die. Then I lifted it up and slid the foil underneath. Then I traced around the inside of the die.

step out 6step out 7

I finished off my dashboard by adding a few embellishments and a tab to mark where October starts in my journal. The Staple Board made it easy to add the tab to my page.

step out 8

I love how my dashboard turned out! Mixed media is a step outside of my comfort zone, but with the Impressed Stamping Daubers is was fun and easy to create this colorful dashboard!

How to Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps

Hello!  It’s Rebecca with you today, taking on autumn-inspired packages and spotlighting some WRMK stamping tools, specifically the Mini Precision Press and the Mini Evolution Stamp, Die, and Emboss kit.  I have a tutorial for you for the stamping portion of the gifts, along with a couple of tips to make your projects sail along smoothly.

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory KeepersMake DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

My first tip: Read the directions!!  I know, it seems so simple, but I often jump right into a thing without giving the directions a second thought, especially if it’s something I think I already know how to do, like stamping.  If you’re working with either of the Precision Presses (Advanced or Mini) or the kit, it’s going to help you sort out all the products and use the presses correctly.  Also, there are helpful tips in the directions, like stamping your lighter colored images first and using the perfect paper size.

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

I’m starting with the Celebrate tag.  The components to create this pretty floral piece line up exactly with the pegs of the Mini Precision Press.  These stamps will also work with plain clear acrylic blocks or the large Precision Press; likewise, the Mini Precision Press is a great tool for any of your smaller stamps, not just these.

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

Align the stamps to the press first, then position your cardstock.  Tip: I recommend using a bit of washi tape to keep it in place.  Rub a good quality white eraser over your stamps to remove oils or lint and smooth the clear stamp surface to absorb the ink.  When you’re ready, ink up the stamp, and press to your cardstock.

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

You may get great coverage on your very first try, and you may not, which is why a stamping tool like the PP is nice to use.  This is also why it’s good to use the washi to keep the paper in place.  Stamp again if needed and then add the second part of the image–the leafy spray.

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory KeepersMake DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

If you’re using this kit, and these particular images, you can run your paper through the Mini Evolution with the die cutting/embossing folder.  It will create the tag you see here.  I also made a tag from some DCWV patterned paper that I’ll use for my gift wrap.

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

The above stamps were coordinated and placed just-so, but what if you want to make your own design?  That’s just as simple with the PP.  On a different tag, I decided to use some of the other stamps in the kit.  I love to create my own backgrounds and it’s difficult to mess up if you’re using a stamp guide.  You’ll always know exactly where you’re stamping your images.

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

I taped my cardstock to the platform base again to keep it from moving since this design requires more placing/removing of the clear top piece.  Place your stamps face down on your paper in the position and area you want them, press the top piece down to grab them, and lift off.  When you put it back down with ink on the stamp, it will be right where you meant to stamp the image.

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

When I’m creating a design like this, I make sure to clean off my stamp between each round so I don’t get smudges on my paper.  It’s an extra step if you’re using the same stamp over and over, but you know you’ll get great results each time.  In the end, I have a pretty paper swatch, ready to be turned into a tag.  Tip: You can use a different ink each time you stamp an image for an extra colorful design!

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

After my tags were created, it was time to make the packaging, which I did with my trusty 1-2-3 Punch Board.  I chose an A7 size envelope box this time.  It’s as easy to make as an envelope, but there’s an extra scored line on each rotation and you end up with a box that’s 3/4″ deep.  (It’s a terrific way to package notecard sets!)

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

My papers are from DCWV Faded Floral paper stack.  The colors and patterns are gorgeous and I’m excited to dip back into my favorite color palette, the autumn-inspired navy blue, coral pink, ochre/burnt orange, and gray.

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

I tied some ribbon around each box, attached my stamped tags, as well as a coordinating patterned paper tag, and then embellished with yarn pom-poms.  Pom-poms on gift wrap is still a favorite of mine, and I made these with the Pom-Pom maker set.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressed Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced

Hello We R Fans! As the days turn colder, we are starting to have more time to devote to being crafty. Seems like a great time to add some new tools to your collection and to learn a new technique with a trusty We R Memory Keepers tool already in your stash.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To create this card, I started by inking a panel of card stock with the new Impressions Dauber set. This set of inking tools is fantastic! Each of the daubers has foam on the end, either in a circle or triangle shape, that is meant for inking. The daubers fit easily on your fingertip, or can be gripped.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Start by swirling your dauber into the ink color of your choosing. When you put your ink-loaded dauber down on paper, it will be very dark and intense. To help keep your ink more even on the paper, start by moving your dauber in a circular motion on a craft mat before applying it to the paper. I am using the American Crafts craft mat here. Continue to add ink and slowly build up your layers of color. Set the background aside to dry as it will need to be dry for the next steps.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

The We R Memory Keepers Precision Press is perfect for lining up stamps to create a shadow effect. On this card, I will create the shadow effect with a gold heat embossed image and a plain inked image.

  1. Place your card stock in the Precision Press, securing it into a corner with the magnets
  2. Set the stamp (uninked) down on your card stock where you want the sentiment to appear.
  3. Place the lid of the Precision Press over the top and then press down to pick up the stamp. This will ensure the stamp will be in the exact location after you apply ink to the image.
  4. Ink the image.
  5. Return the lid and stamp down. Push to get even pressure along the image.
  6. Heat set the image.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

  1. Clean and remove the stamp from the lid of the Precision Press.
  2. Return the stamp to the card stock, but instead of lining it up perfectly over the image, set it slightly below and to the right.
  3. Put the lid on again and pick up the stamp.
  4. Ink the image. Replace the lid. Push down.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

  1. When you remove the image because of the surface of the heat embossing, you will need to remove the ink from the surface. I used a cotton swab for a more precise removal.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Finish the card base off with floral images stamped in watermark ink. The Mini Precision Press, lid-only, is perfect for stamping images all over. Apply gold dust to the wet ink. Adhere the card stock to a card base.

I am fairly certain that I will be adding a shadow stamp to all my sentiments now! Will you give this a try?

How to Make a Planner Spread with the Foil Quill

Hello everybody ! Soraya here today to share a new tutorial using the amazing Foil Quill tools ! You will be able to create your own spread designs (tabs, titles, boxes and more!) to decorate your journal or planner. Let’s get started !

How to make a planner spread with the Foil Quill by Soraya Maes for We R Memory KeepersStep 1 : Prepare your cardstock 

As I wanted to go on a very new spread, I decided to use one of the Foil Quill neutrals smooth papers. I cut 2 parts of 13x22cm then placed them on my Silhouette cutting mat.

How to make a planner spread with the Foil Quill by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers 

Step 2 : Place the foil 

I used the new Foil Cutting Kit in order to trim the golden foil. This magnetic mat and this circular cutter are truly making a difference by making it easier! The washi tape is now placed all around the foil.

Here’s a tip for you : save the Foil leftovers for your Freestyle Pen crafts!

Step 3 : Create the designs

To create the look of my journal spread, I used some designs in the USB drive of Kelly Creates and Paige Taylor Evans. Those drives are simply awesome : so many designs and words to play with!

How to make a planner spread with the Foil Quill by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

So first of all, on my Silhouette Studio, I reproduced the pages so I could easily see where the designs have to be placed. Then I added some tabs and boxes using the drawing options. I placed the title on top and added some flower designs in each box. Before sending it to the cutting machine, I deleted the lines I created for the pages at first.

Now that my designs are set up, let’s launch the Foil process! For my Silhouette I picked the “A” adapter then plugged it in to a battery pack.

Once everything is ready, it’s time to jump into the most exciting moment: the Foil Quill magic!

We’re almost done with our journal spread! Punch the holes according to your binder or planner sizes with the Crop-A-Dile. Now take some time to add colors and fun to the Foil designs with watercolors. See how the Foil is resisting and showcasing the happy colors.

How to Make a Baby Scrapbook Page with the Foil Quill

Hello everyone! It’s Eva on the blog today, sharing a fun and easy baby layout using my Foil Quill Pen.

Baby Scrapbook Page by Eva Pizarro featuring the Foil Quill by We R Memory Keepers

The Foil Quill is perfect to create backgrounds for your layouts and add small accents! You can also use the USB drives to foil hundreds of images.

For this layout, I used the Holiday drive and chose this cute cloud that I thought coordinated perfectly with the designs from the Peek-a-boo You line from Pebbles.

Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 2

On my Silhouette Studio Software, I ungrouped the elements and erased the raindrops. Next, I hit the “Release Compound Path” button to erase a few faces from the clouds.

Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 3Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 4

Using the Emboss/Deboss menu,  I created a few patterns to fill my clouds. Simply select the image you want and then the pattern. I choose the line and modified the spacing and angle. Remember to hit the “Release Emboss” otherwise you are not going to be able to sketch it.

Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 5Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 6

Next, I wrote a sentiment with the Alpha Tool and weld the letters together. I also filled these letters with a pattern, but this time, I used the concentric pattern and adjust the spacing to 0,5.

Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 8Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 9Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 10

I wanted to cut my phrase so I added a cut line with the “Offset” tool. I did this with some clouds also.

Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 11

Now it is time to Foil and Cut! If you are just foiling I recommend you use the magnetic mat, it is amazing! I wanted to Foil and Cut so I used my regular mat and secure the foil with the Foil Quill Tape.

When you hit the send button all your images are going to be red, that means that all the lines are going to be cut or sketched by the machine. If you have a machine with two tools you can select all the foil lines with Tool 1 and all the cut lines (the phrase and clouds borders) with Tool 2.

I have a machine with just one tool so I selected the cut lines and hit “No Sketch”. I sent everything to my machine, removed the foil (without unloading the mat) and then selected those 4 border lines and cut them.

Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 12Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 13

To foil my images I used the 12×12 Foil Sheets in gold and the medium tip. The results were beautiful! Even on textured paper the foil transferred perfectly.

Baby Scrapbook Page by Eva Pizarro featuring the Foil Quill by We R Memory Keepers

The foil looks gorgeous when you move the page and I love that with one design you can achieve different looks!

My title also came out great, remember to adjust the spacing of the filling pattern so you don’t have any gaps in the middle!

The Foil Quill is definitely a game changer! Simple, fast and gorgeous results every time! What do you want to foil next?
