Shaped Christmas Card Set

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with fun, festive, and handmade cards for the holidays! Everyone loves to make (and get) a handmade card in the mail, but during the holidays, our time is at a premium. Once again, We R Memory Keepers is bringing us a tool that saves time and makes us look good! The Circle Spin & Trim is a tool that makes creating circles of just about any size a snap! Smooth and easy to use, check out how I used it on these ornament cards.

Making these cards took so little time. And how cute are they? Not your everyday Christmas card, that is for sure!

The blades for the Circle Spin & Trim sit in the top of the tool. Love the on-board storage and the fact that there are two blades! To cut, one blade easily twists into the guides on the center of the tool. You can choose from so many different sizes!

After the blade is inserted, place your paper inside the Circle Spin & Trim. Firmly close the lid. See the piece that looks like a “Sorry” game board piece? It’s the handle. Simply turn the handle and it will cut your circle.

I cut out circles from green, red, aqua, and pink cardstock. Two for each card-for a front and back.

On one set of circles, I stamped and heat embossed the word joy. On the others, I added layers of stripes, created with white cardstock.

To make the ornament hanger, I trimmed silver glitter cardstock to size. (approximately 1” x 1”) I scored each piece of glitter cardstock in half, adhering one side to each piece of cardstock.

To have a place to “hang” the ornament from, I used my We R Memory Keepers Reinforcer Hole Punch. Punching the rings from the same silver glitter cardstock. Each ring was glued to the top, as shown.

On the inside of each card, I added another circle, one that was the next size smaller. Look at that perfect layering! Yay! The circle gave me a place to write some quick words.

After making these, I had so many more ideas! Wouldn’t it be cute to place a photo on the inside, above the writing? Oooh, and these would make adorable tags on Christmas gifts. Or just to use as ornaments themselves! What will you make with your Circle Spin & Trim?

Christmas Coptic Book

Hello everyone! It’s Eva Pizarro on the blog today bringing you a Christmas Coptic Book made with the Book Binding Guide.

Christmas Coptic Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Book Binding Guide

The Bookbinding Guide has everything you need to create Coptic, Japanese and Saddle bindings and create stunning Mini Books in minutes! I have been wanting to create a Coptic Book and I thought it would be fun to create one for Christmas and leave everything ready for the busiest days of the year.

To create the Christmas Coptic Book wrap chipboard covers with your favorite patterned papers, I am using the lovely Merry Days collection by Crate Paper that has wonderful vintage feeling.

Christmas Coptic Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Book Binding Guide

Cut several pages and group them 3 at a time. Once you fold them in half you will notice that the edges are not even. Use your Mini Magnetic Mat and your Craft Knife to cut the excess.

Christmas Coptic Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Book Binding GuideChristmas Coptic Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Book Binding Guide

Open the Book Binding Guide and place the pages on the left side of the tool. The tool has a natural inclination so you can place the pages in the middle and the holes will be perfectly aligned with the creasing line.  Use the needle to punch holes, I like to mark the holes I am using so I don’t get confused.

Christmas Coptic Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Book Binding GuideChristmas Coptic Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Book Binding Guide

Untwist the circles on the left side and put them on the right side of the tool. You will also need to flip the hole guide to use it on the covers because on other side the hole guide is completely flat.

Christmas Coptic Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Book Binding Guide

Use a coptic binding to keep everything together. You can search video tutorial but it is really easy and all you have to do is repeat the same steps over and over. To start, thread your curved needle with waxed thread. Make a little knot and go from the inside to the outside of the first group of papers.

Christmas Coptic Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Book Binding Guide

Tie the back cover by passing the needle from the outside to the inside of the cover and making a knot with the curved needle.

Christmas Coptic Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Book Binding GuideChristmas Coptic Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Book Binding Guide

Go inside the paper group from the same hole and exit trough the next hole.

Christmas Coptic Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Book Binding GuideChristmas Coptic Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Book Binding Guide

Repeat the same steps until the cover is completely attached to the first group of papers. Now, instead of going inside the papers from the same exit hole, add another group of papers and go inside the second group.

Christmas Coptic Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Book Binding Guide

The steps are absolutely the same here, the only difference will be that you’ll need to loop around the previous paper outer stitch before making that final move into the interior. This will help to hold everything together.

Christmas Coptic Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Book Binding Guide

On this step you can ad beads, little embellishments, chipboard shapes, sequins, etc. just make sure you tighten your thread after adding every embellishment.

Christmas Coptic Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Book Binding Guide

Once you have attached the front cover make a knot inside the last group of papers and cut the thread.

Christmas Coptic Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Book Binding Guide

Embellish your mini book with chipboard shapes, stickers and die cuts. Make sure you don’t add too many 3d embellishments otherwise you won’t be able to close the book!

Christmas Coptic Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Book Binding Guide

Another tip I have is that you don’t add too many embellishments to the binding because the stitching looks very nice!

Christmas Coptic Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Book Binding Guide

These books are really cute and I think they are perfect for this busy holiday season! Lots of pages to record the best month of the year! Now with the Book Binding Guide you can have everything you need to create them an easily align everything without the hassle of measuring and marking every page.

Holiday Themed Scrapbook Page

Hello, hello!  It’s Rebecca here today and I can’t believe how close we are to Christmas!  I know it’s still 6 weeks away, but that 6 weeks goes by so fast!  For me, so many things get lost in the holiday hustle, so this year I’m making more of an effort to not let that happen.  I don’t do too much in the way of scrapbooking, but every now and then, something extra special transpires, and I’ll want to remember it (and my feelings about it) forever.

Holiday Themed Scrapbook Page by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

Last December, I was buried in work and trying to meet deadlines and my kids were driving me crazy!  I think they were arguing, then wrestling, then arguing, then high-pitched screaming.  I finally separated them and told them to do something creative.  My then-7-year-old son took it upon himself to write a letter to Santa Claus and when he showed it to me later that night, my heart melted.  I held onto this letter all year and as the kids have been talking about starting their letters to Santa early this year, I pulled it out and decided this was just the sort of thing I wanted to remember.

Holiday Themed Scrapbook Page by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

I scanned the original letter into the computer and shrunk it down just a bit with photo editing software, then re-printed it.  I did this because I wanted to make it a little smaller to work with my 12×12 patterned paper, and because I had the idea that I wanted it to be sticking out of an envelope.

Holiday Themed Scrapbook Page by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

How awesome is it that I could make my own envelope, in the size I wanted to use, with my 1-2-3 Punch Board?!  I could have used a boring long white envelope, but this way, I also got to use the patterned paper I wanted.

Holiday Themed Scrapbook Page by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

I followed the easy directions to create an envelope that was 4” W x 8” L from some Crate Paper Fa La La paper.  After assembling the envelope, I made an extra fold to the bottom flap, simply folding the top portion over to create a lower, flattened opening rather than the taller, pointed version.  This also allows for the addition of some extra embellishments in that space.

Holiday Themed Scrapbook Page by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

I backed the letter copy with red cardstock and slid it into the envelope, tucking various die cuts into the front of the envelope for more color.

Holiday Themed Scrapbook Page by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

Texture and dimension are often a key design element in whatever I’m creating, and that was no different here.  I ruffled gold and white crepe papers along the sides of the back of my letter/envelope ensemble, as well as scraps of gold crepe along the top and bottom edges.  Then I adhered it all to the green buffalo check base paper.

Holiday Themed Scrapbook Page by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

There were a few more small touches to put in place before my layout was complete; I jotted down the journaling part so I could indeed remember this moment—and my first instinct really was to go out that night and get my son ‘a cute litl pup’!  (But we didn’t, and we still don’t have a dog so…)

Holiday Themed Scrapbook Page by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

Because this is a holiday layout, I thought it would be apropos to include a glittery ribbon bow and a tassel, both of which were easily made with We R Memory Keepers tools—the Bow and Tassel Looms, respectively.

Holiday Themed Scrapbook Page by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory KeepersHoliday Themed Scrapbook Page by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

Like I mentioned, I don’t do too much scrapbooking or memory keeping, but every time I do, I remember how fun and satisfying it is.  Just as I will get sentimental looking back at this page years from now, I’m sure my son will enjoy it, too…but I doubt it will make up for the fact that Santa did not bring him a puppy that Christmas!

Holiday Planner

Hey there, We R readers, Laura here today! I love binders, organizing, and planning. Writing everything out on paper gets it all out of my head and makes me feel like I have it all together. A few years ago, I created a regular sized 3-ring holiday binder. I leave it at home, but sometimes I need some of the information while I am out. I thought it would be fun to create a portable holiday planner I can take with me.

Holiday Planner by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I started by using a Heidi Swapp memory planner. I took out all the months except for November and December. I added the dates to the calendar, so I can keep track of all our holiday plans for these two months.

Then, I created some dividers out of heavy cardstock. I used the tab punch board to create tabs on each one. I used the planner punch board to punch the holes in the dividers. I love that I can use the planner punch board for all my planners that each have a different hole pattern on the side.

Holiday Planner by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I wanted the stability and weight of cardstock for the dividers, but plain cardstock can be kind of boring. I added some fun word art from the DCWV Christmas Stack. I adhered them using my tape runner and then added a little glitter tape for some sparkle. For the front page of the binder I also added the year with gold thickers.

Holiday Planner by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I trimmed some plain white copy paper to size and then used the planner punch board to punch holes in the pages. The All in One Journal Tool is perfect for creating lists in my planner. I created a gift list using the checkboxes and lines. It is thin enough, I can slip it in the pocket of the planner for on the go.

Holiday Planner by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I also created lined paper using the All in One Journal Tool and the gridded clipboard of the travel workspace to create some lined paper for my to do list.

Holiday Planner by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

For the gift section I thought it would be helpful to create a little pocket I could slip receipts into. I like to keep all my holiday receipts together, so I can track my budget, plus I have them in case of returns. I trimmed my paper to twice the width of a normal page in the planner. I used the trim and score board to score a line down the middle. I folded it in half, and then trimmed some of the excess paper along the top on the back to make it easier to slip the receipts in and out.

We R Memory Keepers Trim and Score Board

I used the hole reinforcer punch to create some coordinating hole reinforcements. This envelope will get more use than other pages, and this will help to keep it lasting all season long.

Holiday Planner by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Each section of the planner has a specific purpose. The front calendar section will help me keep track of our holiday plans. I can also add dates as I get them, so I don’t overbook our holiday.

Holiday Planner by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

The next section is for to dos and lists. I always think of things while I am out and this way, I can keep a running to do list in one convenient spot.

Holiday Planner by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I can add my gift lists to the next section, so I always have them with me when I am shopping.

Holiday Planner by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

The little envelope is perfect for storing receipts on the go. I love the little “Do not open until December 25th” card I found in the Christmas Stack.

Holiday Planner by Laura Silva for We R Memory KeepersHoliday Planner by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Lastly, I have a place to keep my holiday menu plans and grocery lists. I am going to make another little envelope like the one for the receipts to hold coupons at the front of this section.

Holiday Planner by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

To label the tabs, I simply wrote on each one with a metallic marker.

Holiday Planner by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I love that I can take this little planner with me. I can add to it all season long and it will be a helpful reference for next year to make planning for the holidays even easier!

Wire Wrapped Holiday Candles

Hello and Happy Friday! It’s Aly here again and I’ve got a cool hostess gift idea to share. I’ve seen some really cool wire crafts making their way around the interwebs and I love how wire can be incorporated into just about any project. I decided to make some holiday candles with my Wick Candle Maker, and throw some Happy Jig wire at them to see what happened.

Wire Wrapped Holiday Candles by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

 

The combination of handmade candles and wire designs make for a unique hostess gift set. I started by making some candles with my Wick and the new Silicone Molds. I added some delicious holiday scents, and went with traditional red and green colors for the candles.

Wire Wrapped Holiday Candles by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Important tips: 1) remind your recipient to remove the paper gift tag before lighting the candles; 2) The Wick Wire is not flammable but it does get hot near a flame, so use caution.

Once I finished the candles, I selected some holiday designs from the Happy Jig Instagram account (@werhappyjig) and used the free templates available there. I first chose the star design for my green diamond shaped candle, and I altered it slightly to look more like a holiday star. Here’s the template I ended up using.

Happy Jig Holiday Star

I left a lot of excess wire so I could wrap it around the candle. I used a household object in a cone shape (funnel) to wrap the wire around so I didn’t scratch and scuff up the candle in the process.

step out 2_wrap wire around cone shape

When I finished wrapping, I cut off the extra and gently slipped the formed wire spiral over the candle.

Next, I selected the reindeer head design for my red sphere candle. I made the reindeer head exactly as it is found on the @werhappyjig Instagram account, except I started and finished my wire down at the bottom of the design. Here’s the template I used:

Happy Jig Deer Head

Once I finished the reindeer head I wrapped the extra wire around a tennis ball (since it’s the same size as the sphere shaped candle) and trimmed it. Then I slipped it gently over my candle.

To finish off my candles, I added some gift tags that I cut out from the DCWV Red and White Christmas Premium Stack.

step out 4_gift tags

I used my Sticky Piercer to make a small hole in each tag, and then tied them onto the wire around the candles with some American Crafts Twine.

Thank You Cards with the Pocket Punch Board

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here today with a trio of thank you cards. This time of year always reminds us to put our focus on gratitude and sending thank you cards is such an amazing way to express that sentiment. Using the new We R Memory Keepers Pocket Punch Board helped me make several thank you cards quickly, check them out.

Thank You Cards featuring the Pocket Punch Board by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

The Pocket Punch Board is another wonderful addition to the punch board family! This tool allows you to make several different types of pockets. And of course, it comes with an amazing guide to create pockets in whatever dimension you need for your project!

Thank You Cards featuring the Pocket Punch Board by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

The reason I was pumped about the Pocket Punch Board was this patterned paper from Pebbles that I have been hoarding. The paper was full of gorgeous thank you tags and making pockets gave me the perfect way to use them on my cards!

Thank You Cards featuring the Pocket Punch Board by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Because of the tags I would be using, I chose the pocket design with the notch. The Pocket Punch Board is incredibly easy to use. With two cuts, three scores, and a punch, my pocket was done! On these cards, I made the 4” x 3.5” pockets.

Thank You Cards featuring the Pocket Punch Board by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

There is something about the notch at the top of these pockets that gets me! Maybe it’s the nostalgic feel of library card pockets? Whatever it is, I love the look!

All the tags on my cards were cut from patterned paper. I used my Cropadile to punch the holes in the tags and threaded thick twine through each one.

Thank You Cards featuring the Pocket Punch Board by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

On each pocket, I added another thank you phrase, because, can you ever say thank you enough? I also added some stickers. While these stickers were clear, I placed them on white cardstock and trimmed them out. This made them pop more and stand out better.

Gratitude Jar

Hello everyone! Welcome to the We R blog! It’s Eva Pizarro here today sharing how to turn a common mason jar into a Gratitude Jar with the help of your favorite We R tools.

Grateful Jar by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

Gratitude is a beautiful virtue and what better way to practice it than with a Gratitude Jar? You can use it with your family or to give to a friend during this holiday season. I decorated the jar and the lid and also hung a tag with a few papers for writing down things you’re grateful for.

Grateful Jar by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

To make the tag I cut some 2×3 plain copy paper and then used the Perforate blade on my Dial Trimmer to make them tearable.

Dial Trimmer by We R Memory Keepers

I stapled my paper together with The Staple Board set at “L” for large, and then glued this pad of paper to a tag.

Staple Board by We R Memory Keepers

The tag has a scallop border made with the Dial Trimmer and I used the Reinforce Hole Punch to decorate it.

Grateful Jar by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

The jar is just a common mason jar that has a Thickers phrase attached. I love these pink Thickers from The Heart of Home Collection by Pebbles. Aren’t they super cute?

Grateful Jar by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

Finally, to decorate the lid I used some papers from the same collection and a heart I made using my Heart Clear Cut Punch. You can punch anywhere on the page and align everything perfectly. I love these punches!

Have you ever made a Grateful Jar? You can start this year! Teach your kids that you can find a reason to be grateful everyday.

Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here today to share some of my Gratitude Journal spreads using the fabulous new Journal Studio tools!

The Travel Workspace is so handy and smart that you can use it at home too, place your tools in its pockets and place your inserts under the elastics! My opening page is made with hand lettering. I added some washi tape thanks to the Washi Tape Keychain which contains samples of my favorite We R washi tape!

The mini trimmer is so cute! And it has the ideal size to trim my photos and other small pieces of paper I need for my Gratitude Journal.

When it comes to writing down my journaling, I love using different types and styles. This is why I hand lettered the title “my family” and used the new Magnetic Stencils to write the numbers from 1 to 4. So easy and fun!

The 3 Way Corner Punch is also very useful to fit your paper on the journal pages and to avoid the corners of the paper going beyond the notebook.

For this new spread, I wanted to represent all the sides of my job I’m thankful for, so I drew a happy wheel using the Journal Guide. I could note everything in and out of the circle and add a color chart.

Let’s decorate the journal itself with the Happy Jig. I followed the instruction book to create the word “thank” and add “ful” at the end. I was able to place this beautiful word directly on the elastic of the cover. I love how it turned!
