Now, on to some more Ruler Studio inspiration!

Hey there We R fans, it’s Aly Dosdall here with you today sharing a fabulous way to get your photos out and on display in your home for you and your loved ones to enjoy. The new Ruler Studio is such a fun and versatile DIY project! You can create so many different things with it, but what really drew me in when I first saw it was what a fabulous photo display it can be.

Ruler Studio Monogram Photo Display by Aly Dosdall

I’m a scrapbooker at heart, and have plenty of albums on the shelves in my craft room. But I also truly believe it is so important to have some of your favorite photos printed and out on display in your home for you and your loved ones to see everyday. The Ruler Studio is a unique and stylish way to do just that! I have a small shelf in my craft room that I love to redecorate every few months, and it’s the perfect place for this project.

I shaped my Mint color 9 inch folding ruler into an “A” monogram for Aly. Since the shelf my ruler monogram sits on is right above my scrapbook paper wall border which is bright and colorful, I kept my project fairly simple to not compete with it. I printed three photos of our family from a recent vacation and added them to some of the kraft color Picture Frames. Then I used the Natural String and Picture Clips to hang them on my monogram.

I used the Natural String and DIY Party Pom Pom Makers to make some poms to hang on my monogram. I love the organic texture they add!

One of my favorite things about the Ruler Studio is that you can easily change it up whenever you want. You can fold the rulers into a different shape, change out your photos in the Picture Clips, add a light strand, or adhere cards and ephemera to the rulers with the foam dots. In a few months I’ll be ready to repurpose this project into something new!

Ruler Studio Accessories Star

Hello, hello! Tessa Buys here with my first post for We R Memory Keepers. I have fallen head over heels for the Ruler Studio collection and I am excited to share with you a piece of fun and functional décor that I recently created for my daughter’s room:

Ruler Studio Accessories Star by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

 

As her collection of accessories grows, I have struggled to find a way to keep her go-to hair clips and play jewelry within reach. I found my solution in the 12 inch white ruler.

Ruler Studio Accessories Star by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

 

I shaped the ruler into a star (because, let’s be honest – baby girl is the star of the show around here) and used the glass knobs and hooks to create hangers for necklaces and bracelets.

It was easy to bend the ruler into the star (just bend every other hinge) and the foam tabs made it easy to secure the ends and overlapping parts in place. Hair clips secure themselves to the ruler and sunglasses tuck nicely over the ruler’s edge.

This arrangement is hanging over her changing table. Sometimes while I am doing her hair or changing her clothes, I need her to focus on something to stay still. Clipping a favorite photo of “Mommy! Me!” to the star has been a great way to grab her attention and decorate the ruler.

I already have plans for another piece of ruler décor for her room, I love this one so much! If you’re looking for a unique way to organize accessories, for a little one or even yourself, the ruler studio is a fabulous option! Thanks for stopping by today. Have a good one!

Ruler Studio Heart Frame

Hello!  Amanda Coleman here today.  I am beyond excited to be sharing my first project with you on the WRMK blog.  WRMK’s new products are fantastic and versatile.  If you aren’t excited already, you will be soon!

Ruler Studio Heart Frame by Amanda Coleman for We R Memory Keepers

The new Ruler Studio foldable rulers and accessories are positively irresistible.  I love that they are both fun and functional.  I sat at my desk a while ago and started playing around with the 6” natural ruler and experimented with the shapes I could make.  Eventually I ended up with a heart shape and I fell in love.  Quirky and whimsical, I thought this wooden ruler heart would make a fun frame.

Ruler Studio Heart Frame 5

Rather than leave the frame empty, I decided to back it with a piece of patterned paper.  This is an easy way to customize your frame for your space.  I used coordinating die cut frames and hung some photos to some natural string with the metal clips.  So easy.

Ruler Studio Heart Frame 6

This is the first photo frame in my home to be embellished with lights.  Now I want to put lights on all the things!   The Ruler Studio Bulb Strand is powered with batteries so you can put them anywhere in your house.

Ruler Studio Heart Frame 1

Folded into a heart shape, the 6” folded ruler fits perfectly over a 12”x12” piece of patterned paper.  After you have shaped your frame, adhere the ruler contact points to the paper with a strong adhesive.

Ruler Studio Heart Frame 3

Trim the excess paper with a craft knife.  The wide ruler is pretty forgiving so your cut lines don’t have to be perfect.

Ruler Studio Heart Frame 2

Experiment with the arrangement of embellishments, strings, lights and clips until you find the arrangement that suits you perfectly.

Ruler Studio Heart Frame 8

What would you put in a Ruler Studio frame? Happy Crafting!

 

Supplies:

Ruler Studio 6” Folded Ruler Natural

Ruler Studio Natural String
Honey I’m Home Love and Laugh 12”x12” patterned paper

My three rambunctious boys, darling little girl, and patient husband and I call Sacramento, California home.

Favorite We R tool or paper collection: I love my Crop-o-dile! No other scrapbooking tool has come in handy for so many non-scrapbooking tasks. Many a belt has been fixed for my growing boys or shrinking husband!
Favorite crafting tip: Since I’m planning my little one’s birthday party, this has been on my mind: You don’t have to make everything you pin. Try the gallon, quart, pint method. Choose something with a big impact to spend the majority of your time on, then something medium-sized for the next chunk of your time, and then spend what time you have left on small details. Your party will look great and you won’t be stressed out (as much).

I am married to my wonderful hubby of 16 years and we have 6 kids, ranging from 13-2.  I started scrapbooking shortly after my first child was born in 2002.  I am a SAHM and homeschooler so I tend to scrap during my kids rest time; it helps clear my mind and get me through the rest of the day.  I am all about family and who we are; that is why I scrapbook.  Every page I create is a canvas to tell our story, how the Lord has put us together and ordered our steps, and to take the time to really embrace the lesson the Lord is teaching us at that moment.  I am a scrapper that adores white space with lots of layers and meaningful elements.  I have been blessed to design for Bella Blvd, Simple Stories, Pebbles, Hip Kit Club, CREATE, and Anna Griffin.  I have been published in PaperCrafts & Scrapbooking, Scrapbook & Cards Today, Creating Keepsakes, Cards, Create, Scrapbook Trends, Scrap365, and various online publications.

I live on a Northeast Texas ranchette with my husband of 25 years and three children ages 22, 17 and 13. I work PRN as a Labor & Delivery Scrub Nurse.  I love all sorts of crafting: papercrafting, hand-lettering, home decor, knitting…I’ll give just about anything a try (although I failed miserably at tole painting!).  I also enjoy trying new recipes, perusing Pinterest, organizing, cleaning, singing and visiting with family and friends!  I have been a crafter for as long as I can remember and a papercrafter since 1997.  I have served on many manufacturer design teams over the years and teach at my local scrapbook store, as well as Big Picture Classes.
