Wildflower Wedding Layout

Hello, friends! Tessa Buys here. Weddings are one of my favorite topics to scrapbook, and We R Memory Keeper’s Wildflower collection made this page of my sister’s wedding even more fun to create:

The Wildflower collection was a perfect fit for a photo filled with so many different flowers and colors. I was instantly drawn to the butterflies and decided to fussy-cut several as embellishments.

For some added glamour, I used a Clearly Posh acetate sheet with gold foil dots as my background. In order to attach the acetate sheet to the white cardstock base, as well as the butterflies to the page, I used the new Staple Board.

I loaded the small stapler with the copper-colored staples and began lining up the Staple Board with the center of each butterfly. With a little practice at lining everything up, it was a breeze to secure everything where I wanted it, no matter how far from the edge it was. I also placed some butterflies under the acetate to give the page a little depth.

Lastly, I added gold Thickers and some typed journaling to my photo.

From the gold foil to the beautiful butterflies, Clearly Posh and Wildflower made for a beautiful page! If you are putting together a wedding album, you can’t go wrong with such pretty products. And you must get the Staple Board! I can’t wait to use it again!

Fringe Hearts Wedding Decor

Hello, WRMK friends!  Shellye McDaniel here today with an easy-to-make wedding décor using the DIY Party Mini Heart Pinatas.

Shellye McDaniel-Wedding Decor1

With chalkboard art being all the rage, and because I love rustic/shabby chic styled weddings, I thought it would be fun to create a faux chalkboard to the front of ones of the hearts.

Shellye McDaniel-Wedding Decor2

I first traced the heart onto a piece of black cardstock by American Crafts and then cut the shape out.

Shellye McDaniel-Wedding Decor3

The cardstock heart was adhered to the front and initials were added using a white chalk marker from my stash.  To the sides, I cut 1.5” strips from the lightest Blossom DIY Party Fringe Tape, Black DIY Party Fringe Tape and Silver DIY Party Fringe Tape.  The pieces were layered slightly over each other until both sides of the heart were completely covered.

Shellye McDaniel-Wedding Decor4

For the two remaining hearts, I cut four 1.5” X 8” strips of black cardstock and attached them around the sides.  Before adding the fringe tape to the fronts of the hearts, I drew on a couple of lines so that I would be able to keep the tape as straight as possible.

The trio of hearts can be stacked together as shown above and used for a single display OR use them to fill with small gifts for the bridesmaids!

The hearts would make a sweet accent when greeting guests who sign in or add them individually or clustered as tabletop decorations…there are so many possibilities!

Wedding Gift Bags

Hello We R fans, and welcome to Wedding Week! With the beautiful warm weather here we know some of you are planning weddings this summer, or will be attending them. This week is all about wedding ideas, from gift wrap, to decor, to favor ideas and more. Get ready to pin some fun ideas to your wedding Pinterest board!

Hi! It’s Aly here today to share a decorative gift bag idea with you. These sweet little bags would work perfectly for smaller gifts, gift cards with treats, or favor bags for wedding guests. I used my Gift Bag Punch Board to make these, and then took them to the next level by punching the edges with my 2 Edge Punch.

Once I completed my gift bags, I added a ribbon closure, and some beautiful layered tags and ephemera pieces from the Wildflower collection. I love how the gold foil accents add some elegance to them.

Graduation Mini Album

Hello everyone, Wendy here today to share a mini book that I put together to document my daughter’s last few years of school.  High school is such an important time and so I wanted to make a book that would document those moments.  I included places to put pictures, add some thoughts, and keep memorabilia.

Graduation mini album by Wendy Antenucci

I began my book by creating a place to put each year’s school picture with the grade showcased in the frames from the Honey I’m Home collection.

Grad mini by Wendy Antenucci-1

To consolidate space, I created these pages on the one side of the coin envelopes which I included to manage those little pieces of life my daughter might want to save.

Grad mini by Wendy Antenucci-2

On the other side I created a file folder held shut with a fun paper clip from the Goodie Bag collection.  Here my daughter can add some journaling or tuck in other memorabilia.

Grad mini by Wendy Antenucci-3

I added in a decorative page to add some fun encouraging words on the one side.  On the facing page I wanted to add some graduation/celebration sparkle so I chose the Gold Dot Clearly Posh which I decided to add in a fun place to hold some small pictures.

Grad mini by Wendy Antenucci-4

Design Tip:  Did you know the Fuse will work on the Clearly Posh pieces?  I was super excited to find this out and fused some of the 2×2 waterfall pieces to the Gold Dot piece.

Grad mini by Wendy Antenucci-5

Here is a look at the pages opened up.  I kept each page a different length so that everything could be seen at once.

I hope my daughter has a great high school career and she will be able to look back at this book with fond memories.

It’s hard to believe this part of life is almost done, so Momma is also going to be treasuring each moment as we finish up our eldest school career and send her off to her dreams!

Graduation Party Favors

Hello WRMK fans!  Amanda here today.  Graduation party season is gearing up which means lots of celebrations with lots of friends and family.  WRMK makes it easy to send your guests home with a fun (and easy) homemade graduation party favor.

Graduation Party Favor by Amanda Coleman

Whether for a kindergarten, high school, or college graduation party, these mortar board graduation party favor boxes would make adorable gifts for party guests.  You can fill them with goodies and even use them as party décor.  Either way, they are bound to be a hit.

Graduation Party Favor 2

You can stick with a traditional black hat or customize the boxes to match the school colors.  The WRMK Gift Box Punch Board makes these boxes come together in a snap.  No more fussing with a die cutting machine.  Put your friends (or kids) to work and you’ll have a stack of party favor boxes in no time.

Graduation Party Favor 3

These little graduation tassels are so cute you may even want to hang them from your rear view mirror (or make a cute pair of earrings).  You can easily customize your party favor box by making tassels in the graduate’s school colors.

Graduation Party Favor 4

Each 2.5” square box is topped with a 4”x4” piece of paper cut from the same 12”x12” paper used to make the box.  You can adhere the top before you assemble the box or adhere it the top of the box after it is closed.

Graduation Party Favor 5

These graduation party favor boxes can be filled with all sorts of goodies, whether a yummy treat or a special graduation memento.   With the Gift Box Punch Board, you can make custom size boxes to suit your party favors or gifts.

Graduation Party Favor 6

It is easy to make tassels out of baker’s twine or yarn.  Be sure to check out Aly’s post on how to make tassels in HERE.

Graduation Party Favor 7

To make the mortar board hat top, punch a ¾” inch circle and adhere it to the top of a 4”x4” piece of paper with a foam dot.  Loop the tassel around the dot and hang it over the side of the hat.  Adhere the hat to the top of a box flap.

Graduation Card

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a graduation card that has sparkle, shine, and details to help wish the special graduates in your life all the best! I especially love how using We R Memory Keepers dies, embossing folders, and papers can create a customized look that shows thoughtfulness.

bright future Kimberly Crawford

I began by embossing a piece of black cardstock with the Next Level Embossing Folder ABC, 123. The numbers were the perfect touch for a graduation card. The Next Level Embossing Folders add amazing depth and texture to the card.

bright future 5 Kimberly Crawford

Once that was embossed, I used the Light Bulb Garland die to cut out a lightbulb shape from the front panel. Small pieces of washi tape were used to hold the die in the exact place I wanted while passing the card stock panel and die through the Evolution. I use that trick almost every time I die cut an image.

bright future 2 Kimberly Crawford

To customize the look of my card, I added red patterned paper (Flower Girl Rose Bud) behind the bulb. Our school colors are black and red, making this the perfect card to give our local grads. When making your cards, grab papers that will match the recipient’s school colors.

bright future 4 Kimberly Crawford

I cut the filament for the lightbulb from shiny gold cardstock, but cut the base of the bulb from the same patterned paper as the background, because of the next step of the card.

bright future 3 Kimberly Crawford

Once the layers were adhered to my card base, I added gold letters to spell out Bright Future. It seemed a fitting sentiment and the shiny gold added to the feeling of brightness. Before placing my letters on the card, I set them on the edge of a ruler, allowing me to see the spacing I needed to use.

How do you customize cards for the graduates in your life?

Alphabet Punch Board Graduation Banner

Hello We R friends! Aly here, and I’m so happy to be joining you today for Graduation Week! I just happen to have twin sons who are seniors graduating next month, so this topic has been on my mind a lot. For their special day I want to do something in their school colors, but not too decorative because that’s really not their style. I also want to incorporate photos because the memories of the last 18 years are just too precious not to. So, here’s what I came up with for a banner to celebrate their graduation day.

Alphabet Punch Board Graduation Banner by Aly Dosdall 1
I used my Alphabet Punch Board to cut out two of each letter and number so that the colored ones could act as a shadow behind the other, making it stand out a bit more.

Alphabet Punch Board Graduation Banner by Aly Dosdall 2

The front of each letter and number is a piece of gold foiled kraft cardstock from the convenient 3×5 Pad. I love that thing!

I added a photo of the boys in their tuxes just before the homecoming dance this year…

Alphabet Punch Board Graduation Banner by Aly Dosdall 3

…and one of them as 6 month old babies. That’s 18 years difference! So fun to see!

Alphabet Punch Board Graduation Banner by Aly Dosdall 4

I used gold glittered clothespins to attache the letters and numbers to long strands of black baker’s twine.

Had to add just a little sparkle, but not too much for my boys! =)

Kindergarten Graduation Layout

It’s hard to believe, but we’re nearing the end of another school year. Soon graduation ceremonies will be happening, parties planned, and gifts given. So, this week our team is sharing ideas for celebrating graduation. First off, is Laura with an adorable kindergarten graduation layout.

Hello, We R Memory Keepers fans! Laura here with a fun graduation scrapbook layout for you today. I used papers from the Honey I’m Home collection, a few little Clearly Posh elements, and my FUSE tool.

Graduation Layout by Laura Silva 1

I started by creating a base for my layout using the woodgrain Lights Out paper from the Honey I’m Home collection. I layered on the blue Family Ties paper square in the upper right corner. I added the Growing Up ruler paper along the left side and a small strip of the striped I’m Home paper just next to the rulers.

Graduation Layout by Laura Silva 2

I added the gold confetti dot clear paper from the Clearly Posh collection over one of the sayings from the Real Life paper. I used the double-sided sticky tape to adhere the clear paper onto the cardstock. I then layered that over a sheet of metallic gold cardstock.

Graduation Layout by Laura Silva 3

Then, I created a fun little clear pocket using the FUSE tool. I used one of the small waterfall sleeves and my FUSE ruler as a guide to create a flag shape. I added some metallic confetti and sealed the top. I trimmed the excess plastic off the sleeve.

Graduation Layout by Laura Silva 4

I attached the little confetti filled sleeve to the ‘Capture the Memories’ square at the bottom using the double-sided sticky tape.

For my son’s graduation picture, I matted it on white textured cardstock. I then layered that on the Here & Now paper. I added a gold star from my gold Thickers pack and a little strip of ruler from the sticker sheet.  I added washi tape from the Scotty Dog Washi dispenser and a leaf sticker from the Honey I’m Home collection to the bottom.

At the bottom I added gold Thickers to spell out KINDERGARTEN along with some little arrows to signify him moving on and graduating.

I attached the gold Celebrate the Memories embellishment I made next to his photo on the layout. I am so pleased with how his graduation layout turned out. It will be a great way to remember his special day when he moved on from kindergarten!

Mother’s Day Mini Album

An early Happy Mother’s Day, moms and grandmas!  I have a sweet little tribute album and journal using the “Flower Girl” Collection and several tools from WeR Memory Keepers to share with you today.

Shellye McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers--Mothers Day Mini Album

Shellye McDaniel-Mothers Day Album7

For the pages of the album I decided to use a couple of sizes of the envelope shape, so I grabbed the 1-2-3 Punch Board and a few of the patterned papers from the collection.

Shellye McDaniel-Mothers Day Album2

For the front and back covers, I selected the 7X7 card size and proceeded to cut, score and assemble per the instructions on the punch board.  Note:  I left the TOP flap unscored on all of the pages.

Shellye McDaniel-Mothers Day Album3

For the four inner pages, I selected the 6X6 card size.

Shellye McDaniel-Mothers Day Album4

Next, I used the Cinch Book Binding Tool and activated the 3, 6 and 9 levers (this will allow punches at these areas only).  All of the inner pages were punched at this setting.

Shellye McDaniel-Mothers Day Album5

Shellye McDaniel-Mothers Day Album6

Standard eyelets were placed in all of the punched holes and set with the Crop-A-Dile.

Moving on to the front/back covers, I went back and activated the levers 1-12 and punched the sides of the two envelopes.  The Gold 0.75” Cinch Wire was used to bind the front and back pages together.  I will show later on how I added the inner pages to the Cinch binding!

Shellye McDaniel-Mothers Day Album8

Three one inch rings from my stash were used to clip the inner pages onto the coil binding of the front and back pages.  When the album is lying flat, it flips easily for viewing!

Shellye McDaniel-Mothers Day Album9

Shellye McDaniel-Mothers Day Album9-1

To the pockets of the inner pages, I cut patterned paper to 5.5”W X 8.5”H for the two larger pockets and 4.5”W X 7.75”H for the four smaller pockets.  These are nice places to add journaling, extra photos or clip on different ephemera and keepsakes.  The pockets are also roomy enough to add extra tags or clippings to.

Shellye McDaniel-Mothers Day Album10-2

From the “Flower Girl” Card & Frame Kit, I selected various acetate frames and attached them to the tops of the inner pocket inserts.  Again, I used the green eyelets and Crop-A-Dile for attaching.  Different veneer pieces, puffy stickers and die-cuts were added for decoration.

Shellye McDaniel-Mothers Day Album11

Patterned papers were also cut to mat size and placed on the backs of the envelope pages.  These pages can accommodate a large 4X6 photo or a few smaller photos.

Shellye McDaniel-Mothers Day Album12-2

I used some different American Crafts Thickers from my stash to add extra-large words, as well as texture to the front page and the little banner flags above.

You may also think of using this style/shape mini album to design a house or home theme!  With all of the pockets, it’s great for storing receipts, bills-to-pay, etc.  By using the Cinch system, you can create well-made and professional looking mini albums and organizers.  Mom would love to receive any type of these handmade gifts!
