Square Punch Board Scrapbook Page

Happy Monday, We R friends! Laura here today with a squares scrapbook page that is so simple to put together with a little help from the square punch board and laser square.

I started with the Butterflies & Flowers cardstock stack from DCWV. I chose my favorite papers from the stack and punched out twelve 2 ½” x 2 ½” squares using the square punch board.

The punch board makes it easy to punch out more than one square from the same sheet. You can use double-sided patterned paper and get two squares from each sheet with just a couple of punches.

I used my paper trimmer to cut out two rectangles that were 2 ½” x 5 ½”. To line everything up on my page I used the laser square as my guide.

The detail scissors made it easy to cut out three butterflies from one of the cardstock sheets in the stack. I always like to add a little dimension to my scrapbook pages. I did this by folding up the wings and using an adhesive dot on one.

This was the perfect backdrop for our family photo from 2017. I usually take our photo when we go out into the woods in November to cut down a Christmas tree. It is fun because sometimes we have snow and sometimes, like last year, we don’t have any. We all probably could have been in shorts it was so warm the day we went!

I used the 3-way corner punch to round the corners on both the orange photo mat and the photograph. I also used the punch on some of the squares and the two rectangles I used for the background.

I attached the photo using adhesive dots. I added some stick-on sequin and gem embellishments to the photo.

I added more sequin and gems to different squares of the layout to tie everything together.

I love the way this layout turned out. The papers all work beautifully together. Once I had my design in mind, the square punch board made it so easy to get the squares cut out for the background. And I feel like I waste less paper using the square punch board because it cuts the square out of the corner of the page, rather than having to cut a strip off the sheet using my paper trimmer.

Planner Spread with the Typecast Typewriter

Hello everybody Soraya here with you to share a new planner spread using the wonderful typewriter by We R Memory Keepers: the Typecast! It is so easy to add journaling and stories to our projects. It also adds such an authentic look!

Planner Spread with the Typecast Typewriter by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

When I decorate my planner, I love adding lovely embellishments, tags, stickers… and journaling! Yes, the words are definitely an embellishment for me. Wether with the Typecast or with our hand writing, the words we use can immediately give some great dimension! This is what I did for this pread, I created a spring bucket list.

Using the Mini Alphabet Punch Board is also something that I love to do when it comes to decorating my planner. Those little letters are so cute, I could put them anywhere! So here is a “hello” that will welcome the spring pages. I followed the instructions on the Alphabet Punch Board App directly on my phone, it’s way cooler!

As you have to use little paper rectangles (1.5 x 2.5 inches) with the mini board, I cut them out with my fabulous Trim & Score Board. And here we go!

Scrapbook Page with the Typecast Typewriter

Happy Spring everyone, Nancy here with a look at two new paper pads from Die Cut With a View. I used the new Diecut Shapes and Tropicana Premium Stacks which are filled with beautiful patterns on heavyweight paper with splashes of gold foil.

Scrapbook Page with the Typecast Typewriter by Nancy Damiano for We R Memory Keepers

 

The Diecut Shapes stack includes many styles from florals to graphic motifs. I started this layout with a row of die cut flags. This starts the framework of the design and adds a punch of color and texture.

Scrapbook Page with the Typecast Typewriter by Nancy Damiano for We R Memory Keepers

 

Next,  I used the Alphabet Alignment Guide to mark off where my journaling should begin and end. Using a pencil to lightly draw a rectangle just above the row of flags.

Scrapbook Page with the Typecast Typewriter by Nancy Damiano for We R Memory Keepers

 

I pulled out the brand new red Typecast typewriter to add the story. I love that this handy typewriter can be used on 12×12 paper. I can journaling just about anywhere on my design and that is fabulous! The bright cherry color doesn’t hurt either.

Scrapbook Page with the Typecast Typewriter by Nancy Damiano for We R Memory Keepers

 

Just above the journaling, a bed of layers was created using some patterned paper from the Tropicana stack. The DieCut Premium Stack came in handy for all of the embellished shaped layers. A journaling card, circular die cut, foil palms accent and ombre tag were used to frame out the focal point photo. All of the different colors and shapes add texture and depth to the center of the design.

A very simple line of machine stitching was added to tie the flags together and finish off the layout. The combination of Die Cut with a View’s Premium Stacks and the Typecast Typewriter make for easy and beautiful scrapbook design!

Accordion Fold Card Organizer

Hello WeR fans and welcome back to the blog today! It’s Chantalle back with you today to show you how a great way to organize your handmade cards and tags. I’ve had the joy of working with some amazing new release paper pads by DCWV these last few weeks and let me tell you, they are definitely worth adding to your stash! The two stacks I’d like to focus on today are the ‘Die Cut Shapes’ which features loads of die cut shapes and gold foil accents and ‘Just my Type’.

DIY Accordion Card Organizer by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

This organizer was supposed to be a little card and envelope gift set for someone (and still could be if I can bare to let go of it lol!) but it sort of morphed into a bit more than that and now contains an assortment of little cards and tags that I can turn to when I’m in need of last minute gift tag or thank you note.

DIY Accordion Card Organizer by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers
The accordion fold looked simple at first. I searched the web for a suitable technique and will admit to struggled a bit in the beginning, fine tuning it for my purposes. Now that I know how it turns out, you will definitely spend less time on it if you wish to create a similar little folder for yourself!

The base for the folder is made out of 1 sheet of 12×12 paper. I tried cardstock and patterned paper but neither yielded the results I was looking for. I settled for a thinner paper and the perfect weight for this job was from a sheet of DCWV ‘Celebrations’ 12×12 Stack. The paper is single sided and folded really nicely.

I first tried ¾ inch score lines on my  Score Board but that width didn’t fold up quite as well on ½ an inch. I scored across the paper, every half inch and then rotated the paper anti clockwise and scored again at 3 and 9 inches respectively. I then folded the larger sections in towards themselves (see pic 2 below) to deepen the score line.

Folding the paper up into a long line once more, I then tucked and folded up the folds in the accordion. Watching a video will make this seem a bit less complex. Click here for some selections:

We R Memory Keepers Score Board

As you can see, I tried a couple of times to get the ends to stand up nicely so that I could add my cardstock dividers. A 12×12 sheet of paper created this folder which has 11 pockets and is 6 inches across and just over 3 inches high. This would be really great to organize project life cards as well!

In between the accordion pockets, I popped some printed cardstock dividers from the fabulous DCWV ‘Just my Type’ 12×12 Stack. This gorgeous pad is bright and beautiful and has awesome clear embossing elements! The dividers are just a touch under 6 inches across and 3 inches high. You may have to tweak them to fit perfectly, to suit your folding etc. 

The next step was to add tabs to the dividers, so I can see at a glance what each pocket contains!

DIY Accordion Card Organizer by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

My Typecast Typewriter was perfect for this task. I typed my headings directly onto the patterned paper and then used my Tab Punch Board to punch out the tab shapes. These were then glued to the pockets.

Now that I had my folder ready, it was time to fill it with a selection of cards and tags!

I cut several pieces of Bazzill cardstock in various shades, each 3×6 inches across. I then use my Mini Score Board (heart eyes for this little tool, seriously!!) to score at 3 inches across so I could get a nice neat fold.

Mini Score Board

Embellishing my cards was SO easy, thanks to the Die Cut Shapes stack. This baby is packed full of various shapes and colors and all to use at the drop of a hat – simply pop out the shape you want and adhere! TIP: At times you will get the little ‘grips’ that stick around after you have popped a die cut shape out of the stencil. These are easy to nip off with a bit of fine sandpaper or another fave new tool, my little Detail Scissors.

Here are some cards I created using various die cuts, which I have just added some detail to with little embellies like enamel dots, glossy accents, ribbon or machine stitching.

Unicorns for the win!

Some super quick generic cards. TIP: I’ve brought out a bit of detail on the flowers using some Crystal Drops which you can get in various shades online.

Cheerful notes sure to brighten someone’s day!

I’ve highlighted the gold foil on the bird die cut with some Vicki Boutin Rub-Ons. I find it really annoying when a rub-on is difficult to, erm rub on. But these go on like a breeze! I used my Embossing Stylus to apply them.

DIY Accordion Card Organizer by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Here are some larger tags I included in the set. They are also from the die cut pad. I’ve snipped the top corners off using my Tag Punch Board and run some ribbon through them so they’re ready to use. A bit of detail has also been added to them in the form of finding an ‘echo’ shape like the bigger bird or flower and adding it with some foam tape to the tag for some dimension.

DIY Accordion Card Organizer by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I also created some mini tags from various shapes like emoji’s. This pad is so full of variety, I have no doubt you will find the exact shape you are looking for.

Lastly, I need some co-ordinating envelopes for these guys! I used my DCWV ‘Celebrations’ 12×12 Stack again as the paper is perfect for envelopes. To make these mini beauties, I used the oh-so-adorable Mini Envelope Punch Board. This little punchboard will create envelopes for cards up to 4×4 inches.

The cute baby brother to the Envelope Punch Board!

A little random pocket I added was a ‘Bits & Pieces’ section. I’ve put some little embellies here like paperclips etc to adhere your card or tag to a gift. I’ve also folded up some cut ribbon sections and added some clear circular stickers.

I’ve already used one of the thank you cards for a friend of mine who recently went to Japan and brought me back of the most incredible handmade paper!

DIY Tag Bookmarks

Hey there, We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here to share some fun and EASY tag bookmarks with you. Of course, I created these bookmarks with a few of my favorite We R Memory Keepers tools that you can find at JoAnn’s stores. I have a LOT of nieces who love to read. They all love bookmarks too!

DIY Tag Bookmarks by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

I sat down with a few We R Memory Keepers tools, the Tag Pad from DCWV and within a few minutes I had several bookmarks to share with my nieces.

I loved playing with the Tag Stack from DCWV they have so many versatile patterns within on paper pad. There are so many cute designs that you can punch right out of the papers. There are also double sided patterned papers. That’s what I used to create the base of the bookmarks.

DIY Tag Bookmarks by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

The two We R Memory Keepers tools that I reach for all.the.time are my trim and score board and my crop-a-dile. My crop-a-dile is one of the most used/oldest tools in my stash. I’ve had this tool for years and I still reach for it almost daily.

DIY Tag Bookmarks by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

The trim and score board cuts perfectly each time. One of my favorite features of the trim and score board is that it folds in half for easy storage. Space in my craft room is always at a premium so a compact tool is my favorite.

DIY Tag Bookmarks by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

While we’re talking about favorite tools, I used another favorite tool to add the finishing touch to these bookmarks. I personalized each bookmark with my niece’s name. I simply typed their names on a piece of white cardstock and stapled the strip of white cardstock at the bottom of the bookmark. I love my typecast typewriter. If you have typecast typewriter you must get the cover for it. Let me tell you, it’s a life saver. We’re working on a major construction project at our house and there is dust everywhere. I’m SO glad that I have a dust cover on my typewriter. It’s so nice not to worry about my typewriter getting dirty.

Mother’s Day Gift Idea: DIY Journal

Happy Friday We R friends! It’s Aly here with you again. Mother’s Day is so special–I love celebrating the women in my life who have incluenced me the most. Along with the joy also comes a bit of stress because I want to give my special peeps something meaningful that shows them how amazing they are. I often turn to handmade gifts, and that’s exactly what I did this year.

DIY Mothers Day Journal Gift by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

My mom is an avid reader and writer who loves family history, so I created a DIY journal complete with journaling prompts that will encourage my mom to write down her ideas, thoughts, experiences, and all those important details that I want to have recorded for years to come.

DIY Mothers Day Journal Gift by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

The DCWV Journaling Stack provided the perfect spring board for this project. Its full of patterned paper and die cut journaling cards, tags, and labels that you can punch out and add directly to your projects. I love the soft color scheme–perfect for a Mother’s Day gift!

DIY Mothers Day Journal Gift by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

I created the cover with a double sided piece of cardstock from the DCWV Okey Dokey Stack that coordinates perfectly with the Journaling Stack. I cut a 7 x 8 inch block and scored it vertically down the middle with my Trim and Score Board. Then I decorated the front of the cover with some die cuts I punched out of the Journaling Stack.

Trim and Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

For the inside pages of the journal I gathered four pieces of paper from the Journaling Stack. They’re thin text weight paper–perfect for journal pages. I cut them all to 6 7/8 x 7 7/8 inches so they’re just smaller than the cover. That way when folded to fit in the journal, the edges of the inside pages don’t stick out over the cover. I stapled the cover and inside pages together with my Staple Board to finish the structure of the journal.

DIY Mothers Day Journal Gift by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

I added a journaling prompt to each of the inside pages, along with some die cut embellishments I punched out of the Journaling Stack. I also made some frames to embellish some of my pages using the Frame Punch Board.

I finished off my DIY Journal with decorative paper clips, and secured it shut with a Heidi Swapp binder clip. Visit your local JoAnn Store to find the supplies I used to make this project.

Throwback Thursday: Mother’s Day Pillow Boxes

Welcome to Throwback Thursday friends! We’re revisiting these fabulous Mother’s Day Pillow Boxes from last year–we still just can’t get over how sweet they are! We hope they inspire you.
Hey there, We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here to share with you a set of 3 Mother’s Day pillow boxes that I created with the Pillow Box Punch Board and the DIY Party Tag Punch.
Mother's Day Gift Boxes by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers
I’m hanging my head in shame as I admit that this is the first time I’ve used my Pillow Box Punch Board. Honestly, I have no idea why it took me so long to play with this awesome tool. It’s been in my office for a while now, I don’t know why I haven’t played with it but I’m glad that I had a chance to play with it for this project.Mother's Day Gift Boxes by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers
Whenever Mother’s Day rolls around we always have a gift for all of the moms in our life. Usually these are small gifts such as jewelry, gift cards, fancy chocolates, or even a small gift that the kids have made at school. Each year, I throw the gifts in a small gift bag or envelope on the evening before Mother’s Day and call it good. This year, I thought I would plan ahead and create little pillow boxes for our Mother’s Day gifts.
Mother's Day Gift Boxes by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers
All you need to create these gorgeous Mother’s Day Pillow Boxes is a Pillow Punch Board, the Tag Punch, patterned paper, ribbon, a few small wooden clothespins and a few letter stickers. The instructions that come with (and printed on the punch board) make these pillow boxes come together in minutes. When I had the pillow boxes complete I added just a little bit of embellishment with the tag punch, some fussy cut butterflies, and a few letter stickers.

Mother's Day Gift Boxes by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers
I created three one inch tags using patterned paper that coordinated with the papers I chose for the pillow boxes. After I finished the tags and the pillow boxes, I tied each pillow box with ribbon. I simply attached the tag to the pillow box with a white clothes pin.


See, easy peasy! I love how these pillow boxes turned out and you all know that I LOVE the tag punch. The Pillow Box Punch Board is now among my favorite tools. Now that I’ve played with the Pillow Box Punch board, I know I’ll be reaching for it again, and again.Mother's Day Gift Boxes by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

Mother’s Day Card

Hello We R fans! Kimberly here with a special Mother’s Day card. There is nothing better than making our moms feel special, especially with a handmade card! But what is even better is when some great tools from We R Memory Keepers and a cute paper pad from DCWV make it quick and easy. Because, let’s face it, we need some time for ourselves on Mother’s Day too!

Mother's Day Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

This card started with the Paper Party Stack from DCWV. This pad is full of great patterned papers, but also a fun bonus…

…pre-cut pieces that create rolled flowers! When I saw these rolled flowers, I knew they would make the perfect “O” in mom. What a huge wow factor!

Mother's Day Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To begin, I cut my patterned paper for my card layers with the We R Memory Keepers Trim & Score Board. This 12×12 trimmer folds up, so it sits on your work space easily. Plus, when making a card, I can choose to score and create a clean fold on my card stock.

Mother's Day Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To create the two ms for mom, I used the We R Memory Keepers Mini Alphabet Punch Board. The letter m can be made two different ways, both are shown in the book that comes with the board. I chose the one-piece method, due to the patterned in the paper I had chosen.

To give some extra depth to the card, and to make the word mom really stand out, I applied the letters to the card with foam adhesive.

Mother’s Day Gift Idea: DIY Floral Home Decor

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva here today sharing a tutorial on how to create a beautiful Mother’s Day gift: Floral Home Décor using the gorgeous Cool Kids Stack from DCWV and the Trim and Score Board.

Mother's Day Floral Letterboard Gift Idea by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

To create the leaves and flowers start by choosing your favorite papers from the Cool Kids paper pad from DCWV. I love this pad! It has 36 papers and some of them include gold foil. Plus, the papers are thick and double sided, perfect for any kind of craft project!

Use your Trim and Score Board to score your paper every ¼ inch.

Rotate your paper 90 degrees and flip the blue tab to trim your paper. For the big flowers I trimmed my paper at 1 ½ inch, for the medium flowers at 1 ¼ inch and for the small flowers at 1 inch.

Trim and Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

These flowers are like rosettes but with a twist. To make them, I used my Alphabet Punch Board and made two marks with a pencil on the board: one in the middle of the left circle and one 1 inch apart.

To create the scallop borders I lined up my paper on the first mark and punched.

 Square Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

Move your paper to the left and line up the narrowest part of your paper on the second mark. Continue this way until you have finished punching the strip of paper.

Alphabet Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

Use your Crafter’s Glue Gun to close the flower and use a small fringed paper to make the flower center, simply roll it and glue the edge.

We R Memory Keepers Trim and Score Board flowers by Eva Pizarro

To create the leaves I also used my Trim and Score Board and scored every ¼ of an inch. I trimmed a few strips of paper in different heights and cut the border following the image on the picture. Using your Crop a Dile make small holes on the bottom of the leaves and use a small thread to keep the leave together.

These are some of the flowers and leaves I created. See how gorgeous that foil looks? And I love the dimension of these rosette flowers!

You can use your flowers for any project but I used them to decorate my Letterboard. I created two clusters: one on the top right corner and one of the bottom left corner.

I attached my flowers with 3D dots and when I change the quote on my Letterboard I can use them to make another project!
