“Welcome Fall” Sign with the Freestyle Pens

Hello everyone. Enza here, and today I’m sharing a home décor piece created with one of the new We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill Freestyle Pens. These pens are amazing! Easy to use and very versatile. I have to admit, I was a bit apprehensive about this assignment. I’m not very good at drawing free-hand and my stash of stencils didn’t include a big, cursive quote that I could trace and “color” with foil. Then I came across a cut file I had been saving for a while. I loved the font and the design, and I thought it would look good enlarged to fit a 12×12 cardstock.

Here it is:

I apologize if I don’t have a full, frontal picture of the project. I wanted to show the beautiful gold foil on the orange cardstock, and this was the best way to do it 😉

I started by cutting the design with my electronic die cutting machine. As I mentioned above, I enlarged the quote to fit a 12×12 paper. I then layered the cardstock, a sheet of 12×12 gold foil, and my cut file on top.

I secured the bottom paper to my work table with the Foil Quill Placement Tape and did the same with the cut file. You want to make sure there is no shifting, so to obtain a clean design.

I used the Foil Quill Freestyle Bold Tip Pen, as the negative space of the cut file was pretty big – another option would be the Calligraphy Tip Pen; it has a wide tip and can help cut down on time.

For the little pieces inside the letters, I just kept them in place with my fingers and went around them with the pen. This is what made the process a bit long, but it was totally worth it in the end.

Once I was done with the quote, I picked a rose gold colored foil sheet from the Foil Quill Flamingo assorted pack and, using the same cut file, I added more shiny dots around the words.

I finished my project with lots of flowers from the Pink Paislee Auburn Lane collection and pom pom ribbon along the top and bottom edges of the paper.

I hope this has given you some more ideas on how to use the amazing Foil Quill Freestyle Pens. Thank you for stopping by.

Fall Cider Bar with the Foil Quill Freestyle Pens

Hey guys, Aly Dosdall here. Fall is on the way, and before you know it, it will be sweater weather! One of my favorite fall traditions is apple cider. I have a hot cup almost every night during the cold weather (sugar free, of course). I’m so inpsired by my love for cider, that I decided to create this fun idea for a fall get-together–an apple cider bar!

Throw this together after an evening at the corn maze or pumpkin patch, and enjoy some yummy warm drinks and fall snacks! This project features the Foil Quill Freestyle Pens, and I love the sparkle the foil adds to this pretty fall scene.

For the fall leaf backdrop, I cut out some leaf shapes with my Silhouette Cameo 3. I used some shapes from the Foil Quill USB Drives, and others from my personal library of SVG files.

The focal piece of this party decor is the banner, which I created with the Banner Punch Board, some black smooth cardstock, the Alphabet Punch Board and papers from the DCWV Inc Cider Woods stack, available at Joann Stores. To add foil to the banner, I used a metal magnetic ruler, magnetic mat, and the Calligraphy Tip Freestyle Pen to get the wide lines.

I also made some bottle tags for the apple cider! I love the copper foil with the cider–it looks so warm and inviting.

I handwrote these tags, and then punched them out with the bracket Clear Cut Punch. If you have great handwriting, it looks pretty cool, but even if you don’t love your handwriting, it’s a wonderful way to add a personal touch to your projects–your own writing in foil! So cool!

Here’s how I made the bottle tags–super easy! I cut 3×7 inch blocks of patterned paper, rounded the corners with the 3 Way Corner Rounder, scored them in half, and then punched a 2 inch hole in the center of one half. (You can save the leftover 2 inch circles for another project.)

To make the cinnamon streusel muffin topper I used one of the Heatwave Stencils, and punched the letters out with the Tag Clear Cut Punch.

Again, I used the Calligraphy Tip Pen to fill in the letters from my Heatwave Stencil. This would also make a great cake or cupcake topper!

Then I made some embellishments for the cups holding the cider mix-ins: one cup of caramels (drop them in and let them melt, then stir) and one cup of cinnamon sticks (place them in and stir, then let them sit).

The technique for making these is one of my favorites to use with the Freestyle Pens! I printed the fall images on thin copy paper and then placed the printed images over the foil, which was over my cardstock. The foil transfers beautifully even with the copy paper on top. You can also use vellum or tracing paper. Then I punched out the foiled designs.

The images I used are PNG files from the Holiday Foil Quill USB Drive. Each USB drive has both SVG and PNG files, and you can open the PNG files in a word document and print them for tracing!

I love how the Freestyle Pens add such a special touch to my fall project. I can’t wait to use them for holiday projects too!

Make Halloween Party Favors with the Freestyle Pens

Hey there We R fans, Laura here today. Halloween will be upon us very soon! I like to get a jump start on party planning ahead of time. Today, I am sharing how to embellish some cute Halloween party favors using the new Foil Quill Freestyle Pen.

Halloween Party Favors by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Foil Quill Freestyle Pens

Plug in and allow your Foil Quill Freestyle Pen to heat up.

Start by filling a 4 x 4 photo sleeve with Halloween favors. I filled mine with some candy pumpkins, a jelly bracelet, stickers, an eraser, and a small bat ring. Use the FUSE tool to close the top of the photo sleeve to create a little bag.

Halloween Party Favors by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Foil Quill Freestyle Pens

Next, use papers from the DCWV Happy Halloween stack to create a bag topper. To do this, cut a piece of cardstock 4 ½” wide by 4 inches tall. Use the scoring tool to score the paper at the 2” mark. Fold the paper in half and attach to the top of the bag using adhesive.

Next, create two banner shapes to attach to the front of the bag using the banner punch board. The first strip of patterned paper is 4 ½” long and 2” wide. Then, cut a strip of black Foil Quill cardstock 2 ½” wide.

Using the Foil Quill magnetic mat, first lay down a blank sheet of paper (to catch any foil that extends beyond the cardstock), then the strip of black cardstock, and on top a sheet of orange foil. Use the magnets to keep everything in place. Extend the foil a little above the top edge and side of the cardstock strip.

Use the standard tip to draw a spiderweb and spider in the upper left corner. I drew a little spider hanging off the web and then wrote Happy Halloween.

Cut the bottom of the black cardstock strip using the banner punch board to create a 4” long flag. I added a small Halloween puffy sticker to the bottom of each tag to give them a little extra dimension.

The foil detail is so much fun! It doesn’t take much longer than simply writing on the banner shape with a regular pen or marker.

Clip the two banner shapes onto the favor bag using a bat clothespin. These adorable Halloween party favors are perfect to hand out at your Halloween party, get together, or class party.

Travel Journal with the Freestyle Pens

The Foil Quill Freestyle Pens are my new favorite of all tools! I immediately fell in love with them. Without much preparation or equipment you can start right away. And it’s so easy. I will certainly use the pens often.

Travel Journal with the Freestyle Pens by Steffi Ried for We R Memory Keepers

I used the All-In-One Kit for my project. The pens have different sizes (Fine Tip, Standard Tip and Bold Tip). So I tried them first. I could see exactly how each pen writes and what the result looks like.

FoilQuill Freestyle Pen by SteffiRied 1

For my Travel Journal I wanted to design the background with leaves. For this I cut out sheets of paper in different shapes (paper is from the Horizon collection of Pink Paislee).

Travel Journal with the Freestyle Pens by Steffi Ried for We R Memory Keepers

Before I started with the pen, I used wash tape on the cardstock (underside) and taped it on the mat so it doesn’t slip. Now stick the foil over the cardstock. I was careful so that the Washi Tape is not stuck on the Cardstock. This makes it easier to remove.

Now plug in the Freestyle Pen and heat it up. Meanwhile I stamped my cut out leaves on the foil. So I already have the shapes to trace them with the pen. Here I used the pen with the standard tip.

Travel Journal with the Freestyle Pens by Steffi Ried for We R Memory Keepers

After I foiled the first two leaves, I added leaves to my cardstock in other places. Until the background was filled with golden leaves.

Travel Journal with the Freestyle Pens by Steffi Ried for We R Memory KeepersTravel Journal with the Freestyle Pens by Steffi Ried for We R Memory Keepers

At the end a few cut out leaves were glued on and the page was finished. Since this side of the spread is very colorful, I kept the other side with the photo rather simple.

I hope you like my project and I have already planned more pages with the Foil Quill Freestyle Pen in my album. Thanks a lot for stopping by!

Halloween Pocket Party Favors

Hello, friends!  It’s Rebecca and I hope you are in the mood for some Halloween treats today!  It’s only August, that’s true, but I just got the cutest spooky paper pad from DCWV and I couldn’t wait to use it to create some party favors.  It’s called Witches Brew, it’s available at Joann Stores, and I paired it up with some of my favorite WRMK tools like the Banner Punch BoardPocket Maker Punchboard, and the Happy Jig for some scary goodies!

Halloween Party Pocket Favors by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

After choosing some chilling paper patterns, I created pockets to house some fun-size candy.  I followed the instructions on the Pocket Maker Punchboard to make 4.25″ x 5″ notched pockets.  You could use the pocket style with the flap, as well, but I thought it would be enticing to give a little sneak of what’s inside so I opted to leave the top open.

Halloween Party Pocket Favors by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

Both pocket styles are easy to make with the board, but the notched pockets come together super-quick and if you have a lot of them to make, it might save you a little time.  After assembling the pockets, I filled them with the candy treats, then tied black ribbon around the pocket, resting it in the notch; that keeps the candy from spilling out and holds the ribbon in place.

Halloween Party Pocket Favors by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

Next, I chose some matching papers to create banner tags with the Banner Punchboard.  Most of the tags are about 3″ x 3″, give or take.  I paired each tag with a small card that I trimmed from the Witches Brew stack.  They offer really cute designs and sayings, and what I like most about this collection is that the colors are a more complex palette for Halloween than standard bright orange, purple, and green.  Some of the papers will even work well for non-Halloween projects.

Halloween Party Pocket Favors by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

With my Crop-a-Dile, I secured the card and tag together with black eyelets to stop them from ripping when I slid the ribbon through the hole.

Halloween Party Pocket Favors by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

The final touch was a pipe cleaner bat that I made with the Happy Jig.  You can use wire if you’d rather, but I found that 12″ black pipe cleaners were just the right length for the bats, and I can let my kids help make them!  The pipe cleaners are a bit more malleable than the wire for their small hands, but they still hold the shape well.  As a bonus, they lend some fuzzy texture to the packages!

This is an easy and fun Halloween project that will come in handy this year when we celebrate my son’s birthday in mid-October.  I’m thinking of having a Halloween costume birthday party for him and I’ve already got a head start on the favors!

Make Halloween Treat Bags with the Mini Evolution

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a Halloween treat project. I love making Halloween treats, but time is always of the essence. So, using a few We R Memory Keepers tools, I was able to put together some really fun treats in no time flat! Plus, I can always get the helpers around the house to put these together, because the tools are that easy to use.

DIY Halloween Treat Bags with the Mini Evolution by Kimberly Crawford by We R Memory Keepers

After placing your desired treats in a small, plastic bag, seal the ends with the Fuse Tool.

DIY Halloween Treat Bags with the Mini Evolution by Kimberly Crawford by We R Memory Keepers

The Fuse Tool will seal the bag and hold all the treats inside. To use the Fuse Tool, begin by plugging it and giving it a few minutes to heat up.

Note: Put candy in the bag BEFORE sealing. Helpful hint. 😀

DIY Halloween Treat Bags with the Mini Evolution by Kimberly Crawford by We R Memory Keepers

When the tool is ready, place the Fuse Tool ruler over the end of the bag, making sure that the bag is flat and aligned. Follow the edge of the ruler, slowly, with the Fuse Tool. Be sure and place the bag on a heat-resistant surface before sealing it closed. The tip of the Fuse Tool gets very hot, so use caution.

DIY Halloween Treat Bags with the Mini Evolution by Kimberly Crawford by We R Memory Keepers

Once the bags are sealed, it is time to create the toppers. Trim these adorable patterned papers from DCWV down to size. By scoring the paper in the middle, it creates a topper that covers both front and back.

Mini Evolution, Embossing Folders and Embossing Tape by We R Memory Keepers

To create the tricks and treats tape, take out the We R Memory Keepers Mini Evolution, Label Tape, and a Label Embossing folder. The Label Tape is sticky once the backing is removed, making it the perfect sticker for the treat bags.

Mini Evolution, Embossing Folder and Embossing Tape by We R Memory Keepers

Pass the tape, inside of the embossing folder, through the We R Memory Keepers Mini Evolution. When embossing with folders, use the two clear plates. Also be sure to have the Label Tape color facing up to get the cool embossed look.

Mini Clear Cut Star Punch by We R Memory Keepers

For a little more color on the treat bags, add some stars punched from paper with a Clear Cut Punch-Mini.

After assembling the toppers, adhere them to the bags. One line of tape on the inside-back, and one line of tape on the inside-front keeps the bags secure.
