Make a Halloween Mini Album with the Foil Quill

Hello We R fans! It’s Aly here with you today to share an easy and impactful Halloween scrapbooking project. I used the Foil Quill and my Silhouette Cameo to create custom foiled patterned paper and titles to make my album. Check it out!

This spooky album includes pockets I made with the Pocket Punch Board that are stitched together. I adhered photos onto tags that I inserted in each of the pockets.

Let me show you how I made this Foil Quill Halloween Mini Album! First, I foiled some spider web designs on black cardstock to make custom foiled patterned paper. I sized the images to 6 inches so I could cut them down and make 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 pockets.

IMG_1216IMG_1217

Using the Magnetic Mat made the job quicker since I was foiling only and not cutting. I used the Standard Tip and a Silver 12×12 Foil Sheet. The spider web designs are from my personal SVG library, and the words and phrases are from THIS Hello Heidi Digital Halloween Bundle.

IMG_1219

I trimmed the paper down to the size indicated on the Pocket Punch Board to make 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch notch pockets, and made my pockets.

I cut tags from different black and white patterned papers with the Tag Punch Board, and then I punched out some stars and half moons using the Mini Clear Cut Punches.

Foil Pumpkin Ornaments with the Freestyle Pen

Hello We R friends, Laura here today. I have been busy decorating my house for fall. I always find fun craft blanks at the dollar store. I found some cute wooden pumpkin ornaments to decorate and thought they would be perfect to use with the Foil Quill Freestyle Pen.

Foil Quill Freestyle Pen Pumpkin Ornaments by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Start by painting your wooden pumpkins. You could leave the wood grain depending on your design, but I thought painting them orange and green first would really make the foil stand out.

Allow them to dry thoroughly. This doesn’t take long if you are using acrylic paint.

For the first pumpkin, I freehanded lines on the pumpkin with orange foil.

Then, I used a Heatwave stencil to create a little green pumpkin vine and leaves. I found it was easiest to line up the stencil by cutting my foil to the size of the design I was tracing.

On the next pumpkin I wanted to add our name to the pumpkin. I don’t always love my handwriting, so I designed something on my computer and printed it out on regular copy paper.

I taped the copy paper in place on my pumpkin first to make sure I had everything lined up correctly. Then I carefully lifted the copy paper and placed my foil underneath. I taped it in place, so it didn’t move while I was writing.

I used both the bold and fine tip pens for the words. I used the bold Freestyle Foil Quill pen for the cursive and the fine tipped one for words THE and FAMILY.

To get good coverage with the pens when using a paper template, I found it was best to go slowly and to press firmly. I got good results using this method, but you could also print out your design using a thinner paper like tracing paper.

Tie ribbon to the top of the ornament to hang.

These fun ornaments look so cute with the rest of my fall décor at the house. You could also use this technique to make an adorable gift tag for a present.

How to Foil on 3D Projects with the Freestyle Pen

Autumn is already coming around here. I like to decorate our house for it.

Over the last few days I have foiled many objects with the Foil Quill Pen. And I created my first 3D project without paper. Yes really! Without paper. And I love it.

Foil on your Fall Decor with the Freestyle Pen by Steffi Ried for We R Memory Keepers

I really wanted to foil our autumn decor with the Freestyle Foil Quill Pen. So first I bought some pumpkins and painted them. The decoration should be bright and light. After I painted the pumpkin with white acrylic paint, I used the Freestyle Pen (Standard). A few hearts foiled with rose gold on it and it’s done! Totally simple. I was surprised how easy it works.

In autumn I like candles very much as decoration on the table. So I foiled some candles with the Free Style Pen.

At first, I tested on a few old candles. I found out that you should write quickly. Because the hot tip of the pen melts the wax. But with a little practice it is quite simple. First fix the foil with the Washi Tape to the candle. Then, draw your design with the pen.

Excess wax can easily be scraped off with scissors. This way the unattractive areas can be repaired.

Finally I foiled some leaves on acetate with the Freestyle Pen. Then I simply cut them out with scissors.

I decorated the vase with the foil leaves. I scattered the remaining leaves on the table. Maybe I’ll make a garland out of them. My daughter already has an plan.

October Journal Dashboard

Hello and happy Friday! Aly Dosdall back again. My crafting style is usually pretty clean and graphic, but recently I’ve decided to play around with some fun mixed media techniques and broaden my crafty horizons a bit. The new Impressed Stamping Daubers and Dauber Bottle were the perfect way to delve into some mixed media fun, and I used them to create my October journal dasboard. Check it out!

October TN Dashboard by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers 3

I include photos in my journal, so I really wanted to highlight these photos of the leaves starting to change in our yard as this is what the beginning of October represents where I live.

October TN Dashboard by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers 7

October TN Dashboard by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers 5

I used some simple and fun techniques with the stamping daubers to get this colorful look on my dashboard, and I’ll show you how!

I started by cutting out some fall leaf shapes from a scrap of vinyl with my Evolution. I used those as masks on my dashboard, and spread them around the layout in a visual triangle.

step out 1

Then I used the Standard tip Freestyle Pen and some copper Foil Quill foil to write my title. While my handwriting skills are lacking, I feel it’s important to include some of my handwriting in my journal since it’s a part of who I am!

step out 2

Next, I choose some of my favorite fall colors that coordinate with the colors in my photos. I used the daubers to apply the ink to the back of an acrylic stamping block. I filled the dauber bottle with water, and then daubed some water on the block next to the ink, being careful not to get ink on the dauber bottle. I used my stamping dauber to mix the two together to get a watercolor consistency from the ink.

step out 3

Then I applied the ink to my dashboard in horizontal strokes, using my stamping dauber as a brush. I paid extra attention to the fall leaf masks to make sure the ink surrounded the shapes competely.

step out 4

Once the ink dried, I used the Precision Press Pattern Stamps and Stamping Block to stamp in a white color over the ink to add some dimension and layers to the dashboard. Then I removed the vinyl masks, and look how cool it turned out!

step out 5

I added a copper foil outline inside the fall leaf shapes using the metal die I had cut the vinyl with as a template. I first placed the die over the leaf shape and used at piece of washi tape at the very top to secure the die. Then I lifted it up and slid the foil underneath. Then I traced around the inside of the die.

step out 6step out 7

I finished off my dashboard by adding a few embellishments and a tab to mark where October starts in my journal. The Staple Board made it easy to add the tab to my page.

step out 8

I love how my dashboard turned out! Mixed media is a step outside of my comfort zone, but with the Impressed Stamping Daubers is was fun and easy to create this colorful dashboard!

How to Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps

Hello!  It’s Rebecca with you today, taking on autumn-inspired packages and spotlighting some WRMK stamping tools, specifically the Mini Precision Press and the Mini Evolution Stamp, Die, and Emboss kit.  I have a tutorial for you for the stamping portion of the gifts, along with a couple of tips to make your projects sail along smoothly.

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory KeepersMake DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

My first tip: Read the directions!!  I know, it seems so simple, but I often jump right into a thing without giving the directions a second thought, especially if it’s something I think I already know how to do, like stamping.  If you’re working with either of the Precision Presses (Advanced or Mini) or the kit, it’s going to help you sort out all the products and use the presses correctly.  Also, there are helpful tips in the directions, like stamping your lighter colored images first and using the perfect paper size.

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

I’m starting with the Celebrate tag.  The components to create this pretty floral piece line up exactly with the pegs of the Mini Precision Press.  These stamps will also work with plain clear acrylic blocks or the large Precision Press; likewise, the Mini Precision Press is a great tool for any of your smaller stamps, not just these.

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

Align the stamps to the press first, then position your cardstock.  Tip: I recommend using a bit of washi tape to keep it in place.  Rub a good quality white eraser over your stamps to remove oils or lint and smooth the clear stamp surface to absorb the ink.  When you’re ready, ink up the stamp, and press to your cardstock.

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

You may get great coverage on your very first try, and you may not, which is why a stamping tool like the PP is nice to use.  This is also why it’s good to use the washi to keep the paper in place.  Stamp again if needed and then add the second part of the image–the leafy spray.

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory KeepersMake DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

If you’re using this kit, and these particular images, you can run your paper through the Mini Evolution with the die cutting/embossing folder.  It will create the tag you see here.  I also made a tag from some DCWV patterned paper that I’ll use for my gift wrap.

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

The above stamps were coordinated and placed just-so, but what if you want to make your own design?  That’s just as simple with the PP.  On a different tag, I decided to use some of the other stamps in the kit.  I love to create my own backgrounds and it’s difficult to mess up if you’re using a stamp guide.  You’ll always know exactly where you’re stamping your images.

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

I taped my cardstock to the platform base again to keep it from moving since this design requires more placing/removing of the clear top piece.  Place your stamps face down on your paper in the position and area you want them, press the top piece down to grab them, and lift off.  When you put it back down with ink on the stamp, it will be right where you meant to stamp the image.

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

When I’m creating a design like this, I make sure to clean off my stamp between each round so I don’t get smudges on my paper.  It’s an extra step if you’re using the same stamp over and over, but you know you’ll get great results each time.  In the end, I have a pretty paper swatch, ready to be turned into a tag.  Tip: You can use a different ink each time you stamp an image for an extra colorful design!

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

After my tags were created, it was time to make the packaging, which I did with my trusty 1-2-3 Punch Board.  I chose an A7 size envelope box this time.  It’s as easy to make as an envelope, but there’s an extra scored line on each rotation and you end up with a box that’s 3/4″ deep.  (It’s a terrific way to package notecard sets!)

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

My papers are from DCWV Faded Floral paper stack.  The colors and patterns are gorgeous and I’m excited to dip back into my favorite color palette, the autumn-inspired navy blue, coral pink, ochre/burnt orange, and gray.

Make DIY Gift Wrap with Your Stamps by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

I tied some ribbon around each box, attached my stamped tags, as well as a coordinating patterned paper tag, and then embellished with yarn pom-poms.  Pom-poms on gift wrap is still a favorite of mine, and I made these with the Pom-Pom maker set.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressed Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced

Hello We R Fans! As the days turn colder, we are starting to have more time to devote to being crafty. Seems like a great time to add some new tools to your collection and to learn a new technique with a trusty We R Memory Keepers tool already in your stash.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To create this card, I started by inking a panel of card stock with the new Impressions Dauber set. This set of inking tools is fantastic! Each of the daubers has foam on the end, either in a circle or triangle shape, that is meant for inking. The daubers fit easily on your fingertip, or can be gripped.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Start by swirling your dauber into the ink color of your choosing. When you put your ink-loaded dauber down on paper, it will be very dark and intense. To help keep your ink more even on the paper, start by moving your dauber in a circular motion on a craft mat before applying it to the paper. I am using the American Crafts craft mat here. Continue to add ink and slowly build up your layers of color. Set the background aside to dry as it will need to be dry for the next steps.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

The We R Memory Keepers Precision Press is perfect for lining up stamps to create a shadow effect. On this card, I will create the shadow effect with a gold heat embossed image and a plain inked image.

  1. Place your card stock in the Precision Press, securing it into a corner with the magnets
  2. Set the stamp (uninked) down on your card stock where you want the sentiment to appear.
  3. Place the lid of the Precision Press over the top and then press down to pick up the stamp. This will ensure the stamp will be in the exact location after you apply ink to the image.
  4. Ink the image.
  5. Return the lid and stamp down. Push to get even pressure along the image.
  6. Heat set the image.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

  1. Clean and remove the stamp from the lid of the Precision Press.
  2. Return the stamp to the card stock, but instead of lining it up perfectly over the image, set it slightly below and to the right.
  3. Put the lid on again and pick up the stamp.
  4. Ink the image. Replace the lid. Push down.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

  1. When you remove the image because of the surface of the heat embossing, you will need to remove the ink from the surface. I used a cotton swab for a more precise removal.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Finish the card base off with floral images stamped in watermark ink. The Mini Precision Press, lid-only, is perfect for stamping images all over. Apply gold dust to the wet ink. Adhere the card stock to a card base.

I am fairly certain that I will be adding a shadow stamp to all my sentiments now! Will you give this a try?
