Precision Press Advanced Scrapbook Page

Hi everyone! Soraya here with you today to share a new layout using the Precision Press Advanced! I’m so excited for this new tool–I love the fact that you can easily stamp wherever you want on your page thanks to the rotating acrylic block. I will show you how I made it!

As I wanted to include a big heart die in the center of the page, I decided to play with the layered butterflies stamp set and add extra dimension thanks to the Precision Press Advanced. First I used the acrylic block like a traditionnal block and stamped several butterflies on my background.

Then I used some of the gorgeous papers from the Botanical Beauty paper pad to fill the heart shape with different patterns.

On another watercolor paper I stamped several layered butterflies using different We R Memory Keepers ink colors. How easy it is to align each layer of the stamp! And I could also rotate the acrylic block to make more stamps in a row!

Then I fussy cut all of them with my detail scissors before sticking them directly on the layout, but I only put adhesive on one half of each butterfly to create more dimension. This way, we can easily see the first image underneath.

Summer Card with the Precision Press Advanced

Hi there We R friends, Nancy here today with a look at the Precision Press Advanced. I love crisp stamped images on stamping projects and this tool comes in handy! Let’s create a card with ombre images with a design twist.

Summer Card with the Precision Press Advanced by Nancy Damiano for We R Memory Keepers

There are certainly ombre ink pads that could be purchased, but I’m more of a use what I have kind of gal. I pulled out two shades of pigment inks in pink, orange, green and blue. The Precision Press Advanced and a solid center stamp will bring this card to life!

Summer Card with the Precision Press Advanced by Nancy Damiano for We R Memory Keepers

Use the removal stamp plate and place the clear stamp. Next, using the darker pigment ink up half of the image and then add the lighter shade to the opposite side. Don’t worry about the overlap, it will create a beautiful hue.

Summer Card with the Precision Press Advanced by Nancy Damiano for We R Memory Keepers

This is what the image will look like after the first stamp attempt. Now this is where the Precision Press Advanced shines – you can keep inking and restamping getting a perfectly aligned image every single time. The press allows you to continue building layers of color until you have a clear, crisp image! This image took three passes to complete.

Summer Card with the Precision Press Advanced by Nancy Damiano for We R Memory Keepers

The Precision Press Advanced is also key when stamping sentiments. Here I used it to place two layers of embossing ink on the cardstock. The extra layer of ink results in a bolder title.

This is what the card looks like completed. It took just an hour to create this intricate look with the Precision Press Advanced. It lined up perfectly every single time and made for a quick and easy process!

Handmade Gift Ideas with the Precision Press Advanced

Hello WeR fans and welcome back to the blog today! It’s Chantalle with you, to share some ideas using the all-new Advanced Precision Press stamping platform. If you are a fan of stamping then let me tell you, this is a must-have tool. I’m not the world’s biggest stamper by any means, but I have quite a few because they look so darn cute. I spent a couple of nights playing with this platform, and by the end of them, I was absolutely hooked!

Handmade Gifts with the Precision Press Advanced by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers featuring Vicki Boutin stamps and rubons

The Press can be used on it’s own, as a base for freehand stamping or pop on an extra press plate for layered stamping!

Handmade Gifts with the Precision Press Advanced by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers featuring Vicki Boutin stamps and rubons
This floral encouragement card was created using two techniques, which I will go into detail with you below.

Handmade Gifts with the Precision Press Advanced by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers featuring Vicki Boutin stamps and rubons

First, I experimented with a watercolour technique. My watercolour paper was held in place with the magnets provided in the packaging. Unfortunately, during transit, mine broke so I found a great little tip online of holding the bits in place with some strong binding tape. (The tape actually also makes them easier to pick up off the paper so it’s worth a go if you struggle with that kind of thing.) Next, I arranged where I wanted the stamps to go, on my paper. I placed the acrylic plate over the top and picked up the stamps. I then coloured in areas of the stamp with some Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers. After that, they had a quick little spritz with some water and then I positioned the acrylic plate onto the pegs and pressed down to stamp.

The image revealed was very subtle, but that’s the beauty of a stamping platform – you can keep going back to an area until you have a perfect impression!

I built up layers of colour until I was happy with the result and then used my Detail Scissors to cut the flowers out.

Handmade Gifts with the Precision Press Advanced by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers featuring Vicki Boutin stamps and rubons

The background of the card is this beautiful, moody Hawthorne paper by Heidi Swapp. I’ve positioned my same Vicki Boutin flower stamps over the paper and picked them up again with the acrylic plate. Now as you can see from the image, my stamps are hanging a bit off my paper. I wanted the flowers to bleed off the edge so I popped a piece of scrap paper underneath the patterned paper to catch any excess ink.

I used Versamark for my impression and then covered the area with white embossing powder which I heat set.

Handmade Gifts with the Precision Press Advanced by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers featuring Vicki Boutin stamps and rubons

The contrast between the dark papers, white embossing and pops of bright watercolour turned out so nicely. I’ve used some gorgeous Coral Bazzill cardstock and paired it with another Vicki Boutin stamped sentiment as well as a Heidi Swapp Hawthorne die cut shape.

Handmade Gifts with the Precision Press Advanced by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers featuring Vicki Boutin stamps and rubons

The next project I created is this mixed media piece of art. You might remember I created a similar piece a few months ago… My friend at work really loved it and it’s her birthday coming up, so I created this version for her. It was so much fun to create and I can’t wait to give it to her!

Handmade Gifts with the Precision Press Advanced by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers featuring Vicki Boutin stamps and rubons
As you can imagine, there are lots and lots of yummy details to take in on this piece. The focal point is that beautiful drawn lady which is from a Jane Davenport paper pad. I love the figures she draws. This young lady has been given a few slicks of watercolour paint and a bit of detail with some delicate Vicki Boutin Rub Ons.

Handmade Gifts with the Precision Press Advanced by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers featuring Vicki Boutin stamps and rubons

My Precision Press Advanced came into play when trying to plan the layout of the image. Initally, I wanted to use a few Amy Tangerine die cut shapes, but there needed to be a large contrast between the sizes of things on the page. The background is brushed on watercolour and then I have placed some Vicki Boutin circular stamp shapes onto the paper. Because the side of the Press is open, you can use many size papers with it, which is great!

Handmade Gifts with the Precision Press Advanced by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers featuring Vicki Boutin stamps and rubons

When I was happy with the stamping, I ran some gorgeous gold art screen ink over a woodgrain texture Heidi Swapp art screen.

Next came some texture paste and a bit more paint as well as lots of finer details like some circles cut with my fave Circle Clear Cut Punch out. These have also been given a bit of watercolour treatment. Other details are things like gold leave (all the heart eyes!!) as well as some rub ons.

My final little gift idea is this mini travel notebook/journal. Now I’ve got to give credit to a friend of mine who has taken a bit of inspiration from us scrappers! He whipped up heaps of these little notebooks and gave them to all of us as work, which I thought was pretty awesome.

Handmade Gifts with the Precision Press Advanced by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers featuring Vicki Boutin stamps and rubons

I’ve used the same principal of a simple folded 6×7 inch piece of paper (a sturdier one is best like good quality patterned paper or cardstock) then rounded the edges with my ever-faithful WRMK Crop A Dile Corner Chomper and decorated the cover using my Advanced Precision Press.

Folding the paper was so easy thanks to the adorable new Mini Score Board. It’s lightweight and perfect for smaller projects like this one and very compact so you can keep it close to hand in your craft space.

Handmade Gifts with the Precision Press Advanced by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers featuring Vicki Boutin stamps and rubons

The starburst shape has been embossed with Zing Gold Glitter Embossing Powder.

This notebook has a simple staple finish holding the sheets of paper together. I’ve  used a marker and coloured mine black so they don’t stand out as much on the patterned paper.

Handmade Gifts with the Precision Press Advanced by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers featuring Vicki Boutin stamps and rubons

I use this type of notebook for so many things like shopping lists, or quick ideas as well as keeping a note of what craft supplies I use on projects. So handy and super easy to put together!

Handmade Gifts with the Precision Press Advanced by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers featuring Vicki Boutin stamps and rubons

Thanks again for stopping by. One could go even further by stamping on plain wrapping/brown paper to make custom designs and create matching envelopes for cards with the Envelope Punch Board then customize it with the Precision Press! Perhaps you might consider one of these ideas for your gift giving. Until next time, happy crafting!

Scrapbook Page with the Precision Press Advanced

Hello, We R Memory Keepers friends and fans. Becki here to share a layout with you that I created with the brand-new Precision Press Advanced. Stamping isn’t my forte, so I’m always thrilled to work with a stamping tool. The brand-new Precision Press advanced makes me look like a pro when it comes to stamping.  I decided to create an 8 ½ x 11 layout with a selfie.

Precision Press Advanced Scrapbook Page by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers featuring Vicki Boutin stamps

 

I knew I wanted a lot of flowers cascading down the page from top to bottom with the photo nestled in the middle. The first step to creating this layout was stamping several flowers. The Precision Press Advanced is perfect for stamping multiples of one stamp. I used a piece of 12×12 smooth cardstock to create the flowers. I was able to rotate the paper so that I could get many flowers on one piece of cardstock. The removeable acrylic block makes stamping on 12 x 12 patterned papers a breeze.

Precision Press Advanced Scrapbook Page by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers featuring Vicki Boutin stamps

After I stamped the flowers, I colored them with water-based markers and a water brush. When the flowers were dry, I cut them out with the new spring scissors. I LOVE these scissors! They make fussy cutting SO easy.

Precision Press Advanced Scrapbook Page by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers featuring Vicki Boutin stamps

When the flowers were ready to adhere to the layout I adhered the photo first and added the flowers around the photo. I started at the top and worked my way down and around the left side of the photo.

Precision Press Advanced Scrapbook Page by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers featuring Vicki Boutin stamps

The rest of the layout came together so easily! I’ve been doing a LOT of hidden journaling on tags lately. Using a tag for the journaling has become a fun technique for me because of the Tag Punch Board.

Precision Press Advanced Scrapbook Page by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers featuring Vicki Boutin stamps

It wouldn’t be a layout for me if I don’t do a little bit of stitching. I LOVE using the Stitch Happy machine because I love the look of thicker thread. On this layout, I did a simple straight stitch around the edge of the layout.

Thank you for stopping by the We R Memory Keepers blog. I’d love to see what you’re creating with the Precision Press Advanced stamping tool. If you’re like me, using the Precision Press Advanced is a game changer. You’ll love this tool!

Wire Wedding Cake Topper

Hello We R friends, and happy Friday! It’s either that time of year or there must be something in the water here, because we have gotten no less than five wedding invitations in the past month! Exciting, right? Needless to say, I’ve had weddings on the brain. Recently I saw some adorable wire wedding cake toppers, so I thought I’d try my hand at making my own with my Happy Jig to see what I could come up with.

Wire Wedding Cake Topper by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Happy Jig wire design tool

I love how this turned out! I think a wire wedding cake topper looks pretty cool, don’t you?

Wire Wedding Cake Topper by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Happy Jig wire design tool

So, obviously this design is my own creation–it’s not in the Happy Jig instruction manual or on our @werhappyjig Instagram feed, so I’ll show you how I made it. The cake I placed it in is about 8 inches in diameter and the topper is about 10 inches long. I’m not exactly sure how much wire I used, but I started out with 6 yards of THIS copper (or I like to call it rose gold) wire and ended up with more than half of it left.

Because of the length of this wire cake topper I did it in three parts, moving each part off the jig and making the next section. I started with the word “Mr” and the post for sticking the topper in the cake. Here’s a picture of that section of the design. Since I wasn’t sure how much wire I would need when I started, I didn’t cut any of the 6 yard roll until I was finished.

Happy Jig wire design tool by We R Memory Keepers

I’ve found it pretty easy to use the design templates found in the instruction booklet and on the Instagram feed to piece together custom words. I’ve also discovered that I can enlarge the letters by just raising the tops of them on the grid of the jig. That’s basically how I created the word “Mr.” Then I extended the leftover wire down about 8 inches and wrapped it back up on itself to create the post.

Wire Wedding Cake Topper by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Happy Jig wire design tool

Next, I used the instruction booklet that comes with the tool to create the ampersand sign. That part was pretty easy!

Happy Jig wire design tool by We R Memory Keepers

Once I comleted the ampersand, I finished up my topper with the word “Mrs” and a little heart I borrowed from the word “love” on our @werhappyjig Instagram feed.

Here are a couple of tips I picked up while creating this project:

  1. Have a pair of needle nose pliers on hand in case you need to undo your design. It will help to straighten your wire so it looks more neat and tidy.
  2. Plan ahead or make your own template beforehand (grab a blank one on our Instagram feed). The more you bend and straighten the wire, the harder it can be to keep your creation looking neat.
  3. Once you’ve finished creating your design, lay it down on a hard smooth surface and press it flat to straighten everything out.
  4. Once you’ve set the pegs on the jig, use some yarn or twine to test out your design before winding the wire around.
  5. Don’t be afraid to visit Pinterest or Instagram for ideas–wire design is pretty popular right now so you’re sure to find some inspiration

Throwback Thursday: Boxed Wedding Invitation

We’re still big fans of this gorgeous boxed wedding invitation Kimberly created for a beach themed wedding. We just love the embossing details and the stunning acetate envelope filled with confetti! Learn how to make it below.

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a fun way to send a wedding invitation. Wedding invitations are the first impression guests will get of your upcoming wedding.  Creating a unique and memorable invitation is easy with a few tools and supplies from We R Memory Keepers.

boxed wedding invitation Kimberly Crawford

Before starting the invitation, I looked at my 1-2-3 Punch Board size chart to see what size envelopes I could possibly create. When I chose the 5” x 7.5” envelope, I was ready to begin making my invitation. I printed my information out onto specialty paper. On the back, I layered a piece of gold paper for an elegant touch.

boxed wedding invitation 8 Kimberly Crawford

Because this will be a destination wedding, at a beach, I thought using the Next Level Embossing Folder Wave would be a fantastic touch of texture. The embossing folder is not long enough to emboss the whole piece of cardstock, so I embossed one half and then the other. Where the two edges meet, the ridges will be covered up by the front and back panels of cardstock.

boxed wedding invitation 3 Kimberly Crawford

The envelope for this invitation is where the whole idea started. I knew I could create an envelope that would be like a box, with tall sides.  The 1-2-3 Punch Board makes it very easy to create. Using a sheet of Clearly Posh Acetate, I punched and scored the envelope according to the directions.

boxed wedding invitation 2 Kimberly Crawford

Once the sides were adhered together, I placed the invitation inside. Because the envelope is like a box, I have space to add fun touches like DIY Party Confetti, or even small shells.

To close the invitation, I used a gold foil sticker.  Topped with a small sea shell, the look is complete.

You can see the sides of the envelope and how it holds everything beautifully!

Tips for mass producing wedding invitations:

  • Gather your fiancé, friends, and family and make fun afternoon of creating!
  • Gather all the supplies you will need first, make sure you have enough paper, supplies, and adhesives. Be sure and have extras on hand for when mistakes happen.
  • Create each part of the invitation all at once. Print all the invitations. Cut all the papers. Score all the lines, etc. You can give each job to one person.

Letterpress Wedding Card

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here and it is wedding season. There is something about making a wedding card that makes you want to create something full of elegance and texture. Using a couple tools from We R Memory Keepers, I was able to easily make a gorgeous card for someone’s special day.

Letterpress Wedding Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Nothing says elegance to me like letterpress. The Evolution creates a deep and beautiful impession, simply.

Letterpress Wedding Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To the floral letterpress plate, I added silver ink. This ink is a pigment formula ink, meaning it will stay wetter longer, which is what is needed for the best results when creating this look. I placed my paper over the top of the inked plate, set that inside the letterpress platform, and passed it through the Evolution. (Use the Letterpress setting on the side of the machine. Its one easy turn of the knob for the correct pressure.)

Letterpress Wedding Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

With a few turns of the handle, I was able to make this cardstock truly fabulous. Look at the embossing and how the silver shimmers inside of it.

Letterpress Wedding Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To reinforce the theme of the day, I used the Happy Jig to create the word love from silver wire. All the pegs and a pair of wire cutters are included in the Happy Jig and I love that they all store inside the tool.

We R Memory Keepers Happy Jig

The instructions for creating the word love are in the book enclosed with the Happy Jig. (If you are looking for more patterns, be sure and check out the We R Happy Jig Instagram account for more ideas and designs.)

To adhere the wire word to my card, I applied a strong glue to the back of the wire.

Wedding Table Decor

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva on the blog today sharing with you a wedding table decoration made with the Happy Jig  and that can be used for any party.

Wedding Table Decor by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

For this assignment I decided to make place holders and a table number sign, I used the lovely papers from the Journaling stack from DCWV, the colors and prints are perfect for a wedding!

To make the place holder choose your favorite image from the Happy Jig catalog (or one of the many designs you can find on their Instagram account @werhappyjig) leave 5 or 6 extra inches in the beginning and create your form.

Cut the wire and use the extra wire to make a circular base.

Use your Mini Envelope Punch Board to make 2 x 2 ¾ inch envelopes and place them on your wire design.

Write the name of the receiver on the back of the envelope.

Inside the envelope you can include a thank you note, a picture or a small gift!

To create the table number sign use the Happy Jig to create the word “table”. Here are the Happy Jig coordinates in case you want to make one:

Start: I14
Big Pegs: O4
Medium Pegs:I3, J10, M11, M24, O10, P17, P22, P26
Small Pegs: G7, H16, H21, N18, P13, Q9

We R Memory Keepers Happy Jig

Use your Trim and Score Board to make the sign. Mine was 5 ¾ inches wide and 8 ¼ inches tall. I wanted my Table word to stand up on the sign so I attached it by making two holes with my Sticky Piercer.

We R Memory Keepers Trim and Score Board

To make the numbers I used the Journaling Stack by DCWV and my Alphabet Punch Board. I love the foil details on these papers!

And here’s how my sign turned out. I really like the paper and wire combo.

DIY Wedding Favor Boxes

Happy Monday! Laura here today to share with you how to create your own wedding favor boxes. These boxes can be easily customized to match your wedding colors. You can create them for a fraction of the cost of buying them premade. Plus, you can personalize them with any sentiment that fits your wedding theme!

Wedding Favor Boxes by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Start by cutting your cardstock to 10 ½ x 8 inches. Align the longer edge to the top of the score board. Score the paper at 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, and 10 inches.

We R Memory Keepers Basic Score Board

Rotate the paper 90 degrees and score at 2 and 6 inches. Use the score guide to line up one edge of your paper at an angle. Score an angled line coming down from each of the one-inch sections. Score the lines on one side, flip the paper over and do the other side, so you end up with two triangle shaped score lines at the bottom of the sides of the box.

You can see where to score the paper in the image below.

We R Memory Keepers Basic Score Board

Cut off the pieces shown below using your scissors. You will trim off the top and bottom sections where you scored the half inch line. You will also cut off along the top score line, leaving only a 3 inch by 2-inch rectangle. Then, cut along the two-inch, 5 inch, and 7-inch score lines, just to the bottom horizontal line.

We R Memory Keepers Basic Score Board

Fold along all the score lines and assemble your box using double sided adhesive, leaving the top flap open.

We R Memory Keepers Basic Score Board

Use the Corner Chomper scallop edge punch to punch each corner of the top flap.

We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper

Fold the top flap into the inside of the box and use the Crop-A-Dile to punch two holes close to the each edge of the box.

We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile

Create a heart shaped embellishment using patterned paper and the clear cut heart punch.

We R Memory Keepers Clear Cut Heart Punch

Use the ampersand from the Rise & Shine embossing folders to emboss the shape onto the heart using the Evolution Advanced. I used a sanding block to distress the edges of the embossed “&” to make it stand out a little more.

Wedding Favor Boxes by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

 

Thread ribbon out through the holes in the back of the box and then in through the front flap holes. Attach the heart shape and tie the ribbon in a bow.

Wedding Favor Boxes by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

You can create these boxes in any color or design that fits your wedding theme. You can choose a different embossed accent for the heart shape or even add your monogram or names to the front of the bags using a stamp or a sticker. Then simply fill the bag with the treat of your choice.

Graduation Party Favor Idea

Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here with you today to share a new tutorial for a graduation party favor using some of my favorite tools!

Graduation Party Favor by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

To make this little cute graduation box, I used the wonderful 1-2-3 Punch Board that I LOVE ! The possibilities are endless with this board, above all when it comes to creating party favors! As this box measures 3 ¼ inches so the paper had to measure 10 inches (according to the instructions on the board).

I also used the Clear Cut Punch to create a little window so we can see the marshmallows through it. Love this frame shape and this punch is very easy to place thanks to the magnetic system! The window is made out of a little waterfall photo sleeve that I glued with the USB Power Tool Mini Glue Gun.

Now that the box is finished, I played with my Happy Jig and some rose gold wire to make the word “yay”. I followed the instructions in the book to shape the “y” and the “a” like in the “happy” word.

We now have to make the hat and tassle part to finish the graduation favor! The steps are very easy and the result is awesome! I cut a 4 ¼ inches square paper with my Trim & Score Board and another one in a light white cardboard with my Supreme Ruler and Precision Knife. I glued them together.
