Patriotic Banner with the Mini Alphabet Punch Board

Hey there We R Memory Keeper friends and fans, Becki here, to share a really fun, really easy patriotic banner with the mini alphabet punch board. True confession time, this is the first time I’ve played with the Mini Alphabet Punch Board. I can honestly say that I had so much fun playing with it and that it wasn’t nearly as confusing as I thought it would be. I dug into my stash of patterned papers and embellishments to find some red, white, and blue supplies. I found the “America the Beautiful” collection from Pebbles. Of course, this is the perfect collection for this project.

The “USA” letters are the first thing I cut out with the dark wood grain patterned paper. It only takes a few minutes to punch/cut each letter. Then, I cut the banner shapes with the Banner Punch Board (one of my favorite tools). Each banner piece is 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. The banner punch board makes cutting out pieces for a banner a breeze!

After cutting all the pieces out, I was ready to assemble the banner. I used pop dots to adhere the letters and some of the stickers to the banner pieces. Each banner piece is a little bit different. The banner is put together with a thin piece of rope. The knot at either end of the banner not only keeps the banner pieces from falling off but it adds a fun textural element to the finished banner.

Patriotic Pinwheel Cake Topper

Hello We R friends, and Happy Monday! It’s Aly here, and this week on the blog we’re featuring patriotic projects from our design team to inspire your 4th of July crafting. If you’ve got a barbeque, party or other patriotic event, then be sure to check back each day this week for some fabulous ideas!

Today I’m sharing a festive cake topper idea for an Independence Day party. To make this cake topper, I pulled out an oldie but goodie, the Pinwheel Punch Board.

Patriotic Pinwheel Cake Topper by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers
For extra dimension, I made the pinwheels out of Bazzill Basics Plastic Embossing Sheets and embossed them with some Next Level Embossing Folders, and the Evolution Advanced.

I used the Pinwheel Attachments so that the pinwheels can actually spin, adding a fun interactive element to the cake topper.

Patriotic Pinwheel Cake Topper by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

To make this Patriotic Pinwheel Cake Topper, I started by gathering my supplies.

I trimmed two red and two blue 3×3 squares, two red and two blue 4×4 squares, and one red and one blue 5×5 square. I punched each corner as explained in the instructions, and then cut all the red squares using the Pinwheel A track.

Then I punched the corners of each blue square, and cut them using the Pinwheel B track.

Then I embossed each pinwheel using some Next Level Embossing Folders and my Evolution Advanced.

I layered the red squares on top of the blue squares, interlocking the pinwheel arms, and then followed the instructions to assemble the attachment pieces. Once assembled, I added an Enamel Dot to the attachment cap for a finished look and placed a paper straw into the attachment base.

I trimmed off the ends of the paper straws at different lengths for a layered look, and inserted them into the center of the cake.

Stitch Happy Scrapbook Page

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here. I’ve been a paper crafter for a very long time, but any stitching you may have seen on my projects was done by my mom with her machine. I have no idea how to sew; at least, that was the case before I got the Stitch Happy and spent time watching the YouTube instructional videos. I may still be a beginner, but this machine made my latest layout extra special:

Stitch Happy Scrapbook Page by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

How adorable are these scallop-stitched journaling lines? It’s a simple technique, but great for this novice sewer. In no time at all I added texture and whimsy to my layout while giving the journaling that special “something”.

Stitch Happy Scrapbook Page by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

The machine was oh-so-easy to thread with this lovely Sew Happy pink thread. I love the thickness of the thread, which helped to make my scallops stand out from the background patterned paper.

Stitch Happy Scrapbook Page by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

I will share a lesson that I learned since I can’t possibly be the only beginner out there, right? I wanted the scallops to face the way that you see here, but I assembled the rest of my page before sewing. That means that the top of my layout, with all those layers, needed to flex under the arm of the machine in order for my stitching to go where I wanted it. Had my layers been more stiff, it could have been a problem, but I lucked out. Next time, if I’m being picky about the orientation of the scallops, I’ll stitch first and assemble later.

Stitch Happy Scrapbook Page by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

I’m feeling pretty good about my first attempt at machine stitching on a layout, and it’s all thanks to the Stitch Happy! As beginner friendly as this machine is, I don’t think I’ll get bored of using it as my skills increase. I can’t wait to learn more!

Handmade Cards with the Stitch Happy

Hello and welcome, Chantalle with you today! I’d love to share some cards I have created with the help of my amazing new Stitch Happy Sewing Machine. Gone are my days of adding stitching detail by hand to get a bolder effect. Being able to sew with multimedia threads like baker’s twine is a serious game changer!

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I’ve used the Stitch Happy Card Kit, and added stitching to create different effects on these three cards.

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The kit contains 61 pieces in all… Ten cards with envelopes and 35 pieces of ephemera – Plenty to create gorgeous layered cards! I love adding stitching to my projects as it just adds that touch of texture and detail. You can imagine my excitement when I saw that the multimedia threads came in metallic options – AH-MAZING!

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

This birthday card has a sweet mini banner as an embellishment across the front.

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I started out with the sea green/aqua watermark print card and ran it through my Evolution Advanced with a stitched heart embossing folder by Amy Tangerine. I’ve chosen to use a landscape orientation for this one so my banner could have a bit more space to spread out across the front. I then chose some felt circles and cardstock heart die cuts from the Stitch Happy Card Kit and after layering them, I ran them through the sewing machine, leaving a few stitches in between to create a banner. (You can see from the middle photo, how I have left a little gap between where one circle ended and another begins to be fed under the foot.)

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The white multimedia thread really pops against the pink background! TIP: You could use this same method to create hanging banners as well!

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The wood grain print card makes use of the more natural shades in the kit. Another great thing about this kit is that it contains both masculine and feminine elements, so you have lots to work with! The letter ‘I’ has been fashioned from an “L” which comes in the kit (originally spelling ‘HELLO’) I have just snipped off the bottom of the letter to create a capital ‘L’.

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

A fantastic feature of the Stitch Happy Sewing Machine is that it has a built in drawer for storage on the right hand side. Very handy for keeping your favourite shades of thread closehand!

The detail on this card has been enhanced by running lines of stitching, using the woodgrain lines as a guide, at intervals along the front of the card. NOTE: It’s a great idea to hide stitching inside a card by covering it with a piece of paper trimmed to size and adhered over the stitching. This creates a nice neat finish inside.

Stitch Happy by We R Memory Keepers

This ‘Shine’ card has a few metallic star bursts with the help of some shimmering Metallic Gold Multimedia Thread. This thread also comes in silver as well! NOTE: Remember to switch out your needle to a number 18 when using this thread weight.

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I traced where I wanted the star bursts to be around my die cut star shapes from the card kit and then went about creating the little lines. TIP: It’s a good idea to backstitch when you are doing such short lines to prevent your stitching coming loose.

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The large cork star is from a Heidi Swapp Minc Starter kit. I used the Minc Reactive Paint to activate the bottom half of the star and then ran it through my Minc Machine with Matte Gold Reactive Foil. I’ve never tried foiling cork before, so it may be slightly wonky, lol, but I do love the slightly distressed look the cork provides.

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I have absolutely no doubt you are going to be amazed by this clever sewing machine. Fabric… paper…. The opportunities to create are limitless!

Cactus Home Decor with the Stitch Happy

Hi everybody! Soraya here with you today to show you a cute and fun tutorial using the incredible Stitch Happy sewing machine. And I can tell you that the simple fact of using it will surely make you happy!

Cactus Home Decor with the Stitch Happy sewing machine by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

So to show you how amazing is this multimedia sewing machine, I made a cactus frame decor for my daughter’s bedroom using felt, fabrics, papers and some colorful threads and twines.

Stitch Happy sewing machine by We R Memory Keepers

First of all, I used my Supreme Ruler to cut the black felt in the right dimensions so it can fit the background of the frame (I removed the glass for this project).

Supreme Ruler by We R Memory Keepers

Then I used one of the cards from the Stitch Happy Card Kit and the DIY Party Board to create the pocket where all the different cactus will “grow”.

DIY Party Board by We R Memory Keepers

In this card kit, there are also lots of happy diecuts to decorate so I grabbed the bike and stitched it to the pocket with some pink thread. The result is awesome!  After that I sewed the pocket directly on the black felt which is now the background of the frame decor.

To set the title “HELLO” I put some washi tape on the letters so that they can stay in place. I removed the washi tape just after the sewing process.

Let’s draw the cactus! I used different shades of green fabrics to make them.  They are so delicate and cute, I love how they turned!

Then I started to sew them all with some yellow thread! For the big cactus on the front, I used the “back” button of the sewing machine to create the needles and it worked very well!

Stitch Happy Mini Album

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva here showing you how to use your Stitch Happy sewing machine and Stitch Happy Card Kit to make a lovely mini album.

Stitch Happy Mini Album by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

When I saw the Stitch Happy Card Kit I knew it would be perfect for a mini album. In the kit you get different card designs, die cuts and even felt! All perfectly coordinated to make your job really easy.

I started by trimming some of my cards to 4 inch height. I used 3 cards for my mini album, one for the cover and two for the inside pages.

Stitch Happy Mini Album by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

Because I didn’t want my stitches to show on the back side of the card I created some 4×4 inch white squares and decorated them with some twine and thread from the Stitch Happy collection. I used mint baker’s twine, pink, citrine and gold.

Stitch Happy Mini Album by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I really like the thickness of the threads, your stitches stand out from the page and the scallop decorative stitch is absolutely lovely!

Stitch Happy Mini Album by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

To assemble the mini album I cut my cover in half and added a floral paper in the center using the zig zag stitch and the gold thread (this way the cover was a bit wider) Next, I stitched each page slightly off the center of the cover. The mini album was a bit thick but the Stitch Happy Machine had absolutely no problem! No more broken needles or thread!

Stitch Happy Mini Album by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I had fun decorating all the pages of my mini album, the golden thread added a nice touch. To decorate I used  the die cuts that came with the Card Kit and some wood veneers and die cuts from the Take Me Away Collection by Pink Paislee.

Stitch Happy Mini Album by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I used the decorative stitches to create different backgrounds like the scallop page you see below.

Stitch Happy Mini Album by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

With the Stitch Happy Machine you can easily add felt, fabric and even leather to your projects!

Here are some of the other pages of my mini album.

Necktie Gift Boxes

Laura here today with a fun treat packaging idea for Father’s Day featuring the 123 Punch Board and the Banner Punch Board. These little necktie gift box envelopes would be perfect to surprise dad with a bunch of photos, a gift card, or any little thin treat!

Necktie Gift Box by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

To create the gift box envelope, you will need your 1-2-3 Punch Board. I wanted the envelope to be able to hold 4 x 6 inch photographs, so I followed the guides on the punch board to create an envelope that would fit that size card.

You will start by lining up your trimmed paper at the punch guide. Then, score the paper on both the A and B envelope score lines.

123 Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

Rotate your paper 90⁰ and line up score line A with the envelope score groove. Score both the A and B lines again. Repeat this process until you have punched and scored all four sides.

Use the corner rounder to punch all four corners of the envelope. Fold all the score lines and assemble the envelope with adhesive.

Necktie Gift Box by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

To create the necktie you will need the Banner Punch Board. Start by trimming your necktie paper to 2 inches wide. Then, use the banner punch board to cut a V shape at the bottom of the paper as if you were going to make a small crest banner using the cutting guide at the top.

Necktie Gift Box by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

 

Trim your paper to 5 ½ inches long. Using the guides on the banner punch board turn the top of your tie sideways and align it with the horizontal blue 8 line and the vertical white 2 ½ line. Cut a notch from the side of the tie. Repeat this process on the opposite side.

Necktie Gift Box by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Use a scrap piece of necktie cardstock and cut notches in the top of 2 inch strip, like we did with the tie piece. Cut the scrap horizontally where the notches make a v-shape. Attach this to the top of the necktie with adhesive. This makes it look like the tie has the extra little knotted piece at the top.

Necktie Gift Box by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Attach the tie to the envelope with adhesive and you are ready for gift giving. You could embellish these even further with the word Dad, Father, Grandpa, or even your special guy’s name.

Father’s Day Gift Idea: Photo Lights Tray

Hello Chantalle here, welcoming you to the blog.

Father’s Day is a special time to celebrate the amazing men in our lives. My DH has been an incredible support to me, especially this year, and the kids and I can’t wait to spoil him.

I’ve created two looks for a simple gift idea that you could put together with your children for Dad. It comprises of some items that you might already have in your stash, as well as some Photolights.

Whether they are an automobile enthusiast or a sports fan, I’m sure these will go down a treat!

Father' Day Gift Tray by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

The first tray is both decorative and useful. Both ideas use a lightly altered canvas as a base with a Photolight attached. You can choose to adhere the light to the base or keep it free standing so Dad can take his special backlit gift with him.

You may also be lucky enough to find a canvas with a recess the same size as your Photolight. (If I had an accurate sanding device, I would’ve tried to sand down the wood a bit in order to insert the light inside the canvas recess.) Mounting the light inside the tray would make a great solid base onto which you can build. Instead, I’ve used some semi-permanent sticky dots to adhere my light to my canvas.

Father' Day Gift Tray by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

As you can see in the image below, I covered the canvas with some woodgrain print paper. I’ve used a sheet of 12×12 paper from my Typecast Paper Pad, as the weight is slightly lighter and was easier to manipulate over the canvas, which was 8 x 10 inches.

I started on the one edge, then ran the paper over the recess area, not the canvas area, before cutting out the area of the paper where it covered the recess.

The wooden section of the canvas that is still visible from the top, has been covered with some woodgrain washi tape, which I had in my stash. I now had a perfect little inexpensive tray, ready to be filled!

Father' Day Gift Tray by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

The car blueprint is a laser print of a stock image, which I downloaded. The white areas work very well, lit from behind. You could use a bike or plane or a boat… the options are endless!

Father' Day Gift Tray by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

With the image in place and the magnetic acrylic plate placed over it, I went about adding a few small touches to the frame in the form of some chipboard Thickers.

Father' Day Gift Tray by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

The tray now serves as a bedside storage area for Dad’s personal items as well as giving off a gentle glow when lit up!

Father' Day Gift Tray by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

The next tray gives Dad official permission to put his feet up! I’ve used the same tray principle and applied it in the form of a mini hamper. Armed with a few tasty snacks and 100% access to the remote, Dad will love his time out to watch the game!

Father' Day Gift Tray by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

I measured the size I needed for my 8×8 Photolights frame and set some text over a sweet image of our kiddos. This was then printed off onto some Photolights Printable Backlit Paper.

Father' Day Gift Tray by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

NB: When using this paper, remember to print on the more matte side, as the ink will not stick to the shinier side.

Father' Day Gift Tray by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

Use batteries or the USB power source (provided), to switch the light on and show Dad just how much you love him this Father’s Day.

Summer Planner Spread with the Planner Punch Board

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here. One of my favorite new releases from We R Memory Keepers is the Planner Punch Board. The idea of being able to punch a variety of holes into pieces that I could then add into any kind planner made me get excited about a coil-bound Heidi Swapp planner that I had. Here it is all set up for the beginning of summer:

Planner Punch Board Summer Pages by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

I used Crate Paper’s Oasis collection to embellish my pages, including these small cards from the ephemera pack. I wanted to use the back side of the cards for journaling, but in a way that I could easily flip them over to read.

Planner Punch Board Summer Pages by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

All I had to do was use the Planner Punch Board to punch holes that coordinated with the coils of my planner and viola! Instant custom inserts!

Planner Punch Board Summer Pages by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

I stamped key words on the cards and filled the letters with watercolor. I wouldn’t have used watercolors on the planner pages because they are too thin. Thanks to the Planner Punch board, I can add in special pieces from time to time that feature techniques or elements I wouldn’t normally use in my planner.

Planner Punch Board Summer Pages by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

Are you prepping the summer months in your planner? Here are some other ideas for add-ins using the Planner Punch Board:

  • ticket stubs
  • library reading program charts
  • menus
  • community pool schedules
  • ice cream coupons

Whether you’re planning ahead or documenting what happened, your planner is especially useful when you use the Planner Punch Board. Happy summer planning!

Summer Bucket List Mini Album

Hey there We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here to share an easy and fun Summer Bucket list mini album that I created using the Tab Punch board. Not only did I use the Tab Punch Board on this project but I also used the brand new Planner Punch Board AND the Typecast Typewriter. I can’t even tell you how excited I am to have this Summer bucket list mini album almost done before Summer even starts. Summer seems to fly by! I’ve found that the more I can get done before Summer officially hits, the better.
Summer Bucket List Mini Album by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers
This album came together within an hour because of the awesome WRMK tools that I had to create with. The album measures about 5″x7″. The three tabs in the album are labeled with strips of white cardstock. On each strip of cardstock I used my Typecast typewriter to type the title of each section of the mini album.
Summer Bucket List Mini Album by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers
The three sections are “family”, “food”, and “fun”. I’ve found that when I have labels on my tabs they need to be very well adhered. Which is why I stapled each label into place. While our family doesn’t have a very specific Summer Bucket list we do know that we want our Summer to include these three things. Inside the album I left plenty of space for journaling and photos.
Summer Bucket List Mini Album by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

When I had the pages of the album complete, I used the Planner Punch board to punch the holes for the black binder rings. The Planner punch board worked great! I will be using the planner punch board for all my mini albums in the future! I love how easy it was to use.
