How to Keep Your Craft Room Organized

Hello everybody! Soraya here today to talk about a very important issue: how to store supplies and keep your craft area organized! Here are 3 tips just for you to store your washi tapes, your We R Tools and your mini paper pads.

Craft Room Storage Tips by Soraya Maes-1

When it comes to creating, you need to have your supplies well stored and organized to optimize your crafty time. You will spend more time having fun than searching for the right product/color/size…So here is my first tip to store your washi tape:

  1. Place them on the wall on thin wooden shelves
  2. Sort them by color/theme or rainbow color

I made these shelves with my husband from wooden plinths we had in store, and sprayed paint them in white. I could easily store more than 300 rolls in it! And it’s also very aesthetic for the look of my scraproom.

Concerning my mini paper pads, I love to have them stored in the Card and Craft Organizer from We R Memory Keepers. It’s easier to look inside and find the right patterns! It’s very handy with its dividers.

I keep all my essential tools in little pots on this big cake stand. I love the look of it and how it’s easy to pick any tool I need when I craft. In this kind of cake stand, you can store so many products. It’s very useful and totally handy as well!

Hello and Welcome! I´m Steffi and I´m sooo happy to be a part of this great Designteam for another year! I like to play with all the differnent tools from WRMK. I learned a lot new techniques and I´m very excited what the new year will bring. Thank you so much! Some words about me …  I live with my family in the south of Germany. In 2012 I started with scrapbooking, when my daughter was born. I searched in the internet for inspiration for a baby album and came across Scrapbooking. I was surprised about all the different techniques and what it is possible to do with paper and tools. I started with mini albums. That is my great passion! I love to create books about our memories. In addition, I also like to make layouts. There I can live out my creative ideas. Beside scrapbooking I also like to make decorations. At home I am also creative together with my daughter. She has the passion of me. I have infected her. That is so beautiful.I also teach Scrapbook Workshops. I like to meet other people who share the same passion for craft and scrapbooking.

Currently…

 Eating? Oh what I like to eat these days? Over the holidays, I ate all kinds of things. But preferably anything with potatoes and pasta.

Watching? I’m a big TV series fan. At the moment I watch all Friends episodes again. This is always done while clearing out the many moving boxes. By the way, we have moved and I am still unpacking boxes. There is no end to that.

Creating? Right now I’m about to put in my new scrapping room. That’s why I haven’t done a lot of creative things in the last few weeks. But I hope that I can finally start the next days again. I miss being very creative.

Listening to? Only music. But the most time movie soundtracks. My fav´s!!

Reading? Since planning our new home, I read a lot of books about interior design. I liked it very much. And in the evening I like to read blog post from some of my favorite bloggers.

Rebecca Luminarias

wrmk_headshot_2020Craft_Space_by_Rebecca_Luminarias_01

I live in Southern California with my husband (Arvin) and 2 young children (Augustus & Anemone). My crafting obsession is gift wrap & tags; I love to create my own, but I also enjoy seeing how others turn a plain box into a work of art. I’m an introvert who craves quiet alone time, but I also enjoy being around close friends and my family. I have a pretty active imagination which is a benefit in my creative endeavors.

I used to write a lot, using my crazy imagination to construct fictional stories, but eventually, that gave way to a new creative endeavor—being crafty!  When I began making cards 14 years ago, it was apparent that it was going to more than just a hobby, and while the process of turning it into a full-time job took some time, I’m so happy I get to do what I love every day.

(Bio is in English and Spanish)
Hola yo soy Fanni Mayo, diseñadora gráfica apasionada por el papel, los detalles bonitos, los planners y las celebraciones. Tengo 30 años y estoy casada con mi scrapbookmen, quien me acompaña siempre en cada locura. Desde hace 8 años descubrí el mundo del scrapbook y quedé completamente enamorada, fue amor a primera vista. Desde niña siempre me gustaron las manualidades, probé de todo, desde tarjetería española hasta bordado y tejido, pero el scrapbooking me atrapó. El día de hoy crear con papel es parte de mi vida diaria ya que gracias a esta pasión  pude emprender mi mayor sueño que se llama Alegra en donde junto con mi equipo formado por mi esposo, hermana y mi cuñado realizamos con todo tipo de herramientas de scrapbooking detalles para celebraciones especiales completamente personalizados. Es maravilloso compartir todos los días con personas que les apasiona lo mismo que tu, por lo que no sentimos que estamos trabajando.

Hi, I’m Fanni Mayo, a graphic designer passionate about paper, beautiful details, planners and celebrations. I am 30 years old and I am married to my scrapbookmen, who always accompanies me in every madness. For 8 years I discovered the world of scrapbook and I was completely in love, it was love at first sight. Since I was a child I always liked crafts, I tried everything from Spanish cards to embroidery and weaving, but scrapbooking caught me. Today, creating with paper is part of my daily life because thanks to this passion I was able to embark on my biggest dream called Alegra, where together with my team formed by my husband, sister and brother-in-law we made all kinds of tools scrapbooking details for special celebrations completely customized. It is wonderful to share every day with people who are passionate about the same as you, so we do not feel that we are working.

Me gusta mucho compartir lo que he aprendido de este maravilloso mundo del papel en talleres y expos, por lo que inicié subiendo tutoriales por el simple gusto de crear lazos de amistad con más personas que amen lo mismo que yo, me encanta tener amigas scraperas con quienes platicar sobre cualquier cosa del scrap, conocerlas en persona y desvirtualizarnos al abrazarnos para mi es lo mejor del mundo. Con paso del tiempo fui creciendo hasta tener mi propio canal de youtube donde más personas pueden conocer sobre la lindo del scrapbooking y poco a poco he ido creciendo también en mis redes sociales.

I really like to share what I have learned from this wonderful world of paper in workshops and expos, so I started uploading tutorials for the simple pleasure of creating friendships with more people who love the same as me, I love having scrapbook friends with who talk about anything about scrap, meet them in person and hugging for me is the best in the world. Over time I grew up to have my own YouTube channel where more people can learn about the beauty of scrapbooking and little by little I have also been growing in my social networks.

Todos tenemos un estilo especial que nos caracteriza, yo describo mi estilo como limpio pero lleno de color, me gusta mucho mezclar todo tipo de colores con texturas y formas para lograr un diseño limpio y ordenado, de manera que logres crear algo agradable a la vista. Soy Mexicana y vivo en Villahermosa Tabasco, por lo que todo lo que tenga que ver con el verano siempre será mi tema favorito, me gusta todo lo que tenga que ver con combinaciones de hojas, flores, rayas y mi textura favorita por siempre son los polkadots puedo vestirme del diario con esa textura y jamás me aburriré.

We all have a special style that characterizes us, I describe my style as clean but full of color, I really like to mix all kinds of colors with textures and shapes to achieve a clean and tidy design, so that you manage to create something pleasant to look at . I am Mexican and I live in Villahermosa Tabasco, so everything that has to do with summer will always be my favorite subject, I like everything that has to do with combinations of leaves, flowers, stripes and my favorite texture forever are the Polkadots I can wear everyday with that texture and I will never get bored.

Me siento muy honrada de estar en este equipo de diseño que desde hace tiempo era mi más grande sueño y ahora solo puedo decirles que los sueños si se cumplen. Gracias por ser parte de esta aventura, les mando muchos pero muchos besitos de papel.

I feel very honored to be in this design team that has long been my biggest dream and now I can only tell you that dreams do come true. Thank you for being part of this adventure, I send you many but many paper kisses.

New Years Eve Party Favors with the Foil Quill

New Years Eve Party Favors with the Foil Quill by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a fun treat to celebrate the end of not only 2019, but an entire decade! Snacks seem to be the way to my heart, so coming up with creative ways to make the packaging a little more heartfelt is always on my mind. Check out how I used the We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill and a few other tools to make a quick tag!

New Years Eve Party Favors with the Foil Quill by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

I began by typing out my wording in my digital die cutting machine software program. I adjusted the size of the text to fit my project and sent it to my machine. Keep in mind that you want to get your Foil Quill tool heating up for 5-10 minutes before you send your project to your machine. I find that if I plug it in as I sit down to work, that is plenty of time.

One more tip, make sure your foil is completely flat and secured to your cardstock.

New Years Eve Party Favors with the Foil Quill by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Once the wording is foiled on your cardstock, use the We R Memory Keepers Tag Punch Board to create your tag shape. I always create a test tag first from left-over paper, to see if I like the angle of the edges.

New Years Eve Party Favors with the Foil Quill by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

The Tag Punch Board can also punch the hole at the top of the tag. The lines on the board make it easy to get in centered. Which is good for me, I have centering issues. I tend to put everything too far to the left!

New Years Eve Party Favors with the Foil Quill by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Wrap ribbon around the top of the sealed treat bag and put both ends through the opening at the top of the tag. Tie a bow and adjust as necessary.

Please note my bag was secured closed with a twist-tie first.

Using the small star Clear Cut Punch, I punched a few stars from glitter paper and added them to the center of my bow.

Upon looking at my ribbon, I realized that the ends did not look finished. To add some curl to my wired ribbon, I grabbed one of my stylus tools and wrapped the ribbon around the ends. Such a fun look!

How to Make a 2020 Planner with the Etch Quill

Hello We R friends! It’s Aly Dosdall here with you again. Now that Christmas is over, I’m excited to start the new year and set some goals. To help keep track of my goals, tasks, and ideas I created a 2020 Planner with some of my favorite We R tools.

2020 Planner with the Etch Quill by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

My favorite part of the “Make It Happen” 2020 Planner is the cover that I made with the Etch Quill and my Silhouette Cameo 3. I used the 4×6 inch acetate sheets that come with the Etch Quill Kit and some art from the Heidi Swapp Foil Quill USB Design Drive. I bound my planner together with The Cinch binding tool. Tip: remember to leave at least a 1/2 inch margin along the left edge for binding.

2020 Planner with the Etch Quill by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

I placed a 4×6 piece of dark pink solid cardstock behind the etched plastic sheet to add some contrast for visibility. I also added a strip of patterned paper and a few stickers from the Dear Lizzy New Day collection.

2020 Journal with the Etch Quill by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers 6

For the inside pages, I trimmed down some plain lined paper to 4×6 inches, and made some patterned paper dividers with The Works All In One Tool.

I added some pockets that I made with the Pocket Maker Punch Board to the dividers to hold loose papers and ephemera.

How to Make Christmas Place Cards with the Freestyle Pens

Happy December!  This is Rebecca and we’re just a couple of days from Christmas now!  It hardly seems possible and I’m sure you’ve got all of your cards sent out, wrapped gifts under the tree, and your holiday meal all planned out.  Just in case you’re in need of a pretty place holder for the guests you’re hosting, I have a quick idea to share, featuring the easy to use Freestyle Foil Quill Pens.

Holiday Place Cards with the Foil Quill Freestyle Pens by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

Holiday Place Cards with the Foil Quill Freestyle Pens by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory KeepersOver the past couple of years, I’ve been buying up and hoarding these leafy garlands from the craft stores.  They come in handy for every kind of Christmas project you can think of!  They’re wired and cut apart easily (I like to use the wire cutters that come with the Happy Jig, though, to save my scissors).  I created some quick wreaths out of the garlands, but if you don’t have or can’t find them, any wreath–even a paper one or real greenery–will work just fine for this project.

Holiday Place Cards with the Foil Quill Freestyle Pens by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

Personalizing your holders is so simple with the Freestyle Foil Quill Pens.  I used mine to write the names of my family members on a die cut label.  I chose the silver foil and held it in place over the label with magnet pieces, writing the names with the fine tip pen–that’s the pink one.  I find that when I’m writing, especially in cursive, I can be more precise with the finer tip.  If you have calligraphic experience, though, there is a pen for that, as well–it’s dark pink and has a special tip.

Holiday Place Cards with the Foil Quill Freestyle Pens by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

Holiday Place Cards with the Foil Quill Freestyle Pens by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory KeepersI added a few little stars to decorate each name tag.  The silver foil contrasts so nice against the dark burgundy cardstock I used.  Set against the deep green of the wreath, it’s so Christmassy!

Holiday Place Cards with the Foil Quill Freestyle Pens by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory KeepersHoliday Place Cards with the Foil Quill Freestyle Pens by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

The labels are attached with glue dots, which makes them easy to remove from the wreath so that my guests have something they can take home and use later, either as a holiday decoration, tree ornament or a gift topper.  When I make items like these, it’s always nice if they can be repurposed.  At the very least, I can reuse them next year!

Holiday Place Cards with the Foil Quill Freestyle Pens by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

I thought it might be nice to add a few little silver berries dotted around each wreath to dress them up, so I cut up some faux berries I had and hot glued them within the leaves.

Holiday Place Cards with the Foil Quill Freestyle Pens by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

The final touch for my place card wreaths was the bow at the top, which I made with the Bow Loom and some glitter ribbon.  It’s a double bow that was super-easy to make with the loom and adds such a festive touch!

One Tool, Three Ways: Planner Spread with the new Cordless Marker Airbrush

Hello We R Fans! Soraya here today to share 3 ways to use the new USB Cordless Marker Airbrush in your planner to create a fun and Christmas-y atmosphere!

One Tool, Three Ways: Planner Spread with the Cordless Marker Airbrush by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Idea 1 : add templates

Thanks to the stencil in the kit (or any stencil you already have) you can add more templates and tabs to your spread so easily! First of all, you need to cover around the other shapes on the template with papers to avoid ink splashes. Once everything is in place, you can insert the marker of your choice in the Airbrush and push it all the way in until it stops. Now you can spray your ink at about 15cm above the surface, slowly and regularly.

Repeat the process everywhere you need to add tabs on your spread.

Idea 2 : DIY stencil with the Word Punch Board

Did you know the the Word Punch Board could be used as a stencil? Well, if you need thin letters to fill your planner, you definitively need to try this.

One Tool, Three Ways: Planner Spread with the Cordless Marker Airbrush by Soraya Maes for We R Memory KeepersI used the Word Punch Board to create the days of the week. It was so easy and effortless! Just protect your surface and planner pages before using the Airbrush and voilà.

Idea 3 : create ombré colors

Prepare the word you want to color on a scrap of cardstock. Use chipboard or foam Thickers or any other porous surface. First of all, spray the darkest color from the top of the letters to the middle. Then swap the dark marker for the lightest one and start coloring from the middle to the bottom of the letters. Peel them off carefully and you have your ombré letters!

Tip: you can keep the cardstock with the negative letters to use it later on another project.

Ombre Glitter Favor Bags with the Glue Quill

Hello, and Happy Monday friends! Aly Dosdall here to get your week started off with a little sparkle and shine. I know we’re all still totally focused on Christmas, but I just had to share a fun party favor idea for New Year’s Eve using one of my favorite new tools, the Glue Quill along with my Silhouette Cameo 3.

Ombre Glitter New Year's Even Favor Bags with the Glue Quill by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

The Glue Quill is a glue pen attachment for you cutting machine. It doesn’t require power and can fit into your pen holder or blade holder depending on the type of cutting machine you have. I love how the Glue Quill creates a professional quality look on projects using SVG files from the Foil Quill Design Drives or from your own library of files. Check out the step-by-step video tutorial below!

While this project is for New Year’s Eve, you can create this same ombre glitter effect on projects for any theme–birthdays, Christmas, baby or bridal showers, anniversaries, etc.

Ombre Glitter New Year's Even Favor Bags with the Glue Quill by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Simply switch out the artwork for something that fits with your celebration theme, and switch out glitter colors to coordinate. Just remember to choose one light color, one medium, and one dark.
