DIY Valentine’s Day Card Game

Hello again and thank you for joining me today. I’m so thrilled to be able to create for We R Memory Keepers for another year! My first post for the year is about creating something very special for someone special in your life. The Square Punch Board and Acrylic Block Set have helped me create this Do-It-Yourself deck of cards with a Valentine’s theme.

The Square Punch Board made it so easy to create multiple copies of the same size card. Simply set the measurements, insert your paper and punch!

The deck comes complete with a matching box to keep this loved up set together. I have used the new ‘Forever my Always’ collection from Pebbles for this project. I loved the super sweet sentiments and colour scheme.

If one were to use this deck a lot, one would probably be able to remember which number was which colour, but I figured for this special occasion, I would get away with choosing one pattern for each number and then going about decorating the houses differently.

Square Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

The cards are all 4×3.5 inches in size with opposite corners treated the same. The brilliantly clever new 3 Way Corner Rounder is three tools in one! Simply choose the desired angle of roundness you would like for your corner, insert paper into relevant slot and punch. So quick and easy! I have left two corners sharp and rounded two corners.

I then set about decorating my cards…

Because they stack, I chose to go with some stamping. (One could also use a computer programme to design a pattern and then print out multiple cards on sheets of A4 but then punching them out might be a bit trickier.) The stamping worked out great thanks to my Acrylic Block Set. These are also a brand new product and each pack comes with three sizes to fit pretty much any size stamp. The edges of the blocks are curved so they are comfortable to hold and they also have crosshairs printed on them, making it easier to line up your stamps.

I’ve used StazOn on the cards so the ink is waterproof. A few splatters of Color Shine here and there added a bit of shimmer and colour contrast to the deck.

Here’s a close up of a finished card. If you had a lot of the same alphabet/number stickers, one could also use them instead of stamping to embellish the cards.

The cards needed a box to be stored in, so I carefully unfolded an existing box and traced around it, onto some beautiful foiled Bazzill cardstock. I chose it for the colour and also because it’s a sturdy cardstock and will hopefully withstand a bit of handling over time.

I used my Score Board to crease along the fold lines I had marked and used extra strength double-sided tape (the red one) to adhere it shut.

Basic Score Board by We R Memory Keepers
Here you can see all the cards sorted into their ranks. I have not used traditional suits, instead choosing to use ‘mini hearts’, ‘flowers’, ‘cherries’ and ‘suns’. I’ve also just done them all black, which I don’t think is too much of a problem, but feel free to make yours red and black!

I really enjoyed making these and my awesome kiddos really enjoyed testing them out! I can’t wait to give them my DH on Valentine’s Day.

The little ‘Let’s Play’ banner was typed up on my Typecast Typewriter and added, to tie-in with the little speech bubble sticker (raised on foam tape).

I hope you will give this idea a try for your Valentine (or birthday boy/girl!) It was such a fun way to use my Square Punch Board! Until next time!

Lunch Box Notes with the Typecast Typewriter

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here today with some fun lunchbox notes! While my soon-to-be middle schooler assures me that he still loves getting notes from me in his lunchbox, I thought I would add a little bit of fun and silliness, instead of so much mushy-stuff. He has long been a fan of jokes, so I thought making lunchbox notes with jokes would be perfect!

Lunchbox Notes with the Typecast Typewriter by Kimberly Wilkinson for We R Memory Keepers

 

To create the jokes, I grabbed a joke book and used the internet to find the best ones, or at least jokes he has not already told me a thousand times! The Typecast Typewriter was going to be the perfect way to write up these jokes!

Lunchbox Notes with the Typecast Typewriter by Kimberly Wilkinson for We R Memory Keepers

 

Typecast 8.5×11” paper was scrolled into my Typecast. I began typing each joke, leaving space between the start and the punchline. Some jokes I left all together in one grouping.

Lunchbox Notes with the Typecast Typewriter by Kimberly Wilkinson for We R Memory Keepers

 

 

Once all my jokes were typed up, I used small rectangular dies to cut the jokes out. A shaped punch would work well too.

 

I cut and scored my card stock bases with the Trim & Score Board.

Lunchbox Notes with the Typecast Typewriter by Kimberly Wilkinson for We R Memory Keepers

The size of my cards was determined by my 1-2-3Punchboard. Why? Because I knew I wanted to create envelopes. The smallest size envelopes available were for cards measuring 2×3.5” , which was the perfect size for a small lunchbox note!

Lunchbox Notes with the Typecast Typewriter by Kimberly Wilkinson for We R Memory Keepers

I created each of the envelopes with the same patterned paper I used to decorate each card, Crate Paper’s Cute Girl 6×6 Paper Pad.

Backpack Charms with the Photo Sleeve Fuse

 Hey there We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here. Sadly, summer is winding down which means the first day of school is right around the corner. While I hate to see Summer come to an end. I LOVE back to school time. I love the beginning of a new school year with a new schedule, new supplies, and a new routine. As a mom of three, it’s also a busy time of year. This year, I’ve made it a point to prepare early! I’ve even finished school shopping for one of my kids! I’ve also started on some crafty school projects too. I love it when I can use my crafty supplies to create fun things for my kids.

Photo Sleeve Fuse Backpack Charms by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

These adorable backpack charms are SO easy to make with a few tools from We R Memory Keepers. I put my Photo Sleeve Fuse tool, the Mini Alphabet Punch Board and my trusty old Crop-a-dile to work when I created these charms.

Photo Sleeve Fuse Backpack Charms by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

The charms are made out of Fuse Instax waterfall sleeves. I did trim them down slightly after I fused the edges closed.

Photo Sleeve Fuse Backpack Charms by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

Each charm has a small piece of patterned paper, a few stickers, sequins, and my child’s initials cut out of patterned paper with the Mini Alphabet Punch Board.

The patterned paper and stickers that I used for this project are from the Lovely Day collection by American Crafts and Dear Lizzy. I love how the layered stickers look in those cute little shaker pockets.

Photo Sleeve Fuse Backpack Charms by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

I chose to punch holes in the corner of the backpack charms with the small punch on the crop-a-dile so that none of the sequins would fall out of the punched hole.

I can’t wait to tie these little charms onto my kids backpacks as they head out the door to start a brand new school year. I’m curious, what crafty back to school projects do you have planned. I’d love to hear about them!

Thank you for stopping by the We R Memory Keepers blog. I’ll see you again soon.

Activity Travel Bag for Kids with the Stitch Happy

Hello and welcome, Chantalle with you today! I’ve been having so much fun with my Stitch Happy Sewing Machine that I thought it would be fun to create a little travel kit for my DD with some leftover calico fabric I had from the beach bag I created recently!

Travel Activity Bag with the Stitch Happy by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

Our family loves to take scenic drives at the weekend, but sometimes all the car time can make my little girl a bit restless. I have popped together a super simple little travel kit for her to keep those “Are we there yets?” at bay…

Travel Activity Bag with the Stitch Happy by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

The bag attaches to the headrest of the front seat so it’s easily reached and contains a few things to keep her (and possible even big bro!) engaged that teensy bit longer!

Travel Activity Bag with the Stitch Happy by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

The bag itself started out as roughly a six inch square piece of fabric. I used my Supreme Ruler to cut the fabric. I love the metal edge! Perfect for running a knife against and ensuring a clean cut.

I then ran the bag through my Stitch Happy with a straight stitch on two sides  (the fold served as the third side) leaving a little bit at the top open, for the hem section where I would insert the rope for the drawstring.

The outside has been embellished very simply with some felt hearts from the Stitch Happy Banner Kit. I hand-stitched some letters on them for a bit of fun. They spell the words ‘PLAY’ when read clockwise. I will admit that the addition of the lettering was after I had created the bag, so I used my hot glue gun to adhere them to the bag. (If I had had the thought of it earlier, I would have machine stitched them on.)

Travel Activity Bag with the Stitch Happy by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

The first item inside the bag is a little notebook, which I re-purposed from an existing book that I had in my stash.

Travel Activity Bag with the Stitch Happy by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

The size was perfect for the bag, so I carefully removed the cover and fashioned a new one from a sheet of Amy Tangerine’s On a Whim, ‘Shady Bunch’ paper. I used my Corner Chomper to round the edges.

Inside, I attached some Amy Tangerine On a Whim Ephemera sporadically onto a few pages.

Travel Activity Bag with the Stitch Happy by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

She can use the notebook to jot down some notes, make a map of our route or play a game with her brother.

Also inside is a little laminated scavenger hunt, which I downloaded from the net. There are heaps of printables available so they can be easily prepped the night before you travel if necessary.

There are also some little ‘Would you rather’ game cards, which I found online as well. These have been laminated and added to a book ring. I used my Crop a Dile to punch its way through the whole stack in one go!

Travel Activity Bag with the Stitch Happy by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

The bag turned out super cute and my little miss loves the fact that she has her own special kit for use in the car or on public transport. The book ring can even be attached to a handbag or stroller!

Travel Activity Bag with the Stitch Happy by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

Fill it with goodies your child loves. (LOL Dolls are a firm favourite in my house at the moment) and maybe even a treat or two or some headphones to keep those ears entertained.

Throwback Thursday: DIY Patriotic Confetti Poppers

Welcome to Throwback Thursday friends! Today we’re throwing it back to last summer with a popular patriotic kids activity that’s perfect for Independence Day parties and other patriotic events. It will keep the kids entertained and having fun for hours! Check out the full tutorial from Kimberly Crawford below.

Hello We R fans! Kimberly here to share a fun summer craft project with you today, a project for you and your kiddos! Summertime is about celebrations and fun. These easy-to-make confetti poppers are sure to be a hit!

Confetti Poppers by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To create these fun poppers, gather card board paper tubes, balloons, card stock, patterned paper, tape, and confetti.

  1. Tie the end of the balloon. Cut the top third of the balloon off.
  2. Stretch the balloon over the end of the cardboard tube, being careful not to bend the tube. Secure the balloon with tape around the edge. Make sure the balloon is stretched tightly across the top of the tube.
  3. Cover the cardboard tube with card stock and patterned paper. TIP: When wrapping cylindrical objects with paper, make the length wrap around at least one half time more. It helps keep the paper attached.
  4. Tie a DIY Party Fringe Tab to the end of the balloon, below the knot you created earlier. Trim the excess string.

I love how the DIY Fringe Tab makes this confetti popper look like a firework!

DIY Paper Fans

Hello We R fans, and happy Friday! It’s Aly with you again today sharing an easy and fun summer kids craft that you can make with your DIY Party Board and some paper from your scrapbook stash. I found this project on the Idea Room blog HERE. When I saw these fans, I immediately thought of the DIY Party Board, and knew this awesome tool would make these fans a snap!

DIY Paper Fans by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

This project is easy for kids to make, and requires supplies that you’ve likely already got on hand.

DIY Paper Fan by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Plus, they’re perfect for the warm summer months!

DIY Paper Fans by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Start by placing your 12×12 paper into the DIY Party Board with the corner placed into the alignment guide.

Place your A and C cutting guides at numbers 11 and 7 on the board, respectively.

Cut along each guide with your blade so that you end up with the shape shown in the photo below.

Punch a hole in the ends of 5 wooden craft sticks (or popsicle sticks) with the Crop-A-Dile using the 1/8th inch punch.

Then stack them up and thread a metal brad through the holes, bending the ends of the brad so that it stays in place.

Fan out the popsicle sticks that that they’re evenly spaced with the outside sticks placed near the edges of the paper you just cut. Hot glue the sticks to the back of the paper with the front of the brad facing down.

Once the glue is dry, stack the sticks on top of each other, folding the paper and creasing it as you go.

You can change out the paper for whatever event or occasion you’re celebrating. The kids would love picking out their own patterns and colors of paper.

DIY Paper Fans by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory KeepersI chose papers from the fun summer-themed Oasis collection from our sister brand, Crate Paper. I just love those flamingos!

Summer Reading Log

Hello, We R Memory Keepers fans, Laura here today. School just got out for us and I want to be sure both of my kids keep up with their reading skills all summer long. Having a summer reading log will help us keep track of all of the books we read this summer. We have some house rules about reading, playing outside, chores, and learning activities the kids must complete before they are allowed to use electronics.

DIY Summer Reading Log by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I created a printable log the kids could use each week. It has a space for the date, title of the book, and how many pages were read for each day of the week.

Summer Reading Log by Laura Silva

Get your free printable here: Summer Reading Log

I printed 10 weeks worth (front to back), so five pages total for each of my kids.

To start creating the reading log book, I started with two 8 ½ x 11 inch Cinch book boards. I covered the front and back covers with some fun, summery papers from Amy Tangerine’s On a Whim collection. I adhered the papers using double sided tape. I covered the inside covers with purple and yellow mono cardstock.

To separate each of the kid’s sections, I created tabs using teal and orange mono cardstock and the tab punch board. I labeled them with my children’s names.

Once I had everything together, I assembled the book with the Cinch tool and a small silver Cinch wire.

To make the cover a little more fun, I used some Thickers to spell out “Summer Reading Log” on some of the leftover teal and orange mono cardstock. I rounded the corners with the Corner Chomper. Then, I added stickers from the On a Whim collection.

DIY Summer Reading Log by Laura Silva for We R memory Keepers

I love the way it turned out. I know I am always more motivated to do what I need to do when I have something that looks nice and my kids are, too! This summer reading log will be the perfect way for the kids to keep track of what reading they do this summer.

Tooth Fairy Boxes

Hello everyone! Chantalle here, welcoming you back to the blog today.

My dear daughter has a changing smile at the moment, as she has started to loose a few more teeth. That little face, complete with a gappy grin just melts my heart! She has been using her brother’s homemade Lego tooth fairy box to store her tiny treasures, but I thought creating some special boxes would be a sweet way to mark the occasions.

I’ve created three types of small boxes. Well, strictly speaking they are not all boxes! For variety, I’ve made a little box, a box envelope and a little cone shaped one. Let me show you each one in a little more detail…

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The box envelope one was created using my 123 Punch Board. It’s extremely similar to creating a regular envelope on the board, with the exception of creating a few extra score lines.

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The little green box opens to reveal some bright insides. (For those of you who keep your little one’s teeth, this little box could provide a neat storage option.)

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I used the smallest size noted on the measurement chart on the 123 Punch Board. The overall size of the box is 1 ¾ inches squared and uses a piece of bright and beautiful Amy Tangerine On a Whim, ‘Let’s Leaf’ trimmed to 6 x6 inches.

The paper is scored and punched on both sides to reveal the box shape. Use the notch punch, which is cleverly incorporated into the punch board (along with a corner rounder) to create the grooves where the top sections fold in to each other to close the box. Tip: Close opposites sides of the box first.

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I’ve decorated the outside of the box with some Heidi Swapp Rub ons, some Amy Tangerine Washi Tape and Stickers.

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Inside, I have filled the box with some lovely yellow Vicki Boutin Tissue paper for a bit of fun.

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The box envelope is very easily put together, as mentioned earlier. I started off with a piece of paper, trimmed down to 5 1/8 inches squared and followed the prompts in the instructions for the 123 Punch Board. Inside this box, is a pull out card where we can record the details of the tooth or a message to the Tooth Fairy.

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

A handy storage idea (and so that the Tooth Fairy can make a quick getaway if she chooses to leave the envelope behind) is to include a little packet to keep the tooth in, if you are worried about it falling out. I picked these ones up at a Dollar Store.

Another tip I thought I would share, is to close the envelope with a removable glue dot. That way, you can open and close it without causing any damage. The envelope has been embellished quite simply, using some High Five items, like a button, some stickers and a die cut circle. This one would be great for a little Mister who has lost a tooth as well!

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The third little box turned out to be my daughter’s favourite and she used it straight away!

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Using my DIY Party Board I placed a sheet of Amy Tangerine On a Whim, ‘Sprinkle’ on to the board and cut a small triangular shape from the bottom. Note: I used the smaller guide and just cut a section off that I thought would work. You can of course, cut as big a shape as you like. I rolled up the shape, glued it shut and folded the top in a bit, further persuading it to stay in the rolled shape.

For a non-permanent closure, I have used a folded Oh Goodie Starburst Closure and a decorative bulldog clip. To the clip, I have attached a small tag with details of the tooth and finished it off with a cute butterfly die cut from a pack of Flower Girl Ephemera.

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers
So excited to pop her tooth inside!

It’s just a matter of time before that gap widens, as we have the neighbouring top tooth loose as well!

Mini Party Hats

Happy Monday morning, and welcome to Kids Craft Week here on the blog! This week our team is sharing projects for kids, or that can be made with kids. They’ve got plenty of awesome ideas to keep little ones entertained over the summer, so be sure to check back often! First off is a great project idea from Soraya Maes.

Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here with you today to share a creative activity we made together with my kids: mini party hats for their toys! And we had a lot of fun playing with the DIY Party Board which is now for sure, their favorite tool!

Mini Party Hats by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

For this special Kids Craft week I asked them if there was something they would love to create with me and they answered (without any hesitation!) that they would love to organize a birthday party for their toys! So this is what me made together and they were just amazed by the DIY Party Board. It was so cute!

DIY Party Board Mini Party Hats by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

My son started by cutting the colorful papers he selected with the Trim & Score Board. We needed 6×6 squares.

And my daughter did the same with her own selection of colorful papers. Then she started cutting the mini party hats shapes with the DIY Party Board!
