Planner Pocket with the New Trim & Score Board

Hello everybody! Soraya here to share with you a fun and easy tutorial to make your own planner pockets using one of the new amazing releases of We R Memory Keepers that you could discover a few days ago at the Creativation show: the new Trim & Score Board !

DIY Planner Pocket by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Trim and Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

To make this cute planner pocket I used a patterned paper from the FUSEables Collection. First, I used the Trim function to cut the paper. I could easily see how sturdy and stable the board is compared to the former one. I cut my paper at 7 – 3/8 inch x 6 – ¾ inch to fit in my mini Memory Planner.

Then, I turned the blue guide on the other side to score my paper in the middle. This new system is on point since it prevents the paper from slipping on the board. And since I used a plastic paper, it was very useful to get it stable!

To create the folder look on the pocket, I scored the top and cut it with the Trimmer.

Time to Fuse! To close the edges of the pocket, I used my Fuse and its ruler as a guide: love how it turned out! And most of all, I love the ‘stitching’ effect you have after passing the tool on the plastic sheet!

Now that the pocket is done and decorated, I just need to place it in my planner. This is why my Planner Punch Board is never too far from me! Use the chart on the back to see what is the perfect alignment for your planner and punch it!

Decorate Your Planner with the Square Punch Board

Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here to share with you a planner spread using the new Square Punch Board which allows you to create as many squares as you want, you will love it! But first, let me wish you a happy new year! May 2018 bring you all the joy and love you deserve!

Planner Spread with the Square Punch Board by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

The Square Punch Board is a must-have tool when you’re a planner addict! How easy and fun it is now to create squares and insert them in your project! It’s amazing! All you have to do is place the guides on the right dimensions and punch! And that’s all you need to do to get tons of patterned squares like I did in this planner spread. I could easily decorate each day of the week with a perfectly cut paper band.

I also used my Square Punch Board to fill the photo sleeves according to their right size. It has never been so fast and easy to fill the pockets! I only had to adjust the parameters and the result was awesome. (Pocket Letters fans, you will love it for sure!)

Hey there We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here to share my February 2018 planner spread. You guys, I can’t even tell you how easy the Square Punch board made this project. All of you planner girls will be in heaven!

Planner Spread featuring the Square Punch Board by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

I love the look of patterned paper squares in my planner but I hate cutting all those little tiny squares (or rectangles) with my paper trimmer.

Square Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

It took me longer to measure the little rectangles on the calendar than it did to punch out all the patterned paper. I’m not very good at measuring (just ask my husband) so it took a little bit of trial and error to find the right measurement. When I did get the punch adjusted for my calendar, it took a matter of seconds to punch the patterned paper squares.

Because it’s February, I thought a Valentines themed planner was a must. The Crate Paper “Main Squeeze” collection was a perfect collection for this planner spread. I added the patterned paper squares throughout the calendar. There’s no rhyme or reason to their placement, I just made sure that the same patterns weren’t next to each other.

Before I added a few stickers to complete my February planner spread I added a few strips of washi. Of course, I used my Washi Chomper to create that adorable banner shape. I love the finished look the Washi Chomper gives my washi throughout the planner spread.

2018 Planner Calendar Insert | Free Printable

Hello, and Merry Christmas friends! It’s Aly here today, and I hope you’re enjoying the holiday and spending lots of precious time with loved ones. I’ve got a gift for you today–a free printable 2018 planner calendar!

Planner Calendar Inserts by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

I created monthly calendar inserts for my Heidi Swapp personal planner. I like to put these at the beginning of each month in my planner as a quick date reference.

Planner Calendar Inserts by Aly Dosdall

I printed the planner calendar inserts on plain white cardstock, and then cut them out with my Trim and Score Board. These inserts are 4 x 7 1/4 inches–the perfect size for the Heidi Swapp personal planner.

 

If you’d like to print your own, you can download the free pdf file by clicking the link below.

2018 Planner Calendar

The inserts come two to a sheet, so you’ll need 6 sheets of 8 1/2 x 11 inch cardstock. Once you trim them, you can use the Planner Punch Board to add them to your planner. I used the spiral punch insert since my planner is spiral bound.

I also added a decorative strip of washi tape that I cut with the Washi Chomper. I love that little tool and find myself using it all the time. I found that adding the washi tape before punching the insert with the Planner Punch Board worked the best.

To complement my monthly calendar inserts, I decorated the opposite page with embellishments from the Heidi Swapp Memory Planner Embellishment Kit, and a few stickers from the Chasing Dreams collection by Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper.

If you’re not a planner fan, you can still use this free printable 2018 calendar. You can print it and bind the pages with the Cinch binding tool along the left edge. There’s extra room there for binding. Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope you enjoy this little gift and have a Merry Christmas!

Planner Spread with the Washi Chomper

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here. Washi tape is a staple when I am planning. For this week’s pages, I put the We R Memory Keepers Washi Chomper to use, along with some planner-friendly WRMK  washi tapes:

Planner Spread with the We R Memory Keepers Washi Chomper by Tessa Buys

First, I started with the days of the week. Using the days of the week washi and the Washi Chomper, I made a pointed label for each day. I love how the washi strips now direct my eye to that day’s appointments.

Second, I used the Washi Chomper to cut out a few yellow arrows to highlight some important details of my week. This time I created one pointed end and one notched end. I love how handy the We R Memory Keepers washi tapes are for keeping my planner organized!

Planner Spread with the We R Memory Keepers Washi Chomper by Tessa Buys

Last, I used some other WRMK washi tapes to simply decorate my page – coral borders here and there, and polka dot accents in a few places. Some Pink Paislee puffy stickers finished off the embellishing and my pages were ready for my pen.

I love how the Washi Chomper perfectly cut all my washi tape labels. I know I could do pretty much the same thing with scissors, but not nearly this neatly and uniformly. I never can seem to get my notches perfectly centered, and forget an even point. This handy tool is going straight into my planning supplies cart for many future uses!

Mixed Media Planner Dashboard

Hello We R friends! Aly here with you today to share a mixed media planner dashboard I made. I have to say, I’m a beginner at the mixed media thing, but with the Letterpress Starter Kit, the Evolution Advanced, and some paints from the Vicki Boutin Mixed Media collection this dashboard came together quickly and easily, and I’m excited to give it another go!

Mixed Media Letterpress Planner Dashboard by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Mixed Media Letterpress Planner Dashboard by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

To create this dashboard, I used a sheet of 4.25″ x 5.5″ letterpress paper that comes with the Letterpress Kit and added some brush strokes with Vicki Boutin paints in my favorite color palette.

Vicki Boutin paints on letterpress paper

I used a 3/4 soft white mop brush and started with the darkest colors. After those dried I added the medium colors, allowing them to dry, and then the lightest colors. I finished off with some touches of white paint to add some texture.

Mixed Media Letterpress Planner Dashboard by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Once all the paint dried I added a letterpress sentiment using one of the plates that comes in the kit. I trimmed a piece of double sided adhesive from the kit to fit my plate, and then placed it where I wanted the sentiment to be positioned on the dashboard with the adhesive side facing up. Then I lowered the top of the letterpress platform, pressed it into the plate with adhesive to stick the plate to the platform.

Inking the letterpress plate with the black resin ink pad that comes with the kit was easy and a lot less messy than using a tube of ink, a roller, and an ink block. Simply turn the resin ink pad upside down and pounce it on the letterpress plate until it’s fully inked. Then lower the top of the platform and roll it through the Evolution Advanced. No need for complicated combinations of platform and shims–simply turn the dial on the Evolution Advanced to the “Letterpress” setting.

Mixed Media Letterpress Planner Dashboard by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Tip: be sure to leave a paint-free spot on your letterpress paper big enough for your letterpress plate as the resin ink won’t take well to paint.

Once the letterpress ink dried, I punched the insert with my Planner Punch Board + Spiral Disc Punch inserts and added it into my Heidi Swapp Time Flies Memory Planner.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope this project inspires you to try playing around with different combinations of paints and letterpress. Happy crafting friends!

Hello everyone! It’s Eva Pizarro with you today sharing a quick Planner project using the new Hole Reinforcer Punch.

Hole Reinforcer Punch Planner Spread by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I don’t know about you but I always procrastinate some things from my daily to do list. To be able to notice important things in my planner more quickly, I decided to create small tags and attach them with small pieces of washi tape.

Hole Reinforcer Punch Planner Spread by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

To make the tags I used small pieces of patterned paper from the Creekside collection by our friends 1Canoe2 and made a small hole using my Crop a Dile. To embellish the tag and make it look perfect I added a circle using my Hole Reinforcement Punch. This punch is perfect for the Planner Lover! You can add extra pops of color in seconds and your inserts will never tear out again!

Hole Reinforcer Punch Planner Spread by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

To add a little more journaling space I used one of the 4 x 6 inch cards from the 12 x 12 Paper Pad and added some punch outs using my Hole Reinforcer punch to embellish it a little bit, specially the white side of the card.

Hole Reinforcer Punch Planner Spread by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

Tip: Put washi tape on top of patterned paper, punch, remove from the paper and you have a sticky hole reinforcer ready to go!

Coin Envelope Planner Insert

Hello friends! Aly here with you again to share a cute and easy way to store items in your planner. Using the 123 Punch Board I made a coin style envelope to hold my planner accessories, and then I punched it with the Planner Punch Board to fit into my small Heidi Swapp Memory Planner. I used some beautiful paper and embellishments from the new Heart of Home collection by Jen Hadfield for Pebbles Inc.

Coin Envelope Planner Insert by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

This envelope is perfect for storing embellishments, photos, receipts or other ephemera, and I love how easy it was to make with these punch boards. Honestly, I’m not sure what I did before punch boards! Ha!

Coin Envelope Planner Insert by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Coin Envelope Planner Insert by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

To make the coin envelope, I followed the instructions on the 123 Punch Board to make a 4 x 5 1/2 inch envelope. I love that the instructions for envelopes, boxes, and bows are printed on the board. So handy!

123 Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

I cut my paper to 8×8 inches, and then lined it up on the board at 3 1/2 inches. Then I followed the instructions to punch and score on all four sides of my paper.

123 Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

There’s no need to round the corners for this envelope. Instead, I pulled out my Trim and Score Board and trimmed 7/8 inch off the top, bottom, and one side of the envelope.

To assemble the envelope, I added some Sticky Thumb Red Double Sided Tape to the side that I trimmed, and then folded up the bottom flap first, then the untrimmed side, and lastly the trimmed side.

In order to keep the envelope 4 inches wide for photos, I added a 1 x 5 1/2 inch strip of cardstock for punching with the Planner Punch Board.

Coin Envelope Planner Insert by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

I added a strip of washi tape to the front and back of the strip for added support for the punched holes and as an embellishment.

Next, I added a button and string closure to the envelope. I used leftover ones from some Typecast treat bags, but you can easily make your own with a 1/2 inch hole punch, some brads (or eyelets), and some twine.

Coin Envelope Planner Insert by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Finally, I added some embellishments from the Heart of Home collection on the front and back of the envelope.
