Using Washi Tape in Your Planner

Hello everybody! Soraya here to share a new planner spread using tons of washi tape as we’re digging into Washi Tape week on the We R Memory Keepers blog! I must admit that washi tape is my favorite embellishment and spreading it in all my projects is always lots of fun!

Here is the first spread I made. It’s a basic a weekly double page with hand lettering. I used different colors and sizes of washi rolls to structure and organize the week. If you want to write directly on washi you should chose a permanent marker for a better result.

Before adding the embellishments I wrote down the journaling with my Typecast typewriter. I will forever love the authentic style you can get with a typewriter!

For this second spread, I played with the amazing Word Punch Board! How easy and fun it is to create a summer design. Here is how I did it: on a white piece of cardstock I placed a layer of washi tape right on the edge. I placed the letters “SUM-ER” in the Word Punch Board then punched it. I took the “M” and moved it over one slot before punching again. I made a whole phrase like this using different colors of washi tape! So fun, I tell you!

I cut all around the washi tape borders before placing them on my planner spread and decorating them!

Washi Tape Planner Clips

Good Monday morning, We R Memory Keepers fans, Laura here today. Washi tape has to be one of my absolute favorite crafting supplies. I use it all the time in my planner, to label file folders, and for crafts. Today, I am going to show you how easy it is to make planner clips with washi tape.

Washi Tape Bookmarks by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Start by gathering all your supplies. You will need a selection of washi tape, paper clips in various sizes, and the washi chomper.

Washi Tape Bookmarks by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

First, grab a piece of washi tape about 3 to 4 inches long.

Washi Tape Bookmarks by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Place it through the top of the paper clip. Match up the ends together and press the washi tape together. Once you get close to the paper clip, turn the washi so it is towards the top and finish placing the washi tape together.

Washi Tape Bookmarks by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

You want to always be sure to place your washi tape on this side of the paper clip with only one rounded edge so you can still slide the paper clip onto your papers and have your washi flag stick out the top.

Use the washi chomper to create the perfect v-shape at the end of your washi tape. This is so much easier than trying to carefully use scissors to cut the ends.

Washi Tape Bookmarks by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I like to do a slight variation with smaller paper clips. Start off the same way by sliding your washi tape through the top edge of the paper clip on the side.

Washi Tape Bookmarks by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

This time, fold the washi tape in half, match up the ends, and press the washi tape pieces together while leaving it on the side of the clip.

Again, use the washi chomper to create the flag shape in the washi. The washi chomper is adjustable so you can cut just about any size washi perfectly.

Washi Tape Bookmarks by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I love to use these little washi tape paper clips as bookmarks since they stay put, and I don’t have to worry about them falling out of my books. I also love them to mark the week or month in my planners.

Washi Tape Bookmarks by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

They also make an adorable gift. Simply cut a slit in the middle of a tag, attach all the paper clips in a row, and package in a clear cellophane bag.

How to Create a Summer Themed Planner Spread

Hi We R fans! Soraya here for another summer project: let’s put some sunshine and colors in our planners with this new spread I made with some of my favorite tools!

How to Create a Summer Planner Spread by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Do you like sprinkles? Well, if so you will love this amazing punch that allows you to create multiple sprinkles to decorate everywhere! I decided to go with a pocket sleeve that is already in my Memory Planner and fill the 3 pockets with miscellaneous colors from cardstock leftovers.

I’ve also decorated it with words from a 12×12 paper that I cut with my detail scissors. Then I  stuck them with my glue gun.

I wanted something white and fresh to contrast with the summery colors so I went with white gesso and stuck a beautiful set of leaves directly on it.

To make it more vibrant and fun I used my Confetti Punch and added lots of confetti around the leaves.

Memory Planner Scrapbook Page

Happy Friday friends! It’s Aly here with you again, and I’m really excited to share a special Memory Planner spread with you for National Scrapbook Day. Most of my memory keeping these days either happens in my planner, a traveler’s notebook, or a pocket style album. My daughter and I recently took a trip to Boston and New York City, so I recorded some memories on the April spread in my Heidi Swapp monthly planner.

Memory Planner Scrapbook Page by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

I love scrapbooking on a smaller scale in my planner where I’m recording details about my life anyway. It just makes sense with my busy schedule, and saves me time while still allowing me to capture important memories.

Memory Planner Scrapbook Page by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

I used the new DCWV Journaling Premium Stack and the Okey Dokey Stack to embellish my planner spread. The Journaling Stack is full of labels, cards, tags, and other goodies you can punch out and use for journaling in or embellishing your planner.

Heatwave Pen by We R Memory Keepers

I used my Heatwave Pen, some gold foil, and a Heatwave Template to add some gold metallic handwriting to the left side of the planner spread. I love the sparkle it adds!

Next I created a DIY accent tag with my Tag Punch Board as a layer in a cluster of embellishments. I love that I can customize the size and shape of my tag with this awesome punch board!

I was able to add plenty of journaling about our trip by typing it onto some cards from the Journaling Stack, and including the cards in an envelope I made with the Mini Envelope Punch Board.

Planner Spread with the Typecast Typewriter

Hello everybody Soraya here with you to share a new planner spread using the wonderful typewriter by We R Memory Keepers: the Typecast! It is so easy to add journaling and stories to our projects. It also adds such an authentic look!

Planner Spread with the Typecast Typewriter by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

When I decorate my planner, I love adding lovely embellishments, tags, stickers… and journaling! Yes, the words are definitely an embellishment for me. Wether with the Typecast or with our hand writing, the words we use can immediately give some great dimension! This is what I did for this pread, I created a spring bucket list.

Using the Mini Alphabet Punch Board is also something that I love to do when it comes to decorating my planner. Those little letters are so cute, I could put them anywhere! So here is a “hello” that will welcome the spring pages. I followed the instructions on the Alphabet Punch Board App directly on my phone, it’s way cooler!

Mini Alphabet Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

As you have to use little paper rectangles (1.5 x 2.5 inches) with the mini board, I cut them out with my fabulous Trim & Score Board. And here we go!

Happy Jig Planner Spread

Hello everybody! Soraya here with you today for a new planner project using the amazing Happy Jig. I love how fun and easy this tool is, you can really make any design or shape you want. Let’s make a paperclip and a planner closure band together!

Happy Jig Planner Spread by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

To make the “hello” paperclip, I followed the instructions in the booklet and cut the correct amount of wire (17inch). Then I placed all the different pegs on the board and started to shape the word.

I could also make an arrow paperclip to decorate the board of the planner and some other lovely shapes I will problably add later (the tropical leaf is my favorite!)

Happy Jig by We R Memory Keepers

To make the planner closure band you will need white elastic, scissors, the new Crafter’s Essentials USB Mini Glue Gun and the word “happy” (previously made with the Happy Jig).

First of all,  cut the white elastic to the right length in order to fit around your planner (don’t forget to leave one inch more for the edges). Pass the elastic through the word and stick the ends using the glue gun.

Easy Planner Inserts with the Tag Punch Board

Hello everybody! Soraya here with you today for a new project using the Tag Punch Board, the new tool that allows you to create effortlessly tons of tags for all your different projects. It’s a mini board but definitely effective. I created a planner insert and extra photo-tags!

Tag Punch Board Planner Inserts by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Tag Punch Board Planner Inserts by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

To make the insert and the photo tags you will need to gather with your planner some colorful papers, bakers twine, black cardstock, diecuts or stickers and of course the Tag Punch Board. I also used the fantastic Planner Punch Board and the Hole Reinforcer Punch for a perfect finish!

Tag Punch Board Planner Inserts by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

First of all, to create my insert I cut a beautiful paper with pink chevrons from the Heidi Swapp Hawthorne collection. The dimensions are made to fit my mini memory planner: 6 5/8 x 2.5 inch. I used my Trim & Score Board for a quick and perfect cut!

Trim and Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

Let’s shape the tag! This board is very easy to use since you have different guides to help you chose the depth you want to give to the corners. The more you slide the paper up on the board, the deeper the angles will be! So I decided to place the paper on the G line. Once you cut the first corner, turn the paper on the other side and repeat the process on the same line. Use the punch you have on the board to make the tag hole and voilà!

Now grab your Planner Punch Board and your Hole Reinforcer Punch to transform this tag into a cute planner insert! I used some black cardstock and black twine to contrast with the bright colors. Add some decorations and your tag/insert is ready to be placed in your planner.

What about creating photo-tags to add more details in your planner?! So easy and fun! Repeat the same process but use a photo instead of the paper. The Crop-A-Dile will help you to enlarge the tag hole so that you’ll be able to add a reinforcer before inserting it to your binder! So cool !

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.

Trim and Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

Trim and Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

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!

Trim and Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

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!

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.

Planner Spread with the Square Punch Board

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

Thank you for stopping by the We R Memory Keepers blog. I’d love to see what you’re creating with the Square Punch Board. Planner peeps, you’ll be in LOVE. Happy planning my friends!
