Make a Christmas Countdown House with Basic Craft Tools

Hi everyone! Soraya here today to share a merry DIY using the basic tools from We R Memory Keepers and the gorgeous DCWV Merry & Bright Christmas stack! I’m so excited to show you how I made this little house from A to Z thanks to the Supreme Ruler, the cutting knife and some white cardboard. You can find supplies for this project at Joann Stores or on their website.

This house is full of 24 little boxes I had fun to make with the 1-2-3 Punch Board! Here is how I made them : according to the chart of sizes you have on the board, I cut the papers to the right dimension before scoring them with the board. Just follow the instructions and you will see how fun and easy it is to create lots of pretty boxes!

I basically created 2 boxes of each dimension (and 4 for the first size) following the chart!

Once all the boxes were done, I placed them in a rectangle shape to see how I could fit them all in the future house. It’s like a Tetris game !

Then on a piece of paper I drew all the contours and lines that would become the “shelves” of the house ! Here is a sneak of the measures I used:

With the Supreme Ruler and the cutting knife I started cutting all the pieces I needed for making the structure of the house and the first walls. I placed them with the hot glue gun which is perfectly strong for this kind of surface.

Heres’s a tip for you: trace the lines with a pencil before using the hot glue gun to make sure everything fits well!

Don’t hesitate to place all the boxes as you go so that you can easily estimate the dimensions of the walls !

Finish the house by adding a roof out of white cardboard.

Time to decorate! In the “Merry & Bright” stack, there are some papers where you can fussycut cute designs to make your own labels. I used the Word Punch Board to make all the numbers from 1 to 24 on a black cardstock and I love how it turned out!

DIY Christmas Gift Boxes

Hello and welcome to my first Christmas project. I am totally excited because I love this magical time! I like to do a lot of things myself for this time. This year I already started with the production of packaging. You can’t have enough of them. Since I don’t like packing presents in paper, boxes are the best choice. The recipient can also reuse them. Which is also important to me.

DIY Holiday Gift Boxes by Steffi Ried for We R Memory Keepers

When I saw DCWV Inc Merry & Bright papers, I was immediately in LOVE. How beautiful are the colours and motifs? They look very modern.

DIY Holiday Gift Boxes by Steffi Ried for We R Memory KeepersDIY Holiday Gift Boxes by Steffi Ried for We R Memory Keepers

First I used the 1-2-3 Punch Board. With these I created boxes in different sizes (sizes between 1 ¾ – 4 inch). First I started with 3 boxes and then it became more and more. I simply could not stop J  And it is also so easy and fast with the board. You can find the 123 Punch Board and the DCWV Inc Merry & Bright Stack at Joann Stores or on their website.

In a box I have built a small window at the side. This I punched out with the Clear Cut Punch Circle (size 2 inch) and filled with artificial snow, pearls, sequins.

Then I thought about how I wanted to decorate the boxes. The new WORKS All-In-One tool is great for that!

I chose different ribbons from the cupboard. Then the pens are put according to the desired size on the board. And now wrap as described in the instructions. This is so easy and makes beautiful bows. I have done this for the first time and am enthusiastic.

Then I made the tassels and one pom-pom. These also fit perfectly as pendants to the boxes. I chose different yarns and wrapped the yarn around the rods again.

I like paper rosettes. Here I have created only half rosettes. Cut a 12 inch long strip and fold it. Additionally cut a narrow strip in the width of the folded sides. Stick the rosette on it with double-sided adhesive tape. Then glue the hole with a hot glue gun in the middle. This way the rosette is more stable and stays on the boxes.

I’ve turned the boxes over so the openings are down. So you can decorate the top of the box and don’t have to remove it to open it. Unless you want to fill something heavy into the box, then I would make the closure upwards.

The small mini bottles are also great as pendants for the boxes. I filled them with artificial snow, glitter, pearls and sequins. I like such little eye-catchers with gifts. That makes it something special.

Finally, I cut various ribbons, pendants and motifs from the papers and decorated the boxes with them.

DIY December Planner with the Singe Quill

Hello We R fans! It’s Aly here with you today and I’m extra excited to share this project with you. Have you heard of the new Quill Kits? They work with your electronic cutting machine to do all kinds of cool things to take your craft projects to the next level. Check out how I made a DIY December Planner with the Singe Quill and my Silhouette Cameo 3!DIY December Planner with the Singe Quill by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

December is a fun and super busy month. I find keeping things organized with lists and specific plans helps me to enjoy the season more and stress less. So, I decided to make a special December planner where I can keep track of my shopping, baking, and to do lists.

DIY December Planner with the Singe Quill by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

I divided my planner into four sections: to buy, to bake, to watch, to do. I included tabbed dividers that I made with patterned paper from the DCWV Inc Christmas Nutcracker paper stack. In between each divider is some blank white paper where I can take notes, write down ideas, record memories, or attach photos. Take a look at each divider inside the planner:

DIY December Planner with the Singe Quill by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory KeepersDSC_0474DSC_0477DSC_0478

I created the covers and some of the embellishments with the Singe Quill, some Singe Quill Wood Sheets, Singe Quill ephemera, my Cameo 3, and some artwork from the Holidays USB Design Drive. Here’s how I did it:

Place an 8×8 sheet of Singe Quill Wood in the center of your cutting mat. Be sure to check the clearance on your machine (how thick the material can be to fit in). Move the rollers out of the way, or place the wood sheet on your mat so it doesn’t go under the rollers.

DIY December Planner with the Singe Quill by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Prepare your design in your software. Select the Fine or Bold Tip Singe Quill, insert it into the appropriate adapter according to the included instruction booklet. Place your adapter and Singe Quill into your machine following the sketch or draw instructions for your machine.

Send your artwork to the machine and watch the Singe Quill do the work! You won’t be able to see the design that the quill is drawing. It’s applying a clear chemical that we will singe once it’s done.

Once your design is finished, remove your mat, take the wood sheet off the mat and singe the design with the Singe Quill Heat Gun. You can also follow the instructions to singe the wood in the oven.

DIY December Planner with the Singe Quill by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

I bound the covers, dividers, and paper together with The Cinch binding tool. It went right through the wood covers, no problem. (Tip: be sure to leave about a 1 inch margine on the left side of your covers for binding.) I added these to the four tabbed divider pages, and the blank white paper and then cinched it all together with 1″ gold Cinch Wire.

DIY December Planner with the Singe Quill by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Then I used the Singe Quill to write custom words and phrases on some wood ephemera pieces that came in the kit. I wanted to include some of my own handwriting, but you can do this with your cutting machine as well.

DIY December Planner with the Singe Quill by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Here’s a closer look at the first tabbed divider:

I made a coin envelope with The Works All In One Tool. This is where I’ll keep my receipts in case I need to return anything from my Christmas shopping list.

Here’s a close up of the second tabbed divider:

DIY December Planner with the Singe Quill by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Baking is one of our family Christmas traditions, so I’ll keep our favorite recipes handy here in this pocket, and add new ones I collect as well. By the way, I made the folded tabs with The Works All In One Tool.

DIY December Planner with the Singe Quill by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

It’s so nice to have one tool that I can pull out to make all the things!

Take a look at the third tabbed divider:

The last two sections are for recording our favorite holiday movies and activities, and keeping track of which ones we’ve watched or done. I made two check lists with the All In One Journal Guide.

DIY December Planner with the Singe Quill by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Then I added them to the last two tabbed dividers along with some Singe Quill ephemera. We’ll write down our favorite holiday movies on one list, and our favorite holiday family activities on the other. Then, as we do them I’ll check them off and we can use the blank white paper to write what we liked/didn’t like about the activities. I can also store photos and stories from our holiday adventures. Here’s tabbed divider number 4:

I added a few final touches to my planner. The first was a pom pom and tassel planner charm that I made with The Works All In One Tool. I’ve already said it, and I’ll say it again: I LOVE having one tool that can do SO many things. Less mess in my craft room!

DIY December Planner with the Singe Quill by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

The other final touches were some water color paint and some glitter that I added with the Glue Quill. I love the bit of holiday color and sparkle these details add!

Make Mini Grapevine Pom Pom Wreaths for Thanksgiving

Mini Grapevine Pom Pom Wreaths for Thanksgiving by Rebecca Lumiarias for We R Memory Keepers

Happy November!  It’s Rebecca with you today with some Thanksgiving home decor that’s close to my heart.  I grew up in the middle of a vineyard; my dad was a grape farmer for the first several years of my life, with vineyards and wineries becoming a prominent staple of our community.  Harvest was most often complete by this time of year, but my mother always had grapevine wreaths hanging around the house year-round.  This is also the time of year that she passed away, so I get extra sentimental and nostalgic in November, especially as we enter the holiday season.  This year, I decided to put that nostalgia to use with a fun project centered around mini grapevine wreaths.

Mini Grapevine Pom Pom Wreaths for Thanksgiving by Rebecca Lumiarias for We R Memory Keepers

This is also my favorite time of year for yarn pom-poms–they’re so cozy!–and I knew they’d play a big role in this project.  Here are a few things you’ll need if you’d like to re-create these:

Mini grapevine wreaths (4″ – 6″ diameter in center; found in most craft stores)

Patterned paper (Mine is from the Faded Floral stack by DCWV)

Yarn of your choice

Glue gun

Glue Dots

The Works All-In-One Tool (or Pom-Pom Makers and Paper Cutter)

Circle Spin & Trim

Embellishments of your choice, including ribbon

Grateful_Grapevine_Wreaths_by_Rebecca_Luminarias_03

I began by choosing my paper background; as mentioned, the papers are from the Faded Floral paper pad from DCWV; I chose these for their fall patterns and colors.

Grateful_Grapevine_Wreaths_by_Rebecca_Luminarias_04

It’s easiest to trim the papers down a bit before cutting out the circles.  The Works All-In-One tool is pulling double duty on this project, acting as my paper trimmer and I also used it to create my pom-poms.  For the 6″ wreaths, I cut circles that were 5 1/2″ so I cut my paper down to a size of 6 1/2″ x 12″; this ensures that there is enough excess for the points of the Spin & Trim to hold so the paper doesn’t shift while you’re cutting the circle.  The smaller wreaths have circles that are 4″ so the paper length I chose was 4 1/2″ x 9″.

Mini Grapevine Pom Pom Wreaths for Thanksgiving by Rebecca Lumiarias for We R Memory Keepers

You’ll need to decide what (if anything) to put in the center of the wreath.  My wreaths focus on giving thanks and gratitude, and I was able to use a couple of sentiments and designs from a sheet of 3×4 cards in the Faded Floral stack.  I chose one that said ‘thank you’ in the center of another wreath–it was a perfect fit for this project!  It also makes a good gift or gift topper.  I trimmed ‘Grateful’ down from another of the cards to place in the center of my second small wreath.

Mini Grapevine Pom Pom Wreaths for Thanksgiving by Rebecca Lumiarias for We R Memory Keepers

I used more of the cards in the background for my larger wreaths, but I used a ‘blessed’ and ‘thankful’ die with my Mini Evolution for the sentiments.

Mini Grapevine Pom Pom Wreaths for Thanksgiving by Rebecca Lumiarias for We R Memory KeepersMini Grapevine Pom Pom Wreaths for Thanksgiving by Rebecca Lumiarias for We R Memory Keepers

After my general designs were set, it was time to make some pom-poms.  I already had The Works tool out so I just used that to whip them up, choosing fall colors that complemented the colors of the papers I used in the wreath interiors.  I made a couple different sizes of pom-pom; with The Works Tool, the further your 2 plastic straws are from each other, the larger your pom-pom will be, so if you want to make a small one, place them closer together.  Also, the more yarn you wind around the plastic straws, the fuller your pom-poms will be.

The Works All In One Tool by We R Memory Keepers

It was time to assemble the wreaths; I hot glued everything in place.  The paper is the trickiest part because the wreaths are not flat on the back.  In some spots, I had to use a few glue dots that I molded with my fingers to act as an adhesive bridge between the paper and wreath.  *If you’re adding ribbon, add the ribbon BEFORE you attach the paper!

Mini Grapevine Pom Pom Wreaths for Thanksgiving by Rebecca Lumiarias for We R Memory Keepers

Glue the pom-poms on with hot glue.  I added some wood leaves that I got at the craft store as an extra bit of embellishment, too.

These would make cute hostess or teacher gifts, or just hang one on each bedroom door in your home–my mom always hung something on the outside of our doors for each season; these would have been right up her alley!

Make a Fall Card Set with the Foil Quill

Hello, We R friends. Enza here, and today I’m sharing a set of fall cards featuring the amazing Foil Quill system. How many times have you struggled trying to find the right embellishments for your projects after using up what comes in the collection? I’m obsessed with ephemera pieces, so those are the first ones to go for me. The Foil Quill system allows me to replenish my stash and have a bunch of die cuts ready to be used at any time.

Here are the cards I made. I used the gorgeous Again & Again collection by Pink Paislee. Both cards feature a horizontal design and they’re packed with beautiful gold-foiled leaves.

Fall Card Set with the Foil Quill by Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers

I started by selecting my designs from the Paige Evans USB Drive. I picked five different leaf shapes, which I imported into the Silhouette software to create a pattern. My initial idea was to fill out a 12×12 paper with the leaves and use that as card bases, but I changed my mind and decided to fussy cut them instead. The 12×12 Foil Sheets are very handy when it comes to this type of project!

For the first card, I created a big cluster behind the sentiment.

Fall Card Set with the Foil Quill by Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers

I trimmed a 5 ½ x 3 ¾ inch panel to adhere to the card base. I then cut another panel to place on top; this one measures 5 ½ x 3 inches. To create dimension, I used foam adhesive to adhere them down. After choosing my sentiment, I arranged the gold-foiled leaves behind it and, again, gave them dimension with foam dots. I finished the card with gold puffy stickers from the Again & Again collection.

Fall Card Set with the Foil Quill by Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers

The second card is very similar in terms of design, with two horizontal panels adhered together with foam adhesive.

Fall Card Set with the Foil Quill by Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers

This time I arranged the leaves in opposite corners to form two clusters. They are so pretty and shiny! Once those were in place, I added some floral die cuts and stickers, as well as a sentiment.

Fall Card Set with the Foil Quill by Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers

I love making my own embellishments with the Foil Quill. So many foil colors to choose from and designs that are versatile and fun.

I hope you enjoyed this post and have found some inspiration in it.

Have a great day!

How to Make a Gold Foil Card with the Freestyle Pens

Hello We R fans! It’s Aly Dosdall here today to share a cool and easy technique you can use with the new Freestyle Pens. Some of you may be thinking the same thing I did when I first heard about the Freestyle Pens: I can’t draw and I hate my handwriting, so how can I use the Freestyle Pens?

Well, there are SO many ways to use these pens that don’t require mad lettering or drawing skills. Here’s an easy and very cool way: create a modern gold foil brush stroke background for your handmade cards!

Gold Foil Handmade Card with the Freestyle Pens by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Adding gold foil details to your projects doesn’t have to be difficult or complicated. For this card I used a ruler and the Bold Tip Freestyle Pen to create a modern brush stroke pattern on plain cardstock as the background.

Gold Foil Handmade Card with the Freestyle Pens by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

The process was easy and I love the results. Let me show you how I did it!

Bold Tip Freestyle Pen by We R Memory Keepers

First, I plugged my Bold Tip Freestyle Pen into my USB Battery Pack and let it heat up for 10 minutes. I love that there’s a light on the handle of the pen so I know it’s getting power.

Foil Quill Magnetic Mat by We R Memory Keepers

Next, I prepped my cardstock by trimming it to size and placing it on the Magnetic Mat. The mat isn’t necessary for using the Freestyle Pens, but it sure is handy and saves on tape! I placed a piece of gold foil over the cardstock and secured it with two of the magnetic strips that come with the mat.

Gold Foil Handmade Card with the Freestyle Pens by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Then I placed my small magnetic ruler over the foil and started drawing rows of brush strokes across the cardstock. The cool thing about a brush stroke pattern is that it isn’t meant to be perfect or completely straight. The imperfections are what make it look modern and stylish, so that’s perfect for a freestyle pen, right? I just used the ruler to keep my lines somewhat uniform and separated.

Gold Foil Handmade Card with the Freestyle Pens by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

I covered the entire piece of cardstock with brush strokes, and it only took me a few minutes. It turned out to be a cool, modern and stand-out background for this birthday card!

Gold Foil Handmade Card with the Freestyle Pens by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

To complete the card I added a strip of patterned paper and some die cut ephemera pieces from the Dear Lizzy New Day collection. Then I added a few gold sequins to tie in the gold background.

How to Make Gift Wrap with The Works All In One Tool

Hello everybody! Soraya here today to share some galactic gift wrap inspiration using the new incredible board by We R Memory Keepers: The Works All-In-One Tool!

DIY Gift Wrap with The Works All In One Tool by We R Memory Keepers

To make this pretty wrapping you will need: gift wrap, ribbon, yarn, scissors and of course your All-In-One Tool!

How to Make Gift Wrap with The Works All In One Tool by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Gift idea 1: an envelope and a bow!

If you want to offer a card or a gift card along with money, you will definitely need to put them all in a cute envelope! Why not making your own? Of course it’s possible with the All-In-One Tool!

First of all,  place the magnetic guide on the board using the “envelope” tab.

How to Make Gift Wrap with The Works All In One Tool by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Cut the paper needed according to the dimensions on the measurement guide. My paper is 10×10 since I want my envelope to be 5×8.

How to Make Gift Wrap with The Works All In One Tool by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Place the paper along the edge of the guide following the right measurement instructions on the board. Score the first line, rotate 90° and repeat the process until you score the 4 sides. Then place the paper under the envelope punch to align the score mark. Punch the four marks. Now put the four corners in the corner rounder punch for a perfect finish. You get a gorgeous envelope!

Use the pegs that are stored on the left side of the board and place them in the holes at the bottom of the board. The distance between them will determine the size of the bow.

Wrap the ribbon around the pegs according to the instructions and make your bow on it. So easy and the result is perfect!!

You can now add your bow to the envelop and here is a fantastic way to offer a card!

Gift ideas 2: the pompom decor!

Place the pegs on the board and determine the pom pom size you want according to the distance in between them. Tie a knot with your yarn before wrapping it around the two pegs. The amount of wraps will determine the fullness of the pompom. Tie a piece of yarn around the center and cut all the loops on both sides.

Gift ideas 3: a stamped banner!

Why not add a fun mini banner on your gift? Let’s do this! Grab a 3×3 paper and align it on the guide according to the measurements on it. Cut on both sides of the paper and use the banner punch to create the holes. Pass a yarn through the flags and see how cute your mini banner is!

To stamp on each banner with perfect precision, place your clear stamp on the paper and press the transparent stamping plate on it.

Traveler’s Notebook with The Works All In One Tool

Hello and welcome. I’m Steffi and I will show you my next project. For this I worked for the first time with the great new tool “The Works”.

How cool is that!? So many things you can do with it. For my Travel Journal I tried two of the twelve features. It’s totally easy and very fast!

In a travel journal, small pockets are always very practical. You can store tickets, notes, photos, cards, etc. in them. I really like that.

This time I wanted to put several pockets for different things on one side. Small envelopes are best suited for this.

And with the “The Works” tool it’s very easy.

First I selected 5 different papers and cut them to the corrrect size according to the measuring guide that comes with the tool.

My page in the travel journal is 4 inch wide, so I made 3 x 3 1/2 inch envelopes.

Then I followed the instructions in the enclosed booklet to score the envelopes.

After that I punched small notches on the scored lines.

Once all 5 envelopes were finished, I glued them together. It is best to always try to keep an even distance. But I didn’t use an exact measure for this.

Finally, decorate the envelopes with words (photos, tickets, journaling,…). The pockets are ready and can be filled with all kinds of things.

Another feature of the tool I tried was for making tags. First I wanted to create tags in different colors and sizes and then tie them together at the top.

But I used a map of the city Santiago de Chile. Often you bring a small map from your travels. One would like to incorporate this into the album. But only how?

First I cut and folded the map. So that I have 3 sections in the same size.

Now fold the card and punch a hole first. For this there is a punch on the side of the device.

Then the folded card is put on the board and the corners are cut off. And the fold out map is ready.

Finally I attached a ribbon some small tags to the map. Just glue the map into the album and the fold out card is already integrated into the album.

I hope you enjoyed my contribution. With the “The Works” tool you can create a lot of great things.

I will sit at my desk again and try out more of them. Have a lot of fun with “The Works – All In One Tool”.

Yours, Steffi
