Wood Burned Hammer for Father’s Day

Happy Friday friends! Thanks for stopping by. Aly with you again, and I’m excited to share a Father’s Day gift idea featuring a tool that represents a new crafting adventure for me–the USB Power Heat Tool with the wood burning tip!

Father's Day Wood Burned Hammers by Aly Dosdall with the USB Power Tools from We R Memory Keepers

My husband doesn’t raid my craft room often, but when he does 9 times out of 10 it’s to borrow my small hammer. So, I figured what better gift for Father’s Day this year than a wood burned small hammer just for him!

While at the hardware store I decided to make a pair of them so I could quote an old 90’s rap song by MC Hammer that’s a bit of an inside joke at our house, so I grabbed wood handled hammers in two different sizes.

Heat Wave Pen Stencils from We R Memory Keepers

Since this was my first attempt at a legit wood burning project I did a little research and practiced on some scrap wood ahead of time. I used one of the Heat Wave Stencils and traced the letters on the wood handle lightly with a pencil first to help keep them uniform and straight. Warning: don’t use any of the Heat Wave stencils with the wood burning tool or the stencils will melt! You can trace the words you want onto a piece of paper first to test it out and see if it fits on the handle of the hammer.

I used my Precision Glass Cutting Mat as my work surface so I didn’t accidentally burn or melt anything. And I love that I didn’t have to worry about finding a work area near an outlet, or getting out an extension cord out. I simply plugged my heat tool into my phone charger! Genius idea We R!

Another thing I love about this tool is that is has interchangeable tips, just like the other USB Power Tools. So while I’m new to wood burning and don’t use that tip very often yet, I can change it out for the Fuse tip, which I use all the time.

Here are a couple of tips I picked up through trial and error that will help if you’re new to wood burning:

  • let the tool heat up for 15-20 before using it so it’s hot enough
  • use a glass or metal work surface–this tool gets hot
  • trace your design with a pencil first
  • practice on scrap wood before burning on your actual project
  • GO SLOWLY–if you rush, you’re likely to mess up and you can’t click “undo” with wood burning
  • use a light color soft wood for best results
  • start with straight lines first, then try curves/circles

I hope this idea has inspired you to make something special and meaningful for the men in your life that you’ll be celebrating this weekend. If you haven’t given wood burning a try, go for it! It’s really fun and creates a lasting gift or craft project.

Father’s Day Candy Tie Card

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here today with a cute and yummy card for Father’s Day. After seeing quite a few candy ties online, I got to thinking that I had a pretty fantastic tool from We R Memory Keepers that would make creating a candy tie awfully easy. I sat down at the computer and drew out a tie template, while my We R Memory Keepers Fuse Photo Sleeve Tool heated up!

Father's Day Candy Tie Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

This tie was created to be filled with candy. It’s a fun treat to add to a special card for a special dad in your life.

Father's Day Candy Tie Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

After printing out the tie template, it was traced onto patterned paper. Because I was using Pink Paislee Wild Child 6×6 patterned paper, I had to trace it in two parts. Any other sized patterned paper will work perfectly.

Father's Day Candy Tie Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

After cutting out the tie image, the left-over paper was placed on a Fuse Mat, under a Fuse Clear Sheet. This was done to create a template to work from to create a candy holder.

By following along the inside of the template with the Fuse, the candy holder will fit perfectly. DO NOT seal the top of the tie yet, or there will not be an opening for the candy to be placed inside.

Before adding the candy, adhere the clear candy holder to the patterned paper tie. If done after it is filled, it makes it difficult to adhere the full candy holder to the paper, and subsequently, the card.

To help get the candy inside the pocket, a We R Memory Keepers Embossing Stylus was used to push the candy down inside. (Do not worry, it was washed before using.)

Once the candy holder was full, the clear part was placed onto the Fuse mat, and the patterned paper was tucked underneath the mat. Using the Fuse, the top was then sealed.

Father’s Day Scrapbook Page

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva on the blog today sharing with you a fun Father’s Day Layout using some of my favorite tools!

Father's Day Scrapbook Page by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

 

When I received my Swivel Knife I knew I wanted to use it to make some stripes for a background. The blade in the Swivel Knife rotates so you can cut freely and get curvy lines easily.

To make my background I made a 1 inch mark on each edge with my Layer Guides and cut some stripes from top to bottom

We R Memory Keepers Crafter's Essentials

 

Next, I removed some cardstock stripes and when I was done I put a patterned paper on the back. I used this lovely paper from the Cool Kids pad from DCWV.

We R Memory Keepers Swivel Knife

I made a heart collage with some photos from my husband and son and then I wrote my journaling on the same heart shape using my Typecast Typewriter.

We R Memory Keepers Typecast Typewriter

After that, I cut my journaling out and placed it in the middle of the layout with the photo on top.  I used a brad to hold my journaling and my photo together, to read the journaling simply rotate the photo!

I used my Detail Scissors to fussy cut some elements from the Cool Kids Paper Pad.

I love that ribbon shape! To decorate it I bend a stamp shape over my Acrylic block and stamped the image.

For my title I used my Happy Jig and wrote the word “we” and “dad”.

If you want to write dad here are the coordinates:

Starting Peg: P14

Medium Pegs: J12 J23 F14 F25 K18 M17

Small Pegs: N15 N20 N26 J20

I placed my words next to the heart shape and attached them with strong liquid glue.

Father’s Day Mini Book

Hello friends, Laura here this Monday with a Father’s Day gift idea for the special dad in your life. I created a little mini accordion banner book that says, “I ♥ DAD” when opened. There are a few places to add photos to make the gift personalized for your dad.

Father's Day Mini Book by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I started by created ten banner shapes using my paper trimmer and banner punch board. I cut each rectangle to 4 ½” x 6 inches using the Trim & Score board. I chose various shades of blue paper from the DCWV Nautical Mile cardstock stack.

We R Memory Keepers Trim and Score Board

I lined up one edge of the longer side of the paper with the 4-inch mark on the banner punch board. This will create a somewhat uneven banner because there will be an extra half inch on the left side of the banner shape.

We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch Board

Use the Trim & Score board to score each banner shape at ½” on the left side of the banner shape. This will be the flap we use to connect all the banner pieces together.

We R Memory Keepers Trim and Score Board

Next, I used the mini alphabet punch board to create the letters I, D, A, and D.

We R Memory Keepers Mini Alphabet Punch Board

I created a striped heart with the Clear Cut heart punch.

Father's Day Mini Book by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I wanted to make little tags to place each of the letters and heart onto. The tag punch board made this easy. I cut rectangles that were 2 ½ x 3 ½ inches using my Trim & Score board. Then, I used the tag punch board to create the tag edges and punch a hole in the top.

Tag Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

I added a red eyelet to the top of each tag using my Crop-A-Dile.

We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile

Now that I had all the pieces cut out, it was time to assemble the book. Use adhesive to attach each letter and the heart to a tag shape. Then, attach each tag to a separate banner piece. To assemble all the banner pieces together, use adhesive to attach the flap of one banner to another one. Leave a blank banner between the letters and the heart on either side.

Father's Day Mini Book by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

There will be a slight overlap where you glue the banner pieces together. Simply trim off the excess paper using your scissors.

Father's Day Mini Book by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

To create a more finished book, I glued the first and last banner piece to the back side of the banner piece next to it, so there was a total of ten banner pieces, but only eight banner pieces show when the book is spread out. I also added a little ribbon into the pieces I glued together on the front and back, so I could tie the book together on the left side when it was closed.

Father's Day Mini Book by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

 

Once everything is glued together you can fold the banner pieces like an accordion to close the book.

The book was cute as is, but I thought it would be fun to add pictures of the kids to the inside. I resized black and white photos of the kids to 3 x 4 inches. I printed them on my home computer, trimmed them down and added them to the blank pages. On the front cover I matted the picture on an extra piece of patterned paper that matched the letters inside.

Father's Day Mini Book by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

There is room to add two more pictures on the last two pages of the book, so you could add up to a total of five photos.

Father's Day Mini Book by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Dad can flip through the album with it tied together, or you can spread it out like a traditional banner if you untie the ribbon.

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.

Summer Card with the Precision Press Advanced

Hey there We R fans, Nancy here today with a punch of summer crafting! Let’s gather some favorite tools and create a quick and simple seasonal card.

Summer Card with the Precision Press Advanced by Nancy Damiano for We R Memory Keepers

The We R Tag Punch Board is the best tool for creating tags of all sizes. A few simple adjustments and you have the perfectly cut tag and hole punch to boot. Tags are a great way to anchor smaller embellishments on a card.

Summer Card with the Precision Press Advanced by Nancy Damiano for We R Memory Keepers

Use foam tape under the tag to create a shadowbox with a bright yellow background. This is a great frame for the flower embellishments. Place a blue flag across the circular opening and center the floral sticker in the center with foam tape for a little lift.

Summer Card with the Precision Press Advanced by Nancy Damiano for We R Memory Keepers

If you want a perfectly centered and stamped sentiment every single time, don’t forget to pull out the Precision Press Advanced! This tool guarantees beautifully stamped images just where you want them. I use this tool on every single card I create.

A few brightly colored patterned papers and a handful of We R Memory Keepers tools are the perfect combination for all your card making needs.

Handmade Cards with the Evolution Advanced

Hello We R friends and Happy New Year!

It’s Chantalle with you today and I’m so happy to be able to share some more ideas with you in 2017. Being a part of the We R Memory Keepers team continues to be a dream come true! I’ve been playing with my clever Evolution Advanced machine and created some cards with a bit of a twist.

Evolution Advanced Card Set by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Embossing and die cutting has never been easier, thanks to the Evolution’s universal platform system. For this interactive birthday card, I have used a couple of metal die shapes – a Bow and a part of the new Gift Card Holder die set.

evo-cards_2

I’ve used a piece of the die set, which would normally create the bottom section of the gift card holder sleeve. The die was placed over some DIY Party Vellum, onto my Lifestyle Crafts Magnetic Mat. This mat is AWESOME. I love the fact that I can make use of exact placement (just look at how tight the spacing is on that piece of vellum!)

evo-cards_3

I folded the sleeve up and taped it shut on three sides, as per the fold guides. The sleeve has been embellished with some beautiful ‘Moonstruck’ Washi Stickers and Ephemera from Pink Paislee.

evo-cards_4

The sleeve lifts off to reveal a little battery operated birthday candle. Make a wish!

I’ve adhered the candle to a Moonstruck journalling card from the Ephemera pack. Underneath, I marked out where the switch for the candle sat and used my kraft knife to carefully cut out the area, enabling the receiver to switch the candle off when not in use.

evo-cards_5

My next card makes use of a bit of embossing. Did you know that you can use your Next Level Embossing Folders with more than just paper?

evo-cards_6

I remember using this technique in a class I taught once, which was super fun! I’ve cut down a sheet of thin metal into about business card size. I then placed this inside my Heart embossing folder and ran it through my Evolution. Doesn’t it look fabulous! One of the hearts has been given a splash of colour with an alcohol marker.

Note: This cute embossing folder comes in a twin pack with a dot pattern one as well.

evo-cards_7

To finish off my shining tag, I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch a hole near the top. I then used my Crop-A–Dile Scallop/Stub Corner Chomper tool to give the top corners a decorative edge. The tag was finished off with a bit of thin black ribbon and a coordinating tag, created with one of my favourite tools – the DIY Tag Punch. My tags were placed onto some black cardstock, over which I have adhered a 3×4 journalling element, cut from a sheet of  #1 Moonstruck 12×12 paper.

evo-cards_8

To echo the dark script print I’ve used on my card, I have used some black glitter texture paste through a script stencil.

evo-cards_9

 

The ends of my ribbon were also given a professional finish, thanks to my Ribbon Cutter. If you use a lot of ribbon on your projects you will love how easy it is to cut and seal your end pieces on giftwrap or bows etc.

evo-cards_10

evo-cards_11

My third card makes used of some die cutting as well. Instead of making a formal card, I’ve created a little gift envelope, which has been fashioned out of some Bazzill Printed Acetate and my Envelope Punch Board. (Another must have tool for your stash!!)

evo-cards_12

I love that one can grab a sneak peek of what’s inside the envelope. I’ve typed up a personalized birthday wish for a friend directly on to the journaling card, using my Typecast Typewriter.

evo-cards_13

Below the note is another journaling card, which I have cut to a specific shape to hold a special treat, in the form of a gift card. Using the same Gift Card Holder die set from earlier, I went about die cutting, with only the bottom bit of the die set, which has the notch area to hold a card as shown below.

evo-cards_14

Pop a card into the notch and you’re all set to give a great gift! The top note and bottom card holder have been joined together with an eyelet, set by my Crop-A-Dile.

evo-cards_15

I hope these ideas will inspire you to try a different take on your next special card. Thank you for joining me today.

Til next time!

Holiday Treat Piñatas

Hello We R friends and happy holidays to you all.

I’m sure many of you will be preparing special treats to take with you to gatherings or for simply enjoying while snuggling up on the couch!

It is has become a bit of a tradition in my circle of friends to gather together and celebrate the passing of another year while enjoying delicious food and of course, each other’s company. For our annual get together, I am going to bring along some tree-shaped cereal treats which are a snap to prepare and to show them off, I’m complimenting my plate with a custom Christmas Tree Mini Piñatas.

treepinata_1

These little piñata kits are new additions to the oh-so-fun DIY Party Mini Piñata collection.

treepinata_2

You will find everything you need to put them together in one convenient kit. They are a great way to whip up some charming décor and are an easy and fun activity for kids!

treepinata_3

What Christmas tree is complete without some twinkling fairy lights? Mine has been given a bit of a customization in the form of some battery-operated lights, hidden inside the piñata shape.

To start off, I traced a rough idea of where I wanted my light string to be on the tree. I then punched some holes into the card with a paper piercer, (which I made slightly larger with the back of a pencil so as to accommodate the LED bulbs.) I opened the bottom of the tree up, extending the opening/closing flap part so I could fit my hand inside. I then popped a little light bulb into each of the holes I had just made. The excess bulbs were tucked inside the piñata and the battery pack placed near the opening for easy access.

I then went about decorating my tree with fringe tape, carefully working around the bulbs sticking out. As a final touch, I popped on some stickers, which come included in the kit. With enough supplies to create 3 Christmas Trees, you can really have fun decorating each one differently

treepinata_4

treepinata_5

Here you can see a peek of how the lights are stored inside the piñata. This was a string of 20 lights, which fit inside comfortably.

treepinata_6

Switch them on, and my little tree comes alive!

treepinata_7

I’m sure you’ll agree that these shapes are just so adorable! What’s fun about including the lights inside, is that once these goodies are all gobbled up, I can keep my little tree on my desk or as part of our holiday décor in our home.

treepinata_8

I just love the little light show dancing off the servingware.

treepinata_9

These DIY Party Mini Piñatas also come in this super cute snowman shape. Best of all, he won’t be melting anytime soon!

treepinata_10

If you want to make these yummy cereal treats, here is the recipe, which I found online:

 

Ingredients:

4 cups miniature marshmallows

6 cups Rice Krispies cereal (or equivalent)

Green food colouring

Sprinkles/decorations

 

Instructions:

Prepare a baking tray by lining it with aluminum foil and spraying it with cooking spray.

 

Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat.

 

Add the marshmallows and stir until they are completely melted. Stir in the green food coloring.

 

Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the Rice Krispies.

 

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Using a piece of wax paper that has been sprayed with cooking spray, press the mixture firmly into the pan.

 

Allow it to cool completely. Lift the foil from the pan and cut out shapes by hand or with a cookie cutter.

 

Decorate with frosting (I used icing sugar mixed with a bit of water) and sprinkles.

 

Store in an airtight container for up to three days.

 

Tip: Work quickly or the marshmallows will start to go stringy.

Wishing you and your families joy and peace

Pop Up Christmas Cards

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva Pizarro on the blog today sharing a quick tutorial to make these lovely pop up cards.

christmas-house-pop-up-cards-by-eva-pizarro-1

The new Evolution Advanced Pop Up Dies are so pretty! I can assure you that you can make beautiful cards and wow all your friends. Who doesn’t love a 3D card?

To make these cards I started with my base. I used my Precision Press Tool and one of the layered stamps to make the cover. The Precision Press lets you stamp multiple times over the same image, so it’s perfect for beginners! I like to use a small piece of washi tape to make sure my project doesn’t move.

christmas-house-pop-up-cards-by-eva-pizarro-2

To make the houses simply run your dies through your Evolution Advanced. I used some papers from the Holly Jolly collection by Pebbles Inc. The houses are beautiful! I think they would look amazing as a village or as an advent calendar too!

christmas-house-pop-up-cards-by-eva-pizarro-3

Last but not least I made my envelope with my Envelope Punch Board.

christmas-house-pop-up-cards-by-eva-pizarro-4

With the Envelope Punch Board you can make envelopes in different sizes. Use your favorite paper for the outside or line the inside of a solid color envelope for a special touch!

christmas-house-pop-up-cards-by-eva-pizarro-5

You can decorate the houses with the dies included in the set and you can include pre-made die cuts or stickers, just make sure they fit inside the card once closed.

This is the second card I made, I only changed the colors and some embellishments.
