Hey there We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here. Today, I have a tool to show you that will quickly become your new favorite tool, seriously! I’ve been playing with the ribbon cutter and I’ve fallen in love. I’m sure you will too.
I have a huge stash of ribbon scraps in my drawer. I pulled out a LOT of ribbon scraps and played with the ribbon cutter for a long time. I learned a LOT while playing with the pile of ribbon. I learned that this ribbon cutter will cut most kinds of ribbon (including sequins, velvety, satin, silk, and grosgrain). I learned that you don’t want to cut ribbon that is cotton. Cotton ribbon will burn and turn black. By the end of my playing time I had a pile of ribbon scraps with perfectly seared edges on my desk.
I decided that I wanted to use this variety of ribbon scraps on a layout. To start my layout I grabbed my laser square and started lining up ribbon scraps across the middle of the page.
I continued lining up and adhering ribbon in the center of my layout. I can’t even tell you how thrilled I am with how this layout turned out. I think the variety of ribbon make such a great background.
I also used the laser square to make sure my photos and titles were straight on the layout as well.
I’ve done a similar technique with ribbon before but I had to stitch the ends of each ribbon so they wouldn’t fray. This time, I didn’t have to do any stitching to keep the ribbon from fraying, the Ribbon Cutter did all of that for me!
Thank you for stopping by the We R Memory Keepers blog. I hope you’ll add the Ribbon Cutter tool to your stash…you won’t be sorry!!

Hey there, We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here. I’m so excited to share with you a really fun, really easy family photo light box. You only need a few supplies to create this awesome piece of home decor.
I started by gathering a few supplies. All you’ll need is an 8×8 photo light, a few photo light rub-ons, and printable backlit film.
The first thing I did to create this fun project was to print my photo on the backlit film. Even though I had an 8×8 frame I printed my photo at 5×7. I love that I could print my photo from home on my inkjet printer.
I printed the photo on an 8 ½ x 11 piece of photo film. Before I added the photo to the Photo Light Box I trimmed the film to an 8×8 piece with the photo in the center. I added a few rub ons above and below the photo to create the “Hugs & Kisses” and “Family” sentiments.
This project was SO easy and SO fun to create. It’s such a fun addition to my living room decor. Thank you for stopping by the We R Memory Keepers blog today. I’ll see you again soon.

Hey there We R Memory Keeper friends, Becki here, to share a layout that I created with the Tab Punch Board. You guys, this punch board is my new favorite tool! The layout I created to share with you today documents my word for 2017 and a few of the goals I’ve set surrounding my word.
I started by cutting several 4×6 cards. Then I added tabs to the top of each card with the punch board.
After I had my tabbed 4×6 cards created, I was ready to put them onto my layout. I used the Trim and Score Board to measure ½” lines on white cardstock.
I layered four tabbed cards on the top portion of the layout and layered 4 tabbed cards on the bottom portion of my layout. I adhered my photo in the middle of the layered tabbed cards. The brightly colored tabbed cards make the perfect layers to draw the reader’s eye to the photo.
The title of the layout is my word “habit.” I added the title above the typed journaling above the photo.
I used foam adhesive to give the tabs a little bit of dimension and texture. I wanted the tabs to come off the page a little bit. I also added a few stickers to the tabs to fit the theme of the layout.
The finishing touch on the layout is a few fussy cut flowers that I tucked around the tabs and the photo. I can’t wait to add file tabs to many many many upcoming projects. I LOVE this little tool. I’ll see you again soon.

My husband and our three kids are my top priority. I LOVE being a mom!! My family means the world to me. I love a clean house, a good book, and a really great cup of hot chocolate (in the Winter) or a glass of raspberry lemonade (in the Summer). Oh, and chocolate, don’t forget that I love chocolate. I also love a great find in a thrift store. My most favorite things to look for are books and dishes…a girl can never have too many dishes, or books.
