New Years Eve Party Favors with the Foil Quill

New Years Eve Party Favors with the Foil Quill by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a fun treat to celebrate the end of not only 2019, but an entire decade! Snacks seem to be the way to my heart, so coming up with creative ways to make the packaging a little more heartfelt is always on my mind. Check out how I used the We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill and a few other tools to make a quick tag!

New Years Eve Party Favors with the Foil Quill by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

I began by typing out my wording in my digital die cutting machine software program. I adjusted the size of the text to fit my project and sent it to my machine. Keep in mind that you want to get your Foil Quill tool heating up for 5-10 minutes before you send your project to your machine. I find that if I plug it in as I sit down to work, that is plenty of time.

One more tip, make sure your foil is completely flat and secured to your cardstock.

Once the wording is foiled on your cardstock, use the We R Memory Keepers Tag Punch Board to create your tag shape. I always create a test tag first from left-over paper, to see if I like the angle of the edges.

The Tag Punch Board can also punch the hole at the top of the tag. The lines on the board make it easy to get in centered. Which is good for me, I have centering issues. I tend to put everything too far to the left!

Wrap ribbon around the top of the sealed treat bag and put both ends through the opening at the top of the tag. Tie a bow and adjust as necessary.

Please note my bag was secured closed with a twist-tie first.

Using the small star Clear Cut Punch, I punched a few stars from glitter paper and added them to the center of my bow.

Upon looking at my ribbon, I realized that the ends did not look finished. To add some curl to my wired ribbon, I grabbed one of my stylus tools and wrapped the ribbon around the ends. Such a fun look!

Fall Cider Bar with the Foil Quill Freestyle Pens

Hey guys, Aly Dosdall here. Fall is on the way, and before you know it, it will be sweater weather! One of my favorite fall traditions is apple cider. I have a hot cup almost every night during the cold weather (sugar free, of course). I’m so inpsired by my love for cider, that I decided to create this fun idea for a fall get-together–an apple cider bar!

Throw this together after an evening at the corn maze or pumpkin patch, and enjoy some yummy warm drinks and fall snacks! This project features the Foil Quill Freestyle Pens, and I love the sparkle the foil adds to this pretty fall scene.

For the fall leaf backdrop, I cut out some leaf shapes with my Silhouette Cameo 3. I used some shapes from the Foil Quill USB Drives, and others from my personal library of SVG files.

The focal piece of this party decor is the banner, which I created with the Banner Punch Board, some black smooth cardstock, the Alphabet Punch Board and papers from the DCWV Inc Cider Woods stack, available at Joann Stores. To add foil to the banner, I used a metal magnetic ruler, magnetic mat, and the Calligraphy Tip Freestyle Pen to get the wide lines.

I also made some bottle tags for the apple cider! I love the copper foil with the cider–it looks so warm and inviting.

I handwrote these tags, and then punched them out with the bracket Clear Cut Punch. If you have great handwriting, it looks pretty cool, but even if you don’t love your handwriting, it’s a wonderful way to add a personal touch to your projects–your own writing in foil! So cool!

Here’s how I made the bottle tags–super easy! I cut 3×7 inch blocks of patterned paper, rounded the corners with the 3 Way Corner Rounder, scored them in half, and then punched a 2 inch hole in the center of one half. (You can save the leftover 2 inch circles for another project.)

To make the cinnamon streusel muffin topper I used one of the Heatwave Stencils, and punched the letters out with the Tag Clear Cut Punch.

Again, I used the Calligraphy Tip Pen to fill in the letters from my Heatwave Stencil. This would also make a great cake or cupcake topper!

Then I made some embellishments for the cups holding the cider mix-ins: one cup of caramels (drop them in and let them melt, then stir) and one cup of cinnamon sticks (place them in and stir, then let them sit).

Supplies for this project are available at Joann Stores.

The technique for making these is one of my favorites to use with the Freestyle Pens! I printed the fall images on thin copy paper and then placed the printed images over the foil, which was over my cardstock. The foil transfers beautifully even with the copy paper on top. You can also use vellum or tracing paper. Then I punched out the foiled designs.

The images I used are PNG files from the Holiday Foil Quill USB Drive. Each USB drive has both SVG and PNG files, and you can open the PNG files in a word document and print them for tracing!

I love how the Freestyle Pens add such a special touch to my fall project. I can’t wait to use them for holiday projects too!

Kids Craft: Door Hangers

Hello, We R friends. Enza here, and today I’m sharing a fun project that you can easily make with or for your kids. I love crafting with my kids. My oldest daughter is very creative and truly enjoys playing with papers and We R Memory Keepers tools. When I asked her to give me an idea for this assignment, she said: “Why don’t we make those door hangers we’ve been talking about a lot lately?” She was so excited, I couldn’t say no 🙂

I used several tools, some old some new.

Door Hangers Kids Craft by Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers

We started by trimming patterned paper from the gorgeous Sparkle City collection by Shimelle to measure 5.5×6.5 inches; then using the Banner Punch Board, we created the banner shapes to use as our base.

Door Hangers Kids Craft by Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers

One of the tools I’ve been enjoying lately is the Ribbon Stitching Tool – so easy to use, and the effect is super pretty! We placed the paper between the magnetic guides and pierced it with the provided tool. The guides kept the paper from shifting, so the cut was precise and sharp. To pass the ribbon through the holes, we used the adhesive needle that comes with the tool.

Once that was done, we cut another banner, smaller than the first one, and machine-stitched it to the base using the Stitch Happy Sewing Machine. We also punched stars from patterned paper with the new 1 inch Clear Cut Punch. We decided to create some dimension by layering the stars and adhering them with foam dots; embellishments from the same collection finished the front.

For the handle, we just hot glued pom pom ribbon to the back and added two paper tassels from the Crate Paper All Heart collection on one side.

How to Embellish a Scrapbook Page

Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here today to share fun ideas to embellish your projects using the Mini Clear Cut Punches and the Mini Precision Press!

How to embellish a scrapbook page with Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

First of all, let’s create beautiful dimensional flowers with the heart punch! I used the mini pattern swatches from Paige Taylor Evans’ Whimsical collection to make a bunch of colorful hearts. Thanks to the clear base of the punch I could easily center the heart on the tiny papers (so that I will be able to use them on another project)!  Then I folded every heart in two with a foam dot inside to keep the dimension.

School Themed Scrapbook Layout with the Clear Cut Punches

When I saw the small 1 inch Clear Cut Punches, I was very happy. I have the larger Circle Clear Cut Punch and I LOVE it. Because often you want to punch out something in the middle of the layout or mini album, like maybe a pattern from a paper. Then these punches are perfect for it!

 

School Themed Scrapbook Page with the 1 Inch Clear Cut Punches by Steffi Ried for We R Memory Keepers

My daughter is in first grade and she started school last year. It was a very exciting day for her. In Germany the children get a school bag. I made it myself with my daughter. And so that these memories remain forever, we also took some pictures of our daughter with her school bag.

School Themed Scrapbook Page with the 1 Inch Clear Cut Punches by Steffi Ried for We R Memory Keepers

I wanted to assemble the photo from many small parts. First I printed the photo 3 times. Then I punched a lot of small squares out of the photo with the Square Mini Clear Cut Punch.

School Themed Scrapbook Page with the 1 Inch Clear Cut Punches by Steffi Ried for We R Memory Keepers

For the first photo I punched out the parts in a row. For the next photo at different places, because the parts are to be put together afterwards.

School Themed Scrapbook Page with the 1 Inch Clear Cut Punches by Steffi Ried for We R Memory Keepers

The photo is placed on the lower part of the punch and the magnetic disc on top. So the photo does not slip. Then it is punched out with the upper part by pressing on it. So very easy!

I haven’t punched out the third photo yet. Because I only wanted to see where I still needed parts of the design when I was assembling it. It was a lot of fun. It was like a puzzle. Step by step I put the pieces together with 3D glue dots.

My daughter is in first grade and she came to school last year. It was a very exciting day for her. In Germany the children get a school bag. I made it myself with my daughter. And so that these memories remain forever, we also took some pictures of our daughter with her school bag.

Because of the different height of the parts, the photo has got more dimension. I really like the effect. I tried it for the first time and didn’t know how it would turn out. I will definitely do it again. I think with the Circle Punch it would look great too.

School Themed Scrapbook Page with the 1 Inch Clear Cut Punches by Steffi Ried for We R Memory Keepers

When the photo was finished, I punched small squares into the layout at different places. Additionally, from a pink cardstock. Then I decorated the squares with sequins, stickers, tassels etc. Everything that fits a school child. Here there are endless possibilities.

DIY Graduation Party Decor by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

The new Clear Cut Punches come in 4 new shapes: heart, circle, square and star; and they are the perfect addition to your craft tools. I love that I can punch anywhere I want and that I can see exactly were I am cutting before punching.

First of all, I made some toppers, I used my star Clear Cut Punch and attached the shapes on some skewers, easy and fast!

I also made a banner with this lovely polka dot cardstock from Bazzill. I cut some banners with my Banner Punch Board and then used my Ribbon Stitching Tool and some yarn to embellish the top.

With the Circle and Star Clear Cut Punches I made a quick garland. I used my Hot Glue Gun and some cotton yarn to assemble everything.

What graduation party would be without a graduation hat? I used my Square Clear Cut Punch, a strip of paper and a mini tassel to create mini hat for my straws. They are super cute!

Hello lovely crafters! Soraya here today to share a tutorial to make adorable tiny mail boxes for Valentines Day. You’ll need to grab your 1-2-3 Punch Board, the Envelope Punch Board, the Trim & Score Board and some pretty Valentines papers! Let’s go!

Valentine's Day Mailboxes by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

First of all, create a rectangular box using the 1-2-3 Punch board (I love this tool so much!!) following the instructions on the guide.

We R Memory Keepers Trim and Score BoardValentines Mail Box by Soraya Maes-3We R Memory Keepers 123 Punch Board

Once you’re done with the box, create the opening drawer and the slot that will allow you to put in and pick up your love letters! I used the handy cutting tool and a metallic ruler. Place some adhesive tape all around the folds and stick one side at a time. Finish with the Mini Glue Gun to secure the bottom of the box.

DIY Valentine’s Day Decor with the Big Happy Jig

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva here today sharing with you a Valentine’s Day decoration using the new Big Happy Jig.

DIY Valentine's Day Decor with the Big Happy Jig by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

If you love the regular size Happy Jig, then you are going to LOVE this new tool! It is perfect to create home decor projects with handlettering words and symbols. The new BIG Happy Jig works uses a wider wire and you can also use neon wire! How cool is that?

To create my decorations I started with a 10.5 inch wide piece of cardstock. I measured 2.5 inch on each side and created the banner. After that, I used my Crop a Dile to punch holes on the bottom and top of my wall banner.

We R Memory Keepers Crop A Dile

I used my Big Happy Jig to create an ampersand with gold wire. This design is from the regular Happy Jig tool guide, you don’t need to change anything, the designs work perfectly on both tools.

One thing I love about the Big Happy Jig is that you can remove the peg case and the mat it is flat so it doesn’t use much space on your craft room.

We R Memory Keepers Big Happy Jig

Once you are done with your design bend the edges so you can insert the design on the banner.

We R Memory Keepers Big Happy Jig

I also used one design from the Happy Jig Instagram account (werhappyjig) and made two connecting hearts.

We R Memory Keepers Big Happy Jig

Use cotton wool and your Tassel Loom to create 5 inch tassels and one 2 inch tassel. I decorated the tassel with Stitch Happy Gold Thread so they coordinated with the wires.

Use the 5 small tassels to decorate the bottom of your banner and some thickers to write the “you” and “me” words.

I love how the ampersand floats over the banner!

For my other decor I used the 2 inch tassel and some wood beads to decorate the two hearts. I made this tassel with all 3 colors of yarn, I think it looks very cute!

Finally I made a heart banner with some hearts I cut with my Clear Cut Punch. I used the “Loves Me” collection by Pebbles Inc because the colors matched perfectly my yarns!

Throwback Thursday: Year in Review Mini Album

Hello We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here to share a fun “Year in Review” mini album with you. I used three of my favorite We R Memory Keepers tools to create this mini album. I absolutely love how this album came together. When I started creating the album I thought that I would include 5-10 of my favorite photos from 2017. As I gathered photos, I realized that there was no way to narrow down the number of photos to 10 to tell the story of our year. 2017 was a very eventful year for our family. This year in review album has over 20 photos.

Year In Review Mini Album by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

I streamlined the creative process by printing all my photos at 4×4. In this album all the photos are on the right side and the journaling is on the left. To create a space for all the journaling, I used the frame punch board to create 3 ½ x 3 ½ square frames.

Year In Review Mini Album by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

Then, I printed the journaling to fit inside the frame.

On a few of the pages, I used the clear cut punch to create a window so that the reader could get a sneak peek of the photo that was on the next page.

It was so easy to create a cute heart window using the clear cut punch. I love that I was able to move the punch around the page so that I could make the heart window where ever I wanted to on the page.

Even though, the album contains a LOT more photos than I originally intended, I love the story that it tells.
