Valentine’s Day Banner with the Fabric Quill

Hello We R Fans! Love is in the air and it is time to start creating for Valentine’s Day. I always love (ha) creating a special dinner for my family that night. And no self-respecting party is complete without decorations!

This banner made with several We R Memory Keepers tools will be the perfect touch to hang over the wall of our table!

The focal point of each pennant is this adorable heart drawn onto canvas with the We R Memory Keepers Fabric Quill Kit. The Fabric Quill kit comes with adaptors for all major digital die cutting machines and markers intended to be used on fabric. It was incredibly easy and smooth to use!

Valentine's Day Banner with the Fabric Quill by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

I began this project by adding some color to my canvas banners with the Cordless Marker Airbrush tool. I used pink and orange to create a subtle background of color.

After adding color to each pennant, it was time to run it through my digital die cutting machine. I added the correct adaptor for my machine into my second tool location. Then I removed the cover from the marker and placed it in the adaptor. The heart image was laid out in the software program and then sent to be drawn via the Pen Tool option. The tool went over the image twice, creating a strong and solid line. Impressive!

Please note that because of the thickness of the fabric at the top of the pennants, I placed it on the mat surface upside down. To accommodate this change, I also turned the image upside down in the software. Use the guides in the software that correlate to the mat surface for alignment.

Make tassels with The Works All In One Tool by We R Memory Keepers

Once the pennants were complete, I created four tassels using colored embroidery floss and the We R Memory Keepers The Works All-In-One tool. The included pegs and openings along with the instruction guide, helped make these easily.

To add more love, I punched glitter paper with the Clear Cut Punch. The small heart image added a sweet touch to each pennant.

When the pennants were finished, I string them back on their original cord. Then from that cord, I tied each of the tassels. This adorable project took minutes! I love tools that make crafting go smoothly!

One Tool, Three Ways: Planner Spread with the new Cordless Marker Airbrush

Hello We R Fans! Soraya here today to share 3 ways to use the new USB Cordless Marker Airbrush in your planner to create a fun and Christmas-y atmosphere!

One Tool, Three Ways: Planner Spread with the Cordless Marker Airbrush by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Idea 1 : add templates

Thanks to the stencil in the kit (or any stencil you already have) you can add more templates and tabs to your spread so easily! First of all, you need to cover around the other shapes on the template with papers to avoid ink splashes. Once everything is in place, you can insert the marker of your choice in the Airbrush and push it all the way in until it stops. Now you can spray your ink at about 15cm above the surface, slowly and regularly.

Repeat the process everywhere you need to add tabs on your spread.

Idea 2 : DIY stencil with the Word Punch Board

Did you know the the Word Punch Board could be used as a stencil? Well, if you need thin letters to fill your planner, you definitively need to try this.

One Tool, Three Ways: Planner Spread with the Cordless Marker Airbrush by Soraya Maes for We R Memory KeepersI used the Word Punch Board to create the days of the week. It was so easy and effortless! Just protect your surface and planner pages before using the Airbrush and voilà.

Idea 3 : create ombré colors

Prepare the word you want to color on a scrap of cardstock. Use chipboard or foam Thickers or any other porous surface. First of all, spray the darkest color from the top of the letters to the middle. Then swap the dark marker for the lightest one and start coloring from the middle to the bottom of the letters. Peel them off carefully and you have your ombré letters!

Tip: you can keep the cardstock with the negative letters to use it later on another project.
