Holiday Place Cards with the Word Punch Board

Hello, friends! Laura here today to show you how to create some pretty place cards for your holiday table. Sometimes the simplest décor can be the prettiest. These place cards are a cinch to put together and will add a little sparkle to your place settings.

Start by trimming your cardstock. My favorite size for place cards is to make them 4 inches by 5 inches. When folded in half the front of the card is four by two and a half inches. The trim and score board makes it easy to cut and score the place cards.

I cut out rectangles from gold sparkle paper to add to the front of the card with adhesive.

The word punch board is perfect for adding names to the place cards. I cut out the names from white textured cardstock. I trimmed a piece of patterned cardstock to go behind the cut-out letters. And then I cut a v shape at the end of each one.

You could stop here and simply add the cut-out names to the front of the cards, but I wanted to add a little something extra.

Paper die-cuts are pretty but can sometimes use a little extra touch. I used the crop-a-dile to add a fun gold star shaped eyelet to the top of each of the ornament embellishments. I added these to the place cards using a foam adhesive square.

These cards are not fussy; however, you could dress them up even more by adding a ribbon or additional embellishments to them. Creating a simple place card is great when you have a lot of guests you are hosting.

The gold paper makes them festive and fun! The word punch board is one of my new favorite tools for adding names or words to my projects.

Thank You Cards with the Pocket Punch Board

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here today with a trio of thank you cards. This time of year always reminds us to put our focus on gratitude and sending thank you cards is such an amazing way to express that sentiment. Using the new We R Memory Keepers Pocket Punch Board helped me make several thank you cards quickly, check them out.

The Pocket Punch Board is another wonderful addition to the punch board family! This tool allows you to make several different types of pockets. And of course, it comes with an amazing guide to create pockets in whatever dimension you need for your project!

Thank You Cards featuring the Pocket Punch Board by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

The reason I was pumped about the Pocket Punch Board was this patterned paper from Pebbles that I have been hoarding. The paper was full of gorgeous thank you tags and making pockets gave me the perfect way to use them on my cards!

Thank You Cards featuring the Pocket Punch Board by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Because of the tags I would be using, I chose the pocket design with the notch. The Pocket Punch Board is incredibly easy to use. With two cuts, three scores, and a punch, my pocket was done! On these cards, I made the 4” x 3.5” pockets.

Thank You Cards featuring the Pocket Punch Board by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

There is something about the notch at the top of these pockets that gets me! Maybe it’s the nostalgic feel of library card pockets? Whatever it is, I love the look!

All the tags on my cards were cut from patterned paper. I used my Cropadile to punch the holes in the tags and threaded thick twine through each one.

On each pocket, I added another thank you phrase, because, can you ever say thank you enough? I also added some stickers. While these stickers were clear, I placed them on white cardstock and trimmed them out. This made them pop more and stand out better.

Thanksgiving Placecard Ideas with the Word Punch Board

Hello friends!  Rebecca here with you today, and this is the time of year when family and friends gather to spend time together and eat a lot of big meals!  Today on the blog I’ve got some nifty ideas for table place cards with a fall décor theme.

Thanksgiving Placecard Ideas with the Word Punch Board by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

For each of the settings, I used leaves as part of my theme because they’re quintessential autumn and I can’t use enough leaves in my projects at this time of year!  To begin, I die cut several different styles and sizes in various cardstock colors ranging from off-white to pale mint, to charcoal gray and black.  You’ll also notice I didn’t stick to a classic fall color scheme; it’s easy enough to change the colors to warmer hues if you’d prefer a more traditional fall look.

Thanksgiving Placecard Ideas with the Word Punch Board by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

One of my first thoughts when it came to this project was how to personalize the seating assignments.  As much as I wish I had gorgeous calligraphic handwriting, I simply don’t.  Then I thought of the Word Punch Board, which allowed me to easily spell out any name or phrase I wanted.

Thanksgiving Placecard Ideas with the Word Punch Board by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

I considered different ways to display the placecards, shying away from the standard folded card and opting for the leaf shape or a tag tied onto some part of the place setting.  I love the look of a tag displayed with the silverware, so I have a couple options that way.  Each setting I’m sharing today is pretty simple, because when you’re cooking for a house full of people, and you have several seat assignments to make, you don’t need them to be highly complicated.

Thanksgiving Placecard Ideas with the Word Punch Board by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

On the first setting, I punched the name right onto the leaf.  This took a bit of maneuvering because my die cut leaf is curved and the punch board is straight, but the end result was worth it!  To achieve the curved word, I punched one letter at a time and I removed the tray from the board, flipping it upside down so I had a better idea of the letter placement.  I also started in the middle with the ‘R’ to be sure the word would be centered.  I punched the R, then the A’s, and then the S and H.  These little tricks helped the process go smoothly and quickly.

We R Memory Keepers Word Punch BoardWe R Memory Keepers Word Punch Board

I layered the name leaf with a solid black leaf; the contrast in cardstock colors helps the punched-out word to be seen.  I tied the leaf duo to a set of utensils with jute twine, adding a swatch of lace underneath and a single–real–eucalyptus leaf to the top.  The final touch was another die cut leaf in a different style tucked under the cutlery; I cut that leaf from some Crate Paper Merry Days paper.  This place setting can be easily styled up or down, too, depending on the mood of your entertaining.  Omit pieces like the lace and the add-on leaves for a simpler do; choose satin ribbon instead of jute and add some stitching to the name leaf for something fancier.

Thanksgiving Placecard Ideas with the Word Punch Board by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory KeepersThanksgiving Placecard Ideas with the Word Punch Board by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

Another option for the utensils is this tag.  Instead of a name here, though, I used a favorite phrase—GIVE THANKS—punched into more CP Merry Days paper.  This style works great when you’re allowing your guests to choose their own seats, but still want to dress up your table.  I punched the words on 2 thin strips of patterned paper and connected them with a length of brown glitter tape.  I adhered the note onto blush pink card stock and set an eyelet on the end with my Crop-A-Dile tool.

Thanksgiving Placecard Ideas with the Word Punch Board by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

The back of the tag is blank, so this is a fun opportunity for your dinner guests to write down something they’re thankful for.

Thanksgiving Placecard Ideas with the Word Punch Board by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

I tied it to the utensils with rose gold shimmer twine and added a short branch of eucalyptus under the tag, propping it up off the plate.  You can choose your own phrase or tag style, but this one is nice for recording gratitude and/or memories.

Thanksgiving Placecard Ideas with the Word Punch Board by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

Another, more versatile way to use the Word Punch Board on your Thanksgiving place cards (or tags, if you’d rather), is to use the letters you’ve punched out to spell the names of your guests.  This is a great option for longer names or more complex shaped place markers.

Thanksgiving Placecard Ideas with the Word Punch Board by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

This super-simple set up is just a trio of die cut leaves (one of them is stamped, too), and glitter tape letters.  Glitter tape is an awesome medium to use with the punch board because you omit the timely step of gluing each itty-bitty alpha onto the tag.  American Crafts makes my favorite glitter tape and I used it here in the Brown Sugar shade to spell EMILY.

Thanksgiving Placecard Ideas with the Word Punch Board by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

Another eyelet and some jute twine tied to this pumpkin stem, and this easy seat assignment is complete.  Switch out the colored fabric pumpkin for real mini pumpkins for a more natural table setting.

Thanksgiving Placecard Ideas with the Word Punch Board by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

Speaking of natural place settings, I got extra-creative and incorporated a pomegranate into my last sample.  This came about because our neighbors have an overflowing pomegranate tree and they were generous to give us a grocery bag full of them!  The bright red adds amazing color to the table and sticking a trio of leaves into the stem makes for another easy decoration.

Thanksgiving Placecard Ideas with the Word Punch Board by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

I used the punched glitter alphas again, this time in Chestnut tape.  The red fruit and simply spelled-out names are perfect for Christmas decorating, too.  Use star or pine tree die cuts in place of the leaves for a festive feeling.

Thanksgiving Placecard Ideas with the Word Punch Board by Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

Whether you’re going all out with a fancy tablescape and assigned seating, or keeping things more casual, I hope you’ve found these place cards pretty and functional.  The Word Punch Board is such a handy tool for personalization, and I’ll certainly be choosing one of these styles for my own Thanksgiving table this year!

Framed Halloween Decor with the Crop-A-Dile

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a really fun Halloween décor project! It’s no secret how much I love making Halloween décor and this project makes me so happy! String art is all the rage and I wanted to make a spider web. Not wanting to get a hammer and nails involved in this project, I wondered if I could create one with eyelets. Well, yes, yes, I could!

Framed Halloween Decor with the Crop-A-Dile by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Following an image I found online of a spider web, I began by drawing a series of straight lines onto a piece of cardstock in a star or asterisk shape. (Total of 4 lines creating 8 spokes.)

Framed Halloween Decor with the Crop-A-Dile by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

At the ends of each spoke of my shape, I set an eyelet with my Cropdile. An eyelet was also placed in the center where all the lines intersected. For those eyelets, I needed the Cropodile Big Bite to be able to reach father into my piece of cardstock. Finally, in between each eyelet, another one was set.

Using baker’s twine, I began stringing through the eyelet openings. I followed the straight lines I drew first by pulling the string up through the center eyelet and down through the end spoke eyelet.

Then I followed around the outside “circles” of eyelets with the rest of the twine. Thank you pattern for keeping me straight.

I foam mounted the strung cardstock to a piece of black cardstock. The entire panel was placed on a piece of Pebbles Spooky Boo patterned paper, cut to the size of my frame. The sticker, from the same collection, was way too perfect! May contain spiders…ha!

Three Ways to Use the Crop-A-Dile on Your Handmade Cards

Hello and welcome to our blog! It’s Eva here today showing you how to use your eyelets in three different ways to create some fun cards.

Handmade Cards featuring the Crop-A-Dile and Eyelets by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

The new Eyelet Cases are absolutely amazing. They come in three different hues (pastel, bright and metallic) and have medium sized eyelets and shaped eyelets like stars, flowers and hearts, how cool is that?

The first way you can use your eyelets is simply to pass some twine or thread between 2 of them. I began my card by making a few points where I wanted my eyelets to be. Tip: Use your Square Guide to make perfectly aligned lines every time!

Square Guide by We R Memory Keepers

Next, I used my Crop a Dile to poke holes on my card and set the eyelets

Crop-A-Dile and Eyelets by We R Memory Keepers

On each thread I wanted to hang a letter so I used my Word Punch Board and matching cardstock to punch the word “Hello”

We R Memory Keepers Word Punch BoardHandmade Cards featuring the Crop-A-Dile and Eyelets by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory KeepersHandmade Cards featuring the Crop-A-Dile and Eyelets by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I thread some embroidery floss trough the eyelets and embellish them with sequins and other small things.

Handmade Cards featuring the Crop-A-Dile and Eyelets by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

Another way you can use eyelets is to cover an entire shape like a circle, a heart or a flower. The heart eyelets were perfect for my “I Love You” card. I cut the sentiment with my electronic cutting machine and then drew the heart shape on a small piece of cardstock.

Handmade Cards featuring the Crop-A-Dile and Eyelets by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I set all my eyelets very close to each other making sure all the white space of my shape was covered. Finally, I put some colored cardstock on the back and glued the top of the card with some 3d dots.

The third way you can use eyelets is simply to accent the card, like you would use enamel dots!

For this card I used my Precision Press Advanced to stamp a star background on my white cardstock. This tool is really amazing, it made my job really easy and the best part is that you can go on and stamp again if you didn’t make it right the first time!

I added a sentiment “I Love You More Than All The Stars” and added some gold eyelets here and there.  Super simple and fun!

Make a Fall Banner with the Happy Jig

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here today with some home décor for fall. It seems that I am always pulled towards creating projects for our house. Adding a personal and handmade touch is wonderful, but its also great to be able to add a trendy touch without breaking the bank. I mean, who can change all the pillows and blankets out all the time? But by using my We R Memory Keepers tools and some patterned papers, I can create a lovely piece of seasonal décor, and be a bit fashionable as well.

Fall Banner with the Happy Jig by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

I began by using my Banner Punch board and that fantastic checkered paper from Pebbles new line, My Bright Life. I am seeing that black and white gingham everywhere, and I love it! The Banner Punch Board is a constant friend on my desk, making quick work of creating pendants that are the exact size and style I want.

Fall Banner with the Happy Jig by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

After layering some other papers, die cut images, and ribbon, I started to create the leaf image from Copper Happy Jig Wire. The booklet that comes with the Happy Jig provides clear instructions for making the shapes.

Fall Banner with the Happy Jig by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

After following the image and placing my pegs, I wrapped the wire around. The wire shapes come together easily. The dimension they add to a project is really cool!

Tip: I use a liquid adhesive to secure my wire shapes to my projects.

Another We R Memory Keepers tool that comes in handy when making banners is another on of my old favorites, the Crop-A-Dile. To punch the holes for the twine (used to hang the banner), simply stack all your pieces together and punch through every piece at once. No mistakes and no misalignment.

Back to School Teacher Gift Idea

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a teacher gift that is sure to leave everyone with smiles! Quick, easy, and thoughtful is the best kind of teacher gift you can make. Follow this fun idea and not only will it meet all those criteria, but the tools from We R Memory Keepers will make it fully customized, adding an extra-special finishing touch!

Back to School Teacher Gift Idea by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

This gift has a few parts to it, but my favorite is the smiley face emoji sticky-note pad! Yes, those smiling faces, while finishing the tag sentiment by saying, “All SMILES because you’re my teacher,” are also sticky notes! What teacher wouldn’t love to have those cute supplies on their desk?! I know this former teacher thinks they are fantastic!

Back to School Teacher Gift Idea by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

One tip to start, be sure and get the sticky notes that are completely backed in adhesive, not just on the top edge. This will make your notes stay together better.

Back to School Teacher Gift Idea by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory KeepersEmoji Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

I trimmed my sticky note paper down to the size for the Emoji Punch Board, which is 1.5” square. Then I proceeded to punch out the smiley face version. I love that they are so many faces to be made, but this worked for today’s project best. Stacking 3 notes together worked well while punching, more pieces of paper than that was too thick. As I finished punching each stack, I layered them together. Seriously fun and easy. This would be a great way to get your kiddo involved in crafting as well!

Back to School Teacher Gift Idea by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To create a tag for the sticky notes, I used the Tag Punch Board to layer two cardstock tags together. On each of the tags, I stamped the sentiment using the Precision Press Advanced. Arranging the stamps on the press made it so that the sentiment could be stamped precisely on each tag, and if a mistake was made, another tag could be created easily. Not that I would know anything about that…

Accents of patterned paper from the DCWV Sweet and Sassy pad were added for color and fun.

Back to School Teacher Gift Idea by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To personalize each jar, I punched a strip of patterned paper with the Word Punch Board. Adding each teacher’s name like this was not only easy, but it will help my kiddo remember whom to bring the gifts to as well. It also puts a name to the face of the person he must look at if he eats all the candy.

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.
