Hello everyone and welcome to the We R blog! It’s Eva Pizarro here today sharing a Planner Spread using my new Journal Guide tool.

Planner Spread with the Journal Guide by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

 

If you are a Planner Lover then this little tool is about to become your best friend! You can make check boxes, bullets, banners, use it as a ruler and create the most stunning goal trackers thanks to its unique rotating guide.

I am a simple planner kind of girl, so I used the Journal Guide on my daily spreads to add check boxes and create banners to highlight the most important events of the week.

The check boxes are always a must on my spreads and I love that I can make 3 or 6 check boxes and they are always perfectly aligned.

I also used the circle guide to create a small circle on each corner on my Planner to add the current week

Another tool that is ideal for your planner is the Word Punch Board. Most of the time I use it to add a main event or a sentiment like I did on this particular spread.

Planner Spread with the Journal Guide and Word Punch Board by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

On the back of each month I created a Goal Tracker with my goals for the month. Last month my goals were to become more healthy and this month I am focusing on my spirituality.

I used the circle guide feature to add 3 concentric circles. It is super simple: just put your pen on one of the guides and rotate it!

I divided my circles on 30 sections (one for each day) and added a legend on the bottom. The Journal Guide has a rounded angle and a banner section so you can create the round boxes and the banner too!

One of the things I love the most is that is very portable and fits inside my tiny planner. I usually leave it on the back next to my Heidi Swapp Stickers (You can remove the pages from the sticker pad and add them into your planner!)

Make a Pom Pom Keychain

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva on the blog today showing you how to create a cute Pompom Keychain using the new Jumbo Pompom Maker and Tassel Loom.

Pom Pom Keychain by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

When I think about fall and winter my first thought is yarn. Yarn is perfect for sweaters but also to create home decor and accessories! And now with the new Tassel Loom and the Jumbo Pompom Maker you can create beautiful pieces in minutes!

To create this BIG Pompom Keychain start by making a Jumbo size pompom. I used a winter color palette and combined 4 different yarn colors. It is fun to mix textures too!

Jumbo Pom Pom Maker by We R Memory Keepers

Wrap your yarn around both arms of the pompom maker, you can mix them evenly or you can leave zones with only one color to create a fun and different pompom.

Once you have wrapped your yarn close your Pompom Maker and cut the yarn between the arms.  Tie a piece of yarn in the middle of the Pompom Maker and open it to reveal your pompom.

Pom Pom Keychain by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

To create a tassel simply loop your yarn on the 4 inch size. Tie a piece of yarn in the middle and close the Tassel Loom.

Pick another yarn color and wrap it around your tassel, about 1 inch below the top of the looped yarn.  Cut the yarn with your precission scissors following the grooves on the bottom and remove the rod on top to slide the tassel out.

Decorate your tassel with colored beads and attach it to your pompom.

Pompoms are very popular right now and you can make these in a batch and give them as gifts to your kid’s teacher or coworkers. The Jumbo Pompom really makes a bold statement on this keychain

This keychain is so BIG and fluffy! I love it and I think it is perfect to hang outside of your purse with or without your keys!

Personalized ABC Book

Hello everyone and welcome to the We R blog! It’s Eva Pizarro here today sharing a tutorial on how to make a Personalized ABC Book using the Word Punch Board and the waterfall sleeves.

Personalized ABC Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

My little toddler started school this year and he has been learning letters and how to write his own name so I thought it would be fun to create an ABC book with some photos of some of his favorite things!

I started by using my Trim and Score Board to cut 4×6 letters and 28 3,5 inch square pictures, one for each letter.

Personalized ABC Book by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

Next, I used my Word punch Board to create all the words for the mini book. Because I wanted the letter to be closer together I punched the odd letters first placing the punches on the 1,13,25 and 37 marks. Then I changed to the even letters and placed my punches on the 7, 19, 31 and 43 marks.

Word Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

On each page I included the letter, a picture and a punched word.

I placed each page on the 4×6 inch Waterfall Sleeves, they are plastic so my son can practice the letters on top and then clean everything with a tissue. He couldn’t wait to try the book!

I made some cardboard covers and bound everything with my Cinch.

To decorate the mini book I used my Tassel Loom to create coordinating tassels. They were very easy to make! The Tassel Loom makes 3 different tassel sizes and it is foldable so you can easily store it and take it to crops.

Once you remove your tassel you will need to trim it. Simply wrap your tassel on paper and cut the border!

Aren’t those tassels cute? They are perfect to decorate mini books!

The cover is super simple because I know my son is going to use this book all the time! A few thickers and that’s it! The lovely cover paper is from My Bright Life collection by Pebbles Inc.

My son is really excited about his book and I love that he can practice letters in a fun and cute way! Have you ever made an ABC book? I think it is the perfect gift for a small children!

Emoji Letterboard Wall Decor

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva on the blog today showing you how to make a cute Letterboard sign using the new Emoji Punch Board.

Emoji Letterboard Wall Decor by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

 

 

One of the things I love most about this Punch Board is that you can create more than 19 emojis with just a few punches. The punch board is small and perfect to carry around for crops. Plus the punch board is really intuitive and you really don’t need the instruction booklet once you learn how the board works.

I used my Letterboard and some emoji faces to create a cute message for our living room.

To start this project cut some 1.5 inch x 1.5 inch papers with your Square Punch Board or use the perforated paper pad made exclusively for the Emoji Punch Board. This pad has 50 pages with nine 1.5 inch squares per pages. In total, 450 pieces in four different colors!

Create the emojis following the instructions on the booklet or create some emojis yourself!

Like I told you, the board is really easy to use and with the perforated paper pad you get perfect results every time!

I wanted to decorate my emojis a bit so I added black and red cardstock to the back of my emojis.  Punch some 1 inch black circles with the punch board and use your Sticky Thumb glue to assemble your emojis.

I added a simple phrase with my Letterboard alphabets and glued the emojis with 3d dots.

This is how my Emoji Letterboard message looks on my gallery wall. I love that it is colorful and adds a pop of color to my wall! Plus it reminds me to smile all the time!

There is so much you can use your emojis for! How about a reward chart for your little ones? That would be super fun! How would you use your emojis?

Organize Your Craft Supplies with Eva

Hi everyone! It’s Eva Pizarro here sharing a few tips to keep your supplies in order. Tip #1: Who loves punch boards? I know I do! I keep mine in a wire basket and leave all my blades and small accessories in a box inside. That way the blades don’t get lost and you can use the same blade for all your punch boards. When the blade is dull you start using another one! I also keep a file inside the basket with all my punch instructional booklets, when I need help using my punch boards I always know where to look!
Tip #2: the one thing that is ALWAYS on my desk is my pink Crafter’s Tote Bag. I keep all my pencils, glues, scissors, rulers, Crop A Dile and Corner Punches inside. It’s the perfect companion! I love to have all the thing I use in the same place. If you need to divide your Tote Bag even more just add a can like I did! I keep small accessories inside so they don’t get lost in the big space.
Thanks so much ladies for the helpful tips for storing your favorite craft supplies. Come back tomorrow for some more awesome ideas to keep your stash organized!

Word Punch Board Layout

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva  on the blog today sharing colorful layout using the new Word Punch Board.

Word Punch Board Layout by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

As soon as I saw the Word Punch Board I knew it would be one of my favorite tools, you can do so many things with it: make titles, journaling, tags and even use the punched letters to embellish a card or make a subtitle.

To create this layout I cut a few 5/8 inch strips of paper with my Trim and Score Board, I used some of my favorite Bazzill cardstock in coordinating colors.

Trim and Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

Next I placed all my elements of my layout in order to have an idea of how much journaling I could write on my strips of paper. I made marks with a pencil on all the edges of my strips.

Word Punch Board Layout by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I used my Word Punch Board to punch my journaling. Between words I left 3 small marks and I also added double sided tape to my strips before punching.

Word Punch Board by We R Memory KeepersWord Punch Board Layout by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I used the punched letters to create a subtitle for my layout, the letters already had the double sided tape on the back so it was easy to place them using my Sticky Piercer.

Word Punch Board Layout by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory KeepersWord Punch Board Layout by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

To finish my layout, I embellished it with some die cuts and stickers from the My Bright Life Collection by Pebbles Inc. The strips were very colorful so I added only a few pops of color here and there.

The journaling strips turned out beautiful! Just like I imagined them! To add an extra touch back the strips with colored cardstock.

Beach Ball Garland

Hello! Eva Pizarro here today on the blog showing you a fun garland inspired by this week’s theme: The Beach. When I think of the beach I think bright sunny colors and lots of fun! That’s why I created a super easy beach ball garland using my DIY Party Globe Punch and some cardstock.

Beach Ball Garland by Eva Pizarro 1

To make the garland I started with a 4 x 7 ½  inch white paper. The punch is very easy to use, just follow the instructions sheet that comes with your tool. Here are some quick photos of how I made mine.

Align the paper to the center of the punch. Press and move your paper left to the next alignment guide, punch again and move left to the raised V on base. Punch all your paper. Rotate your paper 180 degrees and do the same with the other side.

Beach Ball Garland by Eva Pizarro 2

To add a bit of color I punched some pink, yellow and blue papers and separated each punched panel. I glued them to my white cardstock globe with some string glue adhesive. If you want you can use paint to add color too!

Beach Ball Garland by Eva Pizarro 3

Assembly the bottom of the globe by interlocking the hooks behind each other.

On the top, interlock the hooks around the LED cord.

Continue this process and cover all your LED lights with beach balls

Isn’t this garland cute? You can use them as a summer decor or maybe for a party! If you want you can punch out some shapes on the garland panels and light the garland at night!

This globe punch is so cute and I love that I can use different materials to achieve different looks! And after I am done using it I can disassemble the beach balls and store them for the next party!

Beach Themed Mini Album

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva on the blog today sharing an easy Summer Mini Album made with some of my favorite We R tools.

Beach Themed Mini Album by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

This mini album is small but you can fit many pictures because it has pockets on all the pages. I used the “My Bright Life” collection from Pebbles Inc that it is perfect for everyday pages and mini albums.

Beach Themed Mini Album by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

To make the spine of your mini album use your Trim and Score Board to score a 4 inch tool paper every ½ inch, ½ inch and 1/8 of an inch. Repeat these 3 scoring guides for every page of the album .

Summer-Mini-Album-by-Eva-Pizarro-2

Place glue on the ½ inch strips and attach all of them.  You will attach your pages to these ½ inch papers.

To create your pocket pages trim your papers at 8 3/8 inch and score at 4 and 8 inch.

Glue your pages to your spine leaving the right side open.

Inside every pocket page your can include a journaling spot or a picture. To hold them a nice idea is to place tabs. I made mine with the Tab Punch Board and I bent the paper first to have a double tab.

Create the covers the same way you made your inside pages but make them a bit wider to cover all the inside tabs.

If your want to include a ribbon to close your album attach it inside the cover pages!

I tried my best to embellish tone on tone on all the pages using the My Bright Life die cuts and stickers.

Inside the pocket pages I placed journaling spots. To create the lines and make sure my ruler wouldn’t move I used my magnetic mat and ruler, I love the versatility of this tool! Use it to make straight lines, to cut with your craft knife of to trim the pages of your mini book!

Patriotic Party Favors

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva  on the blog today sharing a 4th Of July party favor made with some of my favorite tools, including the new Happy Jig!

Patriotic Party Favors by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepe

I think party favors are super cute, everybody is happier when they go home with a little something! These favors are easy and look great! You could use them for a party or maybe to give to your co workers or neighbors during the 4th of July!

To make this design I simply created a number 4 and added the “t” and “h” found on the “Thursday” word  (you can find it on their Instagram account @werhappyjig)

The silver wire was the perfect match to the “Land that I Love” line from Pebbles Inc.

Here are the Happy Jig coordinates in case you want to make one:

Start: R18

Big Pegs: N30

Medium Pegs:F28

Small Pegs: E22, G18, G20, G25, H22, L15, L21, Q23, R28, R32

Happy Jig by We R Memory Keepers

I also cut some stars on patterned paper. I used a template and then used my Magnetic Mat  and Craft Knife to cut the 2 star shapes at the same time. The paper doesn’t move because the magnetic ruler and mat keeps everything in place, super handy!

Patriotic Party Favors by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I used my Stitch Happy and the Stitch Happy Bakers Twine Thread to sew all around my star. Just before I finished the edges I put some red and blue candies inside.

To open the star simply tear the paper and enjoy the candy!

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!

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

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

We R Memory Keepers Details Scissors

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:

Big pegs: M12 M23

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.
