Hi! Welcome to the We R blog! It’s Eva Pizarro here today sharing some jewelry organizers for your rings, earrings, bracelets etc.

DIY Jewelry Holders by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I got my inspiration from this photo I found on Pinterest

These ring cones are super cute and I thought I could easily make them using my DIY party Board! I decided to use some papers from the Simple Life collection by Pebbles Inc. I simply placed them on my board and cut them using the C7 guide.

To give my papers a little more shine I used the floral art screen from Heidi Swapp and Minc Reactive Paint. It was my first time using this technique and I was amazed at how easy it was to get a perfect image! I let it dry and then run my paper through my Minc with gold foil, the result is gorgeous!

I rolled my cones slightly tighter and glued them with hot glue. To give the cones some weight I added white clay to the base. I pushed it in the base of the cone with my finger, and then let it dry.

To complement my ring organization I decided to make a paper bowl. I followed this tutorial but I used my Triangle score guide to mark my paper. I love this tool! You can create amazing geometric shapes with it!

I scored my paper every 1.5 inches and this way you can get 2 bowls out of your 12 x 12 inch paper. You can insert one bowl inside the other or leave it single like I did.

I love how this project turned out! It is very  simple and I think it would make a great gift for a friend!

Tab Punch Board Scrapbook Page

Hi! Welcome to the We R blog! It’s Eva Pizarro here today sharing a layout made with some of my favorite We R tools!

Tab Punch Board Scrapbook Page by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

The Tab Punch Board is perfect for making folders and planner dividers but I love to use it on my layouts too! IN this layout I use it to add hidden photographs and you could also use it to add a hidden journaling! I also used my Fringe and Score Tool to cut perfect strips of paper to create my background. I use a lot of paper strips in my layouts and this is a quick way to make them!

With the Tab Punch Board you can make tabs anywhere you want, and in different widths too, it’s really easy to use.

The perfect match for your tabs is the Typecast Typewriter and the tiny stickers strips you can find in their collection. I used my Typecast to add my journaling and titles for my tabs.

I placed my tabs underneath my picture, each tab has a photograph of the species we saw at an exhibit last spring.

For this layout I used the Tealightful collection by our sister brand Pebbles, I think it is perfect for my Spring photos!

Photo Sleeve Fuse Mini Album

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva here showing you a mini album I made with the Photo Sleeve Fuse Tool that’s perfect for documenting this year.

Photo Sleeve Fuse Mini Album by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

This year my goal is to document my daily life, because I know how easy it is get caught up with things to do and leave my project half done. So, I have prepared a small mini album with sleeves and all I have to do every month is print pictures and write my journaling.

For this project I am using the 4×6 waterfall sleeves, a Jen Hadfield DIY Home FUSEables Card kit and some paper from the same collection. I bound everything together with rings to be able to add pages easily.

I used the photo sleeves to create shaker pages. The kit includes the sequins so everything coordinates perfectly! To decorate the sleeves I added a few Fuseables die cuts–no glue needed! Just run your Fuse over them and you are done!

For each month I printed two 4×6 photo collages. If you did lots of things during that month you can add more pages!  Add embellishments over your photos with more Fuseables die cuts and add your journaling with your Typecast and some tags.

For each month I did a cover with the name of the month. If you have lots of pages for each month you could add tabs with your Tab Punch Board!

Another way to add journaling is to run your entire page through your Typecast typewriter. I love this look!

Here you have two more pages from last month.

Journal in a Shape with the Typecast

Hello! It’s Eva Pizarro on the blog today showing you a fun way you can use your Typecast Typewriter and let the journaling be an important element of your layout.

Journal in a Shape with the Typecast typewriter

To make the big journaling star I drew the shape with my electronic cutting machine, you could do it by hand but this was much easier for me! Use a pencil to make marks were your photo or title will be and then begin typing on your Typecast Typewriter with gold ink.

journal-in-a-shape-by-eva-pizarro-2

I used this gorgeous constellation paper you can find in the Typecast 12 x 12 inch paper pad as my base.  It has rose gold foil details that I think are perfect with the gold ink journaling.

Journal in a Shape with the Typecast typewriter

As a base for my photo I used journaling tags and basic cards from the same Typecast collection.

For all the other details I used embellishments from the Moonstruck collection by Pink Paislee. I added a cluster on the top left of my layout to balance that big star on the right.

With the Typecast Typewriter your journaling can become an embellishment and an important part of your layout. And the best part is that you can record all those feelings and stories in a fun and cute way! I hope you try this technique! It’s really easy and with the colored ribbons you have lots of possibilities!

Frame Punch Scrapbook Layout

Hi! Welcome to the We R blog! It’s Eva Pizarro here today sharing three ways you can use the Frame Punch Board for your next scrapbook project.

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

When I began to use the Frame Punch Board I was immediately drawn by the beautiful shapes left by the board. Those are meant to be scraps of paper but I thought I could use them in my layout. When you punch the four corners of your paper this is what you have left: a square with another shape in the center and 4 little pieces of paper.

frame-punch-board-layout-by-eva-pizarro-2

I used the squares as a background for my layout. I began with 2 ¼ inch squares and placed them diagonal. I cut some of the squares in half and filled all the spaces.

I also used those little scraps of paper to create the crosses on the upper part of my page. I think they would look awesome filling the entire page!

Finally I used my Frame Punch Board to create different frame sizes. I did three styles: one thinner, one larger and a polaroid style frame.

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

I used papers from the Snow and Cocoa Collection by Crate Paper and embellishments from the Take me Away line by Pink Paislee.

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

To add a little more depth and make my frames stand out I used 3d dots on some pictures and embellishments.

I love the quilt style background of my layout. The Frame Punch Board is definitely a must have! You can create awesome things when you use your tools in different ways!

Precision Press Valentine Cards

Hello everyone! Eva Pizarro today on the blog showing you some Valentine’s Cards made with the Rose Layered Stamps and my Precision Press

Precision Press Valentine Cards by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

The Precision Press is perfect for beginner stampers, you can stamp two or three times without risking to move your design. For this cards I created a background with my stamp, my Precision Press worked perfectly because you can see exactly where you are stamping!

Create a  heart mask with lightweight paper and put some white cardstock underneath. Hold everything with some washi tape.

valetines-cards-by-eva-pizarro-2

Place your stamp over your paper, close the Precision Press and stamp all 3 layers of your design.

valetines-cards-by-eva-pizarro-3

Once you are done move your stamp repeat the process.

valetines-cards-by-eva-pizarro-4

Fill your design with flowers and remove the card.

valetines-cards-by-eva-pizarro-5

Use your Typecast Typewriter to add a sentiment and a sewing machine to make some borders for your heart shape.

valetines-cards-by-eva-pizarro-6

I did two different cards. For the first one, I cut my design and adhere it to a folded piece of patterned paper. I did a zig zag stich all around my heart shape and used papers from the My Funny Valentine collection by Pebbles Inc.

For the other card I stitched all around my heart to make the heart stand out and then layered some patterned papers on the back.

I love how these cards turned out! Now you can create your own patterns with different colors and stamps! The Precision Press is going to make everything easier!

Throwback Thursday: Embellish Your Layout Title with the Fuse

Happy almost Friday friends! This week we’ve been focusing on using We R tools to embellish your projects. Today, we thought we’d throw it back to last year when Eva Pizarro showed us how to embellish the title on her scrapbook page with the Photo Sleeve Fuse tool and the FUSEables Collection. You can catch the entire post, with full instructions, on our blog HERE.

Confetti Title by Eva Pizarro_1

 

 

We just love how Eva layered different patterned papers from our FUSEables collection to add color to her title.

Then, using the Photo Sleeve Fuse, she heat sealed some pretty sequins inside the letters of her title with clear plastic sheets. How cool is that?

She added a FUSEables die cut heart from the ephemera pack as the center of her letter “O”.

Then, she finished off her layout with some more pieces of the ephemera pack. Pretty, right?

The Photo Sleeve Fuse and FUSEables collection are the perfect pair for embellishing layouts, cards, mini albums, and other paper craft projects. Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check in tomorrow for a great project using the Banner Punch Board with Font Punches to embellish. See you then!

Tab Punch Board Recipe Box | Free Printable

Hello everyone! It’s Eva Pizarro here on the blog today showing you a project to organize your recipes made with the new Tab Punch Board, and sharing a free printable recipe card for you.

Tab Punch Board recipe box by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

My husband is Italian and in his family food is really important. It is more than a meal, it is a tradition. My mother in law and my husband’s grandmother are amazing cooks, they know how to do everything. A few years ago I decided I wanted to learn a few of their recipes. This little Recipe Box is helping me get organized and not lose any of those precious recipes.

I made the tabs with papers from the lovely Snow & Cocoa collection by Crate Paper. To make the tabs simply punch on the corner of your paper, flip it and punch on desired width (I chose “S”), then use the cutting track to cut off the excess paper.

Tab Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

To make the course titles I used my Typecast Typewriter with gold ink and the Typecast Word Strip Stickers.

You can create your own recipe cards, or you can download the PDF below and print it on letter size paper.

I assembled my box and included a title made with a Label sticker from the Typecast Collection. Here you can see the tabs and the recipe card. The board was so easy to use! You can use it to create folders and organize your paper scraps too! Maybe that will be my next project!

Christmas Cookie Boxes & Recipe

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva here today bringing you a fun Cookie Box with a hidden message inside.

christmas-cookies-boxes-by-eva-pizarro-1

I have always loved to bake. In fact, before scrapbooking, I spent most of my free time cross stitching and baking.  Cookies are one of my favorite things to make (and EAT) during the holidays, so I always prepare a batch or two of simple sugar cookies. I think they are delicious and you can decorate them with kids–it’s a super fun activity! (I have copied my recipe at the end of this post)

A small box of homemade cookies it is a wonderful gift for friends, neighbors or for someone you want to thank for what he or she has done for you during the year.  Make your box with your 123 Punch Board and some pretty patterned paper. I am using the Holly Jolly line by our sister brand at Pebbles Inc. The boxes are very easy to make. You don’t need to glue or cut anything, the punch board does everything for you!

christmas-cookies-boxes-by-eva-pizarro-2

To make the hidden message, use your Mini Alphabet Punch Board to spell your word or phrase. My message is going to be “Fa La La”

christmas-cookies-boxes-by-eva-pizarro-3

With an embroidery needle and some twine create your vertical message.

christmas-cookies-boxes-by-eva-pizarro-4

Attach the end of your twine to the bottom of your box with some washi tape.

christmas-cookies-boxes-by-eva-pizarro-5

Place your cookies inside your box and wrap them with a strip of corrugated cardstock

christmas-cookies-boxes-by-eva-pizarro-6

Close your boxes and decorate them with twine, ribbon or a bow made with the 1,2,3 Punch Board and some gold acetate from the Clearly Posh collection.

christmas-cookies-boxes-by-eva-pizarro-7

I placed my message on top of my cookies so when you open the box it is the first thing you see. I glued two “Enjoy” stickers together to lift the message easily.

christmas-cookies-boxes-by-eva-pizarro-8

You could spell the recipient’s name or another phrase and adapt the box to other holidays like Valentine’s or Thanksgiving.

christmas-cookies-boxes-by-eva-pizarro-10

And there you have it! Cute boxes in minutes with the help of a few We R tools. The 1,2,3 Punch Board is one of my favorites! What’s your favorite Punch Board?
