Shaker Pocket Page with the Fuse

Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here with you today to talk about pocket pages, and share with you some tips and tricks to use your favorite tools and embellishments to showcase your photos in a very cool way!

Shaker Pocket Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

If it’s the first time you’re diving into the pocket page world, here are some product ideas that will perfectly fit: I used the amazing FUSEables embellishments, some washi tape, sequins, colorful papers and some We R Memory Keepers journaling cards.

So here are some fun tips for you to create: my journaling is made with the fabulous Typecast. I love the vintage touch it gives to the pockets!

Use your Staple Punch Board to get extra dimension while assembling the die cuts together !

When using the Fuse Tool, the Laser Square will be perfect to guide you! All you have to do is placing the Fuse Mat just under the pocket page before starting fusing!

Use the Laser Square to get straight lines with your Fuse tool.

You can place the FUSEables embellishments directly on the pocket page ! Plus, you will get a beautiful stitch effect. Before closing the top of this section, insert some sparkles in it!

Play with layers and add more FUSEables diecuts !

Geometric shapes can be fun too: for example in this pocket, I cut 2 patterned triangles and used my Fuse Tool to separate them. I also placed some FUSEables die cuts on the top of the pocket for the final touch.

And for this last pocket I separated it in three parts: one for the photo, one for the sequins and one more for the journaling part. The Fuse Tool is so awesome for that! Feel free to compose your pocket page the way you want!

Shaker Baby Cards

Happy Friday We R friends! I hope you’ve enjoyed all the baby inspiration this week. Today I’m going to finish things off with a set of boy & girl shaker baby cards that I made with my Photo Sleeve Fuse, along with some FUSEables plastic paper and embellishments.

Shaker Baby Cards by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

 

Shaker Baby Cards by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

I started by heating up my Fuse tool for 10 minutes. It’s important to let it heat up long enough to get the best results. Then, I used some 2 inch plastic pouches to create shaker pockets, filling them with sequins, and fusing the four sides to the back of the FUSEables card windows. Then I fused the back flap of the card front closed, for a more finished look on the inside of the card.

For the girl card, I added some FUSEables plastic ephemera to the card front with my Fuse tool. No adhesive necessary with the FUSEables plastic paper and Fuse tool! And, I love the way the fused lines look like stitching.

Shaker Baby Cards by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

I added a small self-adhesive label where I had typed the word “BABY” with my Typecast typewriter. I love how easy it is to add text to my projects with the Typecast!

To make the boy card, I made the circle window into a baby rattle by cutting a handle from some FUSEables paper with my Cameo.

Next, I cut a ring out with my circle cutter to go around the shaker window and glued it to the card front.

I finished it off with some FUSEables ephemera, again with only my Fuse tool and no adhesive!

Shaker Pennant Scrapbook Page

Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here with you today and I’m very excited to share a new project! Let’s make 4 fun shaker pennants with the Photo Sleeve Fuse Tool along with the amazing Fuse Mat to embellish your layouts!

Shaker Pennant Scrapbook Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

To make these fun shaky pennants you will need one or two  waterfall photo sleeves (depending on how big you want your pennants to be), the Banner Punch Board, your Fuse Tool and mat, FUSEables papers and embellishments. You will also need scissors and an adhesive runner.

Shaker Pennant Scrapbook Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

First of all, grab your Banner Punch Board and make 4 little pennants (mine are 2.5 inches) in 4 different patterned FUSEables papers.

Shaker Pennant Scrapbook Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Then place one pennant in a waterfall photo sleeve, Fuse the smallest edge and use your scissors to trim all around (don’t forget to leave one inch margin to close it after). Insert some sequins inside and again use your Fuse to close the pennant. So easy!

And this is what you get when you make them all! Aren’t they so cute? You can insert sequins, sparkles, glitter… or any little embellishment you want if you are making bigger pennants! The possibilities are endless as long as you have a Fuse to make it!

Shaker Pennant Scrapbook Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

I also used my Fuse Tool to place some embellishments all around my photo and at the top of my layout as well. I just love the « stitch » effect you have with the FUSEables pieces!
Shaker Pennant Scrapbook Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

To place my 4 pennants on my layout, I simply added a FUSEables surface first, then I repeated the same process with the Fuse Tool to stick them on it.

And here is the final result with some extra details! I hope you had fun joining me today for this new project! Don’t hesitate to use your Fuse Tool and some waterfall photo sleeves to create extra embellishments for your projects just like I did, it’s so much fun and easy! You will love it!

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.

Confetti Title by Eva Pizarro_3

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?

Confetti Title by Eva Pizarro_4

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

Confetti Title by Eva Pizarro_7

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!

Year in Review Layout with the Fuse

Hello everyone, Wendy here today to share one last look at our 2016.  When I began looking at the pictures that told the story of our year I was baffled at how to get everything in one layout.  Thanks to my Fuse, I was able to print varying sizes of pictures based on their importance and clearly portray our year to the fullest.

2016-year-in-review-by-wendy-antenucci

After printing my pictures in various sizes, I began working on this layout as if it was a puzzle.  Arranging things in the order they happened and so the sizes fit well in my spaces.  My next piece that I knew I wanted to include was the year punched from the Mini Alpha punch board.

2016-year-in-review-by-wendy-antenucci-2

After establishing the basics of the layout, I used the Fuseables collection to dress up the empty spaces and bring unity to my layout through color and images.  I love that I didn’t have to take my different elements out of their spots, but instead I was able to fuse the items right to the front of my page, adding dimension and making my job so much easier!

2016-year-in-review-by-wendy-antenucci-3

 

I had a lot of pictures of friendships we made this year that I wanted to include in the layout, but there wasn’t room for each individual picture.  Using the Fuse and the Instax waterfall photo sleeves, I was able to add in 5 additional pictures of friends that made a huge impact on our lives.

2016-year-in-review-by-wendy-antenucci-4

Design Tip:  Adding different layers to a layout adds interest to your page and makes it stand out more.  In my page, I have the pieces in the photo sleeves, then I have the embellishments on top of the page fused on, and to add one more layer I chose to pop up the bird and add in an element that could sum up our year.

2016-year-in-review-by-wendy-antenucci-5

Our year has been a whirlwind one, one full of change, but as a family we are thankful for all that we have experienced this year.  The friendships and adventures will always hold a dear spot in our hearts.  Thank you to We R Memory Keepers for a great year creating here with you all!

Pregnancy Keepsake Album

Hello WeR fans and welcome back to the blog today. I recently learned that a friend of mine at work is expecting her first child and so I have made a little keepsake notebook/album for her to record the wonderful adventure she has just embarked on!

Pregnancy Keepsake Album featuring the Photo Sleeve Fuse and FUSEables plastic paper by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers.

This album has been created using predominantly Fuseable items. I think the plastic cover will stand up well against the elements and be resistant to marks etc. It comprises of a notebook/journalling section and a little photo album her growing belly each month.

Pregnancy Keepsake Album featuring the Photo Sleeve Fuse and FUSEables plastic paper by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers.

The overall album size is slightly larger than a 4×6 print. I wanted to have enough space around the flip album so that it didn’t feel squashed. I’ve trimmed two sheets of Fuseable paper so the same size and then fused them together using my Fuse Tool. A tip when using the Fuse tool on these papers is to go pretty slowly. You may have to go over a couple of little spots again if they haven’t joined completely as the paper is pretty robust.

Pregnancy Keepsake Album featuring the Photo Sleeve Fuse and FUSEables plastic paper by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers.

Once I had fused my cover, I moved on the paper part of the album.

I used 3 sheets of paper from my 8,5 x 11 Typecast paper pad and trimmed the pages in half. I then mixed the pieces up so that they were all a different combination and then adhered them, back to back, creating 3 double-sided sheets. I then folded the sheets in half and placed them inside each other to create a little booklet.

hey-baby_4

I attempted to glue this paper part into my cover using a hot glue gun but the glue didn’t create as strong a bond as I had hoped, so I machine stitched the booklet to the Fuseable cover.

hey-baby_5

Here is a look inside the booklet part…

 

I have embellished the pages very simply, using a few Fuseable die cut shapes. Over these shapes, I have run my Fuse Tool with the little wheel attachment over parts of the die cut to create a bit of interest and texture. I think it looks a bit like faux stitching. I have adhered these Fuseables to the paper using a strong double sided tape.

Pregnancy Keepsake Album featuring the Photo Sleeve Fuse and FUSEables plastic paper by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers.

Towards the back of the keepsake album is a photo album which has been created using 4×6 Waterfall Fuse sleeves. I have fused 10 together with my Fuse Tool and then machine stitched this little album in to the cover as well.

hey-baby_7

Over the top of each photo sleeve, I have popped a monthly journalling card. These are from the Typecast Pink 12×12 paper pad. The intention here is for her to be able to make notes pertaining to a specific month. I know right now she is craving caramel popcorn, so she can mark that on her November card!

Pregnancy Keepsake Album featuring the Photo Sleeve Fuse and FUSEables plastic paper by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers.

A July due date… congrats will certainly be in order! You’ll notice I have used a few more Fuseable die cuts to embellish these photo sleeves as well.

hey-baby_9

Another little feature which I have built in to this album, is an extra storage pocket in the back cover. Instead of sealing the back cover shut, I have left it open and popped a little notch in to the back with a circle punch. The Fuseable paper punches beautifully!

hey-baby_10

My friend can use this pocket for little keepsakes and if she wants to keep it closed, she could use a decorative paperclip or some pretty washi tape.

Adding a date stamp and a nice pen will finish this gift off perfectly.

FUSEables Shaker Card

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here today with a card using the Fuse Tool from We R Memory Keepers, along with the products from the rest of the Fuse line. Shaker cards are so trendy right now and the Fuse makes it easy to create! With a couple of simple steps, you will have a handmade card ready to send to a friend to brighten their day!

say-hello-fuse-kimberly-crawford

 

I started by heating up my Fuse Tool and placing the Fuse Mat onto my work surface. Then I grabbed the Everyday Fuse-ables Cards and Envelopes Kit. Inside the kit are pre- scored and pre-die cut cards, envelopes, sequins, plastic pockets, and embellishments. Everything you need to make several shaker cards.

say-hello-fuse-2-kimberly-crawford

I filled one of the small, clear pockets with sequins. Then using the Fuse and the ruler, I slowly pulled the Fuse Tool tip along the edge of the ruler, with gentle pressure.

say-hello-fuse-3-kimberly-crawford

say-hello-fuse-4-kimberly-crawford

After one pass along the ruler edge, the pocket is now sealed. How easy is that?

say-hello-fuse-5-kimberly-crawford

The card base from the kit is a tri-fold card. The genius part about this design is the fact that you can “hide” your shaker pocket inside the card. Using the Fuse Tool, I adhered the shaker pocket to the inside of the card, behind the die-cut circle.

say-hello-fuse-6-kimberly-crawford

After enclosing the shaker pocket inside the card, I sealed the inside card edges closed by using the Fuse Tool around the edges. Not using the ruler this time, but going slowly free-hand. You can see the “stitched” lines I created on the inside of the card.

say-hello-fuse-7-kimberly-crawford

A couple of Fuse embellishments from the kit where also added to the inside. They too “stick” to the Fuse card base with a simple pass over of the Fuse Tool tip. Once again, leaving those “stitched” lines behind. I love the look and texture they add!

say-hello-fuse-8-kimberly-crawford

Once the inside of the card was complete, I added several Fuse embellishments to the front. Once again securing them with the Fuse Tool.

say-hello-fuse-9-kimberly-crawford

Not only is making a shaker card with the Fuse Tool a breeze, but adding the embellishments to complete the card is just as simple with the Fuse Tool.

Who will you send a shaker card to?

Good Monday morning friends! We’re so excited you’re here with us to celebrate the art of Memory Keeping this week. We R Memory Keepers has a long history of providing quality products of all kinds for memory keepers. So this week we’re going to focus on how our current products provide support and creative options for crafters who are passionate about preserving memories.

 

Hello everyone! Eva Pizarro on the blog today sharing a layout made from start to finish with the Fuse Tool and the FUSEables Collection

Confetti Title by Eva Pizarro_1

In the FUSEables collection you can find a card kit (See my previous post using this kit) and also a paper pad and some die cuts. I used these last two to create a confetti shaker title in minutes!

I started by cutting my title with my die cut machine. You could also use the Evolution Advanced and your dies! The paper cuts perfectly!

Before making your shaker letters make sure you use your Typecast Typewriter to include some journaling. The FUSEables paper runs perfectly on the typewriter as well! Just make sure you let the ink dry before touching it with your hands.

Confetti Title by Eva Pizarro_2

To make your title, layer some patterned paper and some plastic from a page protector behind your page, hold everything in place with some washi tape and use your Fuse Tool to seal all the edges. Leave a small opening on top to fill the letters with confetti later.

To fuse that many layers of paper you will need to go slowly and apply a bit of pressure.

Confetti Title by Eva Pizarro_3

Fill your letters and seal the top of your title.

Confetti Title by Eva Pizarro_4

Decorate the rest of your layout with some embellishments from the FUSEables Ephemera Pack and some strips of patterned paper.

Confetti Title by Eva Pizarro_5

I love the marks that my Fuse leaves on the paper! They look like machine stitches!

Confetti Title by Eva Pizarro_6

If you want you can decorate on top of your page protector too, like the little heart I added on my “O”

Confetti Title by Eva Pizarro_7

The journaling turned out great! Finally I can type directly on my 12 x 12 paper!

Confetti Title by Eva Pizarro_8

Have you used the FUSEables collection before? I am sure you are going to love it!

Have a great day!

Rio-Inspired Scrapbook Page

The summer games begin this Friday in Rio, and we are so excited to watch them that we thought it would be fun to incorporate our excitement into the blog projects this week. Each day this week our designers have been given a project challenge that is related to the games, and let me tell you…you are in for an amazing week! Chantalle is up today, and her challenge was to create a project inspired by the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Check out what she came up with!

 

Hello We R fans and welcome back to the blog today! As the world focuses on Rio, it’s difficult not be drawn to the exotic nature of such an inspiring city. On my bucket list for sure, I hope I will one day be able to take in the sights and sounds myself!

Australia Zoo_1

Perhaps it’s totally stereotyped, but a lush jungle theme comes to mind when I think of South America. Living in tropical Queensland on the Eastern coast of Australia, we are never far away from a palm tree or two!

A fabulous place to visit, if you are ever our way, is Australia Zoo. We purchased some season passes last year which were wonderful, especially for the kids, as we got to go and enjoy all the zoo has to offer, as often as we liked. This interactive page captures all the fun we had on a visit during the school holidays.

Australia Zoo_2

I’ve really made use of my Fuse Tool on this project and created a flip-style mini album. For the base, I have used the reverse side of a 12×12 sheet of Fusables paper. Because it’s made of plastic, you can easily adhere any fuseable item directly to it.

Australia Zoo_3

I like to wait a good while for my Fuse Tool to heat up. The fuseables are slightly thicker than a plastic sleeve so it’s helpful to have a nice hot tool. Be careful to not rest in one spot for too long when using it though, as it will leave a hole in the material. Slowish and steady is the way!

Australia Zoo_4

For the album, I fused a Keepsake Pocket shut and popped it under a couple of 4×6 waterfall sleeves. On top of that I fused a 4×4 waterfall sleeve and a cute little Instax size sleeve as well. As you can see, this size if perfect for a credit/business card size item. These were all fused directly to my base paper apart from the Keepsake Pocket, which I actually removed so I could adhere some leaves behind it.

Australia Zoo_5

Once I was happy with the sleeves, I went about creating a tropical theme as the zoo is bursting with flora and fauna. I really wanted to build up lots of layers, just like a jungle, so I cut lots of leaf and feather shapes using a selection of colour card from a 12×12 DIY Party cardstock pad. This pad even includes metallics, which is awesome! I set my cut shapes up on either side of the cutting mat. As you can see in the pics, I have split two colours on one cutting mat. This is an awesome time saver!

Australia Zoo_6

For a bit of extra definition when layering, don’t forget to pop some areas up on foam tape. On some of the leaves and feathers, I have also added some machine stitching. One could also bring the cut shapes to life too with a bit of watercolour paint to create light and shade.

Australia Zoo_7

Let’s take a peek inside the album. The 4×4 sleeve contains some pics which the zoo photographer takes. If you want a copy, you take the sample to get printed off for you. I figure these little sample shots will just end up in the bin, so I grab mine if I see them out on display.

Australia Zoo_8

Flip this one up and underneath, I have included a kangaroo food bag, which I have used to scribble a bit about our day.

Australia Zoo_9

Some more photos are revealed underneath that. I have saved on printing by setting a few photos up on one 4×6. By doing this I was able to include 18 photos in only 3 sleeves!

Australia Zoo_10

Australia Zoo_11

To compliment the fresh tones of the cardstock, I’ve added a few little Flower Girl ephemera here and there.

Australia Zoo_12

I like to include a bit of chit chat in my pages and I don’t know why I don’t include the text on my photos more often. Another little time saver!

Australia Zoo_13

Australia Zoo_14

Right at the bottom of the album you can see the Keepsake pocket.

Australia Zoo_15

Australia Zoo_16

Australia Zoo_17

The pocket was perfect to store a copy of the treasure hunt map we completed on the day. Looking back on Erin’s little handwriting one day will be priceless. I adhered the pocket back onto my page after I had placed some foliage behind it. It’s a good idea to use a clear adhesive like glue dots etc so you don’t see you adhesive so much when you remove the items in the pocket to view them.

Australia Zoo_18

A final little touch was using my Crop-a-Dile scallop punch to give a nice bit of detail to my corners. The Fuseable paper is punchable, but it’s best to snip anything that doesn’t cut cleanly, as tearing it off will ruin it. (I’ve run over the paper with my sewing machine, as the white just looked a little plain.)

Australia Zoo_19

Here is another look at the full page.

Thank you so much for joining me today.

Until next time,

Happy crafting!

Travel Shaker Card

Hello everyone! Eva Pizarro here today on the blog showing you a fun travel card made with the lovely Fuseables Card Kit.

Travel Shaker Card by Eva Pizarro_1

The Fuseables Card Kit has everything you need to make 10 awesome cards: sequins, diecuts, sentiments, even envelopes! And the best part is that you don’t need any adhesive because you can use your Fuse Tool to attach all the pieces.

To make this card I used one of the tri fold card bases, an image of a world map that I die cut from another card base and a 4×4 inch photo sleeve. It is very easy to cut through the Fuseables paper, just select the double cut option on your die cutting machine and cut on low speed.

Travel Shaker Card by Eva Pizarro_2

I needed a bigger circle on my card so I used a glass to mark a perfect circle on both sides of the tri fold card.

Travel Shaker Card by Eva Pizarro_3

I held my world map to my card with some washi tape and very slowly began attaching it with my Fuse. I love the marks the Fuse leaves on this Fuseables paper, they look like stitches!

Travel Shaker Card by Eva Pizarro_4

With a needle I added some embroidery floss from Chile to the USA.

Travel Shaker Card by Eva Pizarro_9

I trimmed a bit off my photo sleeve and filled it with some sequins. I closed it and then attached it on the back of the card. You don’t need to attach all the sides of the photo sleeve, just make a diagonal line on the four corners and you will be alright.

Travel Shaker Card by Eva Pizarro_6

I embellished the front of the card with some sentiments and some hearts. I also included the “Bon Voyage” phrase with some tiny alphas from the Wildflower sticker sheet.

Travel Shaker Card by Eva Pizarro_7

To finish the card I folded one of the flaps and used my Fuse Tool to close all the sides. That way the back of my card is pretty and neat. I also ran my Fuse on the front to create a stitched look.

Travel Shaker Card by Eva Pizarro_8

I love how the blue sequins look! And with the Fuse I managed to make this shaker card very easily!

Travel Shaker Card by Eva Pizarro_9

Here you can see the “Bon Voyage” phrase better, the stickers are perfect and the letters shine with that gold foil.

Travel Shaker Card by Eva Pizarro_10

I hope you like this card, I am sure the person receiving it is going to be very happy! What do you like the most: To make or receive cards?
