Wire Wedding Cake Topper

Hello We R friends, and happy Friday! It’s either that time of year or there must be something in the water here, because we have gotten no less than five wedding invitations in the past month! Exciting, right? Needless to say, I’ve had weddings on the brain. Recently I saw some adorable wire wedding cake toppers, so I thought I’d try my hand at making my own with my Happy Jig to see what I could come up with.

I love how this turned out! I think a wire wedding cake topper looks pretty cool, don’t you?

So, obviously this design is my own creation–it’s not in the Happy Jig instruction manual or on our @werhappyjig Instagram feed, so I’ll show you how I made it. The cake I placed it in is about 8 inches in diameter and the topper is about 10 inches long. I’m not exactly sure how much wire I used, but I started out with 6 yards of THIS copper (or I like to call it rose gold) wire and ended up with more than half of it left.

Because of the length of this wire cake topper I did it in three parts, moving each part off the jig and making the next section. I started with the word “Mr” and the post for sticking the topper in the cake. Here’s a picture of that section of the design. Since I wasn’t sure how much wire I would need when I started, I didn’t cut any of the 6 yard roll until I was finished.

I’ve found it pretty easy to use the design templates found in the instruction booklet and on the Instagram feed to piece together custom words. I’ve also discovered that I can enlarge the letters by just raising the tops of them on the grid of the jig. That’s basically how I created the word “Mr.” Then I extended the leftover wire down about 8 inches and wrapped it back up on itself to create the post.

Next, I used the instruction booklet that comes with the tool to create the ampersand sign. That part was pretty easy!

Once I comleted the ampersand, I finished up my topper with the word “Mrs” and a little heart I borrowed from the word “love” on our @werhappyjig Instagram feed.

Here are a couple of tips I picked up while creating this project:

  1. Have a pair of needle nose pliers on hand in case you need to undo your design. It will help to straighten your wire so it looks more neat and tidy.
  2. Plan ahead or make your own template beforehand (grab a blank one on our Instagram feed). The more you bend and straighten the wire, the harder it can be to keep your creation looking neat.
  3. Once you’ve finished creating your design, lay it down on a hard smooth surface and press it flat to straighten everything out.
  4. Once you’ve set the pegs on the jig, use some yarn or twine to test out your design before winding the wire around.
  5. Don’t be afraid to visit Pinterest or Instagram for ideas–wire design is pretty popular right now so you’re sure to find some inspiration

Letterpress Wedding Card

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here and it is wedding season. There is something about making a wedding card that makes you want to create something full of elegance and texture. Using a couple tools from We R Memory Keepers, I was able to easily make a gorgeous card for someone’s special day.

Letterpress Wedding Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Nothing says elegance to me like letterpress. The Evolution creates a deep and beautiful impession, simply.

Letterpress Wedding Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To the floral letterpress plate, I added silver ink. This ink is a pigment formula ink, meaning it will stay wetter longer, which is what is needed for the best results when creating this look. I placed my paper over the top of the inked plate, set that inside the letterpress platform, and passed it through the Evolution. (Use the Letterpress setting on the side of the machine. Its one easy turn of the knob for the correct pressure.)

Letterpress Wedding Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

With a few turns of the handle, I was able to make this cardstock truly fabulous. Look at the embossing and how the silver shimmers inside of it.

To reinforce the theme of the day, I used the Happy Jig to create the word love from silver wire. All the pegs and a pair of wire cutters are included in the Happy Jig and I love that they all store inside the tool.

We R Memory Keepers Happy Jig

The instructions for creating the word love are in the book enclosed with the Happy Jig. (If you are looking for more patterns, be sure and check out the We R Happy Jig Instagram account for more ideas and designs.)

To adhere the wire word to my card, I applied a strong glue to the back of the wire.

Wedding Table Decor

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva on the blog today sharing with you a wedding table decoration made with the Happy Jig  and that can be used for any party.

Wedding Table Decor by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

For this assignment I decided to make place holders and a table number sign, I used the lovely papers from the Journaling stack from DCWV, the colors and prints are perfect for a wedding!

To make the place holder choose your favorite image from the Happy Jig catalog (or one of the many designs you can find on their Instagram account @werhappyjig) leave 5 or 6 extra inches in the beginning and create your form.

Cut the wire and use the extra wire to make a circular base.

We R Memory Keepers Happy Jig

Use your Mini Envelope Punch Board to make 2 x 2 ¾ inch envelopes and place them on your wire design.

Write the name of the receiver on the back of the envelope.

Inside the envelope you can include a thank you note, a picture or a small gift!

To create the table number sign use the Happy Jig to create the word “table”. Here are the Happy Jig coordinates in case you want to make one:

Start: I14
Big Pegs: O4
Medium Pegs:I3, J10, M11, M24, O10, P17, P22, P26
Small Pegs: G7, H16, H21, N18, P13, Q9

We R Memory Keepers Happy Jig

Use your Trim and Score Board to make the sign. Mine was 5 ¾ inches wide and 8 ¼ inches tall. I wanted my Table word to stand up on the sign so I attached it by making two holes with my Sticky Piercer.

We R Memory Keepers Trim and Score Board

To make the numbers I used the Journaling Stack by DCWV and my Alphabet Punch Board. I love the foil details on these papers!

And here’s how my sign turned out. I really like the paper and wire combo.

Graduation Party Favor Idea

Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here with you today to share a new tutorial for a graduation party favor using some of my favorite tools!

Graduation Party Favor by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

To make this little cute graduation box, I used the wonderful 1-2-3 Punch Board that I LOVE ! The possibilities are endless with this board, above all when it comes to creating party favors! As this box measures 3 ¼ inches so the paper had to measure 10 inches (according to the instructions on the board).

I also used the Clear Cut Punch to create a little window so we can see the marshmallows through it. Love this frame shape and this punch is very easy to place thanks to the magnetic system! The window is made out of a little waterfall photo sleeve that I glued with the USB Power Tool Mini Glue Gun.

Now that the box is finished, I played with my Happy Jig and some rose gold wire to make the word “yay”. I followed the instructions in the book to shape the “y” and the “a” like in the “happy” word.

Now it’s the fun part to fill the box with yummy marshmallows!

We now have to make the hat and tassle part to finish the graduation favor! The steps are very easy and the result is awesome! I cut a 4 ¼ inches square paper with my Trim & Score Board and another one in a light white cardboard with my Supreme Ruler and Precision Knife. I glued them together.

Create a Scrapbook Page with a Circle Grid Design

Hello everyone and Happy National Scrapbook week!  It’s Eva here today sharing a scrapbook layout made with some of my favorite We R tools.

Scrapbook Page with a Circle Grid Design by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

Some of my favorite scrapbook techniques are hand sewing and using tiny strips of paper to create backgrounds, so I thought I would incorporate the two of them on this scrapbook layout.

I started my layout with a grid design, they are very versatile and allow you to incorporate many pictures on your page. I decided to create a grid with circles so I used my Clear Cut Punch to cut out 16 circles and then I arranged them with my Laser Square. I love this tool! (Did you know you can also use it to align your wall decor?)

Laser Square by We R Memory Keepers

For my layout I had 3 types of circles: one group with pictures, another one with string art and the last group with tiny strips of paper. I wanted this last group to be on a different level so I traced my circles on paper and punched some of the circles out.

Circle Clear Cut Punch by We R Memory Keepers

To create the string art circles I traced a simple design with a pencil and used my Sticky Piercer to make holes.

Supreme Ruler by We R Memory Keepers

Craft Knife by We R Memory Keepers

I used thread from my Stitch Happy to create the string art. Since the string art has large “stitches” it didn’t took me too long to create them. I love the result! Especially the ones mixing gold and colored threads.

Stitch Happy Thread by We R Memory Keepers

To make the circles with tiny strips of paper, start by cutting your strips. I used my Glass Mat, my Supreme Ruler and my Craft Knife. These tools work great together! The Supreme Ruler doesn’t move and the craft knife cuts like butter over the Glass Mat. The papers used for these circles are all from Pick Me Up collection by Pink Paislee.

Supreme Ruler by We R Memory Keepers

Create your designs by putting your strips one next to the other or maybe creating a weaving pattern. You don’t need to glue the entire strip! Just place some liquid glue around your circle and use your Sticky Piercer to move your tiny strips easily.

Hand Tools by We R Memory Keepers

Place this circles beneath your layout with 3d dots and use white thread and your Sticky Piercer to create a hand sewn border around all your circles.

Scrapbook Page with a Circle Grid Design by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

To create my title I used my Happy Jig and made the word “awesome“ using gold wire. You can find this design on the Happy Jig dedicated Instagram account (@werhappyjig)

Happy Jig by We R Memory Keepers

To attach your wire word use some thread and tie the word on the edges.

Scrapbook Page with a Circle Grid Design by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

Use some embellishments to finish your layout. I used chipboards and stickers from the lovely Pick Me Up collection by Pink Paislee.

Scrapbook Page with a Circle Grid Design by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I love the look of string art on my layouts, it is so easy and gives a great graphic effect!

The weaving pattern looks great and I love that I could easily cut tiny strips of paper with my Craft Knife! This is a great project to use all those small paper scraps you have lying around.

Are you making something special next Saturday during National Scrapbook Day? Why don’t you try some of these techniques? I would love to see what you create!

Baby Shower Decor

Happy Friday We R fans! Aly Dosdall here again to share some baby themed decor that I made with a few of my favorite new tools. This simple banner and cake topper set would be perfect for a baby birthday party, a baby shower, or any other baby themed event. You could also change out the words to fit any celebration or event you’re hosting. Check out what I made with my Happy Jig, Tag Punch Board, and a few other handy tools!

Baby Shower Decor by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Happy Jig and the Tag Punch Board

The pretty pastel papers I used for the tag banner are from the new DCWV Inc Okey Dokey and Journaling Stacks which you can find at JoAnn stores.

Baby Shower Decor by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Happy Jig, the Square Punch Board, the Staple Board and the Tag Punch Board

Let’s start with making the tag banner! First I made my letters with the Happy Jig tool and the gold wire that comes with the kit. You can find instructions for making all the capital letters of the alphabet (plus dozens of other cool designs) on our dedicated Instagram feed here: @werhappyjig.

After I made the letters, I measured their size to determine how large to cut my DIY tags. I used my Square Punch Board to punch out five 2 3/4 x 4 inch rectangles. If you haven’t gotten a Square Punch Board I highly recommend it. I use it all the time for punching out bulk rectangles and squares for all kinds of paper craft projects!

Then I created the tags with my Tag Punch Board, layering a 7/8 inch paper over them that I cut off of the top of a same size tag made with some coordinating paper.

Baby Shower Decor by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Happy Jig and the Tag Punch Board

Once I finished making all my letters and tags, I stapled them together with small staples using the Staple Board. I finished off my banner by adding some pink Stitch Happy Twine to the tops of the tags, and then taping them to a length of twine for hanging.

After finishing the banner, I made the word “baby” with my Happy Jig for a cake topper. I copied the letters from other words on the Instagram feed and in the included instruction booklet to get “baby”. You can totally create your own words by using the letters from other word designs and linking them together. It’s fun to play around and experiment with making your own words.

Baby Shower Decor by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Happy Jig

Here’s a close up shot of which pegs you’ll need to make the word “baby” and where you need to place them.

We R Memory Keepers Happy Jig: Baby

I left a few extra inches on both ends of the word so I could attach it to my bamboo skewers before adding it to the cake. I twisted the excess wire around the skewers, but you could tie yours with twine, use a bit of hot glue, or some mini glue dots.

Baby Shower Decor by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Happy Jig

I love how the wire designs add some unique texture and a fun flare to my baby shower decor. I can tell I’m going to get a ton of use out of my Happy Jig!

Baby Mini Book with the Happy Jig

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva here today sharing with you a baby mini album embellished with the new Happy Jig

Baby Mini Book with the Happy Jig by Eva PIzarro for We R Memory Keepers

I love this new tool! It is so innovative and something you haven’t since in the industry so far! Plus, it is very easy to use and you can make shapes to embellish mini albums, layouts, cards or any craft project.

To make the mini album, start by cutting 2 paper strips of 4 ¼ inch height. I used my Mini Score Board to score my paper every 3 ¼ inch.

Mini Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

I also wanted to include a confetti shaker on my mini album so I filled a small photo sleeve with stars and sequins and I closed it with my Fuse Ruler and the new USB Heat Tool with the Fuse tip.
USB Power Heat Tool with Fuse Tip by We R Memory Keepers

To create the shaker I used my Clear Cut Punch to cut two hearts on the edges of the strips, one on the left and one on the right.

Clear Cut Heart Punch by We R Memory Keepers

I glue the two ends together with double sided tape and put the confetti shaker inside.

Clear Cut Punch Shaker Pocket by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I used my Sticky Piercer to make holes all over my heart and the paper’s edge, the key is to make the same amount of hearts on one shape and on the other one!

Using your twine from the Happy Jig join the outer and the inner holes together.

Crafter's Essentials Hand Tools by We R Memory Keepers

Now for the Happy Jig embellishments. This tools comes with a manual with lots of shapes and you can also see other designs on the We R Happy Jig dedicated Instagram account (@werhappyjig). But I assure you it is very easy to make your own shapes! I created this wire frame in no time!

Happy Jig by We R Memory Keepers

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

Start: D21

Small Pegs: E14, C14, B13, C16, C28, C30, B31, E30, Q30, S 30, T31, S28, S16, S14, T13, Q14.

Happy Jig Wire Frame by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

To make my journaling lines I used my Magnetic Mat! It is perfect because the ruler holds the project in place and you have perfect lines all the time!

 

Baby Mini Book with the Happy Jig by Eva PIzarro for We R Memory Keepers

I also did a “boy” shape for my title. The dimension it adds is amazing! To hold your shape in place you can use a strong liquid adhesive or a few stitches.

Here are the “boy” coordinates:

Start: L9

Small Pegs: K11. N12. N16, K21. J24, P25

Medium Pegs: G12, M14, M23

Big Pegs: M18, Q22

You can also use your wires to contour a paper shape or to embellish free hand like I did here on the sea waves.

See how cute that little frame looks? It is perfect for a 2 inch photo. Did you notice all the 1 inch squares on the next page? I used my Square Punch Board and did it in no time!

Baby Mini Book with the Happy Jig by Eva PIzarro for We R Memory Keepers

I also used my Happy Jig to make a letter “L” for Lorenzo, you can find the instructions for all the letters on the Happy Jig Instagram feed. The letters are great to create personalized gift tags!

And here you can see my shaker pocket. The twine thread gives it a great look and poking the holes with the Sticky Piercer was a breeze!

I love the dimension the wire words add to any project, the y are simple and fun and you have tons of colors to choose from.

How would you use your Happy Jig? What words or shapes would you like to see? I am definitely going to work on some Spanish or Italian words for my projects!

Birthday Treat Bags

Laura here today to kick off Birthday week! I am excited to share with you how to create these adorable birthday treat bags. They can be used as favors or to place a small gift inside for someone special.

Birthday Treat Bags by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I started by using the Goodie Bag Guide and the DCWV Celebration cardstock stack. This paper stack has all the papers you need to create any kind of birthday party favor, card, decoration, or scrapbook layout. I wanted a bag that was 3.5” wide by 4.5” tall, so I trimmed my paper to eight inches wide.

Then, I used parts A, C, and D of the Goodie Bag guide to create my bags.

 

Birthday Treat Bags by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

These papers are cute enough to use by themselves, but I wanted to dress up them up a little bit. I used my banner punch board to create a little mini banner piece for each bag. I trimmed each strip of coordinating paper using my paper trimmer. Then, I used the punch board to create a v-shape in the bottom. Lastly, I trimmed the banner piece to fit my treat bag.

We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch Board

I attached the mini banner and a Pebbles Birthday Wishes ephemera to each of the bags using sticky thumb adhesive.

Birthday Treat Bags by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Then, I used the Happy Jig to create some cute little embellishments to attach to the bag. I created the word “Happy” using the instructions in the book and some of the baker’s twine wire.

We R Memory Keepers Happy Jig

With the baker’s twine wire you need to use a little glue or tape at the ends to keep the twine from fraying and coming off the wire. I simply used a little dab of hot glue on each end.

We R Memory Keepers Happy Jig

I created the word happy and a heart shape out of twine. I used the blue color wire to create an adorable ice cream cone. It matches perfectly with the ice cream paper. The instructions can be found on the Happy Jig Instagram page.

These little bags are the perfect favors to give your guests for a special birthday bash! And they would be perfect for filling with a few small treats for a cute birthday gift.
