Lunch Box Notes with the Typecast Typewriter

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here today with some fun lunchbox notes! While my soon-to-be middle schooler assures me that he still loves getting notes from me in his lunchbox, I thought I would add a little bit of fun and silliness, instead of so much mushy-stuff. He has long been a fan of jokes, so I thought making lunchbox notes with jokes would be perfect!

To create the jokes, I grabbed a joke book and used the internet to find the best ones, or at least jokes he has not already told me a thousand times! The Typecast Typewriter was going to be the perfect way to write up these jokes!

Typecast 8.5×11” paper was scrolled into my Typecast. I began typing each joke, leaving space between the start and the punchline. Some jokes I left all together in one grouping.

Once all my jokes were typed up, I used small rectangular dies to cut the jokes out. A shaped punch would work well too.

 

I cut and scored my card stock bases with the Trim & Score Board.

The size of my cards was determined by my 1-2-3Punchboard. Why? Because I knew I wanted to create envelopes. The smallest size envelopes available were for cards measuring 2×3.5” , which was the perfect size for a small lunchbox note!

I created each of the envelopes with the same patterned paper I used to decorate each card, Crate Paper’s Cute Girl 6×6 Paper Pad.

Activity Travel Bag for Kids with the Stitch Happy

Hello and welcome, Chantalle with you today! I’ve been having so much fun with my Stitch Happy Sewing Machine that I thought it would be fun to create a little travel kit for my DD with some leftover calico fabric I had from the beach bag I created recently!

Travel Activity Bag with the Stitch Happy by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

Our family loves to take scenic drives at the weekend, but sometimes all the car time can make my little girl a bit restless. I have popped together a super simple little travel kit for her to keep those “Are we there yets?” at bay…

Travel Activity Bag with the Stitch Happy by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

The bag attaches to the headrest of the front seat so it’s easily reached and contains a few things to keep her (and possible even big bro!) engaged that teensy bit longer!

Travel Activity Bag with the Stitch Happy by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

The bag itself started out as roughly a six inch square piece of fabric. I used my Supreme Ruler to cut the fabric. I love the metal edge! Perfect for running a knife against and ensuring a clean cut.

I then ran the bag through my Stitch Happy with a straight stitch on two sides  (the fold served as the third side) leaving a little bit at the top open, for the hem section where I would insert the rope for the drawstring.

The outside has been embellished very simply with some felt hearts from the Stitch Happy Banner Kit. I hand-stitched some letters on them for a bit of fun. They spell the words ‘PLAY’ when read clockwise. I will admit that the addition of the lettering was after I had created the bag, so I used my hot glue gun to adhere them to the bag. (If I had had the thought of it earlier, I would have machine stitched them on.)

Travel Activity Bag with the Stitch Happy by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

The first item inside the bag is a little notebook, which I re-purposed from an existing book that I had in my stash.

Travel Activity Bag with the Stitch Happy by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

The size was perfect for the bag, so I carefully removed the cover and fashioned a new one from a sheet of Amy Tangerine’s On a Whim, ‘Shady Bunch’ paper. I used my Corner Chomper to round the edges.

Inside, I attached some Amy Tangerine On a Whim Ephemera sporadically onto a few pages.

She can use the notebook to jot down some notes, make a map of our route or play a game with her brother.

Also inside is a little laminated scavenger hunt, which I downloaded from the net. There are heaps of printables available so they can be easily prepped the night before you travel if necessary.

There are also some little ‘Would you rather’ game cards, which I found online as well. These have been laminated and added to a book ring. I used my Crop a Dile to punch its way through the whole stack in one go!

Travel Activity Bag with the Stitch Happy by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

The bag turned out super cute and my little miss loves the fact that she has her own special kit for use in the car or on public transport. The book ring can even be attached to a handbag or stroller!

Travel Activity Bag with the Stitch Happy by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

Fill it with goodies your child loves. (LOL Dolls are a firm favourite in my house at the moment) and maybe even a treat or two or some headphones to keep those ears entertained.

DIY Paper Fans

Hello We R fans, and happy Friday! It’s Aly with you again today sharing an easy and fun summer kids craft that you can make with your DIY Party Board and some paper from your scrapbook stash. I found this project on the Idea Room blog HERE. When I saw these fans, I immediately thought of the DIY Party Board, and knew this awesome tool would make these fans a snap!

DIY Paper Fans by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

This project is easy for kids to make, and requires supplies that you’ve likely already got on hand.

DIY Paper Fan by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Plus, they’re perfect for the warm summer months!

DIY Paper Fans by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Start by placing your 12×12 paper into the DIY Party Board with the corner placed into the alignment guide.

Place your A and C cutting guides at numbers 11 and 7 on the board, respectively.

Cut along each guide with your blade so that you end up with the shape shown in the photo below.

Punch a hole in the ends of 5 wooden craft sticks (or popsicle sticks) with the Crop-A-Dile using the 1/8th inch punch.

Then stack them up and thread a metal brad through the holes, bending the ends of the brad so that it stays in place.

Fan out the popsicle sticks that that they’re evenly spaced with the outside sticks placed near the edges of the paper you just cut. Hot glue the sticks to the back of the paper with the front of the brad facing down.

Once the glue is dry, stack the sticks on top of each other, folding the paper and creasing it as you go.

You can change out the paper for whatever event or occasion you’re celebrating. The kids would love picking out their own patterns and colors of paper.

DIY Paper Fans by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory KeepersI chose papers from the fun summer-themed Oasis collection from our sister brand, Crate Paper. I just love those flamingos!

Summer Reading Log

Hello, We R Memory Keepers fans, Laura here today. School just got out for us and I want to be sure both of my kids keep up with their reading skills all summer long. Having a summer reading log will help us keep track of all of the books we read this summer. We have some house rules about reading, playing outside, chores, and learning activities the kids must complete before they are allowed to use electronics.

DIY Summer Reading Log by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I created a printable log the kids could use each week. It has a space for the date, title of the book, and how many pages were read for each day of the week.

Summer Reading Log by Laura Silva

Get your free printable here: Summer Reading Log

I printed 10 weeks worth (front to back), so five pages total for each of my kids.

To start creating the reading log book, I started with two 8 ½ x 11 inch Cinch book boards. I covered the front and back covers with some fun, summery papers from Amy Tangerine’s On a Whim collection. I adhered the papers using double sided tape. I covered the inside covers with purple and yellow mono cardstock.

To separate each of the kid’s sections, I created tabs using teal and orange mono cardstock and the tab punch board. I labeled them with my children’s names.

Once I had everything together, I assembled the book with the Cinch tool and a small silver Cinch wire.

To make the cover a little more fun, I used some Thickers to spell out “Summer Reading Log” on some of the leftover teal and orange mono cardstock. I rounded the corners with the Corner Chomper. Then, I added stickers from the On a Whim collection.

DIY Summer Reading Log by Laura Silva for We R memory Keepers

I love the way it turned out. I know I am always more motivated to do what I need to do when I have something that looks nice and my kids are, too! This summer reading log will be the perfect way for the kids to keep track of what reading they do this summer.

They’ve got plenty of awesome ideas to keep little ones entertained over the summer, so be sure to check back often! First off is a great project idea from Soraya Maes.

Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here with you today to share a creative activity we made together with my kids: mini party hats for their toys! And we had a lot of fun playing with the DIY Party Board which is now for sure, their favorite tool!

Mini Party Hats by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

For this special Kids Craft week I asked them if there was something they would love to create with me and they answered (without any hesitation!) that they would love to organize a birthday party for their toys! So this is what me made together and they were just amazed by the DIY Party Board. It was so cute!

My son started by cutting the colorful papers he selected with the Trim & Score Board. We needed 6×6 squares.

Interactive Alphabet Book

Hello there We R fans, and welcome to “Inspired by Pinterest” Week here on the blog. Our designers have found some projects on Pinterest that inspire them, and have created their own project based on that inspiration. You’re going to love what they’ve come up with! Check it out.

 

Hello and welcome back to the blog! Chantalle with you today to chat about a way to make learning your ABC’s a bit more fun for kids. I was inspired by a project I saw on Pinterest involving a book bound from paper bags. It was such a sweet way of storing memories but I also loved the interactive element of it and thought I could combine my alphabet punchboard and my Cinch Binding Tool to create something fun and interactive for my little learner!

Interactive Alphabet Book by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

My ‘super fun’ alphabet pad consists of several pockets, bound together. I’ll admit, I did worry it was too fat to bind at one stage! Lol. But my awesome Cinch made light work of the 26 pages plus chipboard covers!

Interactive Alphabet Book by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Let’s learn our ABC’s by sliding out the cards! Let’s see what word starts with the letter ‘A’… yep, you guessed it, ‘Apple’!

Interactive Alphabet Book by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I found this pack of flashcards at my local Target store. The cards were a great size and have been printed onto a sturdy cardstock with a gloss finish, so I knew they would be hard wearing for what I had in mind. (Plus, this works out cheaper than if I were to print the sheets out on my inkjet printer at home and then laminate them!)

To make my cards slide in and out of custom pockets, I had to cut them down a bit, to be able to secure them inside, without falling out when pulled. To do this, I popped each of them onto my Trim & Score Board and measured about a quarter inch down from the top and up from the bottom. I left another quarter inch on the left hand side where I would be inserting them into the sleeves later on. I then cut along the top and bottom guide marks I had made, leaving the left hand side as is.

Trim and Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

For my sleeves, I created 26 pockets using coordinating shades of Bazzill Cardstock (see materials list for colours used) I left a quarter inch extra at the bottom of the pocket and half an inch at the top to accommodate for binding.

Interactive Alphabet Book by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I rounded the corners of my flashcards using my Crop a Dile Corner Chomper and then inserted them into their sleeves. In order for them to stay in place during use, I had to sew them inside the sleeves – just a little bit above and below the card as shown in the picture below. The quarter inch or so of stitching will allow the cut out area to slide out but hold the area that I left at the original height of the card, inside the sleeve.

Interactive Alphabet Book by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Once all my sleeves were sewn, it was time to start putting the pad together. For kids, a sturdy cover is a must. I’ve used some 8×8 Cinch Designer Book Board which I cut down to size and then covered with some gorgeously fun Amy Tangerine ‘On a Whim’ papers. The image below shows just how easy it is to create a bound item using The Cinch. Simply pull out the corresponding peg to choose how many holes to punch. Note: In this picture you will see I punched my holes before I covered my board. I would recommend covering your chipboard before you punch, for a neater finish.

Interactive Alphabet Book by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Now that my cover was sorted, it was time to move on to embellishing my sleeves. I wanted corresponding letters to match my flashcards. Enter my Alphabet Punch Board! This clever punch board allowed me to create matching lettering for each letter of the alphabet. The ‘m’ and ‘w’ turned out to be a bit too wide for the size of my sleeves, so I used the adorable (seriously, you have to have one they are SO cute!!) Mini Alphabet Punch Board to whip up two of each letter and mount them underneath each other.

Alphabet Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

The final piece that I needed on each were the words ‘is for…’ so I popped some grid paper from my Typecast 8.5 x 11” pad into my Typecast typewriter and started typing up my text. I chose to use the grid paper so they would all look uniform.

We R Memory Keepers Typecast Typewriter

Here are all the letters, bound in to the pad. ‘A’ through to ‘H’…

Interactive Alphabet Book by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

… and ‘I’ to ‘Z’.

Interactive Alphabet Book by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

For an extra fun element, each of the cards has a reusable area to practice lettering on! This is especially handy for my little bug, who sometimes writes her letters back to front. Simply lay the pad flat, grab a whiteboard marker and you’re all set!

High Five DIY Game

Hello again We R fans! I’m so glad you could join me today, as I share a boredom-busting idea the whole family can enjoy. My kiddos loved playing my little ‘Adventure Time’ game, which I created for them during the recent school holidays using the awesome High Five collection.

adventure-time_1

The gameplay is based on an existing game my daughter already has, but it’s so girly, I thought a more gender neutral approach would entice my son to join in the fun too. Let’s see how it all came together…

adventure-time_2

The base is a simple 12×12 sheet of Cinch chipboard. I have run some light blue tape along the edges and then mounted a sheet of High Five ‘Brave’ over the top. I covered the underside of my board with some plain black cardstock to give it a finished look.

For my title, I used the word ‘adventure’ from a pack of Wildflower Gold Foil Stickers. I will admit that I have been admiring these stickers for quite some time, hoarding them for a special project. The size and wording of this sticker however, was too perfect not to use this time though! I’ve paired it wish some High Five chipboard alphas. I really like the distressed look of these. TIP: For longevity, it’s always a good idea to apply extra adhesive to chipboard stickers to ensure they don’t fall off over time.

adventure-time_3

The concept of the game is very simple: spin the spinner then move ahead the number of circles as shown on the spinner. If you land on a silver circle, you stay put. If you land on a whale, you choose a disc and potentially move forward. Land on a cheeky raccoon and you move backwards.

adventure-time_4

Here’s a closer look at my spinner…

I put it together as shown below. I cut a circle out of a sheet of Cinch Chipboard then covered it with pattern paper and embellished it with some stamping, stickers and mist, before finally roughing it up a bit with some sandpaper.

adventure-time_5

The discs (which partially determine your fate in the game) coordinate with the player’s counters.

adventure-time_6

These started off as some pre-cut chipboard shapes I had in my stash, which I have covered with some patterned paper from my High Five 6×6 pad. (Nine counters fit on one sheet of paper.) I then cut these out carefully by hand. (If I had a larger circle punch it would’ve saved a bit of time.)

adventure-time_7

adventure-time_8

The counters are High Five Plastic Buttons which, have had their double sided tape removed. I’ve chosen some phrases that coordinate with phrases found on a sheet of aptly named High Five ‘Flair’ so I could create the tokens. During game play, if you pick up a token that matches your counter, you move forward two places. The Flair patterned paper was perfect as it has a few repeats in the design, which allowed me to create more than one token with the same phrase on it.

adventure-time_9

Some DIY Party Silver Foil Stickers mark out the route to adventure!

adventure-time_10

You might come across this cheeky fellow…

adventure-time_11

… or have to cross the treacherous mountain pass.

adventure-time_12

However you choose to play, one thing’s for sure and that is that you will have fun! A bit of imagination and a few dollars and you’ve got yourself a great activity to do with the kids or even a unique gift for someone.

adventure-time_13

Happy playtime!

Classroom Decor Ideas

Hello friends! Eva Pizarro here today sharing some quick and easy projects to decorate your classroom or your little one’s area.

Classroom Decor by Eva Pizarro 1

My little one loves to read, he can stay in his room staring at his books for half an hour! A few months ago I build him some shelves for his books and now that I have added some color he loves his area even more.

To make the banner I used the lovely wood pattern paper from the Honey I’m Home collection.  I cut four 4×6 inch rectangles and used my Banner Punch Board to make flags. I did the same with some white cardstock and layered it behind.

Classroom Decor by Eva Pizarro 2

To make the letters I used my Alphabet Punch Board  and the 3×5 paper pad.  I chose basic colors: red, yellow, green and blue.

To make the letters follow the instructions on the booklet or download the free App!

Put together your banner by attaching your letters with some 3d dots.

Hang your banner with some twine. For some extra pops of color use your Garland Punch and rainbow colored cardtosck to make a quick festoon. I cut 2 shapes of each color to make the garland longer.

I also created this other project using basically the same colors and tools. It is a birthday chart and you can use it for your classroom (if you are a teacher) or your church or maybe for your home if you have a big family!
