DIY Framed Home Decor

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a lovely photo frame perfect for this time of year! Believe it or not, but I made this project with a very small set of We R Memory Keepers tools. Which goes to show you just how powerful and helpful We R tools can be!

I have always loved the phrase; the best is yet to come. With all the alphabet stamps I seem to have accumulated over the years, I thought, why not mix and match the letters and make my own custom panel?

See, I knew I could make it all the stamped letters line up perfectly with the We R Memory Keepers Mini Precision Press. Love the confidence you can have going in to a project with great tools!

To highlight the words “best” and “come,” I used block letter stamps. To line the spacing between the letters up precisely, I placed my letter stamps down on my panel of patterned paper and then picked the stamps up all at once by placing the We R Memory Keepers Mini Precision Press plate over the top. Each and every time I stamp the word now, everything will stay exactly where I want it! (Might be a good time to consider making a bunch of cards with this phrase, as long as I have the words lined up…)

After placing my phrase inside a frame with a few layers of beautiful patterned papers, I knew the project needed some dimension. Looking around my desk, I noticed a simple set of circle dies sitting next to my We R Memory Keepers Mini Evolution. Let me share my fun party trick with you and show you how to create 3D flowers and leaves from a simple circle!

After die cutting my circle, I cut into the circle in a spiral towards the center. You can round off the harsh corner with your scissors to make a smoother flower.

Begin rolling the paper from the outside towards the center. I find that to get a tighter roll, using the end of one of my stylus tools assists greatly.

Once the paper is rolled, allow the edges to be free to open into a flower shape. Apply a glue to the bottom of the flower and hold in place for a minute or two until the glue sets.

Second part of my trick? Use the same circle die to create leaves!

Cut a piece of patterned paper with the circle die. Mix up the sizes for fun variety in the leaves. Then place the die over half of the circle and pass it through your We R Memory Keepers Mini Evolution again.

Also, use a bit of tape to hold the die in place. Otherwise it may slip during cutting and turn out not the way you expected.

Voila! A leaf! Go ahead and bend the leaf in the center to add dimension. Or, add ink along the edges.

Foil Quill Spring Card

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here and I know that you are as happy as I am that spring has finally sprung! Time for sunshine, green grass, and flowers! Nothing says spring to me more than bouquets of flowers! Today I have a spring water-colored card made with the We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill. So easy to make, so fun to make, so wonderful to send to someone special!

Foil Quill Spring Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

I have a few current crafting obsessions, one, the We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill, because I love the look of gold, and two, water color.

Foil Quill Spring Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

I picked up the new watercolor kit from Amy Tangerine and was looking for a project to use it on. And then I thought, why don’t I make an image with the Foil Quill on water color paper and color it in?! It worked perfectly!

Foil Quill Spring Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Using a lovely floral image from Paige Evans digital drive, I created a card front. I began by creating a rectangle in the software of my digital die cutting machine, to the size of my card front. Then I laid out the images within that space. With the software, you can change the size of the design images easily, making them useable on a million different projects. The letters come separately, so I created a line for spacing and placed all my letters.

Design tip: Once you have the letters of your word lined up, select them all in the software, go to object, then group. Your word will now be joined. Making it easier to resize the word to fit your project.

Before sending the design to my digital die cutting machine to be foiled, I removed my rectangle and lines, so they would not be foiled with the rest of the design.

Foil Quill Spring Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

The water color paper I used was quite thick. I found that if I slowed the pen down to about half speed, the impression was much more solid. Also, note that watercolor paper often has two sides. One side is much more textured, the other is smoother. The smoother side will give you the best results.

Once the image was completed, I simply water-colored in the florals and the words.

Foil Quill Photo Frame

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here to share a project with the absolutely incredible new We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill. Once again, We R Memory Keepers has hit it out of the park with this innovative tool! The Foil Quill turns your digital die cutting machine into a foiling machine. Yes! The beautiful look of a foil finish in minutes! It gets better. The Foil Quill is compatible with the leading digital die cutting machines on the market!

Foil Quill Photo Frame by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Wedding photos are some of our most-cherished pictures and they need to be showcased. I created this photo frame with black cardstock and the Foil Quill, along with Foil Quill Gold Foil. Simple products that have been transformed into something elegant and stunning. While I created this frame with our wedding photos, I will be making this project as a wedding gift for couples in the future.

Foil Quill Photo Frame by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To begin with, I used an SVG file from the Foil Quill Kelly Creates digital drive. There are several different thumb drives available for purchase from your favorite American Crafts designers. The drives are loaded with beautiful images, words, letters, and more! I chose this beautiful floral image and put the image into my digital die cutting machine’s software. After resizing the image and positioning it where I wanted it to be foiled on my cardstock, the design is ready to be sent to the machine.

Foil Quill Photo Frame by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To prepare my paper for foiling, I placed my cardstock on the standard mat for my digital die cutting machine. Then I put the foil over the cardstock, only in the places where I know the design will be foiled. The foil needs to be held in place. The Foil Quill comes with a roll of washi tape to help with that. I would recommend using the tape liberally, especially with more intricate designs such as this. The foil also needs to be secured with as few wrinkles as possible, again, the washi tape helps with that.

Foil Quill Photo Frame by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

The key to all this gorgeousness is the Foil Quill pen. Using your digital die cutting machine’s pen option, the Foil Quill becomes the magical tool you see creating gorgeous projects. The kit comes with 3 different sized pens. The medium nib (teal) will be the one you will use the most often. Within the kit are several adaptors, when added to the pens, adjusts to your specific digital die cutting machine’s dimensions. Amazing, right?

While you are preparing your image and paper, be sure to plug your Foil Quill pen tool into a USB port. The Foil Quill pens need to heat up before sketching on your cardstock. I found that 5-10 minutes of warm up time was adequate.

Once the Foil Quill is heated, the fun could start! I sent my file and watched the magic begin. With in a few minutes, I had a stunning foiled design on my cardstock. Look at the shine!

Foil Quill Photo Frame by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

I also foiled a frame design from Paige Evans and cut it out. Inside that frame, I added our wedding photo. Twenty years ago, wow we were young. I cannot wait to put this on a wall in our house!

What wedding photo do you need to take out of an album and frame beautifully with the Foil Quill?

Handmade Card with the Ribbon Stitching Tool

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a card that is loaded with texture! Adding texture to any card or layout adds extra oomph to your project. It literally makes you want to reach out and touch it! Using the We R Memory Keepers Ribbon Stitch Tool, I was able to add a really cool ribbon embellishment to my card. Check it out!

Handmade Card with the RIbbon Stitching Tool by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

See how the ribbon is woven into the paper? The Ribbon Stitch Tool helps you create that look simply.

Handmade Card with the RIbbon Stitching Tool by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

The Ribbon Stitch Tool has a top and bottom that holds together with a magnet. To begin, sandwich your paper between the two parts. It is very easy to adjust your paper and get the guidelines straight. When the placement is as you desire, push the tool down into the paper, using the guides. You will have to turn the tool, as the curve on the punch is curved in one direction.

We R Memory Keepers Ribbon Stitching Tool

This is what the paper looks like when it has been punched. You can continue your pattern down your paper, or simply stop here for a border.

We R Memory Keepers Ribbon Stitching Tool

The Ribbon Stitch Tool comes with small, plastic, threaders. These pieces make it much easier to weave your ribbon into your paper. Pull off the adhesive backing and place the plastic on each side of the end of your ribbon.

Handmade Card with the RIbbon Stitching Tool by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

After weaving the ribbon through my patterned paper, I trimmed the ends close to the edge with a notch. It was a cute finish for this card. It would also be easy to adhere the ribbon ends on the backside of the paper.

I added a Pebbles sticker and a few leaves I made from patterned paper to the ribbon embellishment. It really makes the words pop from the card.

What kind of weaving pattern would you create?

Precision Press Advanced Valentine’s Day Card

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a card-saving tip for you with the We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Advanced! I will be the first to admit that I have issues lining stamps and dies up, often ruining my die-cut piece, or even my whole card. Not good! Keep reading to find out how to never ruin a card again!

Valentine's Day Card with the We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford

I die cut a heart image from Pebbles patterned paper and knew that I wanted to stamp the “love you” sentiment from Vicki Boutin in the center. To make sure everything lined up perfectly, I placed the heart on my Precision Press Advanced base, securing it with the magnets included with the tool. Then I lined up the stamp image exactly where I wanted it on the heart. (Make sure to do this with the stamping portion of the image face down. So you can read the words.)

We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Advanced

Place the clear plate over the top and push down. This will pick up the image and affix it to the platform. Now, when you go back after your image has been inked, the pegs on the base will assist you with perfect placement. Every.single.time!

The best part about this perfect alignment also helps fix inking mistakes! I did not get enough ink on a part of my image, but no worries, because I added the ink and re-stamped! And you cannot tell! Whew!

I added a few more hearts to my Valentine’s Day card. They needed a little more detail, and I immediately thought of the Stitch Happy Pen! How cute is that stitching detail on the middle of the hearts?

New Year’s Eve Party Favor with the Emoji Punch Board

Hello We R fans! Kimberly here today with a sweet (literally) party favor for your upcoming New Year’s Eve celebrations. It’s a busy time of year during the holidays, but when we host a gathering, we still want to have those handmade, extra-special touches. This project is going to check all those boxes for you! Easy, thoughtful, and fun! The We R Memory Keepers Emoji Punch Board is going to bring out the smiles in everyone!

New Years Eve Party Favors with the Emoji Punch Board by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

The time-honored tradition of kissing your love at midnight can stay alive and well (and cootie free) with these adorable kisses, with a kissy face.

New Years Eve Party Favors with the Emoji Punch Board by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Using the Emoji Punch Board and the pre-cut paper pad, I made these kissy faces quickly! The faces are almost the exact same size as the candy, so they fit perfectly on the bottom with a small amount of adhesive.

New Years Eve Party Favors with the Emoji Punch Board by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Beginning with the heart eyes, I followed the instructions on the punch board. To create the heart eyes, I placed my paper on the side labeled “eyes” on the punch board. I flipped my paper over and punched the second eye. I followed that with the mouth, and then the final punch of the circle shape. These are so cute, I may need to make more for Valentine’s Day!

New Years Eve Party Favors with the Emoji Punch Board by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To help explain to the guests what the treat is, I created a card of sorts. Using the Word Punch Board, I created paper strips saying “kiss me at midnight.” Behind the letters, I layered glitter cardstock to bring some shine to the project. I also added a couple of glitter kissy faces to the card as well. Fast and fun and sure to be memorable as well!

Handmade Gift Idea: Holiday Candles

Hello We R Fans! Not only are the holidays my favorite time of year, but this is also my favorite crafting time of year! Its time to make thoughtful, handmade gifts for those special people in our lives. One of my favorite tools from We R Memory Keepers this year was the Wick Candle Maker.

Gift Handmade Candles as gifts for the holidays with the Wick Candles Maker! Project and photo by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers.

Best part is, while making unique and custom candles is easy with the Wick, everyone loves receiving a candle! There is something warm and inviting about a candle. I cannot wait to give these candles as gifts this season!

Recently, We R Memory Keepers released new silicone molds to allow you to make shaped candles. I could not love the design of these geometric shapes any more if I tried!

Gift Handmade Candles as gifts for the holidays with the Wick Candles Maker! Project and photo by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers.

These three new molds are easy to use and very cleverly designed. The large plastic mold that comes with the Wick Candle Maker, helps hold these flexible pieces in place while creating the candle. The other thing I really liked about these silicone molds was the instructions that came with them. It explains how much more wax to melt to completely fill the mold. I was nervous to fill them to the top at first, but after the first candle turned out so beautifully, I was thrilled!

Gift Handmade Candles as gifts for the holidays with the Wick Candles Maker! Project and photo by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers.

Each of these candles has a unique color, which was the look I wanted. I know that I will be giving these candles to my sister, and this color palette is perfect for her! The Wick Candle Maker comes with colored wax flakes and a color mixing chart, so the sky is the limit!

Gift Handmade Candles as gifts for the holidays with the Wick Candles Maker! Project and photo by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers.

To make the candles, I put the wax into the top of the Wick and then add the color flakes. Once that is all melted, I stir the color in carefully with a wood skewer. As I stir, I make sure and scrape along the sides and bottom of the basin. If you mix and do not like the color, simply add more color flakes.

Another way to customize these candles, and making them truly special for the recipient, is by adding scent. We R Memory Keepers has four different scent kits for sale. You can also add any essential oils you have as well. Add the scent in the beginning as you start to melt the wax.

Gift Handmade Candles as gifts for the holidays with the Wick Candles Maker! Project and photo by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers.

Once the mold is assembled with the wick and stopper, place it inside the large plastic mold. When the wax has melted and the color is what you desire, open the spigot at the bottom and fill the mold. After the wax has set (wait until it is not warm anymore) the candles can easily be removed from the molds. It was really easy to remove. I peeled the candles out by pulling at the sides and basically turning the molds inside out.

To make these gifts even more special, I used the 123 Punch Board and the DCWV White Christmas stack to create boxes for each of the candles. To determine the box size, I measured the candles.

Shaped Christmas Card Set

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with fun, festive, and handmade cards for the holidays! Everyone loves to make (and get) a handmade card in the mail, but during the holidays, our time is at a premium. Once again, We R Memory Keepers is bringing us a tool that saves time and makes us look good! The Circle Spin & Trim is a tool that makes creating circles of just about any size a snap! Smooth and easy to use, check out how I used it on these ornament cards.

Shaped Christmas Card Set featuring the Circle Spinby Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Making these cards took so little time. And how cute are they? Not your everyday Christmas card, that is for sure!

Shaped Christmas Card Set featuring the Circle Spin & Trim by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

The blades for the Circle Spin & Trim sit in the top of the tool. Love the on-board storage and the fact that there are two blades! To cut, one blade easily twists into the guides on the center of the tool. You can choose from so many different sizes!

After the blade is inserted, place your paper inside the Circle Spin & Trim. Firmly close the lid. See the piece that looks like a “Sorry” game board piece? It’s the handle. Simply turn the handle and it will cut your circle.

Shaped Christmas Card Set featuring the Circle Spin & Trim by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

I cut out circles from green, red, aqua, and pink cardstock. Two for each card-for a front and back.

On one set of circles, I stamped and heat embossed the word joy. On the others, I added layers of stripes, created with white cardstock.

Shaped Christmas Card Set featuring the Circle Spin & Trim by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To make the ornament hanger, I trimmed silver glitter cardstock to size. (approximately 1” x 1”) I scored each piece of glitter cardstock in half, adhering one side to each piece of cardstock.

To have a place to “hang” the ornament from, I used my We R Memory Keepers Reinforcer Hole Punch. Punching the rings from the same silver glitter cardstock. Each ring was glued to the top, as shown.

Shaped Christmas Card Set featuring the Circle Spin & Trim by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

On the inside of each card, I added another circle, one that was the next size smaller. Look at that perfect layering! Yay! The circle gave me a place to write some quick words.

Shaped Christmas Card Set featuring the Circle Spin & Trim by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

After making these, I had so many more ideas! Wouldn’t it be cute to place a photo on the inside, above the writing? Oooh, and these would make adorable tags on Christmas gifts. Or just to use as ornaments themselves! What will you make with your Circle Spin & Trim?

Thank You Cards with the Pocket Punch Board

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here today with a trio of thank you cards. This time of year always reminds us to put our focus on gratitude and sending thank you cards is such an amazing way to express that sentiment. Using the new We R Memory Keepers Pocket Punch Board helped me make several thank you cards quickly, check them out.

Thank You Cards featuring the Pocket Punch Board by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

The Pocket Punch Board is another wonderful addition to the punch board family! This tool allows you to make several different types of pockets. And of course, it comes with an amazing guide to create pockets in whatever dimension you need for your project!

Thank You Cards featuring the Pocket Punch Board by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

The reason I was pumped about the Pocket Punch Board was this patterned paper from Pebbles that I have been hoarding. The paper was full of gorgeous thank you tags and making pockets gave me the perfect way to use them on my cards!

Thank You Cards featuring the Pocket Punch Board by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Because of the tags I would be using, I chose the pocket design with the notch. The Pocket Punch Board is incredibly easy to use. With two cuts, three scores, and a punch, my pocket was done! On these cards, I made the 4” x 3.5” pockets.

Thank You Cards featuring the Pocket Punch Board by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

There is something about the notch at the top of these pockets that gets me! Maybe it’s the nostalgic feel of library card pockets? Whatever it is, I love the look!

All the tags on my cards were cut from patterned paper. I used my Cropadile to punch the holes in the tags and threaded thick twine through each one.

Thank You Cards featuring the Pocket Punch Board by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

On each pocket, I added another thank you phrase, because, can you ever say thank you enough? I also added some stickers. While these stickers were clear, I placed them on white cardstock and trimmed them out. This made them pop more and stand out better.
