Scrapbook Page with the Heart Clear Cut Punch

Hello We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here, to share a layout with you that I created with the brand new Clear Cut Punches.

I chose to work with the heart punch and create shaker boxes along the top of my layout. The laser square was the perfect tool to make sure that the hearts were straight along the top of the page. Even though I chose patterned paper for the background of my layout, the hearts are punched out of white cardstock. After punching the hearts out of white cardstock the shaker boxes were so easy to create.

I simply added acetate behind the punched hearts. Then, I added dimensional adhesive around each heart making sure that the edge of the heart was completely surrounded with adhesive. After adding the adhesive, it was time to add the sequins to each shaker box. The sequins gave the hearts a fun sparkle!

Under the shaker boxes I added a 5×7 photo of my daughter and my niece. To add a little bit of color behind the photo I added layers of patterned paper. Along the top of the patterned paper layers, I used the Tab Punch Board to create tabs. On each tab I used letter stickers to spell out the date and the names of my daughter and niece.

Below the beautiful photo you’ll see that I added a title and a bit of journaling.

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!

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!

DIY Easter Decor

Hello We R Fans and welcome back to the blog today. It felt like only yesterday I was sharing some ideas for Easter decor with you! How time flies. This wonderful and blessed time of year is almost here and again, I would love to share a little section of my craft room with you which I have decorated especially for Easter.

DIY Easter Decor by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I have two pretty simple little shelves in my room where I like to display lots of pretties, but also keep the bits and pieces I use a lot so they are close to hand. The top of the units are a perfect place to keep favourite projects or nicknacks.

I will freely admit to having a small crush on all things ‘bunny’. My collection is growing and this year I have added this adorable mini cake stand! A simple and easy way to decorate without the long term commitment is to add some hand cut bits, like a butterfly or two, with some temporary adhesive like ‘Blu Tack’. (This is an Australian product name but after searching on the net, the equivalent sounds like ‘Plasti-Tac’ or Poster Tac.)

DIY Easter Decor by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The main feature of my Easter display is a 12×12 image which I have created and displayed inside an Organization Gallery Shadow Box Frame. My ideas on how exactly it would look changed a bit during the creative process, but I wanted to create a main title with some custom lettering and I also knew I wanted to have several elements making up the whole display.

For my title, I started off by trimming the pieces of paper I would need for my word ‘EASTER”. I used my Mini Alphabet Punch Board (which takes 1.5 inch x 2.5 inch pieces) to punch out my letters. These soft florals are from the new Pebbles line, ’Simple Life’.

Once all the letters were complete, I then made swift work of lining them all up in a straight line, with my Laser Square.

For added interest over the pretty woodgrain print of the paper, I did some basic black stamping with this floral stamp from the new Vicki Boutin collection. This stamp set also comes with coordinating metal dies, so I cut some of the shapes out of similar paper and then used the shapes to build up layers of stickers and ephemera I started assembling.

Here is a closer look at some of the details. You might notice a touch of vellum at the bottom of the little stack. This paper is SO pretty and the touches of gold were perfect for the overall look and feel of this display piece. Other tiny details are the mini flowers I created using an Elegant Font Punch . I added a little centre to the flower shape with some white Crystal Drops.

And here is how the framed piece turned out!

I’ve echoed those beautiful butterflies here and there. They have been hand-cut from a sheet of Wildflower ‘Butterfly Garden’.

Pops of gold shine in the opposite corner on this piece of ephemera from the Take Me Away collection by Pink Paislee. Both of these stacks include some Simple Life stickerspuffy stickers and hand cut flowers.

The last item incorporated into my display is this super cute 5×7 Photo Light. The acrylic frame is backlit and this one has a natural wood finish so it coordinated well with the white shelving and woodgrain papers in the frame.

For my photo light, I set up a document the same size in Photoshop. I then used some digital Pink Paislee Citrus Bliss elements and added some text. (note, I changed the colour of the little ‘oh so cute’ ephemera to better match the background pattern.)

I then printed my digital pic onto some Photo Light Printable Backlit Film Paper. NOTE: It’s important to print onto the more matte side as the ink will not stick to the glossier side. (Hold the paper up the light and give it a little feel to see which side feels more glossy.) It’s also worth printing a reversed copy of your image, so it is a bit more protected when it’s under the top magnetic plate.

The printed image sits on top of the light box area but underneath a protective sheet made from sturdy acrylic which has magnets in the corners to keep your image in place.

This is how fabulous it looks when it’s turned on! Note: The frame runs off 3x AA batteries or a Micro USB cable (not included).

Wishing you, your families and friends, a very happy time together. Until next time
