Alphabet Punch Boards Layout

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here, and today I’m sharing a new layout featuring both the Alphabet Punch Board and the Mini Alphabet Punch Board:

First, I pulled a few patterned papers from the Maggie Holmes Catching Dreams collection. Following the easy instructions that come with the punch boards, I made several A’s.

After punching the large text A’s, I used acrylic paint to color them. Once they were dry, I added them to my layout background. I used Sticky Thumb foam adhesives to pop up the mini A’s.

I also punched several A’s out of vellum using the Mini Alphabet Punch Board. Once arranged on my page, I used the Staple Board to attach the A’s. I love being able to staple anywhere on a 12×12 layout!

I see myself using this monogram technique on future pages! It’s a great way to add a lot of pattern and color, and monograms are classic design elements. What letter will you punch? Happy creating!

Journal in a Shape with the Typecast

Hello! It’s Eva Pizarro on the blog today showing you a fun way you can use your Typecast Typewriter and let the journaling be an important element of your layout.

To make the big journaling star I drew the shape with my electronic cutting machine, you could do it by hand but this was much easier for me! Use a pencil to make marks were your photo or title will be and then begin typing on your Typecast Typewriter with gold ink.

I used this gorgeous constellation paper you can find in the Typecast 12 x 12 inch paper pad as my base.  It has rose gold foil details that I think are perfect with the gold ink journaling.

As a base for my photo I used journaling tags and basic cards from the same Typecast collection.

For all the other details I used embellishments from the Moonstruck collection by Pink Paislee. I added a cluster on the top left of my layout to balance that big star on the right.

With the Typecast Typewriter your journaling can become an embellishment and an important part of your layout. And the best part is that you can record all those feelings and stories in a fun and cute way! I hope you try this technique! It’s really easy and with the colored ribbons you have lots of possibilities!

Have a great week!

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.

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?

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

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!

Photo Sleeve Fuse Layout

Create shakers, ephemera pockets or make a waterfall of photos with the Fuse Tool and an assortment of Fuse Keepsake Pockets.  For today’s project, I’ve made a 12X12 layout with a splash of sparkly patchwork pockets!

I started with the awesome new “High Five” Collection and the “White Wash” paper for the base.  Next, I added a 8X12 piece of the “Bullseye” paper to the center.

shellye-mcdaniel-photo-sleeve-layout2

For the shaker pockets, I used the 2X2 fuse pockets and lined the inside with a smaller swatch of paper from the 6X6 Paper Pad.  A small handful of sequins were poured end.

After allowing the Fuse tool to heat (with the rotary tip in place), it was placed alongside the Fuse Ruler and using an even amount of pressure, the open edge was sealed.  Simply trim away the excess plastic.  Be sure to use firm, steady pressure when using the tool.

shellye-mcdaniel-photo-sleeve-layout4

A high tack adhesive was used to attach the pockets to the layout.

I used various components from the “High Five” Collection to complete the embellishments: Ephemera Die-Cuts, Plastic Buttons and Cardstock Stickers.

I used small ephemera pieces layered with cardstock hearts to hide the overlapped edges of the pockets.

I love the small touch of bling that I was able to add to this clean-and-simple layout!

Frame Punch Board Scrapbook Layout

Hello We R fans and welcome back to the blog today! I’ve had lots of fun with the fabulous new Frame Punch Board. This clever tool allows you to create custom size frames – perfect for any number of project ideas! I’ve taken full advantage of this feature, with my layout using the beautiful Urban Chic Collection.

Framepblayout_11

The background of my page consists of a number of frames, which I have cut to size to fit the entire 12×12. I’ve played around with straight and rounded edges and mixed up the frame widths as well, so they are not all the same thickness all around.

Framepblayout_2

I planned out the background by cutting strips of paper and then creating the frames.

Framepblayout_3

The Frame Punch Board comes with full instructions. The magic lies in these adjustable guides, which you can pull out and pop in to a different slot. These are marked with numbers, which give you an idea of how thick you would like your frame border.

Framepblayout_4

The more you move them up, the thicker your frame border will be. Move them all the way to the first slot and you’ve got a built-in corner rounder!

Framepblayout_5

Pop the paper in and punch. This will give you your punch guides. Repeat on all four corners.

Watch the video below to see this punch board in action.

Framepblayout_6

Inside the frames I have added detail with some texture paste and a pretty stencil. I used my Typecast Typewriter to journal all about a bit of fun we had putting some temporary colour into my daughter’s hair for a party. As the page is quite busy, I felt the journaling was contrasting too much. To solve this problem, I created a little vellum sleeve. This allows me to see the text but softens it so it doesn’t clash too much with all the elements.

The little gold label sticker is from the Typecast Collection. I will admit that I didn’t get the spacing completely correct straight off the bat, but I loved how I could pop the label sheet in to the typewriter and create a custom label!

Framepblayout_9

My title is a combination of some wording from a sheet of Urban Chic ‘Wanderlust’. This paper seems to be a DT fave! How adorable are those hair clip stickers too! Perfect for my girly page.

Framepblayout_10

The gorgeous blooms in the Urban Chic collection are another fave in this line. I love cutting them out to add to my cards and layouts.

Thank you again for stopping by. Wishing you many hours of punch board fun!

Summer Sunburst Layout

Hello everyone! I am Eva Pizarro and today I want to share a quick and easy summer layout using the lovely Flower Girl Collection.

Sunburst Layout by Eva PIzarro 1

I love the bright colors of this collection and I think it is perfect for summer photos! To make this layout I started with the sunburst on the left. It is very easy to make, just draw your shapes on a scrap piece of paper, cut the pieces out and use them as a template to cut your patterned paper. I added two pictures and some embellishments clusters on the left of my photo. I used some die cuts from the Ephemera pack and Puffy Stickers.

Sunburst Layout by Eva PIzarro 2

I also included a journaling spot between my photos and used a wood veneer as my title. I love these wood shapes, they have the cutest printed designs! To add a little more color to my layout I added a few summer words to the side of my journaling spot, I used the tiny alphas included on the sticker sheets, I love that I can include some tiny words with perfectly matched colors!

Sunburst Layout by Eva PIzarro 3

I included a border on the left side of my sunburst cut from patterned paper and as a final touch I bent my sunburst borders a little bit to give more dimension.

And that’s it! I love how this page turned out, the colors really pop against my white cardstock and the sunburst always reminds me of summer, how about you? What makes you think of summer?

Have a great day!

Rosette Punch Layout

Hello there We R Fans! Kimberly here to share a fun way to use a punch! The DIY Party Rosette Punch is intended to add beautiful edges to medallions, but I thought it would be fun to go outside the box and use the punch in another way. I love to get more mileage from my paper crafting supplies!

rosette border punch layout Kimberly Crawford

With the card stock border strips I punched using DIY Party Rosette Punch, I created a frame to put around my flower photo. It created quite a focal point!

rosette border punch layout 4 Kimberly Crawford

To create the frame, I cut four strips of white card stock measuring 3” x 12.” I punched the pattern down one side of each strip. If you flip the punch upside down, you can see exactly where you are punching your pattern, allowing you to have even spacing.

Then I scored each of the strips, slightly underneath the pattern. Playing around with the spacing around the photo, I trimmed the cardstock borders to fit around the photo. To cover up the edges, I placed a piece of white card stock over the top. Then adhered my flower photo to the center.

To the rest of my layout, I used the beautiful and trendy, Flower Girl collection. The colors and patterns of everything coordinated perfectly with my photo!

I cannot wait to put this layout in a frame and hang it on the wall!

Wildflower Wedding Layout

Hello, friends! Tessa Buys here. Weddings are one of my favorite topics to scrapbook, and We R Memory Keeper’s Wildflower collection made this page of my sister’s wedding even more fun to create:

WRMK wedding layout Tessa Buys 1

The Wildflower collection was a perfect fit for a photo filled with so many different flowers and colors. I was instantly drawn to the butterflies and decided to fussy-cut several as embellishments.

WRMK wedding layout Tessa Buys 3

For some added glamour, I used a Clearly Posh acetate sheet with gold foil dots as my background. In order to attach the acetate sheet to the white cardstock base, as well as the butterflies to the page, I used the new Staple Board.

WRMK wedding layout Tessa Buys 4

I loaded the small stapler with the copper-colored staples and began lining up the Staple Board with the center of each butterfly. With a little practice at lining everything up, it was a breeze to secure everything where I wanted it, no matter how far from the edge it was. I also placed some butterflies under the acetate to give the page a little depth.

Lastly, I added gold Thickers and some typed journaling to my photo.

From the gold foil to the beautiful butterflies, Clearly Posh and Wildflower made for a beautiful page! If you are putting together a wedding album, you can’t go wrong with such pretty products. And you must get the Staple Board! I can’t wait to use it again!

Kindergarten Graduation Layout

It’s hard to believe, but we’re nearing the end of another school year. Soon graduation ceremonies will be happening, parties planned, and gifts given. So, this week our team is sharing ideas for celebrating graduation. First off, is Laura with an adorable kindergarten graduation layout.

Hello, We R Memory Keepers fans! Laura here with a fun graduation scrapbook layout for you today. I used papers from the Honey I’m Home collection, a few little Clearly Posh elements, and my FUSE tool.

Graduation Layout by Laura Silva 1

I started by creating a base for my layout using the woodgrain Lights Out paper from the Honey I’m Home collection. I layered on the blue Family Ties paper square in the upper right corner. I added the Growing Up ruler paper along the left side and a small strip of the striped I’m Home paper just next to the rulers.

Graduation Layout by Laura Silva 2

I added the gold confetti dot clear paper from the Clearly Posh collection over one of the sayings from the Real Life paper. I used the double-sided sticky tape to adhere the clear paper onto the cardstock. I then layered that over a sheet of metallic gold cardstock.

Graduation Layout by Laura Silva 3

Then, I created a fun little clear pocket using the FUSE tool. I used one of the small waterfall sleeves and my FUSE ruler as a guide to create a flag shape. I added some metallic confetti and sealed the top. I trimmed the excess plastic off the sleeve.

I attached the little confetti filled sleeve to the ‘Capture the Memories’ square at the bottom using the double-sided sticky tape.

For my son’s graduation picture, I matted it on white textured cardstock. I then layered that on the Here & Now paper. I added a gold star from my gold Thickers pack and a little strip of ruler from the sticker sheet.  I added washi tape from the Scotty Dog Washi dispenser and a leaf sticker from the Honey I’m Home collection to the bottom.

At the bottom I added gold Thickers to spell out KINDERGARTEN along with some little arrows to signify him moving on and graduating.
