Favorite Colors Project Roundup

Hello and Happy Friday friends! This week our team has shared projects inspired by some of their favorite colors. Did you notice a theme? Our designers all love gold and either teal or mint! We’re kind of partial to teal too. 😉

Color schemes are a great starting point for a project, and a perfect source for inspiration. Today we thought it would be fun to share some past blog projects that were inspired by a particular color scheme to help jumpstart your creativity.

We R Inspired by Colors

Pink and Gold Gift Wrap

Monochromatic color schemes can be so beautiful when done right. We love the various intensities of pink, complemented by the shimmery gold embossed paper in this lovely gift wrap project. That rich embossed texture is easy to achieve with the Evolution Advanced and Next Level Embossing Folders. Stunning! CLICK HERE for more gorgeous pink projects and details.

Swim Team Party Decor

School or team colors are a perfect source of inspiration if you’re throwing a party with a sports or graduation theme. This swim team party decor started with the team colors, and we just love how it turned out. The DIY Party Collection, Alphabet Punch Board, and Banner Punch Board made everything come together in a snap. So much fun! You can find more photos and instructions for this project HERE.

Mint, Gold, and Black Card

This beautiful card is another example of using a monochromatic color scheme. These colors, along with some other vibrant hues, are found in our older Urban Chic Collection. We love the grounding black color along with the other neutral, gold. Gorgeous! CLICK HERE for more photos and details about this project.

Olympics-Inspired Mini Album

This unique sports-themed mini album was inspired by the Olympic rings and colors. The circular pages are attached using the Crop-A-Dile II, and the colorful embellishments are from our older Flower Girl Collection. You can find more photos and details about this project on our blog HERE.

Colorful Scrapbook Page

This scrapbook layout was also made with our older Urban Chic Collection, but is basically limited to the aqua, black, white, and pink from the color scheme. Those colors complement each other perfectly! Remember, you don’t have to use all of the colors and patterns in a paper collection. CLICK HERE for more photos and details about this layout on our blog.

Thanks for joining us today. We hope you’ve found some colorful inspiration. Have a wonderful and crafty weekend friends! We’ll see you next week.

Patriotic Party Favors

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a fun and quick treat bag for your Fourth of July celebrations! Each year on the Fourth, everyone spends the day, following the parade, at my parent’s house on the lake. After the day in the sun, we head back into town early, to get good seats for the fireworks. The littles, and let’s face it, the big people too, get a bit restless waiting for dusk. So, I thought it would be fun to make little treat bags to keep everyone entertained and happy. The We R Memory Keepers Scallop Goodie Bag Guide helped me put these festive packages together easily!

With a few seasonal treats and silly accessories, these bags will be a hit!

I started by using the Scallop Goodie Bag Guide to cut a few pieces of food-safe glassine papers. The Guide allows you to tear the paper by simply pulling. It also has a straight-edge for getting crisp folds.

Inside each bag are Pop Rocks candy, licorice, glow bracelets, glow wants, and a pair of ridiculous sunglasses. Lots of fun! I see selfies happening already!

On each bag, I attached a medallion I created with ribbon and a pre-made star burst from the Oh Goodie line.

Patriotic Party Favors by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To get clean cut edges on my ribbon, I used the Ribbon Cutter tool. This tool not only cuts the ribbon, but seals it too. To get the notched ends in the ribbon, I folded it in half before placing it in the tool. The sharper the angle it is placed in the tool, the deeper the notch.

These cute bags came together quickly. Who needs to make these for their Fourth of July celebration?

Tooth Fairy Boxes

Hello everyone! Chantalle here, welcoming you back to the blog today.

My dear daughter has a changing smile at the moment, as she has started to loose a few more teeth. That little face, complete with a gappy grin just melts my heart! She has been using her brother’s homemade Lego tooth fairy box to store her tiny treasures, but I thought creating some special boxes would be a sweet way to mark the occasions.

I’ve created three types of small boxes. Well, strictly speaking they are not all boxes! For variety, I’ve made a little box, a box envelope and a little cone shaped one. Let me show you each one in a little more detail…

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The box envelope one was created using my 123 Punch Board. It’s extremely similar to creating a regular envelope on the board, with the exception of creating a few extra score lines.

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The little green box opens to reveal some bright insides. (For those of you who keep your little one’s teeth, this little box could provide a neat storage option.)

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I used the smallest size noted on the measurement chart on the 123 Punch Board. The overall size of the box is 1 ¾ inches squared and uses a piece of bright and beautiful Amy Tangerine On a Whim, ‘Let’s Leaf’ trimmed to 6 x6 inches.

The paper is scored and punched on both sides to reveal the box shape. Use the notch punch, which is cleverly incorporated into the punch board (along with a corner rounder) to create the grooves where the top sections fold in to each other to close the box. Tip: Close opposites sides of the box first.

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I’ve decorated the outside of the box with some Heidi Swapp Rub ons, some Amy Tangerine Washi Tape and Stickers.

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Inside, I have filled the box with some lovely yellow Vicki Boutin Tissue paper for a bit of fun.

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The box envelope is very easily put together, as mentioned earlier. I started off with a piece of paper, trimmed down to 5 1/8 inches squared and followed the prompts in the instructions for the 123 Punch Board. Inside this box, is a pull out card where we can record the details of the tooth or a message to the Tooth Fairy.

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

A handy storage idea (and so that the Tooth Fairy can make a quick getaway if she chooses to leave the envelope behind) is to include a little packet to keep the tooth in, if you are worried about it falling out. I picked these ones up at a Dollar Store.

Another tip I thought I would share, is to close the envelope with a removable glue dot. That way, you can open and close it without causing any damage. The envelope has been embellished quite simply, using some High Five items, like a button, some stickers and a die cut circle. This one would be great for a little Mister who has lost a tooth as well!

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The third little box turned out to be my daughter’s favourite and she used it straight away!

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Using my DIY Party Board I placed a sheet of Amy Tangerine On a Whim, ‘Sprinkle’ on to the board and cut a small triangular shape from the bottom. Note: I used the smaller guide and just cut a section off that I thought would work. You can of course, cut as big a shape as you like. I rolled up the shape, glued it shut and folded the top in a bit, further persuading it to stay in the rolled shape.

For a non-permanent closure, I have used a folded Oh Goodie Starburst Closure and a decorative bulldog clip. To the clip, I have attached a small tag with details of the tooth and finished it off with a cute butterfly die cut from a pack of Flower Girl Ephemera.

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers
So excited to pop her tooth inside!

It’s just a matter of time before that gap widens, as we have the neighbouring top tooth loose as well!

Interactive Valentine’s Day Card

Hello it’s Chantalle. Thank you for visiting the blog today! If your heart is bursting with love for your Valentine, than I have the perfect ‘fully loaded’ idea for you! This special interactive card can hold lots and lots of love and comes in it’s own gift bag, thank to the Goodie Bag Guide Tool.

Valentine's Day Gift Pouch by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The treat bag was created using some beautiful teal ombre glassine paper. You can find this shade, along with a few others, inside a pack of Oh Goodie Glassine Papers. The outside of the bag has been simply embellished with some rub ons and a few bits of heart shaped Crush Ephemera. Those awesome big rubs ons are actually a part of the new Photo Lights range. They go on super smooth and have a great gloss finish.

Interactive Valentine's Day Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

This card is 7×5 inches. I wanted to it to be big enough to handle all the bits inside but not so big that it becomes overwhelming.

Interactive Valentine's Day Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Let’s take a closer look at how it came together…

Valentine's Day Gift Pouch by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I started out with a sheet of 12×12 Crush ‘XOXO’. I cut it down to 10×10 inches, folded it in half and then trimmed the length down a touch more until it felt ‘right’. (This ended up being 7 inches.)

I wanted to add lots of pockets to the inside of my card to be able to store love notes etc. A great way to do this was to create a few little mini folders using my Tab Punch Board. How gorgeous is that marble effect Bazzill cardstock! I machine stitched the edges shut and adhered them in a waterfall fashion to the inside of my card. I thought it would be fun to be able to see them peeping out from inside the card so I used my Goodie Bag Guide Tool to create a semi-circular shape…


… This part lifts up to reveal the little folders below.

Interactive Valentine's Day Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The first folder contains a love note, which I penned with the help of my Typecast Typewriter.

There is also a little tag, which I have jazzed up a bit with some ribbon, Crush Ephemera and Crush Accent Stickers.

Interactive Valentine's Day Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I’ve also created some coordinating bits and pieces to embellish the pockets.

Interactive Valentine's Day Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Create custom clips by hot glueing some ephemera onto an oversized paper clip or re-fashion some outdated epoxy clips by removing the sticker and replacing it with a cute button. Cut a pennant and adhere to a toothpick for a cute mini flag. These options are quick and very cost effective.


Interactive Valentine's Day Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

All this loaded goodness needs to be presented to your special someone in a cute envelope. I used my Scalloped Goodie Bag Guide Tool to shape the teal glassine paper and fold it around the card.


The gift bag was lovingly finished off with a butterfly seal, from the Typecast Wax Seal Kit.

Interactive Valentine's Day Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I wanted to make sure I got the shape perfect, so I practised on some wax paper first. The smell of the wax melting took me straight back to being a child and watching my Mother seal parcels for the mail. I remember her carefully sealing the knots she had made with string. The memory was unexpected and really wonderful.


I hope my little card has inspired you to try something a bit different for your Valentine this year!

Halloween Caramel Corn Bags

Hello everyone, Wendy here today to share a yummy project with you that is perfect to give away!  The new Halloween Goodie Bags made today’s project a breeze to put together and the oils don’t bleed through keeping your treats intact!


My first bag was made from the Ombre Glassine paper.  I chose to decorate my bag with the Oh Goodie Tags, some ribbon, and the adhesive sequins giving an elegant twist to Halloween goodies.


Doilies are one of my favorite staples in my scrap room and I use them in all of my projects.  Today I chose to cut my doily to embellish both sides of the bag being tied together by another Oh Goodie Tag and Ribbon.  Some gold sparkly Thickers announced the yummy treat in style.  I chose a star pattern from the Pattern Glassine pack for this bag.


My next bag was created from the Halloween Glassine paper.  Once I had torn my edges in my bag, I chose a die to cut a window out of the front of the bag.  I backed the window with vellum so that the yummy treats could be seen, but wouldn’t fall out.


For those of you Caramel Corn lovers, I thought I would share my recipe and one last picture of my goodie basket all ready to be handed out.

Carmel Corn

½ cup unpopped Popcorn
1 cup packed brown sugar
½ cup margarine
¼ cup light corn syrup
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda

Heat oven to 200.  Pop popcorn and dispose of unpopped kernals.  Cook brown sugar, margarine, corn syrup, and salt in saucepan over medium heat.  Once bubbly, cook for 5 minutes, then remove from heat and mix in baking soda.  Pour sugar mixture over popcorn.  Bake for 1 hour, mixing every 15 minutes.  Enjoy!

Spider & Bat Goodie Bags

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here with Halloween treats that I made for my little nieces with the Goodie Bag Guide and Halloween glassine papers:


The spider topper was a cinch to make! Using the small DIY Party Pom Pom Maker, I created the spider body. I used a black yarn with some sparkle because spiders are just less spooky when they glitter!


I used chenille stems to make the legs, curling up one end for a foot and creating a joint with a sharp bend. I also added googly eyes for some cute factor.


I made a goodie bag with the spider web paper and filled it with yummy caramels.


I stapled the bag shut with some sparkly tulle – again, non-spooky and cute! Last, I hot-glued the spider and his legs to the tulle bow.


The bat topper was easy, too. I made another yarn pom pom body and attached googly eyes. For the wings, I cut a bow out of black cardstock using the We R Memory Keepers one-piece bow die. The tails on the bow made me think of wings, and bows are a great way to make a creepy creature cuter!


Again, I made a goodie bag using the Goodie Bag Guide out of the bat paper and sealed it by stapling a tulle bow to the top. I hot-glued the bat in place and the pair of treats was ready to gift!



If you’re looking for a crafty way to dress up treats for the little ones this Halloween, give these cute critters a go! Happy creating, and happy Halloween!

Halloween Treat Boxes

Happy Monday friends, and welcome to Trick-or-Treat Week! Actually, it’s more like just plain old Treat Week because our design team will be sharing creative ideas for packaging Halloween treats all week long. We’ve got some inspiring projects lined up, so enjoy!


Hey there, We R fans. It’s Aly here again sharing a set of Halloween Treat Boxes that I made using the Template Studio and some Designer Poster Board. October marks the start of the baking season at our house, and I’m always looking for a creative way to package homebaked goodies for our family and friends.


Combining the Template Studio with the new Oh Goodie Halloween Glassine Papers turned out to be the perfect solution! I lined my boxes with the adorably spooky, grease-proof, food-safe 12×12 papers, and my yummy cinnamon sugar bread was packaged safe and sound. Not to mention it looks pretty cute, too!


These papers are super versatile–they’re perfect for making goodie bags with the Goodie Bag Guide and the Scalloped Goodie Bag Guide, or you can use them as a liner for other treat packaging and containers. Awesome.


Making the treat boxes with the Template Studio is so convenient because I can select from a variety of sizes to create a box that fits the contents I’ll be packaging. You can watch a video tutorial for making boxes with the Template Studio on our YouTube channel HERE.


Once I finished making my boxes, I secured them with thin strips of cardstock to coordinate with the box colors. You could use ribbon or twine as well.


I found some cute Halloween designs and cut them out with my electronic cutting machine. I used my Fringe and Score Board to make the rosette for the above box.


To personalize my treat boxes I added labels and tags from the Typecast paper collection and typed sentiments directly onto them with my Typecast Typewriter.


I love how easy it is to add text to my projects with the typewriter, especially since I’m not so good and writing things by hand. And the typewriting looks so cool!


I hope you enjoyed some inspiration and my little crafting hack. Try using the Oh Goodie glassine bags to line your treat packaging. They’re easy to use and they look adorable too! Creative cheers!

Fall Gift Idea: Caramel Apple Popcorn Goodie Bags

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here with a delicious gift idea for fall. If you love caramel apples, you’re going to love this caramel apple popcorn:


Throughout the fall I make several large batches of this yummy stuff. It’s a basic caramel popcorn with dried apple slices tossed in. I love to share, so I pulled out a few sheets of Oh Goodie glassine paper and made some apple-themed goodie bags to fill with popcorn.


I used the scalloped Goodie Bag Guide to make my bags. I chose red paper because I used red apples in the recipe. Once filled with popcorn, I stapled ribbon to the closed bags. The green ribbon is like leaves and the gingham is for a fun, fall touch.


I covered up the staple with an Oh Goodie gold seal. I used the Typeset typewriter to type the names of my gift recipients on Typeset washi strips.


As you can see in the recipe below, this popcorn isn’t short on greasy ingredients. I love that the Oh Goodie glassine paper is so grease-resistant! You can’t see any spots, which keeps the bags pretty for gift-giving.




Caramel Apple Popcorn (source: cookiesandcups.com)


1 cup unpopped corn kernels
2 (2.5 oz) bags of apple chips
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
½ cup butter
1 tsp salt
1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk


Preheat oven to 250 degrees (or skip baking the popcorn and enjoy ooey-gooey).
Pop your kernels into a large bowl and pick out any unpopped kernels.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt.
When mixture is melted and it begins to boil, add the sweetened condensed milk and continue stirring for five minutes (to prevent burning).
Remove from heat and pour over popcorn and apples. Stir to evenly coat.
Bake in oven for 45-50 minutes, stirring every ten minutes. (Or, like me, enjoy at this point!)
Remove from oven, break into pieces, and allow to cool.


I’d love to know what you think if you give this recipe a try, and I’d love to see your Goodie Bags, too! Enjoy creating!
