Hello everyone! It’s Eva Pizarro here on the blog today showing you a project to organize your recipes made with the new Tab Punch Board, and sharing a free printable recipe card for you.

My husband is Italian and in his family food is really important. It is more than a meal, it is a tradition. My mother in law and my husband’s grandmother are amazing cooks, they know how to do everything. A few years ago I decided I wanted to learn a few of their recipes. This little Recipe Box is helping me get organized and not lose any of those precious recipes.

I made the tabs with papers from the lovely Snow & Cocoa collection by Crate Paper. To make the tabs simply punch on the corner of your paper, flip it and punch on desired width (I chose “S”), then use the cutting track to cut off the excess paper.

To make the course titles I used my Typecast Typewriter with gold ink and the Typecast Word Strip Stickers.

I assembled my box and included a title made with a Label sticker from the Typecast Collection. Here you can see the tabs and the recipe card. The board was so easy to use! You can use it to create folders and organize your paper scraps too! Maybe that will be my next project!

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.

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.

Happy playtime!

Hot Air Balloon Baby Shower

Hello We R fans! It’s Aly here to share a fun baby shower idea with you. Recently I had the chance to share some honeycomb paper party ideas on a local Utah daytime talk show, Studio 5. This baby shower or toddler party idea was one of them. I love the hot air balloon trend, and thought it would be fun to combine it with the texture of the honeycomb paper. A match made in heaven, don’t you think?

First I created a fun framed sign that can be hung on a wall or used as a table centerpiece. I added a honeycomb hot air balloon in the center and then a small patterned paper basket underneath attached with paper straws. I used my electronic die cutting machine to cut some smaller hot air balloons and the title of one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books.

I think these are my favorite projects in the set–hot air balloon party favors! I attached paper boxes I made with my 123 Punch Board to the bottom of the honeycomb paper hot air balloons using paper straws, and then filled them with saltwater taffy. So fun!

How cute are the mini hot air balloons on this cake topper? I attached them with baker’s twine between some simple bamboo skewers, and poked them into the cake.

And, finally here’s a fun idea for a DIY party invitation–a pop-up honeycomb hot air balloon card! Your guests will love the fun surprise when they open the invitation.

It was easy to create all of these hot air balloon shapes in various sizes and colors with the DIY Party Honeycomb Pads and Stencils. Visit our YouTube channel HERE for helpful project and overview videos.

Goodie Bag Notebook

Hello WRMK fans!  Amanda here today.  My 9 year old daughter is in the middle of a notebook hoarding phase.  She writes in them, draws in them, and tapes little mementos in them.  I thought it would be fun to make her a custom notebook full of pockets that she could fill and stuff to her heart’s delight.

Goodie Bag Notebook by Amanda Coleman for We R Memory Keepers

At first glance, this looks like a pretty regular notebook, but it is what’s inside that makes it special.  The Cinch book binding tool from WRMK makes it super easy to create notebooks in all sorts of custom shapes and sizes.

Goodie Bag Notebook 5

Rather than using regular paper for the notebook pages, I made several goodie bags using the Oh Goodie! Goodie bag guide tool and papers and inserted them in the notebook as the pages.  I embellished the pages with ephemera and paper clips to make them both fun and functional.

Goodie Bag Notebook 3

My daughter loves rainbows and bling so a rainbow striped cover with a gold heart and letters was just perfect for her.

Goodie Bag Notebook 6

The goodie bag pocket pages can be used to hold all sorts of things, including notebook paper and pencils.  I bound the notebook with a large spiral so the notebook would have room to “grow” as my daughter stuffs it with her favorite things.

Goodie Bag Notebook 4

Colored pencils fit perfectly inside of a goodie bag pocket page.  You can take your paper and pencils with you in the same notebook!

Goodie Bag Notebook 8

The goodie bag pages can be used to store favorite photos, too.

Goodie Bag Notebook 7

The ombre glassine goodie bag 12”x12” papers come in all colors of the rainbow.   Embellish goodie bag pages with all kinds of fun doo-dads and ephemera.

Goodie Bag Notebook 9

One piece of 12”x12” Cinch book board is all you need to make the front and back cover for your goodie bag notebook.  The maximum width of a goodie bag is 5.5”, but it is easy to make them smaller, too.  Trim your covers to size depending on how tall you make the bags.

Goodie Bag Notebook 10

Use the glassine goodie bag paper to cover the front and back covers of your notebook just like you would any regular scrapbook paper.  Since the back side of the glassine paper is waxy, be sure to use an adhesive that will stick to the slick surface.

Happy March!

Honey I’m Home Banner

Hi there, Laura here. Since I am new here, you may not know, but I love making banners with the Banner Punch Board. They are so easy to make with the punch board, you can make one for any occasion.

Honey I'm Home Banner by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

The new Honey I’m Home line of papers and embellishments is adorable! The entire collection is perfect for any paper project you want to make for your home. This collection focuses on home, family and all the things we do at home. Today, I am going to show you how to make an adorable Honey I’m Home Banner that will work perfectly to hang above my kitchen window.

I chose papers that would work well in my kitchen. The great thing about using supplies from one collection is you can’t really go wrong in making everything coordinate.

Honey I'm Home Banner by Laura Silva 2

I started by trimming the papers that were going to be cut in a flag shape to 5.5 inches wide. Then, lining up the paper with the white vertical lines in the punch board, use the cutting blade at the top of the board to trim the bottom edges of the banner. Then trim those cut pieces to 7 inches long.

Honey I'm Home Banner by Laura Silva 3

Next I cut three pennant shaped banner pieces by lining up the top edge of the paper on the blue horizontal line to indicate 7 inches. This way, all the banner pieces will be the same length.

Punch holes in top of all the banner pieces.

Since the papers had a lot going on and were so cute just by themselves, I left all the pennant shaped banner pieces plain.

 

For the flag shaped banner pieces I created an embellishment for each one. The base of each embellishment was cut to 4 inches by 4 inches. The ‘Real Life’ paper had sayings on one side that were each already this size. I used one that said “our happy crazy busy family”. I attached it to the banner piece with adhesive foam squares. I used a circle Ephemera piece to add to the bottom of the square, again using foam squares to attach it.

I used the same process of layering papers and Ephemera pieces with adhesive foam squares for the other two banner flags, as well. I like using Adhesive Squares on banners to give them some extra dimension.

I used a light teal Ribbon to string the banner together.

Because the papers are double sided, you can even reverse the banner!
