GO BIG with the Template Studio!

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a fun project perfect for Valentine’s Day! When I was teaching years ago, I would always have my students make foam fortune cookies for a fun project at Valentine’s Day. While I have made the cookies in the past look great with patterned paper, I thought, why not take it up a notch and make huge fortune cookies!?!

These cookies were a snap to make with the We R Memory Keepers Template Studio and Circle Template. To make them large, I used 22×28 Designer Poster Board in different colors.

After trimming the paper to size, according to the instructions included with the Circle Template Guide, I cut the circle out using the guide and blade. The instructions come on convenient cards that can be kept together with a loose-leaf ring, making it simple to create your shapes.

Tip: Roll and create waves with your circle of paper before attempting to create the cookie. This will get the fibers in the paper loosened. Doing this will allow the paper to bend more easily during the next steps.

template-studio-fortune-cookies-4

Fold the paper in half, as shown, but do not crease. Using your hand, create a dent in the center of the “fold.” Having the dent off-center will make the cookie look more realistic. I found that placing the edges of the circle between my knees made it easier to hold onto when creating the dent.

Touch the two outside ends together and adhere with a hot glue gun. Other liquid glues and dry adhesives will not keep the sides together.

To create the fortunes, the Mini Alphabet Punched help me create love phrases. I adhered the letters to strips of white cardstock. After determining how far out the fortunes needed to stick, I adhered the strip to the outer edge of the fortune cookie.

Valentine Cupcake Toppers

Hello, We R Memory Keeper fans, Laura here. The holidays are the perfect time to share a special little treat with the ones you love. Today, I am going to show you how to make these fun sweet Valentine cupcake toppers using the new Precision Press and the Typecast typewriter.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-1

I started with the butterfly stamp set. Line up the guide on the precision press. I aligned mine in the upper right corner. This way I could add my paper flush along the edges of the lower guide to do multiple stamp designs with ease.

I created multiples of the same design. I aligned a square of white cardstock in the corner. I started using the peach colored stamp pad with stamp number one.I repeated this process on several sheets of plain white cardstock.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-2

In between stamps, I wiped off the guide with a baby wipe and dried with a cloth. Then, I used the pink stamp pad with the second stamp.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-3

Again, I did all my butterflies with stamp two before moving on.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-4

Lastly, I used the navy stamp pad and stamp three to create the outline of the butterfly. Then, I allowed all the stamped images to dry. Once they were completely dry, I cut around the edges of each butterfly leaving a small white border around each one.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-5

I used more white cardstock and the Typecast typewriter to stamp the words “sweet valentine” on the cardstock. I love how the typewriter gives my toppers a vintage feel.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-6

I cut circles around the words to create a background for my butterfly stamped images. I also cut out circles from this beautiful pink and gold striped paper from the Typecast collection.

To assemble my cupcake toppers, I started by adhering the white typed circle to the pink and gold paper using my sticky thumb adhesive. Then, I added an adhesive foam square to the back of the butterfly to attach it to the circles.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-7

I used a strip of washi tape to attach my lollipop sticks to the back of the cupcake toppers.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-8

This is the perfect way to share a ‘sweet’ treat with your ‘sweet’ valentine, this Valentine’s Day.

These would be really adorable to make for a class party. And you could even use them without the lollipop sticks as a fun gift tag.

New Year’s Eve Party Decor

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here. I love setting up decorations for New Year’s Eve, and while the store-bought things are just fine, making my own is much more fun. This year, I was inspired by the “Kiss Kiss” paper from the Urban Chic collection to create a “kiss me at midnight” display:

wrmk-diy-party-new-years-eve-tessa-buys-1

Using the DIY Party Rosette Punch, I made several rosettes from Urban Chic patterned papers, We R Memory Keepers cardstock, and Bazzill cardstock and foil papers.

wrmk-diy-party-new-years-eve-tessa-buys-2

To make the rosettes you see here, you will need two sheets of each paper. Cut each 12×12 sheet in half (6” x 12”). Score three halves at 0.5” increments and use the rosette punch to add the detailed edge. Fold and attach the three 6” x 12” pieces together to form the rosette. For the smaller rosettes, cut the last 6” x 12” piece in half again (3” x 12”). Score the two pieces at 0.5” intervals, use the rosette punch to create the decorative edge, then secure together to form a rosette. I added a silver foil cardstock circle to the center of each rosette for some extra shine.

wrmk-diy-party-new-years-eve-tessa-buys-3

wrmk-diy-party-new-years-eve-tessa-buys-4

 

I couldn’t stop at the rosettes, so I made banners, too! For the “kiss me at midnight” banners, I used a piece of Bazzill pink foil cardstock and the Mini Alphabet Punch Board. I punched each letter according to the directions, and added the decorative notches with the punch board. I used my Crop-a-dile to punch two holes in each letter and strung the letters on silver ribbon.

wrmk-diy-party-new-years-eve-tessa-buys-5

To make the “2017” banner, I used the regular sized Alphabet Punch Board to punch the numbers from plain, white cardstock. Next, I used the DIY Party Confetti Punch to punch a lot of confetti from the silver foil cardstock that I used earlier. I covered the “2” and “1” with adhesive and placed one little piece of confetti at a time. It took a while, but the mirror ball-like effect was definitely worth it! I used DIY Party fringe tape in silver to cover the “0” and the “7”.

There’s no need to go to the party store for décor when you can make your own! We R Memory Keepers DIY Party tools make it so easy and fun. Happy creating and Happy New Year!

Girls Night Party Decor

Hello We R readers, Laura here with some fun party decor ideas for you. Have you seen the new Urban Chic collection? It is beautiful, chic, and oh so fun! The Urban Chic collection is the perfect set to create party decor to celebrate a girls night.

Girls Night Party Decor by Laura Silva 1

To start with I wanted to create some goodie bags for each girl to take home a little treat. Who doesn’t love chocolate? I used the Goodie Bag Guide on the smallest size with the paper trimmed to six inches wide. I used paper from the Urban Chic collection and was able to create four small bags out of one 12 x 12 sheet of paper.

Girls Night Party Decor by Laura Silva 2

I assembled the bags, added a little treat inside, and then added a little flag I cut out from one of the patterned papers and attached it with a fun arrow paper clip from the Oh Goodie collection.

I created some paper lanterns using the DIY Party Fringe and Score Board. I trimmed the paper to six inches tall, and created the paper lantern. I added a coordinating strip of patterned paper around the top and bottom, as well as a little handle.

I think all celebrations deserve a banner. With the banner punch board, you can create banners in a flash. I started by using the mini alphabet punch board to spell out the words ‘girls night’. The mini letters are perfect if you are creating a smaller sized banner.

Girls Night Party Decor by Laura Silva 6

I then made little banner shapes using a black and white striped paper. On the back were the cutest little closed eyelashes, so I decided to alternate between both sides of the paper. I used a pink ribbon to coordinate with the paper to string the banner together. I added the alphabet letters with foam adhesive squares.

I hung up the banner using washi tape. I set the little lanterns on the table, but you could also hang them up.

I even created a fun little donut sign using some of the Urban Chic ephemera and an acetate sheet from the Clearly Posh collection.

I added the treat bags to a plain white pot and added a fun gold saying from the Urban Chic ephemera collection.

Swim Team Party Decor

Welcome back to the We R blog! Today Kimberly is up, and she was given the challenge to create a project with a sports theme. Check out what Kimberly created below!

 

swim team party decor Kimberly Crawford

Hello We R fans! Kimberly here with a set of fun sports-party décor! We are nearing the end of the long course season for swimming and it is time for our team to celebrate those who earned their way to the state level competition! I had a couple of fun ideas, but the more We R Memory Keepers tools I pulled out, the more fun ideas I had! Creating this décor was an absolute blast! I know you will want to use some of these ideas for your next team party too!

swim team party decor 3 Kimberly Crawford

To start with, I created this bunting to look like our pool lane lines. The pool lane lines are a large part of life at the pool, and I wondered if I could make something to resemble the lane lines. I thought about the DIY Party Honeycomb and how it makes 3D shapes.

swim team party decor 4 Kimberly Crawford

So, using the DIY Party Honeycomb stencils and one pad of the DIY Party Blossom Honeycomb, I traced the smallest circle down the adhered-together side. Then I cut them out with scissors. I repeated the same process for each color of Honeycomb.

swim team party decor 5 Kimberly Crawford

To create the bunting, I grabbed a long piece of DIY Party Raffia and applied liquid glue to side of my honeycomb.

swim team party decor 6 Kimberly Crawford

I placed the Raffia in the center, along the fold, and then held the sphere in place for a moment as the glue set. After making a few of these, I quickly learned that it is better to open up the Honeycomb, create the shape, and then adhere the sides together. The Honeycomb opened up more to make the sphere seem fuller.

The minute my son saw this, he knew exactly what it was! This bunting will look great hanging on the wall, but I will be making a few more to place down the center of the tables!

swim team party decor 7 Kimberly Crawford

The DIY Party Pinatas made the perfect touch-a way to commemorate the year. I know when we take photos, these will be a fun and festive reminder! Plus, how fun to include candy inside each piñata at the tables!

swim team party decor 8 Kimberly Crawford

Hands down, my favorite party of the décor are these pompoms! Perfect for the moms and dads to take home and use to cheer on their swimmer at the event!

swim team party decor 9 Kimberly Crawford

I started with the DIY Party Fringe and Score Board with DIY Party Mylar Paper Pack. After folding the sheet of Mylar in half, I lined everything up, according to the directions. Then I slid the Fringe Tool down the guide. It moves so easy, creating perfectly spaced fringe. Then I removed the Mylar paper, opening it up to lay flat. I rolled at the middle, then folded it in half again.

swim team party decor 10 Kimberly Crawford

Using an industrial stapler, we adhered one fringe to one side of a chopstick and a second one to the other side. Perfect pompoms! Coolest part is, you could also use tissue paper in the DIY Fringe and Score Board. Imagine the colors you could customize for your team!

swim team party decor 2 Kimberly Crawford

To finish the entire ensemble off, I created banners using the Banner Punchboard and the Alphabet Punchboard.  So much fun to make! It will add so much to our celebration! Go LMST!

What does your sports team have to celebrate?

Guest Designer: Lindsay Bateman

We’re thrilled to welcome the talented and lovely Lindsay Bateman on the blog today as our guest designer! Take a look at her gorgeous projects, and then scroll down to learn a little bit more about Lindsay. Enjoy!

 

Hello everybody!

It’s Lindsay Bateman here, and I am SO very excited to be sharing with you all a couple of projects I recently made using the BRAND NEW We R Memory Keepers Mini Alphabet Punch Board in celebration of Alpha Week here over on the We R blog. Yes…you heard me right…MINI!

It is exactly the same version and concept of the original Alphabet Punch Board….except this one now makes smaller letters…1 1/2” x 2 1/2” inch alphas to be exact. They are the cutest! I used the Flower Girl collection to create both projects, one being a layout and the other a fun pennant banner.

minialphapinchboard_lbateman (1 of 1)

First, let’s have a close up look at my ‘CELEBRATE’ banner.

minialphapinchboard_lbateman (3 of 10)

I love having the option of the Mini Alphabet Punch Board because it is such a great way to create ‘smaller’ banners with long words.  Especially if one does not have a lot of extra space or room to create a huge banner with large letters.

minialphapinchboard_lbateman (5 of 10)

minialphapinchboard_lbateman (4 of 10)

To create this banner, I cut out my banner pieces from a 12×12 sheet of Flower Girl patterned paper.  I then used a different pattern paper from the same collection to create my alphas.  Following the booklet guide that comes with the punch, I punched out each individual letter. I then adhered onto my banner, embellishing with ephemera also from the Flower Girl collection.  I used my sewing machine to stitch my banners altogether to create a fun mini ‘celebrate’ decor piece.

minialphapinchboard_lbateman (6 of 10)

Next up, a traditional 12×12 page.

To be honest, I could NOT wait to create a traditional scrapbook page using the Mini Alphabet Punch.  I adore adding titles and using alphas on all of my projects, so the very fact that I could customize my own title using whatever patterns and papers my heart desired made me SO very happy.

minialphapinchboard_lbateman (9 of 10)

Using the Flower Girl collection, I decided to create a large title/phrase as the base of my page “love you sweet girl”.

minialphapinchboard_lbateman (7 of 10)

I varied up the patterns, and I also substituted photos in for a few of the letters.

minialphapinchboard_lbateman (8 of 10)

You can see just how small the letters are this punch creates, as my photos were punched using a 2” circle punch. I absolutely adore the end result.

For a finishing touch I added a few more embellishments from the collection onto my page.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hello everybody! I’m Lindsay Bateman. I live in Lac La Biche, Alberta Canada where I reside with my husband, Matthew and our 2 year old son Madix. Scrapbooking and paper crafting has been a part of my life ever since I can remember.  I am obsessed with stationary, photography and everything/anything related to documenting life!  It truly is my happy place.  Currently I am an active member on Heidi Swapp’s Media/Design Team and loving every minute!  If you would like to see more of my creative work or what is currently inspiring me, you can find me on Instagram, Pinterest and my own personal blog.

Favorite We R Product:

I would definitely have to say that my favourite We R Product is the Alphabet Punch Board (both mini and large size).  Having ONE tool with the ability to create every letter of the alphabet in literal seconds has been such a huge game changer for me.  Never has it been SO easy to create gorgeous customized alphas in every colour and pattern of paper out there. Plus it is such an amazing tool to get using up those pieces of scrap paper!  It is the best.

 

Favorite Scrapbooking/Paper Crafting Tip:

One of my favourite scrapbooking/paper crafting tips has to be organized storage.  With life being SO busy, I never want to waste my precious time that I do get to scrapbook looking and organizing my stash.  Keeping a drawer filled with my essentials (adhesive, trimmer, stamping ink, stickers) helps keep me productive, focused and more efficient when it comes to completing projects and making the most of what free time I do get to have in my day for me!

 

Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful projects and a little bit about yourself with us today Lindsay! We hope you all have an awesome weekend, and take lots of photos!

 

 

 

 

 

Celebrate Cupcake Toppers

Welcome to Alpha Week, We R fans! This week we’re sharing projects from our design team that feature letters of all forms, shapes, and sizes. You’ll see letter stickers, Thickers, and even some projects with our new Mini Alphabet Punch Board! So sit back, grab a drink, and enjoy some awesome ABC inspiration!

Hello, We R Memory Keepers readers, Laura here today with some fun cupcake toppers you can easily customize for any party occasion. These cupcake toppers will give you a reason to celebrate any time!

Celebrate Cupcake Toppers by Laura Silva 1

To start creating these cupcake toppers, you will use a 2 inch scalloped circle punch to create cut outs of acetate sheets from the Clearly Posh collection. I used the Confetti Dots with Gold Foil and the Confetti Dots with Silver Foil. I love the acetate sheets. They are clear with a pattern on them, so they work perfect for overlays.

Celebrate Cupcake Toppers by Laura Silva 2

I added black Thickers chipboard letter stickers to the top of my punch outs, alternating the gold foil and silver foil for every other letter to spell out ‘CELEBRATE’. You could spell out any word you want on your cupcake toppers.

Celebrate Cupcake Toppers by Laura Silva 3

I then cut out more scallop circles using my punch from Mylar gold and silver cardstock sheets. These Mylar sheets are amazing. They are either gold or silver on both sides of the sheet. I have seen some gold cardstock that is gold on one side and silver on the other.

Celebrate Cupcake Toppers by Laura Silva 4

I applied double-sided red tape to the top edge of a lollipop stick for each letter. Peel off the red backing and attach the stick to the back of the acetate sheet and the front of the mylar sheet.

Celebrate Cupcake Toppers by Laura Silva 5

Insert the cupcake toppers into your cupcakes and you are ready to celebrate! You could change up the look of these toppers really easily by changing the color or style of the Thickers letters, or even the background color of the Mylar sheet. You could use numbers from the Thickers sheets to celebrate a particular birthday, you could spell out a name, or any party themed word.

Beach Ball Garland

Hello! Eva Pizarro here today on the blog showing you a fun garland inspired by this week’s theme: The Beach. When I think of the beach I think bright sunny colors and lots of fun! That’s why I created a super easy beach ball garland using my  DIY Party Globe Punch and some cardstock.

Beach Ball Garland by Eva Pizarro 1

To make the garland I started with a 4 x 7 ½  inch white paper. The punch is very easy to use, just follow the instructions sheet that comes with your tool. Here are some quick photos of how I made mine.

 

Align the paper to the center of the punch. Press and move your paper left to the next alignment guide, punch again and move left to the raised V on base. Punch all your paper. Rotate your paper 180 degrees and do the same with the other side.

Beach Ball Garland by Eva Pizarro 2

To add a bit of color I punched some pink, yellow and blue papers and separated each punched panel. I glued them to my white cardstock globe with some string glue adhesive. If you want you can use paint to add color too!

Beach Ball Garland by Eva Pizarro 3

Assembly the bottom of the globe by interlocking the hooks behind each other

Beach Ball Garland by Eva Pizarro 4

On the top, interlock the hooks around the LED cord.

Beach Ball Garland by Eva Pizarro 5

Continue this process and cover all your LED lights with beach balls

Beach Ball Garland by Eva Pizarro 6

Isn’t this garland cute? You can use them as a summer decor or maybe for a party! If you want you can punch out some shapes on the garland panels and light the garland at night!

Beach Ball Garland by Eva Pizarro 7

This globe punch is so cute and I love that I can use different materials to achieve different looks! And after I am done using it I can disassemble the beach balls and store them for the next party!

Template Studio Party Decor

Hello We R fans and welcome back to the blog today!

 

My little Miss is going to be celebrating her sixth birthday tomorrow and preparations for her special day are in full swing! Living in tropical Queensland, winter is pretty mild, but there is always a chance that the weather will turn on the day, so I want to bring a touch of summer to the festivities.

6today_1

My party decor has been put together using only a few supplies – the WRMK Template Studio and some cardstock! I’ve used the circle template to create the awesome cones (which I saw a long time ago and have been keen to try for aaaaaaages) the placemats and the party hats.

 

To make the 4 place settings, cones and hats I used:

 

4x A2 sheets of cream card

4x A2 sheets of green card

2x A2 sheets of pink card

a little bit of glitter tape and some ribbon/twine/thin elastic

 

To start, I used the measurements set out on the instructions that come with the Template Studio Guides. One can purchase the guides separately or in the starter kit which comes with 5 templates and allows you to create large scale gift bags, envelopes, boxes, home decor and more!

6today_2

I created the placemats first, which called for a trimmed piece of card, 16×16 inches each.

6today_3

Once I had cut down the card to the correct size, I laid each one on the mat and used the circle guide to cut my circles.

6today_4

I accented my placemats simply with some pretty white doilies.

6today_5

Next on the decor list were the ice cream cones. The cones I saw actually floated, which is such a fantastic idea. One could use the smaller circle template and create cones the size of the party hats instead. I wanted a centered focal point, so I went with the larger circle template instead and created the larger cones. The paper called for a 22 x 22 inch piece of card for each cone. I trimmed and cut as per the instructions above and was left with 4 bigger cream circles, which I rolled into cones.

6today_6

I threaded the balloons, complete with twine, down through the centre of the cone and adhered the twine to the bottom of the cone so the balloon had a stable base in which to rest.

6today_7

 

My third party project was to create some matching party hats. No party would be complete without a hat! So I went about fashioning some out of pink card. These hats also took a 16” x 16” piece of card each. After I created the circles, I cut them in half and then cut them again, at 45 degrees to the halfway line, as show in the image below. Bring the two ends together and you have a super cute party hat!

6today_8

I popped a hole on each side of the hat and threaded a ribbon though the hole, securing it on the inside of the hat.

 

Next step was to make the little bows for the outside of the hats. I used the One Piece Bow Die to create the shape, snipping off the little bit that secures the bow together. I replaced this part with some green glitter tape to coordinate with the placemats.

6today_9

Don’t they look adorable!

6today_10

6today_11

Also on my table are some super adorable and brand new number mini pinatas! I decorated my number 6’s very simply with white and gold DIY Fringe tape.

6today_13

You can choose to display your pinatas on the table or create seriously inexpensive mini cake stands with a plate and a disposable cup!

6today_12

You may have noticed that I have used my absolute fave string lights on the table too. I just can’t get enough of them! I’ve popped some white butterfly bulb covers onto a few of the lights and woven it along the centrepiece. I love the gentle glow it gives off. Other finishing touches are some DIY Party bright confetti and some flamingo silhouettes I cut out using my Cameo.

Thank you for joining me today. Wishing you many hours of happy crafting until we meet again!

Honeycomb Paper Fruit Party Decor

Hello friends! It’s Aly Dosdall here today. Looking for decor ideas for a summer party?  Or, maybe you’re hosting a luau soon? Look no further than the DIY Party collectionHoneycomb Paper shapes are a colorful and festive way to decorate for any summer get-together. Here are a few ideas for customizing those honeycomb decorations for some summer fun.

For easy fruit decorations for hanging or for use as centerpieces, grab an orange, red, or yellow Honeycomb Pad, cut fruit shapes using the Honeycomb Stencils, and add some green paper leaves. For a centerpiece, trim the bottom of the honeycomb fruit shapes so they’re flat before fanning them out so they will sit well on the table.

You can also draw your own shapes on the honeycomb pads to create different types of fruit decor.

Tip: When adding honeycomb shapes to straws (or other thick items), try cutting off the glued edge of the pad first so it will fit around, then add some glue to secure it to the straw.

Lollipop sticks topped with honeycomb shapes make for darling cupcake toppers. With sticks this thin there’s no need to cut off the glued edge of the honeycomb paper.

I cut some freehand fruit from the Honeycomb Pads for the banner, and I used one of my favorite crafting tools, the Alphabet Punch Board, to punch the letters from Bazzill Gold Foil Cardstock. Love how it turned out!

Honeycomb paper is so much fun to create and decorate with. I love the texture, dimension, and color it adds to party decor. Recently I shared these ideas, plus more honeycomb paper party decor ideas, on a local Utah lifestyle show, Studio 5. You can watch my spot on their website HERE. Enjoy!
