DIY Valentine’s Day Decor with the Big Happy Jig

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva here today sharing with you a Valentine’s Day decoration using the new Big Happy Jig.

DIY Valentine's Day Decor with the Big Happy Jig by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

If you love the regular size Happy Jig, then you are going to LOVE this new tool! It is perfect to create home decor projects with handlettering words and symbols. The new BIG Happy Jig works uses a wider wire and you can also use neon wire! How cool is that?

To create my decorations I started with a 10.5 inch wide piece of cardstock. I measured 2.5 inch on each side and created the banner. After that, I used my Crop a Dile to punch holes on the bottom and top of my wall banner.

I used my Big Happy Jig to create an ampersand with gold wire. This design is from the regular Happy Jig tool guide, you don’t need to change anything, the designs work perfectly on both tools.

One thing I love about the Big Happy Jig is that you can remove the peg case and the mat it is flat so it doesn’t use much space on your craft room.

Once you are done with your design bend the edges so you can insert the design on the banner.

I also used one design from the Happy Jig Instagram account (werhappyjig) and made two connecting hearts.

Use cotton wool and your Tassel Loom to create 5 inch tassels and one 2 inch tassel. I decorated the tassel with Stitch Happy Gold Thread so they coordinated with the wires.

Use the 5 small tassels to decorate the bottom of your banner and some thickers to write the “you” and “me” words.

I love how the ampersand floats over the banner!

For my other decor I used the 2 inch tassel and some wood beads to decorate the two hearts. I made this tassel with all 3 colors of yarn, I think it looks very cute!

Finally I made a heart banner with some hearts I cut with my Clear Cut Punch. I used the “Loves Me” collection by Pebbles Inc because the colors matched perfectly my yarns!

New Years Eve Party Decor

Hello We R fans! Soraya here today to share a decor inspiration for the New Year Eve party! Let’s make big tassels and pop it up with hot pink letters!

New Year's Eve Party Decor by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

The Tassel Loom is the perfect tool to create tassels (small, medium or large size) in a very easy way! I made several of them using pink and black/silver yarn. The color combo is girly and festive in a same time!

For the banner, I used the Alphabet Punch Board and a hot pink cardstock. I followed the instructions in the guide book to create the “Happy New Year” banner. And for the small papers (3×5 inches) I used my Trim & Score Board to easily cut them all.

Pom Pom and Tassel Halloween Garland

Hello, We R fans! Laura here today sharing how to make this adorable yarn Halloween garland using the jumbo pom pom maker and the new tassel maker.

Pom Pom and Tassel Halloween Garland by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

For this garland we are going to make pom pom pumpkins and spiders and tassel ghosts. You will need white, orange, and black yarn, plus green and silver chenille stems.

Start by creating your pom pom pumpkins. Wrap yarn around both arms of one side of the pom pom maker. I usually do about 3ish layers of yarn. You can add more yarn to make a fuller pom pom, if you want. Close the arm wrapped with yarn, snip off the spooling yard, and repeat wrapping yarn on the opposite arm.

Jumbo Pom Pom Maker by We R Memory Keepers

Trim the pom pom in the middle of the closed arms. Small sharp detail scissors work best for this.

Jumbo Pom Pom Maker by We R Memory Keepers

Cut a piece of yarn and tie it tightly through the middle of the pom pom maker. Open both arms of the pom pom maker and pull the middle apart to get your pom pom out.

For the pumpkin, cut a green chenille stem in half. Bend one of the pieces you cut in half and tie it to the yarn piece you tied around the middle. Twist the chenille stem pieces together and create a small loop at the end. This is what we will use to attach the pumpkins to the garland.

Jumbo Pom Pom Maker by We R Memory Keepers

Repeat the same process to create two more additional pumpkins.

Pom Pom and Tassel Halloween Garland by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Next, we will create the pom pom spiders. The process for creating the pom pom is the same. Instead of adding in the green chenille stem, you will add four pieces of silver chenille stems in the piece you tie to the middle.

Pom Pom and Tassel Halloween Garland by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Bend the legs at the end to create 8 spider legs. Flip the spider over and add a length of yarn about 6 inches long to the middle strand holding the pom pom together. Tie the ends together in a knot. This is what we will use to hang the spider from the garland.

Use hot glue to add googly eyes to each spider, if desired. Create a total of three spiders.

Last, we will create the tassel ghosts. Use the new tassel loom and white yarn. I found some sparkly white yarn that was perfect for these ghosts. Open the tassel loom and wrap your yarn around the 2” side.

We R Memory Keepers Tassel Loom

Tie a 6” piece of yarn around the middle of the yarn. This will create the loop to hang the tassel.

We R Memory Keepers Tassel Loom

Fold the tassel loom in half. Wrap a 12” piece of yarn about 1 inch from the top of the looped yarn. Close the loop by tucking the end into the head of the tassel.

We R Memory Keepers Tassel Loom

Slide your scissors through the grooves in the bottom of the loom and cut the looped yarn. Remove the metal rod at the top of the tassel maker to slide the tassel off the loom. Trim the ends to make them all even.

We R Memory Keepers Tassel Loom

Add ghost eyes to the tassel by tying a knot with the black yarn around a strand of white yarn. Trim the ends. I like how it almost looks like the little ghost has eye lashes! Repeat on another strand of white yarn a few strands over to create a second eye.

Pom Pom and Tassel Halloween Garland by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Create two more ghosts for the garland.

Pom Pom and Tassel Halloween Garland by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

To make the garland more interesting and cohesive, I took all three colors of yarn and loosely braided them together. I threaded each of the pumpkins, spiders, and ghosts onto the braided yarn strand. I think these little critters would be adorable tied to a Halloween present, as well!

Now my Halloween garland is ready to be hung up. I love how cute it turned out. The jumbo pom pom maker and tassel loom made this project so easy to do!

Halloween Cupcake Toppers

Hey there We R friends! It’s Aly here again with some fun Halloween party decor to share with you. I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I’m creating a holiday themed project I just can’t seem to find the right themed supplies that works with what I’ve imagined in my mind. When that happens, I turn to my non-holiday themed supplies and get creative!

Halloween Cupcake Toppers by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

This Halloween season I’ve been inspired by ravens, owls, moths, and other vintage style critter images. I wanted to create something like that for my cupcake toppers, but I didn’t have a Halloween themed stamp that looked anything like that. So, I grabbed my Precision Press Advanced, the CMYK Bird Layered Stamps, some silver, grey, and black ink pads, and went to work!

Halloween Cupcake Toppers by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers 5

The CMYK Stamps are made to work with the CMYK Ink Pads, which is how I usually create with them. But this time, I used a grayscale color scheme instead of the cyan, magenta, yellow and black to create a different look.

Halloween Cupcake Toppers by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers 6

I picked four colors of ink: silver, grey, charcoal and black, and followed the same sequence of stamping as I do with the CMYK Stamps: charcoal first, grey second, silver third, and black last.

We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Advanced

Once I stamped all of my black birds, I used my Detail Scissors to fussy cut the shapes. To dress up my cupcakes, I made some cupcake wrappers with the DIY Party Board and some black marble paper from the Pink Paislee Spellcast collection.

step out 2

Then I glued the wrappers together, and glued some black and write striped straw segments to my blackbirds with the USB Power Mini Glue Gun. Hot glue is my go-to adhesive for 3D paper crafts.

To finish off my cupcake toppers, I added black seguin stickers for the eyes, and black floss bows I made with the Bow Loom and some black Stitch Happy thread.

I love the texture that the monochromatic colors and the layered stamps create!

The toppers together with the black marble cupcake wrappers look pretty cool too!

Emoji Party Decor

Hi everybody! Soraya here today to share 5 fun tutorials on how to throw an Emoji Party using the amazing Emoji Punch Board that will allow you to create all the emojis you’ll want! Let’s make a colorful garland, decorate pretty straws, create cupcake toppers, treat bags and surprise cones! Here we go!

Emoji Party Decor by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

The Emoji Punch Board is really awesome. With a small paper square (1.5×1.5 inches) and 3 punches (or 4 depending on the face you want) you get a super fun emoji! It has never been so easy to create a smiling face! So before diving into the tutorials, you’ll need to prepare all squares to make the emojis. Here is a super tip for you: use the Square Punch Board and you’ll get all the squares very fast! I placed mine in little containers and punched about 130 various emojis.

Let’s start with the straws and the toppers. There is nothing easier: just use the USP Power Mini Glue Gun to place some emojis on them and then (for the toppers) add another circle behind for more fun!

I also used the Word Punch Board to create mini “PARTY” labels that I adhered with my Mini Glue Gun. I just love how the words pop out of the cones!

For the treat bags, I used the Clear Cut Punch to create small tags then I attached them to the kraft bags before adding the emojis and the embellishments.

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!

Patriotic Cupcake Toppers

Hello We R fans, and happy Friday! It’s Aly here again, and I’m glad you stopped by the blog today. Independence Day is a holiday with special memories and meaning for me, so I’m excited to share some Patriotic Cupcake Toppers inspired by my love for this favorite time of year.

Patriotic Cupcake Toppers by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Fireworks are a big part of the Fourth of July for me and my family, so I wanted to create the look of fireworks on my cupcake toppers. Marker Airbrush to the rescue!

Patriotic Cupcake Toppers by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Patriotic Cupcake Toppers by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

I knew I wanted to use the Marker Airbrush for the background of my cupcake toppers, so I picked out some patriotic colored markers from my stash, and created the feel of fireworks on some scraps of smooth Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock.

Marker Airbrush by We R Memory Keepers

Deciding how to add text to each topper took a bit more thought. I knew it would be easy to add Thickers, or patriotic die cut phrases, but I really wanted to keep the airbrush look consistent throughout the project. Then it hit me that I could use my Word Punch Board (shipping to retailers July 2018) to create a custom template for the Marker Airbrush!

Word Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

I punched out the letters “USA”, taped the template over my background (along with a little extra scrap of paper to completely cover it), and then used the complementary color with the Marker Airbrush to add the letters for my toppers.

Marker Airbrush by We R Memory Keepers

Once I finished adding the letters to the backgrounds, I punched them out with the Clear Cut Heart Punch. It was the perfect solution to portray my love for my country AND to quickly and easily punch out the text.

Clear Cut Heart Punch by We R Memory Keepers

To finish off my cupcake toppers, I added a few clear adhesive backed rhinestones for some sparkle, and then taped them to some fancy red and blue large sandwich picks.

Don’t they look cool with these cupcakes with the red, white, and blue swirled frosting?

Patriotic Cupcake Toppers by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Patriotic Cupcake Toppers by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

This would be a great technique to include on a patriotic greeting card, place card, or gift tag since you can easily customize the text using the Word Punch Board and the Marker Airbrush!

Throwback Thursday: Trolls Birthday Party Decor

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here! I’m lucky to be auntie to a pretty awesome niece who just had a birthday. Her party theme? Trolls! Of course, I had to contribute to her mama’s party décor:

Trolls Birthday Party Decor by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers featuring the DIY Party Board

First, I made party hats inspired by the character of Poppy. I started by using the We R Memory Keepers DIY Party Board to make hats out of pink cardstock. Next, I put double-sided tape inside the bottom of the hat, then stuck several strips of 6” wide glitter tulle to the tape. I pulled the tulle up around the hat and secured it with a ribbon sealed with the We R Memory Keepers Ribbon Cutter. To give the hats that extra “Poppy” touch, I hand cut her signature felt flowers to adorn each one.

Second, I made party blowers, again with the DIY Party Board. I used a rainbow of cardstock colors and embellished each one with another cartoony felt flower. Tip: After you’ve used the (not custom and not nearly as cute) blowers from the party store, save the blower pieces and toss the paper cones. You can glue in your own cones later!

Trolls Birthday Party Decor by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers featuring the DIY Party Board

You can’t have a birthday without banners and garlands! I made my niece a banner featuring her name with the Alphabet Punch Board. Bazzill foil cardstock made it shiny like the hats. I strung it with the same tulle I used on the hats and embellished with more Poppy-style flowers.

I also used the Banner Punch Board and the DIY Party Paper Punch: Garland to create a couple more garlands in colored cardstock. Altogether, and combined with the party décor my sister purchased in the Trolls theme, my niece had a colorful, fun, and unique party!
