Dial Trimmer Coupon Card

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva here showing you a coupon card made with the new Dial Trimmer and the Photo Sleeve Fuse Tool.

Dial Trimmer Coupon Card by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

The new Dial Trimmer has 6 different tools in one but one I love the most is the Perforate Tool, I used this feature to create a coupon card for a teen girl made with the Girl Squad collection by our friends from Pebbles Inc.

To decorate the front of my card I cut several 6 x 6 papers with the Wave Tool from my Dial Trimmer and glued them to the front of the card.

Next I used my Sprinkle Punch and decorated the inside of the card with matching colors and a shaker pocket created with a plastic sleeve and a FUSEables card base.

I marked my paper with 2.5 inch squares and typed my “coupons” with my Typecast Typewriter.  Because the paper is going to be folded like an accordion, I typed front and back left a space in the middle.

Typecast Typewriter by We R Memory Keepers

Using the Dial Trimmer with the Perforate Blade, create a perforated line every 2.5 inches.  Embellish the blank squares with paper and fold like an accordion.

To finish the front of the card use Stickers and Die Cuts from the same Girl Squad Collection.

The coupons are glued inside the card and everything is held together with some twine.

This was a Teen Girl card but you could modify this card for many occasions! The receiver just needs to slightly pull the paper and the coupon will tear off perfectly! Isn’t it cool!

I love to receive (and give) interactive cards, they are so much fun! Did you already think of someone to give a coupon card to?

Shaker Planner Dividers

Hello crafty friends! Soraya here to share with you a fun tutorial to make shaker dividers for your planner using the amazing Photo Sleeve Fuse Tool, some waterfall photo sleeves, the Planner Punch Board and lots of cute embellishments as sequins, stickers and sparkles.

Shaker Dividers by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

So here are the easy steps that I’m so excited to share! Only 5 steps to create them!

Step 1 : cut five strips of colorful paper (about 1.5 inch). They have to be of the same length of your waterfall photo sleeves (here it’s about the 4×6 sleeves). Fold them in two and place some double sided tape inside. Then stick each photo sleeve inside those papers.

Step 2 : place a cute sticker in the middle of each pocket  before using the fantastic Planner Punch Board to create the holes that will allow you to insert the dividers in your planner. So easy and fun to make!

Step 3 : time to fill the pockets with the embellishments of your choice! I used funy pineapple and flamingo sequins along with flowers,  sparkles and leaves!

Step 4 : Seal the sides of the photo sleeves using the Fuse Tool and the ruler as a guide. Make sure the dividers are the same size as the planner’s inner pages.

Step 5 : Cut the excess of the sleeves with your scissors and voilà ! The shaker dividers are ready to be placed in the planner!

Extra tip : you can also use the Tab Punch Board to create another type of dividers, but remember to cut them out of paper before adding them in the photo sleeves!

Backpack Charms with the Photo Sleeve Fuse

 Hey there We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here. Sadly, summer is winding down which means the first day of school is right around the corner. While I hate to see Summer come to an end. I LOVE back to school time. I love the beginning of a new school year with a new schedule, new supplies, and a new routine. As a mom of three, it’s also a busy time of year. This year, I’ve made it a point to prepare early! I’ve even finished school shopping for one of my kids! I’ve also started on some crafty school projects too. I love it when I can use my crafty supplies to create fun things for my kids.

Photo Sleeve Fuse Backpack Charms by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

These adorable backpack charms are SO easy to make with a few tools from We R Memory Keepers. I put my Photo Sleeve Fuse tool, the Mini Alphabet Punch Board and my trusty old Crop-a-dile to work when I created these charms.

Photo Sleeve Fuse Backpack Charms by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

The charms are made out of Fuse Instax waterfall sleeves. I did trim them down slightly after I fused the edges closed.

Photo Sleeve Fuse Backpack Charms by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

Each charm has a small piece of patterned paper, a few stickers, sequins, and my child’s initials cut out of patterned paper with the Mini Alphabet Punch Board.

The patterned paper and stickers that I used for this project are from the Lovely Day collection by American Crafts and Dear Lizzy. I love how the layered stickers look in those cute little shaker pockets.

Photo Sleeve Fuse Backpack Charms by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

I chose to punch holes in the corner of the backpack charms with the small punch on the crop-a-dile so that none of the sequins would fall out of the punched hole.

I can’t wait to tie these little charms onto my kids backpacks as they head out the door to start a brand new school year. I’m curious, what crafty back to school projects do you have planned. I’d love to hear about them!

Thank you for stopping by the We R Memory Keepers blog. I’ll see you again soon.

Soraya’s Favorite Colors: Pink, Mint and Gold Planner Spread

Hello creative people! Soraya here today to share a few planner spreads using my favorite colors : pink – mint – gold!

This is the color combo I use in every scrapbook project because I’m so addicted to pink and mint!

Planner Spread by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

To make these colorful planner spreads I also used the amazing FUSE Tool. It’s so fun to create little pockets with it! I put some sequins inside a photo sleeve, then used my FUSE Tool to close the sides before making holes with the Planner Punch Board! How cool is that punch?! It is so easy and fun to use!

I love this sweet color combo so much! Pink and mint were meant to be together! Adding some hints of gold makes the color combo more complete and feminine at the same time.

Laura’s Favorite Colors: Mint, Navy, and Gold Gift Packaging

Hello there, We R readers, Laura here. This week is all about our favorite colors. One of my favorite color combinations is mint, navy, and gold.

Today, I am going to share some gift packaging ideas with you, using these pretty colors.

Gift Packaging by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

The first package I wrapped up using my FUSE tool, papers, and embellishments. I laid out my mint chevron paper on the heat proof mat. I added the FUSEables decorative tape to the middle of the paper. Pull the tape out of the box and fold it on the premarked score lines.

Gift Packaging by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Use the FUSE tool to adhere it to the plastic paper.

Then, I added some FUSEables embellishments to the middle of the paper. I used the embellished 12 x 12 sheet to wrap up my small gift.

For the next gift, I used the 1-2-3 Punch Board to create an XL gift box from navy cardstock. Follow the instructions on the punch board to score and punch your paper to fold it up into a cute little 4” x 4” x 4” box.

123 Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

I added strips of gold and mint glitter tape to the the box. This tape is so fun and sparkly!

Gift Packaging by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Using the 1-2-3 Punch Board I created an XS bow out of navy cardstock. I added a pre-made gold bow to the top to have another gold element on my gift.

I also tucked a little teal and gold tag under the bow.

Gift Packaging by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

For the last gift packaging idea, I wanted to dress up a store bought mint gift bag. I used gold, navy, and mint fringe tape. I simply trimmed the fringe tape to fit along the front of the gift bag. It has an adhesive back to make it easy to attach to any project.

Gift Packaging by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I added a gold tassel to the handle and some gold and navy tissue paper.

Pretty gift packaging is such a fun way to add a little extra something to your special gifts you give.

Summer Shaker Card

Hello We R fans! Kimberly here with a card using the Fuse tool. It’s time to start enjoying the lazy days of summer. When I think of summer days, I think of spending time by the water, dangling my feet off the dock, and floating in the water on inflatables. With that inspiration in mind, I used the Fuse tool and some Clear Fuse Sheets to create a wave-inspired shaker card.

Summer Shaker Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Using the Fuse Ruler, I was able to create layers of waves, filled with sequins on my card. It is such a cool effect. And while this looks great on a card, I am thinking of doing this on a summer layout too!

Summer Shaker Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

After cutting my Clear Fuse Sheets to card size, I sealed the edges with the Fuse Tool using the straight edge of the Fuse Ruler. Then, using the fancy wave lines on the inside of the Fuse Ruler, I created small pockets. I started the wavy lines inside the edge seals, to keep it cleaner looking.

Summer Shaker Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Once a wavy line was created by slowly following the edge with the Fuse Tool, sequins were added to the opening. Then the next wavy line was made. I continued the pattern until I reached the end of the clear sheet.

Summer Shaker Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Some fun FUSE-ables papers were the base of my card. I added to those some great summery embellishments from the Dear Lizzy Lovely Day collection. Less Work, More Play? Yes, please!

Shaker Pocket Page with the Fuse

Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here with you today to talk about pocket pages, and share with you some tips and tricks to use your favorite tools and embellishments to showcase your photos in a very cool way!

Shaker Pocket Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

If it’s the first time you’re diving into the pocket page world, here are some product ideas that will perfectly fit: I used the amazing FUSEables embellishments, some washi tape, sequins, colorful papers and some We R Memory Keepers journaling cards.

Shaker Pocket Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

So here are some fun tips for you to create: my journaling is made with the fabulous Typecast. I love the vintage touch it gives to the pockets!

Shaker Pocket Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Use your Staple Punch Board to get extra dimension while assembling the die cuts together !

Shaker Pocket Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

When using the Fuse Tool, the Laser Square will be perfect to guide you! All you have to do is placing the Fuse Mat just under the pocket page before starting fusing!

Use the Laser Square to get straight lines with your Fuse tool.

You can place the FUSEables embellishments directly on the pocket page ! Plus, you will get a beautiful stitch effect. Before closing the top of this section, insert some sparkles in it!

Play with layers and add more FUSEables diecuts !

Pocket Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Geometric shapes can be fun too: for example in this pocket, I cut 2 patterned triangles and used my Fuse Tool to separate them. I also placed some FUSEables die cuts on the top of the pocket for the final touch.

And for this last pocket I separated it in three parts: one for the photo, one for the sequins and one more for the journaling part. The Fuse Tool is so awesome for that! Feel free to compose your pocket page the way you want!
