Memory Planner Scrapbook Page

Happy Friday friends! It’s Aly here with you again, and I’m really excited to share a special Memory Planner spread with you for National Scrapbook Day. Most of my memory keeping these days either happens in my planner, a traveler’s notebook, or a pocket style album. My daughter and I recently took a trip to Boston and New York City, so I recorded some memories on the April spread in my Heidi Swapp monthly planner.

I love scrapbooking on a smaller scale in my planner where I’m recording details about my life anyway. It just makes sense with my busy schedule, and saves me time while still allowing me to capture important memories.

I used the new DCWV Journaling Premium Stack and the Okey Dokey Stack to embellish my planner spread. The Journaling Stack is full of labels, cards, tags, and other goodies you can punch out and use for journaling in or embellishing your planner.

Heatwave Pen by We R Memory Keepers

I used my Heatwave Pen, some gold foil, and a Heatwave Template to add some gold metallic handwriting to the left side of the planner spread. I love the sparkle it adds!

Next I created a DIY accent tag with my Tag Punch Board as a layer in a cluster of embellishments. I love that I can customize the size and shape of my tag with this awesome punch board!

I was able to add plenty of journaling about our trip by typing it onto some cards from the Journaling Stack, and including the cards in an envelope I made with the Mini Envelope Punch Board.

Happy Jig Planner Spread

Hello everybody! Soraya here with you today for a new planner project using the amazing Happy Jig. I love how fun and easy this tool is, you can really make any design or shape you want. Let’s make a paperclip and a planner closure band together!

Happy Jig Planner Spread by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

To make the “hello” paperclip, I followed the instructions in the booklet and cut the correct amount of wire (17inch). Then I placed all the different pegs on the board and started to shape the word.

To make the planner closure band you will need white elastic, scissors, the new Crafter’s Essentials USB Mini Glue Gun and the word “happy” (previously made with the Happy Jig).

First of all,  cut the white elastic to the right length in order to fit around your planner (don’t forget to leave one inch more for the edges). Pass the elastic through the word and stick the ends using the glue gun.

Planner Pocket with the New Trim & Score Board

Hello everybody! Soraya here to share with you a fun and easy tutorial to make your own planner pockets using one of the new amazing releases of We R Memory Keepers that you could discover a few days ago at the Creativation show: the new Trim & Score Board !

DIY Planner Pocket by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Trim and Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

To make this cute planner pocket I used a patterned paper from the FUSEables Collection. First, I used the Trim function to cut the paper. I could easily see how sturdy and stable the board is compared to the former one. I cut my paper at 7 – 3/8 inch x 6 – ¾ inch to fit in my mini Memory Planner.

Trim and Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

Then, I turned the blue guide on the other side to score my paper in the middle. This new system is on point since it prevents the paper from slipping on the board. And since I used a plastic paper, it was very useful to get it stable!

Trim and Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

To create the folder look on the pocket, I scored the top and cut it with the Trimmer.

Time to Fuse! To close the edges of the pocket, I used my Fuse and its ruler as a guide: love how it turned out! And most of all, I love the ‘stitching’ effect you have after passing the tool on the plastic sheet!

Now that the pocket is done and decorated, I just need to place it in my planner. This is why my Planner Punch Board is never too far from me! Use the chart on the back to see what is the perfect alignment for your planner and punch it!

Planner Spread with the Washi Chomper

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here. Washi tape is a staple when I am planning. For this week’s pages, I put the We R Memory Keepers Washi Chomper to use, along with some planner-friendly WRMK  washi tapes:

Planner Spread with the We R Memory Keepers Washi Chomper by Tessa Buys

First, I started with the days of the week. Using the days of the week washi and the Washi Chomper, I made a pointed label for each day. I love how the washi strips now direct my eye to that day’s appointments.

Second, I used the Washi Chomper to cut out a few yellow arrows to highlight some important details of my week. This time I created one pointed end and one notched end. I love how handy the We R Memory Keepers washi tapes are for keeping my planner organized!

Planner Spread with the We R Memory Keepers Washi Chomper by Tessa Buys

Last, I used some other WRMK washi tapes to simply decorate my page – coral borders here and there, and polka dot accents in a few places. Some Pink Paislee puffy stickers finished off the embellishing and my pages were ready for my pen.

I love how the Washi Chomper perfectly cut all my washi tape labels. I know I could do pretty much the same thing with scissors, but not nearly this neatly and uniformly. I never can seem to get my notches perfectly centered, and forget an even point. This handy tool is going straight into my planning supplies cart for many future uses!

Washi Tape Bookmarks

Good morning, We R Memory Keepers fans, Laura here today. Washi tape has to be one of my absolute favorite crafting supplies. I use it all the time in my planner, to label file folders, and for crafts. Today, I am going to show you how easy it is to make washi tape bookmarks with paperclips.

Washi Tape Bookmarks by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Start by gathering all your supplies. You will need a selection of washi tape, paper clips in various sizes, and the washi chomper.

Washi Tape Bookmarks by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

First, grab a piece of washi tape about 3 to 4 inches long.

Washi Tape Bookmarks by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Place it through the top of the paper clip. Match up the ends together and press the washi tape together. Once you get close to the paper clip, turn the washi so it is towards the top and finish placing the washi tape together.

Washi Tape Bookmarks by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

You want to always be sure to place your washi tape on this side of the paper clip with only one rounded edge so you can still slide the paper clip onto your papers and have your washi flag stick out the top.

Use the washi chomper to create the perfect v-shape at the end of your washi tape. This is so much easier than trying to carefully use scissors to cut the ends.

Washi Tape Bookmarks by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I like to do a slight variation with smaller paper clips. Start off the same way by sliding your washi tape through the top edge of the paper clip on the side.

Washi Tape Bookmarks by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

This time, fold the washi tape in half, match up the ends, and press the washi tape pieces together while leaving it on the side of the clip.

Again, use the washi chomper to create the flag shape in the washi. The washi chomper is adjustable so you can cut just about any size washi perfectly.

Washi Tape Bookmarks by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I love to use these little washi tape paper clips as bookmarks since they stay put, and I don’t have to worry about them falling out of my books. I also love them to mark the week or month in my planners.

Washi Tape Bookmarks by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

They also make an adorable gift. Simply cut a slit in the middle of a tag, attach all the paper clips in a row, and package in a clear cellophane bag.

Mixed Media Planner Dashboard

Hello We R friends! Aly here with you today to share a mixed media planner dashboard I made. I have to say, I’m a beginner at the mixed media thing, but with the Letterpress Starter Kit, the Evolution Advanced, and some paints from the Vicki Boutin Mixed Media collection this dashboard came together quickly and easily, and I’m excited to give it another go!

Mixed Media Letterpress Planner Dashboard by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Mixed Media Letterpress Planner Dashboard by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

To create this dashboard, I used a sheet of 4.25″ x 5.5″ letterpress paper that comes with the Letterpress Kit and added some brush strokes with Vicki Boutin paints in my favorite color palette.

Vicki Boutin paints on letterpress paper

I used a 3/4 soft white mop brush and started with the darkest colors. After those dried I added the medium colors, allowing them to dry, and then the lightest colors. I finished off with some touches of white paint to add some texture.

Mixed Media Letterpress Planner Dashboard by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Once all the paint dried I added a letterpress sentiment using one of the plates that comes in the kit. I trimmed a piece of double sided adhesive from the kit to fit my plate, and then placed it where I wanted the sentiment to be positioned on the dashboard with the adhesive side facing up. Then I lowered the top of the letterpress platform, pressed it into the plate with adhesive to stick the plate to the platform.

Mixed Media Letterpress Planner Dashboard by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Inking the letterpress plate with the black resin ink pad that comes with the kit was easy and a lot less messy than using a tube of ink, a roller, and an ink block. Simply turn the resin ink pad upside down and pounce it on the letterpress plate until it’s fully inked. Then lower the top of the platform and roll it through the Evolution Advanced. No need for complicated combinations of platform and shims–simply turn the dial on the Evolution Advanced to the “Letterpress” setting.

Mixed Media Letterpress Planner Dashboard by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Tip: be sure to leave a paint-free spot on your letterpress paper big enough for your letterpress plate as the resin ink won’t take well to paint.

Once the letterpress ink dried, I punched the insert with my Planner Punch Board + Spiral Disc Punch inserts and added it into my Heidi Swapp Time Flies Memory Planner.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope this project inspires you to try playing around with different combinations of paints and letterpress. Happy crafting friends!

Hole Reinforcer Punch Planner Spread

Hello everyone! It’s Eva Pizarro with you today sharing a quick Planner project using the new Hole Reinforcer Punch.

Hole Reinforcer Punch Planner Spread by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I don’t know about you but I always procrastinate some things from my daily to do list. To be able to notice important things in my planner more quickly, I decided to create small tags and attach them with small pieces of washi tape.

Hole Reinforcer Punch Planner Spread by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

To make the tags I used small pieces of patterned paper from the Creekside collection by our friends 1Canoe2 and made a small hole using my Crop a Dile. To embellish the tag and make it look perfect I added a circle using my Hole Reinforcement Punch. This punch is perfect for the Planner Lover! You can add extra pops of color in seconds and your inserts will never tear out again!

Hole Reinforcer Punch Planner Spread by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

To add a little more journaling space I used one of the 4 x 6 inch cards from the 12 x 12 Paper Pad and added some punch outs using my Hole Reinforcer punch to embellish it a little bit, specially the white side of the card.

Hole Reinforcer Punch Planner Spread by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

Tip: Put washi tape on top of patterned paper, punch, remove from the paper and you have a sticky hole reinforcer ready to go!

To embellish my spread I always use stickers that I cut and then keep it together with a clip in my planner pocket

Coin Envelope Planner Insert

Hello friends! Aly here with you again to share a cute and easy way to store items in your planner. Using the 123 Punch Board I made a coin style envelope to hold my planner accessories, and then I punched it with the Planner Punch Board to fit into my small Heidi Swapp Memory Planner. I used some beautiful paper and embellishments from the new Heart of Home collection by Jen Hadfield for Pebbles Inc.

Coin Envelope Planner Insert by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

This envelope is perfect for storing embellishments, photos, receipts or other ephemera, and I love how easy it was to make with these punch boards. Honestly, I’m not sure what I did before punch boards! Ha!

Coin Envelope Planner Insert by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Coin Envelope Planner Insert by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

To make the coin envelope, I followed the instructions on the 123 Punch Board to make a 4 x 5 1/2 inch envelope. I love that the instructions for envelopes, boxes, and bows are printed on the board. So handy!

123 Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

I cut my paper to 8×8 inches, and then lined it up on the board at 3 1/2 inches. Then I followed the instructions to punch and score on all four sides of my paper.

123 Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

There’s no need to round the corners for this envelope. Instead, I pulled out my Trim and Score Board and trimmed 7/8 inch off the top, bottom, and one side of the envelope.

Trim and Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

To assemble the envelope, I added some Sticky Thumb Red Double Sided Tape to the side that I trimmed, and then folded up the bottom flap first, then the untrimmed side, and lastly the trimmed side.

Sticky Thumb Red Double Sided Tape

In order to keep the envelope 4 inches wide for photos, I added a 1 x 5 1/2 inch strip of cardstock for punching with the Planner Punch Board.

Coin Envelope Planner Insert by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

I added a strip of washi tape to the front and back of the strip for added support for the punched holes and as an embellishment.

Next, I added a button and string closure to the envelope. I used leftover ones from some Typecast treat bags, but you can easily make your own with a 1/2 inch hole punch, some brads (or eyelets), and some twine.

Coin Envelope Planner Insert by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Finally, I added some embellishments from the Heart of Home collection on the front and back of the envelope.

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!
