Make Rosettes with the Fringe and Score Board

Hey there WRMK friends and fans, Becki here to share with you a layout I created with the Fringe and Score Board. I created some fun flower rosettes along with a really fun woven background with the Fringe and Score board. The Fringe and Score Board made creating these details on my layout SO easy!
Fringe and Score Board Scrapbook Page by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers
I started by cutting the background of my layout with the fringe and score board. I used the blade portion of the fringe and score board with the blades set at 1/2 of an inch to cut the slits for the weaving on my background. Then I cut 1/2″ strips of coordinating patterned paper to weave into the background. I stitched the strips into place so they didn’t slide in and out of place. I remember doing this paper weaving technique in grade school. It’s so easy and so fun!

Then, I created the rosettes. I used the scoring blades to score the strips for the rosettes. I did shift the paper strips so that the score marks were at every 1/4″ instead of 1/2″ because I wanted the flower rosettes to be a little less bulky on my layout. In the center of each rosette is a bit of embellishment.

I added a pop of color to the right side of my photo and even punched a lace border using the doily border punch. I love how this little detail balanced out the loads of color on the left side of my photo. I love how this layout turned out and can’t wait to use this technique over and over again. Thank you for stopping by the We R Memory Keepers blog. I’ll see you again soon!

National Scrapbook Day Roundup

Happy Friday, and Happy (Inter)National Scrapbook Day tomorrow! We’ve been celebrating all week with plenty of scrapbooking inspiration, and today we’re going to cap things off with a roundup of some fabulous memory-keeping projects we’ve found on the internet. We love to see what you’re creating with our projects, and we hope you enjoy the inspiration!

Use your Envelope Punch Board (or 123 Punch Board) to make pockets for your scrapbook page. You can use your pockets to include extra photos, memorabilia, or journaling. CLICK HERE for more details and a process video by Zinia Armoiridou for Hip Kit Club.

Make a statement on your scrapbook page with a large bow embellishment! Use the One Piece Bow Die and the Evolution Advanced to create your bow from your favorite patterned paper. For more photos and details about Kim Jeffress’ beautiful layout, visit the Heidi Swapp blog HERE.

Mini albums are a great way to preserve photos and memories, and we love how designer Renee Zwirek used our Glassine Papers and Frame Punch Board as part of her Cinch book. For full instructions, visit the Pebbles Inc blog HERE.

Our Font Punches are perfect for adding decorative details to letters punched with the Alphabet Punch Board, but they’re also great for adding punched embellishments to your scrapbook pages. We just love how Chantalle McDaniel added some tiny flowers to her page with the Marquee Punch.

Include beautiful hand stitched accents to your scrapbook layout with our Sew Easy Floss. CLICK HERE for more about this gorgeous inspiration piece by user Puddin Head on Scrapbook.com.

Memories don’t have to be documented in an album. Designer Kim Jeffress recorded her family adventures in a Heidi Swapp Memory Dex, and easily added her journaling directly to the cards with the Typecast typewriter. CLICK HERE for more photos and details.

Thanks for stopping by today. We hope you’ve enjoyed this scrapbooking roundup, and that you have a wonderfully crafty (Inter)National Scrapbook Day tomorrow. Crafty cheers!

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!

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

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 !

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!

Tab Punch Board Scrapbook Page

Hello there We R fans, Laura here today with a fun scrapbook layout you can easily make with the new Tab Punch Board. Earlier this month, my family and I took a trip to Lake Pleasant, AZ. It was a spur of the moment camping trip. We were itching to get out after the long winter, so going to the lake was the perfect, fun escape for the weekend.

Tab Punch Board Scrapbook Page by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

To start with I found a fun background paper from the Amy Tangerine On a Whim collection. All of the papers, embellishments, and stickers from this line are all so bright and cheerful. The paper I chose started green at the bottom and went to blue at the top. It reminded me of grass and sky.

Tab Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

I added a large white square to the background using textured cardstock. Next, I cut out 3-inch by 4-inch rectangles from different papers in the On a Whim collection. Then, using the Tab Punch board, I added a large size tab to one edge of the paper.

I used the punch board to round all the remaining corners.

Once I had all of the pieces tabbed, I added them to my scrapbook page using my tape runner.

Tab Punch Board Scrapbook Page by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I printed out small sized photos using my home printer. This way I was able to size them just right and add a white border around each one. I added different die-cut ephemera to embellish my page. The cactus was perfect since we were camping in the desert.

Tab Punch Board Scrapbook Layout by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I used one of the heart die-cuts to add the information about our trip on the page.

Since our trip was “on a whim” and a last minute decision, I thought adding the matching chipboard sticker was a fun way to show that on my page. Since most of the layout was pretty flat, the chipboard adds a little dimension to the page.

The Tab Punch Board is such a fun way to dress up a plain mat on your scrapbook pages.

Mini Album with the Typecast and Fuse

Hello there, We R friends! It’s Aly Dosdall back again to share a sweet mini album all about my daughters. Like some of you, scrapbooking was my gateway into the world of paper crafts. It’s my first love, not only because of the creative outlet it provides, but also because I believe in documenting stories.

Mini Album by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Typecast typewriter and Photo Sleeve Fuse

While I love scrapbooking for the creativity, I don’t always have time for complicated, time-consuming pages. I really don’t want that to prevent me from telling important stories though, so I decided to use a Heidi Swapp Photo Journal from the Magnolia Jane collection to make a quick mini album about my relationship with my wonderful daughters.

Mini Album by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Typecast typewriter and Photo Sleeve Fuse

What I love about this photo journal, is that I can continue to add to it as we make memories and have stories to tell. I started out the album with some photos from Easter this year, and I plan on adding to it about once a quarter until it’s full.

Mini Album by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Typecast typewriter and Photo Sleeve Fuse

I created a cover page, a page for each of my three girls, and a fun decorative shaker pocket page where I included some extra journaling.

In this album, each of the pages is a pocket that you slide your photo (or patterned paper, journaling card, or shaker pocket) into, so it was easy to slide in my shaker pocket once I created it.

Mini Album by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Typecast typewriter and Photo Sleeve Fuse

I started with a 4×4 inch waterfall sleeve, and inserted a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch piece of patterned paper, some confetti, some wood veneer shapes, and some sequins.

Then I used my Photo Sleeve Fuse to seal the waterfall sleeve shut, and trimmed off the excess.

I added a couple of stickers on the front of the shaker pocket, so that the shaker pieces won’t cover them up. Then I inserted the shaker pocket into the album.

Tip: adding some double sided tape to the back of the shaker pocket holds it in place nicely in the album.

It was easy to add my journaling with the Typecast typewriter to some tags and journaling cards. I love that I can run my journaling spots right through the typewriter!

Typecast Scrapbook Page

Happy Monday friends, and welcome! This week on the blog, we’re celebrating all things scrapbooking and memory-keeping in honor of International Scrapbook Day this Saturday. Our designers have created some wonderful projects, so be sure to come back each day this week. Let’s get started with a beautiful Typecast layout!

 

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here. Scrapbooking was my first paper crafting love, and almost 20 years later, it’s still my favorite format for memory keeping. It isn’t hard to stay excited when you get to play with tools like the We R Memory Keepers Typecast typewriter and accessories!

Typecast Scrapbook Page by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

I pulled a favorite sheet of patterned paper from the 8.5×11 paper pad to begin. I matted my photo and mounted it on a piece of patterned paper trimmed from the same paper pad. I placed that next to a Typecast greeting card, which I secured shut with adhesive (although that could be a great place for hidden journaling!). Before adhering anything to the page, I traced those elements with a pencil and fed the background paper into my typewriter.

Typecast Scrapbook Page by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

Making sure to stay outside my pencil lines, I typed my journaling. I am still not an expert typist, so my type isn’t perfect, but that’s the charm I love most about using my Typecast typewriter.

Typecast Scrapbook Page by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

I also typed a phrase onto a Typecast sticker label. I love that I can feed the sticker sheet directly into my typewriter. So easy!

Typecast Scrapbook Page by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

When all my typing was finished, I assembled my layout. I added Thickers for a title and sequin stickers as accents. Simple, fast, and with the Typecast and accessories, stylish!

Scrapbooking will always hold a place in my heart, and this Typecast typewriter is making its own little space there, too. Happy creating, and happy National Scrapbooking Day!

Tab Punch Board Scrapbook Page

Hi! Welcome to the We R blog! It’s Eva Pizarro here today sharing a layout made with some of my favorite We R tools!

Tab Punch Board Scrapbook Page by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

The Tab Punch Board is perfect for making folders and planner dividers but I love to use it on my layouts too! IN this layout I use it to add hidden photographs and you could also use it to add a hidden journaling! I also used my Fringe and Score Tool to cut perfect strips of paper to create my background. I use a lot of paper strips in my layouts and this is a quick way to make them!

We R Memory Keepers Fringe and Score Board

With the Tab Punch Board you can make tabs anywhere you want, and in different widths too, it’s really easy to use.

The perfect match for your tabs is the Typecast Typewriter and the tiny stickers strips you can find in their collection. I used my Typecast to add my journaling and titles for my tabs.

I placed my tabs underneath my picture, each tab has a photograph of the species we saw at an exhibit last spring.

For this layout I used the Tealightful collection by our sister brand Pebbles, I think it is perfect for my Spring photos!

I love how this layout turned out! My We R Memory Keepers tools made the process so much easy and fun!

Shaker Pennant Scrapbook Page

Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here with you today and I’m very excited to share a new project! Let’s make 4 fun shaker pennants with the Photo Sleeve Fuse Tool along with the amazing Fuse Mat to embellish your layouts!

Shaker Pennant Scrapbook Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

To make these fun shaky pennants you will need one or two  waterfall photo sleeves (depending on how big you want your pennants to be), the Banner Punch Board, your Fuse Tool and mat, FUSEables papers and embellishments. You will also need scissors and an adhesive runner.

Shaker Pennant Scrapbook Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

First of all, grab your Banner Punch Board and make 4 little pennants (mine are 2.5 inches) in 4 different patterned FUSEables papers.

Shaker Pennant Scrapbook Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Then place one pennant in a waterfall photo sleeve, Fuse the smallest edge and use your scissors to trim all around (don’t forget to leave one inch margin to close it after). Insert some sequins inside and again use your Fuse to close the pennant. So easy!

And this is what you get when you make them all! Aren’t they so cute? You can insert sequins, sparkles, glitter… or any little embellishment you want if you are making bigger pennants! The possibilities are endless as long as you have a Fuse to make it!

Shaker Pennant Scrapbook Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

I also used my Fuse Tool to place some embellishments all around my photo and at the top of my layout as well. I just love the « stitch » effect you have with the FUSEables pieces!

To place my 4 pennants on my layout, I simply added a FUSEables surface first, then I repeated the same process with the Fuse Tool to stick them on it.

And here is the final result with some extra details! I hope you had fun joining me today for this new project! Don’t hesitate to use your Fuse Tool and some waterfall photo sleeves to create extra embellishments for your projects just like I did, it’s so much fun and easy! You will love it!

Alphabet Punch Boards Layout

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here, and today I’m sharing a new layout featuring both the Alphabet Punch Board and the Mini Alphabet Punch Board:

Alphabet Punch Boards Layout by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

First, I pulled a few patterned papers from the Maggie Holmes Catching Dreams collection. Following the easy instructions that come with the punch boards, I made several A’s.

Alphabet Punch Boards Layout by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

After punching the large text A’s, I used acrylic paint to color them. Once they were dry, I added them to my layout background. I used Sticky Thumb foam adhesives to pop up the mini A’s.

Alphabet Punch Boards Layout by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

I also punched several A’s out of vellum using the Mini Alphabet Punch Board. Once arranged on my page, I used the Staple Board to attach the A’s. I love being able to staple anywhere on a 12×12 layout!

Alphabet Punch Boards Layout by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

I see myself using this monogram technique on future pages! It’s a great way to add a lot of pattern and color, and monograms are classic design elements. What letter will you punch? Happy creating!

Photo Sleeve Fuse Layout

Create shakers, ephemera pockets or make a waterfall of photos with the Fuse Tool and an assortment of Fuse Keepsake Pockets.  For today’s project, I’ve made a 12X12 layout with a splash of sparkly patchwork pockets!

shellye-mcdaniel-photo-sleeve-layout1

I started with the awesome new “High Five” Collection and the “White Wash” paper for the base.  Next, I added a 8X12 piece of the “Bullseye” paper to the center.

shellye-mcdaniel-photo-sleeve-layout2

For the shaker pockets, I used the 2X2 fuse pockets and lined the inside with a smaller swatch of paper from the 6X6 Paper Pad.  A small handful of sequins were poured end.

shellye-mcdaniel-photo-sleeve-layout3

After allowing the Fuse tool to heat (with the rotary tip in place), it was placed alongside the Fuse Ruler and using an even amount of pressure, the open edge was sealed.  Simply trim away the excess plastic.  Be sure to use firm, steady pressure when using the tool.

shellye-mcdaniel-photo-sleeve-layout4

A high tack adhesive was used to attach the pockets to the layout.

shellye-mcdaniel-photo-sleeve-layout5

I used various components from the “High Five” Collection to complete the embellishments: Ephemera Die-Cuts, Plastic Buttons and Cardstock Stickers.

shellye-mcdaniel-photo-sleeve-layout6

I used small ephemera pieces layered with cardstock hearts to hide the overlapped edges of the pockets.

I love the small touch of bling that I was able to add to this clean-and-simple layout!
