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!

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!

Have a great week!

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.

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

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!

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!


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.


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.


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.


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


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


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!

High Five collection

High Five Scrapbook Page

Last month we announced the release of our latest paper collection High Five! If you missed that announcement, you can find it on our blog HERE. High Five is full of natural and earthy images, textures, and colors, and it perfect for fall! This week our designers have created some fabulous projects featuring the High Five collection, and Wendy is up first with a boy themed layout.

Hello there We R fans, Wendy Antenucci here today with some inspiration using the High Five collection.  I really love this collection as it works so well with so many types of pictures; this is a great fall collection, boy collection, and an outdoorsy collection!  Today I am using this collection to document my boy and his love for adventure.


My page began with the cut file I used as part of my title, Quick Quotes from The Cut Shoppe.  With such a large cut file, I at first thought of keeping the sentiment on the left side of the page, after moving pieces around, I finally decided to split the sentiment and sandwich my picture in between the two parts.


Once the design of my page was decided on, now comes the fun part!  This is when I work on adding in visual triangles, layers, and pops of colors to add interest to my page.  One of the best ways to create interest is through embellishment clusters which I formed here by a blank spot in my picture and on my page.


To add color at the top of my page and by my title, I used some ephemera and puffy stickers, adding interest and texture.


Designer tip: Shapes are great tools to use in creating visual triangles.  I have used a circular piece throughout the page, leading my viewer’s eyes down the page, to take in the complete design.


The High Five collection is definitely a collection I am going to need more of with 5 boys that love being outdoors!  Have fun creating, and we’d love to see what you dream up.

Typecast Scrapbook Page

Hello everyone, Wendy here today to share a sweet layout of my little boy using the new Typecast collection and the super fun Typewriters!  I have wanted a typewriter for so long now to allow me to add journaling anywhere and now We R Memory Keepers has made just that, and in pink too.

i love you by Wendy Antenucci

As I began paging through the Typecast paper pad, I was drawn to the gray and pink pages with the flowers.  I chose an 8.5×11 page to add to my 12×12 page to add some interest through color and the florals.  Using a postcard, desk pad, and bag from the Typecast collection allowed me to further add in color and textures to keep a calm layout, but elegant.  The addition of a doily and some white floral cut files from Wilna Furstenberg were the perfect touch to add to the sweetness of young love.

i love you by Wendy Antenucci-1

After establishing the main pieces of my page, I grabbed a journaling card to add some of the details to the page.  I love how easy it was to add typed journaling to my page without the hassle or running the pieces through my computer as I used to have to do.  I can’t wait to try this in my planner and my Project Life page too as it is so convenient.

The Urban Chic ephemera and Thickers worked really well with the Typecast collection, they added just the right amount of color and details.

i love you by Wendy Antenucci-3

Design Tip:  Simple design layouts don’t mean that you can’t add layers for texture and elegance, and by choosing white elements such as doilies and cut files you can easily add to the layout without taking away from the simple elegant style.

i love you by Wendy Antenucci-4

This layout will be a treasure in my little boy’s book and who knows what the future might hold for these two!  With the WRMK typewriter in your hands, there are no more excuses for not getting the story written down and in your books.

Urban Chic Projects

I’m so excited to be a guest designer on the blog today and share a couple of projects I created using the Urban Chic collection! I was so happy to work with this collection! Including some of my fave colors: pink, teal, black and white and don’t forget GOLD, it was absolutely perfect for photos of my 8 year old daughter.

GailLindner UrbanChic 1

I created a layout with photos of my daughter on her eighth birthday. Although a lot of the patterns and colors are quite bold, I pulled out a few of the softer colors to focus on.

GailLindner UrbanChic 2

Using a white cardstock background, I added interest with layers of patterned paper down either side. As there is stitching on some of the Layered Tags, I also added stitching to my layout including a hand-stitched heart on the background, framing my photos.

GailLindner UrbanChic 3

I layered up my photos with some more white cardstock, a couple of die cuts and embellished with the gorgeous stickers! A few splatters of gold mist and I love the result!

GailLindner UrbanChic 4

For my second project, I decided to create a mini album, but I wanted it to be “freestanding” so my daughter could display it proudly on her shelf! I constructed the pages from chipboard covered in some of my favourite patterns.

GailLindner UrbanChic 5

I knew I wanted this project to be dedicated to my daughter’s love of dancing so Urban Chic with all it’s very girly patterns, phrases and icons was perfect! I embellished each page simply with patterned paper, stickers, frames and die cuts.

I found a gorgeous teal fabric flower in my stash that I added to the front cover!

GailLindner UrbanChic 6

On each page also, I added a letter representing the type of dance (ballet, jazz, tap) which I made using the Mini Alphabet Punch Board.

GailLindner UrbanChic 7

I can see so many projects in my future with the Urban Chic collection! Thank you so much We R Memory Keepers for the opportunity to play with such gorgeous product!


Thank you for sharing such beautiful projects with us today Gail! So glad you were able to guest design for us. We hope you all enjoy your weekend, and happy crafting!

Rio-Inspired Scrapbook Page

The summer games begin this Friday in Rio, and we are so excited to watch them that we thought it would be fun to incorporate our excitement into the blog projects this week. Each day this week our designers have been given a project challenge that is related to the games, and let me tell you…you are in for an amazing week! Chantalle is up today, and her challenge was to create a project inspired by the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Check out what she came up with!


Hello We R fans and welcome back to the blog today! As the world focuses on Rio, it’s difficult not be drawn to the exotic nature of such an inspiring city. On my bucket list for sure, I hope I will one day be able to take in the sights and sounds myself!

Australia Zoo_1

Perhaps it’s totally stereotyped, but a lush jungle theme comes to mind when I think of South America. Living in tropical Queensland on the Eastern coast of Australia, we are never far away from a palm tree or two!

A fabulous place to visit, if you are ever our way, is Australia Zoo. We purchased some season passes last year which were wonderful, especially for the kids, as we got to go and enjoy all the zoo has to offer, as often as we liked. This interactive page captures all the fun we had on a visit during the school holidays.

Australia Zoo_2

I’ve really made use of my Fuse Tool on this project and created a flip-style mini album. For the base, I have used the reverse side of a 12×12 sheet of Fusables paper. Because it’s made of plastic, you can easily adhere any fuseable item directly to it.

Australia Zoo_3

I like to wait a good while for my Fuse Tool to heat up. The fuseables are slightly thicker than a plastic sleeve so it’s helpful to have a nice hot tool. Be careful to not rest in one spot for too long when using it though, as it will leave a hole in the material. Slowish and steady is the way!

Australia Zoo_4

For the album, I fused a Keepsake Pocket shut and popped it under a couple of 4×6 waterfall sleeves. On top of that I fused a 4×4 waterfall sleeve and a cute little Instax size sleeve as well. As you can see, this size if perfect for a credit/business card size item. These were all fused directly to my base paper apart from the Keepsake Pocket, which I actually removed so I could adhere some leaves behind it.

Australia Zoo_5

Once I was happy with the sleeves, I went about creating a tropical theme as the zoo is bursting with flora and fauna. I really wanted to build up lots of layers, just like a jungle, so I cut lots of leaf and feather shapes using a selection of colour card from a 12×12 DIY Party cardstock pad. This pad even includes metallics, which is awesome! I set my cut shapes up on either side of the cutting mat. As you can see in the pics, I have split two colours on one cutting mat. This is an awesome time saver!

Australia Zoo_6

For a bit of extra definition when layering, don’t forget to pop some areas up on foam tape. On some of the leaves and feathers, I have also added some machine stitching. One could also bring the cut shapes to life too with a bit of watercolour paint to create light and shade.

Australia Zoo_7

Let’s take a peek inside the album. The 4×4 sleeve contains some pics which the zoo photographer takes. If you want a copy, you take the sample to get printed off for you. I figure these little sample shots will just end up in the bin, so I grab mine if I see them out on display.

Australia Zoo_8

Flip this one up and underneath, I have included a kangaroo food bag, which I have used to scribble a bit about our day.

Australia Zoo_9

Some more photos are revealed underneath that. I have saved on printing by setting a few photos up on one 4×6. By doing this I was able to include 18 photos in only 3 sleeves!

Australia Zoo_10

Australia Zoo_11

To compliment the fresh tones of the cardstock, I’ve added a few little Flower Girl ephemera here and there.

Australia Zoo_12

I like to include a bit of chit chat in my pages and I don’t know why I don’t include the text on my photos more often. Another little time saver!

Australia Zoo_13

Australia Zoo_14

Right at the bottom of the album you can see the Keepsake pocket.

Australia Zoo_15

Australia Zoo_16

Australia Zoo_17

The pocket was perfect to store a copy of the treasure hunt map we completed on the day. Looking back on Erin’s little handwriting one day will be priceless. I adhered the pocket back onto my page after I had placed some foliage behind it. It’s a good idea to use a clear adhesive like glue dots etc so you don’t see you adhesive so much when you remove the items in the pocket to view them.

Australia Zoo_18

A final little touch was using my Crop-a-Dile scallop punch to give a nice bit of detail to my corners. The Fuseable paper is punchable, but it’s best to snip anything that doesn’t cut cleanly, as tearing it off will ruin it. (I’ve run over the paper with my sewing machine, as the white just looked a little plain.)

Here is another look at the full page.


Thank you so much for joining me today.

Until next time,

Happy crafting!

Let’s Go Somewhere Layout

Hello everyone, Wendy here today to share a travel layout, but for now, it is just a one day dream.  By mixing and matching different collections I was able to establish a sandy/ocean feel to match my pictures by choosing a blue/green palette with some beige.

Let's Go Somewhere by Wendy Antenucci

I was inspired to start my layout with the Good Times 4×4 square as this is exactly what travel should be (or at least I think).  To further my travel theme, I chose to fussy cut a few butterflies to sprinkle throughout my page.  But the bold element of my layout came through my favorite tool, the mini alphabet punch board!

Let's Go Somewhere by Wendy Antenucci-2

I printed out small wallet size pictures with images I found on my favorite travel site (Disney) to scatter down my page.  I wanted to make sure I had somewhere to write my thoughts/hopes/dreams and the perfect piece seemed to be a ticket style tag using the tag punch.

Let's Go Somewhere by Wendy Antenucci-3

I used the Marquee Punch to scatter little pops of color down my page imitating the bright pink trees found in one of my pictures.  The Serif Punch has a piece that I used as leaves to bring the green color into my page more and to tuck fun surprises behind my pictures.

Let's Go Somewhere by Wendy Antenucci-4

Design Tip:  Punches are great tools to have in your arsenal especially when you step out of their intended use and see what else can be created from them.

Someday I will have my own pictures of these places because I am ready to go SOMEWHERE! J

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.

minialphapinchboard_lbateman (10 of 10)

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. Hugs!







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!
