Hello happy crafters! Soraya here today to share a cute holiday gift idea using the amazing Happy Jig : a holiday mug! Yes, this is definitely the hot cocoa season so why not offer a special mug to your family and friends?! So let’s make it!
First of all, use the various sizes of pegs of your Happy Jig to create the word “yum” (don’t forget to allow more lengh of wire on both edges). I chose to use the pink wire.
With the Trim & Score board, trim a large stripe of paper and with the Clear Cut Punch, create a pretty label.
Cut the label in two parts and glue them on the strip of paper that you previously placed around the mug as shown in the photo below.
Now for the last part: cut a beautiful heart with the Clear Cut Punch and add some gold washi tape on the mug for a festive look. The Happy Jig word comes now on the top of your decoration. I love how it turned out! And a small glittered tree is perfect for the final touch! Et voilà!
I hope you had fun joining me today for this holiday tutorial! Have fun with your Happy Jig and until next time!

Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here to share some holiday treats to offer to your family and friends because Christmas is around the corner! It’s the most wonderful time of the year and at We R Memory Keepers we have the best tools to inspire you creating cute and fun treats!
To make these five boxes and pouches I used the amazing DIY Party Board. This board allows you to create so many different projects! We’ll be making a little basket, a treat pouch, a chocolate bar paper wrap, a French fry cone and a Christmas tree! So you’ll need patterned papers, scissors, felt, embellishments and the Circle Clear Cut Punch.
Santa’s basket: use the DIY Party Board to create a big cup wrap with a 10×10 red patterned paper. Add a thin strip of paper to create the handle of the basket and cut some pieces of felt to create Santa’s belt and some snow all around the cup. Place some yummy chocolate in a plastic bag before putting them into the basket!
Treat pouch: use a 9×9 patterned paper to create the pouch. Fill it with delicious sweets and add a bow to decorate it! You can add more glittering washi tape and foam stickers (like the tree).
The candy cone: use a 7×7 patterned paper to create a french fry cone and decorate it with a border of gold fringe and some silver stars! Now you just need to fill it with chocolate and candy canes. So cute!
The Christmas tree: use a 6×6 patterned paper to create the shape of a mini party hat that will turn into a Christmas tree! Add a star on top and some red baker’s twine all around the tree as a garland. Stick some pearls and use the Circle Clear Cut Punch to create a circle base that will be the chocolate holder! So fun to hide the chocolate inside the tree!
The chocolate bar: use a 6×6 patterned paper to create a snow cone wrap! This wrap will perfectly fit the chocolate bar! Add some baker’s twine and holiday embellishments.
Aren’t they so cute?!
Hope you had fun joining me, happy creating and happy holidays to everyone!
Hello everybody! Soraya here today to share three holiday cards using the Precision Press Advanced!
Card 1 : #happyholidays
The Precision Press Advanced combined with the layered stamps allows you to create beautiful textured images. All you have to do is stamp one layer at a time with different color ink pads.
I used transparent ink for the last layer in order to heat emboss with gold powder.
I added some watercolor all around this pretty bird before typing the sentiment with my Typecast Typewriter.
Card 2 : Share
For this second card, I stamped a stack of gifts with the same color combo I used before. Then cut it out and placed it on the card with 3D foam pads.
Card 3 : Merry & Bright
This card has a lot of dimension and texture thanks to the sewing circles, the wood veeners accents and the flower I stamped with 3 different colors to add more depth.
And voilà! Here are some details about the three holiday cards.
I hope you had fun joining me today! Happy creating everyone and until next time!

Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here today to share some of my Gratitude Journal spreads using the fabulous new Journal Studio tools!
The Travel Workspace is so handy and smart that you can use it at home too, place your tools in its pockets and place your inserts under the elastics! My opening page is made with hand lettering. I added some washi tape thanks to the Washi Tape Keychain which contains samples of my favorite We R washi tape!
The mini trimmer is so cute! And it has the ideal size to trim my photos and other small pieces of paper I need for my Gratitude Journal.
When it comes to writing down my journaling, I love using different types and styles. This is why I hand lettered the title “my family” and used the new Magnetic Stencils to write the numbers from 1 to 4. So easy and fun!
The 3 Way Corner Punch is also very useful to fit your paper on the journal pages and to avoid the corners of the paper going beyond the notebook.
For this new spread, I wanted to represent all the sides of my job I’m thankful for, so I drew a happy wheel using the Journal Guide. I could note everything in and out of the circle and add a color chart.
Let’s decorate the journal itself with the Happy Jig. I followed the instruction book to create the word “thank” and add “ful” at the end. I was able to place this beautiful word directly on the elastic of the cover. I love how it turned!
And here are my Gratitude Journal spreads!
What about you? Do you have a Gratitude Journal? What are your favorite tools to use while creating?
I hope you had fun joining me today, happy creating everyone and until next time!

Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here today to talk about one of the most amazing tools for planner addicts like me: the Planner Punch Board! You can add as many pages as you want, you can insert homemade dividers, photo pages, various documents… with only one tool! Let’s collect our memorabilia and let’s fill our planners with what makes us happy!
I’m using the Heidi Swapp mini Memory Planner but as you can see, the Planner Punch board can be used with any planner! So smart! Just give a look at the chart (behind the tool) and find your planner reference to know exactly where you’ll need to place the little punches.
Once you’re ok with the settings, just place your piece of paper (mine measures 17cm x 9cm) on the Planner Punch Board. You will need to line up the paper against the guide on the left edge. Then punch it. So easy and perfectly adapted to your planner!
To give a lovely finished look, I love using the Hole Reinforcer Punch. The kraft paper is the perfect color to contrast with the page and it’s a nice fall color too.
You can also add more cards to your planner thanks to the Planner Punch Board. It’s fun to fussy cut the cards you have on some 12×12 papers.
Collect your memories by adding your kids drawings into your planner! I love how my daughter draws horses, she’s always making art for me and I just can’t throw them away. So I decided to collect them by trimming the papers and using the Planner Punch Board to keep them forever!
And voilà! The finished planner spreads are looking awesome with all those collected memories, photos and drawings!
What about you? How much do you love the Planner Punch board? Happy creating everyone and until next time!

Hello everybody! Soraya here today to share fun ideas to make your own Halloween treat bags and decorate them using the Tassel Loom! The tassels will become a bat, a witch’s broom and a ghost !
First of all you will need to make 3 tassels out of twine and yarn. The bat and the ghost are made with the Stitch Happy threads and the witch broom is made with orange cotton yarn. The Tassel Loom is the perfect tool to create all the any size tassel!
Let’s start with the witch broom tassel! Instead of using yarn to create a handle for it, I used a piece of brown wire (the one in the Happy Jig collection) and twisted it on the top. This is one spooky broom so I added two scary eyes on it and some spiders too!
The tassel bat is made in black thread. I cut two wings in a black embossed cardstock with my scissors and glued them on the back before adding a “boo” brad on the front.
The tassel ghost is my favorite one! I made a white tassel using thread at the smallest size the Tassel Loom could do. I added the eyes and the mouth with crystal dots. How fun!
And here are the three tassels reunited!
Let’s make the bags now! The Fringe & Score Board helped me shape the carstock with perfect lines! Don’t forget to let some room in the middle using the small ruler. There will have to be about 2 inches on both edges.
Use the Mini Score Board to mark the fold on the paper (they will be the bottom of the bag).
Place the treat bag inside then glue each fringe together with the Mini Glue Gun. Then gather all the fringes in one paper border like this:
Time to decorate each bag with the funny tassels! And voilà!
I hope you had fun joining me today, happy creating everyone and until next time!

Hi everybody! Soraya here today to share 3 ways to make beautiful gift wrap using the new We R Memory Keepers gifting tools: the Bow Loom, the Jumbo Pompom Maker and the Tassel Loom!
Let’s start by making a giant pompom! The Jumbo Pompom Maker is easy and fun to use, first of all you have to wrap the yarn of your choice around the 2 arms. Then close them for the Pompom Maker to look like a circle.
Use your scissors to cut the yarn in between the arms and proceed this way all around the perimeter. Tie a knot in the middle and open the arms to free the big pompom!
To cut the paper wrap I used the amazing Gift Wrap Trimmer and added the pompom like the cherry on top!
Here is another fun tutorial to make beautiful tassel! You can follow the instructions you have in the packaging but basically all you have to do is to wrap some thread or yarn around the opened Tassel Loom.
Then tie a knot in the middle of the loom (this knot will help hanging the tassel). Cut the the looped material on both edges. Close the Tassel Loom then tie another knot before popping out the final tassel!
I decided to go with some gold thread in order to decorate the top of the tassel. Love the sparkly touch!
Time to wrap it all (still with the Gift Wrap Trimmer) and decorate the present with girly embellishments.
And lastly, lets make a fun bow using the Bow Loom! Wrap your ribbon around two corresponding size rods and pass a thread through the triangle slot. Once your bow is totally secured, you can slide it off the tool.
Hope you had fun joining me today! You will love those new tools for sure! Happy creating everyone and until next time!

Hi everybody ! Soraya here today to share 3 of my favorite We R Memory Keepers tools : the Happy Jig, the 1-2-3 Punch Board and the Hole Reinforcer Punch ! Let’s start with the Happy Jig.
How amazing is this tool that allows you to create any word you want ?! I just love how versatile it is since you can decorate any project thanks to its colorful wires. It’s very delightful to create with the Happy Jig, above all for my planner spreads and layouts. You can easily add more dimension and texture not to mention the multitude of shapes that you can make.
The 1-2-3 Punch Board is forever my favorite ! I’m a real lover for everything boxes ! Any occasion can be celebrated with party favor boxes or treat bags. Last year I made a hundred of mini boxes for my nephew baptism it was awesome to make them with this amazing Punch Board ! Halloween treats are also my favorite boxes to do (and the bows are so gorgeous too!).
The Hole Reinforcer Punch helps you to save your teared papers but it also allows you to create with so much fun ! As an embellishment, as a sparkling planner garland or as a cute paperclip, this small tool can make big things !
What about you ? What are your favorite tools by We R Memory Keepers ? Happy creating everyone and until next time !

Hi We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here today to give you some of my storage tips! I love organizing my work space as it constantly evolves depending on the project I’m working in. Let’s have a look on my documenting station, homemade paper storage, my drawers and my glitter factory!
I have a whole desk dedicated to documention: I definitely think that it’s more handy and useful to have everything in the same place than having them separated in drawers and boxes. It is also my cute/kawaii place where I can display all the pretty unicorn and panda stuff!
I store my papers in a wooden tower that I totally hand made! They are all organized by brand and collection so that I can easily find them. If you want to learn how to make your own you can see the how to on my blog!
There is also in my scraproom a specific corner for my stationary! I’m so in love with notebooks, planners, travel notebooks and all the colorful brush pens that I decided to gather them! Here is another tip for you: use a make up storage container (the clear drawers) to store all of your pencils and brush pens!
My Label It maker and all its accessories are stored in those blue baskets so that I can easily reach them. It’s very handy for storing all the colorful tapes.
I have a thing with small transparent containers as you can see in my drawers! I just love to store all my pretty little embellishments in them, this is why you can see them everywhere in my scraproom! This is perfect to organize the wood veeners and the sequins as well.
This little shelf is like a small boutique for me, this is why I call it “my glitter factory”. This is a tray that was intially made to store the cutlery but when you install it vertically you get a cute shelf to store the glitter containers! How cool?!
Hope you had fun joining me with all those storage tips. Happy organizing everyone and until next time!
