Storage Tips with Soraya Maes

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?!

Using Washi Tape in Your Planner

Hello everybody! Soraya here to share a new planner spread using tons of washi tape as we’re digging into Washi Tape week on the We R Memory Keepers blog! I must admit that washi tape is my favorite embellishment and spreading it in all my projects is always lots of fun!

Using Washi Tape in Your Planner by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Using Washi Tape in Your Planner by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Here is the first spread I made. It’s a basic a weekly double page with hand lettering. I used different colors and sizes of washi rolls to structure and organize the week. If you want to write directly on washi you should chose a permanent marker for a better result.

Using Washi Tape in Your Planner by Soraya Maes for We R Memory KeepersUsing Washi Tape in Your Planner by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Before adding the embellishments I wrote down the journaling with my Typecast typewriter. I will forever love the authentic style you can get with a typewriter!

For this second spread, I played with the amazing Word Punch Board! How easy and fun it is to create a summer design. Here is how I did it: on a white piece of cardstock I placed a layer of washi tape right on the edge. I placed the letters “SUM-ER” in the Word Punch Board then punched it. I took the “M” and moved it over one slot before punching again. I made a whole phrase like this using different colors of washi tape! So fun, I tell you!

I cut all around the washi tape borders before placing them on my planner spread and decorating them!

Document Your Travels with a Pocket Page

Hi We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here to share a pocket page inspiration today using some fun tools like the Confetti Punch, the new USB Power Heat Tool and the Alphabet Punch Board. I will also play with the cute paper pad “No Prob Llama”.

Travel Pocket Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory KeepersTravel Pocket Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

To make the title card, I used the Airbrush with a pink marker and a banner for a soft messy background. Then I created the letter E with the Alphabet Punch Board and decorated all around, using the E as the first letter of our destination: Eze Village.

The paper pad is so cute that I couldn’t help myself cutting out the designs. This is what I did with this set of cactus plants with my Detail Scissors. Then I placed it on another patterned paper, I love how it turned, it looks like a whole new card!

Let’s make a shaker pocket with a piece of vellum that I used as a journaling card. I chose vellum since it’s easy and fun to see through with all the confetti! The Typecast machine ads more authenticity to the pocket. I made all the fun confetti with the Confetti Punch, you should definitely try this one! The new USB Power Tool is awesome, I closed the pocket with it making a double line. Love the stitching effect !

Mini Envelope Scrapbook Page

Hello everybody! Soraya here with you today to share a new layout using the adorable Mini Envelope Punch Board. I love this little tool so much, it is so handy, light and easy to use, I had a lot of fun making a bunch of mini envelopes to create the final design of my layout!

Mini Envelope Punch Board Layout by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

As I wanted the smallest envelopes I went with lots of 2×2 inches pieces of paper I found on a gorgeous 12×12 patterned paper from Pink Paislee. The colorful squares were already printed so it was very easy to cut them with my Trim & Score Board.

Trim and Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

The mini envelopes measure 1×1 inch once they are folded. How cute are they all ?! They will be perfect to decorate the background.

To add more texture I decided to create the grid of the background with some stitching. The Stitch Happy made that really easy. The mint twine was the perfect texture to add more dimension.

Hi We R fans! Soraya here for another summer project: let’s put some sunshine and colors in our planners with this new spread I made with some of my favorite tools!

How to Create a Summer Planner Spread by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Do you like sprinkles? Well, if so you will love this amazing punch that allows you to create multiple sprinkles to decorate everywhere! I decided to go with a pocket sleeve that is already in my Memory Planner and fill the 3 pockets with miscellaneous colors from cardstock leftovers.

I’ve also decorated it with words from a 12×12 paper that I cut with my detail scissors. Then I  stuck them with my glue gun.

Detail Scissors by We R Memory KeepersHow to Create a Summer Planner Spread by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers featuring the USB Mini Glue Gun

 

I wanted something white and fresh to contrast with the summery colors so I went with white gesso and stuck a beautiful set of leaves directly on it.

Precision Press Advanced Scrapbook Page

Hi everyone! Soraya here with you today to share a new layout using the Precision Press Advanced! I’m so excited for this new tool–I love the fact that you can easily stamp wherever you want on your page thanks to the rotating acrylic block. I will show you how I made it!

Precision Press Advanced Scrapbook Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

As I wanted to include a big heart die in the center of the page, I decided to play with the layered butterflies stamp set and add extra dimension thanks to the Precision Press Advanced. First I used the acrylic block like a traditionnal block and stamped several butterflies on my background.

Then I used some of the gorgeous papers from the Botanical Beauty paper pad to fill the heart shape with different patterns.

On another watercolor paper I stamped several layered butterflies using different We R Memory Keepers ink colors. How easy it is to align each layer of the stamp! And I could also rotate the acrylic block to make more stamps in a row!

Precision Press Advanced Scrapbook Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Advanced Scrapbook Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Advanced Scrapbook Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Then I fussy cut all of them with my detail scissors before sticking them directly on the layout, but I only put adhesive on one half of each butterfly to create more dimension. This way, we can easily see the first image underneath.

Graduation Party Favor Idea

Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here with you today to share a new tutorial for a graduation party favor using some of my favorite tools!

Graduation Party Favor by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

To make this little cute graduation box, I used the wonderful 1-2-3 Punch Board that I LOVE ! The possibilities are endless with this board, above all when it comes to creating party favors! As this box measures 3 ¼ inches so the paper had to measure 10 inches (according to the instructions on the board).

Graduation Party Favor by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

I also used the Clear Cut Punch to create a little window so we can see the marshmallows through it. Love this frame shape and this punch is very easy to place thanks to the magnetic system! The window is made out of a little waterfall photo sleeve that I glued with the USB Power Tool Mini Glue Gun.

Now that the box is finished, I played with my Happy Jig and some rose gold wire to make the word “yay”. I followed the instructions in the book to shape the “y” and the “a” like in the “happy” word.

We now have to make the hat and tassle part to finish the graduation favor! The steps are very easy and the result is awesome! I cut a 4 ¼ inches square paper with my Trim & Score Board and another one in a light white cardboard with my Supreme Ruler and Precision Knife. I glued them together.

Planner Spread with the Typecast Typewriter

Hello everybody Soraya here with you to share a new planner spread using the wonderful typewriter by We R Memory Keepers: the Typecast! It is so easy to add journaling and stories to our projects. It also adds such an authentic look!

Planner Spread with the Typecast Typewriter by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

When I decorate my planner, I love adding lovely embellishments, tags, stickers… and journaling! Yes, the words are definitely an embellishment for me. Wether with the Typecast or with our hand writing, the words we use can immediately give some great dimension! This is what I did for this pread, I created a spring bucket list.

Using the Mini Alphabet Punch Board is also something that I love to do when it comes to decorating my planner. Those little letters are so cute, I could put them anywhere! So here is a “hello” that will welcome the spring pages. I followed the instructions on the Alphabet Punch Board App directly on my phone, it’s way cooler!

As you have to use little paper rectangles (1.5 x 2.5 inches) with the mini board, I cut them out with my fabulous Trim & Score Board. And here we go!

On a piece of thin medium wood, I used the wood burning tip to engrave the “hello”. First I traced the word with the tool, and then I went over some parts again to give it a hand lettered appearance.

Talking about handy tools, I could easily fussy cut all those adorable plants and leaves with the Detail Scissors. They will be the perfect embellishments for this spring project. I glued them with the USB Glue Gun Power Tool to keep them sercure when the sign hangs on the wall. With my Crop A Dile, I punched the holes which will allow me to tie on the natural twine for hanging.
