Gratitude Jar

Hello everyone! Welcome to the We R blog! It’s Eva Pizarro here today sharing how to turn a common mason jar into a Gratitude Jar with the help of your favorite We R tools.

Grateful Jar by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

Gratitude is a beautiful virtue and what better way to practice it than with a Gratitude Jar? You can use it with your family or to give to a friend during this holiday season. I decorated the jar and the lid and also hung a tag with a few papers for writing down things you’re grateful for.

To make the tag I cut some 2×3 plain copy paper and then used the Perforate blade on my Dial Trimmer to make them tearable.

I stapled my paper together with The Staple Board set at “L” for large, and then glued this pad of paper to a tag.

The tag has a scallop border made with the Dial Trimmer and I used the Reinforce Hole Punch to decorate it.

The jar is just a common mason jar that has a Thickers phrase attached. I love these pink Thickers from The Heart of Home Collection by Pebbles. Aren’t they super cute?

Finally, to decorate the lid I used some papers from the same collection and a heart I made using my Heart Clear Cut Punch. You can punch anywhere on the page and align everything perfectly. I love these punches!

Have you ever made a Grateful Jar? You can start this year! Teach your kids that you can find a reason to be grateful everyday.

Throwback Thursday: Teacher Notepads

Hello there friends! It’s Aly here today sharing a quick and easy gift idea for your child’s new teacher this year.  Since my daughter spends so much time at school, and her teacher works so hard, I like to let her teacher know how much I appreciate everything she does at the start of the school year. Check out how I made these DIY Perforated Notepads with my new Dial Trimmer.

To create these teacher notepads, I had to cut several sheets of paper to size, score the covers, and perforate the pages inside. I was able to do all of this with just one tool. So easy!

The Staple Board made it easy to bind the notepad pages together with the covers. I love the copper staples–so chunky and pretty!

To make these back-to-school teacher gifts, I started by trimming the covers to 3×12 inch strips using my Dial Trimmer. That will make (3×6 inch notepads.) All I had to do was align my paper in the guide, turn the dial to the straight blade, then pull it down.

Then I rotated the dial to the scoring blade, and scored the covers at 6 inches and 6 7/8 inches.

I folded the 6 inch score line so that my cover pattern was on the outside, then I folded the 6 7/8 inch score line the opposite direction. This is what the cover should look like after scoring and folding:

Next I trimmed some lined paper to 3×5 7/8 inches (to make sure the bottom edges of the lined paper don’t peek out passed the edges of the cover). I perforated the top of each one at 7/8 inch–it was easy to turn the dial and do with the same tool! Yes!

After perforating the lines pages, I assembled the notepads.

I used the Staple Board to bind the covers and pages. I recommend using thin text weight paper inside. Depending on the thickness of your paper, you can staple between 7-10 pages inside your cardstock cover with the large staples. Test out how many you can do with scraps of the paper you will be using.

Use the guides on the board to align your staple perfectly, and then press down on a hard stable surface using your bodyweight to help.

Once I stapled the notepads, I added a few embellishments from the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams collection to the front to match the covers from the same collection. I chose sentiments that I hope will inspire the teacher.

I love that you can pull each page out if needed. I love the perforating feature of the Dial Trimmer–so many possibilities!

This project is a great teacher gift, but would also be perfect for your student, friends, neighbors, or coworkers. Everyone can always use another notebook. Especially when it’s handmade with love.

This project took minutes with my new Dial Trimmer, and I hope my daughter’s second grade teacher enjoys them and will put them to good use. Thanks for joining me, and happy back-to-school crafting friends!

Our Favorite Colors: Double Page Scrapbook Layout

Hello again WeR fans! Thank you for stopping by the blog this week, as we share our favourite colour combinations! I cannot walk past anything pink. The hotter the better… I am well and truly a child of the Eighties in that regard!

Pink goes with so many colours but I really love an Aqua/Teal and Gold combination. Throw in a pop of black for good measure and it’s perfection, haha.

It’s very seldom that I create a double page layout. The second page always seems a bit daunting I guess. The layout I have created using my favourite colours though, seemed right for a double. The emotion while I created it just spilled out past twelve inches and I’m really glad I went with it, because I love how it turned out.

Double Page Layout by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The main focal area has a circular design that expands outwards from the image. Staples hold the photo in place, adding texture and colour.

 Double Page Layout by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The grid pattern also extends out onto white cardstock. The lines and circles have been added in by hand to give a sense of continuity.

Double Page Layout by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

To start, I selected the sweet but not-too-overpowering design of a sheet of Flower Girl ‘Sweets’. (I will admit that I hoard my WeR papers and accessories now!)

The grid lines were perfect to extend my design on to a second page.

I then used my Circle Clear Cut Punch to punch a 2 inch circle into the centre of the patterned paper, below which I would adhere my image.

Using the clever circle shapes molded into my WRMK Square Guide , I traced a light pencil mark around the photo. This would serve as a guide to where I was going to be stapling.

The WRMK Staple Board allows you to punch anywhere on a project! With three sizes of staplers to choose from, it’s powerful magnetic system holds your paper in place while you staple. I’ve used the small and large size staples and adjusted the base accordingly.

It was a bit of trial and error getting the staples in exactly the correct position, but after a few goes I had worked out a bit of a system, rotating the paper as I went. It took a bit of time, but I really like the effect.

Staple Board by We R Memory Keepers

I used a fine artline pen to extend the lines onto the plain white cardstock…

… And one of my favourite Vicki Boutin Stamp & Die Set (circles) along with a juicy pink ink from my Vicki Boutin Color Wheel Ink Pad. These pads are so clever and compact – giving you collections of warm or cool colours. A must for the stash!

My Acrylic Stamp Blocks allowed me to see exactly where my stamping would be placed and the grid lines printed on the block make lining things up really easy.

Double Page Layout by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory KeepersDouble Page Layout by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

There are lots of lots of little coordinating details on this layout. I gathered matching elements, and used up lots of things I have been keeping for a rainy day. One thing I will say is this – if you are holding on to something, use it. Use the nice things – don’t keep them hidden away.

Double Page Layout by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Another fantastic function of the Staple Board is that it comes with built-in storage, which is really handy for keeping little things like staples organized. You can purchase refill boxes of staples, which come in 3 sizes and 4 colours.

Staple Board by We R Memory Keepers

These Shimelle ‘Glitter Girl’ Shaker Stickers are a perfect example of me keeping things, lol. Sooo easy on the eye, these shaker stickers have been squirreled away. I’m so glad I used one on this page! I love it and will be using them instead of looking at them for sure.

Double Page Layout by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

More little details – another favourite (of which I now sadly have no more) are the ‘Pick me Up’ Rub Ons by Paige Evans for Pink Paislee. They are wonderful!

Double Page Layout by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I’m definitely seeing more double in my future!

DIY Mermaid Party Decor

Good Monday morning crafty friends! Aly here with you today. A Mermaid Party is the perfect way to celebrate a birthday, shower, or other special occasion during the summer months. Since all things mermaid are so popular right now, there’s plenty of inspiration online.  I decided to dive in to this nautical trend, and I’m excited to share some easy DIY Mermaid Party Decor I created.

DIY Mermaid Party Decor by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

To make this Mermaid Party I pulled out some of my trusty We R tools to help simplify things. My DIY Party Board, Scallop Goodie Bag Guide, Word Punch Board, and Happy Jig did the trick.

I started with the party hats, picking out some ombre paper from the DCWV Spring Bloom stack. Then I used the DIY Party Board to make the hats.

I downloaded a free mermaid tail template online, and cut out the tails from some gold foil paper. Then I added them to the top of the hats with some dimensional adhesive dots.

Next I made the favor bags using the Scallop Goodie Bag Guide and some ombre papers from the Oh Goodie collection.

I created wire mermaids with the Happy Jig and some gold wire to embellish them.

I added a couple of die cut tropical leaves, and a sentiment I made with the Word Punch Board. I backed the word with some plain white cardstock to make the letters pop. I cut a banner shape in the end of the strip with the Washi Chomper and then stapled it to the bag with my Staple Board.

You can fill these favor bags with gummy fish, goldfish crackers, small toys, bubbles, or whatever else you’d like to give your mermaid party guests.

Baby Shower Decor

Happy Friday We R fans! Aly Dosdall here again to share some baby themed decor that I made with a few of my favorite new tools. This simple banner and cake topper set would be perfect for a baby birthday party, a baby shower, or any other baby themed event. You could also change out the words to fit any celebration or event you’re hosting. Check out what I made with my Happy Jig, Tag Punch Board, and a few other handy tools!

Baby Shower Decor by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Happy Jig and the Tag Punch Board

The pretty pastel papers I used for the tag banner are from the new DCWV Inc Okey Dokey and Journaling Stacks which you can find at JoAnn stores.

Baby Shower Decor by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Happy Jig, the Square Punch Board, the Staple Board and the Tag Punch Board

Let’s start with making the tag banner! First I made my letters with the Happy Jig tool and the gold wire that comes with the kit. You can find instructions for making all the capital letters of the alphabet (plus dozens of other cool designs) on our dedicated Instagram feed here: @werhappyjig.

After I made the letters, I measured their size to determine how large to cut my DIY tags. I used my Square Punch Board to punch out five 2 3/4 x 4 inch rectangles. If you haven’t gotten a Square Punch Board I highly recommend it. I use it all the time for punching out bulk rectangles and squares for all kinds of paper craft projects!

Then I created the tags with my Tag Punch Board, layering a 7/8 inch paper over them that I cut off of the top of a same size tag made with some coordinating paper.

Once I finished making all my letters and tags, I stapled them together with small staples using the Staple Board. I finished off my banner by adding some pink Stitch Happy Twine to the tops of the tags, and then taping them to a length of twine for hanging.

After finishing the banner, I made the word “baby” with my Happy Jig for a cake topper. I copied the letters from other words on the Instagram feed and in the included instruction booklet to get “baby”. You can totally create your own words by using the letters from other word designs and linking them together. It’s fun to play around and experiment with making your own words.

Baby Shower Decor by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Happy Jig

Here’s a close up shot of which pegs you’ll need to make the word “baby” and where you need to place them.

We R Memory Keepers Happy Jig: Baby

I left a few extra inches on both ends of the word so I could attach it to my bamboo skewers before adding it to the cake. I twisted the excess wire around the skewers, but you could tie yours with twine, use a bit of hot glue, or some mini glue dots.

Baby Shower Decor by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Happy Jig

I love how the wire designs add some unique texture and a fun flare to my baby shower decor. I can tell I’m going to get a ton of use out of my Happy Jig!

Halloween Journal with the Typecast

Hello everybody! Soraya here to share with you a special journal made like a minibook about Halloween and the Spooky Party we threw last year with my kiddos and all their friends! This journal is above all made of photos and decorations, but there is also some journaling that I wrote with the Typecast, the fantastic typewriter by We R Memory Keepers!

Halloween Typecast Journal by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

The journal itself is one of the Typecast notebooks you can find in the same collection, and they are amazing! They’re made of patterned papers, pockets, insert pages and white pages! I decorated the cover with thickers and diecuts from Pebbles! And for a spooky effect, I added some eyes in the O letters.

Halloween Typecast Journal by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

The Typecast is perfect for writing  journaling, adding titles and details. I love how the type is retro and authentic, it gives a very particular style to our wrtiting.

To complete this insert page, I added little elements like this cute butterfly that I attached thanks to the Staple Board.

Did you know that you could also use the Typecast to type on vellum? This is so fun and cool! I used a vellum with a foiled spider web design. This way, the patterned vellum is also decorating the journal!

Handmade Cards with the Supreme Ruler

Hi everybody! Soraya here today to show you a couple of cards I made with the Supreme Ruler, the Stitch Happy sewing machine, the 2 Edge Punch, and the Staple Board! Let’s go!

Handmade cards with the Supreme Ruler by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

To make these colorful cards, I selected 8 patterned papers that I trimmed with the Supreme Ruler in order to get 8 large stripes. Then I used a 2 Edge Punch to create the floral edges that I placed on a white cardstock with double sided tape.

Monthly Planner Dashboard

Hello, We R readers, Laura here! Today, I have a fun monthly planner dashboard to share with you. I am a little planner obsessed. I have had a lot of planners over the years in many different styles. When I heard about the Planner Punch Board coming out, I was super excited! It is so convenient to have one tool to punch pages for all my different planners.

Monthly Planner Dashboard by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I have a Heidi Swapp memory planner that I use for recording daily gratitudes and little memories from our day. My main planner is a workhorse and doesn’t leave much room for any memory keeping, so it has been fun to add to this separate one. The colors are fairly neutral, so I like to add pops of color into my planner when I can.


I started by using a pretty pink patterned paper from the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams paper pad. I cut it to fit in my planner. Then, I used the planner punch board to punch the perfect holes on my page. My exact Heidi Swapp planner was not listed in the instructions. But the holes for the small size were the same. So instead of lining my paper up at the guide, I centered my paper on the punch board. I love how versatile this punch board is.

Planner Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

I found a pretty yellow floral paper in the small paper pad. I cut the paper to size and used my mini alphabet punch board to spell out the word “May”. To create the letter M you actually attach two letter N’s together with adhesive.

Alphabet Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

I attached the letters to the background page using my staple board. I used the large staples. The staple board has a magnetic guide which allows you to staple anywhere on your page.

Staple Board by We R Memory Keepers

Then, I found a little calendar page in the small paper pad. I cut out the May calendar and attached it to my dashboard with the medium size pink staples.

To add a little something extra to it, I added some gold Thickers with the numbers 05 for the month of May.
