Journal in a Shape with the Typecast

Hello! It’s Eva Pizarro on the blog today showing you a fun way you can use your Typecast Typewriter and let the journaling be an important element of your layout.

Journal in a Shape with the Typecast typewriter

To make the big journaling star I drew the shape with my electronic cutting machine, you could do it by hand but this was much easier for me! Use a pencil to make marks were your photo or title will be and then begin typing on your Typecast Typewriter with gold ink.

journal-in-a-shape-by-eva-pizarro-2

I used this gorgeous constellation paper you can find in the Typecast 12 x 12 inch paper pad as my base.  It has rose gold foil details that I think are perfect with the gold ink journaling.

As a base for my photo I used journaling tags and basic cards from the same Typecast collection.

For all the other details I used embellishments from the Moonstruck collection by Pink Paislee. I added a cluster on the top left of my layout to balance that big star on the right.

With the Typecast Typewriter your journaling can become an embellishment and an important part of your layout. And the best part is that you can record all those feelings and stories in a fun and cute way! I hope you try this technique! It’s really easy and with the colored ribbons you have lots of possibilities!

Have a great week!

Typecast Gift Tags

Hello We R friends! It’s Aly here again today to share some easy gift tags I made with my Typecast Typewriter and some tags from the mint Typecast Paper Collection. I love how easy to is to add sentiments, journaling, or other text to my papercraft projects with the typewriter! I find myself using it all the time.

Typecast Gift Tags by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

To make these I started with some kraft and rose gold tags that are part of the collection. I added a strip of patterned paper and a strip of washi tape to each one.

Typecast Gift Tags by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

I added some ink splatters to give the kraft tags a little more visual interest, allowing the ink to dry completely before finishing the tags.

Then I added a focal accent to each tag that I trimmed from the paper pad that’s part of the mint collection. I used a postage stamp image, and I fussy cut a butterfly and some birds. I added a few copper staples with my Staple Board as decorative elements.

Adhering the focal accents to the tags with foam squares added some dimension and depth to them.

Finally, I typed “For You” directly onto some labels and mini tags from the Typecast paper collection, and then adhered them to the tags. It’s so easy to roll stickers, labels, and tags right through the typewriter. Love it!

I hope this project has inspired you to get out your Typecast for easy sentiments and journaling. Thanks for joining me today!

Mini File Folder Card

Hello, it’s Chantalle with you again today, back to share a card, which I wanted to be more than just a card, iykwim! A friend at work is leaving to explore pastures anew, and I really wanted to make her a special farewell card, which reminisced over times we have shared together.

Mini File Folder Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

This is definitely not a traditional card! The mini file folder design opens to reveal a number of Typecast Journaling Cards.

Mini File Folder Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

These cards have been customized to capture memories and uplift her with affirmative messages as she starts her new journey.

Mini File Folder Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I started out by gathering bits and pieces that I knew I wanted to work with – Wildflower and Moonstruck papers and embellishments, and some beautiful Typecast Journaling Cards and Tags. My Typecast Typewriter has been such a game changer for me! I used to do all my journaling on the computer, which was quite time consuming. This wonderful tool allows me to add the details that count to my project, so easily!

Mini File Folder Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

My Tab Punch Board came in very handy for creating a little folder, to hold the contents of my card. I’ve used a sheet of Pink Paisley’s Moonstruck (#5) for the outer cover. I love how the stargazer pattern ties in with the idea of her going off on new adventures.

* Click here for a short video which shows you how I created the mini folder with the Tab Punch Board.

hey-june_5

I have typed directly onto the Typecast Journaling Cards. Sometimes I don’t get the key placement quite right, but I also think sometimes one can get away with it, lol. A little extra bit of handmade charm!

hey-june_6

Once I had typed my messages onto the cards, I added some Wildflower Accent Stickers and some little butterflies, which I fussy cut from a sheet of Butterfly Garden. I LOVE this particular paper – one can get heaps of embellishments from just one sheet! Same goes for element pages, like Wildflower ‘Antiques’ – I find this type of paper really handy to stretch your supplies.

hey-june_7

The card was now ready to assemble!

hey-june_8

I added a personal touch in the form of a small letter ‘J’ which I punched out using my Mini Alphabet Punch Board. This sweet little tag shape is from a sheet of ‘Antiques’, which I mentioned above. Pop a little circle in the shape and you’d think it was from a pack of ephemera, and not a sheet of 12×12! The phrases are also from that paper.

Mini File Folder Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The rose gold in these Journaling Cards lend themselves so well to the pink and navy hues I’ve used.

Mini File Folder Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Each card slides open to reveal the next message…

Mini File Folder Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I’ve machine stitched a little tag onto this card to break up the similar sizes and shapes of the cards. It also makes a sort of title, which I quite like.

Mini File Folder Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Mini File Folder Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

On this one, I made a little spelling mistake. To disguise it, I retyped my message on to another identical card and then trimmed off the top half, for use on another project. I was actually quite happy with the way in which it sat on top of the original card – it allowed me to tuck a little floral sticker inside, which is pretty cute and adds interest.

Mini File Folder Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

As you can see, I used a brad to secure my journaling cards. I chose this method, as it would allow my cards movement without falling all over the place. To hide the brad pins at the back of the paper, I have trimmed off the excess with a small pair of pliers and then popped a sticker over the visible bits.

Mini File Folder Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

All of my well wishes have been placed inside a vellum Typecast Envelope and sealed with a sticker from a pack of Typecast Treat Bags.

Mini File Folder Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The front has been embellished with some more Wildflower Accent Stickers and a snippet from the sheet of Antiques (mentioned earlier).

Baby Shower Gift Idea

Hello it’s Chantalle with you today. I am very excited for not one, but two friends who are due to give birth in the next few months. These two women also happen to be sisters! One sister is keeping it a surprise, while the other sister has found out she will be having a little boy – Yay! For this sister, I have created a little keepsake album and card, ready for the big day, using my Frame Punch Board.

… along with a teensy birth record album she can use to jot down those all-important details and measurements!

Baby Shower Gift Idea by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Both of these projects were completed with the help of my Frame Punch Board. This is such a versatile tool – allowing you to create any size frame in a snap!

My little album is 3×4” size, so for my front and back covers, I’ve used a 3×4” piece of paper, cut from a sheet of Pink Paislee ‘Arrow Avenue’. I wanted the top half of the frame to have a thinner frame edge and the bottom part to be a bit thicker (like a polaroid frame) so I punched the top two guides using the alignment bars at 0.25 and then adjusted them to 0.75 for the bottom two guides. NOTE: Adjust the corresponding cut alignment bars to accommodate for the width of the frame edge.

Here is a short video I made a while ago showing the tool.

Baby Shower Gift Idea by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I adhered this frame onto the front of my album, along with some very cute embellishments from Crate’s ‘Little You’ collection.

Baby Shower Gift Idea by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The album is simply a 4×6 Waterfall Fuse Sleeve which I have sealed in the middle with my Fuse Tool to create two 3×4 pockets. TIP: If you use your Fuse regularly, I highly recommend adding a Fuse mat to your stash. I find it much nicer to use than on a regular cutting mat surface.

new-mum_6

The album opens to reveal a section where the new Mum can record her precious baby’s newborn details. (Being in a sleeve also makes it a bit more robust for the trip to the delivery room!)

 

Baby Shower Gift Idea by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I fed this little 3×4” card straight into my Typecast Typewriter so I could type the headings directly onto it.

new-mum_8

That little chipboard nappy pin is a fave! I wish I had added a few more bits from this collection to my stash actually – both the boy and girl versions are just adorable. I also really like how the typed font co-ordinates perfectly. TIP: Grab a matching colour Typecast ribbon so your projects coordinate even more beautifully!

Baby Shower Gift Idea by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

For the back cover of this little mini, I have started out the same way as the previous frame, but instead of punching four guides, I have only punched two, with the alignment bar on position ‘1’. I then trimmed the section between the punched guides and folded the area down, adhering this section on the underside with runner tape.

new-mum_10

Inside this space, I’ve placed an adorable little chipboard cloud sticker with a few other little details like enamel dots and machine stitching. I love that peekaboo effect!

Baby Shower Gift Idea by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

For Mum, I have a pull-out card inside a sleeve which works on the same principle as before.

Baby Shower Gift Idea by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The card is a 4×6 journalling element from the Confetti collection by Crate Paper, which I have folded in half.

 

Baby Shower Gift Idea by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

On the inside, I have attached a tag shape die cut with my Staple Board, another frame (which I created with the Frame Punch Board) and some other little details. ‘Twinkle Twinkle’ was typed up onto some little Typecast tags.

Baby Shower Gift Idea by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

new-mum_15

The card slides into it’s own decorative sleeve. This was created exactly the same as the back of the mini album above. I punched two guides instead of four and folded the bit inside before adhering. You can sew two pieces of 3×4’ card together to make the sleeve, or, as I have done here, make the piece of paper double the length and then simply fold in half before sewing. I prefer to sew sleeves shut if I can, as sometimes items inside get caught on sticky surfaces if the edges are sealed with double sided tape.

Baby Shower Gift Idea by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

As ever, these ideas could be tailored to suit a number of occasions.

Interactive Valentine’s Day Card

Hello it’s Chantalle. Thank you for visiting the blog today! If your heart is bursting with love for your Valentine, than I have the perfect ‘fully loaded’ idea for you! This special interactive card can hold lots and lots of love and comes in it’s own gift bag, thank to the Goodie Bag Guide Tool.

Valentine's Day Gift Pouch by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The treat bag was created using some beautiful teal ombre glassine paper. You can find this shade, along with a few others, inside a pack of Oh Goodie Glassine Papers. The outside of the bag has been simply embellished with some rub ons and a few bits of heart shaped Crush Ephemera. Those awesome big rubs ons are actually a part of the new Photo Lights range. They go on super smooth and have a great gloss finish.

Interactive Valentine's Day Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

This card is 7×5 inches. I wanted to it to be big enough to handle all the bits inside but not so big that it becomes overwhelming.

Interactive Valentine's Day Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Let’s take a closer look at how it came together…

Valentine's Day Gift Pouch by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I started out with a sheet of 12×12 Crush ‘XOXO’. I cut it down to 10×10 inches, folded it in half and then trimmed the length down a touch more until it felt ‘right’. (This ended up being 7 inches.)

I wanted to add lots of pockets to the inside of my card to be able to store love notes etc. A great way to do this was to create a few little mini folders using my Tab Punch Board. How gorgeous is that marble effect Bazzill cardstock! I machine stitched the edges shut and adhered them in a waterfall fashion to the inside of my card. I thought it would be fun to be able to see them peeping out from inside the card so I used my Goodie Bag Guide Tool to create a semi-circular shape…

 

… This part lifts up to reveal the little folders below.

Interactive Valentine's Day Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The first folder contains a love note, which I penned with the help of my Typecast Typewriter.

Interactive Valentine's Day Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

There is also a little tag, which I have jazzed up a bit with some ribbon, Crush Ephemera and Crush Accent Stickers.

Interactive Valentine's Day Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I’ve also created some coordinating bits and pieces to embellish the pockets.

Interactive Valentine's Day Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Create custom clips by hot glueing some ephemera onto an oversized paper clip or re-fashion some outdated epoxy clips by removing the sticker and replacing it with a cute button. Cut a pennant and adhere to a toothpick for a cute mini flag. These options are quick and very cost effective.

Interactive Valentine's Day Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

All this loaded goodness needs to be presented to your special someone in a cute envelope. I used my Scalloped Goodie Bag Guide Tool to shape the teal glassine paper and fold it around the card.

loaded-card_12

The gift bag was lovingly finished off with a butterfly seal, from the Typecast Wax Seal Kit.

Interactive Valentine's Day Card by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I wanted to make sure I got the shape perfect, so I practised on some wax paper first. The smell of the wax melting took me straight back to being a child and watching my Mother seal parcels for the mail. I remember her carefully sealing the knots she had made with string. The memory was unexpected and really wonderful.

I hope my little card has inspired you to try something a bit different for your Valentine this year!

Until next time, happy creating!

Valentine Cupcake Toppers

Hello, We R Memory Keeper fans, Laura here. The holidays are the perfect time to share a special little treat with the ones you love. Today, I am going to show you how to make these fun sweet Valentine cupcake toppers using the new Precision Press and the Typecast typewriter.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-1

I started with the butterfly stamp set. Line up the guide on the precision press. I aligned mine in the upper right corner. This way I could add my paper flush along the edges of the lower guide to do multiple stamp designs with ease.

I created multiples of the same design. I aligned a square of white cardstock in the corner. I started using the peach colored stamp pad with stamp number one.I repeated this process on several sheets of plain white cardstock.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-2

In between stamps, I wiped off the guide with a baby wipe and dried with a cloth. Then, I used the pink stamp pad with the second stamp.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-3

Again, I did all my butterflies with stamp two before moving on.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-4

Lastly, I used the navy stamp pad and stamp three to create the outline of the butterfly. Then, I allowed all the stamped images to dry. Once they were completely dry, I cut around the edges of each butterfly leaving a small white border around each one.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-5

I used more white cardstock and the Typecast typewriter to stamp the words “sweet valentine” on the cardstock. I love how the typewriter gives my toppers a vintage feel.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-6

I cut circles around the words to create a background for my butterfly stamped images. I also cut out circles from this beautiful pink and gold striped paper from the Typecast collection.

To assemble my cupcake toppers, I started by adhering the white typed circle to the pink and gold paper using my sticky thumb adhesive. Then, I added an adhesive foam square to the back of the butterfly to attach it to the circles.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-7

I used a strip of washi tape to attach my lollipop sticks to the back of the cupcake toppers.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-8

This is the perfect way to share a ‘sweet’ treat with your ‘sweet’ valentine, this Valentine’s Day.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-9

These would be really adorable to make for a class party. And you could even use them without the lollipop sticks as a fun gift tag.

Year in Review Layout with the Fuse

Hello everyone, Wendy here today to share one last look at our 2016.  When I began looking at the pictures that told the story of our year I was baffled at how to get everything in one layout.  Thanks to my Fuse, I was able to print varying sizes of pictures based on their importance and clearly portray our year to the fullest.

2016-year-in-review-by-wendy-antenucci

After printing my pictures in various sizes, I began working on this layout as if it was a puzzle.  Arranging things in the order they happened and so the sizes fit well in my spaces.  My next piece that I knew I wanted to include was the year punched from the Mini Alpha punch board.

2016-year-in-review-by-wendy-antenucci-2

After establishing the basics of the layout, I used the Fuseables collection to dress up the empty spaces and bring unity to my layout through color and images.  I love that I didn’t have to take my different elements out of their spots, but instead I was able to fuse the items right to the front of my page, adding dimension and making my job so much easier!

2016-year-in-review-by-wendy-antenucci-3

 

I had a lot of pictures of friendships we made this year that I wanted to include in the layout, but there wasn’t room for each individual picture.  Using the Fuse and the Instax waterfall photo sleeves, I was able to add in 5 additional pictures of friends that made a huge impact on our lives.

2016-year-in-review-by-wendy-antenucci-4

Design Tip:  Adding different layers to a layout adds interest to your page and makes it stand out more.  In my page, I have the pieces in the photo sleeves, then I have the embellishments on top of the page fused on, and to add one more layer I chose to pop up the bird and add in an element that could sum up our year.

2016-year-in-review-by-wendy-antenucci-5

Our year has been a whirlwind one, one full of change, but as a family we are thankful for all that we have experienced this year.  The friendships and adventures will always hold a dear spot in our hearts.  Thank you to We R Memory Keepers for a great year creating here with you all!

15 Days of Gratitude: Part 3

Hello, and Happy Thanksgiving to our U.S. friends! It’s Aly here with you today to share the last week of pages in my 15 Days of Gratitude journal. If you missed the first two parts of this three part series, you can check them out HERE and HERE. I enjoy this project so much, and am always glad for the chance to focus on the good things in life this time of year.

15-days-of-gratitude-by-aly-dosdall-1

 

Today, along with the completed pages, I wanted to share a few tips with you. First, I find it easier to gather all of the supplies that I plan to use for the entire journal and keep them in a basket or bag out on my work surface. That way when I have time to work on it I don’t have to go fishing around for my supplies.

15-days-of-gratitude-by-aly-dosdall-2

I also used a couple of paper pads from the Typecast Mint collection. Using coordinating paper pads made it easy since no matter what papers I chose, they worked nicely together. I also used a few packs of coordinating stickers, tags, and labels to use as accents and layers.

15-days-of-gratitude-by-aly-dosdall-3

I found a few rolls of washi tape that match my papers and kept those on hand, using some on each page. For this album I journaled with my Typecast typewriter and a Heidi Swapp date stamp.

15-days-of-gratitude-by-aly-dosdall-4

Another tip is that I always like to add some texture with different materials such as metal, fibers, or ribbon. For this project I pulled in some metal shaped paper clips and some jute twine.

15-days-of-gratitude-by-aly-dosdall-5

When designing my pages, I start by selecting at least three patterned papers that I can layer as a base. Then I add my photo or journaling card on top of the papers, and finish off with the bits and pieces like washi tape, paper clips, staples, and smaller stickers, labels and tags.

15-days-of-gratitude-by-aly-dosdall-6

I hope you’ve enjoyed this gratitude journal inspiration. This project is only one way to record your blessings this time of year, but you can do it many other ways as well. The important thing is to get your thoughts down, and to focus on your blessings and all the good things in your life.
