De-clutter with the Typecast + Storyline

Taking photos of precious mementos or other sentimental items and preserving them in an easy Heidi Swapp Storyline album is a seriously genius idea! Add the memories and stories about the items with your Typecast, along with a photo, and then you can let them go and de-clutter your house, attic, or closet. Win-win!! More details HERE.

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.

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!

You can also write titles and details and decorate directly on the small diecuts. This is how I added “Trick or Treat” on the mini donuts.

To make this string background I used the Stitch Happy black thread and randomly glued it to the white paper with my hot glue gun.

Journal on your Scrapbook Page with the Typecast

Hello! It’s Eva Pizarro on the blog today showing you how to make your journaling the most important element of your layout using the Typecast Typewriter.

Typecast scrapbook page by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I have always loved to write lots of journaling on my layouts but, like many others, I don’t really like my handwriting! With the Typecast Typewriter my journaling is beautiful and it can be an important element of design.

To create my journal I placed my picture and some stickers on my cardstock, and gently drew the journaling shape I wanted with a pencil.

Typecast scrapbook page by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

 

I used my Typecast Typewriter with a black ribbon to type my journaling. I love that I can fit my 12×12 pages into the typewriter with pictures, stickers and everything!

Typecast scrapbook page by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

This is my journaling result. I really like the graphic look you can get with the  Typecast Typewriter.

Typecast scrapbook page by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I made a border with some washi tapes. We R Memory Keepers now has a new line of washi tape rolls with lovely designs and phrases!

Typecast scrapbook page by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

Because the main focus of my page is my journaling and my photo, I embellished with just a few stickers from the Heart of Home collection by Pebbles.  I adhered some of them with 3d dots to give my page some dimension.

Typecast scrapbook page by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

My black and white title was the perfect match to my black journaling. Did you knew We R Memory Keepers has colored ribbon for the Typecast as well?

Have you ever made the journaling an important element of your page? ! The Typecast Typewriter makes this task super easy! I created star shaped journaling on this layout too, be sure to check it out!

Halloween Card

Hello friends, and welcome to Typecast Week! Our designers have created some beautiful projects that highlight how versatile and convenient the Typecast typewriter is when adding details to cards, layouts, and other paper craft projects. First up is Laura with a festive Halloween card!

 

Good morning We R Memory Keepers friends. It is Laura here today with a layered card idea for you using the Typecast Typewriter and the Frame Punch Board.

Halloween Card with the Typecast and the Frame Punch Board by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I make a lot of handmade cards for friends. I love that I can make a cute outside for my card, but I have often struggled with how to put some type of sentiment on the inside of the card. I usually add a handwritten greeting, but sometimes I want the inside of the card to be more like the inside of a traditional store bought card. I have done this before with stamps, but I don’t always have the sentiment I want. The Typecast Typewriter makes this easy.

Halloween Card with the Typecast and the Frame Punch Board by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I started by creating a four inch by six inch card base out of Pebbles Trick or Treat cardstock. Then, using the Frame Punch Board, I punched out all four corners of the paper and trimmed the inside using the frame punch board.

Halloween Card with the Typecast and the Frame Punch Board by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I created three frames to go on the front of the frame. Each one was ½ inch smaller than the one before. I used the 6 x 6 inch Trick or Treat paper pad for all the papers.

Halloween Card with the Typecast and the Frame Punch Board by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I attached them to the front of the card using a mix of foam adhesive squares and regular double sided adhesive.

To create my sentiment on the inside I used the Typecast Typewriter. I used a sheet of gridded paper from the small 6 x 6 Trick or Treat paper pad. Then, I typed out a fun Halloween quote from Shakespeare’s Macbeth. It is the perfect saying for a Halloween card.

Halloween Card with the Typecast and the Frame Punch Board by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I added an adorable cupcake cardstock ephemera using foam adhesive squares. I also trimmed out a saying from the paper pad that said “Trick or Treat” and added it to the top of the innermost frame.

Halloween Card with the Typecast and the Frame Punch Board by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

The sentiment for the inside I trimmed to fit and used the corner rounder from the frame punch board to round the corners like I did on the card edges and frame edges. I attached it with double sided adhesive.

Halloween Card with the Typecast and the Frame Punch Board by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

The layered frames are so fun on this card. They add a lot of dimension without a lot of bulk.

And I am so pleased I finally have a way to create a special message or saying inside my cards that looks great!

Card Week: Bright and Beautiful Card Techniques

Hello WRMK fans and welcome back to the blog. It’s Chantalle with you today and I’d like to share some cards I have created with the help of clever WeR Punch Boards, LetterPress Kit and the fantastic new Dial Trimmer.

Handmade Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

This card uses beautiful Bazzill Premium Cardstock in Rose Quartz. The pack comes with four different prints, one being a soft ombré, which suited my card idea perfectly. It’s been layered up with some Amy Tangerine On a Whim #378746 Chipboard Stickers and some hand cut elements from On a Whim papers.

Handmade Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers
The cardstock has been de-bossed in a floral print with hot pink magenta pigment ink. I will admit to having a bit of a crush on this letterpress technique! This was my first time experimenting with Letterpress, which comes in a very handy Starter Kit and includes everything you need to get started. *Note:  You will need a tool like the Evolution Advanced to be able to create a de-bossed effect.

Right at the bottom of this pile of embellishments, are some pretty On a Whim Washi tapes. I love their tropical vibes! I’ve also used my new Washi Tape Chomper to create the perfect pennant shape. This clever little tool is so easy to use – simple measure the size tape you have, align the tape and then press to cut the shape.

Handmade Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Here is an image of the Letterpress just before it’s rolled through the Evolution Advanced. I adhered the plate to the base, then inked it up, aligned the paper and then rolled it through the Evolution.

Letterpress Kit and Evolution Advanced by We R Memory Keepers

This is a card I created using the same ‘Hello’ plate, combined with the word ‘sunshine’ (both included in the starter kit). I gave some Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock a light watercolour wash and then inked up the plates with yellow pigment ink and debossed it.

The sunny brights give this card a very happy vibe!

This next card is very simple in it’s composition.

Handmade Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I’ve used my Dial Trimmer to trim some thin strips of patterned paper, having fun with the different edge finishes!

I laid all the strips up, adhering them to the front of my card, then trimmed off the excess with my Supreme Ruler.

Dial Trimmer and Supreme Ruler by We R Memory Keepers

The beveled and scalloped edges have a relaxed feel to them and the strips co-ordinate nicely with the fun On a Whim Chipboard Stickers which I have used to add my greeting.

Handmade Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers
My final card turned out so fun and I’m really excited to share it with you!

It’s a self contained card and envelope in one, which has a perforated area which, when pulled back, reveals a greeting.

Dial Trimmer by We R Memory Keepers

To start, I used my Envelope Punch Board to create an envelope for a 4×6 landscape card. This punch board is a firm favourite of mine! Once I had measured and trimmed my paper, I went about creating the envelope, but didn’t seal it. Instead, I used my ruler to draw two lines, in the centre of the front of the card, about an inch and a half apart.

I then used the perforated blade on the Dial Trimmer over the lines I had drawn.

Envelope Punch Board, Dial Trimmer, and Supreme Ruler by We R Memory Keepers

Next I created the little postcard for inside the envelope. I typed up a message on my Typecast Typewriter  and embellished the striped paper with some On a Whim clear and chipboard stickers.

I placed the card, face-down onto the prepared envelope sheet and folded it up, adhering it shut.

The final step, was creating a little tab so the recipient would know to pull open the perforated area. I used my Tab Punch Board to create a ‘small’ side tab and then, used a blade to very carefully cut a small slit on the far right hand side of the perfed section. I slid the tab inside, making sure it was well adhered, so it wouldn’t come off when in use.

The moment of truth…. Success!

I’m so happy with how this card turned out – such a fun surprise card, thanks to my Dial Trimmer!

Mixed Media Traveler’s Notebook

Hey there We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here to share a mini album that I created using many of my favorite We R Memory Keepers tools. Recently, I wrote a blog post about my crafty travelers notebook. You can find more details about how I created the base of the travelers notebook HERE.
Stitch Happy Art Journal by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

Today, I thought it would be fun to show you a few of the pages that I created to go inside the notebook.

Stitch Happy Art Journal by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

Stitch Happy Art Journal by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

When I created the notebook I made it with enough pages so that I had one page for each city I was visiting. When I visited Chicago, I took SO many photos that I wasn’t able to fit all of the photos onto the two page spread. I used patterned paper that I cut with the dial trimmer as an extra page in the notebook. I love the scalloped edge that I was able to add to the patterned paper with the dial trimmer. To add the page into my notebook, I taped it in place with washi tape.

Dial Trimmer by We R Memory Keepers

On the white pages in the notebook, I did a little bit of mixed media with Heidi Swapp color shine and Vicki Boutin stamps. The stamped flowers made the perfect embellishments.

Stitch Happy Art Journal by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

As usual, I used my Typecast Typewriter to type the journaling for this spread. I love the look typed journaling and it’s so easy to type journaling with the Typecast Typewriter.

Stitch Happy Art Journal by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

By adding that one little patterned paper insert, I was able to add 3 extra photos and more journaling about my crafty adventures to Chicago. My We R Memory Keeper tools made creating (and altering) my travelers notebook so easy. Thank you for stopping by the We R Memory Keepers blog. I’ll see you again soon.

Dial Trimmer Coupon Card

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva here showing you a coupon card made with the new Dial Trimmer and the Photo Sleeve Fuse Tool.

Dial Trimmer Coupon Card by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

The new Dial Trimmer has 6 different tools in one but one I love the most is the Perforate Tool, I used this feature to create a coupon card for a teen girl made with the Girl Squad collection by our friends from Pebbles Inc.

To decorate the front of my card I cut several 6 x 6 papers with the Wave Tool from my Dial Trimmer and glued them to the front of the card.

Next I used my Sprinkle Punch and decorated the inside of the card with matching colors and a shaker pocket created with a plastic sleeve and a FUSEables card base.

I marked my paper with 2.5 inch squares and typed my “coupons” with my Typecast Typewriter.  Because the paper is going to be folded like an accordion, I typed front and back left a space in the middle.

Typecast Typewriter by We R Memory Keepers

Using the Dial Trimmer with the Perforate Blade, create a perforated line every 2.5 inches.  Embellish the blank squares with paper and fold like an accordion.

To finish the front of the card use Stickers and Die Cuts from the same Girl Squad Collection.

The coupons are glued inside the card and everything is held together with some twine.

This was a Teen Girl card but you could modify this card for many occasions! The receiver just needs to slightly pull the paper and the coupon will tear off perfectly! Isn’t it cool!

I love to receive (and give) interactive cards, they are so much fun! Did you already think of someone to give a coupon card to?

Throwback Thursday: Typecast Gratitude Journal

Pre-bound notebooks are a great way to journal thoughts, emotions, moments, and memories of all kinds. The Typecast Mint Paper Collection includes some bound notebooks with darling pockets and inserts, perfect for recording your life. Last fall, designer Aly Dosdall shared a gratitude journal she made with the Typecast notebook, tags, mini cards, and paper pad, along with her Typecast Typewriter. Check out her post below!

I love these Typecast Pocket Notebooks–they’re perfect for art journals, memory keeping, mini albums, and smash-style journals.

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

I added my Instax mini photos and some papers, journaling cards, tags, and labels from the Typecast Mint paper collection.

15-days-of-by-aly-dosdall_day-1

I kept the dimension on my pages to a minimum so that my journal will close and not be too bulky.

15-days-of-by-aly-dosdall_day-2

I stamped the date for each day with a Heidi Swapp roller stamp, and I typed my journaling on the Typecast cards and papers.

Some of the notebook pages have pockets with inserts where I journaled about the one thing I chose to be grateful for each day.

I used some washi tape from the Scotty Dog dispenser, and some shaped paper clips from the Oh Goodie collection.

15-days-of-by-aly-dosdall_day-5

I also included a few rub-ons from the new Photo Lights collection. I’m usually not a fan of rub-ons because they can be hard to work with, but these rub-ons went on so smoothly and easily.

Cinch Quote Journal

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here today with a quote journal project. I don’t know about you, but I love quotes. I have a pin board dedicated to some of my favorites. Well, it was high time to take those words off the screen and turn them into a beautiful mini journal. My We R Memory Keepers Cinch and Typecast helped create a lovely quote journal that I will enjoy looking through when I need some inspiration and encouragement.

Quote Journal by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

The plan was to create a 6×6 journal. I started by punching Cinch Bookboard for the front and back covers. The Cinch easily punched through the thick board. The Cinch is also easy to use, as the punching information is printed directly on the machine. Making a 6 inch book? Pull pin 12. Incredibly simple!

The Cinch by We R Memory Keepers

Each of the pages inside the book started as a watercolor paper base. On some of the pages, I wanted to experiment with different mediums, which is why I chose something other than card stock. So not only was this a journal for my favorite quotes, but a chance to play with papers, mediums, and colors that spoke to me.

The Cinch by We R Memory Keepers

Now my pages were ready to be decorated, before assembling the journal with the Cinch wires.

When you do assemble your book, be sure and place the pages on the ring first, topped with the front cover and then the back cover. Doing this allows the wire edge to be hidden inside the book. Once again, the instructions are on the machine for closing the wires.

Typecast typewriter by We R Memory Keepers

Using the Typecast was a fun way to write out my favorite quotes. For this quote, I typed a few of the words on Typecast Paper, knowing that I would use stickers to spell out words I wanted accented. I found that advancing the paper twice created a nice amount of space between these words. I cut these lines of words out with scissors.

Typecast typewriter by We R Memory Keepers

For some of my quotes,  I typed them out in their entirety on Typecast Tags. It is easy to place any size paper in the Typecast, even up to 12×12” paper.

Quote Journal by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

For the base of this page, I applied Heidi Swapp gold screen print paint through a screen. The tags are from the Typecast Mint paper pad.

Quote Journal by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

The quote on this page was typed onto a tag. I layered it with stickers, other Typecast papers, and a large word sticker.

Quote Journal by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

This page was layered with a piece of patterned paper from Jen Hadfield’s Heart of Home 6×6 paper pad. The gold printing fit into my color scheme perfectly. Once again, the quote was typed onto a Typecast paper pad tag.

Quote Journal by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

More patterned papers, die cut accents, and a quote typed onto a paper pad tag. I love how easily this album worked together with all the tags in the paper pad. So many typing options!

Quote Journal by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

My final page mixed typed words with letter and word stickers. This might be my favorite page! I have to keep this mix of wording in mind for layouts and even a card!

What are your favorite quotes? How do you like to display them?

Travel Art Journal

 Hey there We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here, to share a fun travel art journal that I created with the Stitch Happy sewing machine (with grey twine), the Supreme Ruler, and the Tab Punch Board.

Stitch Happy Art Journal by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

This Summer/Fall is full of crafty adventures for me. I’m SO excited and determined to document all of my adventures along the way. I decided to create a small travelers note book/art journal.

Supreme Ruler by We R Memory Keepers

I started by using the Supreme Ruler to cut down the gigantic watercolor paper that I picked up at my local craft store. I wanted a heavy good quality watercolor paper because I planned on using ink, paint, and watercolors within the journal. I cut the paper down to 8 1/2 x 8 1/2. I cut one piece of patterned paper to 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 for the cover of the journal. Then I used the Supreme Ruler again to draw a straight line down the center of the journal so I could stitch down the center of the paper.

Stitch Happy sewing machine by We R Memory Keepers

The Stitch Happy sewing machine stitched through the heavy watercolor paper like a champ! After stitching through the stack of paper I folded the journal in half to create a book. Inside the journal, I went a little crazy with paints, watercolor, and Heidi Swapp color shine.

For each section of the journal, I created a tab using the Tab Punch Board. Each tab is embellished with a cute little puffy heart sticker.

Stitch Happy Art Journal by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

On the first page of the journal, I created a frame with the Frame Punch Board. Inside that frame, I typed all of the cities I will visit on my crafty adventures.

On the first full spread in the journal I added a few photos from my adventure on top of the Heidi Swapp color shine background.

I can’t wait until my little crafty adventure journal is clear full! It was so fun and so easy to create using many of my favorite We R Memory Keepers tools. Thank you for stopping by the We R Memory Keepers blog. I’ll see you again soon!
