Simple Gift Wrapping with We R Memory Keepers

Hello everyone! I brought back some small gifts from my recent trip to send to friends. So my project for We R Memory Keepers Lifestyle Studio this month, I’m sharing a simple wrapping of the gift to my friend Cathy. I have been accumulating the cute embellishments from We R Memory Keepers for a while! Such as the green chevron washi tape shown in the photo below (I ended up not using it… hmmm… I need more colors!) You can find out more about their fabulous 2014 Summer Release on their video page here! Good stuff’s coming! I first die cut a tag (from Tag It Kit) and embossed it with the Bloom embossing folder. I just love the “reveal” of an embossed piece! Amazing details, right? All embossing folders are actually 20% off at the official We R website this week! I cut the embossed tag in two pieces and used […]

Playing with Pebbles Birthday Wishes Collection

Hello everyone! I had a crafty weekend and finally got around to play with the new release from Pebbles, the Birthday Wishes Collection!   As a design team member, I’ve had this happy collection in my stash for a little while. I’m so excited that we finally get to share our projects! I have a card, a tag and a technique to share today! Paper Pieced Birthday Card I love the two little stamps in this collection. They are just perfect for the paper piecing technique. I first die cut a window from my card base. I used Waffle Flower’s brand new Surface – Tag Die – Starter Kit. I used a ruler to help me place it straight on paper and then used a piece of washi tape to hold the die in place while running it through the diecut machine. I then used the Surface – Tag Die – Scallop Add-on […]

Playing with Custom Letterpress Printing Plates from Lifestyle Crafts

Hello everyone! Popping in to share some fun I’ve had playing with the custom letterpress printing plates from Lifestyle Crafts / We R Memory Keepers. I love all the pre-designed printing plates  by Lifestyle Crafts, but I’ve always wanted to have some of my own. I’ve also got to play with the new and improved L Letterpress Platform (which will be available in WRMK official online store tomorrow, April 10!). I love that we have a few inks and some cleaning cloths to get started without further investment! Unboxing L Letterpress Platform (Watch it below or in HD on YouTube) Since I’ve shared a few letterpressed projects before, I get questions like “How does it really work?” all the time. I think it is a little hard to explain unless you’ve seen it in action. So here is my video: Custom Letterpress Printing Plates in Action (Watch it below or in HD on […]

Bannerific – Quick & Easy Projects Using Banner It Kit

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I shared projects using It Kits from Lifestyle Crafts / We R Memory Keepers. I had some time this week and played with Banner It Kit! This banner die kit can help us create 8 unique banners that can be divided into 3 categories. 1. Two-step Banner Dies Cut with these two dies from two complimentary colors/patterns to create a cool dimensional look while the project remains flat! 2. Dimensional Banner Dies These three dies are designed to be folded into dimension! 3. Detailz Banner Dies These three dies work the same way as the other Detailz Dies, they emboss and die cut our paper at the same time! To help bring out the beautiful details, I used them as stencils to add ink to the die cuts. Remember to clean the dies with water or baby wipe after use. Now, let’s see […]

I hope that today’s project can bring a little sunshine to you if it is still cold there. Take Me to Spring Gift Bags Tips & Tricks Since the “legendary” Envelope Punch Board, We R Memory Keepers has expanded the punch board family to five. I used Gift Bag punch board for today’s project.
