Latest & Greatest: Cool Tools with We R Memory Keepers

Hey everyone! Roree here with today’s Make It! Monday post.

Our next show is this week in Marlborough, MA on September 8th-9th. Stamp & Scrapbook Expo will be teaching three “Latest & Greatest” workshops at this show: Card Making, Cool Tools, and Stamping. Today I am going to be creating with a new product from our Latest & Greatest: Cool Tools class: We R Memory KeepersDial Trimmer.

This is a fun little tool that is very easy to use. It has six different blade options which can be used with a twist of the dial.


With it, I created this tear-strip card:


First, I cut some white cardstock to 4 1/4 x 10 1/2″ and scored it on the 1 1/2″ and 7″ marks.

This left a 1/2″ gap between the ends.


Then, I decorated the inside of the card using items from the Simple StoriesPosh collection.

I used the Perforate blade on the Dial Trimmer and added perforated lines to a 1″ wide strip of patterned paper spacing them 1/2″ apart.

I centered and adhered the strip over the gap on the front of the card, trimmed the excess paper, and punched a hole on the right end of the perforated strip.

I decorated the card front with some patterned paper, stickers, washi tape, and baker’s twine.


To open the card, you just tear the strip to reveal the sentiment inside.


Such a fun card to make! I can imagine making so many more fun projects with the fabulous tool.

I hope you enjoyed today’s Make It! Monday project. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Latest & Greatest: Card Making with We R Memory Keepers


Hey everyone! Roree here with today’s Make It! Monday post.

Our next show is this week in Edison, NJ on August 11th-12th. Stamp & Scrapbook Expo will be teaching three “Latest & Greatest” workshops at this show: Card Making, Cool Tools, and Stamping. We have lots of great products from some awesome manufacturers in these classes, and today I am going to be working with products from our Card Making workshop: We R Memory KeepersRolling Penny Card Die Set.

This is such a fun die set and you can make some really awesome interactive cards with it. With it, I created this card:


I wanted to create a fun little scene, so I cut some extra shapes using my Cricut Explore® machine and Cricut Design Space™. I cut a frame from the “The First Few Years” cartridge and the dog in a plane from the “Just a Note” cartridge.

I cut out a slider shape on a panel of cardstock using the straight slider die from the set. I then decorated the panel with a frame and cloud die cuts.


I flipped the panel over placing the dog in a plane die cut underneath. I added foam adhesive to the body of the plane and two pennies on each foam square.


(I decided to use two pennies because the die cut was so long.)

After placing more foam adhesive behind the die cut panel, I attached another solid panel in the same color to the back.


I then placed a sentiment sticker on the bottom panel between the top and bottom edges of the slider die cut at the back of the plane.


I added the image to a card. The image slides from the left to the right to reveal my message.


The possibilities for these rolling penny cards are endless!

This Latest & Greatest: Stamping workshop featuring We R Memory Keepers’ Rolling Penny Card Dies will also be taught at our upcoming show in Schaumburg. We would love to see you there!

I hope you enjoyed today’s Make It! Monday project. Thanks so much for stopping by!

To create these cards I used the Penny Roller Card die set from We R Memory Keepers and products from the Summer Bucket list collection from PhotoPlay. I wish you could all come play with these cards. It’s so fun to watch the flower roll up and down on this card.The second card I created has the cute pinwheel that rolls across the top of the card. I think a sunshine die cut would be adorable on this card. But that pinwheel is pretty cute too! These cards are SO easy to make with the Rolling Penny Die set. When using that die set, all you need is some patterned paper, foam adhesive dots, and one penny!This Latest & Greatest: Card Making  workshop featuring the We R Memory Keepers die set will also be taught at our upcoming show in Schaumburg.

How to Use the Fringe and Score Board

How to Use the Fringe and Score Board by Becki Adams for @scrapbookexpo #SSBE17 #scrapbooking #papercrafting #WeRMemorykeepers

Hey everybody welcome to another edition of Inspiration Station with Becki Adams. Today I have a unique technique to share with you using the Fringe and Score board from We R Memory Keepers. This fun tool makes this paper weaving technique a breeze. With this tool, you can score or cut 4 lines with one swipe of the blade. How cool is that? To create the woven background on this layout, I simply cut slits into the teal patterned paper with the Fringe and Score board. Then I used the Fringe and Score board to cut strips of 1/2″ patterned paper. The weaving technique is easy. You simply weave patterned paper in and out of the base strips. This technique is so fun! I remember doing this technique in grade school with strips of construction paper. Now, I have a fun tool to play with so I can use the same technique in my paper crafting and scrapbooking projects. The patterned paper and embellishments on this layout are from the Little By Little collection from Shimelle and American Crafts. Because this is a layout about my son and his grade school field trip, I thought the bright colors and fun paper weaving technique worked perfectly on this project. While the bold woven background is the main embellishment focus on this layout, I wanted to spread color in across the layout to the bottom right corner. I was able to add a few sprinkles of color with some confetti. I used the confetti punch from We R Memory Keepers to punch a few sprinkles of confetti from scraps of patterned paper laying on my desk. Using a strong liquid adhesive is important when adhering confetti. I love how having a few tools on my desk can make creating scrapbooking layouts so fun. This technique is so easy, I hope you’ll try this paper weaving technique too. Thank you for stopping by the Weekly Scrapper blog. I’ll see you again soon!

Latest & Greatest: Card Making with Fancy Pants Designs


Hey everyone! Roree here with today’s Make It! Monday post.

Our next show is in Orlando, FL on May 5th-6th! Stamp & Scrapbook Expo will be teaching three “Latest & Greatest” workshops at this show: Card Making, Cool Tools, and Stamping. We have lots of great products from some awesome manufacturers in these classes, and today I am going to be working with a products from our Card Making workshop: Fancy Pants DesignsJoy Parade collection.

In class, each student will receive a Joy Parade sampler pack which includes: a 6×6 Paper Pad, Design Puffy Stickers, and Tags & Labels pack.


Using those items, I created this card:


A lot of layering went into this card and the step-by-step is pretty self-explanatory. But I do want to share how I created the tab.


I started with a 1 1/2 x 3″ strip of patterned paper from the 6×6 Paper Pad and the We R Memory KeepersTab Punch Board. (This is a tool from the Latest & Greatest: Cool Tools workshop.)


I folded the paper in half and inserted it under the Side Tabs punch.


I punched one end, then I flipped the paper over punched the other end on the small tab setting.


This is such a quick and easy way to add tabs to any project!

I layered patterned papers from the 6×6 Paper Pad, two tags and two labels from the Tags & Labels pack, decorated the tab with heart sticker from the Design Puffy Stickers pack, and added ribbon, baker’s twine, and a couple of foam Thickers to finish my sentiment.


I just love this paper collection. It is so bright and fun, and it is perfect for projects celebrating any happy occasion!

This Card Making workshop featuring Fancy Pants Designs’ Joy Parade collection will also be taught at our show in Puyallup WA. We hope you can come join us at one of these shows. We would love to see you there!

I hope you enjoyed today’s Make It! Monday project. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Latest & Greatest: Cool Tools with We R Memory Keepers


Hey everyone! Roree here with today’s Make It! Monday post.

Our next show is in Grapevine, Texas on March 31st – April 1st! Stamp & Scrapbook Expo will be teaching three “Latest & Greatest” workshops at this show: Card Making, Cool Tools, and Stamping. We have lots of great products from some awesome manufacturers in these classes, and today I am going to be working with one from our Cool Tools workshop: We R Memory KeepersTab Punch Board.

We R Memory Keepers is the one of my go-to companies for craft tools (along with their other amazing products) and the Tab Punch Board is no exception. It is easy to use and perfect for so many types of projects. You can learn more about it HERE.

I used my Tab Punch Board to create this mini album:


First, I started with the Tab Punch board and some white cardstock.


I wanted the my mini album to be 4 x 6″ (excluding the tabs) so I cut each piece of cardstock to 6 x 9 1/2″ and scored each panel in the center.


I placed the Tab Alignment Bar in the Side Tabs position and punched the corner of my cardstock panel.

I then removed the Tab Alignment Bar, flipped the cardstock panel over, lined up the punched tab with the tab size I was creating (medium), and punched the other end.


I placed the cardstock under the Cutting Track and trimmed off the excess cardstock with the Cutter to create my tab.


To create my center tabs, I lined up the edge of the cardstock in the 6″ medium tab position (the length of my page and the size of my tab) and punched the cardstock. I flipped the paper over and repeated this step for the other side.


Then, I trimmed off the excess with the Cutter and Cutting Track.

I created two panels with side tabs on both ends that were diagonal from each other and one panel with center tabs on both sides.


I layered the panels together and punched holes along the scored lines with my Crop-A-Dile.


Then I decorated my mini album. I chose papers and stickers from Bella Blvd‘s Addison and Alex collections, a chipboard sentiment from Pink Paislee‘s Take Me Away Wild Heart Thickers pack, and some ribbon to bind it all together.


And here is a tip for decorating your tabs: I used border stickers cut into smaller strips, attached them to the tabs, then used the punch on the Tab Punch Board to trim off the excess sticker. So quick and easy!


This Cool Tools workshop featuring We R Memory Keeper’s Tab Punch Board will also be taught at our shows in Anaheim CA, Milwaukee WI, Orlando FL, and Puyallup WA. We hope you can come join us at one of these shows. We would love to see you there!

I hope you enjoyed today’s Make It! Monday project. Thanks so much for stopping by!
