Latest & Greatest Cool Tools with We R Memory Keepers

Latest & Greatest Cool Tools with We R Memory Keepers by Becki Adams for @scrapbookexpo #ssbe2018 #ssbeblog #wermemorykeepers #happyjig

Happy Thursday my friends, Becki here! I’m thrilled to be here for Latest & Greatest Cool Tools with We R Memory Keepers. It’s finally time to dive into some summer crafts. When the Happy Jig landed on my doorstep, I fell in love with the cactus pattern. (The pattern for this cactus is in the instruction booklet that comes with the tool.) 

I thought this green wire cactus would be adorable on the front of a card with the Simple Stories Hello Summer collection. This collection is part of our Latest & Greatest Cardmaking workshop. 

After I created the cactus, I used a strong liquid adhesive (Therm O Web mixed media adhesive works great) to adhere the wire cactus to a piece of patterned paper. 

After waiting for the adhesive to dry completely, I fussy cut around the edges of the wire. The background of this card is simple patterned paper that I stitched together with my sewing machine. At the bottom of the cactus, I added the sentiment “hello summer” and some cute bright pink pom pom trim. 

Adding that cute green wire cactus makes this card unique and so cute! I have one more project that I create for We R Memory Keepers using the Happy Jig that I thought you’d like. 

I created this layout after our team visited Arizona for the Creativation show. I used the same technique on the card and the layout. Yes, I do love that cute cactus pattern. You can find more details about this project HERE.

Thank you for stopping by the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo blog for Latest & Greatest Cool Tools with We R Memory Keepers. The Happy Jig will be featured at upcoming shows in Duluth, Santa Clara, Schaumburg, and Edison. We would love to see you at one of these shows! Have a great week! I’ll be back next Thursday with another edition of Inspiration Station.

    Thanks for sharing the Happy Jig!! I love gadgets!! I assumed that the wired shapes were stapled on. Wouldn’t be a good look. Now I’m interested in the Happy Jig! I’ll be trying the Therm O Web adhesive.
