We R Memory Keepers Punch Boards - Envelope


Today we have a final example of We R Memory Keepers' Punch Boards using the Envelope Punch Board. This is WRMK's first punch board and DT Member Lauren's favorite. Being able to create envelopes for almost any size is such an awesome tool!
 
For this small envelope, Lauren cut out a 5 x 5" piece of paper using Lawn Fawn's Peace Joy Love paper pad. She stamped the sentiment and hearts using Memento inks from Lawn Fawn's Science of Love stamp set. The hearts are attached using pop dots and then tied the envelope close using black baker's twine and some red May Arts Ribbon. A perfect Valentine's Day gift!
 
We hope you enjoyed seeing some ideas this week on how to use your WRMK's punch boards. Come to Stamp Fever to order yours!

We R Memory Keepers Punch Boards - Pillow Box

 
Today we have TWO examples of how you can use the We R Memory Keepers' Pillow Box Punch Board. First would be a perfect gift card holder or small gift box for Christmas. Lauren used kraft paper by Neenah to create this pillow box and decorated it with ribbon from May Arts and a tag she created. The tag is using Lady Bug Memento ink on a white Neenah paper using a stamp from the Merry Christmas set by Hero Arts + BasicGrey. She tied the tag on using some embroidering floss and added three pears. Santa's beard is also outlined using a shimmer pen.


This second pillow box shows how you can make all kinds of lengths using your Pillow Box Punch Board. The box was punched out of purple patterend paper and Lauren created a cute tag that is tied around the pillow box using purple baker's twine. The small tag is decorated with stamps from Paper Smooches Needle Little Love with the flowers and leaves colored in with alcohol ink markers.
 
Aren't these pillow boxes just the cutest?! Come to Stamp Fever today to order yours!

We R Memory Keepers' Punch Boards are so handy for birthdays and holidays to create custom envelopes and packaging.

She cut out her initial patterned paper to create the box at 7 x 7" using Lawn Fawn's Into The Woods Collection. Then decorated the box using orange baker's twine and stamped the Thank You sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Sophie's Sentiments on a small tag. The enamel dots are by Freckled Fawn.

Katie's Favorite Products

Happy Monday, crafters! We hope you had a great holiday weekend and are ready to finish up those Christmas gifts and decorations. If you're looking for some gift ideas to give to fellow crafters, we have a great feature for today's blog post. DT Member Katie has listed some of her favorite crafty products to use that would make great gifts!
 
 
T Ruler - I use mine for everything! It keeps everything straight plus it has a ruller and most are less than $3! A great stocking stuffer.
 
 
Martha Stewart Score Board - The large one is only $20 and there is also a mini board for $10 for those on a budget. The perfect tool for scoring cards and making so many other neat paper crafts.
 

Hero Arts Layering Paper - I use these for everything. The come in a huge assortment of colors and are only $3 for 10 sheets. That's 20 cards for only $3! They are a nice weight and very sturdy. Plus, one side of the card stock is white. They even have black! I buy a bunch at a time, cut and fold them so they are ready at my desk for quick card making.
 
 
American Crafts Knock Out Border Punches - These are great stocking stuffers! They now have a holiday board punch, too! They are small and compact. The carrying case you can purchase with a set holds 6 different designs.
 
 
American Crafts Glitter Tape - These tapes come in a package of 24 colors and are super easy to use. Just peal and stick to add a quick, sparkly texture to projects.
 
 
Lawn Fawn Acrylic Blocks - These are nice and thick with curved edges to make them easy to hold (which keeps me from dropping my inked image in the wrong place). They have a long one that is perfect for long sentiments, too!
 
 
Crop Hopper Tote Bag - Something every craft needs when they take classes... A tote bag to keep your tools organized when you're crafting away from home!
 
We hope you enjoyed Katie's suggestions! Let us know if you have any other favorite items that would make great Christmas gifts in the comments below.

Basic Grey Season's Greetings Snowflake Card

Today we have DT Member Lauren's final card using Basic Grey's Merry Christmas stamp set (with Hero Arts) and Basic Grey's 25th and Pine 6x6" paper pad. This card is themed more for winter and uses the snowflake patterned paper form the set.


Lauren started with a kraft (by Neenah) card base and added some patterned paper from the 25th and Pine paper set. She foled up a doily and also added some blue card stock that was punched using a scalloped border punch by EK Success. Lauren added a little touch of silver using a Silver Gelly Roll pen. The "Seasons Greetings" ornament stamp from the Merry Christmas set was stamped in blue on whilte (by Nennah) and she glued a small ribbon using Lawn Fawn's Silver Lawn Trimmings.
 
 
Before using a 3D Foam Square to attach the ornament, she added a pice of glitter tape (by American crafts). She also cut out one of the snowflakes from the paper and glued it behind the doily, just so it peeked out a bit. There are three rhinestones to add some more "bling" to this festive card.
 
We hope you enjoyed Lauren's cards! She, along with all of our design team members, will be at the store on Saturday for our Holiday Open House with a make 'n take. Make sure to come by and say hi... And do a little shopping! :)

We're back today with more Christmas inspiration for you by DT Member Lauren. She created this Christmas Tree card using Basic Grey's Merry Christmas stamp set (with Hero Arts) and Basic Grey's 25th and Pine 6x6" paper pad.
 
 
 
The card base is kraft by Neenah and she stamped the Christmas tree in green ink on white paper also by Neenah. The patterned paper is from Basic Grey's 25th and Pine. While the tree is from the Merry Christmas set by Basic Grey and Hero Arts, the "Be Merry" sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's stamp set Peace Joy Love and stamped in red chalk ink.
 
 
Lauren crated the stitching look using a Silver Gelly Roll pen. Lauren likes to add a little "bling" to her cards and she used gold glitter on the tree and gold glitter tape by American Crafts. Finally, a little green seam binding ribbon to give the card some texture and dimension.
 
Come back to the blog on Thursday to see Lauren's final card using the Basic Grey products!
