Halloween Treat Bag Projects

It’s time to get ready for Halloween, Everybody knows the best thing about Halloween is the treats! At least that’s what my kids tell me. So today, I thought it would be fun to make a few quick and easy Halloween treat bag projects.

Silhouette 3D Open-Sided Halloween Favor Box

For me, the first thing I did was get my Silhouette CAMEO (have you seen the new Pink CAMEO 3?) out and searched through their Silhouette Studio until I found these cute Ghost boxes. They are called 3D Open sided Halloween Favor Box.

I cut them out out at 11″ tall, which allowed me to cut two boxes from one 12″ x 12″ sheet of patterned cardstock. The banner spells “Boo”, but instead of O’s, I substituted googly eyes. I think that modification turned out great

Introducing Stitch Happy by We R Memory Keepers

Note: even before introducing Stitch Happy on our blog, we pre-sold hundreds of the machines. These things are flying off the shelves, so get one ASAP, while they are still available.

Have you had a chance to check out the new Stitch Happy sewing system? It’s the latest innovation from We R Memory Keepers. This fun new invention is a multi media machine, which means that it’s made to sew a variety of materials such as paper, chipboard, mixed media, and more.

If you would like to sew paper projects, then this is the machine for you. The problem with cardstock is that it dulls regular needles, which is why you don’t want to use a regular sewing machine with paper. Stitch Happy uses needles intended for this very purpose. It even offers a large needle for heavier threads like baker’s twine.

Another great thing about Stitch Happy is that you can use it with tough materials, like leather. Continue reading “Introducing Stitch Happy by We R Memory Keepers” »

This is the new Ultimate Machine and Scrapbooking Tote by CGull

CGull just released the new Ultimate Machine & Scrapbooking Tote and there are two options to choose from:

We also have Ultimate Tote & CAMEO 3 bundles available, so be sure to check those out if you need a new machine.

Many customers are wondering what the differences are when you compare it to existing craft bags. We decided to compare it to one of our favorites, so here it is: We R Memory Keepers 360 Crafter’s Bag vs CGull Ultimate Machine Tote.

Both of these companies are very good at what they do. We R Memory Keepers offers a number of popular products for all types of crafts. Although CGull has a variety of products, including their new Mini Die-Cutter/Embosser, they are mostly known for making great craft totes.

Valentine Craft Projects for Kids

by Richelle Naegle

With Valentine’s Day coming up next week, I thought it would be fun to make a few crafts for the occasion. The idea here is these would be great Valentine craft projects for kids. These designs are easy enough that most any kid will be able to participate in meaningful ways, and in some cases, do it all themselves.

valentine pom pom craft project

The first project was completed using the Pom Pom Maker by We R Memory Keepers. Though intended to be used as a tool for making party decor, I re-purposed it to make cute little creatures. To make these guys, I used the medium Pom Pom Maker, red yarn, a couple googly eyes, red pipe cleaners, and then I cut out hearts using my Cricut Explore Air 2. These are super easy crafts and the beauty of it is you can modify my design with simple nick nacks you may find around the house for your own personalized substitutions.

valentine project - crayon holdersFor the second project I made, I used the draw feature on the Cricut Explore. The images were made with the original Create A Critter Cricut cartridge. The right machine will make your Valentine projects quick and easy. I love these crayon holders because it’s a cheap, easy, and unique solution for your kids to give out Valentines to their friends (and heaven forbid, their sweethearts).

These designs measure 4.5″ x 7″ so I could fit two on a regular 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of paper. Also, check out the Create a Critter 2 cartridge is for even more options. There are so many different images to choose from and all of them will look great for this sort of project.

The last project I made using the We R PhotoLights. And while this isn’t your traditional Valentine’s gift, I would love it if someone gave this to me. Fill the project with photographs of you and your significant other and then change out the photos when Valentine’s is over. It’s a fun way to display your favorite photos all year round. PhotoLightsThe PhotoLights Light Strand comes with 10 small picture frames. Each of the image slots are 2.5″ x 2.5″. Use the Printable Backlit Film to print your images for use in the PhotoLights boxes. You can print using a Laser Printer or an Ink Jet Printer. I would suggest using a Laser Printer, the Ink Jet works great but you need to be very careful handling them (the ink rubs off a little bit). I used my ink jet and you can’t tell in the pictures, so it does work just fine if you are delicate with it.

Hope you have been inspired to create some fun projects for Valentine’s for your loved ones. If you do have something to share, please share it on social media with us, like on our Facebook page. No matter what you are looking for from We R, we have it all. Try our awesome selection of We R Memory Keepers paper. Also, be sure to check out the Stitch Happy sewing solution, which will be released later this year.

Happy creating!
