Have you seen the NEW Happy Jig collection from We R Memory Keepers in action, yet? If not, you need to get on that, ASAP. When I was at the CHA show this year, the Happy Jig was quite possibly my favorite new tool. The way it works is you use the wire-bending tool kit to bend wire with the use of a peg board to make into fun and interesting designs. The kit comes with various sized pegs, a base that has a bunch of little holes in it, wire crimps, a booklet with designs, and three lengths of wire to get you started. I highly recommend picking up a few more colors of wire or try the multi-packs, like Colored and Neutral. These designs are addictive to make, so you’re going to want plenty of wire!

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

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” »
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.
