With their beautiful and vibrant colors and clever patterns, these collections will have you making stunning crafts. And if you like to make crafting easier, or like me, you want to learn a new crafting technique, then you need to check out the Club Kits. They'll give you the best Graphic 45 project ideas. Lost in Paradise Travel Planner We are going to start today with the Lost in Paradise Travel Album w/ Notebook Club Kit. These kits come with almost everything you need to create these projects, and they also include easy-to-follow, detailed instructions. For my project, I wanted a different cover then they directed, so I just switched the cards. Note that if you do make a switch, you will likely be using an element from another page and you will have to swap that one as well. Continue reading →
  2. 2019 Winter Craft Product Release

    Some of the world's famous craft designers have or will be releasing new amazing product collections for upcoming holidays and spring themes, as well as new solutions for any kind of project. Richelle just returned from CHA 2019, and she's so excited for the entire year, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. In our 2019 winter craft product release, we are excited to offer you: Foil Quill foil quill cricut project with the gold foiled leavesThis will maybe be the most popular product of the year! We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill allows you to transform your Cricut machine or your CAMEO into a foiling machine. The collection includes heat-activated pens, foil sheets, foil rolls, and designs from some of your favorite designers. It works with any artwork (SVG and PNG), but you will love these USB design drives that include 200 icons, phrases, and more. The best way to get started is to buy the All-In-One Kit. Designers include Heidi Swapp, Amy Tangerine, Kelly Creates, and more. Speaking of foil and Heidi Swapp, there was a MINC release, too. In addition to some cool new accessories and projects, they released several tools that should make your projects better. One last thing before we get away from We R Memory Keepers: they have also released Big Happy Jig supplies, which revisits last year's popular release of the Happy Jig. As you might've guessed, the new Happy Jig is bigger and allows you to do larger wire-bending projects. Continue reading →
  3. New Happy Jig by We R Memory Keepers

    by Richelle Naegle 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 pegboard 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!

  6. Sweet Sugarbelle Project: Cactus Cookie Cutters Set

    cactus cookie cutter set components and boxAt CraftDirect, we've wanted to do a Sweet Sugarbelle cookie-cutter project for quite some time, so I took the opportunity this Christmas break. I visited my nieces (ages 13 and 9) and nephew (age 4) in Georgia where it was bitter cold and gray, the type of weather that is perfect for cookie baking. Everyone was happy to participate, and we all had fun. The great thing about Sweet Sugarbelle cookie cutters is their products make it easy to create intricate sugar cookie designs using stencils and other helpful accessories. Getting Started Because I'm from Arizona, I thought the kids would like to get a little taste of the desert, so I selected the Cactus Cookie Cutter Set. It includes two cookie cutters, two templates, and two instruction cards. In addition to that, we used Disposable Piping Bags and a few household utensils, like butter knives and spatulas. Since we've been selling Sweet Sugarbelle, I've wondered what the templates look like. It turns out they are made of thin, clear plastic. You punch out the shapes to get the positive and the negative stencil: Continue reading →

  9. Tim Holtz Halloween Release & Project

    completed tim holtz crazy dog halloween cardby Richelle Naegle With October 31st still a few months away, Tim Holtz has been working hard on new designs. The new Tim Holtz Halloween release has inspired me to craft, the only problem is his new line isn't quite in stock yet. I had to get creative and use some of my favorite dies that I already have. The Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs and Crazy Cats are among the funniest designs in his entire portfolio, and when you combine them with the Crazy Things, you can really dress the dogs and cats up to match the occasion at hand. The overall size of this card is 3" x 3". I used the Mini Crazy Cats & Dogs dies & stamps bundle to make the dog, and then I used the Crazy Things die and stamps bundle for the witch's hat and broom. The stamps work very well with these dies because they make it so easy to have all the fun details of the dog without having to draw them on. Continue reading →
  10. Introducing Stitch Happy by We R Memory Keepers

    mint stitch happy machine packaging by Richelle Naegle 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 →
