  5. Sizzix Chapter 1 2019 Releases

    completed fabric project with sloth bigz dieby Richelle Naegle This year, Sizzix has changed how they do their releases. Now there will just be four releases throughout the year (so they are bigger). This Chapter 1 2019 Sizzix release has some great new dies from some of your favorite designers, such as Tim Holtz, Jen Long, Katelyn Lizardi, and Stephanie Barnard. But we also have some fun new designers that you likely have never heard of, for example Olivia Rose, Georgie Evans, Carrotcake and more. Regardless of what catches your fancy, don't forget to check out all these new designers. I thought I should try some of these new Sizzix dies so I could show you some different projects. The first project I made was this adorable fabric sloth using the Sizzix Sloth Bigz Die. You can cut felt and other materials with Bigz dies, so don't limit your creativity. This little sloth is made out of felt and I hand-stitched it all together. I'm not much of a seamstress, but even I could stitch this done rather easily. Continue reading →

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 →
  7. 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!

  10. 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 →
