Laura Silva

Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Hello, We R friends! My name is Laura and I am so excited to be back again for another year on the We R Memory Keepers design team. You can find me sharing craft tutorials, organizing tips, and free printables over on my blog, Laura’s Crafty Life.  I live in northern Arizona with my husband and two school age kids. I have loved crafting since I was a little girl. My other favorite things are reading, watching Hallmark movies, and getting outside in nature.

My favorite project I made for the We R blog is the garland punch mobile. I love anything with a rainbow pattern. It was so easy to make, too!

I recently have been reorganizing my craft room. I love using craft carts to corral all my supplies. I have one set up with just We R Memory Keepers supplies.

I can store most of my punch boards, the Happy Jig, and my small tools. I used some small storage containers that fit perfectly in the cart to corral all the little bits and pieces.

Plus, I can roll it to wherever I am working, which I think is my favorite part!

Rebecca Luminarias

Rebecca Luminarias for We R Memory Keepers

I live in Southern California with my husband (Arvin) and 2 young children (Augustus & Anemone). My crafting obsession is gift wrap & tags; I love to create my own, but I also enjoy seeing how others turn a plain box into a work of art. I’m an introvert who craves quiet alone time, but I also enjoy being around close friends and my family. I have a vivid and very active imagination, which is a gift and a curse, inspiring both passionate creativity and relentless worry.  For the last 12 years, I’ve been pushing that imagination to focus more on the creative side, and it just might be working!  I’ve been on the We R team as of late 2018, and I’m looking forward to another exciting year with WRMK!

Here are some photos of one of my favorite projects:



Soraya Maes

Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Hello everyone! My name is Soraya Maes, I’m a 38 year-old-mom and wife living in the French Riviera, Southern France. I started scrapbooking in 2005 but it has always been a part of me since I started documenting my everyday life and special moments in notebooks when I was 11. This is probably why I love journaling so much! I love everything about DIY, baking and sewing costumes for my kids. Now I’m a lucky full-time scrapbooker and I love it! I’m also a craft author since I released my first book a few months ago. It was such a fabulous adventure!

Here’s a photo of one of my favorite projects and a peek into my craft room!

Stefanie RiedSteffi Ried for We R Memory Keepers

I am Steffi and live with my daughter Anni and my husband in a small village in the south of Germany. It is located between Stuttgart and Munich. I started scrapbooking in 2012 when my daughter was born. I searched the internet for inspiration for a baby album. And so I came across scrapbooking.

I started with mini albums. That is also my great passion today. I love to record our journeys, birthdays, small and big moments in albums. In addition, I also like to make layouts. There I can live out my creative ideas. Beside scrapbooking I also like to make decorations. At home I am also creative together with my daughter. She has the passion of me. I have infected her. That is so beautiful.

I also teach Scrapbook Workshops. I like to meet other people who share the same passion for craft and scrapbooking.

I am very happy to be a part of this wonderful design team with all the talented ladies! I really like We R Memory Keepers products because they are often used and a great help in many creative things. That’s what I LOVE about it.


Thanks for stopping by and getting to know our 2019 Design Team a little better. We’re so excited for you to see what they share with us starting next week! It’s all about storage and organization so you’ll definitely want to tune in and get the new year off on the right foot. See you then!
