**This will be Chantalle’s final post as a member of our design team. We wish her the very best and have loved featuring her creative projects, tips and ideas. Next month we’ll be welcoming a new member of our team, so stay tuned!**
Hello we R Fans! The reason we all love We R Memory Keepers so much is because, in my opinion, they make THE BEST tools around!
No matter what type of projects you like to create, whether it’s card making, scrapbooking, project life-ing or sewing, they have the perfect tool for the job.
Here is a shortlist of a few of my very favourite, favourites…
The Typecast opened new doors for me. I am one of those people that hate their own handwriting, and being able to create memorable, neat journaling directly on a 12×12 sheet of paper was so liberating!
I love the fact that I can just pop a bit of paper or a journaling card into the typewriter, and within seconds, have exactly the wording that I need.
The Typecast range comes with a compliment of stunning papers and accessories as well as many interchangeable ribbon spools so you can type in lots of different colours. This is a going away card that I created using my Typecast and several journaling cards from the Typecast collection.
Here you can see an example of a scrapbook page where I have typed directly onto the 12×12 paper. Paired with the Mini Alphabet Punch Board, you can create fantastic title and journaling combinations!
CIRCLE CLEAR CUT PUNCH
Next up are the Clear Cut Punches. These babies are so amazing, you can punch anywhere on your project.
The Circle Clear Cut Punch is probably my favourite. Such a versatile shape, I have used mine so many times to create patterns on my scrapbook pages, die cut shapes for cards and albums and even frames. Punch exactly what you want, where you want!
The unique Clear-cut guide and magnetic punch system takes the guesswork out of perfect punching and the Transparent guide system makes alignment easy and allows for precise punching anywhere
Here you can see some festive treat bags I created using the Circle Clear Cut Punch and another of my all-time favourite tools, my Envelope Punchboard.
Another thing I love about the Clear Cut Punches are that they create die cut shapes, which you can then use as ephemera on new projects.
No doubt, there were plenty of people doing the happy dance when the Happy Jig was announced, including me!
This easy-to-use jig makes wire working a breeze, by allowing you to wrap wire around the pegs to create fun embellisments for your projects.
There are over 100 design templates available in the instruction book and on Instagram. Be sure to give @werhappyjig a follow to find lots of inspiration, instructions and how-tos!
Each 100-piece kit includes colored wire, pegs, and wire cutters and includes a built-in storage compartment for supplies.
Additional wire colors are sold individually and in packs.
The easy-to-follow instruction book includes step-by-step instructions for bending wire into letters, shapes, and words.
I love the dimension the wire embellishment adds and its so satisfying to tell people, “I made that!”
May you enjoy many happy hours crafting with your favourite WeR tools!
