Hey there We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here to share with you a layout that I created with the Happy Jig. My kids and I have had so much fun playing with this new tool. Yes, it’s easy enough for kids to play with. The Happy Jig makes awesome unique embellishments for scrapbooking.
I chose to create a layout with three adorable green wire cacti to document my recent trip to Arizona. It was so easy to create these three cacti with green wire and a little bit of patterned paper. I started by creating three cacti according to the directions in the instruction booklet. After I had the wire outlines created, I added patterned paper behind each wire shape.
To add the patterned paper, I used a strong craft glue to adhere the wire to the paper. I waited until after the glue was dry before I trimmed around the cacti. Of course, I used my favorite new Crafter Essential Details Scissors to trim around the edges of the cacti. They worked perfectly.
When it was time to add these wire embellishments to the layout I used dimensional adhesive. I wanted these awesome embellishments to pop off of the page.
I used a few more We R Memory Keeper tools to complete this layout. The main photo on this layout is stitched in place on three sides to create a pocket.
Then I created a few tags with the Tag Punch board to add a few more photos and journaling. I always reach for my Typecast Typewriter when it’s time to add journaling. I love adding typewritten journaling to my layouts.
This layout was so fun and so easy to create with a few of my favorite tools from We R Memory Keepers. I can’t wait to see what you create with the Happy Jig. Happy crafting my friends! I’ll see you soon.
