Happy Independence Day to our US friends. We’ve got a little housekeeping to take care of today. We’re sad to say goodbye to team member Nancy Damiano, and we wish her the very best. Please welcome our new team member, Enza Gudor!
Hello, crafty friends! Enza here and I’m thrilled to share my very first post on the We R Memory Keepers blog! This is a dream come true for me. I have always loved the fun and versatile tools they come up with, and am looking forward to sharing more of my projects with you.
Today I have a travel layout featuring the amazing Happy Jig. This tool is a must-have! You can make any design or shape with it, and it sure gives your scrapbook pages a unique and fun look.
I knew I wanted a big title for my page, so I started by creating my own custom words. I took inspiration from some of the letters in the instruction booklet that comes with the tool, as well as the We R Happy Jig Instagram account. Once you figure out how it works, it is pretty easy to make any shape you can think of. The wire is flexible and easy to work with, and all the different colors are perfect to personalize your projects. It’s also nice that you can vary the size of the letters, allowing for lots of options.
I picked blue and pink wire for this page. I actually made the words before even choosing a collection to work with. I was that excited to use my new toy!
To keep the words in place, I just hand-stitched them with embroidery thread. I have tried other options, but this worked best for me.
The other tool I used for this layout is the Tag Punch Board – another essential if you ask me. I love adding tags to my projects whenever I can, and this makes it super easy and fast.
Here I used the tags as layering elements behind my photos.
If you are looking for ways to personalize your pages and make them unique, you don’t want to pass on these fantastic tools. The possibilities are endless.
Thank you for stopping by today. Have a wonderful day!
