WRMK | Love Shaker Cards


[AD] WRMK Love Shaker Cards
Shake it BABY! Join me for a fun tutorial how to make LOVE SHAKER CARDS with tools from We R Memory Keepers. LOVE is one of the main topics of songs AND cards :). Don't you agree? Why not create fancy love shaker cards? Bold letters saying XOXO are the star of today's cards. And the letters are backed with a cool acetate shaker pocket. I'm sharing a video here on my blog / YouTube. Are you going to check it out?! Would love for you to see it ♥.



HOW TO:
  1. Pick a patterned paper from the Peaceful Heart Collection by Jen Hadfield. Cut a slim card with the Slim Line Punch Board. Follow the instructions that come with the punch board.
  2. Next, cut a coordinating envelope with the Slime Line Punch Board.
  3. Trim white cardstock to fit the slim card. Make it a bit smaller so that the patterned paper can still be seen.
  4. Die cut letters from the white cardstock with the Revolution Die Cutting Machine and the Revolution Alphabet Dies.
  5. Grab a sheet of acetate and trim it to the size of the slim card. Fold the acetate and add sequins. Create an acetate pocket by glueing the acetate with double-sided tape.
  6. Attach the white cardstock with the cut-out letters onto the acetate pocket. Glue the shaker element onto the slim card.
  7. Add embellishments to your liking. You can add a bow, dried flowers, or stickers.
  8. As a nice detail, stamp a sentiment onto the round shape of the letter 'O'.






And now I invite you to watch my video ♥:

WRMK | Travel Memory Box with layered butterflies



Hello and welcome to mojosanti. Today we are going to make a super-easy and fun travel memory box. It can be used to hold beach finds, photos, and other keepsakes. The layered butterflies are an eye-catcher on the box cover. Turn an ordinary box into a fun piece of decoration. You might want to check out my reels video on instagram.




How to:
  1. Grab a patterned paper from the Round Trip Collection by Maggie Holmes, and the specialty paper from the Sweet Rush Collection by Vicki Boutin. Punch butterflies from the papers with the Nesting Punches Butterflies.
  2. Create layered butterflies with a stapler (or liquid glue).
  3. Grab a box and attach the layered butterflies with foam pads.
  4. Keep photos, memoriables, and beach finds inside the box.




TIP:
To punch the butterflies from the specialty paper, just leave the paper inside the foil packaging and punch the butterflies. It will help you to create clean punched butterflies.






SUPPLIES / TOOLS:


Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you will collect many wonderful memories this summer. Why not keep them in a pretty box with layered butterflies on the cover of the box?! Xoxo, Sandra.



American Crafts | Summer Travel Album | Point Planner and Round Trip Papercollection

American Crafts Summer Travel Album with the Point Planner and the Round Trip Papercrafting Collection by Maggie Holmes Cover Page Mojosanti


It's so much fun to sit by the sea and create a summer travel album. So before you go, grab a bag, an adhesive tape roller, washi-tape, pens, ephemera, and any other accessories you would like to use in your travel album. And then, during the day, take some time to write down things you did and moments you want to remember. I used the Point Planner from American Crafts and bits and pieces from the Round Trip Papercrafting Collection by Maggie Holmes for my holiday memory album.




I used a travel printer, which makes it easy to print photos on the go. During the day you can take photos, print them and glue them into the album. Such a fun way to record travel memories.








Supplies:
  • Leathered Point Planner and Accessories from American Crafts
  • We R Memory Keepers Crafter's Bag
  • Round Trip Papercrafting Collection by Maggie Holmes

Thank you for stopping by. Please make sure to watch my reel on instagram - I'm sharing more how-to impressions in the video over there.

WRMK | Clipboard Travel Mini Album | Round Trip Maggie Holmes + Video



Hello and welcome to a fun Clipboard Travel Album inspiration here on my blog mojosanti. Are you looking for a fancy way to document your travel adventures? A clipboard is highly flexible. Because you can add as many pages as you like. I used the new Round Trip Collection by Maggie Holmes for American Crafts, the pink Crop-A-Dile by We R Memory Keepers with two eyelets, and the Trim and Score Board to create today's travel album. There is a video on my YouTube channel. You are very welcome to watch the video. You can find the link further down in this post.



You will need a clipboard, a Crop-A-Dile, the Trim and Score Board + two eyelets as well as papers and embellishments from the Round Trip Papercrafting Collection by Maggie Holmes. The Postcard Booklet from Round Trip is so pretty. And it's also perfect for this travel album project.


Start with the clipboard. Decorate it with chipboard stickers, a photo frame ephemera from Round Trip, and add some of the postcards with the Crop-A-Dile and two eyelets.



Next, cut patterned papers to fit onto the clipboard. Just measure the length and width and cut the paper accordingly. Then punch holes at the top of the patterned papers with the Crop-A-Dile. Next add baker's twine for the closure. You can even create a fancy cover page with two pieces of accetate foil, sequins, and stickers. I sewed around the edges of the accetate foil with my sewing machine. This will hold the foil together. In addition, it also adds a nice little detail on the cover page of the travel album.




Supplies:
