We R Memory Keepers CHA...

If you are a crafter then you know it is that time of the year again...CHA! All week long we have seen the latest and greatest of what will come. I thought since everyone is packing up and headed back home I would share with you a few of my MUST haves from We R Memory Keepers.
My first must have is this paper trimmer and scorer...

Trim and score projects with the convenience of one tool. Cut precisely using titanium blades on the easy-to-use 12×12” fold out surface, or create score lines for any crafting project. With measurements in both inches and centimeters, it’s perfect for creating boxes, cards, and envelopes. The Trim & Score Board and Trim & Score Refill Blades begin shipping this October.

Next, I have my own room dedicated to my craft, but when I have my sister come over she has to sit and scrap on the more once I get my hands on this... The craft table folds out to 23 ½” wide x 59” high x 34” deep.

Save even more space by folding the craft table up, and it becomes a decorative chalkboard that can be replaced with photos or artwork. The Fold Down Craft Table includes: chalkboard, chalk, eraser, multiple storage compartments, and required hanging hardware. Look for the Fold Down Craft Tables this fall.

Check out the PUNCH BOARDS! Punch Boards make it easy, not to mention cost-effective, to create party bags and boxes simply by punching and scoring using any paper. Create bags and boxes in a variety of sizes and use them for special occasions such as baby and wedding showers, birthdays, holidays, party favors, and more. Use the Punch Boards to create Gift Bags, Gift Boxes, Pillow Boxes, and Candy Boxes. Look for these new tools this fall.

How cool is this, you can now punch your photo or paper a perfect 3x4" without measuring...

For those of us who love easy clean-up... The Precision Glass Cutting Mat is so much more than just an ordinary cutting mat. It’s made from tempered glass and comes with a smooth 13 inch surface for precise cutting and easy clean up. The non-skid feet and durable work surface make it perfect for cutting, stamping, painting, scrapbooking, and it’s even safe for hot glue. Look for angle measurement lines, in addition to both inch and metric markings. The Precision Glass Cutting Mat begins shipping this summer.

And last but not least...we are all aboard the Washi Tape train right now. It has got to be one of the hottest trends right now. Well, WR took it one step further with this new chevron tape... Not only is it tape, it is actually cut and shaped like chevron!

I will leave you all drooling over these new products for now, check back later for the new paper line releases and make sure you look for these products which will be coming out soon!

Senior Prom...

Senior Prom...the dance to end all dances! Not to be bias or anything but I think my son and his date were the best looking couple. I was so excited when I opened up my goodies from RRBF and saw that the new lines were a PERFECT match to highlight my photos. My son's date's dress was this beautiful gold ombre sequined with pinks and purples. (The photo does not really do the dress justice). She wanted to pull the gold out of her dress so my son was accented in shimmery gold with pink flowers to pull the pink out of the sequins. They looked beautiful. I used a subtle black print for the background to pull in the color of the tux and accented it all with pinks and golds to tie in all the colors. And of course, what layout is complete without bling, ribbon, twine and pop dots!
