Holiday Treats with GlueArts and We R Memory Keepers!

Hello Friends!

We can't help during this time of the year but to stop and remind ourselves of all the things and people we're thankful for.

We're thankful for friends and fans like YOU!!

Today we're back with more projects and ideas from our talented team of GlueArts Designers using We R Memory Keepers new Autumn Splendor collection!

New Designer Tamara Tripodi has the perfect item to show someone just how much they mean to you during this season of Thanks! And New Designer Jaime Warren has a beautiful layout that you too can make to capture memories this season.




Holiday Treat Containers
GlueArts Designer: Tamara Tripodi


SUPPLIES:

We R Memory Keepers Autumn Splendor (Designer Scrapbook Pad, Embossible Designs Stickers, Layered Chipboard stickers, Crop-a-Dile and Eyelets)
Canvas Corp Jute Cord in Chocolate
Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Tools (Button round 20 and Heart 25)
Corrugated heart shape by Jillibean Soup
Crinkle ribbon
Fiskars crimping tool

INSTRUCTIONS:
Trim paper to 6 1/2 x 7 1/2
Add Glue Arts Perma Tac adhesive to all edge and roll into a cylinder.
Close edges.
Crimp with Fiskars paper crimper.
Embellish finished boxes! For the tags, I removed the adhesive backing with a craft knife (lifts right off!)
Then I added a Glue Arts Raisens.
Tie ribbons, make buttons and shapes with Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio tools..

Add We R memory Keepers Eyelets.
When done, you can make a cute box for them and give them away as favors after Thanksgiving, to the host, kids, etc.!


Pumpkin Fun Layout
GlueArts Designer: Jaime Warren

Supplies:
Glue Glider Pro
U Cut It 3D Adhesive Foam
We R Memory Keepers Autumn Splendor Scrapbook Pad
We R Memory Keepers Glitter Brads
We R Memory Keepers Embossed Designs Stickers


Instructions:
 First step is to layer the patterned paper. I score the sides and trim accordingly and then distress the edges just a bit. Then I attach with the Glue Glider Pro, centering the top sheet over the bottom sheet.
Then the fun starts! I group little clusters of embellishments around the edges of my layout - until it starts to feel "right" and balanced. Typically I use around 3 embellishments in a cluster, but for the main cluster I use more. Once I have my embellishment clusters in place I drop a few bits of mist on the paper! Then it's time to add my photos (for this layout I lined them up with my main embellishment cluster.)
 I loved the Pumpkin banner, so, I used it as part of my title by simply cutting it out and attaching it with U Cut It 3D Adhesive Foam! I finished my title off with the word "fun" and then drew my journaling lines. 

The finishing touch is a simple scalloped border around the edges to help "fill in" the layout!

  48. Your sour cream container treat boxes are the cutest ones I've seen by far! I talked my sister-in-law and cousin's wife into making these for their kids' classes for Halloween. They were very popular. As far as the extra hour, I spent it obsessively watching ABC's "Once Upon a Time"...so cute, just like your sour cream containers! LOL
