The Ultimate Inspiration Calendar for Card-Mailers - January 2020

Welcome to 2020! It is a new year, hey, even a new decade and it is time to start working on goals. This year, make your goal about sending more snail mail. Whether it is a card you made or a card you purchased, let The Ultimate Inspiration Calendar for Card-Mailers help inspire you to mail cards.

The goal of this calendar is to encourage you to find reasons to send cards. Each day of the month has a serious, fun, or downright silly celebration attached to it. Use those days to help you create a card, or think of someone in your life who could use a card.

For example January 3 is chocolate covered cherry day. This makes me think of my dad. He loves anything chocolate. I remember when he was excited about Dairy Queen having a chocolate covered cherry Blizzard. They were his favorite. Because I am thinking of my dad, I will send him a card and probably drop a Dairy Queen gift card inside the envelope too. Not only will I send him a little gift, but the story is a wonderful memory and he will know that I was thinking of him. That is a lot of love tucked inside an envelope. Imagine the difference you can make in your world by sending cards?!

For another example, take a look at January 21. Its National Hugging Day. I can think of several stamp and die sets I have with the word "hugs." GinaK has one that pops to mind. On that day I will make a card using those products and send it to someone who has been on my mind. See all the inspiration possibilities?!

Happy New Year! Quick and Easy Party Favors with the We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill

Happy New Year! May 2020 be filled with joy and happiness for you and your family! 

One of my all-time favorite treats is Moose Munch from Harry & David's. Especially the dark chocolate version! Its a special treat that I get once, maybe twice a year. After I found some at my local grocery store, I knew it would also be perfect to use for a great New Year celebration party favor! Crafting and chocolate snacks? Does it get any better? I mean really? :D
To start with, I typed my words out into the software of my Silhouette Cameo digital cutting machine. While I was formatting the type, I plugged the We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill into a USB power source and placed it in the pen tool slot on my Cameo. (I have version 3, with two tool holders.) Once the wording was formatted, I sent the image to the Silhouette and the Foil Quill performed its magic! 

When adding the foil to the top of your cardstock, use washi tape to hold it in place. The foil also needs to be as flat as possible on the paper for the best results.
After the foiling was complete, I used the WRMK Tag Punch Board to create tags. When using this tool, I always test a scrap piece of paper first, to check the angles on the top.
The Tag Punch Board also helps you punch a hole. Using the lines, you can perfectly center the hole.
I filled decorative treat bags from Michael's with the popcorn and closed the bags with a twist-tie. Then I wrapped ribbon around the bag closure. Both ends of the ribbon were passed through the tag hole and tied tightly around the bag in a bow.
To add more bling, I punched gold glitter paper with a WRMK Clear Cut Punch. It added some fun bling. In fact, I should have added more stars! 
The straight ribbon ends seemed kind of blah to me. To add some curl (to my wired ribbon) I wrapped it around my stylus tool. How cute is that?
Fun, easy, quick, sparkly, and tasty. Seems like one fabulous party treat for New Years Eve or New Years Day! For more details, visit the We R Memory Keepers Blog for my post.

quick holiday cards - Cordless Marker Airbrush

Join me over on Instagram and check out the latest tool from We R Memory Keepers, the Cordless Marker Airbrush. This tool adds a great airbrushed look to your projects! Check out all the ways I used it on this set of Christmas cards.

And hey, if you still need to work on your Christmas cards, let this be some inspiration for you! 
Because I certainly fall into that category! 
After die cutting various leaves and berries from basic white card stock, I added layers of color with the Cordless Marker Airbrush and the markers that come with it. The markers are juicy and vibrant. The color selection is great-especially for layering!

By layering greens, yellows, and blues, I was able to get a ton of dimension and texture on these die cut pieces! Adding the color is easy, making quick work of mass-producing cards!
I created the custom background paper with a stencil. Using stencils with this tool is wonderful! Great coverage and the stencils wash clean quickly with water in the sink.

I also added a touch of color and stripes to my envelopes! What a fun way to finish off my cards!
Pop on over to Instagram and join me. @kimberlystamps
