Punching repeated letters is easy to do.

Word Board Punch

Here’s how I do it:

  1. Simple spell out the word you would like to punch placing another punch in the repeated letter space.
  2. Once all of the letters inserts are in place, pick up the letter insert that does not belong.
  3. Slide the paper right in the corner groove of the punch board, so that your second punch will line up.
  4. Punch the word.Word Punch Board
  5. Move the repeated letter into the open space and punch again.Word Punch Board

Nice and easy. Instructions are located included in the box just in case you need it.

Pushing the Punch: Punching a Sentence

Word Punch Board

I love seeing how far a tool can go and this one did not disappoint! I punch a sentence!! Yes, a full sentence minus the punctuation. (Maybe, the company will create some punctuation marks after this review. Crossing my fingers.)

Here’s how I did it:

  1. Place the letters in the punch board, leaving space between each word.
  2. If the sentence is short, less than 10 letters, all of the inserts will fit.
  3. If the sentence is long, more than 10 letters, punch the first set of words.
  4. Remove the inserts and add the rest of the inserts, eyeballing the space between each letter and words, punch.
  5. Repeat step 4 if you need to.

Amazing right! It’s perfect for scrapbook pages. Creating your own title.

We R Memory Keepers Square Punch Board Review

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the new We R Memory Keepers Square Punch Board Review!!

I love all of We R Memory Keepers punch boards. They are easy to use and convient! I needed to see for myself whether or not this one would hold up the punch board reputation.

Let’s get started:

The Square Punch Board can punch squares in a lot of different sizes from 3/4 by 3/4 to 3 by 4!

No need for different handheld punches in different square sizes now.  Its all in one tool!!

Square Punch Board

Here’s how to use:

  1. Slide the guides at the top and on the side to the measurement you want.
  2. Slide the paper in into the tool along the guides and punch.
  3. The cut square will fall underneath the tool to allow you to continue cutting.

Its easy as one-two-three!!

What do I think?

I love it!! I recommend it to everyone who loves cutting out squares.

  1. This punch can cut multiple sizes with one punch vs. the handheld punches that cuts one size.
  2. It cuts rectangle too!
  3. The guides move with easy across the tool.
  4. The measurements are clearly labeled at the top, bottom and the side of the punch.
  5. The measurements are listed in inches and centimeters.
  6. The price is reasonable.
  7. The bottom has four silicone feet that stops the punch from sliding, even on top of a glass surface.
  8. The punch weights about a pound to a pound and a half.

Here’s how I used my cut pieces:

Square Punch Board

I created cards that I could use in my planners to encourage me everyday.

After I cut the different sizes, I added some stickers to each cut piece.

Then I used the Planner Pouch Board to cut the holes that match my mini planner. If you missed that review, you can view it here.

Each card fits nice and neat in my planner.

We Are Memory Keepers Planner Punch Review

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the long awaited We Are Memory Keepers Planner Punch Review!!

Planner Punch Board review

I learned about the Planner Punch before Creativation this year.  I don’t remember where but when I saw it I knew that I had to stop at the We R Memory Keepers booth to test this one out. That I did and I’ve been waiting for this product to hit the stores so that I could get one for myself.

Let’s get started:

The Planner Punch Board comes with Adjustable Punches

we r memory keepers planner punch
The Planner Punch Board comes with 5 circle inserts. Use these inserts for ring binder planners.

we r memory keepers planner punch board

The Planner Punch Board has a Punch Position Number chart. You use these numbers to align the punches up correctly.

The Planner Punch comes with hole catcher that opens so that you can empty it out.

You can store your inserts flat within the base.

we r memory keepers planner punch board

The directions are printed directly on the back of the punch board. (After reading the direction, I found the sticker for the happy planner

we r memory keepers planner punch board

Lets see how this tool works:

Mind you, I did not read the directions before playing with it.  I wanted to see if I could figure this tool out just by playing with it. 

The paper I used was Canson Watercolor paper weighting 140lbs.

I started with the circle binder inserts that came with the punch board. I have a two ring binder that I wanted to add a watercolor insert.

  1. I measured one of the pages inside the binder to cut the watercolor paper to the correct size.we r memory keepers planner punch board
  2. Then I used the middle line in the page protector to center my paper.  Once that was done, I placed the inserts in the corresponding punch position number.  Which is 10 and 63.
  3. I punch the holes. we r memory keepers planner punch board
  4. The holes were punch cleanly.we r memory keepers planner punch board
  5. The page fits perfectly in the binder. we r memory keepers planner punch board

For the next test I used the circle inserts to create a watercolor panel for a 6 ring binder.

  1. Follow steps 1 and 2 from above.
  2. For the 6 ring binder, you only need three of the inserts.
  3. Line the paper up using the grove on the left side of the punch and punch the first three holes.we r memory keepers planner punch board
  4. Turn the paper around and punch the other side of the paper to punch the other 3 holes. we r memory planner punch board
  5. Fits perfect in my 6 ring binder. we r memory keepers planner punch board

The planner punch board is only for ring binders.  They have inserts to fit the other planners on the market.

Check out the other inserts:

we r memory keepers planner punch board inserts

The inserts on the left are called the Disc Punch Inserts and the ones on the right are called the Spiral Punch Inserts.

The disc punch inserts work in the same fashion as the circle inserts.  The spiral punch inserts work a bit differently.

Lets start with disc punch inserts:

  1. For the disc inserts, I used one of the pages from my mini planner to line up the disc inserts.
  2. There are 7 rings but the package comes with 6 inserts.  So you have to turn the paper over to punch the last hole.we r memory keepers disc inserts
  3. The planner position numbers are 2, 15, 28, 53, 65 and 2 again for the last one.we r memory keepers disc punch
  4. It fits perfectly in my planner.we r memory keepers disc punch inserts

The spiral inserts are a bit different. You only get one punch for the different punches.

The pink insert punches 4 holes per inch.

The gold insert punches 3 holes per inch.

The teal insert punches 2 holes per inch.

Lets take a look:

According to the directions, you place the punch at line 37 and use the center line to start. I didn’t do that.  So you will see my photos different then what the company may show.

  1. Place the insert inside the punch board.
  2. I used the line guide to line my paper up so that I can punch.
  3. Then I used the guide on the side of the punch to punch even space holes in my paper.
  4. Punch the entire side of the paper.we r memory keepers spiral inserts

I went against the directions and started where I wanted to.

Take a look at all three of them together.

All punch and the inserts are super easy to use. The possibilities are endless with this tool. You can make a varsity of handmade pages.

Here is a tip for your inserts:

They clip together so that you don’t lose a piece.

we r memory keepers planner punch board

So here you have it!!  The Planner Pouch Board!

What do I think?

I love it!! I recommend it for those of you who are planner lovers.

  1. This tool is easy to carry vs. the bigger punches for each planner system.
  2. It fits right in your bag.
  3. With this tool, you can create pages for any planner, not just the one you have.
  4. It’s inexpensive.
  5. You can create custom pages for your planner.
  6. You can also create your own book with it.
  7. It cuts though thick paper with ease.

I put in an order with Simply Charming Bags for a custom bag for my punch and the additional inserts. I will share it when it arrives.

So what do you think? Would you add this to your planner supply collection? I would love to hear from you. Leave a comment below.

Ink Blending Tool vs. Clarity Brushes

Hello everyone!!  I here with a post that is quite different then my other card post.

On Instagram, I love giving my opinion on the different tools that I own and use.  So, that way my followers would be more informed about the products they see and want but aren’t sure if they should step out on that limb.

So this morning, I posted this picture:

ink blending 2

I was simply sharing an upcoming project that isn’t due to release until April 1st.

Then a good friend of mines asked me to do a comparison between these Ink Blending Tools and the new Clarity Brushes.

I agree to do it so here you go:

Comparison

Here are my finding:

Round Blending Tool:

  1. Blends the colors well with good pressure.
  2. To keep from having harsh lines, you have to tap off first or start adding color off of the paper.
  3. Snags on the stencils that are intricate.
  4. Easy and small enough to hold.
  5. You can use one tool with different sponge (extra cost).
  6. The cost of the blending tool is $8.17 and it comes with two handles and four sponges.
  7. The additional sponges are $8.36.
  8. When blending, the color didn’t transfer into the sponge.
  9. Due to the shape of the blending tool, you have to mask off areas you don’t want color to appear.

Clarity Brushes:

  1. Blends the colors well with little pressure.
  2. No need to tap off or start adding color off the paper, the brushes doesn’t create harsh lines.
  3. Does not snag on the stencils that are intricate.
  4. Easy to hold, but brushes are tall.
  5. They come in four different sizes.
  6. You can use one brush for each color family (no additional cost).
  7. The cost of the brushes are $25.00 for four.
  8. When blending, the color didn’t transfer onto the brush.
  9. The tip of the brush is small enough for you to add and blend colors where you want them without masking off.

Note: Take a look at the outer circles of both cards. The blending tool added color to the outer circle on the card to the left because I didn’t mask off. The clarity brush didn’t add color to the outer circles because I have control over where the color goes due to the tip!

I like them both, but the brushes are easier to use with less elbow grease. I have two sets one for each color family. No need to buy anything extra.

So what do you think? I hope this comparison was helpful to all of you.  If you wanted to see what some to my Instagram followers were saying you can check it here.
