In addition to six new paper collections, We R Memory Keepers introduced their Albums Made Easy system, available to stores in March. In a sea of pocket page products and accoutrements at this show, several items in particular stood out.
The 3×4 rounded corner rectangle punch helps memory keepers punch their own pocket-sized journaling cards or photos in that ever-so-familiar, rounded style. It ships to stores in June and will cost $29.
And in answer to an age-old scrapbooking peeve, We R Memory Keepers invented a new 3-ring “Flush Bound” page protector that is fused together in a way that leaves no gutter down the center of a two-page spread. These will be available to ship in March and will cost $5.99 for a package of 5.
Also notable in this release were the washi sheets and 6×6 washi pads. The 12×12, single design sheets are ideal for die cutting machines. The 6×6 pads offer 20 sheets of 10 different designs for $7.99 and will appeal to card makers, instructors, and anyone who enjoys a smaller sampling of many styles. Both the washi sheets and pads will be shipping to retailers in February.
We R Memory Keepers, who made many of the Project Life system components before Becky Higgins began her partnership with American Crafts, is also introducing its own pocket scrapbooking system, called “Albums Made Easy”.
