RRBF's New Bolt!

Are you ready Ruby Rock-it Fans to see some more of the brand new product in use?!

This month the team will be sharing our work with Bolt and Iwood.  
The Bolt collection has a sewing theme to them along with a range of fun patterns where as the iwood is just as it says .. amazing wood designs on the papers ,,, Delish!

I used mainly the patterns from the Bolt papers here to create this Crazy Love layout but some of the iwood papers crept in!

Products Used

The background is made up of strips of the Bolt paper and I used a some of the iwood too which went perfectly.  I also used some of the pink hearts and stripes paper to add a line of little hearts.

I used the die cut buttons to accent the side of the circle frame along with some of the epoxy stickers.

I cut the little ticket from the Bolt papers and added the 'Crazy Love' with the wood veneer alphabet.  The floral bling added a bit of sparkle to the page.  I could resist using the corrugated paper to the mat the photo on!!

 This has to be my favourite saying in this range  .... you do have to get out there and create your own happiness!  This is pretty much what we were doing in this photo on the layout, just goofing around and having a laugh

I used the stitching stamp along the edge of the paper as I loved the effect it gave.

Are you tempted to get to your local Ruby Rock-it stockist and get some Bolt and iwood?
We sure hope so!

Have fun

Another Becky Fleck Sketch

Hello, So do we have the January Blues going on??
Today I am going to be adding some January Blues to the post but in a happy way and here it is

Products used

A lot of gorgeous blues on this layout and both collections work so well together.  This layout was also one of the layouts I did for Becky Fleck and I followed the sketch below.

I adapted it into a 12 x 12 layout.

These little wood veneer stars have to be one of my all time favourites.  I love how the burnt edges just finish them off.  The beauty is they can be used as they are or decorated with many other mediums.

 The  die cuts in the little boys range has so many different sentiments which I love to use to add some words to a layout.  I love the expression on the face!

Another of my Ruby Rock-it favourites are the wonderful little alphabet stickers which also contain teenie words which can be used in all sorts of amazing ways.  I have used them here to add a border in the layout.

Hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by

Organised New Year


Are you like me at the beginning of a new year, promise that this year you are going to be more organised??

Well this year I thought I would make a start and decided to make a birthday book to store all my cards in.

Products Used :
RRBF Flowers

I made the book by using some paper food bags.  I trimmed down the bag to the size I wanted and then decorated the outside of each one.  Once bundled together the inside of the bag will be a pocket for birthday cards that I have made for each person whose birthday is in that month.

I also added a calendar to the front so that you can add names into each date.
The Year in Review collection has a ready made calendar sticker set in which made adding the months to each of the pockets.

Can you spot the mistake??  Really need to redo it!!

I hope I have inspired you to start on the new you!!  I'm hoping to keep this filled and cards posted on time .... well I am going to try!

Thanks for stopping by
Happy New Year

The First Christmas Layout!

Hello everyone, this month we have teamed up with Pagemaps and I thought I would share with you the layout I created with one of the sketches that were sent to me.  

Product Used :

I choose a Christmas theme for my layout.  I loved the way the sketch has brought everything together in the centre.

I love the Heritage papers from Ruby Rock-it and love that they can be used for Christmas projects.  The glittery alphabets bring a festive feel to the layout.

The beautiful wood veneer adds texture and i just loved using the foiled hearts and stripes papers too on the layout.

Becky produces amazing sketches which are just so easy to follow and allow so much creativity.  Here is the sketch so you can join in too if you'd like

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you are getting on well in your preparations for Christmas.

A little treasure

Back in the October when Autumn was beginning, we took a break up to one of our favourite places in Scotland .... The Cairngorm National park.  This place is filled with hidden treasures and while out walking we stumbled across this beautiful look out over a few lochs that we have visited before. I loved the colours of Autumn beginning to show in the valley below and the way my daughter just kept looking out while perched on top of the crags.

Products Used

I used the hearts and stars Blue Daze paper for my background as I loved the colour and the wee hearts really show how much we adore finding places like this.

The Happy Days papers and die cut sentiments fitted perfectly too along with the Fundamentals wood veneer adding again little touches of what you are wanting to say about the photo but not detracting from it.

The clear sentiment stickers are a firm favourite of mine and can be used to add simple statements.  Here I used some to border the edge of one of the corners.  They are so simple to add to any of your crafts.

Thanks for stopping by today
Have a good one

Foiled Stripes and Sweet Hearts!

Have you seen the gorgeous papers from Ruby Rock-it's Bella! Hearts and Stripes collection?  I have been creating with them this week along with the Happy Days paper range to create some thank you cards.

Products Used 

These lush papers are double sided and on one side you get a paper filled with cute little hearts while the other side shines with foil stripes in the same colour.  This next card 'Thanks Berry Much' shows you the 'Lime' version

I really love this shape of heart and they are similar to the little wooden hearts in the Fundamental packs.  The stripes give a nice shiny border to the bottom of the card.

For the next card I wanted to show you how gorgeous the foiled stripes are so used them as my main background for the card.  The 'Vanilla' foiled strips and the 'Sapphire' work so well together.  Who doesn't like blue and brown together!?

This next card uses some of the left over pieces I had cut to make the other cards.  The papers tear beautifully leaving a white edge which gives the papers are lovely layered edge. I used some of the lime paper to die cut some leaves to go behind the tag.

I do think you'll love these papers when you get a chance to get some!  We'd love to see your creations and what you create with them.

Have a great day!

Diana's Dispenser Box and RRBF Meet

Good morning!  
With Christmas just around the corner I've been starting to make some little gifts for people.  

I had seen a beautiful box over on {Diana Clew's blog} and had wanted to make it myself, psst she has a wonderful picture with the measurements on.

Products Used

The little owls on the branch are from the Happy Days 3D stickers and add some nice dimension to the front.

I used the Bella! Paper Floral flowers which were flat when they came out of the package so I carefully folded each one down the centre and scrunched them to give depth.

I used the beautiful Hearts and Stripes paper to make the box as I loved the way the foiled paper shines through the bottom.

This could be filled with so many things that will just pop out the bottom and give anyone a nice treat this Christmas!

Happy making this holiday season!
