Ruby Rock-It Get Hitched Cards

Hello Ruby Rock-It fans!  Are you loving all these new releases!?  
The new wedding ranges are just beautiful and I am really really enjoying working with them.  Today I am here to share with you some cards that I made for our booth in CHA with the Get Hitched collection.

It's not just the classic golds or the sunshine yellows that adorn these papers but the wood phrase that are shown on the 'Love' card.  They have to be my favourite!!

The 3D stickers are brilliant for adding to the cards to give it a bit of a lift.  The glitter on them also adds some sparkle too.

The four new collections not only come in  12 x 12 papers but there is a perfect little pack of mini papers which are ideal for card makers.  I have also used some of the new Fundamental Wedding Vaneer on this card below

Happy New Year!

Yes I know that it's the middle of January but I haven't had a chance to come on here.

You see I have been away ... far away! 

I have been enjoying spending lots of time chilling and surfing at places like this ....

and drinking copious amounts of these ...

One of my highlights was getting to visit the Ruby Rock-it head quarters.  I was so great to see where it all was happens and to meet the owners of this fantastic company I am so lucky to be working for.  

Seeing all the new product that was shown at CHA was fab and though I love it all I really can't wait for 'Happy Days' to create with.

So that is where I have been.  
As the new year begins I know I am blessed with so many things, big and small.
I am now beginning to wonder what 2015 has in store for me ........

Love me :)

So it is that time of year when we get ready to say goodbye to the old year and hello to the new one. 
I am here to post the last post of 2014 on the Ruby Rock-It blog and today I am sharing a peek of one of the **BRAND NEW** ranges that is going to be launch at CHA in 2015 .... 

Here is the romantic Rustic Charm collection, isn't it gorgeous!?!  The pastel colour palette and the soft sheen on them are just stunning and there are some beautiful glitter papers in the small pack.  
I made these in to crackers ready to be filled with small gifts.  I love making your own crackers as you can personalise them for each of your recipients.  
Can you imagine one of these for each wedding guest!?!  Amazing!

Ruby Rock-It Countdown to Christmas Part 2

Ho Ho Ho!  
It's Christmas eve and I am sure the little elves are busy getting last minute things together.
I thought today I would give them a helping hand and create a fun little table decoration to spread a little cheer!

Products Used :

I just love the traditional colours of Ruby Rock-It's 25 Days of Christmas Range and all the embellishments that come with it.  I think the Candy Cane border stickers has to be my favourite.  
I cut out some of the poinsettias from the paper and layered them up with foam pads to create a 3D flower.

Around the base I bent the tree trucks so that they could be tucked under the base and this allowed them to stand up straight.  The little star on the top of the house in from the Freckled Fawn November OhDeerMe Kit.

The top is decorate with white pom poms and I added a LED tea light in the centre for added sparkle.  I cut some of the stags/reindeer's from the sticker border and added them between the pom poms.

It's now time to head off and make sure everything is ready for Santa to visit,
I wish you a very Happy Christmas 
and hope you have a fun time

Ruby Rock-It Countdown To Christmas Part 1

Good morning everyone I hope you are beginning to feel festive with the Countdown to Christmas!
Today I have a little way of jazzing up your fairy lights and if you are anything like me you probably have loads!! 

NB : I understand that the LED lights are better to use and these should never be left unattended!

These little boxes are soooo easy to make.  Just take a square of paper, do a little bit of folding here and there and voila ... paper lanterns !!

You can find how to make these little water bombs (yes that is what they are called) {HERE}

I used 4 x 4 inch paper and made these, you can choose what ever size you like but do remember that the smaller the paper the more difficult it will be to fold it.  I was tickled by the way you blew into it and it just popped out into the box.

When the box was made up I decorated each of the fronts with some of the 25 Days of Christmas Border Stickers and some punched holly leaves from the paper.  

To attach them to the lights you just gently push each bulb into the wee hole and wait till it's dark enough to turn them on to see you handy work.

Here are a couple of photos of them lit up (sorry they are not the best pics!!)

Have fun creating for Christmas

Every Moment Counts

'Every moment counts' it really does!
Today Ruby Rock-it fans I am here to share with you a little 'belated' birthday gift I made for a friend of mine.  
I used the Heritage collection and teamed it with some fabulous product from Freckled Fawn.

This started life as a blank 'b' which I painted with some acrylic paint down the sides before sticking some paper to the front and the back.  The script 'b' is a lower case and looks fiddly to cut out but if you make sure your craft knife is nice and sharp you shouldn't have any problems.

The DT were sent the gorgeous November Ohdeerme embellishment kit from Freckled Fawn and it was packed full of some amazing things.  I loved the little wallet it all came in and the stickers and wood shapes are just gorgeous .... and the felt doily, need I say more! *love*

Kiss The Cook

Recenty I was asked to create some thing for Creating Keepsakes blog and was so excited when it was also published on the Papercrafts blog!! Here is the project I shared which I made using Ruby Rock-It's Country Cookin range.  The new Country Cookin is filled with a rich retro colour palette and the embellishments all about cooking, it's just perfect to set your creative taste buds on fire!

Lace and Ribbon

Mannequins are so much fun to alter and there are many different styles to be found.  This one has a solid body and came with a pattern on it so I decided to paint the top half of it with cream paint first.

The following measurements are based on the mannequin above, you will need adjust for yours.

I cut a 4 x 12" piece from the Country Cookin Floral paper.  On one of the short sides mark at 2 " and 3.75" on the long side.  Cut between the lines and repeat on the other side so your paper will look like this

Place some double tape around the edges of the as shown and then add some ribbon over the edges.

Flip it over and then add a thin line of glue around the edge before adding some of the brown twine.

Cut two 2 x 6" pieces and one 2 x 3" pieces from the Country Cookin Gingham paper.  Ink and glue the smaller piece to the centre of the mannequin.
Punch one edge of the two longer pieces and ink.  Trim with some Bella! bling and add to the top.

Wrap the skirt around the body and some lace around the 'waist', this will hide any joins that maybe showing.

To make the apron I cut the largest Spellbinder Scallop Circles in the County Cookin Splotch paper, inked and pierced the edges.  I then added some brown ribbon on the top and trimmed off the excess before tying it around the waist.  I then added a little pocket and add the wood vaneer spoon in it.  

I then finished the mannequin by adding a mixture of the Country Cookin diecuts and to top it all off I used the chef hat one the top.

There are so many wonderful things that can be made with this collection like a recipe book filled with your grandma's favourite foods or use the patterns on the reverse sides to scrap your everyday photos!

Thank you for allowing me to share my project with you today
