Mother's Day


Today  I am here to share some inspiration for mother's day.  I have used one of my favourite collections, Happy Days, to create the cards.   I just love the fresh fun colours and designs of this collection.

This is a simple card to make and is a stepper version.  Cutting out the family of owls I added them along the fold of the card to give it a look as if they are perched on the edge of a tree.




This next card is made using all the little left over pieces that I have saved from other projects.  There was a lot of fussy cutting in this one but I really enjoyed creating this card.



Finally this card uses a die cut butterfly and a greeting cut from the 'Happy Days' paper.  A few left over strips of paper adds some colour to the back of the card.

Thanks for taking the time to stop, 
we hope you have found lots of inspiration to start your off today!

A little lantern light


I am so loving that the clocks have gone forward and that the evenings are drawing out meaning more time for chilling outside.  

Today I have a little lantern to share with you which I made with the Faded Empire and iWood collections to help shed a little light on my outside table.


Product Used
Fundamental Flowers
WoW Embossing Powders

First of all I create a rectangle shape in the iWood papers before cutting out some apertures.  I wanted to have a frosted effect on the 'glass' so I used some tracing paper.  
Using the Faded Empire stamps, Versa mark ink and WoW white embossing powder I created a border along the top edge.  


I then used the keyhole stamp and add this to the centre, but instead of the white embossing powder I used a clear one so that it looked like a watermark.  I then added them to the sections on the inside of the panels.



I assembled the lantern together and then decorated the base with some different flowers cut out from the Faded Empire papers mixing and matching the colour scheme.


I love the mellow lighting it gives off and think I'll be making some more to add all around outside .... as long as the rain holds off!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by

Spring Birthdays

Hello, it's Beckie here to share with you some cards that I made with the beautiful Faded Empire range.  


Products Used



I made this a gatefold card as I like this style of card for a base.  I used some spellbinders dies to create the central piece.  I loved the little bird cage in the Empire die cut pack so wanted to incorporate it into the card.



The Empire collection has a lovely vintage feel to me and I wanted to show this in this card.  I loved one of the Empire stamps which I have used as a backing for the 'Happy Birthday' which is shown in the picture above.  I also scrunched the rose die cut to give it some texture.



For this card I used to gold alphabet and decided to make a bold statement on the front!  Teamed with some of the sentiments from the mini alphabet packs the card makes an instant impact on what you are saying!!

Thank for stopping by today and make sure to check out your local stockists for a many fantastic ranges,

Faded Empire and Mother's Day


Spring is filling the air once again and with that in the UK means that we have a very special day come up in the next few days.  
This week I am here to share with you a layout using the new Faded Empire to celebrate this wonderful day .....

Mother' Day


Products Used

The muted tones of the Faded Empire are so soft looking and the floral designs are fabulous for your mother and daughter pictures.


I 'fussy' cut around the lady on one of the pages and added it to another sheet.  I then used it as a background for the photo and embellishments.


The large gold letters in the range mix perfectly with the mini gold alphabet.  You can just about see one of the stamps I have used to accent the page near the corner of the photo.


There are so many beautiful 3D die cuts and wood veneer embellishments to adorn your crafty creations that I am sure you are going to LOVE the whole range.  It also coordinates beautifully with the iWood range.

I hope you have some beautiful pictures of a beautiful mother that you can find to scrap book with
Have a wonderful day

Hello!  I have been creating again with the Bolt and this time I decided to alter a tin that I had lying around along with some of the 'gifts' found in the Christmas crackers and turn it into a little gift.


I drew around the outside of the tin so I had a background to work on.  I added some of the tape measure which I cut from the paper and also one of the spool tops.  The sizing chart is from the die cut pack and was brilliant as a backing.  I finished off the top with one of the chipboard buttons.


On the inside of the tin I decorated it with some of the papers and added one of the wood veneer plaques to the inside of the lid.


I made a little pin holder using one of the die cuts.  I added a folded piece of paper underneath along with some felt.  I used the little alphabets to add 'pins' to it.


When it was finished I added all the bits and bobs in and it is now ready to be placed in a handbag for little emergencies!!

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
