Dear, Dad

Hello Ruby Rock-It fans! We are having alot of fun here creating some inspiration for you, in honor of all the wonderful and amazing Dad's in our lives!

Here's a few featuring our beautiful iWood range!

The foundation of the card is one of my favorites from the iWood range!  I've layered in some Bolt and Hearts and Stripes papers, and then some more iWood in strips along the bottom!

A simple DAD with our lovely wood veneers was perfect for the sentiment, as it is just that.  Our Dad is full of heart.

The top left is filled with a few stars from our iWood papers, along with some of our fabulous droplets!

This next card makes me smile!  My Dad loves flowers, of all kinds.  So, I layered in some fun shapes from punches of our iWood paper to create this flower card for him!

Our Fundamentals stickers and wood veneers are a perfect way to showcase our sentiment!

Father's Day in America is coming up quickly & today I'm sharing with you a Father's Day mixed media card with Bella's awesome iWood collection. 1_iwood

These papers couldn't be more perfect for masculine projects. I paired them up with Ruby Rock-It's Kraft Corrugated Cardboard & this is what I came up with: Dad CardChristine Santos

Here's a recap of the iWood papers I layered on the card: [gallery size="medium" ids="6648,6646,6647"] IMG_9492

I've used the lighter wood print of the Version 8.0 paper as the base of the card, then added some layers of the Kraft Corrugated Cardboard specialty paper. IMG_9493

The next layer on top is the colored wood print of Version 6.0 paper, & on top is the Version 4.0 paper. For the dad word, I've simply traced the Faded Empire Chipboard Alphas on the same Version 4.0 (using the opposite side) paper then cut them out. IMG_9495

To finish the card I've added some inks, mists, stain & other mediums on the different layers & altered chipboard cogs. Thanks for stopping by & do check out the iWood collection hereCheers, key

Father's Day fun!

by Beckie Dreyer | June 2, 2016
Father's Day fun!
Hello!! It's hard to believe that summer is nearly upon us and the weather has finally warmed up!  At this time of year our thoughts always turn to Father's/Dad's/Pop's or what ever these special men in your life may be called.
Today I am here to share with you some inspiration for Father's day with a little gift and card made using the Boy Mini Theme set.
The 'Boy' Mini Theme set has some really cool greeting on the papers and some brilliant little die cuts too.  I saw an opportunity to use some of the iwood papers too to create these masculine gifts.
  The iwood paper is used here to create a banner on the back of the card to break up the black card a bit.  There is a piece of the collection which has lovely hues of blue on it as well as the brown colour.
I cut out one of the greetings and then built up around it using the die cuts.
The beer bottle has some of the iwood paper wrapped around the centre and then I used the 'Boy's papers to create a label for the front.  The wood veneer products work fabulously for this.

Hope you have a great time creating for your father's and don't forget to look out for the Bella! Iwood collection at your local craft supplier!

My Happy!

by Alicia Barry | May 28, 2016
My Happy!
I love the bright and happy collection called Happy Days, so when I was assigned a free choice project this month, I jumped at the chance to pull this one out and have a play. I always seem to be short on some general occasion cards when I need them in a pinch, so this range is perfect for just that. 

These cards are created mostly with left over pieces from other projects, combined with some die cut frames. I usually use lots of foam dots in between the layers to create dimension. 
 I used some paint dots on each one to accentuate the embellishments.

Graduation, what a milestone!

by Teresa Horner | May 26, 2016


Hi everyone and I am so happy that you stopped by for a little Ruby Rock-it inspiration today.  It's graduation time so i decided to use some of the gorgeous papers from the "Graduation Day" Mini themed set.  It has lots of beautiful prints with grad hats and  and of course die cuts that go perfectly.

I have a work friend who is graduating this week and i wanted to make something special for her to
remember this amazing accomplishment in her life.  The stickers for this have such great sentiments on each of them and it all went together really easy just layering lots of pieces of the papers behind the photo and then adding some stenciled pin dots on the top and bottom to give it a little more texture and tie it all together nicely.  The little gold stars come in the die cuts so that was a nice little touch since she is going into a television and movie career.

Here is a good closeup of the 3D embellishment.  It's so pretty with the chalkboard and gold mixed together and i added the diploma and a few of the Life Documented stickers around it too.

And here is just another quick closeup of the layering.  Each side of the papers had such pretty prints and they go so great together.  Since there is pink in the picture i added a small piece of the pink stripe and splattered some pink paint to make it go together better.  
And i even made a card to go with the framed page for her.  I think the sentiment fit so well with
all the amazing things she wants to do in her life so i just used it with a few bits of the paper matted
with white and black cardstock and added a bow on the side.  It was super easy to make.  I hope that all my projects today gave you a little inspiration to make up a few things of your own for a grad in your life.  Enjoy and have a really great day!
Thanks so much for stopping by and below i put my shopping list to make it easy for you!
Supplies needed:
Black and White Rhinestones
Black and white cardstock
white ribbon
glass bead glitter
pink paint

Remember When...

by Beckie Dreyer | May 21, 2016
Remember When...

Hello, this month we have been celebrating mums and today I wanted to share a layout that I made in honour of a beautiful 'Godmum' to my girls.  She is such a fun loving lady and just brings sunshine where ever she is.  She makes us giggle and the girls just love her to bits!

This photo was taken just after she had surprised the them and it was a brilliant day.  Needless to say I used one of my favourite ranges 'Happy Days' again to create the layout.

I used a paper punch to create the scalloped edge and then added some of the droplets in different sizes along the edge to give it a 3D effect.  The die cuts added some dimension to by adding them with foam pads.

Another thing that the Happy Days collection is great for is fussy cutting, so many little this to cut out like the singing bird in the picture above.

Another addition to the layout with the wood veneer is the clear wording that stick easily on to your projects without taking over the whole layout.

These are memories that will be treasured forever!
Have a great day, and thanks for making Ruby Rock-It a part of your creative day!
