August Moon is perfect for baby photos, too!

by JJ Sobey | March 9, 2012


Hi Ruby Rock-it fans - JJ here again.  The soft colours in the August Moon collection are lovely for a number of themes, but my first thought was to use them for this baby picture of my daughter.


I added a bit of sewing, and lots of the lace trim from the collection.


Some of the flowers and letters from the Fundamentals line work perfectly with August Moon.


Of course, August Moon has it's own gorgeous pearls and cardstock stickers.  I die cut some flourishes from the glitter cardstock sheet, for a little more shine.


Thanks for visiting!

August Moon Cards

by Becky Olsen | March 7, 2012


Is everyone enjoying the beautiful parade of August Moon projects? I know I am so inspired by all of the gorgeousness! (if that isn't a word it should be!)

The first card I want to share is a fussy cut floral all occasion card. I love to make all occasion cards, they come in so handy when I have an unexpected event, need a quick card to brighten someones day or a birthday that might have slipped my mind...

It happens, and having a few different styles to choose from in any given circumstance is sure to guarantee an appreciative and happy recipient  :o)

Floral Fussy Cut

Distress the edges and give it a rip, crimp a piece of paper (or accordion fold) and tuck under the rip. Trim another piece and distress that as well, adding little pieces of the same paper for a sweet peek-a-boo surprise. Fussy cut a flower and adhere with dimensional foam and of course I had to add those sweet little butterflies with a pearl in the center.

Patchwork Butterfly

Also, cards are a great way to use up your beloved scraps! I have been working on my project for my post later in the month and had some great scraps that I just could not bear to throw away. So I pieced and trimmed them to fit a card top and stitched with a bright green to get a wonderful rustic, quilted look. The butterfly sticker was powdered and a dimensional foam square adheres it in place. I then added the lustrous August Moon pearls to the butterfly body for extra dimension.

Cards are a wonderful way to share a bit of yourself with those you care about, and this August Moon collection is sure to provide loads of inspiration to do just that.

Happy Card Crafting!

Rockin it with August Moon!

by Gina Lideros | March 6, 2012


Hi Ruby Rock it fans,

Gina here with you today and I would like to share a recent layout that I made with our new August Moon range. This collection has lots of pale pinks, creams, and blues, and yummy silver glitter cardstock.  Perfect for elegant occasions and projects.  I thought that I would add in some dark grey cardstock to really make the colors pop.

 Everyday soul sisters layout:

for the background paper, I used a dark grey embossed cardstock from our Bella! collection, and I rubbed sandpaper over the embossed pattern to really make the texture stand out.

I just love this pink mini pom pom trim that is part of the August Moon collection.  Thanks for taking the time to stop by the Ruby Rock it blog today.  Have a rockin' week!

Absolutely Lovely August Moon

by rebeccak | March 4, 2012


Ruby Rock-It's August Moon is so pretty, frilly, soft and romantic. Absolutely perfect for black and white photos. To add another vintage touch I matted the photos on some of the b side of the August Moon Crocus paper cut into a Polaroid shape.

Rk Everyday

and hung them like a banner along with the lovely August Moon Tag Set from the super sweet pom pom trim.

A few of the August Moon Cardstock Stickers and pearls add even more pretty touches.

I used more of the same on a friendship card which I made long enough to accomodate the August Moon Chip Title:

Rk RR forever friends
We have many more August Moon projects for the rest of the month, so keep coming back for more August Moon inspiration!

August Moon pretties!

by Amanda Jones | March 4, 2012


Oh, how I love the subtle colours and pretty designs of the August Moon collection! Each new line from Ruby Rock-it has something new and different from the last. I'm constantly amazed and delighted!

6 lo full

I have been holding on to this picture for a while. It's a pic of myself with my brother on my 6th birthday, playing with my new toy cars :) Because of the age of the photo, the colours are very faded PLUS I'm wearing a pink dress and my brother is wearing a faded blue shirt. I never seemed to find the right product for it.

6 lo detail

I paired August Moon with some Sugar Candy cardstock and a few elements from the Fundamentals line (such as the lace paper tape, glittered chipboard alphas and ribbon) and finally got that picture scrapped!

I then used some of the scraps from my page to make a quick card...

Heartfelt thanks card full

I love the August Moon trims, and that fabulous glittered shaped cardstock! It added just the right amount of pizazz to the card. I also added a felt butterfly, gem and rub-on from Fundementals.

Heartfelt thanks card detail

I hope you'll come and visit us regularly in March for a month filled with beautiful August Moon projects from our amazing team! Thanks for visiting today!

Hello everyone! Sarah here today. Isn't everyone jazzed about the big news about Ruby Rock-It, Bella!, and Fundamentals being merged? And the amazing Rachel Carlson being promoted? If you missed the news, you must go read about it HERE.

To go along with all of the fabulous-ness that is going around Ruby Rock-It these days, they have even launched a brand new collection!!! August Moon is a soft line with amazing florals and simple design.

August Moon LO 1

I have so many pictures of my mom's new little pooch, Macy... I just keep making her layouts!! And this picture was PERFECT for August Moon!! I used August Moon papers, stickers, borders, and tags. I mixed in a little bit of the Fundamentals line too (the pearls, the tiny alphas, and ribbon).

August Moon LO 2

Isn't this collection so beautiful!? Make sure your LSS is a part of the Ruby Rock-It revolution :)

Until next time... Have a wonderful Saturday!

Hugs! Sarah

Kicking Off August Moon Month

by Sandy Ang | March 2, 2012


Sandy here excited to show how I used the latest Ruby Rock-It collection : August Moon. It's a romantic range full of botanical designs in a soft pastel palette. The delicate pinks and powder blues are paired with a hint of silver to emulate the effect of moonlight.


August Moon Mirror 1


Here a 10"x10" mirror from Ikea was transformed into a shabby chic decorative item. After I decoupaged the front with a subtle lattice pattern, I added fussy-cut elements (my favourite way to use romantic roses) around the edges. Lastly a butterfly, a bird, some label stickers and trim to finish.



Next I made a card using the Tag Set. Eight tags (two per design) were arranged in two rows. The joint was concealed behind layers of border sticker and trim. To give the card a bit of sparkle, I added rhinestones from the new Bella Bling collection.

August Moon card


Hope you'll be inspired to come back every day this month as our designers showcase this beautiful new collection.
