Happy Spring!!

by Account Deleted | April 26, 2012


Good morning Ruby Rock-It Fans!! It's always nice to finally get outside when the nice weather arrives. I still love to scrap indoors even though it's nice outside. When I can't get outside I love to scrap things that remind me of the nice weather and of the activities I would be doing if I was outside.  I have a few fun cards to share with you today that remind me of Spring. The first card is sucha great card for a good friend or somebody who is going thru a rough spot.  Not only are the colors cheerful but the message is inspiring. I used the Paper Doll Collection for this card.



This has to be one of my favorite cards!  I made this card using the Paper Doll collection also.  It's makes such a fun card for birthday's or just to wish someone a great day! 

This card was made with the Paper Boy collection!  With the gear patterns and the stars, how could you help but think this card is all boy!  Add a little dimension with some Foam Squares and you've got a card that will cheer up any guy!  With Father's Day right around the corner, this would make a great cad for Dad!


I have one last card to share.  May is coming up on us soon and if you're making a card for mom, the August Moon collection is perfect for a beautiful card for that special mom in your life.


I hope I've inspired you to create a few cards today!!  Thanks for stopping by the Ruby Rock-It

Never Forget Album- Part Two

by Jodi Wilton | April 25, 2012


Hi everyone! Jodi here today to share with the second part of the mini I created with the August Moon Chipboard Album. If you missed the first part of my album, you can see the first few pages: here. Here are the next few pages in my album:


I used the bling to creat the string of the banners! Love how easy you can manipulate the bling!


 My sister was the happiness I have seen her in these pictures. Designer Tip:  The orignal colors in the photo were very bright! Don't be afraid to edit them, to make them more muted or black and white to go with the project you are creating.


I decided to make a pocket with the vellum, and add poloraids of all of her friends. 



This was the last picture taken of my sister, from her phone, I thought it was the perfect way to end this album.

The August Moon and Vintedge Collection were the perfect combination to create this album, and it will be something that I will cherish forever. Thanks for letting me share. Keep on crafting...

Mother's Day mini with August Moon...Part 2

by Carrie Walz | April 24, 2012


Good morning! Aren't these August Moon minis simply amazing! I love how each one of us saw a completely different view of this line. If you remember, earlier this month I showed you the start of my mini that I chose to take a poem and use each verse for a page. I am making this for my mother for Mother's Day...well here is the last two pages in this project.



I also have a little tip for you...while I was using up all of this wonderful Bella Bling, I happen to notice the backing that the bling was adhered to....

It was beautiful script and print! I decided since it was so beautiful and printed on a very nice thicker quality backing to use it in my mini!
I also used some old jewelry pieces that came off of some of my daughters old hair clips. Just goes to show you that what might be headed for the trash can easily become a beautiful treasure!

Thanks for stopping by,

"Signs of Spring" mini-album - part 2

by JJ Sobey | April 23, 2012


Hi Ruby Rock-it fans!  JJ here again - this time with more from my August Moon mini-album "Signs of Spring".


I cut several little 'flags' of both the patterned paper and vellum to create a border under the photo.  A punched strip of vellum helped to pull them all together.



I really love how easy this vellum punches - it's just the right thickness, which means I don't have to worry about it tearing in the punch.


It's easy to customize the length of the Bling! borders, giving you more possibilities for placement.


I used a few Fundamentals flowers as a floral border to my photo.  Just cut them in half, and tuck them in!


I made a couple of vellum leaves for this page:


I simple hand-cut the shapes and scrunched them for texture - easy, peasy!


Thanks for visiting!

Some August Moon & Vellum Love...

by Erin Yamabe | April 20, 2012


Hello and Happy Friday crafters!  Hope you have had a wonderful week, and that your weather has been better like ours has in the Bay Area!

Have you been loving our DT's gorgeous creations with our August Moon mini albums this month?  I have a peek inside mine for you today...

Here's the cover once more:


And a few pages, along with some close ups...


For this page, I chose to create a little envelope...I added a diecut of our new vellum, and paired it with some negative butterfly images from our embossed cardstock.


The inside of the envelope has some pretty bling right along the vellum strip [this is a gorgeous pairing, I need to keep this vellum on hand, my new favorite thing!], and I created a little tag for my friend to journal on, or add photos inside the pocket.


And on this page, I simply wanted the doily vellum to shine...

Wishing you all a very nice weekend ahead!  Thanks for stopping by!

First I took some bamboo skewers found in my kitchen pantry, and a banner from the Nostalgia collection.

Trim 1c

August Moon Mini and Black and Whites

by rebeccak | April 18, 2012


Once I really got to work on my August Moon mini, I knew which photos I would use. I had printed up a stack of my favorite photos from last year all in Black and White. I knew they would look awesome in this vintage looking mini:

Rk cover

 I used lots of pink and white Bella Bling to add some texture and shine to the already gorgeous August Moon collection.

Rk 1

 Paper flowers, pearls and the new vellum papers punched into butterflies seemed to fit right in:

Rk 3

 The only bright colors I used were a paper heart border from Paper Girl which I throught added a fun touch to the pastel color scheme:

Rk 4

 The trims were also from the August Moon collection

Rk 7


Rk 9

 I love the Polka Dot Vellum in clouds and hearts!

Rk 11
The vellum has a nice thick consistency and punches work on it very well without any tearing. I also used the vellum and August Moon collection for a quick thank you card:

Rk rr thank you
Stay tuned for more August Moon and vellum inspiration!

Sweet baby mini album using August Moon

by Amanda Jones | April 17, 2012


Hi Ruby Rock-it fans! It's Amanda here and I'm returning today with the rest of the album I shared with you at the beginning of the month.


If you remember, I was making a baby album for my brother and his wife who are expecting their first baby, a girl, in June. I used mostly the August Moon collection along with vellum and a few other bits and pieces :)

Inside 1

Inside the cover I left some space for baby details, and created a vellum pocket filled with tags for them to write notes on.

I wanted to share a little tip here too - I usually use a vellum tape runner to adhere my vellum onto projects. But this vellum is so luscious and thick that I just used regular wet craft glue and it does not show through. Much cheaper than vellum adhesive and it also gives a stronger hold so that my vellum stays put!

Inside 2
Inside 3

Plenty of girly bling and shapes cut using my Silhouette.

Inside 4
Inside 5

I used white card to make spaces for them to add their photos, and made sure not to glue things down which were overlapping the picture areas.

Inside 6
Inside 7

I can't wait to hand it over and see it filled up with gorgeous pictures of my niece!

Thanks for visiting us today!

Amanda x
