Grab a 'stache and join the party

by Gina Lideros | January 6, 2012


Hi Ruby Rock-it fans, I hope that you have been stopping by each day to join in on our blog party!  Don't forget to leave a comment on each post as one person from all the comments will be chosen for a fabulous Ruby Rock-It prize!

Today, I have some fun props that will make your party the talk of the town! 

For my first project I created a set of blow horns that are sure to wake up the neighbors.  To make these blow horns I used papers from Ruby Rock-it's new Vintedge collection, and their banners and foiled stickers.

Next, I thought it would be fun to create some photo props for the guests to take photos with. 

First, I made a sign using a small chalkboard, banner border, and rhinestone sticker.



Then I created a selection of funny photo props that are sure to win your guests over and have everyone smiling for the camera.  Afterall, who doesn't love a silly top hat and 'stache?

What do you think?  Those photo props are super fun, right?  How would you like to win an ENTIRE Ruby Rock-it collection? Leave a comment here and you will be entered for a chance to win!

Thanks for joining us, and don't forget we're also having giveaways on our Facebook page - just like us there to get involved.

Happy new year!

Sandy's English Tea Party

by Sandy Ang | January 2, 2012


My celebration is an afternoon tea. After the excitement of Christmas and New Year, my party is a small and intimate affair. Just a gathering of close friends for quiet conversation.  

(Vintedge) Frame

Guests were greeted with these jewelled party hats. The hats signified how much I treasured their friendship. They also hinted at the pampering treats that have been prepared.   

Duo Crown with Frame

Paramount to the success of a tea party is tea. I filled handmade tea bags with different varieties of custom-blends. And tagged each bag with the ingredient list for easy selection by the guests. 

(Vintedge) Trio Tea Bags

There were also freshly baked scones and tempting sweet jams on the table. Everyone had such a lovely time !


If you like the ideas from my English tea party, leave a comment and you could win an entire Vintedge collection. Tomorrow Sarah will share her fantastic celebration ideas. Remember to come check them out.

HELLO January 2012 - let's get this party started!!


#2 2012 January Sneak Peek Nostalgia


#2 2012 vintedge cha winter sneak peek

BAM!! How's that to wake you UP this very first morning of a very new year...bring on the FUN!!! Above you now see our next peeks AND names of Ruby Rock-It ranges for Winter CHA 2012 in Anaheim, California. And boy are we ready to show this to you in person. If you are attending, we will be in booth:


We are so excited to show you the Nostalgia and Vintedge ranges. I can hardly stand it. I've been playing with it already and working on a fun make-n-take for the show.

Better still, the Ruby Rock-It Design Team has been working with it too. I am THRILLED to see what they have come up with as I asked them to keep it a surprise from even me. After all, no-one wants to show up to a party early. And a party it will be. ALL month the team has been working on designs to inspire AND challenge you with all the new ranges above. It's obvious you don't have to have the new ranges to play along but you will need to play along to win prizes at the end of each week.

I too will be posting LIVE from CHA towards the end of the month to show you the booth, the design team's AMAZING booth projects and so much more.

Put your party hat on, we look forward to seeing you!

Best wishes for an amazing week ahead.

Creative cheers,
