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:

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

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

 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:

 The trims were also from the August Moon collection

 I love the Polka Dot Vellum in clouds and hearts!

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:

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!

Sephrenia Mini-Album Tips

by Sandy Ang | April 15, 2012



Hi it's Sandy. I post my August Moon Chipboard Book last week. You can check it out here. Today I'm sharing tips and tricks with vellum and bling that I used on that project.



Layering is a hot technique right now and layering with Fundamentals Vellum and Transparency couldn't be easier. Everything is in a soft grey so you can create a subtle effect without worrying about colour-matching. Here I framed my photo with a tight check pattern. Then added the "B-sides" of two vellum papers beneath.



Our new Bella Bling comes in fun shapes like crowns and large flowers. You can use them to create definition and dimension on floral papers. I simply cut the Bling shapes to fit into my flower center or an individual petal on the pattern paper.


My final tip is about creating an alpha banner that will add movement and texture to your project. Start with a base layer of trim or ribbon. Next tie short lengths of thread onto your alphas and glue them down onto the base. The threads peaking out make it look like the alphas were hand-sewn which is very a popular look right now.


Supplies : August Moon (Chipboard Book, Trimmings, Bouquet, Poppy), Bella Bling (Crowns, Small Borderlines, Vintage Floral, Stickers BWR54), Fundamentals (Doily Vellum Circles Vellum, Fancies FNF10, Fancies FNF41, Tags FNT04, Birthday Rub-Ons, Sparkles FN66), silver ball chain & metal charms

Creating with August Moon

by Keelyyowler | April 14, 2012



Have you discovered the wonderful "August Moon" collection from Ruby Rock-It?  The latest addition is the August Moon chipboard mini-album. The wonderful size and beautiful design of this chipboard album makes it perfect for many themes.  I chose to create an album about my "everyday kind of wonderful"...being a mom. 

I incorporated lots of items from the "August Moon" collection to decorate the cover of my album--patterned paper, glittered paper, tags, felt butterflies, and self-adhesive pearls.

I love creating a romantic, vintage look with lots of distress ink, lace, twine, and layering.  The inside of my album will include some of my favorite family photos, quotes, and stories.

Be sure to visit the blog each day this month as the design team reveals "August Moon" inspiration ideas.  I'll be sharing my complete album soon.

HUGE thanks in advance for your patience.

Best wishes for a lovely weekend ahead.

Creative cheers,

Sephrenia Mini-Album

by Sandy Ang | April 13, 2012



Sandy posting today. I'm excited to show you how I paired the August Moon Chipboard Book with our latest products : Vellum and Bling.



I made this mini-album for my cousin. In her photos she's wrapped in a scarf and ear muffs. To create a chilly ambiance in the album, I relied on the cold glitter of rhinestone bling and the frosty shine of the white Sparkles alphabets.



Several elements were repeated in my album pages to create a sense of coherence. For example I matt all the photos with multiple layers of vellum and transparency. A length of beige trim was added to 'hold' the photo layers together. Finally I used a couple of tag ends to create a visual triangle on each page.


I'm impressed by how versatile the Fundamentals Birthday Rub-Ons are. I was able to select many phrases from the pack for the journalling on my album and it's matte-gold colour complements the August Moon palette really well.

If you like the look of my album, come back on Sunday. I'll be posting close-up photos and sharing some tips and tricks I used.


Supplies : August Moon (Chipboard Book, Trimmings, Bouquet, Poppy), Bella Bling (Crowns, Small Borderlines, Vintage Floral, Stickers BWR54), Fundamentals (Doily Vellum Circles Vellum, Fancies FNF10, Fancies FNF41, Tags FNT04, Birthday Rub-Ons, Sparkles FN66), silver ball chain & metal charms

Never Forget...

by Jodi Wilton | April 11, 2012


Happy Thursday everyone! This month we were asked to create a mini ablum with the new chipboard album in the August Moon collection.  I simply adored this album, and loved how the pages were already covered with the beautiful print from August Moon. It took awhile for me to figure out what I wanted the topic of my mini to be about.  I have been wanting to create a mini about my sister who tragically passed away almost 5 years ago, and I believed I was ready to create and heal a bit more.  Here is the cover of the mini:


For my mini I used a variety of products but focused most on the beautiful vellum and the sparkly bling.I also used the Vintedge Collection pack.

Designer tip:  Punch out some butterflies, fold them in half, and apply a thin layer of glue. Your butterflies will appear as if they are flying. Add some bling in the middle of each butterfly for some added detail.


I also made a spiral flower out of the vellum:


My first page in the mini:


Page two:


Designer Tip: you can make a butterfly trail with the bling.

Page three:


Thanks for letting me share a project that was near and dear to my heart. I still have more to share, so stay tuned until later this month... Happy Scrapping!   --- Jodi

Mother's Day mini with August Moon...

by Carrie Walz | April 11, 2012


Hello everyone...happy middle of the week! I hope you all are enjoying the little sneaks of all our August Moon minis. I am really enjoying them all. I think it is really neat to see eveyone's different take on this wonderful line. With Mother's Day sneaking up on us, I decided to make something for my mom. I wanted to take making a card into a whole new direction. I took a poem and broke it into verses and incorporated them on each page of the mini album creating a mini album card. This is just the first half of my mini, I will be showing it in it's completion at the end of the month...hope you all come back to see it!








Thanks for stopping by,

"Signs of Spring" with August Moon mini-album

by JJ Sobey | April 10, 2012


Hi Ruby Rock-it Fans!  JJ here, sharing the first part of my August Moon Chipboard mini book.


I've been taking pictures of flowers, etc. in our yard for the past few years, just enjoying the signs of spring.  The August Moon mini-album seemed to be an ideal spot to collect a few of these pictures.

Of course, as you've been seeing from the rest of the team, the Fundamentals vellum line pairs beautifully with August Moon.  I was delighted to discover that the vellum punches well - it has enough body to not get chewed up - even in a detailed punch.


I used a flower punch on this page - the vellum worked great in that too.


Instead of longer strips of the Bling Borders, I cut them apart to spread around the page.


Vellum looks great with torn edges, so that's what I did with any pieces I wasn't punching - I really like how it looks layered:


I will be showing more of this album later in the month - thanks for visiting!

JJ Sobey
