Let's try this again...*LIVE FROM CHA*...a FEW pictures so far...

by Ruby Rock-It Bella! Fundamentals | January 30, 2012


I thought I would get 'some' photos up before we head out for dinner. Peeks of the AMAZING banners that the design team made to hang on the AMAZING gazebo that Joanna found in Australia. What a GENIUS idea she had to hang banners on. Her vision came to life and everyone has been enjoying this focal feature of the booth. We've had many compliments on it.














Heading out to dinner soon. Come back tomorrow for more updates and photos.

So glad to have all of you along on this tour with us.

Creative cheers,

Vintedge Inspiration

by Keelyyowler | January 27, 2012


Welcome to the final day of Vintedge inspiration. Keely here. I hope you have enjoyed all of the wonderful DT creations this week.  I love the great patterns and embellishments in this collection.  It is perfect for any occasion.  I created this layout about my daughter, Jennah, and her happy, positive attitude.


I love the fun journaling strips that coordinate with each collection. 


I created this masculine layout with the Vintedge collection and fun, Ruby Rock-It chipboard pieces.  The great heart patterned paper was just perfect for a Valentine's Day layout.  The jeweled crown in the Vintedge collection is such a fun embellishment.


And, lastly, a fun anniversary card for my hubby.  My inspiration for this card was the sneak peek for this collection that you can see: HERE.  I love the music sheet patterned paper with the contrast of the bright colors in the rest of the collection.

Don't forget, today is the last day to enter this week's challenge:

Create anything you like, use whatever products make you happy, just take your inspiration from the ad - be it colours, shapes, design, images - whatever pops out at you and makes you want to create!   Post it online, leave us a link here by 11:59pm MST, Friday night  (and don't forget to tell us what inspired your creation - we want to know!).  We'll announce the lucky winner on Saturday.  GOOD LUCK!!!

The possibilities are endless with Vintedge!

by Carrie Walz | January 24, 2012


Okay everyone...we told you we had challenges for you and this week is no different. This week JJ gave us the challenge to use the wonderful Vintedge line in different ways to show you the versatility of it. She also gave us the challenge to use the sneak peek ad for inspiration. Here are just a few things I have come up with....

My first layout I wanted to use these cute photos of my daughter playing around with her new hat she got at Christmas. The grungy white and black background paper which is the backside of the Tokens paper was just perfect. I also really wanted these photos to "pop" off the page so I used the Vintedge Glam paper. You really can't see it in my post here but this paper is nice and shiny and slightly embossed really giving my photos that extra "pop" I was looking for.I added some Vintedge borders and word stickers and my layout was complete!


For my second layout, I used the keyhole on the ad for my inspiration. I created a "hollow" heart in the background and put the picture inside as if looking through a keyhole.
I really hope you enjoyed what I have shown you today and remember to win this line....you must complete the challenge and post to any one of the posts for this week. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Vintedge Layout & Card

by JJ Sobey | January 23, 2012


HI Ruby Rock-it Fans - JJ here again, this time with a couple of projects featuring the new Vintedge collection.


Doctor Who is a big favorite at my house.  Even though my son has never seen the show, he has taken a liking to bowties (all on his own - no prompting from me), and was super excited to get a new one.  Of course I had to document that, and the anglophile imagery in parts of this collection were perfect for my page.


I die-cut a couple of extra gears to match the ones in the papers:


I love to combine minis with chipboard for larger titles:


For my take on this week's Ad Challenge (details here), I was inspired by the keyhole design in the ad, and used that imagery in my card.

Rr-be mine

Hmm - a Valentine Card and a Boy layout - pretty cool that you can get both of these from the same collection!

Don't forget to visit this post for all the details on how you can enter to win a full collection this week.
