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.
Here is a layout I created using this beautiful line:
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).
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!
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.
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.
Hope you'll be inspired to come back every day this month as our designers showcase this beautiful new collection.

Hello Ruby Rock-It, Bella! and Fundamentals fans!
We are thrilled to finally merge all of our great brands together in one place. We’ve had a lot of questions about who is Fynmark in relation to our old Facebook page. We thought it was time to clear up any confusion.
Fynmark is the trading company that distributes our three brands, Ruby Rock-it Designs, BELLA! and Fundamentals out to stores. They manage the logistics and make sure you get to see all the great ranges out in your stores. However you all know either Ruby Rock-it, BELLA! or Fundamentals depending on what you have purchased in the past.
Our designers at Ruby Rock-it focus on vintage styling with interesting embellishments that create a lot of interest.
Our BELLA! designers focus on our wedding and everyday scrapbooking product, eg. paper pads, glitter cardstock and general use items.
Fundamentals products focus solely on cardmaking: cardstock, envelopes, vellum, card kits, 3D decoupage and teeny tiny stickers and embellishments – we like to call it cardmaking for connoisseurs!
So we hope that clears up any confusion you all had - we’re all one big happy family under the Fynmark umbrella and we love creating new products for you to play with. We’re excited you’ve continued to support us, follow us and cheer us on. You are going to love the inspiration our fabulous team has planned for you.
We live by our motto: “Scrapping is love made visible!” and look forward to helping you do the same.
HUGE thanks to our Australian team who has been doing a fabulous job on the Bella! Blog via Fynmark and the Facebook page.

Yet I've been under the weather for a few days, I'm still managing to sneak in some peeks.
Thanks for your patience as we work to roll out this new journey.
Tomorrow in the U.S. is LEAP day, that EXTRA day in February, what will you be doing with your extra day??!! Albeit, for our Aussie team, today is YOUR extra day, what are you up to??!!
And a new month is on the way...

Please trust that it will be bigger and better, bringing it all together and making it all the more fun and exciting for everyone.

I love the vintage elements paired with bold/bright colors. SO perfect. The diecuts, felt shapes, and border strips are wonderful complements to each Ruby Rock-It collection. This diecut patterned paper is one of my favorite items in the collection.
Happy Creating! Keely Yowler
Hello, it's Erin here today, and I hope you are all having a fabulous crafty filled weekend:)
I don't know about you, but seriously, I cannot get enough of this gorgeous line: NOSTALGIA!
This month, our fearless leader, Rachel has given us freedom to create anything we want! How fun this was, let me tell you:)
The ticket paper is easily one of my favorites...and I wanted to give it a little bit of a different look: so I married it up with Claudine Helmuth's sticky back canvas! And I chose to keep half of the paper as is, and the top right portion the canvas:) Love how it gave it a shabby chic look and still kept the vibrancy of the colors!
Here's a closer look at the canvas paper:)
I like how the little butterflies jumped off the page with this pretty neutral background:)
Here's a little card that I just added some of the random pieces of paper I had leftover from the layouts:) A very dear friend shared her trick years ago...after your layouts are created, see how many cards you can create with your remnants:)
Thank you very much for stopping by today!
Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!
Hi everyone! Jodi here today to share some more Ruby Rock-it LOVE with you. I have been busy creating with the Bella! Wedding Line and love the cute stickers that come with this line. Here is a card I created using this line:
I absoultely love the bride and groom here! So super cute!
Here is a layout, I created a little while back, but wanted to share it with you today.
Here is a close up:
I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!!
Good morning everyone...Carrie here on this Free-Form February...oh how nice that sounds after all the hustle and bustle of CHA! We were given the opportunity to do what ever we wanted to this month. I took full advandage of this assignment. For my first layout I actually used 3 different lines...and Ruby Rock-It cardstock. The background paper is from the wedding line, The alpha stickers and some of the embellishments are from the Paper Doll line, the paper twine is from the Nostalgia line and from the Paper Boy line I used patterned paper and embellishments. I really love when I can make a layout using so many different elements and lines all together.
For my second layout I also used a few different lines. I used flowers and chipboard embellishments from the cardmaking elements, I used paper twine from the Nostalgia line, I used ribbon and die cut papers from the Keepsake line...and again all of these lines and elements flow so nicely together.
I hope I showed you how you can mix and match several different lines to make one wonderful layout and make sure you stop back tomorrow to see what else we have to show you!
