Twine love!

by Amanda Jones | February 4, 2012


Good morning Ruby Rock-it fans! I don't know about you but one of my fave new Ruby Rock-it products is the little spools of paper twine. The twine is so fun to use and they are super-cute, too!

I didn't want to hide them away in a drawer so I decided to make them into something more decorative to keep on my work table, whilst still being able to use the twine. This is what I came up with...

Spool flowers

First I made some paper rosettes with the Nostalgia line. I then decorated the rosettes with paper banners and stickers and attached them to some wire, before adding some hand cut leaves. They really brighten up my space!

Have a great weekend!

A Little Bit of This & That...

by Sarah Hill | February 3, 2012


Hello Ruby fans!! Sarah here! I had the pleasure to go to CHA in Anaheim to see the new goodies and let me tell you, the show was amazing!! The new Ruby Rock-It goodies are to die for! You MUST tell your LSS to carry these items.

Here's a layout I did using one of the newest collections, Nostalgia. I also used some of the Ruby Rock-It basics: glitter paper, chipboard glitter letters, and alpha stickers. Although these basics are geared towards card making, they are still PERFECT for layouts!!

Here's a little card using another new collection, Vintedge. I absolutely LOVE the color palette of this collection. The heart paper was perfect for a quick Valentine's Day card. And you can't go wrong with a tag. I tied some of Ruby Rock-It's new paper twine on the tag-love this stuff! It's stiff so it is easily mold-able.

One last project I made for you fabulous readers is this notebook. I actually used this notebook to write down all my notes at CHA :) It came in handy and the letters, bling, and stickers stayed stuck on no problem.

Hope you guys got some inspiration!! Come back tomorrow for some more :)

See you next time!

CHI CHI Banner

by Sandy Ang | February 1, 2012


More more Paper Doll project from Sandy. It's my CHI CHI banner for Ruby Rock-It's CHA booth. Seven little retro-style dresses to celebrate everything sweet and girly.

I used fushia as the dominant colour in my banner. The collection had a deep grey damask pattern which I loved. This lead me to use the subtle salmon-and-grey diamond paper from the Wedding collection as a key element to tie all the dresses together.

Clear rhinestones replaced buttons on my dresses. Their cool sparkle added a nice dimensionalty to the retro-style dresses, each of which were suspended with giant safety pins, making it seem like they were on a laundry line .

I believe it's the first time I've used all of a collection's embellishments on one project ! In my DT application I told Rachel it'll be a pleasure to work with Ruby Rock-It's embellishments. And true enough the variety of shapes and textures worked together really well.

Ruby Rock-It Supplies : Paper Doll (PD04 Cardstock Sticker, PD11 Ribbon, PD28 Floral Accents, PD29 Patchwork, PD35 Felt Icons, PD42 Chipboard Alphabet, PD50 Tokens, PD59 Border Sticker, PF67 Collage, PD99 Dotti ) Wedding (BWB70 Beloved, BWR54 Rhinestone w/ Silver Rim)

This is the mini book make-n-take we've been doing. People are loving it. I've been enjoying seeing everyone's unique interpretation of it as they work to do it. My philosphy has always been: Make it your own. You can't go wrong with the new ranges.

I want to take a moment to thank all of our sponsors that donated supplies to our make-n-take:


Therm O Web


I sincerely appreciate your genorosity.

A special thanks to one of my design team members, Erin Yamabe for helping facilitate them.

I will do my best to wrap up the day on the blog from the airpot 'if' time allows.

Tomorrow is the last day of the show and I board a plane on the same day to head back to the PAC-NW.

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,
