August Moon mini album

by Amanda Jones | March 17, 2012

 

Hi Ruby Rock-it fans! Amanda here and today I have a pretty August Moon mini album to share with you!

Cover full

I love the soft colours so much and they were perfect to use with these pics of my cat, Rosie. This is a very MINI mini album, sized at approx 3" x 4". The covers are August Moon papers, decorated with trims, pearls, flower sticker, more papers and some of the die-cut glitter cardstock.

Cover detail

I cut the 'R' with my Silhouette Cameo. The book is boud with a little bead chain.

Inside 3

The inside pages are made from some cute paper bags and each is decorated with a tag from the August Moon line and other bits and pieces. Each of the little photos measures 1 1/2" x 1 1/2". The journaling is typed with my vintage typewriter and I have room inside the paper bag pages to store some more little pictures and journaling.

Thanks for visiting us today! I hope you like my little book :)

Oh so Versatile!

by Sarah Hill | March 15, 2012

 

Hello again Ruby Rock-It lovers! It's Sarah here today! Are you not just LOVING the August Moon collection? This collection is extrememly versatile... you can make layouts, cards, decor items, and so much more.

"Home Sweet Home Forever" Decor Piece

August Moon Decor 1

I distressed the edges of the paper a little bit and curled them up a tad to give it a more antique feeling.

August Moon Decor 2

The Fundamentals! glitter alphas were perfect to give the August Moon papers a little pop of color. I chose the blue so the phrase would really stand out.

August Moon Decor 3

This little flower came from the sticker sheet that matches the collection... adorable!

August Moon Decor 4

Here's another close up of the glitter alphas and the "Forever" is actually part of the 3-D element part of the collection that I cut apart.

August Moon Decor 5

This decor piece was SO EASY to make, and you can make one too!! I just started with a 12x12 canvas from my local hobby store, a couple of sheets of the August Moon and Candy glitter dot paper, and some August Moon embellishments. You can easily whip up an adorable home decor piece to hang in your home with this amazing collection.

 

"Thinking of You Everyday" Card

August Moon Card 1

You get so many tags with the August Moon collection you can pretty much use them in 1,000 different ways!! (That's right, I counted! LOL)

August Moon Card 2

The August Moon collection has the most ADORABLE ribbon options, too!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE lace so this was perfect for my card. I also love the fun pink pom pom trim that goes with the collection. Put the two together and you've got a fun, different way to use your ribbons.

I hope you got inspired. Thanks for stopping by today :) See you soon!

More Contemporary

by Sandy Ang | March 15, 2012

 

At the start of the month I posted two projects showing the vintage, romantic side of August Moon. However this collection can be used in a more contemporary way. And it is versatile enough to work well with other Ruby Rock-It collections.

Lara CNY LO

 

In this layout I featured a panel from Crocus, my favourite paper of the collection. The tan and mauve colour palette nicely flatters skin tones. I paired it with a simple grey grid paper from the Wedding collection and embellishments from the Nostalgia collection. Up top I split a paper twine spool, tied some twine on and used it to define one corner of my visual triangle.

Hope you enjoyed this clean and simple way of using the collection. Don't forget to come back for lots more August Moon inspiration from our designers.

 

cheers, Sandy

Supplies : August Moon (Crocus, Cardstock Stickers), Bella Wedding (Tie the Knot), Nostalgia (Florals, Paper Twine)

A Sweet New Collection!

by Keelyyowler | March 14, 2012

 

Photobucket

This month, we've been having a wonderful time designing with Ruby Rock-It's newest collection, "August Moon". I love the beautiful soft colors and floral patterns. Lace and pearls add a perfect finishing touch.

Photobucket

I collect vintage photos. This sweet baby pic is one of my favs. I couldn't resist creating a decorative frame.

Photobucket

These little tags just made me ooh and aah. So cute on a card or layout. The self adhesive pearls are one of my favorite embellishments in this collection.

I hope you join us on the blog each day this month to see more fun with "August Moon".

Dear August Moon...

by Erin Yamabe | March 13, 2012

 

How I love thee!  Hi there, thanks for stopping by, it's Erin here with you today!  Oh my goodness, this range is just stunning and oh so much fun to play with!

AugustMoon.EYamabe.jpeg1

When we were in Paris, we enjoyed the heart of their winter!  Many of our photos were overcast...and I thought what a great range for some of my favorite photos from this trip!  Do you see the pretty silver glittery paper?  That is from a scallop circle paper, already glittered for you!  I like how it compliments the subtle images and softer tones in this range:)

IMG_2041

I love the pattern on pattern in these pages as well!  I chose to sand one of the embossed cardstock papers, and place it on top of the pretty diamond grid paper:)  And the pretty silver strip under the photo, came from the wedding range:)  Love how it all compliments eachother so nicely!

AugustMoon.EYamabe.jpeg2

Here's a wedding card I created, using some grey/silver glittered cardstock as the base.  I added a few doily stamps, and cut out some of the flowers and added some foam squares behind them to pop them:)

I hope you have some crafty time for yourself today!  Have a wonderful rest of your day ahead!

XOXO

The Perfect Year with August Moon

by Jodi Wilton | March 12, 2012

 

Hi everyone! Jodi here today to share with a layout that is very dear to my heart.  I have been waiting for the "perfect" papers to show the "perfect"year that I had with my youngest daughter, Taylor.  For each of my kids first year, I have done a layout showing their progression each month.  Taylor, will be 2 soon, and as soon as I saw the paper, and the cute little tags in this collection, I knew that this was the paper to use to show how much she has grown in one year.  Here is the layout:

 

 

OUT FOR PUBLICATION

 

I used 12 of the tags, and used the ribbon that came with the set to tie them off. I distressed a lot of the paper to give it more dimension.  I also used some flowers and alphas from the Fundamentals collection to add the perfect touches to finish up the layout.   Here is a close up:

 

OUT FOR PUBLICATION

Hope you think my cutie, is as perfect as I do.  Happy Scrappin' !

Spring is in the air with August Moon!

by Carrie Walz | March 11, 2012

 

Hi everyone!  Carrie here today. Hope you all are enjoying the end of the weekend. It was so nice here in Chicago but instead of being able to take advantage of the wonderful weather, I spent it inside doing some much needed spring cleaning. I really hate doing it, but it feels so good after you are done...it is such a freeing feeling. I did manage to get some scrapbooking in so I do have a layout to show you! With spring on it's way it seemed only fitting that August Moon was the line we were revealing to you this month. It is such a soft and whimsical line...almost makes you feel like you are right there in a field of fresh flowers. I had these photos of my daughter from last school year, she played Little Bo Peep in a school play...and check out the Meadowsweet paper from the August Moon line...PERFECT!!! This paper is so pretty I kept my layout to a minimum so I could really let the paper do the talking.  I added some lace ribbon from the line, some die cut stickers and oh, check out the beautiful little pearl accents that come in this line too. The bling strips I added came from the Bella Bling line (again, showing how easy Ruby Rock-It makes it to mix and match lines.

IMG_0501

Here is a close up of those pretty little pearl accents I was talking about...

I hope you all enjoy the rest of what is left of your weekend and make sure you stop by again tomorrow to see some more beautiful August Moon creations from the rest of the team!

August Moon is perfect for baby photos, too!

by JJ Sobey | March 9, 2012

 

Hi Ruby Rock-it fans - JJ here again.  The soft colours in the August Moon collection are lovely for a number of themes, but my first thought was to use them for this baby picture of my daughter.

Freshfromgod

I added a bit of sewing, and lots of the lace trim from the collection.

Freshfromgod-detail3

Some of the flowers and letters from the Fundamentals line work perfectly with August Moon.

Freshfromgod-detail

Of course, August Moon has it's own gorgeous pearls and cardstock stickers.  I die cut some flourishes from the glitter cardstock sheet, for a little more shine.

Thanks for visiting!

August Moon Cards

by Becky Olsen | March 7, 2012

 

Is everyone enjoying the beautiful parade of August Moon projects? I know I am so inspired by all of the gorgeousness! (if that isn't a word it should be!)

The first card I want to share is a fussy cut floral all occasion card. I love to make all occasion cards, they come in so handy when I have an unexpected event, need a quick card to brighten someones day or a birthday that might have slipped my mind...

It happens, and having a few different styles to choose from in any given circumstance is sure to guarantee an appreciative and happy recipient  :o)

Floral Fussy Cut

Distress the edges and give it a rip, crimp a piece of paper (or accordion fold) and tuck under the rip. Trim another piece and distress that as well, adding little pieces of the same paper for a sweet peek-a-boo surprise. Fussy cut a flower and adhere with dimensional foam and of course I had to add those sweet little butterflies with a pearl in the center.

Patchwork Butterfly

Also, cards are a great way to use up your beloved scraps! I have been working on my project for my post later in the month and had some great scraps that I just could not bear to throw away. So I pieced and trimmed them to fit a card top and stitched with a bright green to get a wonderful rustic, quilted look. The butterfly sticker was powdered and a dimensional foam square adheres it in place. I then added the lustrous August Moon pearls to the butterfly body for extra dimension.

Cards are a wonderful way to share a bit of yourself with those you care about, and this August Moon collection is sure to provide loads of inspiration to do just that.

Happy Card Crafting!
