Faded Empire | Creative Cards with Beckie
Hello, it's Beckie here to share with you some cards that I made with the beautiful Faded Empire range.  
Products Used
I made this a gatefold card as I like this style of card for a base.  I used some spellbinders dies to create the central piece.  I loved the little bird cage in the Empire die cut pack so wanted to incorporate it into the card.

The Empire collection has a lovely vintage feel to me and I wanted to show this in this card.  I loved one of the Empire stamps which I have used as a backing for the 'Happy Birthday' which is shown in the picture above.  I also scrunched the rose die cut to give it some texture.

For this card I used to gold alphabet and decided to make a bold statement on the front!  Teamed with some of the sentiments from the mini alphabet packs the card makes an instant impact on what you are saying!!
Thank for stopping by today and make sure to check out your local stockists for a many fantastic ranges!

Creative Cards | Faded Empire with Alicia
This month at Ruby Rock-It we are featuring the brand new Faded Empire line. This is a beautiful floral collection with gorgeous vintage motifs. Today I have a set of cards to share. I used a combination of papers, die cut pieces, stamps and droplets, all co-ordinating from the same collection. 
I used journal tags from the paper collection as a base to build up layers. 
I also fussy cut some floral sections from the paper collection. For this one I combined a stamped image, which I fussy cut, with a mini sentiment sticker. 
This time I again used a journal tag as my base, then added a row of Bella trim.

Boys will be boys

by Teresa Horner | March 12, 2016


Hi Ruby Rock-it fans it's Teresa here today to share a new layout i did for Lovin Layouts day.  I used one of the new mini kits for my layout and i so loved all the cute things in the "Baby Boy Mini kit". It has lots of robots and space ships, stars tags and cute sentiments to use too.  And i had the perfect picture for it.

To make this page you will need to cut the star paper down to 11 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches. And then glue it on orange paper.  Cut a band of the striped paper about 4 inches and glue at the bottom.  Then cut another strip of the stripe paper with the sentiment on it and glue it over top of that.  I wasn't sure if it would work but it blends quit well. For my photo i matted it in the red that matches and then in white. I cut a small strip of the polka dotted paper and glued it to the right and then added my photo.
Then i started using some of the super cute images from the "Boy die cut pack".  The robots went so good together and then i added tiny strips of silver paper and a few extra stars to fill in the spaces.

And then i cut out the word handsome to put on the side of the photo and that cute space ship over it.

And lastly i added the rough and tumble words and the boys will be boys and men will be men and ... a few more stars here and there.  The remember tag is from the die cuts and that was perfect to put at the top so my nephew can fill in a little something about that day.  I am making lots of pages for them to put in a book for his first year and this one came out super cute!  That's all for my share today but be sure and check back again for more inspiration with all the new papers just released.
Thanks too for stopping by and hope you have a very happy and crafty week!

Hello & happy March to you! Today I get to share with you a layout featuring the beautiful Faded Empire collection: P3 P4

Gorgeous, right? Since St. Patrick's day is just around the corner, I thought I'd add a touch of green in this page. Spring MemoriesChristine Santos

I was in the "paper" mood while creating this layout. I've layered a couple of pretty Faded Empire papers along with the new iWood paper, Lucite Hearts & Stripes & Happy Days' Mottle Corrugated Cardstock. IMG_8408

This is my daughter's first time enjoying the fruits of her labor. She planted snow peas seeds in our garden last season & she's been watering & looking after it so well. Come spring time she's rewarded with loads of fresh delicious sweet peas! IMG_8411

A Bella page is not complete without some Bella Bling. As you can see in this layout I've added Borderlines Bling which looks great against the Faded Empire & iWood papers. IMG_8412

Check out the pretty banners from the collection's Die Cut Pack. There's heaps of pretty pieces in it. IMG_8418

I've colored the Fundamentals Font Wood Veneers to match the shade of the pea. To finish the layout I've added some Bella Florals & journaling on a Fundamentals Circle Tag.

Family is truth

by Erin Yamabe | March 8, 2016


Hello and Happy Monday, Ruby Rock-It Fans!  Erin here with you today, with a layout of my older daughter in our cousin's wedding.  We are featuring our beautiful New Winter range, Faded Empire this month.  The patterns and vintage feel in the color palette were perfect for this photo!

Faded Empire has a nostalgic and vintage feel, and we have a tradition in our family, that goes back 4 generations.  Our oldest is a flower girl for my cousin, and my cousin was my flower girl, and it is such a beautiful thing capturing these family moments.

The foundation for the layout is from our IWood range.  These double sided wood inspired papers are alot of fun to create with!

Then, I layered two of our Faded Empire papers onto the IWood paper.  

Our Wood Veneers and droplets are some of my go-to embellishments.  I wanted to match our beautiful Alpha chipboard gold letters, so I inked up the wood veneer shapes.

The die cut embellishment pack is filled with lovely vintage elements, and some have silver accents, and others, gold.  This golden key is perfect!

I fussy cut some of our arrows from our Dancette gold papers, to use as some embellishments on the top of the layout.  Thought it was a sweet pairing next to some of our wood veneers and droplets!

Supply List:

IWood papers

Faded Empire papers

Faded Empire droplets

Faded Empire wood veneers

Faded Empire diecuts

A Fresh New Look

by Alicia Barry | February 27, 2016
A Fresh New Look
Today I have some fresh new cards to share with you using the brand new sewing inspired Bolt paper collection and embellishments. 
For my first card, I used some fussy cut floral pieces and some offcuts from other papers, including some corrugated cardstock and some pretty little droplets. The imprinted pattern in the cardstock was enough of a pattern to keep the rest of the design simple. 

 Next up I layered some patterned paper with more corrugated board, and some die cuts for a simple but pretty card. 

Finally I layered patterned paper and corrugated card for a bold background. Fussy cut elements and die cuts were combined to create a focus cluster. Notice how I used a stitch stamp under the sentiment. I really like the subtle touch of gold on the die cut butterfly.

Sweet Greetings

by Erin Yamabe | February 25, 2016


"Sweet Greetings" or simple Hello cards are some of my very favorite to create and send!  As handmade and hand written cards are becoming outdated, there's nothing sweeter I think to send to a dear friend or loved one to brighten their day!

For the first card, I started with some of our gorgeous IWood paper for the foundation.  I've layered on top some of our pink corrugated cardboard paper!  And then, I chose one of our Bolt papers and punched out some circles!

One of my favorite embellishments are our amazing diecuts!  I chose some to layer in, and then added in our darling chipboard buttons and some pretty droplets!

To finish off the card, I added one of our wood veneer pieces and some of our Fundamentals alpha stickers!

For this next card, I started by creating a banner with our lovely Gold corrugated cardboard paper.  And added in a die cutted scalloped box as the centerpiece.

The Fundamentals alpha stickers and droplets completed this sweet greet card!

These supplies are all from our Bolt range: papers, diecuts, droplets, chipboard buttons.  


Thank you for stopping by and making Ruby Rock-It a part of your creative day!
