Hi everyone. We hope you have had a fabulousy inspiring July? Here in Australia we were smack bang in the middle of Winter so it has been rather chilly of late. The good news however, is that August has arrived and that can only mean Spring is edging closer and closer. I can't wait!
July also marks my one year anniversary since joining the Ruby Rock-it team. Where the year went, I cannot tell you but what I do know is that it has been one of the most wonderful inspiring years of my life. I have a magnificent creative team and delightful products to work with. This is my job yet it doesn't feel like work. I am always in awe of the brilliant creativity that my team come up with every week. The hours they put in to bring you unique masterpieces that speak a thousand words are simply inspiring! I'm sure you would agree? While I'm on the bandwagon of reminiscing, let's have another look at what the girls got up to last month. Enjoy!
BANISHING THE WINTER BLUES by Melody:
Melody shares something bright to banish the midwinter blues - with some vibrant pinks, beautiful purples and a little bit of shimmer & shine.
SPRING FLOWERING NECKWEAR by Chez
Although it may not be spring here in Australia as yet, this gorgeous neckwear was inspired by the mauve spring flowerings that grow along the white trellis in Chez's garden every year.
This time Melody has created a long layered neutral toned necklace, full of soft natural colours gently enhanced with a range of metallic tones.
CHRISTMAS IN JULY BRACELET by Chez
Chez created this gorgeous bracelet inspired by the colours of Christmas in July.
VIBRANT MIXED MEDIA CELEBRATION CARD by Christine
Christine created this colorful mixed media celebration card with Franchville's Bright Yellow Card and Bella's Glittered Cardstock.
Beck teams up some glittery goodness with her dies for a sweet effect. She has also included some of the fun Fundamentals embellishments as they are too sweet for words!
PRETTY GLITTER BIRTHDAY CARDS by Alicia
Teresa thought it would be fun and easy to cut a creative border for each of the colors in white and then decorate them with bits of Ruby Rock-it goodness. There are so many border die cuts out there and so your creativity would be endless. And it's a fun and easy craft to do with your kids.
Teresa stepped back in time to create this tremendous page of her husband's great, great grandparents. Featuring the " iWood" papers which were perfect to use alongside the log cabin that was their family home in the picture.
YUMMY FUN | SCRAPBOOK LAYOUT by Christine
Christine shares a layout which stars her youngest daughter making herb dough pizzas. She has used a large feature photo of her featuring Bella's Glittered Cardstock, Florals, and Ruby Rock-It's Bolt collection.
PRETTY GIRLS LOVE TO SMILE by Alicia
Alicia shared with us a layout that she created for her daughter using the new Glitz glitter cardstock. It has been featured here as both a background layer and again as a die cut fancy photo mount.
Beck created a layout inspired by her new found love for running. Here she documents through scrapbooking, the beginning of her running journey.
Our talented and inspirational team bring us amazing projects each and every week so here's your chance to find out a little bit more about the faces behind the talented projects. This month, we asked a few insightful questions to our lovely Alicia Barry from California USA.
Welll that's it folks, it has been an absolute pleasure. We always hope that you enjoy our posts and will feel inspired enough to create your own little masterpieces. Have a fabulous August and I look forward to catching up with you again next month!
