August Wrap Up | Farewell Winter

August Wrap Up | Farewell Winter

Well folks that's another August done and dusted for another year.  I'm honestly glad to see the end of Winter and eagerly looking forward to welcoming in the new Spring season.  It’s a time for nature to blossom and the glorious creation of new life.   The weather begins its transition from a cooler winter period to a scorching summer where the days are longer and the nights get shorter allowing more time to get things done.   People noticeably become more motivated to do the things they kept putting off during Winter (morning jog anyone?).  Not to mention, the exposure to more sunlight increases the serotonin in our brains making us feel much happier.  And did you know that sunlight also triggers our body to produce vitamin D3 which helps keep our bones strong?  There's definitely a lot to love about Spring and the positive vibe it brings wouldn't you agree?

This month our team designed amazing projects using the new Francheville card and envelope sets as well as Bella's Glitz Glittered cardstock.  The Just Bead It team didn't let us down with their gorgeous jewellery masterpieces featuring our stunning beads from Just Bead-It.  So with that said, lets revisit the projects our team created during a busy August!


Just Bead It

Green n Black Neckwear Explosion by Chez

"Oh my… what a wonderful time was had with these pretty beads.  I want to share with you my gorgeous green and black necklace creation showcasing the new beading range from Just Bead It". 

Modern Vintage Crystal Jewellery Set by Melody

"These beautiful beads were my inspiration today and I have created a three piece vintage crystal jewellery set with a bit of a modern twist.I love them - these beads are pure glamour and the colour is phenomenal! All of the many facets shimmer and change catching the light with every movement; they are just gorgeous to work with".

Spring Surprise Neckwear by Chez

"I had the best time making this fun and quick neckwear inspired by our up and coming Spring season. The beads are just adorable to work with.  I absolutely love the vibrant reds and golds that have been used with hints of black seed beads to finish off this statement piece".   

Turquoise & Bronze Beach Necklace by Melody

"Turquoise goes well with so many colours I thought it might be nice to bring out the beautiful crazing on these beads by arranging them with the bronze. To create this look, I used a good variety of smoothly textured and different shaped turquoise beads combined with a mix of more intricately shaped and patterned bronze spacers".

Scrapbook Layouts

A Sweet Birthday Layout by Alicia

"In my layout project today, I am showing you just one idea on how to incorporate this with the vintage papers from the Faded Empire collection. With glitter, less is sometimes more, so I have used just hints of it across my design". 

 Summer Escape | Scrapbook Layout by Teresa

"In keeping with my "time is very limited theme" I created my simple and easy page with pretty beach styled papers to give my picture that feel of what it might have looked like long ago on Santa Monica beach.  The papers are from the Summer Daze collection and were perfect". 

Creative Cards

True Blue Love Card by Beck

"I'm sharing with you a sweet card I made with lots of pretty Bella!  I'm still loving the stitching look and today I wanted to incorporate some sewing machine stitching to my card". 

Exquisite Vintage Cards for all Occasions by Teresa

"Two of my favorite lines of paper are the Faded Empire Collection and the "Heritage collection". Each of these are filled with gorgeous vintage colors and prints and would make fabulous cards.  And i also thought it would be fun to mix the patterns and cut them with a die cuts.  I kept the patterned paper prints small and it really came out nice i think".

Elegant Thank you Card with a hint of Glitz by Alicia

"This month at Ruby Rock-It we are continuing to showcase the new Francheville card and envelope sets as well as the Glitz cardstock. I am such a big fan of glitter, but even I know that there is such a thing as too much at once. In my project today, I have used the Glitz cardstock in a way that is elegant and eye catching, but not over the top".

A Sweet Card for Someone Amazing by Beck

"I'm sharing with you a sweet card I made with lots of pretty Bella! Raw and Rustic Paper and teaming it up with the new Francheville Card and envelope packs".

Frosty Christmas Card Fun by Christine

"Did you know that there's only 20 more weeks to go before Christmas? For this reason, I have started to gradually create my Christmas cards. This year I plan on making each card extra special, and today I get to share with you my 2018 Christmas Card number 1".

Off the Page

Golden Floral Delight by Christine

"I love the feather prints of the gorgeous Raw & Rustic collection, which is why I made it the cover of this book box. I've added a subtle hint of sparkle at the right side with the help of Bella's Watermelon Glittered Cardstock. I've whitewashed the top of this glittered cardstock to give it a nice sanded look".
