Ruby Rock-It

Some Paper Doll and Melrose to start your week...

Hi everyone,

I hope that your Monday is starting off well.  We are celebrating free form February here on the Ruby Rock-it blog.  Because many of us are just getting back from CHA, Rachel decided to give the team the freedom to create with the collection of our choice.  I chose to use the Bella Paper Doll collection for my first project:

Original Beautiful K layout:

Because the pattern papers in this collection are so bold and fun, I decided to keep the base of the layout simple and play around with some stitching on my new sewing machine that I just got for Christmas.  I added a chipboard K and felt flower, confetti stickers, and doll banner (also from the Paper Doll collection) and a rhinestone from the wedding collection.

Here is a close up of the stitching.

Those semi circles were a lot of work, but I thought that they added so much fun detail to the layout.

My next project is a layout that I created for the Ruby Rock-it booth at CHA using the Bella Melrose collection. 

Cherish layout:

 I also added some tags and flowers from the fundamentals collection.  I must admit that it was a bit of a challenge for me at first to create a layout only using black and white but I love the crisp prints and trims in this line and am really happy with the outcome.  Both of the collections that I used in my post today can be found at and

 Thanks for visiting the Ruby Rock-it blog today, please stop by again tomorrow to see what Benedicte created for Free form February.
