August Reminisce

August Reminisce

August has somewhat been quite bittersweet.   It was the last month of Winter for us Aussie's and after a season of cold weather and winter bugs, we welcome Spring with open arms!  We also sadly said good bye to two of our long time designer's, Alicia and Teresa. Both ladies have been an integral part of the Ruby Rock-It family for several years.  However change and new challenges were on the cards for these two girls and so we wish them all the very best in their new ventures!   Later in this post, we take a trip down memory lane to revisit some of their most favourite and memorable projects Alicia and Teresa created during their time here at Ruby Rock-It.  But first, let us take a look back at what the team got up to during August.....Enjoy!  


Creative Thank You tags for Party Loot Bags by Christine

My daughter's birthday is coming up soon and we have been busy shopping for her loot bag goodies to give away. We've decided to make our own tags to go with each loot bag with the help of Fundamentals' tags and Ranger's Distress Inkpads.

Wish Upon a Star Birthday Card by Beck

Hey there Ruby Rock-It fans!  It's Beck Beattie here today to share with a card teaming up the new Magic and Wonder Collection with some Tim Holtz Distress inks by Ranger.  They are such a perfect match!

My Dad, the Family Man by Christine

There's only three weeks to go until we celebrate the special fathers in our lives. My family love this time of the year as we honor dad, and what better way to express this by creating a Father's Day card.

Magic & Wonder Birthday Fun by Beck

Hey there Ruby Rock-It fans!  It's Beck Beattie here today to share a card using the fun Magic and Wonder collection.  I sure have had fun creating with this beautiful collection! It all just goes together so easily.


A Moment in Time | Independence Day 2018 by Teresa

Hi and thanks so much for stopping by today.  This month i am sharing a quick and easy page that i made with our Red, White and Blue collection.  Of course in the states that screams holiday to me and i had the perfect 4th of July pictures to use for it.  We had a fun opportunity this year to go to Riley's apple farm and the Colonial house and it did not disappoint and was actually the best 4th i have had in a long time.  The owner had a full day of shows, food and fun things to do for all the guests that came to the farm and it was like being back in time 200 plus years ago.  They even read our Declaration of Independence and had a few people in tears.  Amazing!

Cruising with Mickey by Alicia

We just got back from a wonderful two week trip to Disney World and the Caribbean on a Disney Cruise. I found this cute Disney sailor dress for Amelie at a Disney outlet store, and made Mickey shorts for the boys. We had the opportunity on board the ship to get professional photos of everyone. I'm very glad to have this sweet picture of my three babies. 

This month we farewelled two of our long time design team members - Alicia and Teresa.  Both ladies have had a significant impact for our brand and whilst we are sad to see them go, we wish them all the very best in their new ventures. 

To celebrate the great times Alicia and Teresa had with us, each of the ladies compiled their most favourite and memorable projects to date. Please take a trip down memory lane with us as we celebrate the amazing journey these ladies have taken with us over the years......

A trip down memory lane | Goodbye Alicia

I have been lucky enough to be part of the Ruby Rock-It Design team for the past 5 years.  I have recently accepted a new teaching position, so sadly, it is time for me to step aside and let some new people take over.  I am so pleased to be able to welcome two of my scrapping friends that I have known for many years. I wont spoil their big announcement, but I can assure you that you are in incredible hands. Ruby Rock-It fans will be so spoiled. 


A trip down memory lane | Farewell Teresa

oday is my last post here for the Ruby Rock-it team ( sad that this day is here already) and i thought i would do something different and share some of my favorite projects that i have had the opportunity of creating on this amazing team through the years.  I have been so blessed to work with such incredibly beautiful products each month filled with the latest designs and of course lots and lots of bling and sparkles too.  It has been the best time ever!!

What's next?

September is the start of a new season and new beginnings.  We have a new Just Bead It and two new Ruby Rock-It  designers joining the team that we can't wait to introduce you to!!!  We're very excited to see what these brilliantly talented ladies will showcase for us.  So stay tuned..... 

As always, we hope you have been inspired and we look forward to bringing more fun and inspiration your way in September.  

Happy Crafting!
