Flower Girl

I have really enjoyed creating this month with two of the new wedding collections and today I have been creating with the Get Hitched collection to make this layout ....

Products Used

As I said yesterday the Fundamental Vellums just go so well with the wedding lines and here I used it as a backing for my photo.  This piece is a silver colour and the flowers are 'see through'.  The vellum tears beautifully too for some added effects.

There are so many gorgeous flowers too that Ruby  Rock-it do and the yellow ones were perfect for adding to the layout like a mini bouquet.  Along with them I punched out some daisies from the paper in the Get Hitched Mini Papers.

I am loving the wood effects too that are on this paper.  I cut some of the wood circles out and used them as embellishments.  Can you spot one of my fav things that RRBF released at CHA??  Yes those gorgeous wood vaneer letters!  Oh you are going to want the whole range of them!

A layout of my little flower girl ....
Where has the time gone!?!

Enjoy today

Wedding Favour Boxes

Are you ever stuck for ideas when it comes to gift bags?  Gift giving is fun and having a unique personalised box just finishes it.  

Today I am here to share with you a video on how I made these wedding favour boxes with just one piece of Ruby Rock-it Vellum and no scissors are required .... well after you have cut the vellum to measure 19 x 12cm's!

The vellum is beautiful with the New Get Hitched collection.

The 'Hip Hip Hooray' is one of the new stamps that were released at CHA too!

So here is the video .....

I hope you have fun creating your own boxes,

Ruby Rock-It Get Hitched Cards

Hello Ruby Rock-It fans!  Are you loving all these new releases!?  
The new wedding ranges are just beautiful and I am really really enjoying working with them.  Today I am here to share with you some cards that I made for our booth in CHA with the Get Hitched collection.

It's not just the classic golds or the sunshine yellows that adorn these papers but the wood phrase that are shown on the 'Love' card.  They have to be my favourite!!

The 3D stickers are brilliant for adding to the cards to give it a bit of a lift.  The glitter on them also adds some sparkle too.

The four new collections not only come in  12 x 12 papers but there is a perfect little pack of mini papers which are ideal for card makers.  I have also used some of the new Fundamental Wedding Vaneer on this card below

Hopefully I have added a little sunshine in your day today, thanks for stopping by and do make sure you check out our website for all of our new releases.

Happy New Year!

Yes I know that it's the middle of January but I haven't had a chance to come on here.

You see I have been away ... far away! 

I have been enjoying spending lots of time chilling and surfing at places like this ....

and drinking copious amounts of these ...

One of my highlights was getting to visit the Ruby Rock-it head quarters.  I was so great to see where it all was happens and to meet the owners of this fantastic company I am so lucky to be working for.  

Seeing all the new product that was shown at CHA was fab and though I love it all I really can't wait for 'Happy Days' to create with.

So that is where I have been.  
As the new year begins I know I am blessed with so many things, big and small.
I am now beginning to wonder what 2015 has in store for me ........

Love me :)

So it is that time of year when we get ready to say goodbye to the old year and hello to the new one. 
I am here to post the last post of 2014 on the Ruby Rock-It blog and today I am sharing a peek of one of the **BRAND NEW** ranges that is going to be launch at CHA in 2015 .... 

Here is the romantic Rustic Charm collection, isn't it gorgeous!?!  The pastel colour palette and the soft sheen on them are just stunning and there are some beautiful glitter papers in the small pack.  
I made these in to crackers ready to be filled with small gifts.  I love making your own crackers as you can personalise them for each of your recipients.  
Can you imagine one of these for each wedding guest!?!  Amazing!

Thanks for stopping by and we look forward to seeing you all in 2015 where we will be sharing more sneaks of what is coming your way!

Ruby Rock-It Countdown to Christmas Part 2

Ho Ho Ho!  
It's Christmas eve and I am sure the little elves are busy getting last minute things together.
I thought today I would give them a helping hand and create a fun little table decoration to spread a little cheer!

Products Used :

I just love the traditional colours of Ruby Rock-It's 25 Days of Christmas Range and all the embellishments that come with it.  I think the Candy Cane border stickers has to be my favourite.  
I cut out some of the poinsettias from the paper and layered them up with foam pads to create a 3D flower.

Around the base I bent the tree trucks so that they could be tucked under the base and this allowed them to stand up straight.  The little star on the top of the house in from the Freckled Fawn November OhDeerMe Kit.

The top is decorate with white pom poms and I added a LED tea light in the centre for added sparkle.  I cut some of the stags/reindeer's from the sticker border and added them between the pom poms.

It's now time to head off and make sure everything is ready for Santa to visit,
I wish you a very Happy Christmas 
and hope you have a fun time

Ruby Rock-It Countdown To Christmas Part 1

Good morning everyone I hope you are beginning to feel festive with the Countdown to Christmas!
Today I have a little way of jazzing up your fairy lights and if you are anything like me you probably have loads!! 

NB : I understand that the LED lights are better to use and these should never be left unattended!

These little boxes are soooo easy to make.  Just take a square of paper, do a little bit of folding here and there and voila ... paper lanterns !!

You can find how to make these little water bombs (yes that is what they are called) {HERE}

I used 4 x 4 inch paper and made these, you can choose what ever size you like but do remember that the smaller the paper the more difficult it will be to fold it.  I was tickled by the way you blew into it and it just popped out into the box.

When the box was made up I decorated each of the fronts with some of the 25 Days of Christmas Border Stickers and some punched holly leaves from the paper.  

To attach them to the lights you just gently push each bulb into the wee hole and wait till it's dark enough to turn them on to see you handy work.

Here are a couple of photos of them lit up (sorry they are not the best pics!!)

Have fun creating for Christmas
