Bella Botanical Bloom

Spring has sprung in New Zealand and the sunnier weather has inspired me to create with Bella’s gorgeous Botanical collection.  I wanted to fill my display with lively colors much like bright spring floral blooms.

Ruby Rock-It materials: Bella Botanical Collection, Fundamentals Alpha Wood Veneers

I was doing a clean up at home and found an odd piece that looked like rubbish, which I decided to keep and tranform into my spring bloom display.

There are so many beautiful flowers, leaves, and butterflies to fussy cut from the Botanical collection which I’ve added to my cluster.


I then painted and misted around the display for a nice bright finish, just how lively spring season makes me feel.  Last but not the least, I added some painted Fundamentals Alpha Wood Veneers for the title.  Gotta love spring blooms!

Thanks for popping and and I hope you enjoyed my bright botanical display.  For more Ruby Rock-It, click HERE.

Cheers,

Box of Fun – Bella Nursery

I’ve been getting my fingers inky with my new baby layout featuring Bella’s new adorable Nursery collection with Ranger’s Distress Inkpads.  I always enjoy scrapping baby photos as it always takes me back to my childrens’ memories.

Bella materials: Nursery Collection, Bolt Florals, Bolt Chipboard Buttons, Gold Corrugated Cardstock, Fundamentals Alpha Wood Veneers

Ranger Distress Inkpads: Evergreen Bough, Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Gathered Twigs, Weathered Wood

Other: Ranger Foam Applicator, White Cardstock, Mists, Stencils, Mediums

First I layered and stencilled my sunshine yellow mists on a white cardstock and let it set.  I then added some mediums and combined the different shades of Distress Ink on the page for depth and color.

I then framed my daughter’s photo with Bella’s Gold Corrugated Cardstock.  I love the shine and dimension of this versatile specialty cardstock.  The picture is then surrounded with some pretty golden florals from the Bolt collection.

Next I punched and fussy cut some sentiment and cute images from Bella’s Nursery paper collection, inking the edges with the Distress Ink.  I then adhered these around the page along with a gold foiled Bolt Chipboard Button.  It’s finished off with some more inking and stamping the title on the bottom of the page using the Fundamentals Alpha Wood Veneers.

I had so much fun getting creative with my daughter’s baby photo.  It’s so funny how she’s got all the toys in the world and the most fun she’s had is playing in, on, and around empty boxes.  Funny that, eh?

Where Heaven Has Touched The Earth

Hi there.  I’ve got a lush green layout to share with Aga Baraniak’s Compose Your Life paper collection and Tattered Angels’ paints, together it is a match made in heaven.  I just love this collection and the papers are great for adding layers of mediums.  Here is my heaven on earth layout:

Canvas Corp materials:

Compose Your Life 12×12 Paper: Be Strong
Compose Your Life 12×12 Paper: Red Flower Pieces
The Watering Can: Garden Words on Ivory Reverse Paper
12×12 E-Flute Black
Cord – Braided Cotton Rope: Bright White
Waxed Cotton Cord

Tattered Angels materials:

Glimmer Mists: Kiwi, Pistachio, It’s Brown, Graphite
Chalkboard Mist: Chalk

I generously misted the Kiwi Glimmer mist for my background with some splattering of the Graphite Glimmer Mist and Chalk Chalboard Mist.  I then lightly brushed the edges of the page with the It’s Brown Glimmer Mist.

I trimmed the sentiment off the Garden Words on Ivory Reverse Paper and fussy cut some leaves from the Red Flower Pieces paper and added these to the page.

Nothing can be more heavenly than have a perfect Spring wedding day and seeing your daughters walk down the aisle for you.  This truly was an unforgettable memory which I will forever treasure , and I’m so happy how my page turned out.

All Canvas Corp Brands’ range are available HERE.  Thanks for stopping by.

Dad’s Day Distress Card

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.

Materials: Franchville Neutrals Cardstock, Family Man Collection

Ranger Distress Inkpads: Mowed Lawn, Gathered Twigs, Aged Mahogany, Hickory Smoke, Old Paper, Walnut Stain, Chipped Sapphire

Other: Ranger Sponge Applicators

I started with the white cardstock from the Franchville Neutrals Cardstock set and then blended different shades of Ranger’s Distress Inkpad sets with the sponge applicator to achieve a layered grungy depth to my masculine card.

I then fussy cut some image and letters from Bella’s awesome Family Man paper collection and added this on the card, perfect for dad’s day.  I finished it all off with some stamping and more distress ink application around the card…so much fun!

Don’t forget to create something special for dad’s day.  I hope you enjoyed today’s post and you can check out more of Ruby Rock-It Brands HERE.  These are also available to purchase along with the Ranger Distress Inkpad range at a Spotlight store near you.

Thanks for popping in!

Dream Big – A Little Girl’s Card


Hi there.  Today I’m sharing a magical little girl’s birthday card filled with unicorn and pretty pinks.  Here’s to encouraging a birthday girl to dream big:

Bella materials: Magic & Wonder Paper Collection, Franchville Pastels and Neutrals Cardstock Pack

The pastel pink Franchville cardstock is the perfect base for this fun girly card.  I then die cut the black Franchville cardstock and layered it amongst the pretty Magic & Wonder paper and fussy cut image.  Some misting, inking and flowers from my stash are then added to finish the card.


What fun it was creating with the Bella’s sweet and magical Magic & Wonder collection.  Check out more of Ruby Rock-It Brands’ range HERE.
