February is a very exciting month here at the Ruby Rock-It Brands quarter as we get to share with you beautiful new paper collections. Today I get to share with you an off the page display stand featuring the lush Botanica collection.
Bella materials: Botanica Papers, Black Floral Strips Bling, White Glitz Cardstock
Other materials: Franchville Jewel Tones Glitter, Twisted Citron and Black Soot Ranger Distress Inkpads
I’ve fussy cut some gorgeous images from the Botanica papers and layered onto the stand.
Green and black inky touches are from Ranger’s Twisted Citron and Black Soot Distress Inkpads.
I added touches of pretty Bella Bling at the bottom of the stand, which I have painted and layered with mediums to match the Botanica motif.
I sprinkled some green glitter from Franchville’s Jewel Tones Glitter Pack on the bottom of the stand as I’m letting the medium dry for a sugary glittery finish.
I added a couple of punched borders with Bella’s White Glittered Cardstock for a little extra sparkle. The photo background also happens to be one of the yummy papers from the Botanica collection.
That is just one of the new Bella paper collection and I cannot wait to show more off in the next few weeks with you. I’ll be back with something entirely different and exciting soon.
Check out all Bella goodies HERE. Thanks for popping in.
I’ve got a fun layout with a good mix of Bella collections to share today. One of the main reasons I enjoy scrapping with Bella papers is that they are versatile and so easy to mix and match. I also added touches of Ranger’s Distress Inkpads throughout the page to bring it altogether.
Bella materials: True Romantic Wave Paper, True Romantic Lovehearts Paper, True Romantic Ribbon Paper, Raw & Rustic I Do Paper, Memories Mini Theme Memory Lane Paper, White Bella Florals, Gold Spiral Flourish Bling
Fundamentals materials: Butterfly embellishment
Ranger Distress Inkpads: Lime Citron, Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Other: Ranger Foam Applicator
I’ve layered some strips of the True Romantic Ribbon Paper on the Wave Paper. I then lightly added some gesso and paint on the page.
Next, I layered the Lovehearts paper and some scraps behind the photo. I then built a cluster of White Bella Florals on the corner of the photo.
I’ve fussy cut some words/letters from the Raw & Rustic I Do paper and added this at the bottom of the page for a fun title.
A Bella page is not complete without some Bella Bling, and I love the golden touches of the Spiral Flourish Bling. A couple of fluttering Fundamentals Butterfly Embellishments and some ink application of Ranger’s Lime Citron, Antique Linen, and Walnut Stain Distress Inkpads are then added.
Thanks for popping in and I hope you enjoyed my purple and green page as much as I enjoyed creating it. Check out Bella’s range HERE and Ranger’s Distress Inkpad Sets are available at a Spotlight store near you.
Hello 2018! A new year means new resolutions, and this year one of my top resolutions is to scrapbook more. Life gets really busy and taking the time to scrapbook and enjoy the creative process is important for me this year. Today I am going to get the crafty ball rolling, sharing with my first layout for 2018.
Ruby Rock-It materials: Faded Empire Florals, Heritage Cardstock Stickers, White Corrugated Cardboard
I’ve had this photo of me with my dear daughters sitting in my “to scrap” pile for quite a while, and I’m so happy that I took the time to create my page just the way I like it…mixed media style.
I started playing with a rainbow of colors of Ranger’s Distress Inkpads for my background, and then built some layers of medium on top.
Ranger Distress Inkpads: Aged Mahogany, Spun Sugar, Walnut Stain, Mustard Seed, Fossilized Amber, Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon, Cracked Pistachio
I framed my photo with Ruby Rock-It’s White Corrugated Cardboard and built a cluster of Faded Empire Florals. I then adhered Heritage Cardstock Stickers for my title to tie it altogether.
Now that’s an awesome start for a crafty 2018! Please follow me in my creative journey this year, getting inky with Ranger’s Distress Inkpads alongsidide Ruby Rock-It Brands’ gorgeous paperfcrafting range.
It’ll be a good forecast ahead!
We’re already halfway through December and I’m definitely excited with the Christmas spirit going around. Today’s glittery share is a masculine and a feminine Christmas card using Franchville’s cardstock and glitter set. Let’s start with the masculine card.
Franchville materials: Neutrals Cardstock Pack, Jewel Glitter Set
Bella materials: Distressing Tool
I stencilled some trees on the black cardstock and generously sprinkled some green glitter from the metallics glitter pack.
I added some crackle around the card for some texture. I then adhered the chipboard sentiment on the card and sprinkled some more green glitter on top of it.
I then distressed the edges of the card with Bella’s distressing tool and finished it off with some misting on top.
Next up is a feminine Christmas card.
Franchville materials: Brights Cardstock Pack, Jewel Glitter Pack
Bella materials: Chandelier Bling
First I stencilled on top of the cardstock to achieve a snowy background and snowflake look. I then adhered the chandelier bling on the card, closer to the left side.
I stencilled the sentiment on top of the card and sprinkled some silver glitter, also spreading some more glitter around the card. I finished it all of with layering of mists and voila! I’m really pleased how these black and purple Christmas cards turned out.
Thanks for popping in and all Francville and Bella products are available to purchase at Spotlight stores near you. Have an awesome holiday season ahead and I hope you’ve enjoyed my Ruby Rock-It creations throughout 2017. I’ll see you again for more Ruby Rock-It inspiration next year.

Hi there. I’m excited to share with you my mini red Christmas tree filled with yummy Scrapmatts chipboards and stencils, perfect for getting into the festive feeling.
Scrapmatts chipboards: CB7010 3D Christmas Tree 02, CB5175 Christmas Shapes 04, CB1250 Christmas Shapes 03
Scrapmatts stencil: Stencil 9027 Damask
First I painted the Christmas tree chipboard with red paint and let it dry overnight.
I stencilled through the Damask stencil on the bottom chipboard layer of the painted tree and let it set completely.
I then assembled the tree, generously adding glue for sturdiness.
I added the gorgeous red Christmas chipboards to adorn the tree and added clusters of flowers as well.
I added a few dots of glitter on some of the chipboards to match the stencilled background. I finished it all off with white splatters around for a frosty look.
I had fun creating my mini red Christmas tree and I just love the gorgeous red Christmas chipboards range from Scrapmatts. You can find them all HERE.
Thanks for popping in and I hope you’ve enjoyed Scrapmatts’ inspiration throughout 2017. We thank you and appreciate all your lovely comments and we will back for more Scrapmatts creations for 2018.
I have been putting up Christmas decorations at home with my daughters and they are particularly excited with our Christmas tree. Every year I try to come up with at least one handmade Christmas tree decoration, and this year I created a glittery blue star.
Franchville materials: Blue Glitter Pack
Bella materials: Antique Floral Bling, Blue Borderlines Bling
This is a very special Christmas tree decor star, as the wooden star base is purchased to support children at the Auckland Starship Hospital. It is such a good cause to support and you get an awesome wooden star to keep.
I generously sprinkled the Blue Franchville Glitter Set on the wooden star, starting with the darkest blue shade then progressing to the lightest blue. I let each layer of blue glitter set before adding the next, finishing it off sparingly with the silver glitter.
I then added a small strip of Blue Bella Borderlines Bling across the bottom and layers of the Blue Antique Floral Bling on the middle. Some more sprinkling of blue and silver glitter are added on top and voila! A very special glittery blue Christmas star for a good cause.
Thanks for popping in and I hope you enjoyed my Christmas tree decor share today. All Franchville Glitter Sets and Bella Bling are available to purchase at a Spotlight store near you.
