Denim, White and Blue

Hi there.  I’m excited to share with you my mixed media layout featuring Bella’s new Red, White and Blue paper collection.  I’m a massive blue color fan and I couldn’t help but play and showcase the blue papers of this verastile collection.

Bella Materials: Red, White & Blue Collection; Silver Corrugated Specialty Paper; Something Blue 3D Stickers; Krafty Goodness Papers; Blue Bella Florals; Silver Bella Florals; Fundamentals Stars & Hearts Wood Veneer

First I’ve layered a cut out of the stripe paper on the awesome denim paper from the Red, White and Blue collection.  Family and friends who saw this layout were impressed how real the denim paper looked.

Next I added some mediums and color to the backgound with my Tattered Angels paints.  I then framed my daughter’s photo with the Bella’s metallic silver corrugated cardstock.

I then layered some pretty Bella florals with some old flowers from my stash, and pieces of dimensional stickers around the photo.  I also stamped some Fundamentals Star wooden veneer before adding it to the page for some star background action, along with some fussy cut stars from the Krafty Goodness collection.  I finished the page off with some inking and splattering on top.

I had so much fun creating this layout and I love how the dark blue papers accentuated and made the photo stand out at the same time.  If you’re looking for a denim paper, Bella’s Red, White and Blue collection has got it.  Check out all the Bella goodness HERE.

Thanks for popping in.

Mixed Media Fun – Little Man Collection

Hi there.  Today I’m excited to share with you a fun mixed media layout of my youngest daughter in action, and I get to show you a taste of Bella’s awesome new Little Man paper collection.  Lately I’ve been having a blast using boys paper collections for my daughters’ layouts and other projects, and the Little Man collection is a current favourite of mine so far.  Wait until you see the rest of the paper designs of this range and you will agree.

Bella Materials: Little Man Cut Outs Paper, Blue Corrugated Cardstock, Mottle Corrugated Cardsock

First I started by stenciling and misting on a white cardstock with my Tattered Angels mists to match the colors of the Little Man collection.

I layered the photos on Bella’s corrugated cardstock that come in fun different colors for frame and dimension.

I then fussy cut some pieces from the Little Man Cut Outs paper and added these fun images around the page.

I then added some journaling at the bottom and more inking throughout to finish it all off.

Robots, check.  Spaceship, check.  Alien, check.  Rocketship, check.  All these and more sums up Bella’s Little Man collection.  You can check out more of Bella and Ruby Rock-it goodies HERE, or at a Spotlight and local crafty store near you.

Magic & Wonder

It’s time for a scrapbook page share today with one of Bella’s new Mini Theme paper collection that is Magic & Wonder.  It is a girly paper collection which has fun unicorns with pretty pink papers and more.

Bella materials: Magic & Wonder Papers (Cut-Outs, Stripes, Gem), White Bella Florals

I chose to showcase the photo in sepia which looks great against the pink papers and inky background, with Ranger’s Distress Inkpad range.

Ranger Distress Inkpads: Picked Raspberry, Gathered Twigs, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Foam Applicators

I’ve punched and fussy cut some pieces and fun images from the Gem and Cut-Outs papers.  The hardest part was choosing which side of each paper to use.

I’ve shaded and stencilled the background, blending the different shades of Distress Inkpads with the help of the Ranger Foam Applicator.  A cluster of pretty Bella Florals adorn the page to finish it all off.

I cannot wait to add this page to my scrapbook collection.  Thanks for popping in and I hope you enjoyed my post today as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Are you ready for another awesome new Bella paper collection? Today I’m showing off Grandma’s Kitchen collection, fun and vintage altogether in true Ruby Rock-It Brands style.

Bella materials: Grandma’s Kitchen Papers (Cut-outs, Floral, Recipes), Black Fundamentals Mini Peg

Other: Walnut Stain Ranger Distress Inkpad, Ranger Foam Applicator

I’ve used the Floral paper for the base of my mini baking recipe book.

I’ve used some Sizzix dies to cut the base and layers, and then inked the edges with Ranger’s Walnut Stain Distress Inkpad and Foam Applicator.

I trimmed all the recipes from the Recipes paper that came with this collection.  Isn’t that cool?

I mix and matched all the plaid, floral, and polka dot prints of the papers so that it shows through all the layers, nooks and crannies of this mini recipe book.

I’ve fussy cut some tags, words, and images from the Cut-Outs paper and layered these throughout.  Add a cute Fudamentals Mini Peg inside and some string to secure the book and voila!

Coast Wishing Well

March is a busy wedding season in New Zealand and my partner and myself will be tying the knot on the last day of this month.  We are so blessed and super excited to spend this special day together with our family and close friends.

Speaking of weddings, today I’m sharing a a special piece I created for the day which includes one of Bella’s new paper collection.

Bella materials: Coast Paper Collection, Cream Heart Stickers, White Glitz Cardstock, Bronze Glitz Cardstock, Borderlines Bling

If you buy beers from the supermarket then this must seem familiar to you.  I recycled a beer box and transformed it into our very own wishing well.  I shopped around for one but had no luck in finding anything that I fancy.  Hence, I made one for myself and I love how it turned out.  It also has a big tick of approval from my my family and friends.

I adhered the textured ropes and stones papers from Bella’s Coast collection around the box.  As soon as I saw these papers, I knew they would go perfectly with our outdoor wedding by the lake and it gave our wishing well a unique and special look.

I then painted the exposed sides and edges to cover the print of the beer box.

I then added some stenciling on top and the front of the box for some texture.

Some strips of Bella Bling are adhered around the opening on the top.

A cluster of flowers are added on top to match the natural and organic look of the wishing well.  I also added a couple of die cut leaves with Bella’s beautiful Bronze Glittered Cardstock on the cluster.

I then punched a border strip from Bella’s White Glittered Cardstock with my Martha Stewart punch and layered this around our name.  It’s all finished off by adding a few gorgeous Bella Cream Heart Stickers.

After eight and a half years and two kids, it is finally happening.  Good things do take time.

I hope you enjoyed today’s Coast Wedding Box post.  These goodies are available to purchase at a Spotlight store near you, and the Ruby Rock-It Brands website HERE.

Cheers,
