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.

Mermaid Kisses Box


Hi there.  Today I’m excited to share a shimmery box surrounded with mermaid kisses and starfish wishes featuring Bella’s gorgeous new Dream mini theme paper collection.  As the name states, it has dreamy paper prints, colors and mermaids, and I opted to show the softer colors of the Dream collection.

Bella materials: Dream Paper Collection, Kraftastic Sticker, Franchville Glitter

First I’ve painted an old box with some Tattered Angels paints and then layered some Dream papers around the box.

I then mixed some gold Franchville Glitter with some mediums and stencilled the front and top of the box for shimmery texture.  I then misted and inked around the box for extra pops of fresh color.


I then fussy cut some mermaids and wordings and added these to the clusters on the box, amongst some pretty Kraftastic Stickers.  I just love the silver glitter that comes with the Kraftastic Sticker Sheets and these make great Bella crafting staples.

I had fun creating my mermaid wishes box and I hope you enjoyed looking through it.  Check out more of Bella’s collections HERE.

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.

A French Country Card For Nan

It’s time for a card share today with Bella’s beautiful new French Country paper collection.  Mother’s day is not too far away and I cannot miss out on creating a special card for a special woman.

Bella Materials: French Country Collection, Mini Florals

Fundamentals Materials: Kraft Cardstock, White Mini Peg, Sentiment Pack

The Fundamentals Kraft Cardstock is the perfect sturdy base for this earty French Country card.  I layered the woodgrain and hay print papers on top of the card, and then built the cluster on top left which include the pretty Bella Mini Florals and punched shapes from the paper collection.  How cute is the little chick?

The card is finished with a Fundamentals Sentiment and White Peg, and some touches of inks and mists on top.

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.
