I created the page using products from one of the latest RG deals:


This deal can be purchased HERE until Friday, February 17th at 11:59PM US EST.

I have created a process video for you to enjoy watching and hopefully create your own after getting your hands on this amazing deal!  click on the picture below to watch.


The embossed effect created by the die cut vellum is a little hard to see in the main photo, hopefully you can see it a little more in these pictures.  I can say it looks AMAZING in real life!

That little elephant is WAY to cute with his party hat on!


What a cool finishing element the die cut makes on the corner of this page!


Stamped sentiments make really cool title elements on scrapbook pages, so why limit them to just your card making!

All stitched up for Valentines day cards with Ruby Rock-it Bella Fundamentals

Hi Everyone love is in the air and I have had so much fun creating some sweet cards ready for Valentines day, a wedding or even an anniversary.  I couldn't stop at one card today so I created 3 for you to enjoy!

I got a Silhouette machine for Christmas and I have been enjoying having a little fun with it lately.   I just knew teaming up some cut files with these divine papers and embellishments in the Fundamentals ranges would be just perfect!  You may have noticed I have a running affair with the doilies, well today I'm going to show you a neat way to use them on your cards.

Here are the 3 cards I created.


I decided to explore the different colours in the collections teaming them up with the beautiful colourful card bases.  For my first card I went with the sweet green tone.


Head to the Ruby Rock-it blog for a full list of the products i used 

HERE

I wanted to share with you how I created it, so hear goes!

I started by creating some fun cut files, I'll use these for the 3 cards.



I created this layered heart from a couple of cut files on the silhouette machine.


I took the square design and adhered some strips of the 'Trimming' pattern paper behind to highlight some of the words.


 Next I added some stitching around the edge, backed it onto some white cardstock and adhered to the coloured card base.
Next I added one of the sweet doilies followed by the heart

To finish I added a silver cord bow followed by a smaller heart which I also added some stitching around.



Here are some more pictures so you can get up close to my card.



Now onto the second card!


I took the second of my silhouette cuts and added some of the 'chevron' pattern paper behind.  Layering this onto some embossed cardstock I stitched around the layers before adhering together.  

To add the cluster I layered a doily, silver cord bow and a layered heart.  


To create the heart I cut out 3 different sized hearts and stitched them together with a line down the middle.  I then folded the layers up for some sweet dimension.


 Here are some up close pictures of the card.  I just love the pattern papers peeking through the negative space of the cut words.


So you are still waiting for the neat idea to use the doilies!  Well in the third card I used them in a fun way.  


Rather than adding an embossed feature to this card I created the illusion of embossing by adhering the doilies to the background instead.  They look amazingly sweet used in this way I think.


I love the sweet hearts on the 'lovehearts' paper and they are just a perfect embellishment at times as well.



Well Valentines day is just around the corner and I now just have one dilemma... which one do I choose to give to my dear hubby??

Hope you enjoyed my share today.

Happy Crafting!

Quick Cards with Beck BT - 02 - Ruby Rock-it

Hi Everyone I'm back again and today I'm going to share with you my second card in my new series.  'Quick cards with Beck BT'  I hope you enjoy them and find some easy designs to re-create yourself and hopefully get some of you started on the cardmaking journey!

For my second creation I created it using the a new line by Bella Fundamentals once again and perfectly matched with card No. 1.    I am adoring working with these papers and I hope my short video shows how easy card making really can me!

I think the hardest part at times is working out what you want to place where.  If you aren't confident with that yet, use some inspiration (like my cards) and re-create them yourself.  Before you know it you will be changing up more and more of the design to your personal taste and be on your way creating your own designs!

Here is my second card!



Watch my quick video to see it come together!






Products Used:
Bella! New York Collection papers
Back to Basics Doilies FTE97
Fundamentals Butterflies
Fundamentals sentiment words

Other products used:

White Cardstock
Natural Twine

Here are some more pictures of my sweet card up close.




Here is a pic of the card with it's buddy 'Card 01' in 'Quick Cards with Beck BT'

Don't they look adorable together?


Did you miss card 1's post?  Here it is HERE for you to check out :)

Hope you enjoyed my share today.  Come back next Wednesday for my next card in the series!

Shimmerz Aqua Huez the star of this background

So I have been creating while away on our summer holiday and I have a new Scrapbook page up on the Shimmerz blog. I created my page using Shimmerz Aqua Huez and teamed it up with paper and embellishments from Coco Vanilla Studio.

  Head on over for all the details HERE

I created a short video showing the process so you can see how the background comes together. Remember you can match as little or as many colours as needed to compliment your papers.  Just click on the video below to watch.


Here are some more pics of my scrapbook page so you can get up close with the colorful goodness!




Till next time


Like what I have used and would like to get your hands on some?  See below:  


Creating while travelling

Are you like me and you can do anything in the car, read a novel, work on the computer, write and even papercraft?  Well if you are you'll be interested in this post.. and well if not you might still enjoy a show on some minimal supplies you can take to get creative on a journey (maybe more so when you reach your destination in that case!

I created this video today after we arrived at camp.  We had a long journey in the car so I took some supplies to be able to get creative.  While I can't yet show the pages I worked on, I can take you through what I found useful to take and well some things that just weren't very thought out (she says with a slightly embarrassed look and smile on her face)

Check out the video.  Hope you enjoy it!



I hope you are having a wonderful day!  I'm off to finish my scrapbooking pages I planned out today!

CHA sneak peeks with RGs Silver and Gold Collection

Hey Everyone, I'm back today with an exciting share.  Today I am part of a blog hop to celebrate the new releases by RG.  These new collections are so much fun to create with and today I’m going to be using the new ‘Silver and Gold’ collection.  

I’m away at the moment on our Summer holiday so I was a little limited by what I had with me to use from the collection, so I decided so focus on the beautiful dies and how you don’t need a great deal more to still create a beautiful page as well as how versatile they are. 



For my project I used the following:

RG - Richard Garay

'Silver and Gold' Full Bloom Die Set
'Silver and Gold' Gold Blooms Set
'Silver and Gold' Doiley Burst set
'Silver and Gold' Marigold set

Fun Stampers Journey

Journey Watercolor pencils - 0015, 0017, 0027 & 0029
Journey Gesso
Journey sequin trim in yellow
Journey White cardstock 12 x 12"

So I set my self up outside, away from where we were camping. Seeing I forgot to take some water - sort of an important ingredient for working with watercolours... I had to drink my wine a little quicker than planned!  So I had my white cardstock and watercolour pencils and I was ready to go.


I started by adding the pencil direct to my cardstock.


 Next I took the paint brush in the tin and added some water to activate the watercolour in the pencil added to my page.


Once this was softened I then used a plastic bag to make my edges a little more rustic by placing it in the still wet watercolour and then stamping down on the edges.


After looking at the page at this stage, I wanted to add a little texture into the page but not too much.


 I decided on a little Gesso added using the back of a paint brush.  I added it in pretty randomly breaking up the watercolor and adding a little texture.


I added the die cuts in white cardstock layered as shown.  Given the design the break up the watercolour so well.  I also added a little sparkle in with the sequin trim.  

Here are some more pictures so you can get up a little closer.
