To Recreate:

 Cut out the red lightning bolts from the Jigsaw paper
Cut around the large clouds and bolts design from the reverse of the Collage Paper.
Also cut around a few of the Collage 'bubble' words. 
Arrange these elements over the blue side of Splat Paper 
Refer to the following picture for placement
Matt photos on coordinating cardstock - I used new colours available Basics Cards Fundamentals .  I cut the card in half at the score line.  Attached photo and trimmed around so that a thin frame peeks from around the photo edge.    
From the Jigsaw paper remove the 'Pow' word and 'Be your own hero' sentiment
From the Collage paper trim around 'Yeah!'  bubble word.
Remove a section from the Collage paper to create the base for the following embellishment cluster
Attach Yeah! over the top, then Pow and Be Your Own Hero   
 Attach in place across the bottom right hand corner of photo
 Cut out Bam! and Boom! from Jigsaw Paper and attach in place
Add a touch of 'Wonder Woman with a heart 'lasso' element - Trim from the Jigsaw paper and attach in place
 Trim a 12" thin strip from the Collage Paper, cut into different lengths and affix in place around the design  
I confess to having lots of fun putting this Superhero inspired layout together, I hope you do too, after all there is a little super hero in all of us!!

Ruby Rock-It!: Journal Art Inspiration

Hello Everyone!
  We were challenged to design a vision board this month.  Now I confess to having a 'bucket list' of things I want to do and achieve and a whole lot of personal goals I would like to work on.  Rather than create a board concept, I have gone with the art journal approach.  I am totally new to art journaling, but with saying that I am totally up to the challenge.
 This page is all about remembering to 'breathe', letting go and acceptance.
Ruby Rock-It! Products:
Bella! Cosmos CMS68 Manifest
Crafters Choice Bling VE773 Stars and Bling VE964 Iridescent Blue 
Distress Ink - Fossilized Amber, Abandoned Coral, Blueprint Sketch and Cracked Piastachio

Black pigment ink, Glitter Glue, Tim Holtz Stamp, Art Journal

I created a water colour background with Distress Inks.  I worked with Fossilized Amber, Abandoned Coral, Blueprint Sketch and Cracked Piastachio.  Stamped detail was added with black pigment ink.
Glitter Glue highlighted some of the stamped details and fussy cut elements.
The Bella! Mini Theme Cosmos was perfect for embellishing and a few elements along with the sentiment were cut from the Manifest paper. These were layered over the top of the water colour background along with a sprinkling of Crafters Choice bling. 
Thanks so much for dropping by,
Till next time

Metal Embellishments

Hi  Everyone!!
 I thought that I would start off the new month with a layout showcasing Bella! Mini Themes Steamworks and Dapper.
Steamworks Clockwork features as my base - I just love the clock work design and kept the embellishing minimal to showcase it's intricate beauty.

Cut a strip from Bella! Bits and Bob Dapper approx 5cm x 13cm - plaid pattern side 

From the Segments paper remove the Ocean Spirit sentiment (top right hand corner), Fussy Cut the balloon element (directly below Ocean Spirit) and top hat, corrugated steel pattern (bottom left hand corner), and the 'Fathers are a work of heart' sentiment.   

From the Imprint paper fussy cut cogs (along the bottom), fob watch and compass elements
 Position Plaid pattern strip, Ocean Spirit sentiment under photo
Slip fussy cut balloon under top right hand edge of photo, then slip under the corrugated steel pattern  piece of paper - - refer to picture of placement

 Layer fussy cut cogs, top hat, fob watch and compass elements along the bottom right hand edge of photo - attach with foam tape to add a little dimension.
Attach sentiment.
Further embellish with coordinating metal embellishments.

Ruby RockIt: Happy Days


Sharing some more card inspiration for Ruby Rock-It today.
Making an easel card is super fun and a great creative spin on a classic card  The base construction of them is similar, so try mixing them up by changing the shape. 

Ruby Rock-It!! Products:
Fundamentals Basic A6 Cards FL62 Black, Ruby Rock-It!! Happy Days - Bouquet ,Chit Chat & Patchwork, Distress Ink 

SpellBinder Die, Foam Tape
I have used a Fundamental Basics A6 card  and a spellbinders die  to create the base easel:

Place one edge of the die on the fold of the card and run through the die cutting machine to create the  hexagon shape.  
Die Cut a single hexagon shape from one side of another A6 card - Unfold the card and place the die in the middle of one side.  Run through the machine. 
**Tip - the window effect created creates a great peak a boo card for another creation** 
Fold one side of the folded card in half
Attach adhesive tape to the folded edge and place the single die cut shape  over the top.
 Cover the top and bottom of the card with pieces die cut from Happy Days Chit Chat.
Ink the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  
 Fussy cut flowers from Happy Days Bouquet and larger bloom from Patchwork
 Attach across the top right hand corner and bottom left base corner with foam tape.
 Fussy cut the branch and bird from Happy Days Chit Chat 
Attach over flowers - Add a sentiment also cut from the Chit Chat paper. 

Thanks so much for dropping,
Happy Creating!!

Ruby Rock-It!! Exploding Box Card

Hello Everyone!

Popping in today sharing a fun exploding box card creation. 
 With Mother's Day just around the corner, this would make a beautiful card from the heart for the one who is dearly loved and so very special.
Ruby Rock-It! Products:
Bella! Kraftastic KG43 Glittered Wigwam, Bella! Botanical CHE60 Montage
Felt Flowers, Toadstools, Miniature Fence, Stick On Lady Bug, Ribbon, Decorative Corner Punch, Sticker Sentiment 
The box was created from Bella! Kraftastic Glittered Wigwam.  The weight of the cardstock was perfect for creating a great structural base.

To create the box:
Trim the cardstock down to 7" x 12"
Remove 1.5" from one side (don't discard, this will be used to create inserts for the inside of the card)
Score at 2.5" intervals (score marks should be at 2.5", 5", 7.5 and 10")
There now should be 3 intervals measuring 2.5" and 1 that measure 1/2"
Cut along the 1/2" score line 3" down from the top.  Cut horizontally across the 1/2" distance to remove and create a tab.
Cut along the other score lines 3" down from the top.
Score along the cut edges and fold down 3 of the flaps.  The one that is not folded will create the back  support of the card.
Fold flat along all score lines, attach together with some adhesive tape along the created tab edge.
To create inserts:
Trim 1.5" x 7" piece in half.
Score 1/2" in at either end for each piece.
Fold at score lines and attach to the folded sides in the top of the card - these will be used to adhere embellishments to

Now the fun part!
   I cut out floral and toad stool elements from Botantical Monatage paper.  I attached to the top of the card flaps and then punched the corners with a decorative corner punch.
 Add the larger felt flowers first with the miniature fence and toadstools.
I then attached some more fussy cut elements from the Montage paper the flowers, fence and toadstools to create a happy garden scene.

Happy Creating!
