To recreate:
Trim a piece approximately 4" x 12" from the Dance Queen On Pointe paper.
Affix to the base cardstock -  approximately 2" in from the left hand side.
Fussy cut a few of the floral elements from the Fancy Floral papers.
Arrange floral elements around the side and bottom left hand edge of the smaller photo:
 Arrange a few more of the floral elements around the bottom right hand edge of the larger photo:
Layer some smaller floral elements over the top - attach with foam tape/dots to add dimension.

Ruby Rock-It! True Beauty

Hi Everyone!!
Welcome to the first day of October. Gosh, for me, this year is just whizzing by.
We have just had a recent release of new Bella! Mini Themes - and they are just gorgeous!  
Today I am sharing a project created with Dance Queen and Fancy Floral collection.   

Ruby Rock-It! Products: 
Bella! Fancy Floral PFF06 Blossom, Bella! Dance Queen On Pointe and DQN76 Pose

I have used the Dance Queen papers as the base and the beautiful Fancy Floral paper for embellishing. It is no secret that I love to fussy cut - fussy cut elements are also an awesome low cost way of embellishing a page and the Blossom paper is perfect for fussy cutting! 

To recreate:

Remove the manufacturing strip from Dance Queen Pose - this will be our base background.
Tear a strip from Dance Queen On Pointe and attach in place - slightly up from the middle of the base paper.
Fussy cut a few floral elements ( a mix of larger and smaller) from Fancy Floral Blossom.
Position and attach photo to the left.

Arrange two of the larger fussy floral elements:
Near the top right hand photo corner 
And bottom left hand photo corner
Attach a few of the smaller fussy cut flowers over the top of the previously attached floral element.  Attach with foam tape to add dimension.  
Tuck in a smaller flower under the right hand photo edge and under the bottom cluster - (to fill it out a little)
Die cut some foliage (flourishes) from the On Pointe paper.
Tuck in the side of the top and bottom flowers.
Add a fussy cut butterfly (from my stash) - A cut out stamped butterfly would also look lovely.
 Add a sentiment (title) and you are done!
 Thanks so much for dropping by,
Happy Creating!

Ruby Rock-It! - Travel Bag

Hello Everyone!
Hope everyone is finding a little time for some paper crafting time out. I've been creating with the recently released Bella Mini Theme Wanderlust.  This vintage inspired travel collection will have you reaching for those travel photos.
 The winter weather in my part of the world at the moment makes one think of packing their bags and heading off for a winter sabbatical -  heading north for warmer days.
So let's grab a Wanderlust bag and off we go!!
 Ruby Rock-It! Products:
Wanderlust: THE609 World Map, THE616 Labels
Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Kraft Cardstock, Case/Bag Template - many downloadable options available on the internet

These bags make a great BonVoyage card idea for someone travelling.  You could easily fill them with sweets or smaller chocolate bars.

Trace around the template onto the Wanderlust World Map paper. 
Cut out.
Score along all  fold lines and then gently fold.
Apply adhesive to 'flaps', fold and attach in place.
Add a handle created from Kraft cardstock.
Ink edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
Cut out some tags from the Wanderlust Labels paper.  Attach a couple of the labels to the handle by threading twine through a hole punched through the top of the labels.   
Thanks so much for dropping by,
Happy Creating
