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

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
