It's a Ruby-Rock-it kind of Monday...


Hi Everyone ... i have a quick card to share that i did with some of the brand new
Ruby Rock-it papers that i recently got... It was super easy to do too.


Just in case you didn't know Ruby Rock-it has some really cute kraft papers in different 
patterns and i  love using them.  For this i used some of the Kraftastic  papers  
 and layered them on the base of the card and then used one of the tags that go
with all of it to build a pretty flower spray on.  I used the small adhesive glitter letters in
silver and that pretty black rhinestone swirl under all of it.  I really love the flowers and
i added a small fancy Spellbinders doily die under all of it and a bit of foliage on the sides
to make it even more feminine looking.  The seam binding ribbon is from
the Really Reasonable Ribbon store and it comes in lots of colors so be sure
and give them a look too.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a super good Monday!!

It's off to work i go to the castle today....

RRR Aqua/ Coral challenge ....

Today i have a quick and simple project up using the new April Ribbon Club
assortment.  Our challenge is to use these colors in any project that you can 
think up so i picked up a cute flagged chalkboard at my local hobby store
that i thought was cute and added lots of pretty flowers and ribbons to it.


There is a couple of the ribbons that i really loved so i used those 2 at the
top and tied a pretty double bow with both of them.  One is the
Satin with Grosgrain edge and the other is Roses with scalloped edge in aqua.
 Then i slipped in a few flowers and some swirls that i cut with a Spellbinders die.


Across the top i used Spellbinders new die by Becca Feeken called Swirl Bliss.
I wanted to create a metal finish like cooper to match it so i used copper ink
from Tsukineko and inked the entire piece and then embossed it with clear detail
embossing powder from Stampendous.  The top of the chalkboard came with
a jute tie but i changed it out with some wire that i had and made that little
swirl on the side to hold a piece of chalk so i can write messages on it.

If you ever have any questions be sure and leave me a comment and i
would be happy to try and answer it if i can... Thanks so much for stopping
over today and hope you have a very nice week...

New Cardabilites #121 is up today...

Yay there is a brand new sketch up today on the Cardabilites blog and
it was a really fun one to use.  Our sponsor this time is Dies R Us so be
sure and stop by and see all the neat things they have and join along with
us for a chance to win too.  It would be awesome if you won!!


I love this sketch with the borders on both sides of it, so start my card
 i used a punch to create the edges with my Basic Grey Fresh Start
paper pad and then i added lots of elements in the middle like the
sketch has.  I used a few Spellbinders dies in different styles to
create the base and then added flowers and some of the die cuts
from the collection too.  It looks like a pretty bouquet of flowers
to send to someone that will never get old.  It was really fun...

Here is the new sketch so that you can play along too.


Here is my supply list :
Spellbinders: Sprigs and Blooms One
Prima: Flowers and say it in crystals
MME: Miss Caroline
Basic Grey: Fresh Cut 6x6 paper pad and elements
Imagine/Tsukineko Versa Magic in Aloe Vera

it's time for our RRR Blog Hop....

It's time for our RRR Blog Hop today and this month we have a beautiful ribbon
assortment to use.  It's filled with gorgeous aqua's and peachy pinks so you will
love all the things our team has done with it to share.

April Ribbon Club Assortment

So if you started on the hop from the beginning here then you should
have hopped over from Heathers blog......


 For my challenge project today i decided to look ahead to summer and create
a fun little mini book filled with lots of folds and pockets that i can put my
vacation pictures in.  I love having a few types of these books so i can be ready when
i get all my photos done and put them inside of it.  The papers i used 
for this are from My Minds Eye and i also used the wood pieces and the stickers
that came with the set.  I really like the colors and patterns on this one.


To make this book you just need some 12x12 card stock- and cut it in half to make
it 6x6 when you fold it.  The back is started with a criss cross and then i added
envelopes and other papers to make pockets.  I used bits of ribbon to create the
brightly colored borders on it and decorate each of the pages.  I also used a sheet
of Basic Grey adhesive letters and stickers that went with it perfectly.

  
On this one you can see the polka dot gross grain in the set.


Here you can get more of an idea of how the basic book looks.  On the
tan paper sides with arrows i cut pockets for travel goodies and photos and
then used a pretty piece of checkerboard satin ribbon to decorate each of them.  I also
added a few photo chipboard pieces and adhesive words i wanted.


This page has the cutest red travel paper and i thought that a piece
of ivory crochet lace would look really good on it- so i glued it to the side
and added another of the photo boxes to fill in later.  There is so many
more pages but it's good to get you inspired to do your own for the summer
and get ahead.  Can't wait to go on a new adventure......


And....Now it's time for you to hop on over to Jenn's blog for
another cute idea to use the new April ribbon club collection .
I am sure she has something amazing to share with all of you.

Have a wonderful and crafty day.... Teresa

RRR Things with wings challenge


There is a new challenge up this month for RRR and it's a fun one.
It's anything with wings so it can be birds or angels and anything
else you can think of that you would like to create to do.

My card is done with a beautiful stamp that i got from Stampendous.
It has gorgeous words at the bottom and these beautiful wings on it.
I stamped it in silver and embossed it with silver to make it stand out
and then i did a second set and fussy cut it and popped it up with
foam dots.  The papers are from Basic grey and the ribbon
is ivory metallic edged satin ribbon.  It's one of my favorites and
comes in so many pretty colors.  You are going to love them all.

So... that's it for today but be sure and link up your project on the
RRR Challenge so we can see what amazing things you make.

Have a wonderful Easter weekend :)
