Weddings and Romance with Ruby Rock-It

Hello Ruby Rock-It fans!  This is Linda Kretz  with a wedding layout using the beautiful new summer release papers from Ruby Rock-It  Weddings are special events for everyone, especially because they focus on new beginnings and memorable moments in time.  My layout is memorializing that moment for my daughter, Holly, and her wedding 17 years ago at the Rose Garden in Oakland, California.

I chose these wonderful black and silver papers as background for my black and white photo, with pink accents for color and contrast.  The black, silver and pink die cuts around the picture lend focus,  and the other touches of bling, decoupage flowers, antique pink lace. and pearlized hearts are accents to pull the layout together.  I added pink and white tulle to emphasize the lovely flowers. 
I hope you will experiment with the awesome Ruby Rock-It summer release papers to create romantic memories of your own!
Supplies: (Ruby Rock-It)

I had lots of fun creating this burlap wall hanging, using products from both Ruby Rock-it and The Twinery.  The combination of paper, embellishments and Baker's Twine made a perfect July scene!  I wrapped twine around each balloon and around the background of the burlap, embossed the Carnival King pager, chose cardstock embellishments from the same range, added some ribbon, and foam dotted the pieces for dimension!  I hope you like my project and got some ideas for your own creations!

So Much Fun

Hi everyone!  I am truly honored and excited to be one of the new Design Team members for Ruby Rock-it!  My first project is a wall hanging featuring Hannah, my granddaughter, and her face painting at a local carnival.  She is a sweetheart, and is obviously delighted with the result !
I love the papers and embellishments from Ruby Rock-it and the Bella Embossed Cardstock for the background, which I highlighted with white ink.  I used the Framed cardstock for the carnival laundry line, and the Garlands for the bottom accent.  A piece of acrylic created a small window for the bottom focus. I had a lot of fun playing with this wonderful paper range.  I hope you enjoy it as well!
