I thought I should share a demo that I held at Spotlight sometime ago for Ruby Rock-it. It was a hands on session making using the Decoupage range.
It was a pleasure to work with many curious children and we all had a blast.
Here are some of the cards that we made:
I love how easy it was for the kids to make their own cards and the colors are so happy.
Today I have a tutorial to share with you. Paper dollies are pretty but they are usually white or pink. That’s just so common so I thought it would be nice to make some to make whatever paper I’m using for my layout.
Here are the basic steps:
1. Trim your paper into a square.
2. Fold the square into a triangle.
3. Fold it again into a smaller triangle
4. If you are able to fold further, fold your triangle into a smaller triangle.
5. Draw a curve at the top of the triangle.
6. Trim off the curve and you have a basic dollie.
7. Continue cutting tiny holes into your triangle if you more details on your dollie.
8. Open it up and admire your hardwork.
Here is a layout I made with my own handmade paper dollies:
Do have a try. Drop me a link to your work if you made some dollies too.
Some days I fall into a design rut and nothing seems to work. On days that I need a boost of inspiration, I try to attempt a small project to get my creative juices moving. Artist Trading Cards or ATCs have been around for a long time. I like that they are small – 3X4″, which make them less intimidating compare to a 12X12″ layout.
Here are some that I did for my RRBF assignment last month.
Here are some closeups of the ATCs:
So when you feel uninspired, trying working on something small and it might just be the start of something beautiful.
So excited to finally be able to share the good news. I’m on the new Ruby Rock-it Creative Team for 2014 !! I can’t wait to work with all the talented ladies. Congratulations to everyone.
It has been a good year working for Ruby Rock-it and I had a blast working with all the talented ladies in the team.
Here is my last project using the lovely Fusion papers. I like that the opposite sides of each sheet of paper is a contrasting pattern so it looks great when you make them into pinwheels for a party or just as decorations.
I love how you can give a simple pinwheel a more adult feel just by cutting a fancy edge instead of the usual straight lines.
Sharing the cards I made for RRBF this month. Since there are Birthday Cards, I wanted to add lots of happy colors to the cards. I hit the left card with mist. Lots of mist ! The effect just made me happy.
I added curled strips of paper to compliment the party hat. It reminds me of party streamer and party popper.
You can’t go wrong with glitter for a Birthday Card and these die cuts have just the right amount of happy written all over them.
Hello September and good bye to the month of August. I had a blast with my Ruby Rock-it projects last month and thought I would summarize all of them in one post.
** click on each title to read the details post **
1. Paper Envelopes
I love the new Celebrate line. Elegant yet understated. The contrasting damask pattern compared the the lines of the other side of the paper gives the envelopes a nice surprise when it’s opened.
2. Tiny Birdhouse
I was inspired to create a little birdhouse after looking at various mantelpiece displays on the internet. I love the pastel colors of the line and the rest just fell into place.
Don’t forget that you can still catch the projects over at the Ruby Rock-it Bella! Fundamentals blog.
Enjoy your day.
