WOW Embossing Powder and Ruby Rock-It!!!

Welcome everyone!
I hope that you have enjoyed this awesome creative 
journey thus far.
Creative hopping is always such
a fantastic idea booster.

For this hop I decided to make this
pretty little postcard with
all things girl in mind.
Just a quick pick me up sentiment to
let that special friend know that they are 
a WOW friend!

The range of WOW Embossing powders used were Vintage Amethyst for
the background along with a dash of Opaque Bright White, and Clear Gloss Ultra High for
the paper clip and wow veneer.
To go along with all the pretty embossing glitter I used the
Country Cookin range from Ruby Rock-It.

A few projects back I had the chance to play a
little bit as well with Ruby Rock-It Handi Scandi and
yummy Orange Fizz from WOW to dazzle this
wood veneer flower.
So, so, so very pretty!

Thanks so much to WOW Embossing Powder for
letting us here at Ruby Rock-It create with you and much thanks as
well to all fans out there who love doing what we do!
Keep creating and be blessed!

The line itself makes it so simple for everything to look fantastic.

It's Me

Good morning everyone!
It has been so very long since I have done any
kind of photo series.
Things have been so very jammed packed this
way for a long while.
I had stopped taking pictures all together of anything except
for the instagram pic here and there.
I have to say that I miss it greatly.
My poor abandoned camera had been screaming to
snap some new shots so
I squeezed in some time for this little bit.
I simply named the series It's Me.
No, they are not perfect which is real.
I want to be real and not paint some impossible
person that no one could ever be.
This is me in all my imperfections.
I am not the skinnest, prettiest, most flawless thing
in the world and I am fine with that.
Yes, the battle still goes on inside comparing
myself to others and pretty sure that will always be.
It is always going to be a process learning to
love myself just as well and learning to love others.
The journey never ends.
This is me!

Have a blessed day!!!

Anna Griffin Love

Good morning Friday!
We have made it through week two of school and
the little ones are doing great.
Lots of homework which means lots of homework for me.
Didn't I pay my school dues already?!

For me it has been non-stop creating in
the best way.
I now have the honor of designing for the AMAZING
Anna Griffin!!!
I am such amazement of the beauty of her designs.
Pictures just can't due justice at all and 
I have been having such a wonderful time creating.
There are tons of projects in which I would
love to share but let's just start off with a few cards that
were featured in the HSN July show.
It was a nerdy moment for me when
I saw projects of mine on TV.
We say we would never be that way when
something like that comes along but behold we
find ourselves completely silly goofy about it.

This first card focus was on the Cutting Gardens Embossing Folders and Dies.
So very pretty these are that I didn't want to cut into them after embossing.
I especially adore how the leaves came out and look at those
Grace flower stickers.
I used tons of the Grace paper line and embellishments.

For this particular card the focus was on the Autumn Wreath Stamps.
By far this is the coolest stamp system that I have seen.
It allows you to stamp perfect circular images that create detailed wreath designs.
It comes in a set with various designs that can be mixed and matched.

For my final card of today it features the All About Kindness Card Kit.
Everything on this card is from this kit which includes everything
that you would ever need for gorgeous cards.
It is so easy to get that boutique card look with a
few peel and sticks.

I couldn't be more excited about creating for Anna Griffin and
hope to be doing for a while.
Thanks so much for letting me share this fantastic news and
a few creations.

I have not shared pics of our family activities as
of late so I will be posting some of those soon.
Be blessed!

Total Meltdown

Well, well, well it is another mid-week everyone and
I beat a month not posting! LOL!
My little ones are back from their vacation in Tezas as well which
means full speed ahead.
School will be starting back really soon and
mommy is not quite ready for it.
My little Kyra will also be starating pre-school in September.
Sometimes I feel just like my little noodle in
the page below.
Total Meltdown!

Can't you tell that I love this line by Webster's Pages?!
Hello World!
After a day of celebrating her first birthday she
had enough already and wanted out.

I remember this day so clearly.
It took a little bit of icecream to calm things down afterwards.
I cut out tear drops for this page which I thought was super cute and mean all
at the same time.
I also made the mini kites which I am still into.

It is going to be busy for the next few weeks or so getting
everything prepped up and ready to go.
I sure hope that I don't have one of these especially with
Jadon going into the 5th grade this year! 
This is his last year in elementary.

Be blessed all!

Hump Day Inspiration with Webster's Pages

Good morning to everyone!
Has it almost been a month since my last post?!

Well since the little ones are away my hubby and I
have been doing major catching up on
house cleaning and such.
They will be back on the 30th which gives us a
little bit more time to get it all done hopefully.
I have also had quite a bit of creating to do and
just finished a heavy load of assignments.
There are no complaints this way though
hubby might say a few words under his 
breath about the mess I make in the living room. 
He supports me all the way in
spite of it all.

It has been a minute or few since I have
shared any of my projects here and thought today
is as good as any to start again.
Webster's Pages has always caught my eye from
the beginning. I can remember some of their first lines and
believe or not I still have some stashed away!
I never imagined that one day I would have the honor and 
pleasure of being on the design team yet
here I am.
I have used two of their gorgeous lines, Sweet Routine and Hello World, to
create these two projects.
These papers and embellies are so yummy!
Here is a gift box that I created for either invitaitons,
cards, a gift, etc.

I created this page featuring Kyra when she was almost two if
I can recall.
The Hello World line is just so perfect for
the photos of those little ones in our lives.
I just love all the owls and little foxes in this line.
Oh, and look at the onsies design on the paper!
I could on and on crafties.

Well, that will do it for me until next time.
I will not let another month pass by me again if
I can help it without posting.
Thanks for stopping in!
Be blessed!
