Hi Ruby Fans this is Jenifer here with you today to share my Beyond the Page project with you. I am in the middle of redecorating our Master Bedroom and I am going with a very rich classic look with Blues, whites and golds. I wanted to create a special piece to go on this little wall by the door, so that every morning when my Husband wakes up he would have something nice to read before starting the day.
Here is a close up of the bottom Flower/Flourish cluster. Flowers and flourishes are a perfect addition to any project. I hope you give them a try on your next project.
In case you haven't heard, we have a NEW home right here!
Another month has rolled over and we inch closer to the later part of the year. How are you traveling with your Life Albums?
This month Caylee and Mira have brought some fabulous pages using the Empire Bebe collection, showing off their summer fun. While Aimee and I sit it out here in the winter deluge of storm clouds and cold winds. Which ever season you are in, we hope you are crafting a great life...
Here's my week 19, when I went for a scientific conference to a lovely Ksiaz Castle. Since i didn't have my camera there - pictures in my album only cover perparing time and the castle itself (from the promo materials :D), but the conference was super great! I met a new friend from China (Hao), learned a lot of new things in Geoinformatics and had a fun time with my University coleagues!
And when I came back there were a few surprises waiting for me, and what i liked the most was the newest KUKBUK - my favorite cooking magazine :)
Weekend was all about my little cousin Alice, cause we were celebrating her first Holly Communion. I think this week was 100% active - just the way i love it!
Good morning, welcome to Tuesday Tutorial with June. I'm going to show you a simple mini album that you can make in a jiffy.
First you need to get all your supplies ready:
- 6 pieces of 6X6" double sided patterned papers - these are the insides of your album - 2 pieces of 6X6" the same patterned paper for your album covers - 1 strip of 6X3" paper for your album spine - 1 strip of 6X12" cardstock scored at 1" intervals
Next, glue the strip of paper you have reserved for the album spine.
Glue on the two pieces of patterned paper for the album cover on each side of the spine and you now have a mini album.
Ta-da !!! It's now ready to be decorated.
So much can change in three years. I choose these three photos from three separate years in our joint life, with each representing something big. The first, our engagement, the second our wedding, and the third, our adventure living in another country. We are such different people in each of these times. It's amazing how life changes so quickly. It makes me wonder how different we will be when we look again in 30 years. It's scary. And exciting. I can't decide which one it's more of but I do know that I'm going to be treasuring each new moment.
The take two sketch this month was very detailed, which made it so much easier to just pick my papers and construct. I take a lot of photos for instagram so I printed a series of two square photos to the same size as the essence bebe cut apart blocks in order to use a block as the third picture. This was the first of many cut apart sheets I used to construct this layout. That’s what I love the most about this system, it makes scrapping so easy. Layering the cut aparts gives great dimension to the layout and reduces the amount of journaling the page needed. The finishing details came from a small fabric flag I had floating around, a touch a grey mist splatters and no layout of mine would be complete without the essence gems. I seriously can’t get enough.

We are SO very excited to announce our June guest designer...she is such a sweet and talented gal, and also a Ruby Rock-it DT Alum!
Here's a little bit about her...to refresh your memories!
My name is Jodi Wilton, and I live in Fonthill, Ontario, Canada. I have been married to my husband for 10 years, and have three wonderful kids (my main scrappy subjects!). I have the pleasure of running my own daycare from my home, and have been doing this for over 6 years. Some of my favorite things to do is scrapbooking (of course!), going to the movies, and when time and energy permits- going to the gym!
I first got interested in scrapping when I worked on a cruise ship. I wanted a way to document my travels, and the millions of photos that I was taking! I didn’t become a serious scrapper though, until my sister passed away tragically in a car accident. I wanted to create an album for me and my kids to remember her by. From that point on, I have been scrapping every moment I can get. I am so thrilled to be guest designing this month for Ruby Rock-it! Thanks so much for having me!
These sneaks are just gorgeous, aren't they? Join us at the end of the month for her full reveal...
You can find out more about her and her work here.
Thank you for stopping by and making Ruby Rock-it a part of your creative day!
This month over at Ruby Rock-it we are celebrating Fatherhood and Fathers. I'm glad my kids have a very supportive dad that is willing to spend all his free time with them. He is always there for them learning and growing together.
For today's layout, I've gone towards the earthy tones.
