We've been having fun mixing up the ranges we have in stock at Ruby Rock-it and have created this cute family mini album with the Summerhouse range, some Kraft embellishments from our Fundamentals range and some brightly coloured cardstock. We'll be uploading this album project onto our website next week It's quite a challenging project as it uses the Scor-pal and incorporates some fancy iris folding. However patience is always rewarded (in papercraft anyway) with something beautiful to behold and you won't be disappointed with this project - more next week. In the meantime for some stunning layouts and beyond the page projects check out our Ideas Gallery on the website for downloadable project sheets.
We're counting down the days now until we get into the hot sunshine of Arizona for Creative Escape. We cannot wait to be refreshed and inspired with this great event. I believe there are still some spots available so check out their website. If you're looking for a bit of a break or a treat for yourself (go on - you deserve it) - this really is the ultimate scrapbooking escape - only 65 more sleeps!

Also woohoo - we're excited Bazzill has taken all the guess work out of matching cardstock to our new patterned papers. You can now colour match our new lines of paper by visiting the Bazzill website at We think you’ll be pretty impressed with the results – thank you Mr Bazzill!!

Oooh this photo is just sooo cute! This is one of those layouts where you don't want to detract too much away from the photo because it's so great. We've used the Summerhouse line with this photo as the colours just work beautifully with the colour of the water. We're adding more layouts and instructions that you can download on our website: so check it out too for some clever ways to use the new paper collections.

And now for the instructions (or as we like to call them "destructions"):

· Summerhouse Lime die-cut cardstock
· Summerhouse Soiree cardstock
· Summerhouse Sultry cardstock
· Summerhouse Flutterbies
· Summerhouse Florets
· Black Chipboard Alphabet
· Icons rub-on
· Summerhouse photo corners

Also needed:
· 1 5X7inch colour photo, wet and dry adhesive, midnight blue ink and 2” circle punch

Step 1: Trim your Soiree paper to use as your base. Ink around the outside with blue ink.
Step 2: Cut 5 flowers out from your Sultry cardstock. Reserve a 8 inch long x 1 1/2 inch wide piece of the reverse side for later. Tear down one 8 inch side so it has a torn edge.
Step 3: Cut your lime cardstock in half. Cut again at 9 inches – ensure the lines run horizontally before you cut. Punch a circle from the remaining cardstock.
Step 4: Put a blue photo corner onto the left-hand side or your 5X7” photo and then place your photo onto your lime green cardstock as shown. Trim the cardstock along the bottom edge if necessary.
Step 5: Attach your torn reverse from the Sultry cardstock to the left lime cardstock edge and adhere all down onto your Soiree cardstock as shown.
Step 6: Embellish around the bottom left and right side of your photograph with your Sultry flowers, Summerhouse flutterbies and florets and cardstock circle punched earlier.
Step 7: Complete with chipboard alphabet title and rub-ons.

Have a great week scrapping!
