We all have tons of summer fun photos – in the pool, at the lake and if you are lucky, at the beach! New to Scrapbook.com, Ruby Rock-it Designs has the perfect solution for all of these summertime photos: The Summerhouse collection . I had never heard of this manufacturer, so I did a little web surfing.
Ruby Rock-it Designs was launched in the United States in 2009 by Fynmark Australia. They now have an office in Chicago and offer cardmaking supplies as well.
The Summerhouse collection includes ten double-sided patterned papers, one die-cut paper, two chipboard alphas, rub-ons, buttons, ATC cards, felt frames, ribbons, photo corners, crochet flowers, butterfly and flower stickers, metal appliqués, and a die-cut narrative pad. Of course, I wanted the entire collection! I narrowed down my favorites and finally placed my order at Scrapbook.com:
- double-sided patterned papers – Streak, Glow, Soiree, Journal, Green Die Cut Square and Hot, Hot, Hot
- Bitty Buttons – 24 pieces
- ATC Cards – 14 pieces
I really love the colors in The Summerhouse collection: greens, blues, oranges…it just screams summer fun! The patterned papers have a real worn look to them which really gives you that laid-back feeling of summer.
The quality of the products that I chose to work with was top notch: heavyweight cardstock, buttons that include glitter and gems (with that fun vintage vibe that still seems to be all the rage!) and the ATC cards are perfect for journaling and include two sheets that are die-cut.
I put together a layout and a card very quickly with the coordinating products. I was also pleased to see that I could incorporate existing supplies from other manufacturers very easily.
