Ruby Rock-It Carnival Queen Giveaway

Recently, I was given the opportunity to try out some products from an Australian company called Ruby Rock-It. In addition to papers and stickers, they have a fantastic variety of embellishments – all sorts of paper and fabric die cuts, pockets, printed cards and stitched paper garlands – that made it hard to decide which to try first.

Ruby Rock-It is sponsoring a giveaway where one lucky Crafts ‘n things blog reader can win their new Carnival Queen line. I think you will love all of the fun images that are incorporated into these products as much as I do.

Who doesn’t love a carnival or fair? Between all the rides, games, and interesting exhibits, not to mention the seemingly endless variety of tempting things to eat, there is usually something to make everyone happy. To be entered in the giveaway, leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite thing to do, see, or eat at a carnival by Monday, May 6, 2013. Winners will be announced here on May 7th.

My favorite carnival treat would have to be cotton candy. (We were at a festival in Maine last summer where I tried a version made from maple sugar and it was completely addictive).

I thought it would be fun to use this line to create a party set. These products could easily be adapted to all sorts of parties or showers, and they are versatile enough to be used on baby- or girl-themed projects too. (If you are looking for a similar line with bolder colors, check out the Ruby Rock-It Carnival King collection.)

The embellished picks come in several different varieties and I used them as-is to decorate cupcakes – doesn’t get much easier than that. They would also be adorable on the front of a card or gift bag.

Every single piece in the collection has wonderful detail. The ticket stubs in the background are included in the die-cut pack.

The popcorn bags were really easy to create using double-sided scrapbook papers and a box template. The hardest part was deciding which embellishments to add.

An easy party favor is a cellophane bag filled with candy or other treats and topped with paper. Staple the bag closed, apply double-sided tape to the paper and fold in half over the bag. I used foam adhesive under the die-cut embellishments to add more dimension.

This is a recycled tin that was covered with paper and decorated to become fun gift packaging.

It really doesn’t take long to add a few special touches that can have a big impact on your celebration. Let us know if you give some of these ideas a try.


Happy Crafting!

  1. My favorite thing to eat at a carnival is pop corn and turkey legs. I don’t like rides, so I enjoy watching people scream!

    Love the color combination of these papers! Thanks for the chance!!

  2. LOL! At my age I still love going on carnival rides. In fact my son thought he would get me by insisting I go on a certain ride with him. It was wild and I almost lost my prescription glasses. When it was over I said let’s do it again and he passed. Of course if the carnival has either funnel cakes or elephant ears I have to indulge. I am looking forward to taking my grandchildren to carnivals. :-)

  3. I’m with you, first thing popped into my mind
    was cotton candy.

    Beautiful collection, thanks for the chance to win.

  4. I love cotton candy also, along with the smells of funnel cake and seeing all the bright lights from the ferris wheel. Thanks for sharing this beautiful collection with us – really like the colors and images!

  5. WOW – love your fun party treats!!!
    My favourite thing to eat is Cotton Candy too, we call it Fairy Floss here – yum yum. Of course, you cannot go home without a ride on the Ferris Wheel too.
    Thank you for the chance to win this fab prize :)

  6. I go to carnivals for cotton candy and a funnel cake! Then I just roam around and see if any friends are there and catch up with them.
