Introducing Above Rubies Studio

We are so excited to have the very talented Megan from Above Rubies Studio. She is a master with electronic cutters and using vinyl. We have invited Megan to share her fun videos and great tips with you our readers. You’ll see her popping up here on the Brookie Craft blog!

Now let’s take a minute to get to know Megan better…

My love for scrapbooking led me to the Cricut and then on to the wonderful online world of tutorials. My hope is to add value to this online community with my experience in Scrapbooking, Cardmaking and crafting. Since purchasing my Cricut over a year and a half ago, I have become obsessed with helping others learn the value of all that their Cricut can offer them. The Cricut offers so many options many users don’t know about, and I’m just the girl to show you how to get the most from your Cricut Machine.

I currently have a library of A to Z and 123 Educational DVDs which have helped thousands of people master their craft, machines and other things BETTER! So exited its been such a hugely popular success as teaching is nothing short of a HUGE passion for me. The Cricut Cutting Guide which shows over 500 settings for blade depth, speed and pressure was our very first product that started as (and still is) a free download on our website. We since have expanded to listen to user request and made the Cutting Guide a bound booklet, and iPhone App and Android App too! Paper Layerz is one of my latest creations and it is THE Paper for ALL Die Cutting Machine Users. One sheet of paper and it layers everything in a perfectly color coordinated fashion.

I have had the amazing honor in being asked to make guest appearances at several scrapbook stores, as well as instruct Cricut Classes all over PA. I love doing these things, I am also involved in different design teams both past and present. Above Rubies Studio is here to give you support in your daily life and in crafting. I am truly committed to giving you great resources for all of your scrapbooking, card making and Cricut projects. There is so much I want to say and I want to give you all at once, but one day at a time is where we have to start!

Personalized Photo “Hangers”

Creating with vinyl will have you looking at everything with new eyes.

That’s what Lori Allred did when she saw her husbands dress
pants hangers sitting on the floor one day.

She explained, “I had seen some fun ideas using these pants hangers on Pinterest, but
thought it would be a lot more fun to personalize them with my kids’ names.” 

These are perfect for holding just about anything you can think of…here Lori used her hangers to hold a scrapbook layout with one and an 8×10 photograph with another. We also thought this would be a darling way to feature your kids’ art projects or school work.

We would love to hear what you items laying around your house you’re now looking at in a new way if you just had some Brookie Vinyl.

Share your ideas on what things you’re now thinking you’d like to add vinyl to that you may not have before. One lucky winner will receive a box of Brookie Vinyl ($36.00 value).

1. Pin one or all of these great photos to Pinterest and come back and tell us you did.

2. Leave the same comment on Facebook about what new, fresh ideas you have for adding vinyl.

Contest ends: Friday, June 8th at 1:00pm MST. Winner will be announced by this time next week.
