  • Christen Baker

    I love how all Club Ruby members do so many varied layouts and cards with the same sheets of paper. Not two are ever alike and being a Club Ruby member you are never short of inspiration and ideas not only from Megan and the Design team but all members posted projects as well.

  • jeannie

    Videos are the best. To be able to actually watch how you contruct a page or card is so helpful. Also to see you use products that are new is very helpful when deciding if I should buy it or not. By the way, took your advice on the scrapin easel– and I LOVE it!!!!

  • Sherri Braun

    What I like the best about the Design Team projects is how they show each person’s individuality and creativity. You can give two people the same products to create something with and they will both come up with something different. I love that!

  • Donna Dial

    I love all the different and creative ideas members come up with. So much talent! I love love the videos.
    thanks for all the hard work and sharing.

  • Monica Hammond

    I love the colors the design team is using this time, so many yellow-red shades in combinations I would not normally consider using. I think the team has catered for everyone’s taste there is a Inspirational Project for everyone!

  • Betsy Rowan

    Besides the great project tutorials, the thing I love most about ARS kits is the different products. You get to try stuff from different companies instead of everything in the kit being from one company. Keep up the great work.

  • Cynthia Jordan Brown

    The designers creativity and incredible talent that shows in their projects provides me the inspiration to create my
    my own projects.

  • Teresa

    They all are so cute and clever. My favorite is the little witch sitting on a pumpkin card. She is adorable! I am inspired to get going with my Halloween cards!

  • kathy h

    I love the fact that a pattern for a snowman was used for Pumpkins …….it is so cute and I can see myself scraplifting that one. Love all the creativity. It helps me to be more creative w/ my own ideas!!! Thanks.

  • Kimberly

    I really like the videos. You can pause it, “rewind” it, pause again, rewind again……till you get it right! Makes everything so doable and much easier! Thanks for the wonderful talent.

  • Carolyn Hartle

    I like the turorials that you have and the different products that you use to introduce them to us.The kits of the month are great. I havent’t had the opportunity to order one, but I will.

  • Nina

    I love the videos. I am a visual type person that I need to see how things are put together so I can try to duplicate. You and your team are so good at this .

  • Sharan Grubbs

    I really love the videos and enjoy when the designer gives sources for the products they use. I am a member of CRD and enjoy it all!!!!

  • Bernie

    I love seeing the videos, it makes every thing so easy to follow and the design team has such easy and beautiful ideas. The halloween designs are just super. Keep up the great fun work.

  • Ann Diehl

    I love the variety of the projects! So many wonderful ideas – all different – but all great! Your design team is soooooo talented.

  • Johanne L.

    They’re all so talented. Love the fact that there is a lot of different projects, layouts, cards, etc. The frog, to cute. I enjoyed very much seing them. Thanks for the chance.

  • Cheryl Hauber

    I love that everyone makes different types of projects. While I usually only am making cards, I can still get a lot of inspiration from the other projects.

  • Linda W

    The videos are great. Reviews of new products and watching them in action are helpful. All the layouts posted above are creative and chock full of ideas that I can scrap-lift, mix or incorporate into some of my own designs.

  • Marilyn

    Wow! What a great group of projects…and you want me to comment on one??? It’s too hard to do, so many wonderful designers, so many wonderful ideas! I guess if I have to pick one, the gate fold card or is it a box? Not certain, but that definitely caught my eye. Thank you for sharing all these great projects…a good kick in the pants of motivation!

  • Linda C.

    I love Halloween so I adore all the projects created. So many wonderful ideas! The videos are so helpful. I watch the DVDs I have purchased quite often also. TFS

  • Sharon

    Definitely your AWESOME video’s and your dvd’s. I luv all the project that your AMAZING design team, have come up with.

    U ROCK, Megan. πŸ™‚



  • Gail Scott

  • Lisa Doroba

    Hummm, let me think, what do I like about the design team posts????? EVERYTHING!!!! LOL I get such an excitement from the shear inspiration from their items!!

  • angela rogalski

    Well I love the way you take your time to explain what you are doing, you don’t rush through the videos and that is exactly what I need. Your design team is great they are very talented and all of you put together just inspire me. Thanks for all you do and share.

  • Judy

    I love the tutorials and videos that accompany most of the projects that the design team post. Their talent and creativity is amazing and helps to spark my creativity after watching. Thanks for this club and finding such great talent to inspire all of us.

  • Crystal Nichols

    To be honest, the projects are all great, but I love the fact that with life happening all around, they are dedicated to getting projects out there all the time.

  • littlen

    i like when there is a tutorial included with the project, especially video tutorials. all the designers are so creative and have amazing talent.

  • 0Rosalind`

    I have become an adviv reader on this site. I love all the projects that comes to the minds of the team. I am tryly loving the fangs on the projects.

  • SandyPanda

    Megan, I love how each designer has their own style so that if you see something that fits with your style you immediately know that is a project for you! On the flip side I love seeing all of the other styles that inspire me to try something different and step out of my “craft box”!! Thanks so much to all who contribute!!

  • Linda G

    I love the variety of products in the kits and the way you show us all the new fun stuff. Also, by having more than one designer we get a lot of different ideas on how to use the products.

  • Terry

    You have a great design team. I love how the things they make spark my creative brain. I love Brittens shadow box and the card that Jessica did with the witch and flowers, love it. Thanks for sharing the talent you all have!! I love cheking in everyday to see the fun things you have to share. I also LOVE my cricut a-z #2!!! THANKS!!

  • Jan Sprague

    Absolutely nothing not to love!! It gets the creative juices flowing seeing what other crafters have done. I want to be in my craft area instead of doing ho-hum chores.

  • Shirley E.

    I like them for inspiration and ideas ( I use a lot of them)!
    The excitement I get from just browsing!
    Don’t like the Jealousy I feel though!
    You ALL are so TALENTED!!
    Thanks for everything, the videos, project picture, etc. You all Rock!

  • Debby J

    I love all the projects-and considering the fact that I don’t like Halloween these projects are all adorably!! Thanks for sharing on a daily basis all the great things about Club Ruby,

  • Leslie

    Your design team always inspires me to get back to my scrapbooking with such awesome ideas. I love seeing how different all the projects are and take ideas from all of them. Thank you and your team for all you do for us.

  • Angela W

    I loved all the projects that the Design Team made. I think the one thing that I like the most about the projects is how all the paper cordnates with with each other.

  • Edwina Brown

    I love the frog! He is adorable! I love Java Jen’s card with the flower too. I really enjoy the videos teaching techniqus that I may not know about. I have learned a lot that way.

  • Cathy McClellan

    I am not originally creative. I have a hard time coming up with ideas from scratch. Your ideas are wonderful and help me think out side the box and use the products that I already have and didn’t know what to do with them as well as see new ideas about new products. Thanks for helping my creative juices, or lack of them get a jump start. Cathy

  • Colleen

    I love that they create more than just cards and scrapbook pages with the kits, not that I don’t like everything they do, it is great, but sometimes something different is good. Great job design team!!!

  • Mary Jane

    I love all the colorful papers, embelishments and the way each item was put together! All who designed these are so talented. I must say that I like video’s to see how things are done. Whoever does the video always has some hints that you don’t get by looking at pictures. Thanks to all of you for your inspiration.

  • Jennifer

    I can’t choose a “best” project, so I’ll choose my favorite aspect instead. I love how diverse the inspiration is from the same set of supplies…cards to shadow boxes! I don’t know whether the “google eyes” are part of the kit, but I love the way they were used in the scrapbook layout!

  • Robyn C

    Thank you so much for sharing your creativity. I truly enjoy seeing what each of the designers come up with. They have the same product, general theme but the projects are so varying that it gives you different perspectives on what you can do with the same basic supplies. I enjoy the 12×12 layouts but also the 3-D items; video tutorials are great too.

    You have a great team that gives lots of inspiration.

  • Jeannette aka Jnett

    I love the frog. I do a lot of frogs for my grand kids with expressions like ‘un-frogettable’ you etc. Frogs are so versatile and fun. This one looks like I could even do that. Will have to check my pack of Cut Mates to see if I have enough green left to do it. Thanks for all the great inspiration.

  • Danita

    I’ve learned so much by watching these videos. I need to make notes when watching, because I frequently go back to get the names of some of the products that are used!

  • Sue Fulton

    I, too, am a video lover! Megan’s videos are what I love best about Club Rudy. The videos and the kits keep me coming back for more. From this collection of ideas, the designs are so creative. All the ideas are amazng!

  • Debra Renwick

    I am a very visual person, i luv the tutorials the best. I am still learning something new everyday and find the videos are my greatest inspiration, keep them coming. Everyone here is so talented !!!!!

  • Deeleane Futch

    What’s not to love???? All these projects are AMAZING. Wish I had more time to do more crafting. I think I would totally love the videos.

  • Penny P

    LOVE the frog! It amazes me how the team comes up with so many ideas to share with us. I need the videos to help since I’m a visual person. Thank you for all you do.

  • Leanna

    Like all the design team ideas. So many ideas I would not thought of. That’s the fun of being a Club Rudy
    member, all the great ideas. Thanks so much to everyone

  • Evette K. Ciampo

    All projects are just awesome!! But the FROG card had me smiling for hours. Love the shaped cards that are coming out lately. Just joined your $7 kit club. Looking forward to getting my first kit. Thanks at a chance at winning. ekc

  • Barbara

    Hands down, it is the videos. Not only do they showcase products, but how to use the products. They contains a wealth of tips and techniques as well.

  • Ginger Simons

    I love seeing all the different designs. It gives me inspiration, since I am mostly a scrapbooker, the provide ideas on how to use things in ways that I would never come up with on my own. Thanks for all the hard work!



  • Sue Alg

    My favorite is Cindy’s “beware” scrapbook LO. Looks like it might be simple to create but has a lot of neat embellishments on the page. Love the colors of this month’s kit and the versatility of all the projects that your design team made.

  • Connie Gage

    I love to see the projects, just love them and it helps seeing them and I get such great idea’s from you….plus love to see any new product you may have to use as well, gives me a chance to see what all is out there.

  • Rebecca Francis

    What I like best about these projects: they look like real people did them. I like my scrapbooking to look like a Mom did it. I feel that is has a more personal and touching quality. Thanks for all of your hard work and talent.


  • cheryl

    I love all the design team projects, one kit all those ideas. Love all the inspiration i get here. Britton, I love your shadow box. Thanks for everything designers. You guys are the best.

  • KitnM

    I love the brightness of the projects. The deep rich colors can create darker projects but when they put the brighter colors with that everything just POPS! The tutorials are very helpful for me so that I am not wasting paper when I design something. I typically do cards, in the larger size, so knowing what is fitting on the A2 helps me decide what size to cut for my cards. I love the ideas on how to bring colors together! Thanks to all of you for what you are doing! We are inspired day after day!

  • Sarah G.

    Videos are awesome- Love to watch -step by step how to do something and see what tools are used and how. Love the kits πŸ™‚


  • Eileen P

    Thanks for the description of the pricing of the kits.
    Fall colors are my favorites and I guess I like those orange tags with the gathered circles (?flowers) on them. Could be used year round.

  • Charity Brown

    I love the tutorials…they give me so many different ideas for my scrapbooking and card making projects. I would have to say that my favorite Design team idea is the fang tastic!!! Love it!

  • Amy E.

    I love the way different designers can use the same materials and come up with so many different projects! It reallt speaks to the versatility of the kits…and the designers!!

  • Audrey R.

    I love all your ideas and the inspiration that you provide. When I see something new <i am inspired to create something new and usually something I have never treid before. Your inspiration helps me get unstuck and come up with creativity.
    Thank you so much for sharing all your wonderful and creative knowledge at Club Ruby!
    God Bless

  • Regina

    It is so much fun to see so many projects made from the same kit. Gives me so many ideas that I can use to change up a project for yourself.

  • Sue Anderson

    I like how there is something to appeal to every mood. There are simple projects that are quick and easy, and elaborate ones that are just so elegant and beautiful.

  • Lars Anderson

    I like working on crafts with my wife, but I don’t like the complicated stuff. I like the fact that some of the projects are simple and clean.

  • Anna

    What I love about this post is that there is a varity of differnet methods used. Scrapping, cards and off the page. Then there is the treatment of the projects. Then the layouts of them. They give us so much inspirition. I wish thank you for share these creations from your team.

  • Hilary

    I love the variety – you’ve got scrapbook pages, cards, decor, etc. So it shows that you can get a lot out of the kits, not just a few pages or a few cards and bam you’re done. It’s also great to see the varying levels of difficulty – some of the projects clearly took many hours, and some were quick and easy peasy to do in less than an hour.

  • Stacey

    What’s not to love! So many talented ladies (and a few men) that share their creations with the rest of us! You cannot walk away uninspired…it is just not possible! Thanks Megan for all you do for us! The kits are amazing and your DT showcases them to perfection every month :):)

  • S. Cameron

    I can’t believe all of these wonderful creations were made from the same kit! The design team members have done a fabulous job sharing their unique style of creativity to showcase such an amazing kit! I thank each of them for inspiring me to create!

  • Jennifer Carr

    I love that there are all types of projects shown. I love to have videos to see how each project is made. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Jan Lynn

    These projects are just so darnewd cute and inspirational. I just went to Pumpkin Field Day at the UT education and Research Center here where I live last week and was looking for ideas for my scrap pages. I have to take my grandsons back and take their pictures with the punpkins and goards (over 5000 in the display itseld). Several of these projects gave me ideas that hit the nail right on the head.+

  • Janet Sisk

    I simply adore the cute frog card! He caught my eye immediately. I was happy to see several cards in the mix, too. I don’t really scrapbook (YIKES, I know!). I am a card maker. The gate fold card caught my eye also. Thanks for the inspiration! πŸ˜€

  • Barb A.

    I absolutely love your blog and all the projects that the designers have worked so hard on. They are a real inspiration to me. After looking at their projects, I feel the need to get off my duff and go create something/anything! Thank you to all your designers and you for all your hard work. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  • Shari Miller

    I love the videos you show us new products and if that’s not enough you show us how to us them, I get excited when I watch!!!! Your Design Team are a talented group all the projects were great the gate fold card/box really jumped out at me. Thanks for all the inspriation.
    Be Blessed

  • Judy Bunn

    I just love all the videos. It makes it so much easier for me to see how to do something. I guess I’m a visual person. Everyone uses a distinctive way all their own to make a project. Thanks for all the great ideas!

  • CathyinMN

    I really like the creativity and versatility the DT has in these projects. It’s fun to see what they come up with to help get my creative juices flowing. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway, too.

  • Daphne Held

  • Jamaine Brasseaux

  • Janet

  • Judi Farrell

    What I like best about the design teams Halloween projects that you posted is the fact that they aren’t the typical Halloween layouts. They capture the essence of Halloween without all the yucky stuff that a lot of halloween has to offer! Loved the pumpkin snowman (I may have to steal that) πŸ˜€ and loved the card with the flower. I also enjoyed the cute monster layout. Well, actually, I enjoyed them ALL, but those were a few of my favs!! Thanks for sharing all the great ideas. (I’ll be joining the kit club as soon as I can convince my hubby I need more scrapping stuff!!!! πŸ˜€

  • Annette

    I like Java Jen’s treat box. The design on the front is super cute. Thanks to all the design team for their wonderful ideas. You are a talented group of ladies. Make it a great day:)

  • Rhonda H

  • KATE

    The varied projects made by the design team certainly showcases the range of creativity that is possible with each kit. The projects are all so inspiring letting one know projects can be simple to “fussy” as it pleases you. I’m a little late commenting on Britten’s showcasing the October kit, but I really appreciate the in depth demonstration of what is included. Thanks for all of the work you put into making such awesome kits.

  • Betty Welton

    I totally live with a “To Do ” list. you will find them in my purses, desk, coffee table and kitchen table. This is the cutest one I’ve seen. Will go down stairs tomorrow and it will be my first project. Thanks so much to my fellow design team member. You guys are great. Thanks, Betty

  • Becky

    I just love the variety. Everyone has their own style. You can get ideas from a single project or combine a lot of projects into one idea for your own project. Great job designers!!!!

  • Terresa Wood

    I absolutely love that there is no 2 items alike above, there are so many things you can do with a kit and the design team is definite WOW.

  • Joyce Valenza

    I love the variety of ideas!!! And like everyone else (I’m sure)… I am always looking for new ideas.
    I really love the Pumpkin Snowman!!!! I love snowmen and to make one from pumpkins for a fall layout or
    card is an awesome idea!!!!

  • mary beth i

    I liked looking over the different projects for inspiration – I liked the ones that are over textured. I think this gives extra depth to the finished piece and makes it more interesting. My favorite is the flower by java jen

  • Michelle
