How To Tuesday

Today's "How To Tuesday" post is brought to you today by design team member Guiseppa Gubler.  Here's what Guiseppa had to say ... "Just like many of you, I love flowers and the more varieties I can learn how to make the more fun my layouts become.  I made these simple pleated flowers using
cardstock and patterned paper.  I love these flowers because they go so perfect with this baby layout, but will look good with any layout you do.  Just personalize them."  And here are Guiseppa's step by step instructions ...

First choose how many flowers you want to make and the paper you are going to use.  Cut your paper into 1"x12" inch strips.



Start folding the pleats at the end of the paper.  Make sure you are angling your pleats as you go so they will make a circle.





Adhere the two ends and if you have any excess paper, cut if off.


Add a cute button, brad or some chipboard and brads like I did.


This is how I used my cute pleated flowers!

Mix & Match Monday

Happy Monday everyone!  First things first, for those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving this past Thursday I hope you all had a great holiday weekend.  I have a winner to announce from last week's "Grateful" giveaway.  Thank you to everyone who left comments - I had so much fun reading them!  The lucky winner is ...
Congratulations April! Please email your full name and mailing information to pebblesincdt(at)gmail(dot)com and put "Grateful Winner" in the subject line.  Be sure to include the name of the collection you'd like to receive.  Now on to some Mix & Match projects from our talented design team!

Design team member Stephanie Baxter created this beautiful layout in hues of green, yellow, and pink by combining papers and embellishments from 3 different Pebbles collections.  Here's what Stephanie had to say ... "One thing that I love the most about Pebbles products is the amazing colours, and the best thing of all is that you can totally mix and match colours between the different collections because even though they might not always be the exact same shade, there’s always a sense of unity between the different colour palettes. I wanted this layout to have a bit of a girly feel without going completely overboard with pink, so I took papers from the Cats & Dogs, Twitterpated and New Arrival lines to blend a pink with some greens and yellows. I just love the fact that even the themed lines are so versatile and can be combined with other bits and pieces to make something completely different from the original theme.”

Design team member LG Belarmino chose to focus on yellows, oranges, and browns based on the sweet photo of her baby girl in her amazing layout.  Here's what LG had to say ... "This photo was taken on my birthday last August.  I have had this photo printed since then, but had no opportunity using it because I was waiting for the right paper collection. When we were challenged to mix and match different collections from Pebbles, it gave me the freedom to select the color combination that will work best with this photo of my baby - I chose yellow, orange and brown. With a color combo in mind, I was able to decide which patterned papers, embellishments, and alphabet to use."

More Grateful projects with Jennifer, Kristen, and Ria plus a GIVEAWAY!

Design team member Jennifer Yates created this layout for a friend.  Here's what Jennifer had to say ... "When I saw this photo of my friend Natalie and her family I immediately thought of "gratitude" and how grateful she is to have such a wonderful family. This photo was taken on their vacation in Cabo San Lucas.  I loved combining the Cats & Dogs collection and a little bit of New Arrival Boy collection and giving it a "tropical feel"... showing that they are both quite versatile!"

Design team member Kristen Swain shows her gratitude for her daughter's teacher with this personalized card and canvas.  Here's what Kristen had to say ... "With our theme of gratitude, I just had to make something for my daughter's teacher. The holidays are, of course, a time I want to share my gratitude for the extra steps that her teacher takes and often it's quite difficult to come up with a gift idea. I love the school house color theme of the Tree House collection, and thought that the big bold flowers would be the perfect touch to this quote canvas I was inspired to create. I made the matching card, with the perfect quote already printed on the 3x3 block. Bonus - one gift done before the holidays!"

Design team member Ria Mojica created this lovely layout to remind herself of all of the things she has to be thankful for.  Here's what Ria had to say ... "I have so much to be thankful for, but sometimes, I need a little reminder. I saw this quote in a friend's Facebook status and it rang so true. I enjoyed playing with the different materials from the Tree House collection and using this grid design. In a pinch, a grid design is one of my go-to styles. It never gets old and there's so many other things to do with it -- here I did some stitching for added texture and raised the patterned paper squares on foam adhesive for dimension. Love, love, love how this layout turned out."

More Grateful projects with Eva and Lisa

Design team member Eva Pizarro created this charming mini album to celebrate her gratitude for her husband.  Here's what Eva had to say ... ""My husband is turning 31 next week so I decided to make a mini album to let him know how important he is to me. The Cats & Dogs collection was just perfect! The colors remind me of fall and are great for masculine layout. Doing this mini was so fun, I used  lot of the felt embellishments that come with this collection and they added the perfect touch to the pages.  I also used some of the other collections' stickers and papers. I love how Pebbles makes perfectly matching colors throughout their lines."

""I am particularly grateful this year and couldn't pick just one photo to represent it so I put together a collage of photos that make me grateful.  The design is simple to keep the focus on everything that makes me grateful.  And the Tree House collection is the perfect color combo to go with all the photos!"

Theme: Grateful

Hey everyone!  First things first, we have a winner to announce from last week's Product Parade blog post.  Thank you to everyone who took the time to comment.  There were some really great ideas shared about how you would use our brand new Felt Embellishments in your next project.  And the lucky winner is ...
 
Congratulations Laura!  Please email your full name and mailing information to pebblesincdt(at)gmail(dot)com and put "Felt Embellishments Winner" in the subject line. 

In honor of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, this week on the Pebbles blog is all about being grateful.  Our design team members have created projects to celebrate who (or what) they are thankful for.  On behalf of the entire Pebbles design team and staff I would just like to take a moment to say that we are grateful for you, our blog readers, and your continued support of our products and our design team.  So thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.  :)

Design team member Kim Kesti certainly has a lot to be grateful for and created this beautiful layout and coordinating card to document her gratitude.  Here's what Kim had to say ... "I am certainly blessed by a large healthy family; it felt really good to create this layout to celebrate that gratitude. I cut leaves with my Quickutz dies from a large variety of patterned paper. I love that so many different lines have colors that coordinate. In fact, I made so many leaves that I had extra and decided to make a quick "Thank You" card with the leftovers. What are you grateful for today?”

Design team member Anna Sigga created this sweet layout about the special bond between her daughter and cousin.  Here's what Anna had to say ... "I was really stuck regarding the "Grateful" theme for a while but then it hit me - of course I can create a layout without using the title Grateful, it's the feeling that counts isn't it? So I decided to create a layout about the amazing bond between my older daughter and her cousin Isabella. Isabella lives in Florida so the girls only see each other every 2 years or so - plus my lil one doesn't speak English. I was amazed to see such a strong bond between those two - no matter how far apart they are or the language barrier they managed to create such a strong connection."

Design team member Suzanne Sergi created this sweet card to show her appreciation to her knitting instructor.  Here's what Suzanne had to say ... "I have always wanted to learn how to knit or crochet. Well, my best friend scheduled a private session so I could begin to achieve this goal. I fell in love with all the color and the different textures. It was overwhelming, but I was so happy to finally be able to learn this craft. Our instructor was simply amazing. She used generic terms, and was very patient with me. I am starting out with a scarf, and although I kept having to start over, I knew I had found a new hobby! I wanted to show my gratitude to her. Of course, for me it is through my love of scrapbooking! I created a card to simply let her know, I appreciate the kindness and patience shown to me. The Twitterpated Collection was the perfect color palette to express my gratitude to her."

Free For All Friday

Hey everyone!  We are wrapping up the week with a few "free for all" projects from some of our design team members.

First up, I (Lynn Ghahary) created this quick and easy card using the Cats & Dogs collection.  I love Pebbles rub ons - they go on like butter - and with a sentiment like "just because" I can use this card for any occasion.  And who can resist those adorable dimensional stickers.  I know I can't!

Design team member Wendy Sue Anderson created this beautiful altered frame perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.  Here's what Wendy Sue had to say ... "I wanted to create something fun to put on my table to decorate for Thanksgiving.  I love the colors in the Cats & Dogs collection and thought they would be great for autumn leaves.  I mixed in some browns from the New Arrival collection and came up with this framed piece to display in my family room."

Design team member Savitri Wilder used Pebbles chalk stencils to create this striking baby card.  Here's what Savitri had to say ... "When I saw the stencils I knew right away what I wanted to do. So I grabbed a white piece of cardstock, very lightly traced the umbrella image with a pencil, and with my paper piercing tool I carefully pierced little holes around the outline. I didn't use any sort of measurement, I just simply eye-balled it. After all that was done I grabbed some embroidery thread and while talking to hubby I stitched. A sweet little embellishment later and a sentiment I got this little card. When I think of newborn babies I always think of how sweet and innocent they are and there's nothing more perfect than a little congratulation card which reflects that."

Product Parade: Felt Embellishments plus a GIVEAWAY!

Hey everyone! Today we are focusing on one of my favorite new products from Pebbles ... Felt Embellishments!  Felt Embellishments are a unique way to introduce some texture and dimension to your paper projects.  The best part is that all the hard work is done for you and since the Felt Embellishments are self-adhesive all you have to do is peel and stick.  Felt Embellishments are featured in the New Arrival Girl and Boy collections and the Cats & Dogs collection. 



Design team member Laura Vegas used the New Arrival Girl Felt Embellishments to create these adorable hair clips perfect for the birthday girl.  Here's what Laura had to say ... "When I saw these cute felt flower embellishments, I thought they would be fun to use on hair accessories for little girls. I created these hairclips, using a piece of brown dotted ribbon and a felt flower embellishment for the center. A fun way to give these hairclips to a little girl, is to use them on an actual card. I created this Happy Birthday card, and clipped the hairclips right onto the paper, to act as flowers. They simply pull off the card, ready to be used."

Design team member Mimi Leinbach also used the New Arrival Girl Felt Embellishments on her project.  Here's what Mimi had to say ... "The thing that appeals to me about these new lines is that there are so many fun embellishments and that they are not just for "babies". I have now done several layouts with the New Arrival collections and not a single one of them has been a "baby" layout. I love the new rub-ons...layering them made for a great background for my monogram. The mix of ribbon, journaling spots, alphabet stickers, felt embellishments, candy dots, flowers, buttons in all these great shades make creating a layout so fun and easy. This is my pretty niece Adrienne...the pinks and browns in this line are a beautiful combo for a little girl's layout!"

"I love embellishments, always have, and these super cute felt flowers that arrived with the New Arrival Girl collection just screamed “CARD SET!” They made my job really super easy, they have a foam backing on them too if you don’t need so much dimension they are easy enough to peel off, but for me the more dimension the better."

Whip It Up Wednesday

Happy Wednesday everyone! Is the week halfway over already? The days are flying by and if you're short on time (like I am) then you'll love today's post. I challenged some of our design team members to whip up up a project in 30 minutes or less.

Design team member Melinda Spinks usually takes her time when creating projects so keeping her project to less than 30 minutes was a real challenge for her.  I'd say she aced it with flying colors, how about you?  Here's what Melinda had to say ... "When Lynn first presented me with the challenge of doing a project in 30 minutes I laughed ... I have never done anything in under 3 hours, even a card! So I took up the challenge and decided I needed a plan. My daughter came up with the idea as she wanted to give a gift to a friend who's gorgeous old dog had been ill recently. So the project was chosen, paper and embellishments at the ready, tools sharpened and in-hand, stop-watch set to 30 minutes and I was off! I must admit there was some fast and furious cutting and sticking, punching and chalking but I did it and had exactly 1 minute 27 seconds to spare!

How To Tuesday

For today's "How To Tuesday" post design team member Deena Wuest shows us how to create this adorable rewards chart.  Here's what Deena had to say ... "To reward positive behavior in our children, I created this Rewards Board. If I catch them doing something good (like doing an extra chore without being asked, saying something encouraging to a friend or helping a sibling), I will tuck a little reward inside of their pocket. What goes in the pockets? Stickers, temporary tattoos, little thank you/love notes, etc. But I think their favorites are these little computer tickets. (They like to save them up like money and spend them all at once.) It's so cute to watch them walk by the board and see their excitement as they catch a glimpse of something in their pocket. It's funny how something so simple can mean so much."  And here are Deena's step by step instructions ...

First, you'll need a frame.  Scour thrift stores for a long narrow picture frame. I found this one with photo mat included for 25 cents because the glass was missing. Perfect! We won’t use it anyway.


Prime the frame with a spray primer and top with a coat of gloss white spray paint.


Select double-sided patterned paper. Place the design you want to use face down on the table, measure in four inches, score and fold. Repeat twice more to create three pockets.


Line up the three papers so the folds slightly overlap.


Adhere ribbon to the edge of each paper.



Place your photo mat face down and run adhesive along all four sides.


Turn mat right side up, position over the patterned paper and press to adhere. Trim off excess paper from the top.


Insert the mat in the frame and add small sepia photos to the front of each pocket.


Sew buttons onto paper flowers with embroidery floss and adhere the trio to one corner of the frame. Stack multiple pop dots on each other to create fun dimension.


Take a long strip ribbon and tie a bow directly in the center. Tie each end to the back of the frame and hang your new Rewards Board in a special place.


Print special coupons, tickets or notes of praise to tuck inside of each pocket.

Mix & Match Monday

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  Time to mix things up a bit on the Pebbles blog as some of our design team members show off their creative skills while mixing and matching products from several Pebbles collections.

Design team member Lisa Kisch created this fabulous double page layout using several different Pebbles collections.  Here's what Lisa had to say ... " love mixing product lines - in fact, I find it much easier than constraining myself to one collection! The key is to look at the colour combination in each collection, and how they relate to your photos. For this layout, I had lots of autumn colours which made me think of the Cats & Dogs and Tree House collections.  However, the blue of Audrey's jean jacket was quite prominent, and that allowed me to mix in some New Arrival Boy in the embellishments.  Sometimes it is easier to mix embellishments than it is to mix paper - and that's okay! This layout has only a few patterned papers, but lots of texture and charm from the stickers and embellies.  I'm also a meanie with the scissors.  I will cut embellishments apart at the drop of a hat! A felt "cat paw" sticker became the accent for the layered circle embellishment to the left of the title, and also the "rivets" for the grid washi tape. Don't be afraid to cut apart embellishments that don't work for you as is. I'm not a cat owner and wouldn't likely use that sticker otherwise. How great to add it to my layout in a different way, and not let it languish in my stash!"

Design team member Ria Mojica also did a fall themed layout using a mix of Pebbles goodies.  Here's what Ria had to say ... "Autumn is a season that's foreign to me - here where our seasons are aptly (and boringly) called wet and dry. That's why the whole idea of Autumn is such a marvelous thing to me. Plus the fact that it's turkey season - it's no wonder we're one of the few Filipino families who celebrate Thanksgiving in Manila! It's the best excuse to cook a turkey!  These are random photos that a New Yorker friend took while walking around Central Park one autumn day, and although I've been to Central Park in the winter and summer someday I'll be back there in autumn, too so I can see all these wondrous things in person!"

Sketchy Thursday

For today's edition of "Sketchy Thursday" I asked some of our design team members to create a project based on this fabulous sketch by Becky Fleck.


Design team member Suzanne Sergi shows the versatility of the Cats & Dogs collection in this fall themed layout.  Here's what Suzanne had to say ... "When I first saw the Cats & Dogs collection, I immediately thought of fall colors. The bold circles and the fun stripes were perfect  for documenting our annual trip to the Pumpkin Patch.  As you can probably tell, this paper is not limited to only pets. This page came together due to the wonderful sketch that was given to me. One of my favorites elements on the sketch were the large scallops across the top. As with all sketches, they are a fantastic starting point. It helped me decide on the basic design, and I let the large scallop play into the larger circles on the right hand side of the page. I adhered one of the smaller photos to a tag, and anchored it with the circles to create movement. It took me about two hours to complete this page. It only took my son, fifteen minutes to find the perfect pumpkin!"

How To Tuesday

For today's "How To Tuesday" post design team member Anna Sigga shows us how she altered a Camembert box using the New Arrival Girl collection.  Here are Anna's step by step instructions ...

First, paint the box a neutral color - I covered my box twice using a thick paint.




Next, cut the first paper into 12" x 1 3/8" (I inked all the edges to give a it a soft vintage feel), apply glue and stick. ;o) Then take one of the border stickers wrap around the lid.


To create the decorative center for the lid (it also covers the "blank" area) punch one medium scallop circle (ca. 1 6/8") and another smaller one (ca. 1 1/2") and add the cute 3-D bow sticker to the center.


Next cut a 3" circle to cover the top of the lid and glue down.


For the top decoration I used a large scalloped punch to punch out the brown/white paper, glittered chipboard piece, felt flower, Glittered Candy Dots, and several butterflies punched from the coordinating papers.



I used one of the New Arrival cards and mathcing envelopes to match the lil altered box. :D

"When I first saw the new Cats & Dogs collection, I thought it was super cute. But we don't have any pets here in our house, as my daughter is highly allergic to cats and dogs. I love the mix of colors, and there are so many patterns that are versitile enough to use for everyday layouts featuring family and friends. Then I got a close up look at the embellishments, and just knew that I wanted to use the chipboard accents and the felt accents, because they are so adorable! So I decided to make some cards, that will come in handy when friends or family members add a new puppy to their family."

More Projects with Deena, Melinda, and Zoe

Design team member Deena Wuest created this fun gift card holder.  Here's what Deena had to say ... "I love using leftover scraps to create cards for my family and friends. Here I used fun scraps from the Cats & Dogs collection to create this quick card for my daughter (who recently did well on a very hard test at school). By placing adhesive only along the sides and bottom of my title block, I created a pocket to hold a little gift card to her favorite drink stop. It's something so simple that meant so much to her."

As soon as she spied the Cats & Dogs collection I had no choice other than to agree it was time to 'make good' on my promise. I must say I really enjoyed putting together these two critters with lots of paper piecing using all the gorgeous prints and fun colours from the new range. The collars were made using Candy Dots and tags. Really simple to make and she absolutely loves them! They have now gone off to school so I'm just hoping I don't get any more requests!"

"I was so happy when I got this fabulous collection from Pebbles.  I knew that it would be perfect for some pictures that I took of our dog Bosco.  I wanted to create a fun, but sweet layout of our last day with him.  This layout came together rather quickly and it is all because these fun papers go together just right.  I couldn't' t have asked for this layout to be any better than I imagined it in my head, thanks to the "Cats & Dogs" collection!"

I knew I wanted to use this photo for my layout, but it wasn't until I printed it out that I realized that the green in it is exactly the same tone/hue of that fab green in the products! I was so excited! The colour palette of this collection is actually one of my favourite things about it ... it'd be perfect for all your autumn projects as well as any pages about your little furry friends."

Design team member Wendy Sue Anderson shows that this collection is not just for the four legged variety.  Check out the adorable card set Wendy Sue put together using some of the "non-pet" patterned papers.  Here's what Wendy Sue had to say ... "Even though I don’t have a pet, I still love the papers in the Cats & Dogs collection.  The colors are so fun and the subtle patterns on the back sides of many of the paper sheets are perfect for layout backgrounds or cards!  I made this set of cards to give to a friend and I love how they all coordinate.  A fun thing to note…when you cut off the label strip on your Pebbles papers, don’t throw it away – the back side has a fun design that you can use on your projects!  I used the border strips on the left edge of all of these cards!"

More Projects with Kristen, Samantha, and Savitri

Design team member Kristen Swain created this precious layout in memory of her sweet dog.  Here's what Kristen had to say ... "Our dog just recently passed away due to an illness and scrapping these photos was a wonderful way to remember the nicknames we called her. The Cats & Dogs papers were perfect to accent these outdoor photos, the colors go so well with the grass, and even the setting sun colors reflecting off of Casey's face.  This will be just one of the layouts I include in our memorial scrapbook of her for my family."

"It was hard for me to keep this paper away from my daughter, she thinks it is the most fabulous scrapbook paper ever (she likes the cats).  So this card is spoken for, I will save it for her upcoming birthday.  She will be thrilled since she has asked for it at least 5 times already."

Design team member Savitri Wilder created this fun layout about her family's dog.  Here's what Savitri had to say ... "What a fun colection! I LOVE the colors and the sticker alphabets. I wanted to keep the page simple, and just highlight the photo, but I still wanted to keep it fun because that's just how our dog is. Fun! So this layout is just perfect for our sweet Shady Girl who was adopted a day before she was to be put to sleep due to over population of the animal shelter. Glad she's with us being spoiled and enjoying a lovely life. She's a lucky dog but we're luckier to have her!"

Cats & Dogs

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  This week on the blog is all about our furry friends as we share projects created with our Cats & Dogs collection that debuted at the CHA Summer 2010 show.  But before we get started I first wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone who posted comments last week on our New Arrival Boy giveaway.  The lucky winner of the entire New Arrival Boy collection is ...


Congratulations Jeanne!  Please email your full name and mailing information to pebblesincdt(at)gmail(dot)com and put "New Arrival Boy" in the subject line.  And now for a few "Cats & Dogs" projects!



First up, I (Lynn Ghahary) created this layout about the newest addition to our family - our sweet Puggle puppy Buddy!  This is definitely my favorite collection of our new releases - I love the fun color combination and with 2 cats and 1 dog this collection is definitely one I will be using over and over again.  My favorite product has to be the Ransom ABC stickers - they are so much fun to use!  Feel free to click the image for a larger view.

Design team member Mimi Leinbach celebrates her sweet four legged friend in this fun layout.  Here's what Mimi had to say ... "The Cats & Dogs collection totally screams fun to me. I decided to depart from my typical "straight style" with this line and have some fun. Things are just a little off center, a little crooked, the stitching is a little wavy. These colors are perfect for pets too. The photos of my girl, Lucy, matched perfectly. The embellishments are so much fun and I found myself wanting to use them all."
