Mix & Match Monday


It's Monday again, which means we'll be mixing and matching some Pebbles products to show you just how well our collections can be used with one another.

First up, design team member Laura Craigie created this simply adorable layout about the three little men in her life.  Here's what Laura had to say ... "When deciding on what products to use on this layout I started with the picture and decided I wanted to pull out the blues, and reds.  That made an easy choice to use the New Addition boy's line, and pair it with Fresh Goods.  I had a lot of fun cutting things out on my silhouette with Kraft cardstock to tie the whole thing together."






Pebbles supplies used:
New Addition Calendar (751151)
New Addition Ribbon - Boy (780006)

Design team member Wendy Sue Anderson used three different Pebbles collections on this love themed layout.  Here's what Wendy had to say ... "I went through a few different collections and pulled out a bunch of kraft, red, and pink product to use for this Valentine’s Day layout.  I found fun coordinating papers in the With Love, New Addition” and Fresh Goods lines.  I love being able to mix and match products between lines and it’s super easy to do with Pebbles products because the style is consistent and some of the design elements and patterns are even subtly repeated between the lines."

Design team member Kim Kesti professes her love for junking on this mix and match layout.  Here's what Kim had to say ... "Mixing several Pebbles collection is easy as pie, or should I say, easy as finding a great deal at the thrift store? I had a blast putting together this layout using several stickers, papers and tags from our With Love, Fresh Goods and even Welcome Christmas lines. And yes, I love junking!”

Guest Designer: Jen Gallacher and a GIVEAWAY!


Hi everyone! I am so excited to introduce you to this week's Guest Designer Jen Gallacher.  Let's get to know Jen a little better ...


Describe yourself in 3 words … snarky, messy, organized (Yes. You can be both.)

My guilty pleasure is … Peanut M&M's

You’ll never find me without … A notebook to jot down ideas or my "to do" list.

You might be surprised to know that I … I don't have ears pierced. I did at one time, but I didn't like it. I'm not a big fan of jewelry, especially when I'm paper crafting.

My least favorite chore is … Any chore that takes me away from my creative time.

I started scrapbooking in ... 1997 when my sister took me took my first class at a Pebbles scrapbook store.

My favorite thing about this hobby is ... I can convey my heart-felt feelings to those I love and they will always have a record of those feelings.

If I were a Pebbles product I would be … A clothespin: cute and tiny (or I inspire to be both of those things.)

Jen created so many amazing projects for us today including this love themed layout about her daughter.  Here's what Jen had to say ... " I wanted to focus on someone I love so I chose to create this layout about my 15 year old daughter, Katelyn. Like the card and envelope project, I filled the envelope with patterned paper and then added hearts "exploding" out of the envelope. Little details like ribbons with notched or diagonally cut ends make this layout completely feminine."



Pebbles supplies used:
With Love True Love (751202)
With Love I Heart You (751203)
With Love ABC Stickers (732081)
With Love ABC 2 Stickers (732082)

With Love Dimensional Hearts (747157)
With Love Scalloped Envelopes (747158)
With Love Gift Tags (747160)
With Love Mini Clothespins (744280)
With Love Heart Paper Clips (744281)
With Love Candy Dots - Hearts (744279)
With Love Acrylic Stamps (747162)
With Love Ribbon (780014)


Other supplies used:
Cardstock (American Crafts)


Jen also created a project to go along with our "double" theme this week.  Here's what Jen had to say ... "Fresh Goods always inspires me to pull out my summer photos. It makes me think of picnics, family reunions, flower gardens, and family. For this layout, I cut several of the patterned paper end strips into long banner strips and layered them on both sides of my photo. For something different I layered my title vertically rather than horizontally."




Pebbles supplies used:
Fresh Goods Signage (751186)
Fresh Goods Local Market (751190)

Other supplies used:
Cardstock (American Crafts)
String

Here's what Jen had to say about her final project ... "I'm a sucker for cute envelope shapes and the envelopes in this collection completely inspired this project. I added a patterned paper insert inside the envelope, then decorated the outside with a twist tie and a chipboard sticker. I then created a small square card that would easily fit inside the card. I love all the extra embellishments in this collection which make creating fun and easy."

With Love Kiss Me (751211)

More Double Page Layouts with Jill, Gretchen, and Valerie

Design team member Jill Cornell created a double page layout with lots of photos to tell the story of her twin daughters' Christmas experiences this year.  Here's what Jill had to say ... " I love creating double page layouts when I have a lot of photos to tell a particular story. Christmas is the perfect occasion to share a lot of photos, and I used the Welcome Christmas collection to showcase photos of one of our Christmas gatherings this year. I created a collage of wallet size photos (10 of them) and then chose one photo that I wanted to highlight and made that the focal point of the layout. When I create two-page layouts, I enjoy creating a large design element that supports the focal point photo. Here I created a Christmas tree using punched circles from patterned paper and rhinestones. A portion of a border sticker anchors the tree. I also carried the title across the page with the use of a border sticker."




Pebbles supplies used:
Welcome Christmas Merry Christmas (751175)
Welcome Christmas Christmas Gift (751173)

Other supplies used:

Stickers (The Girls' Paperie)
Spray Mist (Studio Calico)

Design team member Gretchen McElveen uses a double page spread to document the joy of meeting a new sibling.  Here's what Gretchen had to say ... "Sometimes when it comes to double-page layouts, simplicity is best! If I am making a 2-pager, it probably means I have lots of pictures to use and lots of journaling that I want to do. That doesn't always leave a lot of room for embellishing. On this layout (of one of my best friends and her kiddos), I didn't have too much journaling but I did have several pictures to use and I really wanted to do that long title. The New Addition boy and girl lines were perfect for the look I wanted to create with this layout. To make sure my pictures stood out, I matted them on white cardstock and added photo corners to some of them. Then I kept the embellishments to a minimum so my layout didn't look too busy! Voila! A simple 2-pager!"


Pebbles supplies used:
New Addition Boy Little Toes (751156)
New Addition Boy Little Brother (751162)
New Addition Boy Dimensional Phrase Stickers (732065)
New Addition Girl Little Hands (751144)
New Addition Girl Little Sister (751150)
New Addition Girl Dimensional Phrase Stickers (732059)

Other supplies used:

Thickers (American Crafts)
Brads (Little Yellow Bicycle)
String


Design team member Valerie Mangan's double page layout makes me ache for summer's warmer weather and time spent down at the Jersey shore.  Here's what Valerie had to say ... "Two page layouts are a great way to showcase many photos from a single event. This page features 10 photos plus a few extras in the little pocket behind the ‘nj’. I used a summer mix of patterns from several lines to create my page border which frames the white space. (I tried to pull my colors from the beach chair in the photos). The random border strips cross over the page breaks to unite the 2 separate pages.  My journaling is on a border strip under the photos that also spans the page break."

Theme: Make Mine A Double

First things first, I have a winner to announce from last week's "Product Parade" giveaway. Thank you all so much for your comments. And the lucky winner is ...


Congratulations! Please email your full name and mailing information (including your phone number for shipping purposes) to pebblesincdt(at)gmail(dot)com and put "Product Parade Winner" in the subject line.

Design team member Suzanne Sergi created this love-ly two page layout featuring our With Love collection.  Here's what Suzanne had to say ... "I am not normally a two page scrapbooker. It seems I never have enough great photos to complete two pages. Usually, for me one photo is enough to tell my story. However, love these sweet photos of my little girl, so I am happy to have them together in an album. I was so ready for the New Year, that I pulled out the With Love Collection from Pebbles. This is perhaps one of my favorite Valentine's collections because it is on kraft paper. Perfect for your Valentine memories, and Valentine paper crafts."

Design team member Mel Blackburn created this stunning two page layout using a large ampersand to ground her photos, title, and journaling.  Here's what Mel had to say ... "It had been a while since I created a double pager, this time around I decided to try out a smaller version of the traditional double layout, and the size of my layout is 11x17, which I much preferred! I love the textured background to which I added random punched out circles. Some of these circles feature tiny hearts, which are the punched out hearts from the With Love tag, this is great way to use supplies. The tags are adorable, I couldn’t leave the hearts unused. Even though this layout is about Love, I used non-traditional love colors which better suited the pictures. I hope this inspires you to create a double page layout."

More Double Page Layouts with Aphra and Christa!

Design team member Aphra Bolyer created a double page layout to celebrate 2011.  Here's what Aphra had to say ... "This layout was inspired by the larger picture of my two boys, which was taken on New Year's Day of 2011.  I wanted to get it scrapped before the year ended.  Then, I thought why not use it for a Year In Review layout.  I picked a favorite picture from each month of the year, turned them black and white and printed them out.  I had intended to block the photos, but when they came out of the printer they looked like negative strips.  I went with the idea and love the happy accident!"

Design team member Christa Paustenbaugh created this two page layout about the bond between her daughters and their cousin.  Here's what Christa had to say ... "When I normally do a 2 page layout I put the pages flush together and make it one big continuous layout.  This time I decided to divide it up a bit, almost like 2 separate layouts.  I'm in love with those masking tape stickers and they were perfect for this layout about my daughters and their bond with their cousin from Germany.  I then used the Silhouette to cut a journaling shape and just made it a bit bigger for a mat behind it.  Very simple!"

Theme: Make Mine A Double

Happy Monday everyone!  This week on the Pebbles blog will have you seeing double - double page layouts that is!  I've challenged some of our design team members to create a double page layout using their favorite Pebbles supplies.

Design team member Wendy Sue Anderson created this boyishly sweet double page layout about her son's love for popsicles!  Here's what Wendy had to say ... "My youngest son is a HUGE popsicle fan and he will eat ask for them even if it’s snowing outside.  He especially loves otter pops…and if he can eat two flavors at the same time, he is in popsicle heaven!  I’ve had these photos for a while, just waiting for the right paper combo to use to scrap them … as I was organizing some of my Pebbles products, I realized the blue and green in the “Ever After” line would work perfectly.  It doesn’t matter that the line is primarily meant for girls – as there is a lot of pink/princess-y in the line as well … I simply left out the pink, combined some browns from other lines and put together a perfectly acceptable boyish combination!"

Design team member Jill Cornell has already moved on to the next holiday on the calendar with these adorable gift bags.   Here's what Jill had to say ... "Now that Christmas is over, I'm already switching gears to Valentine's Day.

"I am not normally a 2 page scrapbooker.  But, with 24 photos, I had didn't have room on one page.  With that many photos, I wanted to keep the layout simple.  I was afraid adding too many embellishments would be distracting.  This layout is about all of the places our Elf on the Shelf "hid" this year.  It will be interesting to see how many spots are repeated next year!"

Design team member Aphra Bolyer created this precious card set.  Here's what Aphra had to say ... "I love the soft pinks, browns, and creams in the New Addition 2011 collection, which I think are perfect colors for creating cards for any occasion.  I sifted through all the sweet embellishments to find ones that were not baby specific.  And I found plenty.  My favorite accent are the pink spiral paper clips.  They're just so cute and fit perfectly inside the flower stickers on my "Love You" card."

Design team member Stephanie Baxter also created a set of cards perfect for reconnecting with old friends.  Here's what Stephanie had to say ... "Every New Year I’m always reminded of friends of mine with whom I might have lost touch with a bit over the past year and always try to make an effort to regain a bit of contact to check in with them and see how they’re doing. This year I thought it might be a nice idea to make some everyday cards specifically for the purpose, which I can send to friends to get in touch. I mixed various favourite products of mine from the With Love, Fresh Goods and New Arrival Girl lines to create these fun, feminine cards. I love including a bit of dimension on all my projects, so I made sure to use foam tabs to adhere one element to each card and make it pop.”

Product Parade: Adhesive Notes and a GIVEAWAY!


Hey everyone!  Today we are focusing on one of our newest additions to the Pebbles line of products ... Adhesive Notes!  Pebbles Adhesive Notes are the perfect embellishment for all of your paper crafting projects.  They are great for adding notes and journaling just where you need it and add the perfect pop of color and whimsy.  Pebbles Adhesive Notes are available in two styles and coordinate with Fresh Goods and With Love collections.



Design team member Gretchen McElveen used our adhesive notes to list all of the reasons why she loves her husband - so sweet!  Here's what Gretchen had to say ... "The adhesive notes are such a fun and unique embellishment! I thought it would be fun to use a bunch of them to create a list of things I love about my husband in celebration of our 9 year anniversary! Cheesy?? Yes! But I like how the layout turned out! :)"

I love using those sticky notes to dress up a layout in quick and easy way. Here I punched one adhesive (light blue one) note with my punch to give a bit more "decorative" feel."

How To Tuesday


First things first, I have a winner to announce from last week's "Guest Designer" giveaway. Thank you all so much for your comments. And the lucky winner is ...


Congratulations! Please email your full name and mailing information (including your phone number for shipping purposes) to pebblesincdt(at)gmail(dot)com and put "Guest Designer Winner" in the subject line.

Today design team member Eva Pizarro shows us how to take those adorable Pebbles brads and create some "off the page" projects.  Here's what Eva had to say ... "I love the different type of brads from all of the different collections. And there are so many fun things you can do with them! Today I wanted to show you how to create a simple pair of earings and some hair pins using some glue and your favorite Pebbles brads."

To create the earrings just select your favorite brad (I used one from The Mr. & Mrs. collection) and remove the back with some tweezers.


Clean the back and use a string glue to attach a flat earring piece.


You can use the same technique to create some bobby pins!  WIth a wire cutter cut off the back of the brad.


And attach it to a bobby pin using a strong clear glue.


Super easy!  Now you just have to create a card and send them to someone special!

Mix & Match Monday

Happy Monday everyone!  And Happy New Year!  We hope you all had a fantastic New Year's weekend!  Today on the Pebbles blog we'll be mixing and matching some Pebbles products to show you just how well our collections can be used with one another.

Design team member Valerie Mangan mixed several different collections together to come up with this fabulous set of cards.  Here's what Valerie had to say ... "One of the great things about Pebbles is how easily the lines can be mixed together.  I mix them on nearly every project I do! For this card set I hit my stash of Fresh Goods, With Love & Floral Lane scraps and mixed the little bits and pieces with some New Addition. The serene blue was a great backdrop for the fun mix of color and pattern that resulted."

Design team member Melinda Spinks demonstrates her mixology skills with this super cute layout.  Here's what Melinda had to say ... ""I always love the Mix & Match assignments because it gives me the opportunity to go rummaging through all the ranges and grab bits and pieces from each one. I decided to go for neutral tones to compliment the whacky photo of my son after his chocolate ice-cream indulgence, and I was amazed at just how many of the Pebbles collections I was able to raid for this layout ... there's a little bit of everything!"

Design team member Pearl Liu created this gorgeous altered notebook for her daughter to keep with her on her days away from home using several different Pebbles collections.  Here's what Pearl had to say ... "My 16 year old girl is will be staying in her high school hostel this year as part of a year long residential program . So she will be gone 5 days a week and home only on weekends.  For sure kids grow up too fast.  I altered this notebook for her , knowing that she will be appreciative of having something on hand to remind her of home, something she can use to pen her thoughts.I have picked out colors, patterns and elements from our various lines that I know she will love especially and that's what makes this project so fun yet meaningful at the same time."
