More Family Ties Projects with Lynn and Renee


"I took this photo of my nephew Eli this past summer.  He has the most AMAZING blue eyes and curly blonde hair.  I immediately knew I wanted to use the Family Ties collection to scrap this photo as the blues and browns in the collection were a perfect match for the colors in my photo.  I am such a fan of this collection and can't wait to use it again and again ... and again!"  - Lynn Ghahary, Pebbles Design Team Member

"What better way to celebrate this wonderful, new Family Ties collection than with projects for a family members birthday!? Today is my Mom's Birthday! I made a fun layout using the Family Ties collection with photos taken on Mother's Day. My girls and their little cousin are running to Grandma for a big hug. I feel bad that they almost tackled her to the ground. Ha! We had such a fun day together. I, also, made two birthday cards ... one to give to my Mom from my hubby and I and the other from my girls. I used lots of flowers and green throughout these projects, because my Mom has an amazing "green thumb" and her favorite color is this pretty leaf green. Happy Birthday, Mama!" - Renee Zwirek, Pebbles Design Team Member

"This new line is adorable!  I love the shades of blue (blue is my favorite color!) and yellow.  It's such a great color combination.  I'm also excited to see the journaling card & phrase card pads again.  These are one of my favorite new products from Pebbles.  We snapped this family photo at the beach in Carmel by the Sea.  We went to a friend's wedding celebration there a couple of weeks ago.  This beach is directly behind one of the cabins they rented.  (Can I move there?  PLEASE?!) The blues in the line just seemed to be a perfect choice for this photo."  - Mandie Pierce, Pebbles Design Team Member

“It has been a few days since my son got his new glasses.  I like the style they give to him.  He looks like an actor.  They are very fashionable and suit him perfectly. So, I had a photo shoot with him. As a scrapper’s son, he took his role very seriously!  To create this layout, I used the Family Ties collection. I love the colors of these papers! There are perfect for scrapping my little boys!
I hope you will like it!”  - Amelie Mordret, Pebbles Design Team Member

"I have a new favorite product, the Pebbles Phrase and Journaling cards! They make the coolest accents so I picked a few from the Family Ties collection that I thought would be perfect for a set of all occasion cards. You never know when you’ll need a card at the last minute which happens to me all the time. Or, these would make a nice gift, don’t you think?"  - Kathy Martin, Pebbles Design Team Member

"I am so in love with the blues, yellows, and greens in this line.  It can be used for both my daughter and my son. I chose a picture of my daughter this time and the Family Ties line worked perfectly.  The corrugated Thickers are a fun touch and not too dimensional if that is not your cup of tea.  I also like that the patterns in this line are not too overpowering. It makes the photo the star."  - Shawna Webster, Pebbles Design Team Member

I decided to use this photo of my best friend and I together as it suited the papers perfectly. It was easy to layer the cardboard stickers and the Pebbles chips over the Journaling prompt cards for an effective eye catching design."  - Kim Jeffress, Pebbles Design Team Member

More Grateful Projects with Kim and Tiffany


"One of the best ways to let someone know you're grateful for them is to give them a handmade thank you card.  The Walnut Grove collection is full of stickers and embellishments with "Thank You" as the theme, and the papers and designs are so sweet, they make the perfect thank you cards."  - Tiffany Hood, Pebbles Design Team Member

“I am guessing that just about everyone thinks of family when they count their blessings, we certainly do! When it comes to my husband’s family, counting just might take a little while; he has nine siblings and 80+ nieces and nephews. We were lucky enough to have almost the entire family together this past summer for a reunion – I knew this was the exact photo I wanted to scrap for our Grateful theme here on the blog. We are lucky to have such a large and loving family.”  - Kim Kesti, Pebbles Design Team Member

"Well, here it is, Thanksgiving day already!  Halloween is a distant memory, but that doesn’t mean you should put the Tricks and Treats Halloween collection in storage until next year!  Pull it out and create a couple of cards to tell someone how grateful you are for them.  The oranges, yellows, and greens don’t all scream “Halloween” and they work perfectly for autumn – especially with these sweet owl tags!"  - Wendy Sue Anderson, Pebbles Design Team Member

"I have to admit that I had a little bit of trouble with this week's theme.  The truth is, there are so many things to be thankful for, how do I choose just one?  So I decided to go a little outside the box with my layout.  My son, Nathan, turned four in September, and lately he has been showing us so much more of his personality.  Which we didn't really think was possible!  Lately he has been saying the funniest things, is showing he understands more, and is basically growing up.  He is a very sweet and loving boy and he makes us laugh everyday with his silliness.  I made this page, with his funny faces, to celebrate him.  We are so thankful to have him in our lives."  - Donna Jannuzzi, Pebbles Design Team Member

"For this week's theme I knew I wanted to make a list with the many blessings I have received. Initially I thought I would cut some patterned paper frames with my Cameo but then I saw these beautiful speech bubbles and I knew they would be perfect for my layout. To incorporate some color I attached them to different patterned papers and cut them leaving a small border. I added a pocket with my journaling and some stitching."  - Eva Pizarro, Pebbles Design Team Member

"Thanksgiving is always a hectic time for us, filled with travel and cooking and lots of family activities. I rarely manage to capture the holiday on film or in writing. This year, I am determined to do better! I created this "Many Thanks" album to help me document the holiday. Along the lines of the popular December Daily album tradition, I've created pre-made pages that are holiday-themed, many of which are designed to hold journaling. The pages feature a mix of products, including shapes die cut from patterned paper. My plan is to collect thoughts and pictures as I go during the holiday and use them to complete this album, interspersing my pre-made pages and 4" X 6" photos in the 25-page O'flip Flip Book Album. Should be a quick and easy project now that I've done most of the work ahead of time!"  - Vivian Masket, Pebbles Design Team Member

"It is natural that we are all reflective of our blessings and gratitudes at this point in the year, with the approaching holidays.  While I'd like to say that I count my blessings on a daily basis, I must admit that the daily grind often takes precedence over those gratitudes.  Therefore, the opportunity to focus on the theme "I'm Grateful For..." this week, was just the push I needed to put together this treasured page.  It allowed me to record and tell my three children the specific things I'm grateful for about each of them, at this very moment in their lives.  The Walnut Grove collection with it's masculine and feminine touches, was the perfect compliment to these memories and photos."  - Jaclyn Rench, Pebbles Design Team Member

Theme: I'm Grateful for ...

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 grateful 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.  :)


“For this week's theme, I choose to scrap a picture of part of my family, my children and I.
I am very proud to have such beautiful boys especially as the road to becoming a mom, was very difficult.  Today, only our happiness matters and I will always be there for them.  I love them so much! We are a lovely family!"  - Amelie Mordret, Pebbles Design Team Member

"I realize it sounds slightly cliche to say that the number one thing I am thankful for is my family, but really ... they are amazing. Every day I look at my husband and my children, and I can't believe how incredibly blessed I am.  We've been trying to take more family photos lately.  These were taken one day last month when we were helping my in-laws clean up the leaves in their lawn. My kids had a blast playing in the giant pile  I love all the fall colors in the photos, and I used papers from the Tricks and Treats and Seen & Noted lines to create a layout with a matching fall theme."  - Emily Spahn, Pebbles Design Team Member

Guest Designer: Amy Coose and a GIVEAWAY!


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


Describe yourself in three words ... caring, obsessive, loyal.

My guilty pleasure is ... the Real Housewives series.

You’ll never find me without … coffee - I drink it all day long!

You might be surprised to know that I
… love to listen to rap music.

My least favorite chore is … grocery shopping, I beg my hubby to go for me every week.

I started scrapbooking in ... 2000.

My favorite thing about this hobby is ... I love that I am recording precious memories for my family, and all the incredible people that I've met that love this hobby as much as I do.

If I were a Pebbles product I would be ... a piece of patterned paper, because I think they are truly the best patterns out there, and are so chic and trendy!

"Again, I headed to the cards to see if I could find one that went with these pictures of me and my baby.  I mixed papers from the Seen and Noted and Walnut Grove lines (Pebbles makes it so easy to mix their lines) on this layout.  I really love the amazing embellishments that Pebbles creates with each of their lines.  On this layout I used two of my favorites, the large tag and the 3D banner."

"I had been holding onto these pictures I had taken of Davis each month, and when I got my box of goodies from Pebbles, I knew the O' FL!P book would be perfect for it.  It was so simple, I just added the pictures and a page for some journaling.  Of course, I had to use some of the journaling cards to make the design super easy. :)"

Sketchy Thursday


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



"I usually do 8.5 x 11 layouts and was having trouble with the sketch for some reason. I decided to just turn my layout on its side and do an 11 x 8.5 instead. I have an album started with this orientation already so i thought, Why not?  It worked out much better this way for me.  I really enjoy scrapping this size but I tend to forget the option. I will be using it more in the future and filling up my empty scrapbook."  - Shawna Webster, Pebbles Design Team Member

"This sketch was a fun one to create with.  I used the Walnut Grove collection and these cute pictures of my daughter when she was little to make a layout about how brave she was going down the slide for the first time.  The Walnut Grove collection is so bright and happy, and it went along great with my photos."  - Tiffany Hood, Pebbles Design Team Member

Whip It Up Wednesday




"I love giving myself a time limit and just creating.  It makes me go with my gut instead of second guessing everything.  Which is usually a good thing:)  I really love the colored border on the bottom of my Pebbles papers, and incorporating it into the layout added another pop or color without any extra work.  Also, the new Phrase and Journaling cards made this quick page come together in a snap."  - Laura Craigie, Pebbles Design Team Member

"When I am caught for time, one of my favorite ways to get a layout completed very quickly is to grab a neutral paper and my scraps of Pebbles papers. I cut some varying sizes and shapes of paper from a few different lines and pieced them together on the page. The stickers in the Seen & Noted and Walnut Grove lines make it easy to add some pattern and dimension. I cut a title out with some Walnut Grove paper and voila all done in a short period of time. So, think twice before throwing away those little scraps of paper!"  - Nicole Nowosad, Pebbles Design Team Member

How To Tuesday



"Many people have probably seen these paper flowers before and even made some, but for those who have not I wanted to give you a quick how to for your next project.  I adore these flowers and the best part is that they are super easy to make."  - Christa Paustenbaugh, Pebbles Design Team Member

First, you will need a circle punch, or in my case 2 sizes of circle punches to start.  I chose a 1.5" and 1" for my project.  Next I punched 8 circles for just one flower using the beautiful Country Picnic line.


First, fold the circle in half, then while still folded you will fold it in half again so it looks like this:


Open the circle back up and start at one of the corners and make a slight fold from one crease to the next.  You will make this fold twice so that it looks like this:


Turn the circle over and fold over the straight edge of the previous fold so that it lines up with the crease in the center of the circle.  Do this on both sides so that they are touching in the middle and it looks like this:


After you have your 8 circles folded (I alternated 4 folded on one patterned side and 4 showing the other side), punch a circle to adhere them to create a larger flower.


This was a bit tricky in making sure the sides were lined up together although still leaving enough room for all 8 small flowers.  When it's done it should look like this:


I made 4 of these using various patterned papers and really like how it all came together!  I simply embellished the centers with buttons, punched paper and flowers to finish them off. 


After taking some time to fold the flowers the layout came together in record time!  I added the title, some journaling and a couple of simple additional embellishments and it was done!

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.


"I love these photos of all the cousins being super silly at our family photo shoot last summer.  Mixing and matching products from the Seen & Noted and Walnut Grove collections worked perfectly for the colors in the photos – which were mostly blues…and the added pops of color were just for fun!  Scrapping these silly photos was just as important to me as scrapping the super cute smiling poses.  Just like the journaling card says, “this is what memories are made of,” although I can’t imagine where they got their silly genes from."  - Wendy Sue Anderson, Pebbles Design Team Member

"For today's Mix & Match Monday, I decided to create a few cards using the 6x6 paper pads from Seen and Noted together with Walnut Grove.  Initially, you might not think that these two collection would work well together, but they actually share several of the same colors, which made them easy to coordinate.  Also, since the patterns in Seen & Noted are fairly basic (polka dots, stripes, etc.) it is a collection that goes perfectly with any theme.  I started off by making two fall inspired cards, hence the leaves.  Then, I couldn't help myself and had to make one with a butterfly too!  I thought it made the perfect cheerful accompaniment to the "enjoy your day" sentiment sticker."  - Donna Januzzi, Pebbles Design Team Member

Pinspiration Week: Final Day


We hope you've enjoyed our week of Pinspiration from the Pebbles Design Team. Today is the final batch of projects, featuring the work of Kathy Martin and Emily Spahn. Take a look!

"I'm a huge fan of Pinterest and often drink my morning coffee while perusing pins; it's my morning dose of caffeine and inspiration all in one! Needless to say I was pretty jazzed about this Pebbles assignment! I chose a pin from the talented Michelle Wooderson who dressed up some journaling cards. I knew the project would be perfect for the new Seen & Noted collection." Kathy Martin

Check out what Emily Spahn created:

"I love that the camera on my phone allows me to get so many “in-the-moment” photos of my daughter, who is quite a character. I printed off four of my recent favorites to use on this layout. I used a mix of Walnut Grove and Seen & Noted papers to make the layout bright and fun like her personality. I loved the sentiment “Be happy. Be bright. Be you.” that I found on Pinterest (courtesy of Sugar Paper). I used my Cameo to cut out the title." —Emily Spahn

Pinterest Inspiration Week: Day 4


Welcome to Day 4 of Pinspiration Week on the Pebbles blog! Today's projects are from none other than the talented Mandie Pierce and Vivian Masket


"Pinterest can be so overwhelming for me. There is so much on there, I get lost easily just looking around! I found this lovely feather print (I may need to order it for my scrap room!). I loved the different colored pieces of the feathers. I incorporated that into this layout of my daddy and me. I don't get to see him often, so it was a special treat to have him stay with us for a couple days. To make the feathers, I cut them out on my Cameo and filled in the backs with different pattern papers." —Mandie Pierce

Next on the docket is Vivian Masket.

"I loved the tall and thin, colorful patterned shapes against the white background in my inspiration piece. I chose to replicate this design on two cards, using silverware silhouettes and the Seen & Noted collection on one card and skyscraper silhouettes and the Walnut Grove collection on the other card. I chose to add a border around each card for contrast and to make the colors pop even more. I have a feeling I will be using this inspiration piece in other ways in the future — the clean design and colorful shapes that pop against a white background hold a lot of appeal!" —Vivian Masket

Pinspiration Week: Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of Pinspiration! Today Nicole Nowosad and Christa Paustenbaugh share inspiration from Pinterest and the resulting (brilliant!) projects. Take a look! 


"I was drawn immediately to a few different elements from the inspiration piece – the ring shape and the quilted look. I made a quick pie chart and stitched each pie shape.  With a few drinking glasses, I drew rings on the pie chart and cut each ring out. I added some foam adhesive to the back of them and placed on the page. I also drew inspiration from all the color in the piece and so I just used a lot of the paper from my Phrase and Journalling cards from the Seen & Noted line." —Nicole Nowosad

"I love this saying and pinned it right away quite a while ago.  I thought it would be perfect to cut out with my Silhouette and take center stage of my layout. I backed it with some bright papers from various Pebbles lines and embellished the areas that had some space. I wanted to journal, but wasn't sure where so I just made a pocket from one of the photos and stuck it in there as some hidden journaling."

Pinterest Inspiration Week with Pebbles!


Pinterest is an amazing source of inspiration, and that includes for the Pebbles designers! This week we'll be sharing projects inspired by images we've found on Pinterest. First up is Kim Jeffress and Kim Kesti with a layout and two cards you're sure to love. Enjoy!


"When I was creating my project for this challenge it was during the week leading up to Halloween and there were lots of spider images floating around Pinterest. I loved this one of the spider cupcakes and knew immediately what photos I wanted to scrap. A few years ago my youngest who was learning to crawl at the time, found a dead spider next to the fridge and decided to eat it!!! I quickly ran for my camera knowing I wanted to record this little snippet of his life.



"I have used a mix of the Tricks and Treats collection as well as elements from Sunnyside, Seen & Noted and Walnut Grove.

"My layout started with a sheet of  Hawthorne Ave (Tricks and Treats collection) pattern paper with the cobwebs however I didnt want to use the map part of the paper, so I mixed and matched different pattern papers with the colors in my photos and layed them over the map. I then cut out a couple of spiders using my cameo and added different elements to complete my page. Take note of the Seen & Noted journaling card — the description was just perfect for my layout!"

Next up is Kim Kesti with some quilt-inspired cards.


“I get a ton of online inspiration from the popular Pinterest website. It’s like a holding tank for paper crafting, recipes, quilting, home décor — all my favorite things. I drew inspiration for today’s cards from my Quilting board. So many fun quilt patterns can be easily adapted for cards – love that!”

Guest Designer: Penny Smith and a GIVEAWAY!


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


Describe yourself in 3 words … talkative, loving, eclectic!

My guilty pleasure is … Chai tea latte's (with soymilk) :)

You’ll never find me without … my thumb ring. I have been wearing the same one for about 20 years!

You might be surprised to know that I … used to train dolphins! And I have known my husband since I was 16 years old! (over 20 years now!)

My least favorite chore is … dishes! I literally told my husband I would marry him (when he asked) if he understood I didn't do dishes!

I started scrapbooking in
... the days of Mrs. Grossman stickers! Creative Memories got me started, but my best friend opening a scrapbooking store that had me diving into modern day design!

My favorite thing about this hobby is ... the people I have met! Being a designer, teacher and demonstrator has offered me relationships I would not have had otherwise, and I am very grateful!

If I were a Pebbles product I would be …uhm-this is mean! Cuz how do I pick!! But letters stickers are my number one favorite ... and since I described myself as talkative!!!


"I tend to not fill the page, and almost ALWAYS use the "design triangle" (because I love the flow of it) but with all the fabulous embellishment and papers, I was able to do both!! AND throw in some spray inks too! "Clustering" embellishments is more than easy with all the choices available in this line! "

Tricks and Treats Apricot Printed Thickers (732141)
Walnut Grove Mini ABC Stickers (732121)
Walnut Grove Corrugated Black Thickers (732134)


"I take pictures all the time of the everyday ... so when I was going thru my prints, I started to notice a theme. Inspiration for the layout came from a scrap of white paper, and noticing 3 star punches together. It was on! I love the subtle use of print! Walnut Grove florals are wonderfully bold!"

"Sometimes a print just wants to be showcased - or I just like it enough that it has to be! This dark background floral started this layout for me ... and as for journaling - I'll usually find a spot for it!!"


"This paper SCREAMED at me to be used! I usually don't know all the houses we visit (or have them all pictured at each) but I just LOVED the lil map on this paper! Thumbnails of several house visited would be so fun-but if you don't have that, make it work!! Showcasing the yearly picture I take at the beginning of the route worked too!"

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



"I loved the simple beauty of this sketch so much that I kept all of the elements the way they were presented. The Walnut Grove Collection went so well with this photo of Payton at the pumpkin farm. I loved using the Masking Tape Sticker for the title of my layout. The journaling...a reminder of how much I love my little girl just as she is. And, she is beautiful." - Renee Zwirek, Pebbles Design Team Member

I used the Seen & Noted collection to create a layout about my wedding anniversary, I love that you can used this line for your everyday photos and also for special occasions."  - Eva Pizarro, Pebbles Design Team Member
