Whip It Up Wednesday

 



"I am ever so slowly getting over my fear of cards and put those skills to use for this week's Whip It Up Wednesday.  To make sure I completed these in 30 minutes I stuck to the same general design for both-strips of paper down the middle of the card.  A little stitching and a sentiment and they were done in no time and ready to be sent!" - Christa Paustenbaugh, Pebbles Design Team Member

"I am completely in love with the alphabet stickers in the Hip Hip Hooray collection.  They are so fantastic and can really stand on their own when it comes to designing cards and layouts.  For this set of cards I let the letter stickers take center stage in my designs.  I popped them up with some dimensional adhesive for a little extra oomph."  - Lynn Ghahary, Pebbles Design Team Member

How To Tuesday

 


"Today I want to share an easy wedding present that won't break the bank, but is classy and cute all rolled into one!  We are going to take a wooden tray and create a cute wall hanging!"  - Elizabeth Carney, Pebbles Design Team Member

First, you will need to spray paint the wooden tray to the desired color.


After the spray paint is dry, begin decorating. I adhered the Pebbles flowers and other flowers using a hot glue gun.


Cut papers to desired length. I cut the black piece that is my backing into a 5x8 piece. I also cut the other strips into 2.5x8 and 1.5x8 size. Adhere those onto wooden tray. Add ribbon using hot glue.


After your papers are adhered, add the upper flowers to wooden tray.



Once all embellishments are adhered, add the lettering (you can add whatever saying you'd like).

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've been seeing this twist on a chevron everywhere recently and wanted to try it out for myself! I pulled lots of bright, bold patterns from various Pebbles lines and they really compliment each other. I especially love that Hip Hip Hooray doesn't have to be used for just birthdays- like that cute 'Yippie!' sticker."  - Ashley Stephens, Pebbles Design Team Member

"I love mixing various Pebbles line, so I was excited to be working on this assignment. For this layout I used  5 different lines, I  love the soft effect they produced together.  When I mix pattern paper I look for patterns and colors that compliment each other and I often add a touch of yellow, which I find ties all the color together. Happy mixing!" - Mel Blackburn, Pebbles Design Team Member

More Flower Projects with Eva and Sarah


"Flowers are a fun and versatile embellishment to add to any page. For this assignment, I thought it would be interesting  to create a layout that included a lot of flowers without the flowers taking over. I enjoy the confetti trend and thought I could do something similar using flowers. I put my flower punch to work and used a tone-on-tone look."  - Sarah Webb, Pebbles Design Team Member

"I love fresh flowers but it's hard to find them during the winter so I decided to create a small bouquet of paper flowers. I used the Country Picnic collection because I love the shades of pink and green. To embellish the centers I used candy dots, super easy because they have adhesive on the back! The steams are made with straws covered with floral tape. Use a ribbon or a vase to hold them and bring the spring into your house!"  - Eva Pizarro, Pebbles Design Team Member

"My stylized flowers were inspired by the embellishments on a pair of shoes I own. I knew the fresh, springy colors of the Country Picnic & Hip Hip Hooray lines would lend themselves well to this interpretation of them. To make them I simply punched circles in a variety of sizes and patterns, scored them down the center and stacked them. I used them in sets of three to make a flower and finished them off with a wood button. The white background and red twine complement the bright, fresh color of the two lines."  - Valerie Mangan, Pebbles Design Team Member

"I love to use flowers on layouts!  (on anything really!)  I made this layout of my friend's adorable little girl mixing patterns from Fresh Goods, Hip Hip Hooray and With Love, along with one of my other favorite things ... buttons!  I also used some of the new crystal candy dots as centers for the flowers.  They are super cute.   I cut out the flowers using my die cut machine and then just layered them on.  You could easily use punches or hand cut flowers to achieve the same look!"  - Mandie Pierce, Pebbles Design Team Member

More Flower Themed Projects with Gretchen and Stephanie

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.

"I will admit that I have been hoarding 3 packs of the super cute chipboard flowers from the Fresh Goods collection. It took "Flower Week" to finally get me to use them! I used those chipboard flowers to embellish this layout. And then because I thought it needed just a few more flowers (I mean, can you really ever have too many??!) I cut a few small flowers out of the "All Mine" patterned paper from the With Love collection to add also."  - Gretchen McElveen, Pebbles Design Team Member

"I don't think I'm alone in thinking that sometimes (or quite often in my case) life gets completely in the way. I'll be so busy at work that it'll suddenly dawn on me that it's a friend's birthday the very next day or, worse still, that very same day! That's why I like to have a few crafty projects up my sleeve that are super simple and super quick, like this hairband. This literally took me five minutes to make..a definite lifesaver next time I forget a birthday! The felt flowers make it a perfect accessory for spring/summer but it could easily be made into a more wintry item by swapping the flowers for a different Pebbles layered embellishment."  - Stephanie Baxter, Pebbles Design Team Member

The theme this week on the Pebbles blog is flowers.  I've asked some of our design team members to create projects featuring flowers using their favorite Pebbles products.



"For this flowers assignment, I took inspiration from the Country Picnic collection choosing to focus especially on mixing and matching floral papers and embellishments.

Guest Designer: Piradee Talvanna and a GIVEAWAY!

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


Describe yourself in 3 words ... crazy, creative, multi-tasker.

My guilty pleasure is … buying way too much scrapbooking products; especially the items that I don’t really need but you never know right? There might be that one layout or project that it would be perfect for.

You’ll never find me without … my sketchbook.  Whenever I have the chance, I’m always jotting down ideas or sketching my next layout/project.

You might be surprised to know that I … need to do something scrapping related every night for at least 15mins, otherwise I just lay tossing around in bed.  Guess you could say, it’s my way of winding down after a long day at the office.

My least favorite chore is … that’s easy, it’s cleaning up my scrapbooking area after a long weekend of scrapping (at times, you can find me creating on the floor – there just enough room; although I think it’s because I have a small table). LOL

I started scrapbooking in… I’ve always been a crafty person, but it was in 2008, when I relocated to Singapore for work that I walked into my first scrapbook store.  Needless to say, ever since then I’ve been addicted to this hobby.
 
My favorite thing about this hobby is … the creation process itself.  I love playing with all the gorgeous papers and the amazing array of embellishments that are available.  Just the idea of mixing and matching and seeing how everything all comes together… always brightens my day/mood.

If I were a Pebbles product I would be … the clear alphabet stickers (absolutely love them and the fun effect when you overlap the letters).



"One of things that I really like about Pebble collections are the mix of kraft papers and products and the Country Picnic collection is no exception. Absolutely adore the sweet colors and how everything works perfectly with the kraft pattern papers (although couldn’t resist adding in a pop of yellow from the Hip Hip Hooray collection)."

"I had a ball of the time making this layout and took my inspiration from one of the embellishment in the Hip Hip Hooray collection – the dimensional stitched circles.  From there, I added on more layering and dimensional details to the embellishments before using those circle embellishments as the focal design of my layout."

For some added fun, I made sure that all the pages with different lengths to add some variation to the mini album and also show off the various pattern papers used."

Dear Pebbles


Good morning everyone!  Today we are featuring cards created by some of our design team members using their favorite Pebbles products.


"I just love the Country Picnic collection.  It is so soft and feminine, and the kraft combined with the other colors just sing to me.  I created a card set using some of my favorite punched and dies to create a notched flower and butterfly.  Pebbles rub ons are so versatile and go on like butter - they were the perfect addition to each of my cards."  - Lynn Ghahary, Pebbles Design Team Member

"You can never have too many birthday cards right? The Hip Hip Hooray collection was perfect for this little trio of confetti cards. To do them simply punch different patterned papers, sew some acetate and put the confetti inside before sewing it completely. Embellish and the cards are ready!

How To Tuesday

 


"I have always loved playing with paper. I specifically enjoy making my own embellishments. I decided that today I would shared one of the versions of flowers I know how to make."  - Sarah Webb, Pebbles Design Team Member

To start, cut a strip of paper 6"x1" and fold it in half.


Next, cut into the paper on the diagonal, leaving the bottom 1/8" intact.


Wind the strip around something narrow such as a paper piercer.  You may find you want to add glue dots along the way to prevent the flower from unwinding.


Adhere the end onto the base of the flower with a glue dot and spread the petals.


And finally add the flower to your project.

"For the Mother’s Day assignment I wanted to create very soft and feminine cards. The Country Picnic collection was perfect for this task, also I added an extra touch of softness by adding a white doily to each card. I think these cards would not only be perfect for Mother’s Day but also any occasion where you need to give a little something to that special lady in your life. Happy Mother’s Day!"  - Mel Blackburn, Pebbles Design Team Member

More Mother's Day Projects with Kim and Wendy Sue



“Since we are planning to treat my Mom to Mother’s Day Brunch this weekend, I wanted a cute gift bag to bring to the restaurant (my recycled Christmas bags just won’t cut it this time). I dressed up a plain yellow bag with strips of paper and a border sticker. The matching tag was also quick and easy to create with letter and dimensional stickers. Don’t worry; you still have time to “fancy up” a gift bag for the special Mom in your life!”  - Kim Kesti, Pebbles Design Team Member

More Mother's Day Projects with Elizabeth and Suzanne



"Making Mother's Days cards is bittersweet since my mom passed away 3 years ago. However, there are some wonderful women in my church who fill the "mom" roll for me and I wanted to create these cards with that in mind! They are special women that are in my life who I truly cherish and working with the Country Picnic was a perfect way to show that!"  - Elizabeth Carney, Pebbles Design Team Member

"I created this bright ensemble for my Mother for Mother's Day. I thought this would be perfect for her from the grandchildren. She is such a fabulous Mom, and deserves something happy to brighten her special day.  I loved the Happy Day paper, and used it on the card and gift box. To add a bit more celebratory feel, I added some fun garland to both! Wish we could be there to see her open the box. Think it will have a gift certificate to her favorite restaurant, and some chocolate, too!"  - Suzanne Sergi, Pebbles Design Team Member

More Mother's Day Projects from Christa and Laura


"I recently had this photo taken of my girls and I and I just adore it! I try to make a point to get out from behind the camera often to get in those family and candid photos.  I cut the heart image from my Silhouette and backed it with various papers to highlight it.  I took the cut hearts and used some of them as a banner/garland in the corner of the photo."  - Christa Paustenbaugh, Pebbles Design Team Member

Theme: Mother's Day

This week on the Pebbles blog we will be celebrating Mother's Day with lots of inspirational projects created by some of our Pebbles design team members.


"For this week's page, I started with a doily and used it as a mask with some spray mist. I used the doily to help ground the photo, and then used a portion of a dimensional gift tag (sans tag) to add some balance. The clothespins I used were just a little lighter than the corrugated alphas so I misted those as well and now they work perfect! I love how the colors in Country Picnic really pop against gray!"  - Ashley Stephens, Pebbles Design Team Member

"In my three years as a mother, I have definitely learned that motherhood is not all roses and sunshine.  It's tough work! I came across these photos of me and my daughters last year on their 2nd birthday and had to laugh. They certainly sum up what life is like most days. I decided to go with a feminine color scheme by pulling out my favorite shades of pink, kraft and white. I wanted the title to stand out so I used a variety of alphabet stickers to help tell the story. The rest of the design is fairly simple - a little color blocking, doilies and floral accents. This assignment was perfect to capture my real, true, authentic life!"  - Jill Cornell, Pebbles Design Team Member

"My favourite Pebbles collection to scrap my teenage girl has got to be Hip Hip Hooray.   I had fun mixing it up with some Country Picnic and With Love for this layout.  I love the cheerful, fun and bright colors and patterns together which help to capture my girl's personality.  I also tried using the twist tie embellishments in a different way here - ruffling it up to add some dimension."  - Pearl Liu, Pebbles Design Team Member

Whip It Up







"I love seeing loads of digital journaling cards that seem to be cropping up all over the place to use on scrapbook pages and for Project Life. I wanted to create some of my own but since I know absolutely nothing about how I would go about doing them digitally, I decided to make some using some blank journaling cards and some of my favourite Pebbles goodies. The bright and cheerful colours of Hip Hip Hooray and Country Picnic were perfect for creating something fun to brighten up my Project Life spreads and the best part of it is that it took me less than 30 minutes to make all four journaling cards! I can't wait to use these in my Project Life album!"  - Stephanie Baxter, Pebbles Design Team Member

It's starting to warm up here in the northern hemisphere, and our newest collection is sure helping us getting ready for summer. Introducing Sunnyside!

Sunnyside is full of delightful colors and whimsical designs that we're sure you'll love. Take a look: 











(The 6x6 Paper Pad comes with 36 sheets of 18 designs in a reduced size. It's a perfect product for card making!)

What do you think? Let us know by Sunday night and on Monday (May 7) we'll announce our randomly selected winner of the entire Sunnyside collection!

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.

  
"April showers bring May flowers, right?!! Well I want to show you how to make an easy, but super fun flower using the twist ties that Pebbles makes! You can find twist ties in the With Love and Hip Hip Hooray collections. The Hip Hip Hooray twist ties were used to make this flower."  - Gretchen McElveen, Pebbles Design Team Member


To start, fold the twist ties in half.


The twist ties have a pattern on one side and are solid on the other side. This will provide a nice variety of colors and contrast for your flower.


Go ahead! Don’t be afraid! Just use the whole package and fold all of the twist ties in half! And please don’t worry about making sure they are all folded perfectly in half. If they are uneven, your flower will be more interesting!



Now punch a 1 ½” circle out of white cardstock. You don’t have to use 1 ½” punch if you don’t have it. You can use a bigger or smaller size - 1 ½” is just what is used in this example. This is just going to be a base to attach the twist ties to so it will be covered up ultimately.


Using adhesive dots (or your favorite strong adhesive), adhere the folded twist ties around the punched circle. Don’t worry about lining up the twist ties exactly or making sure they are even. That is too much trouble! Just have fun with it and let it look a little messy!


Your flower will look something like this when you have all the twist ties adhered to the circle:


The last thing to do is to add a center to the flower. Punch another circle out of white cardstock. This time punch it slightly smaller at 1 ¼”.  Once again, you don’t have to use this size punch. You could use the 1 ½” punch again and it would work fine! Or even go bigger! (You really just want to make sure that your punch is bigger than the stitched dimensional circle that you are going to add next). Then adhere the circle to the center of the flower so that it covers up the folded parts of the twist ties. Finally, add a stitched dimensional circle to the center of the punched circle.  And there you have it! Your flower is finished!



You could use this flower as a large embellishment on a scrapbook page. Or you could use it on the front of a “springy” mini-album. If I can get my hands on some more packs of the twist ties, I am going to make a few more flowers, attach them to straws, and put them in a brightly colored vase for a fun centerpiece on our kitchen table!  You could even use it to jazz up an otherwise boring gift bag like I did here.

Hip Hip Hooray Confetti (751233)
Hip Hip Hooray Twist Ties (747169)
Hip Hip Hooray Stitched Dimensional Circles (744290)
Country Picnic Corrugated Raspberry ABC Stickers (732094)
