Guest Designer: Dawn McVey and a GIVEAWAY!

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


Describe yourself in 3 words … happy, creative, content

My guilty pleasure is … hmmm ... The Bachelorette?  I have said for the last few seasons that I wasn’t watching any more (and didn’t) but totally got sucked in again this time around.  Ha.

You’ll never find me without
… my iPhone!  It’s always close by.  I don’t know what I did before I had an iPhone ... I use it for so much!

You might be surprised to know that I … sing at church and used to sing with a 16-piece big band doing old jazz standards like music by Ella Fitzgerald! 

My least favorite chore is … cleaning my sink.  I have no idea why.  Haha.

I started paper-crafting in ... maybe 2005.  I started out making cards and friends and family started asking to buy them and eventually I started submitting my work to magazines and everything just grew from there.

My favorite thing about this hobby is ... the wonderful girls all around the world that I’ve connected with whether online or in real life.  It still amazes me sometimes!

If I were a Pebbles product I would be … the Hip Hip Hooray Dimensional Flowers With Brads!  They’re just so colorful and fun! 




"I really wanted to use lots of different patterned papers on one card, and this type of layout lends itself to that idea beautifully!  By paying careful attention to the scale and colors of each paper, you can easily create a really eye-catching card, with lots of great colors and patterns all on the same card.  The flowers and sentiment were really just used as accents.  I think the patterned papers are the star of the show here!"

"For this card, I really just wanted to let those paper flowers shine and what better way to do that than to use several of them all together?!  They’re so cute and colorful and don’t need much else to create a really fun card ... I almost can’t decide if they look more like flowers or colorful fireworks!  A really neutral background was perfect for letting these flowers “pop”!"

"There are lots of fun elements on this card and again this time, I went with a really neutral background so that all of the colorful bits and bobs could take center stage and not get lost on a busy background.  The Glitter Flag Banners were really fun to cut apart and use, peeking out from behind the flowers.  Also, what’s better than a dimensional flower?  A dimensional flower stacked on top of a larger dimensional flower!"

"I adore the layered craft tags and couldn’t wait to use one on this card.  All of the layers here, really took shape around using that tag and topping the tag with that adorable little clothes pin was like the icing on the cake!  I should also mention how much I love the Back Porch patterned paper ... it works like a really great neutral since the ledger pattern is so subtle and yet it’s got such a great pop of color!"

Product Parade: Stamps




"I'm the first to admit I'm not the best stamper out there, but I do love adding it to my projects in small doses!  I used a few word stamps on my page, and for the banner with the repeating "Happy", I actually cut that stamp in half carefully so I just just use the happy, and not the "Birthday" too.  It didn't wreck either word and made it so much easier to just get the one word from the stamp." - Laura Craigie, Pebbles Design Team Member

"As soon as I learned I would be working with the fun & versatile Pebbles clear stamps, I knew exactly the technique I would use. I recently got to take a class where I was shown how to paint with spray/mist ink - which is very much like watercolor. The New Addition Boy and Girl stamps lent themselves perfectly to this technique.  For my kraft note cards I used the flower image from the New Addition Girl stamps. I painted with colors that are not baby-themed to show the versatility of these stamps. The flower image made a fun background. Sentiments from the new Sunnyside collection were a great addition.  I took a more baby-themed approach with the images from the New Addition Boy stamps, using the whale and star images for a new baby card and some gift enclosure envelopes. The 'welcome' and 'baby boy' sentiments (in my all-time favorite font) were from the same set."  - Valerie Mangan, Pebbles Design Team Member

Dear Pebbles


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



"For today's Dear Pebbles assignment, I created two cards around sentiments from the Sunnyside "From Me To You" paper.  By cutting out the sentiment square and matting it, I was able to create a quick and easy focal point. Then, I added a few banners (from the same sheet) and a dimensional embellishment and these two, cute cards are ready to be sent!"  Ashley Stephens, Pebbles Design Team Member

"I made this little card for my nephew's first birthday.   I mixed some Sunnyside, Hip Hip Hooray, and Fresh Goods to make the card.  I cut the cupcake with my Silhouette and layered it with some pattern paper and a doily. Stuck on a few of the Sequin Candy Dots.  I love that they just stick on.  Makes it so easy!  A quick and simple, yet cute card!"  - Mandie Pierce, Pebbles Design Team Member

How To Tuesday

 


"My current addiction is all about mini-albums - I just can not get enough of those lil pretties in all shapes and sizes. I really like these accordion minis because they are the perfect size for gifts and to use as decoration around the house."  - Anna Sigga, Pebbles Design Team Member

To create this mini-album you will need: 2 pieces of cardstock measuring 12" x 6", 10 pieces of patterned papers measuring 3 ¾ " x 5 ¾“, another 10 pieces of patterned papers measuring 3 ½“ x 5 ½” and embellishments.


Score the cardstock at 4” and again at 8” and fold in an accordion. Then adhere the two cardstock pieces together to create one accordion with five pages on each side.



Then adhere the large patterned paper (3 ¾” x 5 ¾”) to each page of the accordion and then adhere the smaller pieces (3 ½“ x 5 ½” ) on top of the ones you already adhered.


Decorate as you wish and add your fave photos.

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 haven’t made any little notecards in awhile and while I was looking through my Pebbles embellishments, the layered butterflies from the Sunnyside collection and the layered flowers from the Country Picnic collection caught my eye. The colours co-ordinate really nicely, so I thought they would look good on a pair of notecards together. I love being able to put together little cards for my friends in no time at all - the Pebbles collections make the process so much easier because they go so well together!”  - Stephanie Baxter, Pebbles Design Team Member

"I thought the Sunnyside papers would work well with some of the Fresh Goods embellishments picking out the similar shades of navy blue, red and pink . The colors and patterns of these two lines went perfectly together on these everyday cards to give away."  - Pearl Liu, Pebbles Design Team Member

More Summertime Projects with Valerie and Lynn


"What better way to make a page about summer fun than with the Sunnyside line? The rich color in this line is a perfect complement to my boardwalk night photo. The 6 x 6 pad made layering under my photo a snap without wasting an entire sheet of 12 x 12 paper and the smaller scale of those patterns added an element of depth. I cut apart one of the border stickers to make some dimensional flower elements and added several pennants cut from the From Me To You paper. Looking forward to making many more projects with this versatile line!"  - Valerie Mangan, Pebbles Design Team Member

"This week I used one of my all time favorite Pebbles collections - Fresh Goods - to create a duo of summer themed cards.  I used my Silhouette and some fun 4x6 Project Life files to make quick work of my cards (I just resized the files to fit on a standard size card front).  The mini alphabet stickers are great for adding sentiments to both cards and scrapbook pages and the red color really makes them pop off my cards.  Happy Summer!"  - Lynn Ghahary, Pebbles Design Team Member

More Summertime projects with Wendy Sue and Mandie


"Some of my favorite summertime photos are the ones I’ve snapped while our little family has just been relaxing in the backyard on a warm summer evening - after the grass has been cut and the air is filled with that yummy scent, messy kid hair and faces, mismatched clothing, no cares in the world except to enjoy each other.  That’s what the photos on this page are – and they are some of my faves – my oldest & youngest just chilling together next to the pond … relaxing and enjoying each other.  I love the bright, bold colors from the Sunnyside collection and they just scream “summer” to me!"  - Wendy Sue Anderson, Pebbles Design Team Member

"I LOVE the new Sunny Side line.  Everything about it ... the colors, the patterns.  It is a perfect fit for a summer layout. Here I used the 6x6 pad to cut out popsicles. For the title, I mixed  a rub on, die cut and corrugated alphas (aren't those adorable?!).    I love the way it turned out.  Mixing the fonts makes a fun & interesting look!"  - Mandie Pierce, Pebbles Design Team Member

“I really love the colors in our new Sunnyside collection. Especially the touches of yellow: they remind me of sunshine, lemonade, and SUMMER!

"The girls have super cute green swimming suits this year so I decided to create a monochromatic green layout celebrating their first trip through the sprinkler! I pulled out green patterned papers from a variety of collections and added several green embellishments. The patterned papers were punched into larger and smaller hexagons. We're definitely enjoying summertime at our house!"  - Jill Cornell, Pebbles Design Team Member

Theme: Summertime

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




"This summer although we moved 8000 miles away from our family and friends, we were still able to spend some quality time with them before flying off across the world!  My girls were able to reconnect with their cousins and have a good time doing what cousins do - get dirty and messy and laughing the entire time!  I thought these corrugated alphas were perfect for the "journaling" on this page. Great size and the bold colors are perfect for summer!" - Christa Paustenbaugh, Pebbles Design Team Member

"Yay for summer! I am such a fan of warm weather! And at our house summer means it is time for fruits, vegetables, and flowers to start growing in the backyard! I won't take any credit for any of this, though. It is totally my husband's doing and he does a great job! This year he cut back a little bit and besides flowers is only growing blueberries, a variety of tomatoes, and peppers. For "Summer Week" I decided to do a layout about the fruits of his labor. The fun, new Sunnyside line went perfectly with some of the pictures I took from our backyard the other day. Since they coordinate so well, I mixed in the clear stickers from the Country Picnic line for the title. Thanks for looking!"  - Gretchen McElveen, Pebbles Design Team Member

"I absolutely ADORE the new Sunnyside collection.  The color combination is so much fun, especially the splash of dark navy paired with the brighter pinks and oranges.  I thought these photos of my niece Gia on Easter morning were perfect for this collection.  Banners are such a fun trend right now and the "From Me To You" paper is chock full of them.  I added several to my layout to house my title and dimensional butterfly embellishments."  - Lynn Ghahary, Pebbles Design Team Member

Hope you get to work with this fabulous collection." - Mel Blackburn, Pebbles Design Team Member

"The colors in this new collection are so bright and happy and fun!  And guess what - there's a 6x6 pad - yay!!  I love every single piece of this entire collection, but my very very favorite part is the "From Me To You" paper - it's full of tags and tabs and cute little flags with fun sayings that would be so fun for cards OR layouts!  I used six of the little flags on my layout with photos from our very first visit to the ocean.  It was freezing outside - way too cold for us to get in the water - but the kids enjoyed exploring the beach and just taking it all in.  The photos aren't very colorful, but the little pops of color work well with all of the bright colors in the Sunnyside papers - this is one collection I'll be using over and over again!"  - Wendy Sue Anderson, Pebbles Design Team Member

Product Focus: Sunnyside

All this week on the Pebbles blog we'll be focusing on one of our brand new collections - Sunnyside.  Sweeter than a day at the park, Sunnyside takes you from fragrant flowerbeds to fluffy clouds in this darling everyday collection. Warm hues of blue, teal, yellow, orange, pink and green create a scene for butterflies, birds and banners to fly.


"This collection is so fun and colourful. To me it calls for beach pictures and outdoor adventures. The corrugated alpha are a great finishing touch in terms of texture.  It was fun to start working with Sunnyside."  - Sarah Webb, Pebbles Design Team Member

"I'm ready to say it - Sunnyside has surpassed Fresh Goods as my favorite Pebbles line to date!

AND cardmakers rejoice - it even comes in a 6x6 pad so you get a tiny version of each of the cute sentiments!" - Ashley Stephens, Pebbles Design Team Member

Free For All Friday

Happy Friday everyone! We are wrapping up the week with a fabulous "free for all" project from one of our design team members.



"Today both of my projects feature the Pebbles clothes pins. I love using the pins especially to hold a bow or another small embellishment. The clothes pins are such a cute and fun embellishment to use on a project, very versatile and are offered in a multitude of colors. I think these are must have for any scrapbooker!"  - Mel Blackburn, Pebbles Design Team Member

Sketchy Thursday


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



"I love this sketch with it's block design and stuck pretty closely to it.  I've been wanting to use these photos of my oldest daughter for some time and this was the perfect opportunity.  The dimensional journaling spot from Fresh Goods was perfect and using the smaller alphas, I found a way to make a title work in the small half circle.  No big techniques on this one, because it was all about the story for me this time!" - Christa Paustenbaugh, Pebbles Design Team Member

 "This is such a cool sketch and I tried to stay pretty close it! These pictures are from a cruise we took last summer with my sister and brother in law. I like the flags and pennants on this layout because I thought they were very "cruise-y". I even made my own toothpick flags using the Hip Hip Hooray Flag Banner Kit. Instead of using the string in the kit, I wrapped a few of the stickers around toothpicks I had at home already and voila! I made cute, glittery toothpick flags!" - Gretchen McElveen, Pebbles Design Team Member

Whip It Up Wednesday




"For this week's assignment I wanted to make a non traditional card so I made a card that you can slide in the envelope.  The card and the treat box were very simple and I could do them both in less than 30 minutes."  - Eva Pizarro, Pebbles Design Team Member

How To Tuesday



"Party hats are one of my favorite ways to create party decor! I have created a party hat for my daughters for every birthday. If you were having a smaller get-together you could make a hat for each party-goer or just focus on the birthday boy or girl if that would be too many hats to create. I love the Hip Hip Hooray collection and the colors are perfect for boys or girls! Today I'm going to share some tips and techniques to make these quick and easy party hats."  - Jill Cornell, Pebbles Design Team Member

First, cut a large circle from one piece of patterned paper either using a template or die-cut machine. Try to make the circle as large as possible and then cut it in half. (You'll be able to get two hats out of one sheet of paper).


About 2" from one side of the half circle, place a line of hot glue. Fold the paper into a cone shape so that it is adhered with the hot glue.


Use pre-made tissue trim or create your own by layering strips of tissue paper, sewing down the center and cutting with a scissors. Adhere the tissue trim to the bottom of the hats and place some through the top.


Hot glue a toothpick flag to the top of the hat.  Additionally, deDecorate hat with the age of the recipient by using number stickers and a punched scalloped circle.


Measure elastic string around child's head and staple to inside of hat.


Enjoy your party!
