More Walnut Grove Projects with Kim and Renee


"Recently my friend and I had a bit of a photoshoot. I had my boys with me and my friend snapped these photos of my eldest son and I when we were taking a break. I love these sweet photos of the two of us, he is not much for having his photo taken so these are all the more special. When I downloaded and edited my photos I loved the soft teal colours in the photos ... and when Lynn gave me the Walnut Grove collection assignment I knew these photos would be just perfect, the teal in these papers is to die for!"  - Kim Jeffress, Pebbles Design Team Member

"The Walnut Grove collection has a fantastic combination of neutrals with pops of color. I made this fall-themed layout with one of my favorite family photos. No die cutting machine was used on this page. I plucked some leaves off of my favorite trees in our neighborhood, traced the shapes of my leaves onto the different pattern papers, cut them out, and added some machine stitching to them before attaching them to my page. I think these leaf embellishments look Wonder-Fall! Pun intended." - Renee Zwirek, Pebbles Design Team Member

More Walnut Grove Projects with Christa and Shawna


"Walnut Grove is such a beautiful, versatile line.  I can forsee using it for lots of different subjects.  I love how the woodgrain paper looks as a background with the fun, bright colors on top.  Normally when I want the bright colors to pop off the background Ii go for kraft cardstock. In this instance the woodgrain acts in the same way making all the bright elements stand out.  This could work as the perfect background paper for any of the Pebbles collections."  - Shawna Webster, Pebbles Design Team Member

"I am absolutely in love with this new Pebbles line and couldn't wait to get my hands on it in person!  The rich colors are really amazing and even better in person.  I whipped up this card quickly as my husband and I celebrate 15 years of wedded bliss!  I just punched some circles from the phrase cards and layered with stickers and some twine.  Very simple card with a sweet sentiment."  - Christa Paustenbaugh, Pebbles Design Team Member

More Walnut Grove Projects with Wendy Sue and Donna


"I think it’s a natural reaction to see a line of product that has flower embellishments and dismiss it if you have a house full of boys to scrapbook.  I’m here to say…NOT SO FAST!  First of all, there’s nothing wrong with flowers on a boy page – who made that silly rule anyway?  And second of all, be sure to look at each piece individually, and not the collection as a whole.  You just might be surprised at how many of the pieces work wonderfully for boy themed pages!  That’s definitely the case with Walnut Grove.  Sure, there are plenty of flowers and butterflies, but look past those and you will find gorgeous woodgrain and kraft pieces, bright primary colors, oodles of banners & phrases, and plenty of other pieces that will work for your oh-so-boyish photos!  And if you want to throw in a flower or two (as I did)… hey, that’s your prerogative!! ;)"  - Wendy Sue Anderson, Pebbles Design Team Member

"My all-time favorite scrapbooking product is patterned paper.  Sometimes I like to use a lot on a layout,  and then other times I pick just one pattern that I really love to help showcase my photos and the story I'm trying to tell.  I absolutely love the kraft patterned papers that are part of the new Walnut Grove collection (bonus: they are double-sided!)  One of my favorites is the chevron pattern of Cassandra, which I used here as my background paper.  I chose to finish this page by adding some pops of color with the patterned strips at the bottom of the layout as well as with a few layered flowers and cardstock stickers."  - Donna Jannuzzi, Pebbles Design Team Member

“It’s true, I’m a card maker at heart. Pebbles new Walnut Grove collection makes my card making heart SO happy! I created these three cards using the stickers from just one sheet. And honestly, I have plenty of stickers left from that same sheet for at least three more cards. I added a few little twine and stitched accents and let the stickers and patterned paper speak for themselves. Just love this new collection.”  - Kim Kesti, Pebbles Design Team Member

I am in love with the little quote tags.  Perfect for any card or layout.  These little cards were very easy to make and used some of my extra scraps from a layout I am working on.  Can't wait to hang them on a cute black bag for a special someone."  - Patricia Kumfer, Pebbles Design Team Member

Product Focus: Walnut Grove


All this week on the Pebbles blog we will be focusing on one of our brand new collections - Walnut Grove.  Stroll through fields of prairie flowers and wrap up in the textures of the homestead with Walnut Grove. Teal, blue, yellow and pinks, ranging from blush to cranberry, are accented beautifully with black, making the perfect palette for patterns inspired by textiles and nature. 


"I was so excited to play with these new Walnut Grove goodies. I have to admit, I started making this layout before I even had pictures chosen to include. I knew I wanted to use the fabulous woodgrain paper with some bright colors, and when I found these photos of my daughter all decked out this summer standing next to a similar wooden fence, I knew they would be perfect. She is very particular about her "fashion" and accessorizing and was quite a sight marching around the Strawberry Festival we were attending that day!"  - Emily Spahn, 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.


“This picture was taken this summer during our vacation in south of France.  To make my layout, I started from my picture. I love this “sunny” picture with my son and his beautiful smile!  I then chose to work with “sunny” colors like yellow and some orange and also with white for contrast.  I reproduced the sun’s rays with paper and stitched with vellum.  I also added foliage and flowers to complement the nature theme of my photo!”  - Amelie Mordret, Pebbles Design Team Member

"Each spring for the last several years, my husband and I have taken our kids to a local conservatory's annual butterfly exhibit.  It is an activity that each and every member of our little family enjoys and anticipates.  We can hardly wait to be in a room amongst hundreds of butterflies floating overhead, and hope to be a brief landing spot for one or possibly even two of them!  As you can imagine, this scenario leads to loads of fun photo opportunities and memories captured.  The darling, stitched and dimensional butterflies from Pebbles Sunnyside collection were a must for documenting our annual excursion."  - Jaclyn Rench, 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 *exclusive* sketch by Becky Fleck.

 


"I really loved the sketch this week, and decided to stick fairly close to it, but adjusted it to work with an 8.5 x 11 page instead.  For the journaling I used the same paper as the background, but from the 6x6 pad, so that I had smaller lines to add my journaling on.  I also have to say how fabulous those thickers are, the glitter is just gorgeous!"  - Laura Craigie, Pebbles Design Team Member

“As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew immediately which photos I was going to use.  I did want to stick to the sketch as closely as possible, using the photo placement and a doily cut out with a Pebbles doily file from my Silhouette worked as a nice mat behind my photos. I wanted to add lots of different paper from the Sunnyside collection and so I thought I would make the most of my collection by taking advantage of the double sided patterns.”  - Nicole Nowosad, Pebbles Design Team Member

Whip It Up Wednesday




"Ever wonder what you can do with the clear plastic clamshell packaging from embellishments and adhesives? Here's the answer: make quick and easy candy holders! Simply remove the package insert, measure it, and cut patterned paper to the same size. Use the packaging insert as a template to round the corners of the patterned paper with scissors. Slip the patterned paper into the packaging in place of the insert, add a sticker to the front of the packaging, and tie on some ribbon. All that's left is to make someone very happy by handing it to them filled with candy!"  - Vivian Masket, Pebbles Design Team Member

How To Tuesday




"When I first got into card making, these were some of the first “fun fold” cards I made, and they’re still my go-to cards for fast and easy gift card giving.  They are tiny, but oh-so-cute, and people love opening them and seeing the fun gift card inside."  - Tiffany Hood, Pebbles Design Team Member


First, cut a piece of 12” x 4” cardstock.  Score it at 3”, 6” and 9”, and accordion fold it.


Then, place adhesive on three edges of the inside of the cardstock as shown with yellow highlighter.


And then press together so you have an inside folded section, and two outside sections. (The top fold shouldn’t have any adhesive across it, this is where the gift card will go when we cut the opening).


Then on the fold, cut with scissors about ½ inch down from the fold, and ¼ inch in from both sides.


This is where your gift card will go.


Make a notch in the opening using a circle punch.  I’ve used a 1 ¼ inch punch here, but any size, and any shape, will work.  This makes it easier to get the gift card out.


Now the inside is complete!


Decorate the front as desired, and then wrap a piece of ribbon around the gift card and adhere.  Make sure to glue so that the ends of the ribbon meet at the top.



Insert your gift card, and tie a bow at the top to close.  Embellish, and give away!

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 to mix and match Pebbles collections! The colors of the different lines work very well together so you can use all the little pieces you have left from different projects. For this layout I used the Hip Hip Hooray collection mixed with some Country Picnic embellishments and Sunnyside. The layout is about my love for crosstitch, I used to do it a lot before scrapbooking and recently I finished a project that I had left incomplete."  - Eva Pizarro, Pebbles Design Team Member

Ha!).  My friend Crystal has started going with me.  I so enjoy our time chatting and getting in shape together.  I wanted to create a layout to document that time!"  - Mandie Pierce, Pebbles Design Team Member

Meet the Team: Laurel Seabrook and Nicole Nowosad


Laurel Seabrook lives in Canada with her family.  She started scrapbooking 13 years ago although she has been scrapbooking in some way or another all of her life.  Laurel describes her style as clean and simple with added bits of layering and doo dads.  We are so happy to have Laurel join us this term.


"To create the sun I used my Cricut for the circles and then I just free handed the strips for the rays.  I like the irregularity the free handing creates as I am not one for things being symmetrical.  I also love to add machine stitching to most of my projects as it is such an easy way to add a bit of texture and interest."  - Laurel Seabrook, Pebbles Design Team Member

"I am a huge fan of bright, vibrant colours, so the Sunnyside collection by Pebbles is perfect for me! I just knew that I wanted to use a variety of the colors and patterns from the collection to reflect my daughter’s smiley face. I like to mix color and pattern and have a real love for paper and adding little bits and pieces to my page! I love the little clothespins by Pebbles as they enable me to do just that!” - Nicole Nowosad, Pebbles Design Team Member

Shawna Webster lives in Hawaii with her husband and their two children.  She started scrapbooking 11 years ago when her first son was born.  We are so thrilled to have Shawna join our team this year.


"Sometimes zi have trouble figuring out what I want to title a layout. This is when I go straight for my stickers and see if something will work. In this case it did with the sunny pool weather.  The Pebbles Sunnyside sticker was the perfect fit."  - Shawna Webster, Pebbles Design Team Member

"For my first layout, I wanted to show you which techniques I prefer in scrapbooking.  This first page reflects entirely my style! As you may see in the future, some techniques are always present on my layouts like layering, stitching and dimensional embellishments.  I also love white! There is always a touch of this color on my work. I like the contrast between white and others colors! And the Sunnyside papers are perfect for this! I hope you enjoy my work and I'm very glad to be part of the team."  - Amelie Mordret, Pebbles Design Team Member

Meet the Team: Renee Zwirek and Jaclyn Rench


Renee Zwirek lives in Illinois with her husband and two sweet little girls.  Renee began scrapbooking in 2005 and loves to play with patterned papers and whimsical embellishments on her projects.  We are thrilled to have Renee join our team this year.





"Even though our plans to go to Disney World this summer fell through, we still had a fun, busy, and great summer staycation! I made this mini album over-filled with our summer memories. The hardest part was looking through over 1200 photos and picking out my favorites. The easiest part was using the Sunnyside collection for most of my album. It's such a wonderful collection! And, shockingly, I still have plenty left over for more projects." - Renee Zwirek, Pebbles Design Team Member

"I just love the versatility of the Sunnyside collection.  While the bright colors and cute icons that it features, naturally lend themselves to a summertime feel, it's also neutral enough in themes and patterns to highlight a multitude of photos.  I was immediately drawn to many of the pink and floral elements in the collection.  They proved to be the perfect backdrop to showcase some favorite photos of my baby girl and help me document an important milestone in her first year of life - that brand new TOOTHY smile!"  - Jaclyn Rench, Pebbles Design Team Member

Meet the Team: Kathy Martin and Vivian Masket


Kathy Martin lives in North Carolina with her husband and their 11 year old son.  Kathy is a self proclaimed paper craft addict and has been making cards since 2001 and scrapbooking since 2003.  We are so happy to have Kathy join our team this term.




"I’m so excited today to share with you my first Pebbles design team projects! Oh what fun it was to create these cards with the new Sunnyside collection! I fell in love with the Dimensional Butterflies and the corrugated ABC stickers! It’s like being a kid in a candy store playing with all these yummy Pebbles goodies! I’ve been on a kick with the mini Polaroid accents and I’ll let you in on my secret for making them, the Spellbinder’s square Nestabilities set. Just die cut your square and then trim around it. Easy!"  - Kathy Martin, Pebbles Design Team Member

Vivian Masket lives in Colorado with her family.  Vivian's style is clean and simple and she loves to combine colorful patterned papers with neutral background and unexpected whimsical touches.  We are thrilled to have Vivian join our team this year. 


"The gorgeous colors and flowers in the Sunnyside line match perfectly with this set of photos of my daughter. A large title, die cut from the Tickled Pink patterned paper, becomes a fun embellishment with the addition of a Dimensional Flower in place of the dot on the letter "i." Banner elements further embellish the layout and create flow. I need to heed my journaling amidst the craziness of the start of the school year (I'm an instructional coach) and election season (my husband is a political scientist) and try to carve out a little more down time for all of us!"  - Vivian Masket, Pebbles Design Team Member

Meet the Team: Donna Jannuzzi and Kim Jeffress


Donna Jannuzzi lives in California with her husband and three boys.  She has scrapbooked here and there since she was a child and throughout college, but didn’t truly fall in love with the hobby until after her oldest son was born a little more than 6 years ago.  We are thrilled to have Donna join our team this year.



"In February of this year I gave birth to our third boy, Samuel.  His arrival was a true blessing for our family.  Even though I didn’t feel my prettiest in the weeks following this birth, I knew that I would want pictures of the two of us together.  The lighting in these photos isn’t the best, which is why I converted them to black and white.  Also, that change allowed me to put a lot of color and pattern into my layout design.  I can honestly say that even as a mom to three boys, I adore the Sunnyside collection.  The pinks in the collection are offset by the loveliest navy and blue-green, and I can’t get enough of the polka-dot and ledger patterns.  It was the perfect choice to scrapbook this memory of Sam’s early days.  I also love the Sunnyside collection for card making and plan on using every last scrap of the From Me to You patterned paper!"  - Donna Jannuzzi, Pebbles Design Team Member

Kim Jeffress comes from Brisbane Australia and is a SAHM to two rambunctious boys aged 5 and 3 . They are her scrapping inspiration, she loves recording all the little memories about their lives that will only be forgotten in the future.  You will always find journalling on her layouts, it helps Kim to tell the all important stories.  We are thrilled to have Kim join our team this year.


"For my first layout for Pebbles I decided to use some older photos of my youngest son when he was 16 months old. He was such a "talker" even at that young age so I wanted to record this memory. The colours in the Sunnyside collection was just perfect for my photos. For me I am all about matching my photos to the colours in my papers ... and these papers and embellies were textbook! I am excited about the year ahead and I look forward to sharing more fun Pebbles projects with you all."  - Kim Jeffress, Pebbles Design Team Member

Meet the Team: Tiffany Hood and Emily Spahn


Tiffany Hood lives in Utah with her husband and three children, two handsome boys and a darling little girl.  She has been scrapbooking for about 16 years now.  We are thrilled to have Tiffany join the Pebbles team this term.


"I had so much fun playing with the Sunnyside collection.  I love the color palette  and the darling butterflies, clothespins, and embellishments.  This layout is about a day that I followed my daughter around as she explored the garden, picking berries and looking at all the bugs.  She was lost in her own little world, and it was fun to re-experience those things again with her.  I cut the 3D flowers using my Silhouette Cameo, and the stickers and embellishments were popped up using American Crafts fabulous foam dots. I used my sewing machine around the layout to add a bit more fun texture and design, and then a bit of twine and a cute clothespin to top it off."  - Tiffany Hood, Pebbles Design Team Member

Emily Spahn live in Illinois with her husband and two children.  She has been scrapbooking ever since 5th grade, but got "serious" about the hobby around 2007.  We are so excited to have Emily join our team this term. 


"I am so excited to have my first project featured on the Pebbles blog!  I took this set of photos of my children during one the final weeks of summer break.   My kiddos had a lot of ups and downs this summer, but by the end they finally realized that it might actually be fun to get along with each other! I wanted to include their entire interaction rather than a single photo, so I printed out two 4x6 collages with four photos each.  I loved how well the bright colors in the Sunnyside line coordinate with their crazy pajamas!"  - Emily Spahn, Pebbles Design Team Member

“One of my favorite techniques is color blocking because you can put lots of photos in your  layouts and finish in no time!. For this layout I stitched different papers from the Sunny side collection and created a border with my circle punch. ”  - Eva Pizarro, Pebbles Design Team Member

"My son's smile is contagious!!! When I saw the Sunnyside collection, I new it would work perfect with my lemonade stand photos of him.  This is such a fun colorful collection it truly brings out the FUN-ness (I know that's not a word) of the photo. I used my Cuttlebug to emboss some cardstock and circles to add some texture to my page. I love how its simple but yet exploding with life. This layout makes me wish summer wasn't already over."  - Patricia Kumfer, Pebbles Design Team Member

Meet the Team: Laura Craigie and Kim Kesti


Design Team member Laura Craigie lives in Canada with her husband and their three little boys.  She has been scrapbooking for nearly 7 years since becoming pregnant with her first son.  We are so lucky to have Laura as part of our team again this term.




"I consider myself to be primarily a cardmaker, and one of my favorite things to do is make card sets. I usually test and move around a design on the first card till I've got a design I like then it makes doing more so easy.  I chose the Kraft patterned paper to cut out a bunch of flower shapes with my die cut machine and it they came together nicely and added a fun dimension to the card."  - Laura Craigie, Pebbles Design Team Member

Meet the Team: Wendy Sue Anderson and Christa Paustenbaugh


Wendy Sue Anderson lives in Utah with her husband and their four beautiful children.  Wendy Sue has been scrapbooking as far back as "forever."  She can still remember the first day she walked through the doors of Pebbles In My Pocket (the origin of Pebbles Inc) in Orem, Utah nearly 15 years ago.  Wendy Sue is one of our returning design team members and we are thrilled to have her on board for another year.


" I just can’t seem to get enough of the Sunnyside collection.  No matter how many projects I create with it (and there have been quite a few!), I still want to do more!  Today I created a simple little card set with matching envelopes!  I used a die-cut machine to create the little label on the envelopes with the cardstock that coordinates with the Sunnyside papers."  - Wendy Sue Anderson, Pebbles Design Team Member

"I realized when I look through photos that I am mostly in my iPhone/Instagram photos, but honestly these are some of my favorites because they are truly candid.  I wanted to introduce myself from the jumping point of where I am now: happy.  These photos make me feel happy and definitely something I want to get across in my page for my girls.  This page definitely shows my design style.  I'm in love with my Silhouette, normally put a bit of stitching on each layout, use multiple (normally small) photos and add a touch of layering.  Helps that these colors are phenomenal too in this line!"  - Christa Paustenbaugh, Pebbles Design Team Member

Meet the Team: Lynn Ghahary and Mandie Pierce

Today is a big day here on the Pebbles blog as we officially welcome our brand new 2012 - 2013 Pebbles Design Team! Over the next few weeks we will be introducing each of our new design team members along with sharing their first "official" projects as part of the team.  Let's meet the team!


First let me introduce myself.  My name is Lynn Ghahary and I live in New Jersey with my husband and high school sweetheart Salar and our two wild and crazy boys, Darian and Brandon.  I have been designing for Pebbles since 2009 and acting as the Design Team Coordinator since 2010.  I am thrilled to be on board as the Design Team Coordinator and Blog Hostess for Pebbles for another year!



"I just adore this photo of my two boys and their two best buddies (who also happen to be brothers) I took at the local Fourth of July parade this summer.   These four boys have been inseparable this summer and it's such a joy for me to watch them all hang out together.  I used a combination of several different collections on this page focusing in on the red and blue in the boys' clothing.  I LOVE the clear backed stickers from Pebbles and placed them right along the bottom of my photo for my title.  It looks as if I added the text in my photo editing software but it's really stickers - so fun!"  - Lynn Ghahary, Pebbles Design Team Member

Design team member Mandie Pierce currently lives in Vacaville, California with her husband Troy and their 3 children Claire, Noah, and Collin.  Mandie started "officially" scrapbooking in 1999 when her oldest was just a baby, but has always kept cards, photos, ticket stubs and other memorabilia in a album.  Mandie describes her style as "simple with some fun thrown in" and we couldn't agree more.  We are thrilled to have Mandie join us for another year!


"For this layout I used Sunnyside and some letter stickers from Hip, Hip Hooray.  I just love the Sunnyside line.  The colors and patterns can be used for just about any theme.  This is a documentation of just a few of my shoe photos from the past month.  I think maybe I take too many!  But is there any way you can go wrong with shoes?  I don't think so!  I am excited to be back with Pebbles this year and am looking forward to a fantastic year!"  - Mandie Pierce, Pebbles Design Team Member
