Pebbles guest design work...

Recently I was asked to guest design for Pebbles, Inc., a division of American Crafts, and today I get to share my creations with you! I used mostly their Floral Lane line, right up my alley, and added a few items from The Mr. & Mrs. line. I REALLY enjoyed working with these products! The first layout was actually inspired by the "thank you" sticker. Of course it would be perfect for a card, but I wanted to use it on a layout! I love to write little notes to my girls on my pages. (Someday they will read them, and it will mean something to them. Right now, they are too little to care. lol)
(I'm not sure why Blogger is cutting off the right side of my page, sorry about that.)

I used a Papertrey Ink die (Spiral Notebook Page) to cut the little notebook shapes out of the patterned paper and ran them through the printer for the journaling. Also punched out a doily shape (Parisian Doily) from white cardstock and cut out the middle with a circle punch to add a little spot for the "thank you" sticker.
These are fall pictures, but they seem to work great with these papers none-the-less! I wanted to add a little detail at the bottom, so I stamped with Papertrey Ink's Everyday Button Bits stamp set.

Here is the journaling...
Next, I made another layout and wanted to include all of these fun patterns and colors from the papers! I saw a picture on Pinterest that really sparked my attention HERE. I decided to try it out on a page by painting the limbs of the tree on white cardstock, then I punched several circles from the papers. "You Make Me Smile Everyday"...

I love the dimensional stickers and gorgeous flower brads!! I stamped "happy, happy, joy, joy" with Papertrey Ink's Blooming Button Bits to add a bit of text to my page.

Here's a little thank you card made with the floral paper, a strip of the polkadot paper and some of the dimensional stickers. They are so easy, just peel and stick, and you already have dimension.

Thank you to Pebbles for having me as a guest this month! For a complete supply list and a chance to win some Pebbles products, stop over to the Pebbles blog!

I love when you do layouts. Not that I don't also love your cards but the fact is, I don't do cards.

Whether cards or layouts - more layouts please - your blog is the best eye candy around.
