New Pebbles Collections

Two of the newest collections from Pebbles are "Tree House" and "May Bouquet" and we have both in stock! Each collection features beautiful double-sided papers with tons of matching embellishments. There are paper flowers (perfect for layering), decorative brads, affordable stickers and rub-ons, chipboard pieces with a touch of glitter, and clear acetate shapes called "Stackers."

Take a look at Tree House:

Our new 12x12 frames display layouts nicely.

The glittered chipboard is fun to mix and match.

A journaling sticker doesn't always have to be used for writing on. Place it in the corner as an accent to balance your page.

Inexpensive rub-on phrases are great for card makers. They can also be used to create a fun border on a layout.

Don't be afraid to cut up bits of patterned paper and layer the elements with foam squares.

This bicycle was cut out using a "Silhouette" electronic die cutting machine.

Now here's a look at May Bouquet:

Small matching rub-ons are great for accenting a layout or card.

The paper flowers from both collections are perfect for layering. Finish them off with a decorative brad.

Come see what other fun projects we have in the store using these new products from Pebbles!

Personalized Peg Board

Check out this cute project idea designed by Maureen Wilson. She took photos of each family member holding a letter of their last name. The photos were then printed, cut to 4" square, and mod podged onto ceramic coaster tiles. With a peg placed below each person's photo, they now have the perfect space to hang their things...including the dog!

Here's a tip for adhering the photos to the ceramic tiles: Place a thin layer of Mod Podge on the tile. Then center the photo on the tile. Lay a paper towel over the photo, and rub firmly with your thumb, from the middle to the outer edges. This prevents bubbles while keeping your photo free of fingerprints and smudges. Once it’s dry, add another thin coat of Mod Podge to seal your photo.

How's that for a cute idea?

Star Mobile

Maureen Wilson created this adorable mobile using an embroidery hoop, ribbon, clear thread, fine wire, and die cut stars. To keep the strands from tangling as she worked, she wrapped the finished ones in tin foil.

It's a great project for baby's room or to give as a gift!
