holly jolly gift card holders | pebbles, inc.

Are you giving the most popular gift of the season?  Yes, that would be a gift card!  

Quick and Easy Gift Card Holders by @wendysue with the "Holly Jolly" collection from @PebblesInc 

I have grown to love and appreciate them as the best gift ever - because nobody is ever disappointed with their present!  That doesn't mean I don't want to still put a little personal touch on a gift, so usually I'll do that with a card or wrap.  For this year's Christmas gift card gifts, I used the "Holly Jolly" collection to whip up a few cute little gift card holders.

framed pumpkin decor | pebbles inc.

Hello Friends! Today I'd like to share a really quick and easy framed pumpkin project.  Recently I attended a local craft fair and noticed all of the cute and trendy wood decor items.  I don't have a lot of fancy wood-cutting equipment ...but I do have a plethora of random frames and a passion for paper - so here's what I came up with for my quick little autumn gifts: Create a quick and easy home decor gift with a few simple steps! Framed pumpkins by @wendysue with the #WoodlandForest and #TrickOrTreat Collections by @Pebblesinc. 

Are you curious about my technique?  Visit the Pebbles blog HERE to see how I made this cute pumpkin without wood!  And here's the Halloween version too:

Do you like to create shaped cards?  I do!  Here's my latest shaped card creation featuring the "woodland forest" collection from Pebbles Inc.:

shaped autumn leaves cards by @wendysue for @pebblesinc with the "Woodland Forest" collection

 I use my silhouette cameo to create my shaped cards.  It's easy to do with pretty much any shape.I put together a little tutorial for creating shaped cards - the full tutorial is HERE on the Pebbles, Inc. blog!

Autumn colors shaped leaf cards by @wendysue for @pebblesinc with the "Woodland Forest" collection

One tip I forgot to mention over there -- when you're setting up your card in the Silhouette software, be sure to double check the size.  If you want it to fit in a regular A2 envelope, be sure the long side of the card is 5 1/2" or less, and the short side needs to be 4 1/4" or less!

autumn gift trio | echo park paper co.

I always feel extra creative in the fall.  Maybe it's the thought of being all warm and cozy inside the house while the temperatures outside are falling.  Maybe it's all the inspiration around me - both in nature...and in the fun boutiques that are popping up everywhere.  Or perhaps it's the amazing new fall paper collections I get to work with!  This "Fall is in the Air" collection by Echo Park is one of my favorites, for sure!  Here's a look at the gift trio I created for their blog:

scrapbook surprise boxes for sale...

I’ve been cleaning and organizing in my scrapbook room again in preparation for holiday crafting and I’ve put together several “surprise boxes” (medium flat rate priority mail boxes) full of scrappy goodness! And, just like before, when I say full, I really mean full – there’s no room for peanuts or crumpled up shipping paper – these babies are packed tight – and they are HEAVY!

surprise box
It’s a great time to purchase these surprise boxes – with the holidays right around the corner, you could use these products as gifts for others – or for yourself! ;) 
If you are interested in purchasing a surprise box, please e-mail me (wendysueanderson@hotmail.com). 
It’ll work just like before: 
  • Boxes are all different and all random – they may include: patterned paper, cardstock, stickers, stamps, misc. embellishments! I am not going to take photos of all the product in each box (thus the term “surprise boxes”), but I promise there will be a lot more than $40 worth of product in each and every box. A lot more. Much of the product is brand new in it’s original packaging. Some things have been opened and I’ve used a portion (letter stickers, rub-ons, etc.). A few of the stamps might be stained, but a majority of them have never been used – regardless, they all work perfectly. :)
  • $40 per box (which will include flat rate USPS shipping) Unless you are local, of course, you won't have to pay shipping and we can arrange for you to pick up your box.
  • US Shipping only (sorry international friends – it just gets too complicated (and expensive) for these boxes)
  • I will accept payments by PayPal only
  • E-mail me if you’re interested…I will sell them on a first come, first served basis
  • The boxes are packed and taped and ready to go…so as soon as your payment hits my PayPal account, I’ll print your label and ship off your box!
Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions! 
Thank you!
