quick spring gift | pebbles, inc.

A few months ago, I created a fun (and easy, as always) little spring gift project to share on the Pebbles, Inc. blog! Instead of my usual "treat" gifts, I took a cue from Mother Nature for this one.  Here's a look at my finished project.

easter cards | pebbles, inc.

I'm not really an "in your face" type of person...so when I created these easter cards earlier this year for Pebbles, I wanted the Easter theme to be subtle...but still obvious.  The cute bunny paper in the "Spring Fling" collection was the key!  Here's a peek at the set of cards I made.

As always, you can find step-by-step photos of this card project on the Pebbles, Inc. blog! And I might be sharing my card-making secret over there as well! ;)

the gift of words | pebbles, inc.

I believe words are pretty powerful...I believe they can change an attitude, a day, even a life. If you've ever visited my home, you'd know this to be true.  I have words everywhere. Single words, quotes, song lyrics, lots and lots of words.  And if I can make the words pretty...well, that's a win all-around! 
I used the beauty and wisdom from Jen Hadfield's "Everyday" collection to create a few fun projects recently for the Pebbles, Inc. blog:

card organization | pebbles, inc.

Do you have lots of handmade cards just sitting in a box or basket, waiting for the right occasion to give away?  I sure did...and every time I needed a card, it took a while to dig through the stack to find the right one.  Not anymore!  And it took less than an hour to put this project together! This is my new card station:
How to organize handmade greeting cards - a project by @wendysuea with the DIY Home Collection by Jen Hadfield for @Pebblesinc.
It was really easy to put together.  I started with this empty wooden box:

And I used with this awesome recipe card/file die to cut several papers from the DIY Home collection.

I printed off some small labels to separate the themes of my cards, trimmed them, and glued them right onto the patterned dividers.

a quick "favorite recipe" gift project | pebbles inc.

If you've known me for any amount of time that's included autumn...then you probably know I love (love, love, love x100) pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.  So, last fall, when I was assigned to create a project using the "Harvest" collection by Pebbles, Inc., it was a no-brainer that my project had to include my favorite recipe!

"Happy Day" Card Set | Pebbles, Inc.

Do you like having a stash of fun cards on-hand?  I sure do!  I love being able to pull one out any old time so I can write in one to share with a friend!  The "Happy Day" collection is one of my all-time favorites from Pebbles, so I decided to pull it out and add some cards to my stash.

A set of cards like this, wrapped together and tied with jute, would make a lovely gift as well - I'm thinking teachers might especially appreciate a cute little stack of notecards!
