splash & ride & snow…


This layout was on the Pebbles Inc. blog yesterday.

My assignment was to use these super cute layered felt embellishments.

I chose the BEACH set.


I just love the bright colors and the sturdiness of these felt pieces.

I really love the stitching and buttons that have been added to some of them.

I decided to ground them by stitching with white thread around black cardstock squares,

then placing the embellishments on each block.


I love the font of these letter stickers too – they are just fun and whimsical – I love that there are several sizes of each letter included in the set.  (Here they are in BLACK and they are also available in GREEN!!)


I cut this little date piece from one of the journaling cards by Pebbles (you can see them HERE).  I trimmed it, rounded the corners, and then ran it right through my printer to add the month and year.


The Pebbles team is featuring these felt embellishments all week long, so be sure to check out the Pebbles Inc. blog every day this week for more fun ideas! :o)


I made this card a while ago, but I don’t think I’ve shared it here on my blog.  Of course, it’s using one of my favorite Cosmo Cricket lines, Upcycle


And look at me – I stamped!  I love this sweet vintage bike image from Hero Arts.




We woke up to a couple inches of snow (grrrrrr…) – and it’s still lightly snowing.  I’m hoping it clears up and the sun comes out so our soccer game isn’t cancelled.  Brad got our grill moved around to the back yard and all cleaned up over the weekend and we’ve been grilled our dinner every day since  --  I LOVE grilling…so whether the snow stops or not, I’ll be grilling bruschetta chicken for our dinner tonight. 


  1. LOVE both projects!!!
    Is there an extra plate for dinner...ehem??! :)

  2. Great projects. Love them both. Great idea of topping the felt embellies with black cardstock. I love the look it gave.
    Yucky snow...thankfully we haven't had any just menacing clouds but they keep calling for rain.
    I love brusetta chicken. I am not sure if we tried this recipe before but it does look yummy
