It's my final day on the blog and I've had a lot of fun seeing everyone's projects and hearing the response! So, as you've seen, Friday's on the Pebbles blog is the day the design team member provides you with a tip on a technique, shows you how to do the technique, etc. Well, this part of hosting the blog had me THE MOST nervous. You see, I'm the most untechniquey person I know, and I obviously like to make up words to boot!
My tip for you this week is to use up those scraps. We all saw those beautiful Pebbles products and paper lines in the CHAW pictures so now it's time to use up the products we already have to make room! I know that's what I'm doing and am super excited to get my hands on those new products! The design team did some great layouts to show how to use up those little scraps you have laying around.
When I have scraps I normally use my go to design of a grid, whether it's using a circle punch or square punch to make that grid. I love all punches to use up scraps and add some extra embellishment to layouts. For this layout I used this punch:
With this I cut from scraps in the Linnie Bell collection and made a grid for this layout:
I also added some butterflies with the Martha Stewart punch for an added touch:
After I arranged the circles, I just added some extra embellishments, like Pebbles Chips, and candy dots on the flowers. Voila, scraps are used and a layout created!
Celeste made a layout from scraps that she had leftover from this project:
From these scraps she cut candles to highlight her family's Hanukkah celebration and it turned out so, so well!
Mimi used her scraps by making strips on her layout, plus outlining the cardstock to make a great frame around the entire layout!
Emeline also used a circle punch for her scraps, however she used many different sizes and layered them beautifully! Love how this layout looks with all the colors!
Sophia chose to go a different route and made a gift box out of scraps rather than a layout and I am so going to copy this! In the 2nd photo you'll notice she lined the inside of the box with paper from the So Tweet collection, then added ribbon and chips on the outside for final embellishment:
Another great way to use up scraps is to frame up photos on your layout like Cherie did. These photos from her baby shower really pop with the color behind them:
And finally, Suzanne made these absolutely gorgeous flowers with her scraps to make embellishments on her layout. The embossed flowers really tied the strips of paper together on the rest of the layout:
And a close up of the flowers:
My time on the blog has been so much fun! Thank you all for taking a look at all the wonderful projects the design team created. Now bring on the new CHA products!!!
