Hi Everyone, Christa here hosting the blog for you this week. I must say that I'm pretty nervous since it's my first time hosting the blog, but excited for the projects the design team created. They made it pretty easy for me this week!
There is so much excitement with CHA-W this week that I'm also kind of like that kid in the back of the classroom who is waving her hand with excitement, yet everyone is looking elsewhere! I get it, I really do, since I'm anxiously awaiting all the news and photos of the show as well. So while you're waiting, sit back, grab some coffee and take a look at what our fabulous design team whipped up for you this week! And if you're looking for Pebbles CHA goodness, then just scroll down to the sneaks so you can take a look for yourself on what is coming your way soon from Pebbles!
While we're all waiting on the new Pebbles product to reach our doorstep, we're going to take a look this week at how we can keep using those bits that we have left in our stash! And I know everyone is feeling the pinch of the economy and wanting to get the most bang for our buck when it comes to our supplies, or if you're like me, the mountain of products waiting to be used up!! So this week we're going to take a look at how we can use supplies not just for layouts and cards, but for home accents too, and on Friday we'll look at how we can use all those scraps we have saved up to use on a layout.
For this challenge I chose to make a framed accent for our home. We are constantly moving (this summer is move #7 in 12 years-yikes) so our decor has to be versatile and mobile and I thought this would be perfect to fill those spaces that I'm not quite sure where to put something! I picked up a $5 frame at Target, painted it a darker brown to highlight the project.
I used entirely the Lil Miss line on this one, with some help from my Thickers for the final touch.
Next Susan went above and beyond and made 2 projects for this challenge! First up is a lovely Welcome sign using the Skipping Along line. Perfect for an entryway or on a door.
Her next project is a beautiful garden plaque using the So Tweet line. I am loving the watering can in the corner and think this is just adorable for any screened in porch or outdoor area-so colorful!
Emeline made this adorable Memo Board. This really pops with the red Pebbles ribbons hot glued to the canvas to hold all sorts of things: cards, notes, school assignments, you name it!
Akiko also made a welcome sign, but this one would look perfect sitting on an entry table displayed for all those coming to visit. She used lots of different Pebbles products on this one too: papers as a background, the ladybug sticker embellished with chipboard and a candy dot, and finally she used the chalks to get the letters the exact color she wanted.
I was really hoping someone would do a frame too and Mimi did just that and I love it! She used the Lil Miss line to wrap around her frame then used some chipboard and a glittered floral sticker to finish it off. I think it highlights the photo beautifully and can compliment any room!
I'm absolutely loving what Liz did with this clock! She removed the hands from an old round clock and traced paper from the So Tweet collection for the background. Then she used her Cricut to cut different heart shapes to overlap in the center. She replaced the hands, put on some accented Pebbles chips and voila: a super cute clock!
Lisa made an incredible set of wall art for her daughter's bedroom. I'm pretty sure both of my daughters would be in heaven with these pieces in their rooms! You can't go wrong with little girls, butterflies and bright colors! These are just beautiful!
Ginnifer made this super cute bow holder for a little girls' room. We all have those hair clips and bows that are lying around and probably get lost amongst the toys! This is a great way to keep it all in one spot!
Amy also made 2 projects for this challenge-wow, some go getters in this group-I love it! She made an adorable frame with a play on words with the Lil' Miss line for a photo of her lil miss!
And she made this great cover for photos for the "Nana" of the family! Grandma's are always big fans of photo albums, especially if they're hand made!
And last, but certainly not least, is Deanna who made a colorful frame as a gift for an expecting friend. I'm sure her friend will love to display this in the baby's room to showcase her beautiful baby!
Hope you enjoyed all the projects here, and if you have any Pebbles home decor projects of your own, we would love to see those too! I'll be back on Wednesday with some things that give me inspiration and then again on Friday with a fun and easy tutorial on using those scraps!
