Back To Basics Blog Hop with Pebbles Inc.

Hello!

I am so excited to be a part of the 2013-14 Design Team at Pebbles Inc.

Today we are doing a "Back to Basics" blog hop to celebrate the new team and get you excited about scrapbooking with the Basics collection from Pebbles.

The Basics collection includes paper, stickers, mini clothespins, tape, a cardmaking pad, flowers, Thickers and other fun embellishments that you can mix and match with any of the other Pebbles lines. In today's hop you will see many creative ideas from our 2013-14 Design Team that will hopefully inspire you to create. You can find more ideas at the Pebbles blog

Here is what I created: 



The hearts and "Minnie Mouse" were cut using my Silhoeutte Cameo. 


I really like these cute little envelopes and cards! The glitter Candy Dots add some fun color and dimension to my page and no project of mine would ever be complete without a mix of alpha stickers.


For this page I used the following: Basics paper pad, Cards & Pockets, Journaling Cards, Baker's Twine, Decorative Tape, Begonia and Aqua Foam letter stickers, Red Glitter Candy Dots, Blue Candy Dots and Ash Glitter Foam Stickers. 

The rest of the team created some great projects as well. Take a look:

Giveaway time!!! 
Pay attention because I have three to tell you about!

I will be giving away one of my favorite basics- paper punches. I use punches a lot and the American Crafts Knock-Out punch kit is terrific. It has a variety of basic edge punches that are perfect for scrapbooking, cardmaking and other paper crafts. I received one as a member of the American Crafts team and then one as a Pebbles DT member so I am sharing my extra set with one of my lucky readers. 


Giveaway #1: This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only due to international shipping charges (so sorry!). Simply sign up to follow my blog and leave a comment telling me one thing you always have on hand for your scrapping projects and make sure to leave a way for me to contact you if you are the winner. The giveaway will close Friday night at 12 midnight CST. I will choose a winner via random.org and post that on Monday morning so be sure to check back! 

Giveaway #2: I am also doing a giveaway of a Pebbles Basics prize pack containing paper, some Basics Thickers and a few other goodies. Leave another comment for this giveaway telling me your favorite color to scrap and I will choose a random winner from all who leave a comment for THIS givaway and American Crafts/Pebbles will send you a fun package. This is open to both U.S. and international residents. Woohoo! This giveaway is also open until Friday, September 6 as well. Please leave a way for me to contact you in case you are the winner. If I can't contact you, I will have to choose another winner, which would be so sad. Good luck! Thanks to Pebbles Inc.for this fun giveaway.

Giveaway #3: There is another giveaway at the Pebbles blog so make sure to leave a comment to be in the running for that amazing prize! This prize package will be worth over $200 so you want to make sure and try for that one!

Have a great day and happy hopping!
