Celebrate You! Pebbles Basics Blog Hop!

*** Click HERE for Day 1 of the September JADED BLOSSOM release!!!! ***

*** Click HERE for the Trendy Twine Back to School Challenge!!!! ***

Hey everyone!! Welcome to the Pebbles Basics Blog Hop!!  The Pebbles team was challenged to create a project of their choice using the Pebbles Basics collection. We really wanted to show you just how versatile this line is...

I decided to create a card using the Cardmaking Pad, which is a stack of perfectly scored cardstock ready to fold and turn into a card! 


I wanted to keep my card simple and pretty so I used a sheet of solid textured American Crafts cardstock behind my jar. 


My FAVORITE way to give my projects an extra pop, is to use foam tabs to add some dimension to layers or die cuts. My finishing touch is a perfect little pink twine bow. 

Here is a list of everything I used...
- Pebbles Basics Cardmaking Pad
- American Crafts twine
- My Creative Time Many Greetings Stamp Set
- sequins from Dollarstore
- Mason Jar die cut from Silhouette Store
- White gelly roll pen

Here's how today's blog hop is going to work...Visit each blog, leave a sweet note and in some cases enter to win a Pebbles mini giveaway. Once you've stopped by each site, head back over to the Pebbles blog and enter to win a collection of Pebbles Basics products worth $200 (that's a lot of product folks!).

Not only is Pebbles having a giveaway, but they are also sponsoring a giveaway for some of our individual blogs!! Included in the giveaway is a selection of Pebbles Basics paper, 2 sets of Thickers, Clothespins, Chips Tags and washi tape!! 


***This is an example of what is in the prize pack - it is NOT EXACTLY what you will be getting***

This little package is worth over $50!!! All you have to do to be entered into the giveaway is make sure you are a follower of my blog!! Leave a comment letting me know you are a follower along with a way to contact you in case you are the winner!! For an EXTRA entry, head on over and 'LIKE' my Facebook Page, then make sure to leave ANOTHER comment letting me know you did so!
