We’re excited to finally announce our new Pebbles design team for the 2016-2017 term! We know these talented ladies are going to create some really incredible projects and can’t wait to see what they cook up. Read on to get to know them a little bit better!
I was born and raised in the Lone Star State and live in Cypress, Texas with my family – hubby, 2 daughters, 1 bonus son, and 2 rescue dogs. I lead marketing and thought leadership initiatives for a major tech company but my real passion is playing with paper, glue and scissors. I love to scrap the daily adventures of my family and I aim to capture the essence of the little details of whatever it is they are doing. My signature style includes lots of pattern mixing, matching, and layering in fun and interesting ways. I also design for Shimelle.com and Gossamer Blue.
Favorite snack: Butterfinger peanut butter cups but I’ve sworn off processed and added sugar so watermelon it is!
Favorite type of craft: Scrapbooking, sewing and anything I can do with or teach my girls
Favorite hobby (besides crafting): Home renovations / decorating
My name is Monique Liedtke and I live in The Netherlands together with my husband of almost 20 years and 3 wonderful kids: 1 daughter (19) and 2 sons (17 and 11). I work part-time (15 hours a week) in an HR office 5 minutes cycling from home. I’ve always had many hobbies and until I found scrapbooking reading took up most of my free time. Beside reading I love traveling, walking, aqua jogging, line dancing, the cinema, watching detectives, knitting… I’ve been scrapping for about 12 years now and can’t imagine life without it; I scrapbook every day of the week. Sometimes it’s only printing photos or cutting out cut files and sometimes I spend hours creating pages or other projects. Creating scrapbook pages is what I love to do most, but I also love to make cards, mini albums, decorate planners etc. My projects are always full of color and details. My favorite techniques are sewing on my projects, both with the sewing machine and by hand and also using lots of layers and (digital) cut files. I’m so excited to be on the new Pebbles team! It’s a dream come true.
Favorite snack: marzipan! You can wake me up in the middle of the night for this!
Favorite type of craft: Creating scrapbook layouts.
Favorite hobby (besides crafting): Reading. I love reading a lot of genres, just as long as it’s fiction.
Hello, Hello! I’m Renee Zwirek. I live in Aurora, Illinois with my husband, Chris, and our sweet girls, Caitie and Payton. I love scrapbooking and photography. It’s so much fun, creative, and keeps me sane. I’ve been scrapbooking for more than 11 years. I love creating layouts of my girls and cards for my family. When I’m not paper crafting, I enjoy spending time with my family, snacking on Gardetto’s, and watching AMC’s The Walking Dead. I’m so excited and look forward to my 5th year with the Pebbles family!
Because I’ve been a member of the Pebbles family for a while now, I thought it would be fun to share a few random things about me: I love a clean house, a good book, and a really great cup of hot chocolate (in the winter) or a glass of raspberry lemonade (in the summer). I also love a great find in a thrift store. My most favorite things to look for are books and dishes…a girl can never have too many dishes, or books.
My husband (Justin) spoils me rotten and is my greatest supporter. Together we have 3 kids, Cole, Kayleigh and Austin. All of our kids will go to school for the whole day for the first time in our married lives. It’s a new chapter of our lives with me working at home and all the kids gone all day. I’m excited and a little bit nervous about the long quiet days.
I have been a passionate memory keeper since I was young. This past year I have made scrapbooking/paper crafting my full-time job. I have had the opportunity to work with many amazing companies and have made lifelong friends through this amazing hobby. I am so happy to be working with Pebbles for another year. There are amazing things to come this year with this awesome team, I am so thrilled to be a part of it. I truly love my job!!!
Favorite snack: Chocolate, anything chocolate (except brownies, weird, I know)
Favorite type of craft: I am a traditional scrapbooker at heart. Creating layouts and mini albums makes my heart sing.
Favorite hobby (besides crafting): I love to read, I’m a bookworm! I also love to work on unique home decor projects. I love home decor that is unique and my own!
Hi everyone! My name is Leanne and I live in sunny Queensland, Australia! I am a busy mum of four children – 1 daughter and three sons! My husband and I are actively involved in our boys’ field hockey club and our daughter’s dance life! These guys and their passions are what I love to document as our family historian.. aka scrapbooker!! I create 8.5×11 scrapbook pages and love the challenge this smaller size offers. My style is often described as clustered elements in white space and I love fresh combinations of colour.
