Hi Pebbles fans! I am honored to be guest designing for Pebbles this month. My name is Suzanna and I have two layouts to share with you today, one for Mother’s Day and the other for everyday. Both were created using the bright and festive Patio Party collection! This collection from Jen Hadfield is just stunning with the bright colors and bits of gold scattered through out!
This first layout is fitting for the holiday happening this weekend, Mothers Day! This layout uses a digital cut file from the Silhouette store which becomes the decorative center piece of the layout. Flowers from the collection, both dimensional and stickers, add color to the circular wreath while the creased flowers and layering add dimension and movement.
I like to be able to use the alphas/Thickers that accompany collections but am inclined to make my titles less generic, per se. I used “Happy Day” phrase and just inserted Mothers to make the title fitting to the layout. The letters for “Mother” were cut using a Big Kick but you could also use a digital cutting machine or letter stickers.
The brown and white strip at the top of the layout just grounds the layout and provides a bit more visual interest to the page.
Should you be of the process video inclination, you can see this layout come together here;
This second layout uses some of the left-over leaves from the first. I was inspired by a graphic design I saw on Pinterest but can no longer find. It too had “summer” going down the page as I have with foliage in amongst the letters.
The word “summer” was cut using my Silhouette in two different patterned papers from the 12×12 pad then overlapped slightly to give a shadow effect. Some of the letters are popped up on pop dots to provide some depth to the layout.
I could have used fussy cut flowers from one of the patterned papers, however, I really only wanted yellow flowers. I then used a multi-layer stamp set for the larger flowers that are interspersed among the letters. Stickers from the collection are scattered amongst the letters to create a garden scene.
One of the lovely golden puffy stickers completes the title for “Hello Summer”.
Early next week, this process video will be available for viewing on my personal YouTube channel.
