Our final Winter Design Team member is Lisa Spiegel! Lisa got to work with one of my favorites, today’s steal, the Pebbles Seen & Noted Collection. I just love the warm color combination and simple patterns in this collection. From red, turquoise, yellow and gray, to dots, stripes, flowers and speech bubbles – this collection has it all! Complete with library cards and pockets, journal cards, cardstock stickers and chipboard, this fun collection is perfect for any papercrafting project.

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Pebbles “Seen and Noted” collection for my Scrapbook Steals collection this month!  I just love the bright colors with grey…such a current and fun twist on colors!  I created this layout using the stickers, the journaling dards, the paper, and an envelope.  I added some stitching and misting and my Cameo for the heart cut and I just love how it turned out!  I also love that I can hide my journaling in the cute envelope!

Next, I altered a new day planner for myself.  With a new year, it was time to get my new calendar and make it CUTE!  I found this one in the Dollar Section of my local Target:

But sadly, it’s not cute…so I took some time to break out the craft supplies to cutify it! (We have to have cute planners, right?)  The Pebbles Seen and Noted Collection days of the week paper and bright colors are perfect for my calendar.  They are super easy to do:

Step 1. Take your planner out of the plastic cover and measure it.

Step 2. Trim the first piece of paper the height of the planner.  Lay it down, the side you want to show down and lay the planner on top, lining up the right edge with the right edge of the planner, then wrap the paper to the front and gently fold it. Adhere it to the cover of the planner using a glue stick.

Step 3. Trim a second piece of paper to be 1/2 an inch wider than the spot you will cover and adhere it under the first piece of paper and to the cover of the planner.

Step 4. Cover the seam of the two papers with a decorative trim.  I used the UPC trim from another piece of paper from the collection…love that Pebbles made one side of them completely usable!  Glue it down.

Step 5. Now it’s time to embellish!  I chose to use this cute journaling card, a doily, a punch from the backside of the floral paper, a chipboard speech bubble and numbers to create this for the cover.  I cut the word “everyday” from my Silhouette Cameo and black cardstock.  It is nice to keep the embellishments flat for your planner.  Since you will be writing in it, bumpy embellishments won’t work well…layers of flat things work best!

Step 6. Place your planner back in the cover and add a binder clip to mark your place!  Then step back and admire your handiwork!!

And there you have it!  Your planner is now CUTE!
Next up, I created this layout of my oldest daughter. This time I created banners (by hand) and some leaves (with my Cameo)..I used some of the Pebbles stickers, too. I really love this line..even though it’s highly patterned, the graphic designs allow the photos to shine!

Lastly, I also created this cute little pop up Gift Card holder..

I used a Cameo cut for it…and popped a cute little journaling card with bling inside to personalize it.  I added Basic Grey magnets to keep it closed…and when the recipient opens it, the whole things slides up and out!  SO CUTE.

I had a great time working with this great collection…it’s so much fun!  Don’t miss out on this steal…it’s just fantastic!!
