Hi Pebbles friends! I’ve been around for a while, but many of you haven’t…so first of all – WELCOME! I’m Wendy Sue and I am a tried and true Pebbles fan! I love creating cards, layouts, and all things paper with the fun and beautiful designs created by the talented team at Pebbles! I thought I’d share a few tidbits about myself, along with a layout I created recently.
The most important part of my life…my whole life…are the people in this photo! My family. My husband. Three sons. One daughter. And one son-in-law.
We live in a high mountain valley in Utah. It’s the beginning of June and there’s still snow – just a hop, skip, and a jump away!! We love it here. We enjoy all things outdoors – hiking, biking, walking, swimming, boating – all the things!!
When I’m not outside, you can usually find me creating something fun with paper. Or reading a good book. Or baking my favorite cookies.
My degree (and my day job) is in accounting…so I’m pretty much working with paper in one way or another all the time. I also enjoy teaching people how to make beautiful projects, document their memories, and create cards to share with special people! Here’s a quick little tutorial for the subtle little shaker box at the bottom of my layout (did you see it?).
Start by stitching two vellum “pockets” onto patterned paper. I trimmed this fun polkadot paper to 11″ x 11″ and added two pieces of vellum – one to the top and one to the bottom – the middle will be covered by the photo and coordinating paper later.
Make sure to leave the top part of the bottom piece open (stitch the left, bottom, and right edges only)
You can find some confetti, or use one of the puffy stickers from the collection (if you don’t think you’ll use it otherwise).
Cut open the sticker.
Pour in the confetti.
Now stitch along the top to close the shaker! And finish building the layout on top of it.
Thanks so much for stopping by today – I hope you’re inspired to try something new. Come back soon!!
