Hi Pebbles Friends!
Amanda here, & today I have a super sweet Fall themed layout to share! Created with our new Spooky Boo line, the warm tones and pretty plaids are sure to win your heart!
Here’s my layout….
Isn’t this Halloween line just perfect for Fall memory keeping?! I was totally inspired by the Falling Leaves paper, as well as the plaid patterns, and my own memories of quilting and sewing in the cooler months. I love that this fun geometric heart design has a cut file appearance, but is actually created from hand cutting!
Here’s how to recreate it….
Start by preparing the layout base. I select pattern paper Falling Leaves , and layer it with an 11″ x 11″ white cardstock background.
Next, select your Spooky Boo pattern papers, and then trim at least five 3″x 3″ squares. I chose papers Meow, Hocus Pocus, Hey Pumpkin & Falling Leaves for my layout.
Trim each 3 inch square into equal triangle quarters by cutting diagonally.
Take the triangles and arrange them into a geometric heart design. Play around with the patterns & design, and once happy glue into place.
Prepare your photograph. I use a layer of vintage book paper, and those super cute pumpkins from the Printed Cardstock Shapes pack. These pumpkins are actually Jack-o-Lanterns with spooky faces, so I strategically covered them with the sentiment and blooms. Perfect!
Adhere your photograph to the geometric heart.
Embellish around the photo with more Printed Cardstock Shapes, as well as that gorgeous Wood Sticker from the Jen Hadfield Patio Party collection. The inclusion of the wooden embellishment really adds to the warm, outdoorsy, Fall feel of the layout.
Add the layout title and subtitle, with the Patio Party Thickers. Again, the wooden appearance really emphasises the Fall look.
I even add a few of the laurel leaves from the Patio Party Thickers into my photo cluster.
So simple, and yet, oh so beauti-Fall!
In keeping with the quilted look, I also embellish with buttons and sequins from my sewing box. Cute!
I add the gold stars from the Printed Cardstock Shapes pack, as well as a few tiny butterflies which I fussy cut from the barcode trim on the bottom of the Falling Leaves pattern paper.
For final touches, I use my WeRMemoryKeepers Typewriter to add a little journaling beneath my photograph.
Voila! A lovely seasonal page that’s super easy to recreate! Love it!
I hope I have inspired you to get creating with our beautiful products!
Thanks so much for visiting,

Hello Pebbles’ fans! It’s Eva on the blog today bringing you a card set inspired by the plaid patterns on our new Halloween line: Spooky Boo!
This new collection is a Halloween themed line but has a variety of designs that can be used for fall or everyday pages. I got my inspiration by the plaid patterns on this line and decided to create a card set combining black, white, orange and green.
I started by trimming some papers and added a green one from the My Bright Life collection, that matched exactly the green on the Spooky Book line.
I created my own plaid pattern by weaving the strips of paper.
I cut the excess and placed my plaid background on top of a card using 3d foam dots.
Next, I used some of the glittered thickers to add a sentiment and also added a word made with my Word Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers.
Because the background was so busy I decided to keep the card really simple and I think it looks lovely!
I also created two more cards using the plaid patterns of the Spook Boo collection. On this one, I cut some flowers from one of the patterned papers and used a sentiment from the My Bright Life in the middle.
On this card, I also used a tag from the My Bright Life collection and some cut out flowers and pumpkins.
And here’s my set of cards! They were really simple and I think the plaid pattern is perfect for fall! Thanks for joining me and have a great day!

Hi Pebbles Friends!
It’s Amanda, & today I am sharing a super sweet Halloween decor item that makes for a spook-tacular gift!
I LOVE Halloween, and the new Spooky Boo collection is just perfect for Halloween cards, decor & memory keeping!
Here’s the gift I’m sharing today…..
Trick or Treat!!!
How fun is this?!!
Not everyone in my neighborhood celebrates this holiday, so to let Trick Or Treaters know if it’s ok to visit, we all hang a wreath, banner or decorative item on our front doors. I thought this cute door hanger would be a perfect gift for our new neighbors across the street. I hope they like it!
Here’s how to make one of your own….
Start by trimming a sheet of chipboard into a 5″ wide triangle with an 8″ point. Cover both sides with your fave papers from the Spooky Boo collection. I chose the reverse side of HOCUS POCUS for the front side, and SWEET TOOTH for the back. Use your We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile, or similar tool, to punch holes in the top corners of the triangle.
To add that ‘Halloween’ feel, (& hide those ugly chipboard edges) apply METALLIC CREAM CHALK in black to the edges of the triangle.
Insert burlap ribbon into the holes, tying it off with knots to create the ‘handle’. I use burlap as it’s quite sturdy and won’t perish easily! Use 1″wide black ribbon to create the fancy concertina trim at the top of the triangle.
Kinda looks like a carrot as this stage, but once we start embellishing the triangle you’ll barely see that orange base!
Embellish with faux spiders web (stretched cotton wool), and one of the smaller WALL BATS in the center of the triangle.
Next, foam mount PRINTED CARDSTOCK SHAPES on top of one another to create a focal point. I love the framed witch silhouette supported by the little bat ephemera, but there are tons of options in the PRINTED CARDSTOCK SHAPES pack to choose from!
Here’s a closer look for you…..
Lookin’ boo-tiful already! But it really needs more…….
For my gift, the ‘Trick Or Treat’ sentiment is a perfect adornment to the top of my decorative door hanger, but again many of the PRINTED CARDSTOCK SHAPES or 6″ x 12″ ACCENT STICKERS would work for personalizing your decor!
I also tuck a few PRINTED CARDSTOCK SHAPES into the top of the focal point. Now it’s starting to look super spooky!!!
Add more ribbon & trim to the ‘handle’, as well as a length of ribbon at the triangle point. Adorn the ribbon with more cobwebs, and for finishing touches attach those fabulously freaky WALL SPIDERS.
Witches, spiders, bats, & pumpkins – totally CREEPIN IT REAL!!!
Here’s how it looks hanging on the door…..
A spook-tacular Halloween gift that really does say Boo!
I hope I have inspired you to get started on your Halloween crafts with the new Spooky Boo collection today!

Hello Pebbles’ fans! It’s Eva Pizarro on the blog today bringing you step by step instructions to create a layout using only patterned paper.
Here in Chile, it’s not easy to find scrapbook supplies and they are very expensive so I thought it would be fun to show you how to create a layout using only the beautiful papers from the My Bright Life collection. These patterns are gorgeous and have many designs that you can cut and create your own die cuts.
I started by cutting 5/8 inch strips of 3 different patterned papers with my Trim and Score. The floral one is my favorite!
Next, I used my precision scissors to cut some designs from different 12×12 papers. You can cut the 3×4 cards or cut a few designs from papers also!
I placed my strips of paper on a triangle shape, creating a diamond in the center of the page.
To create my subtitle I used my Word Punch Board and used the negative letters. This punch board is super fun!
To add more dimension to the paper designs I used 3d dots, you could also bend the strips a bit!
Have you tried making a layout using only patterned paper? I think it is a great exercise! And with Pebbles’ lovely patterns you can’t go wrong!
Thanks for joining me and have a great day!
