This is the layout I created using the Pebbles Basics collection. This collection is just that, a group of basic paper crafting supplies that are perfect for scrapbook layouts, cards and other paper crafting projects. I love the bright, bold colors and patterns that are used throughout this collection.


TIPS | Making the Most of Your Scrapbooking Supplies
I several fun and simple tips to share regarding my layout that may help you stretch your scrapbooking supplies and think about using them in a different way than you would expect. To start, I created the mat for my photos on the left hand side using two sheets of from the Journaling Basics Cards Pad. I overlapped them, matched the patterns and then trimmed them to size.  The two scalloped border strips at the top right and bottom left of the layout are from the strip along the top edge of the yellow patterned paper. I cut it in half and used it as a fun accent and place to position my flower embellishments. I hate to waste pretty paper!

Another tip I have to share is that I used one of the Basics Library Pockets to hide my journaling behind one of my photos. I attached the pocket behind the photo, leaving just a small edge of it peeking out from behind the photo. To read the journaling, all you have to do is pull out the card.

The layered flowers were made using a FREE digital cut file that I designed. I cut the different layers from various colors of cardstock. Then I used American Crafts This To That Foam Tabs to layer them and create more dimension.  The centers of the flowers are extra dots from the American Crafts Honeycomb Glitter Thickers!
