Do It Yourself Page Pebbles

These BEAUTIFUL Prima Pebbles are included in the Scraps of Darkness inspiration kit.


They are not too hard to recreate either! 

These are thin and "scrapbook" friendly...http://andreawalford.com/stampin-up-tutorial-tuesday-faux-page-pebbles

These are thin as well (minus the magnet on the back)... http://www.deepfriedkudzu.com/2007/06/page-pebble-refrigerator-magnets.html

These are a bit more dimensional (maybe better used on altered projects, as they will not lay very flat on a scrapbook page)...  http://mapleandmagnolia.com/2010/11/26/thrifty-gifty-idea/

Here are some of the page pebbles Bethany made from the 2nd tutorial.  She used patterned paper, a dictionary, graph paper, sheet music, and old Making Memory's Clear Self Adhesive Page Pebbles (remember those???).  When I add them to my project, I will also add some bling around the outside of each one.



Bonus Tutorial:

Another one of our fellow counterfeiters put up 2 great tutorials on her blog as well.  On her blog, Deb's Eclectic Thoughts, Debbie posted a GREAT tutorial for the black Theresa Collins' Blingage as well as another option for mirrored embellishments!  They are both great tutorials!  Thanks, Debbie!

  2. Thanks for the awesome links! I made some of the more dimensional pebbles for my kit, using glass "pebbles" and paper glaze. They turned out really well, and were so easy!

  6. I love this! I used some round stickers in my kit and Diamond Glaze to make mine. I used one for the center to my mini tag book I made with my kit!
