Pebbles Inc. Home + Made

{Reported by Ashley Harris}

I am super excited to share with you the Jen Hadfield Home + Made collection by Pebbles, Inc. today!! Not sure about you, but I have followed Jen's fabulous blog TaterTots & Jello for quite some time.  It's lovely.   Her style is fantastic and so I am a big fan.   However, does it come across in this collection?  Let's find out!

What I liked:

- The colors in this collection are absolutely fabulous!  I love them.   They are right on trend and give  you a homey feel.
- The patterns are great!  There is both geometric and floral.  A very good mix.
-The variety of dies is good.  There are butterflies, banner pieces, scalloped border and more!

What I didn't like:

- I can honestly say that I don't dislike a thing.  I was a little leery of the dies because they aren't of the best quality, but no issues.   They cut the first go through.  The only time it didn't is if it was cutting a thicker material like the gold foil paper.  Just go through a couple of times with a shim under the die and you're golden.

What I made:

Supplies:  Enamel dots:  My Mind's Eye; Vellum and Cardstock:  Bazzill Basics; Sequins: Misc;  All other product Pebbles, Inc. Home + Made

Supplies:  Twine:  May Arts:  All other products:  Pebbles, Inc.  Home + Made

Supplies:  Enamel Dots:  My Mind's Eye:  All other products Pebbles, Inc. Home + Made

Bottom Line:

An explanation and a winner!!

Okay so I owe you all an explanation.  I have purposely neglected this site for the last few months.  I have really needed to put things into perspective for myself and for my family.  Thoughts of shutting The Scrap Review down have been in my mind for some time.  So I took a break.   After much thought, consideration and prayer, I have decided to move forward with The Scrap Review.   I want to breath new life into the site.  It will take some time and effort, so please be a little more patient with me.  I love you all and your dedication to the site and I don't want to let you down.  With that being said, be excited for new things are coming up for the site!!  YAY!!

Now for the winner of the Waffle Flower giveaway.
