Pebbles Inc. Happy Go Lucky

































{Reported by Paula Gilarde}









Was I excited when I opened the package to find the Happy Go Lucky from Pebbles Inc! It is a Spring line that the Pebbles crew tells us was inspired, in part, by the sweets found in a candy shop. It is full of bright, happy colors with easy, sunny patterns that will make you smile when you look at them. The paper patterns include all the current popular favorites of clouds, birds, polka dots along with other clean, graphic images. The Happy Go Lucky embellishments really kick this line up a notch in my estimation - the quality, the images, the details all really impressed me. The stickers aren't just flat stickers - they are embossed/debossed, as are the border stickers. The stickers themselves are also pretty thick and are very sticky. I also really liked the layered embellishments: available in both felt and chipboard versions.


What I liked:
1. Fun, whimsical patterns that weren't overly cutesy. I enjoy cutesy but they have to be usable. And these were.
2. As I mentioned before,.the stickers are wonderful - great designs and STICKY - I like my stickers to stick!
3. Great clean, graphic patterns in a wide variety of designs make the collection very versatile for different scrapping uses. If you are into graphic, you'll like these.

What I disliked:
This is a tough one. I liked everything about this line. Everything! One thing that I'd like to have is a smaller alpha - I think I'm used to using a little alpha for cards and to embellish titles.


What I made:
Just be card: I had a lot of fun whipping up cards using this line. I think the stickers (both border and otherwise) work really well for cards.

O happy day: I love the phrases that were included on the sticker sheet and used one as a title (adding my own touch with alpha stickers). The stickers are fun and whimsical - love the detail they add.

I like the cards you made with this line.
I'm almost never using stickers. I mostly make my own embellishments (diecutting), but for a quick card they will do.
I like the colours.
