Pebbles Inc. Sunnyside Collection


{Reported by Becky Williams}

I have long been a fan of Pebbles Inc. products and have quite a few of the collections in my scrappy stash so I was excited when the new Sunnyside Collection was revealed and even MORE thrilled when I found out that I would get to try it out for The Scrap Review.  I love to use bright and fun colors and patterns when I scrap and these surely fit the bill! 

  




  



What I liked:
-LOVE the variety of colors and patterns in this collection
- tear strips at bottom of pages are great embellishments for scrapbooking projects
-size and stickiness of corrugated alphabets
-"From Me to You" patterned paper is perfect for making cards and for adding little accents to projects without the extra bulk
-while there are lots of girl-themed products (flowers, butterflies and pink, for example) there are also other patterns that can be used for boys as well. 

What I disliked: 
(I loved the collection and hate to be picky about things but since that's our job here I had to find something)
- the orange striped paper isn't included in the 6x6 pad (a small thing, I know)
- the small alphas weren't cut all the way so they tore a bit as I took them from the backing sheet. I am sure that this was probably just a manufacturing defect in my package and perhaps a few others and not the product as a whole.
-it was hard at first to get a clean image when using the stamps. When I changed to a different style of block (rocking block) to mount the stamps I had better results. You have to make sure to have even pressure over the entire image of the stamp. 

What I made:


For this card I used some of the tag shapes from the "From Me To You" patterned paper. 
This has great little embellishments and journal spots for cards and layouts.


And here I used the cute little stamps



To make the round embellishment I simply cut out the "You make me smile" tag from the "From Me to You" piece of paper and ran it through my Sizzix machine with a pinked circle die from Lifestyle Crafts. 


I used the 6x6 paper pad for this page. The smaller scale of the patterns is wonderful for card makers and also for scrapbook pages and other projects.

The stamp set being a little difficult to use with certain blocks is good to know, since I was debating on getting them. Thanks for the review on the whole collection!

I love how happy this collection is! I find for stamps if I use my file and sand them just a bit it helps with the uneven issues even w/clear ones. I can see some fun projects in my head with this collection Thanks for the chance.

I've been wanting to see a thorough review of this product and I am happy to see yours! I love the diversity of the collection and of course, the colors! Thanks for the fun!

The colors are so cute. Really like this collection.

Angela said...

Overall this collection is one of my favorites! I too like bright happy colors! That stinks about the stickers not coming off the page great, but hopefully it was just a oops. I have had that happen before and it is frustrating! Loved your cards and your pages! My fav is the 12 mo. one! So adorable!

Love, love, love this new collection. Love the colors and the patterns. It's interesting because I think this is the second review from you guys where the stamps that came with more of a paper manufacturer's collection wasn't the greatest. Wondering if the paper companies should just stick to the papers and regular embellies and not add stamps? Or team up with a stamp company, like some do with Unity.

This collection has certainly caught my eye as well and I love what you created with it Becky!!!

Amy said...

Oh! Thanks for the tip about using a rocker block! I ordered this set almost as soon as it came out and when the stamps came, the acrylic was terribly uneven (think valleys in the banner part) and the ink transfer was so patchy. I'll have to give a new block a try!

April said...

I definitely love the papers. The colors and patterns are just right up my alley.

Great features using the collection and thanks for the honest review.

janet said...

AWESOME REVIEW!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love hearing it all- the good and the not-so-good. I have the same trouble with all my AC stamps. Doesn't mean I don't love them- they are just more difficult to use.

Your projects are GREAT and this line is GORGEOUS. Can't wait to see in IRL!

Cynthia B. said...

At first glance, I do like the colors and patterns of this line, but I wouldn't buy all of it because I have both a boy and a girl, and and I try to buy collections which I can use for both my kids. That said, I love the samples from Becky! They're not too "girly", and I appreciate the comment that there are parts of the line that are boy-friendly too. Pebbles always has good quality paper (although I honestly haven't tried their stamps!), so thanks for the review to help me make a buying decision!

Tricia said...

I love the colors in this collection so bright and fun! I love the projects you've created with it!

I actually really love the colors and the vibrancy of what I can see of them. I like your tip that the 6x6 pad is great as the patterns are on a smaller scale. I will definitely use that in the future as I do run into not liking that the patterns of my 12x12 pages are too large for what I envision. Thanks!
