cha winter 2012 | pebbles

I didn't make it by the Pebbles booth at the summer CHA show, so I made it a point to visit them at CHA Winter 2012.

Their booth was completely gorgeous- I'm seriously in love with their new paper lines. I admit that Pebbles isn't a company that I've really ordered a lot from in the past, but I'm for sure going to be purchasing quite a bit from these new collections!

Country Picnic is a beautiful mix of pinks, greens, and krafts. Yes, you read that right, I, Melissa Stinson, THE Scrappy Jedi With An Aversion To Pink, am in love with this line. :)

Pebbles went with a mix of plain stickers for this line instead of including Thickers.

Isn't that kraft print lovely? Color prints on kraft are becoming one of my favorite things- such a great diversion from the same old cream-or-white-based prints.

These layered tags caught my eye, too. I saw several examples of layered tags at the show, but Pebbles included a bit of dimension on theirs to make them that much more special.

Let Freedom Ring won't be available until April, but I'm already planning to buy the lot of it. I seriously, seriously love patriotic paper lines, and of course the red and blue print on kraft cinched this one for me.

And there are Thickers to boot!

Could these little bunting rosettes be any more perfect? ::sigh::

Hip Hip Hooray is Pebbles' third release, and I love the festive party color scheme. With its mix of both blues and pinks it's usable for either girl or boy birthday pages, and it could work for any number of other themes as well.

This collection includes some seriously cute embellishments such as pinwheels, clothespins, and sequins.

On the staple side of things, Pebbles is expanding their Candy Dots line with a sparkly new Crystal variety.

The Pebbles team did an outstanding job with their booth projects- everything was just beautiful!

As I mentioned earlier, Let Freedom Ring won't be available for preorder until closer to its April release, but Stop and Scrap is taking preorders now for both Country Picnic and Hip Hip Hooray. You can save 12% off their already-discounted prices by using coupon code SCRAPPYJEDI.

Tomorrow I'll take you on a tour of the October Afternoon booth, and perhaps another (yet to be determined) manufacturer if I have time for two posts!
