Pebbles Home+Made Layout with Custom Background Tutorial

Hello!  How are you?  Today I have a layout to share which was featured on the Pebbles blog a couple weeks ago where I took inspiration from a specific sketch to create my own custom backgrounds using Pebbles newest Home+made collection!

I started with this Sketchy Thursdays sketch which I found on Pinterest.  To re-create the diamond background in the design I turned to my Silhouette software and the diamond nested and 12x12 background shapes.    I chose to follow the sketch pretty closely and embellished with all the fun new thickers, tapes and dies from the collection.

The sticker surface of the label was a little slick and it smeared with my first attempt so I cheated and printed my words on white cardstock which I cut down to perfectly fit inside the label.  ;)

I think the touches of black and gold in this line are so elegant and will be beautiful for so many occasions!
