The Pebbles Story…
The Pebbles in my Pocket story began in 1992. Brenda Birrell was a “work at home” Mom watching over her children and loving it. Some of her happiest days were spent combining her love of journaling with her love of photography. Brenda with the support of her husband, Larry, decided to open a scrapbook business that she hoped would inspire others to begin this fulfilling hobby and “life work”.

Brenda began her venture with a hand drawn mail order catalogue and shipped product out of her home. The business quickly outgrew her home and was moved to several locations before settling into the current location in Orem, Utah in 1994. Our stores in Salt Lake City and St. George, Utah soon followed. We’ve also added a web site
A few years later in 1998, Pebbles in my Pocket entered into an alliance with EK Success and created many successful product lines: Paperkin Paper Dolls, Stickerkin Stickers, ABC Tracers and Punches, Tracerkin Stencils and Punches, Overalls and more. We loved being able to share our creativity with so many fellow scrapbookers on such a large scale and will be forever grateful for this experience and the friendships that we made.
In 2001, Brenda took another leap of faith...and opened Pebbles Inc. which put us officially on our own in the manufacturing business! It was an exciting time as we created our first products under the name Pebbles Inc.
The Pebbles in my Pocket name was inspired by Brenda and Larry’s five daughters: Ashlee, Lindsey, Katie, Kelsie and Abby. Everywhere their children went, they would gather pebbles, seashells and such. They would stuff them in their pockets and empty them when they came home. From time to time they would remember these treasures they found along the way. Memories are just like these pebbles and are gathered throughout our lives. Happy times, sad times, frustrations, joys and dreams . . . everything that makes us who we are. What a gift it is to gather our memories and pass them on to loved ones!

{ Tips or Ideas for Scrap booking from Pebbles in My Pocket }

Share & Tell album: Card making is quick and easy with Creative Pads. Journaling Cards—also make really cute recipe cards.

Keep it simple. The purpose of scrap booking is to express yourself and to remember the moments in you life. Don’t overwhelm yourself by comparing yourself to other styles.

  • Die cuts are cute and inexpensive ways to accentuate your pages.

  • Corner rounders are a great initial scrapbook investment. They can change the look of a page by rounding some or all the edges of your photos or printed paper.

  • Look for double sided sheets of patterned cardstock. It’s the quickest and easiest way to find a coordinating color for your project.

  • Companies come out with product lines that coordinate their paper with embellishments. This is the fastest and easiest way to put together a color coordinating page is to go by company rather than just color.

  • Write down or take pictures of journaling and/ or page layouts that you like so you can look at them later for inspiration. (That’s why Pebbles lets anyone come in and take pictures of our ideas.)

  • Do your journaling at the same time as your page, that way you won’t forget the details (and you’ll be more likely to actually do it!)
