American Crafts announced on their blog today their purchase of Pebbles. Here is what they had to say:
"WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re excited to announce the acquisition of Pebbles, an amazing scrapbooking brand that weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re certain will be a great compliment to the American Crafts product lines. Pebbles will remain a separate brand under the American Crafts umbrella. We will continue to offer their current products and plan to introduce new products over time. And the core of Pebbles design team will join us to ensure a continuation of their fun, fresh style.
Pebbles was created in 2001 as an extension of the Pebbles in my Pocket retail stores that are located in Utah. They make simple, cute, and easy-to-use products, including patterned paper, craft chalk and stencils, decorative Chips chipboard shapes, self-adhesive Candy Dots, themed die cuts, ribbon and more.
WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re so excited to welcome the Pebbles brand! If you arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t familiar with them, check out their products featured on their web site. And make sure to visit their blogfor regular ideas, inspiration, challenges and giveaways."
I don't know enough about this to do any fun speculating or draw any conclusions, but if you have any thoughts, they are certainly welcome!
