Two Peas In A Bucket - Gardeners' Digest


Hey everybody!  Welcome to the February edition of the Gardeners' Digest.  The Garderners' Digest is simply a monthly update from the Garden Girls, the design team at Two Peas In A Bucket.  It's a place for us to share what we're currently working on, inspired by, using in our projects, etc.  A little diary of sorts for you to keep up with all of us on our personal blogs as well as over at Two Peas In A Bucket.


First, I wanted to share with you a little sneak peek of one of my Garden projects for the month of March.  This layout is just in the beginning stages so I can only show a tiny bit for now.  I'm using lots of the new American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection on this layout along with some of the Paper Heart collection from Crate Paper.  Definitely a softer color palette than I'm used to using, but I really love it.


I am so lucky to be on a team with such talented women.  I was completely inspired by this recent layout from fellow Garden Girl Wilna Furstenberg.  It is absolutely nothing like my style, but I think that's why it inspires me so much.  I love how colorful and free this design is, and how Wilna gathered her inspiration from other places.


Next I'd like to share a few recent purchases I've made from the shop at Two Peas.  With all of the new releases from CHA Winter the Two Peas shop has been hopping with new products arriving weekly.  And so has my wallet!  LOL!  So here are my five most recent purchases ...


  • Prima Typography Alpha Stickers (I am such a sucker for a good alpha sticker and the font, size, and variety of colors of these from Prima are just perfect.  These stickers are available in 6 different combinations for a total of 12 different colors.  And, yes, I did purchase all six.  LOL!) 


  • Elle's Studio Die Cuts (I have added a BUNCH of these fabulous die cuts to my stash - they are perfect for adding journaling and bits of detail to your layouts)


In other scrappy news,  Two Peas In A Bucket is launching a new series of paid workshops on their website.  The first workshop in the series is with the uber talented Shimelle Laine and is called "The Hitchiker's Guide to Scrapbooking."  Here are the details ...

Are you drowning in a sea of scrapbook supplies and a plethora of photos, but wish things just came together easily? Then "The Hitchhiker's Guide to Scrapbooking" is just what you need: your guide to life, the universe and pretty paper! Join Garden Girl Shimelle Laine for this self-paced workshop you can use any time. Over five chapters, she'll share forty-two brand new scrapbook pages and easy-to-follow advice on choosing supplies, designing pages, embellishing your work and writing your memories. Each chapter includes a printable PDF and coordinating video, plus the guide's bonus reference section includes sketches, supply lists and other handy hints. Designed for scrapping at home or at a crop, "The Hitchhiker's Guide to Scrapbooking" reminds you: Don't Panic - get crafting!

The content of this workshop will be available immediately upon purchase. The lessons are available for you to work at your own pace and upon purchase can be accessed in the Workshops section under Classes & Events. A private message board forum is also available to ask questions for Shimelle and to connect with other participants. Enjoy!


To sign up for what is sure to be an inspiring class simply click here or click the image below.


And now for the GIVEAWAY! To be entered into a giveaway to win a spot in Shimelle's class simply leave a comment on this blog post.  Be sure to include your Two Peas username so I know how to contact you if you're won!  If you're the lucky winner and you've already purchased the class - no problem!  You will be given the option to either be refunded your money or pass the free spot along to a friend!  This giveaway will be open until Satruday 2/25 at midnight EST.  I will post the winner on Sunday 2/26 right here on my blog.  One entry per person please.  Good luck!
