Two Peas In A Bucket - Gardeners' Digest


Hey everybody!  Welcome to the May 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.

So I have to admit that I don't actually have any new projects in the works at this moment.  But I did just recently share a new project that went up in the Garden yesterday.  You can see my travel themed layout right here on my blog or here in the Garden.  Here's a peek at my layout ...


Browsing the gallery at Two Peas is one of my favorite things to do when I'm looking for inspiration.  I fell in love with this layout by fellow Garden Girl Wendy Sue Anderson.  I love how Wendy arranged her stunning photos in a grid design and the embellishments and extra touches are just fantastic!




Next I'd like to share a few recent purchases I've made from the shop at Two Peas.  Lots of new products have arrived recently.  Here are five of my most recent purchases ...
  •  9 to 5 Collection (I've been waiting for this collection to hit the shop and I think I loaded up my cart and hit submit in less than 2 minutes!  LOL)

  • Summer Fresh Collection (This collection has everything I love about summer all wrapped up in one pretty package - I cannot wait to use these goodies!)

  • Sweet Day Collection (I love this new collection by Echo Park.  My favorite paper has to be this hexagon print - just fabulous!)
 
  • Mistable Stickers (There are several mistable Thicker Stickers available from Studio Calico that are exclusive to Two Peas.  These weather icons are my favorites!)


Garden Girl Amy Heller just launched a brand new workshop called Through the Kaleidoscope with: Making Sense of Color 4 Scrapbooking. I was lucky enough to contribute a layout to this workshop along with several other fabulous guest designers.

Here's a description of Amy's new class ...


 Do you wish you could add more color to your scrapbooking projects? Have you ever wondered how to mix manufacturers' products and collections with ease? And lets talk about all those products you've been hoarding in your stash, ever wish you could learn to use more of those in your projects? Join Garden Girl Amy Heller as she teaches a color theory based workshop, 'Through the Kaleidoscope | Making Sense of Color 4 Scrapbooking' based on the principles of the color wheel.

As a graphic designer and former creative and art director by trade, Amy's experience in color has spanned not only from the crafting world, but over 10 years professional experience in the design of advertising, brand development and packaging. Over five chapters, she'll share 50 brand new scrapbook pages by her and her group of contributors. Each chapter contains a printable PDF containing beautiful color inspiration boards from daily life as well as from scrapbooking supplies for each of the principles and colors covered, as well as a coordinating video. Included is a handy, portable flip card set with each of the color theories covered as well as the full color wheel for taking to your next crop or simply having in your craft area for easy and convenient color reference.

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 Amy and to connect with other participants. Enjoy! Cost of workshop: $25 Buy now!
