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.
here on my blog or here in the Garden. Here's a peek at my layout ...
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!)
- Let Freedom Ring Dimensional Banners (These are currently sitting in my cart - I cannot WAIT to use these on my 4th of July layouts!)
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.
