Two Peas In A Bucket - Gardeners' Digest


Hey everybody!  Welcome to the August 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.


This week we are celebrating "Back To School" Two Peas In A Bucket style!  All of the projects released this past Monday have a school theme.  I created a fun layout celebrating Darian's first day of school last year.  You can see my school themed layout right 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 amazing layout by fellow Garden Girl Shannon Tidwell.  I absolutely LOVE what Shannon did with the stencil paper on this layout.



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 and I've been stocking up for a very special project I'm working on for Two Peas.  Here are five of my most recent purchases ...



Garden Girl Jen Gallacher just launched a brand new mini workshop called Words Unsaid.  Here's a description of Jen's new class ...

Memories fade quickly and making sure we include all our stories within our scrapbooks can seem daunting. In this Mini Workshop, Garden Girl Jen Gallacher shares her approach for meaningful journaling. Jen is a dedicated journal keeper and has kept personal journals for over 30 years (ever since she was old enough to write). Now she combines her love of record keeping with scrapbooking! This journaling-centered class covers topics from holidays, to day-to-day events, to family moments, and several often forgotten subjects.

Lessons include:

Chapter 1: Special Events
Chapter 2: Day-to-Day Living
Chapter 3: Stories to Remember

Each chapter includes 10 BRAND NEW layouts for a total of 30 layouts. An instructional video is provided for each chapter in which Jen discusses her philosophy on journaling each memory, as well as, her creative approach to journaling design. Each chapter video highlights the start-to-finish process of one of the chapter layouts. Watch Jen select the photos, journal her story, and complete a layout all under 30 minutes!

Beyond mere journaling, Jen discusses challenges to telling the story, creative methods for incorporating journaling on the page, and product suggestions for a fresh approach to journaling design. A helpful PDF is provided for each chapter and combines into a complete, comprehensive guide to meaningful journaling. Each layout is highlighted on its own page and includes the complete supply list, a close-up photo, and the approach to both documenting the story and the design of the journaling. Additional materials found within the PDF include topic ideas, journaling product ideas, and tips and tricks for journaling.

Whether you're an experienced writer looking to incorporate journaling into your scrapbooks, or you struggle with knowing what to say on your pages, this workshop's for you! Never leave "words unsaid" again!

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 of both Jen and to connect with other participants. Enjoy!
