Two Peas In A Bucket - Gardeners' Digest


Hey everybody!  Welcome to the January 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 want to share with you a little peek of a project in the Garden very soon.  Our next monthly theme in the garden is "Valentines" so I created a layout about my hubby and I using lots of fun new Valentine product from the Two Peas shop.  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.  Keeping with the Valentine theme, I spotted these cute coupon envelopes created by Shellye McDaniel.  Aren't they darling?



Next, I'd like to share a few recent purchases I've made from the shop at Two Peas.  There's been lots of new products arriving to the shop at Two Peas and I just couldn't resist buying some new goodies.  So here are some of my most recent purchases ...
  • Mini Paper Clips by Tim Holtz (I am obsessed with these little clips and was so happy to see them back in stock in the shop - best part is they are currently 25% off!)

Garden Girl Julie Campbell has just launched a brand new mini workshop called Journey Into Card Making.  Here's a description of Julie's new class ...


Whether you’re a seasoned card maker or have yet to make your first card, this workshop will take you on a journey to create handmade cards that your friends & loved ones will cherish.

Julie will start out by teaching you card making basics; you will create a card organizer to file away all the new cards you'll be designing! You'll then travel on to gain greater design skills. You’ll dive into design principles and learn how to create an eye pleasing design. You’ll learn all about composition & balance in a way that will take your cards from good to great!

Become adventurous and explore some of the hottest trends in paper crafting! In this workshop, you’ll also learn how to incorporate colors in your projects & how to create cards in several unique styles.

Included in this workshop are over 30 brand-new card samples from Julie and her contributors. The three chapters contain a printable PDF for a total of over 40 pages, and 80 minutes of coordinating video tutorials. Julie’s talented contributors include card makers Laura Bassen & Michelle Wooderson.

At the end of this journey, you’ll find a BONUS chapter filled with souvenirs! Create a trendy card set with the card making kit designed by Marcy Penner of Hello Forever. The kit will be available for download as a PDF and as a cutting file you can use with your Silhouette machine.

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 Julie and to connect with other participants. Enjoy!
