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 want to share with you a little peek of a project in the Garden very soon. Our next monthly theme in the garden is "Shapes" so I created a layout about my youngest and his love for asking Siri (you know the lady behind the iPod LOL) all sorts of questions. I focused on speech bubbles as my shape. 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 especially love this recent layout by fellow Garden Girl Lisa Dickinson using the beautiful True Love collection by Basic Grey.
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 ...
- All About A Boy Collection by Echo Park (with two little men in our family this was definitely a must have - LOVE the colors!)
- Brothers Mini Theme Collection by Echo Park (another must have for me to document my two boys and their relationship)
- Here & There Collection by Studio Calico (LOVE the fresh colors in this collection)
- Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm Collection by American Crafts (I've always been a fan of the Dear Lizzy collections and I'm digging the more saturated color scheme of this one in particular)
- Amy Tangerine Yes, Please Collection by American Crafts (I always love Amy Tan's collections and this one is no exception)
Garden Girl Wilna Furstenberg has just launched a brand new workshop called Art Class with Wilna. Here's a description of Wilna's new class ...
Join Garden Girl Wilna Furstenberg on an exciting journey in art making! If you are looking to learn simple techniques that will fill you with wonder and bring the fun back into scrapbooking, then this workshop is for you!
The 10 chapters encourage you to play with stencils, Modge Podge, stitching, wax, fabric, found items, washi tape, glitter, pens, paint, masking fluid and molding paste. You'll learn to work with these mediums as design elements, with 50 creative pages from Wilna and her contributors to reference and spark creativity. The TEN videos and 45-page PDF explain and demonstrate Wilna's creative process and will no longer have you guessing, "How did she do that?" Silhouette users will enjoy the extra cut files Wilna has used in her pages and shared. A must-have workshop for any fan of Wilna Furstenberg's delightful and inspiring work.
