April Gardeners’ Digest–Two Peas Blog Hop…

gardeners' digestnew5

Good morning!  Welcome to April’s edition of the Gardner’s Digest!  To start off, I wanted to share a recent project that went up in the garden earlier this month – I haven’t blogged about it yet, so I thought today was the perfect day to share it!

freshfromthegarden

It’s another two-page layout all about Spring Break last year (this year’s photos look eerily similar since we went to my parents’ vacation home again – but you know what they say about a good thing!).

I loved taking the opportunity to mix and match products from so many different lines.  You can find more information about the products I used as well as better close-up photos of the fun little details HERE in my layout gallery at Two Peas.

It’s always so hard to choose five favorite products to share – there are so many fun new things in the store.  Here are a few of the items I couldn’t resist – and I’ll be using them on my projects soon (you can click on the pictures to see the details in the store):

Whenever I’m needed a bit of inspiration I click over to the “videos” section of the Two Peas website and start watching some of the girls at work!  I love the peek into their creative processes.

There’s a new video every weekday…plus a HUGE library of past videos.  If you’re looking for inspiration, you should definitely check out some of their videos! :)

And now for the best part of all – today’s giveaway!  I get to give away one spot in the newest workshop at Two Peas!  Shannon Tidwell is the sassy scrapper behind this new class:

tidwellprintable_middle_size

Here’s the description:

Are you looking to add something extra to your pages? More color, more punch, more pizazz? Are you ready for a fresh and energizing approach? Then come scrap with me, Garden Girl Shannon Tidwell. I love making big and bold pages that are full of life, but not full of time. (someone has to do the laundry!) I’m going to give you tips, tricks, and ideas so that you can make pages that pop no matter your style. Together we’ll cover five chapters, with over 50 layouts, including two themed albums!

You’ll get ideas from the beginning stages of finding and using inspiration, building bold pages, making the most of collection kits, and then finish it off with a ‘through the years’ album as well as a ‘school year’ album.

This is a self paced workshop that you can use any time. The workshop comes complete with easy to follow PDF’s as well as a coordinating video for each of the 5 chapters. Not to mention we’ll be able to chat it up on a private message board.

So let’s add a bit of sass to our scrapbooks together!

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 Shannon and to connect with other participants. Enjoy!

For an opportunity to win a free spot in Shannon’s workshop, just leave a comment telling me the first thing that pops into your head when you hear the word “sassy.”  I’ll tell you what my first thought is – a horse!  When I was a little girl, we had a horse named Sassy! :o)

Please be sure to leave your Two Peas name in your comment as well.  And, as always, if you want to go ahead and purchase the class now (click here), you can do that and then if you win, Two Peas will refund your money or you can gift your free class to a friend!  That way, you don’t have to wait – you can get sassy right away (the class, not the horse)!! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

After you leave your comment for a chance to win, hop on over and visit Glitter Girl herself – Shimelle!
