Two Peas in a Bucket Gardner's Digest


Good Morning! Welcome to the August rendition of the Gardner's Digest, a monthly update from the Garden Girls, the design team for Two Peas in a Bucket.

If you just happened upon this post, it all starts at the Two Peas blog. If you are following along the hop and you came from Shannon's blog, WELCOME! :)


I should say, fresh from the 2peas garden... These are projects that have been recently planted in the garden at 2peas. 


If you haven't notice, the theme for this month at 2peas is 'Back to School'. I used that theme on 3 of my last projects including the current Saturday Card Sketch Challenge.

If you haven't heard of the Saturday Card Sketch Challenge, it's a weekly challenge that I post at 2peas that goes live on each Saturday morning. I will give you a sketch and my card based on the sketch and challenge you to create a card using the current sketch. All you have to do is load your card in the gallery at 2peas -- MAKE SURE YOU CLICK ON THE SATURDAY CARD SKETCH CHALLENGE and you are entered for a chance to win a $5 gift certificate to the 2peas store. EASY!

Here is this week's sketch and card by me. :)

Two other cards I created this month are also school themed.

We've got a giveaway for you of course!!! Have you seen this great workshop by our own Jennifer Gallacher? Leave a comment below for a chance to win this workshop!

Here's the details about the mini workshop:


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! 


Don't wait to see if you win! If you sign up and win the giveaway, we'll refund your money or let you give your spot to a friend. Awe-some!

Now, head on over to the fabulous Jennifer Gallacher's blog today! You don't want to miss the rest of the hop!

Have a great one!
