Instead of just yesterday, Two Peas is celebrating Scrapbooking Day for a full weekend, so today I’m focusing on the challenges there. Just like the challenges I set here yesterday, all the Two Peas challenges are open until next Sunday the 15th of May and there are prizes to be won, of course! So you’re invited to join in. I’m hosting a chat there today – 8pm UK time, 2pm US Central time – and I’ll post a direct link here when that starts so you can come say hello!
If you are not a member at Two Peas, create an account and join in the fun. They have a great community and so much inspiration. Plus fabulous shopping! But you can join in the community without shopping if you need to save your pennies. One tip for creating an account if you don’t live in the US: the registration process asks for your address, including a state. Of course, not every country has states, but if you leave it blank, sometimes it says your address isn’t valid. Type XX in that box if you don’t have a state, and that usually does the trick! You don’t have to give any payment details to join and you can choose which newsletters you would like to receive by email.
Jamie is the community manager at Two Peas and she manages all the cool things like events and also takes care of the message boards, the design team and all the fun stuff that goes on at Two Peas. On Friday, she set three challenges to kick off the weekend. The first challenge is all about folding. Include some folded element on your layout! That means you could even do this month’s 4×6 Photo Love and enter for both challenges if you fancied following that project this week! Or of course, anything else that involves folding… so I’ve pulled out the new Sassafras Foldies. I love these embellishments but I don’t think their full potential is obvious when you see them on the sheet, so here’s a quick video that lets you see how they work.
Really loving the foldies on my pages and hoping Sassafras continue to make them with their new collections. (They are showing a new sheet in their Sunshine Broadcast collection that will hit stores soon, so I think it’s a good sign!) Michelle used them here in her guest post last month too.
So that’s one challenge done for the Two Peas weekend event… now I’m on to challenge two – Questions and Answers – and hoping I can come up with something clever!
I hope you’re having a lovely Sunday!
