Gardeners' Digest :: Scrapbooking News from the Garden Girls

Gardeners' Digest :: Scrapbooking News from the Garden Girls
scrapbook page
A little digest of news from the Garden Girls – on the twenty-second of the month, we bring you Gardeners’ Digest, a blog-hop style wrap up of our favourite projects and products at Two Peas in a Bucket. If you’ve just arrived from Shannon’s blog, then hello hello! (And if you’re just starting here, you can following it around, of course!)

First a little look at something you’ll find shortly at Two Peas – a peek at what’s coming up in this week’s glittery adventure! You don’t have to wait long to see that adventure though – it will be live for you later today.

(Random aside: yesterday I had a missed call on my phone from a number I didn’t recognise, so I Googled the number and it came up as the London Mayor’s office. Intrigued, I asked for theories on Twitter and Facebook. My very favourite was the suggestion that the mayor is creating a butterfly symbol to shine into the London sky in times of need. Oh goodness that sounds like a lot of responsibility!)

This month I have found my jaw dropping at the layouts from one particular Garden Girl: Wilna is on fire this month! She is so inspired by hearts and the lovey-dovey themes of February and her gallery is filled with such beautiful work, including this new coffee cup album and several 12×12 pages. I love every single thing she is making right now. Definitely one for your bookmarks.

scrapbooking supplies
Since our last digest, I have to admit I have received not one but TWO boxes from Two Peas! As the new releases roll in they sell out quickly so I end up ordering more often to make sure someone else doesn’t pinch what I want in my albums. (Selfish, I know!) My orders have included letter sticker collections from Prima, plenty of the new Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection, Rhonna Farrer’s new line with My Mind’s Eye called Follow your Heart, plus papers and a few embellishments from the Country Picnic collection by Pebbles. Since last month Two Peas has also added a bunch of printable designs, especially for journaling cards. I’m particularly loving these from Polka Dot Pixel. Love that splash of bright colour!

Two things for you:
First, leave a comment on this post to be entered to win a $10 gift certificate to Two Peas. Easy! Enter before the end of Thursday and the winner will be posted on Friday.
Second, your next stop on the way is Wendy Sue. Go, go, go!
