Last day to submit your scrapbook pages

scrapbook page by shimelle laine @

Dusting the stress along with the cobwebs this Monday morning and moving forward after last week’s news. It was just ten days ago that I posted a weekend of scrapbooking challenges, and yet it seems like another world! So I’ve taken some time to get back to those projects, and the challenges are open for your submissions until today. (The link up tool at the end of each post tells you how much time is left, so that’s the easiest way to see it in your timezone!)

This sketch was the post that kicked off those three days of challenges, with Corrie Jones supplying the first interpretation. Find that post here to share your page inspired by this sketch.

I realise I’ve always encouraged my readers to use the gallery at Two Peas as a place to upload your pages, and that’s all a little awkward as I write this. I haven’t come close to fully exploring the options for other places to share your work. There are page galleries at many scrapbooking sites, including and Studio Calico. You can upload and share via your own blog or Instagram account. There are options to try.

If you are interested in preserving your entire Two Peas gallery, you may be interested in this announcement that would copy all your uploads to the gallery elsewhere. I haven’t tried this so I can’t say from experience how easy it was, but have a look to see if it is something you might find helpful. I know many of us have layout galleries that provide an interesting look at our evolution as crafters.

Here’s my interpretation of this simple sketch, and a return to that original idea I mentioned that a patterned paper could remain largely on show and the rest of the page could be made with just scraps from other papers. This page was made with the last papery bits of my kit from last August, which brings me to something else that is changing – my product links have always gone to Two Peas and that will be a lot of links to change. It also means I don’t have a nice and easy way to post a Best of Both Worlds kit tomorrow, of course. I have some investigating to do as I want to make sure I am happy with any retailers I recommend, so I appreciate your patience as I find the best way forward. Of course you can find products via a search of Google or your store of choice, so this layout was made from Carta Bella’s Hello Again and Fancy Pants’ What a Wonderful Day collections, plus stickers from Dear Lizzy’s Lucky Charm line.

If you’ve created layouts from the weekend challenges, I hope you’ll share them with us! Find those challenges here.

    Love your layout and wish I could have played along to more challenges! Thanks for putting it all together, there was so much fab inspiration that I’ll be using in the future!

  2. Loydene Says:

    Just FYI — I used your link to and transferred my 2Ps gallery. I’m not a huge sharer so there were only 9 items to transfer but it was quick and required little, to no, effort.

  3. Loydene Says:

    OOPS … since I am currently unable to find my images at, even using the link from their page informing me of a successful transfer which displayed thumbnails of the items, and even finding the “two peas transfer” album but with 0 images noted … I feel it best to modify my above statement! It was quick, required little effort —- but I can’t locate the images!

  4. Julianna Says:

    I really love this page! Especially the stamped circles that go over multiple layers, and the mix of ink splatter + enamel dots. Off to go find a much-beloved sheet of paper to highlight… :)

  5. Dedra Long Says:

    Hi Loydene!

    I forwarded your comment to the developers at and there was a programming bug. They have found and fixed it. Everything should be working smoothly now. Thank you for leaving a comment to help us find it. Have a great day! :)

  6. Tilla Says:

    Thanks Shimelle for a great weekend of fun ! Really loved all the ideas & will be back to do more ! So glad you are still around !

  7. Jean Says:

    You may like to investigate Scrap Stacks also for the galleries. It is a wonderful site

  8. Loydene Says:

    Transfer fixed. No problem for me .. as Dedra said about the “developers” — found and fixed and everything is working smoothly. Still quick and no effort on my part!

  9. Lisa-Jane Johnson Says:

    Such a time of change for you but hopefully for the better in lots of ways. I still have to come back to this sketch because I ran out of time but its on my list! :-)

  10. stitching lady Says:

    I loved trying these challenges, even though I didn’t manage to upload any. Many thanks for the inspiration!

  11. Madeline St Onge Says:

    I am waiting to see what you do next. Good luck Shimelle and Glitter Girl, hope you can keep her as your own

  12. Madeline St Onge Says:

    What about you MB wouldn’t that work

  13. Andrea Says:

    As usual I liked all your challenges-unfortunately I was so busy the last 2 weeks that I couldn’t finish any… but please keep up the great inspiration! I really love your sketches. You are my scrapping hero:)

  14. Camcas Says:

    Love your blog and hope that you don’t go anywhere!
    Have bought a couple of classes and hope there is so e way for you to save glitter girl episodes.
    Thanks for trying to help us all

  15. jane Says:

    Love all your sketches Shimelle and will most certainly use these in the future – just wish I had more time in the last couple of weeks to play along.

  16. Tammy Says:

    Hi GG,
    please consider Bluemoonscrapbooking for your future kits. Scott has helped me and customer service is great. They carry a variety of companies.PS I am not the Tammy that works there! haha just a satisfied customer.

  17. Johanna Says:

    I’ve always been happy with, they have a shipping cost I can live with and lots of new stuff coming in all of the time.

  18. Gina Says:

    Thank you for all you do Shimelle!

  19. Cindy England Says:

    Hi, Shimelle. I used the transfer last night to move my nearly 200 projects from 2Peas to – it was reasonably quick even with a large number of files and completely automated. I had no problems at all with the transfer or finding my projects in my gallery (in their own 2Peas album, even) – all the multiple photos, descriptions and upload dates are still preserved. I’m very happy with them and think this may be my new papercrafting home.

  20. Jillc Says:

    Thanks for all this info! I used the SB tool to transfer los and it was very easy and didn’t take all that much time to capture all 473!!

    Most of the people I know shop at ACOT, Scrapbook Generation,, AWDML or Frantic Stamper. I would also add Simpn Says Stamp. I mostly shopped at 2ps so my experience is limited.

  21. Gab Says:

    Great LO!

  22. Sinead Says:

    Thanks for a fabulous weekend of inspiration and I think this positivity is just what is needed in scrapbooking at the moment! I got to take part in a few challenges, though I was unfortunately too late to submit my layouts (literally by a few hours!). This is a link to a blog post I wrote with my entries if you’re interested :)

  23. Tammie Blakeman Says:

    I shop at A Cherry on Top. They have a gallery, forum and some fun games to win points toward discounts on orders. Their inventory is good and customer service & turn-around is outstanding. I know you’re finding your way with new baby and bad news, but I hope we see video each week – it’s my Thursday ritual to watch you instead of programming. Of course, was so glad to see your weekend, but didn’t know until Sunday afternoon when I saw it on Instagram. Still going to use the challenges as inspiration and of course will definitely credit you with those creations. Thank you for everything you do and good luck in your new endeavors.
