Garden Girl Blog Hop

Welcome to the Two Peas in a Bucket Garden Girl Blog Hop! A Garden Girl is the title we receive as designers for the Two Peas website. As Garden Girls we create projects, host challenges, teach classes, and participate in events all designed to inspire your creativity. This week the Garden Girls are sponsoring special projects and giveaways on our personal blogs. Be sure to follow the list below as you hop from one blog to the next. Each Garden Girl is hosting her own giveaway so be sure to read the instructions for how you can participate in each contest. If you get lost simply either start at the beginning of the blog hop again or skip to the next blog listed below.

Hopefully you arrived from Wendy Sue Anderson's blog.  Your next stop is Jenny Chesnick's blog.

I have a fun prize from Two Peas to give away, so make sure you read this entire post to find out how you can win!

I've been having a blast with my new Silhouette Cameo die cutting machine!  My baby sister is newly engaged & I thought I'd make her a lovey dovey tag book to jot down memories.
(click on photos to see details)

This envelope template was one of the downloads that comes standard with the new Silhouette software.  I cut out several & added die cut tags to each of the pockets.

I tucked my tag booklet into a paper sack and decorated the front to match.  The words "you & me" were die-cut from pink vinyl.

I hope you've enjoyed taking a peek at my little book of love!  I have a $15 Two Peas gift certificate up for grabs!!!  All you have to do is comment to be entered in the drawing.  For an additional chance to win, simply go to Two Peas & leave a second comment, telling me one item that's on your wish list!  (Here is a link to some of the hot items in the shop now to give you a place to start.)

The winner will be announced on Tuesday, November 8th, so make sure to check back to see if you've won!

  90. Hi Julie,

    I own a Silhouette SD, since summer, my first ever cutting machine and I'm smitten, in love and enamored of it. I thank God who blessed me with my machine at EXACTLY when I needed it and feel comfortable using it. I've been having a ton of fun using it. Cameo is top on my list too.

    Thanks for this contest and blog hop. I'm going to go and leave a SECOND comment because I see something I'd LOVE to have from the 2peas store.

    Blessings,
    Barb

    Happy Creating,
