Two Peas Gardeners' Digest: July Edition

Welcome to the Gardeners' Digest, a monthly update from the Garden Girls, the design team at Two Peas In a Bucket!
Need a fun way to package up a gift card?  In this week's Finally Friday video, I show you how you can create a fun flip card that also doubles as a gift card holder.  

I'll be using some pages from one of Amy Tangerine's Daybooks.  The pages are easy to separate & you can use the remainder of the book to create a summer mini book or travel journal!


In the video, I'll show you some new ways to use washi tape. I'll also be utilizing glassine bags to create some unique packaging.



This Seasoned Traveler layout by Anabelle O'malley:

I just love everything about this page!  The Silhouette die-cuts... the pops of amazing color - it's all just utter eye candy!



InLinkz.com
1. Basic Grey Clippings Garland: The new Clippings collection is fantastic & this is one of my favorite pieces!  The page is full of stitched banner pieces.  It's one of those things that looks even 100x's cooler in person.  :)


2.  Lisa's Truesdell's online Divide & Conquer Workshop: I just took this workshop & can't rave on it enough!  It's perfect for those who have a collection of memorabilia & photos from a trip or event & want a creative & easy way to document it all.  She gives so many great tips & her tutorials are very easy to follow.  And... for only $12, it's a steal!  I just ordered my Simple Stories album & am ready to create a mini book from our vacation this summer.


3.  Hello Forever Journaling Cards: If you haven't taken a look at the Two Peas digital shop lately, make sure to check out all of the printable journaling cards that are available.  They're perfect for Project Life & even make great focal points for cards.


4.  Whisker Graphics Envelopes:  I used a couple of these glassine envelopes in my Finally Friday video (above) & use them all the time in my PL album as well.  (They're all only $0.25 each!)  The smaller ones are the perfect size for gift cards or journaling cards & the larger ones make great card envelopes or gift packaging.


5. Crate Paper's Little Boy Blue Collection: The classic patterns & sweet colors in this collection are made for so much more than baby projects!  I have been using the paper over & over for all-occasion cards.  The colors are so cheerful & I love the primary palate of blue, red & green.

Today, I have TWO giveaways for two of my lovely blog visitors.  To be eligible to win one of these prizes, leave a comment on this post.  I'll draw a winner on Saturday, July 28th.  (Make sure to leave your Two Peas user name in your comment so that the class can be added to your account.)
