gardeners’ digest november edition

Welcome to another edition of’s gardeners’ digest! We hope to inspire you with ideas and great products!
I printed the photos on cardstock, just for fun and a different vibe.
I love how she documents her family’s life. LOVE.
I have a VERY special giveaway this time around. I will personally send you some of my favorite things offered in the 2peas shop. Handpicked by me. Sort of like a lesser version of Oprah’s favorite things : ) …all scrapbook related. Did anyone watch Oprah’s holiday special Sunday night? I was crying like a baby! So awesome. Leave a comment if you are stateside. Sorry that I won’t be able to ship internationally on this giveaway.
But wait! There’s more! I will also be picking a winner for this great class!

Workshop:  Seasonal Storytelling: Mini Books for Sharing Each Season’s Special Memories with Amy Heller

Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn. Each season brings about its own wonderful and memorable moments for us all.

Perhaps Winter, when celebrating Christmas or Hannukah and the New Year, is your most memorable time of the year. Or maybe it is Spring when your family celebrates a number of birthdays, or you love preparing your garden and celebrating Easter. Then there is Summer – full of outdoor activities, 4th of July, camping and family vacations. And of course, Autumn with the beginning of school, the glorious changing of nature’s color, bountiful harvests, Halloween and Thanksgiving. When you break the year up into seasons, there certainly are plenty of stories worth telling!

In Seasonal Storytelling: Mini Books for Sharing Each Season’s Special Memories, we break down the year into the four seasons. This provides a naturally broadened perspective through which to document your special memories. Because of this broadened view, we introduce you to four different approaches to creating seasonal mini albums – Events & Traditions, Timeframes, On-the-Go and Reflections. With each chapter, we will focus on a different season and share two of these four approaches for tackling that season to create a mini book filled with a memories that fits your lifestyle, your scrapping habits and your style of creating.

Showcasing eight different and unique mini albums filled with over 100 pages of ideas, Seasonal Storytelling covers each of the seasons, throughout four chapters. Every chapter contains a printable PDF containing two beautifully crafted mini albums along with a coordinating video. Also included are two exclusive printable journaling cards used as the base for one of the mini albums featured in the workshop.

The content of this workshop will be available immediately upon purchase. The lessons are available for you to work at your own pace and upon purchase can be accessed in the “Workshops” section under “Classes & Events.” A private message board forum is also available to ask questions for Amy and to connect with other participants. Enjoy!

This time around I am over the moon about each and every thing selected! Not that I’m ever insincere in my choices, but this time I really am overly excited. The gold chevron washi tape is a must have, whether you are crafty or not. Perfect for the holidays! I plan to use it in many ways and I have more than one roll in my shopping cart! Every single thing I have chosen would make a perfect stocking stuffer. I’m helpful, right?

Next on the list is the awesome and talented Kandis!
