Welcome to the Gardeners' Digest, a monthly update from the Garden Girls, the design team at Two Peas in a Bucket. We'd love it if you'd visit each of our blogs today to see what's in bloom in the Garden.
My most recent Garden project features my three favorite subjects:
These are my three people: Rob, Zoe, and Mazie. And yes, I am aware that one of these people is indeed a dog. She clearly thinks of herself as a person, and she certainly takes up a person-sized section of my bed each night.

I know I'm not the only Garden Girl who's had love on the brain this month. One of my favorites from this week's Garden updates is this layout from Amy Tangerine:
Bright spots on a neutral background: I am so feeling this right now. I love the hand-stitched tag, the photos arranged in a grid, and the charming little details.
Of course I did notice that Amy worked in some new CHA goodies here, like the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan line, which was included in the happy mail I received today from Two Peas.

(I have big plans for this one!)
|Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Fabric & Epoxy Brads Embellishments|
(The green heart in the middle is my favorite.)
|American Crafts Gardenia Tarragon Medium Clothespins|
At first glance at the CHA pics, I worried that these might be a little too big for a layout,
but now that I've seen them up close, I think that they could totally work on a layout.
They're about 1/4" (width) x 1 7/8" (length).
I'll put them to use soon and will be sure to share!

Aside from lots of new products, there's even more that's new at Two Peas in a Bucket. A new "Workshops" section is joining the "Classes & Events" section at Two Peas, and the very first workshop is...
That's right! Garden Girl Shimelle Laine is the instructor of the Two Peas in a Bucket debut workshop, "The Hitchhiker's Guide to Scrapbooking." If you have taken a class from Shimelle before, or have watched one of her many videos on Two Peas, then you know you are in for a treat.
Here's the course description:
"Are you drowning in a sea of scrapbook supplies and a plethora of photos, but wish things just came together easily? Then 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to Scrapbooking' is just what you need: your guide to life, the universe and pretty paper! Join Garden Girl Shimelle Laine for this self-paced workshop you can use any time. Over five chapters, she'll share forty-two brand new scrapbook pages and easy-to-follow advice on choosing supplies, designing pages, embellishing your work and writing your memories. Each chapter includes a printable PDF and coordinating video, plus the guide's bonus reference section includes sketches, supply lists and other handy hints. Designed for scrapping at home or at a crop, The Hitchhiker's Guide to Scrapbooking reminds you: Don't Panic - get crafting!
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 Shimelle and to connect with other participants. Enjoy!"
[ETA: The winner has been selected.]
The next stop on the blog hop is Julie Campbell (whose embroidery hoop card you must see, so be sure to scroll down a bit after reading the blog hop post).
