Live in the Moment Layout Plus Two Free Classes!

Are you living in the moment? Or are you like me - sometimes focusing too much on things from the past or at other times spending too much time worrying about the future? When I went looking for something to feature on our blog today, I spotted this layout and was reminded to live in the moment and love life. Today, I'm going to focus on simply enjoying whatever is happening right now. I hope you enjoy this layout and every moment of today!

Technique Tuesday Project

If you live in the Portland area or you are flying here to come to Bliss, you can come make this layout during our Ala Carte classes on Thursday, June 10th. During the Live in the Moment class, you will make this layout plus a second page using stamps designed by Ali Edwards. Each of the Ala Carte class kits includes a clear stamp set and an ink pad that are yours to keep. We are offering five Ala Carte classes and two of them are free! You can learn more about the Live in the Moment class and all of the Ala Carte classes on the Technique Tuesday website. Or you can ask the folks here at Two Peas to special order the kit for you.

Go Fish (Plus You Could Win Some Stamps)

What are your favorite things to do on a sunny day? Eileen Collins made this layout about a fishing trip she took with her son.

Technique Tuesday Project

To make this layout, Eileen started with a 5x7 and two wallet-sized photos. She chose three colors from the photos. By using those colors of cardstock and ink, she draws our attention to her son, the water, and the green landscape. She used blue and green ink pads to add color to several Wavy Baseboard Technique Tiles. The Wavy Baseboards frame the photos and compliment the water theme. She tore off two Baseboard Tile pieces and tied pieces of brown leather cord around them to anchor the 5x7 picture to the layout. She stamped the title, journaling lines (using the Remember the Moments stamp set), and a border (using Bijou Borders) around the photos to finish the layout. If you would like to purchase any of these products, please let the folks at Two Peas know. They may be willing to special order them for you.

If you leave a comment here telling us about your favorite Memorial Day activities, you could win a set of the Remember the Moments stamps. I will choose a winner on Tuesday.

Capture Life by Ali Edwards

This layout is based on a page designed by the amazing Ali Edwards! Eileen Collins scraplifted (with Ali's permission of course) the overall design and we couldn't be happier with the results. To highlight the photos, Eileen started with FUNdamental Rings Technique Tiles. To add color, she applied blue and green ink to the tiles.  She used a stamp set named "The Story" which was also designed by Ali for the title. Then she stamped images on the other tiles to make the photo frames and buttons.

Technique Tuesday Project

Would you like to learn more about how to scrapbook your everyday life? As our special guest at Bliss, Ali will be sharing what that means to her and how you can make sure you aren't missing these everyday family memories. The Technique Tuesday teachers will lead your through the workshop project which is a 2-page layout that incorporates some brand new artwork designed by Ali. You will be inspired and entertained, and you will enjoy the process as we make this captivating project. You can learn more on the events section of the Technique Tuesday website!

Meet our newest team member

Sadie

 

I'd like to introduce the newest member of the extended Technique Tuesday family. Her name is Sadie. She is 8 weeks old. One of our neighbors somehow managed to have a surprise litter of pups. My 11 year-old daughter fell in love with this one so we have a surprise puppy in our house.

 

Sadie is supposedly 100% Lhasso Apso. However based on the noises she was making during the night, I'm pretty sure she is part coyote.

 

We took a whole bunch of pictures of Sadie this morning but most of them were blurry. Sadie was rather busy digging a hole to China. So this is it for now. I'll take more pictures this weekend. And once Sadie starts sleeping through the night I may wake up enough to do some scrapbook pages.

Tell Us About Your Family and You Could Win!

This big brother looks like he is a superstar! Mom, Heather Binnie, highlighted the special relationship between her son and daughter in this layout. She used the word stamps from the Technique Tuesday Oh Brother set to create the title and subtitle. She used the star and dot images in the same set to stamp a pattern on one of the Wavy Technique Tiles. She used a red ink pad and black ink pad to add color to the largest Wavy Technique Tiles to frame the entire layout.

Technique Tuesday Project

We'd love to see your family-themed projects. Send a picture of your project to us at Ideas at TechniqueTuesday dot com. If your project highlights our product, we may ask you to use it in our gallery and you might win some free stamps! We can't wait to see your projects!

Thank You Card - Red Flower

 

 

I'm feeling thankful today. Not for any big reason. Just for this quiet spring morning. How is your morning going?

This morning I added this card to our gallery here on Two Peas. If you'd like to learn more about this card and see more projects by our design team just go to our gallery.

The last couple days have been busy around the TT offices. Our team who was at the Novi Mega Meet last weekend got back on Monday. They wanted me to say hello to all the MI folks!

And yesterday the warehouse team shipped a big pile of stuff to Buffalo for the CKC there on May 21-22. Are any of you going to CKC Buffalo?

Where ever you are I hope you have a great day!

And the winners are...

Technique Tuesday Loving Words stamp setOk, I just had one of those goosebump moments. Last week I posted about giving away some stamps and Technique Tiles and I said I would announce the winner on Monday. Well then my DD had some drama on Monday and my SIL arrived on Tuesday and I forgot about announcing the winners. This morning I got a PM from freckledcutie asking about the winner so I went out to random.org and it picked this:

Min: 1
Max:  17
Result: 8
Powered by RANDOM.ORG

Then I went to our blog post and guess who left comment number 8 - Freckledcutie. I think it was just meant to be! Freckledcutie, you win the Loving Words stamps.

I also said we'd give away a package of FUNdamental Hearts Technique Tiles. And the random number generator said:

Min:  1
Max:  17
 Result: 4
Powered by RANDOM.ORG

Freckledcutie and TracieClaiborne, would you PM your addresses to me!

Blog Post

Yesterday I decided that I would blog about the Summer Vacation class and project kit today. I drafted a lovely blog post and then as my evening unfolded I had some second thoughts. We live in Portland, Oregon where it usually doesn't get below 40 degrees - even in the middle of the winter. And it is May which implies springtime, right? So last weekend we planted tomatoes, strawberries, rhubarb, herbs, and lots of flowers. Then last night the weather reports all said it was going to get down near freezing. Yikes! My daughter and I spent the evening covering all the plants and (now imagine an earnest yet dramatic 11-year-old voice here) "saving the crops". Too funny! Anyway, I hope wherever you are that you are warm, your crops are safe, and that you have some lovely summer-themed pictures to scrapbook.

Technique Tuesday Project

If you live in the Portland area or you are coming to Bliss, you can make this layout and a second page during our Summer Vacation class on June 10th. I am pretty sure (or at least I am hoping) it will be warmer and more summer-like by then. You can learn more about this class in the Ala Carte classes section of our website.

If you aren't in our area, you can still make this layout using the Summer Vacation project kit. The Summer Vacation kit includes a set of clear stamps, ink pads, FUNdamental Technique Tiles, Stickles Glitter Glue, full-color step-by-step instructions, and all of the cardstock you need to create a two beautiful layouts! You can see get it on our website or ask Two Peas to special order it for you!
