Did you know? Something cool on the photo board...

Hi Peas!  I wanted to give you a head's up in case you do not frequent the Photography board - a couple of kind and generous photographers (Ann and Molly) are giving lessons on lighting and critiquing a group of Peas.  While they are no longer taking volunteers for those willing to be critiqued, everything is published publicly and is an opportunity to grow and learn!  Check out their first lesson here!

Questions? Thoughts? Spill 'em!

Hi Peas!  Hope you're having a good week and have a weekend ahead of you that allows a little crafty time for yourself.  

So I'm asking for your help.  I'd love to know if there are questions you have as you navigate the site, thoughts on what you'd like to see posted on our Two Peas blogs, and if there's anything in Classes & Events that you'd like to see for next year.  I know - I'm full of questions today! :)  I'll be checking here on this post for comments in the next week and making notes for myself.  If there's a comment you see and agree, let me know as that helps me gauge how much of something is in demand. :)  Thanks guys - you are the best!

Chalkboard goodness.

If I'm writing love letters to chevron, would it be cheating if I wrote one to chalkboard too?!

   

The chalkboard in my kitchen.  Kristina doodling on the chalkboard in her office.

   

Another creation by Kristina.  Hubby and I (pic taken by my friend Laura).

And some amazing creations in the gallery...

   

  

Anyone else obsessed?!  Have a happy weekend everyone!

___________________________________

Note: There's been a change in Finally Friday.  Some of you who follow the series may have seen on Kristina Werner's blog that she has decided to step down from her role as a Garden Girl.  We are sad to see her go, but wish her the best of luck as she explores new things in the future.  We will, however, continue the Finally Friday series very soon!  Keep an eye out here on my blog for news of what's to come. :)

Design School at Two Peas beginning August 22nd

Edited to add: The event has been made live!  See it here.

Design School at Two Peas

 

I have yet to meet a papercrafter who didn't love to learn something new.  Kids shouldering new backpacks freshly stocked with #2 pencils and blank notebooks are not the only ones bound to grow in knowledge this back-to-school season!

For three weeks beginning August 22nd, "design school" at Two Peas is in session.  We will be exploring principles and elements of design that will help push our projects from "Good" to "Even better!"  Ready to learn?  We promise the homework is much more fun than algebra!

Here are just a few sneak peeks of what you'll see:

     

__________________________________________________________________________

What you can expect from the Design School event at Two Peas:

*  Each week we will explore 2 principles of design with tips from the experts - our team of Garden Girls and special guests!  See how a wide range of styles can use the same principles and give amazing and differing results!

* Taking notes is not necessary - we'll have printables ready for you to take right to your crafting table.

* The popular video series, From Start to Finish layouts, will follow along in the themes for those three weeks - which means grab your favorite beverage and settle in for some inspiration!

* Both school and non-school themed projects - something for everyone!

* Sketches, color combos, freebies and challenges...just because we love to give extra credit. ;)

 

Interested?  No need to sign up!  Just visit the Events section of Classes & Events on the 22nd and be inspired.  See you then!

Tea parties and 75% off and such.

(above:  Christmas tea party)

I don't invite my teddy bears anymore, but I still love a good tea party these days.  And do you know what else I love?  Using Dear Lizzy die-cut papers as placemats.  And do you know what other thing I love?

 

They're 75% off. :)

Inspiration from a Pop Tart

I'm pretty sure my mom would frown upon my recent habit of ingesting this sugar-y treat every morning for breakfast.  I grew up in a home where healthy cereals full of fiber were found in our pantry.  But my mom is a scrapbooker, and perhaps if she were to learn of my habit I could convince her this fruit-filled tart, with its creamy white layer dusted with rainbow-like sprinkles, serves as serious inspiration for creative projects.  Just look at these equally decadent pages from the Garden Girls embellished with splatters of bubblegum and lemon-yellow mist, teeny-tiny, sugary crystals and miniature stickers. They are even yummier than my breakfast!

Sprinkled by Lisa Truesdell

Cupcake Party by Jen Johner

My Favorite Two Year Old by Stacey Sattler

And going about creating Pop-Tart-Y projects is a piece of cake with these confetti-like products in the Two Peas store.  I think we should all start using "Pop-Tart-Y" as an adjective, by the way. :)

Sprinkly papers:

          

Create your own sprinkles with mist, gems, rhinestones, buttons...

          

Some digikits that include embellishments for sprinkling:

            

What do you think?  Do you believe my mom would go for a little Pop Tart in my routine if it helps in my creative endeavors?

5 Things I'm Loving Right Now

Hi Peas!  I'm back from my trip and have been enjoying getting caught up on everything and click-click-clicking through the site. I thought I'd share a few things that have had me going "Wow!" today.

This stop-motion video featuring the new Amy Tan line from American Crafts (coming soon to Two Peas!):

This Marilyn Monroe inspired photo shoot shared on the Photography board by Free~Bird:

The way Vivian Masket shrunk her ancestors' passport documents and used them in this layout.  You did see we have the new October Afternoon Boarding Pass in the store, right?!

The blending of this digital art journal page.  Love that tiny floral print and the inspiration to journal on my laptop!

The title and journaling work by Jill Sprott in this fabulous multi-photo layout all about Summer.  I think this stamp set makes a great basic alpha set - so versatile (and in demand, only 3 left!):

   

Hope you enjoyed these five things as much as I did.  I could have gone on and on...so much inspiration from the Peas!
