Inspired by the Peas: Year in Review pages

Raise your hand if 2010 flew by for you...it sure did for me!  Can you believe it's coming to an end?  With a new year approaching, it's the perfect time to take a look back, reflect and create those 'review' pages.  I've seen a few pop up in the gallery and I find them so inspiring!  

2010 Everyday by crystalbella77

A Year in the Life by Fevvers

A Year of Joy and Laughter by dawninskip

Leave a comment if you've made a Year in Review page - I'd love to see it! smiley

What are your 2011 scrapbooking goals?

Hot Products at Two Peas Video 12.28.2010

Here is Kitty with the most pulled products in the warehouse this week!

And pssst...I have to share this gorgeous jar Kitty had made for me.  She drew my name in a Two Peas handmade gifts exchange and assembled this beautiful wintry scene.  She said she found the idea from a Pea in the gallery.  If you know who might have made one like this, will you leave a comment with the PeaName?  I'd love to check others out as well!

Isn't it beautiful?  I keep looking at it as it sits on my desk!

Have you seen this yet?  It's a new feature we're pretty psyched about: you can now connect your Two Peas and Facebook accounts, sharing more of your Two Peas favorites and activity with your friends on FB!  By having them connected, you have the option of sharing the projects you "Like", comments you've made on the message boards, as well as projects you upload to our Gallery - all to your FB profile!

I've connected my account - here is an example of how the Two Peas content looks on my FB profile page:

Connecting them is easy!  Simply sign in when prompted on the website, or click the "my: account" section in the second horizontal menu bar from the top of the website to adjust your settings.

There's more!  We're also giving away money!  Be the 50th, 100th, 200th, 500th or 1,000th person to login with your Facebook account at Two Peas and you'll receive a Two Peas Store Credit of US$10!! smiley

Edited to add: Congratulations to JennR72, jb_vean, KLyons, apigonfire and Lisa for making the Two Peas Facebook connection. A US$10 credit will be assigned to your Two Peas account shortly.

Questions?  Ask away!  I'd love to answer them!

A Two Peas Moment: the Santa

There is this Santa that has been around the Two Peas warehouse forever.  I'm not even sure where he came from.  Lately, Santa has been placed, by different team members, in different spots around the warehouse - behind doors and such - and we think it's just the most hilarious thing, lol.  I walked into my office one morning to find him greeting me at my desk.  That Santa's so sneaky! :)

 

p.s.  With this week being a busy Holiday-filled week, there will be no Hot Products, Kristina's Picks or Finally Friday videos.  You'll be able to catch them next week though!

Free Monthly Classes in 2011

UPDATED TO ADD:  The new Classes & Events page has launched!  Find it by clicking here, or by clicking on the Classes & Events section in the top horizontal menu bar!

Here it is - an announcement we've been so, so very eager to share - Free Monthly Classes in 2011!

This year every class will include an instructional video, PDF, and multiple examples - all for you, all for free!

On the 1st of every month: Scrapbook Stamping with Nichol Magouirk

Stamping isn't just for card-making!  In this class you'll learn how to take one of the most versatile supplies, stamps, and use them in your layouts!  Nichol will touch on embossing, creating backgrounds, titles, embellishments, inking and more!

On the 10th of every month: Products You Love Every Which Way with Shannon Tidwell

Supplies.  Our desks, closets, and rooms are full of them.  Are you using them to their full potential though?  This year we are going to cover 12 different categories of supplies.  We'll push them a little further, discover new uses, and most of all...inspire you to use them all!  Each month we'll focus on a new category and show several examples of using them EVERY WHICH WAY!

On the 20th of every month: Stretch a Sketch with Jen Gallacher

Join Garden Girl Jennifer Gallacher in a monthly class focused on layout sketches.  In this class, Jen will share how to create a layout from the monthly sketch.  She will also include additional layout samples that show a variety of new ways to use the same sketch including 8 1/2" x 11" and 12"x12" sketches and layouts.  Watch for additional tips and techniques for using products and tools in this class designed to help you get the most from your sketches.

On the 30th of every month: 4x6 Photo Love with Shimelle Laine

Are you a 4x6 photo fan?  Whether you have drawers of photos piling up or want to select your favourites to print and scrap each month, Garden Girl Shimelle Laine invites you to share a little love for the humble 4x6 photo!  Every month she'll focus on one design concept especially for 4x6 prints and show you variations on that technique so you can scrap in your own style.  Each month is a new look: one 4x6 print in January, two 4x6 prints in February, right up to a full dozen 4x6 photos in December's page!  Over the year, we'll look at both single and double page layouts, simple designs and ways to add additional pictures with interactive pages - there's something for everyone!  Paper and digital pages are both highlighted each month.  So grab your standard prints and join us for a year of 4x6 Photo Love!

It's going to be a great year, don't you think?! smiley

Answers to questions you may have: 

How do I sign up for a class?  We're glad you're interested!  There's no need to sign up - the content of these classes are available to you for free, and are posted on the website the date that it goes live each month.

Where do I find the classes?  You'll find the classes from the Classes & Events section of the website - launching very soon! 

How do I participate in a class? Your level of participation is up to you!  You can work at your own pace and follow the lessons as you like, or you can keep with the monthly rhythm, uploading your projects to the member gallery and sharing them in the class.  Checking the class challenge checkbox (you'll see it during the upload process) will ensure your project is posted to the class.  You can also comment on other participants projects and discuss the lesson with members and the instructor on the message board!

Post a comment if you have a question I've not answered, or if you just want to say "Yiipppee!" I love answering questions and reading "yiiipppeee's." smiley  I hope you'll join us in 2011, Peas!

Two Peas in CK Magazine: behind the name "Mrs. Bradley"

Did you spot our ad in the January issue of Creating Keepsakes?  We happen to think it's a pretty fun one! ;)

A little background behind the name "Mrs. Bradley..."  When we were conceptualizing her character, we had everything down but her name.  It was decided "Mrs Bradley" would be the perfect one.  It is a name that is special to us as it belongs to our warehouse manager and good friend, Jamie Bradley!

Jamie has been working for Two Peas for over 10 years and we think she's pretty awesome. :)  She possesses some of the characteristics we imagine our CK ad character to have - she's fun and hip and has a love for her family and friends that is the drive behind the way she leads her life.  

Hope you're enjoying the series in the magazine, and if you haven't already picked up an issue - check it out!

Weekly Warehouse Walk 12.2.2010

Hello, friends!  Here's today's warehouse walk!

What do you think of our new illustrated introduction?  Our graphics guy, Jerome, is quite the illustrator. :)

Here are some projects created with the products I've shown you today from our talented members!

Kicking It Comfy by helpmeronda using Count Me In by Sassafras

Red Riding by sexypeanut

Hi Card by sueluv2scrap using Echo Park's Life is Good

Life is Good mini album by roree also using Echo Park

Edited to add* In the video I mentioned a mini book made out of journaling cards.  I've linked it below.  Kj starre used Fancy Pants, but the Echo Park journaling sheet could easily be used for something like this as well:

Delight mini album by kj starre
