2Peas Garden Hop


It's that time again...the twopeasinabucket.com Garden Girls hop! Remember to stop by each and every blog for a peek into what's new and inspiring + fun giveaways.
A sneak of a layout I have coming soon to the Garden. I worked with a mix of patterns from different manufacturers to create a page about my son and his love of books.
This is my favorite part of the hop. I'm inspired by so many Peas, that it's hard to choose every month. I picked this layout by Pea mommy2tate because it's so bright, happy and reminds me that summer is oh, so close. She has an amazing linear and colorful style that I love. You can check out the rest of her gallery here.
I don't think I can narrow it down to just five products this month. There are entire collections that I just got and am in *love* with. So right now on top (and all around) my desk are:
Summer Fresh by Simple Stories. I'm using it for everything from Disney to preschool pages. Totally in love with this old-fashioned summer feel.

And because I've never met an office supply I didn't like, the 9 to 5 collection by October Afternoon was a must have.
Indie Chic by My Mind's Eye is perfect for all of my tropical vacation photos. I almost convinced myself that I 'needed' all 146 pieces of this collection, but I held back. A little.
This one I don't have yet, but it's in my bucket. Let Freedom Ring by Pebbles. Love this matching tape and the paper is just as beautiful. I'm going to use it for the Fourth, but also for some cruise pictures and baseball too.
Sweet Day by Echo Park is so pretty that I'm having a hard time using it. I keep taking it out of the package and then putting it back because I can't decide which combination of patterns I love the best. And it has this pretty fabric feel to it too.
For anyone who needs help with color in scrapbooking, I'd recommend Amy Heller's Through the Kaleidoscope class. It's top notch and I've got one spot to give away!


The giveaway starts today! Just leave me a comment telling me what your favorite collection is right now and be entered to win. I'll draw a winner a week from today and announce it right here. If you've already signed up or are just about to, no worries. Your class fee will be refunded. Best of luck!

And now on to the hop...go to  Wendy Sue Anderson's blog  to see what she has for you! If you get lost, here's a list you can follow.

  1. I'm in love with Jillibean soup right now. You can pretty much pick any of their collections and I like them.
    I'm also conveting some of my country walk paper still. Love that line for cards and pictures of me and the hubs. Great color and texture to the paper.

  2. I love the Sweet Day too. I have that collection! Just arrived yesterday. :) I love the color palette and the wonderful patterns. It is going to be hard to cut into. I am hoping that the Simple Stories summer fresh ends up in a kit for the DT I am on this summer.

    I don't know the name of the collection I like best right now (eek!), but it's the Studio Calico with the graph paper and the hexagon papers. I'm back to school getting certified to teach high school math and I'm re-taking all my math classes, so all those math-y geometrics make me all happy!
