It's the 22nd of the month, which means it's time for the monthly Gardeners' Digest blog hop! The Garden Girls over at Two Peas in a Bucket are each highlighting some awesome projects, videos, classes, and giveaways...so be sure and make a stop at each blog on the hop!
This month in the Garden we are focusing on the little things. I interpreted the theme literally, creating a page with little supplies, small photos, and incorporating the theme as the title of my page. I've also included some of the digital cut files, including the Hello Daily set, which includes the adorable little coffee mug:
1.Bella Blvd Daily Chevies collection kit ($15.99). I can't seem to get enough of chevrons - especially big, bright and bold ones! This new line from Bella delivers some fab zig zags with other simple patterns of stripes, hearts, and polka dots in happy colors perfect for lots of themes.
2. Prima Delight Brads ($4.99). I'm a big fan of metal-rimmed brads and I love that this variety pack from Prima has both round and heart-shaped embellishments. The mix of colors and graphics makes them a versatile accent to add to my stash.
3. Chalk Studio Tags by My Mind's Eye ($2.99). The chalkboard trend is popping up everywhere, but I'm especially fond of these tags. Designed by Rhonna Farrer, the set includes 15 tags (approx. 2"x3") perfect for titles, journaling, or just layering!
4. Watercolor Dip 12 x 12 Paper by Glitz Design ($0.90). I'm not quite brave enough to venture into paint and watercolor techniques on my layouts, so this patterned paper is perfect for me! It gives the look of dripping paint and ink without any mess!
5. Camera Zipper Pouch by Blue Q ($5.99). I featured this little bag on my blog a few weeks back, but it sold out quickly. Two Peas now has it restocked (along with some other really cute designs). I'm using mine to hide my good journaling pens from family members who always seem to steal them off my desk!
I'm a huge fan of my fellow Garden Girl, Jill Sprott because she not only creates beautiful layouts, but she consistently (and artfully!) incorporates heartfelt journaling and stories into her pages. Her new workshop, Scrapbooking from the Soul, explores ways to embrace the “soul scrapper” within and infuse your pages with layers of meaning. She'll share a variety of approaches and strategies for how to become more invested in creating layouts that feel authentic to you as well as authentically you.
If you'd like to be entered to win a spot in Scrapbooking from the Soul, just leave me a comment today telling me why scrapbooking is good for your soul. I'll randomly pick a winner on Monday, August 26 and announce it at the bottom of this post.
Your next destination on the hop is the blog of the talented Paige Evans, so click on over to her blog now! And have a wonderful Thursday!
Congrats to Mel J who is the winner of the spot in Scrapbooking from the Soul! Thanks to everyone who stopped by during the hop! I'll be back next month on the 22nd with September's Gardeners' Digest (and another giveaway!)
