Happy Friday! I’ve got a new page up in the Garden at 2peas all about Fridays. Every Friday, our Entertainment Weekly magazine comes and I sit and read it. One of my favorite rituals. Here’s the page!
Now on to the good stuff – the giveaway! My friend Lisa Truesdell (aka Gluestick Girl) has a new workshop available at 2Peas. Here’s some more info:
If you have the best intentions with mini albums – but not the best follow through – then it’s time to Divide and Conquer! Garden Girl Lisa Truesdell will walk you through the steps of using divided page protectors to turn a hodge podge of memorabilia and photos into a beautifully finished mini album. We’ll explore putting together a kit to work from, selecting what photos and keepsakes will make the cut, and fun techniques perfect for this style of book. Lisa also has lots of tips on keeping your motivation up & making the process fun until the last embellishment is in place, and will be sharing a peek at additional sample layouts from three other contributors, each working with a different themed album.
This self -paced workshop will let you work at your own speed through the chapters – each chapter is accompanied by a helpful PDF walking you through the process and a 10-minute video sharing a closer look at how Lisa’s album came together. These videos are technique-based and will explore creating a die-cut cover, working with transparencies to build a two-sided layout, making custom sized page protectors and techniques for working with pockets.
Lisa is using the Simple Stories Documented 6×8 Mix & Match Mini Album
available for purchase separately, however, these same principles may be applied to an album of any size using divided page protectors.
The content of this workshop will be available immediately upon purchase. The lessons are available for you to work at your own pace and upon purchase can be accessed in the “Workshops” section under “Classes & Events.” A private message board forum is also available to ask questions for Lisa and to connect with other participants. Enjoy!
Lisa is so talented and super patient and fun and I know this will be a great class! Please leave me comment with your 2Peas username and I’ll draw a winner Sunday. If you’ve already purchased a seat you can still enter and have the option to have your money refunded or give your spot away to a friend. Good luck!
I’ll get your info out to Jamie at 2Peas Audrey so you can get started. Congrats and thanks to everyone who entered!
