the gardeners' digest is a monthly blog hop from the garden girls at two peas in a bucket. we'll be sharing what we're working on, what's inspiring us, and some of our favorite products each month. i'm looking forward to getting a little peek into all of the other garden girls' brains! =)
august is all about back to school at this month, and all of our new back to school pages went up on monday! here's to NOT starting this school year with a cast, right?? the red in the photo inspired me to use it as an accent - i love how it pops against the neutrals and aquas. you can see all of our school projects here.
i am just a smidge obsessed with this page by the newest garden girl, lexi bridges. how cool are all those circles??? i am super excited to have lexi in the garden and can't wait to see her work each month!
or more accurately, five products that are in my bucket right now, waiting for me to hit BUY. =)
1. pieces of me workshop kit : the book that i contributed to the class was made from my own supplies, but i've had my eye on this kit since it came out. thinking it's time to grab it. =)
2. ali's new journaling cards : these are perfect for project life and for pages - i love that they're two sided!
3. simple stories simple basics : lately i can't seem to scrap on a cardstock background and am always looking to grab more ledgers and grids. this pack will be perfect - and as a bonus, the A sides are cute, too!
4. elle's studio stamps : i really can't pick which ones are my favorite, but i can't wait to get them!
5 silver and gold star washi tape : yes. more washi. yes. i'm addicted.

Memories fade quickly and making sure we include all our stories within our scrapbooks can seem daunting. In this Mini Workshop, Garden Girl Jen Gallacher shares her approach for meaningful journaling. Jen is a dedicated journal keeper and has kept personal journals for over 30 years (ever since she was old enough to write). Now she combines her love of record keeping with scrapbooking! This journaling-centered class covers topics from holidays, to day-to-day events, to family moments, and several often forgotten subjects.
Chapter 1: Special Events
Chapter 2: Day-to-Day Living
Chapter 3: Stories to Remember
Each chapter includes 10 BRAND NEW layouts for a total of 30 layouts. An instructional video is provided for each chapter in which Jen discusses her philosophy on journaling each memory, as well as, her creative approach to journaling design. Each chapter video highlights the start-to-finish process of one of the chapter layouts. Watch Jen select the photos, journal her story, and complete a layout all under 30 minutes!
Beyond mere journaling, Jen discusses challenges to telling the story, creative methods for incorporating journaling on the page, and product suggestions for a fresh approach to journaling design. A helpful PDF is provided for each chapter and combines into a complete, comprehensive guide to meaningful journaling. Each layout is highlighted on its own page and includes the complete supply list, a close-up photo, and the approach to both documenting the story and the design of the journaling. Additional materials found within the PDF include topic ideas, journaling product ideas, and tips and tricks for journaling.
Whether you're an experienced writer looking to incorporate journaling into your scrapbooks, or you struggle with knowing what to say on your pages, this workshop's for you! Never leave "words unsaid" again!
