giveaway | amy tan's collect and create workshop at two peas in a bucket

Last month I was a little extra-busy with two special projects. One of them I've already talked about- Everyday Storyteller- and the other is this:

Yes! I'm one of the contributors to Amy Tan's new Collect + Create Workshop at Two Peas in a Bucket! And the fun part? I get to give away one spot in the class to one of my readers!

Here's a bit more about the workshop, straight from Amy and Two Peas:
As crafters and storytellers, we are natural collectors. We save everything from treasured products and pieces from our everyday lives, to scraps and sketches. Incorporating these elements and all of our favorite bits from life are essential to the process of creating. I want to help you create with what you collect!

In this self-paced class, my contributors and I will show you over 50 brand-new projects! Five chapters covering a range of topics are each supplemented with a printable PDF providing step-by-step photos and in-depth looks at the process behind the pages. Get your creative juices going with the "extras" in the PDF's like challenges and tips, and be inspired by the video in each chapter covering even more examples and tutorials!

Collect + Create explores different styles, as well as my favorite go-to techniques like embossing, using up scraps, incorporating real memorabilia, misting, mixing products and colors, and using sketches. Join me and together we'll create a whole new collection - pages and projects we love!
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 Amy and to connect with other participants. Enjoy!

Special promotion: When you purchase this workshop before April 12th, you'll receive a FREE printable PDF made up of Amy's label and border designs! Find it in the "My: Downloads" section upon purchase, click on the Digikit tab, print and enjoy. You'll want to hurry, this is a limited time offer!

I have three layouts in the workshop for a total of five pages (one of those layouts is a 3-pager!), and here's just a tiny peek at one of them:

The cost of this workshop, packed with content and video, is $25, and one of my readers will be receiving a spot for free! If you'd like to enter, just leave a comment here (please include your 2Peas user name if you have one) by 8am CST Friday morning, April 13 (yes, it will be a lucky Friday the 13th for someone :) ), and I'll contact the winner and announce them in my Friday Favorites post that afternoon.

Oh, and if you've already signed up for the workshop or want to go ahead and purchase a seat to take advantage of the special promotion ending on the 12th, 2 Peas will either refund your tuition or let you give the seat to a friend should you be chosen as the winner- it's all good!
