GIVEAWAY | One person will win a spot in Amy Tan’s Mix It Up class at Two Peas in a Bucket. If you have already purchased this class, your money will be refunded or you can give it away to a friend. (Please leave your Two Peas username in your comment)

ABOUT | Globetrotting fashion and scrapbook designer Amy Tan not only loves to mix up the undertakings of her never-boring career and the scenery through her lens, but her scrapbook pages and projects! In this mini workshop, Amy will teach you how to keep your creativity fresh and exciting by mixing up your supplies, photos and projects. With her eclectic and colorful style, mixer-upper-expert Amy will equip you with:

•    3 Chapters showcasing 25+ layouts
•    30 Mix formulas for your pages and photos
•    25+ minutes of video including tutorials and insights from Amy
•    48 helpful PDF pages that include tips and an in-depth look at each layout and project.
•    Bonus cut files, a project planner worksheet + more!

Amy’s carefree and relaxed approach to creating is contagious; you’ll feel as though you’re scrapbooking right alongside with her in her living room (with her beloved Buster and Bamboo at your feet!). Create perfectly-embellished layouts you love when you use Amy’s tips for mixing up your supplies. Give your layouts an unexpected twist when you vary the photos you capture. And finally, prevent creative ruts by changing up the projects you tackle. Follow Amy Tan’s lead and get ready to mix it up!

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!

GIVEAWAY | One (1) person will win a digital copy of my book Life Artist which is now available as a downloadable PDF for $10

Originally published in 2007, this book covers the basic tenets of my memory keeping philosophy. In looking back over the book as I prepped the PDF I was struck by how timeless the concepts are and how they are still the things that I focus on today: going with the flow, embracing imperfection, play, it’s ok, celebrating the everyday, finding your voice and telling your story.

Read more or purchase on my Life Artist page. You can also read additional reviews or order the soft-cover edition via Amazon (this book is out of print but you can still find both new and used copies via Amazon).

TO BE ENTERED into this giveaway please leave a comment below (if you are reading this post on Facebook please come to my blog to leave a comment). Comments will be closed at 8pm Pacific on Sunday, April 7th. The winners will be announced on Monday, April 8th. Please be sure to check back or subscribe (click here to get posts delivered to your email box) to see if you are receiving one of the items.

    Complete awesomeness. How ironic that I was looking at those lockers last night, also on Amy’s blog, and had my paper copy of your book flipping through to start scrapbooking again. Craziness. And AWESOME.
