You didn’t think I would create a “Mary and Laura” dress for Holly last week and then not use the Walnut Grove Digital Collection at AC Digitals did you? Of course I did…and I LOVED the papers in this kit! (As usual, though, I never quite know what to do with elements.)
6×12 insert for the week, front and back shown together–but will be two 6×12 pieces:
What we were up to this week: The photos probably say it all! It seems like ages ago now, but for three solid days I was cutting, pinning, measuring, and sewing that dress with my Aunt Holly by my side. By far the most ambitious project I have ever done on the sewing machine, and also the best. I LOVE how it turned out, as does Holly. After all of that was done, and my Aunt Holly went home, we were back to our normal routine of school, naps, playdates, chasing kids, and hanging out in the neighborhood. It was a really fun week. (Minus the day I collapsed with exhaustion of course. Sewing will do that to me.)
Techniques used this week: I am not sure if it’s a true technique (I am unaware of the official name unless you go with what Tara Whitney calls it), but I intentionally took the bonfire photo out of focus. I love the feeling I get when I look at it…it actually looks like a memory doesn’t it?
Other thoughts: I am completely addicted to 6×12 inserts. I think this is already my fifth one of the year. I will be showing my physical album, with all of the inserts, the first week of April. I have shown a few here, but not all, because they tend to take me a lot longer to get around. I decided that showing them all quarterly would be an easier deadline for me to stick to.
Supplies used this week: Most of the items are listed in the icons below. The Week Nine circle came from September Blue’s blog and was, at the time, a free download. It’s $2.99 now, but I still think that’s a great deal for 52 elements. I absolutely love those elements! My favorite new find of the week was Nettio Design’s cards–they are going to be so awesome for my instagrams!!!
