A day late–but so many good photos this week! After two weeks of hardly having enough photos to fill a two-page spread, this week it was hard to narrow down what to use. Needless to say, I have already sent my print order off to walgreens for my three inserts! (And speaking of inserts–I really do plan on sharing my entire album for this year so far–it’s 100% caught up, even last week’s pages are back from Persnickety. I just haven’t quite figured out how to do it. If I take photos of it it will take forever to prep and write a blogpost, but if I video tape a tour of it all I worry about it being blurry. Seriously, I hope to figure it out soon!)
What we were up to this week: Dealing with some crazy weather! The title card gives you the lowdown–we started the week off with snow, and ended up spending the entire weekend outside enjoying 70-80 degree temperatures. I got three words for you–Minnesota is crazy. We had a lot of fun outside–particularly at the end of the week when it was warmer. Playdates, bike rides, walks to the soda fountain, trips to the park, BBQs, and bonfires. Oh yes, summer is on it’s way.
Techniques used this week: Lots of recoloring, lots of brushes per my usual. I did create a title card using a combination of things I have collected over the years. The 4×6 template is free from Paislee Press (I added drop shadows), and the twill is an oldie but goodie from Ali Edwards. The Monday and Sunday brushes were part of Studio Calico’s Day by Day class, and the calendar brush is by Splendid Fiins. I decided that because I had so many photos I was going to combine my calendar card with the title card this week–really like how it turned out! I never did figure out where to put the “Week of” wording I usually use, but oh well. At least when I look at it later I will know what the dates of the spread included!
Other thoughts: I love the Jade kit. This week came together really fast, in no small part because of the fantastic colors and cards in the kit. I actually have the paper version of this kit as well–it’s so versatile and looks great even for two little girls! I honestly don’t know how any of you (who buy physical kits) are going to be able to decide on one or two to purchase. Go digital my friends and get them all!!!
Supplies used this week: Most of the items are listed in the icons below. The little calendar is by Splendid Fiins who is in the process of moving from jessicasprague.com to the-lilypad.com. I am not sure when the move is final, be sure to check her blog for the latest info. The “this makes my heart happy” flag was in Wild Blueberry Ink kit from last month’s daily digi subscription. As always I am linking up to the mom creative for Project Life Tuesdays.
