August 2012 SFYTT


Well, it's that time again already - first Saturday of the month and time for another fabulous Sketch For You to Try!! I hope you all had a chance to play along with us last month - Lots of exciting things in store for participants of the monthly SFYTT this year, including a chance to win another fabulous huge prize package at the end of the year!! All of the details can be found on today's post over on Jen's blog, with some of the details outlined in the "In a Nutshell" graphic at the end of this post. We have another amazing sponsor this month that's very near and dear to my heart - Verve Stamps!!

First, here's a look at this month's fun sketch:

August is full of important friend birthdays for me so in trying to build up my birthday card stash I created this fun card:

All of the patterned papers are from the Cakewalk line by October Afternoon, which I'm totally loving! In place of the main rectangular panel, I used a Tagged Rectangle Die, tilting it slightly (I know, don't fall out of your chair - I hate tilted panels, but it looked weird all straight like I normally like things). Those fun balloons are from the Birthday Bash set.  I added a small and simple "Let's Party" sentiment from the Birthday Phrases set and then fancied things up with several scrappy embellishments from my stash - pom pom trim, wood veneer stars, hemp twine, etc.

Be sure to stop by the rest of the SFYTT Sisters' blogs to see what they've done with this month's sketch! And a very warm welcome to our Designer of the Month, Peggy McCurry! Don't forget to stop by her blog to see what she's created as well.
