KinderStampO Design Team Sketch Thursday

Here we are on a Thursday and it is once again my turn for the Sketch project for KinderStampO Design Team.
This is the sketch for this week.  I'm thinking, hmmmmm, how to dress this up a bit so it is more me?
This is what I came up with.  I added a bit to it, as I usually do, and blinged it up a bit.  I love this Authentique Seasons collection even tho' it has a base of pink. Yes, I said I liked the pink in this collection.  However, you see that I used more of the teal whenever I could, LOL. 
Love my Petaloo flowers and even had a pink one left over in my stash from Prima.  I actually cut out the flags in the Tim Holtz metal holder from the right bottom of the paper and covered the gap with a scrap of paper and lots of flowers.  I used a piece of scrap lace for the bow. Below you will see close ups of the other areas of the layout that added more POP.
Lace wrapped around the photo mat with twine bows.
I ran twine along the flags I cut out to make them pop more.
Fussy cutting--don'tcha love it?  Not really, but I did cut out the signs and the bottom of the umbrella handle so the pic could slide underneath.
Hop on over to to see more fun projects from other design team members.

On another note for the store:  
75% OFF SALE!!!!
The sale bins will be gone when the store opens Friday so I decided to mark them down to 75% off one last day.
Remember, the store is open until
8:00 p.m. tonight,
so you have plenty of time to take advantage
of these exceptional savings.



  1. Great job on the sketch and layout! I really like the banner and how you cut the umbrella handle to overlap the pic. I also like how you used twine to give the words some dimension! I love the grouping of flowers in the corner! Nice touch to use the lace ribbon with twine tied in bows. I can't wait for this paper to come in!

  2. Cat, this is beautiful. You know I'm not a big fan of pink either, but this paper is beautiful with all of the greens and just a touch of pink. I love the twine between the banners...adds just a touch of texture. Great job, as always.
