August Sketch For You To Try - Kraftin' Kimmie


It's the first Saturday in August, which means, yay ... it's time for a brand-new sketch for you to try! I don't know about you, but I've really enjoyed having the sketches posted monthly this year (as opposed to weekly in the past). Jen is already planning next year's SFYTT, so take a minute to give her your feedback!

I've also enjoyed the sponsor companies we've had this year -- this month's sponsor, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, being no exception!



The Moonlight Whispers line is especially fun, which is where this sweet little bookworm, Lucy, can be found.



Here's your August sketch:


And here are links to some fabulous sketchy interpretation from the SFYTT Sisters and special August guest, Tenia Nelson. Welcome, Tenia!!

Jen del Muro with August guest designer Tenia Nelson 





1. The SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY {SFYTT} will be posted on the first Saturday of each month on www.iheart2stamp.com at 8am EST and will stay open to participants until the last day of the month, unless otherwise noted.
2. This is for fun! Interpret the sketch as you wish and embellish as desired. There are no vendor restrictions, but we would love to see you use the sponsor’s stamps!
3. Each month we will have a Designer of the Month that will be chosen from past month’s participants.
4. Come and play with us on each and every sketch! On Christmas Day 2011 a prize package worth over $200 will be given away to one very lucky and loyal SFYTT stamper that participates in EVERY sketch for the year.
5. To be eligible for the prize package, you must complete ALL of the sketches by each of the deadlines AND link your creation to the link system on that month’s sketch post (the first Saturday of the month). Everyone except for SFYTT Sisters are eligible for the prize package, including Designer of the Month and international players.
6. When posting your sketch creation on your blog, please post the sketch and link back to the sketch post on www.iheart2stamp.com. When posting to online galleries, please use the keyword “SFYTT.”


Have a great weekend! Happy stamping!!

Great job! Love all the different elements especially the little read banner at the bottom. Very cute! Your coloring is wonderful too.

Jen Tapler said...

OH Amy! This is perfect, as always! She is so cute and I'm super jealous of your coloring skills (I avoid people coloring like the plague!). I especially love the "read" banner - filing that little bit away for future use!

Great card - you rocked the sketch Amy, and that cute bunting with the 'read' message is adorable ;)
