Monthly Sketch - August 2010

Welcome to August - I hope you are enjoying your summer, even though the days are already getting shorter.
Then again, that gives us more time to spend in the craft room, right?

If you need something to kick start your mojo, why not have a look at this months' sketch and the DT Examples (you can enlarge the view of each image by clicking onto it). We were all very excited to get creative with the new lines AVALANCHE and HOME SWEET HOME.

I fancied using the winter-based papers from AVALANCHE first, probably because it is so hot here that I could do with a little cooling down :)

UDD Products used:
#AVA015. Summit; #AVA014. Powder; #AVA012. Extreme


ANDREA shows us that papers with a winter theme are perfect for any season with this fun layout of her son (I whole heartedly agree with Logan's love for jelly beans, by the way)
UDD Products used:


TRACEY chose to use papers from HOME SWEET HOME and did she not do amazing? Fantastic layering and the tree is such a fun element.
UDD Products used:

SANDI also used HOME SWEET HOME to create this gorgeous layout focussing on family. Isn't the title fabulous?

UDD Products used:
#UDD124. Classy Brown Alpha Rub Ons

GRACE also made use of the HOME SWEET HOME line and created a wonderful set of cards based on the sketch. Aren't they just fabulous?

We hope we were able to inspire you with our take on this months' sketch. Why not play along with us and link us to your take on the sketch in the comments section? We would love you see what you create and leave you some love.

Don't forget that we have a DT CALL going and that you can also stay on top of everything Upsy Daisy Designs through our FACEBOOK page.
