Um Wow July Sketch

If you have not had the pleasure of checking out UmWow Studio and their awesome chipboard pieces, then you must! They have now also added new FLAIR pieces which are so nice. I love the quality of them! You never know what they will come out with next (she's already added some more flair sets that I love)!  UmWow Studio also has a blog with a monthly sketch challenge. Since I have a couple of orders of delicious chipboard and a set of flair (wildflower, if you were curious), I decided to join in.

I had seen DeeDee post a layout not long ago and loved the design of it so I was excited to see that the sketch was based off of that layout!

This is the sketch:

And this is my layout:

I love how this looks! As you can see, I used a much larger photo than the sketch called for. I decided to make that center white paper from the sketch into a photo. But then my photo wasn't quite tall enough so added patterned paper to the top and bottom to fill in that same space. I also shifted the title and embellishment down and to the right. I think keeping the side paper parts and the vertical strip embellishment really gives my version the same feel as the sketch.

Here you can see my Um Wow Studio embellishments. I used the layered butterfly frames and backed them with paper and added two tiny hearts from the heart confetti. I used a polaroid frame also with some confetti hearts inside. And I used a flair from the wildflower set.

The papers and other embellishments used are all from the Pebbles 'Sunny Side' collection. One of my current faves. I can't wait to use it some more!


  1. I love the color combo and the butterflies!!! Great LO Nina!!

  2. GREAT layout, Nina! Love the color combo you used...And love how you interpreted the sketch. Again, GREAT job!!!

  3. Cute LO, love the over-sized picture. Great use of the chippies too, love that heart confetti, need to get some!

  4. I like the way you altered the sketch to suit your large picture. Great layout!


I love comments! Just be kind please :)
