If you are in need of some sketch inspiration, check out Practical Scrappers every Friday for some great card and layout sketches by design team members.
Here's a layout I did following this week's sketch by Pia. It's not my usual style, but that's because I used a digital stamp from Squigglefly to make the file for the Elephant. All I did was import the image into SCAL, resized and cut away on my Cricut. I opted to hand cut the patterned paper for the ears and feet, as well as the toes, just to save time and paper, but I could have done them on the cricut too. I then added a bit of shading using my Copics.
Can you believe that I haven't scrapped any ultrasound photos yet of Ethan or Parker? I have tons of them too, as I usually get one or 2 per visit from my doctor. Let's hope I can still find them!
I embossed the felt flowers with a Cuttlebug folder, and was surprised at the definition I got in the texture. I also needed something on the top flower to mimic the Flair, so I stuck an American Crafts sticker to a white brad.
