Winter Woodland Skating Layout

The Bitten By the Bug 2 has a challenge going on that uses the Winter Woodland Cricut Cartridge.  Since I have that cartridge I thought I would do an 8x8 layout.  I have lots of fond memories of skating.  We didn't have rink, on the farm we used the overflow from the stock tanks or the stock tanks themselves. 


I stamped with clear embossing ink the polka dots and used clear embossing powder. I stamped the two smaller snowflakes from the Snow Swirled set on the pink cardstock then inked the edges of white cardstock.  The skates are cut out at 2" and layered.  I hand cut the bows off of them because I wanted to add my own.  I used some embroidery floss that is not separated for the laces and used glossy accents to glue them to the skate. 


I used the lined stamp from Notes and Details to make a journal spot and stamped with the small snowflake on the side.  Each page is similar in design I just changed the sizes a little bit. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Like the ice skating layout. Especially like the use of the floss for tying. I learned to ice skate when I moved here to Central TX when I took a basic ice skating class at an indoor rink inside a mall. Enjoyed it so much that when the basic class was over I signed up for new level basic jumps & spins. Have a nice day.
