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.
