Ice Skates

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. It is time for Scrapy Land challenge #33, our first challenge of the New Year. The challenge is our favorite one "anything goes" and you need to use die cuts the Scrapy Land sales in the store.

Scrapy Land has over 40 brands of dies.  You can see them all here.   Please link your project back to this Scrapy Land Challenge Blog.  It would also be extremely helpful if you would list the brands of dies used in your project.

The die cut I used is from Sizzix Bigz L Brenda Walton and Sizzix Tim Holtz alterations snow flurries. Their is a Video to help you to make the Ice Skates and I want to share that with you.
This is not fun but of course I could not get the video to upload here but I did get it to upload just under this posting so if you would like to watch the video it is only a 5 minutes long and you can see how easy it is to make the Ice Skates. If you have any questions PLEASE ask.

I used eyelets for adding the skates ties.
Here you can see Tim Holtz snow flurries. Added some gems to some of the centers.
Added a couple pom poms to the ends of the ties.
To be able to add so much glitter and sparkle I used Foam sheets called Foamies glitter sheets colors magenta, red silver and gold. Used lots of Stickles glitter glue colors used are Xmas red, gold, silver, black diamond, star dust and orange.
This is the inside of the card. The papers I used is from my Christmas scraps. All you need to do is fold a sheet of 12" by 12" in half and line it up with the ice skates area (shoe area) and you can cut it out. For the inside I did cut 2 of them and glued them together.
This is a fabric sentiment I had in my scraps.
These are some bards I found in with my stuff.
More stuff I found.
This is the left side of the inside.
This is the right side of the inside. Added some tiny snow flakes to the holds.

Now you know I made the card so I had to try and make the ornament and this is what I did.

It is all pretty much the same.
Added some pine cones and some red ribbon this time. Used red and gold and will save this for next years tree. Some red gems and Xmas red Stickles glitter glue. Wrapped the red ribbon around the holds for laces.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I love your comments so if you have time please leave something.  I'm sorry I'm having problems with Window Live Writer, it is not working right and they are having some problems so I have to use Blogger to post and I normally do not do that so until they get this fixed I will need to use Blogger. To be honest I do not know what one is worst. I just can not get rid of these boxes a round my pictures????
