New blue shoes!

Wednesday, August 3, 2011

Hey, a mid-week post...did you notice?  I usually only have the time to create/post on the weekends.  But, I've been working on this project Monday and Tuesday evening and I just couldn't wait to post this.  If you follow my blog (I'm hoping a few people follow it...hello...anyone there?), you probably saw THIS papercrafted shoe that I made recently.  It was SO much fun to make - and embellish.  Well, after I posted a pic on FB, my friend Linda (who loves shoes) asked me to make a pair for her.  I jumped at the chance :)

This is what I gave to Linda today ~

These measure about 6" in length, and maybe 3 1/2" in height...I forgot to measure them.  By the time I'd finished making these shoes, I'd cut down the time that it takes me.  Probably 1 1/4 hours per shoe.  I enjoy it so much, that I don't mind the time that it takes.  If you want to make one of these shoes (or a pair!), I found the pattern and instructions on Creating Keepsakes website.  Click HERE for a link to the download.
So...are you going to give it a try?
Thanks for popping in, I love visitors :)

What I used:
card stock: baja breeze (Stampin' Up!)
designer series paper: springtime vintage (SU)
trim: mettalic double E loop (Wright's)
brad: recollections - Michael's
crystal effects (to prevent the ends of the trim from fraying)


  1. Totally elegant! Loving the gold touch and fab trim! Your friend will adore them!


Please leave a comment...I love to read them!
