Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Carriage


I’ve made two of the new adorable templates for you to see.

First is the High Top Baby Sneakers … the Sneakies!

I made the Sneakies with some Pink Velour paper & the kids have asked that their Build-a-Bears get a pair too!

Next was probably my favourite of all the beautiful templates.  So quick to make & so little girl presentable!

It’s the Carriage:

The carriage opens up to put a treat inside:

Can I say how much I LOVE Adela’s 3D templates … I ADORE THEM.

Thanks to Adela from Creations By AR for all this FUN!

Those High Heels

Time for Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #76, North By Northwest.

Great movie.  We’ve seen it a few times, just one of those classic Hitchcock movies.  Cary Grant & Eva Marie Saint–aren’t they just the most cool fashion-stylin’ actors?  Just screaming vogue.  For my card, this is the snippit from the movie that I took my inspiration, specifically Eva Marie Saint’s shoes.

I am not a shoe person, really, I wear birk’s all summer long, but I did have a pair of these shoes for my high school prom.  Italian, spent $90 on them, on sale, over 20 years ago.  I loved them.  They were identical to Eva Marie’s.

Sure Cuts a Lot Software has been so much fun for me.  I drew up a shoe in illustrator, saved it as an SVG & then used SCAL Software to talk to my little Cricut machine.  It was cut out on white & then Versa marked & embossed in Black EP.  I suppose my card is more of a Cut Out, rather than a piercing; hopefully it’s still okay I played along.  I did have fun with it.  Here’s my card:

Before drawing up the shoe, I took a peek of what was already out there & here are some examples I looked at.  Hope you can find some inspiration with these shoe cards too:

Making Greeting


Shirleys Cards

My Sheri Cards


The card is layered a little to give it depth & strength.  I think there are actually 5 layered cuts of the shoe.

The Pattered Papers is DSP from Stampin’ Up.  A Little Love SU Stamp Set was used in Riding Hood Red Ink & oval punches.

Thanks for the fun inspiration, Cinema folks!

Here’s the shoe I drew …

Oh yes, & here I am in the fancy prom dress & pearls my mum bought for me, earrings my cousin Cheryl gave me, updo salon hair, Brooke Shields eyebrows & my shoes that I oh so loved in 1990 …

Baby Shoes.

Paper Craft Planet Colour Inspiration (PCP 17) was to make something baby-like using So Saffron, Kraft, Vanilla & Close to Cocoa.  I didn’t have a pram stamp so I thought I’d try something else.  These shoes are so tiny, 1 fits in your palm, so maybe they could hold a couple of chocolates?  Dunno, I just thought the template from Donovan was so darn cute.

EDITED:  If the Donovan Website seems to be down you should be able to find the template HERE.

If you take your time at it, rather than rush though it in 15 minutes like I did, you will definitely have a neater pair of shoes.

The template was easy enough to use, be sure to use super sticky tape.  I find it easier just to print out on printer paper & then tape that to the DSP.  We have a temperamental printer, that has chewed up many a DSP … sniff, sniff.  So that’s why I just tape on the negative spaces …

Used:  Kraft CS, So Saffron CS, Close To Cocoa CS, MM Buttons, Close to Cocoa Marker, Super Sticky Tape, 1/16″ hole punch, Flower Punches (SU), template from Donovan.
