One shoe can change your life!

...Just ask Cinderella!!  ;-]

Your desire to tell the good news about peace
should be like SHOES on your feet.
Ephesians 6 : 15

Hello and Welcome!  I’m excited to be doing this, my sixth post in conjunction with a group I recently connected with after I began using my new-last-summer Silhouette CAMEO cutting machine.  It’s a monthly post to showcase projects that members of the Silhouette Challenge Group have made using these wonderful machines.  You'll find a list at the end here of those who are participating this month, so you can visit them, also!

For this month’s project, I made a lady’s 3D High Heeled Shoe to go with the Clutch I made a few weeks ago in connection with ‘ Giveaway and Post’ for this week.  It’s now the second time they’ve offered this – and the second time I’ve joined in the fun!  They offer a cutting file for free – we make the project and post – they send us a Coupon for a FREE Set of files! Terrific!

Here are photos of my previous - and now this project.  I thought I’d ‘make a set’ – for a modern Cinderella, of course!  The shoe is not a Glass slipper, but there is only one at this point – and it would take ‘just the right lady’ to wear it properly…and Elegantly…  (MY hand is raised!!)  I admit it.  Shoes are one of my weaknesses.  Perhaps it stems from childhood when I had to wear ‘special order shoes that tied,’ so they would stay on my extremely narrow feet – when others around me could wear loafers and other types of cute slip-ons.  I love ‘especially elegant’ high heels and usually wear heels ALL of the time in some form or another…  When I saw this File, I was ecstatic and anxious to get and make it!  This Giveaway was the perfect opportunity -   

I made them in ‘my signature colors’ – Lavender, Black and White.  It was suggested that one make the Base of the shoe in a similar color to the exterior pieces to blend them together.  I decided to make them in contrasting colors for a more dramatic effect.  I used hand-written stitching on white and then added black satin ribbon, also, to coordinate the items.

I’ll plan to use both items as ‘props’ when I do Cookie Lee Jewelry Parties – showing off some of the lovely jewelry with them – and showing what can be done with ‘just paper!’  ;-}

Here are the files used for these projects –

I hope you have enjoyed your visit here.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me -
