If the Shoe Fits... Tag


It's time for me to share another fun project for the awesome challenge blog Whimsical Wednesday.  This time around the challenge is to make a tag - and you must use bling.  Isn't that FUN?!  Be sure and visit Whimsical Wednesday today to see what the other gals came up with - and to enter your own creation :)

For my project I cut a tag from the Wrap it Up cartridge at 5 inches.  The shape kind of reminded me of a shopping bag.  I added a strip of purple bling along the top.  I also added little green bling in 4 of the corner areas - and then went around with a Sakura gel pen in the color Green Star!  Such a stunning effect.

I stamped the sentiment "If the shoe fits... but it in every color" from Pink By Design's Shopaholic Set.  I just love all the fun and girlie sayings in that set.

I added some blue polka dotted ribbon from my stash near the top of the tag.

I cut 3 different color combinations of shoes from the Cricut American Alphabet cartridge on the E2.  I cut them all at 2.5 inches.  I took each one and added Diamond Stickles to the swirl on the heel.  Then I added 3 pieces of bling with my Irock to the holes in the front of the shoe. 

I added the shoes to the tag starting at the bottom and stacking them.  They just sort of nestled perfectly together.

I hope you enjoy my fun and ultra girlie project today!  Now head on over to Whimsical Wednesday to see more inspiration and share your own fabulous work :)

Hi Amber!. Now this is my kind of project...anything that involves shoes. These are fabulous colors and I would like a pair of each. I wear a size 6. LOL
I really like the way you put the shoes on the tag. I would have never thought to line them up like that. It looks sooooooo good. Great Job!!!

Oh my goodness Amber- this is off the hook fantastic! My daughters & I both love it so much. Those shoes in different colors...AWESOME but the bling brings it to another level!
Super job. I really love the shape of the tag because it does mimic a shopping bag. High end tag for a high end, class act crafter!
Wonderful!
