New Shoes for Christmas and a Giveaway!



Hello All,
I have had a great day of crafting in my art room. I have a few more Jane Austen ornaments done and will show them tomorrow night at Deck The Halls Sunday blog hop hosted here at Artful Affirmations.

Today I wanted to share with you a Christmas gift idea. How about a Shoe and maybe a purse too,
for your artsy friend made by you? This pair is for a friend of mine.


Crafty Secrets has a new CD out called Creating With Vintage Illustrations. I has over 200 illustrations and all kinds of  high quality papers. I created this shoe and purse from a divine pattern you can print off from this CD! Wow! I am totally in love with this paper and would love to paper a room with it! The purse pattern is also on this CD.

I have a free video tutorial on my sidebar on how to create this shoe.
It is perfect for tucking in little goodies, like vintage laces, ribbons and fibers....or any small gift.
The purse was designed by Cindy, and is easy and fun to create.
You could use it as a gift card holder, or for small photographs, or a letter, poem, or $$$!



Crafty Secrets asked if they could put my Elegant Shoe template on this CD and I said yes. They kindly sent me the CD and more to give away! Yay for you! So today I am beginning my
Holiday Giveaway Extravaganza starting off with this fabulous CD!!!
 
Creating with Vintage Illustrations CD #2

Click on the link in the image above to go directly to the shoppe.


I love creating these little shoes! It is so fun to choose a colorways and to add little touches.


I love receiving hand made gifts from my friends and family. They are so special to me.


Creative Secrets added this gorgeous heel! Didn't they do a fabulous design job on it?


Just an idea. I am working on several Christmas gifts right now too.
How is your Holiday gift crafting coming along?

If you would like to win this fantastic CD just leave a comment and how to reach you. 
I will be posting more giveaway items for my Holiday Giveaway Extravaganza!

Hugs,
Terri

Lovely give away, I hope I have almost finished all the presents, little things I add to the larger stuff, mostly things to go on the tree, just so busy trying to get it and the baking done.

missmacymay said...

It is Crafty Secrets not Creative Secrets CD you will be giving away to the girl who caught your typo and has made your shoes before and given them to her dear friends but if I had this CD I would make a ton more. Thanks for the opportunity.

cmoh said...

Teri this is just stunning! I am always amazed at how much and the quality of work you do, you are so inspring.

Quick question what type of printer do you have, the CD sounds fabulous but when I print things out they arn't very pretty. I think it's time to look into a higher quality printer.

The giveaway is fabulous and so generous please include me!

Hope you are having a wonderful holiday season!

Hugs
Caroline

Diane said...

Terri, everything looks beautiful! I love the papers you've chosen - so feminine!

I received a reply from Coats & Clark about the twisting metallic thread. I posted it on my blog today.

http://dianeknottsmusings.blogspot.com

It isn't much of a solution, but maybe worth a try if you want to add another procedure to your work. It seems awkward to me. Let me know how it works for you!

Hugs, Diane

I'm so glad I discovered your blog of vintage stylings (Thanks to Tim and Mario and their link to the bleached brush trees).

Marti McClure said...

Hi Terri:

I just love your blog and your shoes! I also make what I call paper fairie shoes. I was lucky enough to visit Paris in October and it was wonderful to view your French Friday posts, and to relive the experience through your photos. It looks like we went to many of the same places, and I went to the same fabric stores as you. I loved that part of town. My girlfriend bought a wonderful painting from one of the artists in Montemarte. I joined as a follower today. Thanks so much for all of your inspiration and your wonderful blog giveaways!

Marti
