The Red Shoes

Hi Everyone, This is Erika from http://www.ekittyscraps.blogspot.com/.  Today I would like to share with you my layout entitled "The Red Shoes".   This layout is a part of a Wedding Scrapbook I am making for my Stepson Michael and his new Bride Claire for their first wedding anniversary.  They had interesting wedding colors of Champagne and of course Red!  
 
Here is a sneak peak of the Red Cricut Shoe:
My first step was to cut out the Red Shoes using the Wedding/Marriage cartridge and cut 2 shoes at 4.5 inches and 2 shoes at 2 inches.  I also cut this in black to make a shadow image behind the shoe.  This image also seemed to match perfectly with the Bride and Maid of Honor's shoes. 

I used my Martha Stewart punch and punched a scallop border across the top and bottom of my paper and adhered the paper to my gold paper background.  I cut out gold and black frames for my pictures using Coredinations paper.  Black frames are always good to use with formal pictures.

  After adhering my pictures to the LO, I cut the words "The Red Shoes" using my Cursive 101 cartridge on 1.5 inches.  I wanted these words to be seperated so I did not use my gypsy this time. 
I attached the words and a K & C wedding journaling tag with gray organza ribbon to my LO.  I added several Floral Cream Velvet Hydrangeas from Petaloo to my LO for a more wedding/formal look.  I also added some gold bling to the red cricut shoes.     


I really enjoyed making this LO and I hope you liked it too.  I hope to show you more from the Wedding Scrapbook in the future.  Have a good day and if you have any questions, please leave me a comment.  Thanks!
