Pool Party Shoes

Hello, Friends!  Marilyn here with a tutorial to make some fun and inexpensive shoes to wear at that next pool party or maybe at the lake.

DIY Pool Party Shoes

Here's what you'll needed:
  • Blank canvas slip-ons (mine are from Walmart and cost $5.87)
slip on canvas shoes purchased at Walmart

  • Silhouette Cameo
  • Images from Miss Kate's Cuttables
  • Square 1 Printable (approx. $1 per sheet) - link available on right hand side of screen.
  • Ink Jet Printer

Use fabric glue when you are ready to make image placement permanent
Use Krylon Crystal Clear to give a nice protection to your shoes

  • Fabric Glue (available at craft stores and Walmart)
  • Krylon Crystal Clear (found at Hobby Lobby and Michaels)



Select images from Miss Kate's Cuttables.  Color and size to your preference.  Set all images to cut outside edge only, making everything a print and cut.  Add your registration marks and send to printer (loaded with Square 1 Printable first)


Load Silhouette Cameo with your printed Square 1 and cut.

Cut settings are here:

Determine where you want to place your images.  Since the Square 1 is re-positionable, you can move around until you're happy with the placement.  The Square 1 will behave like a sticker.


The waves will be longer than you need.  I just used my thumbnail and made a crease, then hand cut at groove created.

White lines were created within Silhouette using internal offset button and line type of dashed lines.

Once you're happy with the placement, permanently attach images with fabric glue.  You'll want to spray with Krylon Crystal Clear when done to give a nice protection to your shoes.



Hope you have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by, ~ Marilyn

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
