Fun & Flirty Flip Flops

What says summer more than a new pair of flip flops? Today’s card uses our fun bold Designer Series Paper, Festive Birthday to create these fun cactus flip flops.

I’ve had several of you ask me how I created these when you saw my shoe box card HERE.

So I thought I’ve put together a video tutorial on how they are made. And I included some tips to make things easier.

Want the pattern? Well I’ve made one up just for you!

What’s Happening Here?

On a personal note I thought I’d share with you what is happening with all this wood my son, Johnathan and I  brought home on June 20th. (Click HERE to see that post).

Johnathan is always happy playing with his “toys” in the garage. (He built his garage cabinetry that you see in the background over his winter break.)

Over the weekend they finished the 12 x 12 paper storage unit.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to get painting! And you know how I dislike painting. LOL!!!

Right now, I’m trying to decide a new paint color for the classroom walls. After all, with this great cabinetry going in I need a new coat of paint, right?

I’ve got it narrowed down to two choices at this point.

A more bold one and a safe one. I’m trying to decide how crazy I want to be LOL!!! Pool Party or Sahara Sand ???? Hmmm…. what do you think? I’ve changed my mind so many times already, but these are the two I keep coming back to since I love the Island Indigo display item I already have.

What color would you choose?
