Dressed to Impress Bundle by Stampin' Up!


What is "PAPER PIECING?" It's similar to quilting with paper. Designer papers are cut and put together to create a design. These polka dot high heels are a perfect example!! Each shoe was stamp on polka dot paper and again on yellow paper from the Best Dress 6 X 6" Designer Series Paper #151319. Then they were die cut and fussy cut to create the two colors on a single shoe to look like fun contrasting shoe lining!!



This is the ultimate GIRLY bundle, Dressed to Impress Bundle #153832!!




So many cute feminine options in this bundle!! Try it!!
