Shoe and Purse Themed Retreat

I'm just back from a wonderful weekend away at our church Women's Retreat.  This year I had the privilege of heading it up.  I had been dying to do a fun and funky, bright and cheerful type event.  So this year we took on shoes and purses.  The ironic thing is that I know nothing about fashion, name brands or anything else that's really hip.  The following are what we came up with in our pursuit to carry out a theme.

This is our invitation.
Room Decor

A couple more shoe options for bedrooms.

 Mints for pillows.


 Gift Card holder.

And one confused Deer :)


  1. I was at this wonderful retreat and enjoyed all the little goodies left in our rooms! Thank you for being such a huge part of making this retreat absolutely amazing!

  2. Did you use a pattern to make the shoes? We are considering a "Shoe" theme for our ladies retreat.

  3. I used a pattern I found online and converted it with Make the Cut to be able to cut on a 8 1/2 x11 sheet of card stock using my Cricut. If you're making them by hand, there are plenty of patterns out there. If you're going to use a die cut machine, a few companies out there have some pre-made cut files.

    Here is a printable one with instructions.

    Here is one for die cutting

    Hope that helps ;)
