Ho Ho Ho Holiday Hop!

Ho Ho Ho Holiday Hop!

Whoo Hoo! Its a holiday hop! Its that time of year where we all get Festive! You may have come to here today from Mary's blog. If you've come here outside of the hop and you don't want to miss any of the holiday projects featuring Creations by AR templates you can start at the beginning by visiting Lisa's blog.

For the Holiday hop I used the Creations by AR House Box and Ornament template to make a Winter Frost ornament. (I haven't gotten my Christmas tree yet so I couldn't display the ornament hanging on a tree.) You could fill this ornament with candy and give it as a gift, or even include a flameless tea light.

You know I almost wasn't going to participate in this hop because on Thanksgiving I hurt my back and I have doctor's orders to take it easy! If you know me, you know that I don't sit down when I'm crafting! So making this project sitting down was a different experience for me!

Ornament

I put "snowflakes" on the roof!

Ornament2

I know its not my best work 🙁

Hopefully I'll be "back" on track soon enough!

I used the following Stampin' UP! products: Winter Frost DSP, Silver Glimmer Paper, Coastal Cabana Cardstock, Petite Curly Label Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, 1" Square Punch, Silver 1/8" ribbon, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Multipurpoase Glue.
Other: flameless tea light

Let’s get Crafty!

Let’s get Crafty!

Let's get Crafty is the theme. You know I never know what I'm
going to make. Then I go into my craft room and see what trouble I can
brew up!

You may have come to here today from Diana's
blog. If you've come here outside of
the hop and you don't want to miss any of the exciting projects featuring Creations by AR templates you can
start at the beginning by visiting Lisa's blog.

I've used the Crafter's Apron template before, but this time I used the inserts to hold my Spritzers!

I hadn't used my Simply Created banner kits I got but I saw the
opportunity to use one of the pre-printed and die cut pieces on this
crafty project!I gave the spiders some "bling" along the bottom.

I chose the beware tag as a way of saying "hands off" my spritzers!I used the DXF template file so I could cut the pieces on my Silhouette.
I like to show
off more of the base color, so as usual I cut the template shorter.

HalloweenSpritzers

For this project I used the following Stampin' UP! products: Simply Created Halloween Banner Accessory Kit, Witches Brew DSP, Pumpkin Pie Card Stock, Halloween Bash Stamp Set, Whisper White Craft Ink, Champagne Glitter Paper, Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Stampin Dimensionals,
Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Bone
Folder, Scallop Oval Punch, Extra Large Oval Punch, Rhinestone Basic Jewels

I hope you liked this crafty project using the Creations by AR Craft Apron
template. The templates are wonderful and the directions are always very easy to understand!

Mom’s Favorite Color – Creations by AR Blog Hop

Mom’s Favorite Color – Creations by AR Blog Hop

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by! You may have come to here today from Carmen's
blog. If you've come here outside of
the hop and you don't want to miss any of the exciting projects featuring Creations by AR templates you can
start at the beginning by visiting Lisa's blog.

Its a Mother's Day theme – Mom's Favorite color. I had a hard time deciding what template to use to make something for Mom. I defintely had enough time to think about it but there are so many great ones to choose from!

Anyone who knows my Mom knows she loves to cook. She has just about every kitchen gadget you can think of well, except the Crafter's Apron!

I know my Mom likes flowers so I choose the Raspberry Ripple design to
highlight her favorite color. I opted not to use the inserts that come
with this template since this is a kitchen apron rather than a true
crafters apron! I am including some tea bags, my Mom's favorite
shotbread cookies and a gift certificate. Meager thanks for Mom for
being Mom! No, that's not all she's getting! We take her out for brunch
to a local 5 star hotel and plus we have some other goodies for her as
well.

Apron1
I used the DXF template file so I could cut the pieces on my Silhouette.
I put multiple pieces on a page so that I don't waste paper. To show
off more of the base color I cut the template shorter.

ApronEmpty

For this project I used the following Stampin' UP! products: Teeny Tiny Wishes. Whisper White Card
Stock, Raspberry Ripple Card Stock, Tangerine Tango Card Stock, Floral District Designer Series paper (double sided), Raspberry Ripple 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon, Crystal Effects, Stampin Dimensionals, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Bone
Folder, Raspberry Ripple Dahlias, Tangerine Tango Ink, Silver Soda Pop Tops, 7/8" Scallop Punch, 1" Circle Punch

I hope you liked this project using the Creations by AR Craft Apron
template. The templates are wonderful and the directions are always very easy to understand!

Creations by AR Love is in the Air Blog Hop

Welcome! Thanks for stopping by! You may have come to me today from Mary's
blog. If you've come to here outside of
the hop and you don't want to miss any of the exciting projects featuring Creations by AR templates you can
start at the beginning by visiting Lisa's blog.

The theme of this month's Blog Hop is, well you guessed it, a Valentine's Day theme: Love is in the Air. I had a hard time deciding on what template to feature in my post today. Well, I finally took the easy way out and chose the Heart Basket.

I created two versions using the DXF Heart Basket template file. When you purchase a template from Creations by AR you receive three different file formats to choose from. (SVG, DXF and PDF)

Heartbox2

For this project I used the following Stampin' UP! products: My Digital Studio (Box of Chocolates Digital Kit), Fantabulous You Digital brush set; Summer Smooches DSP, Vellum Card Stock, Whisper White Card Stock, Primrose Petals 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon, Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon, Mini Glue Dots, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Bone Folder, Paper Snips, Craft Scissors

HeartBox1

This next one almost reminds me of a Disney Mickey Mouse ears. Or should I say Minnie Mouse?! Say do they still make those?!

HeartBox3

I hope you liked these projects using the Creations by AR Heart Basket template. These are super quick and easy – perfect for a last minute Valentine gift or to make several for a party at your child's school!
