Creations by AR - March Release Hop!

Creations by Ar's new releases for March are here!  I'm so happy you could join us for today's New Release Hop, featuring Adela's wonderful new 3-D Templates!   Hopefully, you began your hop at Creations by AR - if not, you can go back at any time.  Below is a list of each designer, with a link to their blog...

As usual, there will be prizes!  You will have several chances to win, by hopping to each designer's blog, and leaving a comment about their projects. Two random winners will be chosen per blog to each receive one of the new templates.  Check back on Saturday to see if you were one of the lucky winners!

My first project today is the Craft Hutch.  This template comes with two different heights for the back piece, as well as three different sizes for test tubes, as they vary in shapes and sizes.  I printed the templates directly onto the DP, cut them out, scored them, and put them together.



Decorating them was fun, too!  The sentiment and image are from Impression-Obsession. (B5578 When I count and H4161 Thanks Collage).  DP is A Muse blue gingham.

Next is a darling St. Patrick's Day Hat!  This is called Hat's Off.  I printed the pattern, cut it out by hand, traced it onto the CS (Best Creation), and cut again on this one.  The CS has some slickness to it, and didn't want to go through my printer.



This hat is so cool, as it's two separate pieces!  The top lifts off, revealing a special hiding place for candies, jewelry, rubber stamps, etc.  What a darling favor for a party - the template includes a patriotic look too, with stars and stripes!

Last, is the new purse template, "ES" in the Bag.  I chose to finish mine as a gift bag for a spring candle.  I think you will like it as well.  Again, there are two different looks - this pretty scalloped look, and more of a straight edge, with a funky shaped handle!  SO much fun!



I used some glittery CS from Best Creation, a beautiful die from Our Daily Bread Designs, the Bird Punch from Stampin' Up, DP from Simple Stories, Kaiser Craft Pearls, a doily from Dollar Tree, and some flowers and ribbon from JoAnn's.

Hope that you are enjoying the hop!  Hop on, my friends, to Sue's blog, and I'll see you back here on Saturday, with two winners!!!
