Creations By AR Release Day!

 Today I'm so excited to be part of my first ever Creations by AR  release!  Adela has some amazing things in her shop.  I LOVE to create 3D projects and her templates make that so easy. 
  Today I'm featuring two new releases.  
First up is the Totally Tote-able.
 I can definitely see myself using this one A LOT!  I think all my teacher gifts will go in here this year:)


This was so easy and fun to create!

Next up is the Fireplace Card.


I like to think "outside the box," or in this case I made a box.  Yep!  I had an idea to take the template for the Fireplace card and make a shadow box type of card AND a matching box to go with it.  All using the same template.  Stop back later in the month and I'll show you how I did that;)   I have another variation on how to use this template too.  It's not finished so you'll have to come back for that as well.

I have one more card to share using some great embellishments that Adela has in her shop.

I used 2S4Y Sketch 65 for this card.


Now, for a chance to WIN A FREE TEMPLATE, leave me a comment on my blog and then hop along to all the fabulous Design Team blogs.  Leave a comment along the way.  You're sure to be dazzled!  You have until Sunday.  One winner will be chosen on each blog.  Wow!  

Hop to it and have FUN!
