Creations by AR New Release Blog Hop



Good Morning!  Today is another fun blog hop sure to inspire you this week.
Creations by AR is a fantastic template store for all your 3D projects.  Adela is so amazing and sweet.  Today the design team will share a few ideas with  SEVERAL templates that are being released TODAY. 

Join in the fun!  One winner will be chosen from each blog and announced on Wednesday.  So make sure you leave a comment along the way.

If you are arriving here from MARIA'S Blog, then you are on the right track.

Today you will see samples from various new releases.

 I made two samples using the Heart Box.


I used some papers by Jenni Bowlin.  I loved how the flower centers were heart shaped.  I also colored some prima flowers with an R89 copic and then went over it with an R35.  That pushes the darkest color to the edges for a slight, two toned, effect.  I also used some Bazzil mini pom pom trim.  I love the mini pom poms.  My sentiment is from VERVE'S Heart's Afire

Here is the inside:

 ( I SWEAR that is  my "pointer" finger:)

These boxes are incredibly easy to make.

Here's another sample:



For this one I used two different Verve sets...Thankful Accents and a Plain Jane.  I also added some tea dyed trim to the edge of the top heart.


Here is a side shot:

Thanks so much for popping in today.  I PROMISE that I will have my tutorial for making a box out of the Fireplace Template tomorrow.... 

I will also have more creations this week using the other templates so make sure to pop back over to see those.



 Now hop on over to see what fabulous thing Silvia has made.  Don't forget to leave a comment along the way for a chance to win a template of your choice

Here is the blog hop list, in case you lose your way.
Nikki Schmaltz   That's ME:D

Many Blessings!

thank you for sharing such a wonderful projects

I'm sure you've already thought of this idea but when I got a peek at the birdcage with the top removed and the handle added it reminded me of a wishing well almost so I think this would be perfect as a wedding favor or as a card box if it's possible to enlarge it. You've got my creative juices flowing now. :-)
