Creations by AR New Release and Blog Hop

Hello Friends!!! Welcome to the Creations by AR blog hop and template release! Play along with us by commenting my post and answering the question "what type of challenge do you like best" . . .you'll have a chance to win a template by Creations by AR! The winner will be announced on Thursday, June 30th! You also have multiple chances to win by commenting each designers post! Okay, let's get started!


If you get lost along the way, here is the list of designers participating in the blog hop:



This is the sample of the "Tray Chic" template. I decided to design all of my projects in "shabby chic" style! I basically used similar materials and embellishments on each of my projects, pearls, lace, buttons, seam binding bows, fabric flowers, crochet flowers, designer paper, etc. so I won't really discuss the design of each project.

The tray made for a fabulous storage for my seam bindings, lace, and crochet flowers! I love it!


The tag says "inspiration". . .:)

This sample is for the "Gift Card Purse" template. It's such a cute card purse to give to someone. It opens up and it has a notch to hold your gift card!


Here is gift card purse opened up. As you can see, the notch holds the gift card!


Oooh pretty flowers. . :)

This is a sample of the "Elegant Sole" template! Too bad it's not a real shoe.. ..I would wear it. Hehe! This is a cute project . . .it can be used to decorate your space, a table or even be sent out along with your gift card purse!


I just had to add my crochet flower and fabric flower! I love crocheting and creating fabric flowers!

Okay, be sure to comment my post so you'll have a chance to win a template!

Next on the hop is Sarah Gough's blog. . .

Good luck!!

Hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday!

Shabby chic isn't my favorite style but I do really like how the card holder turned out. I guess my favorite challenges are card sketch challenges because even though I don't participate I like seeing all the ideas of others and often scraplift them.
