New Templates - Creations by AR DT Blog Hop

Welcome to the Creations by AR Design Team March Blog Hop!  Today the Design Team is showcasing some of the March templates.  These templates are available for use with Cutting Machines and also as PDF files! 

The new March Templates are:
"ES" in the Bag
Craft Hutch
Hat's Off (Bonus Template)

Each of the Designers will be giving away the new templates. TWO random winners will be chosen per blog, each winner will receive ONE of the new templates, so you'll have plenty of chances to win!  To participate and be eligible to win, simply leave a comment on this post, by Friday, March 9th, then check back on Saturday, March 10th, to see if you've won!   Don't forget to hop over to the other DT members Blogs and comment for multiple chances to win!

Today I'm sharing projects created with the "ES" in the Bag Template and the Craft Hutch Template.  For the Craft Hutch, I omitted the Test Tube Holder portion and used the template as a stationary gift box.  Here's what the box looks like when empty.  Pieces A and C2 are cut from Black card stock using the Silhouette Cameo, pieces H and C2 were cut from Bo Bunny pattern card stock.  Before cutting the templates from the Pattern Paper, I did resize them so that I would have a 1/16" of Black showing around the paper.  I adhered panel C2 to the back of the box, then tied on some Black Wrinkle Ribbon and added a Prima Button.



I resized the "ES" in the bag template to 6.395" x 5.000", so that I could cut the pieces from Prima's Printery A4 Pattern Paper.  I added Black card stock handles and a Rolled Rose cut from Printery card stock.  This smaller size is perfect for gift cards too!

Never would have occurred to me to use paper like that on the bag, but it looks great. And I love the butterfly paper on the hutch as well - beautiful examples.

Lynn said...

Love the way the craft hutch looks without the test tube holder as I can see me using that for cards or other small gifts.

Marion said...

Julia said...

Kim said...

The craft hutch looks entirely different without the test tubes, now I really want it. So fun!

Terry said...

Such fun projects and as always, brilliant choice and use of papers! Enjoy the evening!

Traci S. said...

Wow, Lisa! This craft hutch is so beautiful! I do not have any templates that construct boxes, or anything like this. As, I try each year to give my family cards suited to them every year...this would be the perfect container for them to store them in. I love the bold colors you chose. And, with a template, I am sure I would be able to put one together!

The second project is so crafty! I love your embellishments, including that rose! The handles look so sturdy. It's amazing what we can do with templates and creative.

Thank you for sharing the idea and for participating in the give-away!
As you can probably tell, I would love to give the craft hutch a good home. I don't know if I could pull off the other project as well.

He IS Able!
