Christmas Days with Creations by AR - Day 5

Christmas Days!
(To see my Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week Post, please scroll down)

For 10 days, that began on Thursday, December 6th, the AR Girls will be sharing ideas for presenting holiday gifts using templates from Creations by AR! Not only will you get to know each of the AR Girls, but every day for 10 days they will bring inspiration to you with their holiday projects. So, join us daily at the Creations by AR FaceBook Page or at our AR Group on Paper Craft Planet.


 Welcome to Day 5 of the hop!
I am pleased today to be showcasing one of my favorite Creations by AR templates, the Gift and Card Combo.

Here are all three of my creations.

Rubber Stampede Image, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Bazzill DP, Ribbon from my stash.
Northwoods Rubber Stamp, Cardstock, Transparency from Office Max
Amuse Candy Cane CS, Stamping Bella 'Frostier' KS207, Copic Markers, Paper Piecing with Bazzill CS, Happy Winter stamp is Paper Salon  



I fully intended to fill this box with tags, but ran out of time!  So it's filled with ugly M & M's.  The sentiment is by Penny Black "3274H Once a Year", and reads "At Christmas play and have good cheer, for Christmas comes but once a year!"
Stampendous "JO89 Friends Love, "C037 Snow Angel", Bazzill DP, Copic Markers, Sakura Glitter Pen, Amuse Baker's Twine, Black Colorbok CS, White Office Max CS
Each of these adorable gift boxes has an adorable slide out drawer, for candy, tags, gift cards, jewelry, ornaments, Copic Markers, etc!  This sentiment is from Impression Obsession "Peaceful Season Wishes #D8623"


One winner each day will receive a template of their choice from Creations by AR. The Daily Prize winner will be chosen from comments left on the designer's blog who is featured that day.  The daily winner will be announced the following day on the AR FaceBook Page and on our AR Group on Paper Craft Planet 

The Grand Prize Winner will receive ONE TEMPLATE A MONTH FOR SIX MONTHS beginning January 2013! The Grand Prize Winner will be randomly chosen from comments left on the  AR FaceBook Page and on our AR Group on PCP between December 6-15. Winner will be announced December 16.
