Goody Basket Blog Hop - Creations by AR

Hello!
Welcome to my blog!  Today, I'm sharing some wonderful Great Impressions Stamps, for my guest design Thursday post, and a DT project that I've created for Creations by AR!  What fun!
For this project, I've chosen to use the Great Impressions Stamps, F318 Chickadees, and C430 Cursive Happy Easter.  The image was stamped, colored with Copic Markers, and adhered to the handle of the Creations by AR Goody Basket!  These little chicks were so much fun to color - check out the teensy little flowers they are standing around!  I think I'm going to use this one a lot!  And I love the cursive sentiment!


This Goody Basket is created using some DP that I've had on hand for a long while - time to use it up, and it was perfect for this fabulous template!  Remember, I don't have a cutting machine - all of Adela's templates that I work with, are cut by hand!  If you are lucky enough to own a cutting machine, each of her files come in three formats: PDF, SVG, and DXF!


Can't you just imagine this template for a wedding reception, baby shower, or child's birthday party?


One lucky reader will win this template - it could be you!
Just leave a comment at each blog.  Comments are also welcome at the Creations by AR Facebook Page, and Paper Craft Planet Group, and will be accepted until 12:00 noon (EST) on Sunday, Feb. 24th.
Winner will be announced on 2-25 at the Creations by AR's website, Adela's Blog, the AR Group on PCP, and the AR FB page!

Hop on, dear friends, and enjoy!

Patti J. (you're here!)

Don't forget that you still have time to join in the Great Impressions' February Challenge: "Have a Heart". Just be sure that your project includes a heart(s)!  You could be named the April Guest Designer!

Thanks for stopping by today,

Patti J.

Patti, I'm a hand cutter too and Adela's templates are user friendly for us and for those who use a machine. Your papers and coloring are fantastic for this template! I like them both, would be hard to pick one over the other. Awesome projects and super cute papers. You gave attention to the details.
