Creations by AR - Designer's Choice Blog Hop

Welcome to our May 'Creations by AR' Hop!

We have changed things up a bit - rather than a new release, the designers will all be showcasing their favorite Creations by AR templates.  What fun!  This will be inspiration heaven at each stop along the way!
Now... how can YOU win a Creations by AR template of your choice?

Leave a little love on each blog, and then leave a comment on the AR FB page, telling us which template you would like to win!  Easy peasy!!!
Your comments will be accepted until noon Eastern on Friday, May 16th.
Good luck, and happy hopping!

Here is the hop order:
Patti J.:  You're here!

WOWZA! I had a really tough time choosing just ONE favorite, so I'm featuring a few of my faves - hope you don't mind the extra photos today!

My first and forever fave is the My Picnic Basket template.  This is pure heaven!  It's a great size, and except for the handle, it's all lines and no fru-fru, so it cuts beautifully with scissors!  The handles are also very easily cut with scissors!  This would be wonderful as a gift basket, party favor, wedding favor....
Simply cut, fold, assemble, and decorate!
Easy peasy, right?

Here it is all nicely closed up...

And here it is open!

Of course, you can always make it with NO lid, too!  The handle could also be left off.  Cute, cute, cute!!!
Next up is the Comfy Sofa Gift Box
This template makes a chair or sofa, and the 'recliner' slides out to hold some yummies, or cash, or....


With Father's Day around the corner, wouldn't this chair be 'sweet' fun?


Another fun template is the Tux and Gown Box Set!

Perfect for wedding, prom....

There are SO many more, but I will stop with this fun Grad Cap Box.


What a fun way to let that special grad know that you love them!


Now, it's time to hop on!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Patti J.

I love the Picnic Basket too. Thanks for sharing your fabulous creations and ideas.

Patti, Firstly, I'm always amazed at what you do without a cutting machine. I would never have thought to leave the lid off the basket, but I LOVE IT! It looks so elegant with the twisted handle. Also, love your colors on the basket. All your designs were wonderful, but the basket without the lid was my favorite.

Pam Sparks said...
