It's a Creations by AR Beach Hop!

So glad you could join us in our Beach Hop!
Adela has been at it again, and just wait until you see this month's great templates!
These were a lot of fun to create, and it was my very first EVER creation with my Silhouette Cameo that I got for my birthday in April!

With our Creations by AR Hops, there is always a winner - how can you win?
There will be TWO winners!  One will be chosen from comments on the DT blogs, and one will be chosen from comments on our Facebook page.  So...be sure to hop, and leave comments!  We
will accept comments until Saturday, June 14, 12:00 noon Eastern.
Winners will be announced on the AR Facebook page, and on the AR Website!
Full list of blogs is shown below.

First up is the adorable Sandy Beach Bucket
Just look at this sweet bucket, complete with it's own shovel!  I simply added a fun accessory sentiment from the          'On the Go' Collection from the Paper Loft, and voila!  A great table favor!



This photo shows the card completely assembled, and in it's own card stand.

Here is a close up of the card stand.  As you will see in a later photo, the stand folds flat for mailing!

Here's the shovel peeking out!

And...here is the shovel, complete with message!  I created this card to be a gift card holder, along with the shovel!

And here is everything all folded up, ready for mailing!
We hope you enjoy today's hop!

Thanks for stopping by, Patti J.

Here is the hop order!

Thank you leaving some love on my blog. Have fun with your Silhouette Cameo. The bucket card is awesome. Such a pity that work got in the way of my crafting this week.

Adela Rossol said...

"A Little Something for Your Bucket List Fund" is perfect for the card!!!! I have to say that when I was looking at your projects, I thought maybe you had someone cut them for you on their machine, but as I began reading……. OMyGoodness! Congrats on finally, FINALLY, using your Sil! Lovely projects, Patti J!
