Day 4 of 12 Days of 3D Christmas

Welcome to day 4 of 12 Days of 3D Christmas! Creations by AR is having a “12 Days of 3D Christmas” Contest!  Woot-Woot!  Prizes to be won & fun to be had.  Be sure to check out more details at Paper Craft Planet’s Creations By AR Discussion Group.

Each Day, at Paper Craft Planet’s Creations By AR Discussion Group, you will see a different template from Creations By AR & today’s template is called “Winter Sleigh

This template is a fun little gift box to hold cookies, truffles, gift card, jewelry …

Adela’s Templates come in SVG, PDF, & DXF formats (as well as step by step instructions a pdf).  I used the SVG, reduced the size of the sizeable template, and cut it out twice on my Cricut Cutter with Sure Cuts A Lot software.

I used the duplicate template to make faux-bois wood planks.

The planks were made by dragging 3 different shades of brown coloured inks over a mustard CS and then cutting parallel lines.

Then I put them in an embossing folder, for some texture.  (Optional).

It gives the Winter Sleight that old style look.

Applying texture to the template changes it up & you could even put a string around the front to use as an ornament.


It’s easy! Just leave a comment at Paper Craft Planet’s Creations By AR Discussion Group, between now and before the next day’s post is up. TWO random visitors will win all three templates! Check the Discussion group tomorrow to see if your name was chosen. Be sure to check back each day to see what the next designer has made to inspire you.

Hope you have fun with Creations By AR 12 Days of 3D Christmas Event!

Happy Birthday, Liam!

Today is my big boy’s 6th birthday.  Can’t believe that!

Here are some pics of my sweetie.  I dropped the camera yesterday & it’s rattling a bit now, not good, but seems to be ‘working’, although focus is off a bit.  Kinda’ gives the photos that ‘rustic’ look.

Love you, Liam!

His request … Mum’s Tripple layer Chocolate Cake with fudge icing.

Winner, Winner

Congrats, Jacqui!  Be sure to contact Adela for your CRAFTER’S APRON template prize.  Thanks again to Adela for all this fun!
