Hey It’s a blog hop! Creations By AR is releasing some new templates & we’re launching them with a Father’s Day Blog Hop.
What do you win at this hop? One of two new templates
Here’s what I made with the COMFY SOFA GIFT BOX template:
This template, can be converted into a sofa/chesterfield/couch or just the chair.
The chair has a compartment that pulls out.
For a gift box. I thought what might be a good gift for the gadgety dad, is a USB stick with a photo slide show of favourite photos for his computer screen saver.
Oh yes, & don’t forget the remote on the chair.
The second template I made was: PAPA’S TRUNK
The SVG, is of course, scalable. So I brought mine down to 50% of actual size.
There’s a little paper lock included in the template.
That is used as a label here.
I made mine from white CS & then put an embossing folder to get the raised metal impression, and then dragged silver ink pads over it.
Here’s the back … I used tiny eyelets to hold the paper hinges.
I had these tiny tools from the dollar store … totally worked for this “Delta Tool Box Truck Box” project.
And that’s it!
What you need to know …
PRIZE: there will be ONE random winner per DT blog. Winner will receive ONE of the new templates.

The Design Team:
Have fun on the hop & thanks again to Adela for organizing the Father’s Day Blog Hop & the beautiful Template giveaways.
I am having some fun with being one of the guest designers on Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #84, Father of the Bride.
I had seen this template a LONG time ago, but one of those cards you tuck in the back of your brain & then when I found out what the movie was this week, I had a flash to this scene:
Franck Eggelhoffer: Uh-oh, I bring the wrong color thread. I assumed you’d be wearing a black “tuxado.”
George: It is a black “tuxado.”
Franck Eggelhoffer: I don’t think so, babe. This tux is “nuffy” blue. No doubt about it.
George: What’re you talking about? Armani doesn’t make a blue tuxedo.
Franck Eggelhoffer: Armani don’t also make “polyaster.”
I thought ‘Father of the Bride’ was such a cute movie. My fellow Cannuk, Martin Short, did a ridiculously funny character of Franck Eggelhoffer, IMO
Just too much fun! Good for Father’s Day or A wedding or Graduation maybe!
The Creative Challenge this week, Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge#83, had a bit of a Guy Feel to it & I always have difficulty with Guy/Boy cards, but I gave it a go.
The bag template is a Freebie from Adela & you can find it over at Paper Craft Planet’s 3D Tuesday Group! Look at the bottom, under Attachments & you’ll find the link to the AR-ZBoxBag.zip.
I do love repurposing stamps so I used the sentiment from a valentine stamp & coloured it with marker for the ’sent with love’. The Golf T is a retired SU! stamps set called ‘Have a Ball’, the dsp is from Chatter Box Inc called Billiard Argyle (2 sided paper)
The tools I used to make the golf ball, besides the glossy white paper were …
This Digi Stamp is from Paper Craft Planet’s Sketch sponsor, Karens Doodles.
You could win one of these digi stamps by entering a father’s day card with this week’s sketch challenge & tag it with sk052910 over at Paper Craft Planet!
This weeks PaperCraft Planet’s 3D challenge, from Adela, 3D63 is this cute Shirt & Tie Gift Bag!
Paper Craft Planet 3D63 Challenge!
Father’s Day Origami Gift Bag
The easy to follow origami steps for this bag are from Origami Club.
Don’t forget to check out other fun interpretations of this shirt gift bag over at Paper Craft Planet’s 3D63 album!
This week’s 3D challenge from Paper Craft Planet was from Sankari. Her 3D62 was to create a Name Card Holder.
I just sorta winged it with the design, but I would say the “peg board” is 4″ tall by 3 3/4″ wide, punched with a paper piercer. The table itself, is also 4″x3 3/4″ wide, & it’s scored with a 1″ fold on each, so scored at 1″ & 3″.
I wish I knew how to pass on the svg files, but I can show you the outlines I traced. Anyhow, trace ‘em & convert to an svg or just print em out & cut. Someday I will figure out how to upload an svg for folks to down load, but for now there is laundry, gardening, kids, crafting, laundry …
Here’s a really cute template for a Father’s Day Tie Box I found from Kimberley Morris (procrastistamper).
Kimberley provided a freebie pdf Tie Box Template here!
I used Stampin’ Up Patterned Paper, that reminded me of my own Dad’s ties. The ‘guy’ in our family is a Jelly Bean fan, so that’s probably what’ll go in this box.
Such a cute idea, thanks, Kimberley!
I saw this Fun Father’s Day Gift Packaging Challenge (3d15) at Paper Craft Planet’s 3D Tuesday Challenge & had to give it a go. I used Angela Sgro’s adorable Shirt Template along with the Bag-a-lope Video Tutorial from the oh so clever Dawn Griffith.
I used a Vanilla Envie with “Fashio District”: ‘Me & My Big Ideas’ Mat Pad (Clearance from Michaels) along with some Bashful Blue CS. I cut the Paper in half & then inverted it so that the border was on the inside, to look more like a Hawaiian Shirt.
The Shirt template from Angela Sgro is meant to be a card. It opens up so you can write a sentiment. Honestly, just so clever.
The Bag looked a bit boring, so I added some stitching (that’s why it’s crooked, ’cause I put it on after). The bag is so tiny too, but it’ll fit some of Dad’s favourite Jelly Beans just right!
Used: Vanilla Envie, “Fashio District”: ‘Me & My Big Ideas’ Mat Pack, Bashful Blue CS, MM Buttons, White Gel Pen, Super Sticky Tape, Dimensionals, Fiskars Trimmer, Angela Sgro’s adorable Shirt Template, & Bag-a-lope Video Tutorial.
