Little LolliPot

Isn’t this cute?  It’s the new template from Creations By AR.

Now, my computer that is hooked up to my cutting machine blew up this week.  I wasn’t happy.  Now What??  Well, I went old school, using Adela’s simple & sweet templates, I made this in less than 15 minutes with scissors.

Lolli-Pop and  It’s Bow Easy are the templates I’m showing you today.

Be sure to check out the other DT’s take on this little LolliPot.







Not sure what the other girls have in their treat box, but … under my bow there’s …

… something different that a lollipop.

omm nomm nomm … Baileys chocolate truffles.

Be sure to check out Adela’s templates!

Oh Dear, Blitzen!

It’s time for the Tuesday 3D Challenge Group project, at Paper Craft Planet.  I’m hoping you will view this as a fun Christmas/Winter craft, after all, no animals were harmed in the making of the project.

I’ve seen quite a few free versions of a paper deer/animal head craft.  This is an amalgamation of a few that I liked, with modifications, that my sons & hunting hubbie all approved.

You could of course add colour & add it to a gift box or a wine bottle maybe:

It’s a pretty simple piece of construction.

Make something & add it to the gallery at Paper Craft Planet, with the tag 3d192 & I’ll find it & put it in an album for all to see.

If you’d like to print out the Deer, here you go, 8 1/2 by 11″.  Be sure to cut 2 of the head & ears & yolk (the pink):

If you feel like following the ramblings of a mum of 3, who was multi-tasking with French Devoirs and trying to write up instructions … good luck:

Oh yes, you’ll need the plaque.  I cut it twice, sized it just a bit bigger the second time for a matte effect.

Here’s a few more pics of Adela’s New Template for gift giving fun.

Thanks to Adela of Creations By AR for hosting this hop & be sure to drop a line to the girls on the DT & let ‘em know what you think of their projects!

In the great green field, there was a template …

Would you like a chance for a free template from Creations By AR?  Yeah!!!!   Just leave a comment today on this entry (or for more chances to win, the other Design Team’s blogs as well!) & a winner will be announced on Saturday!

This release’s new template is called Old Mc Card & Old Mc Barn .

The card is 3-dimensional & the barn opens up into a box for treats.  Fun!  I added a Stampin’ Up Tractor stamp on the front of the card.  For the box, adding some texture with an embossing folder is always fun, just remember when you change the paper after it is cut, it changes the shape just ever so much smaller, so you may need to adjust, if you use this technique.

The Creations by AR Design Team Members came up some wonderful takes on these templates.  Visit their sites, leave a note to be entered into the hop for more chances to win.

Popcorn & Paper

Hope everyone is having a great summer.  We’ve been going non stop around here since June, either having company over for visits or out on holiday.  Spinning, we’ve been absolutely spinning, but in a good way.  We’ve also enjoyed a bunch of movies this summer … well except for magic Mike & my friend already apologized for bringing me to that one.  The kids have had a few movie nights with friends at the house & have a few more coming up before the summer ends.  I thought a quick & fun for this week’s 3D Challenge at Paper Craft Planet, 3d177, might be this cute little Popcorn Box from One Charming Party.

They (Bettijo B. Hirschi and Aimée Lowry) have provided a free template and detailed instructions for this fun project.  Just print & cut.  No fancy die cutting machines or intricate cuts here.

Here’s my go with it …

Have some fun with this one & remember, it doesn’t have to be filled with popcorn … this template would be great to welcome overnight guests with shampoos & toothpastes or birthday gift card & candy or whatever.  It’s just a cute template.

Have fun!

Stars & Stripes Blog Hop!

Creations By AR is hosting a blog hop with beautiful templates up for grabs.
How do you enter in to win a template?  Visit the Design Team blogs listed below, leave a comment at each one, and you’ll automatically be entered in the drawing.
On Saturday, June 23, revisit each blog to see who the designers have chosen as their random winner.
Right-e-o …. now onto the fun.  I made my “Stars & Stripes” Bordered Box Set.  Now being a canuck, I didn’t find any American Patriotic Paper, so I stamped some white lines onto red patterned paper.  For the ruffle at the top, I used blue plastic table cloth that I sewed into a ruffle and adhered to the inside of the box border.  I also cut out a star on the front of the box.  To get the same shape of star as the top border, just resize the template to a bigger size & cut out the star.

Then I filled it with some red & white candy sticks, held together by a belly band.

Lots of fun.  Now be sure to check out what the other Creations by AR Design Team Members came up with & drop them a note to be entered into the hop.

Father’s Day Blog HOP

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 :D



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.

Wee hammer.

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.

HOW TO WIN: Leave a comment to qualify.

WINNERS will be announced: Saturday

Be sure to visit all the members of the DT & leave a comment on each blog, for more chances to win!

Creations By AR: Blog Hop!

Hey, it’s a NEW RELEASE blog hop from Creations By AR!  There will be 1 winner per blog & all you need to do to enter is leave a comment.

The prize is the CRAFTER’S APRON template.  The template has a section to put in tubes, but I thought I’d show you a different take with this fun template.  Keep ‘em in the cupboard with a colouring in book or doodle paper for when little hands come by.

I use my small Cricut machine (it’s 6″ x 12″) so I shrunk the template down by 70% and that makes it the perfect size for a pack of crayons.  (Under $2 at staples).

The template itself is so cute, looking like an Apron!

Fun, quick template!

Adela of Creations By AR also sells sets of four tubes with caps. They’re great for packaging products including bath salt, food items, office supplies and of course flowers!

There are several different tubes including:  CLEAR OVAL TUBES, COLORFUL TUBES, CLEAR TEST TUBES with Cork (not shown above, but trust me, they’re really cute!)

I used the colorful tubes in Adela’s “Let’s Vase It” Vase …

Alright onto the fun stuff, the blog hop!

Be sure to visit these DT’s blogs for inspiration & leave a comment at each blog for a chance to win!

Good Luck to all those who enter.  Winners will be annouced Thursday, December 1st.  Thanks again to Adela for all this fun!

Quick Favour Box

Paper Craft Planet’s 3D 134 Tuesday … finally … Sorry this is about 6 hours late.  I’ll be honest here I was updating google calendar with the kids rediculous activities schedule & I noticed about an hour ago that I had completely forgotten about the challenge … bad me.

To that … good news, THIS IS a quick craft!  Bwha ha.  Hopefully you enjoy it.

This is a very Clever craft from SJRenoir, which is one of my “go to” quick boxes.  There is a template, which I have converted to an SVG file so that I can use Sure Cuts a Lot in my Cricut machine.

I have an old cricut machine & occasionally have problems finding the small mats.  Here’s a secret.  You can cut a big mat & make 3 small mats …

Score …

Fold ..

Tie …

And Bob’s Yur Uncle ..

The template can be found at SJRenoir:
