TEMPLATES! PRIZES! and FUN! Oh My!


The Creations by AR Design Team and I are so excited to share with you our new templates starting today until Sunday evening! So, get hoppin' and check out our projects using these newly released templates! Each designer will randomly choose one winner on her blog, so you'll want to visit each one of them! How do you enter to win a prize?

What to Do: Visit each designer and leave a comment on their blog post.

Deadline: Comments are accepted until Sunday evening at 6:00 pm (Pacific Time). Each designer will announce their winner on Monday, the 15th.

As an added bonus, if you leave me a comment here on my blog today, telling me what kind of templates appeal to you and what you'd like to see more of, I will randomly choose one of you to receive a prize. I will announce that winner on Thursday right here.

Now, let's get hoppin'!

AR DESIGN TEAM:

Amy Park
Andrea Budjack
Magdalena Cortez
Maria Bell
Nikki Schmaltz
Silvia Mabie
Adela Rossol ---- that's me!

GUEST DESIGNER:
Sue Kment

The first project I'd like to share with you is what I call "Carry-All," only because it can hold lots of things inside it! It takes only one piece of paper to make the basic box and adhesive is optional. It's very easy make, which probably means that you'll be using it over and over again.
Available in PDF, SVG, DXF

SUPPLIES
Template:  Carry-All (CbyAR)
Paper: Saffron, Pixie Pink (SU!); Doodlebug DP
Acc: Ribbons from my stash, Crocheted Flower (CbyAR), Felt Flower and Mini Clip (SU!), Cuttlebug Embossing Folder

Come back tomorrow to see who the first lucky winner is!  Thanks so much for stopping by! You can't imagine how much I appreciate my readers!

OMG, love this carry all. I've been making some purse type packaging and just love the fact that this is just one piece. So cute. Thanks for sharing.

Nic's Mom said...

Adela you do great work! I purchased the Haute Couture purses and the onsie templates. I like templates that make shapes and are theme related. hope that helps!!! thanks again

Janet said...

What a perfect little carry all. Perfect for a gift for my Mom with my homemade Almond Roca.

This is too cute! Thanks for sharing.

Heather said...

Adela, Girl, you never cease to amaze me!!! What a GORGEOUS gorgeous carry all! Your templates always are so easy to use and fun... and your decorations and designs so inspiring! Thank you for always being the sweetest and for teaching / sharing with us all.

As for a template I would like to see... hmmm... I am for the simple stuff... but I would love to see a gift box with compartments. That would be fun!!!

Danon Hassall said...

I love anything like this that I can put cards or treats in to give away as prizes or to give as gifts. These are awesome.

tarabrose said...

Thank you!!

Love the carry all template. It looks so simple yet effective. A brilliant way of packaging little pressents this Christmas and making them look extra special.

Hi !!! Beautiful templates and projects !!!! Great for christmas presents.

Patti J said...

This is so sweet! What a great gift for mailboxes at work, Sunday school teachers, etc... Adorable template!

liz said...

Hi Adela
I'm back cos I forgot to say what I'd like to see in the way of templates - I love anything with drawers or flaps or secret hiding places. My dream would be a little cabinet with tiny little drawers to put secret things in. Probably too intricate but it sounds like a nice idea LOL
Liz

Nikki Schmaltz said...

I love this! I can't wait to use this one too! Such an exciting day in the days of TEMPLATES! You are amazing!

Tethered2Home said...

This is so much fun, Adela! LOVE that you are doing this!

Okay ... template wish list ... how about a doctor's bag for a get well gift.

Love ya, Kiddo!

Thanks for doing the hop! I like different types of envelope templates a lot, but also stuff for mail art (like faux "postage"), boxes for cards, and neat organizer designs. Thanks!

Jan Garber said...

The purse bags are great, but I like the "easy to mail" envelope types too! Most of my friends are not local and so hard to send any of the usual gift boxes by mail. Thanks, love the hop!

LadyDiane said...

I think this is an adorable template and looks very versitile. I am one who loves to put together card/tag gift boxes, if you could have templates that incorporate this in one, it would be wonderful. Thanks you again.

connie said...

I have 6 granddaughters and love the girly templates!

EMR said...

I love working with paper, especially making boxes and packaging. This is a lovely idea since I have just bought myself a Cuttlebug.

Erika said...

Adela, I just love your templates! I have purchased the BasicGiftBag, HauteTote, MiniBakery and Teaset templates and I am having so much fun constructing them. I especially love the HauteTote. I love 3d designs and my template wish would have to be a 3d wheelbarrow to put flowers in.

Melissa M said...

Adela I am really enjoying this hop. I love the 2 new designs. I really like everything you do. Boxes are always fun. I like the unusual! But this fireplace template makes me wish for more cards that can be mailed yet are 3D when brought out of the envelope. TFS!

ikwik201 said...

What an cute carry-all. Boxes and totes are my favorite.

princesskitten said...

I just love little boxes/folders to make and put things in!

alienanessa said...

OMGoodness, what a delightful project!! Love, love, love that, it's so sophisticated in its simplicity, which I appreciate and adore!! I personally love your awesome box templates and ones like the mini bakery, have a seat, I love the ones that are simple yet really fancy once you dress them up!!

doodlingdebbie said...

Love it! Being a crafting fanatic...I adore looking at beautiful creations like the ones you have here.

Happy crafting,
Debbie

Stacey said...

This is an awesome looking project! I would love to make these types of packaging for Holiday presents this year. There is nothing that makes a small present even more special than handmade packaging.

Thank you for the wonderful options. I love templates that aren't based on other dies that are expensive to buy to begin with.

SueBee said...

love the colors you worked with. So CUTE!

Michelle-a-bella said...

I love them all but I am really really enjoying the fireplace template, so Christmasy and creative!!!

Carol said...

I love this carry all template. I bake all the time and this would be great for my baked goods that I am always giving away! The fireplace template is so cute, it reminds me of when I was a kid!!

Annel said...

Paula said...

I love templates of boxes or containers of any size. This one for the Carry-All is particularly cute. How clever!

mjk said...

What a nice idea. I love boxes in any size.

Jnett's Place said...

Very cool. I like to use templates that will translate to cutting files. Makes life so much easier and even better if they are made for me and I don't have to make them. More boxes of all sorts.

Paula said...

Adela...I love the simplicity of this carry-all and how it's made with only 1 piece of cardstock and how it'll hold a lot of things. I know that many women can relate to that! Thanks for the new creations and I look to many more thru out the week.

Andrea said...

So beautiful!

AuroraDawn said...

Fabulous gift bag ... I love that its made with just one piece of cardstock!

HauteTote was my favourite by far (although a PC crash meant I lost it!) but I'd love to see more oraganisers/stationery items.

Stampinsilvia said...

This is just the cutest! I love love love it!!!! Love the colors and the fun embellies!

Jaqi said...

I really like this carry-all. I can think of a zillion uses for it already!

I love the Carry-All! It's great that it only takes one piece of paper to make the base instead of having to connect a lot of pieces together. Thanks for sharing!
