New Release Hop with Prizes!


If you're here, then you've just joined the Creations by AR Blog Hop! My design team has come up with some great new projects to share with you using our new templates, so be sure to click on their links for a visit and if you leave a comment, even better! You will automatically be entered to win one of our new release templates just for doing so!

This first one is called the Tea Cottagefor obvious reasons! It's an adorable little cottage that dispenses tea bags! All the little pieces you see here are included in the set, including the fence (which you can use over and over again especially if you have a cutting machine!) and the wrought iron flourish window, which is a BONUS GIFT only until the end of March.

Notice the bottom step opening? That's there to keep the tea bags safe inside. Close it and the bags are tucked neatly inside.

My next template is the Pot O' Tea shaped card (which I made using the same paper as the Tea Cottage). I designed the inside mechanism of this card to stop at a certain point so when it's pulled up, the card stays in one piece.



Speaking of one piece, here's my new box template for holding gifts or giving as a favor. My sample for Now That's Smashing! is actually a pen/pencil holder that looks like a flower in a pot (the main reason for designing the box in a trapezoid shape!). The fun thing about this box is closing it -- "smash" the top down and voila!



To participate and be eligible to win a free template, simply post a comment! Each AR Designer will randomly pick their winner, so you'll have plenty of chances to win if you visit their blogs!  Winners will be announced Friday, March 25th.

Now, "hop" on over to each blog listed below and leave a comment!

Adela Rossol <-- that's ME!


Thank you for stopping by!!!

alienanessa said...

Adela, I completely bow to your abilities with templates for 3D projects. I may just ask hubby if I can use some tax money to buy some more templates. Your In a Pinch box, which I bought last April, is one of my core go-to templates for a gift...every single person has just loved it! And the cupcake bakery, OMG, I found some mini heart cupcake candles at Joanns and proceeded to make bakeries for them to give as teacher appreciation gifts. That tea cottage, oh jeepers, I'm swoooooooooning completely, and that teapot card, good grief, I could go on and on and on and on...

Renee's ramblings said...

What marvelous templates! Love them all, but the flower pot is striking me right now. It is time for flowers, and it would be super for a mother's day gift!

Diana N. said...

I am in awe, simply in awe of your creative talents! Who would have thought someone could make something so clever from paper!

Jennifer McGee said...

Wonderful new creations, Adela! I love them all - you are definitely one talented Chica.

Lolis said...

Your creations are amazing!TFS

Sue from Oregon said...

Adela, you have outdone yourself! All such great great creations!!!!!!!!

Sally said...

Wonderful creations.

Diana said...

I so admire that you can "think" in 3D. I wish I could.

Noreen said...

The cottage really is a cute place to keep tea bags. And I love your teapot card with the slide out card. You could attach a gift card to it. I liked the look the shading gave the smash box.

Laurie said...

How sweet is this... I love the teapot with a pullout message. The cottage is adorable.

Isabel said...

HOla Adela,
Hermosas las plantillas para esta temporada, la casita me encantó!!! y que bueno que venga hasta con la serca incluida.
Smashing box ideal para dar como detalle, viendo los trabajos de las chicas se me ocurrio colocar chupetines en vez de lapicera para entregar a los niños.
Y la tarjeta deslizable me parece el complemento justo para la casita,
felicitaciones
Besos Norma Isabel

anne said...

alienanessa said...

Adela, I feel like such an idiot. I am so sorry that I reference Lauren Meador templates in my comment to you during the blog hop. Man, I was so convinced that your wonderful talents created those templates, I apologize for not ensuring that I was correct. I am getting ready to go purchase the cottage and the smash templates - I'm so glad you created those!!
