Creations by AR April Blog Hop!


Welcome to Creations by AR's April Blog Hop featuring our new template, Enchanted Lantern! The set comes with three window designs, so you can go simple or ornate.  I'm so excited with this template that I've already made eight of them!

For a wedding theme, I decided to use all three designs using blings, pearls, tulle, and a battery operated tea light! (Note: the template comes in one size, but for this set, I resized for variation)

Here's another set I made with a very simple design -- actually, I used no embellishments on this set. I filled them with sea shells and a battery operated tea light.  A little bit of distressing was all I did... easy peasy!

Want to win this template?  Here's all you have to do....

Visit and leave comments on each AR Girl's blogs listed below.  You are also welcome to leave comments on the AR Facebook Page and on our Paper Craft Planet Group.

Comments accepted until Friday, April 19 (12:00 noon EST). One random winner will be announced April 20 right here on this blog and also on FB and PCP.

Ready to see what the other AR Girls have made with the Enchanted Lantern?
