CREATIONS BY AR BLOG HOP


Welcome to our blog hop, I have two gorgeous designs to share with you today from Adela's new Release.



 

This template is an absolute dream to work with.  It has several pieces and they all fitted together perfectly!


I used K&Company Bailey Papers, Lace and Button from The Ribbon Girl and a tea dyed tag together with a sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Love Lives Here Stamp Set.  The heart was cut using Papertrey's Hearts Print Collection Dies and hangs from a Making Memories Garment Pin.  I added detail on the fence with white gel pen.


This cottage would make a lovely gift for a new neighbour or someone moving into a new home.  It looks great filled with tea bags or you could even add some homemade goodies.

You can find The Tea Cottage Template here.





This has to be one of the cutest boxes I have ever made.


It gets it's name from the fact that you squish the top down to make the lid, it really is a clever idea.

Once again I've used K&Company Bailey Papers, Lace and Button from The Ribbon Girl, a tea dyed tag, Papertrey Ink's Love Lives Here Stamp Set and Hearts Print Collection Dies and another Garment Pin from Making Memories.


You can find the Now That's Smashing template here.

Adela has also created a tea pot shaped card template, Pot O' Tea.  I haven't had the pleasure of making this yet, but will be on the case very soon!  As you visit the Design Team's blogs I am sure you will come across it.

You can find the Pot O' Tea card template here.

To win one of these fabulous new templates leave a comment below and I will randomly choose a winner and anounce who it is on Friday.  For more chances of winning, all you need to do is leave a comment on each of the Designer's blogs as you blog hop.  Have fun!

Mandy, I wanted to apologize for leaving you a comment on here, referencing templates that are Lauren Meador's, not AR. I can't believe that I mentioned those, although I was convinced that the amazing AR created them!! I'm sorry though, must have been confusing when you read my comment!
