VALENTINE 3D HOP...

It's time for a valentine blog hop to see how the Creations by AR Design Team have used the two new templates, Shadow Box Frame Set and Surprise Purse Template.  We have giveaways too, another good reason for joining us today!

Let me introduce the Shadow Box Frame Set.  I decided this would make a real cute alternative to sending a valentine card.

Standing at 7cm x 7cm it's just perfect to display a fun object or photo in. The template comes with two window designs, square and heart, together with optional matching front layers for decorating.

To be in with a chance of winning BOTH templates please leave a comment below and I will choose a winner at random and announce it on my blog on Thursday.

By visiting all of the Design Team members and leaving a comment on each of their posts you will have an even greater chance of winning!

To see their wonderful creations click on the links below and enjoy your Creations by AR Valentine Blog Hop journey.

Love the simple clean lines of the design. I like how the large, medium and small lettering ties in. The suspended heart is way-cool.

It is quite amazing how you can use one template and there can be so many variations made up, you wonder if it is the same template, this is gorgeous. Well done! Ursula X

Love it. Like the layered heart affect will have to remember that.

I love it, I like the effect of the layered heart inside. I have seen this technique used before, but have tried it myself. I think I just may have to.
