Creations By AR March Release

Hello ladies and gents! It's time for Creations By AR template release, so grab youself a cup of tea and get ready for some smashing templates! All puns intended! hahahaha I crack myself up!
The first template is for the Tea Cup Cottage...as you have probably seen from other blog posts, this cute little house will hold a variety of teas! Well when I was making this little cottage my little3 year old girl was just screatching with excitement at how cute it was and so when I finished the basic box and she batted her baby blues at me, I just couldn't say no! So my cute tea catty has now become a doll house for Polly Pocket sized dolls!
Here is my beautiful little Bella and her decorated cottage!
And here is the house with Princess Tiana in it...good thing the roof comes off!

Princess Tiana is really enjoying her house...notice her beautiful flowers!
If this isn;t cute I don't know what is!


And for the second template! We have the Smashing box! I love love love this box...perfect for some chocolates for a neighbor, friend or co-worker!



Simply print the template, cut, score and glue!


I added a tag, the stamp set is called Just Dandy by Marks Finest Papers



And here is a look at the top of the Smashing box, it has a little hole and you can just as easily put a pen in there to add to your gift!



Now hop on over to the rest of the blogs and see what you can see! Good luck!!!

Random winners will be announced Friday, March 25th.

alienanessa said...

I apologize for the comment I left on here, in which I say that I haven't stopped making In a Pinch boxes. That's a Lauren Meador template rather than AR; I was just so convinced that was a wonderful AR template!! Sorry about that!
