Creations by AR July Blog Hop




Welcome to Creations by AR July Blog Hop! 

This blog hop will feature the two new July release files-


and 


This first creation I made as a gifty to give to my crafty friend Linda. She came to visit during cherry harvest, but since I have to work every day, she bonded with my Silhouette machine instead. I am sure it won't be long before she is whipping up creations like these on her own machine! 

The top picture shows off the Folder Organizer all filled up with sets of Christmas cards and in the bottom picture I  took one of the folders out so that you can see what each folder looks like!
Each folder easily holds four A2 card sets-envelopes and all! Adela filled her folders up with embossing folders...I am going to make this file for my embossing folders too-what a cool idea!


Here you can see the banner file that is included in the Folder Organizer template. It was  jiffy to enlarge and use as a card topper. I stamped my friend's last name on the banner to personalize it a wee bit. I can tell you from experience that Adela's files are the easiest templates to use-especially if you tend to be a little techie challenged (not admittin' nothin' here). All of her files include a pictoral step-by-step pdf on how to put the file together, along with measurements if you need to size each piece! I so love that feature!



 I made two sets-of course each with a cherry theme-the perfect gift for co-workers during harvest. (yes, I parted with some of my beloved cherry paper)  I made two cards (size approximately 3 x3) with envelopes to put inside the bags. This template includes the envelope file as well! This bag takes about 5 minutes to make-if that! These would be perfect to make in quantity if you wanted to use it for party favors!  I used the Stackables file to stamp my sentiment on...gotta love those-you can make them any size-just right to fit any stamp!




I hope you can take a few minutes to hop along with us today. Although I am the last in line, you really should start with Adela's blog!:

ONE random winner will win their choice of one of the new templates-all you have to do is leave a comment here. (or for more chances, stop by all the blogs and leave a comment)

Patti J said...

Your beautiful DP's showcase these sets so well! The organizer set, done in Christmas prints is such a cheerful holiday display - love it, and love the idea of using it for cards! The bag and card set made me smile. That could have been a personal order from a dear friend of mine! She loves the cherries and the little bit of blue background looks just like her blog! Great work, my friend! P.S. Hope Santa brings me a silhouette for Christmas! If not, I think I will need new scissors!!!

Ginny said...

I really like your scallop bag and card set. It is so cheery. These are both great templates. I would love either one of them.

Sue - Love the Christmas themed folder template!!!! Good jump on ideas for people. Love the cherries and the scallop bag has such a happy feel.

missmacymay said...

Since you went with a Christmas theme for the file folders I was able to visualize how truly versatile this template is. Your design and the way you put the cherry elements together were yummy scrummy. Cherries are so expensive in the stores, I wish I lived near a cherry festival!!

Rhonda Miller said...

These are fabulous. What a great idea for your Christmas cards.

WOW! These are gorgeous. I love the holiday theme and that beautiful bow you made. The cherry set is so darn cute. You really did a fabulous job. You have my creative juices flowing. Thanks for the inspiration.
