Creations by AR Template shop - sadly - is closing it's Website doors.

Many of you know that I am on the Design Team for Creations by AR -  an on line store that sells wonderful templates designed by owner Adela Rossol.  We haven't posted anything in quite some time as Adela was having some health issues.  She made this announcement today:

To My Dear Fellow Crafters,

It's always difficult to say good-bye, but it is time. Many of you already know that I have been dealing with health issues which prevented me from designing and crafting. I miss my craft time so much! I discovered my passion for crafting when I was only seven years old and it immediately became my favorite hobby! Needless to say, my love for crafting will now take a back seat in my everyday life, but it's okay because I now have more time to spend with family. I'm very tankful for the blessings that God has given me and continue to give to me and my family. 

Thank you friends, for allowing me to share my love for paper crafting with you. It's always so exciting when I find AR projects online that someone has shared. Thank you for your lovely words and for being such a big part of my life!

I will be closing shop on July 31st. Please take advantage of the 50% off all files in my shop.  If you have AR Points accumulated, use them before the 31st.  If you have any questions not covered in the FAQ section of my website, please email me directly at [email protected]

Thank You and Farewell My Friends!
