Creations by AR New Template Release - Goody Basket

Hi everyone!  I'm happy to welcome you to Adela's 2nd February Template Release.  Today the Design Team is using the sweet Goody Basket Template to inspire you!   And we're having a blog hop so you might win this template for yourself.  See how at the end of my post!  The basket measures 3.25"w x 2.25"d x 4.25"h.

I used the template to make two very different style baskets - first a fun one that would be great for a fanciful birthday party!
I used an old Sizzix Bare Tree die for my owl to sit on. (I don't think they make this tree die anymore -  but Tim Holtz has a great one that would work just as well)  I cut the trunk off of it and just adhered the branches to the basket handle.  The sentiment is from Wise Owl by PTI
The cute little owl is a punch from SU
Back view - the woodgrain card stock is from Amuse
Side view
For my second basket - I went formal - using brushed silver and gold card stock from SU, and lace and netting from my stash.  (the netting was wrapped around some flowers given to me at some time in the past - I knew I'd need it someday!)  My sentiment on this is for an engagement favor - but  with different stamps it could easily be used for a wedding shower, wedding, or special anniversary! 

The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse.  I die cut it with Spellbinders Fancy Tags 2

I just knotted the netting through the handle and let it flow on each side.  Back view - you can see how nicely the liner piece of the template finishes off the inside of the box -  Adela thinks of everything!
Side view kind of obscured by the netting!
So - in review -  2 creations using Adela's new Goody Basket Template - one elegant
 and one fanciful!
I hope you have been inspired by my creations for this sweet little Goody Basket Template - All of Adela's templates come in PDF, SVG and DXF formats.  This lovely template is available in the shop here.

An Engaging Card and Fella Bella Blog Candy!

My niece, Katie, just got engaged and I wanted to share the cute story of how Greg proposed. They were going to Fenway Park to the opening day Red Sox game here in Boston. They are both avid Red Sox Fans. They had gone in on the subway and were walking through Boston Garden on their way up to Fenway Park. Greg said ' Let's sit here for a minute' and Katie thought that was kind of funny to stop but said 'Ok'. He started talking about how fun it was going to be to see the Red Sox get their World Series Rings and she agreed. Then he said 'How would you like to get a ring too?' and proceded to propose to her and give her a beautiful engagement ring! Then off they went to the game - and the Red Sox won! What more could you want for a fun night out??!!

So I wanted to make a special card for them - I guess I should have put baseballs all over it! LOL! but instead I made this card that covers a whopping 4 challenges! I'm a little behind on my card making this week. I took last night off because I had some finishing of other cards to do so I tried to catch up a little today!

I made my own designer paper using Flourishes scroll background stamp which covers the Limited Supplies Challenge - I used eyelets which was yesterdays Ways to Use It Challenge - I used Glitter Ice Stickles that covers Sharon's No Time Friday Challenge and I used Beates Weekend sketch! Phew!

Stamps: scroll background stamp: Flourishes, couple: A muse, Engaged: See D's wedding set
Paper: Papertrey white, soft sky, basic black SU
Ink: pitch black adirondack
Accessories: dimensionals, eyelets, cropadile, Ribbon: Papertreyink AquaMist, Silver ice stickles, corner rounder
Techniques: eyelets

And here's the Blog Candy!
