PCS Acorn Pocket Blog Hop

Welcome to the Paper Crafters Sampler Acorn Pocket Blog Hop. Autumn Amidst is the title for September's Paper Crafters Sampler, and the exclusive template for this acorn pocket is included in the issue. You may have arrived here from Karen's blog. Don't you love her take on the template?

I ended up using the template to create a decor item, a hanging acorn.

I reduced the size of the template to 75% to make a bit smaller acorn and used traditional colors and oak leaves to embellish.  The cap of the acorn is glued to the base to allow for hanging and display.


I can't wait for a moment to create some more... I was going to try even smaller acorns for the rest of my branches.

Paper: Crushed Curry, More Mustard, Soft Suede, Early Espresso; Ink: More Mustard, Soft Suede; Accessories: Wood button, Linen Thread, Sponge, Square Lattice EF, Woodgrain EF, Autumn Accents die, Big Shot.

Make sure you visit all the design team members' blogs for fabulous ideas!  Next up along the hop is our newest member, Wendy Fischer. She has fabulous creativity! If you get lost, head over to Paper Crafters Sampler's website for the hop participants' links (left-hand margin).


Thanks for stopping by!
