-{Acorn template blog hop PCS}-

Welcome to the PCS blog hop, and a special "hi" if you have come from Wendy's blog {here}

This month's template from the Paper Crafters Sampler is to make a shaped pocket to put a gift in (you can purchase it {here}. The original template is to make an acorn shape, however I had a play and came up with this strawberry.


The template is really easy to use, just print it out on the wrong side of the patterned paper or cardstock, cut it out, decorate and stick together.  I used the Square Lattice Folder to give it some texture, and cut leaves from the Leaves Sizzix die (which is retiring this month).  The flower is made from the 5 petal flower punch (also retiring) and the centre from the Boho Blossom punch. I added the seeds with the white gel pen from Stampin' Up!

"Sublime Nuptials" is the theme of August's Paper Crafters Sampler.
Click on picture below for more details.


The template this month is for a Swan Boat.
Here is my first creative take on it.


I heat embossed with white, then brayered over it to make the background.


I sponged the swan and highlighted with Champagne Mist.
