Exciting News - Nut'n Better Gift Set

Hello everyone!  Yep I've got some exciting news, I'm this week's guest designer over at the Our Creative Corner blog!  The hostess for this week is Kim Price and the theme for her challenge is Recycle, along with using something resalvaged/recycled on your card or project she asks that you also use the color green.
The projects I have for today, I'm also entering in for this month's Papertrey Ink August Blog Hop.  As you can see from the PTI inspiration photos below, the challenge was to create a project with texture, something with either herringbone, tweed, burlap, felt, corduroy, houndstooth or argyle which I attempted to do with my gift set. 
For my card and jar full of nuts I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Autumn Acorns and Modern Wood Mats.  For the recycled material on my two projects I used cardboard, the corrugated banner and die cut border on my card and the corrugated cardboard tag for my gift jar.  I've incorporated the color green into my projects with the designer paper and acorns and I've also embossed a herringbone pattern into my background panel and used an Autumn color palette.


Supplies:  Autumn Acorn + dies, Modern Wood Mats, Mat Stack die, Banner die, Chevron die, Ribbon, Herringbone embossing folder, Button, Twine, Cardboard, Nestie dies, We R Memory Keepers designer paper, Jar, Foam tape.  Colors: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Really Rust, Old Olive.
 
Well that's it in a nut shell for me (pardon the pun), I hope you'll join in for this week's OCC challenge!
Thanks for stopping by!

Great gift set! Love how you used the recycled corrugated cardboard on both pieces.

Lynn, first thank you so much for being our guest designer this week. Your work is very beautiful and inspiring.
Second, what a very creative use of the various papers you used in this weeks project. I think the whole collection of the texture, wood grain, twine, cardboard and fall theme work beautifully together and you show-cased these PTI products superbly!
The pops of green are gorgeously added, as well! {smile}
I think your project will definitely inspire our followers to create something wonderful, too!
Hope your weekend is fabulous! hugs, sharon w.

ps. good luck with the August blog hop over @ PTI.
