The Angel Company Blog Hop- Flavor of Fall

It is time for another Angel Company Blog Hop! This one is all about fall. It is defiantly feeling like fall here in my little corner of the world, we were having a lovely Indian Summer, beautiful sunny days and cool nights. Then just like that, rainy, wet, and cold. But I love Fall all the same, the air is crisp and the leaves turn all kinds of colors, Halloween and Thanksgiving are some of my most favorite holidays. Fall is good!
I found these lovely shadow boxes on super sale and I knew I could make something wonderful with them. I am thinking they will be great gifty items with a set of  four or five different seasonal themed scenes that can be changed for each season! This is my Fall scene, I love these scarecrows and sentiment from "Hanging Out", the pumpkins and crow are from a retired set "Sunshiny Day".  I love how this turned out, and I am excited to get started on the other seasons!
This is a closer view, I used Copic markers to color my images and Penelope paper and cardstock. Go HERE to follow or join in on this blog hop, remember only Angel Company stamps! I hope that you enjoy this blog hop, there are sure to be some amazing and inspiring art work!!

On another note...
I have not forgotten the directions for the door hanger project, it has just been a kind of tough couple of weeks here. I apologize for not getting these directions posted before now, but here they are, better late than never!
Using a piece of 81/2" x 11" cardstock, cut one strip 3 15/16" x 11" (there is a reason for this funky number, really) and one piece 4 1/2" x 9". Score the the 11" piece at 1 1/2".  Score the 9" piece at 1/2, 1 1/2, 2 1/2, 6 1/2, 7 1/2, 8 1/2 inches. Flip over ans score at 1, 2, 7 and 8 inches, this will create an accordion fold on each side.

Apply double sided tape as shown. Add a strip of patterned paper 3 3/4" x6" to the top of the 11" strip of card stock (score mark should be at the bottom) use a nestability circle or circle punch to create to hole for the door nob.


Remove paper on double sided tape and pinch bottom of the accordion fold together, like photo on the right.
Fold up the bottom of the larger strip, add double sided tape to bottom of the fold and adhere to the middle bottom of the "pocket" piece, with the accordion folds on each side. Like photo to the left.
 Fold in sides and adhere to create pocket. 
Add a 3 1/2" x 4" piece of patterned paper to the front of the pocket and decorate for the theme of your choice! Fill with goodies and give to someone special,it's sure to make their day!!
For this door hanger I used Emma Paper, Kraft Cardstock, and "Thanking God" a level B hostess set, all from The Angel Company. I hope that you will give one of these a try, and if you do let me know I would love to see what you come up with!! This would be a fun and easy project for a Fun Shop Party or a hostess group too!

Have a great day!
