Oh how I love Crate Paper...let me count the ways.  I was so honored to be asked to Guest Design for Crate Paper this month (blog post here).  Loved it all and made sure I showcased all of their beautiful papers, buttons, stickers and those adorable itty bitty clothes pins.  My first project was created from a wooden knob, wire and practically a little of everything Crate Paper...  
Created five hanging tags as the background for each photo, which all can be changed out as you wish.  After completing the first project, at some point, creating my own clock came to mind.  Walked the aisles of the craft store and in the wood working section found the pieces for making this...
Used the Crate Paper wood frame, one layer of paper and one layer of chipboard to create the top clock portion of the clock.  The large circle base was covered in layers of paper and stickers, added a screw to hang the clock and all set. Now my little men have requested a "boy" version for their rooms.  Just be prepared to pull out the power drill for this one.
 And, needed to create a couple of cards using those amazing chipboard stickers...

Aahhh...still in love :)  Hope you are all enjoying your day!
