TIME please!

I love the theme of clocks on layouts as they represent an array of 'time periods', either present, past or visions for the future.  It's what scrapbooking is all about really - capturing moments in time, whether very recent past, our historical past, the present day or even what we hope to achieve in the future.  Tando Creative have some more fab chippies in this theme and when I saw them I just had to order some to share with you all.
Steampunk Clock and Hands


Clock Hands

Clock Mask

The Clock Mask has been around for a while but it is a 'timeless' piece of kit (excuse the pun!).  Added together these products would make some gorgeous layouts and cards.  The Clock Mask is already in stock and the other chipboard items will be in stock very soon - watch this space!

What period in time do you tend to scrap - present day, past photographs of your family, heritage, or perhaps all of them?  Leave a comment on this post today and if you qualify (please see rules so you don't miss out), I will enter your name into the blog candy draw.  Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Good on you April. A lovely keepsake for your Mum! I think a lot of cardmakers make that transition from cards to scrapbooking really well as they already have the skills. Keep up the good work and thanks for stopping by today. Ann x

  7. For me I usually scrap the present, but I have been verrrry slow lately and have a couple of years to catch up on! I too love clock faces on layouts, I have been planning a circular layout for my youngest son with him at 3 months, 6 months and 12 months with clock hands pointing to the numbers on the clock face. Really need to get into action! x

  8. I only started scrapbooking last summer,I used to make cards and keepsakes, until I met my old school friend Jaqi... I have loads of photos of my Grandchildren and wanted to do something with them, so when Jaqi suggested doing a scrapbook, that was it lol... so, so far I'm scrapping from the past, and loving it, remembering all the fun times we've had...

  11. I do scrap some present day Grandchildren and family ocassions etc but my love is my collection of vintage family photographs of which I still have hundreds to scrapbook, they are making a lovely set of family vintage albums which will be passed down to my grandchildren so that they have a pictorial family tree.
    I love all the clock masks , stamps , chipboard pieces, toppers etc they always look lovely and lend themselves to all manor of projects
