Tando Creative Birthday Blog Hop

If you've arrived here from Barjan B Crafts you are on the right track.  If you would like a chance to win some fabulous Tando Creative products, please join the hop and start back at the Tando Creative BlogThe next stop on the hop is at Creative Craft World.

When Di from Tando asked who would like to join this blog hop I jumped at the chance because I just love all things Tando!  You can see from the left hand side of this page that I have a (little teensy) addiction to the Tando Desktop Storage handbags!  Today though, I want to show you what I made using one of the fab new ranges from Tando ... Tando Chipboard Clocks!


These chipboard clocks come complete with clock mechanism - all you have to add is the battery - and decorate them of course!

I chose the Printer Tray Style Clock to showcase today using Prima 'Craftsman' patterned papers to decorate.  The chipboard elements I used are Come Fly with Me from the Works of Parts Range.  The cogs are Hearts Cogs Mix and the clock face is a stamp from Crafty Individuals.

There are loads of variations you could use to decorate this clock - you could use the Andy Skinner Clock Class Accessory Kit that was used in his workshop to decorate the Carriage Style Clock.  The Cuckoo Clock is another favourite of mine and you can see that one decorated here.

If you are visiting this blog today to enter The Scrapbook Garden Blog Candy giveaway, please leave a comment as usual and you will be entered in the blog candy draw for today. You must be a follower of this blog to enter (see rules).   Thanks for stopping by and good luck in the Blog Hop and The Scrapbook Garden Blog Candy giveaway.
