A Ladies Diary Carriage Clock! Revealed!

Good Morning Everyone!

Thank you for joining me over at Graphic 45's blog to check out, A Ladies Diary Carriage Clock.  If you haven't gone over, please go!!!!  By now, you surely must know how much I love Kristin Wilson of Kristin Wilson Handmade...She has created the coolest things on the G45 blog today!  Gotta see 'em!

What I have created you ask?  A Carriage Clock from the lovely and beautiful Graphic 45's,  A Ladies Diary paper collection.  I simply love this little clock.  So many designers are making fabulous big clocks.  God knows I love them and have done them, but this time I went small and simple.  I think that is why I love it so much.  I hope you do too!

Here is, A Ladies Diary Carriage Clock....









This clock would make a wonderful gift for the upcoming holidays and there will be a pattern for it soon.  I know, you've heard that before!  LOL!  But, I love this little clock so much I want to make it in other papers as well.  So a pattern is inevitable...It really is so easy and fast....I promise....I may do my first kit...what do you think?

Thanks for looking and have an awesome day!

  2. Jim,, this clock is wonderful and it would make a great gift. It would be fantastic to have a pattern. I already have ideas for other papers. Love the idea of this being your first kit! Does that mean you are getting closer to doing a ustream or other live class? Pretty please. And oh yeah, Kristin's box is fantastic! Hugs, Sharon

  5. Jim your clock is really fabulous! If you do a kit will you make the pattern alone also available for those of us who can't afford kits??? That would be great. Hope you feel better soon.

    1. Yes, I agree, most of the kit prices are waaay too expensive, and you may already have some/most of the components - just need the pattern!

  10. Love, love, love this clock. Yes, please, I'll take a pattern and/or kit. My papers are yelling at me - they want to be a clock. ;-)
    Hope you're feeling better.

  11. I would buy a kit in a heartbeat. Man cannot live by crafting alone! He must have money to buy his wares!

  12. Jim, your clock is fantastic! A pattern would be wonderful; a kit would be great. Anything you choose to do would be received with open arms! Thanks for the constant inspiration. I just gave a friend a birthday card modeled after your Ladies Diary card and she absolutely loved it. She is taking it to her family in Dallas over the Thanksgiving holiday to show it off. Your talented ideas travel everywhere!

  18. I love this and can't wait for the tutorial. Know exactly what papers I'm using, Romance novel, and it's going into my craft room.

  19. I would buy that kit. I think I'd actually finish that kit. I've done well with your tutorials. I bought a 4 kit subscription from another website and after I tried the first one, I had scrap paper and no project.

  20. Hi Jim. I’ll just pop in to say thank you! Thank you because you share all the tutorials with us, they are amazing!!! Your fantasy has obviously no limits! Love it!

  21. Love this Clock! How small is the clock? I think it would make a great kit and you could do a U-Stream showing how to put it together! I love the projects you make. I also bought the fiskars PROcision bypass rotary trimmer after watching your video and I JUST LOVE THIS CUTTER! I cut heavy chipboard, foam core and fun foam that was super thick and it cut everything just beautifully. Also your idea for notching hinges with the fiskars zigzag punch was wonderful. I tried the one from EK Success sometime ago (it was like grassy fringe) but it didn't work as well until fiskars came out with this punch! Thanks for all of your projects and creativity to inspire the rest of us mere mortals!
    Happy crafting,
    Linn

  34. I'm a little late to the party Jim, I'm just now getting through emails and finding the clock I heard you talking about in the crypt video. LOVED the crypt by the way! Excellent techniques for all sorts of different occasions/uses! I also love the tag album inside! I look forward to your next pattern!

  36. Wow. Fantastico. Yes we definitely need a pattern. But I could not justify buying a kit however much u like it. I have seriously too much stash that needs using so no kits for me
