Remember To Cherish each moment, Clock project using the new Teresa Collins Designs Summer Stories

I have to imagine that I'm not the only one who has been glued to the TV for days. I have just been  overwhelmed with emotions it has been devastation after devastation. Our thoughts and prayers go out to ALL of those that have been effected by the bombings in Boston and the horrific explosion in Texas.

My heart is soooo heavy, I feel so helpless. I think one of the most positive things I've heard is that runners literally ran to the nearest hospital to donate blood - That really wowed me, in the heat of the moment I don't know if that's what I would have thought to do first but that is what many did, it warmed my heart. There is so much goodness that people are doing for one another and I wish the news would share more of that. That mankind is kind and generous and loving.

Honestly I have not felt as motivated to create as much as I would have liked this week. I was looking over the new paper line - Summer Stories and it hit me like a ton of bricks, BAM! I created this project just for me... Have you heard - art heals? My heart does feel a little lighter. This piece has so much MEANING behind it. I hope you enjoy!

As I was creating this I wasn't thinking clearly, I was just creating... I actually glued the paper on the wrong way and in my attempt to remove it to start over it ended up looking pretty cool so I just rolled with it. See how it happened and how you too can re-create this super cool effect in the video below!

The flower side of the paper is what was originally wrapped around the entire frame and as I started removing the paper in layers the black pattern started showing through. You can see the grain of the wood!

The "remember" is from the 6x6 paper pad. It was the perfect size for the box!

Supplies used:
Teresa Collins Designs - Summer Stories -  Papers & Embellishments: Flowers, Dots, 6 x6 paper pad, Brads, Die cuts, Die cut borders
Window frame and candlestick - Ben Franklin Crafts
Clock mechanism - Michael's Crafts
Mod Podge - Matt


  1. Very cool...thanks for sharing it...must try it! hehehe.

  2. WOW this is fantastic! I wish I could think outside the card/layout box! I need to challenge myself more. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. I love this technique.. I just did it on a canvas! I have to say I like the look of the paper better after your oops..not to mean I didn't like it before! Also loving that you gave it the pedestal..super cool!


I read all of my comments. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me one, I really appreciate your thoughtfulness!!!
