Clock Lamp!


Hello Everyone and WELCOME to all my new followers! SO happy to see new faces on this little blog of mine! Make sure you leave me a comment and say HI so I can get to know you as well!

Today, I want to share with you my second attempt at the SVG Cuts Facebook Lamp Challenge! This time around I stuck to the rules, LOL! My inspiration came from the paper used, DCWV Tattered Time Stack. I love the vintage, "MAN"ly look of it! 

So here is my lamp, LOVE how it turned out :)


The files I used all came from SVG Cuts, Maison de Madeline SVG Kit. I've been wanting to make the wall clock and thought why not incorporate it in the lamp. 


 Here is a closer look at the lamp shade. I really wanted to make the clock functional but couldn't find a small enough clock movement kit for this project. I did find the next best thing... Tim Holtz's Idea-ology Time Pieces. His stuff is AWESOME!


Side view of the lamp shade and all the gears.


Below is a close up of the details on the base of the lamp.  Stamp comes from Stampendous Time Flies collection. I finished pull cord chain with the cutest Flair button from Paper Play Sudio, I thought "dreamer" was the perfect little touch for a lamp. 


And my favourite part of the lamp is actually seeing it all lit up! Isn't it pretty?!? I think this is going to be the perfect Father's Day gift for my hubby! He collects watches, so I know he is gonna love this!


Thanks for stopping by. Hope you've enjoyed my version of the lamp. If you're a paper crafter make sure you enter the challenge! It's really all about fun and pushing your creativity, and if you win something it's a bonus!

Happy Crafting :)
