“Time Machine” papers have images of clocks, gears and machinery together with the rustic feel, textures and tones, I had so much fun creating these projects for you. These papers will appeal to every types of Guy – In Australia, we celebrate Father’s Day here on the first Sunday in September.

Here, I added some of the PT221 Printed Washi Tape Clocks new release tape from Kaisercraft, to create a border…. I think it’s a really cool effect!!!! then I layered many of the collectables clock and gears pieces with foam tape.

Gift wrapping is now so easy….. I decorated a simple black gift bag and added the special papers, collectables and stickers, to match my card. This gift bag could be re-cycled time and time again.

After creating your card/s, don’t forget to decorate the outside of the envelope, it couldn’t be easier with the Clear stamps. I have used here the CS236 Clear stamp set from the “Time Machine’ collection to decorate the envelope.


and my last ideaCreate a layout or A4 page layout of a special memory or event, once completed it can be placed in a frame, ready to be displayed in his special office or study.

    Hi Adriana, love your cards, I think my favourite is the shirt box/card. I guess it could be easily? adapted for a card, I’ll have a go anyway. What part of Australia are you in? I came from Adelaide to the UK in 1970 intending to stay 3 years, and still here. Cheers and thankyou, Marilyn.
