Happy Father's Day, Dad!

My dad isn't on social media. At all. He sometimes finds something we see funny, but he doesn't participate. So, I can share this gift I gave him and he won't know. However, he knows I love him. I've been close to my dad my whole life. We've spent days together in the woods and our favorite place to be together is the Deer Shack. While there in November, I had the inspiration for this gift and am glad to finally see him love it.

I used the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack to make the "frames" for the pictures. I used as many textures as I could, make boards over lap, etc. The base is something I bought at a Stampin' Rummage from a friend. I used modge podge to adhere the paper to the frame as well as to adhere the pictures to base. (there are two layers). The clock came with. I also had wooden numbers I bought at a craft store to add to the face of the clock. but when I opened the package on Saturday, there were no 6's or 9's in the bag! With no time to get more, I gave it to him blank. He loved it that way, anyway. I used my Basic Black Marker to add the nails.

Stampin' Up! is on trend with the realistic wood, but in my family, wood has been essential to our upbringing-logging, wood fired furnaces, campfires, and general appreciation of all things wood. The perfect gift for my dad.

I hope you, too, are able to craft your way to more great memories!

Happy Stamping!
