LLC Retreat Day 2 - Holiday Clock

Are you ready for 9 more projects from Day 2 of the retreat?
This is project #8
Original design was a Steam punk Theme. My spin  on this project was to create a Holiday Theme using pattern paper from my Stash.  I believe the paper is from the Authentique Holiday Collection (retired). All hardware was supplied at the retreat. 
La-la Land Craft Dies used: Build-a-Frame Stitched (Small), Pierced Scalloped Circles, Filigree Elements Border, Folding Banners, Postage Stamp, Joy which can all be found here.
CC Designs Die used: Scalloped Circles Die 
Papertrey Ink Die used: Large Ric Rac
Finished clock measures, from the roof top to bottom of pendulum is 11" x 19". 
Using the paper, these presents were punched out to make the end of the pendulum. Mat it with the Stitched Circles die and sandwich it in between the die cut Papertrey Ink Large Ric Ric die.
Here's the top of the clock: some berries from my stash as well as paper poinsettias and gold adhesive flat back pearls for the centers. To hang this project, the wire "vine" from the berries is made into a loop. 
A red Folding Banner die here with a die cut "joy" (new release for July 2017) sits on top of the banner.
At the bottom left corner sits a cluster of berries, red and white paper poinsettias:
The main focus: the clock!  The face is 4-1/4" diameter. The pattern paper mat is 4". The clock face is made with die cut letters and black brads. The hands are trimmed from the La-la Land Crafts Heart Handles with a black brad in the center of the clock holding the hands secure.
Above the clock face is a window secured by hardware supplied at the retreat. The door opening has the Filigree Elements underneath the hardware opening. The door mats are die cut using the Postage Stamp die.
Opening the doors, reveal a frame made using the small Build-a-Frame die.  A family photo can be put into this frame.
This clock can be used through out the holidays.  Thank you for stopping by today to visit. Stay tuned for more projects from the retreat.
