Steampunk Photo Album

It’s been too long since my last posting. I don’t know if anyone is still stopping by to check in or if anyone even cares any more. If you are still out there I really appreciate it and a comment would be welcome to let me know.

I have been working on several different projects involving lots of paper. If there are any scrapbookers out there you are well aware of the wonderful papers out there from which to choose.

Anyway, here are a few pages from an album that is not quite finished. It is very closely made like the one that Kathryn of The Scrap Beach did a good while back. She did a few things in her album that I had never done before and wanted to try.

The album was made using Graphic45s’ Steampunk Debutante themed scrapbook paper.

I stamped and embossed the butterfly onto a piece of the scrapbook paper which opens to reveal a place to journal or a photo. The gear on the tag holds the flaps shut.

The next page has several photo mats that flip up. Love the gears.

Here is the page underneath. Love the headdress bling. This is the first time I ever used this kind of embellishment.

The big blue flower on this next page is one I made using cardstock. I glued an orange crystal bling in the center. The smaller flowers were white and I sprayed them with blue inks. Love the butterflies!

This page has a long pocket with a tag. The top edge of the pocket was cut using one of Tim Holtz' On the Edge dies. A photo or whatever can be placed in the empty space of the page. Love the key and the clockface. The flowers here started out white and were sprayed with three different colored inks.

These are tags that I made and stamped.
