Fun and Funky ATC Cards with the Graphic 45 "Steampunk Spells"

Hello dear friends and visitors!

I am up on the Graphic 45 blog today with a series of fun Halloween ATCs, featuring a retired collection "Steampunk Spells".

Although each and every of the Graphic 45 collections is spectacular and we want to have them all, there are collections which we like the best. For me one of those collections will always be the Steampunk Spells, not only because it is amazing in terms of colors, characters and patterns, but also because it was the first G45 collection that I had a chance to work with and signify my acquaintance with this brand.

I am almost sure that a lot of you, G45’ers have it in your stash so I hope to inspire you to start using it. I don’t think these papers are available for purchase now, so those who do not have them, can just wait for the collection to be reissued as a “Deluxe Collector’s Edition”. I believe this will definitely happen one day :)








Besides the G45 paper, I've used decorative chipboard from the studio "Prosto Nebo". There are lots of steampunk designs of chipboard in the store. To translate the page from Russian to English (or any other language and to read about the rules of order and delivery, please use the "Google Translate" button at the right top corner of the store page).

If you want to make an order, you can pay with PayPal. Just register, add the desired items to the cart and once you have an order id number, just drop an e-mail to domikruk@yandex.ru  and ask for an invoice.

Here are some more of the details (click on the images below to see in full size).

A Remake of the Vintage Suitcase Mini Album

Good afternoon everyone!

I am here today with a remake of an old project of mine from the 2015. I made it back than with the "Craft Reflections" paper collection by Graphic 45, I also remade it one time with the Prima paper in 2016, and now in 2017 I have another version, created for an order with the paper from Kaisercraft, mostly from the collection which is called "The Art of Life", although the outside paper with postage stamps is from the "Provincial Collection".

I love the muted brown colors which help to achieve a vintage look.




Just like the original album, it has 8 pocket pages which were created using envelopes. Card stock was used for the photo mats, which are put inside each one of the pages. 










When I only started my You Tube channel, I've posted there some basic instruction for putting this album together, so if you want to make a similar album, you might wanna have a look at them here.


Thanks for stopping by.

Graphic 45 - Cityscapes Travel Mini Album

Hello everyone!
It's been a long time now since I've posted a project and to shake the dust off my fingers and the working surface in my studio, I created a fairly simple mini album, using one of my favorite paper lines from Graphic 45 - Cityscapes.




The album has 4 top loading pocket pages, each has a vertical photo mat. There are interactive pockets and flaps throughout the album too, which makes it fun to flip and to fill with the photos.











On one of the pages, I've  added a little notebook for writing down some memorable moments of a trip.





The tags and pockets set, as well as the decorative chipboard make the embellishing process fun and easy.

I had an honor of teaching a workshop for creating this album in a scrap store called "My Scrap Heaven"  and I want to thank all the wonderful ladies who joined it!










Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
