"Steampunk World" Tutorial - A Journal and An ATC Box


Vectoria Designs has released a new steampunk themed collection, called "Steampunk World". It is beautiful!! You can check out and purchase the paper collection here.

In the meanwhile, let me share with you the pictures of a project that I created using this collection.

There is a journal and a box with a couple of ATC cards in it. 

The journal has a shaker on the spine, which I really wanted to fill with cogs. I hope you like the idea!

Side by side the journal and the box look perfect!

Here are some more pictures of the whole set:

There was a really fun element in the cut apart sheets, which gave me an idea to create this faux wrist watch which serves now as a book mark in a journal.

The journal has 3 signatures and I have a flip through available in the beginning of the tutorial. 
I will link it for you at the end of the post.

If you like what you see and want to know how it was made, join me in the tutorial!

Inspiration Monday - Travel - La-La Land Crafts


"Travel" is out theme for this week at the La-La Land Crafts blog, so I decided to use Marci with Suitcase Rubber Stamp on my today's card:

I made this card in the style of one of my previous cards, with white being a prevailing color. I like how these cards look.

Marci was colored with Copics:
Skin: E04, E11, E00, E000 + R20
Eyes: G99, G94
Hair: E47, E44, E43, E42
Hat Boots: RV29, RV25, RV23, RV21 + R01
Dress: B39, B37, B34, B32 + BG23
Suitcase: E27, E25, E3, E1
Yellow: E37, Y19

I really adore the new tiny suitcase die, I used it for the first time today. Gluing the tiny elements down to the suitcase's base was fun. Just look at the super tiny strap buckles!

The stitched clouds and the "sun smiles" dies are also perfect!

Here is the list of products that I used:

ATC Cards with Craspire Wax Seal Embellishments


I have a short video up on my channel, where I share a way of embellishing ATC cards with wax seal embellishments. I love making ATC cards, they always "save" me when I don't feel like creating something more serious or when I am a bit under the weather inspirationwise.

The wax seals that I used are from Craspire. If you want to have a look at the specific stamps that I showed in the video, the links are below:
Flower Wax Seal Stamps

For cutting the hydrangea flowers out and getting rid of the wax edges, you'll need a pair of sharp tipped scissors. Cutting through feels super satisfying (like cutting soap) 😉

Now to the video. You can either click on the video window below, or copy and paste this link into your browser - https://youtu.be/AlMbKsmbc-c
I hope you enjoy!
