I have never heard of the term Steampunk before! Very challenging to sit down and create a scrapbook pages using that theme. I had to do some major research first and came across a few layouts that I mixed together to create this one. Since I was unsure if my ideas would work I turned to My Digital Studio so that way if I made a mistake I could just undo!

Supplies all from My Digital Studio
Stamps: Convention 2011, Artistic Etchings, Cheerful Treat, Various Overlays
Ink: Basic Black
Paper: Very Vanilla, Basic Grey, Basic Black, Sahara Sand

Monster Birthday!

My nephew turned 5 last week! He is growing up so fast! This card is case'd from someone but unfortuantely I forgot to write down which blog I saw it on, thank you for this adorable idea! I had no idea what to make for him, but Punch Art to the rescue! At this age though I doubt he really paid any attention to the card, he passed it to his father to open while he went to attack the present!

Stamps: none!
Ink: none!
Paper: Basic Black, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White
Accessories: Word Window Punch, Petite Pennants Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, 1/2" Cirle Punch, Big Shot, Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Timeless Type Sizzlit Die
