I have been enjoying the Monthly Progressive Challenges by Sassy Studio Designs, over at Paper Craft Planet. I have always enjoyed their digis, but this month's challenge was just that for me. The theme was Steampunk. I had nothing on hand that I could use for Steampunk. Wait, I found some old metal pieces, but they weren't right for the look I was going for.
a genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery rather than advanced technology
I'm very proud to have tackled something new, so here they are:
I am still crafting, in the land of babies. These were my last projects and they have been delivered. I need to get back to finishing school albums. Can't let the kids graduate high school before I finish. LOL!!
A good friend of mine wanted a card for her 2 year old grand daughter. Elmo I could relate too, but I had to laugh when I needed to look up who Chica was. Has it been that long since I've watched Sprout? I couldn't figure out a way to get them on the same card so I made 2 cards instead.
Elmo is an .svg file and Chica was done, using the Cut & Print feature on my Silhouette Cameo.
I realized over the last 3 weeks how much I love making mini albums. No matter how many times mod podge gives me a fit, I continue to use it. I think it is partially the chipboard thickness and part user error. When my pregnant friend asked me to make her a scrapbook as a gift, I was in the beginning stages of making her a mini album. I had collected all the advice, but that was all. I put it away and started on her 12x12 album. Now, it would have been easy just to add the advice as a 2pg layout, but in my heart, I really wanted the mini album. I surprised her with it Sunday and she let out a huge scream and a big hug!!!
