Something New....Steampunk

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. 

steam·punk
noun
1.
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:

Hello Family, Friends, Followers, & Fellow Crafters!!!

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!!! Here are some of the pages:
