Steampunk Spells Project

Here are some pictures from my Steampunk Spells project using gorgeous Graphic 45 collection.

I am entering this on a blog challenge for October "Something Spooky" over at Country View Craft.  You can find there amazing blog over at 

I will keep adding more to the Haunted House as I acquire bits n bobs to help create the scene.

 This is the inside of the haunted house. The photo album sits on the shelf perfectly.  The bottles are mini bottles I found at a garden centre.

I used blue acrylic paint to reflect the blue from the collection, Americana Weathered Wood crackle glaze and then black acrylic paint on top.  I LOVE IT, I got so engrossed in watching the paint crack, so much fun and easily amused lol.


Lots of hardware, fussy cutting, Glossy Accents and layering on the front cover. So much fun.

All the right hand pages have haunted house shaped pages all decorated individually throughout the album.

On the back of each haunted house there are places to add photos, pockets for keepsakes, tags or mini books.

Every page has lots of mini books for either journalling or have photo mats and everyone is different.  The wings on this page are made from chipboard with a G45 brad and flowers in the centre.

How fun is this page.  Lots of fussy cutting, I used Gelatos on the cog, backed stickers onto cardstock and used lots of the cut outs to add fun.  Bats fly too from elastic thread and the cat and fence border was created using my Sizzix EClips machine with the Holiday cartridge.

Lots of hidden pockets throughout adding interest and surprises.  The lady on the left hiding behind the corset is another mini place to journal.  Chipboard pieces hide throughout and found pulling the ribbon.

Inbetween every page there is space for even more tags and photo mats.  I used black card stock and stamped this to create photo mats for I between all the pages.

Love these pages, so much to find, see and play with.  The spooky tree was also cut using the EClips machine.

The last page has to be something special.  Who wants to run out of steam and at the end it's boring, not me I try and save something extra special, innovative and playful right up to the end. I used a piece of recycled acetate, added clock hands to the cogs and created a pull out page.

I have completed a video and when I get it uploaded I will attach it.

This was such a fun and special album to complete and I hope you find it exciting and full of fun as I have.

Thanks for stopping by.
