Whether you are a dedicated tag or card maker, art journaler or mixed media lover - this might be the right place for you!

October Spotlight

Time for a spotlight, don't you think too?

I found this little treasure I want to share with you today. It's from Amy Petrou:

I love the stitched together metal plates - this idea is sooo brilliant (and if allowed to I might borrow it some time ;).

Thank you for the awesome inspiration, Amy! Please, feel free to take the badge for your site.

We already have an awesome bundle of lovely projects entered to our October challenge, but there is still more time to go....and maybe win the gorgeous Red Lead stencils ;)

Hugs and happy crafting!

September Prize Winner and Top3

Oooops, sorry I am a bit late today, but things have been a bit hectic during the last days as I slipped in the shower two days ago and almost broke my ribs - seems I was lucky "just" to have some heavy bruises on my left side (moving is a bit hurtful and raising my left arm is not a good idea at the moment) and the x-ray that had to be done didn't show any severe injuries.... *phew!

So I am here now (at last!!) to bring to you the Top3 of our september challenge "Dolls 'n Robots" and the randomly drawn prize winner of the 10 Euro voucher for Irishteddy's online store.

The entries were - as usual - absolutely fantastically thought-outside-the-box ones and we loved them all! We really appreciate the amount of creativity and thought you always put into the makes you enter with our challenges! Thank you so much!

As there were only three entries with our 2D collection, we decided to just vote a Top winner...

Here they come (in no particular order):



Congrats, ladies! Soooo very well done! Please, feel free to grab  the Top3 badge for display on your blogs! 

And now on to our prize winner. And random.org picked Nr.9

which is 


Congrats , Tina, you won a 10 Euro voucher for shopping with Irishteddy's well sorted online store! (Thank you so much, Iris, for being our generous sponsor! ;)

Please, contact me (see link at the sidebar) for further details!

(I always add the numbers of the 3D collection's entries to the numbers of the 2D collection before using random.org, so #9 over at the 3D collection is actually the 3D entry #6 - just in case any of you wondered how this works).

Our new challenge for october has already started - this month we are playing Steampunk Tic Tac Toe! We would love you to join us and have fun!

Hugs and happy crafting,

Tic Tac Toe - The October Challenge

Hello, dear Steampunk friends!

It's time for another challenge and this time we decided to play 

Steampunk Tic Tac Toe

with you.

So all you have to do is choose three ingredients from one straight line of the diagram (horizontally, vertically or diagonally) and use them for your Steampunk creations. As usual we provide you with two separate collections for the 2D and 3D projects (so, please, pay attention to enter your projects to the correct inlinkz collection).

We were once again blown away by your entries for our last challenge, all of them being so creative and unique!!! Thank you so much for playing with us - we are so happy to have you so constantly with us! You really make this spot so special!

The Top3 from the september challenge will be announced on saturday as will the randomly drawn prize winner of the 10 Euro voucher for Irishteddy's store! So, please, come back next saturday to check if you are one of the chosen.


 As usual we have an awesomely talented guest with us and I am so happy to introduce Tina from Tina's Craftworld to you!

If you want to be with us as our Guest Designer (which we would LOVE you to) just add GD to your name when entering our challenge via the inlinkz-tool. We will contact you for further details then.

So here comes Tina's make:

Isn't it amazing? Tina chose "Texture - Wings - Gears" for her adorably altered handbag.
I just love the colours, all the steampunk embellishments and that winged cross!!! An utterly whimsy and artsy make and sooo inspiring! If you visit her blog you will find a How To for this terrific project!

Tina also was willing to tell us a bit about her:

Hello ladies

Here a little bit of me: 

Today I am pleased and honored to be the guest designer for the month of October on the challenge blog Sandee & amelie's Steampunk.
Hello my name is Tina Suitella  I'm a single mom and I live near Amsterdam.
I have been scrapbooking and card making for over 15 years. 
Like many of you, scrapbooking is a big part of my life and I do it almost every day. 
I also enjoy cooking making cakes and decorating, home décor, reading and art. if I have a certain style, 
no I do not think so I find everything beautiful, mixed media steampunk vintage and romantic layouts and I like to use a lot of flowers on my layout.

Hugs Tina

Thank you, Tina, for being with us and for creating such a wonderful steampunk bag for our Tic Tac Toe challenge!


For more inspiration look at what SanDee and me created for you:

also chose Texture, Wings and Gears for her creation:

and I went for Metal, Texture and Letters:

We are (impatiently *lol) looking forward to seeing your fab entries soon (with the2D and 3D collections below)! 

Hugs and happy crafting!
