Steampunk Destinations - Mid Month Reminder

Yay! So great to see you here at our little Steampunk corner!

Ready for some more inspiration for our actual challenge "Steampunk Destinations"? Or are you curious about this month's prize sponsor? Then this is the right post for you ;)

Team B has travelled to some beautiful spots too and if you haven't seen the makes of team A yet, you should check them out too! To do so - and to get to the link up to enter our challenge - click HERE.

This month's prize sponsor is lovely Iris from Irishteddy's!

Once more she will give away a 10 Euro voucher to spend with her well sorted online store. All you have to do to get eligible for the win is enter a proper project to this month's challenge and join in the steampunk fun!

Now on to the creations of team B:
(for more details get to the teamies' blogs by clicking the names or the images. Comments are highly appreciated of course ;)

Mrs. Shadow Box here :-)
(that's my new nickname), but I love these objects because the depth creates a fascinating and dramatic visual result. I had this earworm in my head: ''I've never been to New York'' ... and so I have made a 3D project with the title ''Dream Dancer''. More details and discoveries can be seen on my blog.

My 'Steampunk Destination' is Victorian London - I think that would be one of my time travel destinations (if there were the possibility!) Certainly Victorian London fits a steampunk style and I have added my usual vintage techniques to make a sepia tinted picture and frame.

I found that my ancestors travelled to the most wonderful places! For this LO I used colour copies of photographs which show them hiking a glacier! Wow! They were real explorers back then, weren't they?


So many wonderful places to travel and so many possibilities to get there! We can't wait to learn about your favourite (steampunk) destinations! Click HERE to get to the challenge. It is open until the end of the month and Top3 and prize winner will be announced on Saturday, 6th December. 

In the meantime we wish you a happy crafting time!

Claudia and your SASPC team!

Steampunk Destinations - the November Challenge

Don't we all love to travel! Going to new places, learning about foreign culture, enjoying foreign cuisine, visiting wonderful sights all around the so exciting, isn't it!

There are a lot of destinations around our globe worth visiting. Think about capitals like Paris, New York, London, Venice, Vienna, Barcelona, Hong Kong, Kairo, name just a fraction. But also nature highlights or exceptional historic buildings can be destinations worth the Niagara Falls, the Chalk Cliffs of Ruegen, Mount Everest, the Pyramids, the Eiffel Tower, Miss Liberty, and...and...and...

So whatever you associate with "Destinations" - it is what we want to see (steampunked of course) with your projects for our November Challenge:

Steampunk Destinations


here we come!

Before I show you the fab creations from Team A, let give you a quick reminder about the winners post which will go online next Saturday. So make sure you check back to find out if you made it to the Top 3 or won the prize sponsored by Tando Creative!

But now let's move on to our next destination - "DT Inspiration":
(if you want to travel to the blog of a DT member to have a closer look, just click the name or the image. By clicking on the images you also get a larger view)


For November I'll go to... Paris, with a book. Not an e-book but un u-book. The background is cardboard, the hinge is fabric. Paint, images, charms, dies, stamp..... and of course Eiffel Tower !

All pages with details  are on my blog

I think Paris is a great destination. See more on my blog

If you gave me a time machine, I'd travel to Victorian London. 
You don't have one? Blimey. Well, I guess I'll just make myself a tag, then. ;)


Hach!*) I am ever so proud of my fabulous team!

The challenge will be open until the end of the month. On the 15th of each month we provide you with more inspiration from team B and reveal the prize sponsor for this month's challenge too. So don't forget to come back then to find out.

As usual we offer two separate collections for your 2D and 3D creations. 

Have a lot of Steampunk creating fun! We are always blown away by all the artistry and imagination of the projects you enter. You all make our Steampunk Corner such a special place. Thank you so much! we eagerly (and impatiently) wait to see your new projects for our challenge! ;)

Hugs and happy crafting,
Claudia and the SASPC-Team!
