Whether you are a dedicated tag or card maker, art journaler or mixed media lover - this might be the right place for you!
For more information about the rules and the little "steampunk/industrial twist" we ask of you, please check the "about" stuff and then simply jump in and create!

If you are new to steampunk and not sure if this is "your thing", maybe take a look at our winners gallery on pinterest (use the linking button on our side bar).

SanDee&amelie's 2017 Steampunk Winter Special Challenge

Hi, servus and welcome to part one of our annual "winter special" challenge!

As always we will be doing a two months long challenge that will start from today and be open until the end of December. We are doing this so you and my DT can all focus on Christmas and Advent crafting and preparations and still find the time to play along with us. And as this is going to be a two months long challenge, the usual limit of three entries per player will be changed to five entries per player (just in case someone has a real steampunk/industrial crafting urge ;)

Team A are sharing their projects with you today and team B will be sharing theirs on the 1st of December (so you will not only get additional inspiration but also have a reminder to play along). There will also be some more "boozybear special" feature posts on here during the next two months. So stay tuned! ;)

I have also decided to add a little prize (donated by myself) to the two prize bundles from our generous challenge sponsors DecoArt media and boozybear chipboard pieces - so you can become one of three prize winners this time! As always they will be drawn randomly among all proper entries from our winter special challenge and announced shortly after the start of our January challenge.

My prize will be a little surprise...and also a surprise is the steampunk chipboard package from lovely Glenda aka boozybear...

...and there's this fab bundle of DecoArt media goodies to be won as well:

Definitely worth playing along, aren't they? 


But now it's time for the makes of my wonderful ladies from Team A! Yay!

created an altered box in an altered frame

I love all the parts she has used to create her assemblage in the box lid!

used Modelling Paste, DecoArt media products and her magic to create this
amazing artwork

Incredible, isn't it?

is sending out "a little Christmas greeting" with her beautifully textured project
"to all steampunk lovers"

has created this amazing altered box for you
that she calls
"boite à heure"
("hour box")

and last but not least

who is sharing with you her 
"inspirational board in blues and gold"

Loads of inspiration to get your mojo going, right? 
So we hope you will find some time to create some steampunk or industrial style projects in between Christmas crafting and play along! 

Once more: our challenge is open until the end of December this time (and there will be a little additional surprise prize for one lucky winner)! A propos: our prize winners and Top 5 from the October challenge will be announced on Saturday, November 11th!!! And another boozybear special is to come soon too. 

In the meantime:
hugs and happy crafting!
