And if you need a little additional inspiration to get you going, here are some makes from the design team to celebrate Christmas steampunk style ;)

has created this amazing "Wishes" tag and lighted two beautiful Christmas (or Advent) candles for you.

I love that little scroll at the bottom of the tag!

I guess the clock is counting down the days until Christmas Eve... ;)

went for traditional greens and reds for Christmas...
and for some cool texture

"Circuit to the Christmas Star"
shows how beautifully steampunk and a Christmas theme
can be fused

has come up with a stunning Christmas tag
that has some amazing crackle and hints of rusty shades and wire

and I

- Claudia -

had to play with some newly bought house dies and created a little 
winter scene on a Christmas tag, using various metal paints and other glitter effect paints alongside 
a good dose of faux rust on the houses

Even the snow has been stained with rust it seems... ;)


The team and I would like to wish you all 

and a Happy New Year!

We hope to see you play along with us again in 2019. Thank you to all our wonderfully creative and true players out there and to our generous sponsors for being part of this wonderful creative journey! You all rock and we wouldn't be here without you! Mwah! xxx
