A hearty welcome to SanDee&amelie's challenge blog!

Please, note, that this challenge blog is not related to any business and run without any profit by people, who do this for your and their own leisure time fun! Our only reward are your encouraging comments and your playing along and sharing steampunk fun and mixed media techniques. We appreciate every single entry and comment so much! Thank you for taking the time!

If you are new to this place, please, know that we are so glad that you stopped by our little steampunk corner!
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). You will find that we're mainly a mixed media challenge blog with a little twist towards steampunk, industrial and/or vintage. So why not give it a try?

We are looking forward to seeing your fab projects entered to one of our challenges soon!

SanDee& amelie's October 2019 Top 5 and Prize Winners!

Hi, servus and welcome to the announcement of the Top 5 and prize winners from our October challenge!

Once more you have all wowed us with the entered projects and picking our favourites was a difficult job (well, honestly it almost always is...). Thank you all so much for always sharing your amazing and imaginative makes with us! This really means a lot to the team and me!

Sadly this time we had to exclude several entries from our Top 5 picks and prize draws this time as there was no mention and back link to our challenge blog (independent of where you are entering our challenges from - facebook, Instagram, your blogs or other social media platforms). It always makes me sad when we have to exclude anyone as my main goal is to make you all happy and have you enjoy some creative quality time on here...so, please, make sure you read our few challenge rules before you play along!!! Linking to our challenge blog is almost all we ask for (besides a few other simple rules to go by) - it is what keeps this blog running and helps at making our challenges known to a growing public - which honestly is our sole reward the team and I get for doing this in our spare time.

But let's move on to what makes us all happy ;) ...

The two prize winners were - as always - randomly drawn among all proper entries and this time the fabulous DecoArt prize bundle

goes to

entry # 20 


and a cool surprise package of awesome steampunk chippies designed and sold by boozybear

goes to 

entry # 6


Yay! Congrats, ladies, on your prize wins! Please, contact me under my email given in the side bar so I can forward your shipping details to our generous sponsors. DecoArt winners, please, also give a phone number as DecoArt will only ship if they are provided with a number that can be called in case of any delivery issues at customs and such.

And quickly on to our

 Top 5 

from the October challenge!
(as always they're presented in no particular order)

Well done, ladies! Thanks so much for playing along!!! Huge congrats on making our Top5 this time! Please, feel free to grab the Top5 badge for display on your blogs!


Our actual Winter Special Challenge is live and open until the end of December this time - so there are two months time instead of the usual one to maybe do a little steampunk or industrial style make in between enjoying preparing for Christmas! The team and I hope to see you play along with us soon!

Thank you for another year of being with us on this creative mixed media journey "with the special twist"!!! Thank you to our generous sponsors DecoArt and boozybear for being with us on this journey and for staying with us for another year filled with loads of awesome mixed media inspiration!!!! 

Merry Christmas, happy holidays and as always

hugs and happy Christmas and steampunk crafting! 

Claudia & the SASPC Team!
