Steampunk has become a new fascination for me. It is a sub-genre of sci-fi (which I am a huge fan) and has recently made its way into the scrapping world. It frequently has lots of Victorian and old futuristic elements. It is very visually gritty at times and I tend to find it fairly appealing. Recently I got the new Graphic 45 line Steampunk Debutante. I have been having a lot of fun with this line and wanted to share a card I made for friend's 30th birthday. I will more than likely be sharing a few more Steampunk inspired projects in the future.

OK so maybe don't cut a rug, but this week at Frosted Designs we are cutting up photos and pictures. I love the look of creating mosaics and blocks with photos but it often a technique I forget to use. I was excited to create a layout for this week's challenge and really had fun with this. Head on over to Frosted Designs to see the other projects created by the design team this week. Seriously the ladies outdid themselves this week and there is some great inspiration over there.

This week at Frosted Designs we have another great challenge going on and another chance to win some Robyn's Fetishes digital stamps. These stamps are seriously so cute you just have to head over and check them out! On to the challenge though....This week we challenge you to use a quote on your project. I couldn't decide which quote to use so I made two projects. The first I made a card with the digital stamp "Book Worm" from Robyn's Fetishes. As a librarian I just couldn't Pass up the uber cute book worm stamp. The quote says "A library is not a luxury, but one of the necessities of life" -Henry Ward Beecher.
