MAS Swap - Coffee Sleeve and Coin Envelope Group with Steampunk Theme

Well here it is my version of a "Steampunk Mini" made from coin envelopes, which I made from a tutorial I found on Youtube. Mini Album Scraps (MAS) has really been good for me, moving me out of my scrapping comfort zone and bringing some great challenges for me to grow ~ I'm loving it!

I chose to use Prima Printery Collection along with Graphic 45 Debutante paper collections. I loved them both and couldn't decide which way to go - so I combined them. You will see a lot of Tim Holtz hardware throughout the album along with bits and baubs I picked up in around jewelry department at Michaels and at Hardware stores. I hope you enjoy the pictures and I sure hope my swap partner loves it. She asked me to gear the album toward "Friendship" and so that is what I did.

I am so fortunate, as this time around my swap partner is from Calgary, AB and because we live fairly close we have decided to meet for lunch and do a "One on One" Swap. . . I'm really super excited to meet her - it's really been fun getting to know her.


Well there you have it. . . my first "Steampunk Mini".

To follow. . . .
