Victorian Dreams: Gorgeous Steampunk Debutant Layouts

Hello Crafters! 

It's a great day for creating! Thanks for joining us on this lovely Wednesday. We've got gorgeous craft creations from our amazing Design Team to share with you. Today it's all about Steampunk Debutant. This phenomenal collection is like a symphony of color, with gorgeous victorian-inspired imagery. It's like a beautiful dream! Nicole Eccles and Gloria Stengel have prepared some jaw-dropping craft creations that are sure to astonish you. So lets get to it! Our first craft comes from the brilliant Nicole Eccles. She has created this amazing layout called "Let Your Spirit Soar." That is the perfect name for such an uplifting and vibrant LO! It's so adorable and cheerful!

"This layout makes me think Indie Art, with a twinge of Steampunk.  Not only do I love all of Graphic 45's papers for cutting out images, but I love all the borders that are on the papers too!  They are great alone, but even to doodle or color in just a few elements can really give a dramatic effect.  Also love the versatility of the letter stickers, so easy to change them up by just sticking them to another piece of paper and fussy cutting!" Nicole Eccles

This next layout was created by the amazing Gloria Stengel. This LO is elegant, fascinating, and heart warming. It's central image is a photo of London, which goes perfectly with the victorian theme of Steampunk Debutant. Plus, this LO has all the class and refinement of a Gloria Stengel craft creation. So lovely!

"My husband and I took a "trip of a lifetime" in 2007 to celebrate our 20th anniversary. We spent two weeks visiting Paris and London. One evening, my husband took this amazing photograph of the London Eye. He captured all of the lights and colors! I knew that I wanted to scrap the photo with the Graphic45 Steampunk Debutant papers. The Imaginarium Designs chipboard gears were perfect for my layout." -Gloria Stengel

Nicole and Gloria, you gals did it again! Fabulous work!

Fantastic!!! Love the papers!!

Nicole's layout used Steampunk in a non-steampunk sort of way and turned out to perfectly fit the theme. Gloria's was similar in that it didn't seem too Steampunky but still really nice LO. Thanks for the great inspiration!

I gotta know how to get those wonderful diecuts used in the Steampunk layout. They're the icing on the cake!
