"I am a contributor to the Dutch magazine “Cards & Scrap” and was really excited to get to work on an article with the gorgeous “Steampunk Spells” collection for the September/October issue of this magazine. Since the November/December issue has been released, I can now show you a project that I made for my article in the previous issue."
