First, Alexandra creates a perfect Steampunk notebook! Check out her video tutorials below!

"I have recently created several notebooks and found it very interesting and refreshing, after making mini albums. Today I want to share another notebook, featuring the Deluxe Steampunk Debutante collection.

The signatures inside the notebook were made using plain printing paper, and they are connected to the spine without any glue, using the book binding method which is called “Button Hole Stitch”. I’ve added the beads to the threads in several places and I really like how everything turned out, the colors and the designs of the paper, of course, played here an important role too.


I am sharing a video tutorial for creating the notebook, including the process of embellishing the cover. If you want to have a look at my way of doing it, you are welcome to watch the 2 parts of the video tutorial." ~Alexandra

Halloween in Wonderland Album, by Elena Olinevich, product by Graphic45, Photo6

Now, Elena shares a perfect Hallowe'en in Wonderland album! She has so many great techniques in her process video tutorial below. Love!

"I am a big fan of Alice in Wonderland  book. I collect them and have a variety of them . There are many illustration artists and piblicators who make my collection so big.

So that is why it was a fun chance for me to create an album - as if I am the editor in chief and I can determine what to include into my book , what pictures to use and so on.

 The result of it  you can check in my video tour - I made an album with many details and extra secret pages and envelopes. I used different Policy envelopes - they are so great for such kind of Albums.

 I also tried to make something mysterious, so for one of my spread I took the black cardstock, some die cuts and start using paste, paints, glitter, beads. If you are interested what has happened you can check my video tutorial for this spread. I also share some tips how to use Policy envelopes in a different way. So please, enjoy." ~Elena
