Crafts: Steampunk Shadow Box – Treasure You

I found this wooden box for sale in the craftstore and I thought I could make something cool with it. The tissuepaper was giving me some trouble but I managed to get it together after all. I love the little steampunk light bulbs from Prima Marketing, they look so awesome!

Check out the video, which products I used and some more pictures after the jump!

Crafts: Timekeeper Steampunk Mini Album

Those of you who know me, probably know already that I love steampunk. So when I found this workshop kit online, I just had to make it! It is a gorgeous little mini album with a binder and chipboard cover and features great Marion Smith Designs papers. I loved making this album and if you continue to read, you can also see a video and lots more pictures! A detailed description is on YouTube itself.

Finds: yay for Ikea!

Ikea; I never go there. Not because I don’t like it, but because it is so far away. I don’t have a car, so when I go I want to buy everything, but I have to rely on public transportation, so one can not take a whole bunch of stuff.

But, yesterday I went! And what a trip it was! They had a lot of cool things, but I had to control myself. Apparantly, Ikea also picked up on the revival of steampunk, because they currently sell a beautiful set of steampunk animal prints on heavy cardstock. They can be used as postcards, but also to be framed. Look at the cute steampunk kitty!

I couldn’t resist and why should I, they were only 2,50 euro (about $2) for a set of 5. I also picked up some other cards, botanical and art cards with birds. And a cool pillow with a map on it! And a clock. Wasn’t really sure about the clock, but it’s beginning to grow on me. Well, I also bought some more stuff (for organising and storage), but it’s not worth blogging about.
