Happy Thursday! I've been super-busy getting all the Basic Grey ready to ship! The good news is that it's ready! Hurry, though! These collections are amazing and will sell out fast! Quantities are limited so get your hands on some before they're gone!!!

Maybe I didn't pay much attention in American History in High School, but I had no idea what Steampunk meant. Designer Sandi Clarkson has not only created a beautiful layout using the Graphic 45 Steampunk collection, but she has given me a history lesson as well! Take a look at her gorgeous work:

'Engine 638' by Sandi Clarkson

Sandi wanted to "embody the concept of Steampunk, which is to glorify the mechanisms of machinery prior to the electrical age. Not the finished product or what they can accomplish but the beauty of their working parts" (there's my history lesson!) What a fantastic job she did in not only putting together a gorgeous layout, but also giving meaning to such fantastic photos of that steam engine!

I love all the detail Sandi added to this layout! The gears and the diamond dust on the tags are a nice touch! And... I'm in love with that Attic Lamp Post!

Stay-tuned tomorrow for more of Sandi's work using the Steampunk collection!

Happy Crafting!
