A hearty welcome to SanDee&amelie's challenge blog!

We are so glad that you stopped by our little steampunk corner!
Whether you are a dedicated tag or card maker, art journaler or mixed media lover - this might be the right place for you!
For more information about the rules and the little "steampunk/industrial twist" we ask of you, please check the "about" stuff and then simply jump in and create!

If you are new to steampunk and not sure if this is "your thing", maybe take a look at our winners gallery on pinterest (use the linking button on our side bar). You will find that we're mainly a mixed media challenge blog with a little twist towards steampunk, industrial and/or vintage. So why not give it a try?

We are looking forward to seeing your fab projects entered to one of our challenges soon!

Hugs,
SanDee&amelie&the SASPC team

MMI - the July Challenge Mid Month Inspiration

...and of course the announcement of this month's prize sponsor as well ;)

Servus and welcome back to our tiny steampunk spot! We are so glad that you stop by to find out what Team B have in store for you!

As you may already know - this month's challenge theme is

Inventions&Inventors

and it is totally up to you how you interpret it - as long as your entry is obviously steampunk-ish (you know - we ask no more of you than to add at least a little steampunk twist to make your entry count) and follows our (few) general challenge rules (which can be found at the top of this page). To get to the main challenge post with the inlinkz collection click HERE. Or simply use the button on top of our side bar.

This month's prize (that will as always go to one randomly drawn player of this month's challenge) is sponsored by our new sponsor

http://www.inspirationemporium.com/


whom we are so happy and proud to have with us this year! Thank you so much, Joy and IE team!

The lucky winner gets a voucher for their store - so don't hesitate: create! (and enter of course ;).

Aaaaand  we have some exciting news too: if you come back in two days on July 17th you will find an awesome Summer Special we have prepared for you! Make sure you don't miss this one as there will be an extra prize to win too!

But now it's time to share the new bundle of inspiration - created by Team B - with you. We hope you like what you see and leave our place full of ideas and the urgent need to get to your crafting desks immediately (erm...of course only after reading to the end of this post)! And hopefully you will also take the time to visit the teamies' blogs for more images and information and maybe even leave a comment with their blogs - this will be highly appreciated! It is your comments that keep us going, you know?! :)





I decided for no particular inventor, but for a little boy, who dreams of  becoming a great inventor one day. Which young boy does NOT dream of changing the world by inventing something brand new?
My little boy has thousand crazy ideas in his head, just waiting for the day he will let them become reality.








Usually the first thought that comes to mind with the word 'Invention' is something mechanical or industrial. I took a slightly different view of this challenge and thought of my daughter, who loves to write - poems being a favourite.....and thinking that they are her 'inventions'. I am currently trying to learn coptic stitch so I can make books....the result was a notebook in which my daughter can write down some ideas.












I altered the top of a shoe box to create a steampunk "stand alone tray canvas" (which sounds like some invention too, right? * ;).I had a joyful time at my crafting desk - playing with fleamarket finds, lovely papers from my stash and a lot of lovely steampunk embellishments!

So you see - there's a billion and one possibilities for how to approach this challenge theme! What's most important to us is that you enjoy the creative process, have fun designing your very own takes on our challenge and that we (hopefully) could manage to spark your imagination! 

If you haven't already checked out the fab makes of Team A - HERE's the place to go to! You will also find the inlinkz collection for entering our July challenge over there.

We look forward to seeing your wonderful entries soon! Hugs and happy crafting,

your SASPC - Team!
