Hi There! It’s Lynda from Scrapbook with Lynda. I’m back this month with a steampunk inspired scrapbook layout using the Sir Vagabond collection.
Those of you that follow me on instagram know that steampunk isn’t exactly my style, but that’s the fun of belonging to a design team. I never know what will be sent, so I need to spread my wings and try new things.
Back to the Future with a Steampunk Sir Vagabond Scrapbook Layout
Looking through my photos I found a few Back to the Future themed photos from Universal Studios, which are perfect for this collection.
The Sir Vagabond paper is so decorative, that this layout came together really quickly! It’s like Stamperia did all the work for me.
Clear Die Cuts
One of my favorite products in the collection is the clear die cut pack.
They are made of a sturdy acrylic, so they are easy to work with. And the black print stands out on the paper.
Love this clear die cut of Sir Vagabond, because the detail is so amazing. It was the first thing I positioned on the layout, then built the rest of the layout around.
Steampunk Scrapbook Layout Title Cluster
Love it when supplies from the collection can be used to create a page title. Back to the Future is all about time travel, so time travel journal is the perfect title.
Added a couple of foam squares behind the die cut to pop it up on the page.
The title embellishment is part of the die cut pack. Usually die cut packs are full of cardstock weight paper, but that’s not the case here. These die cuts are chipboard, so they add lots of dimension.
Compass and Ticket Cluster
There are several compass images in this steampunk collection, so I decided to use them on this scrapbook layout.
Repeating the same imagery in each cluster adds unity, so a compass appears in each of the three clusters.
I placed a foam square under the right side of the ticket, so it would layer nicely over the die cut compass.
Sir Vagabond Steampunk Cluster
The detail on Sir Vagabond is amazing, so he is predominant on this steampunk scrapbook layout.
To keep Sir Vagabond from floating on the page I added a die cut phrase for him to stand on. Next, I added a couple compasses, so they would be appear in this cluster too.
Placed foam squares behind the Sir Vagabond die cut, then added him to the cluster.
Working with steampunk wasn’t my thing, but I need to rethink that after working with the Sir Vagabond collection on this scrapbook layout. It was totally fun and easy. Plus I love the way the paper and embellishments highlight my photos. Maybe steampunk is my thing after all! I encourage you to give it a try, as the Sir Vagabond collection is so easy to work with.
Please stop back later this month to see another steampunk inspired scrapbook layout made with the Sir Vagabond collection from Fotobella.com. And please stop by my facebook page to see more of my creations.
