Steampunk Layout

Hey there! 
Today I'm sharing a scrapbook layout project for CutCardstock

I had a photo my daughter and her husband had professionally taken when they were engaged. This is another one of those photos I’ve been meaning to scrapbook for quite a while. And since they were dressed in “steampunk” attire, I had to go with steampunk elements.

Base Materials 

DCS Discount 12 x 12 Card Stock:Black

DCS Discount 12 x 12 Card Stock: Aqua

Basis 12 x 12 Card Stock: White

Cougar Smooth Card Stock: White – three coordinating 6 x 6 digital papers from Imagine That were printed on this card stock

Royal Sundance Felt Card Stock: Brilliant White – photo printed on this card stock. I like that it gives the phot a “canvas” feel.

Base Construction

Three layers were matted for the layout base. The black cardstock was left 12 x 12 inches. A 12 x 12 piece of Aqua card stock was cut to 11 3/4 x 11 3/4 inches. Basis White was cut to approximately 11 5/8 x 11 5/8 inches. I edged the white with gilding wax.

Die Cuts

Next I die cut some steampunk elements to embellish sing dies from Crafter’s Companion. Two card stocks were used: Stardream Metallic Saturn & Classic Linen Gold Pearl.

I also cut a title using a Silhouette cut file out of the Linen Gold Pearl card stock.


The photo is matted with Gold Pearl and Saturn card stocks and one of the 6 x 6 digital papers which i cut in half and offset.

Two 6 x 6 digital papers were added to the base.

Our photo is centered onto the base.

Completed Project

The die cuts and title are added to the layout to complete.

I hope you like my Steampunk Layout.
