Steampunk Spells Mini Album

Hello steampunk fans! It is Gloria with you today, and I have a remarkable mini album to share! 
This project is a joint project with Graphic 45 and GSLCuts. G45 is a sponsor here at GSLCuts and many of us on the GSLCuts team enjoy using their papers!

I have created a 6" x 6" x 2" mini containing 18 pages (36 sides). This little gem is chock full of pretty papers and awesome chipboard embellishments! This is the perfect project for photos and journaling. Display this beauty on a shelf or easel for maximum enjoyment!
 Each page contains pockets or tags or ephemera. It is a steampunk-ers dream.
The spine sports a metal door plate and knob, plus two wonderful metal keys.
You need the following Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts embellishments for this project:

Mini Bird Cages

For a full supply list, scroll down to the bottom of the post. 
The front of this album is packed with metal charms, grungy steampunk chipboard shapes, and flowers. To create the large, butterfly embellishment, ink one Butterfly of Gears with black pigment ink. Cover the shape with Black Soot Distress Embossing Powder and heat set. 

For all the other chipboard shapes in the album, either keep them "raw" or color them with a black marker or black ink. I sprayed a few shapes with black glimmer mist. See the printable tutorial for specific directions. (COMING SOON!)

The inside front cover contains an envelope for hidden journaling or photos. I have used two of the corners from the Wrought Iron Set to decorate the envelope.
The inside back cover also contains a pocket for a square tag. This pocket is decorated with a spectacular Steampunk Gentleman. I sprayed this shape with glimmer mist and weighted it down with some heavy books so that he could dry flat.
This is just a sneaky peaky of all the chipboard shapes contained in this book!
To see all the pages of this wonderful, little album, check out the video!
