Steampunked Scrapbook Pages

My first projects as a new member of the design team for Anything But A Card !

I admit that when I found out it was a Steampunk challenge, I was a bit worried, wondering what I had gotten myself into,  as I have nothing in my crafty stash that would work for that style. Then it came to me: look for digital scrapbooking components, surely there are some out there on the internet !

After a little bit of searching, I found an awesome kit that was perfect.
It is called Steampunk and is designed by Karry Dempsey at

I used My Memories Suite 5 digital design software to make my two projects.

I find it is easiest to use "outside" components, that means general digital kits by designers other than those at (or Stampin' Up! if you are using My Digital Studio software) , by keeping them in a separate folder on my computer desktop. I only keep the folder/kit I am working with on the desktop at the time, making less items to search through.  It can be tricky at times doing it this way, such as if you want to use a paper as a background layer it will need to be inserted into a photo box or shape that covers the entire background since components that are not installed directly into the software won't pop up on the search in the software.

Take a moment to check out the other fantastic creations, not only by design team members, but fans that have submitted links to their creations at
