Rustbucket is a mega STEAMPUNK experience available on January 12th. If you have never tried steampunk, I suggest you do. It is pure FUN!!! I am not by nature a quirky person, but with the influence of Hayley with her creative ideas and suggestions, I managed to create something I think is quirky and broadly usable. I hope this becomes a staple in your digi cabinet. Over 100 elements, 27 blendable scenes, 15 characters and 21 papers. All you need to create a fantasy of your own.

So here are a few pages to help you see what you can do with this kit, no matter what style you have.
Cheryl starts us off with this amazing fantasy. I love how she placed the boy firmly on the watch. So cool.

Hayley used so much imagination with this page, I love the whole fish theme...brilliant! She added her own artistic trout to the sea of metal fish!

Ina used some of the blendable scenes for this page, creating an old style garage station, futuristic style. Love the story it tells!

Jeannette also used some of the scenes, creating a totally different type of garage, filling it with the old truck, garbage cans and metal elements to give this a wonderfully, grungy look.

This lady is one of my favorite characters, and Pat gave her a fun role in her page. She created a steampunk world, colorful with grunge and blends. Fabulous!

Anne (Figberrie) used one of my favorite papers, giving this page a totally different look. 
I love the balance of elements, using the torn paper as the perfect divide between the two worlds. Beautifully done!

Jana used the same background paper and look how different it looks! Equally beautiful, I love the depth Jana creates with her shadows!

I love this western theme Gina created with the cactus and old truck. Can you just FEEL that heat??

And could it be steampunk without a little fantasy? Hayley weaves this fabulous story of adventure, I want to travel in that world to see what is beyond!! Amazing page!

This motorcycle took ages to create, so thrilled to see Cheryl used it in this outstanding page

I love simplicity and love this page by has balance and interest, great colors and a fun page!

I love how  Jeannette used the metal flower in the kit as the foreground to the elephant in the fun and beautiful!

And Natasha created two amazing pages of travel...great pages to show such fabulous images, the first was a trip to San Francisco!

and then an impressive trip to India!

I have many more to show you, so wander over to the shop and see more pages that will surely inspire you!! Thank you for looking!

Botanical Garden

Botanical Garden is a simple garden kit, filled with flowers, blendable rock and brick walls, birds, branches, dragonflies, butterflies ...things you find in the garden. It is a peaceful kit, lots of blending options and a spill over frame to help you clip your photo to.  And of course, here are some pages to give you a little inspiration.

A soft and gentle page by Ange, she blends the flowers in to soften them so they do not overpower the childs face.

Cheryl gives us a little magic, using the overflow frame to clip her image to, and then a gorgeous blend of the same photo into the background.

Figberrie (Anne) continues the magical theme with this stunning castle page. She also uses the overflow frame with high impact!

Gina created a portrait style page,gorgeous blending giving this page a sort of ethereal feel.

I love this cracked earth blend with these elements that Hayley constructed. A beautiful balance of nature!

Jana is amazing at clustering! I love that she used a photo of a bird with a clear sky in the bacground, as this emphasized the bird was high up in the tree.  The flowers ground lovely!

I adore this page where Jeannette uses a photo of her son in the grass, again utilizing the overflow frame, to show him as an explorer of nature.  Beautifully done, a fabulous blend, it tells such a great story!

Natasha is into nature, and took the theme of a Botanical Garden to show these stunning photos of their local Botanical Garden..simply gorgeous! Beautiful framing!

Pat loves simple elegance, her pages are pure and to the point as shown in this gorgeous page of a flower, a dragonfly and some this gorgeous in it's simplicity?

Trish did a two page spread, and I love how she used the overflow frame, such an artistic feel to this page!

...and I love books and papers, so had to add it to the kit, and to my own page. LOL.

Please check out more of the inspirational pages in my shop...these girls truly love art, and love showing you what YOU can do with this kit! Thank you.
