Steampunk Mini ala Jodi and Marie, plus the WINNERS ARE

We watched Laura at the Paper Trail"s Ustream video's for the instructions on this mini. It is a #10 envelope Mini album. I had also watched several of the older http://www.youtube.com/user/FollowThePaperTrail.
We used 6 black envelopes each.

We sealed them, cut them and scored them and then folded them.
We added some papers, a lot of the paper is Graphic 45 paper.

Mine is the top one and Jodi's the bottom one.

We made some die cuts and punched some punches.

This is one of my favorite pages. I love clock faces and writing. Oh, and then there  is the black and white thing. I used a lot of decorative metal that my husband carries in his online store. You can see some of the stuff on my site. I used all three findings on the bottom on the right. I also have the flourish in gold and silver that is around the clock face in the picture above on the left of the mini. I have the old fashioned cars that are on the bottom right in the picture above. These findings turned out to be a huge asset, you will see more of them in future pictures.

Oh and this page is another favorite. More happens to it later, the gear card in the pocket moves to a different place too.
Well, I shall show you more later.
