Steampunk Instant Scrapbook Pages

These are my latest creations. I combined all of my areas of interest and created a downloadable instant scrapbook album. I printed them on my Epson R1800 wide format printer and was so thrilled how easy it was to just adhere the pictures. I just happened to have a few 1970's reprints that were developed square back in the day, and then I cropped them down to size and just glued them on. So easy. I also have a version for those who prefer to hand journal. I plan to print them professionally and sell the physical product with hand painted scrapbook albums. But I am only one person and these things will take time.

Etsy only allows for 5 files at 19.9 mb per file, so I will have to list the pages separately. I am very distressed by this revelation because if it were me as a customer, I would want the whole shebang! Let me have it all!

This is how it looks printed from my home inkjet printer. Everyone who has looked at it has rubbed it with their fingers to experience the depth of layers. I take that as a the ultimate compliment!

Basic supplies: Glue stick, pictures, and a pen.

This is my mom and me, I think about 4 years old.

There are several options for working with these files. You can print them on any printer and just fit them to size at 8 inches and recalculate the size of photos, or send them to a photo printer for roughly $3 per page and either glue on your matching luster or gloss print, or use the optional PNG file format included and drop your photo behind the open squares, then save and print the 12x12 photo. My preferred method is to send them to my local copy shop, and ask for 13x19 inch paper. Yes, it can be done, then you just trim off the excess. I use the extra space to drop the double layout, and shrink it by 50% for a mini album.
