Mini Album with Gold Wing Tutorial

By Gitta Roolf


“Hello crafters!

I am very excited to share the steampunk project with you. I absolutely fell in love with this paper collection. The steampunk lady was in dire need of real gold wings and that’s how things went: A golden clock, golden paper and golden wings.

Steampunk Mini Album Walk Through




A page with a slider would be nice and the clock would look great there. After a few days of tinkering and back and forth deciding whether this might work, the site was ready. And the slider also works great with the filigree clock and I had a lot of fun.



In addition, steampunk paper fits metal parts particularly well and that was my opportunity to bring a lot of metal into the book.


Somehow the album took on a life of its own and there were quite a few videos. German, English, English subtitles – sometimes so, sometimes so. Anyway, I’m always happy about a comment under my video – I read them all. It’s so nice to exchange ideas with people from all over the world who love the same hobby. With this in mind, I wish you happy scrapbooking.
