Posted by Graphic 45 09/29/2017 12 Comment(s) Mini Albums,Tutorials,Videos,Tags,

Hello, G45ers!

 We are wrapping this week up with a fantastic Master Detective Album of Curiosities by Brand Ambassador Nico Scrap. Nico's album tags are well designed and feature great images from this collection as well as fun embellishments. Check out those vials on the front tag-perfect! He has included a video tutorial as well so you can make this project for yourself. Before we move on, it is time to announce this week's blog prize winner.

The winner is Deborah Cox, who commented on Monday's blog featuring Decades Inks to say, "These inks can be so hard to find, but I had persevered and have what I thought, was all the colors. Time to go shopping! Thanks for the ideas!" Congratulations Deborah. Please contact to claim your prize. 



This week’s prize package included four 8”x8” paper pads Artisan Style, Precious Memories, Café Parisian, and Voyage Beneath the Sea, and three Shabby Chic Staples, Brads, Clock Keys, and Door Plates & Knobs, a $65 value.

Album of Curiosities

By Nico Scrap


“Okay, I have a new favourite collection ever. I love skulls, I love spider webs, and I do love Sherlock Holmes. When I was a little boy I had to read one book for school during Summer holidays, and I chose one of the Sherlock Holmes books. My Grandma and I spent that Summer together and we read 6 books! I dressed up like Sherlock Holmes for the whole Summer and was always saying, "Elementary, my dear Watson" for no reason...LOL

When I saw this collection I thought I should make something for my grandma in memory of that amazing Summer!” ~Nico
