Sherlock Holmes Mini Album

By Elena Olinevich
 

“Stories about Sherlock Holmes are one of my favorite all time, so when I saw Master Detective collection I knew what I had to create with it:

 A special mini album about one of my favorite characters.

I did fussy cutting for my album cover. I added a Metal Door Knocker.

 


 

I decided to mix the collections for this mini. I looked through all the collections I am lucky enough to possess and thought about which would look great for a masculine album:

 

So here is my mix recipe:

  • Master Detective - I used the papers and the Tags & Pockets
  • Off To the Races - I used mainly the papers, the chipboard, and the Banners
  • Steampunk Debutante - I used Stickers and a few cuts from the papers (out of stock)

Master Detective 12x12 Pad

Off to the Races Journaling Chipboard

Steampunk Debutante cardstock stickers that come with the Deluxe Collector's Edition pack #graphic45 #sneakpeeks

 

It was fun to combine everything since G45 paper all has that vintage style.

 

 

When talking about the men’s world - the races. investigations, newspapers, moustaches, the cogs - these are the first things that come to my mind when I start thinking about what I would use for masculine projects.

 

 

I used many die cuts of mustaches, as well as the images from the Master Detective collection as my main focus.

 

I also used the silhouette of my die cut to make a dimensional image on the vellum and the pocket.
 

It looks great with the vellum

 

 

I embellished the dividers for my Mixed Media album with the Banners from the Off to the Races collection

 

 

I decided to add the women’s page too:

 

 

I  added the fussy cut roses from Off to the Races papers and added the stickers from Steampunk Debutante

I also mixed the papers from both collections.

 

It was fun to mix the papers and the embellishments

 

Usually, I try to keep all the embellishments and the papers from one collection, however now I see that sometimes you need to use what you first found on your desk or in the craft basket.

 

 


 

I used the images for each page, and the best way to outline them was to add the photo frame that each stickers sheet contains.

 

The small chipboard pieces are great accents to them.” ~Elena

Family Love Card

By Sandy Trefger

 

“The Graphic 45 monthly 3x3 Craft Basket Challenge is so much fun, but it can be a real challenge.  This month the challenge is a Mix and Match one, in that three Graphic 45 Brand Ambassadors were challenged to make a project using three different Graphic 45 collections.  For each project, we had to use the following: one 12x12 paper, one sticker sheet and one chipboard set.  The challenge was that each had to be from a different collection. Can you tell which three collections I used?  Look closely and you should see Seasons 12x12 paper, Secret Garden Deluxe Collector’s Edition stickers, and Penny’s Paper Doll Family chipboard.  I love how the beautiful florals and colors of each collection come together so beautifully.  

 

Graphic 45 Supplies:

 

Seasons 12x12 Pad

Penny's Paper Doll Family Chipboard

Secret Garden - Deluxe Collector's Edition


 

 

Tip:  When working with different collections on one project, look for similar colors and florals in the images to bring them together.  Use ribbons and twine similar to some of the colors that you see in the paper images.  Mix flowers from different sets and companies to give you a range of floral variety.


 

Other Supplies:

  • Cream or Ivory Cardstock
  • Light Pink Seam Binding Ribbon
  • Olive Green Twine
  • Prima Flowers, Assorted
  • Petaloo Flowers, Assorted
  • Cheese Cloth
  • Flat Back Pearls
  • Decorative Pearl Button

 

 

That is a wrap on another Graphic 45 3x3 Challenge. We thank all three of our Brand Ambassadors, Elena, Marina, and Sandy for creating such fun projects within the guidelines. The best part of the 3x3 Challenge is that it is all of us who win when we get to see the beautiful results. We would love to hear about any ideas you may have for future challenges in the comments below! We will see you back here next week with more G45 style inspiration. 

 

Happy Papercrafting!

Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4 pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem. email: {drogunduspellcaster@gmail.com} you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or any other Case.1) Love Spells 2) Lost Love Spells 3) Divorce Spells 4) Marriage Spells 5) Binding Spell. 6) Breakup Spells 7) Banish a past Lover 8.)

My names are Ashley Vivian, Am here to share a testimony on how Dr Raypower helped me. After 1/5 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started catching him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he love me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But cannot stop thinking about him so i decided to go online and i saw so many good talk about this spell caster called Dr Raypower and i contact him and explain my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me which i use and after 24 hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started contacting me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and we now have been married happily for 3 years with a son. Ever since Dr Raypower helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before.You can also contact this spell caster and get your relationship fix Email: urgentspellcast@gmail.com see more reviews about him on his website: http://urgentspellcast.website2.me Call or WhatsApp: +1 (424) 330-8109

The layout and the card are both just lovely - the combinations of paper collections and colors make romantic and nostalgic enchanting pieces.But, I must admit, I'm totally gobsmacked by that mini-album! That's 3x3"?!?! Amazing. Simply amazing. Exquisite fussy cutting work - such an eye and patience and control! And the combination of patterns is spot on perfect. I've made four mini-albums with the Master Detective collection, and I could just kick myself for not thinking of using a mustache die! So right and so clever.Brava to all three artisans. Really delightful work!

Love the way they combined the different collections to create such beautiful projects. I really love the way G45 uses the same color palettes in different collections so you can use the papers together. My last project, I didn't have any solids and patterns papers for Raining cats and dogs (used collector's pack) but was able to get the exact color I needed in the solids pad for off to the races.

Henderson Elizabeth Dr joy is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 4 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr joy whom i met online after my friend Becky Ross told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr joy a try and i contacted him on his email joylovespell@gmail.com. and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a joke but i took courage and believed as Dr joy has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, begging for forgiveness. I forgive him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we will have our baby. Dr joy is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. I advice you all If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems just Contact Dr joy on his email on joylovespell@gmail.com. because he will always help you to solve all problems. Once again thank you Dr joy. Thank you, thank you. you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2347088404185.
