Hello, G45ers!

We have a magnificent assortment of Master Detective projects to share with you, dear G45ers. Magda Cortez is here sharing three beautiful and mysterious creations. She has created a box, an album, and a card all featuring sinister secrets and dastardly deeds from this Sherlock Holmes inspired collection. Her pieces are full of fun and thematic upcycled items like a pipe and exciting fussy cut scenes. Be sure to check out her videos for a full tutorial and a more up close look at all the details. 



Master Detective Memory Album,
Box & Card

By Magda Cortez


“Hi… Today I’m going to share these beauties I did with Master Detective Collection… When I go on vacation or travel for a Class in another city or country, I’m always looking for things that I can use in my future projects. Last year I went to Bogota, Colombia, and I found those beautiful smoking pipes. They have a few different sizes and ,of course, one of them matches perfectly for the handle of the box. Did you like the idea??

I did the interactive card and you can see more in my video! It was so much fun to do it!







The Ivory Book Box is a perfect masculine gift.  The smoking pipe as a handle gives a personality to the box!!




Now to finish the collection, the mini album!!


Staples - Square Tag & Pocket Album-Kraft

This book comes with 6 signatures and each signature has 3 pages. So much room for our pictures and journaling!!




I’m just going to show you a few pictures. This is a big album with a lot of pages, tags, and pockets to fill with beautiful pictures!




Tip: Use the chipboard to make decorative clips!

Tip: We can always add those ATC Policy envelopes to keep memorabilia or a secret journal.








Don’t forget to watch the videos with all the pictures of the mini album and the tutorial also! Thanks to all for your sweet comments.. See you next time!
