The Master Detective collection from Graphic 45 was the perfect collection to create an album for the photos from the Mystery murder party that I hosted last month to celebrate for both my daughter and son in law’s birthday. After using some of the papers to create the invitations, decorations, and a live mystery game inspired by the Clue board game, I needed to create a big album that could hold all the pictures from the party.
The graphics from this collection are amazing, they got me so inspired to create one of my favorite albums I have made so far.
The album consists of two pieces: a box that I decorated with different fuzzy cut layers of the images from the paper collection, and the second piece, the actual album that will hold all the photos.
For this project I used the 8×8 paper pad and the ephemera pack. This gave me plenty of material to work with.
I loved creating all the different pages that became full of pockets and interactive pieces.
I used tiny magnets to securely close the interactive pages.
For some pages I created 3D scenes using images from the collection.
The Master Detective collection is a fuzzy cutter’s dream come true!
I wanted to have lots of hidden spaces to put photos. I wanted whoever was looking at the album to have fun finding them.
I also wanted plenty of pockets to hold the printables and memorabilia from the party.
I wanted every page of the album to be fun. On this page, I backed the smaller pictures of the characters in the collection with chipboard, then used red thread and to create the illusion of a police board.
In this page I used an old map paper to mark the location 221B Baker Street, Sherlock Holmes Address.
Some pages have cut outs that I made using my silhouette machine for more fun pieces.
This was definitely an amazing collection to work with.
Hoping this post will give you inspiration to create your own album.
Thank you so much for reading.
