June Giveaway

Master Detective Mini Album and Case 1 Clare Charvill Graphic 45

Hellllooooooo my lovely crafty friends.  I'm back from a longer than planned, really enjoyable break from crafting. It's all change here, Sophie (Oli's girlfriend) has moved in ahead of their move to their new house together, Oli's started a new job yesterday and Harry is about to come home for the summer having finished his first year at Uni.  I thought it would be a good time to de-clutter the house and seem to have spent the best part of three weeks making trips to charity shops and the tip around some long overdue gardening and all the other jobs that needed doing around the house too.
Now the new paper collections from G45 are here in the UK whop whop, I thought I'd challenge myself to make a project using one 8 x 8 Master Detective Pad just to get a feel for the papers and how to work the designs together, and here it is.  
In true G45 style there's a hint of Halloween threaded through this Sherlock Holmes themed collection, along with fabulous prints and colours, which are perfect for projects for those guys in our life as well as the girlies.   
Master Detective Mini Album and Case 2 Clare Charvill Graphic 45Master Detective Mini Album and Case 3 Clare Charvill Graphic 45
I've created the case from our 8x 8 Shadow Box kit, added a recessed front and then used chipboard sheets to cut the album covers and spine for the book inside. Both are assembled using my black construction tape - which makes it quick to get to the exciting bit - cutting up those papers and decorating lol!!! 
The mini album is a smaller version of the larger 11" album I designed back in April with a couple of changes and additions :-).  At the end of the project there was a full sheet and a half left over, along with a few random strips.  The cover is take 2, I didn't like the first one I put together - it's funny how you know something is wrong!!! 
Here's a few more pictures, the supply list and product links.
