 Hello Paper Artists

I have enjoyed playing with the new Sherlock is Puzzled Collection.

There are 2 Journals on youtube:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5vSpZ2OtspU&t=2s

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wI6pqDN4x58


There is always some left for a card:

Mocha cardstock 12"w x 6"hi with scares at 4.5" & 9"

Cream jute twine, black cardstock



The cover has a background from one of the journal papers; the cut & create is fussy cut, foam mounted & allowed to have a 3D effect. There is a strip of black cardstock on the edge. Jute twine is wrapped around the front & the first score.

The inside of the card. The 2 Sherlocks are framed in black & mounted flat. The background paper in the centre is from the same journal paper used  on the front



The 3rd panel is closed over to show that it also has a black strip on its edge; the magnifying glass is framed in black, foam mounted, has a piece of jute twine tied around it & acts as a tuck spot for the 2 tags tucked in it.


The back is simple with a Sherlock quote framed in black & flat-mounted


Hope you get some ideas from this trifold card - the style can be adapted to any kind of theme.

Have a lock at the videos for more ideas using this Collection

Hello Paper Artists

 

The new Collections for end of July (only just made it):

Sherlock is Puzzled.

 The Cut & Creates are for the lovers of Sherlock BUT also for the lovers of Vintage Cut & Creates - add to a Vintage Junk Journal; use on cards, projects for men - anywhere your creativity needs them.

 Video of both sets of papers: 





 Cut & Creates - 8 papers 8.3x11" high quality 300 dpi, jpg format. Of the 8 papers, there are 2 devoted to Sherlock Holmes images & words while the other 6 contain vintage ephemera.

 To Purchase: https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/1042917456/sherlock-is-puzzled-cut-creates-sherlock

 Background Papers - 10 papers high quality 300 dpi, jpg format. Of the 10 papers, there are 8 that are 8.3x11" to be used in that size or cut for cards or journal pages while the other 2 are 10"x7".

 A journal 10"wide x 7" high can be made by using the 2 papers as backgrounds & cut the others to fit for pages. Any of the papers can be printed several times to perfectly suit your art project.

 To Purchase: https://www.etsy.com/MegsGardenPapercraft/1042910932

If you are not into Sherlock, then just toss the 2 Sherlock Cut & Create papers & call the collection ‘Vintage Journal’.  I plan on doing a fun mystery journal or card - just make up your own mystery so that the recipient has to solve the puzzle.

  Hello Paper Artists

  Nature's Garden Butterflies:

 I have called this a Mini Journal since it contains a signature but it could also be called a Maxi Card. Whatever it is called I think it is cute & could be used with any theme of Cut & Creates.
