GUEST DESIGNERS
We are so honored to have the 2Crafty design team serving as Guest Detectives this month! You are sure to be inspired by their work!

We are also thrilled to announce the return of Special Investigators! This month, Giorgia Rossini was chosen to guest design.


My name is Giorgia Rossini, I am 36 and I am Italian. I've been married for 4 years, and I am a new mom of a sweet baby girl, Isabella.

I started scrapbooking about 9 years ago to preserve my memories, and since then I couldn't stop! 
I love the preserving memories part of it but also the creative part of it: playing with papers and all the cute embellishments makes me happy! I especially love making layouts but I also enjoy making mini album, cards and home decor.

My style is certainly colorful: I love to mix patterned papers! I love playing with patterned papers and embellishments. 

Social media
I have also a fanpage on FB: www.facebook.com/jo.in.wonderland.creations

And now, are you ready for some serious inspiration? Here's what our design team and guest designers created with Case File No. 273.

How Hina solved the Case: The beautiful image inspired me a lot with it’s soft and delicate theme.
I went with the colour scheme, playing basically with pink, green and white on my LO.
Evidence: I chose to design a valentine theme and picked a woodgrain paper. For my design I used an ornate Frame combined with a flourish, and I distressed all the chipboard elements.
With flowers and foliage, I also added some round wooden disks.

I used the following chipboard elements from 2Crafty:

Round Ornate Frame
Formal Flourish 1
Foliage set 5
A moment with you

Marie's blog
How Marie solved the Case:
I used the chipboards:
- Loveheart word

To answer the riddle I used all the colors of the moodboard.
I used flowers, wooden chipboards, ribbons, elements on the theme of Valentine's Day.
Distress and frame

For the presentation behind the little envelope I inserted a little word
My inspiration of the title "Valentine's days" and the choice of my photo my son and his lover

Sabrina's blog
How Sabrina solved the Case: Testimony: "Crazy about you" is how I feel for my husband even after 19 years together. I selected the following evidence: flowers, hearts, frame, metal and woodgrain elements.
