November Case Files | First Reveal

November is here. This year sure is flying by quickly! No worries! A new month brings all kinds of excitement here at CSI! Besides our three new Case Files, we've got new sponsors and new guest designers.

For this first reveal, we'll be sharing inspiration from the design team and guest designers for our first Case File. On the 15th, we'll be sharing inspiration from the design team and guest designers for our second Case File. Somewhere in between, we'll be posting our Cold Case File, our special stash-busting challenge.


This month, we have six generous sponsors donating prizes. Click here to read more about our sponsors and the prizes they are donating. Winners will be selected randomly from all of our players, with a few exceptions where sponsors have asked us to choose from certain geographic regions.


Did you know November is National Memoir Writing Month? With this in mind, we've dedicated our Case Files to this interesting holiday! Draw your own inspiration from The Scene on the Case File, or you can use the traditional clues, which can be found at the bottom of this blog post.
The traditional CSI clues can be found on our Facebook page in the first entry under the album. Just click on the Case File images above. They are also posted at the bottom of this reveal.

To submit your layouts, click on the Case Files  in our sidebar, which will bring you to the individual albums in our Facebook group.


We're thrilled to have the members of the 2Crafty design team joining us as Guest Detectives this month. You are sure to be inspired by their beautiful work!


And now, are you ready for some serious inspiration? Here's what our design team and guest designers created with Case File No. 300. We will share their creations for Case File No. 301and the Cold Case on the 15th.

My journaling was written on labels and I documented a workspace.
