November Case Files | Mid-Month Reveal

Now that we're halfway through the month, we're excited to bring you some inspiration for our second November Case File and for our Cold Case File.

Don't forget you have all month to participate in all three of our challenges. You can see inspiration for our first October Case File here.


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. 301.

Emma's blog
How Emma solved the Case: I cracked the case by sticking close to the colour tone. 
I used an image that had fish in it. Incorporated a wood grain concept with my stamping, I used leaves, frames and a light bulb. I also used the word ‘Home’ in my journal concept.

Marie's blog
How Marie solved the Case: I used moodboard colors and also my evidence: Stripes, Floral pattern, Book Pages, Banner, Leaves, Butterfly, Frames, Spiral

The chipboards used
- A Mother is a Special kind of Friend

How Lisa solved the Case:

I have used the following 2Crafty Chipboard
Discover -
ATC Tiny Hearts and Stars -
Moroccan Tile Panel -

How Marie Claude solved the Case: I have used an old ledger paper for my background, cut-apart cards and a pile of teared papers to mat my photo. At first, I had a blue scheme in my mind when I dug into my stash, but in the end, I went with a red and cream layout, in a almost Christmas theme.
