April Case Files - First Reveal - Deadline: May 4, 2020

Happy April. We hope you are safe and well during these difficult times we're facing with the Coronavirus Pandemic. We hope to bring you a bit of fun and joy to take your mind off of the troubles as we share a new month of inspiration and fun challenges! We hope you've been enjoying the March challenges, and don't forget that if you haven't yet had a chance to play, we've added a few extra days to the deadline--submissions will be accepted by the 4th of the next month.

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 as well as our Cold Case File, our special stash-busting challenge.


This month, we have seven 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.


We're celebrating National Decorating Month and April Showers with our Case Files and the breezy freedom of spring with our Cold Case File. 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.

We've got a special Guest Detective joining us this month--Sophie Delorme! Sophie is a member of the Hip Kit Club and creates the most beautiful layouts! We've admired her work and we were thrilled when she accepted our invitation to be a guest designer. We're also excited to have some members of the CUT to YOU and the 2Crafty design teams 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. 315. We will share their creations for Case File No. 319 and the Cold Case on the 15th.

Here's how Sophie Delorme cracked the Case:

Here's how Sophie drew inspiration from the Case File: I used the yellow and pink color scheme. Here are the evidences I used: Black and white stripes, florals, hexagons on the background, textured/embossed cardstock (with the mixed media), puffy stickers, paint and a frame.  I had so much fun playing with your concept !

Here's how the talented team members of the 2Crafty Design Team solved the Case:

The inspiring guest designers from CUT to YOU solved the Case too.

The CSI design team masterfully cracked the Case. We'll share how they solved the Case on Facebook.


Choose as many or as few as you are inspired to use!
