April Case Files - First Reveal | Deadline: May 4, 2021

Happy April! Spring is finally here, with trees beginning to bloom and blossoms peeking up in our garden. We're excited to bring new challenges, new sponsors, and new guest designers to inspire you! 

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 always 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 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.


We've got a mixed bag for our Case Files this month. April 1 is National Llama Day--April Fools! It's really not, but hey, llamas are cute, so why not? For our second Case File, we're celebrating April Showers, and for our Cold Case, we've got you covered for your Easter Photos. As always, you don't have to scrap these topics. 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 honored to have some members of  CUT to YOU and 2Crafty design teams joining us as Guest Detectives this month! 


And now, are you ready for some serious inspiration? Here's what our design team and guest designers created with this month's first Case File. We will share their creations for our other two Case Files on the 15th of the month.

The talented Guest Detectives from the 2Crafty design team expertly cracked the Case. 

How Charmane solved the Case: I was inspired to use a photo of my Dog in place of a Llama with Stitching, Watercolour, Rubons, Stamping and Word Stickers to pull the clues together.

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! You don't have to use all of the categories of clues. use what inspires you, or challenge yourself to use as many clues as you can. Or just use the image to inspire you as you wish!
