July Case Files {Mid-Month Reveal}

July is flying, and now that we're halfway through the month, we're excited to bring you some inspiration for our second July Case File and 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 June Case File here.


SPONSORS 

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.




CASE FILES 

We're celebrating summer with our July Case Files. Draw your own inspiration from The Scene or you can use the traditional clues, which can be found at the bottom of this blog post.

July is National Ice Cream Month, and what more delicious symbol of summer could there be? This delightful Scene is by UK illustrator Louise Lockhart.



The sea is another symbol of summer. This beautiful Scene is by another UK artist, Peter Adderley.



And of course we have our stash-busting Cold Case features a sweet Scene by Rebecca Jones.



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 above, which will bring you to the individual albums in our Facebook group.




GUEST DESIGNERS

We are thrilled to have the talented Paper Issues design team join us as Guest Detectives this month. We also chose a talented player from our collaboration with Tell Us a Story, Elena Feyzova, to be a Guest Detective. You are sure to be inspired by their work!



INSPIRATION 

And now, are you ready for some serious inspiration? Here's what our design team and guest designers created with Case File No. 289. 



Here's how the talented Guest Detectives from the Paper Issues DesignTeam solved the Case:



Debbi used the awesome Paper Issues Fishing in the Dark kit.
