July Case Files - Mid-month Reveal | Deadline: August 4, 2021

It's mid-month reveal time, and have we got some gorgeous inspiration for our beautiful summery Case Files! 

For this second reveal, we'll be sharing inspiration for our second Case File and our stash-busting Cold Case. Remember, all of our Case Files are open through the 4th of the next month, so you still have time to work on all 3 Cases. The more you play, the more chances you have of being selected to win a prize from one of our generous sponsors.


SPONSORS 

This month, we have eight 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 

Our challenges this month celebrate some of the delights of summer. We've got a Case File to celebrate the 4th of July, one dedicated to ice cream, and a third Case File inspired by summer fairs and carnivals. 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.
