October Case Files - Mid-Month Reveal | Deadline: November 4, 2021

We're back! This time, to share inspiration for our second Case File and our Cold Case File.

We hope you've had a chance to play with our first Case File, but if you haven't yet had time, don't worry--all three of our Case Files are open all month--plus a few extra days, until the 4th.


A NEW DETECTIVE! 

We're very excited to welcome Wendy Meffan onto the CSI design team!


Hi everyone ! It’s Wendy Meffan here and I’m so excited to be joining this amazing team of designers at CSI and can’t wait to start solving the case files. Here is a little more info about me … I have been scrapbooking for about 14 years and enjoy documenting our family life. I have become far more adventurous in my scrapping and I particularly enjoy mixed media now which used to be a pet hate of mine in the early days! I realise I have also become a total hoarder of all things scrappy and can’t pack light when going to scrap away from the house! I live in the UK near London and am married with three grown up children. I am a Physiotherapist and run a practice from our home. I love spending time with my family, playing tennis and travelling when it’s possible. Xx

You can see Wendy's beautiful work on her Instagram.


SPONSORS

CASE FILES 

Here in the U.S., Halloween is a pretty big deal, so our challenges this month celebrate all things Halloween and spooky and fall and monster-y! As always, though, you don't have to scrap these topics--as you will see from the creative takes from our design team. 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.
