January Case Files - Deadline: January 31, 2019

Happy New Year! We're so excited to be back with another year of scrapbook challenges!

And Happy Birthday, CSI! Today, CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration turns 7 years old! CSI has seen many changes over the years since its birth, and this year we continue to evolve so that we can make this the best challenge ever. Here is a list of some of the changes we have planned:

  • Both Case Files will open on the 1st of each month so that you have the whole month to complete either or both of the challenges.
  • Facebook will now be the place where you'll submit your creations. We're hoping to encourage more interaction through comments and likes this way.
  • We'll highlight the inspiration behind each design team member's layout, one each day, on our main facebook page. This will allow you to take the time to appreciate and savor each creation.
  • We'll be featuring some of our players' layouts that catch our eye on our main Facebook page throughout the month.
  • We're bringing back Special Investigators! From those our layouts, we will choose a couple of players to serve as guest designers in a subsequent month.
  • We're adding an additional challenge each month called the Cold Case File. This challenge is meant to encourage you to use your older stash. 
We look forward to the excitement these changes will bring! 


As in the past, we will continue to have many wonderful sponsors! We begin the year with five sponsors, but we will be adding more as we acquire more sponsors (I got a late start on contacting them this year). Click here to read more about our sponsors and the prizes they are donating.


Without further ado, we present our January Case Files:

And we present our new bonus Cold Case File:

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 January albums in our Facebook group.


And now, are you ready for some serious inspiration? Here's what our design team created with Case File No. 269. We will share their creations for Case File No. 270 on the 15th.
