August Case Files - First Reveal | Deadline: September 4, 2021

Happy August! Summer is zooming by! We're back with some more fun and inspiring challenges for you that will help you document your summer adventures.

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.


We're excited to announce that Melanie Hyatt is joining the CSI design team!

Hi y'all! I’m Melanie and I live in South Louisiana. I have been married almost 25 years to Danny. We have 3 girls, the baby is at LSU. 

We have 2 spoiled fur babies Augie and Millie. 

I am a full time RN (26th year) and I have worked for Hospices in Texas and Louisiana as a triage nurse for 14 years and am blessed to work from home. I love gardening, growing flowers and vegetables. I love to cook and bake! 

Scrapbooking is my biggest addiction! I could do it all day! I love mixed media and seeing on paper! I have also just became addicted to TN/memory planning. I am so happy to be here with the wonderful and incredibly talented ladies!

You can find more of Melanie's work on Instagram.


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.


Our challenges this month celebrate summer vacations. 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.
