June Case Files - First Reveal | Deadline: July 4, 2022

Happy June! We're excited to start a new month of fun and inspiring challenges and lots of beautiful inspiration. 

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 for our second Case File. 


This year, in addition to having sponsors donate prizes, CSI will be giving away a $20 (U.S. dollars) gift certificate to your favorite online craft store (must take Paypal) to one lucky player each month.

We'll also be inviting some players whose work catches our eye to serve as Guest Detectives.

We're excited to have CUT to YOU continue as a prime sponsor this year!
At CUT to YOU you’ll find unique digital cut files for all kinds of paper lovers. Our goal is to provide unique and versatile designs that inspire a world of makers and ignite their joy of creating. For use on all sorts of paper projects, including scrapbook pages, travellers notebooks, cards and more, with over 300 designs to choose from, we really do have a cut file for everyone.

CUT to YOU is all about helping you document your family in a fun and creative way. We create unique designs that do not overwhelm the page, that allow the photos to shine, AND that paper crafters of all levels can use, not just the Scrapbook elite. We believe that cut files should be accessible to everyone so all of our designs are available as Digital downloads as well as physical cut outs called Custom Cuts which can be shipped to you worldwide. In store, you will also find digital scrapbooking kits (KIT to YOU) which feature exclusive cut file designs and all the information you need to recreate the kit in the comfort of your own home, using supplies you already have.

Julia Heald

Hi My name is Julia and I've been scrapping for nearly 20 years now. I love documenting everything from my family, to the small things and more recently my puppy! Scrapbooking for me is the about memory keeping, a creative outlet but mostly, for me, a mindful outlet to de stress from the world.

Here's how Julia solved Case File No. 388: With this case file I was immediately drawn to the colours which reminded me of the new Sweet Rush collection. I've not been to any weddings recently but we did celebrate our 25th Anniversary in lockdown in 2020 so I decided to document it. I used flowers, layers, some small hearts, some tissue paper layers behind my photos for the transparent element and even some lemons. (This was definitely a life gives you lemons moment as instead of the big party we had planned we ended up on a day trip in the car!) The words fab, wow and mood reminded me of how good we felt being allowed to go for a drive and not "stay home" and the final element was to convert this and the details into invitation style journaling.

Lisa Watson

I'm Lisa Watson I have been scrapbooking for 20 years. Probably 14 years ago I became hardcore and scrapped every day. Back then I was able to design for multiple scrapbook stores. Including online and local store. I even was able to work with a small paper manufacturer, which was awesome. I also wrote in a quarterly scrapbook magazine that was available in local stores throughout Michigan. I had to take a break 10 years ago to start a business. In the past couple years have been able to start scrapbooking again consistently. Love the CSI challenges and try to participate every month. I'm happy to be guest designer this month. You can find me on Instagram @Pictures2pages

Here's how Lisa solved Case File No. 388: I loved this month's challenge. I couldn't use the color scheme on this layout. It was for a gender reveal party. I did use floral pattern, stripes, ruffles -doily, flowers, greenery, layers, hearts, scalloped border punch, circles, transparent -pink tulle ribbon and vellum.


And now, are you ready for some serious inspiration? Here's what our design team and Guest Detectives created with this month's first Case File. We will share creations for our other Case File on the 15th of the month.

The CSI design team masterfully cracked the Case. We'll share how we solved the Case on Facebook and Instagram.


Choose as many or as few as you are inspired to use! You don't have to use all of the categories of clues. use what inspires you, or challenge yourself to use as many clues as you can. Or just use the image to inspire you as you wish!
