January Case Files - Mid-Month Reveal | Deadline: February 4 (And Beyond)

Greetings, CSI Investigators! So sorry for the delay of our mid-month reveal. I injured my knee a week and a half ago and was held captive on the main level of my house for a week, but I was finally able to get to my computer and my craft room! We're excited to share our beautiful inspiration for our New Year-inspired Case File.

Don't forget that both of our Case Files stay open all month (and beyond--see below). We can't wait to see what you'll create!


We're excited to announce that we have a new CSI Detective! Please give a warm welcome to Antonia Sherlock!

Here's a little bit about Antonia in her own words: Hi, I’m Antonia and I live in the UK with my family. I’m an occupational therapist by day, avid scrapbooker by night, and nature wonderer on the weekends. I started scrapbooking about twelve years ago, wanting to capture and record the special moments in my children’s lives, as they grow up. It has since become a passion and a form of therapy – it keeps me sane when life gets a bit crazy! I am a traditional patterned paper sort of girl at heart and enjoy creating single - and double-page layouts and journal pages. You can find me on my blog, on my YouTube channel, and on my Instagram account


We'll be inviting some players whose work catches our eye to serve as Guest Detectives along the way. We'll investigate the albums on the 4th of the month, so if you're interested in serving as a Guest Detective, make sure you have your layout in the album by the 4th. (But feel free to use past Case Files as inspiration any time.)

And you never know, if your work really wows us, you might even be asked to join our talented design team.


Since it's our birthday today, we're celebrating with our first Case File. If you were here from the beginning, you know our very first Case File was Alice in Wonderland-themed, as January is the month of Lewis Carroll's birthday. And we wanted to make sure to have a Case File to document your New Year's Eve pictures or New Year goals, so we've got our second Case File dedicated to that. 

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.

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 in our sidebar, which will bring you to the individual albums in our Facebook group.


And now, are you ready for some serious inspiration? A reminder of our first Case File...


Here's what our design team created with this month's second Case File. You can see more details on our Instagram page.


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!

We trust we've provided enough clues for you to solve the Cases! You have until February 4, 2024 (and beyond--read about this in the Guest Detective section), to solve both cases. We can't wait to see what you'll create! Upload your creations in our Facebook Group (album links in sidebar).
