Happy Camper {CSI Case File No. 256}

We've got a super-fun new Case File for our mid-month challenge at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration! I made a page for one of my students:

Here's our Case File:

I used the color scheme and many of the traditional Evidence clues, including solid white background, stripes, grid, dots, triangles, circles, tags, twine, animals, bunting, cacti. I wanted to have the playful, graphic vibe of the Scene on my layout.
Here are some details. I wanted a circular element in the background as part of my design, and this cut file reminded me of a sun. I need to start writing stuff down because I can't for the life of me figure out which cut file it is! The "Happy Camper" title is from The Cut Shoppe. For the circles clue, I found these super-old Chatterbox letter stickers. I think they look kind of cool and not at all out of date. The clouds were cut from a patterned paper.

How awesome are these cacti? They're free cut files from Paper Issues--called Tropic Like It's Hot. The chipboard camper is by Crate Paper, and I couldn't resist putting that little Shimelle fox puffy sticker in the window. The bunting is a die I got on ebay.

I found another fox puffy sticker as well as a heart puffy sticker. I tore the black cardstock to look like land.

I hope you'll come play with us! Look at all the sponsors--fifteen of them--donating prizes this month:

Just Darling {CSI Case File No. 255}

Our first June Case File at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration is whimsical and delightful. It was chosen to commemorate National Donut Day:

I made this page for a friend of mine. I had just recently purchased a sticker sheet from Echo Park's Imagine That collection, which has many of the colors in the Case File, and when I saw that there were lots of animals on that sticker sheet, I decided that would be my starting place. From there, I chose several of the traditional Evidence clues, including: stripes, hearts, bows, rhinestones, animals, glitter, and stars.

Here are some details. I love the scripty foam Thickers, but they're so big for an 8 x 8 page, but I just had to use it for the title because it's just the word I thought of when I saw these photos.

I couldn't resist tucking that kitty unicorn into the clouds. The sticker sheet came with only one floral element, but I found a sheet of flowers in the same shade of pink and fussy cut them to add to other spots on my page. I was trying to figure out where to add rhinestones (one of the Evidence clues), and I decided they'd look whimsical on the clouds.

 The sparkly teal frame is by Crate Paper.

As always, we've got tons of generous sponsors donating prizes and gift certificates, so I hope you'll come play along for some fun and a chance to win!
