You & Me: Fabulous {CSI Case File No. 171}

We've got a yummy new Case File open for investigation at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration:

Here's my page. Clues I used...Evidence all except for the window; Testimony: Document a celebration, inspiration words--celebrate, treat.

Tracee and I scrapped the same photos. We had some idea for a page when we snapped these pictures, and then we couldn't quite remember what we had originally planned, so we used all four of the pictures. We even used the same sketch from PageMaps:

Here are some details. The "you" and "me" are cut files from The Cut Shoppe, who are sponsoring us this month. This is from "This and That" set. I used a white gel pen to outline the letters. My white pens were all clogged, and I was about to toss them. but I found a video on YouTube talking about how you can take apart your pen to fix it, and I was so happy it worked! That cork ampersand is by Teresa Collins. The gold stars are from Heidi Swapp. That little strawberry was added for the food clue. I used molding paste mixed with white paint and a stencil from The Crafter's Workshop in the background.

The "Fabulous" is also from the same set from The Cut Shoppe. That white fringe-y bit is a piece from a pack of Doodleug frills--I've had them FOREVER. Papers I used are Pink Paislee (dark tan), American Crafts (pink triangles and diagonal striped background), My Mind's Eye (polka dot), Teresa Collins (pink stripe).

The gold arrow is from the same Heidi Swapp set as the gold stars. That black banner is by Recollections. The little wooden ladies are by Studio Calico.

The Case File called for chevrons, and I used chevrons in the very background, but you couldn't really tell they were chevrons, so I found this cork circle that had chevrons printed on it, by The Paper Studio (I think this is a Hobby Lobby brand). The check mark is from the same gold Heidi Swapp set I already mentioned, and the #Perfect is MAMBI.

The SMILES stamp is from an Amy Tangerine rotary stamp. The kraft artisan-shaped label is by Maya Road. I glued that little heart on there.

And here's my journaling.

I hope you'll come play for a chance to win some awesome prizes from all our July sponsors:  Carolina Ghelfi Scrapbooking, Creative Embellishments, Funky Flairs Studio, Lawn Fawn, Flying Unicorn, and Scrapbook Fantasies, and The Cut Shoppe.

Zi End {CSI Case File No. 170}

We've got a fun, new Case File open for investigation at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration:

Here's my page. Clues I used... Evidence: banner, arrows, stripes, triangles, solid brads, flair, scallops, photo corners, asterisks, metal, window (sort of). Testimony: inspiration words--run, summer, delicious.

I used the current sketch at Sketchabilities as inspiration for my page:

Here are some details. The awesome alphabet cut file is from The Cut Shoppe, one of our sponsors this month. It's Called "Little Letters" and is just perfect for telling my story. That chipboard geotag is by MAMBI. Papers I used are American Crafts, Amy Tan (turquoise), Bella Blvd. (red), SEI (navy), and October Afternoon (green). I added a little washi tape to the edges for the stripe clue.

The "yum" button is from A Flair for Buttons. The letters and asterisks are American Crafts, with the exception of the large Z, which I cut out with my Silhouette. That metal photo corner is ancient--by Making Memories, I believe. The scallop border sticker is by Echo Park.

This little cluster tells my story. Some of you might remember my Alphabet Adventure layout. My husband and I have eaten through the alphabet, a different letter each week when we go to lunch after church. We made it through the end of the alphabet, hence the title. The label stickers are super old, by Fontwerks. Don't you hate it when a company goes away? The tiny triangle stamp is by Kaiser Kraft. I used some Heidi Swapp mist to add a few random drops and outlined them with black pen.

This was a really fun Case File to work with. Go check out what the rest of the team and guest designers made with this Case File. And if you want a chance to win some of Ashley's awesome cut files, try your hand at solving the Case File. We've got lots of other great sponsors too, including Carolina Ghelfi Scrapbooking, Creative Embellishments, Funky Flairs Studio, Lawn Fawn, Flying Unicorn, and Scrapbook Fantasies.

2Crafty DT Work for July

It's my turn at the 2Crafty blog today.  I've got two layouts to share.

"Happy Mail"
I'm so delighted to be starting my second term with 2Crafty! 
Thank you, Vanessa, for keeping me on to work with your awesome products.
I recently won a prize from a sketch challenge, 
so I decided to make a page about that, 
coupling some awesome 2Crafty chipboard with the kit I won.
The "Happy" in my title is from the Happy Birthday Card Words set. 
That's a wonderful set to get--it has 8 "Happy Birthdays" in the set.
I inked that word and the arrow from the Assorted Arrows set" with black ink.

I swiped several shades of ink on the Doily to get the right color to match my papers. 
The circle from the Circle Stack was also inked with black.

This delightful Heidi's Vine was swiped with several shades of green stamp ink, 
and then I drew some veins on the leaves with a pen 
and added a few pink rhinestones to the buds.

Because I scrap 8 x 8, the borders are too long for my pages, 
so I snipped to bits from the Doily Border and swiped it with ink 
to match the doily I used under my photo. The lovely cursive "love" 
is from Mini Word Set 2.

How handy is the pack of 2015's to document the date? I also coated these with black ink.

"You Rock My World"

Last summer I went to a bunch of concerts, 
and I found THE perfect 2Crafty pieces 
to capture the excitement of that summer.

I used the You Rock My World title as the centerpiece of my layout. 
I inked the star in two shades of yellow to match the stars in my paper. 
Then I inked the words black. 
Next, I masked some of the title and coated the word "Rock"
 with embossing ink and silver Zing embossing powder. 
Once that had melted, I added glue to the rest of my title and sprinkled black glitter. 
I mounted the title on adhesive foam to make the title pop off the page.

I coated the Gears and Music Notes with the Zing embossing powder 
and inked the little stars from the ATC Tiny Stars and Hearts sheet in a yellow 
to match the star in my title..

I cut another silver embossed Gear in half to use in two spots on my page.

I used leftover pieces of Film Strips Small and Tiny on my layout. 
I embossed those with black ink. 
I've got a music note layered on top of the film strip and a tiny star adhered to the music notes. 
I love that I can layer three pieces of chipboard on top of each other, 
and my layout still isn't too bulky.

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a peek at my pages. 
I hope I gave you some ideas for using these awesome 2Crafty chipboard elements!

Sweetness & Light {CSI Case File No. 169}

We've got a new Case File open for investigation at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration:

Here the page I made. Clues I used...Evidence: light bulbs, stars, stamps, diamond shapes, stencils, pearls, eyeglasses, sunburst rays; Testimony: Inspiration Words sweetness, light; Journal as dialogue.

I sort of deconstructed the sketch by turning it sideways, staggering the photos and placing the banners in different directions.

I must confess, the photos were completely planned based on this Case File, as you can tell from reading the dialogue!

Here are some details. We've got The Cut Shoppe sponsoring CSI this month, and Ashley was kind enough to provide the design team with some cut files to work with. This lightbulb came from her shop in a set of four. The Title was one I pieced together from various cut files from the Silhouette store. The title comes from the title of the Case File's Scene. Papers I used are American Crafts (striped background), Teresa Collins (orange quatrefoil and tickets), SEI (teal blossoms), My Mind's Eye (dots). The turquoise paper behind the photos is actually cardboard from the cupcake box. Thanks, Tracee, for that idea.

The Cut Shoppe is offering a discount this week to CSI members:

How cool is this cut file? Also from The Cut Shoppe. Those fun speech bubbles and the banner sticker are by MAMBI. I stamped those eyeglasses using a My Mind's Eye stamp an dadded some googly eyes for whimsy.

Tracee and I found these cute puffy cupcake stickers during one of our craft store shopping sprees, and we had to get them for this layout. The diamond stamp in the background is by Fiskars, and I also used a stencil with ink behind that. The lightbulb below is also from that same set from The Cut Shoppe.

You must go see what the rest of the team and guest designers made and play for a chance to win some of these awesome Cut Files and prizes from six other sponsors!
