Hello Sunshine {CSI Case File No. 270 & Paper Issues Let's Get Fussy challenge}

Our midmonth reveal at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration is live today. Here's the page I created, which I also created for Paper Issues Let's Get Fussy challenge:

Here's the Case File that inspired this layout. I used some of the traditional evidence clues, as well as the colors: woodgrain, metal, frames, branches, flowers, animal, brush lettering, wood veneer. You can see all of the clues at the bottom of the reveal.

Here are some details: This beautiful cut file is free at the Paper Issues store! This one is called Fresh Picked Wreath. They have TONS of free cut files. Go grab one so you can play in not only the CSI challenge, but the Paper Issues Free File Free-for-All challenge or one of the many other challenges at PI, like the Let's Get Fussy challenge. I had some papers with black and white flowers, and I used my Prima watercolor pencils to color them in and then fussy cut them. Those blue leaves were cut from an Amy Tangerine paper.

I found this yellow die cut in my stash that had brush lettering to go with one of the clues. And the metal frame counted for two clues. It's a super-old Making Memories frame. I added those little wood veneer hearts for another clue.

I found a brad with an animal to meet that clue.

While you're checking out the free cut files, be sure to check out all the new stuff at the Paper Issues store. Please use my code, Debbi (no e on the end), and you'll get 20% off your entire order!

I hope you'll play at CSI and at Paper Issues--they give away 2 gift certificates to their store every month, and we've got lots of sponsors donating prizes this month:

Trick or Treat {Paper Issues Scraplift Sunday Challenge}

I played in Paper Issues Scraplift Sunday challenge and made this:

I loved lifting Kat's beautiful layout--such a fun and unique design! I pretty much copied the basic design, except I used one photo instead of three.

No photo description available.

Here are some details. I used Bella Blvd's Sweet & Spooky Collection. There are so many fun elements to fussy cut from this collection. The Sweet & Spooky tab is from the branding strip. The little witch girl was at the edge of the paper and I hated to see her go to waste so I put her peeking out from above the photo.

The chipboard pieces in this collection are so cute! Pretty much everything on this page is from the collection, except the enamel dots and the Tim Holtz word stickers. I put a little heart on the ghost because I'm adding a heart to each page I make for this little girl.

I hope you'll play along with this challenge or one of the many other fun challenges at Paper Issues. Post your creation in the Facebook Group by February 3 for a chance to win one of two gift cards to the Paper Issues store. Please use my code Debbi (no e on the end) for a 20% discount on your entire purchase at the Paper Issues store!
