CSI has been published! - Road Trip {CSI Case File No. S365-1}

I'm so excited to finally share a secret I've been keeping since January. CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration has been published in Scrap365, UK's biggest and best scrapbooking magazine. The August/September issue begins our collaboration of special Case Files created especially for Scrap365. Three of our CSI Detectives (Heather Jacob, Sylvia, Mellander, and I) have layouts published in the CSI article, which begins on page 41). Here's a look at the cover of the current issue (arrows added to show our CSI feature):

We opened this Case File for investigation yesterday, and it will run all month.

Here is my page. Clues I used... EVIDENCE: map, stripes, metal, photo corners, circles, sunburst, travel accents, something transparent; TESTIMONY: road trip, 8 fun(ny) facts, journal across 3 labels.


Here are some details: These circles were cut out of two different papers, one very old by A2Z Essentials and the other by American Crafts (Amy Tangerine). The mask in the background is from The Crafter's Workshop, and I used stmap ink.

I was going to do the 8 fun things and then I started remembering all these funny little bits about this road trip to Maine Farzad and I took with my mom and gram years ago, so I went with that. I used Headline rub-ons for the label that says 8 FUNNY THINGS. Love those things--I've had them for years and they still go on like butter. They're really tiny too.


This camera was cut from an Amy Tangerine paper. The brad is by Colorbok. I used papers from lots of different companies on this page--October Afternoon, My Mind's Eye, Lily Bee, Pink Paislee. I love mixing up papers.


This transparent item is by Glitz Design. The border punch is Martha Stewart.


These letter stickers are by BasicGrey. I cut the little geotags out with my Silhouette Cameo.


We hope you will play with us this month. One lucky winner will win the latest copy of Scrap365. If you've never seen this magazine, it's awesome. I've subscribed to just about every scrapbook magazine over the years, and I must say, this is the very best publication I've ever seen. Each issue is chock-full of gorgeous layouts from scrappers around the world, every single one accompanied by commentary from the designer. There are numerous articles in each issue: trendy technique with step-by-step instructions; tons of inspiring articles on topics ranging from journaling to designer's styles to tips for using products by top-notch designers; pull-out sketches; and so much more. Scrap365 has an amazing design team, including some of our very own CSI Detectives: Emma Trout, Heather Jacob, and Riikka Kovasin. You really must check out Scrap365! Check out the Scrap365 blog too for added inspiration, too!

Oh, and I have a second layout published in this issue, too. Here's a peek at it:

I love this page so much Debbi - it is just perfect! I discovered this mag when we were overseas in the UK last year and I liked it so much that I took out subscription to it (the first time I have ever done that!). We can't get it in NZ either :(

Congratulations on the publication Debbi...that is awesome.

I love this layout and it's gorgeous stenciling and those circles - fabulous. I also love the doodling and lines around your elements.

Congratulations!!!!!! Yay! This is such a wonderful layout! It's great to scrap older photos, even though it seems funny that 2000 is considered older.... time has sure flown by so quickly! :)
