Snow Day {CSI Case File No. S365-10}

We've got a great Case File open all month at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. This Case File was made for our collaboration with Scrap365. Sadly, this magazine is closing down, but our design team had already made layouts, so we decided to open this for investigation.

Here's my page. Clues I used... Evidence:  jars, metal, flowers (in the green patterned paper), raffia, puffy stickers, cursive font, chalk, something powdery; Testimony: Document a winter favorite, haiku.

Here are some details. I have this little container of small bits and pieces that are too small to save but that I save nonetheless. This little piece of chipboard was leftover from a larger piece. It looked like a window, so I tucked it behind the layers and added crystal glitter to look like snow that gathers in the windowpanes.

The jar was cut from a Dear Lizzy paper, and how fortunate I was that I had some raffia in the exact color to match the palette! I used a bunch of old papers for this layout. The background is BasicGrey--one of my all-time favorite papers. The gray stripe was a gift from my dear scrappy friend Eila Sandberg--it's Maja Designs. The coral colored paper is My Mind's Eye, and the green is VERY old KiMemories paper.

I used a stencil by Crafter's Workshop and chalk for those circles in the background.

I wrote my haiku on some old Fontwerks labels. As a teacher, I have to admit that snow days are my favorite thing about winter. The title was cut out on my Silhouette Cameo, as were the snowflakes.

 There's my puffy sticker (it's by American Crafts), another good find that matched my  colors perfectly. That other salmon paper on the right is by Crate Paper. The little metal dots are by Colorbok. That transparency bar code was another tiny bit that was in my "things too small to save" box, as was that little strip of hearts, a tear strip from a 6 x 6 paper. I love it when I can manage to put buttons on my page. I have SO many!

You must go check out the reveal to see what our team and guest designers made.  We're super-excited to have Prima sponsoring us this month! Check out the prize that's up for grabs (it's a sneak peek, since they won't be revealing it until mid-month):
