Christmas Joy {CSI Major Case File No. 219}

We've got a new Case File open for investigation at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration with an awesome sketch by The Nifty Pixel:

Here's the page I made. I made this for my niece-in-law and her husband. Clues I used--Evidence: polka dots, plaid, stripes, holiday stuff, snowflakes, burlap, ribbon, tags, metal, tree; Testimony: Journal about the holidays. (I stuck a tag in there so they could record their holiday memories.)

Here are some closeups. I searched and searched my stash for plaid papers in the palette and couldn't find any, and then I found some plaid ribbon, which met two of the clues. I only had one photo, so I used this filmstrip frame by K&Co, and I put some different patterned papers in the different sections to represent the photos in the sketch.

The chipboard "Christmas" title is by 2Crafty. That script in the background was made with a stencil by The Crafter's Workshop and some texture paste mixed with white acrylic paint. I was going crazy trying to figure out what color to use for this piece because I really wanted to use those sparkly white Thicker letters to match up with the sparkles on the snowflakes. I finally decided on coating them with a sparkly black embossing powder which doesn't show up well in the photo. Please pardon the harsh shadows on my photos. So hard to get a decent photo this time of the year.

It was fun going through my holiday papers and embellishments to find stuff to use. The snowflakes are Jolie's, as is the candy cane. I got that little wooden tree from a french company called Simply Graphic. I found that black sparkly scalloped border that matched my title. It's really old, by K&Co. I stapled everything on to meet the metal clue.

I hope you'll come play with us. We've got some wonderful sponsors donating prizes.
