Ready for School | CSI Case File No. 331+ Paper Issues Free File Free for All Challenge

The second September Case File at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration reminded me of a perfect FREE cut file from Paper Issues, one of our sponsors this month. And I had the perfect picture of my friend's daughter to use for this challenge.

Here are the Case File and clues for this challenge:

I used the color scheme and as always, I challenged myself to use as many Evidence clues as I could. I managed to use dots, text pattern, stars, planet (globe), light bulb, school-related elements, alphabet as a design element, stacked books, transparent elements, dangle elements, punch, string, and decorative borders.

Here's the awesome FREE cut file I used from Paper Issues.

I always enjoy digging through my stash to find the perfect elements for my CSI pages. All of the papers I used to back the book cut files were from my paper scraps drawers. Most are pretty ancient.

That little schoolhouse was cut out of a paper. I found that pencil on a scrap of paper, but I didn't have any full-length pencils on the scrap, so I pieced two halves together and covered it up with some old Jenni Bowlin school-themed letter stickers. The pink ledger chipboard alphabet are old Making Memories Noteworthy. The black chipboard letters are from BasicGrey. When all else fails, add a Tweet wood veneer from Studio Calico.

These transparent light bulbs are by Maya Road. The stars were cut out of the same paper as the little schoolhouse in the above picture. Those scattered letters in the background are a stamp by Carabelle Studio. The cool black heart globe is a piece by Bramble Fox.

I found this old Studio Calico wood veneer school  days speech bubble in my stash, which was a perfect touch.

I hope you'll come play along with CSI. As always, we have loads of sponsors donating prizes each month.

I love this layout. You always give me ideas for using older papers I have in my stash. I'm using your idea of random stamping letters on a school page that I want to do.
