Christmas Tradition | CSI Case File No. 400

Merry Christmas!

Today I'm sharing a layout I created for CSI: Color Stories Inspiration's first December challenge.

Here are the Case File and clues for this challenge:

I had fun searching my stash for Evidence clues and managed to get ALL of them on my 8 x 8 page. I also used the colors from the Case File as well as documenting Christmas.

I was really inspired by the overall look of the Scene--the round scale face, the white on white snowflakes, and the pretty Christmas flowers and leaves. I didn't have a scale, but I had a large clock ace and a clock hand that mimicked the look in the Scene. I used Carta Bella's Hello Christmas collection for this page. One of the papers had tags that I fussy-cut I added some ancient eyelets and baker's twine for more detail and texture. 

I selected that brad because of the metal clue and also it has stars for the stars clue. I added the red glittery heart because I always add hearts to the pages I give away. And how fun are those red and white beads that I found in my stash? They look like peppermint candy to me! I love finding the perfect little bits for my pages!

Bows were a clue, and I found this sparkly red bow in my stash. The holly met the foliage clue. That beautiful red acrylic title is from Bramble Fox. You can see I managed to find some lace, which is sort of a kind of ribbon to add to the vertical strips in the background.

It's hard to see, but I sprinkled some shiny white star sequins on my page. I also added some rub-on snowflakes, which was another clue and of course another brad for the metal clue and the circle clue.

I really have fun poring through my stash in search of the perfect things for my pages and love to challenge myself to use all of the clues on my pages! I hope you'll come play with us for a chance to win a gift certificate or a guest designer spot.
