Welcome to CSI! We're so delighted you're here.
CSI is a weekly scrapbooking challenge that inspires you to try new colors schemes and to tell your stories. Our Case Files provide inspiration that will get you thinking about scrapbooking in a whole new way.
A new Case File opens for investigation every Friday evening at 6:00 p.m. EST. Come join the design team and CSI members in a live chat every reveal night!
CSI is all about inspiration and sharing and, most important, fun! We can't wait to see the stories you'll tell and the art you'll create!
And a huge thank you to Michele Singh, who has put countless hours into additional graphics for CSI, including our awesome CSI Coordinates! Please let Michele know how much you love and appreciate the Coordinates!

If you haven't yet seen the artists who were placed Under Surveillance this past week, be sure to scroll down on this front page. We have added an archive in the forums so that you can always check out the Under Surveillance line-ups for past Case Files, and we've created a permanent page for our Star Witnesses.
We're delighted to welcome back a sponsor we had last summer. Peace, Love & Scrapbooking was born out of a passion for scrapbooking and preserving memories. They strive to put together kits that feature the latest products from several manufacturers ... taking care to make sure everything coordinates perfectly! Each kit is jam packed with paper and embellies and will always contain enough product for you to create several stunning layouts or cards. Peace, Love & Scrapbooking isn't a typical kit club, there is no membership or monthly minimums ... just beautiful kits at one low price! You choose what you want, when you want it and how many of each kit you'd like!
Peace Love, and Scrapbooking is donating a kit to one lucky winner. In addition, they are offering CSI members a special discount. See the Case File thread for details.
We are happy to have Flying Unicorn as a generous permanent sponsor, donating a gift certificate to a CSI winner each month.
Flying Unicorn.. it’s about One of a Kind. We offer an incredible selection of products for all paper crafting artists. Our Kit of the Month is filled with the latest and greatest and includes an off-the-page project to keep your creative muse flowing! Come visit our forums, a hot and happening place which includes monthly challenges, tips, techniques and friendships that last!
We are also pleased to announce a second permanent sponsor who will be offering a wonderful prize of beautiful ribbons and trims each week to our Star Witness.
Scrapbook Fantasies is a Scrapbooking, Papercrafts and Mixed Media business opened in November 2002 in Gladstone, Queensland. The well stocked store receives new stock daily, and supports a boutique style online store here. The owner Alicia runs Weekly Challenges and many other competitions giving away over $250 dollars in store vouchers every month. The Gallery hosts thousands of customer creations, and is available for viewing without login. Parcels are posted within Australia at a flat $6.50 or the actual postage rate (whichever is the lesser), or FREE for orders over $100. International parcels are posted at the actual postage rate.
We thank all of our sponsors for their generous prize donations to our CSI Members!

The votes for Star Witness this week were unanimous! Christine's heartbreaking story of family conflict and tragedy captivated us. She wove a fascinating family story that could be published as one of history's mysteries. We hope tat Christine will someday fulfill her mother's desire and find her aunt.
