Happy Friday! It's hard to believe we're opening our last October Case File. How time flies when we're having fun, and it's evident from the gallery that you've been having lots of fun cracking the cases. So much eye candy you've been adding to CSI during this month of treats!
It has been such a pleasure having Scraps of Elegance as our main October sponsor. Scraps of Elegance Kit Club is the softer, flirty, more romantic "sister club" to Scraps of Darkness - the Kit Club for the alternative Scrapper. Scraps of Elegance kits feature all that is beautiful, elegant and romantic in scrapping today. A true classic beauty. Melinda Kelly packs the monthly kits with the highest quality products. Her unusual treasures and finds make this kit truly a unique and different monthly kit club.
What makes Scraps of Elegance different from all other kit clubs is its diverse design team that spans the globe in talent, but more importantly, the team enjoys sharing ideas and mentoring members. Why wouldn't you make Scraps of Elegance your "kit club home" when the team and members are a caring group of "real people", accessible and approachable? There is nothing more satisfying than watching artistic growth within our community--- building confidence, experience, and technique. You are going to be warmly welcomed and feel comfortable about asking "how to" questions. This is how we all grow and succeed!
Consider subscribing to Scraps of Elegance and never miss out on one of these elegant and beautiful kits again. Create something beautiful today... Be sure to visit the Scraps of Elegance blog for additional inspiration!
We also are delighted to announce that Flying Unicorn has generously offered to be a permanent sponsor for the coming year, starting last month. Flying Unicorn...it’s about One of a Kind. They offer an incredible selection of products for all paper crafting artists. Their Kit of the Month is filled with the latest and greatest and includes an off-the-page project to keep your creative muse flowing! The Flying Unicorn design team will be joining us in future months as Guest Detectives.
We recently announced a new permanent sponsor who will be offering a 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. Here is the beautiful offering this week, which is hand-picked to coordinate with this week's Case File:
As always, we have handpicked four CSI Members to join us as our October team of Special Investigators. Please welcome Emma Stafrace, Joyce Lawrence, Malin Svensson, and Rachelle Sigurdson. These ladies' beautiful work has consistently caught our eye in the gallery, and we've been delighted to have them on the team this month!
Please use the links to visit all these ladies' pages in the Guest Detective forum to say hi and to hear how they responded to our "Interrogation."
As always, Michele has created a gorgeous set of printables for you! Check out the awesome frames and papers Michele made for us this week!
CSI Coordinates can always be found at the bottom of the reveal threads. Scroll all the way to the bottom, where it says "Attachments." They are just above the reply box. Read about some tips on how to use these cool printables here. Please note that this week's coordinates are in two separate files.
So are you ready for this week's challenge? Here in the United States, October is known for Halloween, and one of our favorite parts of Halloween is all the treats that come with this fun holiday, so our theme this month is all things sweet!
Grab your forensics kits, CSI members, and get ready for some serious sleuthing as we open Case File No. 43.
**Remember to scroll all the way down for RGB codes, color descriptions, and more thorough explanations of the Evidence and Testimony prompts.
This is how our talented team of Special Investigators have solved the case...
And this is how the CSI Detectives have cracked the case, arranged by predominant color in the order of The Scheme...
**Detailed clues, as promised...
EVIDENCE (USE AT LEAST 2 ELEMENTS)
TESTIMONY (USE AT LEAST 1 ELEMENT)
We trust we've left enough clues for you to solve the case!
The deadline for completing Case File No. 43
is Sunday, November 4, 11:59 p.m. EST.
Thus, you have a week plus the two weekends to complete your layout.
(See count-down timer on the right-hand sidebar of most pages.)
We can't wait to see what YOU create!
