Family - CSI Case File No.155

Hey everyone,
how are you all this time? I'm great by the way. Today's word is "There's come a time when you have to choose between turning the page and closing the book." And here's come another case file from CSI (Color, Stories, Inspiration) with Case File No.155
We're so excited to welcome back 2Crafty Chipboard as our main sponsor.
 2 Crafty strives to offer affordable and versatile laser cut chipboard products to the Australian and International craft market. 2Crafty’s products are manufactured here in Australia and offer products suitable for scrapbooking, cardmaking, altered art, invitations and mixed media, and with over 1000 designs, every area has been covered.

2Crafty’s owner Vanessa, stumbled on the demonstration of the laser cutter at one of the Sydney craft fairs back in 2006, and although her background was Human Resources and payroll, her creative mind could see unlimited possibilities, and so began her journey into the world of a craft wholesaler.

2Crafty designs are supported both locally and in the overseas market, and Vanessa strives to offer the highest level of customer support, and is happy to discuss personalized orders with customers via their local scrapbooking store.

2Crafty also offers a fabulous blog that is updated several times a week with projects created from its talented international Design Team.
The 2Crafty website, although a wholesale website, offers you a bird's eye view of all the wonderful designs that it offers. Make sure you check out the stockist list, and don’t be afraid to ask your local store to order products that they may not have in stock.
Here is a sampling of the beautiful 2Crafty chipboard that one CSI player can win this month:

And we are so happy to have Scrapbook Fantasies as another permanent sponsor. Scrapbook Fantasies is donating a prize of beautiful embellishments 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 Redshaw 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. 

And my layout for that...
The Color Scheme : Seafoam Green, Lavender, White, Light Sky Blue and Light Taupe.
The Evidence : Birds, Circle, Grid Design, Pen Work and Stamps.
The Testimony : I used Inspiration Word: Family. 
It said,"Being a Family means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life no matter what."
 I used the paper from S.E.I - A Fair Day Collection. I used smaller photos to work with to match the sketch. I created layers so that I could put my photos in the middle. I used banners from Heidi Swapp. Since its transparent and I couldn't see the blue color, I colored the back of it with black acrylic paint. The title family was one of our chipboard. I colored it black and rubbed Inka Gold - Violet. I stamped the left side of the paper with Creative Embellishments - Distressed Crackle.
Thank you for stopping by and hope to see you again. Cheerio!! Hugs, Merry.
