Over the weekend, I had some free time, to do a page just for fun. I still have so many pages to reveal for upcoming DT work, but I usually try to get my layouts done all at one time or as many as I can at a time when I am doing DT pages. So my time for being able to play along with challenges, fluctuates between my DT work and downtime. But I was really excited to get back into the Case File challenges at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration and for this layout, I played along with Case File #27. And, I decided to make the most of this layout, by incorporating a second challenge from Club CK. The July/August Issue Challenge #1, is using die cuts on your layout. This is one of my favorite things right now...and my Cricut Expression has been a busy little bee lately!!
For this Case File, I worked with leaves/branches (which are some of the CSI Coordinates, created by Michele Singh) and clouds. I documented about the outdoors, for the Testimony portion of the Case File and I loved working with this color scheme!
I went a little crazy with the die cuts!! :) I cut the triangle shapes to create the arrow/chevron pattern in the center of my page and also used the negative cut for the word "bike". And I knew I wanted a large bicycle die cut, so I used a bike silhouette image and then traced around it, once I adhered it to the layout.
There is still time to play along with both of these challenges, so I hope you will come check them out!!
