Challenge 5- Creative Memories Virtual Crop

What a fabulous day this has been.

Together, we have created hundreds of projects to be added to our scrapbooks with memories that will last a lifetime.

We, here at Creative Memories Home Office thank you for being here with us today. Please make sure to mark the dates for the rest of the 2017 Virtual Crops on your calendars.  We LOVE having a FULL house here.

Without any further delay……

The final challenge.

Challenge:  Using the sketch as inspiration, create a layout with a custom background.  Share a photo on the Facebook Event page to qualify for the prize.


Use hashtag #CMVirtualCrop.


Kelly shows us how to create a custom background by weaving strips of paper.  Kelly chose paper colours that complimented her photos. Because of the patterned paper in the strips, it works best on a plain background. She decided her photos would sit angled to show off a little more of the woven paper behind. Bright coloured woven paper would look amazing on a black or dark background.

  1. Great day of virtual crop! Just three of us in attendance but over 40 finished pages! A very successful day! “Make and take” was a “throw back” page spread using the always wonderful wonderful Vintage Paper pack and embellishments.
