  1. I found this to be very confusing. Finally found the blog but she has precut and I don’t see where the measurements are listed.
    Not sure I will do another one if I have to guess

    1. Hi Suzanne – Sorry you found this to be confusing! We just provide a sketch and let you create with what you have, no exact measurements. Just use the sketch as a guide and see what you can come up with. I hope this helps and you continue to create some wonderful pages!

  2. I am totally lost. This is my first time to do something like this and I can not figure out what I am supposed to be doing? I have opened about 10 different pages just to get here. Sorry that I joined without asking some questions for guidance first. Maybe I will try again some other time.

    1. Robin, they will be posted here throughout the weekend. Just refresh the page every couple of hours. Also, at the bottom of this page, you can sign up to receive an email every time a new post is added to the blog.

  3. Let’s hope that’s not what Creative Memories is trying to do. I’d like to think that she was suggesting this method for people who want it placed quickly and perfectly. There’s some people who are clumsy like me who want things position perfectly but always end up positioning them crooked.

  4. I really like this technique. If you don’t want to waste paper, you can cut it down and piece together with the cardstock. Some like the extra layered look. It would be helpful to include the small box dimensions. Thank you!

  5. How do know deadline when submissions are due? I found link for when challenges will be posted and saw when the prizes will be rewarded. But how long do we have to complete the challenges? Thank you

  6. I like the concept, I just feel like it wastes paper. If you cut the 4 in piece off rather than fold it, you would still get the look, but also have the 4 inch piece to use else where.
