Flag_Japan Challenge #2:

  1. Create a layout following the sketch below.
  2. Take a photo of your completed project.
  3. Post the photo of your completed page, spread, border or card to the NSD Worldwide Virtual Crop Facebook Event Page AND add #CM1, #CM2, #CM3, etc., to the caption/comments. You will add the hashtag that matches the challenge that you are submitting. No words needed, just stick to the hashtag CM with numbers as this is a bilingual event! Feel free to use other hashtags as well, such as #NSDWWVC2020 or #CreativeMemories, but BE SURE to include #CM1, #CM2, etc., so we can find your post. For Instagram users, you will need to add #NSDWWVC2020 AND #CM1, #CM2, etc., so your post can be found.
  4. You have the entire event to submit all 12 challenges (some will post while you are sleeping).

  1. What if I combined the photo placement on the sketch with the borders and corners on the samples? I didn’t see the error until after I posted my layout.

  2. A great idea– one page of paper. And an easy idea to teach with the new trimmer
    Many thanks
