#SunFunBONUS Challenge

This pop-up challenge has not one, but TWO sketches with example completed layouts using the Fringe Border Punch and the Fun in the Sun Texture Paper Pack!

How to Participate:

  1. Review the two sketches below in this post and/or in the Virtual Crop Facebook Group. (You can also refer to the step-by-step instructions below if you’d prefer to do it that way instead of following the sketch!)
  2. Create the layout(s) using whatever products you have on-hand; you do not need to earn the free bundles to be eligible to win (but if you earn them, why not use them?!). Complete as many challenges as you wish, but the more you complete, the more chances you have to win!
  3. Snap a picture of your finished project(s) and post it in the Virtual Crop Facebook Group by Sunday, June 6, at 11:59pm CT (Australia: 7 June at 2:59pm AET) with hashtag #SunFunBONUS1 and/or #SunFunBONUS2 for the chance to win a prize. We’ll have 6 lucky winners (3 winners per sketch!) for this challenge — woohoo!
  4. Winners will be announced in the Virtual Crop Facebook Group on June 9 at noon CT.

And what can you win?

NOTE: The Prize Pack will be awarded to three participants for each sketch. We will award the prizes randomly, but to win, it must be evident you used the sketch we provided as inspiration to create a project using predominantly Creative Memories products. Prize winners will be announced on Wednesday, June 9, at noon CT.

Take a closer look at the papers in the Fun in the Sun Texture Paper Pack!

Remember, you have until Sunday, June 6, at 11:59pm CT (Australia: 7 June at 2:59pm AET) to complete your layout(s) and post them in the Virtual Crop Facebook Group (with hashtag #SunFunBONUS1 and/or #SunFunBONUS2) to be eligible to be one of the lucky winners!

To create this layout you will need:

Step 1: Use a piece of terrazzo paper as the base for this layout.

Step 2: Cut an 11″ x 9-1/2″ piece of terracotta red Corinthians lettering paper and adhere it to the layout, flush with the left edge.

Step 3: Cut a 5″ x 10-1/2″ piece of navy oval stripes paper. Punch a fringe along one short end to create the base for the fringed piece. Punch a fringe along the edges of six 5″ wide pieces of paper. Tip: Punch every other piece beginning at a slightly different spot (about 1/16″) to stagger the fringe. Trim each to 5″ x 2-1/4″ once punched. Layer them, fringe side down, using the photo as a guide.

Step 4: Cut a 5″ x 6-1/4″ piece of white vintage florals paper. Fringe both short sides. Adhere to the fringed piece as shown. Punch one more 5″ wide strip from lace veil paper and tuck it under the uppermost fringe piece, fringe-side up. Adhere the entire fringed piece to the layout. Cut the “So happy because:” mat to 4-1/2″ x 3″, mount it on a 4-3/4″ x 3-1/4″ piece of polka dot paper and adhere it to the white vintage florals area.

Step 5: Mount a 4″ x 6″ photo and a 4″ x 4″ photo on the layout. Using the inside of the largest Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Blue Blade, cut a photo and mount it on the layout as shown.

Step 6: Add stickers, popping some up with Foam Squares for added dimension.

Step 7: Journal as desired.

So, which of these challenges will YOU be trying out?! Tell us in the comments below!

    1. Anna, Do you have the very old original size page protectors? There was a size chance in the 12×12 pages and protectors that happened back around 2007. If you try to put an “Original 12×12” page protector on a “True 12×12″ (the current size,) the original 12×12 page protector will be about .25” too narrow for the newer true 12×12 page. – Susan

  1. Janet I would, but my mom is quickly declining. That weekend her brother will be in town from Texas and I need to be with the family. Sorry
