#JulyBONUS Challenge

This pop-up challenge has TWO sketches with example completed layouts using the You-Pick-It Bundles!

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, Aug. 1, at 11:59pm CT (Australia: 2 Aug. at 2:59pm AET) with hashtag #JulyBONUS1 and/or #JulyBONUS2 for the chance to win a prize. We’ll have 6 lucky winners (3 winners per sketch!) for this challenge — woohoo! PLUS, 2 bonus winners who complete the challenge using You-Pick-It products.
  4. Winners will be announced in the Virtual Crop Facebook Group on Aug. 5 at noon CT.

And what can you win?

Winners will get to pick THEIR CHOICE of 1 Paper Pack + 1 Embellishment Pack + 1 Sticker Pack!

NOTE: The Prize Pack will be awarded to three participants for each sketch. PLUS, 2 bonus winners who complete the challenge using You-Pick-It products. 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 Thursday, Aug. 5, at noon CT.

Instructions for #JulyBONUS1

Layout by Krislyn Mattei – CM Independent Advisor

To create this layout you will need:

Step 1: Use a piece of sunshine yellow suns paper as the base for this layout. Using the 12-inch Trimmer, cut out the inside of this sheet leaving a 1/2″ border all the way around. (Save the remaining paper for Step 3.) Cut a piece of plaid paper to 11-3/4″ x 11-3/4″ and mount on the base piece.

Step 2: Choose the backyard scene laser-cut paper. Crop three photos to fit the mats. For the round mat, crop your photo using the inside of the large Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Red Blade. Adhere photos behind the laser-cut paper and mount on the layout.

Step 3: Using the Walk in the Park Border Punch, punch a border from sunshine yellow suns paper. Trim to 6-1/4″ x 2″ and adhere to the laser-cut paper, just beneath the top photo. Punch another border, trim to 6-1/4″ x 2-1/2″ and adhere to the laser-cut paper, just beneath the bottom photo. Cut a 6-1/4″ x 3/4″ strip of fresh flowers paper and adhere just below it.

Step 4: Journal as desired.

For the circle mat, use the outside of the small Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Red Blade. Mount on the layout.

Step 3: Cut a 4-3/8″ x 5-3/8″ mat from pumpkin orange gingham paper and mount a 4″ x 5″ photo on top. Adhere to the layout as shown.
