Be A Grade Above The Rest: Take On The #2022AugustBONUS Challenge

Here’s a fun assignment for you: Take on the #2022AugustBONUS challenge happening now in the Virtual Crop Facebook Group! It won’t feel like homework, because (A), it’s super fun, and (B), you may walk away a winner (talk about extra credit… or prize pack, that is!). Take a look at the details and due date below, as well as the bright delight that inspired this challenge!

Layout by Noreen Smith – Product Development Creative Manager

To create this layout you will need:

Step 1: Use the yellow toy mini-figures building blocks paper as the base.

Step 2: Using the 12-inch Trimmer, cut five 1″ x 12″ strips and two 1/2″ x 12″ strips from various designer and building blocks papers. Adhere two 1″ x 12″ strips and one 1/2″ x 12″ strips horizontally along top and bottom edges of base page. Adhere remaining 1″ x 12″ strip vertically along left-hand edge of base page.

Step 3: Using the 12-inch Trimmer or All-Purpose Scissors, cut seven 1″ x 2″ blocks from the multi-hued tessellated building blocks paper. Use Foam Squares to mount blocks in zigzag pattern over the edge of the vertical 1″ x 12″ paper strip.

Step 4: Using the 12-inch Trimmer, cut one 4″ x 4″ and one 4″ x 6″ photo mats from designer papers. Mount one 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ photo and one 3-3/4″ x 5-3/4″ photos on mats. Arrange between paper strips and adhere.

Step 5: Add embellishments and stickers in clusters as shown or as desired, using Foam Squares for added dimension. Cut a small piece from one of the lined tag embellishments and tuck under 4″ x 6″ photo. Journal on the tag with a Dual-Tip Pen.

  1. Love the layout. Could you please list instructions all together and then pictures at the end or beginning. That would make it easier to print instructions, so we don’t have to print so many pages. TY

  2. I copy and paste image(s) & instructions into a Word document in the order I prefer and easily keep the printing to one page. I also make extra notes for myself.
