April Completed Album Challenge PLUS A Camping Scrapbook Layout

One, two, three, four — here is a challenge you’ll adore! That’s right, it’s the last week of the month, which means another Completed Album Challenge! And if you’re ready for this new adventure (as well as a camping scrapbook layout) to pitch a perfect, completed album — and then show us what you’ve got on the Virtual Crop Facebook Group — let your creative compass guide you this way! ⬇️

If you completed an album this month (does not need to be from start to finish in April, just completed in April), make a short video flipping through each of the pages in your newly completed album. Then, post your video in the Virtual Crop Facebook Group with the hashtag #CompletedApril2023 for the chance to win!

Here’s an example of what your Completed Album Challenge video could look like!

Step 1: Use a piece of Hot Fudge Solid Cardstock as the base for the layout.

Step 2: Using the piece of off-white arrows paper, measure 5” down from the upper-left corner leaving a pencil mark. Measure down 2” from the upper-right corner along the right edge of the paper. Use your 12-inch Trimmer to cut from pencil mark to pencil mark. Adhere the angled piece of off-white paper to the top edge of the cardstock.

Step 3: Using the Square Punch, punch five squares from a variety of papers. Use the 12-inch Trimmer to cut from corner to corner to create triangles. Adhere triangle pieces along the angled edge of the off-white paper.  Trim off any excess with scissors.

Step 4: Cut photo mats to measure (2) 6-1/4” x 4-1/4”, (1) 4-1/4” x 3-1/4” and (2) 3-1/4” x 4-1/4”. 

Step 5: Adhere photos that measure (2) 6” x 4”, (1) 4” x 3” and (2) 3” x 4”.

Step 6: Adhere mats/photos to the layout.

Step 7: Cut a variety of papers to fill in the corners — (4) 3-1/4” x 3-1/4” and (2) 5-1/2” x 3” . Use your scissors or 12-inch Trimmer to trim away the excess hanging off the edge of the cardstock.

Step 8: Adhere stickers, using Foam Squares on some for added dimension.

Step 9: Journal as desired.
