January Completed Album Challenge PLUS A Creative Memories-Themed Scrapbook Layout

In 2022, we introduced the Completed Album Challenge… and we’re continuing the awesomeness (and the satisfaction of finishing an album!) into 2023! Let this challenge be a part of your new year’s resolution to scrapbook more, get those photos off your phone or digital camera and to put the final finishing touch on whatever album you’re piecing together for yourself or as a gift!

To kickstart this goal, today we have the first Completed Album Challenge of the year going on in the Virtual Crop Facebook Group! If you completed an album this month (does not need to be from start to finish in January, just completed in January), 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 #CompletedJan2023 for the chance to win!

NOTE: For this January challenge, you can share ANY album(s) that you finished in January 2023 AND any album(s) you completed throughout 2022 — even ones you already posted! Why? Because it’s fun to start the year off strong and see everything that we accomplished together last year! From February on out, you’ll want to show a newly completed album that you finished during the month to be eligible to win.

And to add to this crop-tastic challenge, take on this Creative Memories-themed scrapbook layout that features the latest (and supremely scrappy) Scrap Happy 2 collection!
