1  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenges / Craft Challenge #104 - DIY Halloween Costumes 2014, Due Nov 3 - 10 2014 on: October 08, 2014 07:26:54 AM
Craft Challenge #104 - DIY Halloween Costumes 2014, Due Nov 3 - 10 2014

October is here and we're ready to see all of the crafty costumes!  Time to showcase all of those amazingly creative DIY Halloween costumes of this season.  Each year, we've had the pleasure of viewing absolutely spectacular handcrafted costumes.  And now we want to see yours!

Once the challenge is completed, we'll move all of the entries to the Halloween board, so they can be easily accessed for years to come!

Here are a few specifics for this challenge:
  • The costume you enter must have some handmade components.
  • It must be a costume you are making for this year (Halloween 2014), and not photos of a costume from past years.
  • If you are making a costume for someone else, and not for yourself to wear, it's okay enter it, but just remember that you can only have one entry in this contest.
  • If you are making a set of costumes for multiple people that all go together via a common theme, you can enter them together as one entry.

Rules:

  • Enter costumes crafted for Halloween 2014 only.  Projects created before this timeframe will not be removed from the entry board, but they will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project (Although your entry can have multiple components to it).
  • Post your craft during the period of Nov 3 - Nov 10 2014. No sooner.  No later.  On Nov 3, there will be a special folder created for entries.
  • Voting will happen from Nov 11 - Nov 18 2014.
  • The winner will be officially announced on our first business Monday of the next month -- in our December newsletter, on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  We will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement, to get your prize package information.
  • If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.

Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, has never been posted on Craftster or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project.

Prizes:

At the end, I'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner will get...

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) and this Craftster prize (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):
Any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

It's been awhile since we've played with our food!  Your challenge this month is to whip of your favorite personal recipe and share it with us!

Unfortunately, since we cannot raid your kitchens and taste your delicious project, your entry must include at least two photos -- one in progress photo and one completed project photo.  These two photos are the minimum requirement.  Please feel free to include more! Smiley  Your entry must also include your full recipe.  Please do not post a partial recipe and then link to an outside source for the remaining instructions.

Please be sure the recipe is your own creation.  Do not copy/post published recipes.  If your recipe was originally inspired by another recipe, please give credit to it.

What can you make?  Anything edible!  Make your favorite drink.  Whip up a tasty dessert!  How about a savory entree?  Or even a wedding cake?  Want to make a life size sculpture of yourself in homemade modeling chocolate?  Go for it.  Just be sure to post the recipe for the chocolate and your two photos (one in progress and one complete).

Additional Rules and Details:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Sept 1 2014 - Oct 8 2014) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • On Oct 1 2014, there will be a special folder created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of Oct 1 to Oct 8 11:59:59 PDT 2012.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from Oct 9 - 16.

8  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Faux Chalkboard Sign on: August 21, 2014 01:21:17 PM
So simple, it's hard to call it a project! Cheesy  Alas, here it is. Smiley

I designed it in Photoshop, printed and used spray adhesive to attach it to the back of one of his wooden puzzles.

Since spray adhesive is reposition-able, I already peeled it off and put it in a scrapbook for this year. Smiley


If anyone needs or wants the names of the (free) fonts, just holler! Smiley

We're bringing back one of our most popular craft challenges -- SWAP & SHARE!

This month, you don't actually have to craft anything right now!  For this craft challenge, we want to encourage you to share a project that you've never posted a thread for previously.  The crafty kicker -- it has to be a project that you've sent in a Craftster Craft Swap.  Over time, so many amazing projects get buried in the Swap Galleries.  Let's expose them!! Smiley

Your project can be any medium, technique, size or shape you desire, as long as you sent it for an organized Craftster Craft Swap! Smiley  The project must not already have its own Completed Project thread.  It's totally okay if it was already shared within a Swap Gallery, though!

When the challenge is complete, we'll tag and move all of the projects to their proper category boards. Smiley

For this unique challenge, the requirements are bit more specific than usual, so be sure to read them very carefully:
  • Post your project on the entry board from (Sep 1 - Sep 8, 2014) only.  Your project must be something you crafted and sent for an organized Craftster Craft Swap.  It cannot be something made for a personal swap or swap on another site.  It can be a project you sent as an angel package for a Craftster Craft Swap, though. Smiley
  • In your entry thread, share the title and link to the swap for which you crafted the project.  Feel free to give a little shout out to your partner in your thread, too! Smiley
  • Share at least one photo of your project, but more are always encouraged.  If you are entering your project with photos your recipient captured, please privately contact and ask for their permission to use their photos.

Additional Rules and Details:

  • On September 1, 2014, there will be a special folder created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of Sep 1 - Sep 8 11:59:59 PDT 2014.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from Sep 9 - Sep 16 2014.
  • The winner will be officially announced on the first business Monday of the next month -- in our October newsletter, on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  We will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement, to get your prize package information.
  • Enter only ONE project.  Your entry can have multiple components to it.
  • If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.

Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, has never been posted on Craftster, or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project. Smiley

Prizes:

At the end, I'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner (US or non-US) will get:

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) and a prize from us at Craftster.org -- any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!
