1  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenges / Craft Challenge #108 - Live Events - Entries Due May 1 - May 10 on: April 06, 2015 09:01:57 PM
Craft Challenge #108 - Live Events - Entries Due May 1 - May 10


This month, thanks to Ticketmaster, we're showing our love for live events from concerts, to Broadway shows, and more!  Your mission this month is to craft a project that shows major love to one of your favorite live events or productions!  Concerts, sporting events, family entertainment, music festivals, arts & theatre, you name it!  You can use any crafting mediums of your choosing as long as your project features or pays homage to a live, ticketed event of some sort! Smiley

Maybe your project will actually incorporate that old ticket from the very first play you ever attended.  Or maybe you'll create a project from scratch such as an awesome concert ticket embroidery pillow! Grin  Perhaps you could create the perfect music festival headband, bag or other accessories.  You could even create an epic quilt from all of those concert tshirts you've been hoarding over the years. Wink

Ticketmaster has provided a bundle of prizes for the challenge this month!  The first and second place winners will be selected by our community voting poll here on Craftster.  The third place winner will be selected by a panel of judges at TicketmasterOh!  And a little birdie told us that the panel of judges would love to see some sort of nod to barcodes, locks, etc. (security-related concepts) included in the winning project.  How cool would it be to add a secret barcode to your project? Grin  Wonder what it would say!

Here are just a few Craftster projects that might inspire you for this challenge! Kiss
Ticket Stub Shadowbox Collection by Chocolate_Jo
Transformed Concert Tshirt by FoxyBlue
Baseball Coin Purse by Calabaza
Concert Tshirt Quilt by ZidishaLuxe

Additional Rules and Details:

  • Entries open to US and Canada.
  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Apr 6 2015 - May 10 2015) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • On May 1, 2015, there will be a special folder created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of May 1 - May 10 11:59:59 PDT 2015.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from May 11 - May 18 2015.
  • The winner will be officially announced on the first business Monday of the next month (in our June newsletter), on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  Ticketmaster will also feature the winners on their blog, Twitter and Facebook!  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, we'll set up a poll right here and the winners (US or Canada) will recieve:

Ticketmaster prizing:
(1) Grand prize, first place winner (voted by Craftster community):  $250 Ticketmaster gift card
(2) Second place winner (voted by Craftster community):  $150 Ticketmaster gift card
(3) Third place winner (voted by Ticketmaster):  $100 Ticketmaster gift card

Gift cards can be used to purchase events on Ticketmaster.com / Ticketmaster.ca.  Ticketmaster will also feature the winners on their blog, Twitter and Facebook!

As well as:
(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!

5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Valentine Cards for Teachers and Friends on: February 13, 2015 06:38:15 AM
So fun!  I let baby.sweets4ever choose the free printable and then we went to town on them. He drew and doodled pictures and notes on the back of each, too.

Our school mascot is a panda, so he made these for teachers and staff.


He made these for friends. Mazes are from Oriental Trading and we adhered them with glue dots.

It's time to bring new life to an old object!  This month, we're repurposing bottles.  You can choose any shape, size or type of bottle you want as long as the bottle is the star of the show.  It might be a bottle you already have in your stash, or it might be a bottle you find while out and about this month.  Your choice.

In your project, you can use as many other materials as you'd like, as long as you use at least one bottle in your project.  You can include a bottle cap, if you want, but you must also use a bottle.  Pill bottle, soda bottle, wine bottle Wink, shampoo bottle, water bottle... and more!  So many options.

Here are some Craftster projects that might inspire you! Kiss
Cross Stitch in a Bottle
Slumped Bottle Cheese Tray
Decorated Bottle
I Spy Bottle Toy
Bottle Bowl

Let's bring in the New Year with our annual gingerbread house contest!  Each year, we've had so much fun seeing your gingerbread creations.  If this is your first year on Craftster, be sure to check out our previous years:

So, once again, it's time to get out those mixing bowls and get crafting!  Your challenge this month is to make and decorate a gingerbread house.  Any type of house is permitted (cottage, castle, etc.) as long as it has walls and a roof of gingerbread.  Your entry must be made of edible parts, but it's not limited to sweets only.  The only non-edible parts allowed are a base, lighting and/or electrical components.  No gingerbread house kits for this challenge.  No size restraints -- miniature to life-size houses are tasty and welcome for this challenge.

Additional Rules and Details:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Dec 4 2014 - Jan 8 2015 Jan 12 2015) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • On Jan 1 2014, there will be a special folder created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of Jan 1 to Jan 8 Jan 12 (extended!! Smiley ) 11:59:59 PDT 2015.  No sooner.  No later.
