I followed kittykill's Craftster Quick video tutorial and whipped up this little guy (Fred) for kindergarten snack today.







2  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
3  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenges / Craft Challenge #102 - Swap & Share 3 - Entries Due Sep 1 - Sep 8 on: August 10, 2014 09:57:53 PM
Craft Challenge #102 - Swap & Share 3 - Entries Due Sep 1 - Sep 8

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!

First of all, did you know it existed?  Ours recently just put up the sign, but apparently some of the locations have been doing it for years.  You ask and they give you a 5-lb bag of used grounds to use in your garden (free).

Which brings me to my question -- then what? Smiley  I know they are to be used as a fertilizer, but what exactly is the process?  Layer?  Till them in?  Teach me, oh wise gardeners. Smiley

So you've been hoarding all of those scraps of fabric, bits and baubles, huh?  You always think, "I need to keep this!  I might be able to use it someday!"  Well, your time as come. Grin

Your challenge this month is to only use supplies from your stash!  It's the great STASH BUSTER! Grin  You cannot buy, borrow, scavenge or trade for anything to use in your project.  No new supplies.  No new tools.  You can only use what is currently in your stash (or home) at this very moment.

Your project can be any method, size or creation you desire as long as it's created entirely from supplies, tools and items you already own.

Who's up to the challenge?

Additional Rules and Details:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Jul 10 - Aug 10 2014) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.

Guess what, guys!  This month means we've officially hosted 100 Craftster Craft Challenges! Grin  We're celebrating this amazing milestone with a crazy fun challenge and a $100 Amazon Gift card in addition to a gift from one of our Craftster shops!  Your challenge this month is to craft with 100 of...something!  Jelly beans, buttons, marbles, sequins, you name it!  Your 100 like items are totally up to you.

You can use other materials and supplies on your project, but your 100 items should be the star of the show.  100.  No more.  No less!  Your items should be like items (all buttons, all beans, etc.), but they do not have to be the same color or size.  For example, buttons could be a myriad of colors, shapes and sizes, but they all need to be buttons.

Maybe you'll embed 100 dyed piece of rice into resin coasters.  Maybe you'll create a necklace with 100 beads.  Maybe you'll create a centerpiece with 100 smooth stones.  What will you do?  We're so excited to see!

Additional Rules and Details:
