Craft Challenge #98 - Get Inspired - Entries Due May 1 - May 8

Winner Announced!

Our winner this month is... Cryssoleil!


Check out the blog announcement and her project thread here! Smiley



It's Time to Vote!
Scroll up to see the voting poll.
You must be logged in to vote.  One vote per member.
If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.



It's Time to Enter!
The entry period is May 1 - May 8, 2014.
To post your entry, please start a new topic for it here on this board.  Click NEW TOPIC on this board to post your entry! Smiley
Entries must be posted by May 8 11:59:59 PDT 2014.
If you are a new member, and cannot post images yet, please just post a direct link to your image(s) in your post.  A friendly neighborhood Moderator will come along and update your post to embed the image(s) for you.



Are you on Pinterest?  Have you pinned 5,023 projects that inspire you, yet you've only crafted projects based on two of them?  Well, this is the month to make those inspirations come to life! Smiley

Your challenge this month is to craft a project inspired by something you've pinned on Pinterest.  Not on Pinterest yet?  No worries!  It's free to join, so hop over there and create an account first.

You can pin and craft inspired by absolutely anything you want this month!  Jewelry, food, clothing, housewares... anything!  Your project should be inspired by your pin, so your pin doesn't necessarily have to be a handmade item.

To enter this month, please follow these steps:
  • Follow us on Pinterest, so we can follow you, too! Smiley  http://www.pinterest.com/craftsterorg/
  • If you haven't already done so, pin an inspiration (from anywhere on the internet!) to a public Pinterest board of yours.
  • Craft a project based on your inspiration!
  • In your entry thread, include a link to your inspirational pin to give it credit!

Additional Rules and Details:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Apr 8 - May 8 2014) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • On May 1 2014, there will be a special folder created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of May 1 to May 8 11:59:59 PDT 2014.  No sooner.  No later.  Do not post your project elsewhere on Craftster.
  • Voting will happen from May 9 - May 18 2014.
  • 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.  Kittykill 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:

Please be sure to include a link to your pin in your challenge entry! 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!

There are so so so many things I have pinned that I want to make.  It is hard to narrow it down.  But I think I have one that I really want to make... maybe two or three...

But I take it we can only enter one item for the challenge?

I made something that I had on my Pinterest for quite some time! It is a tutorial, but I didn't follow that (of course  Roll Eyes ) because I'm just too lazy to carefully read it all.. Haha!

Now I must not forget to post it on time  Tongue

I think it is cute  Cheesy (hard to not share it with you already!!)

I'm working on one item that draws inspiration from quite a few pins. The pins are more references than actual tutorials though. Does that count?

Yes! It doesn't have to be exactly what you pinned. You should be inspired by one or more pins. And your pin doesn't have to be a handmade item either.
I'm not Sweets of course, but I'm certain this is right!  Cheesy

Mine was acutally a tutorial, not that I used it though  Roll Eyes

in a minor miracle I have no swaps on the go and a weekend with some crafting time ahead, so bring it on challenge.  I happen to have something I want to try, and the first step is a stop at the beach for a couple good rocks!
