Craft Challenge #101 - Stash Buster - Entries Due Aug 1 - Aug 10

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 Aug 1 - Aug 10, 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 Aug 10 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.



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.
  • On Aug 1 2014, there will be a special folder created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of Aug 1 to Aug 10 11:59:59 PDT 2014.  No sooner.  No later.  Do not post your project elsewhere on Craftster.
  • Voting will happen from Aug 11 - Aug 18 2014.
  • The winner will be officially announced on the first business Monday of the next month -- in our September 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!

Wow, that... doesn't limit it to much... do I use my bookcase and three trunks of yarn, my double-wide shelving unit crammed with fabric, the enormous bin of beads, or the closet full of craft kits?

Oooooh, or maybe one of those big cross stitch projects I'm sure I have all the supplies for (or at least enough to make decent substitutions....).  This might encourage me to actually finish one!

Hmmm, it might be fun to combine this challenge with art abandonment!

As my summer project is to clean and organinze my craft room, bedroom, and bathroom, I'm finding quite a bit of the "I had to save it" pieces, and have been sending them off to the reuse it centre, might be time to select a few and use them up for this challenge.

Looking for Sophia the first fabric and Frozen fabric (preferably flannel, but would settle for cotton) and Phoomph.  I'm in Canada and the companies are that I could order from charge $20-$30 shipping, so if anybody can find some and wants to swap/sell, I would be eternally greatfull.

This sounds like a lot of fun. I've been wanting to use all my little scrap bits of clay lately and I have a project in mind already.

I joined yesterday and am still learning the site and rules. Just to make sure, newbies can participate in these challenges right?
