Craft Challenge #65 Text-tacular! - Due Aug 1 - 8

Winner Announced!

Congrats to our winner, mouseatethekitty for her entry titled, "Fun Alphabet Letter Magnets"!

Check out her full project thread here:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=387406.0

08/02/11 Time to enter!

To enter, post your project as a NEW TOPIC on this board:


Your challenge this month is to feature the one and only, the fabulous, the amazing...text!  Fonts of all shapes and sizes are to be honored in this craft challenge.  Your entry can utilize any craft materials and techniques of your choosing, as long as the star of the show is text.  You might choose to feature a witty quote, your name, a song lyric, a poem or maybe you'll even embroider an entire book! Shocked

Along with your entry, please be sure to give credit to the font that you've chosen to feature in your project.  If it's a custom-created font by you, that's okay, too!  Give credit to yourself! Kiss

Craftsters have previously created some jaw-dropping text-tacular creations to inspire us!
Seussical Stitching
Snoopy for President
Alice in Wonderland invitations
Felt name book


  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Jul 11 - Aug 8, 2011).  Projects created before this timeframe will not be removed from the entry board, but they will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Post your craft during the period of Aug 1 -Aug 8 2011.  No sooner.  No later.  On Aug 1 2011 there will be a special folder created for entries.
  • Voting will happen from Aug 9 - 16 2011.
  • Enter only ONE project.  Your entry can have multiple components to it.


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


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!

What incredibly fortuitous timing! I just thought of an awesome text based craft not two days ago. Now, hopefully I can finish it on time for the challenge...

I know I have said this before - but I really think this is one challenge I'm going to do.  In fact... I think I'm going to start this weekend.  It's going to take a long time to make what I am thinking of making but it's going to be so cool if I can pull it off!!

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!

Maybe if I can get a camera that works by then I'm already sad about missing the last challenge.
