Who will be named Master Crafter!?

Good morning all! Happy Saturday and National Card Making Day!


Hope you will check out each project and comment for them!! If you would like to Vote for my project, I am number     49   !!

Have you heard about the Master Crafter Challenge? Sarah Hamer, Pink by Design, correlated with some amazing sponsors and provided product for 100 participants to work with and create a project, and the Winner to be named Master Crafter!

The Products contained were:
Scissor Mouse sponsored by
DCWV Rockstar mat stack sponsored by
DCWV Deals
Cotton Bag Sponsored by
State line Bag Co.
1/2 sheet of Rhinestones sponsored by
Queen & Co.
Sentiment stamp sponsored by
Pink by Design
Assorted Buttons
I made a frame with my products - I hope you like it!! Voting Starts soon, so don't forget to cast your vote!!



I wanted the result to be darker, so after it dried, I coated it with Brown Ink.
I used the spray adhesive to adhere the paper to the frame, and cut with mouse scisors on my score board. I used the exacto knife for the inner of the frame and folded tightly around all of the edges, and used the scraper to adhere tightly.

I used the Sack as a Hot Air Balloon. I did do some folding on the corners, and bottom, then used Stampin up eyelets for the String. The String on the Hot Air Balloon and the Buttons are the remmnants from the bag.

 I covered the Basket in Burlap and used the Pink by Design Sentiment on the Basket Lip.

I used the DCWV Rock Star Card Stock on the Left Side of the Frame and distressed, and Doubled up the Assortment of buttons and tied of with a peice of the Bag Tie.

I used the QueenCO Bling to Embellish the Sentiment SOAR - from Jellybean Soup

I hope that you liked my project! I really wanted to think outside of the box on how to use the main product - the bag. Would love to hear from you! If you haven't linked up your project yet, Please do so, so the voting can begin!!
