MasterCrafter Challenge

Update:  10/3/12

We are so close to linking up!! Are you excited?  Remember that the person with the most votes will get to choose their prize from the list of prizes and then the others will be drawn randomly. 🙂  So everyone, has a chance to win!!

Remember: Voting will begin at 12:01 am on the 4th as well, and will last for one week, until October 11, 2012 at 12:02 am CST.


Update 9/18/12
You may post any pictures on your own blog at any time you want- but, we will not be linking up til October 4th 🙂


Update 9/14/12

As people are already getting their boxes- I’d like to give a list of things that should have been in your box along with a few instructions.

– Scissor Mouse sponsored by Westcott 

-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

– 2 Assorted Buttons (A couple of people have reported these missing since the boxes were packed so full, they could have slipped out of the bulging seam.)  Please just replace them with 2 of your own assorted buttons- if this happens to you.

Incorporate as much from the box as possible– realizing that one thing is a tool, and may not be used as part of the project, but used to make the project.  You may use other things from your stash to make your project. Think outside of the box, and have fun!

Please take note of the dates below- and I can’t wait to see your projects linked up on October 4, 2012.

Please remember, all items were sponsored by the companies, and they were super sweet to play along with us.  Also, let’s try to keep a positive attitude- because it will determine whether or not we will do this again in the future 🙂



Please note the changed dates below:

After you get your box, then you start crafting. On October 4th at 12:01 am CST , I will provide a Inlinkz on this page, for all participants to link up their projects. We can’t link up sooner, because I want everyone to have the same amount of time.
Voting will begin at 12:01 am on the 4th as well, and will last for one week, until October 11, 2012 at 12:02 am CST.
Prizes will be announced Friday, October 12th, 2012. 

****Please Note: This event is sold out- (it sold out in less than 10 hours and most of those were sleeping hours) but, we still need you to help us with the voting. 🙂 If all goes well, I’d love to plan another MasterCrafter event in the future! I am excited for everyone to get their Secret Box and to see what they make!! :)*****

I have something SUPER exciting planned for you!! It’s going to be a BLAST and I know you are not going to want to miss it!

MASTERCRAFTER is a FUN Crafting Challenge, for 100 of my friends to participate in. You will receive a SECRET box of goodies retailing over $20 to use in the challenge. You will be allowed to use any items from your own stash- but, you must use the ones in the SECRET box, to be named MASTERCRAFTER!

The best part is there are…

Hundreds and Hundreds of Dollars worth of prizes up for Grabs like…

But, you can’t win any of the prizes unless you sign up!

So, how do you sign up? All you have to do is pay for the shipping & handling of your box, and it will get sent out to you.


I don’t even have to pay for the SECRET BOX???!!

Nope….just s&h- the companies have sweetly sponsored the items in the SECRET box.

There are only 100 spots, and they need to be filled by September 7 when I will start the shipping! But, I don’t think those 100 spots will last until September 7th.

After you get your box, then you start crafting. On September 20th at 12:01 am CST , I will provide a Inlinkz on this page, for all participants to link up their projects. We can’t link up sooner, because I want everyone to have the same amount of time.

Voting will begin at 12:01 am on the 20th as well, and will last for one week, until September 27, 2012 at 12:02 am.

Prizes will be announced Friday, September 28th, 2012. The one with the most votes, will be declared the MasterCrafter and will have a special button to display on their blog as well as a real button to wear!

So are you ready to be the MasterCrafter?


PS. Tell your friends about this so they can come play too!!


When signing up- please only pay for the cheapest shipping choice 🙂

**If you are in Canada- please order no later than Sept. 1 or we will not be able to get your order to you in time.

** You do not need a blog to sign up.

** The MasterCrafter will take first pick of the prizes, and all others will be drawn randomly

**We will not be able to replace lost or damaged boxes, due to time limitations and limited quantities of contents.

  1. Sarah, this sounds amazing!! I just signed up. I used my dad’s Paypal account to get the box. I wasn’t sure how much to pay for the shipping. Did I do it right? I guess you will let me know if I need to add more for shipping when you see my order. His name is Larry Womack. I am so excited to do this!!!!


  2. This is going to be so much fun!! I can’t wait!! Love this idea… can’t wait to see what’s in the mystery box to get the ideas flowing!!

  3. I was so excited to hear what the announcement was, and now I’m super excited to see what’s in the box! I love how your challenges really get me thinking and CRAFTING!

  4. Super excited, just signed up, this is the first challenge I have ever done & I can’t wait to see what I get in my box & what everyone creates. God bless

  5. This sounds like it will be a lot of fun. Cannot wait to see the goodies we will have to work with. Thanks for another opportunity to craft and share with our fellow crafters.

  6. Dang everything was AWE-some but I just have to say that that Scissor Mouse…… Genius!!! I need to get another 4 (2 for the grands that are already old enough to use it and 2 for the younger ones that will become old enough to use it) so there is no fighting. Gonna need to do a little research to see if the blade is replaceable but if not I will just need to order a gross of them so we don’t run out. lol

    Thank you to all the sponsors and Sarah for organizing it all.

    Precious Hugs

  7. Sarah, hi! I received my Master Crafter package BUT it was missing both the buttons AND (sadly! ) the Pink by Design sentiment stamp! Which/what was it? I can substitute for the buttons, I know, but what of the sentiment stamp?. Please let me know. Thanks!


  8. I liked that it was the Rockstar mat from DCWV because it’s definitely NOT a print I would have bought myself! Hubby even said it too; it’ll be a challenge to use those colors and prints! I still haven’t figured out what I’m doing, but I do enjoy the challenge aspect of it!

    BTW, do we use the cotton bag with the project too?

  9. Hi, Sarah…I was making my “mastercraft” today(I’ve been sick, so I got a late start) and I don’t have a Pink By Design stamp in my box. Any suggestions?
