The first round of the Challenge was to create a card in 25 minutes using the mystery products provided. The mystery package included: white cardstock, Kraft cardstock, a roll of Snazzy tape, a sheet of Sili-Craftz and....a pop can tab.
Here's the card I made:
the Snazzy tape around the white cardstock, used a punch to cut the heart shape from the Sili-Craftz sheet, tucked the pop tab behind it and attached it with a brad, and cut the sentiment out of the Snazzy tape using the Expression2. A little Megan Elizabeth Ink Edgerz in Limelight and some more brads and I was done.
Here are the other 3 entries:
blog, Shawn from Craftychics, and Carrie from Craft-e-Corner.
This round was a tie between my card and Abbey's. The tie-breaker judge selected my card as the winner for the first round. Carrie was the first participant "Cropped" from the competition.
The second round of the Competition was to create a scrapbook layout with a fall theme in one hour using the mystery supplies provided. We were given some fall themed scrapbook paper, 2 sheets of Paperlayerz by Megan Elizabeth, a rhinestone sheet...and a Coca-cola can. This time I came in second place. My layout is below on the left. The cute one on the right is Shawn's from CraftyChics:
Abbey won the round with this layout:
Since Shawn came in 3rd place, she was the next one "Cropped". It was down to just Abbey and I for the home decor themed third round.
We were given a shadow box, some Christmas themed paper, Candi's, puzzle pieces, gold thread, Megan Elizabeth Alpha Stickerz, bubble wrap and only one hour.
Here's my Christmas themed shadow box:
Close To My Heart Artiste cartridge. I made the tree by folding strips of paper and attaching them one on top of each other. The puzzle pieces are stacked under the tree to give it a little height.
Here's Abbey's very clever project:
The vote for the third round went in my favor and I was named winner of the "Pro" Cropped Challenge! What an exciting and totally fun event! I hope to be invited back for the next one so I can defend my title :)
