August 2014 Grab Bag and Bonus Challenge

August is a long month so here at Mema's Crafts we're giving away five prizes (2 winners from monthly challenge and 3 winners for the bonus and grab bag challenge). It took me a while to decide how this challenge would work, but here it is:

1.  A winner is drawn randomly; 
2.  The winner's random number is the second winner and;
3.  Lastly a DT member will win a small token based on votes 
Here are the rules for this challenge:

1. Be a follower of Mema's Crafts (as always)
2. Use the 1st Mr Linky to enter your name followed by
    a random number in the range of 1 - 210
3. Come back 8/3 and Vote for the DT using 2nd Mr Linky (hopefully its working)
4. We'd appreciate a comment


         !GRAB BAG ITEMS!
* We R Memory Makers "Envelope Punch Board
* The New Spectrum Noir "Essentials" Pack
*Digi Image of Choice from Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet
*Paper Kit Collection "Simple Stories"
*Paper Kit Collection "Teresa Collins"

For the bonus challenge I provided my M&M Girls DT a few random products and instructions to use in their creation.  Below are the details. Look them over and then vote on your favorite DT project. You can only vote once.

Princess - was given a raw and dusty Paper Mache Book Box and a paper pad. This is her altered creation that holds a mini album.  More info and additional photos can be found on her blog.

Judith - was provided two standard sized embossing folders and was asked to create a card using the embossing folder as the focal point.  Her creation brings embossing and inking together in a fun colorful way.
I'm sure she'll have more techniques to share in the future using embossing folders.

Lisa - was asked to decorate her name by spelling it out using Paper Mache alphabet and Prima paper.
I was so inspired by the results I decided to decorate my name to hang in my craft-room.

Penny Rae - was given a set of border/edge punchers and told to use these to create anything but a card.  She opted to use the edgers to bind the pages of a mini album she was constructing for two very special men. Find out more about how she used these edgers to create this binding technique by visiting her blog.

Donna - was given three tags; White, Creme and Kraft and was asked to decorate them and to include a sentiment.  She really rocked these tags...I wouldn't mind having one for myself.

So there you have our entries. Don't forget to enter your name followed by a number between 1 and 210. Vote on your favorite DT project and leave a comment.

What fun! Thank you - I just voted! I also played along in your regular challenge. I see that some have entered the bonus challenge more than once - is it one entry only? Thank you!

Dr Sonia S V said...

Dear Lesia so sweet of you to write and tell me about the only one entry clause
Actually I realised my mistake as soon as I linked and tried to delete one entry but couldnt!! Appreciate you writing to me. Love your work and your site
PS: tried emailing you but
repeatedly got a failure notice

Beth F. said...

This is such a fun idea! The DT really had wonderful projects!

Gail said...

Lesia, it's only 7am here and I'm still sleepy eyed and my brain isn't fully engaged. I forgot to put my number after my name. Can you please delete #12 and I will resubmit my name and fav number? Thanks much. Hugs, Gail L

Gail said...

Well, the Link won't let me add my name a second time so you can delete #12 and I could correct the fact I didn't put a # next to my name. Sigh. Can you please insert it? I'd like #186 please.

What a fun DT challenge. They are all very nice, but my personal fav is Princess's

I really liked the color and design of Princess' entry. The rest were beautiful, however her's attracted my eye first.
