Master's challenges the journey so far

Today I thought I would take some time to share with you my Master's Challenges so far.

For each issue of Scrapbooking Memories the year you are reigning master, each of the masters (10 in all) are given different product to work with each month from each of the sponsors of the competition.  Some are more challenging than others as it may be different product you wouldn't normally work with or a type of project that takes you out of your comfort zone (the latter not really a problem for me as I try my hand at everything anyway).  Here are the first 6!

January was Stampin' up. We were to create a single layout using a range of papers, ink pads, stamps and embellishments.  This what I came up with.
The next was Websters Papers, we were sent a range of paper as well as lots of embellishments to work with.  Yes this is me as a little girl :)
The third challenge from American Crafts has been one of my favourites as it really introduced me to working with Amy Tangerine's collections which are one of my favourites for my Project life.  It did take me out of my comfort zone as it was quite different from what I usually use to create my layouts but I really enjoyed the challenge.  We got SO much to play with from Alphas, to papers to flair, stamps and many other embellishments.  It was SUCH and awesome pack to play with.  We had to creat a layout and Card for this Challenge.  

 For Stamp It, we were given some fantastic 'background' type products to work with.  Stencil, Dylusions, colour me flowers and the most awesome background stamp set, all teamed up with white cardstock.  Although the bright pick dylusions spray threw me a little at first, it was really right up my ally with the challenge to create our own background.
 Chroma Arts spoiled us with some more paints, crackle medium and opal dust and asked us to create a canvas.  This one hangs proudly in our family room which is right next to my scrap area... So I couldn't go past the teal colour being my favourite.  I teamed it up with some of the new D'lites Spellbinders dies which I had so much fun with creating this in the main while we were travelling on our summer holiday.   I was fortunate enough to meet up with a great scrappy friend in Tiff Firth who invited me to attend a local crop night at Scrapworkz and that is where most of this canvas came together!
 The next challenge is Kaisercraft who gave us some of their not yet released collections to create two layouts with.  We got a few 12 x 12 pieces of cardstock, a mini paper pad and sticker sheet.  I got to work with the Remember Me collection, although I don't really have ANZAC type photos to work with, so doing what I do, I ignored the theme of the collection and just created some fun layouts.  Having only paper to pretty much work with the Spellbinders dies came in very handy once again as I tried as much to stay true to the pack I received.

 Still need to share my ACTUAL Master's projects which had me win the title - nothing like keeping you all hanging.  I will share them shortly :)  I wanted to wait until After Paperific Expo as I was having them on display there.

I'll be back in no time with another post, as I still have loads to share :)
