Redemption had finished and FINAL CHALLENGE INFO!!!

Hello everyone!
Well Redemption Island has a winner and this crafter will be coming back to the mainland to join the other crafters in this season's FINAL challenge!!!
Here was the project that won redemption:
Beautiful Layout and perfect for today :)
So on to the last challenge...and boy is this gonna be a doozy ;)
Since it's the final before we crown our winner I will be issuing a few different projects to do! Because of this all projects will be DUE JUNE 21, 2013 by 11:59 pm. Any projects not turned in by then will not be able to be voted on! Make sure you turn in every project. 1 missing will get you torched immediately!!!
Ok on the projects...
#1- Same as last season.. I want to see a sign... Proclaiming you are the winner of Paper Craft Island Season #2. Make it out of whatever you'd like!
#2- A Layout... For Father's Day... and it must be all black, white, grey... Photos will be acceptable on this one! You do NOT have to have photos.. If you would rather just use photo mats to show where photos would go!
#3 - A Graduation Card. Could be a high school or a preschool...or anything else.. Doesn't matter.. BUT it must have ribbons on it somewhere!
#4- This you get to pick... Make ANYTHING to show WHY you are the best crafter here on the island!!!!
That's it.. (hehehe) You have basically over 3 weeks so these projects should be AWESOME!
Can't wait to see them!!!
I have a jury in place to vote for the winner this season!! They are a mix of people that have been on the Island with you as well as ones that have NOT been on the Island! :)
I figured this was the best way to prevent anyone from stacking the votes :)
Good luck to you all and I can't wait to see what you can do!!!! :)
Until then
Hugs from the Island ♥

Another crafter gets torched!

Good evening everyone! Sorry for the delay! It's been crazy hectic in my hut here lately! So lets get to it...
By a vote of 2-1 (immunity winner's vote does not count as there wasn't a tie!)
The crafter who will be leaving the main Island is...

We are sad to see #2 go...
She's going to redemption!
Her and the crafter who won the last battle will now battle it out head to head to see who can survive and come back to Island in our finals!
So for these 2 the challenge this week (due Saturday (May 25) night by 11:59 pm EASTERN)
is simply this...
With memorial day coming up I'd like to see a red, white, and blue layout honoring those who have given their all for this country!
There must be stars and an eagle OR flag somewhere on the layout!
Good luck ladies!!!
The remaining crafters have this week off!
BUT I will have them vote on who to bring back!!
Good luck ladies!!!
Until then...

They had to make a Mother's Day Project that was vintage-y AND it had to have stars on it somewhere! OH MY! Talk about difficult but they all did an amazing job! Here are the projects!
Immunity Winner (can not be voted off but CAN be voted for Fan Favorite!)

Last Immunity Winner Revealed!!!

Hi everyone! Sorry this post is soooo late! With the Birthday boy having his game and party on Saturday and then Mother's Day on Sunday I'm a little behind!!

The crafters if they chose to play for immunity had to make something birthday-ish with the theme of video games using only the colors Red, Blue, Green, and Black! Now that said if they had a human cut out or piecing they could use skin color.

Also we had a redemption play off... Only one turned in a project so she will continue on to try to make it back to the main Island! Here's her project:

And yes,.. It's sideways... I have NO idea why but blogger hates me today! The photo I have is right side up but try as I might I can not get it flipped around right and I'm tired of fighting with it! :( I'm sorry redemption player!!

Here are the projects for those playing for Immunity....




And I had the Birthday Boy check em all out and his pick for winner of Immunity is...
So as long as #1 turns in a project this week they are safe!
Remember your BIG Challenge (Vintage Mother's Day) is due this Friday by 11:59 pm Eastern!
I will post them Saturday and hopefully we have all votes in this time around in a timely manner!
Good luck to you all and I am SOOOOO sorry I didn't get this posted sooner!!
Until next time....

Our First Torch-ee is Announced & a Crazy Immunity Challenge ♥

Well it was a difficult decision here on the Island but the votes are in...
Here's how they came out..
as you can see....a split vote! So what to do? Have the immunity winner make the tie-breaker vote! I do not envy her having to make this decision...But with a heavy heart she did and it's time to say good-bye to....
We shall miss you #2...
Or will we??? ;)
That's right folks! Redemption Island is back in play this season!!!
So #2 will have a chance to get back into the game!!!
Here is the LAST Immunity Challenge
(Which due to the late-ness of this post will be due
11:59 pm Eastern)
So Crafters (if you wish!) and Redemption Island players (no choice you must!)
here it is:
My little boy's 6th Birthday is May 11
He LOVES all things video game!
Make something for a birthday boy that incorporates
some kind of video game!
Oh..and did I mention..
He really likes the colors Red, Blue, Green, and Black...
So those are the ONLY colors you can use!
No variations.,..
The actual colors only.
Have fun!!!!
And since it's my little man's day guess what...
He will be picking the winner of Immunity
who gets to stay on Redemption Island!!!
I know...I'm a stinker, huh?
Have fun crafters/redemption players!

Big Projects Revealed- UPDATED

*****I am still waiting on votes for who to torch! I will do a new post as soon as I know and have told our torch-ee!****

Good morning everyone!!!
It's FINALLY here... The day where we get to see projects from all the crafters here! I'm soooo excited...Not to see anyone voted off...But for the game to begin. And let me tell you what... The crafters have a very difficult choice to make! All projects are super fab!

For the projects this week they had to choose a project from last season and recreate it with their own spin on it. So each project will have 2 photos. The first photo is the original project and the 2nd is our crafter's spin project!

Of course you on the sidelines will get to vote by commenting. Remember the comments will show up right away! You are voting for fan favorite who will have A HUGE advantage coming up!

Crafters you have until sunday night (May 5) at 11:59 pm eastern to email me with the number of who you would like to send packing! Choose wisely!!! I will notify the person being torched before I post it!

The Immunity winner from last week CAN NOT be voted for torching... This project CAN be voted on for fan favorite tho. If you choose to vote this one fan favorite simply comment with "Immunity Winner"

Now here are the rest that can be voted for both Fan Favorite and Torching!
 (Remember 2 photos for each project!)

(Remember 2 photos for each project!)

(Remember 2 photos for each project!)

(Remember 2 photos for each project!)

So there you have it!!! Crazy amazing, right? Good luck choosing Fan Favorite and Who gets their torch put out!!!
I'll announce which project is voted out Monday
as well as "Immunity" info!
Your next big project

Vintage week is here!
