The first round of the chapters is called “Faster craft.” For this challenge, contestants will have to finish a craft in a fixed amount of time successfully. The idea behind this activity is to prove that they can work in a fast and creative way, managing pressure and delivering quality results.
The second round is called “The master craft collection.” For this part of the episode, contestants will have to complete a themed task. To succeed, they must find a balance between expertise and creativity. In the end, a tribunal with expert judges will decide which one is the winning craft of the week.

Every chapter of this show features three talented crafters that compete against one another during two rounds. The challenges that they have to face vary depending on the episode. This way, the contestants can show how imaginative and resourceful they are by embracing different and unexpected crafting experiences. The host, Tori Spelling, and a panel of judges will decide in the end who is the winner of the episode. The goal of the contestants is to earn the final $10.000 price.
The first part of the show is called the “Pop craft challenge.” For this round, the participants have to recreate a popular craft by using a big collection of supplies. The supplies are displayed in the “Michaels craft closet,” donated by Michaels, a well-known crafting materials store.
