About The Episode

Episode archive posted on August 24, 2020

Good morning! I’m going to get right at it.

FUNN University launch is set for September 1st, 2020.
What does that mean?
FUNN U. has been in “beta” for well over a year, and thanks to many faithful founding students, we have refined, redefined, and honed the current day model of FUNN University. We are very proud of our online paper craft art education and want to encourage you to try us soon. Here are just a few services we offer and how we are different:

  • We sell no products. FUNN University is not affiliated with any direct sales company or other company.
  • We teach “outside the kit”. So many paper crafters are inundated with supplies. Having no selling agenda helps us share ideas, not products. Thus, the light bulb in our shield.
  • We make crafting FUNN again. Don’t worry about being perfect, instead join us  to enjoy the learning, growing, and the supportive atmosphere.
  • Lock-in the lowest price NOW. Our current $9.95/month price is more than a bargain, and you can lock-in that value now through the end of the month.

But, as LeVar Burton used to say, “…but you don’t have to take my word for it.”

We always give you your  first month FREE. Enroll today.

Now, back to our show.
Episode #24 inspired some very FUNN projects (scroll down). We thank the contributors for taking time to watch the show, create amazing projects, and sharing them with us.
If you haven’t watch our show, please click on the video clip above. We think you’ll be surprised by the production level and game show feel, like Ellen J. was, when she commented, “Mary, I’d like to compliment you and your helpers for the production value of your programs. I am in awe!” Thank you, Ellen!

Ellen sent in an incredible project last week – a taco truck purse! Be sure to check out Episode #23 HERE. As a matter of fact, if you want a go-to inspiration spot, we have them right here.

MORE FUNN Coming in Episode #25!

We are pleased to announce that Katy Taylor will be our Guest Crafter next Friday, August 28th! Many of you know Katy’s cute paper crafts from her Instagram account where she shares close ups of cute ideas, and some personal moments, as well. Let me introduce you to Katy in her own words,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I am a wife and working mother of three boys (well, 2 of them are men but I ignore that…lol) and a little girl. I have been a Close To My Heart Consultant for almost 18 years and I LOVE IT!! Since I work full-tme and run after two very active children, Scrapbooking is a stress-reliever and a creative outlet that I enjoy SO MUCH!!! My grandmothers were very creative so Summers at their houses were FULL of crafts so I guess I’ve been creating since I was a young girl…scrapbooking since High School!”

Be sure to join us during the pre-show of Craft Roulette and welcome Katy as she bravely joins us at the wheel! Thanks, Katy – you are going to add some Texas-style FUNN.

FRIDAY, August 28th, at 6:30 p.m. Central. Have a virtual party with us!

Welcome Heart 2 Heart!

Hi to our friends from the Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog, too! Besides all of the fabulous submissions that bring many smiles, I submitted my “smile” basket to their “Something to Smile About,” challenge. There are always some cute ideas on this long-running challenge I have enjoyed for years!

STUDENT SHOWCASE

FUNN University offers not only hours of live classes, a library full of lessons, a digital layout guide, a student lounge, free merchandise, we also offer a way to share projects based on the lessons you have taken. After a private discussion on the homework with me, students have the option to share their projects with you on the last day of the month. We do this on my Mary Gunn FUNN Facebook page and call it, “Student Showcase.” I love it! Be sure to mark August 31st at 6:30 p.m. Central for the next one.

This, That, and the Other

There really is so much going on, and we’d love to have you with us along the way. It really helps us when you share us with your friends. Thank you!
Be sure to sign up for my newsletter (over there on the right). It is an easy way to stay engaged with FUNN.

But, more importantly, ENROLL in FUNN University and start your first free month, get locked-in at this super low rate of $9.95 (higher price coming on September 1st), and plan on joining us for the next Craft Roulette with our special guest crafter Katy Taylor!

Have a wonderful day – go be inspired by the fabulous projects by our very appreciated contributors! You guys blow my mind. I love how you are expanding and tapping into your beautiful creative selves to inspire the rest of us. KYB & TY

All of my shredded tissue was used for silent auction for cancer fundraiser baskets. So tearing tissue it is. Then forgot it in one basket.

I was going to say that the tearing part was tearing my hair out making this...but alas...tore the white fabric for the bow.

I used a Christmas wreath paper and my Cricut to make this basket, and added a paper torn strip along the top.
