About The Episode

Episode archive posted on January 25, 2021

Episode #45 brought some cold parameters with “snowman”, but also brought us a warm hearted Guest Crafter from Ontario, Canada named Tracey McNeely. I enjoyed getting to know Tracey better, when the internet behaved, and found her to be a sweet woman who loves paper crafting! Her style is as a clean as the new fallen snow, and I know you will enjoy her online tutorials & projects on her social media platforms. Scroll down to find the links because she is great. Thank you for playing, Tracey, and for submitting these two cute cards!

The wheel’s yellow, green, and blue parameter seemed like the curve ball, but it really opened up great looking cards! I had so much FUNN each of your submissions! You’ll get all sorts of ideas for snowman cards in the future as you’ll find snowmen who dance, pop-up, peek through a window, and even melting!

Have FUNN and we’ll see you for Episode #46 later this week. THANKS, Tracey, and everyone!

I used shimmer paper and added a little “Stella” on the hat and scarf. Fun card to do. Thank you.
Carolee Crabb
Her first time to emboss with embossing shimmer powder.
All parameters met although you won't be able to tell that the snowman has been shimmered. Love creating with you.

Is aqua blue of green? I cheated with teal and aqua to do blue and green, but got to break out Speckled Bird ink. Faceless & corrugated...

I didnt have a snowman die, so made him from circles. Not sure that the camera picks up the glint in his sparkly blue eyes or the shimmer spritz

Challenging! Glimmer on upside down snowman and brushed on embossed background. Also on the background behind the snowmen & flakes of sentiment.
