About The Episode

Episode archive posted on February 22, 2021

You know something exceptionally cool about Craft Roulette?

The people. You, the guests, Our Guest Crafters are so cool, their cats are even cool. We had a good laugh with “Linden” the cat and Crafty Al. Crafty wasn’t on our schedule, but due to the terrible weather results in Texas, our scheduled Guest Crafter Katy Taylor needed to back out until she had more reliable electricity and water! We have good news about Katy; she is scheduled for March 26th Episode!

We had a wonderful evening with the Crafty Al and the wheel. So many good moments in the show, I hope you will watch it and share it with your crafty friends. Please click on her social media sites below and follow, subscribe, and do whatever she asks because everyone loves Crafty Al! Be sure to enter her Share the Love Giveaway!

CONTRIBUTOR SHOWCASE is Tuesday, February 23rd at 1:00 p.m. CST on our YouTube channel. Craft Roulette is not a lesson and we don’t teach techniques or tips, but you might pick up an idea or 50 during our shows. Craft Roulette is an idea, interpretation driven “crafter-tainment” show. We love seeing your vast and marvelous interpretations of the four spins each week. Each one of you should be kissing your brains! Thank you for being such a brilliant community.

See you at the wheel on Friday.

Inspired by Piet Modrian. I used ribbon for the lines and crinkle inkle on the die cuts.

I used toile to do my crinkle inkle, layered Cardstock, stamped cups minimal Copic coloring, and ribbon. This was fun!

Happy Ester! Decorated birch branches is a tradition in Sweden since late 1800. Often with feathers, eggs and chickens. An egg cup with flowers.
Christina Bromee
Three hip colourful gentlemen with a quizzing glass each on an inkle crinkled background are "deer" to me.
Boel Ask
I crinkle inkled the tabletop with Kleenex in yellow, wine label is blue, background is red and white, and a little black bow and some bling.

Janet Covington
CASE'd from Pinterest(Stesha Bloodhart) but switched it around to go with the parameters. I almost forgot the ribbon! LOL!
Rose Dubberstein
My cup almoat looks more like my Pampered Chef covered mixing bowl. Lol. Some days I need that much PositiviTea to make it thru.

Lorissa Woolley
Crinkle inkle lemons, red letters and "ribbon",blue background, glass to choose! First time heat embossing I think gives it a "glass" effect.
Maria Ayala
Copic colored. Distress ink in the BG has the crinkle inkle. Didn't have ribbon, hope a bow in their "hair" will count. Stamp: Hello Bluebird.
Wendi J
I crinkle-inkled the yellow and red lenses of my sunGLASSES; then I made a second option using Crafty Al’s Clear Card technique with palm trees!

Had this idea and thought it was funny. Hope others will too.

I used a circle mask and crinkle inkled through it. I also used yellow ribbon.

Had 5 at a crop today and am struggling with a sinus infection so was doubtful I could come up with something. Pleased with the result.

I struggled with the ribbon, but you will find it peeking behind the sentiment! Another FUNN challenge!
Sandee Carlson
I used the same 3 inks to crinkle inkle, blend the velum, and color images. Ingenious or too lazy to find matching markers? I’ll never tell.
