About The Episode

Episode archive posted on March 8, 2021

Well, the wheel really did it to us on this episode! As long time supporter Jacque Rippe said,

“Welcome to the addiction that will stretch your imagination.” Jacque Rippe.

Craft Roulette is almost one-year old and we are just thrilled with how many of you enjoy the show! Thank you!
Our Guest Crafters have really added so much FUNN, too! Julie Carrierre joined us and just for her response to the Wheel’s parameters was worth the “price of admission!” Thank you so much for spending the evening with us, Julie, and thank you for your generous “Sponsor-a-Spin” stamp set give aways, too! That was like the cherry on top!

This week’s submissions overwhelmed me with sheer numbers and the quality! You all took those crazy parameters and proved that creativity is alive and well. KYB!

Please join us Tuesday at 1:00 p.m. CT for our CONTRIBUTOR SHOWCASE on youtube.com/CraftRoulette when we go through each card, and you won’t want to miss next Friday’s 1st Anniversary Show on our marygunnFUNN/Craft Roulette FB PAGE.

THANK YOU, everyone, for bringing so much cheer and FUNN to our crafty lives.

Dog ears flap up when tongue is pulled, springy pastel colors, clip art dog, and scrapt embossing folder for dog fur as book element

Only had small dogs that fit in the multi circle windows so made a flap from that. No magazine or books so paper with words was used (hope ok!)

I used book paper to die-cut the dog and used a flap to hide another sentiment under congratulations.

I used one of Crafty Al's sketches and made a flap out of each of the panels.

Flap is the dogwood branch in the lower right. Used the same embossing folder two weeks in a row and it was the wheels fault. No dog things...

Could not find the dog stamp despite recently seeing it. Dogwood it is.

Finally got to use my window thin cut. Very hard to think of a caption/sentiment. Looking forward to your anniversary.

This one was difficult for me. The center section is the flap.

I used the book paper as the planks for Rocky's Dog House. As you can see, the door opens. Rocky came from the Stamping Village birthday set.

Flap really threw me for a loop...can’t wait to see other interpretations of the flap. Do my “bat wings” count as flap? Lol

Flap is where Reading is fun is. Finally a submission!

This was sooooo hard. Use old choir book page. My flap doesn’t really match my other elements. Got in my spring colors and puppies. Very Funn!

Made my own notebook paper with a ruler and pen. The flap didn’t turn out as planned. Wanted it to resemble a little girls diary with the lock.

I’m really stretching the “dog” criteria. I own nothing dog related.
Anne Henderson
Used winter colors on the card front to make the transition to Spring under the flap a surprise
