About The Episode

Episode archive posted on May 3, 2021

Enjoyed crafting with a new Guest Crafter on #59. Allison Cope was so easy to work with and I had such a nice time chatting with her. It was so appropriate that the wheel gave us cats (or dogs), too, because Ally is not only a talented paper crafter and stamp designer, she is a cat looooover! You’ll enjoy meeting her on this episode, too, I think. Be sure to check out her blog and see all the wonderful projects she makes!

She will be back in July along with some of her crafty buddies, too. Mark your calendar for July 2nd when Ally is back with Sandy Boone from Three Room Studio, and Candice Richardson. It is sure to be a night you won’t want to miss.

Onto the submissions – for having a limited color palette, you all sure brought a lot of variety! Well done! There are cats with birds, dogs with cats, cats in envies and mailboxes, big cats and dogs, and little cats and dogs. Have FUNN getting inspired by this week’s over 70 submissions, and join Ally and me on Tuesday at 1:00 p.m. Central for Contributor Showcase when we discuss each card that was submitted!

Many thanks to our Spin Sponsors for this week’s viewers and contributors! Please give a big heart to Penguin Palace Stamps for their generous gift certificate, and Ally Cope for her FUNN gift certificates to Catherine Pooler stamps.
