About The Episode

Episode archive posted on May 10, 2021

It was FUNN to craft with Crafty Mama Diaries’ crafty mama herself – Helen Schlette. The wheel gave us some great parameters so Helen got to make one of her favorite types of cards, too. Helen made a great slimline card with a charming scene of little critters enjoying life. I really enjoyed our time together, and know you will, too. Thank you, Helen.

The submissions from #60 are so varied and I love it! We can never tell what the parameters will inspire, and we got a wide range of interpretations. Your well-kissed brains went from under the sea to soaring in the sky with all sorts of FUNN cards set on the ground, too!

We want to thank Melissa Miller from Melissa Miller Makes for her generous gifts as this week’s Spin Sponsor. Our Spin Sponsor‘s kindness is a wonderful way to thank our FUNN friends who watch the show and contribute to the submission CardBoard. Thank you, Melissa! Be sure to subscribe to Melissa’s YT for her great tips.
