About The Episode

Episode archive posted on October 24, 2020

Had a great evening with a life-long crafter who measures distance by how long it takes to get to IKEA! “Crafty Al” joined us for an adventure at the Craft Roulette wheel tonight for her first live! Crafty Al has a FUNN YouTube channel where she features “Sheetload of Card” designs, which is a great idea for making many cards using the same sketch. I like how she approaches making cards which is great for a newbie or an “old-bee” like me.

Look at that “Die Board” in Crafty Al’s background!

It was so FUNN to see Crafty Al LIVE in the act of creating – using new products to many of our audience (like Gamsol), and making a stinkin’ cute card with all sorts of ideas that all came together for an, “Oh, yeah, you got this,” card. Scroll down to see the card below.

Episode #33 submissions were just terrific! So much variety

During the show, you’ll discover…
– what a sheet-load of cards is
– Gamsol in action & how to prevent a black ink mistake
– Eunice
– it is ok to change stamp choices (as long as it is not glued down)
– see Crafty Al cut multiple layers with the same die
– brushing on color, then stamping
– foam tape tips
– Nuvo dropping eyes
– what white papers Crafty Al uses

I know you will enjoy many hours of Crafty Al creativity on her YouTube channel! Thank you so much for joining us, Crafty Al! You are a lot of FUNN.

Episode #33 submissions were just terrific! The cards have so much variety. Kiss your brains, contributors! We have an entire animal kingdom going on, and so many shades of orange! You guys are the grooviest. Thank you, and I look forward to sharing these on Friday’s show (Episode #34).

Thank you, peanut gallery, so much for watching and chatting during the live show, sharing this blog, subscribing to our social media, supporting our talented Guest Crafters, and sending in such tremendous and diverse ideas! See you Friday at 6:30 p.m. Central for another night of improvisational paper crafting!

** The audio gets a little out of sync at the end, but we are leaving this video up because of how long it takes to render/upload these videos. We appreciate the understanding! **

Guest Bio

My name is Alicia, although online I am known as “Crafty Al”. I grew up in Iowa (Go, Hawkeyes!), lived in Kansas for about 19 years and currently reside in Nebraska with my husband, daughter and our two kittens.

I have been crafty since I can remember. Whether it was helping my mom stuff fabric wreaths with Polyfil as a child or pre-teen me finishing a cross-stitch pattern. When my sister introduced me to stamping around 1997 and showed me how to heat emboss – I was hooked on papercrafting! To this day watching embossing powder melt and set is one of my favorites.

My style is clean and simple and when I find a sketch/pattern I enjoy, I like to stick with it. That may be the reason why I started SheetLoad of Cards.

About 12 years ago I discovered one-sheet wonders, but wanted to stick to one layout for the paper. I started a monthly e-zine called “SheetLoad of Cards” where I shared sketches, cutting guides and design team samples that focused on creating lots of cards with just a little bit of paper.

I took about a 10-year hiatus and started the series back up last year as a monthly feature on my YouTube channel. The printable is free to subscribers to my channel and each month my collaborators and I share lots of samples to show just how versatile a SheetLoad can be.
