Episode #42 CRAFT BOWL 2021
Whew! The long and the short of it is, HOW FUNN!
We had some very special crafters on the show. Each have so much to offer the crafting community. We loved them all, didn’t we?

Another interesting combination of parameters for our Craft Bowl Guest Crafters!
Every week there is a “curve ball” that stretches us just a little and we end up with cute cards that would never have been made otherwise. The wheel is a creativity block buster!
By the huge amount of submissions, all outstanding, the wheel and our Guest Crafters stirred up your creative juices! From Sweden to Australia and lots of points in between the wheel is bringing the world a little closer. WoW, you brought game!

About This Week's Guests
Toronto, CanadaVisit Ardyth's blog VIsit Ardyth's YouTube View Guest Bio
I started cardmaking in 2006, at a Stampin’ Up! Party and have never looked back. Before that, I would not have claimed to be crafty or creative at all – I’m an accountant (a profession where creativity is frowned upon)!
I live in Toronto, Canada, I have two ‘children’ – one in University and one in her last year of high school
I started my YouTube channel in 2017, and I love to make videos showing how you can get more from craft supplies by using them in unexpected ways!

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.

I love to make pretty things. And I love to inspire others in their paper crafting journey, whether it’s Cricut, scrapbooking, card making, stamping, invitations, or home & baby nursery decor! When I found CTMH 11+ years ago, I first fell in love with the clear stamps and easy-to-match products. Then I fell in love with all the other high-quality products and Cricut collections that help me complete my projects faster, simpler, and easier — which is always a plus in my book!
