About The Episode

Episode archive posted on January 25, 2021

Episode #45 brought some cold parameters with “snowman”, but also brought us a warm hearted Guest Crafter from Ontario, Canada named Tracey McNeely. I enjoyed getting to know Tracey better, when the internet behaved, and found her to be a sweet woman who loves paper crafting! Her style is as a clean as the new fallen snow, and I know you will enjoy her online tutorials & projects on her social media platforms. Scroll down to find the links because she is great. Thank you for playing, Tracey, and for submitting these two cute cards!

The wheel’s yellow, green, and blue parameter seemed like the curve ball, but it really opened up great looking cards! I had so much FUNN each of your submissions! You’ll get all sorts of ideas for snowman cards in the future as you’ll find snowmen who dance, pop-up, peek through a window, and even melting!

Have FUNN and we’ll see you for Episode #46 later this week. THANKS, Tracey, and everyone!

Guest Bio

Hi there, I’m Tracey McNeely and my crafty blog is ‘In My Creative Opinion’! My husband and I live in the beautiful Muskokas of Ontario, Canada and we have two adult children who are now living on their own. Ben just turned 26 and and Brooklyn is 23. I’ve  been crafting in some form as long as I can remember, but my love affair with paper, stamps and ink started way back in the 90’s! I am always keen to try something new but my Distress Oxides are a go to staple in my creative process. I’m so excited to be joining you Mary for  Craft Roulette!

All parameters met although you won't be able to tell that the snowman has been shimmered. Love creating with you.

Is aqua blue of green? I cheated with teal and aqua to do blue and green, but got to break out Speckled Bird ink. Faceless & corrugated...

I didnt have a snowman die, so made him from circles. Not sure that the camera picks up the glint in his sparkly blue eyes or the shimmer spritz

I know! Apparently, snowmen are quite a popular image to play with, and no one had much problem with the color curve ball. either, did they? Thank you, Tracey! I agree with you, fab job by all – including you.

Well, some fun entries. Unfortunately I don’t see mine here. I did upload it the evening of the show. This was my first time with Craft Roulette.
