Robots? What? No!Posted: February 13, 2023 Filed under: cog wheels, craft roulette, Dies, Penny Black | Tags: craft roulette, Penny Black creative dies 7 Comments
I mentioned last week that I was scheduled as a guest on Craft Roulette live youtube show on Friday. Thank you to those who dropped in to watch; I saw a few familiar names in the chat. The show is an improv crafting show hosted by the energetic and enthusiastic Mary Gunn. During the show a wheel is spun to choose four parameters then Mary and I each make a card live on youtube which follows all four parameters.
On Friday night before the wheel was spun Mary asked me if I would like to veto one of the parameters and I mentioned it was hard to choose between ‘robot’ and ‘gnome’ because I would be at a loss with either of those elements. Well, wouldn’t you know it, I vetoed gnomes and the wheel stopped on robots!
The parameters on Friday night were:
- project – MAP FOLD
- colours – BEACH COLOURS
- element – ROBOT(S)
- random – LABEL(S)
Here’s my reaction 46 minutes into the show!
It all turned out just fine and I made an’ out of my comfort zone card’ but featured two lovely pieces of paper from my stash and some fun dies.

I like this better than gnomes.
You did a great job. You are certainly expanding your creativity there.
Looking forward to more.
Thanks Tish, it is a little nerve wracking to be on the spot like that!
What a fabulous masculine card! I can’t get over that you designed this only learning the parameters at the last minute. Just amazing. I love that you do all styles. Most of us fall into a rut but that hasn’t happened for as long as I followed your blog which was years before I commented. .
Ahh thank you so much. You are such an encourager. I do like experimenting with different kinds of techniques and styles so I am glad you enjoy seeing them. Of course, exploring them live on youtube is maybe not the most relaxing way to do it!
You are most welcome. You have enabled me many times!
Sorry I missed the craft roulette live but will endeavour to watch it. We have our son over from Sydney, the first time we have seen him for three years, so have been away from the computer quite a bit. I think you did a terrific job with this brief Heather, and I love the all the cogs and the colours are great…such a pretty background paper too. I think I would have been completely stumped if faced with this combination..lol. I love the cogs and colours you used, and the background paper is so pretty. x
That is very exciting to have your Sydney son visiting Pat, enjoy your time together. I know how precious it is.
