Hello Card I Sent To A Fellow Cardmaker | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I decided that I had PLENTY of cards on hand so to celebrate World Card Making Day, I pulled out cheerful cards to mail to my cardmaking peeps! I then spent alot of time on the envelopes as I like to do. I already forwarned Hub last night that I was going to be busy all morning. He respected my schedule and at 3pm we drove to the tiny town of Plain, Wa and I left my cards in the little silver...

DH Makes A Statement | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I've been blogging our travels since March of this year. Finally just yesterday DH says, I don't like that name. Then this morning my mom was talking about how confusing it is to her to read various blogs with their insider acronyms and names which prevents her from enjoying the storyline. She too doesn't like DH because it is not a term she is used to.

For example she belongs to an...

I wanted to create a project outside of my comfort zone in color, paper and card style. I challenged myself to start with a dark card base, fold the front down, I used Copic X-press IT for the floral image and then used vellum for the sentiment, leaves and dragonfly.

I also used metallic inks on the dark grey base in silver and copper. I wanted the floral image to float over the folded...

Fall Colors Are Beautiful In Washington! | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Yesterday was moving day! For many, many years I had travelled the first weekend in October to Wenatchee for the end of the season reining show. I always loved the drive because the fall colors were so beautiful that time of year. It has been 5 years now since I made that trip and we drove it yesterday to our temporary housing as we finish preparation for our journey to Texas. Since we just...

And This Is Why You MUST Turn Off Your Water When You Leave | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Ok folks, we've been diligently turning off our water since we moved into our trailer. On Monday we left in the AM and turned the water off. One thing was different however, DH had moved our scale from between the sink/shower to between the wall/toilet. It is quite heavy. Upon our return that afternoon I turned the water back on.

We had been grocery shopping and were busy bringing in...

Fall Tree Thinking Of You Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I made this project after creating a different card using Stampin' Up!'s A Sheltering Tree. The first one was in summer colors so I thought I should make one in fall colors. Colors used were: Cajun Craze and Early Espresso. I like the look of the horizontal popped up area for the tree leaves. I stamped off the cajun craze for the lighter leaves. This was a very quick card to make and I like...

What's In My Bag - Disc Golf - Tracy | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

As part of our RV travels, we play disc golf. When we choose places to stay the very first thing I do is see how many disc courses are nearby. Since retirement, this once very casual hobby has become part of our routine. We like that we can get exercise while enjoying a very fun hobby that we have played since the 1980s(In the video I state 90s and have been corrected, we dated in high school...

Hometown Greetings Fall Colors Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

How time flies! I am a new Stampin' Up demonstrator, and I've been working on my sales strategy which is tricky. Because I travel full time, I had to build something that will work for my potential full time travelling customers. So, I am going to be the Paper Pumpkin fairy! I want to promote a product that takes up little space and comes with everything needed to be creative in one little box...
