Pink Circles Adventure Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

This card is quite easy to make and looks more intricate than it really is. The same two layering circle dies are used for all the circle elements: 1 3/4" and 2". the Sequin embossed background is reversed. A small strip of the DSP from Share What You Love is combined with a strip of Mango Melody. Rhinestones, Glitter Dots and the Pinke Metallic ribbon tied in a knot finish this card. I CASEd...

Video - Two Bathroom Updates For Our Fifth Wheel

Hub had two changes to make in our Bathoom. First, he disliked the toilet roll holder that came with the RV, thank goodness they did not install it. I think they knew how lame it was. Once he cut the hole in the side of the cabinetry, he could more easily fix the pluming leak.

Now granted he could have just turned the black knob on the pex and called it done, but he wanted to have...

This is a swap card I received from a member of my demo team. I love how the seaweed is shaped in a dome behind the octopus. I did add the Tranquil Textures Sprinkles to finish it off. I am so glad I bought this bundle, everyone is making the most awesome cards from it! 

As an independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I am here for you. I would love to be your demonstrator if you do not...

Parrot Birthday Card With Lots Of Repeating Patterns | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Today I was on a mission to create a fun birthday card for my niece. I thought I would focus on DSP and use repeating patterns just for fun, but without being too obnoxious about it.  I chose the Tropical Escape DSP, it is my first time using it. I think I spent half of the planning time figuring out which patterns to use. After that step was complete I colored the Bird Banter bits using a...

Sometimes I get an idea in my head and even though it is way too much work, I just can't stop. This is one of those projects The flowers took an inordinate amount of time.

We are on our summer vacation. So much has happened in the last six months that it is nice to finally slow down. We are staying in Leavenworth twice on this trip. We start and end here. It's been a week and a half of lovely warm weather and an onsite disc golf course. Needless to say we have enjoyed every minute of it.

I did slip in a minor surgery four days prior to us leaving and that...

I bought this stamp set just for me... I say that because I try to buy multi-purpose stamps and IF I buy a very specific set it is because it is calling to me, and this flamingo set kept at it until I finally bought it:).

As far as using it goes, I love how easy it is to make a polished looking card. The flamingo itselt is a four step stamp. The top of the flamingo has a solid stamp for...

Subtle Embossing Folder Demonstrated | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I have been seeing alot of posts regarding the new Subtle Embossing Folder. So, I figured I'd better document my thoughts on it. Back in June when I first received the product, I created a controlled experiment to test the effects of this embossing folder. The video showed varied colors as well as compares to smooth cardstock. I kept the design the same for all cards made as part of the...

Alternatives - Paper Pumpkin July 2018 - Picnic Paradise

I am a week late in receiving my monthly Paper Pumpkin kit. I am ok with that because it means that I am back on the road! I try to NOT pay attention to any of the alternative Facebook posts out there so that my alternatives are of my own making. I will say however that I knew this month came with cards and baskets. What I did not know until opening the kit is that the baskets are made from a...
