With our rental work schedule stretching on longer than we'd planned, I did not get my final 4th of July cards posted when I would have liked. But better late than never right? Here's a quick video showing the final creations that I mailed out well before the 4th. 

My hope is that showing how you can choose a couple of designs, sentiments, colors and shapes and end up with a fun...

I enjoyed two days of crafting at my mom's. This is one of my later projects, I had this in mind as a #simplestamping project. Each month Stampin' Up! publishes a simple stamping card style for demonstrators to make. I like to stretch myself to make a few of them. For me, the more elaborate cards are easier. They tend to be busy with many layers of ink and cardstock so many mistakes can be...

I finally had the opportunity to go visit my mom. I was SOOOO ready to craft with her after almost a month of constant work on our rental. Though I can appreciate flexing very rusty home repair and maintenance skills periodically, I really missed crafting! This is the first project I worked on. I started out creating two busy backgrounds and this one was the better of the two.

This...

This is the first project I made at my June craft day with Libby. I had good intentions of entering this in a color challenge but our rental rehab project derailed me so I am just now getting to blogging the projects from that day which was almost two weeks ago now.

This stamp set is distINKtive (Stampin' Up!s pixelizing term) with alot of depth giving it a watercolor looking result....

White Moth At Our Rehab Unit | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

We've been working non-stop on what we call the "Dog Urine Damaged" rehab project. It was a bigger project than we anticipated because no one expected the tenants pets to do so much damage. It makes us both sad and mad that someone can treat our property so poorly. We started work on 6/3 and just finished 6/27. The picture is of a beautiful white moth that flew in and landed by me while I was...
