Create With Me - Many Mates | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

We moved yesterday, back down to Oregon. We've been moving between two coastal towns all winter. So far our plan has worked and we've seen zero snow while our home area saw over a foot!

Today I am moving on to stepped up projects using bits and pieces from the Stamp With Me videos.

I decided to go ahead and dive into the coordinating die cuts on two of the stepped up projects. I...

Many Mates Simple Stamping | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I've been waiting for time to play with this bundle! Now that Sale-A-Bration has concluded I can dive into all the Many Mates possibilities. First things first, I offer up my opinion on how best to organize a many sentiments stamp set. I present two good solutions. 

I then dive into beginning stamping with minimal coloring which is what interested me in the set to begin with. This stamp...

Working With Thin Line Detail Stamps | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Today's video is a detailed analysis of a belly band card. I believe this is only the second belly band card I have ever made. I use the Dragonfly Garden stamp set which has very thin lines. These thin lines make it more challenging to get a crisp clean stamped image.

A unique aspect of this card that I forgot to mention in the video is that there are NO popped up elements! I cannot...

Fun Fold Friday - Hydrangea Haven | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I love the simplicity of this fun fold. I handed the inspiration card to hub and he didn't get it at first. That is my only concern with the fancy/fun folds, whether the recipient can operate the card or will they never open it and discover what is inside. I give a demo using the new Stampin' Up! trimmer, that now is not so new. It is a very functional tool and I appreciate the little details...

Boy do I get tunnel vision when I craft. I said I would have this posted on Wednesday, however it was moving day so of course I did not get this video up until Thursday. How could I forget moving day!

We did get settled in at our favorite coastal Thousand Trails and this time we took a middle end site which gives me a panoramic view of the slough. After many days of rain, we expected to...
