This month I created six alternatives and shared some fun techniques that are super easy and can be used to add dimension to any project.

Even though this kit is a smaller size card, you get twelve cards and matching envelopes and I show how you can use the envelope fronts to make twelve more cards!

The size converts very easily to A2 size or 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" which is my preferred...

I find that the new forward service manager is not very prompt at forwarding, and often she doesn't retain the tracking information which means I have to guess when it is time to drive the 15 to 20 minutes to the post office. 

Plus, we are in Arizona, which...

I show 4 beginner cards and then convert them to casual/avid cards with a fifth avid card tossed in...

Friends Of A Feather October 2018 | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I am late in receiving this month's Paper Pumpkin due to our travel schedule. I haven't been in one place for more than a day or two since mid September. The second I was checked in to the Orlando Thousand Trails for a long enough stretch, I had our mail forwarded. In the package was the October Paper Pumpkin. 

I had to finish all of my swaps and gifts for OnStage today before I could...
