November 2018 Colour Combo Blog Hop | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I cannot believe how fast time flies by! Last month I was traveling and preparing for my first Stampin' Up! OnStage conference and now this month, I just finished the event. Wow, what an eye opener! My husband and I are going to stay in hot and muggy Florida into December so we are not currently in travel mode.  

Today I am joining the Colour Combo blog hop. I love the colors this month...

November Birthday Card For Mom | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

This month's Kre8tors blog hop is all about birthdays. In Fact, Melissa who runs this hop's birthday IS today, so I want to wish her a good one!

I had to get my project finished early due to OnStage, which is the fall Stampin' Up! conference. Since the location is Orlando, Florida, we decided to make a journey of it. We are now camping in Florida all the way from Washington state! This...

Celebrate Banners Card Fronts | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I cannot believe today hub drove me to the hotel and I went to the convention center to check in for OnStage. It is a bit surreal. I AM AT ONSTAGE /pinch. It is my first one, and I also cannot believe hub and I drove over 4000 miles to be here with our home! We are staying at a super nice resort in Orlando, the Thousand Trails resort, and it was only a 30 minute drive to get to the hotel....

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...

Onstage Card Front Laser Cut DSP | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

This card front is slightly under standard A2 size. This is because the background is from the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Designer Series Paper which is a 12" x 12" so the width of the trimmed down piece is under 4".

I love to make many layered cards. I used the round and small rectangle stitched label dies from Stitched All Around. I also colored a snippet of lace trim...

highway 66 | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

On the way back up to Peace River, hub opted to take 27 back in lieu of 41. We saw lots of cane fields, and burning cane fields. After dealing with Pacific Northwest fires all summer, it was very sad to have to drive that way seeing the haze in the sky and the smell of burning. Eventually we turned onto 66, which is the highway we take to go play disc golf at the YMCA.

We were about 10...

Snowflakes in Copper & Blueberry Bushel card front  | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

This design is based on the negative cutout of the Beautiful Blizzard Snowflake die. For each sheet of snowflakes you cut, you end up with an entire sheet of cardstock ready to be adhered to a contrasting background color. In this case I chose Blueberry Bushel cardstock. I used liquid glue to adhere the sheet and the individual snowflakes. 

Next, I added a strip of copper glimmer paper...
