Mom's Anniversary Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I am not sure how it happened, but I totally forgot my mom's anniversary. That is to say I did not have it written down on my little calendar! It ends up that my mom and her husband are sick and they BOTH forgot their anniversary. They also had a huge snow storm blow through that week which was a distraction. The snow was so deep that my mom's suv tunneled through the snow. They live in a...

Valentime From Hub To Me | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Before time gets away from me I wanted to post this project. On February 13th, in the late afternoon, I placed all of my Valentine supplies on Hub's desk with some Whisper White card front blanks. The last card I recall Hub creating was for my birthday a couple of years back.

I also gave Hub a container of Paper Pumpkin Spots as they are all very juicy. My own Spots are lovingly worn...

Tips and Tricks on 2019 Monopoly | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I am a detail oriented person. I love complicated things. This is a bad thing and a good thing. The annual Monopoly game at Safeway (& other stores) is just the kind of game for a person like me. My mom thinks I am crazy and she happily gives me all her game tickets each year. I did not start playing seriously until I officially retired. I had a detail-oriented job that kept me plenty busy...

Blends Meet Copics - Creating Blending Sheets | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

After losing all of my crafting supplies I was a bit down of course and did not do a good job of organizing my replacement Copic markers. I was pretty much in love with the new Blends and spent all my time with them. Stampin' Up! has released the colors slowly over time and I finally made myselft spend some time organizing and cataloging my Copic markers. 

I think what has happened is...

Here For You Friend Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Today I have a very pretty card to share. This project uses annual catalog products as listed in the supplies below. I think what makes this card so pretty is the photographic DSP, and as a rule I don't use photography on cards. 

Sentiment layer: 3/4" x 3"
DSP layer:2 1/2" x 4"
Old Olive mat:  2 3/4" x 4 1/4"
