First I need to summarize our stay in Leavenworth. I finally got to check off an item from my bucket list. I wanted to stay a full three weeks in Leavenworth. It was lovely. It was also a great workout because we played disc golf twice a day almost every day. Even the first week, when I still had stitches from Carpal Tunnel surgery, I played right handed, or I would come along and look for Hub...

Video - Using The Brother Scan N Cut 2 CM350 To Cut Out Stampin' Up! Stamps

I got my new catalog stamp sets in May during the pre-order and I managed to get one round of electronic fussy cuts made before we hit the road.

Today I finally pulled out the Brother to cut out stamps from Calligraphy Essentials, Lemon Zest and Fabulous Flamingo. I already have cut outs stashed from In Every Season, Bird Banter, Amazing Congratulations and Rooted In Nature.

It's A Beautiful Day Dove And Flowers Card

This is one of the swap cards I received from my team. What a great cheerful card! I love this sentiment. I love all cheerful and inspiring sentiments. The floral die cuts were formed into domes and were applied with one center dimensional. The background was sponged and the die cuts colored with markers. The irridescent sequins went perfectly to finish it off.

This card is quite easy to make and looks more intricate than it really is. The same two layering circle dies are used for all the circle elements: 1 3/4" and 2". the Sequin embossed background is reversed. A small strip of the DSP from Share What You Love is combined with a strip of Mango Melody. Rhinestones, Glitter Dots and the Pinke Metallic ribbon tied in a knot finish this card. I CASEd...

Video - Two Bathroom Updates For Our Fifth Wheel

Hub had two changes to make in our Bathoom. First, he disliked the toilet roll holder that came with the RV, thank goodness they did not install it. I think they knew how lame it was. Once he cut the hole in the side of the cabinetry, he could more easily fix the pluming leak.

Now granted he could have just turned the black knob on the pex and called it done, but he wanted to have...

This is a swap card I received from a member of my demo team. I love how the seaweed is shaped in a dome behind the octopus. I did add the Tranquil Textures Sprinkles to finish it off. I am so glad I bought this bundle, everyone is making the most awesome cards from it! 

As an independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I am here for you. I would love to be your demonstrator if you do not...

Parrot Birthday Card With Lots Of Repeating Patterns | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Today I was on a mission to create a fun birthday card for my niece. I thought I would focus on DSP and use repeating patterns just for fun, but without being too obnoxious about it.  I chose the Tropical Escape DSP, it is my first time using it. I think I spent half of the planning time figuring out which patterns to use. After that step was complete I colored the Bird Banter bits using a...

We are on our summer vacation. So much has happened in the last six months that it is nice to finally slow down. We are staying in Leavenworth twice on this trip. We start and end here. It's been a week and a half of lovely warm weather and an onsite disc golf course. Needless to say we have enjoyed every minute of it.

I did slip in a minor surgery four days prior to us leaving and that...
