The next two projects I have to share are purple. I love purple!

This first one uses the puzzle stamp and die set "Love You To Pieces Clear Bundle". The project uses Gorgeous Grape and Heather Highland cardstock and ink. The only color comes from the Whisper White sentiment puzzle pieces, the pearlized doily and the two pearls. The stamped hearts added along the bottom make a perfect...

Happy Birthday Mix It Up Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

This is a pretty straight forward card. I like all of the busy-ness going on with it. It has lots of layers and embellishments. The sentiment and decorative stamping behind the sentiment is from the "Detailed With Love" stamp set. The DSP is Love What You Do and the seed beads are Tranquil Textures Sprinkles.

I am making the big trek from Washington state, down to the Floriday keys and back up to Orlando for OnStage. I have saved a selection of cards to share as I will have no time to bring out the crafting supplies but I will have time to write while we are driving. This card was from a Stamp A Stack event I attended in July. It was this very card that convinced me to purchase the die set. I can...

I had so much fun at my craft retreat. This time I had large card making projects planned. One project was to come up with a series of basic cards for beginning card makers. From what I was told these folks have never made a card before. So I researched a good first stamp set and then created 10 very basic beginner cards from them making sure to cover alot of different card types. I then...

Sneak Peek - Holiday Catalog - Kindness Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

One of the challenges of travelling full time in an RV is receiving packages. Many campgrounds do not accept camper packages unless medication or an RV part. So, when I placed my pre-order for the holiday catalog on 8/1, I knew I would not be picking it up until 8/30. However, after we evacuated from Leavenworth because of a fire nearby, we were within an hour of my in-laws. I didn't count on...

Back at the March craft retreat I made a set of Brusho'ed backgrounds. I have slowly used them one by one, and now there are two left. One of them has texture paste on it. Today I brought the textured background out (for what seems like the millionth time) and I told myself I would do something with it. 

I noticed a challenge that fit this background which gave some direction. ...

Just My Type Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I've CASEd a card today because I know my husband will like it and it has a tilted layer which is good for me to use since I rarely consider tilting an option. This was a great learning opportunity for me. I don't have the project owner's info, I believe it came from a swap with my team, and I thank them for inspiring me today!

My husband and I come from the era where we had typing...
