Peacock Amazing You Card

I had the pleasure of crafting at Libby's today. We worked on color challenge cards. It is so much more fun for me to craft with friends. Hub isn't bad, but he refuses to craft with me (imagine that!). For this week's color challenge, the colors weren't as big of a mental block as the previous two challenges.

When I first laid out the three colors I thought, oh boy it's going to be...

Valentine's Cards 2018 - Painted With Love | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

It is almost Valentine's Day, It snuck up so fast! I gathered a bunch of new materials and borrowed some supplies so I could make this year's Valentine's Day cards. I then took over our bedroom and had everything out on the bed and our shared table. I felt like a mad scientist. Hub is very supportive, understanding my need to be creative so he took his laptop and setup in the kitchen for the...

This week's Creative Cat Crew Color challenge #44 was another tough one. Each week I further challenge myself to use a new stamp set and each week I have less options to choose from. I am staying at my mom's this weekend and did not bring any Very Vanilla. She didn't have anything close so I substituted Whisper white instead, I did make the white a small part of the project rather than the...

I held off on creating the alternatives until I was able to raid Libby's stash. Even after the raid, I felt a bit limited of course, but I managed to triple my completed card stash from 2 to 6 completed cards and 5 of them are Birthday cards. It was a fun challenge to figure out clever ways to make finished looking cards with what I had on hand. Video Length 17 min. 56 sec.

Waterfront Plaid Birthday Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Having so few supplies really makes one think outside the box. When I was narrowing down what type of card to make my father-in-law for his birthday, the stamp set I chose was an easy choice. I think I own 12 sets of stamps and only so many of them are masculine birthday "capable".

I went with the Waterfront stamp set from the Occasions catalog. Then I thought of the cool plaid DSP that...

UNBOXING - Stampin' Up! Resupply AND SAB-Occasions Order | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

My first Stampin' Up! re-stocking order has arrived! I sent it ahead of us to my mom's and it actually arrived the day after we got into town. I am not set up to video yet but was determined to capture this once in a lifetime moment. I am not sure what the statistic is of people who lose everything and get to start over with a clean slate.

Certainly in my crafting world I have learned a...
