Waterfront Cards | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

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...

Hub and I often walk through our campground to get all of our fitness steps in. We enjoy the flora and fauna and like to see everyone's RVs.

It was a huge bus that we have seen here before. 

Many RVers live in the Thousand...

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.

I have been seeing alot of posts regarding the new Subtle Embossing Folder. So, I figured I'd better document my thoughts on it. Back in June when I first received the product, I created a controlled experiment to test the effects of this embossing folder. The video showed varied colors as well as compares to smooth cardstock. I kept the design the same for all cards made as part of the...

Alternatives - Paper Pumpkin July 2018 - Picnic Paradise

I am a week late in receiving my monthly Paper Pumpkin kit. I am ok with that because it means that I am back on the road! I try to NOT pay attention to any of the alternative Facebook posts out there so that my alternatives are of my own making. I will say however that I knew this month came with cards and baskets. What I did not know until opening the kit is that the baskets are made from a...
