Picnic Time ATC

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Friday, August 08, 2014 0 stamps of approval

Hello!

It's been such a long time, I know!  But, I'm going to do my best to come back often and share with you again.

To begin with, I'd like to share an ATC that I recently made for a swap that I run on Facebook.  If you're an ATC swapper, please leave a comment!  I'd love to invite you to join our group on Facebook, we're always looking for new crafters to swap with us!

This card is a special single card that I made, so there isn't another one exactly like it!  I made it using leftover pieces that I had from a box card that I made.

ATC - July2014 - "Picnic w/ Donna"

I hope you like my ATC!
Check back, I promise I'll be posting my crafts more often!

Hugs,
Dee

Birthday Card for a Little Sweetie

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Sunday, November 24, 2013 2 stamps of approval
My little guy had a birthday party to go to yesterday for a sweet little friend of his.  Since he's not quite as into card making as Emily is, I had to make a card for him to give with the present.

I flipped through my stack of images that I had printed up and came across this Saturated Canary cute that I thought would be perfect!

I colored it up with Copics, made sure there was lots of sparkly paper and glitter and finished it all up with her name in rhinestones.  What cute little girly wouldn't love her name in rhinestones??

When I showed it to Boo, he rolled his eyes at me!  LOL!!  But, he said he liked it and from the big hug I got when I picked him up from the party, I'm guess that she did as well!  :)  That just made my day!

Enjoy my sweet little card, I had fun making it!

I'm late, I'm late!!

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 0 stamps of approval
I can't believe I forgot to post this on challenge day!!

There's a challenge happening right now at Meljen's Designs and it's called Take 5 - use 5 elements that are the same.


I really wanted to use 5 bats, but they were a bit big and overpowered the image (we can't have that!!), so I used 5 black rhinestones instead.

Image is available in the shop: Halloween Cupcake

Good Luck on our challenge this week, I look forward to seeing your creations!

Getting a little crafty

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Sunday, September 15, 2013 0 stamps of approval
Halloween always gets me creative!  I have more Halloween cards than I know what to do with and I keep making more!  It's really my favorite holiday to craft for!

This is one of the first Halloween cards I've made this year.  I was just playing around while my daughter made a card (see it here) and I love how this turned out!


Dilly Beans digi stamp and a freebie digi from my good buddy Lizzie!

I'm looking forward to posting more Halloween cards soon!

Hugs,
Dee

Summer's Over....

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Sunday, September 08, 2013 0 stamps of approval
Summer's over and I finally have a little bit of free time to work in my craft room!  I've got so much catching up to do, some days I don't even know where to start!

I've been working on a lot of ATC's lately for my facebook swap group, that's been a lot of fun!  But anything beyond that has been put on the back burner while the kids were home from school!

Now that they're back in school, and we've got our routine sorted out, I'm back in my room and working on finding the mojo again!

Let's start with a birthday card for my Big Brother!


I used a new technique for making a "file folder" card using my envelope punch board and I love how it turned out!  

Hubby says it's a bit flowery and lacey for a guy card, but I'm hoping that it's "Manly" enough for my bro!

I dusted off some Stampin' Up! stamps that I bought quite a long time ago, they've never been inked until today and I really love the detail in this set.

Anyway - hope you like my card and I look forward to posting more fun stuff more often now that school is back in swing!

Hugs,
Dee

Love U ATC

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Saturday, June 15, 2013 2 stamps of approval
I've been making more and more ATC's lately and playing in a few swaps that have been a lot of fun!  I even started up my own swap group on Facebook and we are all working on the first swap theme.  I'm so excited to see what everyone else is making!

I made this quick ATC the other day, just using some scraps that were laying on my craft table and a new image that I picked up at Dilly Beans.


Also, this little cutie fits into the challenge at Southern Girls, which is to use punches.  Both the heart and the square are punched.

Hugs,
Dee

Flower-y Notebook

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Saturday, June 15, 2013 1 stamps of approval
Here's a custom order notebook that I made this week while my Best Friend was visiting:


I love how it turned out with the scattering of flowers and Meljen's Designs cute little Flowers in my Pocket image!

While I was sitting at my craft desk after I finished this up, I decided to make a card using the leftovers and scraps from the notebook.


I also really like how this one turned out, simple and cute!

Challenges:
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - Bingo (flowers, glitter & bling)
Crafting when we Can - Mad For Markers (Copics on notebook)

What's been keeping me busy?

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Thursday, May 09, 2013 0 stamps of approval
Hi All!

I know it's been a very long time since I've posted anything fun for you to look at, so I thought I'd pop in and share with you a little of what I have been working on.

In between kids school, family, and life in general, I have gotten quite a few orders for custom notebooks and that's what has been keeping me busy.

Here are a few notebooks that I completed this past month.

I have a local lady who loves to give my custom notebooks as birthday gifts for all the parties that her kids are invited to.  Apparently, her kids are getting more invitations since they started giving these gifts!  LOL!! 


In honor of National School Nurse Day, this nursing notebook was requested and I love how it turned out!


And, for Teacher Appreciation Week, a couple of notebooks for teachers.


I do love making these notebooks and I especially love seeing the face on the little girls who get to give them as gifts!  

Every notebook includes a bookmark and a custom matching pen.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

If you are ever interested in a custom notebook for yourself, your kids, friends or anything at all, just email me and I can make one for you, too!

NEW Meljen's Cupcakes!

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Friday, March 15, 2013 2 stamps of approval
Hiya!!

Today is new release day at Meljen's Designs and we have 3 brand new yummy cupcakes for you!

With this weekend being St. Patricks Day, I decided to make a card using our new St. Patricks Cupcake!


Is it adorable??  I couldn't decide what color to use for the cupcake wrapper, so I asked Emily, and she said "Gold, of course, Mommy!"  So, a gold wrapper, it is!  I love it when my little girl is in the craft room crafting with me!

Challenges to play along with:


Hugs,
Dee
