Card Makin' Mamas inspiration

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Friday, April 20, 2012 3 stamps of approval
Hi there!

Did you know there's a Design Team call going on over at Card Makin' Mamas??  There's only a day or so left to get your applications in, so come on!  I'd love to work with you on this fun team!

Our current challenge is also running strong right now!  We're working on Girlie cards with an awesome sponsor Created by Martha.

I've used some super cute pink & white trim on my girlie card - this trim is so much more than I expected! It's stretchy and soft and really oh-so-pretty!  I've used it on 2 cards already, and I've still got quite a bit left, 5 yards goes a long way!

Sentiment: Stampin' Up

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!  Hope you get some crafting time in and don't forget about our DT call!

Fab 'n' Funky #117 - Lace & Pearls (see those cute little flowers?  Yup, pearls!)

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!!

The kids have hunted for eggs, opened up Easter baskets and already enjoyed a bit of candy today!  They're so much fun to watch and I'm glad that they liked all the things that the Easter Bunny picked out to fill their baskets!

As for me, I made a wreath for our front door!  I picked up eggs and easter grass on sale at Hobby Lobby and cut a wreath shape out of foam board to glue everything onto.  I got the idea on Pinterest (of course!) and I think it turned out fantastic!

I wish you all a Happy Easter!  As always, please remember to think of our soldiers away from home who cannot enjoy the holidays with their families.  


Stamptacular Photo Inspiration

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Sunday, April 08, 2012 2 stamps of approval
This week Stamptacular Sunday Challenge has a photo inspiration for you!

We are sponsored by Birdie Brown digi images and I have used "Rainy Day"

Here is our photo to inspire you

I thought the colors were very pretty and I sponged some pink ink around my yellow papers to mimic the edging on the flower.  There's a touch of blue in the corner of the photo, so I used that as my base color.

I hope to see you play along with us!  Have fun!

My Memories Suite (Giveaway!!)

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Wednesday, April 04, 2012 4 stamps of approval
Good Afternoon!

I am so honored and excited to share with you a wonderfully fun product that I have been playing with for the past couple of weeks!

I was recently given the opportunity to play with the My Memories Digital Scrapbooking software and I have to say that it is So.Much.Fun!!

The first thing that I did, of course was create a fun scrapbook page!  It is scrapbooking software, after all!  And, once I saw that there was a cheetah/leopard print album pre-made and ready for photos, I decided to start there!  You see, I have a little girl who just LOVES all things cheetah!

Here's a page that I designed using this great software!

There are 6 pages in this album that coordinate together beautifully!  The basic page was the background, the lace, the cheetah frames and the Diva! star.  I added the ribbon and bow, the text box and the photos, of course.  It's a lot of fun to just pop the pictures in there, see how they look, move them around or take them out and start all over!

I can print this out to put in my scrapbook, or when I'm done with all 6 pages, I can email the book out to family and friends, I can even have the album professionally printed if I want!

There are so many papers, embellishments and layout to choose from!  And when you visit the store there are hundreds of paper packs that you can purchase to add to your software for even more customizing possibilities!

The next thing I decided to play around with was the design-your-own pages.  We've been planning our weekly menus around the house lately and I've been wanting a cute way to keep track, other than a scrap of paper that is always lost on the counter!  So, I created this custom Menu board that I printed and mounted in a standard frame.  Now, I can write on it with a dry erase marker and change it every week!  It's really been a great addition to our kitchen!

This Menu was a lot of fun, and I think I may work on making one for every season... or maybe every month?  Hmm.. this software really gets my creative juices flowing!!

What else have I done with the My Memories Suite?  I've created quite a few scrapbook pages and even some recipe cards!  Your opportunities to create are just endless!

You should check out the My Memories blog as well!  There are challenges, featured designers, weekly projects and more to keep the creative juices flowing!

Would you like to check out this AWESOME software??  I've got a copy of the My Memories Suite software to give away to one of my readers!  Trust me, you'll love all the cool things you can do with it!

And, I've got a $10 discount code to share with you ALL to use in the store!  Use this code - STMMMS51722 - when shopping in the store for $10 off your purchase!

To win the software all you have to do is:

1 - VISIT the store and leave me a comment telling me which digital paper pack is your favorite

2 - SHARE this giveaway on your blog, Facebook and/or Twitter and leave another comment telling me where you shared (leave a separate comment for each share)

3 - FOLLOW My Memories Suite on Facebook and comment that you've done so

That's it, up to 5 chances to win My Memories Suite software!  You've got 3 weeks to enter this giveway and I will post the winner on Wednesday, April 4, 2012.

I've really been having fun with the My Memories Suite software, and I know you will too!

Check out the MyMemories YouTube channel as well, for tutorials, tips, ideas and more info about using their digital scrapbooking software.

Yes, My Memories provided me with the software in order for me to review it and share with you, and all thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.  :)

Each of us is sharing a special design that we created for you using one of our favorite images from the Meljen's Designs shop!
It is SO hard to pick just one favorite!  I've been on this amazing team since the very beginning and there are SO many adorable images to choose from!  I don't know if I can say that I have a definite favorite, it seems to change everyday!!  I'm sure some of you know exactly what I mean!  Really, when you got such a great selection, there are too many favorites to use on one card!  :)

So, for today, my favorite image is "Little Sock Monkey"

He is such a fun, cute image and so easy to color!  I had a lot of fun with this card!

Ok - so, I don't want to keep you too long, so let's get you moving on, ok?

Before you go, though, I would love it if you would leave me a comment and I'll select one random winner to receive "Little Sock Monkey" absolutely free!  Be sure to leave your email so I can contact you!
