Welcoming . . .

Hi!  I'm Dee Morris aka Sprytebyrd and crafting is my life!  I have dabbled in beadwork, sewing, quilting and knitting, but papercrafts is where my heart is at!  Cutting paper relaxes me and the instant gratification of stamping an image onto paper makes me happy.  I can't draw, therefore, I stamp!  I love ink and paper, but digital stamps have also captured my interest!  I have an addiction to die cuts and have just now realized that I am running out of room to store all of my dies!  Dies with coordinating stamp sets are my weakness right now and I am trying to find a great way to store them all together, so that I can remember to use them.  The biggest problem with my craft room is the "out of sight, out of mind" issue.. if I can't see it, I won't use it!  So, my craft room tends to be messy!  So, a little more about me:  I am married to a wonderfully supportive Hubby, who just smiles and nods when I say I need more supplies!  I have 2 amazing children who keep me on my toes and drive me crazy on a regular basis.  I have 2 rescue dogs, a retired Greyhound and a pampered chihuahua.  I'm a Army Brat, proud to be an American and as Patriotic as they come.  Yours in crafting, Dee xx

"I am an army wife, mom of four (mostly) grown kids, and currently living in Pensacola, FL in the US. I have been stamping for almost 15 years now, but I have been a crafter forever!  I remember making Christmas gifts for my family at a young age and being so excited about doing it all by myself.  Discovering digital stamps and the online crafting world has been an amazing journey!  I am so excited to be joining this team and creating project to inspire you!"

Welcoming . . .

Hi, I am a French single mum, with a 20 year old daughter who is studying French literature. I am my "own" boss been so for a few months. I have a newsagent in my local village. I have discovered crafting with an English friend a few years ago, and have never stopped since that day. I mostly make cards, but also do frames (even if I don't have as much time as before now).

Welcoming . . .

I began scrapbooking in 2005 when my first child was born premature. I was struck by an urgent need to document her life. I made a special connection with crafting once I realized that I have the ‘artist gene’ passed down by my late father who was a professional painter and artist. He always took lots of pictures of the family and created albums with detailed info on the picture backs – scrapbooking and journaling!

My crafting is truly my heart and soul displayed for all to see. It evokes emotion; sometimes laughter, other times tears. My craft style is clean and simple. I am very adept at making one-of-a-kind cards; however I scrapbook and dabble in home accents as well. One of my specialties is instant scrapbook pages to document a baby's first year. 

I love taking classes and learning new techniques on YouTube. Sharing the information I learn on my blog is key. I like to know that I have helped and/or inspired someone to get creative. My favorite techniques are stamping (physical and digital), masking, using Tim Holtz Distress Ink to create backgrounds, dry and heat embossing, coloring with Copics or Tim Holtz Distress watercolor markers, mosaic layouts, paper piecing with die cuts, using flowers, ribbon, bling or glitter to add that wow factor. In my layouts, the pictures are the star, however I love to set the scene in order for those pictures to shine. 

I became Copic certified in July 2014 to the intermediate level and attended additional workshops this September. I blog and post regularly to Twitter, Facebook (fan page and 20 craft groups), Pinterest (and sometimes Instagram) where I inspire others. In 2011, my passion turned into profit when I opened a small, home-based business, named C’est La-Vie Designs Unlimited, LLC. I love to create unique crafts for clients on an appointment only basis. I do it all for the love of crafting!
