February Project of the Month – A New Etsy Shop!

This month I’m excited to share the opening of my new Etsy shop with my Handmade Greeting Cards:  CardzByDeeZyne.etsy.com  CardsByDeeZyne

I already have an Etsy shop for my Handmade Sea Glass Jewelry:  ByDeeZyne.etsy.com ByDeeZyne and I still get a kick out of getting orders from all over the country and the world but I have become obsessed with card making of late and thought I would open a second Etsy shop with my cards.

I am just starting out and even though I’ve been involved with Etsy for some time now, I am finding there are still some challenges with starting a new shop.  It will take some time to get it off the ground and perfect my “product” and find my niche.  I just hope that people are still sending snail mail.  I send out cards to friends and family all the time and I know I love receiving mail myself but I today it is all about email and social media.  I love tech but it isn’t the same as a had written note or letter.

I hope you will visit both my shops.  I welcome custom orders and would be happy to work with you to design cards or jewelry just for you.

I’m adding more cards all the time:



November Project of the Month – Thank you cards for my Etsy store

This month I decided to change up the thank you notes that I send out with my Etsy orders (bydeezyne.etsy.com).  I love making hand made cards and always send a thank you note but usually they are computer generated.  This month I decided to make them with my stamp sets to satisfy my card making obsession.

Much more fun!  The cards below are a new set from Avery Elle called Berry Good.  I stamped the first card with black ink but then decided to emboss the rest with black embossing powder.  I colored the peaches with Stampin’ Up colored pencils and their watercolor blender.  I added some rhinestones just because.


Here are some more 3 x 3 thank you notes.  These were quick and easy.  I put strips of washi tape on card stock and die cut the stars.  I embossed and scored the card base and added the sunshine washi tape and attached the stars with dimensionals.  Love the results!



August POTM – Jewelry Reorganization

Now that our construction projects are finally completed I felt it was a good time to organize.  My first project was to reorganize my jewelry storage so that it wasn’t “junking up” the new bathroom counter tops.

I used a bulletin board from Michael’s covered with Stampin’Up decorative paper and TONS of Command hooks to organize my necklaces and bracelets.  I installed a HomeDepot shelf for my Lucite earring containers. And the leftover bangle bracelets went on an old belt hanger.  I also hung my hair bows on a ribbon.

Now I can see everything and get at it easily but it isn’t “in your face” and my new bathrooms still look neat.
