Craftin Memories with Cheryl

East Coast, United States
I joined Nomades on my wedding anniversary. My husband was looking at military jewelry so I went searching for something with special meaning and found this wonderful company! I saw so many charms to build the story of the military journey my family has been on for 30 yrs that becoming a Consultant was a simple step. I love that the silver charms represent memories and stories to those who choose them. I continue my journey with Stampin' Up! as well - a Demonstrator since 2001 ... my stamps allow me to express my creative side. Stampin has also brought new and special friendships to my life and makes moving and meeting new friends so much easier.

Grungeboard Bracelets

When it comes to my craft table come fair time I'd have to say that the poor people stopping by have so many different items to look at that seeing everything just isn't possible. I just cant seem to stick to ONE or TWO items and always need to be trying new things to use my stamps and Stampin Up accessories on. This week I broke out the grungeboard (non-Stampin Up) I'd purchased awhile back and went to town with my Stampin Up Impressions embossing folders and craft ink. I always love that no two items I make ever turn out the same, even when I try, so each is truly a "one of a kind".

Shadowbox page - Butterflies

Here is my adaptation of a page I saw done by Debi on Stampin Connection (she said she CASE'D Mary Jo but I couldnt find the sample she cased from). (I'll edit picture in morning when I can get a clean picture without glare/shadow) I used CURRENT merchandise - sets are the Dreams du Jour and Flores Suaves and all the card stock colors are from new collections. ....and because the gals I have coming to make this tomorrow will be doing some embossing I thought I'd take some of my new fabric and make them each a small hand made embossing buddy .... Used the scallop square die but the one I made with scallops facing out didnt turn out as well as when just turned them to inside (in which case a plain square works just fine.
