Design Team Announcement - Part 1

The moment you all have been waiting for....The Design Team Announcement.   

The Memory Nest would like to welcome the first group of talented and creative 
ladies ~ the Chickadees ~ to our nest.  I look forward to working with them and 
seeing what they create. 

Stop back tomorrow as we reveal the second group of ladies and their team name.

Scrapbooking has been a part of my life as long as I can remember!  High school, college, and other eras, but it wasn’t until 2001 that I was introduced to the “hobby” of scrapbooking and all the things that I could do!  Several years and pages later, I never stop finding photos or memories to scrap.   I love learning new ways to take this craft and sharing what I can with other crafters.  Besides scrapbooking, I love cardmaking and other crafts.  You can find me at

Hello, my name is Cassie. I am married and have two children. I work full-time as an Architect and Interior Designer by day and love to play with paper, glue and all sorts of crafty tools at night! I started scrapbooking about 7 years ago and it quickly led to card making. I love making cards because the canvas is small and I can finish a project pretty quickly. I love the quick satisfaction of completing a project! I do still scrapbook, but cards are more of a passion for me. I love to experiment with different styles from Clean and Simple to Shabby Chic. Other than paper crafting I love to crochet, knit, read, cook and decorate cakes and cookies.


Hello, I’m Jennifer Reilly and I’m so excited to be part of the design team at The Memory Nest!  I’m a work at home mom to two amazing boys – Liam and Collin – who are my inspiration. They have taught me so much about patience and strength, and they remind me every day how important it is to appreciate every moment. I scrapbook the good with the bad, because it’s all part of our story, and it’s my scrap-therapy!

Hi! I’m Kelli! Here are some things you should know about me: I am a wife to one husband and a mother to two funny boys and two furry kitties. I love to curl up and read a good book.  M&Ms are my favorite candy. I always cheer for the underdog. I made my first scrapbook at age 14 in a magnetic album with hand drawn rainbow bubble letters for titles. I’ve been hoarding collecting crafty supplies ever since. My style (and handwriting) has changed significantly since those teenage days, but I still love playing with my supplies and creating albums especially about the funny things my kids say and do. In recent years, I’ve taught at local scrapbook stores and am now teaching scrapbooking tips and tricks on my website, and my YouTube channel. I love teaching and interacting with scrapbookers                                             from all over the world. I am thrilled to be on The Memory Nest Design Team!

Hello, my name is Rachel. I am 32 years old and have been married to my husband Steve for nine years. We have two little girls, Bridget is 6 and Claire is 3. I have been scrapbooking for about ten years and love telling the stories behind the pictures on my layouts. I also love designing and making cards. My favorite technique when scrapbooking and card making is to combine different patterned papers – I am definitely a paper girl! In addition to paper crafting, I like to crochet, sew, bake, garden, camp, travel, take photographs and read. Most days, I drink way too much coffee. My favorite season is autumn. I wish I lived near the ocean.

My name is Sally Cranney.  I've been scrapbooking for a little over 17 years, shortly after my first daughter was born so that I could document her life.  Since then I have just grown more addicted to scrapping then every before.  I love to create!  It just fills something inside of me and creates happiness in my life.  I love a good challenge as it gives me a direction as well as pushes me to think outside my box. My favorite techniques you'll see on my layouts include mixing patterned papers, sewing, distressing edges and, lately, mist/paint splattering.  By day I work as an part time Energy Healer, doing the bookwork for our own Real Estate Appraisal company, as well as creating layout kits for my etsy store.  I have 3 great kids: my oldest just finished her 2nd year of college and we have 2 boys ages 15 and 13.  My dh and I, who have been married for 22 years,  live in Meridian, Idaho.  I am thrilled to be a part of this team at The Memory Nest and look forward to getting to know each of 

"Hi you! Here’s Terhi, aka. Tellimaria. I'm 26 year old scrapbooker, mother, crafter, horseback-rider, employee and wonderful person from Finland.  I've been scrapping for two years now, and I couldn't imagine life without it anymore. Every joke is a possible title for the next layout, and every picture I take is something to play with, scrapbooking is more than hobby for me, it's a lifestyle.  My scrap style is quite "Scandinavian", lots of straight lines, harmony color themes with good sense of humor.
I like to archive memories of my daughters growing, and also everyday life: nature, nice little details and moments I want to remember. Let’s be creative together!"

We hope you will join these lovely ladies and play along with the challenges.
Happy Creating!
