Design Team Announcement Part 2

 The 2nd moment you all have been waiting for....The rest of the Design Team.   

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

I am 30 years old and a full-fledged California girl. My high-school sweetheart and I have been married for two and a half years and it has been quite the adventure! We recently adopted our first furbaby, a dachshund named Shady. As you can imagine, he has been my primary scrap subject lately. I also love scrapping photos of my daily shenanigans and am STILL working on my wedding album (I know, I know). I have been a scrapbooker for twelve years but it really became a serious hobby within the last five. Primarily I like to do layouts but occasionally I'll make a card or altered item. When I am not scrapping, I love reading and taking trips to the beach. I am so excited to be joining The Memory Nest team.

Hi, I'm Crystal and I'm so excited to be on the summer design team at the Memory Nest. I live in Iowa with my husband and 2 beautiful daughters. I'm a stay at home mom so during the school year I have a lot of time to focus on my scrapbooking. In my free time I volunteer at school, work out and read other then scrapbooking (of course). I started scrapbooking about 11 years ago my first scrapbook was my wedding book. My style has changed a lot since then but I think it is always changing just like the trends you see in scrapbooking. My favorite color to scrapbook with is pink so I'm lucky most of my pages are about my girls. I love scrapbook challenges they make me think of different ways of scrapbooking that I would not think of on my own.

I have been scrapbooking for fifteen years - ever since I created my first scrapbook to chronicle a high school mission trip! I fell in love with the creative process of artfully capturing memories and have been hooked ever since. My personal style is classic and I favor a photo driven approach.

Jessica J
My name is Jessica and I live in sunny Southern California. I have been married to my husband for 8 years and have two wonderful children, Trinity 6 and Luke 4. I have been scrapbooking for 6 years and the majority of pages revolve around my children. I work full-time and enjoy my scrap breaks whenever I get a chance.

Hi! I'm Lenny. I'm an enthusiastic teacher. I teach French and my students are 12 - 14 years old.
It isn't always easy, it can be stressy and I have a lot of school work, but I always wanted to teach and I'm still loving it!!Whenever I have some free time, I wanna do something creative; it relaxes me!  Creative things that I love: scrapbooking, card making, floral arranging, baking, ...
I also love reading, traveling, gardening, going to the movies, ...
I love spending time with family and friends.
Daydreaming about meeting some of my crafty friends in real life ...
I live in Belgium but my n°1 favorite country is the USA!! About 20 years ago, our school did an exchange with an American school and I fell in love with that beautiful country ... I just love it over there! :)                                                                   

My name is Raechelle (pronounced like Rachel) Bellus. I am married and have a blended family of 6 beautiful children; five girls ages 13, 17, 18, 22, and 22 as well as a boy who is 23. Our family is blossoming; we have a daughter-in-law, a son-in-law, a grandson, and our first sweet granddaughter is due to arrive in October. We also have 2 dogs and 4 cats. I work part time in a lumberyard. It is a physical job, however I do spent a lot of time at a desk doing reports and various paperwork in addition to handling the lumber.
I have been scrapping for about 12 years now.  I enjoy creating layouts most often, but do enjoy making cards as well, and an occasional off the page item. I describe my style as mostly girly. I really enjoy mixing patterns, using butterflies, misting and twine, and I always try to use something from my stash for each layout. I love to read and make time just about every day to do so. I am excited to work with the challenges here at The Memory Nest and am looking forward to sharing and being inspired by others who share my passion for paper. 


I live in Seattle, WA and I am a stay at home mommy of a little girl (who loves to work on her own "scrapbook" with mommy) and a baby brother on the way.  I have been scrapbooking since I was kid, but there wasn't much more than punches, solid colored paper, and stickers in the 90's.  So, I made a lot of my own embellishments and I still like to make a lot of my own to this day.  I also like to play handbells and juggle when I'm not scrapbooking or chasing my daughter around.

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