I am a retired nurse rediscovering my artistic roots. I make handmade cards, and sometimes include small works of art on my blog as well. I will provide a primary products list and a description of the techniques that I used to make each card, and give credit for layout or design of a card if not of my own unique creation.

Cherrylana Design Team Call
Hi! My name is Jill Taylor. I am very interested in applying for Cherrylana's Design Team. It may be too late, as I just saw the posting for the first time about 20 minutes ago (Feb. 20, 2018 at 8:45pm, PMT). That's in Montana, USA. So this application may be a few hours late. I'm not sure, but thought I'd go for it anyway! To achieve your dreams, you need to take a chance, stretch yourself.
I have been crafting for about 11 years now. Started with scrapbooking, then discovered I really preferred card-making. I was a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for 4 years, then moved to Montana and chose to expand my crafting world by using other products and tools, taking on-line classes on card-making, Copic coloring and water-coloring. I'd been posting on Instagram for some time, but decided to start my own blog as I was entering various challenges (won a couple of them), as well as received some honorable mentions. I was a guest designer for The Ton in August of 2017 after winning one of their monthly challenges. I was featured on Trending with the Ton a few times as well. More recently I've been on the Design Team for Kennedy Grace Creations since last September and I have been invited to be a guest designer several times for The 7 Kids Craft Supply Store. They post on Facebook as 7 Kids Customers Create! I see myself as a colorist primarily. I love Copics, Distress Inks and Oxides, and water-colors. My style does vary a bit as I like to experiment. I do love florals, fairies and critters as far as stamps go. I love the creative process, and as I have learned from others, I feel it is time to share back some of what I have learned. I feel being on a Design Team is a great way to do that. I also like to work on a team and collaborate, share ideas, etc. I follow Cherrylana Designs and love your stamp designs. It would be a privilege to be on your team, promoting your quality products.
