Cherrylana Design Team Application

Cherrylana Design Team Application: Karen Sessions

Hello, My name is Karen and this is my application for the Cherrylana Design Team.  My creative style is always feminine but varies from cute/whimsical to CAS/contemporary to sophisticated/eclectic to distressed vintage with shabby chic overtones.  Embellishing is my favorite part of the creating process where I select the perfect finishing touches that add dimension, as well as, add a bit of bling.  I love to add depth by building layers and creating backgrounds with different textures. I focus on the tiny details that add richness and impact to the project by choosing embellishments and colors that bring a sense of cohesion.

I first learned about rubber stamping as a teen in the late 80's and discovered that even though I was never able to draw or paint that I could use rubber stamps as the vehicle that allowed me to be creative and feel successful. Rubber stamping has been the paper craft that has consistently held my interest. I think my style can really compliment and accentuate all the lovely stamps at Cherrylana and I would love to feature these amazing products and be part of the inspirational team.

Teaching people is natural for me and also gives me the ability to write clear instructions with helpful tips.  I have over five years experience writing tutorial blog posts and would be a great addition for the DT as I am reliable and committed to originality.  My joy comes from the originality of the completed creation not from following design sketches or club kits. I am passionate about creating and combining randomness into beauty in a unique way. Creating things is magical and I hope you will see the love of crafting in every tiny detail of my projects.

Here are some of my most favorite projects.
