Design Team Member ~ Debbie Sherman

Welcome Debbie Sherman to the Design Team!!

I'm Debbie and I live in Wyoming with my husband Jeff and our 2 Labs Mojo and Pearl. I'm also a grandmother of 7, who inspire me everyday, they are the reason I started scrapping!
I have been involved with one craft of another all my life.  I started out beading jewelry when I was about 7 and sewing when I was 12. One day I discovered scrap booking and then it became an obsession/passion!  My husband thinks I'm a hoarder now but I say I'm just well supplied. My style varies and over the years has changed.  One day I can be in a Shabby Chic mood and the next day  I find myself elbow deep in paint and art places, flea markets, family, grandkids, old and vintage and color.

I'm an avid photographer and have been blessed with many professional photo opportunities. I spend time with my camera daily. More photos = more scrapping!!

I'm beyond honored to be designing for Die-Namites. 

Styles and Techniques
My scrap booking style varies depending on a variety of things, mostly on the product I'm using. My inspirations are derived from a variety of people, places and things, which may or may not include, flea markets, vintage homes, museums, my favorite scrappers, photos, kids and in general. I let products influence my style along with new trends and techniques. For me it’s the variety that keeps it interesting and may even dictate a new style. My signature style almost always includes circles, stitching and 3-d elements with a shabby chic look. I love the romantic look of flourishes, crystals, flowers and stamping. I scrap mostly 12x12 LOs and strive for a variety of textures in each one. I also love mixed media and everything that goes with it. I use patterned paper for making my own embellishments and lean towards lots of layering. I love altering projects, making and giving my own handmade cards. 

I'd like to share my first project with Die~Namites Dies with you.  I used the Lilacs die to create the background of this card.

This is a close of the die-cut. 
Don't you love how intricate it is. 
I highlighted it with ink and then added a little bling to bring out the flowers.
