Meet Kendra!

May 18th

Hello, Memory Bound Friends!

At Memory Bound we believe we have the most talented, creative, and fun staff and we thought it would be fun for you all to get to know our little MB family a bit better! So each week we are going to introduce you to one of our staff members! We hope you enjoy!

This week we are featuring Kendra! Kendra has a very special way of encouraging those around her, and we are so happy she is part of our Memory Bound family! Kendra is an avid paper crafter and enjoys scrapbooking, card making, and Bible journaling. She and Val have recently started teaching our Bible Journaling class.

We asked Kendra to share with us some of her favorite projects. Here’s an awesome scrapbook page from her son’s senior year of football:


Here’s another adorable page from a family trip to Colorado!


After Kendra’s daughter got married, she made not one but THREE beautiful wedding albums which inspired us all. What a treasure! You can see more of Kendra’s wedding album pages in this post. Here are a few of her favorite pages:




Kendra also makes wonderful cards like this one:


Here are some of Kendra’s Bible journaling pages. What a lovely way to document your faith journey!

Now here’s more from Kendra!


I live between Colfax and Mingo in the country. Yes, I’m a farm girl and love it! We raised sheep for many years. We have since retired from it, but we still love being in the country! My husband John is the Jasper County Sheriff and we have been married for 28 years. For 17 of those years, we have been remodeling our 2.5 story 1908 house.

We have a son and daughter that we enjoyed watching compete in 4H, FFA, and school events (we have scrapbooks to prove it!). We are very active in our community and church and are very excited to become grandparents in June!

I enjoy lots of different kinds of paper crafting, but my favorites are Bible journaling and using my Cricut and Big Shot. When I’m scrapbooking, my Cricut and Big Shot are always close by me. I love being able to complete my layout with that perfect embellishment!  My favorite paper crafting company is Doodlebug. I love the fun and bright colors and they always have a neat line. You should check out my paper stash! 🙂 LOL

If you’re visiting Iowa, everyone should go to the Iowa State Fair at least once. It is always fun to sit on a bench and people watch while you enjoy something on a stick!

I have lots of good memories from Memory Bound. The Christmas parties are always a highlight of the year. Staff crops are always a blast! (And what happens at a crop stays at a crop!) 🙂 I enjoy just working and having fun with the Memory Bound gals.  I also like helping customers find that perfect piece of paper or embellishment to complete their layout.

Memory Bound is a fun place to work — there is never a dull moment! Dawn and Kellie are great to their employees and the employees are fun. we are one big happy family!
