Keilly Mulvihill - Keilly's Little Blog
I have been with my partner, Jim, for 17 years and we have two gorgeous boys who are 7 and 5. I live in Hertfordshire, UK and have a part time office job. When not working or looking after my family, I like to let my creativity flow and enjoy all crafts with my favourite being cardmaking, scrapbooking (both paper and digital) and various altered art projects. I have enjoyed playing with paper and glue since I was a child but love using ribbons, twine and lace in all my projects. It was my love of these gorgeous ribbons that helped me decide to set up the ribbon reel online shop and eventually this new challenge blog. I am so excited and hope that we can all be inspired by the projects that are created and shared.
Debbie Marcinkiewicz - Simple Treasures
I have been married for 25 years and have two wonderful sons, ages 21 & 20! I absolutely adore anything shabby and vintage and even live in a pink Victorian home filled with old treasures and antiques! My love for all things time worn and well loved carries over to my paper craft design work. My 'comfort' design style is shabby and just a little bit vintage! A card or project isn't 'done' in my book until it's piled high with lots of layers of shabby love. I enjoy adding lots of fun embellishments to my work such as lace, ribbons, trims, pearls, doilies and buttons ... it just gives the completed piece such character and helps to create mini masterpieces out of paper and glue! I am tickled pink to be designing for The Ribbon Reel and hope that I can inspire all the visitors here with my little handmade from the heart paper crafted treasures!
Pauline Pollington - Craft Obsession
My name is Pauline Pollington, and I'm a stay at home mum to three children, 2 girls and a boy. I live in Berkshire, UK, and have been married to David for almost 15 years. I discovered cardmaking about 3 years ago now, and I really enjoy discovering new techniques (of which there are many) and bloghopping, making new bloggie friends along the way. This is my first design team post, and I am truly honoured to be in a team with such talented ladies.
Zuzana Obert - Jelly Welly
My name is Zuzana Obert I've been married for 3 years and live with my lovely husband Boris in Kingston Upon Thames in UK. All my life I have loved art and craft. As a child I designed some jewellery for my sister and me. When I got a little older, I found that I loved to paint. About three years ago I discovered paper crafting and designed my whole wedding stationary. Everybody was so surprised and amazed. For me to design cards, playing with paper, glue and all fabulous embellishments is the most creative release. I am still learning new techniques, and collecting new experiences. I try to challenge myself each time I create card and make something unique, whether it's cute, bold or shabby. Seeing the smiles on the faces of someone I give a card to is priceless. Ribbons are the most yummy card embellishments so I am very thrilled to design for The Ribbon Reel.
