Hello, my name is Deb Riddell and I live in British Columbia, Canada on a small acreage with my hubby and our beloved rescue dog. I started my creative journey as a watercolour and decorative painter but once I discovered mixed media and paper crafts I was hooked and am having so much fun exploring these art forms. I have been fortunate enough to be on several design teams and to have had my work published in a number of craft magazines and am really looking forward to being a part of this amazingly talented design team here at Therm-O-Web.

I was born and raised in Southern California, and have lived in South Orange County for 20 years. I have been paper crafting for over 15 years but love art in any form. I really enjoy mixed media because of the versatility and the “anything goes” nature of it but I will always enjoy creating mini albums as unique gifts and to showcase summer beach days and the family vacations I enjoy with my husband, two boys, and yorkie. I draw my inspiration from family first and then from things around me in my everyday life. After working in the legal field for over 20 years, I transitioned into a job in the crafting industry, working for Sizzix. I know that I am truly blessed to have found employment where I can practice my passion each and every day!

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to be here at Therm O Web. I currently live in North Carolina with my two adorable teenage kiddos, a wee hedgehog baby, and our adoptive Golden Retriever pup. I am the web director at a local landscape design and garden center, as well as a part-time writer and photographer. In my spare time, I love to go antiquing and thrifting, read, and of course, play with paper. I have been paper crafting for about a dozen years now. Love learning, and sharing, and I’m so excited to be a part of the Therm O Web Design Team.

Hello from sunny Southern California. My name is Shemaine, and I am a work at home mom to two wonderful kids. I’m lucky to be married to a great guy who gets my wicked obsession for creating with paper and doesn’t mind me leaving a trail of scraps all over our home.
A few things you might not know about me,  I love Good & Plenty candy, walks along the strand in Manhattan Beach on Sundays with my family and I’m a crime show junkie to boot!  If my dreams of paper and glue forever were to fade, I can always become a profiler with all the knowledge I have gained from my obsessive watching.  Music is a must in my life, nothing inspires me more. I’ve been so blessed this year with exciting opportunities and great friendships, life is good.

My name is Rebecca Keppel and I have been scrapbooking in the modern sense of the word since 2005. I have a daughter (age 7), a son (age 5) and a husband who is (for the most part) supportive of my scrapbooking. Although I have been “journaling” and taking tons of pictures my whole life, it wasn’t until I saw scrapbooking as a whole that everything clicked for me and the obsession began! Besides recording memories and playing with the fun products, I love to learn new techniques and learn more about photography. My favorite way to add texture and dimension to my projects is by sewing because I love the homemade, unique touch it adds. Besides making layouts, I love cardmaking and making gifts for family and friends.

Hi!  I Katrina and I live in Midwest USA! I am currently owned by four Cardigan Welsh Corgis, who appear in my layouts from time to time (or A LOT of the time)! I’ve discovered as an adult that I love to create and craft.   I was never the artsy type while growing up unless you count cutting my doll’s hair.  I have been scrapbooking since February 2009, when I decided to make a mini album for a friend. I discovered that I loved it!  Well, let’s just say after that I went nuts with the paper, scissors, and glue.  I love color, the more the better.  To define my style is hard, as I do what makes me happy. I like to scrap everyday life and things, you never know what the subject of my project might be!

Juliana grew up in a creative household loving art, design, and making things with her hands. She gives all the credit to her creative mother who loved to paint, sew and draw. Her mother also photographed her daily life and kept all of these photos stored and displayed in photo albums. Nearly 15 years ago she found her true passion in paper crafting and scrapbooking thanks to the combination of being exposed to these creative activities and photographic documentation of her daily life. Since 2008 she has been creating and sharing paper crafting projects on her blog.

She has been a project designer in the paper craft/scrapbook industry since 2007. Juliana has been fortunate to work for many top manufacturers including BoBunny, Bella Blvd, Elle’s Studio, SRM Stickers, Provocraft, Pebbles, and Jillibean Soup. Her projects have been published in a variety of magazines and idea books and she has had projects displayed at the Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show. Most recently she has begun creating graphics and product design as a graphic artist for Jillibean Soup.

Juliana is married to Danny, her best friend and the love of her life. She is also mom to a Golden Retriever named Lincoln and an American Paint Horse named Woody. She has a fondness for coffee, Mexican food, turtles and antiquing. In her spare time, she enjoys running, working out, cooking, and reading science and historical fiction.

My name is Carol Swift and I live in Southern Utah, but also spend time in Nevada where I grew up, married, and raised a family. I started my blog, Just Let Me Quilt, in 2008 to keep track of my sewing projects, but it grew to be much more for me and soon had me stepping out of my comfort zone by participating and hosting blog hops. With the encouragement of others, it opened up a whole new world of sewing for me and enabled me to be more creative and think outside the box. I enjoy trying new sewing techniques and love working with Therm O Web products.

My name is Carla Henton and I am thrilled to be part of the Therm-O-Web team.   I’ve been lucky to be surrounded by talented women all of my life starting with my mom and grandmother who taught me to sew and later with the great group of women who shaped me into a successful hairstylist.  So that’s me, deep rooted with an artsy side.

You’ll find me blogging about family and sewing adventures at Creatin’ in the Sticks. I live in a cabin in the country close to Dodge City, Kansas.  That’s where the blog name came from.   I’m the mother of two musical kids and the wife of my iron man (he’s a metal artist).  I love the online sewing community where there is always a challenge or quilt along to join.  I design sewing and quilting patterns along with tutorials and have organized blog hops and designed Blocks of the Month.  I’ve been a free motion quilter on my domestic machine for 15 years, but have just added a long arm to my arsenal.

Let’s go on a creative adventure…

Hi! I’m Becca, the seamstress and creative thinker behind Sunflower Seams and PDF Pattern Designer for Simple Life Pattern Company. I am also a wife to my handsome Airman and stay at home mom of two kids, ages 4 and 6. We currently reside in the beautiful Gulf Coast of Florida.  


I have always loved to create, whether it be at my sewing table, in the kitchen or a DIY project around the house. My passion for sewing started when I was pregnant with my daughter, Ava.  I wanted a diaper bag made out of my husband’s flight suit and so I dusted off my sewing machine, found a pattern, and got to work. I instantly got the sewing bug and made a couple dresses in time for Ava’s birth.  After that, I was hooked and sewing became my creative outlet.  As my passion for sewing grew so did my yearning to learn new techniques and try new projects.  I joined the SLPco team a few years ago as the social media coordinator and pattern designer. It has been an absolute dream job.  I am able to work at home doing what I love and still be available for my kiddos when they need me.

I am a mother, wife, artist, apple orchardist, retired civil engineer, and entrepreneur.

I’m a HUGE fan of online quilt alongs. Participating in them has really helped me hone my piecing skills and encouraged me to try things I never thought I would try (ie: New York Beauty Blocks). Also, they’ve been great for helping me use my scrap stash!

In 2010 I dreamed up Project QUILTING, and since then hundreds of quilts have been created and thousands of dollars worth of prizes have been awarded.

I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for creativity through teaching, lecturing, and blogging.

Hi! My name is Jacquelynne, and I just like to make stuff! I am an artist and illustrator, and I design fabric and quilt & sewing patterns for the quilting industry. I like to sew and cook and decorate and paint pretty pictures… and, oh yeah… eat too much chocolate! I believe that you don’t have to be an artiste̓, or a chef, or a professional photographer to live a creative life.

One of my favorite things to do is to put together my free e-magazine, called The Art of Home, about 4 times per year. In it, I share simple sewing and craft projects, fun and easy recipes, interesting designer and artist interviews, and cute art. In addition to that, I also host a free Block of the Month quilt event on my blog each year. My work has been featured in the American Patchwork and Quilting Calendar, Quilts & More Magazine, and Quiltmaker magazine.

Come along with me, I’d love to “meet” you!

Hi All! I’m Amy.  I am a stay-at-home mother of two.  I have enjoyed creating ever since I can remember.  I have fond childhood memories of painting Christmas ornaments with my family or learning a new crochet stitch from my grandmother.  Creating carried over into my adult life.

I started quilting and blogging in 2012 and I have loved it ever since.  I always try to do something a little different each time I cut into a piece of fabric.  When not creating in my sewing room,  I enjoy spending my time camping, fishing, working in my yard, and making my kids laugh.  I look forward to this new adventure working on the Therm-o-Web design team.
