Hello! My name is Lori, and I am married to my best friend who understands my need for craft time! We have
3 boys ages 23, 18 and 7. I have been a life-long crafter starting way back in
Brownies and 4H. I currently am obsessed with paper crafting and vinyl
crafting. I have an in-home day care and love to craft with my children! I
also love to make new things out of old things!
I am super excited to be part
of The Buckle Boutique Design Team!
This Autumn, our next Design Team member marks her fourth year that she’s been papercrafting — ever since hearing the first chirp of a Cricut in October 2009. Ellen “CardMonkey” Jarvis actively blogs from The Paper Jungle – the second floor of her home in Warminster, PA — publishing at http://cardmonkeyspaperjungle.com/. She most enjoys cardmaking and making 3-D gifts using paper; when push comes to shove, she’ll scrapbook. She uses many tools including Cricut Expression 1 and 2, and Silhouette Cameo and Portrait.
Ellen became an Independent Consultant for Close To My Heart in January 2013; within 6 months, she’d been promoted to Supervisor as her Paper Jungle team grew. This year, she also started teaching papercrafting at both Joann Stores and at Kathy Davis Studios (Horsham, PA). In addition to her design team work with The Buckle Boutique, Ellen is on the creative team for Lovebug Creations (Rumple Ribbons); she also was the Season 1 winner on “Paper Craft Island,” and finished in the top three on Season 2. She received her Intermediate Certification in Copics a year ago.
A former public relations/marketing professional in the health care industry, Ellen retired in December 2012. She resides with her husband John, and is the happiest grandma, “Gii”, to Charlotte, age 2.5, and mom to Emily, age 28. When she’s not crafting (which is like never!), CardMonkey likes to cruise, shoot photographs, and make beaded jewelry.
