It;s time to introduce our new Design Team members!
Nancy Keslin is a paper crafter and mixed media artist focusing on scrapbook pages, mini albums, and home décor. You can find tutorials, both written and video on her blog, along with other creative inspiration. When not creating she can be found home schooling or driving her children; sometimes simultaneously.
I have been crafting since one of the neighborhood Moms, with her house full of boys, would bring all the girls on the block to her house and we would learn embroidery, friendship bracelets, sand art and Barbie doll couture. When I walked into my first Inkadinkadoo store, my love of rubber stamping began to bloom and I have never looked back. Now, with my full blown paper addiction, I have been blessed to have been published in several of the Stampington and Company stable of magazines, “RubberStampMadness” magazine and inclusion in Patricia Bolton’s book 1000 Artist Trading Cards. In addition, it was a great honor to be a guest Blogger two times for Bella Crafts blog. I am a current member of the 2015 Design Team for Decorate to Celebrate and was on the inaugural design team for The Inkpad, an independent stamping store in New York City. I am also a current member of CHA in the designer section.

Since childhood, I am happiest when I have paint and glue on my hands! Playing with new products and getting messy is time well spent in my book. I create a variety of mix media signs, cards, and altered art, and my creative style ranges from cute and fun to clean and simple which I sell in a local gallery called the Art MoB. My latest passion is lettering, typography and collecting quotes to add to my mixed media canvases. My grandest achievement so far, has been my being commissioned to paint a huge fiber glass bear which was auctioned off for charity in the end of the 2014 summer for $4,000.00 and I am commissioned again to design another one this spring. When I am not crafting I am photographing wildlife and hiking through our lovely North Carolina mountains. I am 56 years old, single and deliriously happy checking off my bucket list as I go along in life.
Hello from Utah. Madge Gillen here from The Scrappin’ Lounge
. I am a sassy fun loving redhead who is married to her high school sweetheart of 19 years. I have two beautiful daughters. I have been crafting for over 20 years. (Does that make me old EEK!!!) I used to only Scrapbook, then I decided to dabble a little in card making and home decor. I then branched out and decided to get my hands dirty in mixed media. Can I share a secret? I do not know how to sew, however, it is something that I would love to learn. When I am not spending time with my family and friends you can always find me in My Scrappin’ Lounge creating a little something! Music blasting and a Diet Coke in hand.
There is not a project that I don’t add a little bit of bling on. I love me some sparkle goodness! Something isn’t complete until it sparkles right??? I am honored and excited to be on The 2015 Buckle Boutique Design Team.
When I was a little girl, I used to ice skate competitively and loved designing my competition dresses covered with hand sewn rhinestones and sequins. I have always been creative, and love to work in many different areas of design, and enjoy working with different mediums. My background is in interior design, but I also enjoy graphic design, website design, visual marketing, photography and product surface design. I am constantly challenging myself to try new things and reach outside my comfort zone. I live in a beautiful small beach town in Southern California and I have been married to my BFF for 15 years. These days, I still ice skate in my spare time, and my 9 yr old daughter is a competitive skater. I still love creating beautiful things with rhinestones and I am so pleased to be a part of The Buckle Boutique Design Team!
