Diane Agarwal - Owner
I am an army brat and grew up with a German mother who introduced me to this amazing paper and the art of making beautiful ornaments with it. This is traditional that most Germans learn. I have been making holiday stars for friends and family with it ever since I can remember and have had a dream of sharing it with everyone else. I have a daughter and a son who are now grown, and so I now have Rinea as my new baby…it is made up of the names of my kiddos (Ria & Neel). I am learning so much about new ways to use Rinea foiled paper for crafting, scrapbooking and home decor. I hope to be able to reach out to as many of you as possible and spark your creativity!

Nadine Carlier -  Design Team & Social Media Coordinator
I have been crafting for about 19 years now with scrapbooking, handmade cards, mixed media and altered art projects being my favorite things to create although I have done and love all things crafty. I would say my style would best be described as eclectic with a mixed media twist. Almost all my craft projects have some kind of mist or paint on them. I love getting messy and trying new techniques. Creating videos sharing how I create my projects is also a new found love of mine, subscribe to my YouTube channel to stay up to date on all my videos. You can also follow me on My Scrap'n'Stuff blog and on Facebook to see all my creations.

Betz Golden - Designer
I am a mixed media artist that got my start in scrapbooking in 1989 during my Freshman year of high school. I enjoy cards, canvases, planners and recycling things into art. My style has fluctuated over the years. However, I love using white space and tend to lean towards clean and simple. Even though I enjoy paints and mists, I prefer markers, colored pencils, and ink because they are cleaner. I am one of the rare non-messy artists! I reside in the southwest with my husband, three kids (ages 16, 14, and 12), three saltwater fish tanks and five dogs. My hobbies include traveling, reading, art, cooking and playing the piano.  Please find me at the following:

Steph Ackerman - Designer
I have been creating for as long as I can remember. I create a variety of projects from cards to canvases to mixed media projects and more. I do not start out with a plan in mind as I love to experiment and see what happens. I feel my day is not complete if I haven't spent some time creating. I can be found teaching at my local store as well as in my studio where I encourage my students to experiment and explore their creativity. I am a CHA Designer Member and have been published in numerous magazines.

Charity Hotrum - Designer
My name is Charity, and I have been scrapping since 1997. I have three teen/tween children, three cats, and a cozy home in Washington state.  I work as a caregiver to the homebound. On sunny days you can find me gardening or soaking up the beauty at one of our nearby parks. On rainy days I curl up with a favorite book or fill the house with the scent of fresh baked cookies. As a paper crafter, I work best in the morning hours. I love to wake up early, put on the coffee, and create glamorous off the page projects from ordinary items. Visit my blog Scrappin' Chaos for a taste of the unexpected!
Clair Rigby - Designer
I'm a thirty-something (though slightly nearer to forty-something than I would like to admit) who lives near Manchester in the UK. I love scrapbooking (mini-books and small sized layouts are my favorites) cardmaking and making pretty, little packages. I also adore beadwork and jewelry making and have a small 'side-hustle' writing beading tutorials and creating jewelry designs for my Etsy store, Obstinate Pursuit.

Martha Lucia Gomez - Designer

Martha Lucia Gomez. I was born in Colombia, but I live in Miami, USA. My first language is Spanish, which is why my blog is sometimes written in Spanish; but don’t worry, I have a translate button. I studied Social Communications and Journalism, but I've loved crafts forever. I used to work with metal jewelry, but one day I discovered stamps, ink, and paper, and now it is my passion. I've realized that working with paper crafts is the best therapy. 

I live with my husband and our two daughters. I divide my time between my family, my work in a Public Relations Company and my passions: my blog and crafting on various design teams. I love to create cards, 3D's and alter different projects because I love to learn new techniques.  I look forward to working on this Design Team and sharing my passion with all of you.

I love to travel, visit art galleries, try new foods and visit Disney, as a long-time Florida resident. I find my inspiration in simple things. My style is clean and simple but don't misunderstand me - I love the simple things plus the techniques and work involved in it. Experimenting new things is my passion and mixing products is my therapy. I love stamps, die cuts, stencils and of course all type of inks. I can tell you that I work on my crafts every single day and this is one of the ways that I found to give thanks to God for all that He gives me every day.

I love to share my creations, so you will always find me easily on Social Media outlets as Martha Lucia or Stampartpapel. Come and join me on my blog www.stampartpapel.com

Tanvi Shah - Designer
I am a microbiologist who loves everything paper. Crafting is a passion & along this creative journey I have dabbled into several crafts & paper crafting is my current addiction, particularly card making & decoupage. My story is the metamorphosis of a paper hoarder into a paper crafter! The colors, pattern & textures of paper always fascinated me. Paper & exclusive stationery constantly caught my attention. I loved playing with paints and paper and was avidly collecting different tools and media. A couple of years ago when I quit work, I started exploring ways to use these to keep myself occupied & came across crafting blogs & was surprised at the opportunities & satisfaction this hobby & the industry offered! That paved the path to serious crafting and blogging. I love new products & exploring techniques using them to create cards, bookmarks, mini albums & altering objects for home décor. Besides papercrafting, I enjoy photography.

Hi, my name is Yolie, AKA Yolie, {JustYolie}. I live in Southern California with my supportive husband, Michael, a true blessing in my life. I have been scrapbooking for almost 12 years and card making for about six years. I started my blog almost eight years ago, and that opened up a completely new crafting world for me. My style is more traditional; however, I have been dabbling in mixed media. I am super excited to be part of the Rinea family.
