Hello and Greetings Everyone!

We are so excited about the new events and products comeing down the road for Gecko excited we wanted to share all the big news with you!

First we want to welcome all our new design team members to the team and wanted to introduce them to you!


has been paper crafting since 2006. She loves
making cards, chipboard books and scrapbook
albums. She also enjoys taking classes and
watching you tube tutorials to learn new

Her favorite embellishments are lace, ribbon,
stickles, ephemera and flowers! She is a firm
believer that if her project doesn't have stickles
on it, it isn't complete!

her mom, Paula Williams, is also on the Gecko
Galz Design Team and she is so happy that they
get to share such a fun hobby together!


My name is Carol Salisbury. I have been a
scrapper for 8 or 9 yrs now. What started out as a
small idea snowballed into a big obsession! Love
lot's of pretty papers, flowers, ribbons & lace and
all the little goodies you can stick on a page.
From there I started making my own cards and
that was it! Holidays, birthdays, thank you's...No
turning back now! My style leans toward vintage
& shabby chic.

Two summers ago, looking for ideas, I got on the
internet and found scrapbooking sites, card
makers and blogs. I've met a bunch of wonderful
people online who share my obsession and have
learned a lot of things. I am now not just a
scrapper or a card maker, I am also making mini
albums, altering notebooks & boxes...anything
that sitting on my desk for too long it is at risk of
being altered too!  I'm making ATC's & tags as

Playing with digi images is one of my newer
obsessions. I love altering them. I love adding
them to a project just the way they are. They
always seem to add that little extra something
that I need on a project.

I look forward to more scrappiness and I hope
you'll join me in the fun.

 have been drawing for as long as I can
remember, I discovered scrap booking
over 10 years ago, and it still remains for
first love. Two years ago I started making
cards and that's lead to my true hearts
desire- collaging and mixed media. So of
course  I'm thrilled to be joining Gecko
Girls and I can't wait to start creating with
all the gorgeous kits.
I live with my family in New Zealand after
emmigrating 10 years ago from the UK.

My name is Jules Eickmeier and I am a retired
English teacher living
in a small fishing village on the Florida Gulf
Coast.  While my family
and grandchildren are my first passion, my
second is the sheer joy of
creating.  I have been playing with paper and
paste for about 15 years
and have spent the last 7 or so teaching paper
arts both nationally
and locally here in Florida.  I've been published in
several major
magazines and served on both ezines as a writer
and contributor and on
assorted design teams.  I am thrilled beyond
measure to be on the
Gecko Galz design team.

I’ve been crafting for at least half of my life & I
love all forms of crafting but especially paper
crafts and creating using fabric. I love all styles
but especially vintage & asian & I like to think
‘outside the box’. I have a passion for beautiful
papers and I love embellishments – of course I
have far too much of everything but what
crafter doesn’t!!! I like to make people smile
when they see my creations and I hope I
inspire others to create. I’m so excited to be
joining the Gecko Galz Design Team & look
forward to sharing my creations with everyone!
