Meet the Scor-pal Team-Gini Cagle

Hello Scor-pal fans! I mentioned last week that we are going to be introducing the Scor-pal team over the next several days. Today, please meet Scor-pal Designer Gini Cagle.


I have been crafting all of my life, in one form or another. I was a very successful bead artist (you can see my work on my blog -http://ginicagle.blogspot.com/2009/11/my-beadwork.html ). I had my work published in over a dozen books and magazines, and lectured and taught all over the country, but...my beaded pieces took 500-1000 hours to complete. About 10 years ago, I started scrapbooking, when my first nephew was born. I instantly fell in love with the immediacy of the medium (compared to the crazy hours I spent beading!) In the past year or two, I have really gotten serious with the craft and love finding new ways to take my pieces to the next level. It's really funny to look at any of my work, from beadwork to paper and to be able to see the same style emerge, regardless of the medium. I have always loved dimension, and color and layers.

Paper crafting is really a family thing for me. My sister and l used to get together once a week to craft , but now she has moved right next door - so it's one big crafting party. And of course, my five year old nephew wants in on the action as well! My husband doesn't ever craft with me, but he is my biggest cheerleader, and is always supportive of what I do. We have been married for two years. We have a fairytale romance - we knew each other in high school and were friends, but went over 20 years without any contact, and reconnected on Facebook and quickly knew we were meant to be together. I work as a dental hygienist, so creating with paper is always a welcomed release!

Here is just one of the gorgeous creations that Gini has made using her Scor-pal:
