Meet Christy Tomlinson

I have been paper crafting and scrapbooking for over 10 years and still love it today! I had the great opportunity to work for Chatterbox as their Educational and Marketing Director for 3 years and then left to pursue other adventures in my life (including being a stay at home mom to my 6 kids and wife to hubby Ben. When I left Chatterbox, I started a new adventure working for Making Memories as a book and project designer, and also accepted a position as a Contributing Editor for Scrapbooks Etc, Better Homes and Gardens Magazine. In the Fall of 2007, with the encouragement of my husband, I decided to venture out on my own and start Scarlet Lime. Over the course of a year, Scarlet Lime grew much more than we expected and now that is what we both do full time. We love our job! In 2009, we also started a sister company called Scarlet Lime BeadArt! Our BeadArt website carries Jewelry supplies including fun unique beads and charms and DIY kits as well! And why the name Scarlet Lime? Well to be honest, it’s simple. My favorite color is and always has been red, scarlet red, and lime flavored anything is my absolutely my favorite treat. The idea behind the kit club was to bring together all sort of patterns, textures, and styles; mix modern with vintage, funky with chic. So Scarlet and Lime, two things you normally wouldn’t put together,( but two things I love), just seemed to be the perfect fit!
