Cari Locken – Silhouette America Blog

Short Bio

HI there! I’m Cari Locken from Langley, BC, Canada. I’m a wife and mother of 3 amazing kids! I have been crafting since I was a child and love the creative outlet that this hobby brings to me. My formal training is in the area of music as I have a Masters degree in Music and I am currently teaching Band (to Grades 5, 6 & &) as well as private piano lessons. However I always find time to dig out my scrappy supplies and work on a few projects here & there. I love creating scrapbook layouts, preserving the everyday moments and special memories of our family life as well as creating cards & home decor items . Other than scrapbooking I enjoy spending time watching my children play sports, reading, knitting, photography and cooking. I’m thrilled to be a part of the Silhouette Team!

Where are you from?

I live in Surrey, British Columbia. I'm surrounded by beautiful mountains and ocean. What could be more perfect?

How long have you been a Silhouette user?

I think I started using my SIlhouette CAMEO about 6 years ago. It's opened up a whole new world of crafting for me!

What kind of materials or media do you use most?

Most of the time it's cardstock and printable papers/stickers, but I love using heat transfer material as well.

Where do you find your inspiration?

When it comes to scrapbooking, I find inspiration on Pinterest and Instagram. But if I'm looking for home decor ideas, I'll find inspiration from decorating stores, online sites, and nature.

Which Silhouette product do you like or use the most?

Hmmm. That's tough because I use so many products! I'll have to say my #1 is my CAMEO and #2 Adhesive Backed Cardstock.

Fun Facts about me

  • I'm claustrophobic.
  • I love (and I mean LOVE) my morning cup of coffee!
  • Spending time with my family is so important and one of the activities that we've started to do together is downhill skiing. So last year, at the young age of 47, I started to learn and I love hanging out with my family on the slopes. (Although they usually have to wait for me at the bottom!!)
