Hi, y’all! I’m Niki from Cardstoq and I love all things crafty, colorful, and CaS (clean and simple)! I live in San Antonio, TX with my husband, two kiddos and a plethora of pets. I’ve been making pretty things as long as I can remember. As a child, I used to spend my money at the tiny craft store next to my grandmother’s house in outport Newfoundland, Canada. I graduated from pompoms and popsicle sticks to scrapbooking, but that quickly morphed into quilling and then to handmade greeting cards. I first discovered the magic that is my Silhouette CAMEO about a year into cardmaking, and I have never looked back. When I’m not crafting, you can find me relaxing in the backyard, searching online for the latest card challenges, or taking an interesting online course. I’m currently trying to teach myself hand lettering and how to improve my writing. I am so glad to be a part of Silhouette America’s design team this year and I look forward to sharing projects, ideas and inspiration with all of you!
