Hi, y’all! I’m Niki and I live in San Antonio, TX. I moved here in 2008, married my husband in 2010 and I have two stepkiddos – our eldest is a nuclear technician in the U.S. Navy. 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 a love of all things paper. I started with scrapbooking, but that quickly morphed into quilling, and then to handmade greeting cards. When I’m not crafting, you can find me relaxing in the backyard, learning all about new tech tools and software, or searching for craft inspiration at Target. Follow me on Instagram @cardstoq

I’m Kari and I’ve been card making since August 2009. I remember the feeling I had once I realized that this hobby was going to be a permanent creative outlet for me! It was introduced to me through a Stampin Up workshop and I’ve been hooked ever since. Not too long after that, I started my blog kwcarddesign.com followed by my YouTube channel. It’s been a fun journey learning new things, techniques, discovering what my style is and best of all, getting to know some great people within the community! Outside of card making, I am a kitty mama to Gracie and Saki. I’ve been married for 12 years and I work as an Administrative Assistant to the Director of Care Coordination at my local hospital part-time. I’m honored to be apart of the Hedgehog Hollow Design Team!!

Hi! I’m Laurel! I am short, love to laugh, am a Harry Potter fan-aholic, love breakfast for dinner, have a huge sweet tooth and love to papercraft! I live in Upstate New York with my husband, two children, and two dogs. My tagline is Simply Cardmaking because I aim to make cards using simple techniques anyone can do!

Hi. I’m Jenny! I came from England, but I’ve called New York home since 2010 where I live with my husband and daughter. I’ve been crafting my whole life but started making cards after my move to the US. I’m inspired by everyday surroundings – I’ve made cards based on shampoo bottles, building architecture and even subway posters! Cardmaking is my chill time after work at a bank in NYC.

I’m thrilled to be joining the Hedgehog Hollow Design Team! I’ve been married to my wonderful, supportive (should I say long-suffering? 😉 ) husband for 18 years, and we have two kiddos who keep me busy (“Hello, Mom’s Taxi Service!”). If I’m not carting my kids around or helping at their schools or with their after-school groups, you can usually find me in my craft room with ink on my fingers and a smile on my face. I can’t wait to share my creations with you!

Hey guys, I’m Jess! I’m a stay at home mom by day and a crafter whenever my kids are sleeping! I love Cardmaking, stamping, scrapbooking, mixed media, and all things sparkly. I’m a passionate creator and love to build up the crafting community with positivity and encouragement. When I’m not crafting or in the throes of momming, you can find me binge-watching Netflix, reading, or playing video games. I’m a huge Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings fan, so those are definitely some of my go-to choices.

I’ve been making cards for the better part of ten years. It is my passion! I love teaching other cardmakers how to do different techniques and use various products. But my heart rejoices when I’m teaching Copic coloring to fellow card makers. I love traditional rubber/clear stamps and Digi-stamps. On the personal side of things I’m single, 42 and have one dog (Jessie) and two kitties (Nina and Daisy). Sometimes they make an appearance in a video. Happy crafting!

Hello! I’m Kari VanNoy! I’ve been crafting for as long as I can remember, but it has only been in the last 10 years that I absolutely fell in love with card making. I craft and teach others card making skills in sunny Arizona. I love to see the look of wonder on others’ faces when they finally “get” heat embossing or ink blending or a new skill. I’ve been a guest designer for multiple companies, too. I’m married with 3 kids and live in Mesa, Arizona with my supportive husband and sweet dog. After my oldest son moved out, I converted the large bedroom into my DREAM CRAFT ROOM (well…almost dream craft room), where I continue to create and be inspired every day! My blog is www.SunshineInMyPocket.com. Follow me on Instagram at @kariavan!

Hello, I’m Amber Rain Davis. I live in Southern California with my husband, our 3 girls, and our adorable Swedish Vallhund. I’ve been artsy since I was little and was drawn to each hobby by way of color. Pretty crayons, pencils, fabric, beads, paper, you get the idea. I became a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) in 2017 and strangely that’s what got me into card making. I’ve been making cards for about 2.5 years and really fell in love with it during my journey to become an Altenew Educator. I’ve learned so much from the papercraft community and am so inspired by all the artists. I love to create, share, and teach and hope to inspire others to create pretty things.
