Hi, y’all! I’m Niki and 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 a love of all things paper. I started with scrapbooking, but that quickly morphed into quilling, and then to handmade greeting cards. My crafting style is clean and simple, not a lot of fussy details, just minimal and impactful designs with a feminine twist. I like clean lines, bold shapes, floral designs, and pops of color. When I’m not crafting, you can find me relaxing in the backyard, searching online for craft inspiration, or taking an interesting online course. I am so glad to be a part of the CutCardstock Design Team this year and I look forward to sharing projects, ideas and inspiration with you! Niki’s blog: Cardstoq
Hi, I’m Rubeena from A Rare Ruby Crafts. I live in NJ with my husband Steven and our two six-month old cats, Jack and Smudge. I have been papercrafting on and off since 2014, and I love being able to express myself through what I create. My style continues to develop as I learn new things and am inspired by other artists and creative people. I love using specialty paper, particularly gold glitter cardstock! When I’m not making cards, I like to explore watercoloring, acrylic painting, alcohol ink art, making bead bracelets and other jewelry, DIY home decor projects, and, of course, spending time with family and my cats. Professionally, I am a licensed social worker who likes to help other people learn and grow as well. I am excited to share my work with you while I am on the CutCardStock Design Team!
Hi, I’m Crystal Schneider I live in Missouri with my husband of 15 years and our two girls. I started to scrapbook many years ago I made my first albums in high school. I love to take a little time every day to create something crafty. Over the years I have tried almost every craft possible. Currently I am really enjoying water coloring and brush lettering.

My name is Heidi and my love of papercrafting began over 10 years ago creating scrapbooks for birthdays and fun events. Then, one day, I picked up a cardmaking magazine and fell in love with all the creative options stamps and dies had to offer. I find inspiration for my cards in all kinds of interesting places. You can find me over at my blog: Blue Scallop Creations
Hi! I’m Marcia and live in the beautiful four-season state of Michigan with my best friend and husband, Gary. We live on a lake and enjoy spending time biking and boating. I’ve been making my own cards for years. My first cards were simply pictures adhered to watercolor paper; pictures taken on vacations and/or scenery shots. Then I started scrapbooking. Scrapbooking morphed into card-making. It was love at first stamp. I have two step-daughters who have families of their own. Between them, we have six beautiful, active grandchildren. Some live nearby in Michigan and others live far away in Alaska. We visit both families often and enjoy many adventures together. Everything from milking goats to mountain biking. I’m so excited to be a part of the Cut Cardstock Design Team! Marcia’s blog: Marcia K Designs.
Hi, I am Lia Yu. I live in Albany, New York with my husband and our son and daughter. I love watercolor painting and started painting birthday and anniversary cards for my family members a few years ago. Then I joined a hobby group for card making where I learned a lot of cool techniques like heat embossing, ink smooshing, die cutting & color lifting etc. I got more praises for the cards I sent out. More old/new friends were connected because of these handmade kindness. As a full time electrical engineer (I often feel like that I am an artist under the cover of an engineer LOL) and a mom of two young kids, spare time is very precious to me. I tried to squeeze as much time as possible to nurture my card-making hobby, because I found myself really relaxed when I got my hands inky and crafty. I’m looking forward to share my projects with you and get inspired by each other.
Hi everyone! My name is Drew Conklin and I am a full-time marketing professional and do freelance graphic design work in my spare time. My husband and I moved to Houston, TX from Pennsylvania after we finished college and have been here about five years. I found myself in a very technical marketing role and missed being able to flex my creative muscles. This lead me to start doing special occasion designs for friends and family, expanding into my own business over the years. I love designing wedding suites, shower and party invitations, logos, and am venturing into digital illustration and lettering with my iPad pro. I’ve been using CutCardStock as my primary printer for my projects so I’m excited to share not only my designs, but their high-quality printing services with you all as well. You can see all of my work on Instagram @Designs_DB and on my Etsy shop DrewBarnhartDesigns.
